Himalayan Salt lamps, Hype or Help

Himalayan Salt lamps, Hype or Help

(Original publication date unavailable)

 

Ok,
HSL’s (Himalayan Salt Lamps) have experienced a huge boom in the last 2 years, everyone wants one, has one, needs another.
In my personal experience, These things are a HUGE help.
You don’t know what you’re missing if you’ve never slept or sat by a Himalayan salt lamp. It’s like having an open window – a softly glowing natural source of fresh, clean air – on your desk, in your living room, next to the bed, or anywhere you decide to put it.
 
How does it work?
The warmth of the candle or light bulb reacts with the natural crystal salt, releasing negative ions into the air.
Nifty factoid:
Looking at the light also boosts your serotonin ( thought to be a contributor to feelings of well-being and happiness) level making it easier to sleep, concentrate, and meditate.
On a strictly energetic level, Himalayan Salt Lamps are a great cleaner.
They cleanse & purify the environment around them.
And it is still salt, It is awesome for keeping negative stuff out of your space.
“It’s just a big chunk of salt with a light bulb inside, I’m skeptical on all of these health benefits that I see advertised?” you might say…….
No worries, I was too.
And yes and no, it IS a big ol’ chunk o salt…..but its also a little more complicated than a big block of salt with a bulb inside.
Himalayan salt lamps purify air through the power of hygroscopy ((of a substance tending to absorb moisture from the air, relating to humidity or its measurement.) , meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment and then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal.
As the  Himalayan Salt Lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb or candle inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt.
Nifty, Hunh?
 
What are the benefits?
Here are a few of the benefits (just punch Himalayan Salt  into google and you can read a ton of articles on the lamps, the salt, the shot glasses, the cutting boards, etc):
  • Increased energy levels
  • Better sleep
  • Improved depression
  • Reduced stress
  • Salt Lamps Cleanse & Deodorize the Air
  • Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation
  • Treat Seasonal Effective Disorder
  • Reduced allergy or asthma symptoms
  • Plus they are super pretty!!!!!!!
 
How big of a lamp do I need for my home?
The equation is roughly 1 pound of Himalayan Salt for every 2 square feet of an environment.
Below are some of the more popular sizes of Himalayan Salt Lamps and the area that they cover:

 

5-7 lbs. salt lamp — 10×10 sq. feet (small bedroom)

9-11 lbs. salt lamp — 12×12 sq. feet (large bedroom)

12-15 lbs. salt lamp — 14×14 sq. feet (living room)

40-50 lbs. salt lamp — 30×30 sq. feet (joined rooms & commercial spaces)
How can I tell if I have a fake on my hands?
(yup, just like everything else in the world people have stooped to faking salt lamps, the sadness in this is epic)
Here are a few signs to watch for:
*Its very light colored and is stupidly cheap
 White Himalayan salt is harder to come by than the usual pink that you see everywhere. Genuine white Himalayan salt lamps tend to cost several times as much as regular ones.
White Himalayan salt lamps are the preferred variety for detoxification and healing by some schools of energy healers. For everyone else, the Pink variety is gonna be awesome
*Its very heavy but lights up the entire room.
When a Himalayan salt lamp exceeds roughly 20 pounds, it is not going to give off light in a uniform pattern That’s just the nature of the creature.
So, If you have a large  Himalayan Salt Lamp that lights up your entire bedroom without any striations, a pretty & effective lamp for sure, but not an actual Himalayan Salt Lamp.
*It doesn’t break or crumble, no matter what
Himalayan salt lamps tend to be fragile. And are very poorly affected by moisture and humidity (they start sweating and condensating, then you have moist salt dust-its gross).
So if you’ve dropped yours, put it in a steamy bathroom, or the shipping box has arrived rather roughed over. But the lamp looks good as new, its a quality piece of merchandise, but it’s not a Himalayan Salt Lamp.
*The Lamp Handles Moisture Well
Genuine Himalayan salt manufacturers recommend that their products be placed in a cool, dry area. That’s because the salt will absorb any moisture around it and begin to shrink.  You can test your lamp by taking a damp cloth and gently rubbing the lamp. The part of the cloth you’ve rubbed should have noticeable discoloration and the lamp should look like it’s “weeping.”
*You don’t experience any changes
All of your life’s problems are not going to be solved by a Himalayan salt lamp.
(But it would be super nice right lols!!)
But after a couple weeks of using one in your home, you should notice a few differences. One of them being a more content feeling, the other a noticeably better nights sleep.
Should I get one?
I don’t know, that’s up to you.
Personally, I have one in almost every room of my house, no bathrooms (Because I want mine to have a nice long life )due to the humidity(Its still hardened salt after all), and the effects are very noticeable.
I am more at peace, I sleep better, I have fewer allergy symptoms, I find meditation easier, I am more focused, I concentrate easier ( And that is saying sumthin with a 13-month-old lol).
I will warn that if you have a bunch of them all lite up, some people have related stories of the lamps having a drying effect. I haven’t experienced this but, I got one for my Mom and she said her eyes dried out.
*Side note:
As I type this up, I am sitting in my shop with 8 of them on. And IT IS GREAT!!!!!!!!

