Creating Alchemy with Crystal Elixirs of Liquid Light


crystals

Herkimer Diamond and Andaras in the light

I shared about crystal elixirs quite a while back, but felt inspired to again.

On the Winter Solstice New Moon of 2014, I was guided to create a new crystal elixir, which I’ve been taking since Christmas Eve. I hadn’t made one for some time now, so I found the intuitive nudge to be important to follow, which came out of the blue.

I’ve made different combinations before, some of which had many crystal essences providing their love. And each of them for different purposes that were aligned with and appropriate for that current time period they were created and my/others’ needs.

But this one I created on the Winter Solstice I knew was to be of a very special essence that would support taking things to another level.

It is a very pure, potent, extremely high vibrational essence, created only from three crystals that communicated to me their desire immediately:

  1. A very powerful, clear-essence Herkimer Diamond with millions of years old, alive water bubble inside of it and tiny rainbows
  2. An Opalescent Pink Andara with rainbow inside of it that embodies the nature of the Sacred Feminine, the highest heart wisdom, great mystery of the Shekina, energy of the dove and rose, wisdom of the inner Sophia, embodiment of the Goddess in form
  3. A Celestial Gold Andara with crystal clear purity that embodies pure light at the atomic level, represents a grand shift from a world of reflections to radiant light

Feels like liquid diamond light essence filled with love.

I did a sacred crystal elixir ritual that day of the Solstice New Moon, leaving the creation out in the garden for 24 hours to work its alchemy under the Moon and Sun light. These crystal elixirs contain the “vibration” of the intent, infusions, and energies present within the crystals, what I infuse, and from the elements, and energies abound that are invited.

I directed energy into the elixir from outside the glass bowl with three other very special and powerful crystals of mine…two healing wands – a Faery and Lemurian/Atlantean one, and one crystal that channels my beloved Nestor, whom not only carries a balanced energy infusing Cosmic and Earth and sacred masculine and feminine, but also is pure, unconditional love and wholeness embodied in the alchemy of our connection and her love for all.

These three crystals were placed in a triangular formation pointing in to the essence mixture, to activate and draw more energy to it, infusing a lot of magick and intention that I programmed and invited.

Three seemed the magickal number, on many levels, including transmutation and the Middle Way.

Crystal elixirs are very powerful and not necessarily for everyone, unless you’re accustomed to the energy or are ready and inviting of the changes they can facilitate. Even how much is used, when to use it, or whether to use it externally, internally, or in your environment, are all things to consider.

I’ve found them to be very aligned for me, as their energy is not dense like other forms we can take (ex: supplements, powders, etc) that may not be as aligned with our bodies anymore, and don’t create results anymore.

But they ARE powerful. The instant I placed one drop on my tongue of this essence, I felt altered. And since taking it, things have been shifting a LOT internally, supporting a recalibration on the inside, that is going to take shape and manifest on the outside eventually. Right now a lot is percolating internally and being cleansed, which is helping to sift through things to the purest alignments only. That is exactly what I intended and welcome, however that needs to manifest or whatever the process is to get there.

But that may not be such a welcome experience for everyone.

This particular elixir is working at a very accelerated vibration that the parts of you will need to catch up to in order to be in harmonious balance and flow at the same level – this may induce what is like a cleansing, detoxing, or reorganization that can be as easy and as graceful as you are ready to embrace or that matches the work you’ve done to prepare for it, but there are other elixirs I’ve created that have been focused on grounding, integrating, or nurturing specific energies only.

Likely, if you’ve been drawn to a crystal elixir like this, then on some level you are ready, even if you find yourself fighting it, and at any moment you can shift the experience of that recalibration and aligning taking place when you fully take accountable responsibility.

Crystal elixirs are one way to assist the integrative journey of shifting that our DNA restructuring has been undergoing. Some people area also drawn to flower essences and essential oils (to name a couple).

