Oh my gosh you guys! I’m so sorry I’ve been on a hiatus again.. for over a month! It’s now been one year since my son was diagnosed with Leukemia, he was 3 at the time. I just happened to be organizing pictures from my cell phone, and it was like re-living those days. We are still living those days, although things are going well and we get are getting through this thing. I have been feeling so overwhelmed with how far we’ve come, and how far there is yet to go. I guess I was feeling a little overwhelmed with life in general. Just the everyday mom duties were taking a toll, and I was feeling uninspired and run down. I just knew in my heart is was ok to take a break. I know nobody probably cares anyway!! I didn’t know how long I needed, but I knew I would be back when I was ready. Let me tell you, it’s been a slow process getting this reading done. The energy is still a bit heavy. I have been learning a lot lately, I have been taking a Certified Mediumship Course with Carmel Baird, and I think my mind and body just needed time to integrate everything I’ve been learning. It’s been a lot. The astrology readings I’ve seen lately go along with this energy, so I’m just trying to accept it how it is and try to nurture myself (I wrote this before doing my reading… nurture is definitely a key word this week!). So thank you for your understanding! Thank you for being here to read my blog! I truly appreciate it!! Let see what the message is for the week.
The crystals I am working with for the week are Tree Jasper, Lava Rock, and Rainbow Moonstone. 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.
Tree Jasper – The “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. Used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying, it is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. Balances the physical, mental and emotional bodies. It is a stone of strength, courage and determination. Jasper stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. It can really assist people who need more focus, organization abilities, and motivation.
Lava Rock – Grounds and calms the emotions. A stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Lava stones are good for stabilizing and grounding because of the strong connection to the Earth and it’s creation within the centre of Earth. In folk remedies, it was given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle. A stone of courage and gives people stability as they go through changes in their lives. When a person is drawn to lava rock it might be because they need the fire or energy in their life.
Rainbow Moonstone – Has a gentle, calming energy. It helps to strengthen intuition and psychic perception, and enhances creativity, compassion, endurance and inner confidence. It is a stone that brings balance, harmony, and hope. The Rainbow effect brings in a spectrum of light, and can help with clearing and bringing in uplifting energies. It has been said to have the power to grant wishes. Rainbow Moonstone encourages introspection, yielding easier decision making. It also enhances one’s emotional vision, bringing greater creative abilities and freedom of expression. This is enhanced by Rainbow Moonstone’s ability to open one up to increased synchronicity that we often cannot see due to being wrapped up in our daily routines. Rainbow Moonstone can also offer increased patience and allowing, so those newly found synchronicities can flow into our lives unimpeded. A stone of intuition and insight, Moonstone helps us to connect to all the different cycles we experience in life. Moonstone helps balance the emotional body, especially any aggressive tendencies. Many people find moonstone to be very soothing and use it to help relieve stress.
The crystals are telling me we’ve been a bit stressed out.. We need to cool it and calm down a bit! We need to ground and nurture ourselves. We are working and pushing so hard, there’s a lack of balance. What we need to do is find our calm. Our inner zen. Our place where we can just let life and inspiration flow. We need to spend more time nurturing our creativity. That’s how the heart expresses itself and releases energy. There is a lot of Earth energies within the crystals too, so we need to be nurtured by the Earth, and in turn be inspired to create. Relax a bit. Stop and smell the flowers. Feel the breeze on your face. Don’t be so wrapped up in life that you miss the synchronicities, because they will be there! Watch for the Earth signs, the animal signs, the songs, the things that mean something to you. I promise there is a deeper meaning, and all you have to do is be open, notice, and appreciate the signs. We are changing and growing and birthing new ideas, and that can always be scary and stressful. Find ways to get creative and release that stress, and share your creations with world! Let’s see which cards are chosen for this week.
