Jade Reiki Jewelry and Jade Crystal Healing Jewelry

Jade is a powerful and important chakra gemstone. 

For more than 6,000 years (that we know of) Jade has been recognized and used for its powerful metaphysical and healing properties, by people all over the world. Jade has been used ceremonially in Europe, Polynesia, the Americas and Asia for a long, long time. While all sorts of attributes are ascribed to Jade, there is a consensus among healers and shamans across virtually all indigenous cultures around three in particular: as a channel to our dreams, as an aid in fertility and for protection.

Jade can help us dream more vividly, become more open and sensitive to understanding our dreams, or even help us become aware of spirit-world meanings and information that we have been insensitive to. Jade has also been known across cultures to aid in physical health and healing.

Two totally different minerals are commonly sold as “Jade,” – Nephrite, and Jadeite. Nephrite is composed of calcium magnesium silicate and is more of an olive-green. Jadeite (true Jade) is a sodium aluminum silicate and can range from pastel green, leaf-green, blue-green, and emerald green all the way to lavenders, pinks, reds and oranges. Jade is associated with the Heart Chakra and the Taurus Zodiac sign.

In my practice at Cosmic Lotus Jewelry I use my training as a Certified Vinyasa Yoga and Reiki Teacher to select jade stones and design jade chakra jewelry, crystal jewelry, yoga jewelry, healing jewelry, crystal healing jewelry, reiki jewelry, and jade gemstone jewelry, for its healing chakra benefits.


Hematite Crystal Healing Jewelry and Hematite Reiki Jewelry

Hematite is neither a crystal nor a gem, but rather a mineral – and a powerful one at that. With its dense, heavy presence and deep, dark brilliant appearance, most can immediately understand why people have been drawn to the metaphysical energy properties of Hematite for thousands of years. Many people may be familiar with the popular “magnetized” Hematite bracelets and trinkets, however, it does not occur naturally in this state, so be aware of this when purchasing for your own healing purposes. Both magnetized and naturally un-magnetized Hematite have their own, different benefits.

Because Hematite is heavily iron-based, it is very much a grounding stone when used in crystal therapy. It has long been recognized in this sense with the forces of stabilization and protection. While a polished Hematite stone is striking in its Cosmic, metallic appearance, if it scratched or broken, it will “bleed” a rusty color. Anciently, these were known as “blood stones.” So, clearly, there is a very heavy and essential power available here – Hematite can help re-establish deep grounding and connection with both the natural forces and flows of the Earth and ourselves. This is important. In this same sense, Hematite can be helpful with recuperation from confusing life events; ancients used it to aid with divination.

It is associated with the solar plexus and heart, or Base, Chakras and the Aries, Aquarius and Capricorn zodiac signs.

Hematite is an important chakra stone in my crystal therapy practice, As a Certified Vinyasa Yoga and Reiki Teacher, I take time to select the proper Hematite stones, and incorporate them into my hematite chakra jewelry, hematite crystal jewelry, hematite yoga jewelry, hematite healing jewelry, hematite crystal healing jewelry, hematite reiki jewelry, and hematite gemstone jewelry specifically for their powerful chakra benefits. 


Ruby Zoisite Crystal Healing Jewelry and Ruby Zoisite Reiki Jewelry

Ruby Zoisite is a complex gemstone in terms of crystal therapy and chakra jewelry. It is one of my very favorite stones to work with is Ruby Zoisite. It features endlessly brilliant combinations of emerald green and ruby hues and some truly unique and powerful metaphysical properties as well. Also known as Anyolite,

Ruby Zoisite is what is known as a “combination crystal,” because the foundation green Zoisite has become home to actual Ruby crystals that are embedded within it. This generates a powerful mixture of Ruby’s love and passion together with Zoizite’s earthy patience and self-knowledge.

Ruby Zoisite is known to help make a powerful connection between a person’s core, inner self and meaningful, and unseen things in the everyday world that might otherwise go unnoticed. Throughout the ages, different cultures have used Ruby Zoisite to enhance psychic abilities or to make contact with a spirit guide.

