The crystals I am working with for the week are Hematite, Specularite and Smoky Quartz. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.
Hematite – Helps absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry. A protective stone and very grounding. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more positive vibration.
Specularite – Gounding, yet has a high vibration. It helps us identify our talents and put them to best use. Dissolves negativity. Balances the meridians and Yin/Yang energy. Assists mental functioning, memory and development. Calms the mind and brings inner peace. Boosts confidence and self worth.
Smoky Quartz – Protective and grounding. It removes negativity and transforms to positive energy. Enhances survival skills and helps one reach personal and business goals. It is used in making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Therefore, it is a stone that brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. It fosters cooperation in groups and supports their efforts energetically. It engenders creativity by bringing imaginative efforts to fulfillment. It also works energetically to assist in prioritizing needs and wants, and brings wisdom to every day life. Excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. It is a helpful stone for enhancing and encouraging courage and inner strength. Smoky quartz is very comforting and calming, and is considered a stone of serenity. It can be helpful in relieving grief.
I took a bit of a break from my weekly readings this summer. I only did readings for those who were in need, including myself. We are into the last couple months of 3 years of treatments for my son who has leukemia. It’s been a long journey and I’ve been taking lots of time with him to just relax. I haven’t had much time with my family being home for summer, but now that everyone’s headed back to school and work, it’s the perfect time to get back to it. Especially with this lovely Virgo New Moon we just had. Virgo is very Earthy energy, and these crystals are asking us to get grounded. We need to be on stable, sturdy footing to be able to move forward efficiently. There’s a million reasons to stress and worry (believe me, I know!) but what is going to help us now is to find our surety in life, no matter what is going on around us. We have to keep trying to find the place of calm when we are triggered. We have to keep doing our best to see the bigger picture, instead of reacting in the moment on impulse. Life isn’t so bad. This moment isn’t going to bother us in a month, so why let it bother you today? We are trying to unlearn everything we thought we knew. Where you have been tough in the past, would maybe benefit you to be soft there now. Find as many ways to live a positive life as you can. There is high energy and positive vibrations now. We are seeing how talented we are and we are becoming more confident in putting ourselves out there to be seen. You have nothing to lose. Anything you feel guided to do and create, please do it. It is a great time for studying and going back to school, as there is a lot of positive mental functioning. That’s not to say things won’t get hard, but we are getting better at recognizing those negative thought patterns, and not giving into their energy. Take everything negative and transmute it into positivity! If I hadn’t discovered Spirituality because of my broken heart, I wouldn’t have had beautiful Spiritual friends and guidance to carry me through my son’s leukemia. This week, if you have a hard time, ask yourself how you can find the good. Or better yet, find ways to give out good energy in the face of adversity. It’s not always going to be easy.. and sometimes your going to get stuck and dwell. Just keep doing your best to turn things around quicker each time. You are strong, and you have what it takes. Not only that, there is so much positive energy here, within astrology and these crystals, that says there is abundance, success and prosperity on the way to us. Find the place inside you that makes you feel serene. Put your best self out there and the Universe will reward you. Let’s see what the cards say!
Shielding is about not taking on other people’s energy. This is a new season and a fresh start for a lot of your goals and dreams. Don’t let anyone interfere with your beliefs. Do what’s right for you, and feel how you want to feel. Protect yourself emotionally, physically and spiritually. To do this, visualize white light for protection surrounding you, your home, your loved ones, your community, etc. You can also use green light for healing. This is about keeping your cool even when other people test you. Can you still send love even when people seem undeserving? Can you still do your best even when the odds seem stacked? It’s important not to dwell on the negative, because it attracts more negativity. Remember, we want to transmute those energies to positive. Replace feelings of anger, sadness or frustration with love. It doesn’t mean you have to hug your enemy.. but it does mean that you can wish them well and move on with calm in your heart. When the world gets you down, you have to respond with love. This is about YOU now, and I know this can be a hard thing to grasp. We are always used to focusing our attention on others! If we can find our own happiness and stability, then our lives will be that much better, and the people around us will be better for it too. Mother Mary is a perfect representation of the Virgo “Virgin” energy. It’s about living your most honest, well-intentioned life, and doing your best. It reminds me of a quote I saw recently, “if you can love yourself even though you have flaws, you can love other people with flaws too”. Have compassion and love for everything in life. Mother Mary is also helping us to embrace our talents and abilities. Be proud of how far you’ve come, and do things to be proud of in the future. Remember what a true blessing it is to live this life!
