I have studied crystal healing for many years and have studied and been attuned to reiki levels one, two, and masters.

Lammas is the first of three harvests.

Lammas is also known as Lughnasadh and is the first of the three pagan harvest festivals. It is considered a time of giving thanks as the sun's strength begins to wane and the spring crops become ready for harvest. There is a feeling of abundance at Lammas, but it is important to remember the long winter that is to come and that many of the crops must be prepared and stored in preparation.

The bright summer days will now begin to shorten, and thoughts turn to reap the harvests of seeds sown earlier in the year. This may refer to the traditional harvest of corn, fruit, and vegetables but also to our own personal harvests of achievements and goals or any of our efforts that have led to better things in life. We can also look at the things that didn’t work out so well or failed and think about why this happened. As this is the first harvest, fertility symbols are often still present as well as rituals, symbols, and offerings to promote the continued success of the crops and life in general.

Crystals can be incorporated into Lammas celebrations in many ways. For example, they can be placed on your altar, used in rituals and spells or used in meditation.

This crystal is useful in stopping us from dwelling on problems in life and helps in finding a solution. It will help in seeing the bigger picture and gently releases feelings of oppression. Agate stones are a good choice of crystal for grounding and help to bring the emotional, physical and intellectual states into balance. They are soothing stones that are beneficial to anyone who doubts themselves or their abilities and would benefit from building their self-confidence. On an emotional level agates aid in overcoming negativity and sadness from heartache and hurt and give a person the courage to start over.
