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.
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.
Here are the Feather and Crystal energies included:
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
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.

As I sit here watching the snow gently fall, creating magick all around me, I am in gratitude of the cycles and seasons of life that have brought me to this very moment. I’m also in awe of the perfection of this sweetness falling from the heavens like powdered sugar, in perfect creation of what will be a potent and memorable day. This Winter Solstice has been chosen by my beloved Cosmo as the day to spread some of his ashes upon the lake to join in alchemy with Joy’s and Nestor’s, igniting a sacred wave of shifts abound.
Other things are also taking place today and ending/beginning, so I will be reflecting upon and adding energy to the magickal brew a-stirring.
Today marks another new cycle and change of seasons as we welcome in the Winter Solstice (for the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice for the Southern Hemisphere). This brings the end of the old year’s cycle, as we begin anew, and provides a supportive time to make leaps in consciousness by moving within to shine your light, as the light lessens on this shortest day/longest night of the year (or longest day of the year for you Southern Hemisphere folks).
We’ve been continuing to clear in preparation for new and more natural ways of living from our highest and likely you’ve been experiencing heightened awareness of all things in your life through varying ways of experiencing these, relative to each, and coming to feel more self alignment and merging taking place.
This is creating an upsurge of excitement, as you feel the energy field welcoming you into your truth more than ever.
Where ever you are in your journey, is perfect, and likely you have that sense, even if moving through the “ick” still, that there’s something different this time in the experience.
I simply would encourage you to let go, do what ever you can to maintain your own inner balance and harmony so that you can vibrate at your own relaxed and natural personal frequency, and compassionately realize that you are different than everyone else and therefore you only need to exercise your own sovereign free will and lovingly allow them to do the same.
More and more you will be experiencing, embodying, and emanating so much more light, which is not to be feared, but to be celebrated.
Through this Winter Solstice “gateway” you can be mindful of this turn of seasons to be more soul driven and may feel called to take some moments to honor this flowing change of life cycles. Perhaps creating a special sacred space or ritual act to honor the “return of light” that this Solstice is reminding us.
Candles and crystals come to mind when I think of ways you might symbolically create that space, or perhaps simply envisioning and imagining (imagination is a powerful tool) the light and inner fire of your heart and soul expanding and filling your entire body and emanating out and joining with the light of our Great Central Sun, allowing yourself to take up more space and be who you really are.
Winter Solstice provides a supportive time to honor the remembrance of light that you are, for making those leaps in consciousness by moving within to shine your own light, and to “see the light” even when things get dark and you’re unsure of what to do, where to go, or even how to think or feel.
There is so much potential available to each of you and it is up to each individual how you choose to embrace this or not. It’s an opportunity to completely reinvent yourself and your life and to do things more differently than ever before, which will take the courage of being willing to shine your light even if no one else around you is.
Childhood memories of myself as a ballerina and the passion I expressed through me with dance brings depth to the meaning of today’s “rebirthing of the Light” and life and spirit.
We all have the opportunity to courageously be born again like a seed of light, as we deepen into the stillness of the dark.
There is much hope and promise within remembering the heart of who I am and what was alive within me as a child. Some of what I/we may have forgotten.
There’s an integration that takes place and frees me even more when I reclaim those parts of my essence.
What this means to me is that what ever it is I do take action to bring forth in my life, the little girl within me will be dancing her heart out while doing it, as the dream is the reality I choose to live and nothing less than that.
Wishing you a liberating and enlightening Winter Solstice.
May your courage deepen and the creative impetus of transformation shine brightly within you.
This year I’ve been enjoying gifting myself Christmas gifts both in tangible and symbolic form, as gratitude for the courage I’ve embraced to be myself in a world that challenges that and with love for all the dramatic changes I honored and surrendered to when I didn’t know, and still might not fully, what that would create for my life. Celebrating the winding, wild road that has gotten me here and giving myself the peace of heart to just be me.
And as I celebrate my own light, I celebrate yours, as we ignite the sacred spark of being together.
We are both of the dark and the light…we are their alchemical transmutation. When we remember and walk responsibly through the shadow of our truth, we recognize and embody the brilliance of our creative power.
We often are focused on searching for the light, and yet the mysterious magnitude and beauty is in walking the recognition of our complexity within the cosmic abyss of our consciousness in totality.
Every time I see amazing displays of light around me and the environment I find myself in, I realize it is only because I am embracing the dance with shadow and understanding its immeasurable potential, that these experiences and appearances are possible.
And in return, they are reflecting that message if in fact we don’t realize this.
It is how we responsibly utilize these energies that becomes the focus and creates the challenge we are here to harness with intentful awareness every step of the way so as not to duplicate recurrences of our past, but to align us with future expansive probabilities through the presence of all-encompassing consciousness now.
“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” ~Francis Bacon
To go in the dark with a light is to know
To know the dark, go dark. Go without
and find that the dark, too, blooms and
and is traveled by dark feet and dark
This felt like a perfect “farewell for now” message to leave you with, as I will be offline for an unknown time, beginning tomorrow.
This is a short, but on point share from Lee Harris on the dance with duality that many struggle with.
There’s something about experiencing the love story between light and trees that makes your heart flutter.
Such an exquisite dance reminds us of the way in which our own bodies are dancing at the edge of both nature and the ethereal, reflecting our innate grace.
Just like sound, which I recently shared about in my post “The Power of Sound ~ The Power of Your Song,” color and light therapy also emits frequencies, or vibrations, that can have many healing benefits. Read on to learn a little about color therapy and its effects.
Can color heal the nervous system? Do different hues have the ability to bring health to the body through the gateway of the eyes?
The answer to these questions is, amazingly, yes. Optometric phototherapy, which heavily relies upon the use of color, has been proven to deliver results to patients. This means that color is not only beautiful, but is also medically useful.
What Is Optometric Phototherapy? How Does It Work?
Syntonics, also known as optometric phototherapy or colored light therapy, is a form of therapy that has been studied formally for over 70 years. According to the College of Syntonic Optometry, syntonics “is the branch of ocular science dealing with the application of selected light frequencies through the eyes.”
To understand syntonics, you must first understand color. Color is not just something lovely to look at; it actually emits physical frequencies, or vibrations. Different colors emit different frequencies…
