Shape Is Intention

Many times I have written about the Language and Direction of Adornments. This concerns which way a Cameo should face for specific intentions, on which finger to wear a Rose Quartz, which pocket to carry aventurine in for abundance, etc. What stones, on which side, for what reason. 

I am going to explore this topic further this month but I am also going to go deeper into the world of Crystal Shapes; natural and carved. Sacred Geometry, Crystal Structure, Chemical Compounds of Quartz, and Crystallography. 

Let us look at an example of Rose Quartz. We know that Rose Quartz is best worn on the chest but can serve us in different ways by wearing the stone on the right or left. 

Most people believe that Rose Quartz draws love, this is true as long as the stone is used properly. A Rose Quartz serves our heart’s best interest. Many do not realize that the stone also repels false love. A talisman that wards off love lies masked in truth. 

The Crystal System of a Rose Quartz is Hexagonal. Its chemical formula is SiO₂. This makes Rose Quartz a Seeker Transformer crystal. A Crystal designed to help you seek out what it is you desire and transform your reality with this energy when it is obtained. These energies can be manipulated by the actual shape of the crystal; natural or carved, and how you wear the crystal. (As discussed above) 

Let’s say you obtained a Rose Quartz in the shape of a Star Tetrahedron/Merkaba. This shape is for meditation but can also be very effective in stone-throwing. Either way, exercising this energy would cause an unwanted love to go away. Maybe if you were trying to get over a person you were in a relationship with or if you are having issues with starting anew. Rose Quartz in Merkaba wards off old unwanted love, even if it is wanted somewhere but you know it is best to end it. The Merkaba knows it is best too. Let’s say you were trying to seal a current love relationship to you; heart-shaped rose quartz would be in order. This is no guarantee, but you are putting it out into the universe that this is the one. A Rose Quartz Pyramid is in order for self-love or helping yourself be strong and say no when people try to use your energy, physical, or material being in a negative way. A Rose Quartz Snub Cube (or Icosahedron) has to do with trust and the lack thereof one or both people have in a current relationship. This shape can also help bring about trust when it is hard for you to trust. Healing the broken trust of the past. A Rose Quartz Crystal Skull can let you know the actual speak of the significant other; maybe their heart is not all in or maybe they aren’t true. The Skull knows and will guide you. 

Shapes combined with language and direction can exercise the energy of the crystal. Join me on Patreon for an in-depth post about how to know what crystal speaks to which direction and easy ways to understand, memorize, and exercise such energies. 

Thank you so much! Happy Week’s End!

The Metaphysical Properties and Uses of Garnet

This blog is sung for the metaphysical properties of red garnets. There are many different verses for different garnet colors and added verses for the shades of red. This is the chorus that repeats for all types of red. 

Garnets are much more than so much of what I see that is written about them. Garnet has to do with emotion and words that are emotionally charged. A tie that binds blood oaths and undying love. So many walls are held together by the same energy as garnet. So many blankets are woven from garnet’s warm fabric. A stone of honor; the honor of your word and the honor of your bloodline. 

Garnet’s energy succors with anger and dissolving resentment. No need to hang on to anything. The rain today washed us clean. The garnets sang to us in our boats as we survey the flooded lands of our former hatred. Garnets for days. Hatred burned. 

Garnet is a talisman for protection against dreams of horror and night terrors. Memories of this side that our eyes have seen, or visions from the other side. Never before looked upon but playing in our minds just the same, are all burned by the fire of garnet. 

Garnet is well combined with Onyx and Amber. Like Onyx and Amber, garnet has memory, but of a different kind. The first stone used in animal speak healing. A romantic notion without complication. A dark stone that radiates closeness, tied kinship, amity. Among the most ancient of gems,

Garnet uses destructive energy to make way to your creative energy. Burning the field that becomes a great medicine forest. The great destroyer to make way as the great creator. If you fear change, tread lightly on Garnet’s path. 

An important stone, a one of the great seven, garnet gives you the ability to maintain sanity on this creative plane. 

Intense feelings rise but become useful and leaves the most awaited gifts at your front door. Garnet will bring you the awareness of fire and with meditation and concentration can help with DNA activation. 

