George du Marier once said, "Happiness is like time and space we make and measure it ourselves; it is as fancy, as big, as little, as you please; just a thing of contrasts and comparisons." There is no one size fits all for someone's happiness. Therefore, it is important that we find out what makes us happy. This is why crystals are such a good aide for our happiness. They take our energy in and give out the rays and vibrations that can lift your mood and make you generally feel happier, specified to you only. Since it uses our own energy, what we put into it, we can get out what we need from them.

The area is now beneath the sea. The Lemurians are believed to have foreseen a cataclysmic event, and prepared the Seed Crystals to preserve their knowledge and traditions. During the last days of their civilization, the Lemurians decided to plant seed crystals programmed to transmit a message of oneness. Having seeded the crystals, most of the Lemurians left this planet for other star systems, perhaps as light beings or spirits. Others went into the inner earth where they continue to care for the earth and the seed crystals now surfacing.

However, one must remember that happiness is not one size fits all and it is different for every person. Knowing this, it is especially important to find a crystal that can absorb your energy and give it back to you; helping you find the happiness you deserve and desire. For this purpose we recommend pale gold crystals such as Golden Beryl and Citrine. You may also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Papagoite, Sardonyx, and Sunstone.
