Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of October 4, 2020

The crystals I am working with for the week are Turritella, Ocean Jasper and Botswana Agate. 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.

Turritella – Deeply connected to the earth and home, to one’s personal roots and ancestry, even the events of one’s past. It is a survival stone, one of strength and protection. Ancient life held within its form lends the power of wisdom and healing. Protects against danger, alleviates fears, and keeps the connection to loved ones at home. Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. Agate stops the burning desires for things we do not need, and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs.

Ocean Jasper – Increases expression of love in words and actions. Gently brings into focus the positive aspects of one’s life. Brings relaxation and cooperation to the home or workplace. This powerful stone lifts negativity so one can fully appreciate blessings. Encourages a feeling of joy and increases optimism. Enhances your personal power, helping you understand yourself better, have greater self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.

Botswana Agate – A comfort stone, beneficial in overcoming depression, and being strong during grieving. It helps alleviate obsessive thoughts and destructive mental patterns, and assists in overcoming fears, such as agoraphobia and panic attacks. A stone of protection and luck. Helpful for finding partners who are in tune and share their dreams. Promotes inner stability, composure and maturity. Encourages security and self-confidence. Encourages you to see the bigger picture in life.

I used the Turritella and Ocean Jasper together back in September 2018, the week of the 23rd. This is an excerpt of what we were going through then:

“Everyday, we are at war with ourselves. Some days are better than others. Some days, there are so many reasons to feel sad and frustrated. Some days we are exhausted. Still, we must forge on, and there is definitely no reason that we need to be miserable and angry. Every single day, we have to remember why we choose to be happy. We have to appreciate all the things we do have. When things get tough, and you want to break down and quit, you have to find a more optimistic perspective. It might not always work, but at least keep trying, and do your best. Surely, you will experience a shift in your reactions and mindset. It doesn’t serve you, in any way, to wallow over the past. Positivity is the way forward. Find the humour, or a way to laugh.. it’s truly the best way to shift your perspective.”

The energy lately has been so intense. Deep shifts are happening within us and are being reflected in our outer world. Feelings that have been bubbling deep down inside, are demanding to come out to be expressed and released. You can only ignore the truth for so long. Truth always eventually comes to the light. If you have been ignoring your own needs, they are going to be screaming out to you now. You are likely feeling irritable and exhausted. You’ve done so much, for so long. I hear you and I see you. We mustn’t allow ourselves to wallow there though. We are strong and we can do all that is required of us. We just have to pace ourselves, and never give up. Yes, we deserve to relax more and have more prosperity, and we have to trust that is coming. For now, we have to keep working with what we have, where we are. It’s going to be much easier to manifest a positive attitude over a lottery win. Which one would serve you better in the long run? We don’t need to long for all the extra things in life. We need to find satisfaction in what we have right here and now. We have what we need, and we don’t need to constantly live in fear. The important thing to look at now is our own thought processes. The pressures we put on ourself. We have to understand that we are the ones who create our own happiness. If you are going to work all your life and not put your foot down for what you deserve, then nothing is going to change. If you are going to allow yourself to struggle and stress endlessly, life is going to be hard. You have to make the changes you need. It might not be easy, but only you understand the needs of your soul, and only you can change the way things are. Brainstorm some ideas of things you can change to create a happier life. What do you love to do? What do you want to do? Write it down. Remind yourself of your goals and inspirations. Find ways to start incorporating those ideas into your life. We need to start living a more relaxed life, which in turn will open us up to receiving more. Appreciate blessings and joy, and be happy. When we are truly happy… when we let go of the fears and worry… we have so much self-confidence and self-worth. When you love yourself, you appreciate yourself and the moments you have here. You want to make the best of it. This is where your power lies. In the choice… in the conscious choosing of being happy and healthy. You can overcome depression and anxiety. Grief can heal. Obsessive thoughts and fears can be soothed. It’s not always going to be easy, and there will be bumps in the road. The more you practice, the easier it will be to continue to heal. We are protected, we are safe, and we are lucky. We are coming into our maturity, and we are composed and ready. Be confident. Create opportunities. See the bigger picture in life, with optimistic positivity. Let’s see what the cards say!

