Cool rock projects

Rock projects.

People love rocks.  Whether they are pretty rocks like crystals and gem stones, or whether they are plain old garden variety rocks like large basalt pieces or possibly even basalt that has been crushed into gravel.

Stone has been a landscaper’s best friend on many occasions.  Used to fill wet areas that need a drain field, to other areas that just need to be filled in or made a little more attractive.  There are varieties of red rock and river rock, even white marble chunks for use in lawn and  garden decorating.  These types of rock are an excellent choice for pond scaping and decorating fountain areas.
rock-project

Here a certain type and variety of sizes of common rock were used to make a sentimental picture of people on a ledge.  The closeness shared draws emotion in from every angle.  The carefully placed trail of rocks under neath the ledge of wood displays even more variety and interest in both color, shape and size.

Rocks or stones of all kinds add a grounding influence and good energy to the world around them.  No matter how they are used, they each enhance their direct area to raise the vibration nearby.

Be the Light…

 

Be the Light…

Shine brightly today!

light

Be the light you would like to see in others…

Shine – shine – shine…

Be all that you can be – right now.
Think about good things,
do good things,
and have a joyful, happy life –
Full of light!

Let yesterday’s troubles fade away,
and let them stay in your past,
as you realize what a wonderful life you have
right now, TODAY.  Be grateful for everything you have, and even the things that don’t seem to be a blessing.  Later in life, you may change your mind and realize how much you learned from some of those challenges.  Lessons learned can save you so much time and effort in the future.  You’ve probably heard it said more than once -Yes, I’ve all ready learned that one… I don’t need to go through that again…

And then you can move on.  Knowing that you have gained some wisdom and knowledge and you are a little smarter than you were before.

Life is about lessons.  Life is about learning, and loving, and caring.  Life is about sharing and shining as bright as you can.

Keep shining my friends… Do what you like to do.  Be who you want to be.  Love as many people as you can, and just let the rest of the world be who and what they want to be also.

Don’t worry about what others do or say, because you are so busy living your own life that you know there is plenty of room for everyone else to be themselves.  You may not want to live really close to people that don’t share your love for life and humanity though…

It’s real that some people don’t agree and sometimes there are those who don’t appreciate their lives at all.  BUT it’s up to you to just keep on shining anyway!

I Love your light.

Be Blessed…

Sometimes you have to consciously STOP what you are thinking –

Blessed...

and START thinking about something else.

What does that mean exactly?

It is so easy to think about something that has happened to us.  Maybe someone said something offensive, or accidently  slighted us in some way.

Maybe they were just voicing their opinion a little too loudly for our taste, or maybe we just totally dis – agree with what they had to say.  Not everyone is on an equal level of consciousness, you know.

There are those who have never even heard of consciousness, let alone practice it in any way.

So here we are repeating over and over – something we don’t like.  Negative feelings overpowering all of the other feelings, leaving us sad, and angry.  Wronged somehow, and just plain stressed out.

If we continue to stay in that negative, unloving state, however, we will soon forget about all of our blessings because we will become consumed by whatever it is that we are all stressed out about.

Whatever you think about expands.

Pretty soon you could have a full blown, made up story about this or that negative situation, and left unresolved, this creative story could cause a headache, or stomach problems like indigestion or nausea.

How many times have you “imagined” a situation that never actually happened?

We are very creative thinkers.

Imagination can get carried away though, and that is why we have to harness our thoughts and bring them back to remembering positive things like how Blessed We Are!

Try writing a list of five blessings right now.  You may have to start with the clothes you are wearing.

And maybe a cup of coffee?

Or a bottle of water?

Good energy?

Do you have shoes?  Some people don’t, so I count my shoes a blessing.

When you start listing your blessings, you bring yourself into a  positive state of thinking.  Pretty soon everything looks a little brighter, and your list of five can turn into a list of  twenty five within just a few minutes.  The more you think, or dwell on blessings, the more blessings you find to think about.

This, like everything else, may take a little practice, but it is well worth the benefits gained, to practice this everyday until it becomes second nature.  Wouldn’t you really rather feel “Blessed” than “Stressed” ?

Love…

Love…

Tune in to your highest and best by practicing the feelings and emotions of love.  

 

“I now fully allow myself to give

and receive love because love  is

who I am.  I am loved, loving

and entirely loveable.”

You can start by thinking of something that you love the most.  Maybe it is your pet dog or cat.  Maybe it is your goldfish or iguana.

Maybe it is your Mother, or sister or some other family member.   Just start some where and feel the happiness of love.  Let the warmth of loving feelings sweep over you as you think of precious memories, or hold your pet, stroking it gently.  Dive in to your favorite memory and re-visit it fully and completely, remembering every detail as you find the vibration of love over taking any other less fulfilling thoughts and feelings.

Then think of a time when you felt totally and completely loved by some one else.

No matter who it is, or was, just immerse yourself into that thought or memory and sit with it for a few moments. Enjoying the warmth of that moment in time where you were just feeling pure love and nothing else.

Let a smile come to your face as you sink deeper into your loving memory.  Allow the feelings to spread from your smiling face down your neck until it reaches and  envelopes your heart.  Feel it fill your heart with love and joy, peace and harmony.

Take a deep breath and just relax, knowing that the love you feel is a very real and powerful force.  Take another deep breath and know that you are love.