Gemstone Therapy: Grounders

Gemstone Therapy: Grounders
(Original publication date unavailable)
What is Gemstone therapy?
It is using the innate energy of a particular gem, crystal, stone, mineral or set thereof to boost, catalyze, influence, initiate or prop up your own energies. Example: you’re having a horrid day and your feeling really down in the dumps. So you go over to your mega positive friend’s house and hang out with them for awhile. Strangely, you feel a lot better. You leave and the uplifted feeling stays with you. That, in a nutshell, is what crystals do.
What do crystals do?
A lot of different things! They can de-stress,  help jettison emotional baggage, keep you in a sunny state of mind, bring harmony to a home, help to facilitate honest communication,  etc
Today though, I am focusing on Grounders!
 
Definition:
Grounding: an energetic and mental state of being present, in your body and in the here & now.
That doesn’t sound so hard, right?
WRONG!!!!
In the day to day stresses and struggles we often forget to be IN the moment.
So worried about all that needs to be done, or all that should have been done.
We pile on oh so much worry and anxiety,
when we really need to realize- the past is over, the future is yet to be, and the present is all that we can truly effect.
Some side effects of not grounding:
Anxiety
Irritability
Excessive fatigue
Stress (& stress-related illnesses)
Daydreaming
Dizziness
Feeling checked out (if this happens a lot, its time to take up dance and meditation)
Forgetfulness
Light sensitivity
Noise sensitivity
Feeling drained, panicked, angry, overworked, overwhelmed, etc and the thoughts /mental state that goes with these emotions
Falling asleep during meditation
We make ourselves SICK (Mentally & physically) with worry, and so other than breathing or using sound therapy or yoga to find our calm stillness within, I give you CRYSTALS!!
Some Top notch Grounders:
Hematite-Grounding & stress relief
Amber-grounds you & reminds you of all of the blessings that you have.
Ruby-grounding, vitality
Garnet-strength,courage,grounding
Smokey quartz-grounding, organization, tunes you into the cosmic energy flow, removes negative energy
Red coral-motivation, ambition, relaxation, removes negative energy, optimism, and enthusiasm, abates depression & lethargy
Black onyx-grounding & protection from negative energy
Citrine– muzzles an overactive inner critic, keeps you centered in positivity, reflects outside negative energy
Tiger eye-grounding, protection from negative energies, concentration, energy
Obsidian-grounding & protection from negative energies
Black tourmaline-Grounding & empathic blocking
Sodalite-calming down a busy mind, quieting mental chatter, grounding the mind
Red Jasper- is a softer grounding crystal, a crystal of empowerment, it brings strength to resist emotional domination by others, also the courage to overcome domestic violence. *
*It will sustain those in the process of healing & recovering from a variety of violent Trauma & sexual experiences.
These crystals do MORE then what is listed, but these are the most relevant attributes that they convey concerning this particular article.
There are other crystals for different types of grounding, but Iv found these are  great starters.

