The crystals I am using this week are:
Desert Rose is used to dissolve “programs” we have put upon our selves that are outdated or over-used.
Goldstone helps you to stay calm and stabilize emotions. It’s helps to attain goals. Symbolizes prosperity to me.
The Crystal Geode connects us to Earth, and symbolizes the beauty held within a hardened exterior.
Smoky Quartz is a grounding stone that transmutes negative energies and facilitates your ability to get things done in the practical world. Alleviates depression. This is a favourite stone of mine.
Polka-dot Rhyolite represents change, variety and progress. It sparks creativity in individuals who are ready.
Smoky Quartz again.
Ocean Jasper is a marvelous stone for cultivating patience and coping with change, and encourages giving service to others.
There is a lot of change to come this week… And communication will go along with it. I could feel major tension in my throat chakra while doing my reiki, and these stones are very representative of change. Let’s see what the cards say.
This week feels like there is a lot of business and work related communication and decision making, and the weekend feels like time to work on our communication at home. Blue Heron is telling us to take a stand in our lives. Do what feels right for you, no matter what everyone else thinks around you. It seems like there will be definite changes in our lives this week, one where we need to pay attention to the details, and make careful consideration. No matter how people around you are making you feel, make the choice that feels right for you. Mouse not only says to look at the fine details of the situation, but also at the truth behind people’s actions all around you. Don’t just take their words or advice at face value, but really decipher them for truth. Gorilla is a reminder to make time for the people that truly matter to us, our family and friends. Show your appreciation for them, and build your connection by being a good listener and allowing them to open up, and the weekend coming up will be a perfect time to make this happen. (I said there was going to be lots of communicating this week!) Remind your family of how much you love them, by truly listening and allowing them to express themselves. Keep your relationships strong and healthy!
Blue Heron – Trust your deepest sense of knowing what the right action is and do it, and don’t rely on others to tell you what to do or how to act. Not everyone will approve of the decisions you make, and if your choice goes against the grain of what people expect from you, you’ll no doubt run into strong criticism and judgment. Stand still, look around you, and breathe. You’re doing just fine in spite of other’s assessments of you. Besides, your greatest and most fulfilling support will come from a place inside that guides you by revealing signs that tell you what path to follow. Heeding the signs helps your soul be in alignment with spirits intent for you. You may have to get both feet in the water and wade through the dregs of other people’s disapproval, asserting yourself where needed. Practical optimism and clarity of purpose will always dissipate any tendencies toward cynicism or self-pity. Trust in your inner knowing, and let that be the source of your strength to help keep you moving forward.
Mouse – Pay closer attention to other people’s body language, how they move, their gestures, facial expressions, and general posture. When you focus not only on what individuals are saying but also on their body language, you’ll find that you have considerably more information that you can use to understand what they’re really communicating. For body language typically reveals far more about people than what their verbally expressing. Sit back wherever there are people around, and simply observe for a while. Look to see if what others say is congruent with their body language, and watch for any discrepancies. In other words, don’t always take people at their word. Also pay closer attention to agreements and contracts right now take your time to completely understand any agreement, finding out as much as you can by asking questions and consulting friends and experts to get their advice. Be careful, however, not to get bogged down into much detail. Walk that fine line between scrutinizing a contract for an inordinate amount of time, thus remaining stuck in indecisiveness due to your need to be 100% certain that you’ve covered everything, and rushing into something impulsively and reflexively based on emotional appeal.
Gorilla – The bond between family members can gradually decay and become stultified unless it’s continually nourished with loving attention, and one of the simplest most elegant ways of showing that attention is to listen compassionately to those you care about the most. Otherwise, you risk taking them for granted, assuming they’ll always be there and that they’ll know you love them. Take time to have a conversation, starting with relatively superficial topics, and moving into more in-depth, personal themes, adding your own tidbits, but primarily focusing on what the other person has to say. Show your spouse, partner, children, parents, or elders you your love by listening and really hearing what they have to say about how they feel and what they think. This not only generates a deeper, more lasting affection between you and the other person, but far exceeds glibly saying “I love you” with no real feelings behind it. People are constantly changing and evolving, adding new experiences and insights. Who someone is today, while built on a foundation of a core-self, changes and is continuously elaborating on that core-self. Find the newness and freshness in those you love, which includes both your biological and marital families, as well as your close friends whom you’ve informally adopted as family.
