Morado/Purple Opal, Healing with Crystals and Gemstones

Purple Opal PixMorado/Purple Opal is a delicate stone that promotes peacefulness, calm and emanates a sense of tranquility. It stimulates spiritual growth, connecting with the Divine, through intuition and clairsentience (a sense of knowing). Purple Opal or the Violet Ray Opal encourages living in the now, expressing your true inner self confidently and easily. Realigning your sense of direction in life, it helps in releasing unwanted memories.  It is always important to remember that our memories are just that, memories. You are not your memories. Let them go and choose to focus on creating the life you wish to live each day.   Third Eye/Crown Chakras   Mexico



Aquamarine, Healing with Crystals & Gemstones

Aquamarine Necklace

As a Master Healer, my experience has shown that wearing the crystal Aquamarine has a gentle and calming effect on the wearer. Its energy often sings out to me to stop and touch it, caress it, hold it. It makes me feel safe, like home should.

Aquamarine resembles the ocean, comforting the soul and enabling one to just stop, quiet oneself and breathe. It creates a sense of peacefulness and compassion, bringing you in contact with your inner and higher voice, awakening your spiritual awareness. Its colour often encompasses small brilliant diamond-like sparkles, like water does when the sun is high.

Whether you are experiencing an unexpected change in careers, moving your hearth and home across town or across the country, or a dramatic change in a personal relationship, Aquamarine will help to quiet and comfort you, with its cool energy.

Grief or a sense of loss, regardless of its origin, is eased by this beautiful sparkling aqua stone, enabling you to feel more grounded and in control. I believe it promotes courage.  Perfect for those transitioning in life.

Quieting the mind, this crystal is excellent for centering and meditation. Aquamarine is effective on all Chakras or energy centers of the body, especially the Throat Chakra, where we express who we really are.  It encourages you to speak freely of your feelings while at the same time helps you to identify and understand exactly what it is you are feeling.

When worn around the neck, the energy or vibration of the Aquamarine helps reduce the swelling of glands, sore throats, chronic tonsillitis, thyroid and vocal cord conditions. It also helps to improve eyesight. If worn lower around the Heart/Third Chakra, it helps balance the digestive system as well as the liver, spleen and kidneys.

How does it work? The delicate energy of the Aquamarine crystals, enable them to clear the negativity of stress and anxiety, while balancing your body on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Aquamarine also heals and protects the aura.

This mermaid’s jewel is believed to encompass the energy of the sea and was first thought to come from Greece where it was dedicated to the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite. It is said to bring pure love, eternal youth and good fortune. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.

What is Crystal Therapy?



Crystal Therapy (or Crystal Healing) is an alternative healing modality where crystals are placed on or around the body and the surrounding room. This can heal, strengthen and balance energy within us, rejuvenating the whole being and promoting positivity.

Crystals have the ability to absorb energy, enabling them to clear the negativity of stress and anxiety, while balancing your body on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Each Crystal, semi-precious or precious gemstone, emits a distinct healing and energy vibration.

This vibrational energy has the power to heal at the very source of an illness before symptoms manifest in the physical body. Symptoms labeled as illness, may be signs of imbalance, blocked creativity or emotional trauma.

While you remain fully clothed, crystals are placed either singularly or in combination upon the body during the hour treatment.

Crystal energy affects all levels of your being and the space in which you live and work. The energy helps to balance your Chakras (Energy centers) and auras to promote healing, but also provides protection, mental clarity, enhances love or eases transitions and improves your self-esteem, which attracts success and prosperity.

A large assortment of energizing crystals and gemstones for your home, office, car, personal space or altar and the knowledge to help you choose which is best for your individual situation, is available at Master Healer in Cobourg, (Northumberland Country), Ontario.

Each Crystal has been hand selected for its energy and healing properties by Master Healer, Mary McCandless. Questions are always welcomed.

KYANITE Healing Properties

KYANITE Healing Properties

As a Master Healer, my experience has proven Kyanite to be perfect for promoting the ability to express oneself, speaking confidently, easily and effortlessly. This highly vibrational stone is ideal for wearing around your neck, as Kyanite has a definite calming influence and helps with the ability to focus.

Kyanite encourages positive energy as well, making it an excellent choice for people who are uncomfortable being in social settings or find themselves speaking in front of small or large groups; public speakers, teachers, businessmen, actors, etc.

Perfect for students doing homework or preparing for exams, Kyanite can be worn or simply placed on the desk to enhance concentration. When it comes time for taking an exam, again wear Kyanite around your neck or place it on the desk to achieve the desired effect.

With the stress levels that exist in day to day living, Kyanite is excellent for people who have so much on their minds, that the little things begin to feel impossible; finding your keys, your glasses, your car, etc. Women in the throes of menopause will find it to be especially helpful.

Kyanite’s restorative, healing energy helps the development of new ideas and thoughts, encouraging a feeling of lightness of mind and body. For those who feel “stuck” or unable to move forward, Kyanite is a perfect travelling companion in your life journey.

