Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of April 16, 2017 

The crystals I am working with for the week are Cats Eye, Snow Quartz, Labradorite and Blue Goldstone. 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. 


Cats Eye – Stimulates intuition and enhances awareness. A grounding stone with protective energy. Dispels unwanted energy from the aura. Amplifies good luck and fortune. Transforms negative thoughts into positive energy. Brings happiness and serenity, along with optimism, generosity and confidence. Enhances creativity and kindness. Treats eye disorders and improves vision. It relieves headaches, facial and sciatic pain. 


Snow Quartz – Brings good fortune. A calming and soothing stone. Helpful for meditation, and looking within. It can be considered a very yin, feminine type of quartz. Often used for purification on spiritual and other levels. Said to be beneficial for the immune system. 


Labradorite – A stone of transformation and magic. It is said to clear, balance and protect the aura, and bring protection. Provides clarity and insight into your destiny, as well as attracts success. Used for dreamwork. Reduces stress and anxiety. Enhances self-confidence. Increases intuition, psychic development, esoteric wisdom, help with subconscious issues, and provides mental illumination. Said to help with eyes, sight, diagnosis, brain, digestion, metabolism.


Blue Goldstone – The sparkles of Blue Goldstone are reminiscent of stars in the night sky. Use Blue Goldstone to make a wish. Keep a piece with your resume or at your work desk to increase job opportunities or better advancements in your career. It is a helpful aide for children who are afraid of the dark. A good deflector of unwanted energies, and for protection. Eases headaches/migraines, helps with eye ailments such as glaucoma or tunnel vision, and alleviates allergies derived from pet dander or dust.

What are we not seeing? Do you know why you can’t see it? Because what your looking for, you can’t see in front of you. What your looking for is within you. Things have been a little hectic lately, and we have been carrying some negative energy around. Maybe rehashing some past hurts, stress patterns, or maybe just feeling low energy. I have a feeling many people have been experiencing headaches, back pains, anxiety, depression and possibly eye or vision issues. Time has been going so quickly, and I feel like this is a week where things can finally slow down, where we can find some calm and peace, and prepare for the season to come. We will always go through patterns of learning and lessons in our life, and things aren’t always going to be smooth. It’s just the way life is. There is always light and dark, black and white, yin and yang. There is always a balance. This week you are going to swing in a more positive direction, finding balance in life by loving yourself and being true to who you are. We are still being protected and working on removing negativity from our lives. Try to live your life as purely as possible, what you eat, what products you consume, what words you listen to and speak. You are transforming in beautiful and magical ways. This week has a calm, feminine energy, and will be perfect for taking time to meditate. You will be given clarity and insight into your destiny, possibly through meditation and/or dreams. Keep a journal beside your bed and jot your dreams down first thing. Creativity is afoot and Divinely inspired ideas will be coming to you, to be expressed through you. You will know these by the way they make you feel, in your heart. You have wonderful and abundant opportunities that will bring good fortune. Make a wish upon the stars, and have faith that your dreams are coming true. Let’s see what cards we have for the week. 


Spider tells us that we need to trust the creative endeavours we are being guided to pursue. Feel like painting? Go buy some paint and canvasses. Don’t wait anymore. Write… write, write, write. Write whatever is in your heart to be shared. Your life experiences inspire and help others. Now is the time for healing. The Spider also represents feminine energy, so there is going to be a lot of sensitive emotions and loving energy this week. The Seagull on the card is just like my vision from two weeks ago. It is time to fly free. It is time to find where YOU want to go, and free yourself from any restrictions you currently feel. Let go of the negativity that keeps you trapped. You will find healing through expressing yourself creatively. Automatically writing what comes to you, without judgment or control, will allow you to bring some issues to the forefront to be healed. By inspiring and enlightening others, you heal yourself. This week is about us taking the time to find our direction, to really consider where we want to go and do. The Cheetah tells us to get clear. Above I just mentioned how I felt like there was no time, but the Cheetah reminds us these are just excuses that hold us back. Get clear on what you desire and want to work towards. Take some time to meditate or dream…  to write… and decide exactly what you want to pursue and get going. Focus on your intentions because things will move quickly. Fortune is going to follow! Don’t be afraid any longer. Be creative and alluring like the Spider. Be free like the Seagull. Be powerful and focused like the Cheetah. Find your light and step into it with confidence. The stars are guiding your path, and the universe is on your side.


