The heroine of our paranormal romance HEALING MAGIC is a witch, healer and empath. Eva Grace Connelly uses crystals to soothe physical and emotional pain, and she and her coven embrace the natural power of crystals for protection and insight. The witches need all these tools in this action-packed final book of THE WITCHES OF NEW MOURNE trilogy.
These sister witches are carrying on an ancient tradition. Crystals have been used in healing rituals for thousands of years in cultures all over the world. For strength and fortification, gems and crystals have adorned swords, armor and thrones.
Crystals and gemstones work with our internal rhythms, drawing out the negative energy and letting the positive flow in. They can help steady and sustain you. Holding a stone won’t heal you, but it can help.
The Powell half of our writing team has had a citrine crystal for decades. Citrine enhances the body’s natural healing. She often holds this smooth, polished stone when she prays or meditates or is looking for peace, insight or strength. She also uses geodes in her home décor (pictured), and moonstones are her favorite earrings (also pictured).
We believe the natural world is infused with magic. It’s not always the flash-bang of magic we see in the movies. It’s in the rhythm of the seasons, the veins in a leaf, the cry of a bird and beautiful crystals mined from the earth.
We loved incorporating the use of crystals into the WITCHES OF NEW MOURNE trilogy, particularly in HEALING MAGIC. Eva Grace is an amazing heroine who learns her strong, healing power can save her life, freeing her for a new path with a new love.
