ONLINE MEDITATION CIRCLE on Mixlr
Date of broadcast: November 5, 2014
It’s a pleasure today to share with you information about the beautiful crystal called Kunzite and the Tarot Card – Four of Cups.
Intuitive Development Tip ~ Know your PsyIQ ~ Clairalience means clear smelling – (base chakra) – Smells activate so much knowing within our bodies – it helps us fight or flight! Someone who is Clairalient is able to smell odours without a physical source. Have you ever noticed smelling something that isn’t there? When my deceased aunt comes to visit, I smell her specific brand of Menthol cigarettes; my father smells like a specific tree.
Exercise to develop your clairalience ~ Sitting in your garden, cooking dinner, standing at the train station. Ask your intuition to receive any messages with clarity and then breathe through your nose. What do you smell? What memories and associations are triggered for you? Is there a smell that doesn’t belong? This is a message!
Crystals with Rosie
Kunzite is our crystal for today. Kunzite is a relatively new addition to crystal collections. Discovered 120 years ago, this crystal may be found in pink, lilac, green, yellow or white. It may also be transparent or opaque. It is known as the Woman’s Stone, Balance Stone and Stone of Emotional Healing. With strong protective and truth-keeping energies, Kunzite helps you connect with Divine Energy.
Named for the mineralogist and jeweller George Frederick Kunz who first catalogued it in 1902. This pink stone has been found in a number of locations including the USA, Brazil, Madagascar, Myanmar, Australia, Pakistan and Afghanistan. This is a variety of Spodumene. The green and yellow-green Kunzite stones are called Hiddenite.
Genuine Kunzite is quite pale in colour, with natural darker shades being higher in value. There are some heat-enhanced varieties on the market. All Kunzite is prone to fading in direct sunlight.
Kunzite is a Gift of Love from the Universe. Wear kunzite to be blessed with good fortune. Its soft pastel colours symbolize purity. It can also be a sign of new life and is sometimes regarded as a symbol for pregnancy.
As the Woman’s Stone, Kunzite is beneficial for helping Mothers (human or animal) to connect with their offspring.
As the Balance Stone, Kunzite (especially when placed directly on the body) balances the chakras easily and gently.
As the Stone of Emotions, Kunzite helps those who have difficulty functioning in their reality. With its high lithium content, it alleviates depression and anxiety. It helps those who are suffering from loss, grief, suffering or heartbreak. In particular, it is beneficial for restoring relationships on all levels. For empaths or those who are requiring detachment, Kunzite provides an emotional buffer to give your emotions ease.
As a travel crystal, Kunzite soothes road rage and calms difficult passengers in your vehicle.
As a mediation crystal, Kunzite helps your body, mind and spirit connect, relax and thrive within the connection.
Caring for Kunzite:
Before use, Kunzite should be cleansed under warm running water. It can be recharged overnight nestled in a bowl of dry hematite stones.
“Pink Kunzite see into my heart
Release the past; Rejoice in today’s new start.”
Spiritually, they serve to guard your beliefs against doubt and can help you keep true to your ideals and cherished beliefs while reinforcing your strength of character. Guardian crystals can also protect your spirit during trying and difficult times.
Through its balancing and cleansing effect, Kunzite focuses attention on Spirit and removes obstacles energetically, emotionally and spiritually.

Discover the Tarot – Four of Cups
Our tarot card is the fourth card of the Cups Suit – the Four of Cups. All the Cup cards represent the element of WATER. This is your emotional flow ~ love, empathy, compassion.
What’s the first thing you notice when you look at this card? Where is your eye drawn? Make a note of your observation and ask: What does this mean to you? Where do you see this in your everyday life?
All the cup cards represent the element of WATER. This is your emotional engagement (or entanglement). As a motivational card, it reminds us that we are filled with emotion. How do you choose to fill your cup? The cup is a symbolic tool of the womb – the seat of all creation. It also represents the human soul.
If you are unable to find a version of the card, let me describe it to you. The four of cups shows a dark haired man sits with crossed arms and legs under a tree. There are three cups in front of him. A white hand and arm is emerging from a single cloud – offering an new cup. The sky is a clear blue otherwise.
Let’s take a moment to break down what can be seen within the card and interpret it.
Cloud – inspiration, ideas,
Tree – protection, fertility, connection between earth and sky, “reaching for the sky”
Hand – The hand of fate or of ‘God’; grace; a ‘hand up to help’
Man sitting cross legged – meditation, contemplation, connection, rest
Cups – soul, spirit, creative force
Hilltop – taking the higher ground to gain a clear view
Clear Sky – air and water; emotions and thoughts become as one.
Perspective, Understanding, Contemplation
- Am I seeing with ‘ego’ or through the eyes of Unconditional Love?
- What am I holding myself back from?
- Am I willing to take hold of what the Universe so willingly offers me?