Spider – The pulse of creativity is especially strong right now, triggering a not unfamiliar and compelling desire to express yourself through creative writing. Whether or not the tales you weave are true, whether they’re based on actual experience or the imaginings of your fertile mind, each day sit yourself down and pour out the words that come to you. Don’t ponder each sentence or paragraph, just write whatever wants to be written through you. To inspire and enlighten others, you don’t need a profoundly complex tale. Start by describing a personal experience, one where you gained some insight that may also be useful for others. However, don’t focus on how people will respond to your story. Instead, just enjoy the process of writing without judging your work or yourself. Write to express, not too impress. In attempting to write, you may find yourself easily distracted, either with others’ need for your time and attention or with those negative thoughts and beliefs that are the product of judgements and shame that you were subjected to during childhood. A powerful way to release these habitual and self limiting thoughts and feelings is to write about them in story form. As you do so, don’t hold back anything. Through such a catharsis, you heal those words that had originally wounded you. Associations: Creativity. Wisdom. Weaving. Balance. Storytelling. Writing. Connectedness. Inspiration. Femininity. Nurturing. Communication. Imagination. Individuality.


Seagull – The emotional sea that’s hovering just below your consciousness is a well of feelings that needs to be acknowledged and expressed. Expressing emotions doesn’t mean indulging in them compulsively or creating drama around them. If there are tears, let them simply be tears and allow them to flow. Cry or laugh as much as you need to. Explore these feelings by sharing them with someone you trust, or write about them in a journal, paying particular attention to the sensations in your body. These sensations are clues to the layers of emotion that are just below the surface of your awareness. By either talking or writing them down, you bring them into your awareness, find relief, and create an opportunity to release them. Don’t let this be a theatrical exercise, one where you act or try to force yourself to feel something you’re not. Make sure that you include a good dose of humour from time to time, particularly if you’re dealing with darker and scarier emotions. It’s not necessary to cleanse the emotional and psychic scars that remain from earlier experiences too frequently, but now is the time to do so. Should you find yourself starting to get lost in the whirlpool of traumatic memory, change the scenery by physically moving or intentionally distracting yourself in someway. It isn’t necessary to cure yourself of all the feelings associated with these memories all in one setting; instead, simply relieve some of the pressure that lurks below the surface. Associations: Observant. Swift. Opportunistic. Carefree. Versatile. Resource full. Intelligence. Scavenging. Communication. Sociable. Protective. Messenger. Emotional. Respect. Fairness.


Cheetah – Stop deluding yourself by thinking that there isn’t enough time, there are too many other things to do, or you’re not up to the mission that’s calling you to action. These and many other beliefs are delay tactics that keep you from accomplishing what you’re here to do. It’s much too easy to play it safe by staying caught up in the mundane dramas of life rather than honouring Spirits purpose for you by making a run for it. The first step is to write out your intentions as clearly as possible. Keep it nearby and create an appropriate affirmation that you can repeat several times over the course of the day – one that states your intention as if it has already occurred. Then write out a sequence of action steps that will help you move toward your ultimate goal. Don’t be shy or hesitant to think big – bigger than you’ve previously allowed yourself. Once you set the wheels in motion by doing the steps, it’s time to move – not in some frenetic, hurried way, but steady and purposeful, designing much of your activity to support what you need to do. In all this movement, once you’ve successfully achieved a significant piece, take a breather and look back on how far you’ve come. Give yourself a pat on the back with each step that’s accomplished as a way of acknowledging your progress. Go for it! Associations: Speed. Focus. Insight. Passion. Swiftness. Elusiveness. Flexibility. Efficiency. Self-esteem. Powerful. Graceful. Purposeful. Energetic. Sensuous. Accomplishment. Directness.

Daily Angel Card Reading – November 22, 2016

The crystals I am working with today are Blue Flame Aura Quartz, Tangerine Sun Aura Quartz and Star Ruby. 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 Flame Aura Quartz (also known as Titanium Aura) – Has the ability to heal the human energy field. It enhances ones physical vitality and brings more energy into the auric field. It is stimulating to the auric field and meridians, acting as a prism for soul-level energy, infusing the aura with a rainbow spectrum of light. Titanium (Flame) Aura allows for one to go deep into meditation to receive spiritual attunement. Overall this crystal is one that brings insight, compassion, energy, excitement and joy into life’s experiences. It is capable of carrying higher frequency range, excellent for trance channels, mediums, psychics and maintains grounding while in a higher state of consciousness.