When placed on the Crown chakra, Ruby Zoisite can increase one’s receptiveness to spirituality by opening the body’s own energy field. Ruby Zoisite has also been known to support those who seek to define or refine their own individuality as a part of the world and people they experience. Ruby zoisite chakra jewelry, ruby zoisite crystal jewelry, ruby zoisite yoga jewelry, ruby zoisite healing jewelry, ruby zoisite crystal healing jewelry, ruby zoisite reiki jewelry, ruby zoisite gemstone jewelry, and ruby zoisite jewelry can be used as part of regimens to prevent mood-swings or maintain emotional balance during stressful life situations.

How does Ruby Zoisite work? Its mineral and energy properties transform negative energy and help it flow into the positive emotional energy. Through its association with the strong emotions of love and passion, and it’s grounding in rootedness, patience, and tapping into the core of who we really are, Ruby Zoisite can have the effect of transforming the negative aspects of our strong emotions into their positive aspects … anger to resolve, jealously to compassion, fear to seeking. Its primary Chakras are the Crown and Heart and its associated Astrological signs are Aries and Aquarius.

As a Certified Vinyasa Yoga and Reiki Teacher, I can truly appreciate and understand these deep healing associations, and use this training to create my Cosmic Lotus Jewelry.


Pink Sunstone Used in Sacred Chakra Jewelry

Pink Sunstone is great to work with because it helps make beautiful jewelry and it offers such powerful healing properties, and such amazing combinations with other stones. Sunstone is actually a cousin of Labradorite and gem variety of Feldspar -- a family of silicates that comprises nearly 60% of the Earth's crust.  Sunstone is truly a beautiful gem; it gets its name because when the sun hits it, iridescent reflections shimmer off of it, making a pink glow.

For this reason, Sunstone has long been known to capture and transmit the many metaphysical powers of the sun. It can help bring out the light, or positivity, in all situations, even when they are difficult for us to see or understand. It has historically been known as a “lucky” charm, however, seasoned and trained crystal healers understand that what casual wearers experience as “luck” is really the metaphysical power of the stone itself at work.

The Sunstone enables the wearer to who feels wronged or abandoned to find their inner confidence and optimism, turning fear into strength and motivation. The Sunstone was traditionally used by ancient Greeks to connect with their Sun Gods, by many First Nations peoples in medicine wheel rituals, by, and by several ancient Asian Indian communities for protection from other-worldly dark deities.

The Sunstone’s Primary Chakra is the Root Chakra; its Secondary Chakras are the Sacral Chakra and the Solar Plexus Chakra. Its Astrological signs are Leo and Libra.


Dalmatian Jasper and Chakra Jewelry

Because of my training as a Certified Vinyasa Reiki Yoga Teacher, I truly appreciate the deep, deep chakra power of Dalmatian Jasper and how it can be used in Chakra jewelry, Yoga jewelry and crystal healing jewelry.

Dalmatian Jasper has been used throughout the ages to make animal and spirit totems. It is most readily known for its calming and healing properties, used to harmonize emotions that are confused or misaligned. It is also recognized as being a powerful aid in preventing the misalignment of emotions going into situations that are likely to be upsetting or confusing. This isn’t surprising, as Dalmatian Jasper is known to help overly analytical individuals gain clarity, and it is also associated with the calming and reassuring spirits of our animal friends.

Dalmatian Jasper has long been seen as a “stone of service,” helping the wearing to think of others. It accomplishes this by clarifying and purifying the aura and other dysfunctional energies. The black Tourmaline inclusions can help to powerfully and quickly dissipate and transmutes harmful energy that would otherwise lead the wearer toward potentially unsafe situations or decisions. For these reasons, Dalmatian Jasper can help during times of mild depression or emotional ruts, opening our senses to the possibility of fun, humor, and surprise.


Dalmatian Jasper’s Primary Chakras are Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus.  Its Astrological sign is Gemini.
