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.

Delcies Desserts & Cakes

Delcies Desserts and Cakes comes to my mind each time I need a healthier option or purchase a vegan cake or cake suitable for diabetics. I came upon Delcies when I wanted to celebrate a birthday of my yoga friend who is a vegetarian from India – that was more than 5 years ago. Finding high and low and reading of many stores, I decided to place an order for a vegetarian cake for my yoga friend. The first cake I placed an order was Black Forest. My yoga friend enjoyed that cake very much…

And just very recently I purchased a diabetic friendly Mud Fudge cake for my birthday which was in January. Catering to the people who are health conscious and wants to care for their calories intake, this was sure a treat for them….

Below is an article on the various kinds of nuts and its benefits. There are also recipes too…Read and apply it to your daily diet…

Introducing IPF

My journey with IPF (International Pen Friends) did not begin very recently. I was a IPF member since my teens and used to exchange letters then. Of course, as years went by and life got busy, I lost contacts with the friends I wrote to in my teens. Now, I am back again to IPF and am getting quite a number of friends.

If you are keen and patient enough and disciplined to write and wait for letters, you can consider IPF. Virpi, the representative I contacted is very fast and very helpful too!
