“The Illuminator” Magick Crystal Wand


IMG_20170803_122150038.jpg

I finally had time to post this commissioned Magick Crystal Wand after a busy time of late and it felt like a perfect one to share as closure to these custom pieces, for now, and the collective energy at large. Standing at exactly 21 inches – the tallest of all to date, but femininely intricate and graceful in its presence – I call this one “The Illuminator”, as it brings to light and clarity the truths within to create alchemy. There is a white feather flame at top that helps one journey through the complex layers and worlds of both Shadow and Light, to transmute them. In some way you could also call it the “Shadow Walker” or “Transmuter” – potent indeed.

I’ll include all the feathers and crystals that have been woven and channeled into this Magick Crystal Wand below, but here are some generals about the wand’s energy.

IMG_20170803_121929670.jpg

Although it walks the worlds of both Light and Shadow, overall it carries an essence of lightness and the message that one’s journey can be a graceful one. This wand has the most feathers of any to date I’ve created – 14 total – which mirrors its new guardian who walks with birds always and has many bird spirit guides supporting her journey. She and I mirror many synchronicities with this and share dream journeying with our bird friends and more.

I love the white feather flame at top that really sets the tone of energy for the entire wand being a journey of illumination and carried on the wings of grace. They come together, focusing this energy, at the wand’s top Tibetan Quartz Crystal that very delicately sits atop the natural points of the wood that hold it like delicate Faery fingers.

There is also a Tibetan Quartz down below as well….”as above so below.” They also compliment one another, as the top one is clear throughout except for the darker area (characteristic of a Tibetan Quartz) at the bottom, and the bottom double terminated one is mostly dark with a couple of areas that are light (including its top point).

Both demonstrating that Light and Dark are both present in everything.

I also continue with the theme of “as above so below” with the two Amethyst that sit both at top and bottom – spiritual enlightenment accessed and anchored through both journeys of Light and Dark. The top one has a spiral vortex emanating out in gold wire (the wire of choice used throughout this creation) and the bottom one is criss-crossed with an anchoring “x” of gold wire below.

There are actually 7 spirals down the shaft in total – representing the 7 Charkras – some tiny/small and others larger.

Below the top Amethyst there is then about 3 inches of clear Quartz and Turquoise “rain” I’ve created to mirror the energy of a dream its guardian had about Feather rain, but also to add a mirroring and both Water and Air elements for the integration and transmutation process at the heart of healing.

The energy is then anchored at the bottom with a much larger, triangular Turquoise with large spiral of gold below it.

The wood of this wand is light in color to continue with that “lightness” theme and overall there is much intricacy in the design.

I feel like the wand itself at any moment can take to flight with all of the bird energy, and in general really feels as though you can “rise above” things from a different perspective on the “wings” of its energy.

The hanging Feathers are floating on Robin’s Egg Blue satin cording (to match the Turquoise) wrapped in gold wire.

Another stunning Being I’m honored to have channeled into manifestation.

IMG_20170803_122025209.jpg

Here are the Feather and Crystal energies included:

Feathers:

5 White Goose Feathers at top to create the Feather Flame (supplied by me)– The Goose and its feathers embody loyalty, forging ahead with bravery and confidence, teamwork and comradery, protection, clear communication, determination, dedication, fellowship, fidelity, fertility, the balance of knowing when to lead or follow, compassionate keepers of the community and embody the sacred circle and sanctity of the cycles of life, astute navigation, discernment of life path and choices, teamwork, protection, and committed responsibility. Geese never leave one of their own behind for any reason. They will stay with the sick and injured until they are either well again, or to support them as they transition.

