Agate, Carnelian, Moldavite and Larimar.

Over the summer holidays we took a day trip to Swanage. We went mostly for the beach and the ice cream, but there is a lovely little crystal shop there called Natural Wonders which entices me in every time I visit.

On the counter as I walked in was a beautiful blue lace agate bracelet which just called to me. I initially walked past, but then went back to it. Blue lace agate is a calming crystal for me, but it also helps with self expression, particularly when it comes to fear we might have around being judged. This crystal helps heal the throat area, and is linked to the throat chakra.

Next up was a piece of moldavite. Now I know this piece is not pure due to its low price and it’s calcite description but I’m going to work with it and see what it does anyway! Pure moldavite raises vibration, enhances spiritual skills, deepens development, sharpens intuition and throws all the issues you need to address to the surface! Basically, it enhances everything!!

Carnelian was my third choice. I have some carnelian already, but the colour of this one caught my eye. Carnelian is said to aid with creativity, motivation, concentration and perception. As I’m writing this I’m thinking it might be a good crystal for a writer to work with. Carnelian is also said to boost metabolism.

Finally, I was drawn to a piece of larimar. (My second piece!) Larimar is said to be great for healing past life issues, and for enhancing spiritual growth. It is a bringer of peace and love, and is said to help its user release feelings of fear and guilt. I am using this crystal at the moment to work through soul issues I’ve carried over from previous lives.

Weekly guidance

Good morning 🙂

Two cards for us today because I was told to take two!

The first card pulled was the despair card from the spirit guide deck and the message from this card is that we must take time out, particularly in nature, if we are feeling low about a particular area of our lives. I am told that this is not only to restore peace, but to allow solutions to come forward when the mind is quiet and not distracted. We are promised that no matter what the problem, nature will soothe us and help us feel better once again if we take time out to look after ourselves emotionally.

The second card is the Knight of wands and is a more positive action card. As I pulled this one I was being told to move, to go! Have you been holding back? If so this card is for you! It is the sign you have been looking for to jump into whatever it is you’ve been hesitating about!

If you’ve been struggling just lately though, the reading is telling you exactly what you need to do to get out of the worry pattern. Card one will help you feel better enough so that you might move into inspired, safe action in the future. The important message for you this week is most definitely this first card, the reminder to take care of yourself spiritually so that guidance can come through.

Has this reading helped you today? Let me know!

Hope you have a lovely week X

Weekly reading, Queen of swords

Good morning!

How many of you are feeling some sort of conflict, anxiety or frustration at the moment? Our card this week is the Queen of swords, a card which can represent going through these things, particularly if you’re female.

As I pulled this card I felt a sense of moving through and overcoming. I don’t know if this means your worries are false or if things will be better quickly, but I do see things being ok in the end and I hope this is a comfort to you if you’re struggling.
Sometimes we suffer more because we fight what we don’t want rather than simply letting it move through us. I asked for guidance around this and was told that to fight is never the answer and that we should take some time to look for our quickest route to peace if we want resolution. I think this applies to all things us humans go through. Peace is the ultimate goal, right?

I hope this message helps you this week. Let me know what you need help with, and if you need healing I will send some during my evenings.

Lots of love as always X

Weekly reading, 5 of water

Good Morning!

Today we pulled from the angel deck, and the 5 of water came up as our card. Now remember our card last week offered healing? This week the theme carries over, offering more support but also reminding us that although things don’t always seem to be going our way, there is always a soul lesson to be learned.

5 of water tells us to resist nothing in order to bring about peace, and to look for the silver lining. Perhaps there is something good about your situation but if there isn’t, then the positive is that there is always opportunity to learn and grow no matter what is going on. When things go ‘wrong’, don’t fret. All is as it is meant to be. Please remember to call upon your angels when you need their loving support.

What lesson are you learning this week? Where is the positive in each day?

Hope this helps and have a perfect week 🙂

Weekly reading – healing

Good morning 🙂

Today I asked the cards what our spirit guides wanted us to know and a very significant card came up.

This card from our healer guides wants us to acknowledge the fear, betrayal, uncertainty and sadness we feel at the moment. We may have personal issues we’re dealing with just now, but I can’t help but assume our guides are referring to events in Manchester earlier this week.

