    Taking flight…


    2021 - 06.04

    The sun shines on a couple of trees in the forest.

    I am at a point in my life where I seek to keep my spirit and heart engaged in every aspect of my life. This is not something that is easy to do. I believe that by tying them together for myself, I will be able to rise above previous conditioning and move forward in my life with compassion and kindness being the primary motivator for my actions and reactions. Part of that is being kind to myself as well…what does that mean? It means that I get to expand my spirit and spark my creativity because these things are me taking care of myself and my own light.

    Yes, that clears things up for you, doesn’t it? I didn’t think so either, it sounds like a collection of buzzwords without meaning but I can assure you that there is meaning, for me. For the last nine months, I have been using a pathworking system that I created to fuse together all the tools I have at my disposal. In this system, I pull together elements of tarot, lithomancy, crystal healing, and astrology and set up a method of usage that incorporates monthly, weekly, and daily (if you choose) reflection points. It is in the combination of usage that you find you can begin truly healing and creating harmonic energy in your life.

    Sounds interesting…but still not a lot of detail. I am working on writing the full details of the system and plan to release it with kits available for adding later this year if all goes as planned. My goals are simple to give myself and others the tools they can use (and modify) to make their lives better. You can begin healing yourself and find greater happiness which can lead to better prosperity and joy. Like anything, there are no guarantees but I have been working with this for a while now and am finding my emotional and spiritual self-healing as my ability to communicate what I need grows so too does my joy as I receive what I need.

    Perception leads the way to Love…


    2021 - 06.02

    Last month I was immersed in perception. It was a deep dive into what shapes my reality. It called for me to look at how my senses perceived the world around me and to continue the work of raising my vibration as I adjusted my perceptions and emotions throughout May. Heading into June my card for this month is…Love.

    Love is one of the reasons for being. We seek to experience love in its many forms, some of them are incredibly complex where others as easy as breathing. Love is a beautiful and amazing thing that is more than just an emotion, it is what drives us to improve, it pushes our boundaries into the space where real magick happens.

    With this card showing up for my monthly forecast into the energy of June I can look at the whole meaning of this card. Love is multifaceted and one of those facets includes how I love myself and treat myself. To start out this month of ‘love,’ I am going to begin with SELF-LOVE. I have not always had the best view of myself and occasionally I fall into old habits with negative self-talk. My challenge for this month is to continue to rise above previous mental landscapes and allow myself to feel true love for myself. This week will be about self-care and the things I don’t do for myself but should (and can) do. Each week will carry a different theme but this week’s theme is run by the Two of Earth. This is bringing a little bit of balance to the work and play, caring for my needs and the requirements of others I serve as well. I will be working within myself and with others to spread kindness and compassion from myself to myself and then others through interactions as they occur. Yes, I can see this becoming a lovely and compassionate month.

    Card of the week…Ace of Water


    2021 - 05.17

    Ace of Water - DreamThe Ace of water symbolizes the beginning of a new relationship. The excitement and movement. You are being asked to allow your desire and passion to carry you aong. Trust in that you will go where you need when you are needed. Do not fight against the flow, surrender to it and see where it takes you.

    The timing of this card is nothing short of amazing. I drew this card the morning of rekindling a relationship with a long-time friend. It was the first time we have spoken via telephone in decades. We have both been through a great deal but I look at this as an opportunity to find common ground together again and maybe even help each other heal through the traumas we have been through since the last time we were talking.

    It’s really quite incredible when I think about how the timing lines up with my own healing process and working towards a more heart-centered life. I walk with forgiveness, compassion, and light in my heart and welcome all that will serve my path, allow my light to be utilized while aiding in healing.

    A little lithomancy message for the week…


    2021 - 05.11

    This week I am focusing on the stones clustered together in an unusual and unlikely way. I will unpack the rest of the grid throughout the week but today I am focusing here. The message is clear to me that I need to work with my energy and conserve a bit…let’s look at some of the details and how they fit together.

    Cluster

    Five crystals clustered on my lithomancy mat into an interesting pattern.

    Blessings + New Beginnings: the keywords here are more obvious. Watch for the messages as they contain blessings that are available for your manifestations. New beginnings or continued blessings for those you already began.

    • Ruby in zoisite: This stone increases our awareness of individuality while maintaining our connection to humanity. This is a stone of empathy and can further help us amplify our energy bodies into a clear and harmonic state.
    • Blue Tiger Eye: As an exceptionally soothing stone, blue tiger eye can help us to reduce anxiety and stress during times of heightened discordant energies. It will help bring mental clarity so that I can focus on the experience and learn from it more clearly.

    Ok by this I can see I will need to maintain a semblance of calm as anxiety will be ratcheting up a little bit as I work through the new information with regards to my goals and the path that I am manifesting. I will need to focus on not only my own calm but also maintain my connection to others as I work through it and truly consider how this will affect another and work towards gathering the support necessary.

    Saturn: the keywords are all about challenges, restrictions, structure, and responsibility. These are the influences that are creating challenges they are forcing you to pay attention more closely. There is meaning in the struggles that will help bring it all together.

    • Blue Tiger Eye: As an exceptionally soothing stone, blue tiger eye can help us to reduce anxiety and stress during times of heightened discordant energies. It will help bring mental clarity so that I can focus on the experience and learn from it more clearly.
    • Chrysoprase: This stone carries the energy of growth and ripening promise, it brings hope to the darkest thoughts and depths of our spirit. It helps accept your birthrights of prosperity, joy, and health.

    In this, I can see a little more that Saturn is bringing the challenges into play that I mentioned above. Both the stones surrounding this are telling me to focus on my energy as I work through this as I will find the keys needed to help others.

    Sun: the keywords for the sun are all about you, individuality. This is your creative forces, your purpose, your divine path, and all the things we show in the daylight.

