The crystals I am working with for the week are Shungite, Specularite and Apache Tears. 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.
Shungite – It is an extraordinarily positive stone, and using it may bring you a variety of blessings. This is an amazing stone, and one that is beneficial to a healthy life. It is one of the only known natural material known to contain fullerenes, which are powerful anti-oxidants. The energy embodied within this ancient stone is said to absorb and eliminate anything that is a health hazard to human life, and it has active metaphysical properties with strong healing powers.
Specularite – Grounding, yet has a high vibration. It helps us identify our talents and put them to best use. Dissolves negativity. Balances the meridians and Yin/Yang energy. Assists mental functioning, memory and development. Calms the mind and brings inner peace. Boosts confidence and self worth.
Apache Tears – The Legend of the Apache Tear is this: One day a group of Apache was ambushed by an enemy calvary. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leaped from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already. Apache Tears are said to relieve grief and sadness. They assist in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions and balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones. Apache Tears are a gently grounding stone.
I haven’t done a weekly reading in months. Having everybody home all day… it’s just been a lot. We have been going through such crazy times, experiencing so many extremes. Honestly, after not doing weekly readings, and with everything, I was not sure what this reading would be like! What I am getting from these crystals, is a sense of more stability. There is a lot around grounding here. We need to keep our feet strongly planted in reality. Not only do we need to stay grounded, but we also need to reach higher. When we have some stability, we can grow higher and higher. The crystals are asking us to live our best lives, in the healthiest ways possible. For me, I’ve been replacing my cleaning, beauty and healthcare products with cleaner and greener alternatives. Our bodies are sensitive and absorbing everything around us, and I want to do the least harm I can. We are really learning that in order to heal; to be truly well; we need to eliminate sources of toxicity in our life. This means toxicity of all forms. I find it interesting that I chose the Apache Tear crystal, as I have a few black ones that look similar. The Apache Tear is representing the emotional pain we are all experiencing as a human race. Corona virus, racial issues, prejudice, injustice, police brutality, suicide, depression, anxiety, mental health issues, abuse, genocide, inequality…. The list goes on and on, and none of us are unaffected. The Apache Tears beg us to come together, instead of creating a further divide. Enough tears have been shed. We cannot get to a new future if we continue to drag the past behind us. We have to let it go and start anew. People being held accountable for their choices and actions, proper justice, policing and politics that actually help people… that is the way forward. People in the past got away with so much because there was no accountability, but now, that is all changing, and it’s actually a huge blessing. This is how we create change, by understanding what isn’t working and how we can make it better. Governments need to ensure equality, fairness, and a quality of life that allows people to enjoy their time, instead of wanting to end their life due to the stress and pressures of society. We need a society where we can rely on each other, and I truly believe we are starting to get there. We all have to forgive each other, and we also have to be willing to accept the forgiveness. This means fully accepting it, and letting go. Dwelling on all the wrongs takes the focus off what we need to be doing right. We have to learn to forgive because we are imperfect human beings, and we will always fail at some point. You might as well accept that right now. We all will make mistakes. You will get it wrong sometimes. As long as you are trying… as long as you are living with love in your heart… that’s all that matters. Even though things have been hard, there is still this excitement for the future in the background. There are still possibilities and potential that awaits us. Recognize all that you have to offer, and put yourself out there to help how you can. Together, we can all make a difference. The more you put yourself out there, and the more you accomplish, the more happy, confident and peaceful you will feel. Let’s see what the cards have to say!
Wow. These cards never cease to amaze me. Karmic Relationships is about all the conflict we are experiencing now. It confirms it is all a part of our soul growth. It is believed that the constellation Orion was once a place of great polarity and eventual unity. Polarity causes conflict and highlights separation. However, because of this, conflict can also result in unity and growth. Too many misunderstandings are caused when we don’t open our heart and mind and see things from a different point of view. We don’t need to always be right-fighting and defending our beliefs. It’s ok to understand that people sometimes do not get it, and send them love anyway. I truly believe that the people posting All Lives Matter are wonderful people. I see their point of view and understand their perspective. What these cards are asking is for us to soften our hearts, and accept that we don’t always understand the perspective of others. Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter, yes this is true, but people that have been marginalized need your support right now, and that’s what makes All Lives Matter an insensitive term. It marginalizes the rights of people who have already been marginalized. It’s ok if you don’t fully understand, all that matters is that you try to have an open heart. That you are willing to consider other opinions and perspectives. We all want to be seen and heard, understood and cherished. We can’t be reactive and take things personally. We need to find common ground we can grow from. We need to challenge ourselves to rise up through this conflict. Your Life is a Canvas reminds us that no matter what is going on, we have the power to create our own reality. We are responsible for the life we live and how we live it. It highlights the word “accountability”. You are accountable for everything you accept as truth in your life. You are accountable for your actions. You are accountable for your energy. Take responsibility for what you are creating. If you think positively in this moment, the next moment is bound to be even better. What kind of life do you want to create? It’s never too late to try again. You can start by feeling grateful for everything you have now. Inner Earth tells us that we can let go of worries, because we will survive this. There will be new solutions and new beginnings created because of this. Some of these solutions, are beyond what you can perceive right now. Surprising outcomes and resolutions could present themselves. This is about having faith in the Universe, knowing it’s always working in your favour. Shake up your life and shift your thinking. Try things you don’t normally do. Put yourself out there! You will notice in doing so, that helpful people and signs from the Universe will show up in all kinds of ways. Make sure you shift your focus so you can see the blessings, and be open and willing to receive them. Remember, you create your reality. If you walk around angry at the world, you are going to miss many opportunities. Open your heart and shift your outlook!
