2015 Feng Shui Crystals & Charms

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Welcome to the lunar year of the Wood Sheep! :)

The Chinese New Year brings out much excitement for me. I love that we get to celebrate with family over sumptuous meals (and tikoy on the side), the kids get nice presents and some angpao money for them to save. As for me....ah, 'tis the season to update and refresh my crystals..woohoo!!

I consider it a special "mommy treat" whenever my hubby and I go to Binondo to have our bracelets made, then get to savor Chinatown with a meal in Wai Ying :) Mababaw lang ang kaligayan? Yes! siomai, congee and hot salad roll, oks na oks na!! Hahaha :) 

They say that these crystals that come from the earth possess their own energy / auric field that can promote healing for certain afflictions. At the same time, some can ward off negativity both from external and internal sources. Here are some examples I learned through the years: Muscovite can help people who are suffering from diabetes, Jade is good for circulation, Lapis Lazuli is good for a student's concentration, Black Tourmaline can block psychic attacks..and so on. 

When merged with Feng Shui practice, some stones or crystals can help activate say, wealth luck (this is usually done on a good year) or help deflect negative aspects or some bad flying stars from manifesting. A popular example would be the Citrine stone, usually worn by businessmen or salespeople to help improve and focus their thinking, assist in their work and as a consequence, hopefully will increase their sales.

I'm sharing a picture of my 2015 bracelet. The crystal gemstone arrangement was recommended to me by Mr. Johnson Chua of Feng Shui Sunrise based on my personal Paht Chee / Bazi chart. Based on the forecast for the year and missing elements in my chart, this is what he suggested. I researched online on each stone's particular meaning and they look promising. I emphasized in bold fonts the virtues and characteristics that I consider as important.

SNOWFLAKES OBSIDIAN - [This is the big stone in the foreground, carved in the shape of a conch shell with an inggot. On their own, the conch shell and inggot also symbolize auspicious things in Feng Shui.]  
♥ Balance during changes ♥ Purification ♥ Transformation ♥ Fulfillment ♥ Metamorphoses ♥ Manifestation ♥ Practicality ♥ Psychic ability
"In addition to the generic healing properties of Obsidian, Snowflake Obsidian is calming and soothing.  It teaches you to value mistakes as well as successes.  A stone of purity, Snowflake Obsidian provides balance for body, mind and spirit.  It helps you recognise and release “wrong thinking” and stressful mental patterns.  Promotes dispassion and inner centring.  Snowflake Obsidian empowers isolation and loneliness, aiding surrender in meditation.
Snowflake Obsidian aids in disorders of the veins and the skeletal structure.  It improves circulation and alleviates muscular aches and spasms.  Treats joint pain (arthritis) and hardening of the arteries." (Source: http://www.charmsoflight.com
SANDSTONE -  ♥ Creativity ♥ Solidarity ♥ Truth ♥ Understanding 
"Sandstone is a stone of creativity.  It helps to build and strengthen the cohesiveness and solidarity within relationships.  Encourages truth and promotes clarity in thought and sight.  Sandstone balances one’s reality and facilitates ease of movement and change.  It dispels abrasiveness of character and promotes loving acceptance of humanity.  Discourages bad tempers and general grouchiness. Sandstone treats wounds and broken bones.  It improves water retention and assists in the restoration of degenerative eyesight, weak fingernails and thinning hair."

APATITE ♥ Intellect ♥ Focus ♥ Learning ♥ Clarity of concentration ♥ Acceptance ♥ Unconditional Love ♥ Stimulates thoughts & ideas ♥ Communication ♥ Intellectual pursuits ♥ Peace and harmony ♥ Fights viruses
"Apatite is a stone of manifestation.  It is related to service and to humanitarian pursuits.  Apatite is attuned to the future, yet connects to past lives.  It stimulates the development of our psychic gifts and spiritual attunement, deepening meditation and aiding communication and self-expression on all levels.  It balances the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, and the chakras, eliminating overactivity and stimulating underactivity. 
Psychologically, Apatite increases motivation.  It draws off negativity about oneself and others.  It is helpful for hyperactivity and autism in children.  Apatite enhances creativity and the intellect.  It clears confusion and frustration, reducing irritability and awakening the inner self.  Apatite expands knowledge and truth and eases sorrow, apathy, and anger.
Physically, Apatite aids in the absorption of calcium, helping cartilage, bones and teeth; healing bones and encouraging the formation of new cells.  It improves arthritis and joint problems.  Apatite can successfully help in suppressing hunger and raising the metabolic rate, encouraging healthy eating.  It heals the glands, meridians, organs and overcomes hypertension."

My personal 2015 feng shui crystals and charms from Feng Shui Sunrise

I don't know why, but I feel a particular affinity towards these stones and crystals in general. They are attractive to look at and supposedly helps promote healing and clearing of energy blockages. If nothing, I find that having a pretty go-to arm candy or accessory helps save time each day and spruces up an otherwise drab wardrobe. Something different, right? They also serve as a nice reminder of the virtues we should aspire for and engender, in order for us to reach our goals...and in effect, bringing about the so-called "luck".

Of course I cannot guarantee the truth to all those claims. For all we know, it could be true or might be just a subject of fancy folk lore passed through the ages. We must remember that in order for us to manifest the good things in life we must work for it, do good and lift up everything to God.

I pray we all have a great year ahead, dear readers! Wishing you all a prosperous and happy new year! :)