Kyanite is also excellent for attunement and meditation. Quieting your mind, it aligns with all the Chakras, removes energy blockages, helping you connect to your Guides, facilitating spiritual growth.

Kyanite has an amazing ability to cut off negativity. Archangel Michael’s sword is thought to be made of blue Kyanite. Margherita Crystal Lotus recommends to “hold a Kyanite blade in your hand and slowly remove any energetic cords and hooks stopping you from being in a relaxed and calm state’.

Kyanite comes in many colours, blue, green and a brownish black and although Kyanite is most recognized for opening the Throat Chakra, it is also helpful in the treatment of hearing disorders, eye problems and problems with sense of smell.

Kyanite never needs to be recharged.

Kyanite resonates with the number 4 and the Zodiac signs of Aries, Taurus and Libra. However, it can be worn or carried by anyone interested in its unique healing properties.


BALTIC AMBER Healing Properties


The Healing Power of BALTIC AMBER ~ Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Asthma, Allergies

Baltic Amber has a powerful healing vibration which absorbs negative energies, purifying the aura. It carries with it the wisdom of the ages, as well as a few bugs, seeds and debris trapped within it from another time.

Although not a crystal, this organic, fossilized resin from ancient pine forests is excellent for those suffering from seasonal allergies or asthma.

It is also most effective in the treatment of allergic respiratory problems (especially those induced by the love of your furry friends.)

Wearing a Baltic Amber necklace will significantly lessen the suffering when visiting a home where little kitty faces reside. However, if your love remains with man’s best friend, it is good to remember that it has proven helpful to dogs suffering from kennel cough.

As a Master Healer, my experience has shown that wearing Baltic Amber around the neck helps reduce the swelling of glands, sore throats, chronic tonsillitis, thyroid and vocal cord conditions. It is particularly effective for people that use their voices to make a living, public speakers, actors, singers, public speakers, etc.

The healing properties of Baltic Amber include reducing inflammation, making it a natural remedy in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism. It is also recommended highly for teething babies. If used for this purpose, MAKE SURE the necklace is made properly with a knot between each bead, in case of breakage.

In the fall and winter months, Baltic Amber brings us the warmth of the sun, connecting us with the light and enhancing our health. It’s solar energies will help those who become depressed during winter months, offering protection to those with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or other depression based on light deprivation.

Baltic Amber’s warm and comforting energy is also helpful in the treatment of depression and anxiety. It can help one develop a sense of self-acceptance and self-worth. Baltic Amber is often carried to help with addictions.

When recovering from illness, injury or surgery, Baltic Amber helps us connect to our own inner strength, strengthening the immune system and encouraging the body’s own natural healing powers. As well, it readily speeds our metabolism, stimulating and cleansing the digestive system, liver, gallbladder, kidney, spleen and intestinal tract.

Author and crystals expert, Judy Hall, recommends “holding a piece of Amber above your head and imagining it slowly melting, pouring a protective coating around your aura to seal it.”

Amber warms to the touch. So when it begins to look dull or feels cool to the touch, simply cleanse it under lukewarm running water to release the negative energy. Some choose to place it in the sun to enhance its inner power. However, leaving it in the sun for a long period of time may cause it to become brittle and break.


Healing with Crystals & Gemstone, Moonstone

As a Master Healer, my experience has shown that Moonstone has a positive effect on just about every symptom related to menopause. It has long been recognized and honoured as a healing crystal that truly resonates with the female energy and moderates the stresses of women throughout their many cycles of life from puberty through menopause.

Named for its resemblance to the moon, Moonstone is referred to as the feminine stone. However, don’t let the beauty of this iridescent Moonstone fool you. The energy of this feminine stone carries a lot of clout. It has the ability to do almost everything but scrub the floor and take out the garbage.

Moonstone is excellent for menopausal symptoms as it helps to balance the hormones, calming the roller coaster ride of your emotions, easing stress and anxiety. It also helps you to feel better about yourself from the inside out and who doesn’t need that?

How does it work Crystals have the ability to absorb energy, enabling them to clear the negativity of stress and anxiety, while balancing your body on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. The energy or vibration of the Moonstone helps to stimulate the endocrine system of the body.

The energy of this crystal Moonstone is exceptional as it resonates with all seven Chakras (the wheels of spinning energy inside the body) to promote healing.

Moonstone also helps to improve intuition, creativity and the ability to communicate. Moonstone crystals help you through life transitions and allow you to feel more grounded and in control. This collectively leads to an increase in your personal power. The history of Moonstone indicates that it is said to attract and enhance love relationships.

And yes, men can also benefit from Moonstone as it will help to balance the yin and yang or the male and female energies of the body.

To benefit from the healing energy of Moonstone, I believe it to be most effective to wear this crystal around your neck, close to your heart. As with most crystals, we want it to come directly in contact with the skin. If you choose to wear a Moonstone pendant, make sure the back of the jewelry is open to your body. You can also add it to your personal talisman or tuck a piece into your bra.

Remember, wearing crystals is a very personal thing. Its not about how it looks to someone else, it’s about how it feels to you. I wear my personal talisman under my clothes every day and notice a significant difference when I don’t wear it.