Tangerine Sun Aura Quartz – This crystal has a dynamic energy, connected to higher forces and deeply supportive of spiritual exploration. It is great for visualization and gaining profound insight. A six-sided form is ideal for opening a blocked or un-awakened Third Eye. Use to disperse dark moods and uplift the spirit. It makes one more responsive and imparts the ability to face life’s challenges with equanimity and cheerfulness. Tangerine Aura unites the Base, Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras to provide a cleansing, energetic flow throughout the body and to stimulate one’s creativity. 


Star Ruby – Star Ruby carries the same properties as a normal Ruby but it is thought to have stronger healing and magical energies. It is said to assist in recognizing the true abundance available within ones life. It is also said to help recognize and release suppressed anger. Ruby healing properties – Ruby has always been a talisman of passion, protection and prosperity. It actively stimulates the Base Chakra, increasing vitality and chi, the life-force energy, throughout the physical body and into the spirit. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings a sense of power to the wearer, a self-confidence and determination that overcomes timidity and propels one toward prosperity and achievement. Stone of love and passion. 

The crystals are making me feel like there is a very exciting, creative and passionate energy going on today. I feel very connected to higher beings when working with these crystals, and they have a message that is very high vibration. Love, passion and creation. Let me see what the card is that goes along with this message. 


The card I pulled for today is the Queen of Summer. Summer is a rich and fulfilling season. We often spend time near or in the water, also symbolic of emotion. It is a time of wonderful experiences. Summer is a suit of emotional wellbeing, family bonds and joy in life. In the depths of our emotions, we experience our intuition and psychic gifts more fully. And so this suit brings us spiritual growth that leads to an understanding of what really matters in our lives. We are learning what really matters in our lives. We are learning what is most important is self-love, and growing as a human beings and spiritual beings. We have learned that we have to balance ourselves to be emotionally well and whole. We have learned to love and appreciate our families and friends that surround us. We are doing the work and we are growing. The crystals and the card is telling me we need to keep taking the time we need, to spend time honing our creative spirits, to reenergize our souls, and to find the emotional balance we need so that we can raise our level of consciousness. If your not doing enough of that, do something today that is just for you, that makes you feel happy, relaxed, creative and allows you to express yourself. Spend time in water. Maybe have a bath with some earphones in, and listen to some music or meditations. Spend some time with your significant other, today is a great day for love. Listen to your heart. Make sure to take the time you need, so you can create the beauty you need in your life, and allow yourself to grow spiritually. You have things to teach others as well. Fill up your cup so you can fill up the cups of others too. 

Queen of Summer – The queen of summer is beautiful and serene. You enter her presence and a sense of calm envelops you. She radiates love and peace. She also knows what you’re thinking! Extremely intuitive, she understands your heart better than you do. This queen has a deep love for friends and family and will be there for you. In fact, she’s pretty much there for everyone. Tenderhearted and charitable, she can give too much. For this reason you may experience the queen of summer as and exhausted and conscious person. She has given a great deal and hasn’t always been given to in equal measure. She has experienced loss. And in that loss, she may have become wiser and more discerning about whom she lets in. The queen stands in a field, surrounded by other fairies. The sunflowers indicate she can create happiness, which is why so many are vying for her attention. Additional meanings of this card: A close and trusted friend. Taking on an important cause. Protecting those who need assistance. Being sure to give and receive. A spiritual teacher.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Apr 10, 2016

  

I chose a wide variety of crystals to work with today. No matter how these relate to your life situation, they were chosen to provide some type of healing energy for you today, and throughout this week. The Hematite for grounding us to Earth. The Howlite to open the mind, and to reduce anxiety, tension and stress. The Moonstone is stress relieving, and it brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition and psychic abilities. The Banded Agate for healing of our mind, body and spirit. The Selenite for cleansing and clearing. The Crystal Geode for connecting to Earth, and symbolizes the beauty held within a hardened exterior. Pyrite for attracting luck, abundance and prosperity. Snow Quartz for spiritual purification, and connecting to the Angelic realm. Lastly, the Snowflake Obsidian helps to heal old patterns, and bring about balance to mind, body and spirit. It is representative of black and white, positive and negative, yin and yang. Brings balance and purity. 
  