    • Bronzite: In this stone, we see protection, the restoration of harmony and courage. When you feel overwhelmed, bronzite will help you get back on track. It infuses your spirit with grounding energy to bring you to a sense of calm allowing you to take control of your actions.
    • Blue Tiger Eye: As an exceptionally soothing stone, blue tiger eye can help us to reduce anxiety and stress during times of heightened discordant energies. It will help bring mental clarity so that I can focus on the experience and learn from it more clearly.
    • K2: This stone opens your consciousness, allows you to receive guidance from higher dimensions the likes of which will enable you to make more informed decisions for the highest good. Additionally, as a stone of empathy, it helps us to see and understand from the point of view of others.

    In this message, I am being told that I will need a little extra protection as I work through the things that are overwhelming me. Dig into my support network to help even out the energy, use stones the blue spectrum such as chalcedony and blue tiger eye to maintain calm and clear. My consciousness is being opened to new levels and I must prepare for this.

    Triple Moon: the keywords here are fairly straightforward. This is the triple goddess, the complete cycle of the goddess and her blessings. Pay attention here as there is something important to reveal from the goddess.

    • Bronzite: In this stone, we see protection, the restoration of harmony and courage. When you feel overwhelmed, bronzite will help you get back on track. It infuses your spirit with grounding energy to bring you to a sense of calm allowing you to take control of your actions.
    • Chrysoprase: This stone carries the energy of growth and ripening promise, it brings hope to the darkest thoughts and depths of our spirit. It helps accept your birthrights of prosperity, joy, and health.

    Again I am seeing that I need to accept the blessings I have as I do deserve them and in the process, I will be storing my own harmonic energy and lifting myself up. When this happens I can expect to find the information I need to be able to support others who seek to try this method of spiritual practice.

    Venus: the keywords here are our receptiveness to the world around us, harmony, our values, nurturing energies and yes our inner goddess and femininity…even for the men this matters.

    • K2: This stone opens your consciousness, allows you to receive guidance from higher dimensions the likes of which will enable you to make more informed decisions for the highest good. Additionally, as a stone of empathy, it helps us to see and understand from the point of view of others.

    Yes, the message is clear here. Stay in touch with your nurturing values and harmony can be restored. The messages will be offered from the higher dimensions to help with this process.

    All in all, there is a lot to unpack in this little cluster but basically, I need to protect my energy while I work on this. Share what needs to be shared, keep close to my vest that which needs to be held back. Something to consider here also is how the connections map to the people closest to me and how my energy affects them even across long distances. To release the overwhelm I must temporarily be extra aware of how far I share my energy so less reiki sending right now. I must focus on correcting the flow of my energy to proceed.

    When growth meets an obstacle


    2021 - 03.17

    This morning when I pulled my cards for a daily reading I was both surprised and not by the message received. As I mentioned in my last post, my focus has been shifting and the healing continues in my life and my path grows. I previously shared my weekly and monthly cards from Dreams of Gaia. During the week I also pull cards daily in my Chrysalis Tarot (shuffled on the first of every month for a month-long focus) and then my Beyond Lemuria Oracle which gets shuffled every two weeks with the New and Full moons. This method while non-traditional works very well for me and it really helps.

    Four of Stones, Chrysalis Tarot. Resing in the lid of a handmade Tarot Box

    Today, I pulled the Four of Stones from Chrysalis Tarot. This card is a MESSAGE. *laugh* This card is coming to me today to tell me that there is something blocking my path forward. This beautiful bejeweled chest is distracting and holds within it material possessions treasured and the whispers of those that are sought. If I am to move forward in my path and achieve my dreams, I must move the chest aside. My focus has been split between squirreling away treasures and growth. Treasures are bits and pieces of my path and life that aid but sometimes prove to be distractions. This card tells me to be more aware of the “ooh shiny” distraction of acquiring wealth or other material things that could hamper the growth process with all the sparkling that they do.

    This is a good reminder that as I move from working within to out I will need to adjust my mindset and “move the chest” obstructing my path forward. The time to shift these gears is upon me and I shall move forward with a little effort to remove blocks….

    Expansion of Self


    2021 - 03.15

    Tarot and oracle cards are an excellent method of growth and healing within our spiritual paths and lives. Many years ago, I began incorporating the use of cards to get a look at the energy for the day, week, or month…depending on the timing of the draw. It started out sporadically and has grown to a practice that involves multiple decks and the creation of a new system of alchemizing the messages that the cards bring.

    Self, Dreams of Gaia Tarot

    My monthly energy is coming up on completion as March hits the halfway point and Ostara approaches, the energy I am working with is that of the Self. Thematically, this month is about working with my relationship with myself and acceptance. It’s a path of healing and expansion. I have been fully immersed in taking care of myself this month, especially since for the last week I’ve had a cold. *laugh* Before I became sick, I have been doing a lot of introspection and healing for the last several months through my path and the creation of my new method which utilizes both tarot, crystals, a little astrology, and some journaling along the way. In the time since I began using this, I have healed and grown in ways that were not even a consideration. It has been incredible and later this year I will be sharing this process and path through Sacred Mists as a workshop and membership option. It’s very exciting, the method works.

    Three of Air, Dreams of Gaia Tarot

    This week, the three of air steps in to tell me that it’s time to pay attention to my studies as it is essential to be combined with the ongoing healing and overall growth that I am pursuing as a part of my path to reaching a higher vibration for myself. After all, we are a combination of our knowledge, our actions/reactions, our energetic light, and the connections we make. It is when we throw all this in the “mixer” we call life that we can share our energy, our light, and we can find wisdom in the path we walk. We can share these mysteries and paths with others and elevate ourselves to more compassionate beings on this beautiful planet, Earth.
