The crystals I am working with for the year are Aventurine, Blue-Green Onyx, and Blue Chalcedony. 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.
Aventurine – Known as the “Stone of Opportunity”. Thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth, or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. This beautiful stone, however, is not merely an attractor of luck, but one that aligns conditions to be favourable for opportunities. Releases old patterns, habits and disappointments so new growth can take place. It brings optimism and a zest for life, allowing one to move forward with confidence and to embrace change. It enhances one’s creativity and motivation, and encourages perseverance in maneuvering life’s obstacles.
Blue-green Onyx – Opens the chakras. Brings good fortune and Spiritual encouragement. Helps shift negative perceptions. Helps you to move forward from grief and depression. Increases happiness and contentment. Helps with public speaking. A symbol of restfulness and purity. Invites more calm and relaxation in your life. Relieves worries, tension, stress and fears. Enhances love, affection and friendship.
Chalcedony – A stone for speakers. A stone of peace, it encourages stillness and calm. Eases self-doubt. It can remove hostility and encourage a light-hearted optimism. Calms and centres emotions. Helps worriers live in the present. Calms anger, fear, panic and anxiety. Enables us to communicate and express our truth. Blue Chalcedony is the color of water reflecting the sky as winter gives way to spring, and is a color of faith and trust. The light blue color helps us reflect on, question, and relax in our acceptance of the life we have. Helps us develop patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They’re excellent for recovery efforts from addictions or destructive patterns, aid in curbing tempers, and help us become more dependable and cheerful. Light blue crystals also assist in dealing with grief, letting go of the past, and curing guilt.
To be very honest, I pulled a card of guidance for us all yesterday, for New Year’s Eve, but then I didn’t post it. I’ve been struggling a little bit, with ongoing health issues in our family. It was hard getting a call the day before New Year’s, reminding me that all our problems haven’t disappeared. It was fitting with the full moon, as it brought up a lot of emotions for me, but they dissipated just as quickly. I was reminded that we are always going to have appointments and procedures and issues to deal with, and that I can’t keep waiting to be happy until everything is perfect. Nothing is ever going to be perfect. I almost let it ruin my New Year’s, but then I reminded myself that we were ok in this moment and that it was ok to be happy and feel joy now. The card I had pulled yesterday was “The Universe is always conspiring to support me, guide me, and lead me compassionately towards my highest good”. It was a reminder, that even amongst the challenges in life, that everything is serving a purpose. I’m always wanting life to be easy for me… and that’s exactly how I create resistance. Life is never going to be easy. The more you can handle and let bounce off you, the easier (and more joyful) life is going to be. The more you can flow with life, no matter what it brings, the better off you will be. Yes, I’m dreading going to the hospital, but when I’m there, I always have beautiful conversations and interactions. I have to look for the positives, and the moments of joy, in every day. No matter what.
So, of course these vibes continue for the reading for the year of 2021. I have seen a lot of astrology posts calling for an even more tumultuous year than 2020. It’s apparent, we are going to have more challenges to face and overcome… but just like the hospital procedures, it’s really not all bad if you can see the big picture. I looked back at my reading from 2020, and you could see the foreshadowing of the challenges to come, but my readings are generally quite optimistic. I wish I could say this was always my personal outlook, but this is the guidance I get from my Spirit when I do my readings. This is I why I trust in the need to remain optimistic and positive. It is obviously very important to our well-being. What else is there to do? Dwelling on our problems doesn’t not serve us at all! It actually creates more problems, like depression and anxiety. I’m not saying to carelessly ignore your problems, but to handle them with intelligence, and not attach to them emotionally. We are not our problems, or what happens to us. We are so much more than that. So, in my usual fashion, I can already tell this reading is going to focus on the positives 2021 is going to bring. Opportunities are the biggest theme that has been coming up. There are so many opportunities and ideas for us. One of the things about people being home for the last year, is that people have been spending the time working on their creative passions. There is tons of opportunities around creative pursuits. Not only is Aventurine bringing so much luck, but it is also doing so much more than that. It is aligning our life in better ways, so that we can overcome our fears and challenges and be happy and successful. When we align our energy and our life in more positive ways, it opens up so many opportunities. I always say, the world is smaller than it seems, so let yourself be seen. The right person might just notice you. Part of aligning, is truly letting go of the past for good. Letting go of old beliefs, habits, disappointments, and patterns, so that we can grow. We need to stop inhibiting our growth, and give ourselves the light, water, love and nutrients we need to thrive. The Aventurine reminds us there are always going to be challenges to overcome. Get good at it. Be creative with your problem solving. Be confident and motivated. The Blue-Green Onyx is encouraging us to shift from negative perceptions. Running around like a chicken with your head cut off, stressing yourself out, isn’t helping anything. We need to focus more on stress relief and relaxation. We need to let go of the hurt, pain, and depression. There is good fortune on the way for us, and we must stay positive. We have to be happy and content with our life right now, as it is. When we truly love ourselves and our life, more love and affection grows, and more people come into our life to bring us love and affection. This year, we need to keep our calm. We have things we will need to speak out about. Be confident and allow yourself to be heard. It might be time to re-read The Power of Now, because living in the moment is going to be crucial to enjoying our lives and being happy. What can you do to make this moment happy and enjoyable? Being mad, fearful, or anxious isn’t going to help the situation. Be calm and have trust and faith. Be happy with who you are and what you have. Be patient with life, and with yourself. Yes, it would be nice to have unlimited resources, but we have to be grateful for what we have right now. Trust that life is working out in your highest good. Do your part to help yourself get to a good place. Find the calm in your heart. I feel like a lot of social change is going to happen this year, and we are going to make better choices for our world. Be a part of this change and do good with what you can. Use your talents and your voice to create positive change. If you do this, you will find so many opportunities unfold for you. Let’s see what the cards say!
