Shaman Stone and the Earth Star Chakra

My work with the Earth Star this week really started with the image I posted several days ago. The image had me scratching my head at the time. I was surprised by all the colors. At that time, I knew the Earth Star connects us to the Earth. Through focused meditation with my Shaman Stone this week my awareness has grown immensely.

image

My Shaman Stone came to me as a child. I was riding my bike when in front of my tire appeared a round fist sized mass. I sniffed it. And said or thought, “It smells like a rock, but it looks like a piece of metal.” I placed the stone in my pocket and continued down the street on my bike.

Shaman Stone

The crystal healing books usually day to choose a male and a female stone to work with as a pair. It turns out my Shaman Stone is a pair. You will have to watch my upcoming video Shaman Stone and the Earth Star Chakra video to learn more! 

The point of this introduction to my Shaman Stone is to give you a sense of how long it has been connected with me. I now have children of my own about the same age I was when my Shaman Stone came into my life. I know when I am performing energy work, my Shaman Stone is protecting me. It seems to match my vibration and/or harmonize well with me.

I was surprised to find, during my initial meditation focused on the Earth Star Chakra, the chakra has a far reaching purpose within the energy body. I felt my Earth Star Chakra connect the Earth with my feet in an intersecting point about 8″ below my feet. Once the connection was made the energy traveled up my legs and surprisingly into my heart, high heart, and finally throat before returning back to the Earth. The Earth Star Chakra connects us to the Earth in a very tangible way. It is our physicality. I felt corkscrew like releases in my heart.

I began feeling interesting sensations in my heart, some kind of unraveling or letting go, like a corkscrew releasing.

A night or two following I could hear something approaching my left ear. An intruder of sorts. When I start doing new work, sometimes there is resistance. Internal and external. I felt the need to do some tai chi moves to direct the energy outside. Moments later a low frequency truck came rumbling past.

One evening I was visiting my parents. My Dad asked for a healing. I build up a chi ball like Mr. Miagi and get to raising the vibration. He said he felt something.

Over several days I walked around with my Shaman Stones in my pockets. I began feeling that same corkscrew like energy coming out of my palms. Little electrical extenders so to speak.

On Saturday, I was telling my parents about the energy in my palms being like a spiral. My Dad said, “It felt more like a cone the other day.” Oh yes, a vortex!

As you can see working with crystals during meditation leads to amazing experiences. It is extremely important to stay grounded. The Earth Star Chakra is our “live feed” to Mother Earth. If my work has taught me anything this week, it’s that the Earth is fully in control. We are puppets she can direct at will, but chooses not to out of respect for our free will.

The information provided above is a direct result of my personal experience with a personal crystal. Your experience will vary based on your intent, crystal, and personal vibration. Crystals often choose not to work with an individual when they are not resonating at a high frequency.

Hope you enjoyed the first installment in my new series Crystal Healing Through the Chakras!

Crystals for Healing Bones

My Dad recently broke his upper humerus. When I stopped by my parents house Sunday evening, he asked me what the crystals he had on his shoulder do. He had placed them there earlier.

There was a selenite tower on his upper shoulder/neck and rose quartz close to his heart. The crystals naturally communicated to him what they do and he placed them accordingly… only he did not realize it.

image

Selenite is a high vibration and all round soothing crystal with an angelic quality about it. Selenite supports the skeletal structure, particularly the ligaments and tendons.

My Dad placed the selenite on his upper neck/shoulder. The ligaments and tendons in this part of his body are under stress from the injury and need time and support to strengthen. Not to mention a little relief.

Rose quartz is a heart crystal. Its frequency is that of unconditional love, gentle and all penetrating. The rose quartz looked as though my dad had originally placed it by the selenite. It seemed to have drifted with his movement. Whether he placed it there or not the take away is that rose quartz was smack over his heart.

The crystals he was using looked great to me. My addition was the Apatite. It supports the body with bone health/regrowth. His arm is still numb, so better take advantage of that. Apatite may cause severe pain if bones are shattered. It literally pulls the broken pieces back together. Only place apatite after the bone is set by a medical professional.

Just like my Dad, you too will naturally place your crystals in the right place to facilitate your healing.

Vehicles of Healing

I am on edge today. My life is great, so the combative energy I am feeling does not add up. I looked at the astrology. The current Mars in Libra transit is opposite my natal Mars in Aries. Finally, this angst makes sense. It’s all feeling similar to this time two years ago. Thank goodness the Universe has my back! The feeling may be similar, but my place is certainly better than I could have imagined back then.

My life has undergone radical change since July. We moved in September to a much easier home to live in. It seemed to happen quickly and easily. Before it could happen though, I had to dismantle my old belief systems and self-limitations. It was a painful process. The tarot cards I drew concerning our new home reassured me things would work out.

My new home has a dedicated space for crystal healing. The energy here is fantastic. My friends and family are amazed at how effective crystal healing can be. Crystals are awesome vehicles of healing.

I meditated with these crystals today, then decided to draw a tarot card. Today’s self-centered tarot card is Kuan Yin from the Mythical Goddess Tarot written by Sage Holloway with artwork by Katherine Skaggs.

image
Kuan Yin with Crystals

The tall crystals in the back are amethyst druze (spiritual), the green one on the left is malachite (healing), the brown looking one is pietersite (manifestation), and the clear sphere is quartz (cleansing & amplification).

Interesting the colors of the crystals are in card. The card exudes wellness. Green for abundance, purple for the wisdom of the third-eye, and yellow in this card is enlightenment. Holloway says, “Kuan Yin radiates the perfect fusion of love and wisdom, and through her elegance and gentleness, offers healing to all.” Lovely. And strange I would draw this card now given the astrology. And not so strange.

Deeply Transformative

The planets are starting to get to me. Five days ago, the first breeze of the new energy hit me. Suddenly things I had put off for months were done in mere hours. Yesterday I started feeling pain in my collar bone similar to what I felt during the March Equinox / April Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse of 2015. Nobody wants the Kraken I became released again!

Moon, Pluto, Mars contacts get me where it counts. Mars is in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn. The warrior is getting in touch with its feelings while Pluto goes deep for Phoenix like transformation. Mercury and the Moon are catching up with Mars in Cancer. Mars is the planet if communication, while the Moon represents the mother. Prepare for “Mom” to spread your fragile ego gossip to the point that it’s deeply transformative.

Ouch

The way this plays out with my natal planets is all very interesting. The transiting M’s (Mars, Mercury, Moon) are hitting my natal Saturn in the first house. Opposite Pluto. Meanwhile the Sun and Venus are giving me the peace out as they exit Leo. Not to mention the Uranus natal Jupiter T-square. Anything could happen.

I get the sense something big might be going down with my way of being in the world and how that relates to relationships and vice versa. I am going to sleep with an apatite tonight, and not the kind that leaves you hungry. This beautiful blue one.

Apatite Tumbled Stone

This crystal really helps me connect with my dreams. It improves dream recall and now that I think of it may be the catalyst for getting my house in order. I think it had a lot to do with the planets, the apatite didn’t hurt. Synchronicity abounds.

Sweet dreams

Don’t forget to cleanse your aura before bed! My personal favorite for cleansing the aura is selenite.

image
Selenite

Selenite is the crystal form of gypsum. It is white with a translucent fiber optic structure. It is captivating to look at, comes in many forms, and is inexpensive. What’s not to love already!

Try it out. Using a selenite wand go over your body starting at the top of your head and “brush” your aura until you ground the wand at your feet. Go over your entire body, it only takes a few seconds, you will go to bed relaxed and confident you are energetically clean before climbing into bed.

I just did it. Feels so good.  Like brushing your long hair only better!

Sweet dreams!

Magnetic Pulls

I love this time of year. The flowers are beautiful. The weather is warm, inviting me outdoors to play. The smell in the air is sweet and refreshing.

The energies of the last week are very magnetic. I feel pulls on my heart strings. My heart knows where to go. My mind is along for the ride, as it should be. Life is much easier when you get out of your head.

While crystal shopping over the Memorial Day weekend, I was drawn to some pietersite. I like to go into a shop and see what calls out to me. The pietersite caught my eye. I connected briefly with the first piece I held. Unfortunately my youngest child was suddenly in a fierce mood making it a bit challenging for me to connect the available crystals. Eventually I went back to the first piece I held in my hand.

That same day I learned that pietersite is good for soothing young children and animals during thunderstorms. We have been experiencing many thunderstorms lately. They frighten my youngest quite a bit. As usual the crystals that came to me had a synchronistic reason to be in my life.

The piece is quite beautiful. The coloring ranges from lavender to gold. The photo below was taken at midday and demonstrates the range of color beautifully.

Pietersite is a great stone. I aleady need four more pieces for my kids and pets. Weaving together love & light for the best of the Universe & All involved!

New Crystals

My newly acquired crystals are gorgeous! The chrysacholla reminds me of Gaia. I am going to clear them in a big container of natural sea salt followed by 528 hz vibrations using my solfeggio tuning forks.

Error Message

Lastnight I had a dream about customer service. Someone was really pissed they could not view the crystals I have for sale on my website. I can see the error message from my dream right now. It looks just like the one I see when I’m awake.

Last Saturday my mom was frustrated with my site, because she could not see my crystals. She thought she was doing something wrong. Every time I get started working on it, I get distracted. So the basic structure of the shop is there just not finished.

Time to get a business license too. I need all this stuff ready for the Goddess Festival. It is fun. My clientele will be there. My crystal healing course is close to being finished.

I guess this dream showed up to remind me to get going. People need good vibrations. Crystals have it. I need to share.

~Athena

Necessary Tool

I am meditating with a large black tourmaline and large chrysacholla. They are both beautiful. The black tourmaline hones in and delivers healing frequencies deep into the tissue and bone. Releasing blocked energy. The chrysacholla is gentle. It sends love to those areas left raw by the black tourmaline.

Raw Chrysacholla & Black Tourmaline

Meditation is such a beneficial practice. I really need to do it upon rising every day. It helps me stay centered. A difficult task indeed. Especially since the March 2015 Solar eclipse and more so since the April 2015 Lunar eclipse. Likely it’s time for meditating in nature. Soon, and with some crystals!

I almost forgot to mention, black tourmaline is a protection crystal. It assists one in healing root chakra issues related to basic survival and nurturing. Someone recently said or wrote something to the effect that every fetish is a root chakra issue. Black tourmaline is to crystals as cast iron is to the kitchen. A basic necessary tool designed for heavy use.

Chrysacholla is typically referred to in crystal reference materials as the crystal that assists one in reaching a state of Christ consciousness. Perhaps, but a more accurate description is that chrysacholla brings a deep sense of peace and unconditional love. Almost like a healing bath of prana, universal life force energy.

Wow, that was informative. Happy meditating!

Solar Eclipse Crystal Grid

My March 2015 Solar Eclipse Crystal Grid was set up a few days ago with the intention of providing loving support for healing and health. My $2 thrift store wooden serving dish holds my collection of tumbled stones. My flat drum sits right on top. It is the perfect crystal grid layout compete with light language inspired details. Synchronicity in its perfection.

This is my sacred space complete with Native American Tarot Card Deck and a lovely smelling candle. My parents have been under the weather since late last week. I chose the stones in this grid specifically to increase health and vitality as well as love.

The dark stones on top are green aventurine. They bring a sense of peace, harmony, and gentle strength. Green aventurine is quite pretty with shimmers of fuschite embedded in its quartz structure.

The pink stones are rose quartz. They brought up some old relationship issues needing transmutation. I attribute this to the eclipse effects. Rose quartz typically provides a sense of comfort and acceptance from a place of unconditional love. Which is actually what they did in this case as I was ready for it.

My parents met me for lunch today. It took them a little over a week to feel better. It only took two days for them to feel better after setting up the grid with intention to provide loving support for healing and health.

I believe the tumbled stones hidden under the drum greatly enhance the energy of the stones on top. Crystals are amazing!

Manifestation Amethyst

My crystal healer course started last week. Thursday I decided to look at the homework. I was a little nervous about getting it done on time. No matter, I’m excited about the subject and want to learn as much as possible.

Earlier in the week, I had distracted myself with some new crystals and making a new YouTube video about tuning into crystal energy. During the process I asked all of the crystals in my sacred space what message they wanted me to share with others.

At that moment, I saw a bright light in my third eye. There was a vortex of energy coming down from above and fiber optic type lights making sacred geometry patterns in the walls of the vortex. The vortex beamed directly into an energetic representation of a human. As soon as the vortex hit the heart chakra, energy spun out in all directions. Kind of like an X flare on the Sun.

Crystals are here to help us accept high frequency energy, so we can hold more light. This is important because our job as humans is to create our world starting from within. The reason being is that light beamed through the heart chakra has the best chance of working through us to create and make the most impact on the physical world we inhabit.

Crystals tune the energies around them to their naturally frequency by way of their sacred geometry structure. They help us to amplify our own energy while at the same time assisting higher frequency energies to interact with us.

Turns out I started my homework right on time and didn’t even realize it. That’s synchronicity! I was supposed to communicate with a single crystal, but my crystals had me do the assignment we all needed. Their message to you is that they help create in a way that has the greatest impact.

Movement Everywhere

Today was so beautiful. The clouds were like fluffy cotton balls arranged perfectly across the bright blue sky. Spring is upon us.

My Self-centered Tarot card of the day is X The World from the Sirian Starseed Tarot by Patricia Cori illustrated by Alyssa Bartha. The image seems simple, but there is quite a bit going on. There is movement everywhere from the atom, to the snake, to the Milky Way. The colors Bartha uses are perfect and you can see a mimicking of the snake’s head in the tail of the galaxy.

The last week has been tremendously emotional for me. All for purely egoic reasons, which really just means I need some me time. On the beach in the Sun, me time. The only one who is going to make it happen is me. It’s time to stop spending so much time in an office not being fulfilled. I have a deep need to be of real use in this world. That means not doing anything my heart isn’t into anymore.

Today’s card reinforces what I already know. Change is underway. Crystals and healing are my passion. I must follow the passionate path to really live and be in my fullness. Tomorrow is our local gemshow. I can’t wait to see what I find and what finds me!

Piezoelectric Exchange

The water in the dog’s fish was frozen over this morning. The weather has been warm for a few weeks. The days are still getting shorter and colder.

The Self-centered tarot card of the day is Master of Crystals from the Sirian Starseed Tarot deck by Patricia Cori illustrated by Alysa Bartha. The image on the card is a crystal skull reminiscent of Sha-na-ra or Max. Both powerful energies who communicate their wisdom and knowledge to fortunate individuals.

I love this card. Crystals have become a big part of my life over the last couple of years. I have always had an interest, but in April 2012 my amethyst cluster had a piezoelectric exchange with me via my heart chakra. Things have been different ever since. Many crystals are now part of my life.

Yesterday I mediated in the Sun with my red Lemurian sunrise Andara crystal. The Sun was powerful. The crystal and I were sharing information as the Sun nearly overwhelmed me with new information.

Interestingly, after my meditation, I was shopping for crystals and learned the crystal is an ascension tool. The crystal assists one in awakening to self-knowledge ushering in the Age of Aquarius.

According to Cori the Master has, “an inner strength and knowledge of the domain of the suit represented.” Having “achieved mastery of his own process, overcoming the ego-self, and reaching pure consciousness…” Cori describes the suit of Crystals “the flower of the mineral kingdom” having the ability to “embrace abundance, without being addicted to it.”

I am honored to have drawn this card today. Crystals are beauty flowers from the Earth’s core. I love them, always have, always will.

~ Athena

Part of it all

This equinox is expanding my awareness of love. I feel it flowing through my chakras. I feel the love vibrations expand my heart center in the same way air fills lungs.

Today’s card eluded me. This morning I woke up feeling queasy and decided not to draw a card until after work. Work was particularly boring today. At least the chicken salad sandwich was better than expected.

My kids and I had a moment after we came home. Little crabs went in the bath, I meditated, and my little sweetheart played outside with her friends.

I tried to draw a card, but decided to meditate instead. My heart led me outside. This evening the clouds were making wonderful shapes. I saw a dragon and four angels. The dragonflies beckoned me, and the crows flew to the Northwest.

It’s so amazing to be a part of it all.

Being at one with nature did the trick. I came back inside and shuffled The Sirian Starseed Tarot Deck by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha. The deck has outstanding imagery.

The card for the day is the Eight of Crystals. On this card, a young man who appears to be Scottish considering his tartan and the landscape. He is placing eight large quartz generator crystals on the steps leading to a tower.

The number eight represents union, infinity, our own magnetic field. The number eight coming up today, the day of balance, makes perfect sense. The crystals on this card represent clarity and power. Cori and Bartha state, “Not only does our hero realize that his work has value, but also that he is able to make it even more significant, beautiful, and utterly remarkable.”

Quite a lovely reading for the equinox. Thanks to the universe and all involved!
