The crystals I am working with for the week are Chalcedony, Banded Agate and Blue Lace 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.
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.
Banded Agate – Called the earth rainbow. Increases concentration, honesty and memory. It helps bring spiritual experiences into everyday reality. Brings love to the chakras to rid negative energy.
Blue Lace Agate – A stone of confidence and communication. Inspires loyalty and trustworthiness. It is a support crystal for all caregivers, speakers and teachers, calming stress-related situations and overcoming communication difficulties. Helpful if you struggle to express your emotions. It dissolves old blockage patterns and doubt, and permits new methods of self-expression and growth. Promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Encourages thinking before speaking.
This week, we continue to try to find calm and peace in our life. Things have been hectic, busy and tough. All we want is to feel light and happy, but things haven’t exactly been going our way. When things aren’t easy or smooth, it’s so hard to feel like life is good to us. We are spending way too much time worrying. We have to understand, that things aren’t always going to be easy… in fact, rarely are things going to be perfect. We have to accept our life as it is, and make the best of it. We have to find peace within, especially when things are tough. We have to look at the bright side and remain optimistic. We have to trust and hold faith that life will always bless us, and that everything that happens is meant to be. There is no point of melting down. That doesn’t help anyone, especially yourself. There is a lot about communication here. When you find yourself stressed and at your limit, are you able to find a place of calm? Are you able to communicate your emotions in positive and constructive ways? You have to find a way to be happy every day, no matter how tough things are. Run through your gratitude list, and remind yourself how blessed you actually are. This week is about evolving our communication skills, finding new ways to express ourselves and grow. We are learning to be more stable and mature. We are learning how to be patient and calm. These crystals are about honesty and forgiveness. They are helping us to dissolve unhealthy patterns and bringing honesty and stability into the relationships in our lives. Make sure to express yourself and share what’s on your mind and heart, but make sure you do it with respect and compassion. Let’s see what the cards have to add.
Spirit wants to remind us that we are loved. Even when we feel alone, when we feel stressed, when we feel like things aren’t going our way… we are always loved by God, the Angels, our Spirit guides, and all our loved ones and Ancestors that have gone before us. They are always guiding us and showing us signs. We may have our back turned right now, but what we can’t see is the beautiful red flower about to be gifted to us. Sometimes, we feel so held down by life… by responsibilities and obligations. This card, You Are Loved, is telling you that even when you feel like you aren’t loved by those in your life, please know that you truly are. Maybe they just don’t know how to show it the way you need them to. This hard time we are experiencing is only temporary, and we are working our way to the freedom we desire. Where do we start? With acceptance. Accepting our lives for what they are now. Seeing the good instead of dwelling on what’s not great. This card reminds us that things aren’t always going to be perfect, and we have to find acceptance in the here and now. Some things just have to be tolerated, so make the best of it. Know you are supported. Ask the Angels for strength and comfort. Know that you are not alone. Check in with your friends and family, as they are dealing with things in their lives too. We are all just getting by the best way we can. This card, You Are Not Alone, is about understanding how much Spiritual support you have, but also looking around you and realizing how much support you actually have in life now. We aren’t alone, even though it feels like it a lot of the time. We are all a part of a bigger picture, and every single one of us matters and can make an impact. One way you can make an impact and express yourself is to create… music, writing, art, working out, building, inventing… whatever your escape is, whatever you feel guided to create is important. Make sure you are expressing yourself in all ways, not only with your words. Creating can help you process your emotions, without having to speak a word. For me, my readings are my creations. When I do a reading for myself or someone else, I am amazed by our true capabilities as humans. Knowing Spirit is truly guiding us. There is nothing that brings me more comfort than knowing there is existence beyond this reality, and that love and beauty guides us everywhere we go. This week, take some time to think about it. What you want out of life, where you are going, and who you want to go with. Slow down, and see the whole picture. There is lots of change going on right now, but this week is not the time to make a radical change. There are unseen factors that we don’t always know. Sometimes we can’t see the reason for things until many years later. We may try to force our will on others, because we believe that our way is the “right” way… but this card, Think About It, asks you to have compassion and forgiveness for others. It asks you to take a step back and find a better way, instead of trying to control others. Think about what you want to say before speaking it. Think about the best ways you can move forward for yourself. Always remember, you are loved and you’re not alone. Accept who you are and where you are. Express your heart and create. Take things slowly, with peace and calm in your heart. There is no rush in this game of life, and everything is always in perfect Divine order.