The Harmony card is asking us to create more harmony for ourselves. Music is a great tool when you need to express your emotions or even change how you are feeling. Use music to feel… good, or sad, happy or nostalgic.. whatever you need to feel, there is music that can help you. I find this card especially interesting, as Elf Angels Creations store in Lloydminster, Alberta, had a sound healing last night with Denise Tournier from Energized Mandalas. She played a beautiful crystal harp. The sound was so angelic and powerful. You can watch the video on Elf Angels Creations Page on Facebook where she demonstrates her tools and plays some music. It is fitting to see this card after watching such beautiful sounds. This card is about creating a harmonious life with the people around us. This is about letting life flow through us, and making the best of it. Creating with what we have. This card tells us we are moving into a phase of harmony and balance. The hard part is going to be maintaining those things. There are always going to be bumps in the road. It’s about learning that, even when things get hard, we still have our own harmonious life we can create. When you are feeling down, remember a time when you felt amazing. What can you do to feel more like that today? The Spirit of Fire is this transformation we have been going through. It’s about facing our fears and letting go of the old beliefs and experiences. This is about trying new things. It’s about creating new habits and lifestyles and believing in yourself. You are a thunderbird rising from the ashes, who are you going to be now? How do you appear as you visualize yourself rising from the fire? Make small changes to work towards that vision of yourself. This is about balance. You have to take care of others, but you also have to take care of you. “Fire that burns too brightly, burns out… but a fire that’s left to smoulder, dies.” The Camel is here to remind us of our resiliency. It feels like this journey has been so long and hard. Things can look bleak. If you take time to rest, you can look to your inner resources for satisfaction. You can realize that in this moment, in the now, things are always ok. Use music, meditation, visualizing and dreaming, to create any reality you choose. You can call on the wealth of knowledge you have accumulated to help you overcome anything with courage and determination. What have you got to lose? First, identify where you want to go. Make a list of those dreams and goals, no matter how spectacular they are. Then, proceed slowly towards those goals, making small steps and adjusting as you go. Cast away fears, doubts and hesitations as they arise. Know that all is well and you are protected at all times. Call upon your Spirit Guides and Angels to help you and continue to guide you forward. You have what it takes, and you will get through this! That is why we need to make the most of it… make the best of it.. I feel so many good things are on the way for us. If you keep putting in the work… being a good person… and letting the stress go.. you will live a harmonious life. Keep taking those steps and moving forward!

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of July 7, 2018

The crystals I am working with for the week are Lapis Lazuli, Amethyst and Blue Flame Aura 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 crystals to you.

Lapis Lazuli – Enhances wisdom, memory, intellect and good judgment. Encourages honesty. It is a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. It reveals inner truth, and promotes self-awareness. Helps to relieve suppressed issues. Opens to new ideas, dreams and visions. Lapis releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. Expands awareness and enlightenment, enhancing dream work.

Amethyst – A meditative and calming stone which promotes calm, balance, and peace. It is used to eliminate impatience. Beneficial for legal problems and money issues. Increases spirituality and enhances intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. It is a stone of protection. Promotes peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. Brings emotional stability and inner strength and helps to enhance flexibility and cooperation. To be flexible at need is a sure sign of strength. Well known as a sobriety stone. It is used to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc, and destructive compulsive behaviours of all kinds.

Blue Flame Aura Quartz – Excellent for use in spiritual initiations and rituals, and for deepening meditation and spiritual attunement. It creates a multi-dimensional energy shift, drawing kundalini energy up the spine and through the subtle bodies, adjusting its effect to provide what each soul needs for evolution. Stimulates the Third Eye and Higher Crown Chakras, enhancing focus and increasing the ability to “read” people at an energetic and subtle level and to understand the information that was communicated. It is a beneficial stone for creating and maintaining a state of homeostasis within the physical and emotional bodies. It has a high energy and is helpful for removing energy blockages, especially those impeding creativity.

