Mandala Drawn by a PostCrosser

I attach a mandala drawn by a PostCrosser from Russia, Svetlana. She drew it on the postcard she sent over. Very lovely and calming!!!

It is these kind of little things in life that makes you feel very special and loved by people whom you do not know. Thank you to PostCrossing Project that made this possible. Of course, a big thank you to Svetlana too! 🙂

Gemstone, Crystals and Minerals – Part 3

Continuation from part 2….

Now coming to crystal water. I drink water daily treated via crystals and it is called VitaJuwel. I have several collection of the bottles and also the vials. Even my pet cats are drinking the gemstone water, for their health and wellbeing.

Gemstone water is not new to the market. Since ancient days, gemstones have been used to purify water.

I purchase these items in Singapore. All information can be found in the below links (scroll after the pictures for the list of links).

I share this as personally myself, my family, my friends and pet cats are benefiting from it. Simple changes to daily routine in our life will make it more healthy and worthwhile. Why not consider switching to gemstone water instead?

You can “taste” the difference of water of each blend and also can feel the difference. Putting crystal stones directly into water for drinking purpose is not healthy as we will not be sure of the impurities present. But using VitaJuwel bottles and vials is definitely a better choice as the crystals are packed nicely in glass.

Gemstone, Crystals and Minerals – Part 2

Continuation from Part 1

Today, I will cover the various ways gemstones, crystals and minerals plays an important part in my daily life.

Around my working desk, my bedroom, shower room and my home, there are crystal stones present all over the place. I understand the energies present in each stone and cater to the area.

Naturally, each crystal stone has its own attributes and properties. But at the same time, not all stones attracts one. Each of us will tend to like one crystal stone to the other. So, it differs by person. Below are some stones present in my residence area.

For various properties of crystals, below is one weblink. You can also find numerous articles and links on crystals available in the web. For some crystals that I currently have, I have purchased it from Crystal Vaults. For some, from other direct suppliers in USA or China.

I not only place various crystals around my home for good, positive, healing energy. I also consume water of various crystals. Before you think I will soak raw, direct crystals into my drinking water, no, I don’t do that. There are glass bottles available in the market – I will cover that next week, Monday in Part 3.

Gemstone, Crystals and Minerals – Part 1

As I am in the holistic and healing line, elements such as water, minerals, crystals and gemstones forms a very important part of the healing process I use on my students and clients.

But using of crystals and other stones is not new. It has existed since ancient days. No one can deny the importance of crystals and gemstones in Ancient Egyptian times. Many tombs discovered consists of the priceless crystals and gemstones such as lapis lazuli, malachite, turquoise and more. One famous tomb found full of treasures and mysteries is that of King Tutankhamun’s.

You can read more of the treasures found there in the below link:

Other than Ancient Egyptians, many other Ancient Civilizations  and / or cultures have used crystals and minerals in their daily life activities and for other purposes. Many articles exists online of this.

But I have found two below. You can always search the web for more articles or books to know more.

Reminder Bands from "The Mindful Company"

As a teacher, I do need a daily boost and reminders, isn’t it? 🙂

I found “The Mindful Company” which sells reminder bands. And of course, I was hooked onto some of its items and purchased them. They arrived 2 days ago and I just had time to take a closer look and take pictures…..Below are the pictures I have taken. Excuse the poor lighting as it was taken very early morning and I was struggling with the phone and lighting etc…
I purchased, “Gratitude”, “Trust” and “Breathe” – these 3 words plays a very important role in my life, each with a different purpose. Nevertheless, all of us need to be grateful on a daily basis, and to have trust on ourselves and in the Universe and remember that our breaths alters our emotions and feelings. We have all that we need and at times we forget in the midst of daily life happenings and events.
For more information and professional looking pictures of the items here are the links. Delivery within Singapore is free and they deliver to other countries too. All details can be found in their website. Packaging is great too. You can gift it to someone too….
For the pictures of my purchased items and how it looks on my wrist, here it is! It is easy to alter as my wrist is relatively small in size (though in the picture it can look big! 🙂 ). I am still “learning” how to toggle for the “Breathe” band braid. I am sure that I will get it eventually…. 🙂
