Published on the eve of the full moon… called Worm Moon, where you might experience the most intense angry emotions!

How to be angry correctly and why Kyanite jewelry is helping us realize causes for aggression.

Learn how to create healing jewelry for dealing with anger.

The "Love Myself" Crystal Talisman Mandala with Kyanite.

What in the world I am I talking about being angry correctly? No kidding I tell you it is possible to use anger correctly. Let me also tell you more about the powerful usage of Kyanite. We can use blue Kyanite to release negative emotions. If you read the sequel to The Golden Compass: The Subtle Knife – a magical knife is described that can cut open up portals between dimensions. Reading this book I thought that there were some similarities between that knife and a naturally occurring mineral: Kyanite.

Now you may think you are not angry at all, but anger is part of our skill set in life!

The main point is HOW we use this skill. And when we detect hot emotions, we can 1) respond wisely or 2) react! This will result in two dramatically different outcomes. To explain further:

Living beings are functioning on various levels:

Such as breathing, thinking and having emotions. Emotions are detected and generated though the sense of feeling – it not a physical thing, because it is our chakras that handle that. They act like radar to detect energetic vibrations in our surrounding, but also like power plants that generate energy:

  • Example: All of a sudden you feel uneasy at your desk. The next moment your co-worker arrives with a frown on his face… You did not see him coming, but you felt something. This is what I mean: you were able to detect a feeling before you actually saw the person coming. And after such interaction you might still feel uneasy, which means that you lost energy to the other person.

Emotions are sticky like molasses, and if we don’t deal with them, we might end up in a dead end loop… such as depression. It might help to know that emotions are generated by the chakras dependent on what we believe!

  • Example: If you believe your romantic partner should do certain things for you and fails, you might get disappointed or angry.

Now if you’d like to try the power of Kyanite, you could use a Kyanite blade to cut cords and clearing your aura. Our crystal healing students are taught to do this. Also a Crystal Talisman with Kyanite can reflect our desire to resolve inner conflicts by letting us begin to feel our anger.

  • Experience: One Healing Jewelry participant reported that as soon as she put on her Crystal Mandala Talisman, she felt angry immediately. Reasons for this may be that Kyanite helps us uncover our true self. But when our psyche holds detrimental ideas about ourselves that is not getting us to our goals, it is natural to be angry. And being angry is part of your awakening-process! Kyanite basically reflected her inner anger!

Using our anger correctly means to consciously use the energy of anger to purify our emotions rather that being like a pressure cooker exploding now and then. That hurts other people. Using an emotion correctly is like using speed to drive up an icy driveway: we take stance and press the gas pedal down deliberately and aim to arrive safely. You can apply anger in the same way. State your boundary with emphasis to communicate effectively. And your anger is dissolved…

5 Crystal Healing Tools to use with Kyanite when we realize that anger can be an aid in our awakening:

  1. Crystal Healing Wand – to reflect & remove aggressive or hostile energies
  2. Crystal Talisman – support our personal intentions to deal with anger
  3. Crystal Layout – to facilitate inner shifts in a healing session and release causes for anger
  4. Crystal Grid – to set out boundaries to negativity and aggression
  5. GemCodes – for imprinting your personal intentions regarding negativity and anger

If you have an issue with anger: share it, or try some of the above 5 healing techniques. Blessings,

Margherita Crystal Lotus writer for

Love to hear more from you!

Margherita, community builder on Facebook Chakra University and, author of the Crystal Lotus Handbook – An Essential Guide to Crystals and how to deal with emotions like anger.

Dear friends, I am happy to introduce a dear friend: Mary and her testimonial from the Create Healing Jewelry Course Margherita

“I have long been fascinated by sparkly things and when I discovered that these same jewels that make my eyes sing and my breath catch, also had distinct healing energy vibration, I definitely needed to know more.

During the past ten years, I have incorporated crystals into my life and my natural healing practice with the most outstanding results.

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a two day workshop with Margherita, Gem-Weave Artist and Crystal Healing Arts Facilitator, who I have long admired for her intuitive work with healing crystals.

