Favorite Vegetable Soup :)

I will definitely insert a picture soon! Warm soup is such a hearty, wonderful comfort food especially during the cold winter months, however this soup is also good cold…I love it this way in the warmer months. I do think it is a matter of taste and choice. For me I love this soup warm or cold. This recipe is not only delicious and filling, it is also nutritious, and we all know that nutrition is a very important part of everyone’s diet. Here I have to stop for a moment and explain the word DIET as I use it. In my Blog diet means a way of life..an eating style that is healthy, nutritious and filling. Not a strict way of eating that leaves you hungry, miserable and wanting to binge! I will be posting a variety of recipes that you can tweak to fit your life style and taste. I would like to share one of my favorite recipes that was introduced to me by my sister Cindy while visiting her in NH. At that time I devoured many many bowls of this delicious soup and brought the recipe home with me. I wish I could say that this Soup was my idea but it is Cindy’s creative genius that developed it…I usually make this soup up in a big stock pot and freeze all but 2 servings (that I gobble up within a day) in glass jars for future (very close future) meals. It freezes well and tastes just as good if not better when it’s thawed!
I use as much organic as possible. I really don’t measure my veggies out but will approximate what I use…..

“Favorite” Vegetable Soup

3 large carrots cubed (I use my chopper large cubes)
2 stalks celery diced
1 large onion diced
1 small red bell pepper diced
1/2 small head of green cabbage (chopped or you can use 1/2 to 3/4 bag of coleslaw mix)
4 large handfuls of baby spinach
16 oz of your favorite mushrooms sliced
4 cups of vegetable stock
2 medium tomatoes diced
2 Tablespoons of jalapenos chopped (you can substitute a can of diced chile tomatoes for the above two ingredients)
1 can of stewed tomatoes
2 minced garlic cloves or 2 to 3 cubes Dorots frozen chopped garlic
2 teaspoons dried Basil or 2 to 3 cubes Dorots frozen chopped basil
2 tablespoons Herbes de Provence
Several grinds of black pepper
1 teaspoon Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Olive, Coconut or oil of your choice

Dice onions, celery and red bell peppers
Chop carrots
Slice mushrooms and cabbage

Add oil to stock pot and heat. Saute onions, celery, carrots, mushrooms and red bell peppers over low heat for about 8 minutes. Add broth, cabbage, spinach all tomatoes, garlic, basil, Herbs de Provence, salt and pepper. Be a little wild and crazy add a big pinch or two of cayenne! Bring everything to a boil and then turn it down to simmer for 20 to 30 minutes and voila you have a wonderful delicious nutritious meal. I hope you will try this soup and enjoy it as much as I do.
Until next time…
Love, Peace and Health!



Nuummite 3.8 Billion Years Old~Another recently discovered Stone

At close to 4 Billion years old, Nuummite is the oldest Stone on this planet! This is another recently appearing Stone for the new Energy Shift…

Historic Facts:

The name Nuummite is derived from the Municipality of Nuuk, where the stone was discovered in 1982. Nuummite is an extremely rare mineral with a rather old age. Nuummite is a gemstone formed from a mixture of two minerals from the orthoamphibole group: anthophyllite and gedrite.The colors vary somewhat between reddish, greenish, and bluish hues, sometimes even within the same lamella. It is composed of Magnesium, Iron, Silicon, Oxygen and Hydrogen.
By virtue of its age Nuummite is unique – there quite simply is no other comparable material of the same age anywhere on earth.
Nuummite is of volcanic origin and was formed about 3 billion years ago. The area of Nuuk where Nuummite occurs is the so-called ‘Isuakasia’ iron ore, the origin of which dates back almost four billion years. Nuummite has been used rather widely for untold centuries as beads and ornamental stones. The Isuakasia, where it’s obtained, is situated close to the Inland Ice Cap which is very difficult to access. For this reason combined with their rarity, these minerals will never become available in large quantities.
It can be found in Spain and southwest of Douglas, Converse County, Wyoming, USA. A lot is found mainly in Greenland in difficultly accessible places.

Healing and Metaphysical Properties:

It’s Healing and Metaphysical properties are wonderful. I was so drawn to this Stone I just had to purchase a few…1 for me and 4 to sell in the store. The Nuummite that I purchased was mined in Greenland and looks like humming-bird eggs. Although they are small they have enormous Energy and I must repeat enormous Energy. When I first held my Nuummite I felt as though I was being pulled into an Energy Vortex….I’m not sure if it was another Dimension or another Time or even another Place….I have to say I was blown away by such a small Stone having such Power. I should realize by now that size has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Power of a Stone.

