The Ancient Powers of Crystals

Mother Earth was generous enough to endow us with crystals meant to not only please us visually but also to act like a conduit of healing by filling us with positive energy.  It’s hard to track down the beginnings  of this ancient practice but experts believe it dates back to the very early days of humanity, when crystals were used in the form of amulets and talismans. Ancient civilisations such as the Chinese, Romans, Greeks and Egyptians, came up with different ways of using these gemstones for purification and healing: they made them into powders, drank them as elixirs, wore them as jewellery or used them for ceremonies and rituals.

A secret to self esteem

It’s critical the impact we have on how we think or feel about ourselves. Our self esteems entails us access to our soul, where we need to be in sync at all times. Without this, we could no longer be able to fulfil our true life purpose .Self esteem is our emotional self assessment of what we think of us as subjects. Many so we aim to feel sexy or beautiful.  I’ve come to know that these states are stages that tend to wear off eventually. A feeling we should all aim for is something which works for me. It’s the feeling of lightness. Around us, are examples of how we should aim to look and feel in order to better our life? We are shoved with information about how the outside should look. But as times moves on, there is more exposure in making us feel better reversing that…

Five quotes that yell ‘Freedom’.

Five quotes that yell ‘Freedom’. I’ve always wondered about it and what it means to me. ‘Freedom’ in everyone’s minds epitomizes something unique.

Spirituality: My kind of God. Part one. I have always believed in God-The higher power, the cosmic force, the spirit within. But I struggled to belong to a religion.  I knew I was spiritual but I just didn’t know the word for it. How do I say I believe in God but I don’t follow a religion? Is that even possible to do so? I just couldn’t adapt to any.            Taking all into account- I have decided to construct my own view- Here I share with you: Spirituality- My  Kind of God. I was baptised a Greek Orthodox.
