The crystals I am working with for the week are Star Ruby, Smoky Quartz and Garnet. 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.

I’ve used these crystals together before, and it seems we were enduring tough times then as well. The Star Ruby is so freaking magical. The Star Ruby is swooping in like Superman and rescuing us from the dark energies that have been creeping in. It is reminding you of your true beauty. I know you’ve been feeling that spark within you lately… you KNOW there is so much greatness that awaits you… but there’s been so much other stuff going on… it’s been hard to fully embody all that we want to be. It’s been hard to live to our full power and potential. We are exhausted. We’ve been through a lot. Trust me.. I know. Anxiety and depression is high. There are a lot of people dealing with huge loss and heavy grief right now. There’s also been shifting in relationships and communication struggles. The Star Ruby is coming in to save the day and help us restore our energy. It wants to remind us not to take life for granted, and appreciate what we have now. It is going to assist with relationships and encourage closeness and commitment. It is restoring all kinds of passion. The Star Ruby is helping clear the energy, getting rid of nightmares and physical pain, and setting us back on track again. It is going to help us have a clear mind and be motivated. It’s going to help us with our confidence. It is going to propel us forward towards prosperity and achievement. It reminds us to appreciate all the small things we love each day. Star Ruby helps us to recognize the true abundance of life. The Smoky Quartz is for protection and grounding. It is helping transform negativity to positivity. It is helping us work towards the creative endeavours that make us happy. It is helping us to remember what we need to soothe ourselves through trying times. It is reminding us that even when life gets tough, the things we want still matter.. and in fact, may be more important than ever. We have to remember how strong we are. We can get through anything. Be courageous, and help yourself to turn the energy around every chance you can. The Garnet confirms that it’s time to get our energy back up. It’s time to realize our dreams. These crystals tell me that we can trust in our future, and we should think positively. Let’s see what the cards say!
Wow. I love this deck. It has so much deep wisdom. I was going to use 3 different decks, but these 5 cards came flying out, I turned them over and knew it was exactly the guidance we need right now. I know this is a sure sign from Spirit! The cards tell us that we need to take a break. We have been pushing so hard. You have to realize how important it is for you to take care of yourself and make sure you are happy. If you are exhausted and depleted, life is going to be so much harder. It will be so much harder to be happy. Remind yourself it’s ok to receive… it’s ok to take a break. It’s not only ok, it’s absolutely necessary. It’s the only way we can revitalize our energy. We need to look at our boundaries too. What are you spending your energy on? Are there things you say yes to, that you would rather say no? It’s ok to say no. It’s ok to conserve your energy, especially when things have been tough. Self-Love, Self-Love, Self-Love. The Leap card is about our dreams. We have to take the leap toward the things we truly want in life. Even if you can’t see what’s coming, be prepared to jump when the opportunity comes. The Universe is supporting us. Don’t let anyone hold you back! Allow yourself to be free. Share your creative talents. Put yourself and your work into the world to be seen. Share your voice and opinion. You have important knowledge, experience, talents and wisdom to share. Don’t be scared of what people have to say. Don’t ever allow yourself to be persecuted. Express yourself with courage and confidence. Please know that you don’t have to go through this alone. You have a wonderful support group of friends and family, and a Spiritual team guiding you as well. Turn to the people you love and trust, and allow yourself to be supported. Be open to connection. This is our time to shine, soul family. Things are going to turn around, so get preparing. Do what you can to turn your energy around, and take the leap towards all that you truly desire.
