General Update July 2013

It has been suggested to me that I might add some personal posts to the blog, (not just informational), so I thought i would take this opportunity to do just that!

A sweet friend of mine (my newly adopted “sister”) is new to the crystal world and recently she asked how I work with the crystals. She said she read the other posts on how to do these things, but wanted to have a glimpse of what I do. I thought that was an excellent question/suggestion. So here goes:

– In a normal day, I connect and talk with the crystals as I pass… (in my house you can’t go 5 steps without encountering a crystal friend). I am lucky, indeed!!

Here is a picture of one of the Crystal People sitting on my desk. It has Sigils which remind me of a city scape. I love this crystal.

– I speak to my crystal guide, Venus, periodically as questions arise or when I need clarity on something crystal related. Or sometimes I just pop in on her to say “thank you” and that I love her.

– Sometimes friends let me know they need prayers or energy. When this happens I get quiet and connect with the Crystalline Grid (the Crystal People as a whole). I do this by settling into myself and reaching out to the Crystal People. I can feel them… it is comparable to seeing a light beyond a dark room, I pull myself toward that feeling (light).

Next, I picture in my mind my friend who has expressed need. Astrally, I go to that person, and I envelope them with this crystalline energy. I hold out my hands (if I am alone, I will sometimes do this physically, if not, then in my minds eye). I feel myself near the person and I allow the crystal energy to flow through me into the person and I surround them, filling their aura. I feel the crystalline energy (which I would compare to sparkles and love) flowing into and around the person. Often I add Reiki energy. As I withdraw myself, I ask the crystalline energy to stay in their aura and to hold the person in their highest light. I leave the Crystal People with my thanks and gratitude.

– Lately I have needed extra assistance from the Crystal People. I’ve been dealing with a problem with my shoulder since February… Horrible pain and steadily decreasing range of motion. Along with acupuncture, herbs, physical therapy and traditional medical therapies, I have been asking the Crystal People for help with my shoulder. My energy has been very low, I feel terrible and I am not sleeping well at night. For me lately, everything physically, emotionally and mentally has been all wicky wacky. The constant pain has been affecting my mood and I was in a downward spiral.

I knew I needed to stop this spiral. Enter the Crystal People. I created a crystal grid for myself.

This blog post was becoming MUCH too long, so I cut out the details about my grid. I will be posting that as a separate blog post. Suffice it to say, my crystal grid has been working well.

How do I know this? I had the same issues with my left shoulder about five years ago. I wasn’t as connected to myself at the time and didn’t work with the Crystal People for my own needs as I have been doing this go ’round. My left shoulder was much worse by this time than my right is now. While I have lost some range of motion, it isn’t as severe as it was when I didn’t ask for the Crystals’ assistance. I’m glad I set up my crystal grid. I look forward to sharing the details with you! (That is what they call a “cliff-hanger”, right!?)

So, this leads me to now. I have a frozen shoulder. Also the space where my nerves and blood vessels pass is about a quarter of what it should be. The bursa is inflamed. Because of the neuropathies caused by the chemotherapy and radiation, the pain I feel is disproportionate to the stimuli. In layman’s terms: it hurts worse than it should.

Anyway, I am scheduled for surgery in a few days and I look forward to healing up gently, easily and quickly! In preparation, I am writing a few blog posts and getting new crystals posted for your viewing pleasure. You can find them here: clear crystals, crystal clusters and golden healers.

I have some Gas Phantoms that I didn’t get posted. (If you are looking for a Gas Phantom, I will be posting them as soon as I am able! They are great for Lightworkers, I love them!) In the meantime, I welcome your prayers and good intentions!

Until next time, I wish you crystal blessings!
