My crystal talked to me!

I was never really that much into crystals. I’ve always been into working with plants and herbs, angels and divination methods such as oracle cards and rune stones and just good old-fashioned channeling without any use of of accessories. I have however always had a fascination with elementals and have communicated with elementals.

If you are reading this article it’s safe to assume that you know what elementals are, are aware of elementals in your surroundings, and may have had contact with elementals. I mean we’ve all had contact with elementals but I mean intentional contact with elementals. Crystals are also a part of the elemental realm, but somehow I was never really a crystal person. Many of my fellow intuitives have entire altars covered in crystals. Mine is pretty simple compared to some of the elaborate alters I’ve seen. I have some raw quartz and some sage and some candles and feathers and my oracle decks, rune stones, and a few decorative ornaments such as angels, dolphins and wolves and that’s pretty much it.

Apart from the raw quartz that I collected on a hike while still living in the Arizona desert (with permission from Gaia) the only crystals that I have are pieces of jewelry that I have only recently acquired in the last two or three years. All of these pieces of jewelry have been gifted to me. There’s only one piece of crystal jewelry that I have ever bought myself, and one of the few crystals that I have had for a very long time, actually the only one I’ve had for a very long time. And that is a tiny polished amethyst that I bought at a psychic fair when I was barely 17 years old. They say that the crystals you buy or receive as gifts are meant for you and nobody else, they carry energetic puzzle pieces that match you alone and nobody else. If a crystal ends up in your possession it’s because it chose you. Crystals are alive just like any other elemental that’s out there, just like the trees are alive, just like the ocean is alive, everything that is and has been part of nature carries the essence of source energy within it. Over the years I have worked with all kinds of energies, from nature spirits and spirit animals to archangels to cosmic guides and past and parallel life soul aspects.. it never dawned on me that I had never truly worked with my crystals, or ever considered communicating with them the way that I communicate with all my other spiritual guides, not until a few days ago.

These last couple of months I started wearing that little polished amethyst again on my necklace. I felt pulled towards it again and even talked about it in a moon circle that I am a part of. How after not wearing it for a very long time, I suddenly started wearing it again and how it felt right at the time. Like it was assisting me on some level. About a week ago while wearing the crystal around my neck I saw an image in my mind’s eye of the amethyst elemental. She showed herself to me and asked me to draw her portrait. I have been drawing all kinds of beings and now she requested a portrait so I was more than happy to. A few days later another image showed itself in my mind’s eye. I was absentmindedly doing laundry when suddenly I saw the amethyst fall off of the necklace on the street while I was riding my bike. The necklace still intact, even the ring that attached the stone to the chain was still there, just the crystal itself, was gone. I saw the exact street and instantly felt panic and resistance. I pushed the idea out of my head and immediately heard “it’s meant to happen, I have done my work with you and you will not find me again if you look for me, I will return to the earth, you will get a new amethyst and it will be a higher aspect of me which will suit you better in the future” so again I pushed the idea out of my head feeling lots of resistance and I went on with my day, doing laundry and other things, forgetting all about the little vision I had..

Fast forward 2 hours later to when I arrived at my client’s house, I look down and the amethyst is no longer there. The necklace was still intact, even the ring that attached the stone to the chain was still there, just the crystal itself, was gone, just like I was shown in my mind’s eye barely 2 hours earlier. I was so mad at myself for not listening to my intuition! “Maybe I could have prevented it if I just listened” I immediately thought. But the little voice in the back said “nope, this was meant to happen, you will get a new one and it will serve you better”.

I checked on my way back too though, of course I didn’t find it. And of course I heard it too saying “you won’t find me anymore, I’ve gone back to the earth, you don’t need me anymore” and I felt resistance again and anger. Then it said “why would you hold on to the old when you can embrace the new”.

This experience has been one that was needed. I have gained a whole new perspective on communicating with crystals and I am so thankful to source for providing me with this experience, and grateful for the time I was allowed to spend with the little polished amethyst and very grateful that she actually said goodbye before she left!

Tree transmission: Be yourself, wherever you may find yourself.

