Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 26, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Bloodstone, Aquamarine and Tree Jasper. 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 crystals to you. 


Bloodstone – Used to centre and ground. Helps to stay calm. Increases adaptability and organization. Heals stress and anxiety. A stone of courage. Releases blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. Enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including bringing abundance, success and prosperity.


Aquamarine – A stone of courage and fortitude that can bring great power. Assists with quick intellectual response. It brings inner peace, hope and self-love. Shields the aura, and bring Angels for their guidance and protection. An excellent crystal for meditation. Dispels anger and fear. Assists with calming communication issues. A wonderful good luck stone. 


Tree Jasper – Known as the “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. It is used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying. It is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. It balances and aligns the physical, mental and emotional bodies. A stone of strength, courage and determination. Stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. Helps with focus, organization abilities, and motivation. 

The first thing I noticed about the crystals is that they represent Earth, Water and Blood. Very elemental energy, very symbiotic. Times may be stressful, but what’s called for now is courage and calm. It can be easy to be wrapped up in all that is going wrong, but the crystals not only are here to help us with solutions, they are also reminding us of the positive energy that comes on the other end. The abundance, the success, the luck, the power, the peace, the tranquility, the prosperity… it’s all there and it’s coming. It’s all symbiotic. Life is symbiotic. There has to be bad with the good, that’s just how it is. Get creative with solutions. Get organized. Being organized can relieve stress and anxiety. Find ways to be calm. Be adaptable. Most of all, have courage and keep moving forward in the most balanced way you possibly can. The crystals are sending you healing. You can and you will get through this period of stress, and before you know it, things are going to be be ridiculously amazing. Let’s see which cards get drawn for this week. 


The cards are just perfect. It looks like we are going through some changes in our life, maybe work related. You may be stressed out, overwhelmed or feeling like you are unsure of yourself. Just keep working and practicing. Practice makes perfect and that’s how you master a skill. You are on this path that leads to an abundant future, so don’t let the fear and stress overcome you now. Do not give up. Have courage and push through, keep practicing. Definitely Yes is a sign of everything positive that is coming in the future. It’s that confirmation that Yes, this is worth working towards and it will pay off! Believe in yourself. You are more than worthy, you are as talented as anyone else on this planet, and you can do this. Think as positively as possible! It can only help. Stressing out causes serious physical effects, and drains your energy. When you feel the stress coming on, allow yourself to feel it. It’s not going to magically go away. Just don’t allow it to bring you down. Be adaptable. When you say to yourself, “Oh my gosh, I’m feeling so stressed out and overwhelmed…” recognize that thought. Do something to care for it and turn it around. Take a time out and watch some funny videos, listen to a meditation, have a bath, get a reiki or energy healing treatment, dance, sing… do something to turn your mindset around. Gratitude exercises work well to remind yourself all you have to be thankful for. Think positive and act positive. You will get over it so much faster! The more you do it, the more it becomes a habit. Soon you will quickly notice whenever something isn’t positive! Good things are coming, positivity is the lesson and it is key here! We don’t have to be perfect by any means, there always has to be the symbiotic positive and negative. There are always times that are going to be hard. Just don’t stay there. Have courage and get back up again. Practice some more. Choose to see the beauty. Take good loving care of yourself. You truly are worth it, and wonderful things are to come if you can have courage. Practice is one way to make your dreams come true! 

Practice – Do you want to know why some people are really good at sports, music or art? They practice these skills a lot! This card is a sign that you need to practice a skill that’s important to you so that you can be really good at it. As you practice, some days you’ll feel stronger than others, yet you’ll notice that your skills improve the more you use them. So have patience with yourself and your teachers. It may take time to learn how to do something in the best way. Practice really is the best way to improve your skills. As you practice, you’ll learn new ways and methods. You’ll also enjoy yourself more as you get better and better at your new skills. So whether your dream is to paint, write, dance, sing or do crafts, practice is one way to make your dreams come true. 

Definitely Yes – What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided that you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your own desires more quickly by paying attention to thoughts, feelings, words, or visions that repeat themselves to you. When this inner guidance asks you to take positive action, it’s important for you to do so. For instance, if you have a strong feeling to call a certain person, then make that call. Your Angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive and healthy effects on you and others. This card asks you to set aside doubts or worries, and to feel secure that everything is positive. Your desires are going to happen, and probably in better-than-expected ways. Imagine that your dream has already come true, using your inner vision and your feelings as you do so. You just need to stay filled with faith and hope, and take action when your guided. 