We need to be honest with ourselves. If we continue to justify all the reasons why we make poor choices, we will just continue to make the same poor choices. We need to be more self-aware of where we sabotage ourselves and our potential. Being angry and resentful about it only creates more negative energy, and manifests more problems. You need to be more flexible and go with the flow. We need to stay calm and patient. We need to stay centred and balanced. We need to trust the Universe will provide and come through for us. We need to do our part by keeping our bodies and minds as healthy as possible. We need to live from a place of faith. When you can find the space inside of you, where you are centred and calm, that is where you unlock more of your spiritual potential. This is how you open the flow. Being in this state allows you to see things as they are, and let them go. There really is no reason to be anything other than happy. Let’s see what the cards say for the week.

We still seem to be experiencing major challenges. Elk is about standing tall during struggles and getting through them, even if you have to slow down. Elk brings a beautiful message about loving ourselves first and standing tall in our confidence. It’s true, that you teach people how to treat you. When you love and respect yourself, you allow and expect nothing less from the people around you. Always stand tall and be proud of who you are, don’t let anyone ever make you feel bad about yourself, especially your own self! We are our own harshest critics. You deserve the same good things as anyone else on this planet, you are just as worthy. Remember that and remind yourself often. Camel reminds us to keep the faith that everything is working out for the best. Even in the harshest of conditions, camel finds a way to get through. Trust that you have everything you need and you can get through whatever comes your way. All truly is well, and you ar protected. Cardinal is reminding us of balance. We need time to work hard. We need time to be still and be in the flow, and open ourselves spiritually. We also need time to play and experience physical pleasure. We need to balance all the facets of our human nature, as they are all equally important to our well-being. Try to do what you can to find more balance in your life, and it will definitely help you conquer any challenges that arise.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of December 18, 2016

The crystals I am working with for the week are Jet, Apache Tears, Blue Goldstone and Black Tourmaline. 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 crystals to you. 


Jet – Purifies and protects. Protects against sickness, negative energy and violence. Protects finances and business pursuits. Good for cleansing the aura. Has a calming energy and heals grief. Eases anxiety and depression, calming anxious or fearful thinking. Brings about inner growth, increase self-reliance, and ease change in any areas of life. Used to treat ailments ranging from epilepsy, migraines, colds, lymphatic problems, congestive heart failure, tumors, toothache, stomach pains, menstrual cramps, fertility of male and female, scrofula (lymphatic tuberculosis), clinical depression, manic-depression or bipolar disorder, liver, kidney, and glandular problems.  


Apache Tears – The Legend of the Apache Tear is this: One day a party of Apache Indians was ambushed by an enemy tribe. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leaped from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already. Apache Tears are said to relieve grief and sadness. They assist in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions and balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones, said to bring good luck to anyone who has one. Apache Tears are a gently grounding stone. Apache Tears are reputed to alleviate muscle spasms and eliminate toxins from the body. 


Blue Goldstone – A good deflector of unwanted energies. Highly regarded as a protection mineral. It is a nervous system stimulant and enhances transmission of healing energies from the hands. Protects the psychic and empathic sensitivities. While this is technically a man-made piece, it does contain copper, which in itself is extremely helpful in the areas of inflammation and increasing ones blood flow.


Black Tourmaline – Grounding stone. A well known purifying stone that deflects and transforms negative energy. It can transform and remove negativity from an individual or an environment. It is often used as an aura cleanser, and can help one attain higher levels of awareness. Also used for repelling and protecting one from black magick, evil spirits, and is often said to return the negative spell to the sender. Deflects EMF radiation from tv’s, computers, etc.

You can tell by the crystals that we are moving into the Christmas season. A time when we need to be protected from energies around us. A time when we need to protect ourselves from negative energy. You may be experiencing anxiety or grief during this season, and these crystals are here to help you ease those emotions. We are also being reminded of purification, so be mindful of overindulging or doing things that are harmful to your mind, body, spirit. Let’s see what the cards have to tell us for the week. 


