Sacred Symbols & Their Meanings

December 3, 2013


SACRED SYMBOLS & THEIR MEANINGS

Recently many of our wonderful Turiya’s customers have asked about some of the Sacred Symbols that are so beautifully displayed throughout the store. Here are a few of the Sacred Symbols and their meanings.

 Om
The OM Symbol

The Aum or OM symbol was birthed from Hindi origin. It is made up from three Sanskrit letters, aa, au and ma which when combined make the sound of Aum or Om. It is said to not only be the sound of the earth but the very sound of creation, which represents the ultimate power, the divine, and the eternal. The Om is shaped to represent all forms of human consciousness. The Om is used in chants, meditations and prayers.

Gaytri Yantra
Gaytri Yantra

The Gayatri Yantra is a sacred diagram that is a geometrical representation of the Gayatri Mantra. The Mantra was written in Sanskrit about 2500 to 3500 years ago, and the mantra may have been chanted for many centuries before that. This sacred Symbol assists one in receiving wisdom and realizing ones spiritual path and purpose.

spiral
The Spiral

The spiral is one of the oldest known symbols. It represents the concept of growth, expansion and cosmic energy. In this symbol there is no true beginning or end representing the ongoing life cycle. The spiral also reprents the Goddess, the womb and life force energy. It is reflected in nature from humans, plants and energy patterns. This sacred symbol reminds one of the evolving journey of life.

Hand of Fatima
Artist-Laura Heckford
Hamsa or Hand of Fatima

The Hamsa has been associated with both Muslim and Jewish communities for centuries. However it has pre-Monotheistic roots and is believed to have been created by the Phoenicians to honor their moon Goddess. There is much history surrounding the story of Fatima and her husband. It is said that the hand is a representation of Fatima’s patience. The hand is used throughout the world as a symbol of protection. It is believed that the eye often found in the palm is placed to ward off evil.

Luna Goddess
Luna Goddess

Luna is the Latin word for Moon. Many depictions of the Goddess were found from ancient beginnings. The Moon or Luna Goddess is found throughout the world in many different cultures. In many tribes the moon or Luna is associated with the divine feminine. The cycles of the moon related to the cycles of the feminine. The Lunar Goddess represents not only the Divine Feminine within but all of her aspects. This symbol is often used for fertility and acknowledgement of the Goddess herself.

Yin Yang
Yin Yang

The symbol of the Yin Yang dates back to about 1400-1100 BC. This sacred symbol is a representation of balance. The feminine and masculine character and principles are both represented as one cannot be balanced without the other. This symbol is used throughout the world in the use of medicine, energy work, Tai Chi and much more.

 

Wisdomeyesofthebuddha
Wisdom Eyes of the Buddha

This symbol represents the all seeing eyes of the Buddha, a symbol of the omnipresent compassion of the Bodhisattvas. The small dot depicted between the eyes represents the third eye, a symbol of spiritual awakening. The squiggle between the eyes is the Sanskrit numeral one, symbolizing the unity of all things. It is often found on Tibetan Stupas (temples). This symbol is a reminder to one to always see from the eyes of openness and compassion.

triskele
TRISKELE

The Triskele or also known as the Traide is an ancient symbol that has been found in a number of cultures throughout the world. The Celtic and most common version of the Triskele were found in the remnants of an ancient Bronze Aged Temple in Ireland. The Triskele is associated with many different beliefs. For some it is a symbol of reincarnation. Others it can be mind body spirit or any other significant representation of the number three.

Gratitude

November 14, 2013


If the only prayer you say in your life is “thank you,” that would suffice. ~Eckhart

There are many ways to say Thank You. Dankee, Shukran, do jeh, xie xie, dêkuji, tak, kiitos, Merci, danke, efharisto, Mahalo, toda, sukria, grazie, arigato, obrigado, gracias. However Gratitude is essentially the recognition of the unearned increments of value in one’s experience. It is the acknowledgment of the positive things that come our way that we did not actively work toward or ask for. The International Encyclopedia of Ethics defines gratitude as “the heart’s internal indicator on which the tally of gifts outweighs exchanges.” The Latin root of the word gratitude is grata or gratia—a given gift—and from this same root we get our word grace, which means a gift freely given that is unearned.

