***Shipping*** I do not profit on shipping and usually lose quite a bit of money on it with the big picture. You'll notice many items needing priority shipping have a shipping fee lower than my cost on some auctions. I will combine all your purchases to save you money just please wait to pay otherwise I need to ship within one business day. If you buy multiple items, just request an invoice, and I'll deduct the extra shipping costs and plug in the correct cost in your invoice. You can combine shipping for up to 7 days, but if you need more time please let me know but I normally don't hold longer than that since I have bills too. :) I use First Class up to 16oz packaged and Priority Flat Rates for anything heavier unless your items are too fragile to ship First Class.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING-The shipping fees shown on International Sales is Ebay's estimation system and not my numbers. It is based on the items weight and packaging. It's very possible if you order multiple items that combined shipping is much less, but I won't know until weighed and packaged. I only ship USPS, so you can get an estimate by plugging in weights from zipcode 98027 USA to yours and take in account packaging and box weight. Once you request and invoice, I'll send you what I came up with on Ebay's system, and if your shipping cost is cheaper when I print the label I will refund you the difference.
It's also very important to me that you are happy with your purchase, so please contact me if there is an issue with anything and I'll make it right.
Thank you so much for looking :)
Metaphysical Properties- I'm having to take a break from including metaphysical properties for each stone as it's limited the amount of auctions I'm able to list greatly. It takes a great deal of time to get the auctions up live, especially with the amount of pictures I take that it has slowed me down a great deal. After long thought about how to be more efficient with my time, I've decided to remove the properties and just include a master template with some tips or point you in the right direction. I will still include a little information that pops in my mind, I most likely won't put complete properties in each listing. I'm sorry for this inconvenience, as I know many of you appreciated it.
For the spiritual folks-Upon getting your stones it's always best to get to know them. I always establish a relationship with mine as well as showing thanks and gratitude. I believe everything has spirit, and I feel the energies and relationships with my stones. You'll want to get in a good habit of cleansing, programming, and charging your stones. I don't usually recommend a certain way to do this, as I believe your intention is the biggest factor in regards to this and method isn't always as important. A simple internet search to find whatever way resonates with you is just fine, then use the power of your mind along with your new stone friends and allow the magic to happen. You can also call in any spirit guides to assist you with the process. Do NOT worry about doing something wrong, because too many folks out there get wrapped up in the techniques, and that's not important. Your mind power and connection with your stones is what you should focus on. Many ask "what are the best stones for this" and that is also another area you don't need to stress about. So many stones do the same thing as others, especially ones of the same/similar color for the chakras, but I feel the importance is if the stone calls to you or you feel a draw. Cost could be an issue as obviously some are much more expensive than others, and cost does not necessarily mean it's better, especially if you are going after a Trade Named stone. So, if I get the question of what is best for a certain issue, I may recommend some based on what I know for the properties or what I've tried, but the best way to figure this out is through your intuition as well as a good internet or book search on the properties. Each stone may work a little differently with each person as well, and that's something you'll find out when you work with the stone. One stone may have a powerful reaction in my body, but you may feel nothing.
High Vibe Stones-Please be very careful if you are new to stones about working with any of the higher vibrational stones. I'm writing from experience, and I learned the hard way with this. The natural feeling is to think, "They are just stones, I can handle it". Well, I felt the same thing, and I got myself in some trouble with it with not understanding the energies, not protecting myself, running around ungrounded long term, and the result is usually just becoming a "hot mess". I understand you are hungry and passionate or just want to feel better, but if you don't discern with regards to using these energies and other spiritual things you may end up with a mess. Being ungrounded long-term will mess with you emotionally and physically. Do you really want more problems? I sure don't, and I feel I learned the hard way so I can help prevent others from making the same mistake. If you're becoming spacey, stressed, emotional, confused, depressed, anxious, short tempered, unable to sleep, or have more physical problems, you are most likely not grounded. When this happens put DOWN the high vibe crystals and do some grounding work. Getting out in nature is one of the best ways, especially bare foot on the earth, but if you live in a colder climate you can do a simple visualization. An internet search on "Grounding Techniques" will help direct you, and remember it's your intention that truly matters here not the technique. Your mind is powerful, and only think about what you want and not what you DON'T want or you could manifest it. Daily practice with things will change your life since I speak from experience.
Keeping your energy clear-It is important to make an effort to keep your energy clear on a daily basis. Your body is like a magnet walking around each day picking up residue of things around you. Have you ever walked into the room and felt you could cut the negative energy with a knife? This is an example of what we surround ourselves with each day, and just imagine what you bring home each day. Another example is a dollar bill going around from person to person. Can you just imagine what the dollar bill in your purse/wallet has been in contact with?? There are many ways to keep your energy clean. You can get totally into it and do Smudging rituals, or you can do simple visualizations or listen to clearing videos on Youtube. The possibilities are endless, so as always just do an internet search to find a way that resonates with you and your life. Many of us have limited time with the pressures of life, and there are so many quick and simple ways out there. When you start to feel bogged down and just terrible, you may just need a good, deep cleansing then it's important to do daily techniques to help stay clear.
