Did you know that you already use crystals in ordinary ways? They are found in watches, microchips for your computer and lasers. And minerals are the basis for many medicines.
Crystals are known by many names, crystals, stones, gemstones, minerals, and rocks. Crystals generate, conserve, radiate, and amplify energy. Energy amplification is why we feel so good when we hold a crystal that is in tune with our own vibration. (Yes, there are scientific differences with the formation of a crystal and a stone, but we are going to refer to them all as crystals in this post for ease of understanding).
Crystals are not a new age fad. Texts and graves show the Babylonians and Egyptians used crystals for specific healing, protective, and manifestation properties. They are a gift from Mother Earth whose wisdom has been forming for millions of years.

There are a lot of new users of essential oils thanks to the rising number of multi-level marketing representatives. These new users are quick to sign up with these representatives offering classes where they tout how they use essential oils, discuss how great they are and how much “greener” their life is because of them. After all, who doesn’t want to live a lifestyle where you have less chemicals in your home and are able to eliminate pain relievers and other medications?

Empaths are emotional sponges who absorb other peoples’ stress into their own bodies. As an empath myself I know how exhausting this can be. Here are some basic strategies for empaths and all people battling with low energy from my new book, The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People. I practice these strategies in my life and teach them to my patients and workshop participants— and you can turn to these techniques if you’re absorbing the stress or symptoms of others and you need ways to release them. Experiment. See which ones work best for you. Use them in situations where you are feeling ill or upset and suspect you’re taking on someone else’s physical or emotional distress.
Every year a color is chosen by Pantone to represent the feeling of the year. This color sets the tone for the year to come for designers and creators. I have found that the chosen color of the year can also influence us in a powerful way. This year it's a gorgeous color of coral, officially called "PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral". Below I have listed a few quotes I found on the color Living Coral that I feel can help us integrate the color and use it in a more intentional way.

"I see coral as the color of compassion and higher awareness. Coral encourages us to think outside of the box, to look beyond our own personal experiences for a greater sense of perspective. Possessing a blend of orange, red and pink, coral evokes a kind of emotional revitalization within us. Coral has a soft...
