Tanzanite (2):A Must Have Rare Precious Stone that Heals, Protects, and Increase Wealth Luck!

Published Enero 22, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I introduced you to the rare and very powerful stone called Tanzanite. In that post I talked about its physical properties and why is it considered as a perfect stone to have for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. However, the Tanzanite is not just a stone for this year, it is a great stone to have and wear even beyond 2016 because it is a powerful stone that has strong protective and healing energies, and it also helps increase wealth luck. Furthermore, it is a stone that can be worn even by people with high water element in their charts, because it is balanced by the intrinsic fire and earth element of the stone.tanzanite4

HEALING

As mentioned in the first part of this post, Tanzanites are good healing stones. It helps boosts our immune system and improve strength. It is especially good for people who always feel physically weak and drained. Furthermore, it is a very powerful stone for those who experience depression and anxiety, or even chronic stress syndrome and other psychological or mental illness. It’s subtle fire energy helps people fight off addiction, especially the milder ones like alcoholism, food addiction or even shopping addiction.

MOOD ENHANCER

On top of that a lot of people I know who got the stone consistently said that their mood has definitely improve. And true enough simply looking at a Tanzanite will imbibe you with a positive energy of elation. You will feel happier and much more energized. They said it is as if simply having the stone their worries has been lifted off their shoulder. And true enough the fluid energy of the water element and the subtle vibrant energy of the fire element in the Tanzanite has this positive effect on people.tanzanite3

RELATIONSHIP AND COMMUNICATION ENHANCER

One thing I really love about the Tanzanite is that it is a wonderful that aids us in having a better relationship, whether it is a personal or professional relationship. Its blue energies directly control our throat chakra thus making us more expressive and a better communicator. However, it’s intrinsic earth energies makes us grounded thus more in control of what we want to say. But it’s fire energy helps us to be more assertive and yet in a gentle manner.

PROTECTOR

The Tanzanite is also a very good aura protector. It protects you from negative energies, especially the ones like created by the people around you. But more than that, it helps protects you from negative energies caused by unseen elementals.tanzanite5

WEALTH ENHANCER

But what is really surprising with this stone is that the combination of the three elements found in this stone creates a wonderful wealth enhancing energies. At first look some of its intrinsic elements may be contradicting each other, but the right balance that forms in every Tanzanite makes it a unique blue stone that creates a wonderful wealth enhancing energy. This is especially true for people who are in marketing, legal, advertising, PR, and sales.

I personally have several different favorite stones but the Tanzanite is now overtaking all those stones. The fact that this is a rare stone that is bound not to last very long makes it even more special.

The problem is really looking for an authentic and not very expensive Tanzanite. If you are looking for a Tanzanite better contact a trusted gemologist or jeweler. But don’t be surprised if some jewelers are still not familiar with the Tanzanite, because this is a fairly young stone. Tiffany & Co. has one of the best collections of Tanzanites that are commercially available. You can visit their site if you really want the top of the line Tanzanite that may cost around US$ 3,000.00 for a small piece. However, you need not get the top of the line for you to experience its wonderful energies. Here in the Philippines, I don’t personally know of any stores that sell authentic Tanzanite. But recently I came across a FB page called Crystals and Gold, I don’t really know the owner but the ones I referred to them are very happy with the quality of semi – precious stones they get from her. The best part is that their price is not expensive. But a Tanzanite is a Tanzanite so even an affordable Tanzanite may still cost a little high.

Tanzanite (1): A Rare But Perfect Blue Stone For This 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey!

Published Enero 21, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know that one of the most recommended cures for this year is wearing a blue stone. This is a cure for most, but not all, to determine whether you should be wearing a blue stone please read the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast.

Once you have determine that you need to wear a blue stone to supplement the energy of the missing water element, you can choose with the different blue stones, however, I believe that there is one stone that will works best for this year and the coming years. I’m talking about the Tanzanite.cristal de tanzanite (Tanzanie)

Tanzanite is a stone discovered in Mererani Hills of Manara Region is Northern Tanzania is 1967. Although Tanzanite is considered as a blue stone it may slight appear to have different colors when viewed under different light conditions. It is this varying color that makes it a perfect stone for this 2016. But before I go explain the last sentence, let me talk more about the physical qualities of a Tanzanite.

When a Tanzanite from initially as a trichroic crystal this means that it has three colors. The said colors are blue (represents water element), with some very light shades of violet (represents fire), and brown (which normally represents wood but because in this kind of formation it represents earth). When mined or ‘harvested’ before making it available commercially, gems are usually heat treated to bring out the most beautiful color of the stone. Tanzanite goes through this process as well, it takes out the brownish color, and retains only the blue color, sometimes with very minimal traces of violet, which more often than not are only visible to the eye of an expert.tanzanite-grades

Sometimes, although very rare, a heat treated Tanzanite will have a green hue, this green tanzanite are considered more valuable than the regular one. Some say that there are pink tanzanites. I personally haven’t seen one.