Pendulums???

Pendulums???
(Original publication date unavailable)
So let’s get down to the ugly truth!!!!!
We are all a little lazy when it comes to maintenance, self-care, discipline, organization, etc.
So why would I be any different (Just cause I’m chasin enlightenment, doesn’t mean that I’m any less human),
When I recommend stuff,
it is going to be easy care, low maintenance, straight to the point, and budget-friendly (well as budget friendly as possible lol)
So in that vein, I give you the pendulum!
It’s AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can do all kinds of cool things with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dowse for lost stuff, find waterways, divine answers, you can use it as a tool to tap into the Akashic records (Compendium of all that is, was and will be), check your chakras, some even use it to communicate with spirits, etc.
In short, IT ROCKS!!!!!
And it’s super simple and user-friendly!
Fun facts:
There are a few different records, but we do know that it was used for divination at least as far back as the Han dynasty in China.
It isn’t until centuries later when the use of the pendulum as a divination tool can be found in Europe.
One of the earliest European uses of the pendulum was through Dowsing.
**Dowsing: *a way of searching for underground water, minerals, or anything invisible, by observing the motion of a pointer (traditionally a forked stick, now often a pair of bent wires) or the specific changes in direction of a pendulum, in response to unspecified unseen influences.**
Some of the earliest stories of pendulum use for divination comes through Italy and traveling gypsies. To escape persecution for possessing ‘tools of the devil’, early gypsies would wear their pendulums as necklaces.
Neat, Hunh????
Basic How to:
  1. Grab a string or thinner chain and put a weight on the end of it (Generally, I use crystals, but I’m really into shiny’s 😀). Make the weight with enough heft that the wind won’t catch it, but light enough that your not gonna get arm strain. Or just drop by the shop and buy one from me lols 😀
  2. Now, brace your elbow on a stable surface (this ends a lot of arm and hand shake, we all shake slightly- so no worries).
  3. Now, hold up your forearm with that elbow braced on a stable surface and suspend your pendulum from between your forefinger & thumb
  4. Still your pendulum as much as possible, then ask it POLITELY which way is yes
  5. Now ask your pendulum which way is no.
  6. Now ask it a few tester questions ( stuff you already know the answers to)
  7. Then phrase all of your questions in a yes or no vernacular, and your set!!!!
It is truly THAT easy!!!!
Make sure you have something to put it away in when you are done with it(pouch, box, etc)
Always say THANK YOU when you are done using it.
Always be respectful, it is a tool like any other divination instrument, and they all have personality- so don’t piss ’em off!!!!!
Cleanse your pendulum if it starts to feel off (uncomfortable feeling when you hold it, shakes a lot, gives no answers or is wrong A LOT!).
Basic cleaners apply here- Salt, selenite, sunlight (Depending on the material the pendulum is made out of, i.e. don’t put a fluorite or an amethyst pendulum in direct sunlight or you will have murky grey quartz)!
Ask your question a few times, but remember (just like with Tarot, Oracle, etc) if you just keep asking the same question over and over again…Your pendulum will either start screwing with you and give you some pretty ridiculous answers or it will quit talking to you altogether.
If you have ever had an Askhole friend (Askhole definition: Someone who constantly asks for your advice, but never takes it. Asks the same crap over and over again, and never listens.), eventually you just quit dealing with them because its a waste of your time.
That is exactly what happens with your pendulum! 
Don’t be the Askhole friend!!!
 
Chakra check method:
I put this in as an example of non-divination work that can be done with a pendulum, and also to help with energetic monitoring.
This is the method that works best for me, and the people that I help.
But by all means, feel free to find your own.
Hold your pendulum over each of your seven chakra centers.
I usually start at the Crown and work my way down from there. So Crown, Brow, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, Root.
(*Standing up is the easiest way to do this in my experience. Some people prefer to lay down, but they are a good deal more limber then I am.)
 