Specific cuts of garnet have varied gifts. Square, Rounds, Ovals, etc. all give specific energy. Join me on Patreon for an extended look into Garnet. I will talk more about dreaming Garnet, stone bundling, concentrating, cleanings, charging, the memory of garnet, and shapes/language direction.

Golden Healer Crystal Muse

There are many reasons why Golden Healer speaks to me. To state the obvious, my maternal side is from Quartz country. Our family blood is woven into the Salem Plateau. The Earth rock and soil literally are the same as our blood. These family bonds are as strong as tree roots, and they are a part of every step we walk, securing the ground under our feet. Climbing like a twisted ribbon to the cellar of the Appalachian Mountains. This stretch of land is specifically named, The Black Mountains. Like all land, this land told us stories, and those stories gave way to an understanding of the land’s rock within. This is Earth’s most Ancient Crystalline rock; our kin, lived and died there. Our Ancestors literally live there within the soil. Our passed-on Kin giving their DNA to the rock. Parts of us belonging to the rock forever. When this is your root life force, you cannot help but to know the ways of crystal speak. Even before any of us could understood people, we understood rocks. There are methods of feeding crystals that involves blood and soil. When this happens, there is not just a way for the crystal energy to move in your favor, there is a way for you to become a part of the crystal nature. When generations of your DNA is buried into this rock, you are eternally joined with it. Crystals from this area know me and I know them.

Not all Golden Healers are from this area of land. The term “Golden Healer” to some, is for crystals that ONLY come from Quartz Country. I am a little more lax with some types and I am willing to call some of them all Golden healers, but there is a difference that does set them all apart. The truth is in the chemistry, then the location.

There are a few different “types” of Golden Healers and then there are crystals that are identified as such but are not at all. The internet is a cluster of “copy and Paste” mixed with checkered facts. Some really great sources and some cherry picked until the facts are unrecognizable to the subject. The information on Golden Healer seems to be quite scattered on the internet. Please research carefully if you are specific about your Golden Healers.

First and most importantly, what is a Golden Healer? There is a specific “type” that are considered “true golden healers” and other’s considered “chemically golden healer” or sometimes I have seen labels like “Mineral Quartz iron oxide.” Strangely enough, I have also seen Yellow Quartz, Fire Quartz (Hematoid), Tangerine Quartz, and Limonite stained Quartz labeled as Golden Healers. They are not.

A Golden Healer, to some, can only come from the Ozarks. Others do except the other places they are found. The truth is, the Ozark versions have higher levels of a specific type of iron oxide level. This is why Crystal workers of all kind favor it and some have become a bit elitist about them. The greasy iron oxide coating is grown within the crystal itself. It cannot be removed with an acid bath or completely polished away. It is always.

Other Golden Healers found in other places on this Earth may or may not have the same formula in measurements but all the ingredients are present, so to me, this is still a Golden Healer. When the crystal structure is off, it seems to come down to a matter of opinion. Whether you wish to call them “True Golden Healers” or just “Golden Healers” is completely up to you. There is a noticeable price difference between the Ozark versions of these beauties and others from all over the world. Interesting enough, many clear Quartz now coming from the Ozarks were once very light color golden healers. I always say to all, ‘always check your sources with a fine toothed comb.’ Artificially irradiated crystals are a little annoying to my energy field and I wish the world would leave all of this perfection alone.

I’ve heard many describe a Golden Healer’s properties in these terms, sometimes exact… “It’s golden and it’s a healer. There it is. Master Healer.”

I am here to tell you that it isn’t that simple. Sometime ago, I wrote several posts about “Teacher Quartz” and their relationship to us. Following up with a few posts on “Companion Quartz.” There is a kinship there but the Golden Healer can fall under the eye view of “Muse Quartz” and “Healer Quartz.” They are givers of healing through ancestry, art, and “SkitSkater” … an old Ozark term for when the young kids say “It Gives Life.”

Golden Healer can raise your vibration and bring you to new levels by uprooting you out of old systems. Linking you to your ancestors (color Yellow therapy 3) and healing with their lessons and love. Healing that you can also find through artistic outlets. That exact feeling you get when something awakens your mind. That “Life” feeling. Golden Healer inspires it daily within you.

