In American culture we tend to celebrate love during the month of February with cards, flowers and other nonsense. The true meaning of love cannot be found within material things and most would agree there is no other real feeling like love, nor is there one word that can truly describe the way it makes us feel. I think that in its purest form the emotions and feeling we experience are a reminder of who we are at a soul level. The excitement, joy, and happiness supersedes everything around us and all fear washes away.
Love is many things. It’s not only an emotion we give and share with others, but it’s also what we give and share with ourselves. In a time where society is hectic, scattered, enraged, and overwhelmed, we need to be kindest to ourselves. And this is something that many are struggling with!
In regards to Feng Shui it was expressed by Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun that many people in this age of technology are starting to acquire a phenomenon called strange Chi. My Feng Shui mentor Katherine has spoken many times of Professor’s concern and what is happening to our culture is that we are becoming disconnected and apathetic towards those around us. Essentially not connecting through love.
Now more than ever we need to look beyond the surface and reconnect with what matters most, our universal connection with one another. At the end of the day there is one thread that holds it all together, and that is the thread of love. Whether it be self-love, compassionate love, unconditional love, patient love, new love, young love, or rekindled love, is all boils down to universal love for one another.

I have all seven of these stones in my collection and use many of them in my meditation practices, however, if you are completely new to crystals and their healing properties it can be easy to get overwhelmed. The first step is not to get intimidated. When selecting a new stone choose the one that calls to you. Pay attention to how you feel and what draws you in. Many years ago when I first started studying crystals and their healing properties I would choose a stone simply because it was pretty, but I quickly learned that our subtle energies are in tuned to what we need most, and I was choosing based on what my body needed.
Nowadays I choose stones for all sorts of various reasons, but many are used in my Feng Shui practice for very specific cures for my clients. The best is to build a collection of stones that you can turn into an altar. Having an altar connects you more closely to the divine and grounds your spirit, something many souls on earth desperately need today!
