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!

This morning while pulling my tarot cards I kept seeing a spider’s web… beautiful in all its intricacies. Spirit said, “Pull the cards if you must but don’t forget the Spider, all that it does and the web it spins.” Thinking about this message I started thinking how the spiders web was polar opposite in its usefulness. To the spider it provides life, to the creature trapped in the web it means death and to the larger creatures it is a mere nuisance.

But to the metaphysician it means tread carefully… watch the web you spin and the ones you allow yourself to be trapped in. It also means be very aware that life is a delicate balance that should be walked with awareness!

Blessing my friends!

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!

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!
