Energy can be conjured up in many ways. As I am typing this out, I am surrounded by Siri playing a musical station featuring stringed instruments. So lovely how a violin and a viola cut through the air changing vibrations we can feel deeply. Scents attract many species into our space, the nose is keen for an animal’s survival. Essential oils permeate my cells today because I anointed myself before I started writing this blog. A candle glows as oxygen and fire do the tango they have done over thousands of years. Energy involves action in one form or another. We can amply this force by awareness, respect, and involvement (to but name a few ways)!
Grid work is a playful strategy of moving power which is circling us at every moment. Adding good intentions, directing loving suggestions, incorporating pieces of nature helps with coping in day to day life. Turning to the outdoors, taking earth magic and infusing the wonder into our energy field causes shifts in our being. Meditating on the imagery of an energy grid allows ripples and quakes in our mind’s pool of thought. Clarity fused with renewed pep is often the outcome of an energy grid. This is a remote technique and is a fun, colorful way to try out the mystique of shifting day to day life as you know it!
This morning I made time to sit with 3 of my wands out on the back deck. In an effort to strengthen my meditation practices, becoming still in nature was exactly what I needed today. Wands are excellent communicators channeling just the right frequency to help us gain harmony.
Jewelry tends to be worn in close contact with one’s body. This personal connection is different from a stuffed animal’s power yet not do not think it any less. Many of us want to hold something to trigger a memory or receive comfort, typically from a person who has passed on. Objects are further given positive reinforcement by our need to feel love. When jewelry is handed down by generations it carries unique energies stemming from the original owner. A blend of old traditions, beliefs, blood lines, journeys, all enabling the heirloom to become an evolving mastery of life.
These comfort items will always encapsulate the intentions granted onto them for as long as they are in existence. I like to think when I parted with my childhood stuffed animals, the love inside melted down, into the earth. If my cloth companions got incinerated I wished the smoke and vapors blended with the air. As I unpack boxes featuring my ancestors glassware, the importance and pride is not lost on me. Jewelry shared from my mother makes me feel stronger in my core either wearing or simply looking at the gems. Since everything is energy, why not always build an energetic wave in a positive manor? Keep or send comfort things away with love and joy always.
My relationship with the mineral kingdom keeps on growing as I learn more and develop my bond with nature. Each day I learn more of who I am, deep within my soul. Several months ago, a video was brought to my attention of a boy (aged 7) talking about crystals grids. I watched the video with tears in my eyes from the amazement of knowledge he spoke with. HIs relationship with rocks was similar to mine, the difference was he talked so openly and freely about it where as I tend to keep to myself. He has gotten a lot of recognition and developed his voice as more videos have been recorded. I’m sure you will enjoy looking up articles and events he is part of. Adam, The Crystal Grid Maker, has helped me realize the conversations or inner truths do happen as easily as we breath.
For the calendar’s L-O-V-E month, I thought I would offer up a caring deal for those of you seeking energy work.
There are a few choices you have for taking me up on a reduced session this month. Being local to CT makes holding a face to face meeting something we can plan for. I wrote about what to expect from spending an hour with me on WordPress several years back. Every experience is different as is every time we work together. I have changed my craft but the base, the main components are still the same. What you may find different with me verses other practitioners you have encountered is my willingness to listen to my intuition, guides, and guest speakers.
If travel around Connecticut U.S.A is not in your future, please know there are other ways we can communicate sending healing energies your way. Everyone, no matter where they live or what extra time their calendar allows can benefit from remote work. Energy is free flowing. We know it works well through power lines being noticeable throughout our landscape with large power stations and transformers. Like radio waves, broadcasting or beaming healing energy shares a similar movement though the air. I wrote a short piece on this blog recently about the Reiki practice of formulating a grid. Another way to transmit messages and helpful inspirations is though shaman journeying.
Either way you choose energy work, I am sure you will find it fun and helpful on many levels. If interested, I can go into more detail in the comments area. Please know we can chat privately by Email too.
I have set up two recently and marvel at the power generated from placing quartz crystals in a pattern and drawing Reiki symbols over them (usually done with a wand). Because of my relationship with the mineral kingdom, I typically add other gems to the grid. Each set up is uniquely different. I always have a fun time communicating with the crystals and learning who wants to go where and how the energy should flow by adjusting points and positions. The Antahkarana Symbol (above) is the base for the crystals with other mineral friends joining in and placed here and there.
