Cleansing Your Crystals

If you are a fan of crystals (I am SUUUUUUUCCCHHHH a big fan!!) then you should know that as much as crystal energy can effect your energy in a positive way, over time, the crystal also absorbs your energy or the energy of the people around you.

So, over time, the energy of the crystal can become 'dirty' or 'clouded'.

Hence, you need to give the poor lil thing a shower after a period of time. How many times a month should you clean your crystal depends on how many times do you wear it, how you feel and what kind of state the crystal is in. For mine, since i wear it on a daily basis, I cleanse them about once a week. OK, fine. Sometimes I forget.

I forgot to clean mine last week so, here I am, giving them a bath in sea salt solution under the sun.

Always use natural salts as opposed to the usual ones. I know sea salt and lake salt are more expensive but haiyo, these things cannot be frugal about. That is, if you believe in it lah. If you don't, then just use normal salt to rid it of bacteria and stuff.

Bacteria and dirt is also considered dirty, right?

Anyway, the green crystal is malachite which is getting quite rare these days. I love it because it looks a bit like Saturn with those white rings around it! Absolutely heart this crystal. Close-up of the Malachite crystal is like this>>

The blue one is Lapis Lazuli which is also very pretty! It's dark blue with little golden patches in it. The more you wear it, the more patches there are. Close up, it looks like this.

The purple one is, by far, the most common one...Amethyst. It's also one of my favorite. Can't upload the amethyst close-up picture but if you are interested, hit Google and find some really nice images.

So, yes. I am a Crazy Crystal Collector!! :-)

Note (9th Aug 2010): TURNS OUT, you will ruin Malachite when it comes in contact with water. FML. Now, the Malachite is so dull in color. So, warning to crystal lovers, do NOT soak Malachite!!

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
