Spring Is In The Air

Tuesday 20 September 2011

Spring has sprung, and it is the perfect moment to take some nourishing, relaxing time out to really enjoy it. Here at the Crystal Castle the gardens are even more beautiful than ever.

The autumn pruning has made way for some exotic new plantings, creating a tapestry of colours and a heady array of delicious fragrance.

With so many flowers in bloom it’s hard to choose where to feast your eyes. And there is a fresh buzz in the air as we prepare for a very special year ahead.

The Stupa preparations have progressed even further with the most recent visit of the Gyuto Monks of Tibet and you can now see where this unique monument will be constructed in the months to come.

Wisdom from the readers - Janey Sept 11

Tuesday 20 September 2011

Spring …The time of hope, renewal and new beginnings. As we leave behind the winter days of contemplation and quiet, we are propelled into a whole new energy. As the weather opens up new possibilities, we can turn to the Tarot card ‘The Fool’ for inspiration. ‘The Fool’ embraces faith and hope for fresh journeys and ventures for the coming year.

Astrologically, the combination of Virgo sun and a direct Mercury allows us to be thorough and grounded in planning for the future. The crystal Chrysoprase opens the heart and renews hope. It is ideal for energizing the body and opening us up to new directions.

It is timely now to turn our attention towards planting positive seeds that bless our future with blossoming and fruition.

Janey is available for readings at the Crystal Castle on Thursdays and Sundays. Phone ahead to make your booking. 02 6684 3111

New Treasures

Tuesday 20 September 2011

My buying trip earlier this year was one of the best ever, and more fun than ever, finding an extraordinary collection of crystals from around the world. Some of my favourites that are now here – Rainbow Obsidian Hearts, Moroccan Fossils and "Ruby" Spinel formations.

(the comments from "CCO" come from Madonna, our "Crystal Castle Oracle" and resident expert on crystal meanings and metaphysics).

All the best from Naren the Crystal Castle crystal explorer.

Rainbow Obsidian Hearts - these are hand polished in Mexico, in such a way that they reveal gorgeous heart shapes that glimmer with rainbow colours, out of a deep dark centre. They are getting much harder to find, but we got both single hearts, doubles, and even a few triples.
“CCO” ~It is said, Rainbow Obsidian invites illumination, protection and profound healing of the heart and relationships.

Moroccan Fossils - kids just love these, and the big ones are often bought for big (male) kids! From the Sahara Desert in Morocco, when it was an ocean, comes this assortment of orthoceras, goniatite and more, plus little ones made into pendants. I also really like these as they are so inexpensive, from a few dollars each, for something that is (no kidding) over 500 million years old.
“CCO” ~ Fossils are considered to be ”The Stone of Transformation” The Mystic Lore of these ancient wonders reminds us to be receptive to change and innovation.

"Ruby" Spinel formations - not really rubies, but commonly called Ruby Spinel due to the incredible sparkling ruby-like crystals, these formations are growing out of a milky white base of calcite. Like nothing I have ever seen before, in 27 years of roaming the world for crystals, I acquired these from a French crystal dealer, who found them in Vietnam over 16 years ago!
They are absolutely stunning, and I know you need a fairly high-end budget for one of these, but they are once-in-a-lifetime pieces.
“CCO” ~ Our Stunning Spinel pieces carry the Mystic Lore of new hope, revitalisation and inner strength.
