Crystals carry a lot of power. These earthen tokens of sacred geometry are said to hold the energies and secrets or the universe, and can also be charged, like any talisman, to hold the intention of the practitioner or wearer. These sparkling gem treasures are gifts to us from the Earth and can be used in a plethora of ways, and since the collective world is experiencing a vibrational and energetic shift due to quarantine and the Covid-19 pandemic, many are searching for new ways to ground and center themselves while dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial upheaval that comes with this crisis. Below are three short crystal meditations you can practice at home. If you are in need of crystals, please visit our shop here to find ones that call to you!
Crystal Clarity for Divination, Guidance, and Insight
Did you know that you can gaze into ANY crystal for insight? Scrying is a technique used to visually seek answers and clues to the questions we have via gazing into objects like fire, water, smoke, and crystals. It can be done in a myriad of ways (more on that here), but for now here is a scrying ritual that can be practiced by anyone, any time.
Simple Time and Perception Ritual:
Nature carries its own design, and while humans are animals, we also carry a creative consciousness that seeks to find new lines, new shapes, and new contrasts. We as humans use these concepts of line, shape, and contrast to organize our realities and perceptions to better understand our world. Did you know that every time we experience something new, our experience of time slows down? This is because Time is also a design (aka an illusion) used to understand our place in the universe, and through real experiences more of our brain’s energy is needed to process new information.
As Magicians we practice to master ALL of the illusions of the world in order to harness them for our desired outcome. Therefore, Time is a great illusion or sensory perception, and can be played with to our advantage.
Channeling Love and Understanding for the Self and Community
If you find yourself experiencing depression, frustration, anger, or mental blockages, focussing on the integration of love and understanding into your perspective may help overcome any day- to- day negativity that many feel so overwhelmed by.

The fierce and powerful Freyja was the Norse goddess of many dueling aspects! While she was the goddess of love, sexuality, fertility and beauty, she was also a warrior goddess of death, strength, lust, and war itself. Freyja is also viewed as the Goddess of magick, because she was believed to be magick itself!! She was a force of untamed nature and desires. If there was something that Freya wanted, she was above no moral standard to obtain her desires. One of Freya’s most notable correspondences is a
