The body tells the story of what is going on in your life. We just never got the manual.
We are completely made up of energy and frequency. All the muscles, bones, organs, and the systems that they make up. Sometimes you walk into a place and feel comfortable and other times you don’t feel comfortable. We FEEL everything. We have energy centers called Chakras that also receive energy from our thoughts that will also affect your over all health! That will be a whole other topic!
Every organ is designed for different functions, in addition to being a receiver to our emotions at all times. Lower sad thoughts create lower frequencies, good thoughts create higher frequencies.
The liver filters the blood and conjugates the hormones. But has the unfortunate job of holding onto our anger. Very angry people could end up with psoriasis of the liver. That why it is so important to let go of unhappy thoughts and feelings, especially anger, resentment, unresolved grief.
The lungs hold sadness.
The stomach is worry.
The pancreas is your sweetness in life, and when something happens, when you lose that something sweet in your life, it could be the trigger for sugar issues!
Bladder Issues? Who are you pissed off at? What do you need to say to somebody that your not…which eventually will wind up being a sore throat with all those words trapped in there. All of our emotions are connected to organs. Each time we have a thought, every thought, the energy, high or low, goes to the respective organ and effects it either positively or slows down the function.
If you really want to figure out what’s ailing you, think about some of the stresses your stressing about and how they relate to what symptoms you may be reflecting in your body.
If your knee hurts think what situation in your life you are not bending to change The list goes on and on.

Lemurian quartz crystal is a type of crystal that for many years have been assisting those of us familiar with them to retrieve information about the ancient civilization of Lemuria. Just like the quartz crystal can hold information – like in your computer and watches and many other scientific devices – the point here is that crystals definitely can be programmed.
People like myself, in the healing field, LOVE these crystals for the way they assist with healing guidance!
Light workers have received a lot of information while using Lemurian crystals. What has been discovered by those using them is that these crystals were left by a very advanced civilization for us to utilize. This society was very highly advanced and could communicate telepathically.
When you are using these stones and you make a connection with them, you feel like you are being transported back to an ancient time.
Lemurian Quartz crystal are also known as Lemurian Seed crystals and are mainly found in Brazil… although there have been some pieces found elsewhere.
These locations include Russia, Tibet, Zambia and the USA.
Before you meditate with them, hold them in your hand for a period and make contact with them. This may be helpful.
Begin by holding the stone in your hand and go into a deep state of relaxed inner awareness. Once you feel that you are deeply relaxed and have let go of all normal thought… bring your attention to the stone you are holding.
Lemurian quartz crystals have clearly defined ridges on their sides. Softly and gently run one of your fingers over the ridges. If you feel a reason to stop at some point – do so, and press gently on the stone where your finger stops.
Relax and allow any messages that the stone wishes you to receive to be given to you. Continue to follow the ridges… allowing them to take you higher and deeper into the realm of the Divine.
As you go deeper and deeper you may make contact with the angelic realms… and make contact with angels or other spirit beings. Keep doing this process every day.
It is possible that it will take a few attempts before you get a message… or it can happen on the first go. These stones are well known to aid connecting with angels, so if you want this result continue with the process.
These unusual stones are quartz crystals, so they are easy to clean… and can be cleansed regularly with running water. There are also quite a few other methods for cleaning them… sage, underneath a Full Moon or a New Moon.
After using these stones many people experience emotional healing from the deeply loving vibration of these crystals. I know by wearing mine and using them in my healing sessions that they do help to strengthen your concentration and balance your emotions. They have the capacity to allow you to make contact with the Divine if you rub the side striations while meditating and this does take practice.
Lemurian Quartz Crystal is a stone that has the potential to engender deep feelings within you. It may aid you to solve deep seated problems from the past… either within this life or from a past life.
These crystals have the potential to help you to improve your life… but you do need to put in the effort to work with them. They can be used by crystal healers… but they are primarily a tool for working on yourself. If you are dedicated to your own personal journey they are a useful stone to have and to use regularly.
