As promised, I am sharing just a few Crystal friends that are looking for new Guardians to co-create with.
Nearly all of my latest Crystal offerings found new homes over the last three days of teaching (yay!), so I only have a few right now to share (see below), as the rest of the family are for the upcoming Crystal infused workshops in Florida and Oregon. If some remain, I’ll share them with you after those workshops.
For the same reason – needing both dropper and spray Crystal Elixirs for the upcoming workshops, and being that more than half have gone, I can only offer a limited amount more right now, until after the workshops.
Unfortunately, only Elixir #1 can be offered right now, but it happens to be my personal fav. This is the amazing fusion of Herkimer Diamond, Orange Jade, and Iceland Quartz, which were all activated at the sacred sites and energy centers on my sacred journeys.
I have just three of these available in dropper form, which can be taken as drops on the tongue, placed on your wrists and rubbed together, dropped in plants, taken in your water or smoothies, dropped in your bath water, etc.
You can place your order here, if it calls to you. For information on the properties of the Crystals it’s infused with, please visit: Crystal Elixirs
CRYSTAL ELIXIR #1
Dropper Bottle Option
Here are some Crystal beauties that still await new, loving and committed homes:

Lemurian Aquatine Calcite is considered to be one of the stones of the new consciousness, getting its name because of its affinity to water and Lemuria. Up until now, Lemurian Seed Crystals and Aqua Lemuria from the mountains of Sumatra, Indonesia were the stones most known to resonate with the Lemurian frequency that recalled Lemuria’s “past knowledge”. Lemurian Aquatine Calcite emanates the actual feeling and intuitional awareness of the Lemurians and recalls the lost spiritual “capacities and abilities” they had.
Legends tie it also to being one of the “key stones” of ascension used by Lemurian priestesses to access other realms.
This stone is wonderful for the Throat Chakra. It’s also wonderful to work with the Third Eye Chakra to stimulate inner vision and deepen psychic abilities. Not only will it assist intuition, but also enhance the mind to open to greater expansiveness and connections of broader knowledge. In a sense it is the bridge to one’s own innate intelligence and I believe it also works with the Higher Heart Chakra energy, Crown Chakra, and etheric Chakras.
It helps in communications with higher beings, facilitates connection with ancient cultures – Lemuria and a bridge to Atlantis, assists in contacting spirit guides and angels, supports traumatic past life healing, helps to raise vibrations from karmic energy, promotes spiritual ascension, helps you to flow with your emotions rather than get stuck, promotes enhanced dreaming and depth of feeling, as well as visionary consciousness. It’s one of those stones that is perfect to soothe the nerves, anxiety, fear, tension, and stress so that you are nourished at the etheric level into a peaceful state of being. It’s also very effective for connecting with that boundless, unity consciousness that honors, respects, and realizes the connection and eternal quality of all things.
Lemurian Aquatine Calcite assists us in tuning into the energetic frequencies of the Earth’s past, which recalls the library of information stored in our DNA to bring into greater wholeness in the now and assist the activation of all Chakras beyond the seven you’ve been accustomed to only knowing about.
And of course, the stone is a bridge to our cetacean friends – the dolphins and whales. Not only is it a communication channel to these beings, assisting our telepathic skills, but is also a way to actually feel and know them, accessing the parts of them that are within you. You find your senses magnified beyond the physical confines of the body.
The energy of this stone is like a flowing melody to me, which I believe helps us to activate and embody our own personal frequency and song.
Seraphinite, and just as its name reflects, it does indeed embody the “spirit of an angel.”
A Seraphim, by definition, is an angelic being, considered to belong to the highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy that has three pairs of wings.
The angelic Seraphinite not only carries the energy of these powerful angels, but it also resembles them with the silvery infused angel wings that appear inside. It is one of the most powerful stones for physical body healing and a great stone for healers and self healing,
Seraphinite is a beautiful, deep green – when caught in the light is Earthy and resembles the vernal forests in Spring, but can be a very dark, almost black-green at times, like the depths of the forests when you venture beyond the Sun’s reach. It is one of the Angel Crystals that gets its deep green from the Chlorite in it, which is extremely healing and sometimes also appears in clear Quartz. There are silver “fronds”, like a fern has, throughout the crystal that flash brilliantly in the light. It is these “fronds” that resemble also the angelic wings.
Their green color represents the renewal of life, physical healing, the essence of the Heart Chakra, and Earth connection, which helps people who feel alienated from their physical bodies to appreciate and love the wonder and miracle of their physical form. With this appreciation you are open to allowing more light to infuse your human body. You can place it on any part of the body where you feel more balance is needed and where there is a disconnect experienced. One way to meditate with it can be to imagine silver light wings softly feathering in and around you as you visualize and embrace your body in wholeness and unified health and well-being.
It is definitely an enchanting crystal.
The darker green, sometimes almost black coloring, adds the element of grounding. The silvery wings are almost white, which symbolize Spirit and flow of nonphysical energy. This reflects a physical entity infused with the light of Spirit, so they are much like Earth Angels manifest, or the new Luminous Humans we are becoming.
Seraphinite, found only in the Lake Baikal region of Siberia, is considered by many as the premier healing stone of this age most suited to bringing the body into line with Light energy. It is among the most powerful of stones also for bringing into alignment the “I AM” column of the spinal cord. Of course its lovely green coloring reveals it as the perfect Heart Chakra stone that both centers, energizes, harmonizes, and bridges everything all at once.
Seraphinite carries a very feminine energy, which supports greater awareness and experience of the Divine Feminine, but it also is a healing crystal known to aid cellular regeneration! It even has the ability to help you become aware of diseases linked to issues from past lives and is believed to cause old patterns of dis-ease and imbalance to fall away. This creates the opportunity and space for new patterns to form that are of the highest order of wholeness. It can aid the decoding of the DNA to help bring about the decline of former systemic diseases and as they subside, the vibrations of the new arrangements within your DNA become prominent.
Seraphinite provides clarity of vision and understanding to see and know truth about your life, as well as what needs to be changed in order to experience the harmony you desire and deserve. It also encourages daily contact with the highest order of angels when you meditate. You can use it on any area or Chakra of the body, but some examples are placing it on your Crown Chakra for aligning all of your Chakras, holding it over your Heart Chakra to receive its healing love and protection, as well as to be able to always give unconditional love to others that resides innately in your heart.
Tibetan Quartz are really amazing crystal friends that embody the powerful “OM” vibration and are perfect for grounding as you expand your awareness, spiritual growth, and Reiki. Reiki Master Teachers and practitioners alike will find a resonance with Tibetans. The darker black and smokey gray spots and inclusions are a distinguishing, unique quality of the Tibetans. They occur in single, double terminated and cluster. I have found that both the clear and darker crystals of this kind to be both equally powerful and individually gifted. The darker ones have an ability to help us empower our shadow aspects, while balancing all Chakras and meridians and taking us into some mysterious recesses of exploration. They are also excellent for dissolving energy blockages and purifying energies. Wearing or carrying this type of quartz will cleanse the aura and protect it from negative influences, as well as helping ground the wearer.