Many may be experiencing blow outs or increased healing crises at this time and may find that the old ways that used to work in helping to heal, no longer are, and alternative ways of nurturing support, more aligned with our current energy may be of more benefit now. This is because our bodies are operating at a different frequency and denser things no longer match our new vibrations. The DNA shifts are raising our frequencies and energies into becoming more crystalline and light form.

And our temple bodies need fortifying to match the frequency of our vibrations and to receive the proper rebuilding reflections for the newly created divinity of being we are becoming.

Crystal elixirs, which I like to refer to them as (but many call them gem elixirs) are a means by which we can create essences of the metaphysical properties that the crystals are, through a process that utilizes these as energies in a charged elixir – a liquid mixture created intentionally that can be taken internally, applied or sprayed externally on us or in our immediate environment.

They are infusions of one or more crystals, spring or distilled water (I used the highest level of alkaline/ionized water) combined with the power of the sun, moon and any other special magickal goodies you feel drawn to incorporate into the process. They can be stored for longer durations by placing them in glass bottles (some come with droppers or sprays) and mixed with a very small percentage/ratio of alcohol (usually vodka) or apple cider vinegar – just enough to preserve it only, then stored in dark areas away from direct light and heat.

You can make a mother batch, which I did, and then create smaller bottles to use for different purposes or to share with others.

Since supplements are more dense than my current needs call for, more homeopathic and crystalline essences are much more aligned and of benefit to me right now.

These crystal elixirs are similar to flower essences in the way that they are made so that they contain the “essence” of the vibrations of the chosen crystal and stones that are used. Each crystal and stone holds different metaphysical properties and have energies that work to support and empower different things.

These high quality crystal essences work in harmony with the body by interacting with our bio-sheath and chemical and energetic physiology, and are natural and self-adjusting. When the crystals are activated by natural sun or moonlight they transfer their vibrational signature into water, creating a safe, effective supportive remedy that can be used in conjunction with, and in complement to, all other healing modalities.

They are not meant to replace professional medical advice. They need to be used with care. They need to be made with crystals that are not water-soluble and with only the safest, non-toxic crystals in order to ingest them – meaning they do not contain mercury, arsenic, copper, or other toxic substances. You can look them up in a good mineral guide if in question. They work well with children, plants and animals too.

Externally they can be gently sprayed over the body, in a room, or any space where the energy is needed. They can also be applied to specific body parts or areas needing extra healing or empowerment.

As you consume the elixir over time, the vibrational essences work on the root cause of “dis-ease” to support clearing of the issue that originally created it so that the “dis-ease” can be relieved. They can be made for immediate consumption or can be preserved and used sublingually.

The magick is in the choosing, or being chosen by, the most potent crystals for you and the intents and sacredness created around the process, as it is a VERY sacred process indeed and a very special bonding relationship that is created between the crystals and the person helping to alchemically brew and program them. So, the most important part is the crystals from which the essence will be made and there are different ways, as shared, that you can figure this out, including kinesiology testing.

They can be used singly or in cool combinations. Mixing them can really make for some potent elixir magick! This also makes it easier than having to make a lot of separate ones and taking a number of them for the desired results.

Again, crystal elixirs can be created for immediate consumption, in preserved sublingual form, or into sprays, essential oils, bath, body, or ritual oils, and used for any sacred healing purpose you desire.

I know that crystal elixirs are exactly the right energy vibrations for me to work with right now that reflect and align most optimally at this time, and are most supportive to the integration process I am in. It’s important to trust your intuition for guidance as to what is best for you.

Given my love for and relationship with crystals, this is a natural process for me and one I honor and do not take lightly as a crystal keeper, guardian, and caretaker of the Earth and her children. I feel that it is important to ask the crystals if they want to work in partnership to create an elixir, as afterall, it is their essence that they are sharing with us. And then I like to create a sacredness and reverence around the ritual creation – cleansing, charging, and programming the crystals, at their welcome to do so, and nurturing them through the whole process, since they will be nurturing me from the inside out.

In this way I can ensure having happy crystals and that makes for a beautiful partnership in crystal alchemy elixirs. 🙂

 

Crystal elixirs are something I teach in the Crystal Magick and the Journey Within: A Creative Exploration for Personal Alchemy Workshop.