2 Osprey Feathers (1 mostly white with faint touches of tan at top at the front of the Goose Feather Flame and 1 white and brown at the bottom laying on top of the Seagull feather – both supplied by new guardian) – mastering the conscious and unconscious. Osprey are also symbols of the Sun (solar worship), royalty, illumination, visionary power, sovereignty, vigilance, Egyptian symbol of the soul, honing the senses, precise timing, and keen sight to see through illusions and to hunt in the waters of emotion. For more on Osprey please see Mastering the Conscious & Unconscious

3 Seagull Feathers (2 Norwegian Seagull Feathers supplied by its guardian – the big dark and light ones at back – and 1 lovely white and brown mottled one at bottom that I found, under the Osprey Feather) – These feathers bring the winds of new heart freedom, personal authentic power, creative self expression, and joyous new perspective to breathe in, ride, and navigate these constantly fluctuating energy streams with perseverance and vision to more clearly see the opportunity and purpose within everything.

Juvenile Hawk Feather hanging from right on top of Pigeon Feather (both supplied by me) –  Awareness, perspective, perseverance, endurance, sharp insight, truth, visionary power, guardianship, strength, initiative, decisiveness, creativity, messenger (often of change), caution, maneuvering, leadership. Hawk’s meaning teaches us to be observant and to pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don’t use, a blessing for which we haven’t expressed gratitude, or a message from the universe.  The hawk has keen eyesight, it is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk awakens vision and inspires us to a creative life purpose.

Black with Gray tip (love that symbolism) Pigeon Feather (from the Dove family) hanging on right under Juvenile Hawk Feather (both supplied by me) – Pigeon and Dove both carry the same symbolism of peace and love, but also carry clear vision and dream messages that provide glimpses into things coming and confirm you are “on path”, divinity at work, blessings coming, opening mind and heart, healing, gentle self-nurturing, surrender and release, embrace the integrity of your natural self and purity of your creative spirit to nurture imagination and follow your own true path, as you cultivate hope for the new. The “between times,” but also heralds how the physical and spiritual are more rapidly merging with the thinning of veils that arrive with your willingness to see more clearly.

Raven Feather (supplied by new guardian) hanging on left under Green Hahns Macaw Feather (supplied by me via a friend’s Macaw) – deep mystery, intelligence, wisdom, knowledge, knowing, cunning, trickster, curiosity, truth revealing, creativity, intuition, insight, unconventional, unpredictable transformation, magick, shape-shifting….

Green Hahns Macaw Feather (supplied by me via a friend’s Macaw) hanging on left on top of Raven Feather –  wise teacher of the power of your words, communication, how to express your truth, voice of the Cosmos and your inner voice, clarity, truth, reflection, manifestation, spell-work, color magick, the exotic, observation…..green carrying some fun and lightness and bringing the energy of the Heart Chakra and Heart’s Joy, as well as Nature and Earth harmony

Crystals:

2 Tibetan Quartz – help to live a life of sacredness and focus energy to the origin of things to be drawn out and healed. 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. To learn more about Tibetan Quartz please visit my article: “OM” Vibration Tibetan Quartz ~ Perfect Grounding with Expansion Crystal

Multiple Clear Quartz – master healer, harmony, clarity, supports psychic abilities, healing, amplifies energy and thought, as well as effects of other crystals, releases, stores, absorbs, regulates energy, draws away negative energy, neutralizes, balances, revitalizes, cleanses, enhances, deep soul cleanser, etc.

2 Amethyst – Increases nobility, spiritual awareness, opens crown, psychic abilities, inner peace and healing, calmness, healing of body, mind and soul, positive transformation, protection, meditation, balance, relieve stress, communication, opens intuition, supports sobriety, helps with disorders, enhances memory, focus, and motivation

Multiple Turquoise – Purification, serenity, protection, wisdom, balance, strength, friendship, love, positive thinking, sensitivity, creative self-expression, balances and aligns chakras, calming, healing, communication.

Faery Shamanic Dream Wand


IMG_20170721_104006192.jpg

Standing at 13 inches, this Faery Shamanic Dream Wand is one of the newest in the Magick Crystal Wand collection I’ve been channeling as commissions. As mentioned in the previous post about the Sky Spirit Shaman Magick Crystal Wand, I’m not posting all of the creations, but the ones I feel might speak to others energetically in a collective way. This is another incredibly special being that carries some potent energy, is quite substantial in design and weight even though so ethereal in essence, and reminds me of a Faery Queen’s wand. I’m so loving all of these inspired creations that wouldn’t be manifesting without the combined partnering of energies with their new guardians.