Believe in Yourself – This card asks you to hold positive thoughts and feelings about yourself. If there’s something you need or want, then hold a vision of yourself doing well. Only think positive thoughts about yourself, such as “I can do it” and “I am good at this”. The more you believe in yourself, the better everything will go. If you expect success, you’ll have good results. But if you worry about failing, you won’t enjoy your experiences. You can enjoy life more if you believe in yourself. If someone else tells you that you won’t succeed, then picture a big “X” through their words to cancel them. Don’t let someone else’s words take away your belief! Instead, act in a way that makes them change their mind and see what you can really do. Belief means making a decision such as “Yes I can do this!” When you clearly decide to do it, instead of just trying, you approach the situation with confidence. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing something new. What matters is that you believe that you can do it. Each time you do something new, you learn and grow. And you’ll thank yourself for learning that you can do anything you truly believe you can do.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 19, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Sunstone, Goldstone and Aragonite. 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 crystals to you. 


Sunstone – Dispels fears and phobias. A leadership stone. Used to decrease stress and lift depression. Brings good luck and abundance, and turns negative energy into positive. It is said to be helpful in contacting animal or spirit guides. Used to increase physical and sexual energy and heal depression, phobias and stress related illness.


Goldstone – Helps attain goals. Helps to stay calm and stabilize emotions. It is an energy generator and deflects unwanted energies, making it useful for protection. Revitalizes the energy field. 


Aragonite – Increases energy, especially with prayer. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. Diminishes anger and relieves stress. It is helpful to those who need to release attachments and issues from the past. A good Earth healer, it encourages conservation of Earth’s precious resources. A grounding stone that creates a deeper connection to planet Earth.  

I wasn’t sure which Angel Card deck I was going to use today, and I thought, I need to do an Animal Spirit Guide or Nature cards today. The crystals I chose are confirming that energy. They want us to connect to our Animal and Spirit Guides, and they want us to connect to the Earth. We need to deepen our connection to our Earth Mother. We have all grown from her and live on her land. We must take care of our home. The crystals make me feel like we’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, letting fears creep into our thoughts. The crystals are here to heal issues from the past, diminish the anger, stress and depression, and dispel our fears. They are going to help turn any negativity into positive energy. Not only will they boost our confidence to help us attain our goals, it looks like we have luck and abundance on our side as well! Let’s see what the cards say for the week. 


 I decided to pull two cards from the Earth Magic deck and one from the Animal Spirit Guide deck, both by Steven D. Farmer. The Winter Solstice card represents a time where we need to go within and reflect on our lives and find who we truly are. A time to reflect on everything we have learned and how that is going to help us in the future. The crystals are going to help us heal any past issues and transmute anything negative into positive. It is a reminder that we always must go through periods of darkness and times of quiet, but that the sun will return. It always does. Good times are coming. It is a positive time where we are getting ready to unfold, to grow into ourselves more confidently and fully. Our paths are going to unfold before our eyes. There are always going to be bumps in the road, and the Boar reminds you to face those problems head on. There is nothing you can’t handle. The cards and crystals want you to have confidence!! It’s a positive and abundant time, and you will emerge victorious! 

Winter Solstice (Reflection) – The midpoint of Winter is not only the shortest day of the year, but it is also the longest night. The world is very still and the land dormant. Various “Festivals of Light” are celebrated, and have been for thousands of years, serving as a reminder that the light will indeed return. Throughout many cultures there are tales describing this time as the birth of the archetypal Sun King – including the Christian story of Jesus’s birth – representing the hope of renewal from the darkest period of the solar cycle. This image portrays a simple yet powerful representation of the winter solstice. We see a clear reflection of the snowy woods on the still, frozen waters of the lake. The blue tint drapes the scene with an even greater sense of quiet and solace, inviting us to walk very softly lest we disturb the intense yet gentle grace of this scene. The reflection of the trees on the frozen lake reminds us that this is a time for us to go inside – to both our physical shelter as well as our internal world – and there contemplate the season that has passed, the season that is, and the seasons yet to come. Review the past year and ask yourself what the most important lessons you have had to learn are, what you have accomplished, and what dreams and visions you want to manifest in the upcoming year. Whether it has been a relatively smooth ride or a challenging series of events, acknowledge your experience as being the work of Source, no matter what your judgments, fears, or joys are. Honour whatever has happened over the previous several months with gratitude and forgiveness. Then let it go. Allow yourself some solitude so you can spend some quiet, slow time in reflection. Once you feel complete, reflect on your present life, especially focusing on what you are grateful for. When you are finished, consider what is to come – all the different possibilities and potential that exist before you. Allow your imagination to roam without limitation or ambition, and see what shows up. Notice how you feel in your body with whatever scenario plays out in your mind. These are previews of that which is gestating, and can manifest and grow when cared for properly. Patience and stillness is called for here, for just as the Earth cycles have their own pace, so does this cycle. 

