OH NO…. was what I screamed when this beautiful baby rolled right off my desk, onto my tile floor and shattered! My very warped mind started singing, “On top of Spaghetti, all covered in love, my poor crystal rolled onto the floor…..”  I wish it had rolled but nope… it shattered! Ironically, it split almost directly in 1/2. As you can see from the picture 1 1/2 is intact, while the other 1/2 completely shattered. The small pieces on the table were the only salvageable pieces. The rest were shards.

I knew that Spirit was trying to give me a message… I searched online for the metaphysical meaning of breaking a crystal. The only information I could find really had nothing to do with the sort of accident that had happened here. Now, some of you may say, accidents happen… sometimes a shattered crystal is just a shattered crystal and nothing more and sometimes you are correct… However, that was not the case here. In the past 3 weeks there has been shattered glass all around me. It started with the back screen door shattering and on the same day a coffee cup fell on cement and shattered. Then 3 days ago my son dropped a glass jar on the floor and it shattered… These items didn’t just break, they SHATTERED into tiny shards that flew everywhere! Given these incidents, I can not discount this beautiful stone shattering as an accident.

Some of the information that I found online was semi helpful but I really had to work to piece it together. So I started from the beginning… 1st of all, this was not my personal stone. It was a stone that I was getting ready to add to my online store for sale. I will explain why this is important later. This was a Fluorite Sphere, deep purple with incredible colors and a very high vibration. And a sphere crystal is about the connection to infinity. The metaphysical meaning of fluorite is: Increase concentration, Heighten Intuition, Clears the fog of illusion and brings order to chaos, the stone of discernment, Helps you see a larger picture. This is a stone that will stabilize relationship dynamics so that all may benefit. Fluorite is about Truth, intelligence, consciousness, purification and harmony.

Each crystal has its own purpose and vibration to help you in many ways. Choosing a crystal is very personal and you may be drawn to a certain crystal not knowing why until you research its usefulness. Crystal can take negativity around you and dispel it or take the energy into itself. When your personal crystal breaks it can mean that you have healed the issue it was used for and it is no longer needed or that you are not doing your work so the crystal breaks to let you know to get busy. Your personal crystal breaking is always symbolic of what is going on in your life. Is someone breaking you or are you breaking someone else? If you take a good honest look at yourself, you will understand why your crystal broke.

So that being said, what does it mean when this crystal shattered? Online I found others asking the question, “What do I do when my crystal breaks?” And found many answers such as bury it to return it back to the earth,  put it in a safe place but really, there was no advice on what to do.  Do with your stone what feels right to you. And certainly no answer to why this crystal broke. The best answer that I found was, “is someone pushing you to the breaking point or is someone close to you at the point of breaking.” Another good one was, “Something in your life is getting ready to break open.” This one seemed to fit the best as I have been focusing all my attention on my business. I also found that it varies on if what broke is good or bad luck. Some people said that if the glass breaks then it took something negative that was aimed at you, essentially saving you from something bad.

But still not satisfied with the answer I went into mediation. What I feel is that this stone breaking was an omen that my business is going to break wide open and that the shattered half is representative of all the negativity crumbling away and the intact half means that just because it was broken doesn’t mean that it is not viable. I was also told that I have to release the old patterns and essentially start fresh!

I do believe that Spirit gives us messages any way that we will listen and this sure got my attention! I would love to hear your stories of what you have broken!

We have all seen the TV shows glamorizing the paranormal… and for the most part, they are wonderful as they bring this way of life from the back door to the main stream. For that, I am so very grateful! However, I do have a bit of an issue with some of these shows…

Because these shows are so main stream now, people assume that my life is similar to those on TV. My answer is NO. Why? Because it would make me insane!!! I would never allow anyone, alive or dead to intrude on my private time. Could you imagine not having any control over the voices in your head? It would feel like Whoopi Goldburg in Ghost. No one wants to feel that way. And I certainly do not want to be waken from a sound sleep with a ghost or spirit (yes there is a HUGE difference that I will explain in another blog post) desperately trying to get my attention. If that was really the case, I would not do this work!  (or more realistically, I would be in a rubber room wrapped in a “hug myself” jacket).

