I love the autumn !
As we move into the Autumn Equinox, where day and night are of equal length … the seasons change, and we officially head into Autumn (Sunday 23rd 02.54 am UK time).
The energy of the Autumn Equinox is all about slowing down, ‘balance’, ‘inner reflection’, and 'gratitude'.
As we welcome in this new season, make sure to pause for a moment, and TAKE TIME FOR YOU.
It's a time of harvest, and the perfect time check in with yourself, and take time to reflect back over the last few months.
What 'seeds' or ideas that you planted germinated, and grew well, and what what didn't? What can you learn from this, and what new seeds will you plant in the future?
The energies around the Equinox are powerful. They can be 'felt' in the days leading up to, and for a few days after, so if you’re been feeling energetically ‘out of kilter’ you’re not going crazy.
You might feel more tired than usual, and if you are, it's perfectly normal. Best advice is to listen to your body, and go with the flow, rather than try to fight it.
A few ideas from me to mark the Autumn Equinox:-
Grounding & Balancing crystals I love are: Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Shungite, Botswana Agate (or any agates), Picture Jasper, Smoky Quartz and Tiger Eye.
Energizing crystals – when I’m feeling shattered are Carnelian, Pyrite, Sunstone and ‘master healer’ Clear Quartz and fabulous Citrine, to help lift my spirits and energise me. Perfect for when the days get colder and the evenings draw in, and there's no 'sunlight' to boost your energy levels.
On a personal level, I also particularly adore Garnet, which for me, brings a deeply comforting, nurturing, heart centred & grounded energy.
Take note of what crystals YOU are drawn to in your own collection, or in my handmade 'Crystal Energy Jewellery' SHOP, There’s ALWAYS a reason, and it’s always what you need, so trust your body’s wisdom.
I've pulled together an Autumnal energy & colour palette section on my website, with beautiful golds, browns, oranges and earthy tones on my website which you might like to take a peek at.
Take a few minutes to energetically connect, or tune in to your own crystals at home, (or notice what you're drawn to in my shop). Hold your crystals, wear them, and have them close to you to help balance and align your energy, or pop them under your pillow at night.
Sending lots of love to you all.

SEPTEMBER birthstone spotlight. LAPIS LAZULI, SODALITE & IOLITE handmade 'Crystal Energy Jewellery' by Paula-Rose.
Sensational September Blues ...
The birthstones for September are Lapis Lazuli, Sapphire, Iolite (also known as Water Sapphire), and Sodalite, so it's all about the blues !
LAPIS LAZULI, SAPPHIRE, IOLITE & SODALITE crystal energies are all associated with helping you tap into your deepest inner wisdom and intuition.
They have a gorgeously calming energy, and a deep connection with communication and expression. Wear them when you want to stay calm and centred, access your deepest intuition, and have the confidence to speak your truth.
Having worked with crystals for many years, and as a Master/Teacher in Crystal Healing, I'm a huge advocate for working with crystal energy by having them close to you at all times. A beautiful way to do this is by wearing them as jewellery.
The best bit is ... you don't need a birthday in September as an excuse !
When you have crystals close to your body, (that is to say ... in your energetic field) the crystal energies help to bring our (typically discordant) energy into 'resonance' with theirs, which is beautifully stable. And that's where the magic happens !
Both Lapis Lazuli, Iolite & Sodalite resonate to the 3rd Eye or Brow chakra (the one in the middle of your forehead which links to the pituitary gland). The 3rd Eye/Brow chakra connects us to our sixth sense and INTUITION and helps us tap into our psychic abilities.
They also resonate to the Throat chakra which is all about EXPRESSION, and the confidence to acknowledge inwardly, or calmly speak your inner truth outwardly.
LAPIS LAZULI has been highly prized for thousands of years, legends and stories date back to 5000 BC, which is over 7,000 years ago !
Known as the 'stone of heaven' it was considered a holy stone and the stone of Royalty.
Especially loved by the ancient Egyptians, it was famously used to decorate King Tutankhamen's incredible funeral mask, and widely found in the lives & tombs of Pharaohs of ancient Egypt.
Lapis Lazuli is widely used to help us connect to our intuition, psychic gifts, higher realms and guides. It was (and still is) considered as unsurpassed as a stone of spirituality by many.

SODALITE - is a stone of calmness and awakening, insight and clarity, helping you on your path, and to see the bigger picture … new horizons and journeys.
Also a stone of self-expression and confidence, it encourages you to be true to yourself, finding your inner power, and in speaking your truth.
Sodalite is often used to help stimulate the 3rd Eye/brow chakra, promoting access to subconscious and intuitive abilities. It is sometimes known as the 'Logic Stone' for it's ability to help enhance insight, mental performance, and deepened intuition.