The cards tell us to have faith and trust this holiday season. Try to let go of worry and stress, and know everything will work out. Turn to your trusted friends and family to get support. Take time to rest and rejuvenate yourself. Give yourself love instead of feeding yourself worry. When you allow yourself rest and give yourself love, you can trust in the universe will provide all the resources you need. Relax and enjoy the holiday season! 

Camel – Sometimes it feels like your on a journey across a vast, lifeless desert that stretches beyond the horizon with no end in sight. Traipsing across the seemingly barren landscape before you, your thirst for comfort and solace during these times can most readily be satisfied by looking to your inner resources. All the experiences you’ve had in your life time, the challenges you’ve successfully faced, and the wealth of knowledge you’ve accumulated can be called on to not only cope with any type of adversity that presents itself, but to help you move forward with courage and determination. First, identify where you want to go and then proceed slowly, steadily, and deliberately toward that objective. As you move along, castaway your fears, doubts, and hesitations wherever they arise, letting the four winds lift them up to the sun to be burned away. Ease your mind and heart, and know that all is well and that you’re protected at all times. Call upon those helping spirit to have assisted you up until this point in your journey. You have what it takes, and you will get through this! Associations: Resourcefulness; Determination; Steadiness; Fortitude; Endurance; Stamina; Focus; Optimism; Containment; Centeredness; Adaptability; Equality; Justice; Strength; Survival; Replenishment; Positivity; Accomplishment

Meerkat – The people in your life would love to offer their support to you, your only job is to receive it and, indeed, sometimes even ask for it. Those whom you feel closest to and trust the most are the individuals you can rely on to be there for you, especially when you really need it. People who are dealing with dire illnesses and have the support of friends and family members usually fair the best, however, you certainly don’t need to experience such an extreme situation to take advantage of the love and care that others have to offer. Write down a list of names of people you trust the most, and then go back through it and identify three traits in each of these individuals that makes you trust them. When you’re finished, you’ll not only have a good idea of the qualities in those you rely on, but you’ll also have a clear notion of the characteristics that make a person trustworthy in your eyes. Sure, you’ve been burned or disappointed at one time or another when you trusted someone and were let down or betrayed. Everyone has experienced this. So now you may be afraid that if you let others in and count on them for support, something similar will happen. Those memories, consciously or subconsciously, will not only filter out any chance of being disappointed or hurt, it will also serve to keep others who are trustworthy at a distance. Look under that filter and listen to what your gut instinct tells you about a particular individual. How do they match up with the list of characteristics you find trustworthy? Take a chance and let yourself receive love and support. Associations: Family; Community; Group Support; Vigilance; Observation; Intelligence; Energy Conservation; Communication; Resilience; Protectiveness; Grooming; Playfulness 

Goose – The irony of this is that by restricting and conserving your energy, you can actually mobilize your internal resources for the next cycle of work and accomplish that much more. In this fast-paced world with all of its pressures that impinge upon you, it’s difficult to take regular periods of time off, yet it’s critical to your health and well-being to do so. Let this rest period be an opportunity when you do the things that help your body recover from the stresses and strains of your most recent activities. Sleep in, get a massage, spend some time playing with a friend, take a salt bath, get out of town and explore the woods, anything that will bring you peace of mind. At the conclusion of a long spell of continuous, stressful activity, even when it has been productive, many people don’t allow themselves a period of respite, and instead jump into another task right away without relaxing and enjoying the fruits of their labor. It’s most unnatural, but in a caffeinated society were technology has created instant access to phones, emails, and Internet, it’s easy to give away your power of choice by reacting to a false sense of immediacy and urgency to these trappings of civilization. Turn off your phone and computer, and enjoy the sunset. These periods of rest needn’t be lengthy, but you do need to implement them, especially right now. Associations: Perseverance; Migration; Levelheadedness; Loyalty; Family; Determination; Resourcefulness; Quest; Integrity; Purposeful; Imprinting; Compassion; Conservation
