The crystals I am working with for the week are Sardonyx, Citrine and Desert Rose. 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.
Sardonyx – A stone of protection and strength. Holds a vibration of happiness, optimism and confidence. Increases stamina, vigor and self-control.
Citrine – Cleanses and rejuvenates your Spirit. Assists with self-improvement and self-healing. Increases energy and motivation. Encourages a fresh start. Holds the energy of the sun, and helps you feel cheerful.
Desert Rose – A stone of the mind, as well as Angelic stone. It is said to bring mental ability and clarity, as well as perception of all kinds, including intuitive perception. It helps you to make sense of things. Quiets worries and stills the mind from distractions. It rids the mind of outdated thought processes. A stone of strength and standing your ground. Helps you to have heart-centered thoughts and brings understanding one’s own emotional body.
We have been through some tough times lately… not only just recently, but for the last while. We are slowly on an upswing, making the changes and adjustments in our life that we need to be happier. This week we are continuing to find more happiness in our life. Things can be so monotonous, exhausting and overwhelming. There has been so much anxiety and depression. We wonder why we have to endure these types of emotions, but everything in life is a lesson. When we go through tough times, we grow and learn the lessons we need to help ourselves not only cope through hard times, but also thrive. I saw a quote today, by another cancer mom, and I loved it so much. It truly embodies how I feel about everything I’ve been through in my life.
“There is something so empowering about knowing that you’ve already experienced the worst thing you will experience in your life.” – Morgan Rachel Shanaghan
Be empowered by your struggles. You’ve been through so much and came out ok.. so why hold yourself back? There is nothing to fear. You’ve handled challenges before and you can do it again. Don’t fear the challenges that arise. See yourself as competent and capable to handle whatever comes your way. When you stop worrying about what could go wrong, you allow for everything that is good. Always remember, that life wants you to be happy. Life wants you to experience the beauty and the joy. Have optimism and be confident in yourself. Life is so much more enjoyable when your happy! You have control over what you want to focus on. When you are in a more positive mindset, it also helps to increase energy levels. When we focus on how hard everything is, it weighs us down. Worry when you must, but take every opportunity you can to turn things around and see them in a positive light. As much as we would love to stop the world from turning, we don’t get to do that. You have to appreciate each moment while you can. The less time you live in depression, the more time you can live being happy. The Citrine is here to cleanse your Spirit and bring in more happiness. The Sardonyx is here to protect you from the things that bring your energy down. See yourself as protected in a bubble of white light. Also, see yourself, or particular body parts, wrapped in green healing light. Self-care is such an overused term, but being kind to yourself and doing caring things for yourself is one of the best ways to find healing. Get a reiki treatment or go for a massage. Find ways to release and heal. When we live in a state of self-love, where we truly care and are compassionate for ourselves, it helps us feel more motivated to do even more for ourselves. This is a great time for starting a work out plan. The more you take care of yourself, the more energy you will have to take greater care. When I did the Autumn Equinox post, the energy was all about fresh starts each and every day. Truly see everyday as another opportunity to do better. Even taking one step towards your goals can be so rewarding.. and then keep building on that. The Desert Rose is here to quiet our mind, and help us find calm and clarity. It wants us to let go of the worries. There has been so much uncertainty lately… people unsure of their path or how to heal.. but the Desert Rose is here to help us make sense of everything. It’s going to help you understand what you need to be truly happy, and help you to stand up for your needs. So many external forces and people affect how we feel about ourselves, so make sure you stay protected in your bubble and do what’s right for you. That’s how you find true happiness! Let’s see what the cards say.
I LOVE these cards. It has to be one of my favourite decks. They are truly so wise! Treasure Island is all about positive thinking. This turtle has no idea what’s on his back, all he knows is it’s heavy. He keeps trekking on, without knowing the rewards he will reap when he reaches his destination. It will all be worth the effort, even though he can’t see that now. This card tells us, the more positive we can think and handle the situations in our lives, the more we will be rewarded. We can’t afford to live a life of lack and worry. Stop putting your energy into all that you don’t have. Be thankful for what you do… for the work you are putting in now. It’s going to pay off, so believe in yourself! When you do the inner work and truly work on healing yourself, it will pay off externally. This is a time of good fortune. Make sure you are enjoying it and sharing it with others. When we hoard and worry, the Universe cuts off our flow of abundance. Treasure that is shared multiplies by magic. Keep your heart open to relationships now too. Things may not always be perfect or easy, but they can bring you great gifts and valuable lessons. This is a positive aspect for business and creative ventures as well. Generosity and gratitude should lead you now. Affirming a sense of not having enough comes at a high cost… Do you really want to proclaim yourself a victim of disappointment and failed expectations? Expectations are the killer of all joy. Live life without expectation, whenever possible, keeping space open in your heart to allow the best possible outcomes… perhaps outcomes you haven’t even considered. What else is possible for you? Really, anything. There is so much love and abundance. Remind yourself how lucky you are to have all that you have. Remind yourself that you are open to receiving blessings of all kinds. See your heart as wide open, ready to receive all the magic the Universe can offer. Just like last week, this is about us getting out of our self-confined limitations. Just because you can’t see the goodness all around you, doesn’t mean it’s not there… maybe you just have to look a little closer or travel a little farther. Open the doors of opportunity and say Yes to life! We have a Deep Knowing of what is right for us. Even though, it isn’t always clear. See everything as a blessing and a lesson. Everything you have been through has taught you something about yourself. Our intuition is always guiding us, so trust what feels right for you. It may feel horrible, or like a huge mistake… but maybe that is just your expectation of the situation, and maybe it’s leading you to a treasure you can’t see yet. If your gut tells you to pursue an opportunity, make sure you do. Sometimes we worry that we don’t have enough experience, but we all have a deep knowing we can tap into, that you can trust in. Trust in what you feel and what you know. Past the busy mind, your genius awaits… and it truly comes from your heart. You know what is right for you and what isn’t, so listen to that inner knowing and trust in it. Go The Distance is all about how strong we are now. We can handle whatever comes our way, and can do so efficiently. Focus on what you are working towards, and not on the hiccups along the way. There is no need to fear the occasional obstacle. You have what it takes to overcome anything and be successful. It is important you remain true to yourself, and listen to your inner guidance. If you are doing the best you can, it keeps you in alignment with the energy of miracles. This is also about relationships and listening to your intuition. Do they have a larger purpose in your life? If you feel the need to let them go, do it. If you feel there is a greater purpose to your union, then trust in that. Things may get tough along the way… but imagine the satisfaction when you have made it so far together. There are always so many lessons we can’t see or understand at the time. Whoever is meant to stay in your life will do so. This is about continuing on our path even when we can’t see the finish line. Life is about the journey, not the ending. Trust that you are always in the right place at the right time, learning life lessons that pertain to you. You only get stronger for every hurdle you endure. If you need to conserve your strength, be selective about where you spend your energy. Stand up for yourself and be willing to say no when needed. Listen to the call of your soul, because it will never lead you astray.
I pulled an extra card for guidance from the Universe, and it’s so perfect. You don’t have to say anything at all… just live in your bubble of happiness, and people will see and mirror your magic! Have a great week!