This particular one is a very dark, self-healer, mysterious one. Quartz that come from Tibet are attuned to the esoteric knowledge that has existed in Tibet for ages, which is available to you when you meditate with them. You can attune yourself to this ancient knowledge and wisdom of the Eastern cultures and will find it helpful in healing practices (especially Reiki) to draw energy to specific areas and Chakras of the body. It will also assist you with accessing the Akashic Records if you choose to.
Tibetan Quartz helps you to focus directly to the point, so healing can take place from the origin and then can be drawn out and integrated with results reflected on the surface. It helps you to understand reasons past life connections are related to present life dis-ease or karmic lessons.
Tibetan Quartz not only helps in healing practices, but in your own meditation practices or simply living a life of sacredness. It can help you to facilitate fasting and abstinence if you so choose. It radiates such a powerful vibration that if worn or worked with long enough it will radiate and attune you to your own inventive powers.
Tibetan Quartz, said to be one of the twelve Master Crystals, is also wonderful for dream recall, inducing total centering, and producing an energy conducive to channeling of higher information. It fortifies and strengthens all systems of the body and as a “feel good stone” it is known to be particularly effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, bone injuries, depression, Fibromyalgia, intestinal troubles, healing the nervous system, as well as helpful for improving mental and physical energy, stamina, and physical strength.
Tibetan Quartz opens you to vastly expanded states of consciousness, clears the aura and fills the physical and energetic bodies with Light as needed for spiritual growth, assists in practicing non-attachment, and is a very strong “awakener” of the upper Chakras, allowing enhanced communication with the higher planes, as it connects to the Higher Self.
Carrying one creates a bubble of Light around the body, allowing only positive vibrations to penetrate the auric field. As mentioned, with their ability to enhance healing, they are excellent for practitioners and Master Teachers of Reiki.
Kirlian photography has shown that, when cleansed, these crystals emanate the total spectrum of color and can hence be applied to all energy medians for stimulation and cleansing, as well as be used in the healing of all energy centers. Tibetan Quartz provides protection and purification, and are perfect crystals for cleansing and sanctifying a healing or meditation room. They expand the aura, raising the vibrations such that the physical body can attune to and assimilate the full spectrum of light.
Tibetan Quartz stimulates clairaudient abilities when placed over the third eye. It assists in practicing non-attachment and they expand the aura, raising the vibrations such that the physical body can attune to and assimilate the full spectrum of light.
Love Is In The Earth author, Melody shares:
Tibetan monks, who live near where the Quartz comes from say “this crystal is found exclusively in the location where a race ‘from the heavens’ landed many millenniums ago”. It carries the vibration of the “OM” sound. These Mountains are so high only the Tibetans themselves can mine these crystals. The Himalayas are one of earth’s spiritual centers. The stone beings coming to us from this locale are highly evolved beings. They have been hidden for eons by the ancient wisdom keepers awaiting their time to arise! The Tibetan people who mine these say they were placed millions of years ago by the star people! Tibetan quartz provides an incredible feeling of grounding with expansion. These stone beings work through our Base Chakra all the way to our higher ethereal body centers clearing and aligning.

It is extremely rare to find an aquamarine of this size and of this quality and energy (not to mention at this price). She stands almost 4 3/4″ tall, 6 3/4″ long and 4 1/2″ wide. She channels the Goddess and Master Kuan Yin and is an embodiment of great compassion. Her service is to help bring you to the depths of your heart and to assist all sentient beings in a return to natural harmony on Earth.
Breath-taking, powerful, other-worldly and then some!
In her natural state she is pristine in energetic purity and beauty with delicate little prismatic rainbows scattered here and there. Layers of lustrous, short-prismatic to tabular crystal clusters are layered in a matrix community of iced aqua that create a mountain alter of watery energy. Compact and potent, her clustered layers are firmly grounded on large tabular crystals to root her energy. You will also find sparkly Marcasite – a polymorph of pyrite which means that it has the same chemistry as pyrite but a different structure and different symmetry and crystal shapes – enmeshed between the Aquamarine clusters and layers. Its silvery luster is enchanting alongside the iced aqua brilliance and adds to her energy she emanates.
I can’t say enough about her and as always, photos never do justice to these beautiful beings.
Aquamarine Properties: a stone of courage and serenity and a powerful stone for the heart chakra, the thymus (higher heart) or throat chakra and will enhance communication with the Goddess while improving overall spiritual communication. Another benefit of using this crystal, is that it aids you to let go of emotional issues from your past that you have been holding on to. Within the thymus chakra (or higher heart) this energy is very powerful. It emits flowing, soothing, compassionate energy.
This lovely and gentle gem evokes the sea in both its name and its color. The meaning of this crystal’s name derives from the Latin, meaning ‘water of the sea’. The ancients saw this as a stone of courage and felt that carrying it would help them return safe and prosperous from all sea voyages.
It is held in quite high regard in the East as the Stone of the Seer and Mystic, a gemstone that imparts purity to the wearer, as well as encouraging the gentle nature and personality in the wearer. It is a symbol of peace. Aquamarine is said to be the stone of the sea goddesses of past times, due to its association with the sea and water.
In magic, this glorious stone is worn or carried about the body to enhance the use of psychic powers. It helps reduce our conscious mind’s hold on the psychic mind and allows our ever present psychic impulses to be heard and to enter into our more conscious mind. It is good for meditation as it brings calmness, peace and inspiration with love. It also strengthens personal power and the aura.
The stone is considered an “all purpose” healing stone as it treats spiritual and psychological disturbances as well as physiological disorders and disease. In addition, it increases one’s access to courage. It promotes motivation and comforts in times of intense physical and emotional release, while supporting one through the process.
The stone aids a life of service, shields and protects, reminds us of love and caring through times of change and in one’s life and path and purpose. It aids in promoting spiritual and psychic awareness, brings about core soul repair and healing, aids soul retrieval, and heals deeply at all levels. It is used spiritually to bring purification to one’s entire being, as it allows the inner self to better pursue one’s Highest Ideals, keeping attachments to the mundane world in perspective.
In addition to its remedial values, it is an excellent stone with which to make changes in your life, holding more true to your inner, spiritual self, and helping yourself remain calm and purified of your own self-polluting behavioral patterns.
Aquamarine is a symbol of true friendship, equity, courage, judiciousness and eloquence. It helps clairvoyants, harmonizes soul and body and is an amulet of happy family life. In Europe of The Middle Ages, the newly-weds exchanged Aquamarine rings. It is one of the most magical stones that can expose even astral deceits. Aquamarine acts on its wearer’s mood, as a peaceful-seascape, calming the mind.