I don’t feel like this week is negative or positive, it’s merely a continuation of our journey. We know where we are going, deep down in our soul. We question why we do the things we do, but every choice really serves a purpose, a lesson. Of course, I am not surprised to see Divine Timing come up, as this has been something I have been talking about a LOT lately. Yes, things in our life may not be exactly as we desire, but it could be what’s right for us right now, to helps us learn what we need to learn. My friend came to visit me this morning, and every time we visit, we encounter synchronicity after synchronicity. We are definitely soul sisters of some sort, so I knew the reading I would do today would be extra inspired and synchronistic! I was discussing some things I wasn’t overly impressed with in my life, and how I felt frustrated about changing them, yet that I knew the time will come when things fall into place and work out in a better way, when the time is right! You Already Know, as well as Divine Timing confirm this for me! That I know why I am on the path I am on, and I am working to get where I need to be, and everything will happen at the right time. When it’s meant to. When everyone is ready. In it’s own Divine time and design. So whatever your struggling with in your life, ask your soul during some quiet time, what it is your struggling with, what you feel the lesson is, and where you think it will lead you. Pretend you are in the future looking back. Have appreciation for what you do right now in this very moment. Shielding is what is going to help us get from here to there. Practice shielding and clearing negativity from yourself, and becoming aware of how you to treat yourself and others. Envision yourself surrounded in white light for protection, or green light for healing, whenever you need it. When times inevitably get rocky, shield yourself, and hold on to your own inner happiness and passion, no matter what is perceived to be going on around you. Appreciate the Divine timing of each moment!
 
You Already Know – This card, ironically, comes to you when the answer is something you already know but are denying or require confirmation of. In this circumstance, the Angels are saying that you have the answer, and you also know exactly what to do to move forward. This card asks you to trust in yourself and the Divine order of the universe and do what’s best for you. Only good can come from listening to your guidance, and only good can come from trusting your own intuition. 

Shielding – Although you may be strong at heart, your energy is among the most sensitive on the planet, which is why you feel so intensely in situations where others seem calm. For that reason, this card asks you to energetically shield yourself from negativity. Know that Angels are always around you to help. Simply ask Heaven to surround you with Angelic light, and know that you are protected. Anytime your in a harsh situation, immediately ask the Angels to shield you. 

Divine Timing – This card means that the resolution of the situation you’re inquiring about is delayed by more than mere circumstance. Divine timing means that nothing can happen before the dynamics of your life are completely ready for it. Many factors are involved in Divine timing, including other people’s free will choices. If your wish is fulfilled at the wrong time, the conditions won’t be right and the manifestation won’t last or be permanent. Trust in the Divine order of things, and know that you’re on the right path toward the fulfillment of your wishes and your mission. Keep your faith strong, and be open to intuitive guidance that calls you to action. One step at a time, all of your prayers are heard and answered, exactly when they are supposed to be.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Mar 6, 2016

  

I am going to start my readings by explaining more about the stones & crystals I choose to work with. I get feelings as soon as I’m picking out the stones. Starting left to right, I chose the Snow Quartz, to connect us to our light. It is a gentle, calming and soothing stone. It brings good fortune. Snow Quartz is helpful for meditation, and looking within. Snow Quartz is often used for purification on spiritual and other levels. The grey Banded Agate helps us express ourselves. It brings in great strength and grounding energy. It helps with the acceptance of self and builds confidence. It raises our level of consciousness and helps in our spiritual growth. It heals old traumas, and provides a sense of balance. Carnelian is said to attract prosperity, new resources and good luck. In the workplace, it is a crystal of ambition, drive and determination, and wards off undue pressures of co-workers or impersonal corporations with unrealistic expectations. Carnelian lends the courage needed to help overcome difficulties. Orange and red Carnelian are important crystals to use for love. Carnelian may help in rekindling passions that might have faded in an otherwise loving relationship. The green Aventurine elephant helps us to open our heart to others and trust in life. It fosters the ability to be light hearted. It cleanses the heart of fear, and soothes emotional heart pain. It calms anger and irritation. Promotes feelings of well-being and balance. It is also a stone of prosperity. The elephant spirit brings power, pride and strength. Elephants are patient, even tempered and live very long. Your spirit elephant can help you to remove obstacles out of your way and lead your life with stability, honor and happiness. The selenite pyramid is for cleansing and clearing. Selenite removes energy blocks, particularly from the physical and etheric bodies. It is a stone of truth and honesty. Selenite is a stone of powerful intuition and psychic awareness. The pyramid is a tool to amplify and focus energy. It draws out negative energy and blockages. The pyramid enhances the cleansing properties of Selenite. The Moonstone is a stone of emotional harmony, well-being and good fortune to love relationships. It shows it how it is. Helps one relax and enjoy life. Helps to fully love and appreciate others. It can help calm responses. It is very beneficial to men in opening the emotional self. So now that you know why I have chose those crystals, I will draw my cards and we will see how they correlate. 

