Details

These Red Tiger Eye Maneki Neko Lucky Cats are very flashy.

This is the legend of the Maneki Neko:

In the 17th century, there was a rundown and poverty-stricken temple in Tokyo. The temple's priest was very poor, but he shared what little food he had with his pet cat, Tama.

One day, a wealthy and important man was caught in a storm while hunting and he took refuge under a big tree near the temple. While he waited for the storm to pass, the man noticed a cat beckoning him to come inside the temple gate. This was so startling that he left the shelter of the tree to have a closer look at this unusual cat. At that moment, the tree was struck by lighting.

As a result, the wealthy man became friends with the poor priest, and the temple became prosperous. The priest and his cat never went hungry again.

When Tama died he was buried in the Goutokuji Temple's cat cemetery with respect and love, and the Maneki Neko was made in honor of him. Place A Maneki Neko in your place of business, or your home to bring in good luck and visitors.

Maneki Neko is Japanese for "beckoning cat." The message he's holding says "Please come in. You are welcome!" and he is beckoning you with his paw.

This Kitty is hand carved from Red Tiger Eye.

Connecting with your Crystal

Welcome your new crystal into your home by setting aside a little one on one time for just the two of you! Sit with your crystal and feel its energy opening and connecting with your heart center. Find a special place to keep your crystal where you will see it often and be able to connect with it. Working with Crystals for Crystal Healing is a fun, easy way to elevate your personal energy and deepen your connection with Mother Earth. Each Crystal is unique and offers its own special gifts. See our Crystal Definitions page for more info on specific crystal types.

How to Activate your Crystal

Crystals love to work with a purpose! In general, they are already “Turned On” and busy doing their own thing: Elevating Energies and pumping out Good Vibes! This is their natural state. We can tap into these elevated energies and combine forces by working with our crystals to expand and elevate our own energies and to connect with our highest self. This is done through activation and will set a field of expanded energies that will help us in our daily lives as we practice and deepen this connection with our crystalline friends.

To begin an activation, clear your mind and sit quietly with your crystal. Connect with your heart center and through your heart center connect with the crystal you are holding. This crystal is sharing its love and light with you, as you share your love and light with your crystal.

Think of activation as the growing and expansion of energy layers. The first activation establishes a connection between the crystal and the user, creating the first layer. These layers continue to grow, for both ourselves and the crystal, as we continue to connect. This energy field becomes more stable over time as we continue to connect and reconnect.

Cleansing your Crystal

Stones of all kinds are energetically alive. Crystals and Gemstones carry their own vibrations and can be influenced by subtle energies and/or thoughts and actions taking place around them. Crystals also have the ability to be cleansed of influences that have touched them before or after they have come to you. When gemstones are energetically cleansed they are cleared of all energies other than their own, and until they are used again in ritual or meditation, they will generally remain cleared. For some people, it is important to cleanse, wash and purify their gemstones and crystals before using them. For others it is not. This is really a personal preference, one that you may feel into on an individual basis.

Feel into your crystal when you first receive it. How does it feel? Does it feel yummy and scrumptious; is it a pure delight? Then maybe it doesn't need cleared at all. But, if you feel guided to make this new gemstone truly a piece of your own, and perhaps also to have a special bonding session with your new crystalline friend, then cleansing your crystals should be easy and fun. Below are a few ideas for consideration, but you may be inspired by something entirely different! The key is to have an open heart and to connect with your crystals just as you would with any person or spirit guide.

Listed below is one of our favorite methods. For a more exhaustive list of possibilities, see our Crystal Cleansing Guide.

Cleansing your crystals with the method of energy and intention:

Hold your crystal with the intention of Pure Love & Light enfolding it. Feel yourself and your crystal being surrounded within a sphere of very supportive white or golden light energy. (You may also play with different colors, if you enjoy color healing!) Begin to feel Cosmic Love and Source Energy flowing throughout your body and directly into your crystal. Stay within this protective sphere for as long as you feel guided. This is also an excellent way to begin any meditation.
