Labradorite Crystal


Labradorite was first discovered in Canada during the 18th century by Moravian missionaries in a place called Labrador. When this crystal was first discovered, many believed that the stone was created from a frozen fire which was a result of the northern lights. With its pearly exterior that shines in a variety of iridescent blues, greens, blacks, orange, and purples the Labradorite crystal reminds us to keep it magical by linking us to the spiritual realm, a dimension where anything is possible. Other crystals keep us anchored to the earth with their powerful grounding effects while Labradorite encourages us to keep our head in the clouds.

This Crystal is a highly mystical and protective stone, a bringer of light and goodwill. It raises consciousness and connects with universal energies. Labradorite deflects unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage. It forms a barrier to shed negative energies during therapy. It can take your conscious mind into another world or into other lives. This is a crystal that’s filled with esoteric knowledge that can also facilitate initiation into the mysteries.

Labradorite aligns the physical and etheric bodies and accesses spiritual purpose. It raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies into the physical body. This stone stimulates intuition and psychic gifts including the art of “right timing,” bringing messages from the unconscious mind to the surface and facilitating their understanding.


Psychologically, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities and the psychic debris from previous disappointment, including those experienced in past lives. It strengthens faith in self and trust in the universe. It removes other people’s projections, including thought forms that have hooked into the aura. It calms an overactive mind and brings energy to the imagination, bringing up new ideas. Analysis and rationality are balanced with the inner sight. Labradorite brings contemplation and introspection. Synthesizing intellectual thought with intuitive wisdom. It is an excellent dispeller of illusions, going to the root of a matter and showing the real intention behind thoughts and action. This Crystal brings up suppressed memories from the past. Labradorite is a useful companion through changes, imparting strength and perseverance.


Labradorite is very popular in jewelry making mainly because of its many and vibrant colors. Most prefer to attach it to necklaces and rings while others prefer to collect them in its raw form. I personally prefer the raw crystal because it’s more natural and untouched. I’ve only recently bought this crystal, so I’m yet to see what it can do on a personal level.

Unremembered Acts of Kindness

William Wordsworth once wrote “the best portion of a good man’s life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.” We all hope to make a difference. We hope that we will someday perform a grand act that will forever alter someone else’s life in a positive way, but it does not always take a grand gesture to impact someone’s life. It is the everyday moments of smiling, saying hello, listening to someone speak, and being a compassionate person that make a difference. While all of our moments of kindness may not be able to be pinpointed and may not always be remembered, they alter someone’s mood; they change a person’s day or perception of the world around them and make a difference even if it goes unnoticed at the moment.

I stumbled upon an episode of One Tree Hill titled “Songs to Love and Die By” which premiered during season 4 of the show. The episode was based in a dream, which occurred when one of the characters experienced heart failure and was met by the ghost of a deceased love one. The character didn’t think he mattered, he was unaware he made such a tremendous impact on those around him, until he was shown the lives of his friends and family had he made selfish choices in life rather than his random acts of kindness. The little acts of kindness he put forth into the world altered and shaped the lives of all those around him, even if it wasn’t entirely obvious at the time said acts were performed.

It is the little acts of selflessness that make a difference. Sometimes it takes a ghost from our past to afford us the opportunity to realize we have made a difference. We have positively impacted the life of those around us through what William Wordsworth described as “nameless unremembered acts of kindness.” While all of our selfless choices may not be remembered, the feelings of compassion and understanding long outlive the memory of our words or gestures. We can create a change in the world by listening to someone else and letting them know they are not alone. We can choose to positively impact society around us everyday, without waiting for the opportunity for a grand gesture; it’s the little moments of kindness that inspire others to make kind choices as well. As Eleanor Roosevelt once stated, “one’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes…and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.” Choose to make a difference today. We don’t need to wait until life circumstances play out the way we want them to in order to become better people; we can start being better people now.

Dusk Mane



This is a photo manipulation celebrating the beauty of voluminous hair. I created this because I was in the mood to “cottonize” my hair, and its dark color reminded me of the cosmic sky known as outer space. Because of my hair in its curly state, many don’t realize that i’m Latino until I begin to speak Spanish, and it’s even harder to tell when my hair is in it’s cotton state. I enjoy surprising people of my Latino roots; it gives me another element of mystery and surprise. I also feel like not enough people embrace their hair texture. Men usually shave it off, and women usually perm, braid, heat and weave the fuck out of it. So I decided that it would be nice to see someone appreciate the textures their hair could achieve. I thought “why don’t I be that one person?” considering that when I walk wherever, I’m usually the only one with a fro. And when I see someone else with a curly fro, it’s usually a wig. The message of this image is to tell others to embrace their hair and make it look good for them if they find it ugly. Beauty lies not only in straight hair, but in many types of hair. But how would one know their hair can be made beautiful without altering its texture if they’ve been raised to take care of their hair how straight hair would normally be taken care of? How could they know if they were raised to try to emulate straight locks? If you think your hair doesn’t look good, find ways to make it look good. It’s now one learns more about how the roots that grow from their scalp works.