Crystal Magick and the Journey Within: A Creative Exploration for Personal Alchemy (New Workshop)


August will host a new workshop experience to explore together. Yay!

My plate has been full, but what I’ve come to see is that everything has its divine timing. That said, I’ve been wanting to offer this workshop, and others, for quite some time, so with the recent multiple requests, I embraced the Universal nudge that the timing was now. The collective is ready, so I’m shifting my “plans” to embrace readiness too.

That being said, I’m super excited about this experiential workshop, which will be offered ongoing.

Here is some of what you can look forward to in this workshop:

This workshop is for the creative, imaginative, and inspired free thinkers and integrative visionaries who want to experience the magickal world of the Crystal Kingdom and your Inner Realm for empowered living and activating greater potentials in simple and fun ways. This is done in a flowing way to allow each person’s unique voice to be heard and valued, which allows greater freedom to explore deeper.

People who are drawn to my workshops are not people wanting to learn structure, rules, and dogmatic approaches. But they are people who are wanting to delve into the discipline of “unlearning” in order to unleash their true gifts. They are ready to explore the nature of their own uniqueness through the different modalities and perspectives available, and come to create their own journey through the process of remembering and awakening what is within. My role is to gently guide this process and facilitate experiential activation, which takes place in subtle ways simply through the energetic exchange we share.

Reverence and use of crystals goes back to the dawning of civilization and have been used for centuries for their healing powers. Their connection with specific parts of the body and its organs come from traditional Western and Eastern Astrology. 5000+ year old ancient text formulas from India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese Medicine claim healing with the use of crystals that are now used in modern medical prescriptions. The Christian Bible refers to crystals over 200 times, crystalline structures have been found in the ruins of Babylonia and in the ancient Egyptian and Chinese tombs of rulers, and many of the early civilizations of the Earth (Mayan, Aztec, American Indian, African, Celtic) utilized quartz crystals in sacred ceremonies. These electromagnetic synthesizers that were once only a royal and priestly experience, are now a gift available to us all.

Shifting Energy Calls for a Shift in Supportive Protocol


Photo by Ulyana Michailov of the dailyritual.net

I was just reflecting on this yesterday, no coincidence, in taking a look at my new protocol of supportive remedies I’ve been utilizing to assist with my current needs and changes. I noted how I have stepped away from the types of exercise I was doing, I’d become immune to supplements I was taking, my appetite changed and my body called for different foods, different crystals found their way into my life for energetic support, some homeopathic remedies and liquid form doses rather than solids have spoken to me more, I began to create my own crystal elixirs and have seen the direct successful results they have been having, and in general because of ultra sensitivities and speedy change, becoming adamantly clear about what I want, who and what I surround myself with energetically, and in every moment embracing a new perspective immediately that alters my direct energetic experience. I’ve seen a simultaneous integration of going deeper within, while also embracing a larger emanation without. In general, more gentle and energetically aligned resonance with my natural authenticity in the now.

My work has shifted in direct result as well in what is channeling through and how. Coming from a place of embracing that everything is temporary and can shift at any moment, is very relieving. The only thing that is enduring is LOVE. Love for all of creation, for each other, the Earth, the cosmos, and yourself.

So, when I read Laura Bruno’s blog post this morning that was speaking to the same, and after seeing countless blogs from others reiterating everything I’m experiencing or that I have come to feel is taking place, it’s another nudge that all is well and a reminder to trust your intuitive and heart guidance, as it really DOES have the answers. I felt I should go ahead and briefly share my synchronous alignment with Laura and others, rather than keep it to myself, so others might also find that supportive puzzle piece that answers the nudges and questions they’ve been getting about their transformative experiences.

