Crystals and Colors

Cosmic Ray Therapy- Nine colors are radiated by the nine planets onto the Earth through sunlight which forms an integral part of a living beings environment. Each body has a distinct combination of these nine colors based upon the positions of the planets at the time of their birth. Due to the changing positions of the planets, a shortage of one or a group of colors is created in the body resulting in physical, mental and enviromental ailments referred to as "color hunger". The precise method of "pendulum dowsing" identifies this color hunger and crystals of different colors are used to balance the vibrations in the body. The crystals must be worn in direct contact with the persons skin and must be exposed to light..

May Day/Beltane

     This holiday stems back to ancient time. May day is celebrated by many different cultures.
Known to many as one of the Celtic Fire Festivals, Beltane, celebrated half way between Spring Equinox/Ostara and Summer Solstice/Midsummer festivals.
     Beltane is also mentioned in the earliest of Irish literature. Rituals were preformed for protection of animals, crops, and people. Special bonfires were lit and their smoke, fire, and ash was believed to have protective powers. It was also believed the Beltane dew had powers to bring youthfulness and beauty.
     In Wicca tradition it is one of the Sabbaths on the Wheel of the year. The Wicca Beltane unifies practices from many cultures including the Maypole and closely resembles the Germanic May day celebrations.
   The Maypoles symbolism is debated upon. However, they were mostly found in Germanic Europe, where, Germanic paganism was practiced in many forms, this leads to speculations that maypoles were somehow a continuation of Germanic pagan tradition. It is also believed they were symbolism for sacred trees, or the world tree. The world tree or tree of life symbolizes the great connection of all things.
     Here's to all of us feeling the connection we have to the light on this May day as we celebrate life.
