EmeraldNatural Emerald Stone

 This heart chakra based energy makes them known as a stone of successful and abundant love.

By helping you to let go of negativity, natural Emerald crystals will create positive actions and outcomes, and give you the strength to overcome any problems in your life.

Within all of nature, in the plants and the grass and the trees you can see this clear green color, and the energy of the green ray.

The energy of nature itself is embodied within stones that carry the green ray, like Emerald stones. These beautiful crystals emit the green ray, a vibration that will open the heart chakra and draw love into your life.

This lovely stone has many excellent qualities, which is why it was chosen to be a May birthstone and is commonly used in engagement rings, as it has a strong loving vibration.

They are stones of manifestation, and although today’s society seems to concentrate on the attributes of manifesting things, including money, this stone brings through much more.

If you desire to use this stone to help you to manifest loving attributes, good health and a peaceful, loving and harmonious existence, or to learn how to stay happy, you might like to have this stone in your life.

Of course it will manifest abundance as well as money, and you all know that of course money is necessary in life.

The green ray is embodied within these lovely stones, and it encourages you to have respect for all life and all of creation.

As you feel this respect within you, it may prompt you to live life in a more loving way.

You may find that your love and emotions begin to resonate with Divine Love.

This is the purest and highest form of love in existence, and you begin living your life from a spiritual, heart based perspective.

Feelings such as compassion, hope, loyalty, encouragement, reassurance, gentleness, kindness, goodness and of course unconditional love, are connected with these emotions, and with all the blessings that are in your life.

 I love emerald gemstones and wear one in my engagement ring every day, but for their metaphysical attributes to benefit you don’t need an expensive stone.

All Emerald stones, including rough or natural pieces like the ones shown here, emit this energy and have an effect on the emotions that are within you.

It will still give you the powerful metaphysical properties that are embodied in this stone but at a lower cost.

His taper finger trembled, and his arms were very thin;

Two round eyes and hollow, that stared but did not see;

And sprawling feet that never walked, had this most ancient tree.

Magical Gardening Around the World

Around the world, people tend to garden in different ways. Someone living on a large family farm plants their crops differently than someone on a half-acre lot in the suburbs. A resident of a big city in an advanced nation will grow things in a different fashion than a family living in an impoverished, third world country. While one person might use a large tractor and motorized equipment, another may use a simple shovel.

Still another might only use a pointed stick to make a hole in the ground. Since time began, the human race has managed to find ways to make things grow where before there was nothing.

In the early spring, many of us who follow earth-based spiritual paths begin planning our gardens for the coming season. The very act of planting, of beginning new life from seed, is a ritual and a magical act in itself. To cultivate something in the black soil, see it sprout and then bloom, is to watch a magical working unfold before our very eyes. The plant cycle is intrinsically tied to so many earth-based belief systems that it should come as no surprise that the magic of the garden is one well worth looking into.

Let’s look at some of the folklore and traditions that surround gardening and planting magic.