Here is a little excerpt from Laura’s post, which you can read at the link in full below:

“Because people are changing so rapidly, some folks who’ve used natural remedies in the past find that these are either no longer working, or, conversely, way too strong. Homeopathics, crystal elixers, and flower remedies work primarily on energy, so some people have found these do a better job of addressing any symptoms of DNA Activation. As we continue to move towards light and away from density, we will find increased effectiveness from subtler “medicines.” We will also continue to experience what I call overshooting the mark, when we blast ourselves with aggression –whatever that means for us, whether pills, mega doses of herbs, too much exercise, etc. Think “subtle and aligned,” and you’ll remain on the right track.” Laura Bruno

Love the synchronicity! Be gentle and loving to yourself!

Full Moon in Leo – Revealing the Authentic You Abundantly


Leo by Fantasy Artist, Josephine Wall

Happy Leo Full Moon!

I love this article by Symbolic Living that shares some really good insights about the energies of focus for this Full Moon: http://www.symbolicliving.com/full-moon-in-leo-february-7-2012-astrology-horoscope-forecast/ I hope you will read it and take it to heart.

I received the intuited hit last night that another crystal elixir was in the making. (I created one on the Aquarius New Moon we had recently.) I instantly knew which crystal wanted in this time – Citrine! And when I realized it was a Leo Full Moon, it felt very energetically aligned and appropriate, as Citrine contains a lot of the supportive energies that we will be working with over this Full Moon, not to mention is connected with the Sun just like Leo. When I checked in with a little help from my pendulum, I received a resounding big YES from my 2 Citrine friends and all other crystals said “no thank you, not this time.” So, this potent elixir will be a pure Citrine creation, made from one beautiful raw citrine and one polished small sphere (very cool to get the two different energies that each contain, like a full spectrum of Citrine’s beauty and potency). Full Moons are great for creating abundance of intents you have.

The energy of Citrine is so fitting, I feel, for this Full Moon. Here is my recent blog post that included information on Citrine’s properties (scroll down to the image and info on Citrine):

https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/crystals-and-stones-for-support-with-grounding-integration-and-revitalization/

And here is a cool info from shimmerlings.com’s sharings on Citrine:

Mystical Properties:

In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against snake venom and evil thoughts. Citrine is known as a “success” stone because it is told in folklore to promote success and abundance, especially in business and commerce.

Citrine is one of the only stones that dissipates negative energy and never requires cleansing or clearing. It emits a warm energy that promotes optimism. It attracts abundance and is known as “a merchant’s stone” to be placed in a cash register or where one conducts business, to not only acquire positive wealth but to maintain it as well. It enhances the body’s healing energy and opens the conscious mind to intuition. It helps one adjust and adapt to process changes, feeling confident and secure. Citrine’s magnetic radiating energy can aid in voice projection, making this the perfect stone for actors and public speakers.

Assists in acquiring wealth and to maintain the state of wealth. Citrine is helpful for directing creative energy into the physical body. Some find it helpful in building self-esteem. This crystal is an invaluable aid to the digestion of all emotions, place it on the solar plexus in crystal healing layouts. I find that Citrine is useful in combating decisiveness allowing me to make important decisions on a regular basis.

Healing Properties:

Physically, citrine can aid digestion, increase visual ability, and to balance the thyroid. It is beneficial to the endocrine and digestive system – cleansing, purifying and eliminating poisons that have built up. Citrine has the power to calm and soothe distressed conditions. It reduces ulcer flare-ups and is good for detoxifying all the bodies.

Magical Properties:

Energy: Projective
Element: Fire
Powers: Anti-nightmare, protection, psychic power

Citrine is worn at night to eliminate fear, to prevent nightmares and to ensure a good night’s sleep.

Citrine may eliminate self-destructive behaviors or tendencies, and raise self-esteem. This stone should be used to align with the higher self and to protect your aura.

A member of the quartz family, citrine can be used is most the same fashion as crystal/clear quartz. The benefit being that it’s golden yellow color adds Sun energy to the work. When worn, it’s vibrant shades help to lift the spirits if one is feeling down or perhaps dealing with mild depression.

Citrine is a good stone for scrying into matter pertaining to money and other forms of prosperity.