Although I feel many people will take something from the Healer card below, and I do believe it signifies that many of you are on your journey to living your purpose as healers, I feel like this card references more about the healing and self-care we are going to require this week. This week has the potentiality to be a very good week, I have very positive feelings about it, but I also feel like we need to do our part to keep it “good”. We need to take time out to heal ourselves when we are feeling overwhelmed, so we can move forward positively. The Carnelian represented some work stress, but the crystals also represented a lot of balance and strength. So I do believe this will be a good week as long as we can overcome the perceived stresses and pressures around us, and do what you need to take care of yourself. You’ll know in the morning, is also telling us not to stress. Relax. We are told a couple of times in the cards below to let go of worry and relax. Things will work themselves out no matter what. Everything doesn’t have to be decided or put into action this very minute. Relax and meditate on any changes your are thinking of making. After you take the time to take care of yourself, and meditate on what is right for you, you will feel the answer in your soul… “Yes!!” You will find the clarity if you take the time to really process everything going on with you, and you’ll find things are much more positive than you are perceiving! Definitely yes is a great sign that things are going to move forward in a positive way! Take the action when you feel ready and guided, and for now, relax! And heal yourself. Baths and showers are great ways to cleanse your emotional body. 

Healer – This card means that you’re a healer who can help people and animals feel better. You already know how to heal in many ways and with time, you’ll learn new ways, through books, classes, and personal experiences. By drawing this card, your asked to trust in your power to heal. It isn’t you alone doing the healing work: being a healer means that you are open to Divine love coming through you – and also through people, animals or situations that can benefit from this love. Ask you Angels to help you with your healing work. You can use your healing ability on yourself too. The more you have faith in love, the more powerful are your healing abilities. Ask your Angels to increase your faith, and they will be happy to do so. 

You’ll Know in the Morning – One reason you feel so unsure right now is that your trying too hard to know the answer. The best thing to do is let go and relax. The answer is right there for you, and as soon as you stop trying so hard, you’ll know what to do. Sleep on it, and when you awaken you’ll have a better idea of the best plan of action. During your dream time, the Angels and unicorns will show you how to come up with a happy solution. They’ll show you that the power of love and light heal everything. They’ll also help you find strength to take action. So for now, don’t worry. Trust that your answer will be there for you when you wake. It may not be a complete answer, but it will guide you in the right direction. Sleep well!

Definitely Yes – What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your 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 you do so. For instance, if you get strong feelings to call or go visit someone, then do it. Your Angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive effects on you and others. This card asks you to set aside doubts and 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.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Jan 3, 2016

  

Sorry I missed last week’s reading.. I forgot my cards at my parents house over the holidays! I feel like it was a sign, to take a break and enjoy the season and New Year’s with my family. 

This week’s card reading to start off the year is just beautiful. Love and compassion for ourselves and others, blessings after the storm, and spiritual unfoldment. For anyone who had a bit of a rough year last year, it appears the storm is over, and if we give ourselves and others the love we all deserve, then there are wonderful blessings that will show up. Most importantly, in the form of our spiritual growth. We are all beautiful, and once we can embrace our love and compassion, most importantly for ourselves, that beauty will unfold in our lives. It is inevitable if you trust in our Creator and give the love we were meant to. Love yourself and others is the message for this week, and really is a message to kick off our New Year! 

