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.

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 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.

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.

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”.

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

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.

Contractions and Expansions – Spiraling Fractures Shedding Their Way to the Pearl Within


spiral-shellSo yesterday I shared some thoughts and experiences surrounding the energy of my birthday and one of the things that I mentioned had to do with growth cycles as contractions and expansions within a spiraling experience.

One thing I didn’t mention from my beach adventure, was that I was also gifted a special “spiral” shell that may appear ordinary, but to me was significant and extraordinary. It’s symbolism immediately stood out, the moment my eye caught it in the water my feet were immersed in alongside of it.

I also instantly recognized the lovely synchronicity connecting it to the card my parents had sent me for my birthday, which I mentioned the message that was inscribed within, also in yesterday’s share.

You can see both my shell gift and card above.

Perhaps you have already noted, if you see things like I do, that this shell not only has the same exact shape as the ivory one on the card (just spiraling the opposite way), but that part of the outer brown “shell” encasing had been “shed”, revealing a gorgeous, rainbow-infused, mother of pearl, sparkly inner layer.

And perhaps this already speaks for itself, but in case not, I saw it immediately as the evolutionary growth process of shedding of old structures, illusions, veils, and layers – peeling the onion so to speak – to reveal the vulnerable and valuable “pearl” core essence that is at the “heart” of things.

I love that the shell is “in process”, as it perfectly mirrors my own journey and each of our journeys, constantly and eternally shifting and recreating itself through the wisdom of experience, integration, and learning.

Powerful stuff! And it was another beautiful part of yesterday’s meaningful impact.

But what it also speaks to is something else that had recently happened, and the meaning for me that it has personally. This part of the story may sound a bit odd – you’ll understand as I share it – but as I mentioned yesterday, I simply can’t NOT express my truth and what feels to be wanting to channel through.

First off, let me recap part of yesterday’s post about the above mentioned cycles. I shared:

…These choices and growth cycles come with times of contraction, in order to create huge spurts of expansion. Within the contracting may be pains, facing fears, and feeling the challenges to their depths, but then that naturally comes with the counterparts to all of these, as we partner in the dance of life and make leaps forward, sideways, and ALL ways. And this natural pulsing of going within, then emanates more largely with each cycle, as it begins to remember and experience the fullness of All That Is while still enjoying every unique expression within that Source field…

…I’ve come to be okay with making so-called “mistakes”, stumbling, looking awkward as I grow, or saying something that makes no sense in my spiral efforts to keep moving energy in order to flow into the next phase of my growth expansion and experience.

And while I do this, I also do my best to support others to do the same and remind myself that they are merely spiraling along their own contractions and expansions to embrace more of their own pulsing hearts…

And just a reminder on spiral symbolism:

Symbol of creation, movement, fluidity, surrender/releasing, holistic growth, and awareness of the one within the context of the whole. It reveals the cyclical nature of life, the consciousness of nature from core center expanding outward, and the relationship between unity and multiplicity. It is the limitless spirals that move both “inward towards the Source of creation and eternally outward with Source’s continual self-creation.” In this way, the spiral reflects the contiguous journey home to who you really are and the journey to be one with Source.

And so that brings me to the recent “happenstance”, although I see it as another Divine reflection of evolution on my journey home to who I really am, which took place the day before my birthday, this past Tuesday, February 24th.

I had just returned home the night before and the next day was out doing errands. I mentioned in yesterday’s birthday post how my car was graced by a bunch of little moths that were fluttering about inside and on me. Moth symbolism is about transformation, ease of movement in darkness/shadow, psychic awareness and deeper inner knowing, otherworldliness, dreams, vulnerability, determination, intuition, and faith, to name a few things.

Moths move in blind faith, trusting and relying on their intuition solely, as they are nocturnal. This speaks to living YOUR life by intuition and with faith in yourself and your abilities, but with wise discernment and conscious observance. If you aren’t listening to your intuition, then Moth will remind you to do so.

Avia Venefica shares this:

Even in navigation, when we observe the moth to fly into artificial light or flames, the moth demonstrates its faith and determination.

It is still unproven as to why the moth is driven to light – but the best hypothesis is that the moth navigates by lunar light. In the absence of moonlight, the moth moves to the next best thing: man-made light.

Even at the risk of losing its life, the moth is ever-vigilant in following its path of light. This may also serve as a moral to us to keep our own vigilance, but not fall victim of blind faith.

Here we see a fragile vulnerability in the moth. The moon is her mother, and she will follow her course at all cost. This makes her open to distraction, vulnerable to harm. Here we may find another message to adjust our course as our path indicates, rather than drive forward without heeding important signs along the way.

As a creature of the night, and by her navigational devices, we see the moth is highly influenced by the power of the moon.

This all is very meaningful to me and speaks to the messages I’ve been channeling as important to be embracing and consistently practicing – trusting in myself is “key” and something I can’t afford NOT to do anymore.

The interesting part that stood out most, was the part about “adjusting your course as your path indicates, rather than drive forward”, is exactly what I got from part of the message of my experience. I actually used the same words when describing it to my mom yesterday.

So what took place on my way home from grocery shopping, with moths in my car, was any ordinary kind of thing. Stuff that I had sitting on the passenger seat fell onto the floor and while I was stopped at a red light, I decided to retrieve them.

I did unbuckle my seat belt and leaned to the right at a forward angle to reach the things, retrieving some of them. Determined to get all of it and quickly before the red light turned green, I then thrusted and “drove myself forward” hard and with extended effort, achieving my intent (cause), but not without result (effect).