Metaphysically this is a powerful stone that can bring an understanding of the awesome power of the void and the bring us an understanding of all the potentials of creation. Used in meditation
This is a wonderful Stone that can be used in general healing and in tissue regeneration. It has been used to relieve pain and discomfort associated with headaches and degenerative disease. Nuummite can be used to disperse infections, to purify the blood and kidneys, and to regulate insulin production. It can also be used in the treatment of disorders of the throat, the vision, and the eyes; it has been used to clarify and to strengthen the eyesight and the speech. It is an excellent stone for the stimulation of the triple-burner meridians as defined by acupressure/acupuncture specialists. It can also be used to stimulate circulation, to assist in the recovery from Parkinson’s disease, to treat disorders of the central nervous system, to treat disorders of the brain, to stimulate mental acuity, and to reduce anxiety and stress. It can also help to protect against the negative vibrations of pollutants, at the physical level, via the creation of an energy field which it builds within the aura.

Nuummite is a ‘Stone of Meditation’, the perfect Stone to be used in meditation and deep relaxation practices. Through these practices Nuummite can assist us with psychic experiences and particularly with past or alternate lives. It can take us deep within the subconscious to access other times and existences. It is an excellent grounding stone as well as a protective stone.
Nuummite is also said to help in the recognition of the things that are needed in life and aids in the letting go of what is not, assisting us to find our own inner power and help us to achieve self-mastery.

Nuummite’s Energy brings us so many possibilities: inner strength, depth of spirit and a calm reflective nature, It teaches us to see with our hearts, and reminds us that all limitations, bonds and restraints in our lives are illusions, making it much easier to let them go. This magnificent Stone can also stimulate the intellect, and aid in memory loss and recall.
What do you think, what has your experience been with this incredible little Stone…
Until next time,
Blessings in Light


Super 7 or Sacred 7 or the Melody’s Stone

It has been quite some time since my last blog and for that I apologize. Time just seems to get by me…More than that Life just seems to happen……..and happening it has been doing double time over the last several months…and it continues! Which I am not complaining about Life, mind you, as I am very happy to be alive! I have cleaned out every cupboard, closet and room in my house and now it’s time to get back to uploading products into my store as well as adding information here with a new blog hopefully every week or even a couple of times a week. My sister Theresa has taught me so much in the last few months that I think my head might just explode! This information I will pass along to you in the weeks to come.
Today I would like to talk about the Super 7, Sacred 7 or Melody’s Stone. This Stone is truly amazing. It never needs to be cleansed or charged as it charges and cleanses itself. It is one of many NEW ENERGY stones becoming available to us at this time of Change. The Shift of Ages is upon us and the Sacred Seven Stone will help make this transition into the new energy shift a bit smoother.

This stone carries the spiritual and protective qualities of Amethyst, the grounding ability of Smoky Quartz, the energy-amplifying properties of Quartz, with Rutile, Goethite, Lepidocrosite and Cacoxenite . Rutile brings strength, love, ease in making transitions, and stabilize relationships of all kinds; Rutile also fine tunes intuition. Goethite facilities clairaudience and metaphysical abilities and communication. Lepidocrosite deepens intuition, promotes grounding, dissolves confusion and overcome negative thoughts and replacing them with unconditional love. Cacoxenite brings spiritual awareness; it also helps to overcome fear and clear stress.
The color of this stone is deep purple, orange, red and brown. It is transparent to opaque with Rutiles in different colors. The Rutiles are usually gray, black, brown and purple. Spiritually, this high vibrating stone is a spiritual powerhouse. Many pieces of Super 7 carry a spiritual being within them that links to the highest sources of guidance and inspiration so one need not go anywhere to obtain guidance. Meditating with it is a joy. Emotionally, it is a very soothing and nurturing stone .
This crystal activates wisdom and strengthens intuition; assist in finding solutions; and provide the inner strength to cope with different situations.
This Stone purifies, balances and energizes all the chakras and the auric bodies, aligning them to the highest spiritual vibrations.
It is a powerful stone for healing physical, intellectual and spiritual dis-ease. It opens all the spiritual gifts and enhances metaphysical working of all kinds.
This Stone is very good for harmonizing the body, stimulating the body’s natural healing system and healing cellular memory. Supports the immune system, skin and bone.
This Stone supports and heightens the vibration of any other crystals within its vicinity.
Lastly, it does not require any cleansing or re-energizing.
This is a wonderful and desirable crystal to have. It will surely enhance your well-being.
These high crystal energy stones have a vibration that will help metaphysical activities on a variety of levels. This energy aids spiritual and psychic workers to take their talents to the next level higher. Anyone who has already developed any psychic powers, will understand why many people prefer to call these Sacred Seven Stones.