Many have a light coating of iron oxide… which may be the reason for the coloring of some specimens. They have deep ridges on the sides, like a ladder, and this is the major characteristic that identifies them. Recently Golden Healer Lemurian crystals have become available, and they have a truly powerful energy… and are excellent for aiding spiritual development work.

FULL SUPER MOON IN VIRGO…OK…
What can we use this for? What’s in it for you?
Well, all day long I hear: How do I change my thinking? How do I change my perception? What can I do to find a new home? How do I find a relationship? It’s so hard. I can’t do that. I’m trying. I’ve been like this forever! YES! And so was I. Until I started to change the way I was seeing everything. If you don’t like or are not happy with what you are witnessing outside of you it is time for inside work! Your thinking – becoming crystal clear and aware of your thoughts. Clear, precise intention and visualization. The Full Moon energy works with you to release at the core level including cellular memory and things blocking you from attaining whatever dreams or desires you have. At the time of the full moon it is important to focus on releasing the old and the past. At the time of a New Moon, we are more focused on setting intentions in moving forward.
I already had a real grasp that we create everything with our thoughts. EVERYTHING! So, what was I thinking specifically that was making all this chaos in my life (which is behind me now)? I began feeling ready more recently to be in a relationship. One that would be different and more aligned with who I am now and becoming. Who I am now, who you are now? That is where your thoughts must be. I learned that old thinking and old patterns are just that. Old. What worked at 17 or 20, probably isn’t practical at 40, 50, 62…. you get what I mean!
Letting go of old habits is one of the many ways I learned to apply my trust not only in the Universe, but in my own Intuition. I also used other influences such as my journal, crystals, mediation, a little creative Feng Shui placement of things, peridot and the phases of the moon to get me out of my old thinking on relationships. This perspective can be applied to anything – finding the perfect house, job, passion, car, etc. I have encountered many recently looking to be in a relationship, so I am using this example to as I feel it’s easy to relate to and impacted me tremendously.
Everyone that is looking for a relationship is looking for that perfect relationship. That perfect person, the one you have it all figured out with and know. You haven’t settled for someone who doesn’t serve you completely. You have this image of who they are – what they’ll be like, or look like, or feel like. You imagine all the things you’ll have in common and then what your journey will be together and what it will teach you. How will you learn from each other?
In the last 6 years I have been forced to learn to go with what is and just view it differently. I have found this is really our only choice. And I have to say the positive guidance, which has not always been what I necessarily wanted to hear, from Karen Flore, helped me to keep it together. It is her own unique gift of perception in reading a regular deck of Cards that helped me to keep my head up and focused forward. This totally made me practice patience. But I want to focus on the Full Moon today, and, your journal – if you journal, because this was the method of expression that is profound for me!
I was writing in my journal what I wanted in my personal life and what I wanted in my professional life also. In this instance, I am focusing on manifesting relationships. I write and wrote all the time in my journal, “I AM in the context of already having what I desire.” (And may I suggest at this point and time you go back and maybe make a little note in your head of what you learned from past relationships and get a healthy foundation of what you want and only what you want, based on what you know that you don’t want for sure). It’s important that you don’t write down what you don’t want. You only write what qualities that you do want, as if you already have them. You want to write down what you are releasing but be clear and just state that you are letting go of anything blocking what you want. Any feelings or emotions not aligned with your best interest and highest good. Only give your energy, attention, and writing contracts to the highest good.
“I am releasing, any and all, blocks, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, known or unknown. I am ready to release them now and forever.”
So, I had it all together. Journaling, establishing the knowing of what I wanted in my relationship, and even who,maybe. And after months of realizing that nothing was feeling like what I was writing, I re-thought how I was writing it and asked myself what needed to shift. What became clear to me is that I had to focus on what was best for me in every moment and then the who, when, and where would, like everything else, fall into place. You have to erase your ego, release your need for control and things will flow effortlessly. When you are aligned with your highest good and what is truly resonating in your Heart, the Universe then brings to you that which you so desire. It may not be exactly the way you pictured it to be. However, the most important dynamic is that you are clear about honoring yourself, loving yourself as you are, believing that you deserve what you are intentioning and then allowing it to be!
