Judy Hall's Crystal Zodiac
By Judy Hall
Birthstones have been used for millennia for luck, abundance, protection, and wisdom. Traditionally, crystals and gemstones were linked to specific astrological signs because their energies resonated. The discovery of new crystals has opened the way for a deeper connection between the earth and the sky. Each sign now has many crystals associated with it. This book describes the crystals linked to each sign and explains how they can be used to enhance self-understanding and personal growth. Crystals can be used to bring out a sign's potential, overcome challenges, and harmonize discords. They can be used for profound soul growth or for guidance on everyday decisions. Birthstones are gifts from the earth that bring healing and wisdom. For each astrological sign, there are past-life patterns to be dissolved and wisdom to be regained. The use of appropriate crystals facilitates this process. In addition to explaining the links between crystals and both sun and moon signs, Judy Hall's Crystal Zodiac explains the crystals associated with the planets and gives instructions for laying out and working with a crystal zodiac mandala.
Japanese Art: the colouring book
By Frédérique Cassegrain, Dominique Foufelle
Pick up your pencils or brushes and colour in 20 beautiful landscapes from Japanese master Hokusai, including The Great Wave at Kanagawa, The Falcon and the Cherry Blossoms and Mount Fuji in Clear Weather. Along the way learn about the techniques and most famous works of this famous master. For each painting, there is an image of the original painting, a line image to colour in, a brief history of the painting, and a blank page for drawing. Unleash your creativity, practise your technique and sketch your own image in the Hokusai style. Whether you are a colouring fan, a lover of art or an aspiring artist, this book is a must-have.
How can you shake off those niggling everyday worries? Immerse yourself in these detailed designs inspired by Japan. You will become totally absorbed in the wonderful images drawn from nature and from legend (cherry trees, clouds, waves, dragons, tigers, carp and much more). Many are redolent of the age of the Samurai. Choose an illustration at random, then make a start, using whichever colours you like and choosing from felt-tips, pencils, gouaches or pastels. Gradually, you'll find calm returning as your thoughts focus purely on the action of colouring in. The sheets in this pad are all detachable, so you can display your favourite creations. Just 5-10 minutes a day of colouring in is enough to encourage mindfulness.
