Amethyst is one of my favourite crystals! I am absolutely in aw of Mother Nature and the amazing colours you can discover in gemstones. Amethyst has some of the most stunning shades of purple. I've been lucky over the year and occasionally stumbled across this glorious gemstone in the wild while rock hunting. It just takes your breath away when you see it twinkling away when you don't expect it at your feet.

It's a great crystal for helping you to lower your tension and stress when you are feeling overwhelmed. Block that negative energy coming at you and rediscover how to stand on your own two feet with courage. Know you are protected and remember how to breath through the stress.

If you work with Lunar energies, Amethyst can help you as you are focusing on your desires and wishes during manifestation work. This can be when you are working with setting your goals in place during the New Moon cycle or even if you are working through the phases to increase as well as when focusing on letting go of negativity and or bad habits during the waning cycle.

Cheers everyone!

It's always a sad time when our pets are not feeling well or are down in the dumps. Sometimes they are ill, other times they are dealing with their own type of emotional stresses. Maybe it's loneliness or sadness with their humans being away? Or they are dealing with a stressful situation and reacting to it. There are so many things that can be going on. I know, I currently have 3 cats and a dog and there are days that life is chaotic!

It may surprise you, but you can also give healing crystals to your pet to help them as well as yourself. In the same way that they work to help your emotions and healing, they can also partner with proper veterinary care and emotional support care. Each type of crystal has it's own healing abilities to work with.

Help! I don't know which stone to chose from for my pet!

It can be difficult when trying to choose the proper healing crystal for your cat or dog. Especially since you can't just ask them what the problem is and then immediately locate the correct crystal to help them. So you have to somewhat follow your instincts when it comes to crystal healing.

If you think they are lonely or sad because of something that has gone on? Or if they have been recently separated from family members or trying to adjust to a new home? Then you can probably easily find a crystal to help with emotional support as they transition in their lives. Sodalite can be a wonderful gemstone to give to your pet when they are dealing with this type of situation. You can find some on this page of my website by clicking here.

If you are unsure and really feeling stuck and want to help? Perhaps consider using a Quartz Crystal. These types of crystals help with an "overall" good energy to help change negative vibes to positive vibes. You can use polished or natural stones when it comes to pet healing. Just remember to choose the correct size so that if you are looking for a small dog, you don't end up buying a stone that would be too heavy for them to wear.

Take the time to ask questions on whomever you are purchasing your healing stones from. If you have worries, thoughts or just need a little help, it never hurts to ask. If you have questions about my healing crystals, you can send me a note here. As you are looking for your stone, follow your instincts.

It's super important though that you never replace proper veterinary health care when using crystals for pet healing. This type of healing goes hand in hand with the care that your pet's doctor provides and should be considered as companion crystals.

Okay so I have my Crystal, now what do I do?

If you have previously worked with healing stones for yourself, you probably have a protocol that you personally follow when working with the stones. You should be able to adapt that to your cat or dog in some way. Here are a few steps you could follow:

1. Cleanse the crystal. This helps to remove any residual energies that it may have picked up on the way to you and your pet. Cleansing can be as simple as running under water and visualizing anything negative washing away to as complicated as working with candles, incense and other supplies you might use for cleansing. It's a very personal choice on how you do this.

2. Once the crystal is cleansed, take the time to get to know it a little bit. Hold it between your hands and hold a picture in your mind about how you would like it to help your pet. If it's a general healing, perhaps think of a colour in your mind that represents "healing" and then visualize that colour going into the crystal. Basically you are programming the crystal or asking/telling it what to do for your pet. Make sure you tell the stone (even if it sounds silly to you) that the stone is a gift for your (name your pet) and you wish it to do (this/this/this). This act helps to give the crystal a task.

3. When you feel the crystal is ready, attach it to your pet's collar. Spend time petting your pet and visualizing the healing colour from the crystal surrounding and healing your cat or dog.

It's very important that you fully understand when using this type of healing, that these crystals are companions on your pet's journey through life. They never ever replace proper veterinary care. If you ever feel that the crystal has become hazardous, broken or could hurt them, remove it immediately. It has done what it was programmed to do to the extent that it was able to. They are not a cure, they are a friend to help.

If the stone falls off, there are various philosophy on that. Some people believe that when a stone leaves you, it's done it's job and is ready to move on. Others believe that it's become heavy with negative energy needs to be cleansed. Or? It's simply a case of "well, I didn't attach that well enough!" When this happens, you must decide what the right course of action is for your pets' healing crystal. Always remember, the universe has plans for our four legged friends and they are sometimes only meant to be with us and share our lives for a short period of time. A crystal perhaps can help elevate stress and negative emotional impacts on their lives so you should always consider them to be your gifts to them as they are in your arms.

May your pet’s life be long and healthy! If you'd like to see what pet healing crystals I have in stock? Click here.

Besides the immensely large spider population, I've added a new location to my eventual "bucket list" location of places to visit. I've collected a few videos so you can have a look at them and see why I have fallen in love with this particular location. Maybe you will too.

They are located in Atherton, Tablelands Area in Australia. You can explore 300 square meters of man made tunnels and grottos that they have built that include amazing natural crystals and fossils.

From what I"m reading from their website, you can also take self guided tours and feel the stones as well as take images and even crack your own! But I think I'd like to just go there to experience being close to the crystals themselves.

Because I'm a big fan of Trip Advisor? I checked them out there too. They have a lot of pretty good reviews

Curious? Heading on vacation to Australia? Add it to your Bucket List. You can check out there information on their site by visiting this link. A new window will open to the Crystal Caves Self Guided Tour Page.

Now, I just have to stop trading coffee for crystals so I can add more to my Bucket List fund! :)
