Metaphysical Healing Properties of Black Tourmaline

Keywords: Purification, protection

Black Tourmaline crystals are ideal for psychic protection for anyone who must work or live in challenging places or circumstances. Carrying or meditating with one of these stones can keep one’s auric field clear of imbalance, even in the presence of destructive energies. Black Tourmaline crystals act like etheric vacuum cleaners, clearing oneself and one’s surroundings of negativity and disharmony. In addition, where such influences are not a problem, Black Tourmalines can provide high levels of purification which serve to elevate one’s consciousness.

Another application for Black Tourmalines is an etheric purification. Carrying one of these stones in the pocket, holding one in meditation, or sleeping with one in the pillowcase will provide a refreshing dose of cleansing for the auric field and all dimensions of the etheric body. This clearing influence can even echo down into the physical form. These crystals are also recommended for ridding oneself of negative thoughts, anxieties, anger and ideas of unworthiness. The purification available through Black Tourmaline is powerful, and it is an energy needed by all of us in these challenging times.

GemStone Healing Combinations

Black Tourmaline’s energies of protection can be further enhanced by combining it with Jet, Obsidian, Black Andradite Garnet, Smokey Quartz, Sugalite, Charoite and Amethyst. Its grounding qualities can be enhanced by Hematite.

Healing Properties of Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline has the ability to transmute and purify negative energy, turning it into usable energy. This is especially important as one fully opens one’s psychic and empathic abilities- Black Tourmaline acts to protect one’s energy field against attachments,entities and energetic debris.

Black Tourmaline is also an electrical gemstone and can be used to purify and regulate the electrical and other energetic systems of the body. Black Tourmaline is grounding and is one of the most effective stones to use for creating a grounding circuit with the Earth’s energetic field. This grounding circuit is increasingly important as we strive to adjust ourselves to the Earth’s shifting electromagnetic field. By utilizing the supportive energy of Black Tourmaline, one is able to easily move into alignment with these subtle changes.


 Black Tourmaline provides a grounding path for Light to enter the Earth plane.


This ally helps one disengage from obsessive or compulsive behaviors and release chronic worry and anxiety.

March 2014 Gemstone ~ Citrine


Pronunciation: \ˈsi-ˌtrīn\

Color: Varies in shade from very pale yellow to a deep amber, nearly orange, with some specimens exhibiting brownish tinges.

Appearance:  Crystal system is trigonal and its yellow pigmentation is derived from iron.

Source: Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland, USA


The name Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. Citrine was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C. and was worked into cabochon ring stones and intaglios in Greece and Rome through the first and second centuries A.D.

Much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat treated Amethyst. In general, the deeper amber and orangish shades are heat treated. Natural Citrines are mostly a pale yellow color. There is a tremendous difference between the appearance of the orange-yellow heat treated Citrine commonly found on the market and smoky golden natural Citrine. That difference extends to these stones’ energies, as well.

Metaphysical Healing Properties of Citrine

Keywords: Manifestation,personal will, mental clarity, creativity

Citrine opens the inner doors to increased clarity of thought, enhanced creativity and magnified powers of will and manifestation. Citrine in both natural and heated forms, stimulates imagination through three portals the 2nd, 3rd, & 6th Chakras. The vibratory resonance of Citrine activates and harmonizes these three energy centers, all of which are necessary to the process of creative imagination.

Through the 6th Chakra -the Third Eye- Citrine activates the thinking process and enhances mental clarity, as well as the visionary function through which inner images appear. Through the 2nd Chakra – the Sacral- Citrine stimulates the creative function, the wellspring from which new potentials are born. It is fitting that this Chakra is also the sexual energy center, the source of both types of ‘conceptions,’ imaginal and biological. Through the 3rd Chakra- the Solar Plexus- Citrine generates the human dynamo of personal will. Citrine strengthens the 3rd Chakra -Solar Plexus- , and through that, one can more readily dig down and find the persistence to ‘make it happen.’

Citrine is our foremost ally in the process of manifestation. The vibration of Citrine stimulates our 2nd & 3rd Chakras, initiating our creative energy and our will, and increasing our ability to bring energy into form. Citrine enables us to open more fully to the energy of Divine Will and the path of love. By resonating with Citrine, we are reminded that we are loved and supported by the Universe in our efforts towards manifestation. When one chooses the path of love and joy, opening to the power of Divine Will, Citrine supports us in bringing forth what is truly beautiful.