If the pendulum swings counterclockwise, your chakra is blocked.
If your pendulum swings clockwise, your chakra is in fine form.
If your pendulum stays still, you need to do some deep work on that chakra.
Want to know more?????
Want to go farther with your pendulum???

“Who Is On The End of My Psychic Hot Line?” Lecture

Hey Folks!
Past Life reader
Dr. Susan Kellogg is giving a talk that you are NOT gonna want to miss!!!!!!!!
She is speaking on tuning into your innate psychic senses before her Sessions as the shops featured reader on Saturday May 26th, at 12pm…She will speak for 45 minutes and cover the subjects mentioned below:
“Who Is On The End of My Psychic Hot Line?”
Everyone has an innate “psychic” sense. We are constantly sending and receiving thoughts and feelings. We can pick up daily impressions from our inner guidance (angels/guides) to help us make better decisions. Those hunches, still small voice messages, feelings and inner visions come to us throughout the day.  We can also be influenced by the thoughts or feelings of others, those in or out of the physical world.
To be really free and empowered, it is essential to know “who is on the other end of the line.”  We will explore the spiritual facts of different levels of spirit communication, and solutions to keep tuned in and tuned up to that higher source of inspiration.
 
Dr. Susan Kellogg — with 40+ years of service as a spiritual educator and consultant, trance-trained medium, and chakra healer .  Trained by mentor Dr. Francisco Coll, founder of the Americana Leadership College and current Wayshowers College, Dr. Kellogg has traveled internationally sharing practical tools and techniques to help a person “become their own best healer and psychic.”

Mr. Davis’s bio in his own words:
In 1973 I opened my heart and mind to accepting my precious gift as a ‘natural born psychic’, finally realizing that these abilities were given to me for a very important purpose. It was at that point I knew that helping others was such a crucial aspect of my own journey. As I traveled the country I was thrilled to see how many people I was able to provide with insight and guidance. My passion for my work continued to flourish and I saw how many lives I was able to improve with my guidance and highly accurate predictions. I’ve had many life altering experiences seeing people grow and even aiding the police throughout my career. Along the way I’ve been bestowed with several wonderful honors, including recognition as a Healer by the Universal Temple of Truth Foundation. I’ve also shared my abilities with others as a member of the Educational Society of Parapsychology.
 
Now I continue to work with private individuals, police departments, and private investigations, as well as with several businesses and professional associations. I regularly make appearances as a guest lecturer for business and professional groups, helping with growth, group unity, and motivation. I split my time between Phoenix and Chicago where I am frequently a featured psychic at several area psychic fairs.

Quick tips: Personal Energetic cleansing

Quick tips: Personal Energetic cleansing

(Original publication date unknown)

Energetic cleansing is so very important because every day, all day we are constantly hit with what other people are diffusing from their energetic state.
Now dont get me wrong, we all have funkified energy.
But this is about how to flush out other peoples garbage, that way you can deal with just your own.
Think of it like walking around and anybody, Within I’d say probably at least a ten-foot radius around you, has left a chalk handprint on you – all different colors because we’re all feeling different things throughout the day.

Some people are even strong enough that they can project their emotions over the phone, which is why people in phone jobs, come out of them looking so Haggard.

They seem like they’ve been through a war zone,
because they’re dealing with that all day every day, on top of all of that “wonderful for the soul” verbal abuse.

And no matter what, it weighs on you.

If you don’t flush that off at the end of the day it’s like going without a shower.
If you went for months without a shower, Not only would smell pretty bad, but you would start to have some physical repercussions- not to mention the emotional and psychological repercussions.
2 months, three months, 4 months, a year, 2 years…… pretty soon you’re getting to the point where you’re really not feeling well at all.
All of the other people’s negative emotions or positive emotions have collected on you, and you have no way to flush them off or at least you don’t know how to.
All of a sudden you start to get things like, mental anxiety disorders, depression, anger problems, etc.
Sometimes it will manifest as physical disorders.
Alot of this can be counter-acted by flushing out The unwanted alien or foreign energy,
hence this article & subsequent class that I will be teaching on this.

