CLEANSING YOUR CRYSTAL

The life field of a human is the strongest of all life fields. When another person touches your crystal, he leaves his own energy imprinted on the life field of the crystal. To avoid this the crystal should be cleansed to remove the imprinted energy. This can be done by covering the crystal with sea salt for 2 to 7 days. Or, if you prefer, you may submerge your crystal in a salt water solution of one half pound of sea salt to one gallon of water for the same period of time.
Another way to cleanse your crystal is too wash it thoroughly in water and leave out in the moonlight for one night. Sunlight can have the same effect.

ACTIVATING YOUR CRYSTAL

Hold your crystal in the palm of your left hand. In a short while the crystal will begin to pulse or vibrate in attunement with you. This will feel like a tingling sensation in your hand. Some may have to wait longer for this to happen. As soon as you feel this sensation you can begin to use it.

HEALING WITH YOUR CRYSTAL

Make sure you are thoroughly relaxed and in a comfortable environment. Hold your crystal in your Left hand. Place your right hand over the pain area. If the pain is on the right side, place the left hand with the crystal on the area, then grasp the left arm with the right hand. Hold these positions for half an hour if possible.
The crystal amplifies energy. Energy flows in the left hand and out the right hand. If you place your right hand over the pain area, youwill decrease the pain by sending energy into that area.
You can also use your crystal during meditation, simply by holding it in your left hand and placing your right hand over your left. You will feel the energy being circulated through your body and this can bring an incredible feeling of euphoria and peace.

Blue Lace Agate is a gentle, calming stone that brings tranquility, a lessening of anger (even deep anger issues) and a calming of nervousness. It assists in releasing the fear of death and oppressive burdens. It brings peace and it enhances clear self-expression. It helps to access the highest realms, bringing you inspiration. Carry Blue Lace Agate to soothe and open avenues to self-expression, as it allows you to speak your truth peacefully and calmly. It aids in releasing your fears with regards to your own self-expression. It's one of the best stones for opening your throat chakra when its natural function has become limited or blocked. Spiritually, Blue Lace Agate assists in flight, grace, reaching higher Spiritual planes, communicating with Angels and activating the throat chakra. It can help bring you stronger intuition and inner knowing. Inspiration is another hallmark of Blue Lace Agate, assisting in inner attunement, and can be useful for performing miracles. Blue Lace Agate is considered a stone of communication, taking the harsh edge off communication in difficult times, enhancing public speaking, and smoothing discussions. It also brings tactfulness to speech and written communications. It's used in crystal healing to reduce or cure stuttering and other nervous speech habits and patterns. As with all Agates, Blue Lace Agate is a protective stone and can be particularly effective when calling upon Angels for protection. It can aid with arthritis, headaches, digestive issues, physical growth, and bone strengthening.

Chakras: Third Eye, Throat
Astrological sign: Gemini, Pisces

to post a pic here, you upload it from your computer - and if you have a cell phone you can either upload that to your comp and then put it here or send it to your CM photo email address. I use Dropbox to share files between my phone, my comp, and all my accounts.

If you can find someone who works with stoned... gemologists who go out and dig these stones. My husbands uncle and my aunts husband does this. Jewelers are great but i think you would learn more from someone that has like a rock and gemstone store. Metaphysical store if they have someone working that knows about the stones would be great too. They can tell you the name and all that goes with that stone.
