Today's messages during the Crystal Restorative workshop at Yoga on the Vine:
Feel the support of the Earth beneath you.
Feel the support of the community of beings around you.
Feel the space and possibilities in the sky above you.
Trust the home of your self within you.

Day 5 of #BalancedYogaTherapy
Tigers Eye loves to dance with #Risk, balancing the elation of risk taking with the grounding of true self-confidence, the deep awareness of our connection to the source energy that sustains us all. Life is full of healthy risks - falling in love, going after your dreams, walking out of your door each morning into the world. Tiger's Eye enhances practicality, overcoming challenges and the ability to feel at home in the world. This stone releases fear and introversion, brings joy and freedom and imparts grace and strength. It promotes appreciation for the pure and beautiful, allowing passion for life to open and blossom. I can't imagine a more wonderful ally for the perpetual practice of risk taking that is our life. This stone acts as a guide toward the paths that wind toward the beautifully wild risks worth taking and gently nudges us back from the edge of dangerous and unhealthy chasms. Find joy in your life and call on Tigers Eye to bolster your courage in stepping into your personal power.

Day 4 of #BalancedYogaTherapy
The theme is fear. There are many crystals that assist us in working to balance the healthy aspects of fear that keep us safe with the unhealthy varieties of fear that can trap us and keep us from fully living while we are alive. The one that spoke to me clearly today and asked to share its message is Labradorite. One of the yoga teachings is that part being human is the fear of change, and if we trace this all the way to the source, it is rooted in our fear of death, the ultimate change. Labradorite is the stone of transformation, banishing fear and insecurities, allowing us to trust the larger process of the world and our current place in our own particular processes. This stone unites imagination & practicality, dispels the illusions that fear can create, and simultaneously grounds us while raising our consciousness. It tells us that we are always already changing and transforming every moment, cells inside our body and living and dying and decomposing and providing nutrients and nourishment for the next cycle of life within us. So it goes with our mental constructs and our emotional experiences. Labradorite reminds us that we are made to live fully while in this physical form and appreciate and make use of it, so that we can meet the change of death and transformation to the next form with open eyes and heart and mind. This stone says: Be alive now! Notice the world around you! Engage your life with your whole self and be patient and persistent with your trusting in this wild ride we are all on. #CrystalSupport #TransformationIsAllAround #WithinAndWithout #AllisWell #AllWillBeWell #HariomTatSat

Day 3 of #BalancedYogaTherapy. When we are in #crisis, it can feel like we have no control over what is happening to us. We may lose track of all the different pieces of our lives and even our selves and feel scattered, disorganized and turbulent. It can be incredibly difficult to even begin to find a solution or simply a clear perspective about what is happening. Taking some deeeeeeep breaths is a great first step. As for crystal support in times of crisis, #Fluorite is a wonderful stone to assist in finding clarity when things are chaotic. It has a strong, steady stabilizing effect and brings order to chaos, applying calm, clear energy to disruptive or disorganized situations. It Increases concentration and mental clarity, balances the positive and negative aspects of the mind, helping us recognize what is actually happening so we can take necessary action. Fluorite enhances our understanding of the balance necessary in all relationships and reminds us that life moves in cycles and ups and downs, but like our body's immune system, is dedicated and devoted to balance and wholeness. In fact, fluorite allows us to recognize the purity of the universe and to understand that each portion of the universe maintains an inherent perfection in order to allow the unfolding of the perfectly imperfect universe. There is a pattern at work at all times, even when we are caught up in the immediate confusion of crisis and cannot see or feel it. This stone activates the nourishing energies of the body and encourages ultimate health in the physical, mental and emotional bodies. It is useful in dispelling disorders at the commencement of symptoms, rapidly reacting to imbalances and supporting restoration and rebalancing.
You can call on the qualities of these crystals at any time and they will support and strengthen these same qualities within you, which you already posses. Crystal therapy works by connecting our vibrational energy to that of the particular stone you are working with. Since this is an energetic exchange, you do not need to physically be in the presence of the stone to feel the beneficial effects. You can look at this photo, breathe, and connect with Fluorite ✨

