You know my fairy tale love is old, and I have to admit the coming out of the new Beauty and the Beast movie brought me a lot of inspiration. One of the ideas I got was to create Crystal Bundles inspired from fairy tales, both for my store, and for tumblr. The first one will, of course, be inspired by Beauty and the Beast. Each crystal has been picked because it made me think of a part of the movie, or the traits of the characters!
Sodalite: for the seeker of the truth behind the masks, just like the one of the beast. Sodalite will help you look at the truth within yourself but outside too. It will help you develop your psychic powers and a better understanding of the world
Citrine: Citrine will heal your soul like Belle healed the one of the Beast. This is a crystal of will, imagination, and manifestation. A perfect stone for Belle… and for you!
Calcite: this crystal is here to bring you peace, the calm after the tempest. It will help cleanse and protect your environment, as well as heal old wounds. This stone represents the change Belle brought to the Enchanted Castle, and to the Beast.
Carnelian: carnelian brings warmth and joy to the coldest heart, even the Beast’s! It will help you stay motivated and strong, as well as finding your inner courage!
Lapis Lazuli: symbol of royalty and honor, a perfect crystal to represent Belle, but also the Prince behind the Beast. It also represents wisdom and truth, two things very important in the story of Beauty and the Beast. The wisdom to learn, and the truth that needs to be discovered.
You know when someone tells you, you CAN’T, and you do everything in your will power to prove them wrong? Well, Sodalite is an amazing conductor of aha moments. Sodalite is a healing gemstone that allows one to connect the inner and outer worlds together, enabling one to decipher archetypal patterns in the universe. Psychics, tarot readers, numerologists, and other diviners would benefit from using Sodalite to help them translate their oracles.
Sodalite stimulates the third eye chakra and gifts the user with deep insight, intuition, and clarity, kick-starting one’s inner genius. It allows you to assess your motivations, desires, strengths, weaknesses, gifts, and patterns of personal destiny.
Sodalite creates an inner stubborn courage that allows you to stay on your path, without doubting yourself. It’s almost as if it takes the reigns from the universe for a short while. It does not change your destiny, but gives you those little cosmic pushes that we all need sometimes.
Sodalite is also excellent for artists, writers, musicians, and anyone who requires creativity.
Sodalite is also excellent for mental endurance, and helps you to retain information, which is why students should take advantage of this stone.
I have been wearing my Sodalite pendant for a few weeks now, and let me tell you, I have been able to piece together things in my life, to the point that they are no longer puzzle pieces, but a beautiful image that I can now reflect upon. This is why Sodalite is the perfect stone to use during these crazy retrogrades, as all of your inner work, will be far less daunting.
I could write an entire blog post about my experiences with this stone, so if you would like more information, please feel free to send me a message:)

Lay your fabric flat onto a table (on the reverse side if there is one), so you will have a double layer. Trace
the shape of a moon crescent onto the fabric. Take your scissors and cut out the shape of your crescent, on the double piece of fabric (you will get two similar pieces in shape of moon crescent).
Stitch them together with your needle and thread, but leave one space open and use it to reverse the fabric, so that the stiches are not visible.
Place your herbs and stones in the “bag”, and for each one focus on the purpose of this bag: to give you good nights of sleep.
Once this done, close the crescent. Your guardian is ready!
Place it near your bed to find the good sleep you are seeking.
use a dark pen to draw the shape of a benevolent face on the crescent
make a little hole in the fabric to put the ribbon in and hang the crescent near your bed.
If you want some help to focus on the intent, you can repeat this haiku:
Corrupt Form: Sodalite in general: The gem’s corrupt form would be based on an animal since the stone can be carved into small animal statues (among other things). The gem may endure scratches during battle and/or have ripple indentations (conchoidal fractures). The corrupt gem form is fluorescent in ultraviolet light.
“It will be quickly scratched if used in a ring or bracelet. It therefore is best used in earrings, pins, pendants, and other items that will not subject the sodalite to impact or abrasion.” http://geology.com/minerals/sodalite.shtml