Love this Image of Energy, Thank you Alex Grey.
Grounding is a simple way of connecting Heaven and Earth! We all have an etheric cord of energy that moves through our body and plugs us into the center of the Earth. We are so deprived of this Earth Energy connection in today’s world. You can ground by walking around barefoot in the grass, hugging a tree or my favorite – feeling the sand on the beach! This cord runs through the Root Chakra (base of spine and pubic bone) into the Earth Star Chakra. The Root Chakra is associated with feeling grounded and secure. When the lower chakras become unbalanced is when this cord gets weakened and you can start to feel scattered, not intuitively connected, forgetful, unfocused or scattered about. It’s possible these effects will prevent you from manifesting things as quickly as you’d like. You really need to be grounded to be totally aligned with your intention and the highest good of what you are asking for. Grounding yourself is a necessary aspect of manifesting physical change. We definitely don’t want that to happen, especially if you’re also working on Patience!
Which Crystals can you use?
So this is usually what I like to do. I teach you this as a foundation and you can start here and run with the energy….
I use the terminated quartz crystals to surround the body and to assist in directing the energy up for loosening up stagnant thinking and feeling. This means the crystals with the apex (point) facing up or down alongside the receiver. By directing the crystal’s terminated side down, I am able to bring spirit in and harness it to center, helping the body to become grounded and calm.
Effective stones to use are: Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Red Jasper, Garnet and Smokey Quartz. These are my favorite to use, but there are many others. You can go to my site and read a little more about what these stones are good for and choose and make it more personal.
My Simple Grounding Grid!
This is a grid you can build and then lay in the center to ground or center if you’re alone. But it’s always fun to have someone make it for you and then receive a little Reiki. Why Not?
I like the receivers head facing north. Reason being, Universal polarity runs North to South. Your body energy, when it is aligned and running correctly, goes up the back, over the head and down the front. So this will allow for the Universal polarity to feed the energetic body and assist in the balancing. It is also the best direction to sleep, hence your energy field is supported while you’re sleeping!
I choose the crystals I’m going to work with and hold them to connect and set my intention and ask for guidance. You may want to also place the chakra crystals on the corresponding chakras to increase centering and balancing. Start slow, the energy of the crystals is nothing to take lightly. I have had a few experiences myself playing around and the energy became a bit intense for me!!! Imagine that!
I place the grounding stone at the feet. I place a Tanzanite, pyrite and Herkimer diamond at the top of the head a few inches apart. The tanzanite connects the Soul Star chakra. This is where the spiritual energy and Divine love enter the body. It is also sometimes referred to as the Seat of the Soul. This will assist with spiritual development also and I think that is key in incorporating the direct connection of Heaven and Earth.
Next I place my quartz crystal points, clear quartz or lemurian, one at a time around the body. I lay an equal amount of points on either side. Whatever other complimentary crystals I use can be in any denomination. It all depends on what I am creating and what I need to do just that.
Whatever order I place the crystals, at the end of the healing I remove them in exactly the reverse order. First crystal I put down is the last to be removed from the grid. It just feels right!
You can spend as much or as little time to do this grounding technique. I would do a minimum 10 minutes. But relax enjoy put some nice music on and Happy Grounding!
Sound healing is not new! In many different cultures all types of drumming, bells, singing bowls, tuning forks, toning and chanting have been used for thousands of years. I am sure you all realize there is music that makes you want to belt it out and then there is that music or sound that makes you cringe!
Singing bowls are believed in, and I believe in them because I have witnessed the healing – the way sound can calm the mind and in turn reduce stress. Sound or Vibrational healing can lower blood pressure, strengthen the immune system, improve your mood and very importantly, relieve stress.
How does Sound Healing work?
Sound healing entrains the brainwaves to synchronize so the brain can attune to a balanced frequency. So now, we can go from beta (normal waking consciousness) and at some point wind up in delta which is sleep where healing can begin. At that level the body is relaxed without all the chatter that has the thoughts that disrupt and scatter the body’s ability to be calm, in balance and heal.
We simply move from imbalance to balance.
