A brief Introduction to Crystal Healing

The following is a brief introduction to using Crystals and Gemstones for Healing Relaxation and Meditation. I have tried to put into Simple plain English a brief summary of some of the minerals that we stock, and the benefits many people have gained from the use of various Crystals.

CHOOSING Use the guide below to decide which crystals might be beneficial to you and then when choosing the individual stone just follow your intuition; the stone that you are drawn to is the one to choose.
CLEANSING It is advisable cleanse the stone by putting into running water for a few minutes after you have brought it and after using for healing. This is said to wash away negative energy that the stone picks up. If however the crystal looks very delicate it is wise to check when buying the stone that the mineral is robust enough to be washed.
USING YOUR CRYSTAL Simply get to know your stone at first. Relax whilst holding it and go to sleep with it under your pillow. You can as your knowledge progresses place it on a chakra. Details of these can be found in the many books that we sell on the subject.
RECHARGING After cleansing you stone it needs charging for maximum benefit; simply place in sunlight in the daytime when not in use or the moonlight at nighttime.
MEDICAL ADVICE always consult a doctor if you have symptoms that worry you as alternative therapies are meant to run alongside conventional treatment

What are they for?

Pendulums are primarily used for dowsing. Dowsing's primary function is to find an answer/solution to a question/problem. People have used dowsing for centuries to divine for water, to find ley-lines, to aid one in decision-making or even to look for missing persons!

What is a pendulum?

A pendulum can be a crystal, pendant, or metal hanging object suspended on a piece of ribbon, thread or chain. The object should not be too light and should be of a substantial weight hanging straight, to work efficiently. The choosing of a pendulum will be a very individual and personal thing. Everyone will have there own preference regarding the choice of which pendulum is right for or will work for them, (e.g. one may have preference to a pendant worn around their neck, whilst another may prefer to carry a pendulum around in a pouch in their pocket etc). Only you will know what's right for you - let your intuition guide you and go with what you feel!

How will I know if it will work for me?

There are many different methods to find out if a pendulum will work for you or not. One of the most basic and reliable methods of testing is to ask the pendulum directly through a series of specific questions!
First hold the pendulum suspended by the chain/thread etc, in your hand of preference so that it hangs straight and still. Then ask the pendulum "Please show me with clarity and truth your answer for yes" the pendulum should start to swing back and forth or move in a clockwise/anticlockwise rotation. Note which way the pendulum moves. Then ask your pendulum to " show you with clarity and truth an answer for no", again note which way the pendulum moves (it should move differently to that of the yes answer). Once you have determined which way the pendulum answers "yes" and "no", it is wise to test it with questions you know the answer to (the pendulum should move "yes" for "yes" answers and "no" for "no" ones accordingly) - in doing this you will know whether or not the pendulum will work with you truthfully and for the highest good of one and all (this should primarily always be the case). If the pendulum either does not move or gives the wrong answers to the questions you know, don't use it, it is most likely this pendulum is not the right one for you so try another one! When you have found one that will work with you, that's all there really is to the choosing of your pendulum! You have found your pendulum!

Crystal pendulums

Crystal pendulums have the added benefit of combining the healing benefits/properties of the crystal with a tool for dowsing. At Little Gems we have an assortment of crystal pendulums for you to choose from. E.g.: Clear quartz, Amethyst, Smokey quartz, Rose Quartz, Fluorite, Obsidian, Jasper, Agate and many more etc…(good problem solving ones are Agate, Carnelian, Tourmaline, Rutilated Quartz, Quartz and Obsidian!) You could choose a crystal pendulum which is specifically related to what its use will be for, e.g.: - for dowsing in love matters or relationships, etc… - Rose Quartz would be ideal!

Enjoy using your pendulum!

Once purchasing your pendulum you can use it whenever you want. You will find it so useful and helpful in dowsing for all sorts of things, you won't want to leave the house without it! Infact it will work all the better if you are able to keep/carry/wear your pendulum on or with you as often as possible (it will attune with your vibration and therefore work more effectively for you). Always keep your pendulum safe however, and for your own personal use only - this way you can be sure it will help and work solely for you and not be interfered by another's vibrations (which could effect the clarity and truth of an answer in whatever it is you are dowsing)!
It is also a good idea to get into the habit before dowsing to ask your pendulum whether it "will work for you today"(don't forget to always ask it to show you the answer with clarity and truth). It may be that occasionally for whatever reason it may not want to work. This could be for any number of reasons e.g.: the question is not clear/specific enough, or it is undecided on the answer/it is not the right time to give an answer - if this happens, ask again later, and if it repeatedly happens leave it and try another day. May be you already know your answer deep down or maybe non-action is required to the question involved! So it would be wise to be prudent and patient in getting your answer - the more you use your pendulum, the more you'll recognise and know the answers automatically to respective questions. Most of all enjoy using your pendulum - I wouldn't be without mine!

Happy dowsing!
At Little Gems we will be only too happy to try and answer any queries or questions you may have regarding Pendulums, crystals etc… just drop us a line or give us a call.

Massage Wands


What is Massage?

Massage is beneficial to us in a variety of ways. It can improve blood circulation, calm the nervous system, improve muscle tone, stimulate skin function, ease muscular and joint aches and pains and most of all it 'feels' wonderful!

Massage is a gentle art form of healing which is suitable for anyone of any age. However, there are times and conditions when it would be best avoided (e.g. on a full stomach). Using your commonsense is the best insight, quite often all it will entail is leaving out a specific body area or if unsure leave completely alone.

Most importantly do not massage any bruised or broken skin, an area of infection, or a person with a high temperature/fever, an area of varicose veins or any swollen or inflamed area.
Basically massage is a way of stroking the body with variations in length and depth of strokes. You should however, always-direct firm strokes towards the heart. The long flowing massage strokes with the minimal pressure on the body are the most soothing and relaxing (this technique is known as effleurage). The whole hand is used, by giving gentle even pressure, which is often performed at the start and finish of a massage.

Putting it into practice!

Here are some simple guidelines in the use of a massage wand or a large tumbled stone:

The secret is to work very gently using small circular movements over any painful area of the body, anti-clockwise (unwinding) first to remove pain, then clockwise to put the crystal healing energy in - use your intuition to guide you with respect to how long you unwind for, and like wise to wind in aswell, you will know and feel when it is right to stop! If the area is very painful it is highly advised that you must work just slightly away from the body in the aura; this is known as aura massage.
Try using two different crystals if possible, maybe for example a Smokey quartz, amethyst, tourmaline or obsidian for removing/taking out the pain (unwinding) and a clear quartz, fluorite, citrine or rose quartz for putting the healing energy in.
The healing properties of the crystal you choose will depend upon what it is needed for (e.g. Smokey quartz, tourmaline and selenite (this is a very good all over cleanser) work well on back problems whilst rose quartz is very good with regard to balancing the emotions and promoting the release of impurities. It is very calming/soothing in cases of stress and tension and as well as being good for the skin and muscles it can stimulate the proper functioning of the heart and can be used to decrease coughs and sooth the lung and bronchial area!
Have a go at trying to work only in the aura, using massage techniques.

If you are not qualified in massage, no more than this is recommended. Like wise it would be wise to consult a qualified crystal therapist/practitioner before using any crystal you are not familiar with, regarding its healing properties/benefits. Crystals are very powerful and need treating with respect!

Here at 'Little Gems' we offer you an assortment of various different massage wands. Each one is reasonably priced and totally unique. They all vary in size, shape and crystal to cater for your individual needs. We are only too happy to help you if you need to know any more - just drop us a line or give us a call!