Zodiac:

Planets: Sun and Jupiter

Traditional Birthstone for the Month of November.

Stone of Gemini and Virgo, citrine symbolized individuality and confidence. It bring renewed determination.

I am looking forward to this new pure Citrine elixir, which is brewing as we speak. I started it last night in the backyard, asking the garden faeries to work their magick in, after I programmed the Citrines and then I moved them out front today to get the rising sun and day sunshine and they have shared they want to remain out over night again, so I will move them to the back yard later today. Looking forward to it, as the last elixir I made, which I still have huge quantities of and have been taking daily, has really aided in shifting things energetically and helping to balance things out, as intended.

And interesting the focus on the energy of “money,” which I’ve posted before about on here and on Facebook and again with Citrine and other nudges in my life, have seen how working with the element of money is important right now in the totality of our physically integrating things.

Another synchronicity towards this energy focus nudge was my dear Laura Bruno’s blog post today, which has some great info in it called Pentacles, Prosperity and Elementals: http://laurabruno.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/pentacles-prosperity-and-elementals/

To add to her eloquently shared insights, here is a recent blog post I did that incorporated these same principles called: Money, Physical Well Being…The Abundant Journey to Center – Integrating It All Without Any Charge

https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/money-physical-well-being-the-abundant-journey-to-center-integrating-it-all-without-any-charge/

I hope you enjoy the energies present to embrace and if you are interested in any crystal elixirs for yourself to work with and support these processes, you may contact me with inquiries and requests.

As I posted yesterday, many of us along this journey of expansion, shifting and re-calibrating into new forms and templates of experience, are going through the processes of integration in order to balance out the inbalances we have created along the way. To read more on this see yesterday’s post:

https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/money-physical-well-being-the-abundant-journey-to-center-integrating-it-all-without-any-charge/

Along this process many light workers who have so diligently been expanding and fortifying their gifts, spiritual consciousness and visionary energies, have lost parts of themselves along the way in doing so. The imbalances created and the charges that remain, along with the processing out of any last remnants of old pieces, angers, frustrations, judgments, etc., (which are releasing toxic cleansing) are now what we are faced with integrating so that we can operate optimally and not fragmented.

So as we start our journey towards this centering integration to natural harmony with all of our parts, each other and the earth and cosmos, different modalities, tools, and new perspectives become increasingly more useful to the DNA restructuring that has taken place. Many may be experiencing blow outs or increased healing crises at this time and may find that the old ways that used to work in helping to heal, no longer are, and alternative ways of nurturing support more aligned with our current energy may be of more benefit now. This is because our bodies are operating at a different frequency and denser things no longer match our new vibrations. The DNA shifts are raising our frequencies and energetics into becoming more crystalline and light form.

It’s not that these alternatives are new, but they may be new to what your usual protocol has been, they may only resonate for you now as opposed to when your body was more dense and could be regulated with resonating matches of that energy, and they are being infused with different energy that matches the now, that was not before.  Our temple bodies need fortifying to match the frequency of our vibrations and to receive the proper rebuilding reflections for the newly created divinity of being we are becoming.

We need very grounded and strong foundations for these new forms we are becoming and creating.

With that being said, I can share from my own experience, the reality of this. Remember, everyone is on their own timeline and stage of their journey, so this is only to share the changes I’ve gone through that might resemble or reflect some of your own. I have found myself naturally gravitating towards things I normally would not have resonated with at the level I do now. New crystals and stones call me now that before I appreciated, but wasn’t working with. Different foods that are grounding and more cooked vegan as opposed to all raw vegan have felt more appropriate for my energy and the balancing needed. Each of these providing the integration from over-expansion in one way. Different shifts with the exercise I was engaging in that feels gentle, balancing and freeing rather than overly extreme, which equates to things like just walking on the beach and easy hikes, biking or simply more time spent with my little lovely animal friends connecting – earthy, peaceful grounding. Focusing on the remnants of any unfinished pieces to really solidify into a strong foundation, based only on the new and not the old, and focus on being, doing and manifesting everything I’ve energetically put focused work into for years, in bigger ways, which includes surpassing any fears that may have previously blocked any of it – in general just showing up always and saying yes and letting the how work itself out in the moment. This equates to knowing that the dress rehearsal was all the behind-the-scenes work and I need only to just pop out on stage with courageously vulnerable readiness and do what I know naturally in my heart to do.