Awareness is a key factor. As you are receiving the sound, you arrive in this place of stillness. I tell my clients to repeat a healing mantra as I play the sound.
There is chronic pain in your hips or knees. So this may prevent you from climbing, walking long distances, bending, etc….So ask yourself, if I didn’t have this pain, how would my life be different? Answer is the mantra, so you can repeat in your mind, “I can move about freely and easily”.
The new higher vibration goes into the body and the cells and old lower cellular memory of imbalance cannot stay in the same space as the higher frequencies. We all need to take responsibility for our dis harmony and then in turn our healing. You become completely aware of the sounds and the shift that is taking place at a subtle level. You can say your body is meditating to sound. I like to visualize floating in the middle of an ocean and all the ripples are carrying all the old away.
Sound healing effects our physical and subtle energy fields.
Click here to read an article about how sound therapy releases Nitric Oxide in the body which is really important for pain reduction in the body!
Magnesium, Hawthorne, Garlic,Capsicum, Ginkgo!
What important system do these food herbs and minerals feed and support in the body?
If you said Cardiovascular your correct. These are all used in different ways to prevent and support healing Heart Disease. It is the leading cause of death when people get older. And it is such an important organ. Not just physically. It is where we feel. Love, Hope, Faith and where all of the vibration of our desires originate to send out to the Universe for manifestation.
When we suppress our feelings of heartbreak, anger, lack of intimacy, these are all hidden factors that definitely contribute to heart disease developing in the body. They are definitely underlying factors, I hear it all the time in my work. There are obvious ones also like, smoking, poor diet choices, etc. It is so important to work through issues of the heart, but who teaches us this ever?
Regular exercise and good supplementation are very important for the heart. Now, the above food herbs…just a bit about them so you can start learning and asking the right questions to begin the healing or to strengthen the Circulatory system. Hawthorn berry strengthens the heart muscle and helps to reduce blood pressure and also really helps with peripheral circulation. Ginkgo, aids in circulation and the brain. Garlic helps in preventing hardening of the arteries. Capsicum helps also with blood pressure and peripheral circulation.
Forever, cholesterol has been blamed as a major cause of heart disease. It is true that it is a big part of the arterial plaque, but not the cause. But it forms mostly as an inflammation response or damage to an artery. The plaque acts like a bandage to protect the blood vessel. Cholesterol has to be oxidized to adhere to the artery wall, so the cause and first problem is oxidation…No One ever had cause of death on the death certificate“Cholesterol”. It is imperative in healing and reversing any disease to find the cause and start there. Not just “take this”. Cholesterol is a problem when it is out of balance. Just some facts! Statin drugs actually lower your levels of Co Q 10, an essential enzyme for anti inflammatory for the heart and helps energy production in muscles (the heart is a muscle), and statin drugs stop the production in the body. Many medications cause toxic side effects because they are wiping out essential nutrients that the body needs to exist! I’ll talk about that another day.
Table salt, is also said to be a culprit. If you use a mineral salt (with important nutrients) and drink plenty of water, (dehydration makes your blood pressure rise) things should improve. It could also be your potassium levels are off. So, if salt does seem to be an issue in aggravating your blood pressure, try supplementing with some potassium.
Crystals that assist in raising the vibration of the heart would be rose quartz, emerald, green aventurine, rhodochrosite, smokey quartz, turquoise, selenite, citrine to name a few!
Sage and Smudging…A Purification of the environment that
permeates to the Soul….
The beautiful act of burning sage feels so freeing. The ancient technique known as “smudging” has been used for thousands of years in ceremonies and for personal use to “cleanse your space.” So what does that involve, why would you want to, and why might you feel the need to?
You know when something is right, it feels right. And, when something is wrong, it feels wrong. So when you walk into a space, any space, your home, office, a friends place, a store, you feel the environment first through your energy field known as the Aura – the layers of energy that surround your physical body. That is how you feel someone looking at you from behind or someone getting really close to you and you feel them in your space! Most people don’t realize that you pick up as well as leave behind a little bit of energy everywhere you go…but that’s another blog. It will lift your mood as it clears negative energy or what I like to call ‘lower vibrations” out of a space.