Gratitude is not just a virtue or spiritual practice it is a way of living. I call it the art of “giving Thanks.” We can begin practicing this art in our present moment wherever we find ourselves now. It is the art of seeing the forest through the trees, breaking it down to the simplest of things. Our breath that gives us life, our bodies that allow us to move or sunshine on a cold day. Whatever it may be for you, “The Art of Giving Thanks “for all that is right now. Sometimes we find it is so much easier to spend our energy and focus on what “Isn’t” rather than “What Is.” Gratitude is the opportunity for us to change our discord or unhappiness into subtle grace and peace. When we allow the spirit of gratitude to flow through us we give others permission to do the same.
In a world and society that is full of deadlines, taking care of kids, or pressures of being profitable in our expertise. Gratitude is the opportunity for one to center ourselves and ground in the grace that is in and all around us.

How Gratitude Can Change Your Life

Here are a few of the top research-based reasons that gratitude and improve your daily living. Through research by Emmons, happiness expert Sonja Lyubomirsky and other scientists practicing gratitude has proven to be one of the most reliable methods for increasing happiness and life satisfaction; it also boosts feelings of optimism, joy, pleasure, enthusiasm and other positive emotions. This also reduces anxiety and depression.

Gratitude is good for our bodies. Studies done by Emmons along with Michael McCullough suggest that gratitude strengthens the immune system. It lowers blood pressure, reduces symptoms of illness. It also encourages us to take better care of our health and exercise more.

Grateful people sleep better. Those who practice gratitude get more hours of sleep and spend less time awake before falling asleep.

Gratitude has the ability to help one to be more emotionally resilient. Research has shown that those practicing gratitude were able to recover from traumatic events, including war veterans with PTSD.

A simple way to begin a daily “Gratitude Practice” is starting a gratitude journal. This can be done in several ways but for those who are either just starting out or who find themselves strained for time, I suggest starting by writing your gratitude’s for 5 minutes for 30 days. This is a great place to start and for those who have children in their lives it’s a great way to bond. Simply have your child sit with you and allow them to make a gratitude list each day. It’s easy to teach a child to say Thank You but it can be more difficult to teach gratitude.

During this Holiday season of Thanksgiving we are given the opportunity to see the many blessings that befold in our daily living it’s different for each of us. Let us carry the spirit and energy of Gratitude and grace through out the year.

~Blessings,
Turiya’s

Samhain

October 30, 2013


Samhain
SAMHAIN

Samhain (pronounced Sow-en), dates back to the ancient Celts who lived 2,000 years ago. Samhain is a Celtic word meaning “summer’s end.” It is also called All Hallows Eve or the Witches New Year. In pagan tradition there are two Major Holidays Beltane (spring) and Samhain being the End of Harvest. This is the time when the veil to the spirit realm is lifted allowing us to honor and connect to our ancestors and those who have gone before us. This is an opportune time for us to speak to our friends in the fairy realm as the veil is thinned. This is the time to let go of the old to bring in the new.

Divination at Samhain

With the veil being lifted it is the perfect season to look for messages from the metaphysical. In the past this was a potent time for Prophecy and Fortune Telling. Apple Gourding used to be a way to answer a Yes or No question by the way the peel would fall. Scrying is one of the best-known forms of divination, and can be done in a variety of ways. Basically, it’s the practice of looking into some sort of reflective  surface like water, fire, glass or dark stones so that one may see what messages, symbols, or visions appear. A scrying mirror is a simple black-backed mirror, and it’s easy to make one yourself. There are many other forms of divination Tarot and Palm readings, Candle Magic, Tea Leaf readings and much more.

 

We have included this link on how to make and use a Scrying Mirror

Samhain2

Bonfires at Samhain

At sunset the clans or local villages would begin the formal ceremonies of Samhain by lighting a giant bonfire. People would gather around the fire to burn crops and offer sacrifices to the Celtic deities. It was a method of giving the Gods and Goddesses their share of the previous years herd or crops. In addition these sacred fires were a big part of the cleansing of the old year and a method to prepare for the coming new year. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes. They would tell stories and danced around the bonfire.

 

Many of these dances told stories played out the cycles of life and death or commemorated the cycle of  The Wheel of Life.

