Happy 2016!

This year is going to be a wonderful year!  Don't we all think that to ourselves?  We make plans, write lists, set goals and so on.  This is the year I'm going to make things happen.  Well in the back of my mind right now, as I'm typing, I'm thinking I have go out and purchase some Powerball tickets.  Yep - the jackpot is up to 700 MILLION!  Can you believe.  There will be a few more financially blessed peps in the world after tomorrow night drawing.  But enough about that.  I want to talk about Pantone's 2016 Color of the Year = Rose Quartz.  Me so happy!  One beautiful color but one of my favorite stones.  Did you know Rose Quartz means The soft pink emanations of Rose Quartz comforts and heals any wounds the heart has suffered, penetrating the inner chambers of the Heart Chakra where emotional experiences are recorded and stored. It dissolves the sorrows, worries, fears and resentments suppressing the heart's ability to give and receive love, and replaces it with healing, comfort and inner nourishment. A deep sense of personal fulfillment and energy forms a new foundation where inner peace and contentment can become a personal reality. [Raphaell, 82-83]  You can read more here at CV Crystal Vaults web site.
