The crystals I chose this week, starting from left to right, then top and bottom, are:
Pyrite – Attracts abundance in our life. It is a strong stone to promote positive thinking and abundance.
Goldstone – I also consider this a stone that attracts abundance. Goldstone is said to help attain one’s goals. Goldstone is also said to help one stay calm and stabilize the emotions. It can be used as an energy generator and can deflect unwanted energies, making it useful as a protection stone.
Red Jasper – It creates a strong connection to the earth and this is very helpful for emotional equilibrium and spiritual grounding. It gives deep insight into personal difficulties and gives you a strong sense of stability.
Carnelian – Carnelian are stones of action, that will give you the courage and confidence to move forward on a new path in life.
Apache Tears – Apache Tears are said to especially relieve grief and sadness as well as assisting in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions, and they also can balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones, said to bring good luck to anyone who has one. They are excellent meditation tools, especially for clarifying issues and gaining insight.
Smoky Quartz – Is an excellent grounding stone. It neutralizes negative vibrations and is detoxifying.
Hematite – Hematite crystals have an excellent grounding and balancing energy, as well as being a powerful aid to stimulate the mind. They enhance memory and evoke deep thought.
I realized that I started with crystals to attract abundance and happiness leading the flow into our life, the middle represented our inner focus, the Apache Tears at the end to represent our strength needed throughout the path of our life, the Smoky Quartz above to direct the flow of our energy into the heavens, and the hematite to keep us grounded to Mother Earth. The orange and red crystals were spoken about during a card reading I read earlier today, and I also happened to sleep with them near me last night. It appears this week we will finally finish working through some issues within ourselves, to move forward to some positive lessons and manifestations, and it looks like this week will be very positive for us! Iceberg card always feels negative to me… Like some ugly part of my personality that I try to hide, is only becoming more prevalent because of the attention I give to try and avoid it. When we learn lessons in life, it takes time… It takes processing.. Like waves of the ocean washing up and slowing clearing away layers of hurt and pain, to eventually find renewal. I have been feeling frustrated lately, and asking myself what I do to attract these “feelings” about my life… What can I really do to change the outcome of my life and my happiness? I believe this card is a reminder that everyday, we are working on ourselves and changing. It is a process. That which we perceive is negative about ourselves, can just be an aspect of who we are, as an imperfect human being. I have to find the way to accept and love myself fully, and stop worrying and questioning. I need to let my life progress and process, while trying to stay positive and loving! Although I look at this card a bit negatively, it appears from the spread of the 3 cards that we will learn from our submerged aspects in our life, and be able to move forward to a new phase of our lives, one filled with manifestations and renewal. We got through the tough times, we completed our lessons, and it’s time to start fresh! I also believe, it could represent an idea or want that we have suppressed, and now it’s time to bring it to the surface! It’s funny, this evening I went outside and looked up at the moon and realized its almost full again. Where is the time going!! It felt to me like it should still be a New Moon, and look at the card that came. I believe this card is the perfect card for the first day of spring. It is a symbol of the promise in our life, that our desires are coming to fruition. The image in the card is so beautiful and romantic to me. Spring is always a season of love, and this card definitely confirms that. Keeping our thoughts positive and attracting positivity in our lives will help us guarantee our soul’s desires will come true. Whale is the perfect sign of us being able to move out of our element, if only momentarily, so we can face fears and move past them, knowing they were only illusionary. We are going to push our boundaries and surpass them. We are going to find newfound freedoms to live by going forward. Change can be scary, but it can also be liberating!! That’s exactly what I believe is in store for us this week, is a wonderful feeling of liberation and power! I need to get out of my element for a while, I think that is exactly what I need to restore my happiness and freedom! (Thank you Angels!! 🙏 I take just as much from these readings as you guys do!)
Iceberg (Submerged) – Up to 90% of an iceberg’s body is below the surface, deeply submerged in the bosom of Grandmother Ocean. Yet Grandmother allows considerable freedom for her enormous children, permitting them to move about as dictated by the currents and their own momentum. Having broken from a glacier or ice shelf, they float along the sea, much to the detriment of vessels that attempt to traverse their passageways. Most of us have heard stories of ill-fated ships that have had tragic encounters with these ice mountains. Although the top most portion can easily be seen, there’s still a massive amount of its body below the water that may be difficult to detect. That which remains unseen can fool us and perhaps even be dangerous and damaging. Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conciliation awareness will show up somewhere and somehow. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reason, yet they remain contained by shame and guilt. Sometimes these submerged aspects of yourself are projected onto others, so that they mirror those denied or suppressed parts of you, and you may even harshly judge these characteristics when they are exhibited. Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. These may make up some sort of self-expression, a secret dream you wish to accomplish, or even uglier aspects that are difficult to acknowledge or accept. Whatever you have submerged deep inside you, this is your opportunity to pay attention to those things and welcome them to the family called “you”.
New Moon (Promise) – Gazing at the sliver of the new moon smiling down upon them, the couple embraces each other, welcoming the promise of their love. The fading sun drapes the clouds and waters with its tinge of luminescence, as the crescent opens its arms to the nearby planet Venus, names after the Roman Goddess of love. This is a time for manifestation, beginnings, and renewal, with the promise that our desires will come to fruition. Here Grandmother Moon initiates another lunar cycle, moving from darkness to fullness and back again over approximately one month. Her promise of what’s to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtains of darkness that had recently encompassed her. It is a promise that has been kept for as long as she has existed. This is the time to launch a project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put into action what is required to fully realize this idea. A promise has 2 meanings: it can be a commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen, or it can imply that something specific is expected to happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your intention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept.
Whale (Breach) – This powerful creature of the ocean takes a few great sweeps with his fins and propels himself briefly out of the waters where he spends the majority of his life. He’s taking a break from the ordinary Earth element in which he lives to exist even for a few moments in the realm of blue skies and sun, having broken through the skin of the ocean in the magnificent display of fullness and strength. In this image, the humpback whale that has burst out of the ocean expresses an almost palpable feeling of release and joy. Often when we manage to change our environment – to break through illusionary blockages – we experience an intense feeling of relief and can let go of any previously held fears and assumptions of what would happen once we did overcome that barrier, whether it’s material, emotional, or mental. Simply getting away from the trance of technology for a few hours and spending time in nature is a breach from the trappings of civilization that can suffocate us and prevent us from connecting to Earth. It’s time to take a break! Not just a coffee break, but a respite from the usual environment you find yourself in. That trip you wanted to take? Go for it. Tired of being indoors? Make it a point to get outside. You have become so attached your surroundings that you have created with them in the illusion of safety, yet it is not these things that make you feel safe. Rather, the familiarity you have imbued in your surroundings have generated this false sense of security. Taking time away from the familiar is literally about changing your external environment in a significant way, such as doing something unusual or perhaps something you have always wanted to experience. Another perspective is breaking through the barrier of beliefs that have constricted you in any way from being who you truly are. This is your opportunity to do some internal breaching of these thought patterns, which will open you up to different worlds and perspectives.