GemStone Healing Combinations

Citrine works synergistically with many stones, and one can choose combinations based on where one feels the need to add (or multiply) additional energy. Heliodor, Golden Labradorite and Imperial Topaz add power to third chakra, seat of the personal will. For additional emphasis on the creative function, Zincite, Orange Calcite and Carnelian are excellent choices. For enhancing the visionary function, Phenacite, Azeztulite and Natrolite are ideal allies. To bring in more spiritual energies from higher realms, Amethyst, Petalite, Danburite, Clear Apophyllite, Scolecite and/or Herderite can be of great assistance.

Healing Properties of Natural Citrine

Natural Citrine carries a powerful frequency that allows for the clearing and strengthening of the manifestation channel and one’s personal will. Its purifying properties come from its natural Smoky Quartz energy, combined with the stimulating Fire element it carries. The phantoms that often appear in natural Citrine allow one to connect to one’s Higher Self, so one can focus on manifesting those creations most aligned with one’s highest good.

Natural Citrine stimulates the 1st-3rd Chakras (Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus). These are the points at which the high-frequency energies of the emotional and spiritual planes manifest into the lower frequency realm of physicality. In other words, these Chakras are where energy becomes physical. For this reason, they are powerful points in one’s energy systems for manifestation and creation work. They are also the points where we tend to experience the most blockages to manifestation. These areas have to do with our sense of deserving what we want and taking the initiative to create it. Natural Citrine allows blockages in these areas to become apparent so they can be cleared. It not only stimulates these areas, but also clears any energetic blocks, allowing for a freer flow through the manifestation channel.

In addition to its manifestation properties, Natural Citrine is also a powerful purifier of one’s will center. It helps one perceive and heal issues of power abuse and feelings of powerlessness. It enables one to understand the proper action to take to resolve situations for the higher good. It lends one courage and fortitude to make hard choices or take difficult actions.


Natural Citrine is the great manifestor, allowing one to purify the manifestation channel and bring Divine energy into form through intention and action. It assists one in maintaining one’s direction when the going gets difficult, or when obstacles appear in one’s path.


Natural Citrine assists one in overcoming difficulty, maintaining effort through adversity, and taking decisive action to resolve difficult situations. It assists one in overcoming feelings of being undeserving of abundance.


Natural Citrine enhances physical stamina and energy, supports the endocrine system and encourages proper metabolism.


I open myself to the inspiration of my creative imagination, and through the strength of my will, aligned with Divine will, I manifest my dreams.

February 2014 GemStone ~ Blue Topaz


The name Topaz may derive from Topazos, a word meaning ‘to seek’ – the other possible derivation of the gemstone’s name is the sanskrit word tapaz, which means ‘fire.’ Topaz was used in ancient Egypt and Rome and in the jewelry of eighteenth century French and Spanish royalty. Its popularity increased and spread to England and France in the nineteenth century. In the Middle Ages in Europe, Topaz was believed to enhance mental powers and prevent insanity. It was also said to improve poor vision, promote favor with kings and civil authorities, increase wisdom and soothe anger. In current metaphysical thought, Topaz is viewed as emanating a variety of beneficial energies, varying according to the type and color.

Blue Topaz is a natural magnifier of psychic abilities, and it can assist those who wish to attune to inner guidance, as well as those who hope to serve others through doing readings or spiritual healing work.

January 2014 GemStone ~ Emerald


In ancient Rome, Emerald was viewed as a symbol of fertility and was associated with the goddess Venus. Other lore has maintained that Emerald cures a variety of diseases, assuages fear, improves memory, enhances persuasiveness, brings joy and even bestows the gift of prophecy. Ancient alchemy speaks of a sacred ‘Emerald Tablet’ upon which was inscribed the recipe for transformation and enlightenment.

Pronunciation: \ˈem-rəld, ˈe-mə-\

Color: Green

Appearance: pigment is chrome and/or vanadium; crystal system is hexagonal

Source: Colombia, Brazil, Russia, Africa



Of all the gemstones, Emerald is the purest crystalline emanation of the Green Ray, color of the heart chakra. This chakra is at the center of our physical selves, and it is our center on many other levels as well. The heart chakra is the wellspring of the emotions, particularly love and compassion. Love and compassion are the emotions which truly reflect one’s divine nature, and they are the rightful focus and aspiration of those on the spiritual path. Emerald is the stone which most purely represents the energy patterns of the activated heart chakra.

