This month my travels bring me to Fayetteville, Arkansas to speak at the 29th Annual Dowsing and Alternative Health Convention. While at first glance Arkansas might not seem like an exciting tourist attraction, I can’t contain my excitement about my journey to America’s heartland. Unless you are an avid rock fan (pun intended) you don’t know that this state contains a plethora of crystal mines! Although I won’t have time on this trip, I love to travel down to Hot Springs which is a fun little town in the center of many of the mines.
At Coleman’s Rock and Crystal Shop in Jessville, AR the curator, Jim Coleman, has a variety of rough and polished gemstones. He sells Arkansas rock crystal by the pound, but also boosts a collection of minerals that are collector and museum quality. One released recently for auction is a stone I’d never heard about before named Zincite. It made me laugh that this particular formation caught my attention as Zincite is an extremely powerful stone that is said to energize all of your chakras!
The Wegner Crystal Mine located in the Ouachita National Forest allows its guests to dig for their own crystals in their 40 acre plot. They also give you the option of panning through their sluice which is a 100 foot trough covered by shade. You can pick up a pail of gemstone rich earth and then use a screen to shake out the material, leaving you with an array of stones such as amethyst, emerald, ruby, opals and more!
Although I don’t have an extensive background in crystal healing, I do believe in their energies and know Slim would feel the same. He comes with a purely scientific viewpoint and would readily agree that crystals have different chemical structures therefore different energies or uses. This month we’ll start exploring with various crystal layouts and the use of the Harmonizer. As previous research has shown, placing the harmonizer in the center of 12 double ended herkimer diamonds is said to stop heavy rain and floods. Remember to use this configuration when you’re experiencing too much rain. Here in Colorado we could actually use some more right now!
While crystal healing is a hot topic this month my journey to Fayetteville will have a much different slant. The Ozark Research Institute is hosting their 29th Annual Dowsing and Alternative Medicine Convention. I am friends with the founders, Harold and Gladys McCoy. Since Harold’s passing Gladys and her team are doing an amazing job to keep the institute going. I’m so excited to attend the workshops and truly honored that I was asked to speak at the Power of Focused Thought School about the Light-Life Tools.
The Ozark Research Institute is a non-profit organization that was created to support humanity through education, support and research of holistic medicine. Now that is a purpose I support wholeheartedly! I believe in balance and while Western medicine is essential to our health, it’s wonderful to see Eastern medicine approaches become part of the popular conscious. Some insurance companies are now covering massage and acupuncture under their policies!
If you live in the Fayetteville area I do hope you’ll stop by at my booth and for my talk about how the Light-Life Tools can enhance your health and the health of the environment. We celebrate Earth Day this month and it’s so powerful to see our intentions aligned with others as we all do our part to help Mother Earth heal and celebrate all her beauty.
