I’ve been discovering new crystals to aid me and re-discovering ones that I’ve had for a while. I’ve been amazed at how many I’ve felt drawn to all have in common the ability to aid in consciousness shifting in one way or another. I wanted to share them with you.
Green Calcite – Green calcite can assist in dissolving old rigid belief systems, restoring balance to your mind. It aids any transition from a stagnant to a positive environment. It is also used to stimulate the immune system and absorb negative energy. (Source)
Ruby in Ziosite – This stone has a strong spiritual nature, that may alter your consciousness, and give you access to your soul memory, to help you with spiritual learning. It supplies a vibration that creates an altered state of consciousness to help you to understand yourself and the world around you. Its vibration within the third eye chakra then combines with the heart chakra as it enhances the energetic and neural connections between your brain and your heart. Its vibration is powerful at the heart chakra… Centered there it encourages the mind to hear the desires of the heart and to understand them enough to accomplish what is needed. (Source)
Selenite – Selenite exists at the doorway between spirit and nature. It is the fiber holding these two worlds in communication with each other and is a receiver for information from the causal plane. It provides its owner with more facility to reach these planes and communicate with the higher spiritually evolved beings, masters and teachers who are willing to use Selenite as a means of communication. Selenite comes originally from ancient oceans and seas. So it is a water element just as the emotions are associated with the element water. . It has been found that Selenite has a direct effect upon balancing the emotions. That feeling of complete balance when you are in a very spiritual state of calm and joy, that is the sense of spiritual light force that Selenite can bring to you. (Source)

Most of these stones are ones I’ve been carrying with me in a charm bag or wearing in jewelry. Others sit on my altar and I’ve used them as meditation aids.
If you found yourself particularly drawn to the description of any of these stones and their properties, I encourage you to seek out the stone or stone and use it for yourself.
I’ve had the book Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf in my possession for a while now, but my Spirit told me I wasn’t quite ready to dive into it. But today, I was led to do the first meditation in the book, which is the meditation of the dove or the initiate.
In the meditation, I offered up the parts of my life I want to change on my heart-flame altar, then jumped off a cliff, transforming to a dove as I fell. I went through a tunnel of light to ancient Egypt and saw myself as a priestess/healer. I was visiting a poor house, where a father and his son greeted me enthusiastically.
I went inside to find their daughter/sister lying ill on the bed. I crossed over to her, laid my body upon her and prayed that her illness would be transferred into my body, and that my body and the energy of the Universe would heal me as I took that on. I could feel and see in my mind’s eye my cells doing the processing. When I felt the process was done, I pulled myself off the girl, and she jumped up, hale and hearty.
I walked back to the temple, where my acolyte – who is a woman I have been seeing in visions and calling to me as my dream lover – took me by the hand and led me to a couch where we lay together. I was resting from my massive energy out-put and she was just loving and supporting me.
This was powerful for me in many ways, but one way in particular I’ll mention is the acolyte/dream lover I saw. This is a soul who I recently met in this lifetime. He’s in a man’s body this time. We both felt a deep connection when we first met, and I knew that we had history in Egypt together. I had wondered why being with this man makes me feel like I’m being super-charged with light and power! Now I feel like I understand. I am so grateful to have this soul back in my life, and so grateful for the deeper understanding this meditation brought to my awareness.
I was asked to review Sylvia Browne’s new book, Afterlives of the Rich and Famous, in exchange for a free copy, which I was happy to do! I recently finished reading a couple of books on a similar topic, one of which Browne also wrote: Temples on the Other Side, an explanation of different spheres of activity and functions of spirits in the afterlife. After that, I read Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives by Michael Newton, Ph.D., which describes interviews under hypnosis in which subjects recalled their past lives and their existence in between them.
I just had to mention those before I went into my review, because I really enjoyed them both, and I think that reading them helped me to feel more “in touch” with an over-arching view of the afterlife, versus the very particular stories Browne tells, through her spirit guide, in Afterlives of the Rich and Famous.
Afterlives of the Rich and Famous is divided into 4 major sections: “Introduction” (which I mostly skipped since I’ve read several of her other books and knew most of what she covered there), “Death…and Then What” (a brief summary of the most pertinent information in Temples on the Other Side), “Glossary” (definition of terms the reader might be unfamiliar with from “astral travel” to “the waiting room”), and “Celebrities” (the largest and, most interesting, section of the book).
As usual, Browne did her homework before writing this book. Each celebrity she discusses is described through a brief overview of his/her life and death. Since I wasn’t really expecting that, I found it a bit off-putting, until I got to a celebrity that I wasn’t really familiar with, and then I was very grateful to have the information handy! After this overview, there is a section from Francine, Browne’s spirit guide, whom Browne channeled during recorded interviews. This section describes how the soul of the celebrity entered the afterlife and what they are doing now. A couple celebrities also had sections from Browne, describing how she had been involved with the spirit of the deceased prior to writing this book.