Yellow Aragonite Metaphysical Properties and Uses.

People often ask me about my obsession with Yellow Aragonite. I have had two makers tell me they don’t use it because it doesn’t “sell.” I also know it isn’t highly desired but for the true crystal lover, it cannot be dismissed. I use it often to honor it but I also use it to encourage awareness of this stone for people that haven’t “seen.” This stone has a secret life, like many stones do, but this life is going to be exercised in a much greater detail than other types of Aragonite. The Yellow Aragonite is a power stone that will help recreate this world. 

This stone is a must for the Tarot Card reader and the interpreter of symbolic language. Yellow Aragonite is the reflection of sun on the water and the cell phone number to the gods. All canvas open to interpretation is painted on Yellow Aragonite. 

A very soft energy that is easy to work with, yellow aragonite speaks to us gently and understandably, a stone that loves all animals especially humans. 

A stone to help you with self acceptance and burns away all self doubt that lingers in the darkest corners of our minds. 

As an “Increaser” stone, it can be added to any concoction to make the flame higher. ‘Adds to’ and ‘Amps up’ any stone bundle combo. I highly suggest adding it together with citrine for a power punch of self assurance and happiness. 

A wonderful stone for massage because this stone “stimulates” and “increases” all thought and action. Not for “Stone Eating” or elixirs. (Remember stone eating is not actually eating the stone… it is the term used for the divination technique. Do not eat stones) (A large post coming up about this on Patreon)

Best worn as a necklace and secondly as earrings. Never wear below the knees (toe ring, anklet, in a shoe, in a sock, etc.) This stone should always be worn above the ribcage’s end.  

Yellow Aragonite is the main Hair Energy stone. Yes, it can help you grow your mane out but it is really much more than that. Hair is not only something to style, it is the “antennas” of the body. Tying to the Zero Point Field and serving as our “cellular up” to another plane of consciousness. A higher energy. When I think of this stone I always think of ‘The Creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo. 

The stone of Hair Stylists and Painters, yes they go hand in hand, a perfect talisman for anyone who has to create something from nothing. A thought into a tangible reality that all can see and touch. 

Be careful where you buy all Aragonite. They remember things like the hair remembers. Reprogram often and clear every cycle with cold water. 

More discussion about this stone will be on my Patreon soon. Concentrations, more uses, clearing & old world techniques harnessed by folklore coming up. 

Happy Week’s Start to all and may it be filled with new hope and renewed energy. Last Quarter is nigh.

In Bloom

I have been writing a lot lately. Exploring the maze of anxiety’s complex design. Recently, another person’s energy got the best of me and it left me in many states of wonder. I usually am not affected by too many opinions or words held by others. We are all on such unique journeys and I understand that people have things they are working through. I have many paths that I navigate with my trusty yard sheers (hedge trimmers) and nothing brings more joy to me than removing dead things. The things that no longer make sense. The things that do not serve me. The garden in my mind should be the way I desire it, but it should also be fruitful. It should flower, nourish my soul, bring helpful seeds to others. What a joyful thing in this life to see flowers and LIFE giving vibrations come from seeds you gave to someone else. These holy gifts are real and we take them with us after this life. 

As for this energy that I encountered, make no hesitation that I not only expelled it, but I exercised it. As I have said many times, your left hand must be just as strong as your right. When someone shames others for their family, their background, and the identity this world has pressed upon them, well, there is no room in my life for such pestilence. No one can tell you who they think you are. No one can shame you for your true identity or things that cannot be changed.  No one should oppress you. No one should make you less than they are. There is no lesser or greater. I don’t like people who stand up high and liquify people into a measuring cup. When someone uses their energy, keyboard, or actually tells you that you are nothing… remember you are nothing to them… THEM. They reflect their nothingness onto you and hope you will accept it. Because really, you are everything to them and they need to take you down. Down to the dirt… as I have always said…. 