The process of planetary ascension is being overseen by powerful beings in the spiritual realm… and they have created these stones to aid us. Super Seven stones have a highly spiritual vibration within them… that has the purpose of moving our planet to where it needs to be.
This energy brings many users to a point where they feel a strong internal push to make changes… and also to be of service to others… especially others who are on the same spiritual path and working to aid our planet.
Once you begin to use these stones and make a connection to an individual crystal… you may move your gifts to a new level. If you work with a Super Seven Elestial… you may find that you develop a stronger connection with spirit via the crown chakra.
How To Use Super Seven Stones
One of the best ways to use these stones is to meditate with them. The best uses are both in a psychic meditation and also keeping them close to you for extended periods. If you keep them close, you may find that their energy has a beneficial result, on many levels… for your personal healing. By sleeping with one of these stones under your pillow… you may awake feeling a deep sense of peace, harmony and contentment.
Use it in your daily crystal meditation… as by meditating with these stones you may find that many different psychic communication abilities may be accentuated and stimulated. As you continue to use Melody’s Stone regularly… the vibration of this stone begins to bring new levels of gifts into your awareness.
It is known to aid some people to be able to see auras… as well as increasing psychic abilities. This includes clairvoyance, telepathy, automatic writing, channeling, ESP, clairaudience and clairsentience … as well as increasing your intuition.
Wearing Super Seven is an excellent idea… as keeping this stone within your auric field is energetically stimulating.
These stones are often quite beautiful… and it is quite common for them to be crafted into quite extraordinary pieces.
Although some of the minerals in the stone are not always visible, there are many lovely stones with visible colors of Clear Quartz, Smokey Quartz and Amethyst Crystals. Within some of the stones it may be possible to see the inclusions of Rutile and Lepidocrocite visible in the stone… and these make beautiful crystal jewelry.
Combining Super Seven With Other Stones
These stones combine beautifully with most other stones, as they vibrate strongly within all chakras. These stones are potent combined with high crystal energy stones. Any of the Super Seven stones… but particularly the Elestials may be combined with the high vibration stones with excellent results.
In particular you might choose to use them with Moldavite, Phenacite, Natrolite, Herderite, Tiffany Stone and White Azeztulite… as all of these stones have a high vibration that will move your spiritual growth to a new level.
They will work with any one of the stones that make up part of their vibration… and if used that way they will work to accentuate the aspects that you most need to be emphasized.
As they carry a strong Amethyst vibration… they are extremely beneficial combined with any of the violet flame crystals.
For excellent healing results you may choose to combine them with Sugilite, Purpurite, Tanzanite Crystals, Pink Lazurine, and Amethyst Crystals.

This is another wonderful Stone whose energy will help us to make the transition into the new Energy Shift a much easier one.
Until the next time…
Blessings in Light


Quantum-Quattro Silica~New Energy for a New Age~

This incredibly beautiful and rare stone first arrived on the gemstone market around September 1996. This is one of the “New Energy” Stones presently becoming available as their energies can now be accessed by many Healers on our Planet. There is no doubt that a Major Shift of Consciousness is currently taking place. This unusual stone is a recent find and found only in Namibia, Africa. The variety of colors and combinations in each piece is infinite and every piece is different.
Quantum-Quattro Silica is a combination of royal blue shattuckite, robins egg blue chrysocolla, forest green dioptase, in Smokey quartz with pastel light green malachite swirling together in a vibrant mix of colors rarely seen together. This is a grouping of minerals only seen combined naturally in quantum. Namibia is the only known location in the world for this new mineral find.

This Stone is an immune system builder that is able to work within the DNA structure and cellular level to re-polarize and magnetically open the gateways to God’s direct healing light. It is effective in healing past grief induced trauma that is locked within the emotional energy field and the body’s cells, causing pain in both areas. It can and will align all energy bodies, all chakras—both on the body and above and below it—if it is used with sincere prayer, and peaceful meditation.
Used in conjunction with the sun’s rays from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. will bring the greatest physical healing.
Used from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. will bring the greatest emotion healing, especially on full, new, and moonless nights.
Placed on the Third Eye will bring mental clarity and spiritual insight in angelic and earthly realms, and in a most non-judgmental and personally insightful way.

Quantum-Quattro Silica known also as the “Millennium Stone”:

Metaphysically, will help to pull us through the changes to come !!!

Heals past grief and relieve past trauma.

With prayer and meditation, will align all chakras …

Radiates its energy and its beauty!

Is a “must” for Crystal Healers and those spiritually awakening at this time.
Is said to have the ability to align all of the chakra points on the body as well as those above and below. Some believe that the stone was revealed to us now as we approach the year 2012 and the start of the Mayan 6th World, where we may create the ideal world we desire, if we are work with a peaceful mind, careful to work as one, and do not allow negativity to interfere.

Is relatively rare and highly collectible amongst crystal healers.

Grounds and protects, clears and absorbs all forms of energy, releasing it to the Earth. Quantum Quattro Silica is a powerful balancing crystal, balancing the mind, body and spirit, dissolving emotional disturbance, fear and sadness into acceptance and calmness.