It is the stone that helps one to live and act from the heart level, offering unconditional love and compassion in one’s daily life and relationships, opening one to receive love from others and clearing the channel for one’s own connection with Divine Love. Emerald can help one stay centered in the heart’s wisdom, so one is not misled by ideas which sound reasonable but are not truly ‘paths with the heart.’ Emerald can help one to heal ‘heartbreak’, and to remember to give love to oneself as well as others.

Emerald is also known as a stone of prosperity; wearing Emerald helps attune one’s vibrational pattern to the spectrum of abundance, allowing one to attract what one needs and desires. Emerald is also a stone of courage – another another emotion which emanates from the strong and open heart. It helps one move forward on the ‘path with heart,’ regardless of any threats or dangers which seem to threaten one.

Metaphysical Healing Properties of Emerald

Keywords: Love, Compassion, Healing, Abundance

Emerald opens the heart, alleviates heaviness in the emotional field and infuses the aura with a pure nourishing Green Ray of Light. It brings the energy of hope, encouragement, gentleness and abundance into one’s auric field. From this gentleness and hope we find the energies of compassion and love. Emerald is the stone of the heart-centered consciousness and the healing that it brings to all levels of being. Emeral stimulates the physical heart and clears the emotional body of patterns of victimization and rejection of personal power. It brings a freshness and vitality to the emotional and physical heart. Emerald has traditionally been used as a stone of Love because of its ability to clear and strengthen the physical and emotional heart centers. It helps us view all events, circumstances and people in our lives with compassion and acceptance. Emerald stimulates the ‘high heart,’ or transpersonal Love center just above and to the left of the heart chakra. It assists one in practicing compassion and respectful understanding of others.

Emerald has also traditionally been used to stimulate both wealth and abundance. Wealth represents one’s physical and material possessions and financial standing. Emerald assists one in creating wealth by removing thoughts and feelings of unworthiness from one’s energy field. When these blocks are removed, wealth can naturally develop if desired.

Emerald also assists in experiencing true abundance, which is not the same as wealth. Abundance describes one’s ability to receive the gifts of the spirit within all of life’s experiences. It is a sense of opening one’s life to the divine and embracing all its manifestations with gratitude. True abundance is knowing that all is provided and that there can be no lack in reality.

GemStone Healing Combinations

Emerald works in harmony with Moldavite and with other heart stones such as Dioptase, Aventurine, Morganite, Kunzite, Rhodochrosite and Rose Quartz. Tsavorite can enhance Emerald’s effectiveness as a prosperity stone. Lepidolite and Emerald can be used together to soothe the emotional body. Emerald also links and blends easily with other Beryls, such as Aquamarine, Heliodor, Goshenite or Bixbite.

Healing Properties of Emerald


Emerald connects one to the frequency of divine love, compassion, and true appreciation for all of one’s experiences and creations. It is powerful for shifting scarcity consciousness to prosperity consciousness, developing one’s trust that the Universe will provide for all of one’s needs. It allows one to develop gratitude through perceiving and receiving the gifts of the divine. Emerald links the personal heart with the energy of divine love.


Emerald is a wonderful emotional healer. It allows one to display one’s compassionate, caring nature without fear or vulnerability. It encourages one to trust the divine in all things and to surrender one’s personal version of what reality ‘should’ be. Emerald can assist in overcoming feelings of unworthiness, fear of scarcity and abandonment. It encourages acceptance of others without judgement or imposition of one’s own views of reality.


Emerald is a strong heart healer and can assist the physical heart in recovering from all manner of imbalances or diseases.


Through love and compassion, all things are healed and blessings flow freely.

December 2013 ~ Gemstone: Sodalite


Pronunciation: \ˈsō-də-ˌlīt\

Color: Blue or gray, but can be white,yellowish,reddish,greenish

Appearance: massive or granular habits

Source: Bahia, Brazil, Canada, Namibia, India, USA


Sodalite is a stone of insight, helping one penetrate paradox and contradiction in order to form a new synthesis of thought. It enhances the mental powers of analysis, intuition, observation and creativity and is stimulating to one’s latent genius. It facilitates self-discipline, efficiency, organization and structure in research and other mental pursuits. It is an excellent stone for writers, business people, teachers, students, psychologists and those who delve into philosophy.

Metaphysical Healing Properties of Sodalite

Keywords: Access to subconscious and intuitive abilities, enhanced insight and mental performance, deepened intuition

Sodalite is one of the stones of the deep journey. It provides insight into the self and a dispassionate assessment of one’s motivations, strengths, weaknesses,desires, gifts and patterns of personal destiny. It stimulates psychic vision and multileveled understanding, sparking the ‘aha!’ moments wherein one sees the pattern that connects the inner and outer worlds and the events that happen in both places at once.

