Elven World: Return of The Tuatha de Danann

Celtic Mythology, Earth Guardians

Energetically cleaning/clearing your crystals is an important part of being a crystal care taker. Cleansing/clearing practices are as varied as the crystals themselves.

My all time personal favorite is to cleanse my crystals by the full moon's light. For me, as a Cancer (moon child and water element), this particular practice resonates deeply. Upon further reflection, I simply understood this process to work for me. I never questioned it. And as with all things, there came a point where I wanted to know more. Why is it a full moon, and not a new moon? What energies does the moon carry as it moves through the various stages?  

And so my "Moon Quest" began. Let me share what I have learned. There are Four main moon cycles: New, Waxing, Full, and Waning. Let's start with the four main moon cycles.

NEW MOON- The New Moon is when the moon is lined up with the Sun, but out of our view from Earth, making it appear dark. Many believe that the energy of the New Moon is a time of transformation, new beginnings, an explosion of creative energy and personal growth. Many belief systems see the new moon as a wonderful time to perform rituals of blessing and healing.

WAXING MOON- The Waxing moon is simply when the moon appears to be gaining light and growing in energy. The energy of the waxing moon is that of manifestation and intention. This is a time to focus on new projects and ideas. What a great time to build a crystal grid dedicated to success, prosperity and growth.

FULL MOON- Lunar energy is at its most powerful during the time of the full moon. The reason we clean our crystals by the full moon is because this extremely powerful lunar energy helps to remove all dense, stored up energies, washing the crystal clean (like the tides cleanse the beaches) and re-energizing it. It is a time of enhancing personal and crystalline energies. Many perform rituals of protection at this time.

WANING MOON- The Waning moon is directly after the light of the full moon has passed that the light begins to grow less visible each night. The energy of the Waning Moon can be used to remove those energies and issues that no longer serve you such as letting go of a relationship that may be toxic. It is also leading up to the new moon which can be a time of rest and energy restoration.

You can choose specific crystals to enhance your lunar cycle experience. For instance, during a New Moon, work with the crystal energies that can assist in the area of transformation such as Garnet, Petalite, Sapphire, or Lithium in Quartz. Utilize a crystal such as Labradorite to help you transition into a new project or event. It would also be a great time to work with the creative energies of Carnelian, Charoite, Peridot, or Phenakite. Create a grid one day before the new moon and allow it to remain for until at least one day (and up to two days) after the new moon.

The Waxing Moon would be a great time to wear your chosen crystal for abundance and prosperity, since this is the lunar energy that is present during this time. Crystals such as Green Aventurine, Malachite, Citrine and Ruby are excellent Abundance crystals.

The Full Moon is a time of cleansing. Not only a great time to put your crystals out, but a perfect time to smudge your sacred spaces. Place some crystals for protection around your home or healing space such as Black Tourmaline or Black Obsidian. Don't forget to take the time to energize yourself! Place some tumbled Amber or Rose Quartz into a nice warm bath and enjoy its soothing energies. It would be a perfect time to adorn yourself with your favorite Tourmalinated Quartz or Ruby crystal pendant or other jewelry.

The Waning Moon is a beautiful reminder to rest, recoup, recharge. Crystals that carry an energy of unconditional love are perfect during this time as they are a reminder that taking care of the self is as important as anything else that you do. For if the self is not healthy and whole, you truly cannot be of complete service to others. This is a wonderful time to carry crystals such as Rhodochrosite, Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Ruby in Fuchsite, Pink Kunzite and/or Danburite. The Earth and its rotating moon hold many amazing energies. Tune in and enjoy! With love and crystal blessings, Kristi Huggins.

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.

Atheistic Ietsists

This is a group for us oddballs who...are Atheists...but who are 'spiritual' and deal in 'woo'...yet, we're not quite pagans either.The 'Atheistic Ietsist' label is one I came up with because ...well, it's simply the best that describes me and perhaps you're one too.This is not a group for Naturalistic Pagans - or Atheopagans that identify as such.  It is for those of us who are 'without gods/goddesses' [Atheist], but who deal in spirituality and have had spiritual experiences.Welcome to the…See More