My everyday life is just like everyone else’s… I am a mother, cook, housekeeper, friend, writer, student, wine lover, artist, light worker and grocery shopper.. All very average and mainstream. I have to go to school events and wash my own car just like everyone else! I do not go to the supermarket with my crystal ball and turban… I reserve those items for Halloween! LOL. However, I do have a crystal ball (see picture above)… No self respecting medium would be without one! Oh yeah, did I mention that I am a bit of a smart ass? But those are things that I do and some of my personality traits… Just like everyone else, when I am working, I am the ultimate professional…

There are very strict ethics involved in this work… And believe me, this is serious work! This is work that provides comfort and peace to a person that is dealing with the passing of a loved one… This is work that leads someone that is lost into God’s divine light. And I, work on the front lines with normal, everyday people showing them that God lives inside of us, that there is no need to look to any outside source. I never for one single second forget that this has absolutely nothing to do with me and everything to do with being a witness for something greater than myself! This work is SACRED and should always be treated with the highest regard! As a medium, I work in God’s Service for other people.

That being said, I feel that it is unethical to walk up to someone on the street and just give them a reading. While most of you think, “I would love if that happened to me!” it is an invasion of your privacy. Honestly, I feel like its kinda creepy… I would not want to be sideswiped that way so I would never do that to someone else. However, it is wonderful for ratings… and at the same time, it is a wonderful way for people to see that there is really nothing scary in what we do.

Which leads to the great debate… Is it worth it to get the word out? My answer is an emphatic YES!! Yes I want people to know the peace and love from the other side… Yes, I want people to understand that the dead people I talk to IS THE HOLY SPIRIT! Yes, you are saved, even if some of your actions were not always perfect… Yes, God Loves you!!!

So I ask you… How will you work in service to someone else today?

Click on the picture to purchase this Smoky Quartz

Not long ago I met someone that was dealing with a tremendous amount of personal problems. Once it looked like an issue was solved something else would come up and she felt stuck in a pattern that she could not see her way out of. When I shook her hand I felt like I was covered with a fog of negativity and my feet felt heavy like I was walking through mud. No wonder this girl felt stuck… SHE WAS!! Her aura was clogged with a negative fog that prevented her from making the correct choices.

As a medium, when I come in contact with an issue like this, it kinda absorbs into my aura too. Not that I intentionally try to take on the issues, but I have to know what she is going through and this is how I have agreed to help. When I shook her hand, our auras connected and some of her fog absorbed. I am trained  to handle these issues and have an enormous tool box of solutions at my disposal!! This time I chose Smoky Quartz and it worked like a charm!

My 1st thought was that this girl needs some Smoky Quartz STAT! Smoky Quartz is brown quartz so in addition to all of the healing properties of clear quartz, smoky quartz will absorb negativity and quickly transmute it into positive, flowing energy. Smoky Quartz replaced the negativity with calmness, clarity and intuition. In addition to clearing the aura, it also helps clear blockages in the digestive system, hips, feet, legs, abdomen and may help calm cramps! This is a grounding stone so it works best with the lower half of your body… (clearing stuck energy at your feet as with my client). We all know that when we are grounded we feel more balanced.

I found this on http://www.witchipedia.com/mineral:smoky-quartz.

Healing and Magickal Uses

Body: Smoky quartz melts energy blocks in the lower torso including the kidneys and reproductive organs. Smokey quartz is also useful for removing toxins and excess fluids in the body. It also tones the adrenal glands and helps settle hyper activity and helps with insomnia.

Mind: Smoky quartz is mildly sedative, grounding and relaxing and is a good focal point for meditation. It helps to balance the energies of the mind and body and enhances your ability to remember your dreams. It reduces anxiety and depression.

Magick: Smoky quartz protects home, work, and vehicles. Banishes nightmares and fears. Wear smoky quartz to enhance your ability to channel spirits. Use smoky quartz to banish negativity; Stand with your bare feet on the earth and hold a smoky quartz with the tip down. Release negative energy into the Earth and visualize it decaying into fertilizer to nourish plants and trees.

Every day we are all exposed to negative people, messages, thoughts and influences and if they are not released they will continue to collect in our aura and will eventually be absorbed into our body to form a dis-ease. Smoky Quartz should be a mainstay in your Spiritual Tool Box to release negativity from your aura before it gets to your physical body…

As most of you know… I LOVE STONES…. so much so that they cover every surface in my home and are in every room! So much so that I have incorporated them into my work and never leave home without at least one!

Recently I have been using green tourmaline a lot… This is an incredible little stone that immediately opens the heart chakra like few stones can… It is very rare and is usually found in quartz matrix. I am finding that quarts helps me see what needs to be released and what I need to hold on to… I have found that if I put it next to my be before I go to sleep that I will sleep so soundly… Green Tourmaline is very protective just like Black Tourmaline. But I’m finding that Green Tourmaline concentrates more on the  Protection of the Heart Chakra. And lets face it… we all have times when we need to protect our heart. When using Green Tourmaline as a sword to cut cords I find that the quartz immediately helps the chakra and aura heal, filling it with beautiful light.

