Healing Crystals

I made one more stop to the rock store the other day. I was looking for a few small gifts, but deep down I know I needed something to distract my mind. I haven’t talked about Mom in detail lately, but the challenges and news keep compiling with every day. Every time I think not much worse can happen, it somehow does and while time is running out here and I’m still not packed, I can’t get to Germany fast enough. Nothing is easy or good when it comes to the news, and a trip to the rock store would offer a short time to take my mind off of things.

I walked slowly from display to display, in awe of all the beautiful rocks and crystals. I could spend hours there, and it’s always great and amazing to realize how much comfort a rock can bring. Strange, I know, but I like it. I picked out my gifts and decided to indulge in a little something for myself. Something, anything, and I had nothing specific in mind. I finally stopped at one display and looked at the various shapes of the same rock on display. I had no clue what it was called and what purpose it had, I just felt drawn to it and couldn’t recall ever seeing it before. I picked a few pieces, handling them, until I had the right rock that felt perfect within my hand.

Later at home, I unpacked my just bought treasures and pulled the fact sheet for the rock I had purchased for myself. I learned that the rock/crystal was called Celestite and the more I read, the more I found myself in awe. Talk about synchronicities and timing. I had no clue what rock it was and yet the discovery of such and the meaning of it couldn’t have come at any better time. It was exactly what I needed, as I felt a calm from holding it before I read the description. There was a energy about it as if something had wrapped me in a comforting blanket, telling me that everything would be ok. It’s hard to explain, but again I believe it was an essential piece of the puzzle and what I needed to find to give me the strengths to proceed.

Celestite is said to be an angelic stone. It can connect you to all aspects of the angelic realm, and to angels themselves. It is said that Celestite was given powers by angels to raise consciousness, and to bring guidance from the angels. Emotionally, Celestite is excellent for emotional protection and to end worry, fear, and anxiety. In this way it decreases negativity. Celestite is a great tool for meditation, as it helps focus on that than of this world and block out distracting “noise”. Celestite purifies the aura, and perfects the chakras. It is a stone that brings balance, especially to thought processes and communication. Psychically, Celestite is an excellent tool for astral travel. In the physical realm, Celestite is used for healing eye problems, mental disorders, cellular order, eliminating toxins, digestive problems. Celestite is associated primarily with the throat and crown chakras.

I have held the stone every day since as I allow it’s comfort to help guide me through this difficult time.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. I can only agree with you, Celestite is a wonderful gemstone to work with. Maybe the colors in your photo are teasing me a little, is your gemstone light blue? Really a beautiful tool for meditation and to use for calming down.

  2. Sorry to hear about mom. There was a time when I swore by crystals, I used to go camping and lay them all out on a blanket on the hood of my truck under the full moon to recharge and wash em in a natural spring. I have since drifted away but you just inspired me to run upstairs and search for celestite. I hope you are finding some reprieve and many prayers to mom. Be well

    1. What a wonderful thing to share Joseph. Thank you and I will take them on a hike, hopefully in the near future. That is an awesome idea. I found myself drawn to crystals a few years back for unknown reasons, but their presence is soothing, especially Celestite which I never knew before.
      Thank you for the prayers for Mom and me. Much appreciated my dear friend. Light and love for you and all the best.

  4. For a truly blissful experience, combine your celestite with selenite. You will be blown away, but keep a grounding crystal nearby. x

    1. That is wonderful advice and much needed as im still learning and have just started to use crystals for healing. Could you suggest a grounding crystal? Is there a specific one used for grounding? Thank you for your help and thank you kindly for the follow. Hugs


      1. It is always my pleasure to talk crystals with anyone. There are many grounding crystals, but you cannot go far wrong with either black tourmaline, black obsidian or hematite, none of which should be difficult to come by. Any of these will help, not only with using celestite and selenite, but also with your current situation. I am following your journey and asking Spirit to support you. If you could get a Tibetan Black quartz, though, that would be very good. My love and thoughts are with you x

      2. That is wonderful information and I truly appreciate you taking the time to educate and teach me. Thank you for your support and help. For following along and being there. It means everything during trying times like these. Xo


  5. Sorry, me again, just noticed you said you did not take your celestite to Germany? Ok, I hope you don’t think I’m a crazy person, but many people don’t know that you don’t need to physically have your crystal with you to connect with it or receive its support, this can be done across time and distance as you are working with universal energy. You can sit and meditate and ‘speak’ to your celestite (really, its the energy of energetic consciousness of the stone you are connecting with) and you can still receive all the soft and serene qualities from it through this contact. Try it, you may be surprised. x

    1. I don’t think that you are crazy for one moment and I do know that some things have to be felt through Intuition and don’t require a rational fact pact explanation. I feel things most people don’t and it can be a blessing or a curse, although I tend to see the lessons and reasons as to why. I didn’t know that you don’t actually have to have your stone with you, but I have thought about it and always felt a calm. It’s like connecting with people through this blog. Most I have never met and yet there is an energy and a feeling as if we have known each other forever. So I do understand and thank you again. Xo