IMG_20170721_103607222IMG_20170721_103725416.jpg

I think the energy of this beauty speaks for itself, but will share a bit of what elements are woven into it to bring it all about, which includes a gorgeous, thick light wood wand, 10 Golden Ray Selenite Blossom petals, 1 Amethyst focal point, rose gold wire throughout wrapped in an etheric/cosmic web and ending in spiral vortexes/portals extending out in emanation from each of the 4 corners/Amethysts, a smaller spiral at base of the 11 clear Quartz point mirrors, antique rose satin cording around shaft draping down to the 3 extremely magickal, silver goose feathers, and 8 female mallard feathers around the shaft (for a total of 11 feathers), just below the Quartz.

IMG_20170721_103530008

It has such an exquisite, Sacred Feminine energy!

IMG_20170721_103817072.jpg

 

 

Before sending it off on Monday I will be infusing extra Reiki, Cosmic intentions, and sound into its frequency.

IMG_20170721_103948756

As always, it is my intention to have these stay in a natural beauty essence, as if fashioned by the Forest Faeries themselves.

IMG_20170721_103952401

Here is a breakdown of elements included below.

Feathers:

3 Silver Goose Feathers – The Goose and its feathers embody loyalty, forging ahead with bravery and confidence, teamwork and comradery, protection, clear communication, determination, dedication, fellowship, fidelity, fertility, the balance of knowing when to lead or follow, compassionate keepers of the community and embody the sacred circle and sanctity of the cycles of life, astute navigation, discernment of life path and choices, teamwork, protection, and committed responsibility. Geese never leave one of their own behind for any reason. They will stay with the sick and injured until they are either well again, or to support them as they transition.

8 Female Mallard Feathers – communication, letting go, strong sense of knowing, awareness, preparation, speaking your truth, intuition, finding your flow, not settling, all about water elements, creating a sacred sanctuary nest that soothes your soul, graceful self confidence, connection to ancient ancestor wisdom, luck – preparation meets opportunity, the power of being in the now moment, being at peace, letting it be, having the resources to navigate your life, taking notice of your surroundings to see the new opportunities being offered, being ready to move forward swiftly to embrace opportunities presented and to succeed with your goals, exploring your emotions and clearly navigating them so you can release what no longer serves.

Crystals:

11 Clear Quartz – master healer, harmony, clarity, supports psychic abilities, healing, amplifies energy and thought, as well as effects of other crystals, releases, stores, absorbs, regulates energy, draws away negative energy, neutralizes, balances, revitalizes, cleanses, enhances, deep soul cleanser, etc.

5 Amethysts – Increases nobility, spiritual awareness, opens crown, psychic abilities, inner peace and healing, calmness, healing of body, mind and soul, positive transformation, protection, meditation, balance, relieve stress, communication, opens intuition, supports sobriety, helps with disorders, enhances memory, focus, and motivation.

10 Golden Ray Selenite Blossom Petals – powerful, beautiful, and high vibrational Crystals that have come to light calling in the highest frequency of white light and the Golden Ray of Buddha, some say, storing Ancient Priestess teachings and can be used for a variety of metaphysical purposes – making them excellent for any healing environment. It connects to the Solar Plexus, Third Eye, Heart, and Crown Chakras, helping to integrate, open, and activate them. This supports us in creatively manifesting what is from our heart, directing our will in a loving, joyful manner. We are then able to create our reality based on intention, trust, and joyful wisdom. It helps you to become attuned to, and harmonized with, your soul purpose for this lifetime. Focuses are on joy, manifestation, and creation/creative energies and are really good for digestive issues and addictions, as the dis-ease of one’s will.

I wonder if her new guardian and co-creator will recognize the energy belonging to her for the journey ahead when she reads this post.

Bird Medicine Feather Gifts


feathers

The special feather gifts continue…yesterday’s Bird Medicine blessings from Crystal Cove.

Feathers are strongly connected to the spiritual realm.

I love the contrast of these two.

