    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.

    Energy of the Week


    2021 - 05.10

    A light green and pink fluorite rests on a tree log.

    Every Monday, I shuffle and then pull a card from the Minor Arcana of my Dreams of Gaia deck. This is a part of the process I use for My Alchemy.  The energy of this week is Three of Water. The three of water is a card of positive affirmation, success, and joyful potential. Celebrate the victories as they happen and know that your success continues.

    I welcome beginning my week with this energy! Last week I saw a lot of struggling as I worked through some emotional difficulties and other things going on in “life.” These struggles are meant to strengthen the mettle of my soul (Ok ok ok enough already please) and the desire I have for my growth and the things I am seeking to manifest. I know that as I continue forward I must also take heart in my daily card from Beyond Lemuria which is to surrender. These two cards today really focus on the need to focus and be in charge of the direction my life takes. Yet sometimes, to ensure success and manifestation that you must first release the need to control. You must trust in the Universe to help provide the direction that will lift you up in exactly the right moment so that you do not drown in the river you are trying to cross. Trust in the process, give when you need to, and take control when you need to get to the other side. It is through that combination that all things become possible.

    Later today or tomorrow I will spend some time with my lithomancy throw for the week to see any emerging patterns.

    Transitioning out of hibernation…


    2021 - 03.22

    The joke here is that as I begin to move from doing the inner alchemy and healing work of spirit to the outer alchemy which includes the presentation and incorporation of that healing that I am coming out of hibernation. I will be more active and engaging but it goes beyond this, the trick is to hold onto the lessons and healing that I have done in the last phase of My Alchemy(TM) while continuing to heal and grow in a way that is visible this time…

    During this first week of transition, I have swapped my crystals out after they charged up while on my altar over the Ostara weekend and done my first throw with them. I have shuffled my “monthly” card and will be using this as my guide during the shift. My card for this is the Sage. The Sage appears as a reminder that we have gained knowledge and wisdom during our turn inward over the last seasons (Mabon to Ostara) and now we engage in those lessons and share them with others. This card is the gateway towards an outward expression of this path I am walking on. It is with the guidance of the Sage, I will learn to present all I have learned and guide others in this path soon enough.

    The weekly card for me is the Six of Water. As I move from inner alchemy to outer alchemy, remember that above all I must be myself and find an anchor in that. The past has helped shape me, the lessons guided me through healing and now I can release the hold the past held on my spirit and move forward. Compassion, forgiveness, and healing are keywords for this card and I will pull all those elements forward with me. I will seek for every interaction to be filled with compassion and send hope that it continues from me to others.

    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….

    Threw the box away…

    King of Earth Dreams of Gaia Tarot Card and Crystals

    The King of Earth tarot card from the Dreams of Gaia Tarot deck with a raw piece of rainbow obsidian, Tibetan quartz, amethyst, and a smoky amethyst scepter.

    Sometimes you have to step outside the box to really see yourself grow and your vibration to be elevated. I decided to throw the box away…for the last five months, I have been creating a new process that utilizes crystals, astrology, tarot, and witchcraft to bring my journey and path to greater harmony. This is something that I have really enjoyed creating and while I am still working out how to get it out there, I continue to use it and grow myself…

    The process I’ve created works. In the time I’ve been developing and testing it with a friend I have seen incredible personal growth and have slowly started to lift myself out of the constant hamster wheel of anxiety. Oh, it still happens but I am able to sit and work with it most of the time and come out on the other side of it a little more peaceful.

    My weekly card this week is the King of Earth…I’m digging his message to me…

    This is a success story. Right now it is not the time to make changes but to sit and honor your process. Do the research, look at the long-range with what you will need to become successful in your pursuits. Do not forget to stop and enjoy the journey along the way and perhaps bring that journey into the process for greater understanding. It is through understanding and patience that we are able to make the long race successful.