As a stone of insight and pattern recognition, Sodalite can aid astrologers, numerologists, tarot readers, as well as those who consult other Oracles. It helps one translate the archetypal patterns revealed in the oracles into meaningful understanding regarding the events in earthly life. It also helps intuitive readers assess the personalities and energy patterns of their clients.

Sodalite can increase one’s capacity for intuition. It increases the frequency and accuracy of one’s ‘hunches’ and gives one confidence in one’s inner knowing. It helps one to let go of the self-judgement that causes second-guessing. It also facilitates entering a deep meditative state and opens the subconscious. This helps one recall and heal wounds from the past and receive symbolic imagery from the wise part of the self that communicates without words.

GemStone Healing Combinations

For insight, intuition and increased mental ability, Sodalite harmonizes with Iolite, Lapis Lazuli, Siberian Blue Quartz, Blue Sapphire and Lazulite. Moldavite brings a higher vibration and a transformational intensity to aid Sodalite in its work. Phenacite, Scolecite, Natrolite, Danburite and Herderite all work to bring Sodalite’s powerful mental and psychic activation to a higher spiritual level.

Healing Properties of Sodalite

Sodalite evokes images from deep within the subconscious, enabling one to perceive one’s core lessons in this lifetime and to understand where one is on the path to completing them. Sodalite acts as a guide or inner travels- through meditation, dream time, or shamanic journeying. It aids one in staying focused on the moment, without being distracted by past or future concerns. Sodalite helps one integrate all aspects of oneself into the now, so one may use all one’s learning and experiences to deal with the lesson at hand. Sodalite can be effective in achieving hypnotic or trance states. It removes one from the pressures and worries of life and allows one to sink deeply into the subconscious and unconscious minds. It can be used to help one recall one’s dreams or to practice lucid dreaming.


Sodalite helps one to perceive where one’s path lies. It acts as a ‘signpost’ on one’s personal journey, helping one become immersed in the experience of spiritual growth, without obsessing on the ‘magic tricks’ that can go with one’s awakening. For instance, it can open one’s psychic perception, yet  prevent one from becoming egoic about one’s psychic abilities. Sodalite is good for psychic protection and can also clear electromagnetic smog.


Sodalite cultivates detachment from the concerns and worries of everyday life. It can reduce stress and anxiety by allowing one to see one’s reality from a higher, more serene perspective. Sodalite can stabilize emotions, bringing emotional balance and a calming influence. It can help those who are defensive or oversensitive and boosts self-esteem, self-trust and self-acceptance. Sodalite can also help to release fears, phobias and guilt.


Sodalite can be used to help support the regulation of blood pressure, easing water retention and improving cellular hydration. Sodalite is particularly good for cleansing the lymphatic system and organs and therefore is beneficial for and boosts the immune system. It can treat the throat, vocal chords and larynx. It is also a helpful stone for balancing the metabolism and relieving digestive disorders. Sodalite can also help to reduce fevers.


My mind is fully awakened on all levels and working at its highest capacity.

Chthonic Goddesses

Chthonic Goddesses dwelled in the Earth and ruled the Underworld. These potent goddesses of magic and mystery knew the feminine secrets of the eternal round. When these initiatory goddesses appear, a transforming experience is inevitable.



The myth of Eris suggests that when we ignore or repress strife, it returns to create chaos. The card signals a situation that needs to be confronted directly and honestly even though it may be unpleasant or disruptive. Eris recognizes that action is necessary to prevent disconcerting consequences.

Feminine Wisdom

Conflict is an aspect of the human drama. When we confront discord openly, the issue can be resolved and released.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio

The Scorpio Solar Eclipse occurs on November 3rd, 2013 at 4:50 am PST/ 7:50am EST/ 12:50pm GMT. Most of the eclipse can be seen in the Atlantic, southwestern Europe and most of Africa. People on the East Coast of the Americas can see it toward sunset.


A solar eclipse disrupts the energy flow between the Sun and Earth and helps establish new energy channels for new possibilities.

This Scorpio New Moon is a rare hybrid Solar Eclipse, both an annular and total eclipse.  An annular eclipse is when there’s a ring of fire around the Sun; a total eclipse is when the Moon blocks out all of the Sun’s rays. Scorpio is the sign of regeneration and teaches us how to shed our skins and peel away the layers to uncover our gleaming core. Radiance is the result of allowing the uniqueness within each of us to shine forth.

