    Hello,
    My name is Jessica, and i was hoping that you could help me answer a very important question.
    Am I turning my house into a portal by circling it with gem stones?!
    I have labradorite circling my entire house. inside the circle are amethyst, mainly selenite and rose quartz. I cleansed the stones in the blood moon rain water, here in new orleans. And since then, have been sensing a spirit in my home. I sage frequently, and began the circle to help ground myself and expand my aura. I guess i am dabbling in something i was unaware of, and was wondering if you could shed light on my subconscious mind.
    Thank you for your time and energy,
    Jessica

      Hi Jessica, I don’t think you created a portal. Some people are able to attract energies good or bad. Labradorite may not necessarily be able protect your home as well without other things in place. Cast a salt circle around the outer ring of your labradorite. A great additive to put between some stones is Pyrite. It absorbs negative energy and holds it. The salt circle itself becomes a barrier to keep unwelcomed things at bay. Good luck, Aldora.

    Hello, I have a question regarding pyrite. As you may or may not know there are multiple colours of pyrite, most commonly gold, silver and black.

    Do you know if these variations have different effects/uses? Thank you for your time.

    • Aldora says:

      Hi Samuel, Pyrite (iron sulfide) – While silver (cubic iron pyrite) is less commonly known – gold and silver pyrite hold the same energies because of their luster and same you can expect an increase in your levels of energy and vitality. The important thing is to keep the stone within your aura. Pyrite’s streak is green to brownish black so I’m not sure where you are finding black pyrite unless you are referring to the streaks? Unless you are talking about Cattierite or Vaesite which have similar structures to pyrite but more known to be made up of nickel sulphides? Aldora

    Each gemstone has an energy that can attract the attention of supernatural beings either bad or good.
    They are happy to reside within the gem stones to increase their energy. Some of them might bring good and very helpful but some are just bringing bad things that can harm the health, brings bad luck and tranquility of our lives.
    To get positive energy, positive affirmation should be given in accordance with the intent and purpose we put the stone.
    Another way is to ask the help of a psychic to lock the stone with a positive energy only. This is usually done before the stone is placed.

    Affirmation

    O, gemstone, very beautiful stone, stone which gives health (specify your wishes) and connecting with the divine energy, pull the energy of the universe and go into this stone. (gemstone should be in put in the palm of the hand).
