An Angel Requests Your Help

Dear fellow light-workers, Today I was at Pershing State Park in Laclede MO, and the guardian angel of the park gave me a mantra to share with y’all: “We are in harmony, acting as one.” The angel asked that we say this mantra 324 times each day (108 x 3) until the shift of 12/12/12. ♥

Helpful Crystals for Consciousness Shifting

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)

Rose Quartz – Often called the “Love Stone” or the “Heart Stone”, it is a gem of unconditional love that opens oneself to all forms of love, self love, family love, platonic love, romantic love. This quartz will give the proper enhancement of love in virtually any situation. Emotionally rose quartz brings gentleness, forgiveness, compassion, kindness and tolerance as well as balancing one’s emotions; thus bringing inner peace and harmony. It helps balance emotions and heal emotional wounds and traumas, even grief, bringing peace and calm. Rose quartz removes fears, resentments and anger. It can also heal and release childhood traumas, neglect, and lack of love, in part by enhancing inner awareness. (Source)

It can bring much that is gotten stuck in motion and is specifically useful in dissolving physical and mental blockades such as headaches, back pain, anxiety complaints, nightmares etc. Larimar is an excellent companion in times of changes and crises. Larimar creates a gentle and peaceful connection between heart and mind. It brings calmness, like gazing at a placid sea. We are better able to accept things as they are. Beyond that it helps us to look at events from a different perspective and maintain respect for another’s point of view. It is one of the most important healing stones for the 21st century. (Source)

It also encourages spiritual growth, clear vision, memory, faith, intelligence and communication, inspiration, joy, intuition, clairvoyance, sensuality, love, romance, beauty, harmony, tranquility, serenity, clarity, cleansing, justice, friendship and unity. It seems that more kinds of physical healing have been ascribed to the emerald than to almost any other stone. It allows access to the mystery we hold deepest in our hearts, thereby healing and activating our highest hearts desire. (Source)

Moonstone – Long considered to have inherent connections to the moon by all ancient cultures familiar with the stone, it was used during the waxing of the moon for love charms and during the waning of the moon to foretell the future. Vibrating with the feminine wisdom and Goddess energy of the waxing and full Moon, moonstone has a reflective, calming energy. It helps to strengthen intuition and psychic perception and brings balance and harmony with the All. It is said to have the power to grant wishes. Moonstone Honors the Goddess in all women. It aids in dieting, gardening, psychic awareness and meditation. It soothes stress and anxiety, and it enhances intuitive sensitivity via feelings. Promotes greater flexibility and flow with life. Helps all be more comfortable with our gentler feminine/yin receiving side. Helps one be more conscious of the fact that all things are part of a cycle of constant change. (Source)

Serpentine – Serpentine gets its name from the word ‘serpent’ because it resembles the skin of a snake. It has been used since ancient times to guard against disease and sorcery. Serpentine makes an exceptional meditation stone. It helps you to find inner peace, and encourages the ability to solve conflicts by peaceful means. (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.

Fairy/Child Meditation

Image via Wiki Commons

I’m 23 weeks pregnant, which is very exciting. I’ve been meditation on/with the spirit of this child who will also be a guide to me for years and it will be great to meet him in person. He threw me for a loop by choosing to incarnate as a boy, though his spirit had always appeared to me as a female before. Just one more reminder that who we are in the body does not at all encapsulate who we are in totality.

Anyway, that’s all by way of introducing the lovely meditation I had the other day that I felt led to share:

In the meditation, I grounded myself by visualizing roots tying me to the Earth & being surrounded by white light. Then I visualized myself walking near a stone wall where I took what Ronnie calls “the fairy door.” I found myself in a lush, walled garden full of fairies with large trees, many plants and stone benches and a long stone table. The fairies (in their small, winged forms) called it one of their last strongholds on Earth.

They gathered around me, especially near my belly and blessed me for taking on all the incarnations and karmic weight that led to this most important lifetime and the sacred child I carry. They blessed the child within me, saying that he, like me, will be full of fairy magic, and to make sure he spends lots of time in nature so he would learn to access his power. They told me that he will be my teacher and guide, though I must also teach and guide him. They called him a son of the moon and the sun, a uniter of dualities and a light of truth and wisdom.

Then, taking on more human proportions, they once more laid their hands on me and blessed me. Then we sat down to a large banquet of fruits, cheeses and breads. I noticed there was no meat at the banquet, and asked if I should raise my child as a vegetarian. They responded that he will know his own path & that all I have to do is support and guide him when he feels lost.

After dining, we danced together as the sun set in the sky and the stars shone brightly above us. Then they told me I was to go back home & I came back to where I had grounded myself in front of my altar, feeling very peaceful and blessed.