For Day 2 of #BalancedYogaTherapy we are talking about #anxiety. Fear and anxiety can keep us trapped in a world of worst case scenarios, interfering with our enjoyment of our lives as well as keeping us from taking actions to move through the emotions and explore other mental and emotional perspectives. Anxiety can be very overwhelming, which is why #Amazonite is a wonderful stone for working with anxiety & fear. It is cooling and calming, reminding us to take some deep breaths, step back from the spiral of self doubt and scary stories we tell ourselves that may or may not be true. Amazonite balances the heart and throat chakras, helping us to speak with love, from the heart, both to others and to ourselves with our internal voice. It is a calming stone that helps balance and stabilize the nervous system, bringing us from the flustered state of stress and fight/flight/freeze back to the relaxation/wellness/everything-in-us-is-working-together-for-our-highest-well-being state. It stimulates a sincere desire to understand and to learn and encourages investigation of the unknown, as well as the reinterpretation of information in new and more relevant ways. These last qualities are extremely useful for anxiety relief, as a perspective shift can change our whole outlook and allow us to distinguish between fear that keeps us safe in a practical way (don't jump out of an airplane without a parachute, don't walk into a dark alley if you've got that intuitively BAD feeling about it) and the kind of anxious paralysis that tells us to stay small and never take risks, even though they may actually lead to the most amazing and beneficial experiences. I have personally lived with very strong anxiety for the past 2 years or so, and it was only when I stopped trying to avoid it and decided to befriend this new part of myself that was taking up so much space in my heart/mind, when I shifted how I viewed the experience, then I was able to learn from my anxiety. Through this exploration of the unknown terrain of my anxiety, I have been given several incredibly valuable pieces of self knowledge, that I am integrating and continuing to learn from in my daily life. #selfstudy

I am sponsoring the #BalancedYogaTherapy challenge, and for each day's theme I will be sharing a crystal that is beneficial. For day 1, the theme was #sadness, which can be painful and beautiful together, if we can allow our hearts to be broken open. This can take a lot of time and support and self care, but there is a sacred vulnerability that shows up when we are sad. There is a wonderful quote about how we all feel sadness at some point in our lives and it is this experience which nurtures compassion for others. When we have felt deep pain, we can be much more sympathetic to another's suffering, and that is a healing in and of itself.
The stone for today is #Carnelian ❀️
Carnelian helps to energize us, which is a wonderful balance to the depleting and often lethargic effects of sadness, when we feel that nothing really matters and everything feels so hard to do while carrying our sadness and grief.
Other qualities of Carnelian are that it balances the root and sacral chakras. Gently activating and warming, it encourages the natural healing abilities of the body. It removes the fear of death and promotes acceptance of the cycles of life. Stimulates creativity. Energizes the sacral chakra and helps release trauma and imbalances here, even if they have been present for many years. Helps to restore the energy flow where there is rigidity, stiffness or inflammation. Orange Carnelian is one of the best stones to use when shock, accident or illness has occurred. It has a powerful grounding effect, anchoring you to your body and healing physical abuse. Restores vitality when you are depleted. Helps with low back pain and arthritis. Can be used to cleanse other crystals.

@callistojewelry is one of my favorite accounts. Her work and her photography are incredible. Even more importantly to me, her connection with the energy of the stones is palpable. Follow her for more beauty in your ig feed and fall in love with her work πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ’šπŸ™ŒπŸΎ I believe in abundance mentality, which is simply the idea that if you feel a calling to be creative, follow that calling, no matter how many other people seem to already be doing something similar. Our world needs more love and more people loving themselves and their lives. Creativity is always an offering of love, from the heart. Find what makes your heart happy and do more of that. I’m not saying it will be easy or instant or that you will become wealthy beyond your wildest imaginings. You may have to have another job to support yourself. You will definitely have to hustle and work to find your place within your creative niche. I suggest that you redefine your idea of success - figure out what is truly enough for you and strive for that, rather than endlessly chasing vast riches or fame within your industry and continually feeling like a failure for not achieving it. You don’t have to be known all around the world to be worthy. You may not want to become a big company and manage other people. Your personal success scale is best defined by your level of happiness and satisfaction with yourself. Balance big dreams with practicality and be kind and reasonable with yourself. Your creative offering, whatever it is, it worthy and wonderful, whether it takes the form of making jewelry or teaching yoga or coloring with your kids or talking with your best friend about life or building houses or solving physics problems or how you choose your outfits or bake bread. Study other people in your field, notice their work and their process, learn from it, but do not become lost in another’s expressions. Keep listening to your inner voice. Allow any jealousy or envy you might feel about others' skill or success to be transmuted into inspiration by appreciating the time, talent and dedication they are pouring into their craft. Do your thing and encourage and support everyone else doing their thing!