When the celebration was over, each family would take a torch or burning ember from the sacred bonfire and return to their home. The home fires that had been extinguished during the day for cleansing were then re-lit by the flame of the sacred bonfire to help protect the dwelling and it’s inhabitants during the coming winter. These fires were kept burning night and day during the next several months. With the hearth fires lit, families would place food and drink outside their doors to appease the roaming spirits who might play tricks on the family.

samhain3

The History of Jack-O-Lanterns

There are a few different legends of the Jack-O-Lantern. One of the stories being told is about a man named “Stingy Jack” and the other of the old Scots and Celts who would place a  carved turnip or pumpkin with a candle lit inside of it outside of their homes to scare of evil spirits.

The Samhain Alter

Samhain Alters are built for ritual, honor and divination. You are encouraged to use Sacred objects, Candles, Crystals, Herbs and Pictures of loved ones who have passed. The colors associated with Samhain are Orange, Black, White, Silver and Gold. The Herbs are  Mugwort, Allspice, Broom, Catnip, Deadly Nightshade, Mandrake, Oak Leaves and Sage. Stones of the season are anything black , preferably Jet or Obsidian.

 

samhain4

Wishing you a festive and magical Samhain and blessed end of harvest season.

Sacred Sage and Smudging

October 1, 2013


Sacred Sage and Smudging

SACRED SAGE AND SMUDGING

A Bit of History
It’s impossible to say for sure when the practice of smudging started. It is said that early civilizations came to realize, through sheer trial and error, that the smoke generated by setting alight particular herbs had beneficial effects. It is stated that sage was known to be used clear back in Egyptian times. From the Romans to the Middle ages Sage was used for it’s cleansing powers. The use of plant and resin smoke has long been a Northern Native American tradition used in ceremony for cleansing people, places and objects through herb smoke.

Why Smudge
The theory behind smudging is that the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as it clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space to be regenerated. Smudging is very effective when you’ve been feeling depressed, angry, resentful or unwell. It is also great to smudge yourself, the space and all the guests or participants before a ritual or ceremony or celebration. You can smudge your own auric field, the spaces of your home, car or work area. You can use smudging to cleanse crystals, gemstones, altars, sacred books, or any other spiritual item.

Different types of herbs used in Smudging Ceremony

Sage: Healing, Out with the bad:
There are two major genii and several varieties of each genus of Sage that are used for smudging. Salvia, or the herb sage used for cooking, comes in two major varieties: S. Officinalis, commonly known as Garden Sage, and S. Apiana, commonly known as White Sage. Salvia varieties have long been acknowledged as healing herbs, reflected in the fact that its genus name comes from the Latin root word “salvare”, which is the verb “to heal” or “to save.”

Sweetgrass: Blessing, Goodness and Warmth:
Sweetgrass is used for general blessing–for making a home a warm, inviting place. In these tribes, the sweetgrass is braided like hair. Sweetgrass is burnt after smudging with sage, to welcome in good influences after the bad had been driven out.

How to Smudge

Before you begin:
Cautions: Make sure the area you are smudging is well ventilated. This is a health precaution, as well as a spiritually practical one as well, as the negative energy will need an “escape route.”
-Do not use near infants or very young children; people with respiratory problems such as or asthma, or pregnant women.
- Never leave burning smudge unattended.
- Place some sand or soil or even salt in the bottom of the container to provide insulation as otherwise the container could scorch a surface it is placed upon.

Begin Smudging
Focus on your intent:
Any action, undertaken with intention and belief can become potent ritual.
Consider your intention before you smudge and hold it clearly in your mind. You
may wish to invite the spirit of the herbs to join you and guide and assist with
your intention.

A candle flame is recommended to light the herbs as it may
take a little time to get the herb smoking. Once there’s a flame, put it out so
that the herb is smoldering, not burning. Wave the flame with your hand or
feather to put out the fire. Allow the smudge herbs to smolder, freeing the
smoke to circle in the air.

If you are smudging a group, smudge yourself first.

Smudging yourself
Fan the swirls of smoke around your body from head to toe with your hands or
feather. (Blowing the smoke is not encouraged as this is considered as blowing
negativity into the smoke.).You may want to especially focus on chakra areas
where you feel there are blockages or where there has been or is physical,
emotional, or psychic pain. Visualize the smoke lifting away all the negative
thoughts, emotions and energies that have attached themselves to you.

Smudging another
It is often appropriate to smudge guests as they enter the space at a ritual,
ceremony or special event. Smudge as if you were smudging yourself, fanning the
smoke all over their body. You may want to speak an intention or a suggestion
for the smudging as you do it.