Wisdom from the Goddess Aeronwen

lady of the lake 3 pictures, backgrounds and images

As I sat before my altar, intoning OM repeatedly, the image of a raven I have there seemed to come alive. I followed it as it flew through mist and over water, then over an ancient forest, where a dove rose up to meet it. The birds dove to the ground and my spirit followed. They perched on a large boulder while I looked around at the nearby cave, lake and surrounding forest, waiting to see what would reveal itself to me.

I didn’t wait long before a tall woman with long black hair, wearing a shining white dress appeared to me. She introduced herself as “The Lady of the Lake,” and I recognized her from a past-life flashback that I’d had earlier this year.

Let me break briefly from my description of this meditation to describe her and our relationship to you:
Aeronwen is a goddess of fate who determines which side wins in battles. She is sometimes associated with Agrona and Morrigan. The raven is sacred to her as is Glyndyfrdwy, Wales, where there is a shrine to her on the river Dee. The name of this location can be translated as “Water of the Goddess.” Allegedly, human sacrifices were offered to her through drowning.

In a vision I had earlier this year, it was revealed to me that many of my lifetimes ago, I was the daughter of a cheiftain, engaged to our tribe’s fiercest warrior who I loved passionately. We were engaged to be married, but our tribe (who lived near Aeronwen’s sacred site) and those around us and our way of life were threatened by Christians invading our lands. One night as I slept, Aeronwen appeared to me, and told me that I could single-handedly save my tribe, my father and my lover from the invaders – at least for a period of several decades, when my father would have passed on and my lover would have passed into old age. The only way this could come to pass, however, was if I sacrificed myself in the lake, allowing myself to drown. When I woke, I shared my dream with my father, and he agreed that it was a true vision, though the idea of my sacrifice saddened him deeply. Knowing I could save my people, I went to the lake and plunged in, forcing myself to let my body sink into the dark water. As I passed from that life, the goddess appeared brilliantly before me, leading me to the heavens.

So when she appeared to me in this recent meditation, I recognized her immediately. She asked me if I remembered meeting her before, and I responded that I did. She then directed me to sit before a small pool of water near the cave, where she wanted me to scry. At first, all I saw was my face and her’s over my shoulder, but then I saw the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where a seabird who’d landed there looking for scraps had tangled its wing in some plastic and couldn’t break free. Moved with compassion, I prayed for the bird’s freedom and watched as the plastic dissolved and the bird flew away. Then, the vision shifted and I saw a turtle lower down in the patch, swimming through the toxic water, looking for a safe place to go.

As I watched this, the goddess spoke to me, saying that I must not let go of my vision to change the world for the better or to allow myself to think that I am powerless to do so (as I’d been thinking just the day before this happened). She told me to remember that love and passion are the only things that will change the world for the better and that I must be as passionate about helping my human and animal families now as I was about saving my tribe when I sacrificed myself to her. Our animal friends, she said, are adapting as best they can, but they need help from humans to clean habitats, change laws and teach respect for all forms of life.

I thanked her for her wisdom and guidance and the scene disappeared from my mind’s eye and once more I was back in front of my altar.

Celebrate Wildness


Seal Island, Scotland

In meditation yesterday, I was led by one of my animal totems, the dolphin, to an island that most people would consider “deserted.” It was a wild place where only sea birds and seals lived… or so it seemed, until I was met by a a small fairy creature that looked like a mossy tree branch.

This fellow spoke to me saying that I should be careful not to lose my wildness or to associate wildness with uncontrollable behavior or self-destruction. Then he transformed into a very tall human-like, sage green figure with green hair and curling satyr horns. With a very grave face, he informed me that wildness – both in myself and in the Earth – need to be encouraged & fostered. He then left me alone to meditate on the wild nature of the island.

As I observed the birds, animals and the waves moving about the island I began to perceive that I had been thinking of wildness only in terms of its shadow side. The light side of wildness, which I observed there in meditation, included:

  • peaceful stillness;
  • the simple trust of creatures that everything will be provided for them;
  • change through gentle, constant repetition (as waves change the shoreline);
  • and joy in simply BEing and DOing as the inner self directs.
I came back to myself with the determination to foster this joyful wildness inside me and to make a point to touch nature more often – lying in the grass, walking through the leaves, leaning against/hugging trees and however else I can make contact with nature to keep myself in tune with Earth’s rhythms.

Love Is My Guiding Force

"Wonder" by Alex Grey

“All lovingly unfolds through time and space

Life constantly transforms, but in essence nothing changes

There is nothing to fear, there is only love

I am one with the Universe and stars

Love is my guiding force.”

– Toni Carmine Salerno