Our guides want us to surrender to their healing energies and allow ourselves time to feel what we need to feel before turning towards love again. They promise they will help us feel soothed as we regroup and support one another. They mention forgiving human flaws as I type this but I know plenty are not ready for forgiveness. Instead, we’ll go with the message of loving where we can and making a difference where we can.

‘Turn to love’ is the message I’m being told to run with. Allow healing in, choose peace yourself, and do what you can for others not just for this week but for always.

Uniting in kindness will change our planet and we mustn’t leave it to somebody else.

Helping young children through bereavement

Today I want to share how we helped my (just) five year old cope with the death of his grandfather. My son was full of questions when his grandad passed over, questions about heaven and where Grandad was now and whether he would see us again etc. All the questions I have spiritual beliefs about but might not have been able to answer simply enough for my 5 year old to process!

But alongside the questions M was also keeping a lot of his sadness inside, and this manifested with some naughty behaviour at school. To tell a five year old that someone is gone forever… I think that’s a really difficult concept to understand and M naturally dealt with things the only way he could, by showing his confusion through actions that would get the emotions out.

So we told am M he could share his memories of Grandad with a plant that Grandad gifted us many years ago. We told him that he could talk about his sadness too, but that the happier the memories he could share, the more the plant would grow. M took this suggestion on board and began going over to the plant whenever he thought of something new to tell.

This plant has never flowered before, but look at it after 3 months of memories! (And possibly a little luck that it is flowering season!)

My son is convinced Grandad is sending him flowers from heaven, and is still talking to the plant whenever he needs to. It has been a lovely way of allowing M to have a connection with grandad whilst also focusing on happy memories rather than confusion or sadness.

My 7 year old wasn’t interested in the plant so much and dealt with things in a very different way but if you’ve got a child under 5 who is struggling to understand the concept of saying goodbye, a memory plant is a beautiful way of helping them through it 🙂

Weekly tarot guidance – concentrate on joy

Good morning!

Where are you resisting joy? That’s the question our guides have suggested we address this week! (actually this question is close to the message I was hearing at the weekend – scroll down the facebook page to see!)

When we get caught up in how we think things should be, and when we spend our time in anger or frustation, we forget that we are letting moments of our lives pass us by which could have been spent feeling better. We forget that just by staying in anger and having a need to be right, we are denying ourselves the peace we all crave. When we choose to push through rather than relax, we’re not taking care of our spirit in a loving way and we’re missing out on the happiness that is not only our right, but what we came to experience.

Why would we harm our time so much?

This week, consider letting go a little and letting more fun in. Cut out unnecessary work, and let go of unnecessary negative feelings. None of it serves you like feeling good does.

It is time this week to nurture your spirit and remind yourself to laugh. When did you last have some fun? What did you used to do that you’ve neglected?

I hope you have a lovely week and that this reminder helps you 🙂

Weekly tarot guidance – 5 of pentacles

Good morning 🙂

Today our card comes with a warning for us! I dislike negative cards so much, but when I asked for a specific message for the week I was told to ‘be cautious’ so I’m going to run with this message.

Today our card is the 5 of pentacles, a card which is linked to money troubles. I feel that money is present or available for the taking, but that bad decisions might cause problems this week. If you have money decisions to make over the next few days, be mindful of consequences and hold off on taking risks!

This is a week for proceding with caution. If your gut says don’t fall for it or don’t buy, wait til this energy passes. It’s always worth taking time to really think things through and our card suggests that if we don’t, we might come to regret it later.

I’d also suggest using the cautious approach across all of your decision making this week. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. 🙂

Weekly tarot guidance, King of Pentacles

Good morning! The King of Pentacles is our card for today, and it’s a card which normally represents success related to the material parts of our lives such as money, business, work or purchases. As always though, when I pulled the card I asked for a specific message, and the words ‘Mental Strength’ came through. Remember our card last week? We are receiving more or less the same help this week!

To be successful, whatever that means to you, we have to own the right mindset… we have to have self belief and strength to push through and adapt. The guidance coming through this week is that we must work on our mental strength and our ability to keep going, particularly when things are not going to plan. If we want it, we must first work on the faith we have in ourselves before we can see the physical results. Have you had a rough couple of weeks? The card is speaking to you specifically. As I’m typing this I’m hearing ‘You can’t win without belief’

Overall the message is that success is around the corner if you believe in your ability to claim it.

The King of Pentacles can also represent an person of influence so do look out for him too!

Have a lovely week and let me know if this card speaks to you 🙂
