Om Mani Padme Hum Prayer Wheel: Lapis Lazuli • Rhodochrosite Yoga Mala Bead Bracelet
Crystals were created as the earth formed and they have continued to metamorphose as the planet itself has changed. They are the earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.
Crystals make excellent jewelry for both men and women. Wearing gems used to be a royal or priestly prerogative. The high priest of Judaism wore a breastplate set with precious stones. It was much more than a badge of office; it conveyed power to the wearer. As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewelry and talismen. They had a protective as well as decorative function, guarding their wearer from harm.
Crystals have been used to heal and bring balance, working through resonance and vibration. Crystals are said to heal holistically - that is to say, they work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being. They realign subtle energies that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and activating linkage points to the chakras that regulate the body's vibrational stasis.

BUDDHIST MANTRA PRAYER: Om Mani Padme Hum
"Behold! The jewel in the lotus!"
"The six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."
- Dalai Lama
OM purifies EGO
MA purifies JEALOUSY
NI purifies PASSION
PAD purifies IGNORANCE
ME purifies GREED
HUM purifies HATRED
Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel (or prayer wheel) is also believed to give the same benefit as saying the mantra, and Mani wheels, small hand wheels and large wheels with millions of copies of the mantra inside, are found everywhere in the lands influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

Rhodochrosite represents selfless love and compassion. It is a wonderful stone to use when working with the Heart Chakra and relationships. Those dealing with loss will find a deep love within this stone. Comforting and positive, Rhodochrosite helps to bring repressed emotions to the surface to be acknowledged, addressed, and released, allowing for much personal growth to take place. Rhodochrosite aids in self-forgiveness and self-love.
Rhodochrosite is also good for clearing the Root and Solar Plexus Chakras, improving self-worth, attracting love, and relieving emotional stress. Use Rhodochrosite in meditation to relax the diaphragm for full, deep breathing. Rhodochrosite can help those stuck in any phase of the grief process, by clearing out negative vibrations from the middle chakras. Meditating with Rhodochrosite can connect one to the Divine mind, allowing one to see the purpose behind negative experiences.
Many people work with Rhodochrosite to bring much needed Love into the world. This stone is often used for repairing the subtle bodies and for reclaiming lost gifts. In this latter capacity, one can work with Rhodochrosite to bring about the healing of past events that have caused the breakdown of one's self-confidence and self-knowledge to the point where personal gifts have been given up, in favor of living in "survival mode“. Once these past issues are healed, it becomes easier for the person to remember their gifts and their true purpose for this incarnation.
