Citrine is a variety of Quartz. It can be pale to golden yellow, to honey, even brown. It can also hold rainbows or sparkle inclusions. The name stems from the French word citron which is lemon. It was used as a gem in Ancient Greece, however most of the Citrine sold today is actually heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz. Natural Citrine is pale yellow. Heat-treated Citrine and natural Citrine are said to have different uses and metaphysical properties.
It is traditionally known as The Merchant’s Stone, because it brings money to a cashbox. In fact, this is one reason I have come to like this stone. This is a stone of success, abundance, prosperity, and attraction of wealth. It also encourages generosity and sharing. It helps with acquiring fast money. We can carry it to bring money and to stop the extreme outpouring of money. Read the rest of this entry »
Charity does begin at home. Whether you think of charity as alms for the impoverished, or kindness to strangers, or perhaps non-judgment in times of questionable behavior by others, it is still imperative to look within first. Before you can be truly charitable to others, it is important to be kind to yourself first. Ultimately, you cannot give to others freely and easily that which you do not give to yourself.
You are a loving and giving being. However, sometimes you are your own worst critic and have nothing but fault to find when you come up short regarding lofty expectations of yourself.
Sometimes you have set this bar so high that you are incapable of reaching the goals within your estimated timeline. Sometimes life intervenes in your best laid plans and deadlines are missed. Sometimes you self-sabotage from fear of success, or failure. Each of these instances can cause undue stress, which is not only harmful to you, but also to the people in your circle.

When we think of abundance, our general thinking is that it refers to money and finances. It is true that with the energy of money we can create the life we love, and we can be in a place to support others or causes that we love. But abundance goes beyond mere wealth or financial prosperity. Consider the abundance of time, abundance of friends, abundant health and well-being, and the gracious abundance of love.
Sometimes we are just stuck and don’t know where to start in our desire to manifest abundance in the many areas of our lives. So let’s take a look at where to begin. Where in your life currently are you feeling the most conflict, or pain? You can begin there! From my experience and working with others, once you start examining your belief in this area and shifting it, all the other areas start to shift too. Read the rest of this entry »
It is a fact that all friendships, just like relationships, will have their ups and downs. Nevertheless, a real buddy would want the very best for you – irrespective. On the other hand, a ‘friends’ who are toxic will only be concerned about themselves. In fact, it would probably not matter one whit to them if your happiness was destroyed in the process of them getting what they want!
So, just how do you recognize an energy vampire to start with? Look for the signs, says spirit, which could be one or more of the following: Read the rest of this entry »
In the past couple of weeks, I had to deal with major financial expenses related to our property. We have to move across the country, and we are having issues with the house. Then there were also the added costs of a vehicle that needed urgent repairs. This was not a lot of money, but it came up at the same time as the property issue, and the costs of our move.
To add insult to injury, my beautiful little kitty knocked over a cup of water onto my computer yesterday… and fried my motherboard! I found out later that my extended warrantee had just expired, and the repair costs were not really worth it, considering that the technology was a few years old. So, I had to purchase a new computer for work. Read the rest of this entry »
I have struggled with depression for many years. I used to have highs and lows. During the highs I was invincible, untouchable and successful. Everything I touched seemed to turn to gold (in my mind). My personal appearance would be well-manicured, my house immaculate, gourmet meals were served for breakfast lunch and dinner. I would start new businesses, for having a husband, two children and a full-time shift job was not enough.
I launched these businesses with great success while on my emotional highs. Money excited me – not other people’s money, but the money I was able to make during these manic bouts. I loved it and loathed it all at the same time. I barely needed to sleep. I would spend lavishly on those I loved. Read the rest of this entry »
Every one of us knows someone who seems to have it all. We probably secretly want this for ourselves, but when we think of “having it all,” we usually envision things such as homes, cars, and the like, in other words, physical things. Stop for a moment to think about when you last asked for spiritual abundance: meaningful relationships, internal balance, harmonious thoughts. All of this can be had if we are willing to ask our angels and guardian spirits, who look out for us in every way!
The universe itself is synonymous with abundance. It is designed to meet our needs in every way. Why are we not, then, getting what we need? It all starts with asking. A parent cannot know what his or her child needs until that child asks. It is absolutely necessary that we make our needs, along with our hopes and dreams, known. This is intent.

I remember telling my friend Audrey many years ago how well she was handling an upsetting situation. The matter related to a mutual friend who had borrowed a significant amount of money, and even though swift repayment was promised, the promise was not kept, nor acknowledged by the borrower.
Audrey seemed to take a really spiritual approach towards the situation and said to me, “I don’t lend money without first considering that I may well have to write it off in the end.” This was ironic, since he wasn’t exactly well-off herself.
“Why should I choose to be a victim, and to carry that huge load of resentment around on my shoulders, when I do have a choice to simply put it down? To carry that heavy knapsack of anger and resentment would only be draining to my health and peace of mind,” she explained. Read the rest of this entry »