Lotus Flower (Unfoldment) – The lotus flowers sits upon one of its leaves, having risen to the surface as the sun – held in the hand of God -invites it upward to the light. This unique plant is rooted in the mud and muck at the bottom of a body of water, it’s stem reaching up to the surface, where the leaves rest quietly. At night the flower closes and sinks below the surface, only to rise with the daylight and once again gradually unfold it’s petals, it’s stem extending above the waterline three feet or more. What we learn from this amazing plant is how our own spiritual path unfolds and opens to the light, then at times gently fold in on itself for proper rest when the daylight fades. This period is just as necessary as the growth, for it allows the plant to integrate what it has gained in nourishment during the day. It’s also just as important that it is rooted, and it is yet another miracle of Nature that something so exquisitely beautiful is formed from the mud and silt at the water’s bottom. Your spiritual unfoldment is occurring at all times whether or not you are aware of it. It is inevitable as long as you put your trust in the hands of the Creator, the one who holds the light. Like the Lotus, your soul is always reaching for the light to fulfill it’s karmic destiny, but even in that process there are periods of darkness and times to rest. It is a natural cycle, one that cannot truly be coerced or halted. It has an innate rhythm of its own, one that is unique to the being that is you. You do not need to strive or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself – or others, for that matter. Allowing is the key here. Allow the place in you that naturally wants to follow the light to do so while recognizing that even when you have complete faith, you will face challenges and, occasionally, suffering. Your steady faith and love will guide you on your journey of returning to the light.

Boar (Pig) – Whatever difficulties you’re experiencing now, whether with a relationship, career path, or some other concern, dig in and rummage around until you discover how to solve the problem. Then take immediate action to remedy it. Every time you confront adverse situations in this way, you’ll be uprooting those elements in your life that appear to be obstacles to fulfilling your purpose. Life can sometimes be very uncooperative with your rational mind’s sense of order, and will at times even block your demands of how events or experiences should unfold. If you’re living on Earth, you’re going to get your feet muddy sometimes, but it’s no call for panic, crisis, or drama. Instead, take a couple of deep breathes and view whatever problem you encounter as simply something that needs to be taken care of. As the saying goes, there really are no problems – only creative possibilities. Once you have emerged victorious – which means that you either conquered your problem or changed your thinking about how you initially perceived the situation – you’ll experience a surge of power and confidence. Remember that your power originates from Source, expressed through you and as you. When you vanquished the illusion of the situation being a problem, you’ll not only feel a greater sense of relief and freedom, but you also open the way for your heart, mind, and soul to be more in alignment with the Will of Spirit. When you operate from that perspective, you can overcome anything! Associations: Courage; Hospitality; Earthiness; Self-reliance; Protection; Prosperity; Organization; Fierceness; Uprooting; Cleanliness; Determination; Balance; Security; Tenacity

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 5, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Blue Kyanite, Specularite, Star Ruby and Black Tourmaline. 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 crystals to you. 

Blue Kyanite – A stone of channeling, altered states, vivid dreams, dream recall, and visualizations. It brings loyalty, honesty and tranquility, and diminishes anger and confusion. Kyanite does not retain negative energy and never needs energetic cleansing. It aligns and balances all chakras. Kyanite can remove energy blockages. 


Specularite – Grounds and protects. Helps us identify our special talents and where they can be put to our best use. Dissolves negativity in all forms. It balances the meridians and yin-yang energies. It assists mental functioning, memory and development. It calms the mind and instils deep inner peace. Boosts confidence and self worth. Combats electromagnetic pollution.