Black Tourmaline


Black Tourmaline is by far one of the most powerful protection crystal on this earth and is why many rely on it in times of need. Ancient magicians used Black Tourmaline to protect themselves from demons and evil spirits while they did magical works. In today’s society, this crystal is still being used as a source of protection. It works in the form of a psychic shield, both deflecting and dispelling negativity, evil entities, and destructive forces. This crystal can guard against radiation and environmental pollutants and is mostly useful in purifying and neutralizing one’s own negative thoughts and internal conflicts while turning them into positive, usable energy.

Psychologically, Black Tourmaline aids in understanding yourself and others, taking you deep into your self-conscious mind, promoting self-confidence and diminishing fear. It banishes any feelings of being a victim and attracts inspiration, compassion, tolerance, and prosperity. This crystal brings the mental processes, the chakras, and the energy field that surrounds every living thing into alignment. This is helpful in treating paranoia, and for overcoming dyslexia, as it improves hand-to-eye coordination.

Physically, Black Tourmaline releases tension, which makes it helpful in spinal adjustments. It increases energy flow, which makes it an excellent crystal for healing, energy enhancement, and the removal of blockages. This crystal defends against debilitating diseases, strengthens the immune system, treats arthritis, and provides pain relief.

Black Tourmaline is also a powerful grounding stone, providing a connection between Earth and the human spirit. Its supportive energy aligns the energy centers of the body and channels healing light throughout the system. It promotes a sense of power and self-confidence, allowing for a clearer, more objective view of the world. It is empowering to those who must live or work in challenging environments or when facing difficult circumstances.

Working with Black Tourmaline personally for me has definitely been a positive experience. Not only has it calm me down during states of agitation, but it also it has helped me to cope with the struggles of everyday life, as well as help find peace within myself in order to remain happy and collective.

Not an Angel

We’re trying to build a future. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? It is a saddening truth that many view building a future in terms of financial stability, rather than in terms of building themselves up for the future they deserve. It isn’t always about money; it’s about being a better person and allowing yourself to grow. Our education, our career choices, and our future goals should be equal parts chasing our personal interests, trying to become more enlightened, and building financial stability.

Sometimes, while we chase our goals, we lose sight of ourselves. We push our bodies and our minds, but we forget to challenge our emotional growth. William Shakespeare’s King Henry VIII reminds me to focus on striving to become a better person. The quote I most often recite when reminding myself to build a better future states, “we all are men, / in our own natures frail, and capable / of our flesh; few are angels.” Human nature pushes us towards maintaining our survival; we react on instinct and seldom do we think through all of our actions and their consequences. Like the quote, our natures are sometimes “frail,” we give in to temptation and we make poor decisions; we are impulsive, and spontaneous, and we do not always think things through, especially our future. We push our bodies to stay up studying or wake up early for classes, and for those of us who love the fields we choose, it’s worth it. However, for some, who are chasing money rather than following their intellectual interests, it becomes an exhausting experience, which tears individuals down both mentally and physically. We attend institutes of higher education to become better people, to find a way to make a difference in society. the important thing is that while we aspire to find the means to make a difference, we also manage to make a difference to ourselves, to afford ourselves the opportunity to grow and become better people than we were yesterday.

While we are not angels, neither in their pure angelic innocence, or in their fierce avenging form, we make mistakes, but at the end of the day we try to become better people. We try to make a difference. We want to prove to ourselves that we have it in us to create a brighter future. Many stories over the centuries describe the fall of Lucifer by conveying the fallen angels as jealous beings who envied humans for their free will; their ability to choose for themselves. We are not angels; it is our mistakes that help us grow, that teach us about life and humanity, it is our mistakes that teach us to become better individuals. We can make our own choices; our minds are our own, as are our futures. Think through your choices and try to make the choice that betters you as an individual. You can make a greater difference by bettering yourself than you can by chasing finances.