“See, a seed can be planted too far down and be surrounded by darkness for a long time. If it sprouts, you wouldn’t believe all the tall greens around it that may try to take its light so it won’t grow. Sometimes weeds step right in and try to choke it. Then as it catches the light and rises, a few will gossip quietly and wish for its death. Roll their eyes. Ya know, all that hateful stuff. Then when that plant grows taller than all those light hogs and weeds, you would think World War III had broken out. That’s when people lose their minds. Show their truest selves. A personal attack for just growing and being. Sure you have a ton of friends growing with ya but there are always those other guys in the mix, all angry. Then, when that flower blooms… those other guys are still green with jealousy. Hating you for how people may love your bloom. They say things like, “She didn’t always look like that!” .. “She wasn’t a flower 15 years ago.” … “She thinks she is so special.” … “I know where she came from, the dirt, she is nothing.” 

You’re right about one thing, I did come from the dirt and now I bloom every season.”

Cats and Crystals

I know it has been a very long time since I wrote an Animal Medicine post. I appreciate the emails with requests for stones, books, and all the medicines. All of you are so amazing and I am honored to get to interact with each of you. Cannot tell you how much I appreciate your kindness and support through the years. 

I noticed that I hadn’t posted for years about cat circles, interjectory energies gifted into thoughts by cats, or prophetic dream or dream states brought on by specific animal energies such as the ones brought on by cats. 

Nicodemus, my oldest cat, is definitely my “anxiety” cat. When I can’t sleep he jumps up on the bed and lays on my chest of stomach. His deep purring puts me to sleep within moments. Once I am asleep his work is done. He leaves. There have been times I was worried or unsure. In these times, he is always there. He, like Holden, both have absorbed a lot over the years in protection of me and my household. Cats do not neutralize or dispel energy. They do take it between the worlds and on their messenger routes. It becomes baggage, it can become sickness. Especially for sticky indoor cats. As humans there is nothing we can do to stop them from their born nature. Cats protect energetically while Dogs protect physically. I have a story for you that happened over 2 years ago that would floor you. That is for another day though. 

For now, remember it is important to protect our babes. Clearing a Cat’s energy can add years to their lives and well beings. It can change them but only in a good way. As I have posted in the past about Earth Medicine being positive productive without backward cause. 

Have you ever noticed cats loves to lay on crystals and rocks? You would think they would want something soft and plush to lay on. I leave a very large 20 pound crystal on the floor upstairs for them to lay on it they need to concentrate or expel before I can help clear them. 

I use a blue kyanite wand most of the time. My cats also love selenite. Take the wand and start at the cat’s crown, taking the wand down their spine, to the end of their tail. Then under their bodies on the ribcage and abdominal area. Sometimes they want contact with the crystal and sometimes not. Petting your cat with a crystal can’t hurt but I leave it up to the cat. Clearing your Cat is similar to clearing your crystals. Absorb and release.

Smoky Quartz Metaphysical Properties and Uses

The Heart of Veracity is Smoky Quartz, truth is embedded in each gaze. As the dark slowly lifts, it gives way to a clear picture. Drawing the truth out of a situation, especially where it is needed for you to prevail, is the gift given by Smoky Quartz. Their surface can seem dark and listless, but upon a closer look, you see an inner light. Like the bottom of a bog pool. That shimmer of life that lives underneath. A summoner to find it. A hidden power that rises. 

Smoky Quartz is a stone of the mental plane; being the governing power over concentration, surface associations, specific stages of trauma, and specific dream association. 

This being said, Smoky Quartz is a way to tie the mental and physical together to manifest a constant dream, goal, or repetitive wish. The Smoky Quartz is a seeker crystal, by this, it naturally attunes itself to the wearer. Making pathways where you specifically want to go and leading you there as a personal guide. Smokies are also transformers, helping you grow and transform on your journey. This is the ultimate “goal” stone. 

Paired with Fluorite, it can dissolve fatigue brought on by burn out. Also helping with endurance for the long journey ahead. 

All aspects of concentration fall under the reign of Smoky Quartz. Focus, short attention spans, the ability to absorb what has been learned, and all attention disorders. A helper in paying attention the things in our lives we tend to not see because our attention is transfixed elsewhere. 

