4/20/20: Smudging isn’t the only way to create a smoke offering…

We all know that the smoke produced by smudging or burning herbs is a wonderful way to cleanse negative energy from a space, but there are other types of herbaceous smoke that can create a calming effect. Are you thinking, what I’m thinking? Yep, you guessed it! In honor of our new website, www.thesecretdoormh.com, launching on 4/20/20 we couldn’t allow the opportunity to be completely cliché and write a pun filled ode to our fellow Stoners, the crystal collecting kind, to get away.

Part of the journey to enlightenment involves opening your mind to the vast number of alternative possibilities. What could be more mind or Third Eye opening than enjoying your favorite type of vertical joyride in a pipe fashioned from an energetic Crystal? The Secret Door carries Amethyst, Labradorite, Lapis Lazuli, Llanite, Rose Quartz, and Ruby in Zoisite pipes for your smoking pleasure and while we’d be happy to make a suggestion for you, we’ve included a guide for those of you wondering what crystal magic you’d like to add to your next smoke sesh!

Please see descriptions of the energetic signature of each crystal pipe we carry below:

Amethyst: Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification; cleansing one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments. It creates a resonant shield of spiritual light around the body and assists in connecting to the Divine.

It is also widely believed to be a great stone to assist in releasing addictions or harmful overindulgence, and it’s a great stone for hangover support, so if you tend toward excess and want to cut back this may be the one for you. Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown that Etheric chakras so it is all about your HIGHer self.

Llanite enables us to “disconnect” from the emotional baggage of an issue and look at it objectively. This allows us to determine the actual cause of the problem and find a resolution.

Llanite: The frequency of Llanite connects to ALL the chakras, opening, cleansing and stimulating the whole of the chakric column, allowing one’s energy to constantly flow unhindered throughout one’s being thus increasing one’s physical well-being and enhancing one’s energetic fields. The energy of Llanite supports one becoming open to higher vibrational energies, increasing one’s awareness of the higher dimensions and to the abundance and perfection of the Universe.
