For millennia, ancient peoples have harnessed the power of crystals, using this power to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages. This was done to  facilitate the free flow of throughout the body. I have used crystals for many decades and especially here at Bealtaine Cottage.

The Second Coming

There is a madness rising in the world. I feel it quite severely. Seek sanctuary in the sacred…your life, your family, your friends…but especially your home, Mother Earth.

Penny Power

The important fact is that we are amazingly powerful as consumers. I refuse to give money to any corporation or anyone who is involved in the rape of Mother Earth. I don’t use gas in my cottage, not even a lighter, for I refuse to support fracking. That is my bottom line and what I […]