Marcasite Properties (the silvery areas on the Aquamarine): comes from an Arabic word, markaschatsa, meaning ‘firestone’. It expands metaphysical abilities, especially that of spirit awareness and clairvoyance, provides a psychic shield that grounds, assists house-clearing or entity removal, provides a detached perspective when looking within for insights, helps you to make necessary adjustments, brings clarity for those feeling scattered or confused, increases willpower and courage, encourages you to shine, and helps foster a sense of true abundance.

This morning when I went to the kitchen to create the day’s smoothie, my eye caught something large quickly moving about the back perimeter of the yard by Gaia’s Tortoise home that I’ve kept out there in reverence to her and the sanctuary she loved.
I then realized that it was an opossum pacing back and forth, just as Gaia did, in the same area she used to. Immediately, of course, it made me miss Gaia. But it also put to light the paw prints I see on the deck all the time, which I hose down every few weeks. I thought they were raccoon paw prints, but now I see who they really belong to.
This opossum was no little one either. She is quite large with a body that looked like that of a pig’s, but with little feet and long pink tail, and quite a large pointed-nose face.
When she turned towards me, her face showed these big black eyes and her presence was very interesting and quite a different energy. Since they are nocturnal animals, mostly sleeping during the day, it is a bit unusual to have seen her and of course that made me take note.
I did not get the chance to get any great photos of her, as she moves rather swiftly and didn’t stay still much, except when she was trying clumsily to climb up the tree. She was quite large and so it seemed she was having trouble climbing, falling down once on her first attempt.
Eventually she got up the tree and climbed up over the fence and was gone. Since this seems to be her route though, hence the paw prints on the deck we find all the time, I’m sure she’ll be back, although it’s usually at night when everyone else is asleep.
Of course that made me want to explore some more about opossum to see if something in particular stood out in her message and animal totem medicine that might be enlightening and supportive.
Opossums are extremely versatile masters and use non-confrontational problem solving and strategic planning, rather than arguing and fighting. This makes them cunning strategists for being able to get out of situations not to their liking or to their survival advantage. This says to us that we should always have back-up plans, and be open to and creative with multi-possibilities to achieve an outcome we desire.
They are good at the art of acting in order to project appearances to their advantage. So if they show up it could mean either we need to shift and become more adaptable to be productive and sustain our well-being, or perhaps there is something in our experience that is not necessarily what it it appears to be, asking us to look deeper for the hidden meaning.
Opossums teach us to use all of our senses, and not just go by what we we think we “see”. This ability is cultivated within them from birth, as they are born blind and hence need to develop a greater connection, trust, and attunement to all other senses they have.
In this way they can be spirit guides reminding us and helping us to look for and bring forth our unseen gifts and the inner wisdom within us, while also getting to the heart of the matter, as they are skilled at uncovering the truth, and revealing the lies.
Opossums have short lives because so many seek to do them harm, so they have had to adapt in ways to survive. So they have learned to play dead, which is a self-induced state where they zone out, their pulse becomes minimal and heartbeat slows, while a musky death scent releases and creates the appearance that no one lives there anymore. This is a state they can enter in and out of at will very quickly, enabling them to escape.
This teaches us flexibility, quick wit, mutability to shift and adapt, keeping our cool in any situation where staying calm, centered, and in control will be of benefit, without letting fear take over. And with this skill also comes the skill at knowing when others are putting up fronts or deceiving us. Opossums teach us to use these skills to recognize and be highly aware of what’s really going on, as well as how we can use our skills for the greatest benefit.
Diversion strategies are survival instincts, speaking to our core and Root Chakra energy. Learning to look fear in the eye and be able to adapt ourselves, knowing we have the skills to get us through anything, and that we are safe even in the face of fear, is powerful. And also knowing when we need to adapt our ways and behaviors, rather than holding tight to rigid ones, will support greater potentials.
That said, we must also be aware of when we might be deceiving ourselves, self-sabotaging, or acting in less-productive ways.
Opossums can also herald a time to keep our spidey senses about us – don’t let others divert our attention by the flashy hocus pocus tricks and masks they may be pulling.
They support us in strengthening how we project ourselves, may be saying it’s time to let go of the old ways and develop new strategies, and to learn how to “be” with realism to create magick.
The way they play dead is also like zoning out, which symbolizes for us a time period where we can remove ourselves from things that are not beneficial to us, or even threatening and potentially dangerous. Perhaps heralding a time in our lives to go within, let things incubate, pull back, withdraw, extract ourselves fully even, and for the time being, be a remote island for a while – all done very intentfully, skillfully, discerningly, and in alignment with the bigger picture of our lives.
By doing so, renewal is at hand with more energy than you ever had. You will be recharged and ready to go and get ‘er done, no matter what the cost.
Since opossums are marsupials that carry their babies in sacks in their bodies, this adds the symbolism of only keeping that which is most valued to you, close to you (letting go of all the rest) and be willing to stand strong for what that is. Opossums will fight ferociously if need be. They also like to hide and hoard, so be mindful of what you might be hiding and hoarding and let those things go that aren’t necessary.
Opossums may represent a time for adaptability, incubation, protection, unpredictability, mothering, and connecting to your own wild/feral nature in productive ways.
There are a few things in opossum’s message that stand out and spoke for me. How about you?
It’s been a Crystal Magick kind of week and I’m getting ready to teach a full day crystal workshop today after giving two Crystal talks the last consecutive evenings at Chapman University. I love seeing people inspired by their relationships to Crystals, which connects them more to the heart of themselves and cultivates a stronger relationship with the Earth and Cosmos.
It was really synchronous and beautiful to be teaching about reverence and relationship to Crystals on Earth Day and felt like a way to honor Terra and her gifts through a passion of mine I could share with others.
It was awesome to see everyone so excited and engaged, especially since this is the next conscious generation coming up. Grateful that there are groups like the Chapman Health and Healing Club that are spreading the light and bringing a variety of topics to their members, to expose them to what’s out there so they can be aware and also ignite their own passions and resonance that will be the guiding posts of their journeys.
I’ve also taken a bunch of my Crystal elixirs over the course of the last few days to align me with the Crystals’ essence for sharing about them. So to say the energy has been on high is an understatement.
I loved seeing the students at Chapman experimenting with the elixirs. They were all very in tune with their bodies and senses, and immediately shared the shifts and feelings from the elixirs and the differences from one to another that they tried.
It’s always amazing to experience these powerful Crystal beings and just as with Reiki, simply talking about them gets things vibed and heated up. Hope I don’t blow out anything after this. ;)
I’ll be taking a break from the Crystal teaching until end of May when I’ll be co-teaching a workshop in Tampa, FL, although am still taking my elixirs and always have my Crystal friends around me daily for companionship and support.
Crystals are constantly moving in and out of my life, depending on the shifts I make, which are supported by their love, wisdom, and energetic presence. It’s been lovely to see Crystals move on again, and some of the students feeling so drawn to bringing them into their lives.