I love these cards. Spirit wasn’t even waiting for me today, the cards just came falling right out. To The Sea is all about being in the flow of life. Rowing against the current gets us nowhere…. but if we flow with life, we get moved out of the rough waters and taken somewhere beautiful. She’s not micromanaging her direction, she’s not even looking out. She’s looking down at her own plan, doing her own part preparing herself, and letting life lead the way. The bubbles to me represent opportunities, and you can also see Spirit watching through the clouds, guiding us all the way. We are starting to see how all the pieces have fit together so far… and we are understanding that no matter how the pieces appear now, they will fit together eventually. Everything seems to work out when you stop scrambling. Allow a sea of opportunities to wash over you and wake you up to your most prosperous potential. Give without expectation, and you will see miracles. We need to stop resisting and flow. Mending is about fixing the parts of our life that aren’t working. Our negative beliefs, especially about ourselves. This is the last card in this deck, and one I receive often. We are putting closure to our past for good. We are forgiving ourselves and others. We are finding healing for our soul. If we go through painful experiences and don’t process them, integrate them, and take only the positive lessons, then you will accumulate trauma and heaviness. We carry this trauma around and stay chained to the very thing that hurt us. Reclaim your power by letting go of these things, and stop replaying them in your mind. We’ve all made mistakes. We are all human. Set yourself free from the chains of the past. This is not who you are any more. If you are in a rocky relationship, letting go of the past can help you truly move forward, whether that is with your partner or not. Either way, the energy needs to clear, and keeping your heart closed is not the answer. You have the power to heal this wound. Yes, we have probably made so many mistakes in the past, but now is our chance to move forward and make new choices. You get to start again, wiser and more mature. Forgive those who have taken advantage of you. Let go, and learn from this. Nothing is ever lost or wasted. Everything serves a purpose and a lesson. Pain and suffering is a part of life, and none of us are immune to it. Can you view this pain as a way back to your spirituality? Let your sorrow break your heart wide open. You will never be left behind. You are loved, now more than ever. One day you will look back and know this as truth. This is your chance to make a new choice. To make changes that resonate with who you are now, and who you strive to be. The choice is yours. You can choose to stay where you are, doing things as you’ve always done, or you can take a new path. This time, Spirit is inside you, guiding you from within. The owl shows how much wisdom you hold. The banners remind us that we only have so much time here on Earth, and we must use it to our greatest advantage. I just noticed the turtle on the antler. The turtle is a symbol of creation. We have so many ideas and inspirations that are going to lead to opportunities. Every choice has a consequence. He also has an apple with him, a sign of abundance and good health. Are you making choices that will lead to positive consequences? Will you further your dreams by taking a path unknown? Or will you stick to what you have known? There is no wrong choice, but it is important that you do consciously recognize you are making a choice, that you DO have a choice. If you want to change, you have to choose it. Who do I need to become, and what do I need to believe, in order to live a life of prosperity? Know that abundance is all around you. Choose to see it and reach out for it. Work towards it and make things happen. The more opportunities you recognize around you, the more you can reach out and grab them. Yes, this year might have challenges, but know that you have the strength and choice to overcome them in positive ways. Heed the lessons and leave the rest behind, as we enter a new year of opportunity.
Wishing you unlimited blessings and prosperity in 2021! 🙏🥂🎉