Brown feathers symbolize grounding, stability, respect, home, earth connection, grounded positivity, and balance.

Black feathers symbolize mystical wisdom, spiritual initiation, angelic protection, and magick within you to harness. They also herald change and that a transition on a soul level is happening.

Black mixed with brown, as mine above, is balance between your physical and spiritual life.

The little bit of white at the bottom of it ties in the white feather, but also adds hope and harmony to the mix.

White feathers symbolize innocence and purity, or a fresh start – purification. Also hope, peace, blessing of the Moon. White feathers are also thought to be signs from the angels, but feathers in general are known to message you in general that your angels are near.

Feathers show up as reminders to pay attention and heighten our awareness to what is going on in our life at that moment, our thoughts, questions, feelings….they are being reiterated and validated, as well as supported with opportunities.

They carry the energy of light-hearted freedom, change, truth, lightness, clarity, speed, flight, ascensions, communication with Spirit, celestial wisdom, honor, and respect.

Native Americans believe that feathers that fall to the Earth are purposeful gifts from the sky, the trees, and the sea depending on the bird from which it comes. They revere birds as spirit guides and bringers of messages that walk through different stages of life with a person, while teaching, guiding, and protecting them.

To the Egyptians, they were symbolic of sky gods and the goddess Ma’at was said to weigh the hearts of people who have just passed in the underworld against the weight of a feather to determine the worthiness of his or her soul.

Melanie Beckler, an internationally acclaimed best-selling author, channel, and founder of http://www.Ask-Angels.com shares:

“The Egyptians believed feathers to be a symbol of Ma’at, the goddess of truth, justice, and order. Native American Chiefs wore feathers in their head-dresses to represent their communication with the spirit world, and believed finding feathers was a sign of new beginnings and rebirth from spirit. Celtic Druids wore ornately feathered robes to transcend the physical plane and gain celestial knowledge from the realms of spirit. In the Bible, feathers metaphorically represent loving care and protection and as a common dream symbol, feathers signify the ability to freely move throughout life. Feathers can also represent a fresh start in a spiritual sense, as well as truth, speed, love, lightness, and flight.”

Crystalline Enchantment ~ Crystal Guardians Come Together


workshop

The crystal guardians and their banana stand-in….our dear friend Lynne Day, whom you’ve met before in an interview I did of her and is also the sweet soul that I announced is gifting Reiki sessions toward the Nature Immersion Challenge, was so sad to not be able to join that I promised my banana (which she shares a pair to) would be center of class and this is the photo we took to send her some love!

 

What a week and weekend it was. I was immersed in crystalline energy and to say it was potent is an understatement. So many lovely things took place this week that have my heart in overflow.

And in contrast, there have also been some very intense things in the collective, as well as personal fields of experience.

feathers

Feather pair from Alaska

On top of that, there has been a lot of “twin energy” around recently alongside the powerful things taking place. This has been showing up a lot actually since my trip to Alaska. I remember there I found these two white feathers side by side that were a perfect matching and mirroring pair.

shell

Shell I found Friday afternoon

The weekend after my return I found a large spiral shell on the beach – one I’ve never seen here before. It had its own symbolism, but took on another layer when Friday at the same beach I found its counterpart. More on that later.

angel feathers

Angelic feather pair from the beach yesterday

And yesterday at the beach I found another pair of twin white feathers, however these were very different. The first pair were more solid, very thick and strong…The second pair are so ethereal, so translucent, literally feel like liquid silk, and not only can you not feel them in your hand or between your fingers, but it is as if they are enchanted and were so sparkly white that it truly was as if they’d fallen from an angel.

With these white feathers it wasn’t as important to me from which bird they came, as it was the appearance of two nearly identical feathers being found as a pair, side by side and their quality that meant something special to me. And there has been more to this “twin energy” in dreams, experiences…all of it pointing to an integration of my own dual parts into greater wholeness, as well as speaking to an experience perhaps taking place that I have been feeling.