Love (Compassion) – In this beautiful Image, we see hands reaching toward each other through a heart. The Green field surrounding them is the color of the fourth, or heart, chakra. It’s when we feel love in our heart center that we not only naturally emit the healing energy of compassion, but we also attract love and compassion. Studies by the Heart Math Institute reveal that the electrical signals from the heart are up to 60 times stronger than the brain’s, and the magnetic field is as much as 5000 times more powerful. It’s a given that are thinking patterns affect our feelings and, in turn, our reality. What we put out, whether it’s love, fear, empathy, sadness, and so forth, contains an incredible amount of power to shape and influence our reality. When the focus of our attention and intention is love and compassion, we recognize no separation between self and other.

All wounds stem from the illusion of separation from Source and all of creation. The route to healing this wound is through cultivating love and compassion for every being on this planet, including yourself. Not a bland standard of unquestioned acceptance, but a heartfelt sense of profound relatedness to whatever you perceive as apart from yourself. True compassion requires not only the feeling of warmth that emanates when you are in touch with your heart center, but in act of kindness, even if this simply means being a fully attentive listener. Respect the fact that your heart is a giver (putting out electrical energy) and a receiver (drawing in magnetic energy). These energies are best sensed by attending to the steady flow of your breathing, while also noticing your heart area. Righteousness, fear, anger, and judgment are some common ways to block your natural desire to love. Forgiveness is not only letting go of judgment, but also seeing through the illusion, that you and all-that-is are separate. Look about you and inside of you, and do your best to love whatever you see.

Rainbow (Blessings) – A rainbow is created by the collaboration of sunlight and water in the atmosphere. The water droplets become tiny prisms that collectively diffuse and disperse light into a ribbon of colors that is the essence of every hue we’re capable of perceiving on this planet. Rainbows symbolize many things, including good luck, a bridge to heaven, and abundance. It’s difficult for any of us to ignore the majesty of a rainbow and the gentle power inherent in it’s display. It’s such a simple blending of the elements coming together in perfect visual harmony to create one of the most beautiful sights in all of Creation. Although there are diverse meanings attributed to the sight of a rainbow, a common thread is that it offers blessings. The artist of this image created this rainbow to commemorate a friend who had just died. She worked on it whenever she felt her love and appreciation for her friend, the blessings he brought to the world and into her life, often after a spell of tearful grief.

The storm has passed, and it is time to enjoy the refreshing beauty of the cycle, even though it has been difficult to appreciate any sense of purposefulness in what you have endured lately. You can now, as they say, count your blessings. Do not just look at the “brighter side” adhering to some academic mantra that has no heart or depth, but do so slowly and with genuine gratitude that is expressed up close and personal. This ever-evolving process of life itself is a blessing, and opportunity to exist as a human being on earth. The planet is a beautiful garden, even if it does not always appear to be so. Sometimes it is only when you look back at a memory of an experience that you can truly see the blessings that have come from them. Bless your difficult or painful experiences, and let them go.

Lotus Flower (Unfoldment) – The lotus flower sits upon one of its leaves, having risen to the surface as the sun – held in the hand of God – invites it upward toward the light. This unique plant is rooted in the mud and muck at the bottom of the water, it’s stem reaching up to the surface, where it’s leaves rest quietly. At night the flower sinks below the surface, only to rise with daylight. What we learn from this amazing plant is how our own spiritual path unfolds and opens to the light, then at times gently folds in on itself for a proper rest when the daylight fades. This period is just as necessary for growth, for it allows the plant to integrate what it has gained in nourishment that 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, wether 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 its karmic destiny, but even in that process there are periods of darkness and times to rest. It is a natural cycle, one that cannot be truly coerced or halted. It has an intimate rhythm of its own, one that is unique to you. You do not need to strive for spiritual growth, or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself. Just be your beautiful self, and love yourself and the world around you as much as you can. 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.

My Crystals – Smoky Quartz Point

  

Smoky Quartz Point – Is a beautiful meditation tool that grounds and centers you as it raises your vibration, helps to elimate your fears, and enhances awareness of your dreams. Promotes walking softly on Mother Earth, encourages Earth awareness and responsibility, protects your grounding cord & Earth chakra. Teaches you how to leave behind anything that no longer serves you. Relieves pain, including headaches, benefits the reproductive system and the heart. 

A single crystal point is often used in healing. Pointed away, it draws energy off the body. Pointed inward, it channels energy inward.