I was so touched by this one particular young woman who immediately was drawn to one of the heart-shaped Crystals I brought to the talk and literally was moved to almost tears by the comfort she felt when she held her.
She said, “I’ve never felt this with any stone or Crystal. I haven’t felt peace like this since I moved to this city. I love my new best friend.”
I knew that Crystal was meant to be with her, and got the message on why I had felt called to bring it at the last minute.
I love that.
And I’ve experienced much the same in my own life with them.
Yesterday, after the talk another young woman asked me how I got into Crystals and I realized there was really no “one thing” that took place, but it was a culmination of all things in my life when I was embracing the next level of my spiritual journey that brought many things into my experience all at once – like opening a floodgate and it just all poured in, as if it had just been waiting for me to be ready.
Since, Crystals have been one of the supportive ways I’ve worked with to completely shift my life experience. And for that I’m grateful and I’d like to shout out an extra special thank you in honor of them today.
How have Crystals been a part of your life?
In honor of Earth Day I felt inspired to share some of the enhancements the garden received this weekend, including new hanging plants, new flowers, lavender, and as of this morning, the finalization of sanding and coating the outdoor furniture – all in preparation for Summer time enjoyment, which will likely be the last here for a while.
It’s no wonder the Faeries enchant the Crystal Elixirs I ask them to help out in enhancing with their magick when I create them. There’s such a peaceful serenity in the garden and sweetness that makes for a lovely Elemental home.
Today is also exciting, as you can see in the photos, I just wheeled in the new Garden Tower 2 (the latest model able to grow 50 plants in four square feet) into the garage that arrived in time for Earth Day! YAY!
I say a new one because unfortunately the first one that arrived had been damaged during shipping. I hadn’t had a chance to open the box and start getting my green thumb going until the weekend before last when I discovered this upon opening the box finally. I just hadn’t had any time with all my travels, barely being home, and catching up on things when I was home.
But the Garden Tower Project company is awesome! They immediately shipped me out a new one and it’s here! So that means this weekend is Garden Tower time!
Sound and music has been a main expression and source of support throughout my life. On the creative front, I’m involved in a personal project that will be a journey of sound from the musical seed of my soul, but have been infusing musical resonance as a form of healing and wholeness in my sessions and in sacred gatherings/events over the last couple of years.
Sound has been an important facet of me since I was a baby in this life, and carried forth from “past” lives. In this life it has always been powerfully transformative and is something I have infused into my healing work and paintings, that sings to people through my embedding it in the process. But I have used musical sound for major shifts, including a profound experience in Egypt on my first of two trips there in this life, which I’ll touch briefly upon in a bit.
It seems to be surfacing more now, however, in direct ways, and as always, I flow with where I’m guided.
I’ve expressed in article posts about mantra chanting already and how powerful that can be, but I love what my dear Faery sister Laura Bruno shared in a past post of hers about sound:
“Release energy by making a joyful noise unto the heavens. Watch what words you’re repeating through song, since music intensifies the power of words. Once you find sacred chants or affirmative songs you love, let ‘er rip. You’ll strengthen your throat and heart chakras, enabling you to align your words with your heart. You’ll also increase your intuition and spiritual awareness, joy (2nd chakra), confidence, and feel more grounded in your body through the physical act of singing instead of just mentally mumbling the words.”
So express whatever wants to come through you song-fully, as long as it is from the joy of your heart, and you will experience the power inherent in loving sound. It is life-altering, as sound is a Universal resonance that transcends.
Just remember to release judgments, to the best of your ability, while you are going through everything and to be gentle right now with all that you are processing and experiencing…and S L O W down a bit to breathe and be able to really focus on refocusing. The extra external stimulation with so much already going on in and around you can be enough to blow you out and keep you away from the core transformative things trying to get your attention – AND away from being in your heart.
Surrounding yourself with only things that mirror the new that you are focused on creating, and releasing all of the old toxicity in your life will be of great benefit.
And whichever supportive tools and experiences you feel drawn to – for me that is Reiki, my Crystal friends and animal companions, tons of Earth nature time (as Laura called it in her blog: “Get Dirty” time), doing only what feels right in my heart, retreat, and definitely a LOT of music and vibrationally moving it through my body and chakras in the form of lyrical resonance – utilize these well.
I like to think of the Universe as a giant symphony divinely orchestrated by the harmonic collective field of unique sound and energy frequencies expressed through each light instrument embodiment within all of creation.
I find energy and sound healing to be most powerful and now-aligned, as sound is vibration, which is a function of energy – what the Universe IS. Everything is frequency and because of this, sound has the ability, like Reiki, sacred symbolism, colors, mantras, toning, chanting, music…to vibrationally resonate on a deep cellular level to shift things within your karmic stored patterns, which affects your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states. It has the power to affect all levels of creation, while connecting you to Higher Consciousness.
We each have a personal home frequency, and since your body is a vibrational system, sound and energy can powerfully support you to return to that natural state of relaxed beingness. Sound healing is an ancient practice, like energy healing, that acts as a therapeutic tool, accompanied by intent, to support you back into your natural frequency balance, by freeing blockages and returning you to your higher vibrational state. When all parts of you are harmoniously vibrating, this restores well-being on all levels, as well as your ability to function as the empowered and bright light that you are.
“Music is to the nervous system what nutrients are to the body,” – Joshua Leeds
When you experience music or sound through someone channeling it or as your own personal experience of channeling, you become attuned to the energetical vibrational frequencies that are innately embedded within and this experience can be powerfully activating and ingniting in terms of healing, inspiration, empowerment, and overall wholeness of being.
The sound vibrations through voice and music put you into a temporary and suspended hypnotic state that induces a release from limitations and supports you in moving forward with liberation. They will also create a general experience of heightened well-being, sense of calm and peace, and overall harmony that helps to see you through the challenges of life in more balanced ways.
Everything in nature has a vibrational component and frequency and any form of sound in the Universe IS vibrational energy. Since our bodies are mainly composed of water, this makes them superb sound resonators and demonstrates why we react so efficiently and effectively to sound and vibration, just as Dr. Masaru Emoto brought forth through his research and book “The Hidden Messages in Water.” Sound actually travels fives times more efficiently through water than through air. It’s no wonder why cellular shifts within the body are so responsive when experiencing sound directed into it.
The whole Universe, according to ancient Indian texts and some of the latest works in quantum physics, was created through cosmic sound energy. This, followed by heat and light energy, then produces life forms, illustrating how intimately connected life energy, or prana, is to sound vibrations.
There is the possibility that the Universe began with One Sound, rather than The Big Bang…and if this in fact is the case, as mystics denote the basic sound of the Universe by Om for instance (considered the ultimate state of spiritual being that is heard at the highest peek of silence where all else disappears), then it is sound that emerges when life force energy or the very energy of life itself is experienced.
And each of us have our own signature song…or sound.
