Earth Share | Connecting with Ancient Egypt

The knowledge of the universe that Ancient Egypt embodied has influenced billions of people over the centuries. There are many legends as to its founding, including the intervention of extra-terrestrials, of the gods, and of the migration to Egypt of the priests of Atlantis at the time of that island’s destruction. It is said that most of the energy workers on earth today have, at some time, had a significant Egyptian incarnation in which they were trained in energetic techniques by some mystic order. Our resonance with this culture runs deep in us all.

There are many ways to connect to the energy of Ancient Egypt. Here are some of our favorites. You can find even more throughout our website and store.



The goddess Ma’at is the mother goddess in Egyptian tradition.  She personifies cosmic order and harmony as established by the Creator God at the beginning of time and is in charge of truth and justice. Ma’at regulates the stars and the seasons.  Often confused with her daughter Isis, Ma’at’s symbol is an ostrich feather, which is in her headdress or held in her hand. Ma’at uses this feather to weigh the scales of justice in the hall of judgement. Ma’at weighs the lightness and purity of heart of the deceased against her feather to determine the deceased’s fate in the afterlife.

Wearing a pendant of Ma’at or having a likeness of her will help you connect to her assistance in legal matters and to connect to the divine balance of the universe.



Thoth is the Ancient Egyptian god of wisdom, patron of scribes, and the divine mediator. Thoth is the Greek name given to him, he was also known as Djeheuty. Shown as a man with an ibis head, Thoth has also been depicted as a baboon. Thoth is known as the god of the moon, of magic, and is given credit for inventing writing, medicine, magic, and many of Ancient Egypt’s civil & religious practices.

Thoth is a good mentor for energy workers, those committed to earth transformation, and are in the arts. It is said that Thoth led a group of priests from Atlantis prior to the destruction of that island, and set up the priestly class in Egypt, the mystery schools that existed there, and initiated much of the high level of culture of that civilization. Thoth (known in Atlantis by various names including Valmiki) emerges in different forms throughout earth history. These lifetimes of earth action have included Hermes/Mercury, Merlin, Parcelsus and St. Germain.

Ancient Egyptians mined minerals and gemstones over five thousand years ago. Used in jewelry and household items, CLTEgyptianmany of these mines are still in use today.

Lapis Lazuli –  Prized higher than gold, a piece of Lapis Lazuli was often offered to a teacher by a student upon initiation into a mystery school or priesthood. This stone represents mastery of consciousness. The Ancient Egyptians had a practice of burying a Lapis Lazuli scarab with their dead, believing it provided a means of protection. Lapis was also ground and the powder was used as make-up.

Peridot – One of the stones that stands between spirit and matter. It is formed by volcanic action, when spitules of melted earth are thrown up into the air solidfying there before dropping back to earth. A primary Western source of peridot is found on the tiny island of Zabargard, which is owned by Egypt. Peridot is a positive stone for healers to wear, as it provides a shield of protection.

Malachite – This gemstone was ground up and used as make-up in Ancient Egypt, as well as jewelry. Malachite is a powerful grounding stone that clears obstructions.

Garnet – An ancient talisman, Garnet was used for protection and to promote good health. Garnet assists with creativity and balances energy.

Sterling in copperCopper was the first metal used by Ancient Egyptians. Mined over five thousand years ago, they eventually mixed it with tin to create bronze. Mined east of the Nile river, copper was used in Ancient Egypt to make saws, dishes, trays, and as writing instruments, just to name a small portion of the items for which it was used.

ISIC – Flowing with the Solar Flares

Many of us at Crystal Life have found ourselves being pulled in all sorts of directions due to the solar flares that are occurring this year. While we understand that these flares bring up emotional and behavioral issues that must be addressed, it can be both difficult and pressing at times yet with an end result that is very beneficial and for the better good. Working through these emotional and behavioral blocks is a lesson in itself to remain centered through all of these changes.

This is a merkabah grid, designed by Tammy and myself, to help ease this process of change and growth.

Here’s what you’ll need:

(1) Malachite

(6) Unakite

(6) Yellow Calcite

Malachite is the center piece for this layout. Malachite works to ground spiritual energy to the earth. When we are experiencing stress, malachite absorbs negativity while it harmonizes and balances. Also an aid in transformation, it assists in being receptive to insight from your subconscious. From there it is easier to see what is blocking your spiritual growth by getting to the core of the problem.

A Merkabah is an energy field which can be two dimensionally displayed by intersecting two opposite facing equilateral triangles (3-sided pyramids if you are working on three dimensions). A Merkabah is the complete balance of duality, light and dark. There are two complete Merkabahs being utilized as the structure of this grid. The inner-most composed of unakite, while the outer being yellow calcite.

Unakite offers a calm and gentle energy, which is crucial to maintain in your energy field at this time. Much like the malachite in this case, unakite integrates light into the field revealing insights regarding said blockages. It helps to uncover the root cause of any dis-ease and allows it to surface in order for the user to create change and transformation in their life.

Yellow Calcite clears the personal field as well as the environment with the purity and power of our sun. Growth and development are accelerated when using this stone. Using yellow calcite alleviates emotional stress, and connects the emotions with the intellect. When this is achieved, a greater sense of emotional intelligence is attainable. The light in this crystal helps to overcome setbacks, which is what many of us may perceive to be happening with these life changes. Then we may understand that set backs are really stepping stones for another reality.

The entire earth is currently experiencing these shifts, so I highly suggest the use of this grid in efforts to better the ability to flow in these times of great change. While a grid is ideal because it will work with an entire space, it would be advisable to at least carry this three-stone combination in your pocket or medicine bag. Most of all, remember that life is beautiful. Even the bumpy parts serve a beautiful divine purpose.

Staff Speak – At the Root of Friendships

More than a handful of people over the week have mentioned that they feel alone or like they have no friends. So I decided to bring this up and offer some insights into friendships.

To be someone’s friend, you must first be a friend to yourself. This means putting your needs first and fulfilling your need for happiness. It helps to be honest about what you like to do, and what is actually being done. Do these two coincide? It helps to be honest about your feelings. Pay attention to feelings when around friends. Ask: Am I happy right now? Why or why not? Does being with this person feel good or not? If it doesn’t feel right, why?

Then depending on the answer, ask: Am I willing to change to continue spending time with the other person? If not, that is ok. If it felt good for a while and now it doesn’t, what is needed to make it better? Can it be made better? Is there a certain scenario that keeps playing out with each new friendship? What is your role in that scenario? How can that scenario be changed? If it can’t, should you chose to find new friendships that feel good?

Then there is the issue of feeling like you do not have any friends. Many people find themselves in this predicament when they are going through a major growth period, when they are changing dramatically. This is normal and is needed for the person to gel into a new vibration. When this happens, your vibration is changing and the people who you call friends may not be changing at the same pace.

With such a vibrational change, people more aligned with the old vibration slowly drop away. At the same time, new people compatible with your new vibration will start showing up in daily life. It is up the individual to take notice of the opportunities that are right there and reach out to these new friends and work on cultivating a friendship.

Some stones to help when the time feels right to reach out to friends (old and new) are emerald, jade, malachite, lapis, and watermelon tourmaline. Emerald helps enhance unconditional love and promotes friendship. Jade helps attract friendship. Malachite assists in releasing inhibitions and encourages expressing feelings and helps alleviate shyness. Watermelon tourmaline assists in activating the heart chakra and fosters friendship. Pick a stone that resonates and take time to meditate with it daily while focusing on friendship. These stones can also be worn as jewelry to keep that vibration in your energy field throughout the day.
