Scheelite is a new stone (to me at least) that I found at a recent gem show. The specimens I have come from Turkey. It is a beautiful blue and tan stone with many layers — a painting from the Earth.
The word that keeps coming to me as I hold Scheelite in my hand is equanimity. When I look this up in the dictionary, it says — equanimity is evenness of mind, especially under stress. Composure, balance. Equanimity suggests a habit of mind that is only rarely disturbed under great strain. That sounds about right. (more…)
If you are a reader of the newsletter, or a friend of Spirit Dancer Crystals, you will know that this book has been a long time coming. I am beyond excited to announce that Wisdom of the Grandmothers: Tips for Living from the Realms of Love, is on Amazon right now. I am so grateful to all of the people who have made this book possible — you know who you are.
This book comes out of an exercise I was given in my woman’s circle — to spend 5 minutes a day meditating with a photo of each of my grandmothers, asking them for guidance. As I sat with the spirits of these remarkable women each day, my pen moving rapidly across the page, they offered up their stories, wisdom and advice in the most loving way imaginable.
Early on, I knew that something extraordinary was happening, and I also knew that their experiences and their guidance from beyond was something people everywhere could benefit from. In a unique diary format, I posed a question each day and received answers that helped me to redefine my life and my path. Foremost in my mind throughout this journey was the question, “How can this benefit others?”
Through their own stories and through their wisdom from the realms of love in which they now dwell, they covered topics such as:
- Finding your own voice and using it
- The cost of saying “no” to yourself
- Working to overcome resistance and procrastination
- Dealing with change and transition in a graceful way
- Manifesting your life from a place of power
For those people who are in the process of “no longer playing small” this book is medicine for the soul. It contains the wisdom I wish I would have known and spoken throughout my life. It is the second chance for my grandmothers (and all women) to have their voices heard.
I invite you to join my grandmothers. Sit down with a cup of tea and a scone, and delve into the wisdom that comes from beyond the beyond. If you enjoy the book, I would love it if you would consider leaving a short review on Amazon where you found it. To get the book now go here.
Whether you have just stepped onto the never-ever-ever-a-dull-moment path of doing energy work or you are a well-seasoned traveler, one thing becomes apparent very quickly: you have to be vigilant about protecting yourself energetically. Crystals for protection are a good addition to your tool kit.
One of the truisms is this: once you’re open, you’re open. So good self-care means regularly checking-in to see how you’re feeling within your body and being aware of the health, i.e., vitality and vibrancy, of your energy fields. This is where crystals for protection can be helpful. (more…)
Often times, when a crystal breaks, it has taken the brunt of issues you have worked through and are now ready to release. It has broken on your behalf so that you will not have to experience the break physically; your body has been spared and lovingly cared for by your Highest Spiritual Guides and Angels. A break is also change made manifest—a change that can be felt as palpably as a sudden breeze.
At its essence, if a crystal breaks, it signifies that a shift has taken place. Sometimes this release point is unknown to you—the work you have done to get to this point of releasing/letting go may be unconscious on your part, but it is, nonetheless, true and impactful. So when a crystal breaks, the first thing to do is to offer thanks for all you have been given—all the blessings you have received—to allow this moment of healing to happen in your life. Allow yourself to think of the crystal as its own conscious being connected to Creator and thank it for its service to you. (more…)
Tsavorite garnets are one of the strongest stones I have found in a long time. It may seem like I write about garnets more than any other stone, and this is true. They are stunning healing tools and the range of work they can do is astonishing. They work on all levels of healing with depth and magic.
When I sat in meditation with these new tsavorite garnets – one of my favorite finds at the 2016 Tucson Gem and Mineral show – I received quite a lot of information which I want to share. (more…)
There always seem to be several crystals or minerals that move to the forefront of consciousness depending on the energies of the times. These 4 healing crystals are ones that I have turned to over and over again in the last few months. They are not necessarily my favorite stones (although most stones are my favorites), but they seem to support many of the issues I am currently seeing in my clients.
The first healing crystal, and one I mention a lot, is garnet. This is a cubic silicate mineral with a complex mixture of inclusions that determine the color and properties of a particular type of garnet. Some of the inclusions can be iron, calcium, aluminum, chromium, or magnesium, among others. Garnets are found in all colors, most commonly in deep red. Garnet crystalizes in a cubic or dodecahedron shape, that distinguishes it from other silicates. (more…)
