The crystals I am working with for the week are Apricot Agate, Angel Aura Quartz and Rose 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 crystal to you.
Apricot Agate – Balances Yin/Yang energy and helps emotional, physical and mental balance. Helps relieve distress when things seem beyond our control. Strengthens the bond between parent and child. It is a protector of relationships, people and objects.
Angel Aura Quartz – A stone of high spiritual energy. It is said that it is very helpful to the aura which it can protect, balance, and bring energetic health. It is said to help with Angelic communication and communicating with Higher Self and inner wisdom. It is used to help access Akashic records and past life recall. It is said to bring peace and tranquility because of the angelic protection it brings.
Rose Quartz – A stone of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. Enhances every type of love. Bringing love into life and daily situations not only brings inner warmth, but it also lowers stress and soothes those around it. Rose Quartz inspires the love of beauty, in oneself and others, in nature, and especially that which stimulates the imagination – art, music and the written word. A very happy stone. It is used to raise self-esteem and gives a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy. It is used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety. All these things carry energies of forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion, enabling us to see the good in both ourselves and others.
With this big full super moon there is a lot of energy. So much, that it can feel uncomfortable. Things may seem out of control right now… like there is nothing you can do to feel better, and things are piling up. I know this because I’ve been going through it too. It’s been a tough week for me, and no matter how many times I try to feel good, something goes awry. Every time I try to get on top of things, life has other plans. I have had this feeling of fear creeping over my shoulder the last couple days… like something is bound to go wrong… like things are going to fall apart at any moment. I have a lot on my plate this week! Yesterday, I started listing off my problems and worries, and I hated the way I sounded! I became so conscious of the energy I was putting out by complaining…. what I was telling myself over and over in my head… and honestly… what was it helping? Worrying truly just perpetuates negative energy! There really is nothing to worry about ever! Yeah, I got a ton on my plate, but I will get through it! I always do. I will try to be prepared and do the best I can, and that is all I can do! I will try to enjoy what I can along the way, and appreciate the connections and synchronicities! The planets right now are in a very special alignment, with all planets moving in a direct forward motion, and 5 of them in their home signs. It’s time for us to get aligned too. Even just closing your eyes for 2 mins and envisioning 7 lights at your chakras moving into perfect alignment down your body and shining bright. Wiping them clean and seeing them shine brighter and brighter. You can envision them coloured or not. Usually I do, but right now, I see them as bright white lights, all in alignment. Spend some time working on your emotions this week, having fun or talking to a friend, whatever you need to do to express yourself. Spend sometime working on your physical body, making healthy food choices or working out. Have a good mental balance too, working hard but taking breaks when you need them. Find a healthy balance. When you feel yourself falling out of alignment, feel out which area you need to focus on. When you can be more aligned and balanced, you reflect that for your kids too. They see how to behave in a balanced manner. I was lucky enough to watch a presentation this week by Dr. Jody Carrington called “It Takes a Village”. She talked about how the most important thing we can do as parents is teach our kids to emotionally regulate, and demonstrate what it looks like to be emotionally regulated. We all need other people we can rely on to help us in life. We need our friends, family, and community, and our kids need all of us too. We have to learn to calm ourselves (or our children) before we (or they) can learn from it. We have to calm ourselves (or them) over and over again to enforce those responses. Also, it’s harder to do for your own kids, so spend time with your friends and help them with their kids! Let them help you with yours! We are all truly connected and meant to work together. So it’s not surprising to see messages of alignment and children here. When we can have better relationships with our selves, we can have better relationships with our kids, or any kids for that matter! Everything starts with our own choices. The Angel Aura Quartz is a crystal I use often, and it is a sure sign that the Angels are with us. They are helping us and protecting us. They was us to be peaceful and enjoy tranquil lives. It all starts and ends with loving ourselves. The Rose Quartz is THE crystal for love and self-love. Bring love into your daily life. Bring yourself flowers for your desk. Have a delicious coffee. Listen to music while you do chores. Take breaks. Be loving to others too. Help other people’s kids. Help a stranger. See the beauty around you, and see what a blessing it is to be alive. Believe in yourself and see the good in yourself. There truly are unlimited potentials!! Unlock more and more as you shift to a more positive vibration! Let’s see what the cards say for the week!
We all want to know where we are going. We want to know how things are supposed to be in some ideal, perfect, fantasy kind of way. What would we ever learn if we knew everything? If things were perfect? If we knew how everything was going to go? If we knew exactly what was right for us and wrong? Life is about the journey, and the only moment that truly matters is this very one. How are you choosing to act in this very moment? Are you appreciating the beauty that surrounds you? This card, Mintakan, is another representation that the Universe is here supporting us. This card is about finding the things and places that give you peace in life. Create peace and tranquility for yourself. If things are hard and unfair, do what you can for yourself to make life good and find balance. Spend time where you feel calm and get realigned. Take charge of your life and your happiness. Set boundaries where you need to help with your happiness and alignment. Don’t be afraid to say no, or find a sitter and have quiet time. Find more balance in your work schedule, maybe scheduling personal days just for you. Fill your cup as much as you can. Allow yourself to feel held by others. It’s just like Dr. Carrington seeing me in the crowd… trust that other people will listen to you and offer support and love.. trust that they truly see you. I see a lot of moms charging through, working so hard and not wanting to burden or rely on others. I’m the worst!! For a while, you can do it, but over a period of time, your energy gets depleted and you get out of alignment… your lights get dim. Do what you need to do for you. Cord cutting treatments and energy clearings are perfect for this time during the intense super moon. Don’t Dim To Fit In is a repeat from last week, so it’s a very important message. You have energy this world needs, so shine and allow yourself to be seen. However you feel inclined to put yourself out there, please do it. Speak up and be heard. Your opinions and thoughts matter. You matter. We all matter. How can you love someone else and not love yourself? You are them and they are you. We are all valid. We all have gifts to share. All you have to do is try your best! When you feel fearful, replace it with thoughts of love. When you are stressed out, find ways to replace it with feelings of relaxation. Use meditation and stillness. Have a bath. Work out. Do whatever you need. Calm yourself and then learn from it. Thanks Dr. Jody Carrington!!