And so came the partnership call I answered to start creating and working with crystal elixirs. Thanks Laura for the nudge! And thank you my crystal friends for your eagerness and joy to always work with me. It’s not that this is a new concept, but in this life I had mostly worked with crystals in their external forms while tuning into their energies they provided for healing and support that they shared, but now the journey would involve things at the essence level and blending things on all levels.  I have been working with crystals a lot, but now we would join forces and start alchemically working our magick on new levels reflecting current energetic needs.

Crystal elixirs, which I like to refer to them as, but many call them gem elixirs, are a means by which we can create essences of the metaphysical properties that the crystals are, through a process that utilizes these as energies in a charged elixir, liquid mixture to our intentions and needs that can be taken internally, applied or sprayed externally on us or in our immediate environment. They are infusions of one or more crystals, spring or distilled water combined with the power of the sun, moon and any other special magickal goodies you feel drawn to incorporate into the process. Since supplements are more dense than my current needs call for, more homeopathic and crystalline essences are much more aligned and of benefit to me right now.

These crystal elixirs are similar to flower essences in the way that they are made so that they contain the “essence” of the vibrations of the chosen crystal and stones that are used. Each crystal and stone holds different metaphysical properties and have energies that work to support and empower different things. You can consult a crystal healing book or research each crystal online to discover their properties and which would be more useful for you and what you are needing support with. I always like to intuit which to use or consult my pendulum for which would be best at this time for me. Usually what you are drawn to on a heart level, not by eye, is revealing as to which crystals would be good for you. But if your intuition isn’t working strongly for you, or quite as up to speed as you’d like right now, you can simply look up the properties and let yourself be guided in trust when something clicks a light bulb or a ding, ding, ding, ding, ding. There is always the option of consulting someone else who can tune in for you too.

These high quality crystal essences work in harmony with the body by interacting with our bio-sheath and chemical and energetic physiology and are natural and self-adjusting. When the crystals are activated by natural sun or moonlight they transfer their vibrational signature into water, creating a safe, effective supportive remedy that can be used in conjunction with, and in complement to, all other healing modalities. They are not meant to replace professional medical advice. They need to be made with only the safest, non-toxic crystals in order to ingest them and can be used with children, pets and plants as well. Externally they can be gently sprayed over the body, in a room, or any space where the energy is needed. They can also be applied to specific body parts or areas needing extra healing or empowerment.

As you consume the elixir over time, the vibrational essences work on the root cause of “dis-ease” to support clearing of the issue that originally created it so that the “dis-ease” can be relieved. They can be made for immediate consumption or can be preserved and used sublingually. The magick is in the choosing, or being chosen by, the most potent crystals for you and the intents and sacredness created around the process, as it is a VERY sacred process indeed and a very special bonding relationship that is created between the crystals and the person helping to alchemically brew and program them. So, the most important part is the crystals from which the essence will be made and there are different ways, as shared, that you can figure this out, including kinesiology testing.

They can be used singly or in cool combinations. Mixing them can really make for some potent elixir magick! This also makes it easier than having to make a lot of separate ones and taking a number of them for the desired results. Again, it’s important they are not water-soluble or toxic – meaning do not contain mercury, arsenic, copper, or other toxic substances. You can look them up in a good mineral guide if in question.

Again, crystal elixirs can be created for immediate consumption, in preserved sublingual form, or into sprays, essential oils, bath, body, or ritual oils, and used for any sacred healing purpose you desire.