Although it was hosted in Hamilton, the travel seemed a small price to pay for learning more about wiring unusual shapes and sizes of stones and at the same time, work with like-minded people exchanging ideas and experiences with crystal energy.

Margherita welcomed me as if I were long lost family (we had only a brief exchange a few months ago) and ushered me into the studio to meet the other six members of the clan. It was an amazing art studio filled with colour and light next to the water.  We were an interesting mix.

We were provided with a package of materials; a tray, which was an attempt to corral our bits, pieces of beads and crystals, a small book and an informative brochure from which we were introduced to Margherita’s own approach to crystals and their healing properties.

Our first assignment was to write in the little book provided, “I give up that it has to be perfect.”  Hmmm.  She certainly knew where we lived.

We were an enthusiastic bunch, as was Margherita.  We chose from a basket of rock crystals that spoke to us and went right to work.  Snip, snip, twist, twist.  It was all so exciting.  She kept a careful eye on our interpretations of her explanations and within a short period of time, we each had completed our first piece.  Not surprisingly, no two were alike.  Each piece of creativity was applauded and her encouragement was appreciated.

As we continued to accessorize our rock crystal with other small chips, bit and pieces, Margherita talked about some of the different properties of the stones and how they related.  Rocks indicating release of “emotional hooks”, “emotional eating”, and “fear of finances” caught my ear, as we continued to learn another way to encapsulate a willing crystal and attach it to a knot.

Our workshop project was to create a healing mandala or talisman which could be worn around the neck, as prayer guide to represent our journey into the future and what we wished to achieve. As we began to learn what a mandala is or what it represents, our real purpose for being there became clear.  It was so much more than we anticipated.

At 1:30 we stopped what we were doing as it was the Equinox of 2010 and in celebration of this event, Margherita began to play her ceremonial drum and sing.  It was a bit jarring for me, but in the spirit of the moment, I tried to embrace the experience.

After some discussion, Margherita began to introduce us to her “Heart Chart” and how, where we are now in our lives and what we think, relates to every chakra or energy center of the body.  Again, it was a bit overwhelming to sit and dig deep, trying to discover how to create a positive out of what seemed so negative, but at the same time enlightening.

With each Chakra, Margherita taught us how to discern the areas of our lives that could be enhanced with a seemingly simple process.

Before we knew it, we began once again to attempt to learn another method of wrapping a crystal.  While still struggling to grasp the Heart Chart information that had just been shared with us, each of us had a different reaction.  The young women next to me easily grasp the technique of creating a basket for her crystal, while across the table a woman sat weeping unable to move beyond the first step.  Another woman left the table enveloped by the energy of a sacred tableau she was creating.  I just sat, looking at the wire, not even able to know where to begin.  I wasn’t distressed, just aware that there was so much more involved than met the eye.  I would wait until another time to wrap my mind around this.

With warmth and grace, Margherita, moved around the room, comforting and assisting where she could.  It was the end of day one.  We were sent away with homework which would help us begin to create our own Heart Chart.  I was exhausted.

Day two found me full of questions.  We were to begin to create our own mandala or talisman and obviously wanted to make the most of the day.  The Heart Chart loomed large our minds.   Few felt confident to ask the questions that would leave them exposed and vulnerable.

At the head of the table, Margherita propped up her Heart Chart diagram and asked how our homework had gone and if we had any questions.  The day before, she had said something regarding “emotional hooks” which had resonated with me during the night and was foremost in my mind.  Could this be what I was feeling?

I heard my voice asking her how to deal with this situation.  Yipes!  I would be found out.  Yes, there was someone in my life that I felt had a negative attachment to me which was having a major impact on my self-esteem.  Was there something I could do, a crystal that would help protect me while dissolving or removing this feeling of negativity that I seemed to be carrying?

Margherita asked that I visualize the cord that connected me to the other individual.   Raising her arms above her head, she asked me to visualize an angel in her place with the largest, most beautiful wings imaginable, holding a sword.  Upon my command, the sword would be lowered, cutting the connection.  I held my breath and quietly said, “Now.”

