Crystal Herbalism – Self Care

The self is sacred. A being that bleeds color and breathes in the world around it. The self is a collector of light, giving shadows new meaning, art. The self feels the experiences like a river does to a rock, all at once.

Rose Quartz is a heart chakra crystal that embodies femininity, divinity, and compassion. 

The heart chakra is the center to your wellbeing the pathway between your lower and upper chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar, HEART, Throat, Third Eye, Crown. By cleansing your heart, you are able to find more emotional balance and clarity. I like to think of the heart as the place where the soul resides. When someone asks for you, you tend to point towards the center of your chest in response, “Who Me?” 

Crystal HerbalismThe Devotion of Tara 

Devotion is a deep and overwhelming magical loyalty, a feeling that is experienced rather than expressed in words. It wasn’t until I found Tara that I was able to root into the intensity of devotion.

Crystal Herbalism – I AM A WITCH 🙏 

I am a woman who honors her mystical heritage, uses the earth as her oracle, and listens to her intuition. Nature is my temple, my soul is my sacred place. I collect crystals, talk to plants, and find yoga as a form of spell work.

I am a WITCH who loves Buddha and black cats. 
I am a WITCH who loves the faerie star not the pentagram. 
I am a WITCH who loves the moon yet fears the night. 

I am a WITCH because my womb holds the universe.
I am a WITCH because my ancestors survived the witch trials.
I am a WITCH because as a little girl I found comfort in magick. 

I am a WITCH.

Crystal Herbalism – 

Discovering Tara

When you find your god you find yourself.

I remember never feeling a part of a “religion” because the way I saw spirituality wasn’t being reflected back to me. When I discovered Tara in the crystal shop I used to work, everything came into clarity.

Her Beginning

Before Tara became a Buddha, she was a princess names Wisdom Moon, who devoted her time to a deep meditation practice. When she was close to reaching enlightenment the monks told her that she must come back as a man in order to reach Buddhahood. She told them, “Those who wish to attain supreme enlightenment in a man’s body are many, but those who wish to serve the aims of beings in a woman’s body are few indeed; therefore may I, until this world is emptied out, work for the benefit of sentient beings in a woman’s body.” It is with her vow that she became Tara the Liberator, the first Buddhist feminist.

Her Symbolism

Tara is made of light, her name meaning star. She sits on a blossoming lotus, radiating compassion. She is a protector, the mother of all Buddhas, a manifestation of wisdom and swift action.

Her posture is relaxed, open, and loving. Her right foot is outstretched showing her readiness to take action while her left foot is tucked in, indicating that she has full control over her inner energies. One foot in the world and one foot in meditation.

Tara holds close to herself a blue lotus, representing the three realms: past, present, and future. On her body is OM at her crown chakra, AH at her throat, and HUM at her heart chakra.

Devotion To Her

  • Mantra: Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha
  • Crystals: blue tara quartz, celestite rose quartz, green fluorite, labradorite
  • Plant: lotus
  • Moon Phase: crescent moon

Tara Goddess Tea:

Release. Rest. Nourish. Send devotion inward with this Tara Goddess Tea. You are the universe, a vibrant light within the galaxy of stars. You are the earth. An elemental spirit. Like the waters, you ebb and flow with the tides of life. Reflecting and deepening with each breathing wave. Pair this earth and air energy tea with a moss agate crystal, this brew sends love to your wild soul.

  • 1 tsp Green Tea
  • ½ tsp Lemongrass
  • ½ tsp Peppermint
  • ½ tsp Local Honey