I just created a crystal elixir over Sunday’s Aquarius New Moon. First, ritually cleansing my chosen powerhouse blend of crystal friends in a process and then setting them out in the moon and sunlight to take advantage of the powerful igniting energy of this New Moon doorway that is good for planting seeds for the future as an energetic doorway to pull in the things desired to manifest into experience. Aquarius was rocking its unconventionally innovative sparks to the mix. I made a ton of this potent mixture which included: Carnelian, Bloodstone, Citrine, Quartz, Jade, Red and Orange Calcite, Tibetan Turquoise and Rose Quartz. I’ve learned a technique to be able to utilize the energies of toxic crystals so that I can still add them to the mix without adding them to the actual mixture physically, hence leaving out anything harmful in the process. Faery magick always comes in handy 🙂

So, I’m enjoying this elixir, which I’ve shared also with my friend Allison who was in need of similar supportive energy and we are enjoying the process. Everyone is different, so a different dosage may be called for and intuited for each. This was the case for us. I started off drinking a full glass and a half of the unpreserved immediate mixture, at the consulting of my pendulum, and then continue each day with 8 drops, three times a day under the tongue. Allison has been doing 6 drops, five times a day. Allison also made us a crystal spray that we are misting around our spaces as well. Can feel the difference with each dosage and spray. And even in the sacred process of creating the elixir I was in a different space of high vibes as I created them. It is important to be emotionally calm, centered, and in the heart and honoring the relationship with the crystals while going through whatever process with them that feels right. I did a lot of magickal things in my ritual brewing. Fun!

I know that crystal elixirs are exactly the right energy vibrations and modalities to work with right now that reflect and align with me most optimally at this time and are most supportive to the integration process I am in. It’s important to trust your intuition for guidance as to what is best for you. I’m sensing that others would likely gain the same if experiencing similar shifts on their journey. This is why I am looking at creating many more of these to offer others in service, as I feel these would be very supportive. Given my love for and relationship with crystals, this is a natural process for me and one I honor and do not take lightly as a crystal keeper, guardian, and caretaker of the Earth and her children. I look forward to sharing more crystal magick with you.

A Journey, Closure, New Energy, Higher Hearts and Rooted Bodies, Unification and Integration, and a Beautiful Message for 2012


Chamuel - my Master Lemurian Seed Crystal

After literally “just” returning from a whirlwind, very mission-focused trip to the Reno/Tahoe, Nevada area (my previous home of 3 years) I am feeling the energies of everything really taking root. I had returned to Nevada to finalize some business and pick up the last of my things from my parent’s house that they had been storing, which comprised of my original paintings (the In Lak’ech series of potent 5 included) and other items, as well as a few crystals – one of which was my giant Master Lemurian Seed Crystal I had been guided to leave with my mom, a few years ago, to work with and to anchor and grid in Reno. This Master Crystal revealed its name to be Chamuel, as it channels the energy of Archangel Chamuel, the Archangel of Unconditional Love. For information on Archangel Chamuel here is a cool link: http://www.spiritual-encyclopedia.com/archangel-chamuel.html.

I was grateful to have my sweet friend and business partner, Allison, join me for the journey – a perfect reflection of co-supporting and co-creating with no more isolation. It was her first trip there, so it was too bad we weren’t able to do more, but we did complete the mission and having her with me was a valued gift. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a very strange and ominous sky that looked as if lava was flowing in the clouds. None of us had ever seen

Our grounding veggie feast my mom made us the only full day we had in Reno - rosemary potatoes, herbed mushrooms atop roasted veggies and salad with squash...mmmmmmm

anything like it. Dark grayish purple clouds with channels of blood red flowing through. Very odd. Then the next day a huge fire raged not far from my parent’s house that had already taken out 10 homes and was threatening many more. This all preceded the storms that were about to roll in. Many very interesting signs and unfoldings that were definitely sending a message. We were able to enjoy a partial day of some work and then explored the crystal shop, Stone Age, and returned from the 80 mile an hour winds and smoky air, to a cozy home and meal courtesy of mom (pictured left).

