    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.

    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 the short cut is not so short…


    2021 - 05.07

    The fallen tree lovingly referred to as “log” when the day gets tough sit on a log.

    To say that this week has been exhausting, in an emotional way, would be an understatement. Had I paid closer attention to my lithomancy roll for the week on Tuesday I would have noticed a pattern.

    I sometimes wait to take a look at the stones instead of right away and that short cut sometimes costs me a little bit of frustration. This week it cost me quite a bit in emotional labor. I could have mitigated that a little had I noticed that there was a focus on some stones in my roll. Three days later I look and see it.

    Triple Moon – my symbology here is Goddess and Service as a Priestess.

    • Blue tiger’s eye: keywords to focus on for this stone are mental clarity, calming, insight, and focus
    • Chrysoprase: keywords to focus on for this stone are compassion, healing, joy, prosperity, and understanding

    Moon – the symbology here is Inner-Being, Cycles, Souls, and Reactions.

    • Bronzite: keywords to focus on for this stone are releasing overwhelm, restoring harmony, and courage
    • Polychrome Jasper: keywords to focus on for this stone are success, vitality, passion/sexuality, manifestation

    Saturn – the symbology here is Responsibility, Challenge, and Structure.

    • Blue tiger’s eye: keywords to focus on for this stone are mental clarity, calming, insight, and focus
    • Polychrome Jasper: keywords to focus on for this stone are success, vitality, passion/sexuality, manifestation
    • K2 Stone: keywords to focus on for this stone are consciousness, empathy, and higher dimensions

    Yes, sometimes I definitely look deeply a little later than I should. The pattern is certainly there. I need to release that which is causing my overwhelm. Once I release this I can begin concentrating on restoring harmony and calm to my life. With that done I can focus on making real progress with manifesting my new class for Sacred Mists Academy for this entire process.

    I love it when the process you are detailing and have been using shows you the way to continue your success. To me, this says that this spiritual pathway can cause true spiritual alchemy and help you in your life.

    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….

    A visit with water…


    2021 - 02.24
    Winter Beach Surf

    A windy day at Rialto Beach as the waves crash

    For as long as I can remember, water has been my solace, my place where I find balance and am able to let go of pretty much everything that is plaguing my mind or spirit. Water is the flow of life, it encompasses all levels from being soothing to deadly and without it well we would not exist.

    It’s been a while since I took time to write and I can tell because I feel scattered and all over the place. It’s cold and previously has been snowy so a visit to the water is not in the cards right now. I make due by spending time in a warm bubble bath with candles when I can and on the busy days, I settle into washing dishes by hand just so that I have the comfort of water.

    I’ve not been what you would call “well” for a while. Between struggles with my sinus’, back, and knee pain I also struggle with depression and anxiety. Right now it’s finally starting to recede, I think. It faked me out a little last week with one or two pretty good days then bit me again saying no, I am not done with you yet. I’ve started a new supplement to help with it and I am less than a week into it so we will see how it goes in another few days. I’m not willing to say this episode is over yet. It’s been the longest episode of depression I’ve had in a long time but not as severe as some in the past. Yes, there was a lot of ideation and thoughts of cutting but I did not develop a plan nor did I self-harm so I will take it as a slight win. The ideation is still there but it’s not as severe as in previous episodes.

    Working through and resolving a history of trauma is not easy and my path helps me along in that greatly. How you may ask? Every day I sit down in the morning at my desk with my daily draw from my Beyond Lemuria Oracle deck. I sit with the card and consider the message while working to apply it to my life. I’ve added in working with Kuan Yin Oracle and learning to work with Kuan Yin to increase the positive alignment within to be more compassionate, kind, forgiving, and willing to extend mercy to those who have harmed. In these actions, I have found a base to allow myself to FEEL and RELEASE some of the negativity that surrounds me. I am able to slowly begin letting go of the bindings of my heart and spirit. Soon I will soar.
