Worried about the Covid-19 Virus?  Start here!

     The media is bombarding us with coverage of the virus pandemic and in amongst the perceived mayhem, many of us are looking for tools and inspiration to remain STEADY in these trying times!

     We at Jacobs Trading Ye Olde Rock Shop would like to extend love and positive vibes to all its customers in this time of stress and concern! Especially to our little ones who do not fully understand everything that is going on.

     Our customers health and safety is our top priority and we have implemented a much higher level of sanitizing in our store and online processing areas! Doors, bathrooms and heavier trafficked areas are being cleaned multiple times per day with disinfectant. Staff are instructed to wash their hands frequently throughout the day and stay home if they are sick.  We take extra care and attention with all our crystals to ensure they are fully charged and ready to assist you in your healing journey!

     Crystal Energy work is a tool many use to maintain and encourage better physical and mental health.  But please note, it is not a cure-all and it’s not a quick fix!  Think of it as a tool to balance and direct your body’s own inner healing guidance system.  By focusing on the energy of the crystals, you line up your own energy field with that vibration and align yourself at a higher level.  This positive energy focus promotes calmer thoughts, better sleep, stronger immunity and overall better health. 

     The crystals listed below are our personal recommendations for calming anxiety, stress reduction and energy protection.  If you already have these crystals at home, you can begin to raise your vibration immediately by keeping them close to you at all times.  To start, hold them in your hands and quiet your mind while you focus on the positive feelings you are receiving from the stone.   Feel the energy rise up from the crystal and wash over you like a rain shower.  You may feel tingling or goose bumps as you focus your attention, or you may just feel relief.  There is no right or wrong way to align with the positive energy of the crystals, and know that you cannot get it wrong!  Keep the crystals with you throughout your day if you can.  In a pocket or purse, or keep them next to you as you work or watch TV.  Move them to your bedroom as you sleep by putting them on a nightstand or under your pillow.

     The other recommendations we have for this stressful time is to be easy on yourself and your family!  Take a break from all the media coverage, as consistent focus on the negative only brings more negative into your life.  Take a walk, play a game, watch funny/uplifting television programs, pet your dog or cat, hug the people you live with and remember to smile!   Anything and everything you can do to raise the vibration of your spirit will help protect and calm you during any type of crisis!

As a great man once said, all you need is love!  Love is all you need! 

Stay Steady!

I’m wondering where you are located, and as I am in Vancouver BC, if it’s easy to get to you.
I’m wondering if you have any pink tourmaline

Thank you