Smudging a room or space
For cleansing a house, first offer smoke to the four directions outside the house,
starting with the east, then south, west and ending with the north. Beginning
with the lowest level of your house, and moving upward, light the smudge and
wall about the perimeter, giving special attention to the corners and the places
behind doors. You can also fan the smoke throughout the room with a large
feather. Repeat the following either out loud, or in your mind: I break up and
release all negative and stagnant energy in this place. May peace light and
divine love protect us and be ever present.

Cleansing objects
Hold the objects to be purified in the smoke or fan the smoke over them. If
you are clearing your crystals prior to programming them thank both them and the herbs for helping you to realize your goals.

Extinguishing the smudge
Have ready a fireproof receptacle such as another shell or a glass or ceramic dish to put the smudge in when you’ve finished. It’s ideal to damp the herb out in sand, or earth or you can just press it against the bottom of the receptacle. Always make sure that a smoldering smudge herb is out before leaving the room where you keep it.
Come visit Turiya’s! We have a wonderful selection of Sage, Sweetgrass, abalone and books related to Sage and Smudging.
Blessings~

Autumn Equinox

September 22, 2013


Fall Equinox

Equinoxes occur twice a year spring and fall when the earth’s two hemispheres are receiving the sun’s rays equally. Night and day are approximately equal in length. During the Fall or Autumn Equinox this signals the need for us to balance both the dark and the light within us. To often we find ourselves fearing the dark and adoring the light.  In the book Little Pieces of Light by Joyce Rupp, she writes; “I gratefully acknowledge how darkness has become less of an enemy for me and more of a place of silent nurturance, where the slow, steady gestation needed for my soul’s growth can occur. Not only is light a welcomed part of my life, but I am also developing a greater understanding of how much I need to befriend my inner darkness.”

As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we see nature’s cycles mirrored in our lives. This is a time for letting go and releasing those things that have become a burden. Fall is the right time to practice getting out of the way and letting Spirit take charge of our lives. There is a wonderful Releasing Ceremony that is used here at Turiya’s often with our Burden Basket. To preform this simple ceremony you first create a sacred space and ground yourself. You can either use a candle, fireplace or outside fire. You write down what you would like to release on a piece of paper. When you’re ready you burn it as you hold the intention of release.

Autumn reminds us of the impermanence of everything. We experience the budding of life in spring and the flowerings of summer. Now the leaves fall and bare branches remind us of the fleeting nature of all things. During time of change and release it’s important to focus on our bodies with grace and ease. It’s easy to get caught up in our critical minds instead of focusing on love consciousness. This doesn’t help our bodies to feel loved. This is a time when we feel a natural inclination to take better care our bodies; sometimes with this natural rhythm resistance can occur. Below are some simple steps to self-care during this time of transition.

* Drink herbal teas; warm on those cool mornings, cold teas on “Indian Summer” days.
* Allow yourself to get plenty of rest.
* Take walks or participate in some type of spirit based movement practice.
* Take baths with Epsom Salt and Essential Oils.
* Stay hydrated and choose to obtain from refined sugars or processed food.
* Gently touch your body often; place your hands on your belly, rub your feet or hands.
* Breathe deeply and laugh often.

Please note that none of these suggestions take the place of the guidance from a Physician. Check with your own Physician about specific practices that can be supportive for your own body’s conditions and sensitivities.

Equinox Blessings to all,

Your Turiya’s Tribe

Make your own crystal elixir today!

June 6, 2013


Crystal-Elixir

Have you ever made a crystal elixir? It’s a fantastic way to enjoy and absorb the healing energies of crystals.  Instead of drinking sodas, juices, or energy drinks – try a tall glass of water infused with crystal power!  Or make your next bath an incredible spa experience by adding crystals to your tub, either directly or as part of a tincture.  You can also add crystals to a mister to spray around a room and dramatically shift the energy.  Crystals love to be in the water and you will love to watch them sparkle and shine!

Choosing the right crystal for your elixir is extremely important.  Always choose a tumbled crystal rather than a raw mineral.  Clean it with water & soap to remove any impurities it may have picked up.  Then place the crystal in water and allow its unique essence to slowly infuse the water.  For best results, allow the water to sit in direct sun or moon light for several hours.  Then drink, bath, or clean with the water and notice how good it feels!  Crystal elixirs should typically be used within one week and stored in a dark cool area of the house.

