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!

Today’s reading is about knowing what you want and how to get it. Sometimes you simply have to walk away from those things that are oppressing you so that you may find your Fortune!

With Mercury in Retrograde, the full moon tonight and the 2 Major Arcana cards in this reading, it is clear that there will be a lot of life lessons coming up for us all. Knowledge is power and that begins with knowing what you really want and not accepting anything less…. Now is the time to make the list of your deepest hearts desires. Do not be fooled by cheap imitations… just because it has a pretty package, does not mean it is good on the inside! And if you find that it is not good on the inside, have the strength to walk away, knowing that you are walking towards all that you truly deserve! Your fortune is there but in order for you to find it, simply recognize what you want for your life and walk towards it. I keep hearing the Eagles song, “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”…. But you do have the key! Unlock yourself from all that does not truly serve you or where you are going!

Because we have a full moon, now is the time to clearly send the universe a message of what you want! Be specific and allow yourself to day dream a little!

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.

Its the little things in life that can give us the most pleasure…. And so often we forget that. Today, I want to remember all the little things that have brought me enormous pleasure….

Last week I got a call from a friend asking me to go to lunch to which I happily agreed… When we sat down she handed me a gift bag. It was not my birthday, or any other special occasion so I was kinda confused but I love gifts and understand that a gift should never be refused…. Ever heard the saying that it is better to give than receive? It is just as important to make sure that when you are presented with a gift that you open yourself to receive it!

After lunch I opened the bag while my friend told her story of why she was giving the gift. Inside the bag was a bright blue hand crafted journal with a frosted mirror and a shiny fairy etched inside…. She said that she had visited a medium in another town about a year ago that told her that she would meet me and the week before she was back in that town and saw the medium again. During conversation with the medium my friend relayed that everything that had been predicted the year before, as unlikely as it was, had come to pass. She ask the medium what gift she thought would be appropriate and was told to let Spirit guide her.

For weeks Spirit had been telling me to write… write, write,, write… just get it out and on paper.. My friend didn’t know this… So when she handed me that journal, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that now was the time… No more delays, just write… The journal now has a place of honor on my desk, the mirror staring me in the face reminding me that my life is a mirror of what I am putting out there! I a not sure that I can actually write in that journal because it is so beautiful to me, so I will let Spirit guide me as to where I am supposed to write….

So my beautiful friend… THANK YOU for listening to Spirit and providing me the mirror that I need! I LOVE YOU!