All of it is just so magickal to me and framed the magick of this weekend.

crystal workshop

Some of the crystals from workshop

This past Saturday several of us gathered for the Crystal Magick and the Journey Within workshop, which was an incredible experience. All week leading up to it the energy had been building and I could feel myself emanating this fire inside that had me feeling like a furnace, just like with Reiki. I’m usually a cold person except for when I am working with things energetically, downloading, channeling, or in a very high-vibed place. There had been other enhancements to the week, but crystals definitely seemed to be the theme all around.

It was also this week, on the Full Moon Eclipse that a very significant crystal in my life had arrived at its new and dear keeper’s home. I hadn’t planned this, but it happened nonetheless. Love how stuff like that unfolds. It also happens to carry the “twin energy” and so there was the theme again.

But the workshop came together so beautifully. Always the perfect group shows up for each and it’s like a game of energetic chess that plays out to create the perfect fusion of energy. There were 5 other lovely souls that were originally joining in place of some of the people that ended up being there, but as timing and energy needs to align, so it did once again.

I know that these beautiful souls that could not make this workshop, will come together with their perfect soul group in a future workshop.

And for this one, it appears that it was meant to be a reunion of some of the core group we had together at the Reiki Renewal Retreat in March of this year over the Equinox.

Literally, only a couple of days before, I didn’t know that one of these lovelies was coming and then flew in at the last minute to finalize our group energy dynamic.

The way things miraculously worked out, I was able to host her and it all just kept turning into this amazing cohesiveness.

day before workshop

Yasmin (left) and me (right) at beach

I also miraculously finished my work and preparations before she arrived, which enabled us to share another reunion of me taking her to Crystal Cove where we had gone with the group on the March Retreat. I felt this would be the perfect way to ground, refresh, and invigorate for the long and energetic experience of the following day.

On our walk I found the counterpart spiral shell I made mention of before. I’d only seen the very tip – about half an inch – peeking out of the sand, but I just knew what was buried below. I went and dug it up and found my treasure. She was amazed by my “eagle eye”.

shells

Male and female shell pair. The left is the one I found upon return from Alaska. Right is from Friday

This shell now sits next to its partner on my altar shelf. Just so beautiful!

The next day the sweet surprise for the others came when they saw her there, as I hadn’t shared with them who was coming from out of town. And so it was a lovely time for all.

Not to mention a fully packed day!! We immersed in crystal magick from 9 am – after 6 pm, then some further discussions taking us through to about 7 pm, followed by dinner to ground all that sweet enchanted and expansive energy.

I can’t even begin to explain how powerful and shifting this day was, or how it all felt and what was taking place in the seen and unseen ways. Not only did we fully discuss 55 pages worth of material etched in my heart to share with each of these beautiful souls, but we journeyed to places that will continue to awaken, activate, and remind each of who they really are, long after our day together. Much of this happens in layered and deep ways, so not all of it is made aware of at onset, will percolate, and continue to evolve.crystals

To top it off, the workshop was co-facilitated by my partner, Joy (my rabbit companion and crystal expert), who made her first return appearance in one of my workshops since over a year! I had a feeling the crystals would call her.

And what a facilitator she was, holding the space, helping to channel with me, supporting everyone, and sending energy to all. She never left the room once. She had actually been in the room all week with me preparing it energetically. And from onset until we left the room for dinner, did she remain. Upon return, during in-depth connecting with my guest, she came to support that as well moving between both of us and then keeping watch, as well as monitoring the energy in the room, following us into my office later and not wanting my guest to go off to bed. 🙂 She was really enjoying her role on this day.

I can’t tell you how grateful and full of reverence I was for her, the crystals, and each of these courageous souls.joy

During workshop, Steve and I discovered we both had magickal Amethysts with hexagon sacred geometry – his cut into a hexagon and mine with an ethereal hexagon in dimensional layers inside of it. We all received that the two crystals wanted to connect, to create a channel for he and I to communicate, as well as to activate each of the crystals. So I went to get my sphere’s turtle stand and of course it fit perfectly on top of his crystal.

telepathy2We had a chance to do a couple of rounds of telepathic exercises, which alongside crystal meditation, and crystal Reiki attunements, proved to really heat things up and provide some first experiences for several that reiterated their powerful gifts.telepathy

ameythyst hexagon love

The room was filled with Elementals and Cosmic friends. Tons of downloading was taking place. And an alchemical transmutation was taking effect. Everyone was receiving a natural Crystal Attunement and a lot of love.crystal skull

Crystalline energy was abound and in a room full of Crystal Guardians, it made me so soulfully happy and fulfilled to feel the deepening of our relationship with these Crystal Beings, ourselves, with each other, Earth, and Cosmos.

