Crystals and it’s maintenance

Enhance your healing & spiritual practice with natural crystals

Crystals are said to “have a stable and unchanging energy pattern, each with a unique frequency and energy field, or resonance”

Judy Hall-“The little book of crystals”

Crystals have existed on earth for millions of years. Crystals work with human energy field to absorb, focus and direct those energies at right path. The crystal healing technique has been in practice in many Asian and Egyptian countries for centuries.  

Crystals can strongly connect to your energy and intuition. Every crystal have their own specific energies with respect to their shape, size and type. Some keeps you more grounded and helps you find your inner purposes while some will help you to be more creative. For example, Rose quartz is known as “stone of love”- it opens up the individual for forgiveness and trust. Citrine removes all the negative traits in one’s life and gives more clarity in thinking.

How to cleanse crystals at home?

Cleansing the crystals regularly is the only way to restore them to its natural state. Several people could have touched it before those crystals reaches our hand, therefore its essential to remove their energetic fingerprints from the crystals before we set our intention. Also its recommended to cleanse and re-energize our crystals periodically(say yearly once) to discard any build up of negativity. Here are some of the convenient and effective ways to cleanse your healing crystals :

  • Moonlight– Keep your crystals in moonlight on Full moon day or Rohini nakshatra day. You can also keep the crystals in a bowl of flowers for a night on full moon day ,discard the flowers next day and take the stone.
  • Frankiscence: The fumes of frankincense helps to cleanse the crystals.
  • Lightning: Exposure of crystals to lightning on rainy days
  • Buddhist singing bowl: The vibrations from this buddha bowl will also help to cleanse the crystals
  • Salt water/sea water: Immerse the crystal in salt water or you can cleanse them in sea water on the new moon(amavasya)/full moon(pournami) day.
  • Natural water: Crystals can be cleansed easily with running water or soaking them in natural water. However this method is not recommended for soft stones or stones with Sulphur content.

Its always recommended to check the properties of the crystals before choosing the right cleansing method.

Intention setting with Crystals

Every crystals naturally possess certain qualities but its important to let our crystals know in which area we want them to help us with. Every goals begins with an intention and crystals will act as an wonderful tool in setting the right path for us to manifest those goals. There are 2 simple methods to set your intention :

  1. Write your intention in a piece of paper and place it under the crystal
  2. Hold the crystal in you hand, clear your mind of any negativity. With a conscious mind, set your intention

Few examples of setting intentions are “My mind, body and soul are healthy”, “I intend to forgive others and myself”, “I intend to find meaning in my work” etc

DIPLOMA In Warli Art

The Art of Warli- for the Artist in You by Iswarya Vignesh

Let’s explore this fascinating tribe and learn their unique style of painting.

India- a land blessed with impressive variety of culture and tradition along the diverse geographical features and climatic conditions. Different tribes and adivasis lived in this country with their own lifestyle, traditions, culture, food habits and rituals. But they all had one thing in common-“NATURE IS THEIR GOD”. They lived as an integral part of the nature. One such community is WARLI tribes of Maharashtra, one of the oldest tribes of India. Though historians predict that Warli art tradition can be traced back to the Neolithic period, this art came into the limelight only by 1970’s.

WARLI ART:

The art of warli gained its popularity at national and international level mainly because of the simplicity of the art- be it the shapes or the colours and materials used. Warlis lived in a minimalistic way, Dance and Music are the part of their life which can be seen in their art too. They have deep sense of respect towards the nature. All the instances from their day to day life became the motifs of their painting. These motifs along with the instances from their daily life are drawn in the loose rhythmic pattern. In short, they passed their legacy and tradition to the next generation through this art form.

Traditionally these paintings were done on the wall by the women of the family only for special occasions like wedding and harvest time. In late 70’s these people started adding more motifs of their social life and started drawing many creative pictures which helped this art to gain more popularity nationally and internationally. All their stories were just expressed with two basic colours- red from the earth and white from the rice.

HLP’S DIPLOMA IN WARLI ART

With increased popularity of this art, there are many short-term workshops and courses being conducted by various artists. A day or a week’s workshop might give some basic knowledge about certain motifs, but mastering this art needs continuous training and tremendous effort to express our life and thoughts in this simplified art form.