Crystals are so individual and intuitively we will know which stone will help with our issue. There is a ton of information about the stones healing properties but I believe that the crystal will tell us where and how it should be used with us if we listen.

 

I have added them to my etsy page and I would love if you would go have a look! Simply click on the picture and you will be taken to my Etsy site!

This is a beautiful Smokey Quartz that I have for sale in my store. I absolutely love this egg… (who am I kidding, I love all my crystals) and you can tell how much I love it by the way it feels… The crystal just vibrates positive energy and protection! Smokey Quartz is a must have in any collection of crystals and it has many metaphysical uses and healing qualities.

Smokey Quartz is a grounding stone that will  Transmute negativity or negative energy allowing you to clearly see what you want and what you want to achieve. It is a must have in the office for concentration and fostering creativity.
This stone is incredibly Calming can be used to calm panic attacks!  If you will be in a high stress situation, this is the must have stone. It will bring you into harmony and can  calm others around you!  Making this stone valuable as a  Protection amulet that may be used as a shield to ward off psychic attack.
One of my favorite uses for this stone is during meditation as it can clear the mind for clearer understanding and gently release any negative thoughts that may arise. While in meditation you can focus on your Relationships and it will enhance them clearing emotional debris and releasing fear. In addition, Smokey Quartz can also help you to ground and protect during meditation.

Medical Uses (Information contained here does not negate medical advice but may enhance medical treatment.)

Smokey Quartz works with the Root Chakra and Solar Plexus Chakra so it is very effective when used for menstrual cramps, lower back pain,  digestion, hip pain and leg cramps.  Smokey Quartz will benefit the reproductive system, the heart, muscles and nerve tissue allowing you to release any negative energy that may be trapped there. For quick relief, add your smokey quartz  to your sea salt bath. It will instantly charge the water with wonderful vibrations!

How to clean and care for your Smokey Quartz:

Since Smokey Quartz is a hard crystal the best way to cleanse it is with a saltwater bath. I recommend sea salt but I have used Kosher Salt in a pinch. Make sure the water is not too hot or too cold and that you use filtered or distilled water if possible. Add about 1 tablespoon of salt for each cup of water and leave overnight. You may add more if you feel the need to do so, this is just a rough example.

Moon bathing is a wonderful way to recharge and energetically clear your stones. This works best during a full moon! Simply put outside and retrieve them the next morning. Be careful leaving Smokey Quartz in the sunlight for too long as it may fade.

For harder crystals, it is also Ok to simply cover them dry in salt and leave them over night. Rinse the next day and feel the love!

Crystals

Crystals…. Oh how I love you! I carry you with me every day! You make me feel loved and protected… Most mostly, you help me to ground! I feel connected to the earth whenever I carry you in my pocket…

Since I was a small child I have loved to collect rocks… Pretty rocks, odd shaped rocks, just about any kind of rock that felt cool in my hand! But my favorite have always been the ones shaped like hearts! How can you not just love a small reminder from God of his infinite love for you? Just a simple reminder that you are ADORED! Each stone is special and carries its own unique vibration if you take the time to feel the love it has.

The Quartz in the picture, I feel, was a gift from a friend that has crossed into Spirit. It was about 6 months after his passing and we took a trip to the mountains. We stopped at a place call Linville Falls, NC for the tour. Inside the gift shop I saw this stone laying on its side. No matter where I went in the store, my eye kept coming back to this incredible stone. So I finally ask the clerk if I could hold it! Wow! I felt such an intense vibration run right through me and I knew I had to have this incredible stone! So I ask for the price and was further blown away! A stone this size would normally go for about $150 based on the weight of over 3 pounds. To my surprise it was only $40. I knew it was meant to be! My friend will forever be in my heart, always sending me reminders of his enormous love!

Right now, my most used stone is a piece of Elestial Quartz with a gold vein  that my son and I found at our favorite horse barn. We didn’t notice the gold until we got the stone home and were using it in a Reiki Share. It is a magnificent stone! The vibration is one of peace and protection and it gives a feeling that anything is possible! The gold reminds me that even when you feel like you are surrounded by “rocks” you can still shine! What a beautiful message…. One that I don’t want to forget! With the price of gold right now I could probably make a nice sum of money… but the money could never equal the feeling this stone leaves me with.

So what is your favorite stone? How do you use crystals and minerals help you?