Surface associations such as communications and making yourself understood. Showing up in self defense when other people try to tell you who THEY think you are. A must for those who tend to over analyze past conversations with anxiety and distress. Those who replay things over and over to no avail adding self doubt into the mix. Smoky helps refocus away from these issues. Also helps refocus the energies put into melancholy and worry about uncertainty. An aid, setting a warm overcast on the cold coasts of loneliness. 

A helper in healing from past traumas and the onset of depression and anxiety from said traumas. In this area, smoky quartz is a helper stone and must be paired with a lead stone for the specific trauma. 

Smoky Quartz is the lead stone and only stone for lawsuits and justice. Pulling the truth and setting records straight. Paired with pyrite, the duo can expose liars in your everyday life. To you and sometimes themselves.  

Smoky Quartz also falls under a very exclusive category that has only a membership of seven. Smoky is one of the Seven Ancient Stones of the Gods. Playing an extensive roll in antiquity and lore.  Over many years of compiling old stories about this stone, I am taken aback by the rich catalog of lore about Smoky Quartz. Not just in one region but in places all over the world. One of the Seven that speaks to people in this new world, as much as the old.

Cat Watcher of the Ways

Wednesday night, I was visited in my sleep, in a lucid dream. My visitor was grand. She came into my room, not through the door, but appearing after the entrance. Walking slowly, her antlers scraped the ceiling. Pieces of the damaged surface paint fell at her feet and grew into baby deers. Licking their new bodies. Becoming to their new shape. She stops but the scraping sound continues as she stands at the foot of my bed holding her sceptre. Only one side of her is brightly visible where the half moonlight shined through my window. The dark edges of her detail on the other side were incomplete. I am sure she is Elen of the Ways. Is it weird that I am sleeping but watching her? Not at all.

The scraping noise stopped. She looked down at me as I sleep and this movement was like a call to the fabric of being. I rose upwards and realized I was blue and translucent. I looked behind me and my body was sleeping. She held her hand out to me and I reached for it. I suddenly felt myself pushed back into my body. I woke up and my cat Nicodemus was laying on my chest. He wouldn’t leave me, which is odd because he isn’t clingy. He put his weight on me. His purrs said, “Sleep.” It smelled like salt. The crashing of waves was in the distance fading.

I can see through the deer’s eyes as they frolic through the grass. I see the baby deer in a large brush, looking at his mother before they sleep under the moon. I now see through the deer’s eyes again. His mother says, “Sleep.”

Spelling

I am going to go down a road that I never really travel down. Rarely. The years of 1993 and 1994 were red lettered years in my life. You can truly see everything that I am now because of these years. The events catalog, to this day, sections of my personality in the same way a table of contents identify   chapters to a book. My becoming nurtured by the care and tending of these years. 

This was the year that I had an understanding of the left & right that coincide with the spiritual world and the physical world. In the physical world, when we want someone to STOP or when defending ourselves, we naturally raise our dominate hand with our palm facing out. Stop. This is also the hand we “give” with. We give direction, we hand an object to someone, we pay for items, etc. We are dominate in giving. 

In the spiritual world our subordinate hand is the hand we receive with. What we receive in energy we give physically . When someone attacks us physically we use our dominate hand. When someone attacks us energetically, many make the mistake in thinking their dominate hand is the hand to stop the attack with. This is incorrect. You receive with your subordinate hand, no matter if it is given or thrown, you MUST refuse and END the action with your subordinate hand. You must choose what you receive.  

“Little dear one, Is it always just love and light?

Brightlings always make sure your left hand is a strong as your right…”

I am right handed. If someone physically was walking toward me, I would raise my right hand as a gesture to ask them to stop. If someone threw energy at me, good or bad, I would receive it or decline it with my left hand. This also paints a clear picture of how to wear stones, their directions and language all come to key. 

Now, about the ring… In 1993 my Grandmother gave me a very “real” book. There were all those fluffy magic books in the 90s that I had read… then there was this book. Finally, a book that appealed to our darker nature. Shadows no longer collected dust but I learned quickly that they must be exercised the right way. The left isn’t really dark but it can be seen as such. This is because of outcomes experienced by people who didn’t learn enough about the room they play in, before they turned off the light. Then they tried to continue their play in the dark. Tripping over furnishings and not finding what you are looking for is not the fault of the lighting condition or the light switch itself. Know your surroundings, know where you play. It is sometimes made dark by the misunderstanding, but those who have night vision do not see it as dark.