 

love

Keep practicing the vibration of love and allowing love to flow in and out of your life until it becomes a common  emotion.

Welcome it into your life every day and keep it as your focal point as much as possible.  The more you practice something the easier it becomes in your every day routine and the more you let love flow in and out of your life, the happier and more fulfilled you will be.  Increase your energy and raise your vibration with more LOVE.

You love, are loving, kind, and you are lovable!

What do people think of you?

What do people think of you?

Do you realize how important you are to many people?  They may never say anything to you or about how much you mean to them, or you may never know how important they think you are.  How well you do your job, or how articulate you speak.  But that doesn’t mean that you are not sincerely appreciated by many.

So many people don’t want to give themselves away with emotional feelings so they just keep their feelings and emotions to themselves.  It feels safer that way.  It is often – only when someone passes away that the family and friends gather around to finally acknowledge and honor the person for all the good they have done in their life.

How sad to keep positive words and acknowledgements from those who deserve them.  Those who daily shed their light and love through their words and deeds alike.  Those who add purpose to their lives by encouraging others.

 

Your Light is seen, your heart is known, your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine. If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be shocked.  You are far more wonderful than you think you are.  Rest with that.
Your light

So if you are not feeling appreciated right now, remember that there are numerous people who love and cherish you every day.  Just because they don’t or aren’t able to express their love the way you would like to have it expressed, doesn’t mean that they don’t love you.  It just means that they are not saying it or showing it for some reason of their own.  Don’t let it  hinder you or make you feel any less.  Just go on sharing your light no matter what anyone else thinks or says about you.  Be your own light and love yourself so much that it just doesn’t matter what any one else thinks or says about you.

SHINE ON…

ANYWAY !

*JUST BE YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT *

SHINING BRIGHT

Enjoying your life today and every day.  Setting an example for yourself and those around you because you believe in yourself enough to live the life you desire and know you deserve.  No one else can live your life.  No one else can do the things you can do just the way you do them.  You are one of a kind.  You are unique and special.

Be sure to appreciate others too.  Learn from others and be sure to show the people you love that they are special to you.  You never know when it might be to late to say the things you held on to for far to long.

Life is short.  Live it to the fullest every day.

Embrace your good energy and keep your vibration at the highest level you can.  Keep practicing good energy and positive living until it becomes easy and effortless, raising your vibration until joy is your natural state.  It can and should be done while you still have time.

If you need help raising your energy level, level of vibration, wealth, or to become more balanced and happy, contact us at “Energy Healing Stone Therapy” for more information, or join our mailing list for ongoing, upcoming events and classes.

Live life to the fullest – Every day, and be compassionate to everyone, including yourself!
Be happy,
and keep doing the things that make you happy!

Leave the past in the past and enjoy the day you have right now!

I love rocks

I love rocks

Are you a rock hound, rock hunter, rock appreciator? Or do you just plain out LOVE rocks like I love rocksdo?  I never get too many, and I am always looking for a new project to use the rocks I have in. Projects where I can use some of my buckets of beautiful rocks,  back packs full of rocks, and pockets full of rocks.  Not all of them are like the ones pictured here either.  Some are big, beautiful sparkling crystals.  Amethyst and quartz crystals, pieces of jasper and agates, various chunks of petrified wood and lots of shiny black obsidian.  Some are expensive, some are cheap, and some have been gifted to me because everybody I know, knows that I love rocks.  I even had a friend give me a plastic baggy of  small grey crushed rock (gravel from her driveway) as a joke, because she knew how crazy I am about rocks.  I put them in my gravel driveway with the rest of my crushed basalt base.

Every one seems to have their favorite kind of rock or stone.  Many people like pretty crystals of some sort.  I think it is because they are clear and shiny, emitting good pure energy.  Some of the other rocks like jasper and jade are used and kept more for grounding and keeping a person balanced, while the energy emitted from crystals like amethyst are more light and uplifting.  Who doesn’t need a little more light, uplifting good energy? And who doesn’t need a few more pretty rocks?

rocks,agates,jasper

While I prefer to enhance my energy with crystals and other types of rocks, other things that can help raise your energy or vibration are:

  • Sunshine
  • Going outside
  • A nature walkWalking is good exercise.  Walking in nature is especially good for raising your vibration and lifting your spirits.  Take a look around and enjoy the trees, grass, and ferns along the path you take.  Maybe even the blue sky shining through the trees is enough to help you feel better.  Enjoy your time outside and don’t forget to take deep breaths as you slowly pace yourself.
  • Holding your pet  If you have a pet, spending time with it will give you satisfaction and a great feeling of love, curing the blues or at least helping you feel  better for the time being.
  • Watching a funny movie
    Movies are a great way to distract yourself from a bad mood or a short bout of depression. Movies have a way of giving us a new perspective on life through the realistic lessons the actors go through. 
  • Reading a good book
    There are so many good books to read these days.  Whether it be a Kindle, or the old fashioned kind, there are a lot of funny, uplifting, or informative books at your disposal.  Even art books are a good way to spend some time and refresh your mood. 
  • Calling a friend
  • Taking your dog for a walk
  • A nice warm bath

    Take  a little time to soak in the tub.  Maybe you could add some epsom salts and essential oils to sooth your tired muscles  and elevate your senses. Along with the hot water and pulsing jets.

  • Listening to uplifting music
  • Using a tuning fork
