Women have tried everything in the name of youth; Creams. Injections. Surgery. Photoshop. But what about crystals? I first became interested in crystals when I had a lot of time on my hands during my ten day raw food retreat. I happen to pick up a book about crystals and stumbled upon a particular stone that is known for its anti-aging properties… my heart began racing! I’m all for every kind of support to help slow down the hands of time. Before I tell you about this anti-aging crystal, let me explain how crystal energy works.

“Crystals grow in the earth’s crust over millions of years at high pressures and heat making them the objects on earth with the most energy. Having a crystal on you or within your electromagnetic field (3 feet surrounding you), raises your vibrational level by refracting and reflecting light into your auric field. This is a process much like acupuncture, which filters out stagnant energy. Though crystals will also filter their unique properties into your auric field as well.

Crystals are capable of receiving, containing, projecting, emanating, refracting, and reflecting light – the highest form of energy known in the physical universe. They not only move energy around the human form, but propel energy around the globe, and are often utilized within the areas of science and technology. Crystals have been useful in everything from lasers for microscopic surgery to biodynamic farming, but can be found in everyday products as well such as wrinkle cream.

Crystals operate by naturally focusing and magnifying the body’s innate energies, which dissipate and equalize mental, emotional and psychic stress. They further alleviate suppressed or unreleased pain, and help one to make desired shifts in every aspect of one’s being. The results are an elevated quality of life in all areas, including personal growth and optimum health.

For centuries crystals have been used to heal. Such experiences have been documented in Sanskrit and thread various cultures and civilizations throughout time. The Mayans, American Indians, and various Latin American and Indian cultures all contain histories rich with stone healing. It is in fact debatable whether jewelry was originally invented for adornment or healing.

Each gemstone embodies a unique energy with a specific kind of healing. Our popular questions section shows you how to choose the right healing stone for your system. You do not need to meditate to experience a shift from a crystal. Crystals are science that can be experienced in an awakened state.”  Source: http://www.consciousjewelry.com/stone_pages/how-do-crystals-work

Now back to the actual stone. It’s called mookaite jasper.

“Part of the reason why your body physically ages, is related to your attitude towards aging, and your belief that it is inevitable. While this is true to a degree, your physical body responds to your way of thinking, and the more you believe in the aging process the more you physically age.

One of the things that is powerful about the vibration of Mookaite Jasper, is its action to help you to change your beliefs about the inevitability of the body’s degeneration. The energy of this crystal helps to raise the vibration of your body and the vibration of your thoughts that relate to aging, helping you to feel younger in your attitude to life.

Mookaite Jasper stones may take some time to have an effect… rather than a quick fix… as they are working to change ideas that have taken many years to become beliefs. It is a good idea to place a piece of Mookaite Jasper under your pillow, so that every night its energy will help to slow aging you while you sleep. By aiding you to change how you think about the whole process of getting older, they may help you to slow aging in your body.

Often the way you age may be related to genetic patterns that you have inherited, but some of these can be cleared, and this crystal can help with this. It aids you to clear unhealthy genetic problems from your auric field and this includes patterns that may be causing aging.”       Source: http://www.healing-crystals-for-you.com/mookaite-jasper.html

I found some beautiful pieces on Etsy (just search “mookaite jasper”) and I keep them under my pillow, on my bathroom vanity and I also started a little ritual where I put all of my Celtic Complexion retail products within a circle of these stones. The stones themselves are not expensive, and I have looked into having a necklace made with these stones so I can wear them on my body (you can buy already made necklaces and bracelets on Etsy).

Do they work? Well, the jury is out for me simply because I’ve just started using them, but I’m all for a new tool in my anti-aging toolbox!