I met a tree today and his name was Edgar.  He was the guardian tree of the flank of the hill. It’s a hill full of trees, with on one side a playground, he was right next to the playground. He seemed kind of out of place, too majestic and tall and wide and strong..
He deserved to be somewhere higher on top of the hill, or further away from the playground..
edgarHe allowed me in his field and we had an energy exchange.
I was held by his vibration and allowed to hear his thoughts and feel his feelings.
His message was:

“It doesn’t matter where you are, what your surroundings are. Because you are still you, it doesn’t matter where you find yourself. It does not take away from your being, it does not take away from your sovereignty. It does not take away from your energy. Be who you are, regardless of where you are”

Even though he was right there, next to a big playground, he was majestic and his energy was profound and left a deep impression. He channeled forth a deep Mother Gaia vibration that I have not felt even from trees in the forest that are surrounded with nothing but nature.. this “playground tree” held more of The Mother’s deep primal frequency than did any of the trees I’ve met in “the real” forest lately.

It was a beautiful exchange and a reminder for myself to be myself wherever I may find myself, because your true nature will always prevail..no matter your surroundings.

How manifestation cycles link into the wheel of the year: Imbolc and the phase before the last phase of manifestation: materialization

For those who are new to the wheel of the year and pagan holidays. Aka earth-holidays or basically days of specific meaning in the cycle of a year based on the seasons and specific astrological events. The days are usually based on the northern hemisphere so for those of you living below the equator, you celebrate those days the other way around.

The first of February, Imbolc [Old Irish i mbolg meaning in the belly, a time when sheep began to lactate and their udders filled and the grass began to grow] is the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It’s also called the beginning of spring. And let that be exactly why it makes such a great metaphor for manifestation and law of attraction work.

xxpict2706_watermark

Because when you look outside where I live, there is still frost everywhere. On the grass, on the streets, on cars.. Yet something new is beginning underneath the surface and it is definite, nature doesn’t doubt itself. Nature just follows the flow of the universe and delivers. There is no doubt, not one year, that the spring equinox wouldn’t be filled with blossoms and warmer weather and budding flowers. Even though now it’s still invisible to the eye. It is already there. Already “in the vortex” as Abraham-Hicks would say, of Gaia. Therefor it can not not happen. Just like how we will plant a seed in our manifestation process and then we have to sit with it for a while and water it, feed it nourishing energy, confidence and underneath the surface the materialization will follow.

So tomorrow as a symbolic way to celebrate Imbolc maybe remind yourself of the seeds you planted. Send positive intentions and energy towards them, have you been watering them? And giving them nourishment? Send love to your energetic seeds so they may soon materialize!

How will you celebrate tomorrow?

spirit animals & animal messengers

Steven Farmer, author and earth magic expert calls spirit animals or totem animals often power animals.

What is a Power Animal?

Power animals are spirit guides in animal form, valuable allies who can help you navigate through life’s challenges and transitions. You can turn to these perceptive and trustworthy oracles for advice and counsel on any questions or concerns, for they’re exceptional teachers who will help you learn about both the spirit and the natural world. Working with them on a regular basis will enhance your personal life and expand your spiritual capacities immensely.

Power animals can appear in meditations, visions, dreams, shamanic journeys, or on the earth in their physical form. They can be mammals, birds, or reptiles; and even so-called mythical creatures such as unicorns or dragons can be power animals, although they have no physical representations in the material world. However, since spirit animals’ power is drawn from their instinctual and wild nature, it’s uncommon for purely domesticated animals such as pets to be part of this group.

The source of power for your animal spirit guide won’t just be a single animal, but the entire species. For instance, if your power animal is Bear, it won’t be just one particular bear, but an animal spirit guide that’s representative of the entire species of bears. Consequently, you’ll probably develop a greater appreciation for all bears, and likely extend that care and respect to the animal kingdom as a whole. If Dolphin is your power animal, for example, your love and appreciation will likely go out to all creatures of the sea and naturally expand to include those of the land and the air. Your animal will also teach you to use this power compassionately, to heal and empower yourself and others.

The good news is that we can recover our power animal or even discover a new one by opening our hearts, minds, and souls to this notion, Your power animal may come to you in meditations, visions, dreams, or shamanic journeys. If you’ve had a particular affinity or attraction for an animal, it’s most likely this is your power animal. Just recently someone wrote and asked what I thought her power animal was. She went on to describe how hawks have shown up for her much of her life, especially in the past few weeks, and was wondering if this could perhaps be her power animal. I wrote back and basically confirmed what she already knew, that Hawk was her main animal spirit guide, or power animal.

