New Hub – Seven Healing Crystals to Ease Anxiety

I knew it had been a while since I wrote my last hub as I have been working on the online jewellery making course and some other freelance bits and pieces but didn’t realise it had been as much as four months! That time has really flown by and I am glad I will have more time now to share more hubs with you all.

This morning I have added another hub to my series on crystal healing – Seven Healing Crystals to Ease Anxiety. As out modern lives become increasingly busy and filled with demands and worries, anxiety is becoming more and more common among people of all ages. If you are wishing to avoid or limit the use of conventional medicine crystals can be an excellent choice to help ease the symptoms of anxiety and stress. Crystal healing is safe for use by all agesand does not interact with other medications or therpaies. The hub contains information on some benefical crystals as well as general information on how to use and care for them. You can read the full article on HubPages here.

Flickr Photograph Gallery

As I use a lot of other artists photographs from Flickr and Wikimedia Commons, I have decided to make the majority of my photograph gallery at Flickr available for others to use as well. The main exceptions to this will be photos of jewellery, food and a few others that are work or project related and so I need to retain the copyright too. I may remove those entirely, however I do find them useful – for example when adding recipes to Pinterest so I am undecided.

The photos are available to use under Creative Commons licencing and can be used commercially as well as privately. The only requirement is that credit is given to me as the original artist and this applies whether they are used online or offline, commercially or otherwise. The text need only be small and can be with the photograph or in in a ‘credits’ section of a document for example. It is only fair to credit the artist, especially when using their work with no charge. More information on Creative Commons licenses can be found here including how to share your own art using them.

The Elderberry Arts Flickr page can be found at https://www.flickr.com/photos/elderberryarts/ The last batch of photos I uploaded was a selection of some of my crystals, some plants and flowers and some shots of my veggie garden. Hope you like them and if you like you can follow too 🙂

The Sacral Chakra

Sacral chakra

The sacral chakra is the second of the major chakras and is the centre of creativity, desire and sexuality. It can have an effect on our relationships with others, energy levels, independence, confidence and natural bodily cycles. Some traditions believe that this is where we store healthy energy so that it can be used later.

Imbalances in the sacral chakra can lead to problems with the intestines, kidneys, spleen and gallbladder. Gynecological problems, lower back pain and sexual dysfunctions can also be the result of an unhealthy sacral chakra.