It is also important to know that when gem stones are mined, like the Tanzanite, they usually come up as one whole big block, the outer parts are considered the skin and will have the lowest quality, as you go deeper to the center, they are the ones that are considered as the higher quality. As mentioned earlier, to bring out the deepest blue of a Tanzanite, they are usually heat treated, and depending on the quality of color that came out, they may be considered as polished raw, high grade, gem quality. There are different subs – categories but I rather not go into that. In some cases, a Tanzanite is mined or harvested as a high grade gem quality, because of metamorphic occurrences underground, the natural blue of a Tanzanite is brought out underground, this is considered as the highest grade gem quality, and much coveted. But that is not to say that the Tanzanite that is heat treated above ground is inferior. A Tanzanite is a Tanzanite, and there is no Tanzanite that can be considered as low quality. That’s how precious they are.Tanzanite

Furthermore, Tanzanite is only mined in one place in the whole world, and that is in Mererani Hills in Tanzania. So a Tanzanite is considered really rare and naturally it is not expected to last very long. This makes a Tanzanite even more expensive and much coveted. A person who collects semi – precious stones to high quality gems will definitely wish for a Tanzanite.

However, these physical qualities of a Tanzanite are not what make it a much coveted especially for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. But it is because it is a very good stone to have regardless of the year, although again it is a perfect stone for the year. Allow me to explain but I would like to say that it is better that you understand the energies of the year by reading the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Forecast by clicking here.

tanzanite2As mentioned, the year’s chart show that this is an imbalanced year, water is missing and fire is strong as well as metal. Most people will need to have the energies of the water element and blue colored stones usually represent this. However, water destroys fire and while Feng Shui experts are saying we need water, a lot of people will naturally have the water element in their sign, so for some wearing blue stone would mean a high increase in the water energies, and thus destroying the year’s natural energies. This is fine, because the year’s natural energies is predominantly fire and it will not be destroyed but it will be tamed, but since the a Tanzanite as very slight hues of violet, which represents the fire element, harmoniously blending with its blue, then this becomes a great symbolic representation of harmonious blending of your ‘artificial’ water energies with that of the year’s natural predominant energy! This is also why it is a perfect stone for people who need the water energy but cannot not have a small fire energy. Furthermore, having the color brown that is in the case of the Tanzanite represents the earth energy and a gem being natural earth energy, this then nurtures the metal energy of the year, which for the year represents money or wealth.

Furthermore, a Tanzanite is a stone that aurically boosts one’s immune system and is quite good for various physical ailments. On top of it, it helps alleviates and prevent psychological and mental problems, both of which are illnesses that are not as easily recognized. Plus the blue of a Tanzanite, especially, the one of the gem quality is close to blue of Medicine Buddha. Combined effects of these two qualities make it a perfect stone to help us manage the ruling Illness and Accident energy of the year. This with the Illness Suppression Amulet should help us avoid getting affected by the effects of the Illness Star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

My next post shall talk about why the Tanzanite is also a good stone even beyond 2016.

Incidentally, since I have started my blog, especially the ones that talks about the use of crystals, people have been asking me where they can get their crystals or semi – precious stones or even precious ones. I normally refer them to various suppliers depending on the stone they need or want. However, recently I was quite fortunate to come across a FB page that says crystals, they are called Crystals and Gold. I don’t really know the owner, but looking at their pictures it do seems that they have good authentic natural crystals (not fake one), the ones that have a prices indicated seems to be very reasonable, actually they are very affordable and low compared to other sellers. You can visit their site just look for it. I have referred several readers and they seem very happy with the quality and the price. I just hope they still have Tanzanites!

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

Namtso Salt: A Rare Buddhist Artisan Salt Used for Protection from Negative Energy and for Enhancing Wealth Luck!

