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!

What do you think of when you see this sign? Do you react differently, more respectfully? I know that I do… I want to protect the valuable contents that is wrapped in the package….When most people see the warning “Fragile”, they take extra precautions, knowing or at the very least hoping, that a true prize is hidden behind this sticker…  What we often forget is that our body is our packaging and that inside we are a priceless, fragile, breakable and EXTREMELY valuable! Not just some of us…. ALL OF US! We are all dealing with our own internal issues and at the same time dealing with every day life. Life can be traumatizing and painful but at the same time full of valuable lessons about our self and others…  The trauma can make us forget how precious truly living life can be!

Last week I was chatting with a new acquaintance about people being pushed to their limits  and how freeing it could be when someone just lets go and accepts more than they thought they were capable of accepting. This statement sent an ice cold rod of fear straight down the center of my very being.  It forced me to look at my inner self and I did not like what I saw! I was not pushing myself to any limits… I was guarding and protecting myself for fear that if anything in my world changed a hair that the priceless and extremely valuable glass vase inside myself, that is already cracked and traumatized  would completely shatter and I would be left on the floor in absolute pieces again…

Just like everyone else, I have been a package that was kicked around. Someone had shaken and cracked the precious cargo within never understanding how priceless the contents inside were. Never understanding the damage they were creating…. Leaving me to pick up the pieces and put myself back together. However, I have forgotten a very important element until that conversation… and that is gluing the cracks and sanding down the rough edges, filling in the remaining fractures with love, peace and happiness and making my vase solid again… Allowing my vase to hold love again… Knowing that the fractures and the cracks are the limits that I have already pushed myself to and in that statement is pure FREEDOM! My friend was correct…. there is Freedom in pushing yourself to the limits even when you are not sure what those limits are! There are priceless lessons in knowing your own worth and this conversation reminded me of mine!

It would be so easy if we all had this Fragile sticker posted above our heart as a reminder that at the center of our authentic self we just want someone to look at us and realize exactly how priceless, valuable and fragile we truly are and handle us with love and care.

This statement really hit me this morning… I woke up at 5:30 am to my dog desperate to get outside… When I couldn’t get back to sleep I booted up face book and this message stared me right in the face…

After I let the dog out (and back in) I went back to my nice warm comfy bed only to be bombarded by thoughts of situations that I could not control… People that had hurt me, conversations that I should have, conversations that I have already had, and emails that I want to write. On and on and I could not turn it off…. the longer I lay there, the more frustrated I became… I could not control any one of the situations that poured through me…

And so it IS…. I can not control the way other people behave. I can not control what other people say. I can not control the dog scratching at the door at 5:30! The only thing I am in complete control of is how I choose to behave…. I could get angry at the dog for waking me up, but I know that he is having tummy issues and I am grateful that he “asked” to be let outside so he didn’t have an accident in the house. I could choose to be angry about the person that was talking badly about me, but I choose to understand that she could not see outside of herself long enough see my pain and frustration. I could lash out via email at the person that I feel has betrayed me, but I choose to recognize that betrayal as an end to a friendship that was never supposed to last..

Today, I choose to send love and kindness into the world… Today, I choose to embrace all the lessons I have learned and let go of all of the negative influences that do not serve my highest good… Today, I choose to have control over myself and my connection with God and I choose to LET GO of all the things that I can not (and if the truth be told, do not want to) have control over!!!

 

Namaste!!

Unless you are not human, you have invisible cords connected to your aura and/or physical body. People have different names for the cords and use terms such as, attachments or bonds. Whatever you call them they are there. People who have experienced out of body mediation’sor near death experiences have reported seeing a silver cord connecting their spirit to their physical body. When a baby is born, it is connected to its mother by a cord.

The cords I am speaking about are the cords that keep us connected to an experience, event or people. They are invisible but there none the less. Even when we break from the physical person or event, sometimes we still hold on to the cord. Feeling that if we cut it, we loose the attachment or memory. While there are some cords that we want to keep, there are others that continue to cause us pain; physical and emotional. These are the ones that need to be let go of. While it would seem easy, sometimes it is not.
Recently, I have been feeling the need to let go of past issues. There was one event in my life that I knew still caused me tremendous pain and my guides told me that now was the time to let it go. While doing some spiritual work with a dear friend of mine I ask for her assistance with this. Not really understanding why only knowing that I should.
We went into meditation and she channeled the most helpful and powerful cord cutting I have ever experience. The results have been both physical and emotional. She has also been guided to channel healing Energetic Portals and I have included the link at the bottom of this message. If you do this meditation, please visit the Fire Portal for assistance and if you keep reading, you will understand why. Below is the mediation as I remember it:
We begin by calling in our guides, Arch Angels, Jesus, Mary and the Ascended Masters asking them for support and guidance. See yourself inside a circle of golden, purple fire. Open all of your Chakras and feel the healing light radiate throughout your entire being. Feeling the love and support from the other side and seeing yourself as a light being. Bring in the person or event that you need to separate from. Honestly tell them how you feel, release all attachment and forgive yourself and the event or person. Send the person or event love and ask that the fire burn away what no longer serves your higher self. Sending this healing back into past lives if you need to, sending it across time and space. When you feel you are finished, release the person from the circle. See yourself standing alone there, feeling the healing warmth of the fire and allowing the cord to that event or person to be burned. When you are ready, see the flames lowering knowing that you are safe and supported.
This can be a very short meditation or it can be as long as you need it. You can even do multiple events!
After doing this meditation I have had various physical and emotional symptoms. My spirit feels very light and free but my body physically hurts where the cords were burned away. I am having hot and cold spells although my temperature has remained normal. I am extremely thirsty and feel no desire to eat. My lungs feel clear, yet I have a mild cough. My nose is running but my sinuses feel clear and I have a mild headache, much like the common cold, but at the same time I don’t feel sick. I have a burning down my esophagus like I could vomit but my body does not have to. While I am having physical symptoms, at the same time, I am not. I understand that this does not make a lot of sense, however, this is how I am feeling and I know it is because of all of the events and people that I have been releasing! It feels wonderful and crappy at the same time!!!!
I hope that you use this meditation and that it helps you as much as it has me!! Enjoy!
Please take a moment to visit the website of Linda Backes for the Fire Portal:
UPDATE:
I wanted to update everyone on the past week since I have done this cord cutting… After speaking with Linda and describing my ongoing symptoms she thought to herself that this could not be right for them to last so long… After her meditation she called and told me that I was not finished but that she was not to help as this was a lesson for me to figure out… **big sigh** Thanks Spirit… so off I went into meditation… only to discover that while I had cut the cord to this event, someone was still connected to it… This was a 3 way cord from the event to me to this other person back to the event. Because I was still connected to the person, the cord was not completely severed. So I contacted the person and ask if they were willing to “Go There” with me… Thankfully They were agreeable….
After a long conversation filling in the blanks of things that I didn’t know, we went into meditation and severed their cord to the event! HHUUUUUHHHHH sweet relief! It was severed and healing balm was placed on both of our connect points. We reinforced our connection and the results have been miraculous!

Thank you Linda for helping me figure this out.