Where did it begin?
Smudging is mostly widely associated to Native American rituals but really it has its roots in many different ancient cultures such as the Indigenous Peoples of the Amazon. These ceremonies included the use of Palo Santo which is a sacred wood known mostly to bring sweet spirits in. The Celtic Druids burned Oak Moss for medicinal use! The Latin word for Sage is “Salvia” which means “to heal”. So when burning sage or palo santo, think of healing your space and yourself! The other qualities that Sage has are that it increases spiritual awareness and helps bring clarity – sort of clearing the air and the mind!
OK, Where do I start?
Begin at the entrance to your space. Move in a clockwise direction so that you are going along with the direction of the universal life force. Move the sage (or whatever you are using, sound is even wonderful) all around the walls up and down clearing and just keep moving about like a dance almost.
When you smudge, make sure to pay attention to high traffic areas including doorways and hallways. If you feel inclined to do an area twice, follow your intuition and smudge it twice! The Universe and your intuition are quite engaged when you are in an activity that they can assist.
Ask to release, now and forever, all known and unknown blocks that may be preventing the things you are asking for from manifesting in your intentions. Then ask to fill the space with Love and healing energy and whatever desires you may have – don’t be afraid to ask for assistance from your angels and guides. There are so many blessings piling up because we forget to ask, or just think we don’t deserve these blessings but we do. We all do…Wait and see.
You can feel the benefits quite quickly and you can burn sage in your home, office…I even like to take some palo santo with me when I travel to clear where I am staying from the energy that was there prior. And, of course, it is in the bag with my candles and crystals!
When we are not quite feeling ourselves, how many of us think, “oh the energy around here is really stagnant!”? …Right, very few. However, I am writing to teach you about the ancient art of smudging. This Sacred Ancient Act is believed to clear an environment of energy that may be stagnant or energy that is not conducive to your intentions for that space. It is especially important to smudge doorways because it helps to remove denser lingering energy that may have been left there. When we walk through a doorway we leave a little bit of what we were feeling in that space from our own energy field, which we refer to as our Aura.
If you’re feeling depressed or stuck, maybe a little tired and sluggish, it’s a good time to consider smudging. All of these feelings are coming from and getting into your field from your emotional, spiritual and physical body and effected directly from your environment whether its home or at work. All of these aspects contribute to the stress we feel that leads to dis-harmony and dis-ease in the physical.
There are many different tools for smudging. You can use sacred white sage sticks or loose, palo santo wood, bells, bowls, chimes, drums, toning, sweetgrass and even deertongue (it’s a plant). You’ll need a fireproof dish to hold under what you are burning – usually a Paua Abelone Shell. You can also incorporate a feather for spreading and circulating the smoke.
So pick your tool and set your intention. It could be something as simple as saying, “I am clearing out any old thought patterns that may be blocking my path and desires.” “I am clearing any energy that is not conducive to what I am wanting in my life to move forward.” Make it yours. Make it as personal as you like. And always express gratitude for the cleansing.
Light your sage or whatever you chose to use. Start at your entrance. Move in a clockwise direction so that you are going in the same way as the Universal energy so there is no resistance. You may want to say a little prayer to the 4 directions and begin. Ask for the removal and replace with your new intention. I also ask for assistance from my guides and anyone who may want to partake! My dad if its something big! Lol.
It’s a way to a fresh start. You’ll get the most from this if you leave the space for even a short time and then come back and you will better notice the shift. You can also smudge yourself. We pick up a lot of stuff from people we come into contact with – we can usually feel it right away it just doesn’t register as being negative energy. If you’re an Empath, then you have a better chance of identifying when an energy is not serving your highest good. We all sense energy from others, we just don’t all realize it for what it is.
The art of smudging is a sacred act utilized for thousands of years. Bringing in the Divine to a space will lift the energy and bring a more positive feeling to a space or a person. It should be done with the utmost respect for the plants and maybe the crystals you want to place around to raise the energy also. Be mindful to clear them also with the sage.
