You may well have heard this crystal referred to as ‘The Reiki Stone’, or seen it when you go to visit a healer. It is believed to have a gentle but powerful energy and is frequently used in energy healing, or to support the process of distance healing. Known to be a calming stone that eases and heals the heart chakra, some people like to wear it on a pendant near their heart. It is considered to heal the metaphysical inner child and is felt to enhance your perception of your immediate environment. You might like to have it in your bedroom too, especially if you’re having difficulty sleeping - let its calming properties permeate your environment whenever you’re feeling particularly stressed. The Mangano Calcite Crystal is believed to be the stone of forgiveness and thought to be useful at dispelling arguments. You can even use it to help you to see the other side of an issue or arguement.

The light is now obviously increasing as Nature begins to emerge in all her many forms, shapes, and colours that remind us of the continual cycles of Earth Mother.

Two interesting articles have recently been published about this topic. Many researchers have believed that by sequencing individual genomes, we would be able to predict what likely diseases that person may get in the future. This is similar to a plot in the movie Gattaca, where genetic profiles were tested, and people were assigned jobs or work based on their genes and mutations.
