How often have you carried crystals and stones in a pocket or your purse in order to keep their positive energies with you? I am sure the majority of those who read this blog have done this at least a few times in their lives. I myself have done this countless times and I also wear jewelry that features my favorite stones and crystals.
Some of us do not have easy access to a shop that sells stones and we may be hesitant to purchase them online as we’re not sure about the quality of the product we would be receiving. The solution to this dilemma is now here in the form of Carry Me Crystals: Chakra Clearing & Oracle Card Deck by Elizabeth & Peter Jarvis, and the channeling of Yeshua by Joanie Eisinger. This oracle deck is meant to serve as a substitute when the actual stones are not readily or easily available to you.
The Carry Me Crystals consists of 44 cards, each depicting a different crystal or stone. The cards are accompanied by a 6 x 9” full color 96-page guidebook. The cards themselves measure 3 ½ x 2 ½”. Each card contains a full color photograph of a particular type of stone or crystal on one side and a brief description of its qualities on the opposite side. My favorite is Amethyst because purple is my favorite color. The Amethyst card reads, “You are welcoming energy and Light is shining through your crown chakra. Please use when sad and needing re-energizing.” The guidebook has a 2-page spread on Amethyst and explains it is the stone of both the third eye and crown chakras. Various qualities and uses of Amethyst are noted.
The cards and guidebook are housed in a 6 x 9 x 1 ½” box with hinged lid and magnetic closure. It can be stored standing on its end like a book. This is one of the hallmarks of Schiffer deck publications.
The cards have a semi-gloss matte finish to them. They are not laminated so I would actually not recommend that you carry them around with you as you would a real stone. Instead, what I have done with my set is to keep one to three cards visible and I look at them and contemplate the properties of those particular stones and how they pertain to my life and my chakras as I go about my day. I am sure to display the cards I have chosen for my day in a prominent location so that I see them as I pass nearby several times a day.
Another use I have for the Carry Me Crystals is to ask what I need to work on. I then will draw 1 – 3 cards and read their descriptions in the book. I can always relate to some aspect of the properties of the stone or I may realize that I need whatever energy that stone possesses for something I need to work on in my life. I will then display those cards and refer to them throughout the day or even for a few days at a time. I will also draw 1 – 3 cards if I am feeling out of sorts and I ask which chakras need work or healing. I am always amazed when I pull 2 cards depicting stones or crystals that relate to the same chakra. A few times all three cards have related to the same chakra so I know for sure which chakra needs the most work at that particular time.
The Carry Me Crystals is a good reference to own. It not only depicts very clear photos of each stone (the same photo that is depicted on the card is also used for the guidebook), but it also tells you how that stone can work for you and your chakras. I took the guidebook with me when I went to a rock shop recently and used it as my personal shopping list. The guidebook was a huge help to me as it also helped me to assess the quality of the stones I saw in person based on the photographs in the guidebook.
I recommend the Carry Me Crystals to anyone who is interested in stones and crystals. It makes for a nice little reference and as I noted earlier, the cards can be set out where you will see them throughout the day or carried with you in a wallet or purse so that the energy of the stones can affect you in positive ways through their photographs.
