You can transform your life if you choose. You can be healthier, happier, and more content. Ask yourself, do you feel spiritually fulfilled? Are you living at your optimum emotional level? Do you feel energetic, enthusiastic, and happy to face each day? Inner peace and higher awareness are available through many different paths, one of which is self-awareness, a powerful yet simple method for uniting body, mind, and spirit. Are you truly aware of what you think and feel daily? Have you noticed all the inner chatter repetitively circling through your mind? Self-awareness and being truly conscious of your thoughts, feelings, and actions can shift your reality and lead you to a deeply positive life experience. I truly believe a joyful life is yours for the taking.
But where should you begin? That's what I'm here to help you decide. A plethora of tools are available to you to help escalate your self-awareness and transform your life, ranging from the use of crystals, gemstones, color, sound, and scent to your intention (your active thoughts and desires), all of which can be used singularly or in combination. The ancient spiritual tools presented in this book—many of which are derived from Toltec wisdom as well as from the teachings of the Mayans, Incans, and Native Americans—can be used on a daily basis to effect and maintain positive change in one's life. Whatever tools you choose, what you are doing is working with the energy of life, using these techniques to harness the power of vibration.
Whatever the source, all energy vibrates outward and directly affects the additional vibrations it comes into contact with. You are one more element in this always-vibrating universe. Your emotions, thoughts, and life situations release energy and, therefore, vibrations. With relative ease, you can become aware of the energy you are releasing into the world and achieve vibrational harmony and positive change. In much the same way, this book will also help bring you into harmony with your chakra system. Whether this is your first or your fifth book about working with your chakras, I provide an avenue for a deeper understanding of the chakra system as it relates to vibrational harmony, or overall well-being. The chakras, vibrant energy centers located in and around your body, affect you on all levels—mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Your entire life experience—beliefs, long-held feelings, and the foundation established early on by family and friends—is crucial information stored within your chakras. As we delve into the characteristics and issues related to each of the seven main chakras, you'll be able to bring your life into better alignment just through becoming aware of what's stored within your consciousness—and it's your consciousness that creates your reality.
In this book, color, crystals, and the chakras are the main spiritual tools we'll use to restore balance to your life. help you understand colors and how they affect you, then build upon that knowledge by incorporating each of the chakras, all of which are associated with a color. Once you have a handle on this, you'll be able to use crystals based on their color for the purposes of focusing intent and creating positive affirmations.
I chose the tools in this book because the teachings and wisdom rang true for me. They were familiar and returned me to my center. As I put them into practice in my life, I improved myself on many levels. My method of practice is to constantly observe myself. I look at myself as an objective observer, as best as I can, to watch my actions and reactions. Through the simple tool of self-obser-vation with love and without judgment, I've transformed many challenges that have arisen. You, too, can incorporate the many principles and teachings into your own life and find more peace, compassion, and love for yourself and others.
ROCKS, CRYSTALS, AND STONES
Crystals can he used to recalibrate your personal energy to vibrate at a rate more conducive to communication with your higher wisdom and divine consciousness. Plus, they're simply beautiful.
The words crystals, gemstones, minerals, rocks, and stones are used interchangeably throughout this book. Crystals, such as quartz and other precious and semi-precious stones, each vibrate at a specific rate. Quartz crystals, including amethyst, citrine, rose quartz, and smoky quartz, are the most common stones used in metaphysical practices; however, this book covers a vast array of gemstones as they relate to the chakras and various emotions, thoughts, and situations, which also vibrate at different frequencies. Positive affirmations used with each stone can help replace negative thoughts and vibrations and assist in bringing about transformation and change.
You can buy gemstones at metaphysical or New Age book-stores around the country. Rocks can be found at old-fashioned rock shops or gem shows, and you can also mine them yourself. I have visited the quartz capital of the United States, the Ouachita (pronounced "wash-it-taw") mountain region in Arkansas, which is noted for its fine quality quartz crystal. It's fun to drive up to the mine site and find clear quartz points sparkling at you, embedded in the clay parking lot.
Gemstones are located in veins in mountains. A rock quarry or a mine site is a place that has been blasted out the side of a mountain to get to the treasures within. The portion open to the public is an area where the miners have dumped excess clay removed from the quarry with huge landmoving equipment to make room to get to more good rocks. I have spent many hours scrambling around big piles of red clay that are chock-full of crystals. It's so much fun to dig through the clay to get to the shiny crystals.
Of course, crystals and gems can he found all around the world. Mount Ida in Montgomery County, Arkansas, has been a center for extensive mining for over a hundred years. Other minerals found in the area are wavellite, veriscite, and sphalerite; also traces of gold, silver, and copper have been Found. Brazil is a great mining source of large deposits of quartz crystals. The largest crystal ever found was mined in Brazil. Some of the most beautiful gemstones I've ever seen have come from Minas Gerais, Brazil. Minas Gerais means "general mines" in Portuguese. Uraguay has the deepest, richest amethyst. There are also mines throughout France, Mexico, and other places in the world.
The price range of crystals is wide and varied. The most afford-able gemstones are tumbled stones, which are usually $1—$5 each. Most metaphysical or New Age stores have a section with bowls or containers filled with a rainbow of tumbled stones. The price of unique specimens and larger pieces of minerals depends on the quality, rarity, and size of the gemstone. There is always a stone for you at the right price. I recommend starting a collection of tumbled stones because you can easily accumulate a rainbow collection of stones at a good price to use as recommended within this book.