“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” -Maya Angelou
Sound or vibrational sound energy has been around and utilized since Ancient Times – its healing power secrets well known for its sacred alchemy in all areas of life and to connect to the divine as keys and codes activated through sound and able to create purely from a particular resonant tone. Ancients used sound for many things including healing on every level, as a form of communication through singing, inducing meditational trances, for rejuvenation at cellular levels, activating seeds for abundant crops, improving relations, as protection, to communicate with plants and animals, telepathically for all levels of communication, to create sacred spaces, to contact cosmic beings, to open gateways and portals, travel through time and space, etc.
Sound was held as the very essence of the life force and it was part of every tapestry of creation, stories, and sacred rituals – in many ways quite shamanic and magickal, as well as potent because it bypasses your mental faculties and defenses, as well as psychic blocks, so that you’re engaged vibrationally through emotion and spirit at a very core level that aids returning to natural harmony and wholeness.
Keening was a form of vocal lament (Gaelic – Irish/Scottish) by women mourning where they would invoke physical movements like rocking, clapping, or kneeling along with a very deep, expressive organized sound to channel their grief or sorrow.
I actually experienced this come through me, as a soul remembrance relived, when I lost Nestor. I mirrored this “keening” when she screamed and took her last breath. A friend and my then husband both witnessed and heard this. I remember my friend remarking on how it reminded her of this keening and I remember talking to Laura right after and she said that my voice sounded musical, despite my deep grief.
I also remember the waking dreams at night I would have not long before this took place, where I clearly heard myself singing in Gaelic, as a form of healing and communicating with Nature, and actually was, as it was heard in present time by my then husband. I’ve also had a friend share that I’ve chanted in Mayan in my sleep. And in Egypt, as shared before, I activated a deeper part of my voice and personal song, which also took place all around this time period – the biggest shift experienced to date.
Although I won’t go into the whole story here I will share that it was in Egypt that I learned and experienced the direct results of utilizing sound from my own voice to heal myself and create a huge physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual shift within me, which actually assisted my first Kundalini awakening. I instantaneously shifted my vibration by musical sound I channeled through me, going from deathly ill, feverish heat, aches, shaking, hunching over in pain, and throbbing through and through (that came on overnight due to major energetic shifts and reawakening on a cellular level), to harmonious balance, peace, and lightness in seconds, continuing into rebirthed vibrancy the next morning. It was quite a profound experience and story, but I also then had the opportunity to join my vibrational resonance with the frequencies emitted from the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid, by channeling musical sound on my own through the top of the Pyramid and into the beyond.
One of the people there that day remarked:
“The sound that came from you, while you were in the sarcophagus of the King’s Chamber, is something I will never forget. I’m getting vibed right now. What came out of you was magical, mystical, angelic……. Words fail to pain the experience. I’m truly honored for the experience.” ~Michael, Arizona
Song and music was with me since a young child, always singing and my parents have tape recordings of me playing by myself, as I always did, singing away. And it’s always been a source of healing and empowerment into wholeness.
But it was my five years with Nestor, my beloved soul twin and rabbit in this life, that ignited sound in my life in deepening ways that integrated my soul Earth and Cosmic history with this.
Your throat is the bridge between the inner and outer world – the birth canal of you for inner/outer. It’s also the gateway between heart and mind.
I believe in making sound your own personal song, which will help you to find your voice, activate your DNA and chakras, and ignite the spark of life and creative joy within you.
When we tune in with our essence/innermost nature, we are also tuning in to the vibrations of the Universe and this creates expansion in terms of our identity beyond the limitations of ego-based definitions of self. Resonating at cellular levels allows the process of healing to take place. We can listen to our bodies and each chakra for vibrational alignments that are specific to each of us individually and that share our particular resonance mirrors that will activate the highest potentials within us.
I feel that the most powerful way to holistically integrate is through our very own body temples, utilizing our vehicles of life, and our individual voice. While tools and modalities outside of us are powerful to assist us, it is within us that lies the greatest power and when we remember, honor, embrace, and utilize what is within each of us innately, this will provide the potent key.
Some may chant, tone, sing, or simply allow what ever sound and movements wants through. The musical flow or lyrical resonance I personally enjoy and find powerful is something similar to what is referred to as immanence: an inherent divine presence/transcendent – without limits of possible experience or knowledge.
It may involve any of the above mentioned, but it becomes musical and tells a story, as well as is like multi-layered vocal journeys infused with resonant meaning and frequency. It’s an “experience” and is what I would think of as conscious channeling of energy through your individual creative self-expression center – ancient…cosmic…timeless.
It is not a comprehensible language, although at time might sound like ancient words or sounds that remind one of ancient or cosmic languages. It’s about releasing judgment and logic, to allow the sound frequency from feeling resonance to move through you without articulation of understanding. It is from the nature of your emotions and the super-intelligence of your soul, not the learned-intelligence of the mind.
Just as Nature’s tendency is harmony, our bodies also innately want to return to natural harmony when we are out of harmony. Illness manifests from disharmony within the body. Sound vibrations affect our emotional states and can tune our body parts just as you would tune your instrument to achieve optimal resonance and musical harmony. Sound helps us to achieve deep meditational states, slows our pulse, restores our breath, and permeates every cell with greater peace and normal rhythm.
The sound from your voice, which I believe is the most powerful tool for shifting your personal frequency, links your unique voice to a Universal network of vibrations that is harmonized like a Cosmic symphony and keeps you in natural rhythm with ALL.
When we come from a pure place with our “song” with all of our inner most self, we help to shift the frequency of ourselves and others into a match of that resonance. It’s the same with “holding the space,” as we say, or “being the example” in embodiment, of a certain vibration/frequency. This resonance produces a mirroring resonance.
Each of us is a vibrational being radiating frequencies that are like a collection of vibrations equaling a “song.” This song emanates to others and is received subconsciously, producing responses in reflection to those vibrations. This is why words are not needed to convey things when sent telepathically.
This is also why we resonate with certain vibrations and sounds that reinforce our vibrational song, and create a sense of well-being, as harmony is reflected. Everything and everyone has a song and each song is a part of the collective and boundless symphony of all creation.
I leave you with this story that comes from a traditional story passed on in Griot tradition. It is rewritten by Jane Maluka and Dan Millman, Author of Way of the Peaceful Warrior, reworked it for one of his newsletters in April 2005:
“When a woman in one African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes out into the wilderness with a few friends and together they pray and meditate until they hear the song of the child.
They recognize that every soul has its own vibration that expresses its unique flavor and purpose.
When the women attune to the song, they sing it out loud. Then they return to the tribe and teach it to everyone else.
And when children are born into the village, the community gathers and sings their song, one unique melody for each unique child.
Later, when children begin their education, the village gathers and chants each child’s song. They sing again when each child passes into the initiation of adulthood, and at the time of marriage.
Finally, when the soul is about to pass from this world, the family and friends gather at the bedside, as they did at birth, and they sing the person to the next life. In the African tribe there is one other occasion upon which the Villagers sing to the child: If at any time during a person’s life, he or she commits a crime or aberrant social act, that individual is called to stand in the center of a circle formed by all members of the tribe. And once again the villagers chant the child’s song.
