Crystals & Stones for Psychic Protection
By Kat Michaels, CCT, ACM, www.katmichaels.net
Psychic protection should be a priority for everyone, especially for those who are empathic, psychic, or in service-based careers. Crystals and stones can be used to create a frequency to protect you psychically and to ward off harmful and discordant energy; to ground and balance your own energy; and to invite in beneficial energies of love, appreciation, gratitude, compassion, and whatever else you're looking to create in your life.
Medicine bags are great for this purpose, as they create an alchemical stone experience that addresses your particular needs. A medicine bag is a pouch of several stones carried with you to help with a particular objective. I suggest no more than three to five stones in a medicine bag. One stone from each list below would make an effective combination and would give you three stones to work with for psychic protection and beneficial energy. There are many other options available to accomplish these purposes; this is just a sampling of some well suited stones.
For your medicine bag, please look up the MOHS hardness of each stone--stones that are a 3 shouldn't be paired with stones that are a 7, for example, because the stones that are a 3 would be likely to crack or break. Cleanse your stones energetically with sage, sound, Selenite or another method before using them. Also make sure to program your stones with your particular objective by holding them in your dominant hand and then blowing into them while thinking of your goal. If you don't have a specific goal in mind, program your crystal or stone to assist you with anything that may be in your highest and best good.

Crystal Feng Shui for Your Office or Healing Arts Room
By Ashley Leavy
“Feng shui literally translated is ‘wind and water,’ the two most prevalent elements that shape our world. Feng shui can be used to shape the energy around you. It is about changing your life by assessing and maintaining your connection to the natural world.” -Sandra Kynes (author of Gemstone Feng Shui).
For this reason, crystals can be used according to the principles of Feng Shui in order to enhance positive energy and counteract negative energy in your space. Crystals and stones can be used to shift the energy in your healing arts space, and in turn, make positive changes in your life and business that will result in balance and harmony. Knowing how to utilize crystal energy to positively affect the flow of energy in your sacred business is the key to proper Crystal Feng Shui.
All spaces have nine distinct areas, and these correspond to the nine areas of the Bagua Map. According to the ancient Chinese Bagua Map, parts of your space directly connect to certain areas of your life. By placing stones in your business, office, or healing room according to the Bagua Map, you can change the energy of your space, and, in turn, of your life.
You can place stones in one area of your healing arts room or business according to the Bagua Map, or you can look at the entire business as a whole and place stones throughout the home accordingly. There are several ways to do this. You may choose stones according to their color, their known properties, or their elemental correspondences.

Once you’ve selected a few stones, place them in the corresponding areas of your space according to the Bagua Map to bring their energy into your space (PSSST! You can grab a free, printable Crystal Bagua Map here!).
Allow the new crystal to stay in place for at least four weeks so that you can monitor how the energy shifts in the corresponding area of your life and business. This will seem subtle at first, but give it some time and pay close attention to how things begin to change.
For example, if you’d like to enhance the wealth and prosperity of your business, try adding an Amethyst or Smokey Quartz crystal to the wealth area of your space (according to the Crystal Bagua Map). Wait a few weeks and make note of any changes you notice in this area of your life. If things don’t improve like you’d hoped, try adding a second crystal to the space, or place a Clear Quartz crystal near the original stone to amplify its energy.
Using crystals in this way not only shifts the energy in your space and in your business, but it beautifies your space, which is enjoyable to both you AND your clients.