The celebrities Brown covers include Paul Newman, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, George Carlin, Rock Hudson, Heath Ledger, Grace Kelly, John Kennedy Jr., Walter Cronkite, Abraham Lincoln, Michael Jackson, Princess Diana, George Harrison and many more! I was especially interested to read about George Carlin’s experience upon entering the afterlife, since he’d been so thoroughly anti-God in his lifetime. This is an excerpt from Francine’s description:
I wish you could have seen the look of shock on George’s face when he emerged from the tunnel and rediscovered that there really is life after death after all. And when he found his first wife, Brenda, waiting to greet him, he was stunned into a long silence while he held her, after which I’m told he gaped at the hundreds of spirits and animals who gathered for the reunion and said, “I’ll be damned.” George is an excellent example of the fact that atheists are embraced on the Other Side as surely as the most devoutly religious, and with his humor, self-honesty, and misguided but honorable intentions, he tried to live a godly lifetime, no matter what words he used to define it.
Once he spent time [reviewing his previous incarnations], all his memories came flooding back, not only of the life on the Other Side to which he’d just returned, but also of the life that preceded this most recent one — he was a black man in the mid-1800s, wrongly convicted of and executed for a murder he did not commit, the murder of a white woman, which, it was later learned, was actually committed by the presiding judge. It was understandable that George arrived angry and rebellious against “the system,” and it was brilliant of him to have charted a sense of humor that would allow him to express his outrage through the power of laughter… (pages 78-79)
It was very interesting to learn about the choices these souls had made about their life plans and the way they felt about how they did afterwards. It added to my understanding of just how little we can truly grasp about ourselves and our mission here on Earth while we are still experiencing it.
Of course, not all of the souls chose to go “through the tunnel” to the Other Side. Some remained Earth-bound for years, haunting their familiar places, until they were helped over to the Other Side, or else chose to go into what Browne calls “the Holding Place” – essentially what we know of as purgatory, where souls who chose to separate themselves from Love wait to reincarnate.
Reading Afterlives of the Rich and Famous helped me to realize in a new way just how much love, support and wisdom our souls and our spirit guides have to offer us (though we can always chose to deny it). It’s also wonderful to have example after example of souls learning deeply from their life experiences and, sometimes, choosing new spiritual careers afterward.
I was often moved to tears while reading this, and I am very grateful to Browne for writing it. Definitely recommended reading!
The following are some of my recent drawings with messages I have received from the fairies during meditation over the past several weeks. I hope this lightens your heart as it did mine
More play! More laughter! More dancing! More sunshine! Follow your bliss and we will bless you!
Beware kill-joys and closed minds. They act like candle snuffers for fairy light.
Keep growing plants, drawing, dancing, playing and looking/listening for beautiful surprises from the Universe. This will help you.
We are always here for you. We will help in times of need.
Play! Be joyful!
Don’t forget to dance, delight in plants and animals and let your whimsy lead you. The more you do, the more we can play with you.
My guides have been teaching me some astounding things about my soul’s journey before I was here and the connections it/I formed. Two recent realizations have helped me to comprehend the power of my soul, the incredible significance and value of being in touch with the Invisible Realm beyond the Material Forms we currently embody, and the vast love and power always on hand to assist us!
I have mentioned my Spirit Guide Malachi before. He’s been one of the entities I talk to in my meditations and one who gives me very sage advice. I see him as a curly brown haired, bearded man who wears a loose robe and sandals. Now, I was reading Sylvia Browne’s Temples on the Other Side and she said that the Council of Elders there, who counsels souls before and during incarnations, was headed by a man named Malachi and it blew my mind. I couldn’t wait to meditate to ask my Malachi if he was the same Malachi who heads the Elders. He admitted he was one and the same and I was instantly even more grateful for his wisdom and his personal attention.
But even more amazing was to discover what my guides call my First Form – the original expression of my soul within the Universe. This came about over two days as I began to question the Fox spirit that guides me from the Higher Realm to the Lower Realm in my meditations. I sensed such love and joy from her that it seemed she was hiding something from me. So I asked her why she was the one who led me, and she brushed me off with a response about how her Fox characteristics made her the best guide for me – but I could tell she was holding something back in a somewhat teasing fashion!
The next day I asked her again why I felt we were so deeply connected and she then revealed that in my First Form I was a Fox Trickster in the Lower Realm where I bothered bear, played with the fairies, and generally caused fun and mischief wherever I went.She had been my mate through ageless seasons there. She even told me a couple of stories from my life there and they rang so true with me! I was astounded and overjoyed to realize this great wisdom about myself. I was also amazed to find another guide had been my partner in a previous lifetime.
My guides want you to know that we must all begin to realize our True Selves and how powerful we are.
Blessings on your journey, dear friends.