Most of the Turiya’s staff has their own favorite crystal elixir “recipe”.  One employee swears by “citrine water”.  She makes it in 3 or 5 gallon batches with a handful of tumbled citrines and then carries a half-gallon jug with two little citrines in it wherever she goes.  Not only does she stay well hydrated, she’s also “drinking abundance all day long”!  According to another employee, there is nothing more incredible than a “garnet bath”.  After a long day at work, she will take a bath infused with the passion and serenity of garnets and emerge relaxed and rejuvenated.  Yet another employee makes a divine “black tourmaline & rose quartz water” that she keeps in a spray bottle.  After infusing the crystals in water, she adds a mixture of 50 proof vodka and lavender essential oil as a preservative and for aromatherapy.  A light misting around a room clears negative energy and replaces it with peace and serenity.  It feels and smells incredible!

Most crystals can be used and reused many times.  Be aware that a few crystals are toxic (such as Malachite and Galena) while others may melt in the water (such as selenite), so be sure to research the physical properties of any crystal before using it in an elixir.  Or ask the friendly and knowledgeable staff at Turiya’s to assist you in finding the perfect crystal for your elixir.  You might want to try “clear quartz water” as a master healer.  Or you might enjoy “moonstone water” to sharpen your intuition and sooth emotional distress.  “Topaz water” can be used to replace an ultra-sugary energy drink, and recharge your body and mind.

Or combine a few crystals to super-charge your water! Imagine how easy it might be to find the courage to speak your truth and stay strong in your personal power after drinking or bathing in “Amethyst and Aquamarine water”! The options are endless and so fun to explore!

We would love to hear your favorite “recipe” for a crystal elixir.  What stones do you choose and how do you use them?

The Magical World of Crystals!

April 29, 2013


crystal therapy

At Turiya’s we are crazy-in-love with the magical world of crystals!   We are always looking for new ways to enjoy the healing power of crystals personally and to give our customers the most accurate and inspiring crystal information possible.  This blog is especially for those individuals who are just starting their exploration of crystals and may find themselves shyly asking, “So what is a crystal anyway?”

Crystals are a piece of our Mother Earth as old as the planet itself.  Crystals grow and transform slowly over the course of millions of years and so their “life force” is very different from that of humans, plants and animals.  Crystals can be formed out of a single mineral or a combination of minerals.  A crystal may be “crystal shaped” like those found in geodes, or it may look more like a “rock”.  The healing power of crystals lies in their ability to contain and transmit metaphysical energies and adjust subtle energetic vibrations.  Crystals absorb, focus, transmute, and transmit electromagnetic energy.  Like little cosmic transceivers, they bring energy down from the spiritual level so that it can be used on the physical, mental and emotional levels.

Mankind has been using crystals for their healing powers and ornamental beauty for tens of thousands of years.  Ancient crystal jewelry and talismans have been found in gravesites around the world, not only for our own species of Homo sapiens, but also for our hominid cousins such as Neanderthals.  Records for the healing powers of crystals can be found in the earliest writings in Egypt and China.  Belief in the power of crystals can be seen in the most primitive villages as well the most modern boardrooms.  Whether they look like simple stones or extravagant jewels, it is fair to say, that humans have always had a little bit of a love affair with these beautiful gifts from the earth.

Wearing crystals in jewelry is a very common and ancient way to utilize their healing properties and enjoy their beauty.  For example, a diamond wedding ring is believed to ensure love and fidelity between couples and to increase abundance and courage.  It is also a stone of “new beginnings” making it an appropriate jewel to grace an engagement or wedding ring! Every crystal has a variety of properties and so choosing the appropriate crystal to wear is simply a matter of study and following your intuition.

Another common way to utilize the healing power of crystals is to place them throughout the home.   Sometimes called “gridding” or used as a form of Feng Shui, crystals can be used to subtly change the energy in a room or space.  For example, golden Citrine might be placed in the “Wealth Corner” or in an office to attract abundance, while Rose Quarz would be best in the “Relationship Corner” or bedroom to maintain loving vibrations.

There are countless other ways to enjoy crystals! Whether you choose to follow the wisdom of the ancients or your own inner guidance, the magical world of crystals is worth exploring!  As you explore, don’t be shy to ask questions.  If there is a crystal or crystal technique you want to know more about, feel free to ask the Turiya’s staff anytime.  Or ask a question here and we will discuss it in a future blog! We are here to serve the crystal community – so welcome and please let us know how we can be of assistance!