A few tips:
Dance-move your body,
When you are moving you are getting your endorphins flowing, which feels great.

But also, you are working ALL of that stuck/nasty energy out of your system. you are basically transmuting it by using it to fuel what you are doing.

Burning calories, burning away nasty energy from your system, and feeling awesome! Cool Hunh!! ( Try going to a good outdoor rave. The DJ has to be really good! you are dancing/transmuting as well as getting some of the best sound therapy. Bonus, with everyone else transmuting anything negative into positive energy, you are actually enshrouded in positive energy. Plus it is great for moving meditation.)

Salt baths-
Salt is amazing for clearing out junky, nasty energy. It is purity embodied.
Showers will blast alot of nasty energy off of you just by themselves.

Visualization-

1. Visualizing a bright white light surging through every nerve and fiber of your being (either from the sky through you to the ground, or from the earth through you to the sky. Depending on which method resonates with you.) and cleaning out anything that is stuck within you.

2. Visualizing opening your chakra centers and having a white light blasting through your chakra points and then closing them afterwards. (do this in the shower, it helps alot)

Iv also been told that Qi gong is wonderful for clearing yourself, but I cannot confirm this personally.

Some essential tools and why they help:

White selenite- Anybody dealing with the public needs at least 2 chunks of this!! Selenite (especially white) is THE energetic flush stone (See my article on Gemstone Therapy for the Why it works question).
And it is self-cleaning,so its super low maintenance.

Black kyanite- Chakra aligner and Auric field hole fixer. Used in conjunction with White Selenite it will break up any really stubbornly stuck energy.

Black tourmaline (2 chunks)- This is THE Empathic blocker stone, but it also has a tendency to absorb negative energies so if your in a particularly nasty environment , switch your stones midway through your day. Then clean them out with either early morning sunlight (between sunrise and around 11am, when the sunlight is at at its strongest) or a nice chunk of white selenite.

Himalayan salt lamp-Cleanses & purifies both the air & the energy that surrounds it. It also boosts your seratonin level, making you sleep better, concentrate more effectively, and feel happier.

Singing bowls- Sound therapy and vibratory resonance are wonderful things for breaking up nasty energetic crap.

Sage-It is wonderful for clearing nasty energy and a time honored tradition.
(Link to article How the F*** do I Sage??? is coming as soon as I can repost it, please check back)

Pendulum (for chakra checking)- A Pendulum is a seriously useful tool for making sure of where your energy levels are and how they are flowing. An easy way to do this, is to check your Chakra centers.
(Link to article on Pendulums??? (Link as soon as I can get the pendulum article back up)

Salt body scrub (St. Ives makes an awesome one,)-Again salt is amazing for clearing out junky, nasty energy. It is purity embodied. And this is way easier then rubbing yourself with seasalt! 😀

Shower- Running water will get rid of alot of negative energy. This is part of the reason why I shower at night, at the END of the day…and because Im a slow starter in the morning lol.
*You will find that if you are in a really bad mood, try taking a shower- you will feel SO much better. Add some happy music, singing and sea salt….I betcha find that you are in a FANTASTIC mood when you get out.

Water- Also drink alot of water, it will help keep you balanced and flush the over abundance of chemicals that are all around us out of you. Its sound funny, but when you are flushed and hydrated, you can better sense when you need to clear or shield your own energy.

Sharp obsidian blade (for energetic cord cutting)- Obsidian makes any nasty energy pack up and leave. and as per the previous article on Energetic cord cutting(link here), you want to make sure your not hooked up to anyone that you dont want to be.

There are other things that you can do of course, but these are some things that I have found really help out.