The tribe recognizes that the proper correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment, but love and the remembrance of identity.
When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another. A friend is someone who knows your song and sings it to you when you have forgotten it.
Those who love you are not fooled by the mistakes you have made or the dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not.
When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song, and we shall sing it well.
You may feel a little wobbly at that moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home.”
Crystals Abound! Crystal & Reiki Deep-Shifting Support Sessions Special Discount Through May 15th PLUS Update on Crystal Elixirs & Events
There’s a lot of Crystal love energy a-flowin’ lately and that will kick into another high gear this week and over the next couple of months.
Beginning tomorrow I’ll be giving a Crystal Healing & Pendulums Intro talk, back-to-back nights at Chapman University in the Fish Interfaith Center for the Chapman Health and Healing Club Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by a Crystal Magick full-day workshop on Thursday – all here locally to Orange County, CA. Then on May 30th it’s another Crystal Love & Healing infusion with a workshop in Tampa, FL, followed by the June Summer Solstice workshop weekend on the 20th and 21st of Magick and Manifestation, which will combine Crystals on one of the days along with other goodies. (You can still register for these events – message me if interested)
There’s also been an explosion of Crystal Elixir energy that had me working the Faery Alchemy. I made such huge batches of the two magickal elixirs over the Full Blood Moon Solar Eclipse of 4/4 that I was able to create over 60, 1 and 2 oz bottles of both droppers and sprays of these powerful babies! Woo!! That’s a lot of elixir potency and fun, which had me feeling like the mad alchemist while processing all of these. And they ARE in fact quite powerful. Not only have I experienced them at work in my life, but have heard how they’ve been experienced as such by others.
After half already going off to do their service, I still have about half left to be able to offer during the upcoming talks and workshops in support of requests to do so.
So currently, if you’ve still been wanting some, I’ll have to place a hold on orders until at least after this week, to ensure I have enough for these events.
If you’re interested in one of the Elixirs, either in dropper or spray form of #1 (Herkimer Diamond, Orange Jade, Iceland Quartz) or #2 (Sacred Geometry Rose Quartz & Amethyst) you can message me so I can place your name on a waiting list and will contact you as soon as I know what I have available, which may be as soon as this Friday for starters.
I’ve been doing a lot of personal work with my Crystals, including working with several new Crystal friends that have come into my life, both in dream time work and in waking life, along with sacred & ceremonial meditations the last couple of months. And it’s been quite amazing, especially at night and in the meditational work.
At the upcoming events I will have Crystal Pendulums and some Crystals available for purchase and as part of your registration gifts, with the addition of some of my very own potent Crystal babies that are ready to move on to new Guardians, as our work is complete and I’m focused on work with the new wave that have come in. Any that don’t connect with a new Keeper, I’ll share here thereafter.
And that brings me to a special offering guided by our Crystal friends in support of the collective.
I have experienced not only for myself, but for my clients, friends, and my rabbit Cosmo, the powerful support that Crystals provide, and especially so when combined with things like Reiki for example – creating a holistic approach to the processes we are going through that is more energetically aligned in vibration to where many of us are currently.
I work with Crystals in combination with Reiki, as well as musical sound resonance at times, as it feels most natural to me and it’s quite potent for really getting deep with making transformational shifts.
I do this by distance, unless we’re together at an event or on a sacred retreat/journey, in which case in-person experiences take place.
Enhanced power sessions, especially including Crystals, work rapidly and penetrate deeply so this cuts out the need for long sessions, as the quality and potency is received quickly and with laser focus. It’s true that quality versus quantity is most beneficial.
I know a bunch of you are going through some big stuff, as I hear from you personally, I read what you share in your blogs and social media posts, as well as am hearing from you in my dreams EVERY night, as I continue receiving collective visitations from so many people where I’m seeing, hearing, and feeling what individuals are going through.
If you are interested in one of these distant Crystal & Reiki sessions, want to intentionally engage and take accountability in your life, and are undergoing some deep shifts, healing, and/or intentional processes into the new you’d like support with, between now and May 15th I’m offering a special on these due to the overwhelming influx of messages I’m receiving and being guided on.
So, between now – April 20th – and May 15th (that’s 26 days counting today) you can receive the following Crystal & Reiki session specials:
***** Simply click through to your choice of session and on the Paypal invoice please add to the message, days and times that would work for you between now and then, along with your intents for the session, name, and city, state, country you reside in. If you don’t have or know a specific intent, and just want an overall supportive session, please specify that as well. *****
- One, 15 Minute Distant Crystal & Reiki Deep-Shifting Support Session: $55 (Savings of $20 – Regular Price $75)
- Three, 15 Minute Distant Crystal & Reiki Deep-Shifting Support Sessions: $111 (Savings of $54 – Pay for 2 and Receive 1 session for $1)
The advantage of more than one session is continually bombarding oneself with supportive energy to chip away at pesky resistance, blocks, fears…especially if you know you’re a good self-sabotager, or you are feeling really stuck.
However, some people are ready for change and one session can be just the energetic kick to get you over the edge. It’s always an individual journey and results are always based on your partnering with conscious responsibility to your personal process and what is needed from you to engage and embrace for the change to happen.
There are no quick-fixes except each person’s willingness to do the work and the energetic support provides the supportive platform and loving flow, along with your current protocol, for those potentials with an infusion of a powerful jolt.
Sessions must be used and scheduled between April 20th and May 15th.
I couldn’t NOT post this beautiful image that a friend sent me saying she thought of me right away when she saw it. I’d say she knows me quite well, as if this image isn’t me, I don’t know what is.
I get lost, or rather, I find myself in the magick, innocence, inspiration, enchantment, ethereal mystery, and love it conveys. It reminds me of my time in Iceland and of so many elements of life and creation I hold dear.
I could write a story about all the things this image brings up and ignites within me.
But instead, I thought I would share it, as it just twinkles with magick and invokes a sense of wonder and imagination. Powerful things for us to cultivate in our lives in order to harness our creative alchemy into manifestation of being.
Don’t stop believing. And DO start living as if everything is a miracle, because it IS and so are YOU.
“Being born on the earth is the highest honor and greatest privilege. To be alive as human beings gives us the chance to pull off exquisite and Herculean feats of magic that are not possible in nirvana or heaven or any other so-called paradise, higher dimension, or better place.” ~Rob Brezsny
“The appearance of things change according to the emotions, and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” ~Kahlil Gibran
“Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Such a fun piece to create this one was and oh how I love the symbolism, as fellow Pisces myself.
This sacred tattoo design was created for a special Pisces client with some beautiful intentions she wanted to bring forth and emanate with her design we’d be co-creating.
What came to me right away when I was feeling into things and got the sizing we were working with, along with the upper, middle back area we both had intuited for her separately, was to create a personal Mandala.
