There is a crystal for every occasion

Crystals have a mystical, eternal quality and have long been treasured for their beauty. For thousands of years, they have been prized for their physical and spiritual healing properties. In almost every culture and civilization around the world, crystals of all shapes, colours and sizes have been used in religious rituals, as ornamentation or as talismans of good fortune. Small wonder then that today many of us seem so drawn to these precious and mysterious stones; our fascination with crystals is part of a vast and extensive legacy.

All natural crystals vibrate with energy, and when these vibrations are used for healing, they have the effect of balancing the energies in the body, allowing for physical, mental or emotional healing. The right crystal can help to bring balance, calm and positivity into your life.

This guide introduces over 40 essential crystals and their unique properties, from the love- and harmony-infused rose quartz to memory-boosting amber. Discover:

– how crystals work
– how to select and maintain your crystals
– how to make use of their power in everyday life
– basic techniques for crystal meditation
– how to balance your chakras using crystals
– a guide to birthstones

… and other simple ways to bring harmony to mind, body and spirit using these natural treasures.

The future is ours – let’s enjoy it! This hilarious fully illustrated book will help ease you into this strange and perplexing new stage of your life.

After all those years of routine you’re suddenly free! You’re bound to be a bit nervous – it is your first time. No more being bossed about – well, apart from by your other half, of course. No more getting up at the crack of dawn to go to work – though at your age you may have to get up at the crack of dawn anyway to use the loo. No more wage slavery – er, no more wages…

But it’s going to be fine, because you can now do what you want to do – within reason, naturally. Within these pages you’ll discover:

– What your new job as “retiree” involves, the hours (all of them) and the pay (let’s face it, if anyone advertised a job with this salary, no one would take it)
– Conversations you will no longer have to have
– Things you no longer have to feel guilty about
– Pursuits for bored retirees
– Truths that will slowly dawn on you
– Ways to supplement your pension
…and all the other perks (and niggles) that come with your new position (and no, we don’t mean “horizontal on the sofa”).