****But don’t just take my word for it , get out there and research it!****

Quick tips: Clearing your space

Quick tips: Clearing your space
(Original publication date unknown)

Nasty energy vibrates at a lower frequency than positive energy, Plain and simple!
Make your home inhospitable to nasty stuff.
Now mind you, this is NOT just more of the same “Picture a white light” crap.
You already know THAT (And besides, most people that I’ve met haven’t had much luck with it anyways)
You will hear a lot of Spiritual people say “Raise your vibration”,
I promise you that they are NOT just being hippy dippy.
When you raise your vibration, it makes the negative energy want to pack up and move somewhere homier.
You had NO idea that it was that scientific OR that simple, did you?????????????
Now, Nobody can be high vibe all the time, we’re ALL human.
But here are some ways that you can keep other peoples garbage outta your home or space.
BTW, Energetically clearing and Protecting your space is vital.
You’ve gotta have someplace to come home to, a Haven from the rest of the stresses and pressures that we get hit with all of the time.
If that space ain’t clear, All kinds of stuff goes buggy!

*Also,
one more thing that I’m gonna mention here,
And I will probably catch some flack for this.
Your space is ALSO affected by WHO you bring into it.
If you have a buddy full of drama who is always hangin at your pad,
that buddy’s energy is gonna hang out too.
So, if your doin everything right and you have a Mr. or Ms. Drama paying steady visits, here are 2 things to do.
1 Clear your place every time, right after they leave,
2 Fill your home SO fully with your energy that its a lot harder for someone else’s energy to take root.
Or you can just hang with them in a public place and flush afterward.

So, Here are some tools and some tips to cleanse & protect your home:
Tips:

Environmental factors-
Singing bowls-
easiest way to clean out a house, energetically speaking(No it will not clear the dust bunnies, sorry to get your hopes up…I know you did …just for,like, a second there.)
It would be nice but NOPE, go get your broom and dustpan for that) the sound that they emit breaks up negative, stale, unpleasant energy through vibration.

Water fountains- These act like energy purifiers and they reflect nasty stuff. (Also, if you are a spiritual free lancer like myself, these act like a shrine to a diety! Cool hunh, I thought so)

Plants- life means less room for negative crap to float around. Also they give off their own calming energy.

Happy music- Blast it loud

Dance- Nobody is Fred Astair- except for Fred Astair- just have fun!

Sing- Nobody is Frank Sinatra- except for Frank Sinatra- Again Just have fun!!!!

Crystals- their energy is almost always positive!

Incense & Essential oils- Use them! Diffuse them!!! Put them to work for you!!!!

Sunlight- OPEN YOUR DRAPES,
ON OCCASION OPEN YOUR WINDOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nothing brings a good mood like some sunshine!!!
And nothing kills ambient nasty energy like sunshine!!!!
Let alone the breeze, moving air is always good!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Keep your drapes/blinds/etc open for a few days while you’re at work, and I will bet you it feels a lot better in your home afterward)

Tools:
Crystals-
White Selenite- automatic energy flush, very rarely (if ever) needs cleansing itself.
Black tourmaline- negative energy blocker and absorber
(Quick note, with the Black Tourmaline & White Selenite, I recommend that you use them to grid your house, a link to a diagram will be coming as soon as I can get it finished 😀 )
Obsidian- reflects negative energy. Its a volcanic glass, so by its nature, nothing wants to get too snugly.
Himalayan salt lamps- cleans the air and the energy

Herbs-
Salt-purification personified!!
Sage-clearing and blessing herb, used since druidic times.
You thought I was gonna say the Native Americans, didn’t you!!!
Although,, the Celtic Druids DID throw a little oak moss in with their sage.

*Sage alternatives (if you dislike the smell of burning Sage, like I do. Or if you are allergic.)
Palo santo- Brazilian holy wood( much the same properties as Sage, but leaves a happy, joyful ambiance)
Pine
Cedar
Juniper
Yerba Santa
Mugwort (Black Sage)
Rosemary
Copal
Holly
Clove

Essential oils, resins & Incenses-
Frankinencense,
Myrrh,
Dragonsblood,
Pine,
Cedar,
Sandalwood,
Palo santo

There are a few other things that will help, but these are what I have found to be most helpful 😀