The cards confirm that we are in a period of transforming and growing, shapeshifting. Every moment we move, learn and grow. Try not to worry when things get tough, because just like the clouds, things will continue to shift. I love that there was the Moonstone crystal and a Moon card! The New Moon card show us there is so much beauty and promise on the horizon. Just try to relax and enjoy the view! We don’t need to be so angry and worked up all the time. We can calmly speak up and express ourselves. We can make our boundaries clear with those around us who push us and try to take advantage of us. Do not internalize this anymore. Speak up for yourself. Take your power back. If we don’t speak up for ourselves, who will? How will people know how to treat us or what to expect from us? Are you just going to keep letting life and other people take control? Or are you going to take your power back, and do what it takes for you to be whole, and happy? If you don’t ask, nobody will ever answer you. Although this week is still a bit rocky, things are shifting, and there is beauty and promise of new beginnings on the horizon. Just try to stay calm and let the dark clouds dissipate, and stay in your power by being true to you.
Clouds (Shapeshifting) – When tiny droplets of water or frozen crystals are surrounded by billions of other droplets or crystals, a cloud is formed. Each of these tiny droplets diffuse and scatter light so that the tops of the clouds are white then fade to gray towards the base. The nature of cloud formations affects our mood as well as the temperature on the ground and in the air. Their shape, movement, and colouration tell us what weather to expect in the near future, and they nourish our visual hunger during breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Most of us have had an opportunity at one time or another to notice the shapes and forms clouds take as a drift gently or boldly across the sky, constantly shifting and changing, adjusting themselves to the requirements of their nature. When we take time to simply observe, we can see the cloud people – images that are an elegant collaboration between nature and our imagination. In both subtle and more dramatic ways, you can shape shift your choice of clothing, hairstyle, adornments, and even mannerisms (such as facial expression, gestures, and the way you walk). By adjusting these along with your internal attitude, you can actually display different personas. When you experiment with these variations of self-expression that are not how you ordinarily present your self, others will react to you, depending on the degree in which your persona contrast with the one they are most for familiar with. Be like the clouds as you try out different forms, stretching your limits at times, willing to move and adjust as necessary. Lift your head up, square your shoulders, and stand tall such that your chest and heart open to the world, and note how this feels. You may feel vulnerable at first, but stay with it. Then let your shoulders fall forward slightly, pull your chest inward an inch or two, and let your head drop a little, observe how this feels. Experiment with contracting your aura, (your energy field), then expand it as far as you comfortably can. By this kind of shape shifting you can consciously choose your expression into the world. Just remember who you are at the core.
New Moon (Promise) – Gazing at the sliver of the new moon smiling down upon them, the couple embraces each other, welcoming the promise of their love. The fading sun drapes the clouds and waters with a tinge of luminescence, as the crescent opens its arms to the nearby planet Venus, named after the Roman goddess of love. This is a time for manifestation, beginnings, and renewal, with the promise that our desires will come to fruition. Here Grandmother Moon initiates another lunar cycle, moving from darkness to fullness and back again over approximately one month. Her promise of what is to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtain of darkness that had recently encompassed her. It is a promise that has been kept for as long as she has existed. This is the time to launch and project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put into action what is required to fully realize this idea. A promise has two meanings: It can be a commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen, or it can apply that something specific is expected to happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your attention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept.
Polar Bear – When you express yourself from your heart AND from a place of power, it’s an unbeatable combination. You don’t need to growl or bully, nor do you need to fade into the background and deny yourself the opportunity to directly affect the situation. By showing up and being completely present, even when you’re simply listening, you’re a force to be reckoned with. Ask for what you want, and see what happens. Don’t get worked up about how it turns out. You may or may not get what you want, but at least your chances are much better if you ask. As for setting boundaries with others (such as saying no to request or demand) when you do so, they may respect those boundaries or try to test them. If they do test the limits you’ve set, stand your ground, be clear, and don’t apologize. Approach the situation with the purity and innocence of a child and the focussed intensity of a true warrior – one who doesn’t speak or act from anger, but from a place of truth and dignity. Know that when you do so, you’ll have nothing to fear.
