Welcome to Judith's Crystal Cave Teachings, my virtual home.
Here is where I share my thoughts on spirituality, life, humor, Crystals, and various topics I hope people will find interesting. We are far more than we know. We all have magic within us, waiting to be tapped into. I want to support that awakening, that recognition of what we are: Eternal souls on a journey through space and time, here to evolve, learn, and grow. All that I've learned from the teachers in my life, the elders, the animals, the stones, the trees, the elements, the stars, and all that I am, is shared here, in this space. My training in Classical Chinese Medicine, ( and Taoism ), including the Stones, 5-Element theory, Essential Oils, and herbs, Astrology, and my insights as a Clairvoyant Empath are all shared here. With empathy, love, and my bizarre sense of humor, I am honored to share my perspectives on this Earth walk with you.
One of the great loves in my life has always been nature, especially what native people call "The Stone People". I have been working with, and teaching about Crystals and Minerals for most of my life. All of the indigenous cultures around the world describe the stones as the oldest living beings on the planet. The Taoists consider them to be the most powerful healing modality that there is. Part of the reason I started my website was to introduce these Master Healers to people unfamiliar with them, since most people have limited access to a Taoist Master or a native elder. Most books available today focus on either the metaphysical properties of stones, or the mineralogical make-up of the stones. I wanted to offer material that is ancient, from my decades of study, along with my direct experiences, dreams, and visions with the stones as an Alchemist, Clairvoyant Empath and Mystic.
My home is filled with a Shaman's tools, drums, rattles, feathers, art, Stones, Essential Oils, Herbs, Sage, Sweetgrass, tobacco for ceremony... All of these things combine together to create an energy that is healing for all who enter, and to challenge the trance-like state western culture creates in us, which inhibits and blocks us from achieving our true potential. This part of my website is designed to do that, to challenge that trance state, offering a different perspective on life that includes magic, and an opportunity to explore other dimensions and realities.
My actual home in real life is very unusual, a geodesic dome and subterranean home built into the side of a hill, with 35 tons of Calcite boulders that create the ceiling. A true Crystal Cave, unique and magical. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I wanted to have, and make available for my clients, an environment for people to experience the Earth as it truly is, from an Indigenous culture perspective: Powerful, nurturing, magical, and Sacred. I want to invite people to embark on a journey into the mystical, the supernatural, where all living things are connected as one heart. And I want to include laughter, because laughter brings us into the moment more quickly than anything except love. So expect some snippets of my life that hopefully will make you smile.
Come on a journey with me.
We’re headed to another Mineral Show this weekend, and I’m very excited about it. I’m picking up three huge Crystals, all over 100 lbs. Two are Smokey Quartz, one is a natural Citrine. All from Brazil, from 30 year old inventory. At the last show a few weeks ago I bought 4 huge natural Citrines, and I do mean huge. Three were 60 lbs, the largest was 101 lbs. That one lives with me now. I feel deeply honored to have been chosen to be it’s guardian. The heart connection between us was immediate, as was the recognition. So here it will stay. It’s hard to wait until Saturday to meet these new ones. The largest Smokey Quartz Point is 120 lbs, the other is 110 lbs, and an Elestial. The mines in Brazil that these came from are long since closed. I have often written about natural Citrine, and how powerful it is, but being in the presence of this Master Teacher is amazing. When this inventory runs out, that’s it, it’s gone. I currently have about 60 polished natural Citrine Points here, only ( only?) about 18 listed. Probably the largest inventory of natural Citrine in the U.S. I believe it is a part of my Spiritual calling to be a channel for them, to get them, and all of the Stone People, to their destiny. So, we’ll see who wants to come home with us, besides the huge ones. I will keep everyone posted.
We just returned from another amazing Gem and Mineral Show. I had some special items people were looking for, and am happy to say I found them. Along with those, I came home with another packed to the gills truck full of goodies. Over the next week I will be listing Ametrine Points from Brazil, ( we love Ametrine!), beautiful Lithium Phantom Quartz, Uruguayan Amethyst Druse Hearts, ( very dark purple), more natural Citrines, new Baltic Amber Pendants in Fine Sterling Silver, Rhodonite Pendants, a Baltic Amber and Sterling Cuff bracelet, new Star Rose Quartz Spheres, so, so much more. A large Quartz Point filled with rods of green Epidote. Wow. I bought more purple Stichtite from S. Africa, we all love that. So keep checking the New Arrivals pages. Time for some much needed rest. Good night, all.
The New Moon this month will be exceptionally powerful, given the number of planets involved. It will be exact on 10/4, Friday, at 8:34PM, Eastern Time. New Moons can usually be felt a day before, but in this case I believe we’ll be feeling this one from Tues. on. A New Moon is when the Sun and the Moon are in the same sign. It represents new beginnings, a time to set intentions. This month the Sun is in the Cardinal Air sign Libra, the Moon also in Libra. The Cardinal signs of the Zodiac are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Cardinal signs are the leaders, the initiators, the motivators. As the Sun and the Moon join up in Libra, the sign of justice, integrity, and Sacred Truth, they will both be in opposition to Uranus in Aries, Cardinal Fire, the radical Liberator. All three of those Planets will be forming a challenging aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, Cardinal Earth. Pluto is the ultimate alchemist, the most Shamanic of all of the Planets. It is about letting go of what has been outgrown. Transmutation.
I can’t emphasize enough how powerful this New Moon is, given the other Planetary energies working with it. Not only do we have the opportunities for new beginnings, but the opportunities to release that which does not serve us. Uranus will insist on radical change. Pluto will insist on radical rebirth. Combine that with the Sun and Moon in Libra, the sign of Justice, and you have a recipe for radical new beginnings for the self, yes, but also for humanity. There is a Zen quote which sums this New Moon up perfectly: ” Let go, or be dragged.” I vote to let go, and steer a course towards your dreams.