Your power animal may leave you at some point, even if you’ve paid attention to her over the years. Usually that means that the relationship has served its purpose, and another power animal either is or will be coming into your life. I’ve observed how these spirit guides will enter into our lives at a time when we most need their particular expression of spiritual power. For instance, if you’re moving into a position of leadership, Cougar spirit may very well leap into your life as power animal, helping you with confidence and clarity in your leadership roles. If you’re going through a major transformative process with big changes, you may find Snake spirit or Butterfly coming into your life as a power animal.

Another interesting facet is that often your power animal is reflective of your personality characteristics. For instance, Rachel is slight of build, energetic, with a tendency to move very quickly, often juggling several tasks at once, flitting from one to the other. It’s no accident that her power animal turned out to be Hummingbird. Gary is a fairly large man, gentle by nature, yet very capable of standing up for himself or for others as needed. No one messes with him. No surprise that his power animal is Bear.

Other questions that come up are about cats or dogs being power animals. Generally domesticated animals can’t be power animals because they’ve lost much of their wildness and are removed from the natural world. Likewise, some traditions believe that insects are to be excluded from being power animals because of their size and nature. Generally true, however in my book Power Animals, Dragonfly and Butterfly both argued vehemently about being included, so I caved and included them. I see now the wisdom of that, as they both offer unique types of power.

Yet another question that comes up on occasion is about mythological or etheric animals, such as dragons or unicorns. Although some would insist that they exist in third dimensional reality, it really doesn’t matter whether they do or not. If you believe they do, then they do. Any of these so-called mythological animals can certainly be your power animal. The only disadvantage is that they’re not commonly seen in the physical world as are other kinds of animals.

This is a highly personal and specialized relationship with an animal spirit guide. It’s not one you choose in the usual sense of the word. It’s more of a soul-to-soul connection, your soul bonding with the soul—or more accurately the oversoul—of the animal. The relationship is one to be nurtured and attended to on a regular basis, and if done, will last a number of years.

(excerpts taken from Power Animals: How to Connect with Your Animal Spirit Guides)

I personally believe that insects can absolutely be messengers. There is also a slight difference that I would like to point out between a spirit/power animal and an animal messenger. An animal messenger is simply an archetypal manifestation of source energy with a message pertaining to your situation in that very moment. Much like numerology appearing in your life (11:11, 444, etc.) an animal might have a certain meaning attached to it and appear in your life with a message during a certain time or in a certain situation. Whereas power animals are the same as spirit guides who guide us for a long time, if not our entire incarnation.

I have had the messenger of ladybug show up for me this week, and it was undeniable because it came at a time where I had lots of questions and some fears coming up. 2 days ago my daughter found a dead ladybug in the couch.. I immediately thought “what is the message behind this?” however, I dismissed it as just some weird thing that happened and went on with my day. And then within 24 hours I saw another, this time alive ladybug crawling on the wall at a client’s house in the bathroom. This wouldn’t be so strange were it not – 2 degrees Celsius outside and December. Then later that afternoon when I got home my gaze was drawn to a pin on the wall holding up the Christmas cards, that had a ladybug on it. Something I had not noticed before.

So whenever an animal is showing itself frequently. Or whenever you see an animal in an odd context or behaving unusual. It could very well be a spirit animal or a messenger!

Be like trees.

In my facebook group circle of fae alchemy  I write a weekly tree message, usually I keep the group separate from the rest of this page, but today on the shortest day of the year and the full moon, an event that very rarely happens at the same time, I wanted to share this message from this beautiful pine tree that’s outside where I work.

Today we celebrate rebirth. Winter holidays are in origin about rebirth. Christianity adopted the birth part but in essence it’s about the rebirth of the sun and the days getting longer again after the 21st. The trees are old. Some of them several hundreds of years old. They’ve been around for many of these yearly cycles and they stand tall through it all and remain the same but allow themselves to grow and be reborn in a way continuously. They follow the flow of life that goes through their branches and leaves and flow with the changes of life. We need to be like trees. Trees also form a network of love. They pick up on trees within their “network” that need energy or are in distress and they send love energy to them. Without ever being without energy themselves. They channel it from the earth and have a never ending source of it. Be like trees send out love to those around you this holiday season. But always remain steadfast and stable and connected to your own energy source of pure love energy. Give yourself and from what you have left, give those around you. Flow with the ever changing energy stream of life while standing tall. Be like trees.
