( Hello Friends. Welcome!)

~The Earth is our Mother, Care for her; honor all your relations.
Open your heart and soul the the Great Spirit.
All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect.
Take from the earth what is needed and nothing more.
Do what needs to be done for the good in others.
Give constant thanks to the Great Spirit for each new day.
Speak the truth, but only of the good in others.
Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun.
Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks.~

The Four Seasons Tree

This is my newest piece and I think it turned out quite well.
Each stone represents a season as well as having their own healing qualities.

Winter is a pretty Moonstone. I've covered this stone extensively in a previous post but moonstone carries lunar energy and help us of a sensitive nature to balance emotional upsets and is said, when worn as a amulet or pendant to bring good emotions to the wearer. It also eases stress and anxiousness.

Spring is a beautiful mix of Aguamarine and Blue lace agate which is actually a powder soft lavender color. I chose these colors to represent this season because they remind me of those wonderful spring flowers!
Aquamarine improves one’s overall sense of well-being. Some suggest that aquamarine is used to treat people for whom procrastination is an affliction. It is believed that one who wears aquamarine has a better ability to think clearly and make quick decisions. It also increases one’s access to courage.

I chose a lovely Aventurine to represent summer with all of it's green and alive splendor.
Aventurine has the ability to ground an individual emotionally, allowing for thought that is free of fear, troubled emotions, indecisiveness, and anxiety. This clarity of mind and self confidence that result from wearing this powerful stone energize, inspire, motivate and enhances your ability to relate to others on an emotional level.

For Autumn I chose a stunning, genuine Baltic Amber.
Amber is a powerful healer. At a physical level, it fills the body with vitality and has the power to draw disease out of the body. By absorbing pain and negative energy, the gemstone allows the body to rebalance and heal itself. It alleviates stress.
Baltic amber is warm to touch. This gem possesses electrostatic properties, and continues to be utilized for healing purposes. The unusually great power this gem is embedded in its ability to produce negative ions that affects man by easing pain, activating the healing process, and providing protection from harmful radiation.

Many blessings to you all!