Star Ruby – Is believed to be helpful for those that have suffered abuse (of all kinds) and for those those suffering from addiction or self-abusing patterns. It is a stone of strength and encouragement. As the stone of nobility, Ruby helps you to refine your character and it is said to ensure success in battle. A star ruby is considered to be a particularly potent protection against all forms of magic. Star Ruby helps in the focus of healing energies and chosen pathways. It is said to promote dreaming and tends to stimulate connection between the self and your spirit guides. Star Ruby helps to align the auric and physical bodies as one. It is an excellent stone for releasing blocks which keep you from following your spiritual path. 


Black Tourmaline – Is excellent for grounding excess energy. It is known as a purifying stone that deflects and transforms negative energy, and therefore is very protective. It can transform and remove negativity from an individual or an environment. It is often used as an aura cleanser, and can help one attain higher levels of awareness. It has also been used to deflect EMF radiation energy from tvs, computer monitors and other EMF sources.
 
The first thing I have to say is that the crystals are bringing up some thoughts I have been having lately. When I do these readings, they are as much for me as for you. I’m sure when people hear me say things like, “I found my spiritual path”, they think I’m nuts or just buying into something.. or that I perceive myself as better or more advanced. Thinking about it more, the truth is that I am not on any different “path”, and I am definitely in the same boat as every other person on this planet. We are all on our spiritual paths always, and I guarantee your having spiritual experiences daily… even if you don’t see it. We truly are all spiritual beings. That stranger you felt compelled to smile at, that person you decided to help out, even the bumblebee that comes harassing you, or feeling the sunshine warming your skin… every moment of our lives is a spiritual journey, and we are always walking our spiritual paths. Life is unfolding for me now in a way that is making my purpose more clear, and I believe the catalyst for this was loving myself and having confidence. Having faith that you are worthy, then you will be shown that you absolutely are. The crystals are helping to align our energy, our chakras, auras, meridians, yin-yang energy… there is all kinds of cleansing and alignment within these crystals. They are healing us and restoring balance. They are also protecting us from negativity, so that we can move forward with confidence and serve our true purpose. They are encouraging us to get our lives together, to kick any addictions or abusive patterns that are holding us back from being able to love ourselves. The Star Ruby is helping our path become more clear, and the Specularite is helping us identify our special talents. The Star Ruby and Blue Kyanite are removing any blockages that are preventing us from moving forward. It is time to reside in your true tranquil state. Disconnecting from technology can help clear your energy. Let’s see what message we get from the cards today to go with this. 


The cards agree! (Of course!!) Reward Yourself is exactly what we talked about surrounding self-love. Love yourself, do nice things for yourself, show the universe how much you love yourself. Make sure you balance what you give and what you allow yourself to receive. This is a key to living in that tranquil state. Go For It also goes along with another reading I just watched, about how our prayers have been heard and will be answered. I love how it talks about you staying on your present path! Just like I mentioned above, we are always on the right path, learning lessons… learning how to love. This card is a positive sign to keep doing what your doing and being the best person you can be, and life will take you far! Notice The Signs is another reminder that we are always on our spiritual path. All you have to do is have faith, and appreciate the beautiful signs and guidance you receive. Anything that feels like a sign to you, definitely is. Don’t brush them off, but say thank you to the universe! This complex world could not exist without something more at play. Thank and trust in Spirit and have no worries. You will be shown your way. ❤️


Reward Yourself – You drew this card because it’s time to reward yourself for all of your hard work. Everyone needs rewards, and you’re no exception. A treat will boost your energy, mood and motivation. Invest in yourself and make time for self-care today. Give yourself a much desired item, trip, or service and notice how your inner child blooms with joy from this loving attention. Additional meanings for this card: Take the day off from work today. Splurge on a treat for yourself. Balance giving with receiving. Make sure that you’re allowing yourself to receive. Appreciate all that you’ve done. 


Go For It – You drew this card as encouragement for the situation your asking about. The Angels reassure you of a positive outcome, provided you continue to pour love and guided action into the situation. Additional meanings for this card: Don’t hesitate, now is the right time. You’re on the right path. The idea that you have is Divinely inspired. The Angels foresee a successful outcome. 


Notice The Signs – The Angels gave you this card to help you understand the signs you’ve been receiving lately. These may include feathers, coins, butterflies, birds or other repetitive visions that make you think of the Angels, who have deliberately sent you these signs to let you know that they’re nearby – protecting, loving and guiding you. Additional meanings for this card: Your departed loved ones in Heaven are saying “Hello, I love you!”. Notice and believe in the signs you receive as validation that you’re on the right path. Have Faith. Follow the signs that are guiding you to your heart’s desire.
