The crystals I am working with for the week are Yellow Jasper, Red Jasper, and Amber. 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.
Yellow Jasper – A stone of protection. Provides inner strength and mental clarity. It holds a deep connection to the Earth and is good for grounding. Amplifies self-confidence and courage, bringing energy and enthusiasm. Deflects jealousy, and makes an excellent shield if you are the object of petty gossip. Eases chronic worries and self-consciousness about what others say or think, and helps to overcome fears of being alone in public. A good stone for dieting, it lends emotional support and strength in self-discipline, as well as boosting physical energy levels. Soothes the digestive system. Promotes inner strength, helping one to bear life’s frustrating experiences and providing the tenacity and perseverance to overcome them. It encourages enthusiasm and joy, and helps attract positive friendships. Yellow Jasper brings new interests and new relationships, helping you to see things in a different light. It adds clarity, zest, optimism, and meaning to your life.
Red Jasper – A stone of fairness and justice because its energy is used to decrease injustice and help in unfair situations. Helps you take all of your energy and use it in a balanced manner. Used for protection. It is said to be outstanding for promoting survival and overcoming survival issues. It has very nurturing energy and can help with ancestral/inherited issues. It is also said to enhance responsibility, choice, and compassion.
Amber – Gives a soothing light energy that is both calming and energizing. Helps manifest desires and heighten intellectual abilities, clarity of thought, and wisdom. It is reputed to cleanse its environment by drawing out negativity, and to relieve physical pain the same way. It is used mystically to bring the energies of patience, protection, psychic shielding, romantic love, sensuality, purification, balance, healing and calmness. It is considered a good luck charm for love and marriage. Amber is excellent in crystal healing for inner child work and past life work.
Even though things have been tough, we have what it takes to survive and make it through. It’s hard not to feel frustrated and like we are running out of energy. Sometimes, life isn’t fair. It’s just the way it is. In my personal belief, God sees us endure these hard times, and rewards us with good karma for overcoming them, and not letting them break our spirit. If this pandemic has taught us anything, I hope it has shown us that we are as delicate a species as any other, and our environment must be protected for future generations. We are deeply connected to the Earth and we need remember and honour this connection. We need to stay grounded during times like these. Letting fears and negativity take over is not going to help anything! We are being protected and guided by spirit, and spirit asks us to do the same for the Earth. We are all part of this reciprocal cycle. What is our job if not to love the Earth we were born upon, that provides us our every need? We have everything we need, in the most basic and simplest of ways… we need to stop complicating life. We don’t need to have it all… we just need to be happy right now. We definitely need to stop worrying about what others think. There is always going to be someone who has something negative to say. Don’t even listen. Be you, and be confident in who you are. Be flattered that they feel the need to talk about you… because you are beautiful and talented. Remember that next time you feel threatened or jealous. Maybe there is something you admire about that person, and maybe you’d benefit more from having love for them, than jealousy. You can wish negativity upon others, but it really just comes back to you like a mirror. The only real answer is love. It’s always love. This applies to your body too. Thinking negatively about it doesn’t help anything… but loving it, appreciating it, and treating it well really does. We are being guided and supported on our journey, and we will have the energy to achieve what we set out to achieve. This is a great time to watch what you eat and work out more. Watching your diet can help your digestive system recover. We have grown so strong, and we can overcome any challenges that we face. We also can’t let these obstacles beat us down. There is so much more of life left to live…. friends to make… romances… laughter and joy… don’t let what you’ve been through make you hard or cold. Keep your heart open. Feel that spark and zest for life. There are so many opportunities to come… so much meaning left to experience. Keep a positive optimistic attitude so you can be open to these opportunities. You can’t meet anyone if you don’t talk to people or try. One conversation could change your whole life. You are responsible for your life. You are responsible for your choices. Yes, things might have been unfair, but remember that karma is coming to balance things out for you. Let it go. Be responsible and choose a positive way to move forward. This week, we need to find a way to get our spirit calm, while reenergizing our body and mind. We need to continuing putting the work in towards our goals and dreams. Let your life exude an air of love and passion… for yourself.. for others.. for Earth. Let there be so much love. Let’s see what the cards say.
The Nightingale Spirit card is so beautiful to me. Love is all around. Even during these hard times.. there is still so much love. This is about loving the life you live. Surrounding yourself with music and joy. Wearing the crown and owning your life with beauty, grace, and confidence. Letting your song be heard… and received with love. This bird is reminding us that our troubles will be over soon. The sun will rise again. This bird is calling you to rise to a new level of self-awareness and connect to your light. Not only connect, but shine your light brightly. Yes, there are shadows and darkness, but love exists everywhere. Have trust, faith, and optimism in the future. Remember that it all comes back to love. Do whatever you need to do to feel happy and joyful in your soul. Do whatever it takes to truly love yourself. It’s worth it. Karma is real. God is real. How you treat yourself matters. The Eagle and The Rainbow are 2 cards I get often, and they both came flying out together. The Eagle is spirit watching over us, guiding us through this darkness… to find our light again. The Rainbow reminds us the storm will pass, and we will be blessed because of it. The Eagle reminds us that we need to get back to our connection to nature. We can’t let our egos drive our lives, when all we need is our most simplistic nature to find happiness. This is about being confident and letting our spirits soar. We have so much potential… it’s time for us to step into that potential. If we do the hard work to get through this storm, we will be blessed with beautiful lives. This card is my sign that everything is going to be ok. I always see a rainbow when I need it most. This planet is a beautiful garden, even if it does not appear so. We need to treat it as such. To exist on this planet is a miracle, not to be understated. Feel blessed to be alive, and to be able to make a difference. Stop letting your past hold you back, and use it as a springboard to help others. There is a reason for the Chaos and Conflict. Even if we can’t see it or don’t understand it. Everything that happens, happens for a reason. Maybe we aren’t appreciating our lives, maybe we aren’t appreciating our partners, maybe we aren’t appreciating ourselves, maybe we aren’t appreciating our planet… There is a reason for the things that are occurring, and to think that we are above the order of nature is just plain egotistical. Consider that the value of this chaos might end up serving you well. Scattered to the winds, you leave behind parts of yourself that no longer serves you. All these cards have been reminding me of last week, when I stood outside in a blizzard, and just let the wind whip around me. As much as I was despising the weather, I stood there and just smiled, because I knew that the weather would be nice again soon. Feel comfort when things are crappy, because it means good times are coming. Every storm passes, and sometimes it is necessary to re-order things. Conflict provides a way to see another side of a situation. Sometimes, airing out a conflict can be eye opening and very healing. This is a time to understand. Understand what other people are going through. Understanding what you are going through, and how it can work in your favour. Try not to be stubborn or make the negativity worse. Be present in the chaos and see it for it’s true value. Let yourself transform into the person you were always meant to become, and don’t try to fight it. Remember that the storm will pass and blessings are on the way. Do your part to be on the good side of karma!
