methyst is a stone of major healing. It is one of the most effective crystals for healing people, plants, and animals. From naturally healing plants that will not grow to soothing animals that refuse to calm themselves, it counteracts negative energies in any location that feels hostile or chaotic. (For this reason, amethyst is an excellent stone for highly trafficked spaces, like an office or family room.)
I had ended my last blog with the question: What are your hands going towards these days? So, I will start there today myself. I have been continuing to create little mosaic pieces on my son’s broken Taekwondo boards.

Forgiveness is sometimes thought of as a nice thing to do for others, sort of like giving a birthday present or a Valentine’s Day card. Of course, it is a wonderful expression to offer to another human being, but the fact is that it will always be a largely superficial gesture unless based on self-forgiveness. In my life, I find that it is not something just nice to do; instead, it is as essential as breathing.