Stimulates the heart, throat and third eye chakras and is a crystal of truth, communication and intuition and has a deeply peaceful, loving and protective energy.

Releases blockages of repressed negative emotions, and provides inner strength in times of prolonged stress, provides for spiritual maturation and supports transformation.

Can be used to stimulate healing of any dis-ease, as its function is to harmonize the higher vibrational energies of the aura, light body or subtle body. It is believed that physical dis-ease is a consequence of dis-harmony in the energies of the subtle body.
And this is what I have researched for a most extraordinary stone in most extraordinary times..
Until next time…Blessings in Light
This stone is truly amazing!

How Do Crystals Heal & Choosing a Crystal: Who Really Does The Choosing?

Today’s Blog will be very short, but I thought it was an important subject. If you have more information, a comment or an experience you would like to share please let me know either by email: roxannecummins@yahoo.com or leave a comment. Either way I would love to hear from you 🙂

How Do Crystals Heal?

Crystals heal through vibration. They vibrate at a certain frequency. Health, Harmony and Balance within the body ALSO vibrates at a certain frequency as does sickness and dis-ease. Putting a Crystal or Crystals on the body for a healing, carrying them in your pocket or wearing them (necklace, ring, bracelet) helps the body resonate to that frequency thus helping the body to heal itself.

How to choose a Crystal

I believe that the crystal that you purchase OR the one that is given to you knows where it is going and has chosen you long before you receive it.

You are the second one to know which crystal is for you.
The crystal will make itself known to you in many, many different ways! The shape or color may catch your eye or touch your heart. Perhaps it’s the type, qualities or the properties that have attracted you. You may feel a tug, pull or sensation somewhere in your body. You may be used as the instrument of delivery. We all know that there are those walking around in their lives asleep…that is where the “delivery person” comes in.

Each Crystal knew all those who would be their “Keeper”, “Guardian”, “Student”, “Delivery Person” or “Apprentice” when they were being created either within the Earth or among the Stars. Never worry that you will choose the wrong Crystal or that you won’t find your Crystal for It will ALWAYS find its way to you. When a crystal has chosen you…to guide you , assist with healing or whatever, you will become captured with love.
Until Next Time…

My Experiences with Sodalite and It’s healing qualities

Sodalite is a stone whose properties I have only just become aware of in the past few months. It is a gorgeous stone that can range in color from a deep dark to a very light blue with white marbled through it. I was drawn to this stone in particular because I had been having a terrible time sleeping at night. I just couldn’t get comfortable…tossing and turning for hours. Then once I was lucky enough to fall asleep, I would wake up several times during the night.

My sister and I purchased several strands of semi-precious stones to make energy jewelry, bracelets and necklaces for our online store Whole Body Healing44. I did some research into all of the stones that were new to me and found that Sodalite’s qualities included help with insomnia. Needless to say I wanted to experiment with this wonderful bit of information so I, of course, wore my natural chip Sodalite strand to bed. To my utter shock and surprise, I woke up in the morning to find that I had fallen asleep within minutes after my head hit the pillow. I really did not expect such dramatic results the very first time I wore this stone to bed! This was my first Miracle!

The next miracle that I was privy to with this wonderful stone happened several nights later. I was in my office and had been working on the computer for several hours doing descriptions and uploading pictures into the store. My shoulders were aching severely so I decided it was time for bed. My Sodalite strand was on a piece of Selenite in the office being cleansed and energized. I picked it up from the Selenite slab and put it on before leaving the office to go to bed….I was shocked because instantly…yes believe it or not….instantly…the pain in my shoulders was gone! I had no idea that Sodalite was a pain reliever!! I did not find that information in any of the resources that I used regarding the properties and healing qualities for Sodalite.

I also found out that I can link up to the energy in my Sodalite necklace the night I spent at my sister-in-laws house and didn’t have my “Sleeping Aid” with me :). What I did was meditate and visualized the Sodalite necklace around my neck and asked that I be blessed with it’s energy. I of course realized that this meditation had worked when I woke up in the morning refreshed with the understanding that I had fallen asleep quite easily the night before.

Sodalite is also a stone who’s energy aids the digestive system. I have found out through a visit to my Acupuncturist’s that my Digestive system is experiencing a bout in low energy. As I have been wearing my Sodalite strand to bed almost every night, I will see how my Digestive system is doing on my next visit.

Theresa had a similar experience with the Sodalite easing pain she was experiencing in her joints. Wearing the Sodalite stopped the pain. I find this to be so wonderful!

If you have had any experiences with this amazing healing stone, please let us know. We love sharing stories about Crystals and how they have helped others 🙂

Following is some information I have gathered researching this extraordinary Stone:
