Natural Stone Energy: The Red Color Rays

Modern-day living equates to one thing – busy! Most of us feel that we are up and running all day long, collapsing in the evening with the clear knowledge that we will start this all over again the following day.

What if there was a way to gain a boost of energy, confidence, and stability by simply carrying a natural stone or wearing it in a piece of jewelry?

The answer is YES – there is!

THE RED COLOR RAY STONES provide a beautiful service on the planet by giving us boosts of physical energy, confidence and calm, and emotional stability.

Recently, in a podcast recording with Kimberli Soulretriever Ridgeway, you may have heard me discuss different natural stones and some of their healing properties. If you missed it, here is the link, and you will hear Kimberli’s favorites and the stones I always have on me or in my purse!

Today, we are turning our attention to RED STONES and how they work with our physical 3D issues here on Earth.

Color Ray RED – expressed through RED STONES:

  • Ruby
  • Red Coral
  • Rhodocrosite
  • Garnet
  • Red/Pink Tourmaline (Rubellite/Elbaite)
  • Red Beryl (Bixbite)
  • Red Jasper

RUBY – This amazing stone brings us emotional stability and healing. The Red Ray energy is focused through this stone through the crystalline matrix of corundum. Red ray energy gathers on the emotional subtle body level and creates a two-fold effect: assistance with opening to Divine Love in the heart, and, bridging the emotional body to the physical body. Another quality that Ruby anchors for us is intensity, vividness (in daily living & dreams) and massive amounts of Light to chase away darkness in our hearts.

Ruby vibrates to the number 3; the sign of the Trinity.

RED CORAL – Mystic communications is the heart of Coral with an alignment to achieving one’s goals. This element from the sea (not a mineral stone, but often grouped with stone energies) brings us in direct contact with Spiritual Masters in the higher realms who provide conscious and subconscious wisdom teachings. With an activation of the root chakra, there is dedicated harmony with the manifestation of desired goals in life. I love this powerhouse energy and I wear red coral daily.

Red Coral vibrates to the master number 22 (unlimited potential of mastery), and also specifically to the number 4, which represents grounding and the four directions.

rhodochrosite large

RHODOCHROSITE – This beautiful stone is often found in the pink family, but it has deep red coloring as well. This stone pulsates and emanates the LOVE energy; specifically deep sacred love of the Earth, of life, and for our emotional journey. This stone works quickly by energizing the root, sacral and heart chakra, and restores balance to our physical and subtle bodies. This stone is powerful and the more you wear it, the quicker the transformation to balance with noticeable energy boosts!

Rhodochrosite vibrates to the number 4, which grounds us and provides the stability of the four directions on the earth.

Garnet rock

GARNET – An ancient Mayan favorite, Garnet enhances our internal fire bringing speedy transformation and tons of creative energy! This stone is known for its ability to extract negative energy from the chakras and increase revitalizing energy through the spinal column. Bringing order to chaos in one’s life is the mantra of this red gem.

Garnet vibrates to the number 2, which holds the union of masculine & feminine energies in balance and alignment.

Pink Tourmaline
Pink Tourmaline; Bing image

RED/PINK TOURMALINE – In general, Tourmaline balances the left & right sides of the brain to enhance creative efforts. Red Tourmaline (Rubellite) activates the root chakra to stimulate vitality through the physical body. This connects with the heart chakra and brings more ‘loving consciousness’ to daily living. Pink Tourmaline (Elbaite) awakens the crown chakra and heart chakra, making known the highest levels of Universal Love. It promotes enthusiasm and freedom of thought which increases peace and ease.

Red Tourmaline vibrates to the numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5. Independence, balanced duality, groundedness, and enhanced activity are all encompassed here!

Pink Tourmaline vibrates to the number 9, and the master number 99. Nine helps us recognize the end of phases and cycles of energy, and the master number 99 brings understanding of the greater Divine Plan with self-awareness at its core.

Red Beryl cluster
Red Beryl (Bixbite); Bing image

RED BERYL – Red Beryl is also known as Bixbite with a brilliant red color. Star energies pulsate through this stone, opening the Kundalini pathways and activating the heart chakra toward sacred respect for all life forms. This is a quick enhancer of energy and power and brings with it higher cooperation within relationships.

Red Beryl vibrates to the number 8, enhancing abundance and flow in our lives!

red-jasper
Red Jasper; Bing image

RED JASPER – Jasper is known to ancient indigenous tribes as the ‘Shaman Stone’ that assists in astral travel and protects mankind from dangers. Red Jasper specifically works with the deep level of our Dreams, reworking them in our mind so we begin to understand the importance of the messages. This is a gradual progression and ‘taking responsibility’ stone that is a perfect complement to other red stones that provide us a jolt of energy for expansive projects.

Red Jasper vibrates to the number 6, enhancing our generosity, compassion and desire for community service.

Take your time and explore the energy feelings you receive from these gorgeous red stones! Combining a couple of them in a necklace or bracelet is even better.

Next month – the color ORANGE and the color ray Orange through natural stones!

I am a resource gatherer, and I love to give credit where it is due! Here are a couple helpful books where the above information was gleaned, and I know you will want them in your library too. Gemisphere Luminary, by Michael Katz; and Love is in the Earth, by Melody.

 

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space

Springtime! ‘Tis the season to clean out our closets, plant new outdoor gardens, release clothing and odds n’ ends that no longer serve our greater goals, and overall to feel ‘Lighter’ and more energized!

Do you have too much ‘stuff’ crowding your aura?

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space 14
Crowded house; Google image

Okay, that photo (above) might be over the top, but you get the idea. If you are stepping over piles and around boxes, or if you cannot find a place to set your coffee cup down, then it is time to add some breathing space to your home space. Especially if you live in a home that is less than 800 sq. ft, like a one-bedroom apartment or loft apartment.

You are cramping your Aura-Expression!

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space
Who are you now? Google image

Sometimes we add items into our living space without thinking about how it affects us from an energetic and auric perspective. Our aura likes to BREATHE! Subtle body energy fields emanate out from our physical body and are called collectively the ‘Aura’.

Our aura is very much alive! It wants to run, and dance, and flow with the Chi, but instead, it walks with you through that crowded room and feels all the energy attachments you have to each item. Some of those attachments are oppressive (like the candy dish your grandmother gave you) and other attachments feel warm & fuzzy (like the picture of a fun outing with friends). Either way, on a subconscious level, your emotional energy is pulled, twisted around, stifled, sad, or laughing as you pass by these items day in and day out.

Your ‘old’ stuff is exhausting you – and draining energy from new adventures

Now you can see how allowing items to stack up in your house can affect your energy levels – AND all the exciting and new opportunities waiting for the current YOU. When I mention ‘old’ stuff, it refers to items that have run their course with you. They provided an energy boost at one time, and now you have outgrown it.

Every single thing we own falls into three categories:

  1. Represents the past: memories, family, events
  2. Represents the future: new book, new guitar, new shoes
  3. Is functional

Some items are in two of the categories, like the antique flower vase that has been in your family for generations, that serves as a gorgeous flower holder (past/functional). Other items fit into one category, like the new bicycle you bought for yourself with the aspiration of going for weekly rides around your neighborhood. This represents the future – an activity that you are looking forward to incorporating into your active life.

Some items fall into all three categories. If you listened to my recent podcast with Kimberli Ridgeway Soulretriever titled Enliven Your Space, you heard my tale of a recent physical/energetic reaction I experienced to dumping some long-held binders of material.

Here is a different example I will share that may resonate with many people. Recently, as I completed a massive overhaul of closets in my own home, I discovered two beautiful linen tablecloths. I have been holding onto these tablecloths since my grandmother died in 1993. She picked them up on one of her European overseas trips, and I inherited them when she passed away.

These innocent tablecloths, that were quietly hiding in a back basement closet, were suddenly in my hands and being evaluated about their continued lifespan with me.  The tablecloths represent the past (my grandmother and her verve!), and they are also functional (serving as tablecloths). Note: they have never been used in my home since I have a round table. But for me, they also fell into the third category of ‘the future.’ This is because in all these years, I have longed for a rectangular country-style wooden table to throw them upon, and set out lovely glassware and tableware, and have an outside party! The ‘future’ me, apparently, owns a small French cottage with a lovely garden terrace filled with flowers and friends and wine bottles on the table.

Yes, you guessed it. The tablecloths finally made it to the donation box! I held onto these items because they hit all three categories: obligation to maintain something from my family, practicality to hold onto something functional, and dream-funding energy for a ‘me’ in the future that is just not happening. It is not who I am NOW, nor am I making the conscious effort to become that person so lovingly held in my daydreams (holding terrace garden parties, owning a French chateau).

Going below the ‘surface stuff’

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space 4

This year, as you pull out clothes you have not worn in years, and shed books and papers from a decade ago, I encourage you to dig deeper.

Spring represents a time of new beginnings, new projects, and new adventures! This means that old restrictions must fall away, including the drain of energetically supporting things in our environment that do not sing our soul songs.

What are you really resonating with these days?

Who are YOU – in this current moment? The person that you are holds dear memories and also inspiring future intentions…AND, this person that you are knows exactly what is fulfilling, fun, relaxing, and calming to your system…right now…in this current moment.

Less stuff, more movement

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space 9
Space to move around and flow with; Google image

Start by viewing your home environment room by room. First, clear your mind with a walk in nature. Feel the openness of the great outdoor palette, and then walk purposefully into your home. What hits you? Beauty? Serenity? Stuffiness? Staleness? Grungy-looking? This is what is vibrating around you every single day, and your subconscious is highly aware of this particular vibe.

Sometimes the easiest pathway into cleaning out our space is to go after that item that we ‘have too much of.’ We have some hole in our heart or thirst in our system for that one thing – the item we buy and buy and buy. Mine is books. Books of every area you can think of; fiction and non-fiction and there is not much missing in the subject matter!

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space 3
What do you have too much of? Time to clean out! Google image

Ask yourself, “What do I have too much of? What have I overdone in my life?”

Spiritually speaking, this is an area of overdone growth for you, and you will soar to new adventures quicker when many of these ‘old’ energy items are released. They served your growth at one time, but may be stifling the current YOU now.

Leave the space OPEN so it can breathe

Clean and Awaken Your Home Space 15
Let corners and light in the room speak to you; Google image

We are animals of creature comforts and we tend to want to fill spaces. When considering moving a couch, a shelving unit or other large pieces in your home space, my suggestion is to move it out of the way and let the area breathe with white space. Don’t simply move the couch out and replace it with a chair and table.

Keep in mind that the area you want to shift Chi (flow) in has been saturated with the furniture item for some time. That area has received your mental and emotional attention as holding that piece of furniture for that specific reason (bookshelf; hold rare books and photo albums, for example). When you move the furniture and associated items out of the space, it is still holding that energy pattern. Give it some time to release that pattern, to BREATHE, and to share with you the sacredness of that specific space in your home.

Be open to what your space reveals to your intuitive side

In one apartment that I lived in, I set up a round wood kitchen table and chairs in the living room by the large windows, as the dining room did not ‘resonate’ dining space at all. This served us for a few years, and we loved and cherished that space with flowers on the table, meals in harmony, and gorgeous views from the gracious window space.

Who knows what will be revealed? Listen consciously to your home’s energy and your own soul progression to this current moment, so that what you now place around you truly resonates supportive themes in your life.

Start with Color if you are not sure

Clean & Awaken Your Home Space 11
Colors that vibrate with your life goals bring daily support! Google image

Feel what colors have been resonating for you in the last 6 months. This is an indication of the changes you have gone through, brought on by new phases in your life goals and higher vibrational consciousness in your inner-spirit work.

Bring colors and shapes into your life that feel supportive. Also, you may choose to take a Light Language class (Mayan sacred geometry) to learn the true meanings of colors and shapes, bringing your life goals into deeper clarity and focus.

Deeper Questions for Hard-to-Let-Go-of-Items

Alchemy Tips: Nurture Yourself and lose the Guilt

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly…

Yes, and it is also the season to be overwhelmed, over-stimulated, over-sugared and caffeinated, touching every imaginable surface in stores and public restrooms, and just plain old worn out!

Is it any wonder that our immune system asks for a day off? And that comes in the package of body fatigue, sniffles, a sore throat, and mental malaise.

But more than any other time of the year, this is the season of ‘do for everyone else’ if you listen to the hype of normal societal messages; especially for women.

Are You Laughing off the Immune System’s Message?

You are if:

  • You think, “I can power through this”
  • You overload on cough syrup and daytime suppressants to get through
  • You are convinced the world as you know it will fall apart if you take a day off

Our need to control our environment and fulfill the mental task list will, many times, override our intuitive messages that say, “Whoa! I need to slow down. I need to nurture myself a bit here.” When we are in the go-go mode, we tend to answer that intuitive call with “Later. Later. I PROMISE!”

And for many of us, we seem to block out any inspired solutions around temporary care for those in our household while we take that needed day of rest. Maybe it is the stuffy head that fogs those solutions of getting the kids to the grandparents house for a day or two? Or maybe…it is the guilt factor!

scott-adams-dilbert-not-feeling-well
Dilbert cartoon by Scott Adams

Getting Well on Purpose

Here are my top suggestions for getting to the sofa or the bed with a cup of tea quickly!

Recognize and acknowledge your amazing Immune System for alerting you. “Thank you, Immune System, for the message that I am out of balance.”

Commit to half a day or a whole day of rest and healing, right away! Whatever you want to get done, or whomever you want to serve – You being WELL is the first requirement.

Get some strong help in your corner. Check out my previous blog on using Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Oregano Oils to clear up the head, the lungs and germs in the house!

Check in with your Intuitive Self on what can wait, and what to delegate. You have built a loving network of friends and family around you – people who want to help out! Check with your Inner Self and ask Source for some guidance; inspired solutions may pop to the surface immediately. And in your heart, you know most things can wait.

When someone in your life pulls on you while you are sick, tap into that Guilty feeling. Really pay attention to how you feel when a person knows you are ill, yet continues to ask much from you. Is it stuffed resentment? A little pissy anger coming up? Sadness because you wanted attention and you are not getting it? When you identify what is triggering your guilt, you are more able to consciously see how this comes out of you towards others; either in words, actions or energy waves. Your ‘Guilty Response’ is not healthy either, for anyone.

Decide what you are modeling for yourself AND those around you. If you never slow down or take a real rest, imagine what message you are sending to others in your life? Do you Walk Your Talk? Your children pick up the subliminal message that the rest of the world is more important than an individual’s health needs. Your partner picks up that you will hold this over his/her head like a martyr or victim, so your partner pays for it energetically. And your co-workers – well, they just pick up the sickie-bug you spread to them by not staying home!

Listen to your heart of on what you need and what comforts you. When you Love Yourself, you learn to pay attention to what feeds your soul. And what nourishes your soul gives you revitalized energy! We all need that energy boost to bring healing to all the cells in our body, especially at immune lows. Maybe it is a cup of wonderful immune-boosting hot tea and a holiday movie? Okay, that might just be me!

selfnurturing1

Be Well on Purpose – that is my Holiday Heart Gift to you! Living consciously is about recognition of ALL parts of ourselves and working toward health on multiple levels. You will anchor LIGHT for yourself and all the world in Self-Nurturance!

Blessings, Robin

Harvest Moon 2016: Preparing the Way

In North America, Friday, September 16, 2016 is the Harvest Moon. It is the Full Moon of the Autumn season, and is close to the Autumn Equinox on September 22, 2016.

Harvest Moon Importance

The Harvest Moon is a time of the harvesting of the second crop – all of the root plants – and an important time of storing up reserves for the long, cold winter ahead. In many ancient traditions, it was considered a time of casting spells for prosperity and preparing the physical body to endure the hardship of snow over the landscape.

This year’s Harvest Moon is of great importance, as it will also be the last lunar eclipse on a Harvest Moon until 2024, according to National Geographic. Imagine what a change this is for the planet – that a baby born today will not see a lunar eclipse on our special Harvest Moon until the child is eight years old!

In North America, we will not see the lunar eclipse, but we can honor it as a shift that prepares the way for the next 8 years. A new level of higher consciousness living is being anchored now, and most of us have been feeling the shifts this past summer (physical, mental and emotional).

The Miracle 100 years ago

Three shepherd children of Fátima, Portugal were being prepared in the summer of 1916 for a much greater change for themselves, their community, and the world.

Lúcia dos Santos (9 yrs old), and her cousins Francisco Marto (8 yrs old) and Jacinta Marto (6 years old) lived a quiet life in the small town of Aljustrel, a village in the parish of Fátima, about 80 miles north of Lisbon. During the summer of 1916, the children were tending sheep in the hills every day by themselves, and received three visitations from what they perceived to be an Angel.

The Children of Fatima; Lucia dos Santos, Francisco Marto, and Jacinta Marto, 1917
The Children of Fatima; Lucia dos Santos, Francisco Marto, and Jacinta Marto, 1917

This miracle was so great and touched them so deeply that they did not speak of it to anyone. They prayed the rosary, as instructed, and each one began to change in noticeable ways. Physically, they all felt higher levels of exhaustion after the visitations, and yet, greater peace inside. They each noticed how they were treating their friends and each other, and began to shift to a gentler and more generous nature. According to the book “The Children of Fatima” by author Leo Madigan, after visitations the children found they could not speak or play or follow a normal routine for a couple of days. They felt as though they were in a daze from the beauty of the Angel and the energy they had felt during the visitation.

They were being prepared – the Angel showed up to assist them in raising their vibrations and strengthening their bodies. What were they being prepared for? In the following year, on May 13, 2017, the children received the first of 6 visitations from the Holy Mother, Mother Mary. The Mother prepared them with Light and asked them to tell others there would be a miracle on October 13, 2017.

Image of the Children of Fatima visited by the Angel; thefatimaproject.com
Image of the Children of Fatima visited by the Angel; thefatimaproject.com

The children obeyed, and thousands and thousands of people began to come to the small town to see the apparitions. Some 30,000 to 100,000 people gathered on October 13th at the Cova da Iria, where the visitations had been occurring for the children. They were rewarded with what is knows as “the Miracle of the Sun.” The rain disappeared and the sun began to change colors and rotate like a wheel in the sky. Many saw this “miracle” from as far as 40 kilometers away, unaware of the happenings at Cova da Iria. Lucia, Fancisco and Jacinta reported that they witnessed Mother Mary, the Christ Jesus and a host of Angelic Beings from the Heavens reaching down and pouring blessings over the masses.

What changes have you been experiencing?

Over the past summer months, many people have noticed physical changes in their bodies, and a ‘softening’ of their Inner Self. There have been changes in attitude, and ‘sudden’ healings of long-rooted traumas, as though rotted tree trunks and all the root limbs have been yanked out permanently.

What have you noticed for yourself over the past 3 months? Are physical ailments now clearing up? The strange pains in hips or the spine or legs are starting to wane? Notice also if you feel more clear-headed, and have received greater clarity on your path. Write down (to anchor the change) if any long-held patterns have cleared, been removed, or transmuted.

We are being prepared for a new world – for living at a much higher consciousness level and, just as a square peg will not fit into a round hole, we have been in need of adjustments. What will not work in the higher vibrations must go, and so it may have been shed gracefully or with a bit of what felt like blunt force. What we know is that it is in preparation for a substantially more graceful way of living.

Gratitude through our Light-Filled Words & Actions

We have the God-given power to speak anything into manifestation. Know that this is increased when you cross into living at a higher frequency of committed authenticity of the Higher Self. Divine LIGHT will be shining forth from you like a beacon in a Lighthouse, as we manifest with positive intention and attract people and situations that flow easily with our life path.

Harvest Moon over the fields
Harvest Moon over the fields

So for tonight, enjoy the Harvest Moon! Bring out your bowls of fruit, candles and lanterns and speak out the powerful words of prayer and blessings over yourself, your family & friends, and the global community. Thank Mother Earth for her beautiful support, day in, day out, and know that you have been strengthened to thrive in this winter season, and blossom over the next 8 years!

Blessings, Robin

Alchemy Tips: Taurus New Moon Wishes

The New Moon starts Friday, May 6th! What a fantastic opportunity to plant our own ‘new beginnings’ for the next month or for the rest of the year. Set up powerful new wishes and affirmations to give yourself the extra ‘boost’ that Astronomy & Astrology line up for us!

My favorite source for New Moon wishes is the book, “New Moon Astrology; The Secret of Astronomical Timing to Make All Your Dreams Come True,” by Jan Spiller.

New Moon Power

Jan Spiller helps us to understand the significance of the New Moon ‘wishing power’ and reminds us that this phase of the moon is the ‘Maiden Goddess,’ for new beginnings and fresh starts.

In my previous blog, Alchemy Tips: New Moon Wishes, we reviewed the quality essences of the ARIES New Moon. For this month, we will look at the quality essences of TAURUS, as our New Moon sits in the ‘bull’ energy. Taurus qualities will be enhanced during this time, so we can direct our New Moon Intentions to take advantage of this help.

Reminder: Spiller suggests that we make our wishes within 48 hours of the New Moon, for full strength potency. See 2016 New Moon schedule here

Journal Entry; google image

How to Set Your Wish Intentions

As we excitedly set up our wishes for this New Moon cycle, Spiller has some suggestions for us.

  • Know that your wishes can be for any length of time; one month, 6 months, 1 year
  • Make your wishes within 48 hours of the activation of the New Moon energy
  • Try to keep your list of wishes under ten individual wish statements
  • If you focus a couple of your wishes in one area, you increase the power of that wish intention
  • Do not combine more than one focus in a single wish statement (quit fatty foods and start exercising – not recommended to have two focuses in one wish)
  • WRITE them down and keep them in your New Moon Journal
  • You can use condition words like “easily,” “gracefully,” “quickly,” etc. in your descriptions of wish intents
  • Her favorite sentences begin with, “I want to easily find myself…” finish with desired situation (enjoying exercise daily; embracing a next, better job)
  • To take negative traits OUT, Spiller suggests using words like, “I want all inner resistance to ____ totally lifted from me,” or “I want all impatience totally lifted from me,” for example.
  • Use what you know are the qualities of the Astrological sign the New Moon is in at the time to enhance or release those qualities in your life

TAURUS New Moon

With a Taurus New Moon, let’s look at what types of qualities we could enhance:

Taurus (the Bull) are known for (positive qualities):

  • Nature Lover
  • Material Success
  • Gratitude
  • Sensuality
  • Trustworthiness
  • Determination
  • Strong Values
  • Patience

You could choose to focus on enhancing and attracting more of these positive qualities into your life experience.

Taurus (the Bull) are known for (negative qualities):

  • Inflexibility
  • Stagnation
  • Dogmatism
  • Argumentative
  • Possessiveness
  • Over-expectations

You could choose to eliminate these negative qualities by statements that release and lift these qualities from your inner being.

Explore and be honest with yourself, and I am confident you will discover powerful New Moon wish intentions that, once planted in your subconscious/conscious minds and with Cosmic Universe assistance enlisted – will lead you to graceful and dynamic changes over the next few months and years.

Blessings, Robin

Alchemy Tips: Mercury Retrograde hits again!

“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact.

Everything we see is perspective, not the truth.”

—Marcus Aurelis

Mercury Retrograde took hold of us again today, April 28th, and keeps its tight teeth around us until May 22nd. Oh joy.

I prepared myself for computer glitches to begin today, for my cell phone to get sketchy and even the possibility that my car would hiccup here and there…but I seemed to forget all about ‘personal communications.’

In our close relationships, we assume that we know what the other person is thinking, but in actuality, we are complex and ingenious beings that can hide our feelings, even from ourselves. Until a Mercury Retrograde, that is!

Misunderstandings; google images
Misunderstandings; google images

Here is what I have been reminded about today from Source in my own communication debacle: a person’s truth is really only their own – it can never be someone else’s truth.

We live collectively, but we experience life separately.

As humans, we can create goals together, projects, companies, families, homes and so much more. But it is important to remember that each of us sees a slightly different shade of the blue sky, and while it can bring us together for a common good, it can also keep us divergent from one another.

Our biggest challenge is to be able to ‘hear’ from someone what their truth (perspective) is all about. Just hear it. We are not responsible to do anything with that information at that moment, or maybe never. But if someone wants to be blunt and somewhat in-your-face about something personal (thank you again, Mercury Retrograde), maybe it is time to just listen.

My goal for the next 24 days of this potential communication minefield is to be mindful that when I hear someone’s ‘truth’ – it is perfectly fine to allow it and not try to align them with my ‘truth.’

“Today I am thankful for all the support in my life, for Divine Blessings, for the capacity to be honest and compassionate, and for all the million-gazillion ways that my partner is different from me.”

Rock on, Mercury Retrograde, rock on!

Alchemy Tips: Basalt Energetic Grounding

Natural stones have amazing healing qualities, such as the descriptions from the fantastic resource on stone energetic qualities, “Love is in the Earth,” by Melody. In my shaman jewelry making, I have found her book to be invaluable in assisting in the combinations of energies and intentions of our Mother Earth geology ‘friends.’

Many stones and crystals also assist in ‘grounding’ our human physical energy and spirit. Energetic grounding is an ancient holistic concept of bringing your spiritual self (energy self) back into your physical body and tapping deep down into Gaia’s center for additional LIGHT strength.

There are many books on the subject of grounding. Two of my favorites: “Gemstones for Foot Grounding,” by Starr Fuentes, and the Pleiadian method through Amorah Quan Yin’s book, “The Pleiadian Workbook: Awakening Your Divine Ka.”

BASALT ELEMENT

Basalt is an excellent stone for assistance in grounding our energies. While the physical stone of Basalt is always great to use, there is a powerful energetic use of Basalt that is described in this article. First, let’s review the benefits of being grounded!

BENEFITS OF GROUNDING

Here are just a few of the dynamic benefits of being energetically grounded:

  • Being truly ‘present’ to the moment; to your 3D reality (escapism, fantasy daydreaming, and denial are results of not being grounded)
  • Feeling an inner strength for all circumstances; emotional peace
  • A sense of solidness; one cannot be knocked over like a big balloon clown in the wind; like a solid core of LIGHT running down the spine
  • Calm observance of people and situations around you, allowing for conscious decision making (not impulsive, emotional reactions)
  • Ability to stay focused and moving toward your stated intentions
  • Recognition of inner emotional blockages through deeper awareness of self
  • Greater overall enjoyment of each precious moment on this planet
  • Ability to be ‘present’ again after a traumatic crisis

BASALT ENERGETIC GROUNDING TECHNIQUE

This powerful and effective grounding technique is provided through a channeled session in which Master Djwhal Khul, Ascended Master in the Higher Realms, provided this information. I have used this technique on myself and with my clients. It is strong, immediate and lasting.

The words of Master Djwhal Khul:

Basalt will ground nervous energies. Placed along the spine or laying down on large stones on one’s back is best.

Next best choice is holding the stones in the hands. The person will feel calmer – more able to see the whole situation and make appropriate decisions. Basalt is good for curing/stopping indecisiveness.

Basalt is an actual energy that can be energetically channeled down the spine of a person to assist with grounding – achieving calm, solid decisiveness.

Practitioner should hold hands out on either side of the head (oneself or another person) – 8″ away from the body. Hands with palms facing the ears, fingers closed. Practitioner should envision and draw in/call on Basalt energy in a grey-blue color into the top of the head and see it go down the spine. Practitioner’s hands stay in place on either side of the head, unless otherwise intuitively guided to change position.

This is like a “Column of Basalt.” This will immediately ground the person. It will pull their spirit back into their body.

ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

In practicing this technique, I have discovered that after about three practice sessions, this energy will be so anchored in the practitioner’s energy field that when it is called upon, it is there immediately. Barely getting my hands in place, I have felt the result on myself or with my client. Calm is instantly restored as well as a feeling of inner strength.

This is an wonderful and quick technique to teach to children. Start with the actual basalt rock in their hands so they can connect with the quality of the stone first. Showing a child the path to quick self-grounding is an emotional life raft for them.

Two Important Reasons

  • A person’s ability to respond in a balanced and conscious way in the world depends on their level of grounded-ness.
  • A person’s ability to ignite the healing process inside the body also depends on being fully present and grounded.

I hope this grounding technique is of great assistance to you in your quest to be ‘fully present Now,’ as well as adding a tool to your healing kit for your clients, family and friends.

I’d love to hear from you if you try this and I am happy to answer any questions on the process!

Blessings, Robin

Alchemy Tips: New Moon Wishes

Many people focus on the full moon and all the strange or wonderful changes we see and feel at that time. The full moon is the ‘Mother Goddess’ of the moon phases, which means that it is the full fruition point; the time when changes you have put into place are blossoming and giving fruit.

The New Moon is spectacularly overlooked and yet, it is the most powerful time for planting your new wishes and confirming affirmations. A wonderful book on this subject is “New Moon Astrology; The Secret of Astronomical Timing to Make All Your Dreams Come True,” by Jan Spiller.

New Moon Power

Jan Spiller helps us to understand the significance of the New Moon ‘wishing power’ and reminds us that this phase of the moon is the ‘Maiden Goddess,’ for new beginnings and fresh starts.

Today, April 7th, is the New Moon, and Spiller suggests that we make our wishes within 48 hours of the New Moon, for full strength potency. Astrologically, the New Moon is in Aries, and that astrology sign’s qualities are enhanced during this time.

How to Set Your Wish Intentions

As we excitedly set up our wishes for this New Moon cycle, Spiller has some suggestions for us.

  • Know that your wishes can be for any length of time; one month, 6 months, 1 year
  • Make your wishes within 48 hours of the activation of the New Moon energy
  • Try to keep your list of wishes under ten individual wish statements
  • If you focus a couple of your wishes in one area, you increase the power of that wish intention
  • Do not combine more than one focus in a single wish statement (quit fatty foods and start exercising – not recommended to have two focuses in one wish)
  • WRITE them down and keep them in your New Moon Journal
  • You can use condition words like “easily,” “gracefully,” “quickly,” etc. in your descriptions of wish intents
  • Her favorite sentences begin with, “I want to easily find myself…” finish with desired situation (enjoying exercise daily; embracing a next, better job)
  • To take negative traits OUT, Spiller suggests using words like, “I want all inner resistance to ____ totally lifted from me,” or “I want all impatience totally lifted from me,” for example.
  • Use what you know are the qualities of the Astrological sign the New Moon is in at the time to enhance those qualities in your life

Alchemy Tips: Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Oregano Oils

Winter winds, chapped lips, sore throats and chest cough – not my favorite part of this season! Holistically, let’s find ways to keep ourselves strong.

Here are my three favorite essential oils:

  • Peppermint Oil – cleans bacteria from the air; clears the mind
  • Eucalyptus Oil – great for respiratory ailments; helps a sore throat
  • Oregano Oil – clears chronic issues; asthma, bronchitis and more

These three ‘miracle’ workers help with a number of issues, including aiding digestion and clearing skin rashes. But my focus is on the respiratory tract.

Breathing air is necessary for life – and when it is inhibited, we have an internal fear switch that can go on that basically says, “I am not well – I am not surviving.” Even if you are not aware of this thought consciously – your instinctual side is – and this can begin to color how you see your day, your week, your world.

To remove the struggle, let’s clean up the air, and help our lungs!

First – I want to be clear that I am recommending Peppermint oil and Oregano oil be used in diffusers to put the scent into the air. Eucalyptus oil can be used on the body, rubbed into the chest as long as you add another diluting-type oil. Also, if you are pregnant, read about these oils carefully, as they may not be recommended during pregnancy.

Second – I will refer to diluting oil, and that means using more of this oil and only a couple of drops of the essential oil. Diluting oils can be Jojoba oil, Almond Oil, Sesame Oil, Coconut oil (liquid) and even Olive oil. Vitamin E oil may be too thick to spread.

Third – I mention diffusers. If you don’t know what diffusers are, you can check out this information on different types of diffusers, and also visit your local organic products store, and you will find lots of options as well.

PEPPERMINT:  I have used peppermint oil for years. I love this oil! As a fan of the old fashioned water with tea candle below-type of diffuser, this is my oil of choice daily in my home. It assists in cleaning the air as it has anti-fungal properties, so my husband’s allergies are lessened. This oil also stimulates and refreshes the brain, so it is great to put into the air when you are mentally fatigued. MORE ON PEPPERMINT

I do NOT put peppermint on my body, as it is very strong and can burn. Even with a diluting oil, I feel this is too strong for me. If you see it recommended that way and want to try it on your chest, temples, etc., please have plenty of diluting oil handy.

EUCALYPTUS:  Every time I have a sore throat and chest cough, I turn to eucalyptus essential oil. With this oil, I always use a diluting oil and my favorite is Jojoba oil. It is relatively inexpensive and spreads very well. Also, jojoba oil regenerates the skin tissue. MORE ON EUCALYPTUS

As soon as I put this on my throat (outside, not inside!), I feel immediate relief. Remember, essential oils penetrate the skin in 30 seconds, so it is on its way to providing relief to your internal organs. Eucalyptus is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory in properties. ALWAYS wash your hands completely with soap & water, as you do not want to rub your eyes later and accidentally put oil in your eye area. SAFETY GUIDELINES

OREGANO:  As a new fan of Oregano oil, I am hooked! This essential oil is amazing, and the results are quick for chronic issues (two to four weeks). Oregano oil is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial in properties. I have been dealing with bronchitis on and off for two years and this was recommended to me recently. I was informed that the best format for me was to inhale it. Caution alert – sniffing right from the bottle can cause burning in the nose!

I have been putting this in my diffuser in my home office daily and I use about 10 drops in the small water container. It is strong, so I can smell it continuously. Since I am in my office for about 6 hours per day, this is a lot of infusion. Inside of 2 weeks I noticed immediate results. I can breathe deep and there is no tightness in the bottom of my lung area (the alveoli). I have been outside on some sunny February days to do two-mile walks, and there is no struggle with breathing. Thank You, Oregano!! MORE ON OREGANO

Again, I highly recommend you read the SAFETY GUIDELINES on using the oils before getting started.

Clean Air, Clear Lungs and we are set to BREATHE in and be joyously present every day!

Blessings, Robin