In this gifted book, it always reminded us about the importance of ritual jewelry. I was well versed in this already but I did not have any rings with my my name or intention written on them. As you know, you must write your name on your jewels and tools during any ritual. Not the name you have been given in the physical world but the name you were given or gave yourself for ritual. The name the spirits know you by. The name no one else in the physical knows except those in your Klatch and family community. The way your name is known in the spirit world is much like how your power animal and guide is named. No one knows your guides name except you and should never be given as long as you live. Anyone you gave your other name to, in perfect love and trust, that ends up misusing it will find their guides gone. They will see the backs of any spirit that was ever inclined to work with them. The name is so important. The name is title of your book. 

I designed my first ritual ring and it was the Spell Ring. Exact in every way you see it here. The first had my “name” on the top and the second had a word of protection on the top just like the Spell Rings released today. At that time, I was just entering my teens, I was not able to fully make my design myself. To help, my Grandmother took me to a jeweler to help me manifest this into reality. Now, 26 years later, I manifest them into reality for you. 

The top of the ring simply says, “END”. This is a power of protection and a strengthening of your Left hand (or subordinate hand.) An exercise in restraint, protection, and ending a current. The word END and STOP both have the same meaning and are used interchangeably in this practice. The ring also features a septagram and specific talisman as a cross combination to protect the wearer and teach their hand how to receive positively and energentically.  

Many Bright Blessings friends and all of my love. Happy Week’s end!

Lapis Lazuli Metaphysical Properties and Uses

Let’s talk about Lapis Lazuli. I mean really talk about it. Not the copy and paste “This stone is good for… etc etc.” kind of talk. Let’s talk like there isn’t a like button. Too many times copy and paste is the fall back for show and too many times a stone’s properties get lost behind trends. Let us run full speed up against it and experience the collision reverberate within us. Let us listen as we truly hear Lapis Lazuli’s Crystal Speak. 

Lapis Lazuli is related to the essence of all that exists inside you aside from the physical. Your breathe, your soul, your  being. This stone serves as a talking device between the flesh and spirit. It is the vocal cord crystal of the Earth and the vocal cord crystal of your personal truth. It can find the “True Self”, when the true self sleeps. Do you believe your true self is the self that systematically rises to alarms and works the clock daily? Do you believe your true self is the one who is tired? Marathoning Netflix? No. This is not your true self. Your true self sleeps. Where does this self sleep? In the night sky of lapis. Dreaming of how to touch the ground. 

Lapis relates to the third and fourth chakra; third eye and throat. Aligning the voice and conscious awareness is the key to finding the self in the sleeping abyss. All memory revisited and all speechless moments broken for speak. 

A stone relating to attentiveness and being alert; when you know something wicked this way comes… Lapis is your lighthouse to shore. No wicked wave of the night can crush your boat to the deep. A stone to be worn around people you are unsure about. An unknown Frenemy will be revealed. A liar cannot vocalize their deceit without breaking their skill.

Being a filter stone, Lapis will clear the path of obstacles, giving you a clear vision of your goal at the other side of the journey and how to achieve it. Filters also help us remove the the clouds giving us a bright sky view of life. There are times when life ties us to the negative and lapis is the upbeat cup of coffee that gives us that pep in our step to get us back on track. 

Lapis also relates to the ego.. This is the stone of fame. Recognition from your work, social status, social media, publications, and if you have a desire for being “known” this is the stone. Good for social structure settings like school or social clubs. Just remember that Lapis polishes the Ego, what you truly are will be high shined. 

Lapis projects the inner self in all facets, no matter if the self lives in a darker place. All truth and intention come to life. 

There are many types of Lapis and each has its levels. From the most commonly known Lapis Lazuli, Denim, and Green to the less common names such as Russian or Siberian, Persian, and Chilean. All of these types have the properties above with added variants depending on the type. There will be another blog about these variations soon. 

Take a deep breath, and realize, this magic essence of life is the manifestation of Lapis. Our breath is blue.