What is your favorite use for your crystals? We would love to hear from you, leave your reply in the comments below!
Blessings Turiyas

The Healing Power of Crystals: Carnelian

November 12, 2012


One of our favorite healing stones at Turiya’s is Carnelian – a wonderfully vibrant orange crystal. We often describe carnelian with phrases like, “it feels like home, just safe and warm”, “carnelian is like comfort food”, or “its energy is like the Divine Mother, almost like being in the emotional safety of the womb.” It’s clear that for us, carnelian is among the most comforting of all stones!

The healing power of crystals has been extensively described in traditional stories and contemporary metaphysical lore. Crystal reference books such as, Love is in the Earth or The Crystal Bible; describe the specific healing powers and vibrations of each mineral. Although every reference book has its own perspective when describe carnelian, every crystal intuitive seems to sense the same basic energy signature. We all love carnelian and think its energy is yummy and good!

Carnelian has a well-deserved reputation as a powerful second chakra stone infused with life force and vitality. Yet its energy is also considered exceptionally soft and soothing. Carnelian helps to ground and stabilize energy, especially within the home, and protects against envy, fear, and rage. For individuals overcoming abuse of any kind, carnelian will help by gently banishing sorrow and encouraging acceptance and love. Carnelian teaches us to be in the present moment and awakens inherent talents and creativity by stimulating analytical capabilities and perceptiveness. Closely attuned to the physical body, carnelian can help increase physical energy and address issues surrounding sexuality and fertility as well as problems in the lower back and kidneys.

Even a novice, new to the world of crystal healing, can often intuitively sense the specific healing powers and vibrations of each stone. At Turiya’s we invite you to listen to your own inner wisdom and trust your intuition. How does carnelian feel to you?

We would love to hear how you describe the energy of this delightful healing stone!

The Healing Power of Stones; Auralite 23 Crystals

October 9, 2012


Beautiful stones with remarkable healing powers are being discovered all the time. At Turiya’s we are blessed with the opportunity to introduce people to the divine energy and high vibrations of these newest gifts of the earth. One of the most fascinating stones recently made available are Auralite 23 Crystals, available for purchase at Turiya’s physical and online stores.

Auralites are hand-mined from Canada’s “Cave of Wonders”, located in the Boreal Forest north of Lake Superior.  David Geiger, a crystal seller, first introduced us to these remarkable crystals and provided the current geological and metaphysical research on this new stone.  Available only as raw crystals, each auralite contain up to 23 distinct minerals! The average auralite crystal containing at least 17 of the following:

1.    Titantite

2.    Cacoxentite

3.    Lepidoscrosite

4.    Ajoite

5.    Hemitite

6.    Magnetite

7.    Pyrite

8.    Geothite

9.    Pyrolusite

10.   Gold

11.   Silver

12.   Platinum

13.   Nickel

14.   Copper

15.   Iron

16.   Limonite

17.   Sphalerite

18.   Covellite

19.   Chalcopyrite

20.   Gialite

21.   Epidote

22.   Bornite

23.   Rutile

 

Like the “Super Seven” stone, auralite’s healing power is a unique mixture of energetic vibrations.  Taken together, aurolite’s principle energy is to teach us that “all is one”. Auralite crystals help us see how we can evolve and heal from past pain, and guides us to sources that can benefit us. It is a stone that opens the mind and spirit, recognizing connections between our inner self and our outer life.  Auralite offers strength and wisdom as we align ourselves with our true path.

We have done our own meditations with auralite and found its energy crisp, calming, and empowering.  When our “Crystal Guru”, Jan held an auralite in her left hand, she discovered that its energy would travel up her arm and settle into the high heart chakra.  When she simultaneously held another stone, for example a carnelian, in her right hand, the auralite would dramatically amplify and ground the other stone’s energy.  She shared this experience with us and we began experimenting with various stones.  We can tell you from experience that holding an auralite and a Lumerian seed crystal at the same time is electrifying and pulses with power!  Perhaps the most beautiful moment in our crystal meditation was when Turiya’s owner, Kristen Dalzen, held an auralite to her heart and then softly crooned, “this is the world I remember.”

We would love to hear about any experiences you have had with an Auralite 23 crystal or any of the other recently discovered minerals! Help us tell the world about the healing powers and energy vibrations of these remarkable crystals.

Auralite is available for purchase.  Please visit Turiyas.com and call 801-531-7823