When I feel the personalized grid is at it’s peak, I take a picture to share with the individual who requested the remote Reiki treatment. For respect of privacy, I do not share any of these photos on social media. Therefore, you probably have not seen this aspect of my energy work I adore. I would be happy to set one up on your behalf! The grid is great for energy balancing, wiggling out stagnancy within our systems, shifting inner focus, healing wounds known and unrealized, giving extra pep to our bodies, and of course many other pieces not fully recognized to assist us to become greater.
Edit adding in February 2018 to share more information on my grid development and set up, please know change is very important with energy work. Nature does not stay the same, life does not stay the same, methods alter and switch. Over the years, I’ve used different designs other than the Antahkarana which I originally learned with. Other metaphysical tools have come in and out of grid set-ups with sound (vibration) being a notable addition to this remote work. A detailed write up and pictures are sent to you daily for as long as the grid is active (minimum of 3 days).
October is the month for my local rock show. I have been a member of the club coming close to a decade now. Last year I stepped down from the role of Vice President of Special Events, a title I held for 6 years. It is always good to change things up and give someone else a chance to make a difference. I am still very active in the goings on and will be volunteering for the up coming show, as I have done for past events. My parents told me we went as a family to the rock club’s show in it’s beginning days, which I have vague memories of. None of us were ever members and it wasn’t until my adult years I joined. Not sure if either of my parents thought I would turn into the crystal believer I am today? A big take away from the years involved with the club is a better understanding of nature. Some things us humans and nature (I’m looking at you mineral kingdom) have in common is noticing, being around to witness change. The ability to see life unfold, develop and then choosing to contribute or be passive with the states of maturity. I believe both life forces offer opportunities, the choice to either release energy or remain quiet.
I have attended a few different shows around New England and still rank my club’s as one of the top 3. The mecca of all rock shows is held during the month of February in Arizona. Everyone tells me I have to go, “There is nothing like it, yards and yards, football fields upon football fields of rocks!” they say. To me rock shows are basically all the same. It’s a coming together, celebrating the majestic-ness found within the earth, under one roof. Some show’s house hundreds of dealers while others have a handful. The conclusion I have come to in regards to a show, size doesn’t matter. Square footage is not the issue, is not the success meter of a show. A good focus for a rock show with heart is who collects the minerals, how they are displayed, traveling conditions, health of the dealers, reasons for selling, location of venue, staff running the show… theses are the things that keep me coming back.
I’m drawn to those who care about their goods quicker than those who don’t have the right things invested working with mother earth. I believe nature looks up to us, fingers always crossed we do better tomorrow. The rocks are her children, the oldest children with the most wisdom and assistance to give to others. People don’t have to buy into the metaphysical aspects of the crystals. Dealers should be respectful and honor the mineral helping with their livelihood. Buyers should be aware of what they are purchasing, especially marveling over the age of the specimen in hand. Love what you have and look forward to sharing with others to bring about more joy and knowledge. Give your local rock show a try. Stop by and visit the information booth about the club hosting the show, you never know what you might unearth!
I’m a member of the local rock club. What we call our annual fundraiser is in the form of the annual rock and mineral show, which I am an active participant. One of the attractions is the stage’s display cases. All club members are encouraged to come up with a display of their choosing. The stage will hold about 15 cases, sized roughly 3 x 2ft. Our club does not have many rules or regulations in regards to these displays. Geological location, different forms of a specimen, how to make cabochons, rough verses tumbled, are the common themes running throughout.
About 4 years ago, I was asked to create a display featuring the metaphysical angle of rock collecting. Open talk about collecting crystals for the soul purpose of using them in energy work or other crafts was not commonly heard at meetings. Because of my beliefs and needing offer other possible modalities to help one another, I agreed. My display case was the first to have metaphysical properties listed and I have been putting one together every year since then. Unfortunately, I don’t always remember to take a picture, so I just have two.
I have a free day today. I’m attempting to fill it with a mix of catching up on the Internet, physical cleaning of the living quarters, and listening to my inner voice. Feeling I’ve achieved many of those tasks, it’s time to write in order to solidify what I am coming to understand.
I am the only one who can make a change. With my words and actions, the environment I dwell in will only improve with my actions within and without myself. Grasping my abilities as an energy practitioner and believing in what I do will ramp up the results.
It’s an interesting mix of emotions with a tug of war with my ego and natural abilities. I never want to come across as someone who knows it all. I want to have that air of Glinda who smiles while saying, “You had to find it out all for yourself!”
Today though, today I am realizing to be the person, holding the wand and ensuring the other, they have known the answer all along is to believe in the magic myself. Knowing that if I ask for something there is a very good chance the wish will be granted. It is important to keep on asking and keep on wishing with a strong belief the message is being heard.