I told each of them how I could see as we talked, their Priest and Priestess selves and how we’d done this before together. I wanted them to see themselves and each other in this light.

And today I was able to spend some time with another beautiful and dear friend of mine taking a walk with her and her sweet dog by the Marina. I had to giggle to myself when I saw that nearly every street around the circular walk of the island was named after a crystal.

Below is a favorite song I’ve been listening to often in the past month. Coupled with the most enchanting images, this truly captures the essence of what our day on Saturday was energetically like and what was all around us.

Feeling full of love and gratitude.

Wolf Trinity Sacred Tattoo Design


Sacred Tattoo DesignI always enjoy the process of creating sacred tattoo designs with people and this latest one was nothing short of sheer pleasure to channel.

The energy is really such a pure essence of gentle, but powerful strength that comes from the courage of heart within.

The focal energy was my client’s Wolf Guardian and Spirit Walker, but then, as always, other energies come into play after I feel into things and what has been spoken and unspoken within the sharing between us.

This brought on the energy of 3 or the Trinity to incorporate through the Triple Goddess energy of Maiden, Mother, Crone, as aspects of my client through her Wolf Guide. They also tie into the Moon phases, which she is also very linked to, as well as symbolize Earth, Underworld and Heavens. These represent parts she is bringing together and integrating, as well as bringing forth in her service role in the world.

These parts are being honored as unique aspects, but also as a synergy of the union together they create and are needed to create – so each Wolf has her own individual strength within their own respect of solitude, but woven together in the web of life, as well as the pack they run in.

The upper left is the Maiden aspect depicted as a younger white Wolf pup representing a Star Child, hence wearing American Indian markings on her face of a shooting star around her eye that merge into feathers almost like a love tear drop (Earth and Cosmos connected – Star Child come to Earth). She is a free-spirit, in tune with her self-expression, creative wonder, exuberant joy, innocence, enchantment, new ideas and enthusiasm, and represents new beginnings and fresh perspectives. Her creativity also shown by her star marking.

To the upper right is the Mother aspect depicted by the mature Wolf howling at the Moon. She is in tune with the cycles of life, has come into her own, connected with her authenticity she is voicing passionately through clarity of her voice and what she has to communicate, has a soulful connection from her core that she is moving through her in service. She is about abundance, growth, gaining of knowledge and fulfillment on all levels.

And at the bottom, anchoring the three is the Crone aspect depicted by the older white Wolf. She represents wisdom, centeredness, balance, harmony from within, inner peace, powerful presence, knowingness, complete faith and truth, stillness of heart, shadow/darkness embraced. Interwoven in her beautiful bushy flowing tail is the word “trust” integrated as her fur.

At top is a Crescent Moon with parting thin veils of clouds that turn into feathers. To the right, almost looking like a bird emerging, and below that almost like a figure of a person or angel that becomes the larger feather that ends at a spiral tip. The feathers for freedom and flow. The clouds are parting to reveal clarity from the illusions of the veil and embracing the shadow revealed.

At center, an ethereal/cosmic star (felt Faery as well) of enlightenment with hexagon symbolism of soulful integration and all that the number 6 symbolism stands for – truth, union, harmony, balance, equality, integration, perfection, lovers, conjoining, communication, dependability, reliability.

I then dusted some ethereal feathers throughout that are floating/gliding down from the heavens with little stars dusted throughout and American Indian organic shapes into a spiral.

It’s just one of those pieces that moves your heart. At least, I know it did for me and I so flowed in enjoying to bring this energy to life for a special soul. ❤
