The word Mandala means “circle”.
A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. Mandalas are circular designs symbolizing the notion that life is never-ending. Many mandalas have spiritual significance to an individual or group of individuals. Hindus were one of the first people to use mandalas as a spiritual tool, but the mandalas most individuals are familiar with, are ones made by Buddhists.
Mandalas are said to affect the cognitive process in numerous ways. Specific arrangements of colors, along with vertical and horizontal lines, can have profound visual and psychological effects. This can be seen in its most basic form as optical illusions such as these.
Mandalas are used for meditation purposes allowing the individual meditating to become one with the universe, however, just looking at a mandala will likely not bring you to this state of mind without staring deep into it....

Moldavite is one of the rarest materials on earth! This is because it is a naturally occurring glass made by a meteorite impact from central Europe about 14.2 million years ago!
Most scientists agree that Moldavite itself is not a meteorite itself. Their chemical composition fits the sedimentary layers in the mother crater. Despite many who claim it is a meteorite, the data shows that, in fact, it is a product of the fusion of the meteorite with the earth.
Moldavite is thus, the only gem-form of Tektite, although the only translucent green kind you will ever find. Most tektite is dark brown. Because of its origins, though, it has earned the reputation as an “Alien Crystal” in Spiritual and Metaphysical circles all around the world.
In such circles, it is often described as having an enlightening effect on the individual who carries or wears a piece on them. Because of this, it is said to be an excellent stone to meditate with, and that it can assist anyone with opening...
Bursera graveolens, known in Spanish as palo santo or “holy wood,” is a tree native to Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela. These trees live up to 80 to 90 years. It is part of the citrus family, so it has sweet undertones of pine, mint, and lemon.
Palo Santo is used primarily as burning sticks, incense, and essential oil. Shamans use the smoke from lit palo santo sticks to clear the energy field of ritual participants. It is one of the most potent cleansers out there.
Similar to the properties of sage, it’s said to clear misfortune, negative thought prints, and any evil spirits. Just like a smudging ritual, you can use palo santo for the same use.
Take a feather to move the smoke around a room to clear the energy and purify the air. Make sure the smoke goes into all four corners and ensure you’re focusing on a positive intention while smudging. The more you concentrate, the more influential the energy of the room can become. Its smoke is a bit thinner than the...
Because of its healing properties, Peyote Cactus has long been recognized by Native Americans as a medicinal plant. Traditionally peyote was often used as an analgesic, treating things including toothaches, rheumatism, asthma, and even cold symptoms. Some tribes, such as the Tarahumara, commonly used masticated peyote as a topical treatment to bites, burns, wounds, and aching muscles.
Of course, one of the common appeals of Peyote Cactus apart from its healing properties is its psychedelic properties. For thousands of years, Peyote has been used in Native and Shamanic circles to induce powerful spiritual insight into the nature of life and reality, as well as facilitate healing in all aspects of life. It is an ancient medicine and shouldn’t be used just for recreational use. If you are looking to create a fundamental shift in your life or undergo a spiritual transformation, this sacred plant can aid in this.
Some of the spiritual effects of consuming Peyote include having...
The pineal gland is a tiny pine-cone shaped gland located in the center of our brain, between the left and right hemispheres. Our pineal glands synthesize and secrete melatonin, the natural compound released from our brain when we’re going to bed that makes us fall asleep.
The pineal gland has been referenced in countless ancient texts, art, and traditions throughout history. From The Buddha to statues in front of the Vatican itself – this pine-cone shaped gland has been used to represent higher states of consciousness that we are all able to achieve.
It has been referred to as the seat of the soul, as many believe this is the center point of where our inherent psychic ability comes from. Many people report intense pressure on their third eye when experiencing deep meditations, healing modalities, or even just when they’re trying to fall asleep.
Signs of an opened third eye can look like heighten sensitivity to people’s energy, the ability to tap into how...

Runes, or Old Norse, are letters of a runic alphabet that were used to write Germanic languages before using Latin. The earliest runic inscriptions date back to 150 AD. The first inscriptions found on actual artifacts remain a mystery primarily. The old runes were not only a writing system but magical symbols for spells and charms. The name rune itself means “secret or something hidden.”
Each alphabet has its own set of symbols and meanings.
You can do a reading yourself! Get some runes; they can come carved into crystal or stone, or on ceramic tiles. Make a sacred space, lay down a cloth, and concentrate on asking a question. You can either toss a few of the runes in the air or pull some out of a bag while focusing on your question. Make sure your mind is fully focused and not drawing in different random thoughts. This makes reading much more clear and concise.
Ultimately, you can create your own system for how to read runes, but traditionally you would lay three out....
