This therapeutic session is a perfect time to take stock of where you are in your life and what goals you have for your spiritual journey ahead.

In good times or bad, call on its incredible healing and restorative powers and bring positivity and prosperity into your life.
The Aventurine stone meaning is derived from the Italian word 'Aventura,'' which means 'by chance,'' an apt name for one of the luckiest stones in the world of crystal healing. Aventurine was used as a form of sparkling glass also known as goldstone, which was invented in the 18th century. Besides its beautiful and dazzling appearance, Aventurine also rocks when it comes to clearing negative thought patterns because it reconnects you to the Divine healing energy of the Earth and its life-giving elements that created this stone over the millennia.
AVENTURINE HEALING PROPERTIES
Aventurine properties are linked with the solar plexus chakra, which makes it a powerful gem for calming negative emotions such as anger that often gets stuck in the lower abdominal area. To harness these positive, healing vibes, place Aventurine on the heart and lower part of the stomach. While taking deep, relaxing breaths, feel the stone releasing negativity from your body and spirit and feel your aura being filled with a bright white light that encourages harmony and tranquility on your spiritual journey.
HOW TO MEDITATE
Daily meditation with healing gemstones is an excellent way to recharge and balance the chakras. Create a sense of harmony and wellbeing by including venturing properties into your everyday wellness routine. A gentle but powerful way to harness the energy of Aventurine is to take deep breaths while clearing the mind of any negativity. If you find this challenging, hold the stone in your hand and ask it to absorb toxic emotions while infusing your energy centers with its healing properties channeled from the miraculous minerals of the Earth. As you breathe in, feel the positive, healing force of Aventurine and breath out any negative feelings on the exhale. During your therapeutic session, feel invigorated by this gemstone as it absorbs negative energy and protects you from psychic attacks on your spiritual journey.
Because healing stones absorb negativity, it's important to cleanse your stones often with sage sticks by smudging the crystals until they are immersed in smoke. Alternatively, you can also cleanse and recharge your gemstones by placing them under the moonlight during a full moon or setting them in the soil of a healthy plant for several hours.
Another way to access the Aventurine stone benefits is by walking in the forest with your crystal while taking in deep, healing breaths filled with the life-giving oxygen of plants and trees. Called 'forest bathing,' this practice is further enhanced with Aventurine healing, which works to activate and open the heart chakras while you enjoy the simple beauty of nature.
An essential addition to your gemstone collection, Aventurine is not only beautiful and striking but also rocks when it comes to inviting prosperity and good fortune into your life. Wherever you happen to be on your spiritual journey, Aventurine is an excellent aid for bringing about higher consciousness and returning your spirit to its natural state of joy.
I was awakened by my friend at 8:00 AM in our second-floor room on Malapascua island. "Sefy, wake up. There are strong winds outside" he said. My mind was still groggy from sleep, and I felt the warmth of the blanket that had kept me cozy throughout the night. However, his words had weight to them, and we had been waiting for this day for three long days. We had spent six days on the island, enjoying its serene beauty and the stunning sunset views that painted the sky with new hues every evening.
The Philippines is a place that captures your heart with its enchanting islands that offer the perfect balance between adventure and tranquility, a much-needed balance for those on a hero's journey. And today, we were about to embark on our most significant adventure yet.
Carl Jung once said, "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." The universe follows the law of duality, and we can see its manifestation in nature in every aspect. Super Typhoon Yolanda was one such example. It was one of the most powerful tropical cyclones ever recorded in our current civilization, and it wreaked havoc on the Philippines. The typhoon was expected to hit at 10 PM, but it arrived much earlier, starting at 8 AM and lasting for two hours.
I remember feeling the fear take over me, deep in a cave, where the darkness seemed impenetrable. My legs were floating in half a meter of water, and the thin plaster ceiling was the only thing separating us from the chaos outside. I stood by the window, watching the wind gust at 300 mph, too fast for my eyes to follow. Fear gripped me, and I felt paralyzed until I slipped into a trance-like state. My brain could only register three thoughts, "I'm going to die," "I'm going to die in the Philippines," and "I haven't said goodbye to my family." However, my biological instincts were still hard at work, keeping me ready to fight or flee in a matter of seconds.
When my friend and I finally found a safe place to wait out the storm, we were both shaken to our core. It was as if a part of us had died that day. Walking around the island, I was in shock, taking in the surreal destruction that surrounded me. The darkness had descended upon the island, leaving behind no electricity, internet, clean water, or food. It seemed as if their entire world had crumbled.
As I passed by a lady sitting on the floor at the entrance of her store, now reduced to a pile of metal plates, she looked up at me with compassionate eyes, smiling. I was moved to tears, wondering how she could smile in the midst of such devastation. But then I realized that family was the most powerful value of all. In that moment, she looked at me like a mother, a sister, like I was family. And I understood that we are all brothers and sisters.
The vision for Healing Waves had been taking shape in my subconscious for years. And with your help, we can continue to shape that vision and make it a reality.