Her blood curdling scream pierced the air, as the sword dramatically sliced through the invisible cord.  The room was deafening quiet.  It was not like something I had ever experienced before.  And yes, it may sound crazy, but I could actually feel a difference.

Margherita then went on to remind us that we always had total control over this sort of thing and that, yes indeed, there were crystals that emanated the kind of energy that were helpful for protection as well.

From there our questions became much more concrete. What was the best stone to use?   What if we made a mistake and chose the wrong crystal?  Why is my talisman looking so different from the others?  Did I do something wrong?  My mind jumped back to beginning of our class.  “I give up that it has to be perfect.”

As we began our quest for creating a meaningful accessory to our lives, colourful shapes and sizes of crystals filled our trays with energy, each with their own sparkling personality.  We all struggled to find the stones that would best speak to us of our journey into the future.  Again, like the women present, no two were alike.

We began to recognize a bond had developed between us, as we supported each other in this endeavour; offering suggestions or sharing of stones and encouragement.

At the end of the day, we gathered by the water recognizing that this had indeed been a spiritual journey which we had only just begun.  A peaceful feeling seemed to resonate amongst us as we made a gesture of sacrifice with things that had come from Johanna’s sacred table.  We offered our thanks to the Universe for the safe place in which to learn and be ourselves, the time together, and of course, for Margherita.”

Usually I have not had the pleasure to experience gifted participants like Mary who is a wonderful healer. Thank you Mary! (See Mary’s website on my blogroll.)

This is a message from my friend Julei who created an amazing Gem Elixir, see details at the end of the message. It is also an invitation to a labyrinth walk on May 3, 2011 in Toronto. Join if you like!

Crystal Mandala Layout for Gem Elixir

Welcome back! The earth seems to finally leaving winter snows behind so we can exit our hibernations. Hope this finds each of you surrounded by Love and Light.

First, Isabel and I want to express what a pleasure it has been for the past few years to share these gatherings with all of you. The accumulated teachings revealed and energized by the spectrum of understandings and histories each of you brings have been inspiring to say the least. We are grateful to all beings who participated. Each event has been perfect in its actualization. Way back when Isabel and I started this journey together, it was because it “felt right” to do so. That feeling has only been deepened and reinforced since. We enjoy tremendous satisfaction and nourishment from being surrounded by such an incredible network of conscious, awakened beings. Thank you all!

Across the world we are seeing the “communal heart” and “global consciousness” communicating the many ways to overcome ignorance, greed and ego’s illusions of separateness. The mediums are now the internet – YouTube – global cellular networks — GPS locators. These are the “Aquarian age technologies” predicted long ago to enable a “instantaneous, psychic connectivity of humans”. Those who brought that message may not have understood exactly what form that would take, but here it is! So what are we becoming aware of with these technologies? It is easy to be overwhelmed trying to ‘make sense’ of it all. Please keep your focus on revealing, naming and transforming all corrupted uses of power, resources and living energy. There is a lot of “spring cleaning” and redistribution of resources to provide for and uplift as many sentient beings as possible. As always, all “work” begins first and foremost with what we are each willing to do and be accountable for on a personal scale. What does that look like for you?

2011’s theme is “Nourishing the Soul Garden: Planting the New Paradigm”

2011 began with a very different quality of energy and message. In its roots is the reminder that we are always immersed in the richness of our innate wisdoms and at every moment have the potential to reawaken that. How does your garden grow? What deeply nourishes you and opens you to embodying the divine and sacred as you experience that?

This year can be:
~ a time for reflection and gratitude on what has been achieved on every level of your soul.
~ a time to deeply recognize that which is ending/closing/leaving/completing and finding ways to embody that in serenity and peace.
~ a time to acknowledge how you are choosing to take your power as a conscious spiritual being and making that so in every moment.
~ a time to walk beside others to honour their unique paths in unity, gratitude and respect for all the ways there are to be.
~ a time to explore spring cleansing at all the levels you are working to prepare your personal “garden” for the next growing season.

The essence of the 2011 message is that you already have access to the optimal tools, experiences, teachings and resources to evolve in alignment with your soul purpose
.   Yes! Really!  No need to rush around searching for something different, the right teacher, the right paradigm, the right place. Review what you have already gathered in your tool kit and relax — those tools work. In fact, all tools work if you let them. That is why there is so many paths up that mountain. Feelings of restlessness and urgency now may be about taking the work to the next level. Give yourself the gift of taking it deeper HERE and NOW.

Through the gate of the May New Moon, in tune with the uprising energies of spring and the awakening rejuvenation of our earthly bodies, we invite all those who want to co-create this gathering to walk the High Park Labyrinth on May 3, 2011. We will be onsite between 5:30 and 7:30 pm – come walk amongst the gift and grace of common purpose. This is a “non-denominational” gathering so bring your own tools, your own nourishment and gather as equals.

In honouring the new energies, please choose to participate or not based on the following guidelines. We each take responsibility to:  
~*~ gather when and where the converging energies promote healing and balance

      ~*~ create a safe, respectful and compassionate container for the diversity of participants and belief systems
~*~ witness without judgment the experiences of yourself and others
~*~ honour circle work and each participant’s choice to reflect, share or be in silence in their turn
~*~ leave any place we gather at in more harmony and beauty than when we arrived
~*~ co-create for the highest benefit of all sentient beings

As always, we recognize there are many ways to celebrate and walk the spiritual path. Honour what calls you. Find your bliss and move it, move it!

Peace to all,
Julei and Isabel

I am particularly excited about the message that came through this past winter’s solar and lunar eclipses and planetary alignments to the galactic center. I am grateful to all who helped manifest the message as a Crystal Mandala with its corresponding Gem Elixir. Photos of that two month process will be posted soon — it has been percolating pending completion of the winter snows! The potentized elixir, guidelines for its use and a copy of the crystal message statement will be available for $20 from Julei. Please email me at if you are interested.


I look forward to promoting and supporting the diversity of events many of you continue to generate. Please let me know what you are doing and whether you wanted the word spread.


~ Please forward and share this email with respect for us all ~
~ If you received this and do not resonate, simply delete and release the energy back to the universe ~


Create Healing Jewelry Courses


How do we affect our lives to the better? There are lots of methods we can use from meditation to medication and applying various therapies. We may also attempt to remedy our condition with a conscious choice of intention, and take charge of our life with appropriate action to create a happier life for ourselves. I feel this option is most ideal. We reap the immediate benefits by feeling accomplished, healed or more empowered by our own effort.

Crystal Healing Talisman, using "Birds Nest" Gem Weave.

One way to address the myriads of problems we may have is to create a Crystal Healing Talisman, which is an object personally created using gemstones. Depending on which condition or situation you seek to address, you may choose one or more stones, gems or crystals and bind them together with string or wire. As most are not professional jewelers, I propose a method that anyone can use without hi-tech tools. It is called Gem Weaving. Regular wire wraps may also work but in the method I have taught we “weave our intention” as our work progress toward the finished project. The object then becomes  a true Crystal Healing Talisman. Without healing intention we have only some stone wrapped with wire.

Personal Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman.

A Crystal Healing Talisman can include a simple pendant worn at the heart, or an entire necklace called Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman, both are used similarly with the difference of the focused personal intention. Crystal Healing Talismans as a single pendent is mostly used to address a specific problem or situation in contrast to the Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman, which is used to embrace a larger goal or vision for ourselves. The Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman is best created by the person themselves as it is a very empowering process.

An excellent example of a specialized crystal healing talisman is what I offer as a therapeutic session for clients: the “Crystal Color Life Spiral Talisman” that clients use for three months or more to gain regain balance. Learn more about how to receive a “Crystal Color Life Spiral” or create Crystal Healing Jewelry by visiting the their pages on this site. You can also read more about Crystal Healing Talismans in the Crystal Lotus Handbook.


Finally it is here!
