Moss Agate activates two chakras, our Heart and Root Chakras. The “Mossy-ness” of Moss Agate is Hornblende inclusions mixed within the agate to give the appearance of “Moss”.
Moss Agate directs our energy into achieving our goals, boosting our spirits and healing our wounds allowing us to forge forward and strive for the best we can be. Moss Agate keeps our spiritual energies grounded, healing the fabric of our past lives.
Moss Agate will increase prosperity and nurture our communication with Mother Earth and her loving Nature Spirits.

This incredible Root Chakra Stone is often overlooked and some consider them not very powerful. I would like to clear the air, and renew our interest in this beautiful and interesting stone.
Agates are usually a slower vibration and lower in intensity helping us stay tethered to Mother Earth. Agate is a wonderful grounding stone allowing us to work at a higher frequency without losing touch with the earth. They are great for airplane travel when we are disconnected from the Earth’s frequency, and strengthening the body, mind and inner courage through regular proximity to our bodies or chakra gridding.
If you are in need of an Aura cleansing, this stone can help wash your aura and reenergize your auric field. This can be done by carrying it with you, using it in your meditation or creating an alter within your sacred space. I mentioned Chakra Gridding earlier, this practice is done by an Energy Worker with knowledge of the Chakra Stones and intuitively selects crystals to open and bring balance to our blocked our out-of-balance chakras. I utilize crystals to assist in chakra balancing as part of my Reiki Practice and Crystal Service to individuals.
Agates are the building blocks for other crystals to form like quartz, amethyst and citrine. Known as intrusive igneous rocks, which mean they are formed within the magma, inside of a volcano and slowly cool creating crystals over a long period of time and often large in size. The Amethyst Geodes found in many countries around the world are typically an Agate Shell that allows water to enter the hollowness of the geode leaving mineral deposits to begin the crystal formations that occur for millions of years. Without agate we would not have these beautiful geodes, instead they would be hollow and void of crystals.
Many agates are dyed because of their porous characterization. Not only do they take on the colouring extremely well, they also will emit the frequency of that particular colour, some say this cheapens the stones quality. This is just a belief system, if you feel that the stone is less valuable in the metaphysical sense because of the dying then likely this stone will not benefit you, if you feel attracted to this stone, then you will gain its warming grounding connection and the powerful healing that Agates provide.

Lets start at the base of your spine in a place that is called the Muladhara Chakra.
This Chakra represents our very existence on earth, the things or tangible items that form who we are. They include the food that we eat, the shelter we live in, but also includes our own survival skills, courage and will power. These items create what many of us call our foundation of who we are.
We use the term “I am feeling grounded” or “I feel connected” often enough, but have we ever thought about why or how it happens. Throughout the entire length of your spine, nerve endings from all reaches of our body, attach, and send information up the spinal column to our brains. At the base of our spine a particular nerve called the Sciatic Nerve attaches sending signals to our brains, these signals help identify our connectedness or grounded to Mother Earth. The Sciatic Nerve is the longest and also the largest diameter nerve within the human body, originating at the heal of our feet running up our legs, through our hip bones and into the Spinal Column at Muladhara the Root Chakra. This magnificent nerve is that which allows us to feel connected and grounded. When we are experiencing sciatica, we are experiencing a disconnect and are no longer as grounded as we could be. With each foot step, we connect to the energy of Mother Earth, and send her vibration through ourselves.
For those of us experiencing sciatica or a loss of connection with this Earth Element, Help is on its way, you will feel more connected. First you can try some simple yoga poses that you can do in the comfort of your home can help alleviate sciatica, try the trusted Pigeon Pose. I also believe that particular crystals can also help connect us with Mother Earth. The stones that I would suggest are Garnet, Hematite, Jet, Obsidian and Agate. Hematite is my “go to” stone when I want to resonate with Mother Earth again, it is very heavy compared to others similarly sized, and also can aid in detoxifying the blood, this heaviness reminds me of earths gravity and her constant and gentle pull towards her.
You can learn much more in my workshops that I conduct regularly in different yoga studios, or from my home. http://www.appealingenvironments.com/index.html
Crystals have been used for 1000’s of years by Shamans and Ancient Healers to heal their bodies and protect their environments. Found around the globe, in every religion and spirituality, Crystals have fueled our minds and bodies for generations.
Have you ever wondered why you were drawn to a particular Stone or Crystal? For me, it has always been Amethyst. Not just because of it being my birthstone (February), but for the spiritual protection that this stone offers. The connection with our higher purpose and direction. Well at least this is what amethyst offers me.
What crystals catch your eye? hopefully not just diamonds, although they are very powerful stones too. Maybe it is Rose Quartz (as it is Valentine’s Day), Citrine or Aventurine. The quartz family of crystals offer us a huge variety of energies and each with their own beauty. As an avid rock collector and jewelry maker, I am always asked which one is my favourite. All of them, I answer. Mother Nature has taken the time to create such beautiful specimens for us to wear and enjoy that no one could single out just one stone to focus all of their love on. Each day I pick from a large bowl of crystals, a stone or two to carry in my pocket. These little additions help balance my day and ward off anything that may cause in imbalance in my daily routine.
My Belief is that quartz is fossilized water. The large amethyst geodes that come from Brazil and other countries are actually an egg shell of Agate Stone (which is porous) that allows water to enter the hollow area of the stone (Geode) the water brings elements from the periodic table that allow the quartz crystal to grow into one of many different types, in this case Amethyst. Look at this photo, and you will be able to see the agate shell I am talking about.
Amethyst offers us so much. Aiding our meditation, strengthening our immune system and brain activity, healing, our bodies, love, inspiration and intuition, lastly amethyst can help rid our bodies of addictions (what ever addiction you may have). Remember that we are all addicts in one way or another, maybe you are addicted to love, or maybe like me, addicted to Crystals especially amethyst.
But there are so many other stones that can offer healing and balancing of your Chakras. For those people that spend loads of time in front of their computers, (like me) may I suggest a stone that can help absorb the EMF (Electro Magnetic Frequencies) that are emitted. Galena, and Iron Pyrite are two in particular, and of course there are others. These two work for me and are stationed near my desk. My next blog will be exclusively on EMF and Crystals. (Stay Tuned)