Published Nobyembre 29, 2014 by jptan2012

namtso-lake-tibet-china (2)
Despite being one of the largest salt-water lakes in Asia, Namtso is still relatively an unknown name to most people. But from this unknown lake comes one of the rarest Buddhist artisan salts that are good in combating and protecting us from negative chi and also helps generate wealth luck.
Namtso Lake is more popularly known as the ‘Heavenly Lake’ and is considered as the third holiest lake in Tibet. It is also the largest salt-water lake in Tibet.
Before China invaded Tibet, Namtso Lake is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites; inspite of it’s relatively being inaccessible. The famous Tashi Dor monastery is located at the southeastern corner of the lake. Now it has simply become a tourist spot because the Chinese government has disallowed that it be considered a pilgrimage and holy site. namsto.4
I’ve never been to Namtso Lake, but according to my Guru Lama, Namtso Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes one can ever see. Its water is turquoise in color giving it a look of an ocean. It is believed that Namtso Lake has been an apparition site of various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, namely, Avalokitesvara (Kuan Yin in her original form), White Dzambhala, Medicine Buddha. Furthermore, it is said the Guru Rinpoche himself has declared the lake to be holy.
There is no clear history as to when it started but Namtso Lake being a holy salt-water lake, gave rise to one of the most powerful salt in combatting negative energy and helping to enhance wealth luck.
Namtso Salt is a whole round chunk of salt as big as a small baby’s head. It is usually process in a clay pot and is considered as one of the purest salt. Placing the Namtso salt in a room will protect the room from negative chi. It is extremely advisable for one to use Namtso Salt if one doesn’t know whether a Feng Shui of the room is good or bad. Furthermore, a Namtso Salt that has been blessed by a monk can drive away evil spirits.
Aside from driving away evil spirits and protecting us from negative chi, Namtso Salt placed on the center table of the living room and on the dining table acts as a very potent wealth enhancer. According to my Guru Lama, he personally witnessed this when a 2nd generation Tibetan refugee migrated to Singapore to seek for greener pastures. However, after 2 years of staying in Singapore he was unable to improve his life and has not been able to send a single centavo to his family in India. Worst, he is not even able to send letters because he was so poor that he doesn’t have money for postage and of course, emails is out of the question. Out of frustration, he seeks out the help of a monk who happens to be a student of my Guru Lama. This particular young monk then brought his story to the attention of my Guru Lama. My Guru Lama then decided to do a special puja for him, but since he has a small chunk of Namtso Salt with him, he decided to bless it and gave it to the Tibetan refugee. His luck then has since has a great turn around, it has been 10 years since it happened, and he has now went back home to India where he now has his won business. He got his capital in Singapore and has largely recognized that his luck started to change for good after he received the Namtso Salt.
Making the Namtso Salt is a very tedious process, and takes months before one is finally available.
First, Buddhist monks usually gathered fallen woods from the forest. They will the soak the woods in the Namtso Lake for 6 months. After 6 months, they will then chop the woods into smaller chunks and dry them out under the sun. The process usually takes up to 5 days. Then they will slowly burn the said wood, once the wood is burnt into ashes they will then put more Namtso Lake salt water and put it into clay pots. That’s when they’ll cook the salt. The salt is cooked once the clay pots broke. namtso salt
To my knowledge, there is only one other place who do a similar artisan salt this way, and that’s here in the Philippines. Bohol also has a similar process, but unlike the Namtso Salt the one in Bohol is made for cooking.
In using the Namtso Salt as a protection against negative energy or to drive away evil spirits, it’s advisable to place one whole Namtso Salt in each room of the house or in the room where the evil spirit dwells. If you’re confined in a hospital, it’s also good to bring one whole Namtso Salt and place it in your hospital room.
Breaking a Namtso Salt into smaller pieces can also act as protection amulet. Again it will drive away evil spirits and protect us from negative energy. It is recommended when carried on as an amulet, place a small chunk (about the size of a tablespoon) in a red cloth and carry it with you. Carrying when going to the yin places like cemeteries, hospitals, etc. will also protect us from the yin energy of the place. These small chunks will also act as a micro wealth luck enhancer.
As mentioned, to use the Namtso Salt as wealth enhancer, one can place it on the dining table and on the center table of the living room.
Placing a whole Namtso Salt on the front door will repel all negative energies, and putting them inside the toilet, will help alleviate the negative energies cause by having a toilet in that section of the house.
Taking a Namtso Salt bath is also the most effective salt bath. One you can do is get a small chunk about a size of a tablespoon and put it in the tub.
China’s invasion of Tibet has made the making of the Namtso Salt even more difficult. It was already extremely difficult to make a batch of Namtso Salt before but it was even harder now, so much so that per batch of Namtso Salts are only made every 10 to 15 years. Furthermore, this is usually smuggled out of Tibet because the Chinese government in an effort to stop Buddhism has also made it illegal to make and export Namtso Salts out of Tibet.
A very limited number of Namtso Salts is being made available for the readers of this blog thru the kindness of my Guru Lama. Proceeds of the sale of the said Namtso Salts are to be given to either for the food of the Buddhist monks or to Tibetan refugees. However, because of the bulkiness of the Namtso Salts, there will only be limited areas or countries that can receive them. Also, for shipments we might have to do it by bulk.
