Wuzhen, Never Came to Leave

Wuzhen, I do not want to leave

introduce of Wuzhen
The south of the Yangtze River is like a dream, gently with everyone in the heart of the lingering. The dream is like a kind of feelings, it is a call that bring me to the old times.
The most impressive in South of the Yangtze River is the Millennium ancient town- Wuzhen.

In Wuzhen, you can see the unique Bridges that built up in Ming and Qing dynasty, under the bridges, you can see the boats and greenflowing waves. On the revier bank, you can see the drooping willow tree, the water tower under the white walls and black tiles. Everything here is super in my heart. An old house with dense rich historical atmosphere, these seems familiar in my night dreams. Involved in these ancient things, people will feel peace when they stand in the space-time of history and reality staggered in.
Wuzhen, near in Hangzhou West Lake, it still has a unique charm of Jiangnan, quiet and regraceful after changing. Although there are many tourists in Wuzhen now, but there is always quiet, cause  this kind of quiet temperament, many people dream of having a travel here in one day.


In addition, Wuzhen has the characteristics beautiful scenery of Jiangnan , there are a lot of unique charm out of the ordinary. Many ancient buildings intact out of print, some of  houses keep the original ecology of the Jiangnan style, and you  can find many original workshops.

Wuzhen is a place where there is a story. The pieces of the stone pillar, which has been trampled smooth depression. It witnessed the rise and fall of Wuzhen after thousands of years of passers’ coming and going.

There are some of production processes, such as old wine, delicious, traditional Duck in Brown Sauce and biscuits. The old door and the beam silently tells the vicissitudes of Wuzhen.

Rune Stones Symbol & Meaning

Rune Stones are a set of 24 ancient alphabetic symbols, which are believed to have originated from the Northern parts of Europe sometime during the Palaeolithic times.


In nature, Rune Stones are regarded by many as a symbology which is far more powerful in communication than the mortal words that we use today. There is an apparent link between the power of the mind, as well as other magical properties, which are represented by the symbology contained within each symbolic letter.

How To Use Chakra Stones

The use of chakra stones for chakra balancing can help you acquire energy balance that is essential to your overall emotional and physical well-being.

Chakra stones’ healing properties and meanings are unique to each stone. It’s important to remember that all stones and crystals possess their own vibrational frequency. To dispel chakra blockages and promote balance, you must use stones with a vibrational frequency that matches the chakra you are wanting to heal.

The most common technique for using chakra stones is known as the “Laying on of Stones,” It involves placing cleansed and charged healing stones on the body’s specific energy centers for a period of time.

Where to Place Chakra Stones on the Body

Position stones beginning with the root chakra and move upward to help direct energy flow. If energy needs to be ushered upward toward the crown, all stones (especially those that come to a single point) are placed so they’re pointing “up.”

Cleansing Healing Stones

Healing stones must be cleansed prior to use. Cleansing dispels all the bad energy that is absorbed by the stone so it is refreshed. If you’re unsure how to cleanse stones, there are numerous recommendations and guides online.

Ways of clearing crystals and gemstones
1. Consecration Ritual
If you’ve got the time, there’s nothing wrong with doing a full-fledged consecration ritual for your new crystals. This particular ritual is a simple one that can be used to consecrate any magical tools, clothing or jewelry, or even the altar itself. By offering your crystals to the powers of the four elements, they are consecrated and blessed from all directions.

  1. Magical Moonlight
    Cleansing a crystal by moonlight is a pretty popular method. Although the specifics of how it’s done will vary from one practitioner to the next, there are a couple of ways you can take advantage of the moon’s energy to cleanse your crystals and stones.

Place your crystals in a bowl outside under the light of a full moon – in some traditions, they’re left out for three nights, to include the night before and the night following the moon’s fullest phase.

In other belief systems, the crystals are left in the moonlight during the waning moon phase, in order to get rid of negative energy.

In general, while moonlight is great for cleansing, sunlight really isn’t. This is because sunlight can cause crystals to fade over time.
3. Smudging
Smudging is a popular method of cleansing crystals that is used in a variety of magical traditions. Just like when you create sacred space, the purpose of smudging is to eliminate negative energies.

With smudging, you can use sage, sweetgrass, or other herbs. You can also use incense, if you like. When you light sage or sweetgrass, allow it to flame for a moment and then blow out the flame. This will leave you with a burning herb bundle, which will create smoke. Pass your crystals through the smoke for cleansing.

  1. Sea Salt, Dirt, or Herbal Burial
    Some people like to bury their crystals – and if you want to give it a shot, go for it! Place the crystals in a bowl or jar, and completely cover them with dirt from your own property, or dried herbs associated with cleansing, such as sage or sweetgrass. Another option is to bury your herbs directly in the ground – if you have a garden, it’s a great place to stash your stones for a few nights.

When using sea salt, please keep in mind that some crystals don’t react well to salt exposure. Do your homework before you bury a crystal in sea salt, especially if it’s a porous stone.

  1. Water Energy
    Use consecrated water to soak your crystals in. Again, if you’re going to use salt water, be sure to check before immersing your crystals.
    Live near a beach, river, or creek? Hold your crystals in the running water to cleanse them of negative energies.

Note:It should be done frequently (monthly) to release any negative energy back into the earth. Also, if they use salt, it should be sea salt,  not regular table salt.

What Not To Do
Never use warm or hot water,some crystals and stones can fracture or crack when immersed in it.

Note: Some information comes from website.

A journey called life

A journey called life

Most people I know who waited to travel the world never did. Be careful of the yeah-but. The yeah-but will kill your dreams.

When you get older, life seems to just sort of happen to you. Your youth is a time of total empowerment. You get to do what you want. As you mature and gain new responsibilities. So if you have a reasonable amount of control over your circumstances,you should do what really matters.

There are three reasons to travel:

1. Traveling teaches you to live an adventure

2. Traveling helps you meet more people

3. Traveling allows you to get some culture

For me, the last reason is why i want to have a travel.

You won’t always be young, and life won’t always be just about you. See this while you’re still young. Do not squanderthis time, because you will never have it again.

Hands down. No excuse. Just go.
