Life these days can be very demanding and it is often a challenge to successfully balance all aspects of mind, body and soul. Busy work days, financial responsibilities, and the demands of our social and family life, can make it so easy to allow our spiritual practice to slip. Fortunately, the metaphysical power of crystals can help us keep our spiritual motivation going. Here’s how.
Ask For Support
Should you feel the need for support from a particular crystal, then all you need to do is simply ask for it. For example, do you think you need to increase your self-discipline, or that your resolve should be strengthened? If so, gently hold some malachite in one hand and request that it helps and supports you to this end. In fact, you could carry it with you at all times whenever you sense the need of its help.

This morning, I ran into one of my friends in our little Spanish town, and we decided to grab a coffee and catch up. I was delighted at how she took an interest in my Om/Aum pendant. She commented on how I seemed to treat my pendant as something rather sacred, and with respect – an interesting observation! She loved the flow of the shapes, and asked if the pendant had any specific meaning.
I had to remove the pendant and study it closely to try and remember what I was taught years ago, in order to give her a brief description to the best of my ability. One by one I tried to connect with each swirl in the design and was surprised that I had remembered quite a lot of what my mentor had taught me. It was a long time ago, when we used the Om/Aum chant in our meditation sessions.
With my pendant on the table I began to explain the meaning of the dot at the top of the symbol, and recalled that this related to the silence after chanting Om/Aum. It represents the Enlightened Self, and is known as the transcendental state of Turiya. Read the rest of this entry »
Faeries love fun and love to play! When you are experiencing a creative phase, or feeling called to go outdoors, or into the garden, there’s a good chance you are being called out to have some fun and free spirited playtime with the faeries.
Typically, faeries, or fae, are easiest for us to connect with during the times of year when seasonal energy portals are open on the cross quarters holidays of the Summer and Winter Solstice, and Spring and Fall Equinox. These times are traditionally also celebrated in the ancient pagan festivals and religious holy days of Imbolc (Saint Brigid’s Day) on February 1st, Ostara (Easter) on March 21st, Beltane (St. Walburga’s Day)on May 1st, Litha (St John’s Day) on June 20th, Lammas (Loaf Mass Day) on August 1st, and Samhain (All Saints’ Day) on October 31st.

I’ve recently become interested in charm casting, because I’ve begun to notice objects in everyday life that are parallel to the Lenormand Cards* I use in my psychic readings. Charm casting refers to small objects, such as charms you’d see on a necklace or bracelet, that are used for divination.
The premise is that each object has a specific meaning that you’ve assigned to it. For example, a heart can pertain to love; a dog to loyalty; a ring to commitment, even contracts; a house to security and safety, and so on. You ask an open-ended question, then put the charms into a bowl or box, shake, and cast them onto a surface or cloth. By looking at the charm groupings, you will be able to divine the answer to your question. Read the rest of this entry »
I use my wand mainly to project healing energy onto a person who happens to be in a healing session with me, or I use it remotely, using a photo or an item belonging to the recipient of the healing. With the help of my wand, I project healing to shift blocks, or to heal wounds; even to work on pulling out pain or negativity. When I do a healing session, which involves pulling out any negativity, I ensure any negative energy is transmuted by asking for help from my spirit helpers. Then I also offer a prayer for the violet flame to transmute that negative energy, and finally, on cleaning the wand itself. Read the rest of this entry »
Within minutes of putting my request to them, my Basenji dog entered into my work room and stared and stared at me until the penny dropped. Her name is Amber and she has the most exquisite Amber colored eyes. Like the stone that is ruled by the Sun, Amber has a sunny, forever happy disposition. So, Amber it was.
Amber may well be the oldest substance people have adorned themselves with through the ages. Pendants and beads made of Amber have been found mainly in and around graves in Northern Europe, dating as far back as 8000 B.C. Then, like now, it would have been known not just for its beauty, but for its healing, strengthening and good fortune qualities. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently I started handing out business cards for my psychic reading services to some of the dealers and regulars I was getting to know.
Of course, I got teased at the table I was sitting at. I kept telling them that it doesn’t work that way. I mean, once in a while I can tell you which color the next card will be, or I know when the dealer will go bust, but I can’t read minds. When I win at cards it’s because I pay attention to the other players and their body language. With Black Jack, it’s all random and you only need to know statistics. However, my guides will let me know if it’s time to go home, or not to go at all. Read the rest of this entry »