I heard a small crack, but wasn’t sure what it could be. I just knew my right side hurt a bit, but wasn’t anything horrible and didn’t seem unusual given I had thrust into the side arm of my chair when reaching deeply forward.

Things I could have done differently? Not worry about picking them up until I got home, which was in another 3 minutes or so. Lifting the arm of my chair to make it easier. 🙂

I didn’t think much of it, but noticed a tiny bit of ache on my right that evening, intermittently. The next day was the same – on my birthday. I didn’t notice much of anything, until the evening and then realized that my side was starting to ache a lot more than I thought when I did anything utilizing/straining that area like bending/lifting, sitting/laying a certain way, sneezing, coughing, and laughing even.

Then I started to realize, “I think I’ve cracked my rib/s”.

And today I felt confirmed that this was an actuality, as I had all the symptoms (the sensitivities to things when that part of my right side rib cage is activated) that were exactly like what I experienced when I fractured my tailbone back in 2001 or so. You don’t realize how much every little bone in your body is integral to your day, until it doesn’t function “normally”.

It’s not a big deal, in terms of “bone fracturing”, as it just simply needs its time to heal naturally, but I found it relevant and interesting that it happened the day before my birthday/new cycle (this is a big year for me energetically) and nearly perfectly mirrored the timing of 2 years ago in 2012 when I fractured my left foot twice within two months! The first of those two fractures (a  perfect spiral fracture to my left metatarsal) happened one week, to the day, of my birthday that year and when it healed, I then fractured my left pinky toe.

This makes 5 fractures in my lifetimes (5 is my favorite and magickal number, so let’s see if this is the charm rather than 3 lol!), but I have to say that like with my “aging” process I shared about yesterday, I simply don’t find any problem or negativity from this experience. Rather, and this is part of what may sound odd/weird, I find it to be an amusing and perfect gift.

Now that’s not to say I think that everyone should go around breaking bones. lol! However, for me, it is simply part of my “contracting” and “expansion” that I am experiencing, along with that shedding of old structures – which the bones and skeletal system of our bodies represent – in order to shatter what is no longer necessary so that the new can fully emerge within the regenerative process of integration in a new way and form.

I also know that the sign of Capricorn rules the bones and is connected to the Male or that “Father”principle, if you may. So shattering this would be moving through the processing of “old and traditional, out-moded, and over-used Male energy, and working at integrating the Divine Male into harmonious dance within.

And being that I had just recently gotten a sacred and potent tattoo on my right arm, to help empower and integrate this “new” Male energy (as your right side of the body is connected to your left/male oriented side of the brain), it wasn’t surprising that some shifts would be taking place both literally/physically and symbolically/energetically.

I also see bones in what may seem to be an interesting way, which is something new I’ve explored in the last couple of years since my last fractures. I have mixed feelings on needing to get my bones stronger, so they don’t crack so easily, as while on one hand I believe in supporting our bodies to be strong (which I am mindful of in the food and nutrient, exercise that works for me, and lifestyle choices I make daily), I also am seeing these “rigid” structures – represented by bones – in a productive light of breaking down to expand, transmute, and regenerate into something new and more representative of the freeness we are manifesting into.

They need to be strong, but flexible, and not so rigid and “dense” and that may be about the restructuring of DNA and molecular patterning that we are experiencing and will continue to, as we are shifting into new and luminous human beings.

It immediately reminds me of how we look and form like a fish when in the womb, but then go on to have more dense bones and skeletal systems than fish, reptiles, and sharks, which are more flexible. Sharks, and some fish, in fact have skeletons made of cartilage and are known as cartilaginous.

Now I know we aren’t living in the ocean – although that sounds like a fun plan to this Pisces fish 😉 – however there’s an interesting evolutionary process here that indicates differences between flexibility and rigidity of the different species. And we aren’t even talking about beings “not of this world”.

I’m no scientist, doctor, or evolutionary expert, however I do know that change is happening and this includes our body structures that will reflect the shifts we are making on levels of consciousness and that are taking place with transmutational evolution, as we are expanding that consciousness.

Fun stuff! And needless to say, I have a cracked rib or two, but fully am delving into the messaging and symbolism of this experience, feeling the potency of the shifts I have been making, while heeding that reminding advice to “adjust my path based on the intuitive and discerning messaging I’ve been receiving, rather than drive forward quickly” – even if I can see the target clearly and know I can achieve it, as it simply may not be the result that I ultimately want and may not be for the highest and most harmonious good of all concerned.

I LOVE how everything we need to know is right here (inside of us and reflected all around us), if we truly believe and open our eyes, listen, embrace it, and put it to active practice.

This rib fracture is merely a contraction to expansion and part of the spiraling cycle of natural growing pains that do not need to be fueled with negativity, sympathy, sorrow, dwelling, anger, frustration, or anything else of that nature. It simply needs to be surrendered into, as the seasonal change that has its own wisdom and divine unfolding.

An accident? No. Could it have been avoided? Sure. However, if the totality of learning that was received in this experience wasn’t integrated, then it was inevitable something else would take place at some unknown time.

I’m grateful to have it be as such, and I embrace the vulnerability that is being revealed, like that mother of pearl like core essence of the shell I found, as I shatter, shift, and shed each old layer and “make leaps forward, sideways, and  ALL ways.”

A reminding bone, rather than a thorn, in my side, helping to reveal the pearl of wisdom and wholeness within.

I told you this may sound a bit odd, but then I never claimed to be anything but. 😉