Yet, not simply one that uses symmetry, but one that is more organic, flowing, feels like the energy is moving, graceful and feminine, yet also has harmony and balance to it within that organic execution. And since my client likes things off-center slightly, having it energetically balanced, but not necessarily all the exact same so that there is a sense of the natural at work, felt right.
Because of her love for nature and the ocean, the imagery that came through was of things that mirror this, while also reflecting the essence and energy of her and things to help empower and infuse her life with more of, drawing forth her gifts, and sharing who she is in essence.
I always have synchronicities that take place, and interestingly the night before I did the full outline execution of the vision, I had a dream of the ocean and a home that sat at the edge of a pebbled beach, where the ocean touched. And then the vision flowed through. I always receive the guidance and support to help with the channeling and to connect more deeply with the energy at hand.
Immediately a few things popped out to include, which are the seahorse, starfish, and ocean waves.
There’s also a lot of that ancient and sacred feminine flow of life in spirals everywhere in it, mirroring the spiral of life, the cycles of life, and even the nautilus and the tops of seashells I was feeling in essence.
These spirals then showing up in the waves, the curls of the starfish legs, and the curls of the seahorse tails.
There is the element of water here, but also an earthy grounded feel, which creates balance – this through a hint of almost a leaf-like design on the starfish body and the way the seahorses hold the energy grounded that is flowing all around…so like that connection to your core and body, although you are able to move in and out, be a chameleon, shift, and change.
The little “wings” of the seahorse bring in an aspect of the element of air as well, and since seahorses are considered the “hummingbirds of the sea,” they are bringing in the wisdom of these little messengers of the gods as well.
The two seahorses also remind me of a painting I did a few years back called “Dance of the Twin Flames” which had two seahorses in it.
To me, this aspect of the two seahorses is not isolated to a union found/created outside of oneself, but truly speaks about the union, and honor and cultivation, of our parts and the Sacred/Divine Feminine and Masculine within each of us that we bring together in wholeness and to be in the wholeness of our essence.
The two beautiful sea horses (known as hummingbirds of the sea) symbolize the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in harmony as they unite. This equates to an honoring of all of our parts and both our left and right brain, as well as a marriage within us of mutual respect for each of the energies our parts have to share with us and that we can offer to the world in our most shining way when we honor them and bring them forth through our individual gifts.
As I’ve written before, sea horse wisdom shares the messages of joy, understanding the importance of the courtship dance within and without, stability in emotional waters, ceremony, bonding monogamously for life, great keepers of secrets, keen vision, psychic energy, analysis, strategy, independence, etiquette, sharing and mixing up of gender roles (as the male sea horse carries the young and births them), the water element, and connection with Poseidon.
Sea horses are graceful and almost mythological creatures that are one of those rare species that don’t seem to fit with any others in their category. They possess so many different qualities, similar to a platypus, and have been around since ancient times (40 million years ago). They can even change their color and pattern to match the environment they are in, so they speak to our ability to merge and flow with change with greater ease and grace.
And although they are known as “hummingbirds of the sea,” having dorsal fins that flutter as much as 35 times per second, they are built more for maneuverability than speed and actually don’t move around all that much. They prefer to wrap their tails around sea vegetation for stability, hence speaking to a grounding energy, although they live within the waters of life. They are able to hover just as hummingbirds, however their dorsal fin flapping speed is amazing since it takes place under water.
They are both remarkable and ethereal, creating and bringing an air of mystery and intrigue to our life, along with enchantment, magick, and a lot of balancing wisdom that grounds these more etheric concepts. They make dreams a reality…the unbelievable believable…the miraculous a daily potential.
The starfish that cradles the two seahorses as the backdrop and anchoring of the piece has such magickal symbolism as well. The starfish is a universal and celestial symbol of infinite divine love. It has been used to represent the Virgin Mary – or Stella Maris, which means Star of the Sea – an ancient title she goes by because she is believed to lovingly intercede as a guide and protector of those who travel over troubled waters or seek their livelihoods on the sea. For this reason she is also seen as an emblem of salvation during trying times, which the starfish reflects in this mirroring symbolism.
In addition to love, the starfish also emanates the energies of inspiration, guidance, brilliance, intuition, and vigilance, with its connection to the stars. In Egyptian mythology, the starfish is one of the many titles of the Goddess Isis – a name by which tempest-tossed sailors adored and honored her as. It is thought that the attributes of a marine deity may have been bestowed on Isis by sea-faring Greeks of Alexandria and that this assumption is then thought to point to Sirius, the bright star of Isis, being the Stella Maris.
The starfish is considered a keystone species that affects many other organisms in an ecosystem and plays a critical role in maintaining the structure of an ecological community – so this points to our interconnectedness and how your example of life not only changes things in your individual experience, but affects and can support the collective.
The starfish is also a symbol of healing and regeneration due to its amazing ability to regenerate an arm and an entirely new starfish. They are able to simply drop an arm and scurry away to safety at will in order to outsmart predators. Because quite a few of the vital organs are housed in starfish arms, this enables the possibility to grow an entire new starfish from an arm and part of the central disc, if ripped off it. So this points to our resiliency, regenerative and healing abilities, endurance, and personal power.
Starfish wisdom includes a connection to the Star People, regeneration, Moon magick, beauty, and tidal movement. They are a way for us to realize our potentials, promises of dreams, ways to connect with the mystical, and to flow with the waters of life in trust. They also infuse an essence of joy when you look upon them, like twinkling star treasures from the sea.
The symbolism of the number five (in their five legs) not only points to the pentacle and the five elements, but carries the essence of radical transformation, travel, adventure, motion, wonder of life, appreciation of the perception of chaos around us, action, and journeying within and without to name a few.
The legs of the starfish, in the design, are complimented by five swirling waves of the ocean in mirror to the spiraling energy.
All of this creating the feel of a flowering and blossoming effect with the entire Mandala shape AND the two seahorses inside also have a hint of heart-shape creation between the two of them…perfect for that unconditional love energy sitting over the Heart Chakra, emanating out in waves of flowing, soft, and graceful love for all of life.
In all, it’s sort of a watery star blossom emblem and celebration of life, worthy of a true Sea Goddess or Elemental.

An interesting little shift click took place this week that was beyond an individual experience, but truly spoke to something collective that is and has been happening.
It touches on a topic I expound upon a lot in my workshops, as it comes up often as a challenging one for most people and it’s that of money, creating your passion as your life’s work, energy exchanges, and helping to create a new paradigm that supports all the visions and ideals you have, have been working towards manifesting, and have invested your time learning about intellectually for the path of work that you are choosing.
So, this week I had to take a little time out of my work flow to focus on getting my taxes done. Yes, that usually dreaded thing that comes up for us all, and yet while I don’t believe in taxes, and don’t buy into the whole system, I also have a peaceful and playful way of approaching everything that doesn’t create a tug-o-war within me when engaging in things NOT me.
