Crystal Spirit Card - Kunzite

Tuesday 17 May 2011

The spirit of Kunzite appears as a winged heart revealing a strong and beautiful feminine face. The soft pinks and lilacs represent a surprising strength and depth of feeling within the heart. It takes courage and humility to truly open to the wisdom of the heart.

Kunzite teaches us that self-love is the foundation to open to all other love. When one’s heart is open, there is a wonderful recognition of being interconnected with all life. This is divine love.

Allow the energy of Kunzite to take you into the silence of your heart, the home of your divine love and the place where your true wisdom resides.

Amethyst - The Master Healer

Wednesday 23 March 2011

Amethyst – The Master Healer

Amethyst crystal is a variety of quartz, well known through the ages as a healing stone. It comes in the most beautiful shades of purple with colour ranging from a soft, pinkish lavender to the darkest and richest of violets and purple, reminiscent of plump ripe heady grapes and sparkling burgundy wine. If you look carefully some amethyst can also contain surprise flashes of red and blue.

Some of the earliest discoveries of amethyst were excavated from the ancient Egyptian tomb of King Djer, who reigned in the 1st Dynasty, approximately 3000 B.C.E. The ancient Egyptians knew amethyst as Hemag and used it to guard against guilty and fearful feelings. Egyptian soldiers wore amethyst in battle in order to retain their courage.

The modern name comes from the Greek "amethóstos", which means, "not to be drunk". In Greek mythology, Dionysus, the god of wine, was pursuing a maiden named Amethystos, who refused his affections. Amethystos prayed to the gods to remain chaste, a prayer which the goddess Artemis answered, transforming her into a white stone. Humbled by Amethystos's desire to remain chaste, Dionysus poured wine over the stone as an offering. This wine dyed the crystal purple.

The wealthy ancient Greeks and Romans drank from goblets of amethyst, as they believed it guarded against drunkenness. They thought they could drink as much as they liked without suffering from any ill effects! Such goblets gave them added protection against potential assassins, as amethyst was thought to lose its brightness in the presence of poison.

Known as the "Stone of Spirit" or the "Stone of Integrity," Amethyst has long been associated with purity and piety. It is the stone of the Buddha and in Tibet it is popularly used in the making of prayer beads used in the practice of meditation. In Christian traditions Amethyst is also known as the Bishop's Stone and is still part of the official garb worn by Catholic Bishops.

Purple has long been considered a royal color, so it is no surprise that amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels. They were a favorite stone of Catherine the Great. Beads of amethyst have also been found in Anglo-Saxon graves in England.

In modern times, amethyst is associated with the astrological sign of Aquarius and with the planet Jupiter. Its element is air, and it is considered to be the stone of faithful lovers.

Amethyst is a Quartz crystal, composed of silicon dioxide with traces of ferric iron. The colouring is due to the presence of colour centres that are created where silicon ions in the crystal lattice of the quartz have been substituted by ions of iron.

The crystal is formed in silica-rich liquids deposited in gas cavities (geodes) in lava. It occurs in crystalline masses. When conditions permit, it forms hexagonal crystals that are usually grown from a base. These crystals are most often not well developed, and so are generally found as clusters of crystal points. Although most commonly found in geodes, Amethyst is sometimes found as a stalactite.

Amethyst is considered to be a master healing stone. Extremely calming, yet deep, this most dynamic and persuasive crystal can bring a wonderful sense of serenity and peace. It clears intoxication in the sense that it soothes and clears the mind, allowing one to move out of the heavy and denser "intoxicating" earthbound realm into the higher frequencies of Spirit.

Why not try it out? After a stress-filled day or when you are feeling muddled or low energy, experiment by taking an amethyst in your receptive hand. This is your left hand if you are right handed or your right if you are left handed. Breathe deeply and allow the peaceful vibrations of the stone to soothe you.

Amethyst is said to aid in the development of pyschic awareness and is often used during meditation to help open and activate the crown chakra. Some people also recommend sleeping with amethyst under your pillow to aid restful sleep and pleasant dreams.

Lotus Infinity Wall

Tuesday 23 November 2010

Turiya Bruce, local artist, created the lotus mosaic on the infinity wall that surrounds the pond where the four metre high Buddha statue peacefully sits.

Turiya has been an artist since a very young child and is well recognised in the Byron shire and this was to be her first time working mosaic with glass as her medium. “As the infinity wall developed so did my talents working with mosaic. I was very inspired as I love the projects Sono and Naren King create at the Crystal Castle and I loved the giant Buddha that was coming to this site—I saw it before it was out of the crate and was so impressed. Two of these four metre high Buddha’s are carved at the same time, just in case one gets damaged along the way, and each one is carved from one huge piece of stone, one giant rock. When I saw the love that had gone into the carving of this massive statue I knew that I could be with this job and give it what it needs and make a really beautiful and sacred design.

I began by sitting at the wall and doing a little prayer asking that it be beautiful and guided so that it would turn out to be fitting for the Buddha. A lotus is symbolic of beauty that grows from the deep mud and I wanted the lotus on the infinity wall to show that we all can bloom and blossom into full flower, and I prayed this project I had taken on would blossom into full flower. The whole journey to create the lotus was really quite extraordinary, and it took around ten working days to complete. It was a significantly spiritual artistic experience and an amazing learning curve that was strongly guided.”

The giant Buddha and Lotus Infinity Wall are one of the special features on the Buddha Walk at the Crystal Castle.
