The Power of Crystals aka Power Stones by Rei

The Power of Crystals, aka Power Stones

By Rei

Crystals, aka power stones, hold a special place for me. I love them and have them around me all the time. 

My spiritual journey all began from there. I used to not believe in crystal healings. Thinking that some wealthy people didn’t know what to do with their money. I was desperate for my marriage. By this time, we already tried both, couples’ and individual counseling and personal development classes. One day, crystal ad popped up while I was browsing the web. So I thought, if the stones can make the situation better, I will give a try.

I signed up for a class you could call “Crystal Stones 101” at House of Intuition, in Silverlake, CA. Well, it was very unlike for me to sign up for something before I got more information. It was a crystal bowl meditation class. Meditation was not in my life at that time. I am thankful that I did not read carefully the description of the class. I wouldn’t sign up if I had read through the class description. However, having already paid for the class, I decided to take it.


“I experienced intense energies like energy detox.”


I followed the instructions, closed my eyes, and relaxed. As the class goes by, I started to see wheels of colors before the instructor mentioned each color I opened my eyes to look for the tricks that they have in the room and nothing! I continued to experience the colors until the end of class. After, I realized that I felt refreshed. I learned what I saw in the class were Chakras. When you just experienced something out of the blue, you know it is real. Soon after, I signed up for the Reiki circle. Though I am Japanese, I didn’t exactly know what Reiki was. Here again, I experienced intense energies like energy detox. I was drawn to this, and it led me to become a Reiki Practitioner. 


Each Power Stone has Different Energy and Meaning”


Each power stone has different energy and meaning. The stones absorb negative energy from the outer force and protect, or balance you. It also can set an intention. Power stones don’t need to be an expensive piece; they are affordable, and you need to find the one that matches best with you.

Since crystals absorb energies, they need to be cleansed. Each stone has a different way to cleanse, such as Moonlight, Sunlight, Sea Salt Water, Sage, Reiki, etc. I use stones for Reiki sessions. I find that they help to balance the energies.

Some crystals don’t work well together. Once, through a remote session of Bodytalk, the stones in the client’s room needed to be balanced. Of course, I didn’t know anything about her stones in her bedroom. It was affecting her energy. Some of my friends connect with each stone on a much deeper level. 

In the end, stones didn’t save my marriage, but it led me to where I am. A spiritual path is giving me a deeper meaning of life. Everything happens for a reason.

The Healing Power of a Bracelet By Marquesa Lola

The Healing Power of a Bracelet

By Marquesa Lola

Hello, this is Marquesa Lola. You don’t know yet, but I love bracelets, big or small. Especially those, which hold some type of deep meaning to me or represent a priceless memento. I wear them on both my arms, a few inches thick, looking a bit cluttered on my wrists. But, hey! I like them that way. And there, among all the bracelets, buried, conspicuous, unspoken for, there is a very small and special bracelet. Oh the healing power of this bracelet!

It is a bracelet I bought by pure chance at a local coffee place. It is not the best looking of my bracelets and hardly anyone ever noticed it on my wrist. However, It sits there heavy and at times it weighs a ton or two, making my heart feel heavy. My bracelet is always present in my mind. Every morning I rub it as if it were Aladdin’s Lamp  wishing  for freedom, my emotional freedom.


“Every morning I rub it as if it were Aladdin’s Lamp  wishing  for freedom, my emotional freedom.”


If I had to describe my special healing bracelet, I would say its leather straps hold what looks like a silver time capsule that holds a rolled parchment inside. I would have never noticed the fact that the parchment was inside the silvery cylinder, as I am not very observant, but this time I did. When I unscrewed it and opened it, the parchment popped out. I unrolled the parchment, and immediately I understood it was going to have an important role in my life. The paper had been designed for the purpose of healing me and that was the reason why it was there. 

Its purpose was to remind me of something critical. I was at a very low point in my life. So it seemed logical to me, I would use that parchment to write an SOS message to the inner me. This is what I wrote, “This bracelet will witness my recovery and it will only be opened at that moment, and the parchment will be burned in a special witchcraft type of ceremony, sprinkled with Champagne .” This will only happen the day I heal from the emotional abuse received throughout my life by the one person I trusted my life with,  the father of my child, my life partner. 


“It had been designed for the purpose of healing me.”


The day I will heal from the emotional abuse that led to self-doubt, self-judgment, and emotional deflation is not that far. I am beginning to feel moments of clarity which I had not had for the last two years. Some of the clarity, I won’t lie, I attribute to therapy, yoga, meditation, and walk with friends. But mostly to the fact that I am beginning to detach from the codependency that I suffered for decades towards this very toxic person. 

The note I wrote inside, has been on my wrist, locked for two years, hanging from my arms, amongst hundreds of other pretty bracelets. But, this inexpensive, subtle, plain bracelet is the only one that is a testimony of a promise I made to myself. I vowed to never remove it from my wrist until the day I will be totally healed. The bracelet remains on my wrist still today. One day, I promise, it will no longer be there.

I keep telling myself, “it is a matter of time.”