And in fact, I’ve also found a way to have gratitude for the sheer ability to be able to pay my taxes through what I choose to do as extension of my life’s work. And like everything else where I have a magick bubble around me that I journey in always through life, I simply play the “Fool” card and see the whole process as a game where I’m inputting puzzle pieces and codes that ultimately are supporting a new paradigm I’m helping into reality by my creating an equality to the work I do in solid compliment to the work others have deemed more valuable – until now.
A little background – I’ve worked quite hard at building the life I choose to have and to be able to do what I know I’m here to do. And that hasn’t come easy. I’ve held a variety of “regular” jobs in my past, including office jobs in the insurance and investment sectors of business, but ultimately through my life’s journey, came to know that I cannot deny who I am and what ultimately is the most natural and healthy expression for me to be channeling in this regard.
And although I was always being of service in all of my interesting positions and jobs I held, it wasn’t until I made peace with that and blessed it all without charge, that I was able to walk away and move into what for me was most personally satisfying.
That also took a lot of work and time to build and streamline into being, to get to a place where I could actually support myself and pay my bills with doing what I love and what simply IS ME.
And that didn’t come without running up against energetic struggles with conditioned patterning, beliefs, and fears I had instilled within me not just passed on by my parents, but by society, and the collective at large, past past and present life past.
I remember each time I quit my “regular” office jobs, how I was told back then by my parents that it would be the biggest mistake of my life. They, like many, came from the old-school way of thinking you should go about earning your money and what is and isn’t possible – you couldn’t possibly do what you love and make that work, nor were they going to try it because of this instilled fear.
However, I did A LOT of personal work before I left my very last “regular” office job, not only creating such a peaceful and beautifully supportive send-off from that job where they even hired me thereafter to do mural work for their lobby, but I also did NOT come up against my parents’ antagonistic and disapproving remarks. In fact, they were quite supportive and excited, due to the way I approached it all and my process with it. So, although they had some old beliefs and fears still, there was no negative reaction.
That said, it’s still been a journey on energetic levels to shift things at even deeper core levels, and not just for myself and them, but collectively, as I see that everything I/we do is so integrally important in shifting what takes place for ALL.
I’ve felt that until we’re able to shift things within the current framework structure, we can’t simply turn our back on it and think we can create something new and grounded in lasting foundation, as there’s still a core old foundation working behind the scenes.
I feel that we need to work to shift what is, by doing the underlying and deep work with it, and THEN we will see the new suddenly seem to magickally light up, but it’s not because of abandoning the old, but in cultivating it with transmutational alchemy.
So, we temporarily look like the Fool, while we play in the old framework, dancing our way through it and infusing our magick with each step to transform things in a way that will benefit the greater good and they don’t even have to know that it’s happening.
This all really fully came into deeper, brighter light for me this week while I was doing my taxes and upon completion when I was talking to my parents, whom have since all these years completely undergone their own shifts because of the way I’ve been doing this process behind the scenes.
They’ve had a chance to see me build a life and my life’s work into being something of value beyond the scope of simply paying the bills. And little by little, it has helped, especially my dad, to realize what IS possible, that I’m actually doing what I said I would, it’s not “pie in the sky” talk, and anyone/I/he could actually pursue their dreams if one so chose to.
But this week was a huge click that I felt ripple out collectively. I’ve been seeing and hearing this happen all around by others I know who also have been doing similar processes and brought their life’s work into recognized equality and value to all that has previously been deemed as such.
When I completed my taxes, I realized that I had actually hit a milestone. Although I’ve been making a living from my work and paying the bills, as they say, I didn’t realize until I did my taxes that I had actually surpassed income I’d ever made at so-called “regular” jobs my parents had once said I’d regret leaving, which until now had still been holding that title.
It was such a huge epiphany click in the moment, where symbolically and literally a “tipping of the scales” had taken place.
I’d seen it as this so far: the old paradigm of “jobs” and “work” used to tip the scales in perceived and actual value the collective held it as, and all other things like the creative arts, healing arts, spiritual pursuits, and anything others would have deemed “hobbies” rather than the actual life path passions they were, were invalidated and not held as equals in value.
Little by little, I’ve seen how we as a collective have been working at shifting that, slowly creating more balance and equality, as we all get back in touch with our innate gifts and essence, and channel that forth with more self love, validation, and courageous belief.
After all, these passionate pursuits had at one time actually been invaluable, but were cut down by shifts in consciousness.
That’s why I celebrate and support people putting any time they possibly can into supporting their gifts and passions, and believing in themselves, as this is very important in order to have this shift take place, not to mention creates greater essence wholeness within each individual that brings more well-being overall. And of course, I’ve been doing my part.
We’ve been bringing the things people want to deny, push aside, fear, or degrade, into the light, by shining our lights, and thus more and more we will create a balanced equality.
Unfortunately, right now that equates to demonstrating this under the current framework of our monetary structure, since that is what is collectively being embraced. And once it is equalized and fortified under this guise, it can then turn into a whole new paradigm where different frameworks can operate that utilize other forms of energy exchange, which money simply is one of.
So many people have paved the way to enable myself and others to be able to experience this now, and for them and all of the struggles, courage, and challenges they faced to support this into being, I am eternally grateful. I promise to continue to do my part in honor of your sacrifices and contributions, as well as in honor of doing only that which I know how to do – follow my truth.
And although others have already created their pieces of this energetic framework, it isn’t until I experience it firsthand for myself that I share about it, as I’d rather speak from having done than just knowing what is possible.
So, when in my own life I saw myself “tip the scales”, which actually created an energetic shift within the conversation I had with my parents and in general that I could feel, it was to me a sign that it IS happening and KNOW that it is a possibility for everyone who chooses to experience this.
The things that don’t fit into the mainstream structure are no longer energetically “alternative”, but rather are equal. They always have been in the eyes of the All That Is and in the inner recesses of our truth connected to that infinite wisdom, but we are continuing to experience that truth in the very fiber of our daily lives – NOT JUST in theory. And I feel this is going to continue in very large ways increasingly, as if so many before me/us, and now I and many others are experiencing this, that means it will soon become “mainstream” for many, many more – the ripple effect at its best.
I literally felt a click happen in that moment this week and in my talking to my parents. Just like the click that happened the day I finally was ready to quit my last “job”. And to say it was exciting is an understatement. I even heard the click in the resonance of my parents’ voices. A vibrational shift took place that shifted things to a new level that sounded and felt harmonious and there is a new dynamic in play within our family framework, my personal framework, and the collective framework that kicked in with all the others on this same trajectory.
And that’s huge!
It’s not about being a millionaire, and I’m in no way what some may deem as “rich” monetarily, but what I and many others have achieved is truly a collective gift that I will continue to foster and nurture both in myself and others because I do believe this “shift” has hit the fan and will, as it has been, just continue to rapidly explode in interesting and amazing ways for everyone.
