Someone recently asked me "Do you actually use your own energy clearing cushions?" "Where do I NOT use them?" was my response. Yes, I use them, all the time.
I have one tiny one in my purse, one by my bedside, one with my jewelry, one in front of the TV/electronics, and several with my stones and art. To my credit, I try to use ones that are a little cattywampus, admittedly, I am not skilled at sewing. I love that word.
I would use one for every crystal I have, but then I would have none to sell :). Honestly, when I placed some of my larger stones around the house, my husband did not really like them, they "looked like clutter". Then I took a few matching cushions and displayed the stones and he thinks they look better, "more like a display than clutter." This works for me- now I don't have to walk around the house and clear them. Just dusting ;).
These cushions work. I spend a lot of time ensuring that the combination of what is inside along with my intention while making them, created a strong potent pillow.
~ Makes displaying stones look nicer in your home, more professional in a work place
~ On that note, if you want to have a stone on your desk at work but don't want to explain why, a cushion makes it look like decoration :)
~ Clears anything with crystals, gemstones, metals- continuously
~ Takes away the guess work of "does this stone need sunlight, moonlight, water, salt, or..... to clear it?"
~ Helps clear your personal space. Hold to your heart center and feel it pulling out unwanted energies.
~ Never travel without one. Place on the pillow/bedside of your hotel bed.
~ Energy workers: these are great to place on chakras or areas of the body that need help. Similar to a hot stone massage, leave the cushion on the area you just worked on for additional support.
The list goes on and on. I had one person tell me they are not full enough. I do add a little more sand (very clean, purified sand) than I used to for just that reason, but I want them to be very "shapable" so that all kinds of stones stay put and you can form them to body parts. Some people don't like a lot of weight on their body, so keeping these lighter works well for energy workers. Plus, they are potent, so they don't actually need a lot.
I hope this helps you see some ways to use these cushions. I love them, I truly do.
"Crisp. Clean. Light. The energy that I feel coming off the clearing cushions is amazing. They are little pillows radiating peace."
When I started making them, I wanted a way to display my crystals. I also struggle with how to energetically clear all my stones; I use them all the time and I have A LOT of them. In looking for ways to do that, I noticed that people either have display pillows or cases, and separately ways to clear them. Darling little pillows with sacred geometry, for example. And they are expensive.
So the Clearing Cushion was born. It took awhile to get the right combination of ingredients with which to fill them. Some combinations were too strong, some kind of flat. I made prototypes with all kinds of combinations, all white and quite frankly pretty ugly. This was so I could just gauge their energetic properties. The end result are pillows that can be small and still be mighty (like my Chihuahua Mabel!)
We recently took a road trip out to visit family. We were in the car for 3 days, staying at 2 different hotels, both ways. So I decided to bring along a clearing cushion. I brought it in the car in my carry-along bag. And then into the hotel rooms. When staying with family, I put it on the bedside table. It was marvelous! It was like having my own little energetic vacuum tidying up before and after me. I felt like I was walking in my own bubble of clean air. I placed it on my pillow (I travel with my own) on the hotel bed and left it there to do its job while we went out for dinner. When I came back it was as if the whole room had been smudged.
I also used it as I originally intended; I placed my gemstone jewelry on it each night for clearing. It was easy to keep track of my many pieces of jewelry and I knew they were in a safe spot each night. I have to say I am very proud of these little workhorses. And now that I make them with all sorts of fun fabrics, they are more delightful than I had hoped for.
CLEARING CUSHIONS – potent little pillows that clear, protect, & display your crystals… plus much more!
I am so excited to announce my new offering – clearing cushions. I have been trying to figure out a way to store and display my crystals. I admit, I have a lot… It is difficult to put out so many stones, but packing them away in a box, drawer, etc. did not work either. I want to see them, admire them, and use them in my healing practice.
Then there are the times when I gather them up and put them outside on a full moon when I know there is no change of rain, to clear them. I have to think “can this one get wet?” “Can I place this one on salt?” “Does this one fade in the sun?” Not an easy, effective, or really even sane way to go about clearing and charging our beloved stones.
So… I created a display case myself to hang on the wall after seeing pre-made ones were too expensive (no offence to the artists who make them!) I like it, although the space for these is still small. It still feels like their energies are bumping into each other. And they still need frequent clearing since I use them when creating my artwork.
When I was in an amazing crystal/stone/gemstone store the other day, many of the larger ones were on these fun velvet pillows. They held the stone safely in place and look nice. On a wall next to them were lavender filled eye pillows. Huh. Then it hit me! Combine them, and add stones and plants to them to clear the stones. Once I started experimenting, I realized that the stones used could clear, but also charge the item being displayed.
I tried many different combinations of clearing stones, sage, lavender, sacred geometry, etc. My first attempts were good, but not cost effective at all, and I assumed this is why no one has done it yet. In order to make a profit I would have to charge a lot per pillow. And again, I have a LOT of stones, so if you are like me, this was too expensive an idea.
Upon further research and experimenting, I realized that quartz is programmable. And quartz sand is inexpensive. I also found that Selenite, one of the main stones I knew I had to use, is very soft and can be crushed very easily. Now if white sage just grew in Central Oregon… I am still not convinced that our sage is not just as good. I think the Californians might just have us all believing their sage is the best…
Since I already knew how to clear and program stones through smudging, fire clearing, energetic programming, and sacred geometry, I knew doing this for the pillows would work perfectly. And it does. A little help from the angels, gratitude, and a sewing machine, and viola! Here are my new clearing cushions!
The first round come in small (3×4) medium (4×5) and large (5×5 or more). Custom ones can be made too. I have many patterns and solid colors, GO HERE to view them all.