But with a little intuited trust, we sped up the trip, changed our plans and grabbed our rental truck a day early (the next morning) to get out while we still could, without getting snowed in. Some of the roads had already been closed due to the fire and snow, but luckily the 80 out of Reno, only met us with torrential rain storms, fog and impending storm clouds. We learned that last evening, after we took advantage of the intuited window, the electricity went out where my parent’s lived and the snow came in as promised. This would not have bode well for us driving a 17 foot truck, where closed roads and chains would have been quite the challenge, if not dangerous.

Some of my new friends from Reno, and old, in their new home on my desk. All attuned to specific energy I am working with currently. And of course my dear Nestor's photo and ashes that are always with me.

But, we did manage to make it to one of my favorite crystal shops to pick up some intended crystal friends to help ground in the new energy we are working with and that I would be utilizing in my new magickal crystal elixirs. (I intend to keep you posted on these, as they are brewing) And I also managed to finalize some business and put to closure things in Reno, to fully move into the new back in California. Since returning, the energy feels very different here at home with my new crystal friends, in listening to where they wanted to go and hanging new paintings in the house that all together make for some really nice energy and Feng Shui. Gaia, my Russian tortoise, and Joy, my lop eared bunny, are both in my room with me today (Gaia only comes in my room on certain occassions, as she’s usually busy working the rest of the house) anchoring in the new energies of our crystal buddies.

It just goes to show you that it is important not to hold to ideas and plans and to always listen to your inner heart guidance, as well as to be in tune with the Earth. Our bodies and the planet mirror each other and this is a time for a return to natural harmony, which begins with flowing with, rather than fighting the shifts within and without.

This is also a time of really grounding and rooting everything that we have been working towards, which equates to bold action, or as one of my favorite things to say is: Do it! We are creating a new template of being and it involves integration – another of my favorite words. (I have several if you haven’t already noticed) Many of us have spent a lot of time developing higher aspects of ourselves (as in our upper chakras) and spirituality, while forgetting our bodies and the need to always be in communion with our base aspects (lower chakras). This is where our heart chakras (or the emerald bridge, as I like to refer to it as) comes into play, in supporting that integration into present and heart-full living with trust, knowingness and honor of your feelings on all levels. The heart chakra lies center of the upper and lower chakras and will be a guiding force of authentic expression and unification within ourselves, with each other, and our relationship with earth and cosmos.

I’m really excited about the new directions, energy and clarification on what is unfolding. It’s always so cool to get loud reiteration of the nudges and things you were already doing or starting to incorporate and be guided towards. It is very empowering to realize your intuitive heart always knows what is best for you, even if you weren’t conscious of the specific understanding or details of why or how it was all taking place.

So a journey comes to closure and a new one begins. I am loving my new crystal friends that will be co-creating with me and I am feeling the click of the pieces of the puzzle all coming together with what I have been focused towards for most of my life. I know others are also feeling it. We’ve been on a journey from one polarity aspect, moving towards another to balance out the imbalance, but we have created another imbalance by staying put in that new polarity with continual focus and in many cases, denial or charge against the other. The journey back to center integration is taking place now rapidly for many of us, as we unify our parts through our higher hearts.

This is a nutshell of information that I have been working with and all of this, which I spent several hours talking about with my brother in the limited time I was in Reno (as we often spend hours doing when together), and which I had been formulating and processing beforehand, was beautifully essence-captured in Lee Harris’ visions for 2012 that my dear friend, Laura Bruno, posted today on her blog. It is so PERFECTLY mirroring of my own channeled feelings and visions that I told Laura I had to repost it.

Some of the key things that stood out from Lee’s sharing that I loved are these:

Trust what you choose. Live as you feel.

this is a year of action

Begin it. Become it. Do it.

…no more isolation

…a new template is needed – become an ambassador of loving silence and space…this creates a shared template

body…planet…mirror…mirror

the heart is always required

a time to be in our highest hearts…when heart, throat and third eye unify so that you speak from your heart and see with spirit

we must remember our base/grounding energy

get into your lower parts of the body – this is very important and will allow those that have worked on the higher parts to bring things together

be bold in what you share

I hope you enjoy reflecting on Lee Harris’ visions:
