thought for the day;

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.  Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them.  And the point is, to live everything.  Live the questions now.  Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.”  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Quartz Crystal

Quartz Crystal – It has been used extensively by ancient cultures around the world as a universal stone for meditation, spiritual development, healing, and communicating  with spirits.

Many North American Tribes have been using crystals as healing and spiritual tools for thousands of years. The Hopi believed specific crystals were imbued with the powers to divine the cause of illness, and the cherokee used crystals to portend the future.

“The quartz crystal is considered the strongest power object of all among such widely separated peoples as the Jivaro in South America and the tribes of Australia. Peoples as distant from one another as the aborigines of eastern Australia and the Yuman-speakers of southern California and adjacent Baja California consider the quartz crystal “living,” or a “living rock.” The widespread employment of quartz crystals in shamanism spans thousands of years. In California, for example, quartz crystals have been found in archaeological sites and prehistoric burials dating as far back as 8,000 years.”