The last eleven degree Scorpio solar eclipse was on November 3, 1994. What changed for you in 1994 and 1995? What did you begin then?  How have you found completion since then?  What is calling to you now?

The Scorpio Solar Eclipse is teaching you to forgive others and yourself. The eclipse message is prepare for new pathways, potentials and possibilities.

The Solar Eclipse symbolizes ‘light of awareness’ and new beginnings in astrology. They are considered to be major turning points and open doorways for opportunities. So consider this New Moon phase intensely energized to be empowered, trust in new ways and express creative energy in positive passionate ways. What intention or ‘symbolic’ seed will you plant within your subconscious?

Define yourself by what is true for you. Live your life from your own terms.  Live from the inside out.

When we have creative interaction with people inspired by original creative visions, we can create a new social order.  We do have to step into our new roles as leaders and visionaries if we are to change our politics and save the world.  With this Solar Eclipse, we come to the end of a cycle and the ground is now fertile for new seeds, new ideas, new intentions.

Scorpio is the Eagle – The Eagle who soars above karma and drama where many folks are entangled. Keep your frequency at the level of Eagle who can see from on high what is true.

Your purpose here is that of the Phoenix – to arise out of the ashes of its own flames and be renewed and reborn. The time is about making right choices and maintaining your focus no matter what is transpiring around you. If you’re experiencing the negative pole of Scorpio – resentment, stubbornness, fear, blame, jealousy, suspicion-you’re on the wrong track; cut it. Regroup and align to Higher Power. Discipline means practicing in every moment.

We no longer have to live life in the same old way. We can envision a more honest and direct way of living. More vibrant and alive. And the best way to bring that vision into reality is to begin right now by looking within, observing the truth and speaking it back to ourselves with awareness and love, knowing that, ultimately, it is this very truth – no matter how unpalatable – which will set us completely free.

There is also wonderful potential for words and communication to be fluid and healing now. Let peace radiate from you silently and infuse into any given situation that requires greater peace, healing or wholeness.


Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio Apothecary Suggestions

Gemstones, Essential Oil’s & Flower Essences’s

Scorpio is associated with the genitals, reproductive system, urinary tract, and large intestines. Pay attention to these parts of the body and areas of health around the time of this New Moon.

Scorpio New Moon Essential Oil

Helichrysum Essential Oil

During the Scorpio New Moon—a time of rebirth and revival—it’s good to know about helichrysum essential oil, itself known for its regenerative properties. Also known as everlasting and immortelle, helichrysum is a favorite when the skin needs assistance in healing scars and wounds. Its regenerative properties may also be experienced on an emotional level, as many find that it helps to release repressed feelings while catalyzing greater self-compassion.

Scorpio New Moon Flower Essence

Pink Monkeyflower

As the Scorpio energy allows us to probe deeply, this New Moon can be an auspicious time to go within and find the aspects of ourselves that we have been hiding, likely because of fear of being vulnerable or concern that if we show who we truly are we may be abandoned. This emotional armoring—usually accompanied by an inherited sense of shame–keeps us from sharing ourselves truly with others (and sometimes even with ourselves) and restricts us from living more freely. Pink Monkeyflower flower essence can help fortify our hearts, assisting us in taking emotional risks so that we can let our selves more fluidly flow through. (Flower essences are made from flower-infused water and work energetically to restore emotional and mental balance. You can find them in natural food stores or holistic pharmacies.)

November 2013 ~ GemStone: Shiva Lingam

Shiva Lingam

Pronunciation: [ˈshi-və, ˈshēˈliŋ-gəm]

Color: grey or tannish stones with reddish stripes, rings and swirls

Appearance: egg shaped

Source: Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, western India


Shiva Lingam

The elongated egg-shape of the Shiva Lingam is actually regarded as symbolic of the phallus of the Hindu god Shiva. In temples it is often paired with a corresponding object symbolizing the female, or the yoni. Yet within its own form, the Shiva Lingam symbolizes both the male and female, as well as the cosmic egg out of which all creation is said to have emerged.

Legend has it that the goddess Parvati fashioned a Shiva Lingam from a fistful of sand at Kanchipuram and there worshiped Shiva. This specimen is known as the Prithvilingam, symbolizing the primordial element Earth. Some of the Shiva Lingams in Hindu temples are called swayambus, denoting that they appeared on their own, untouched by tools or human hands. Shiva Lingams symbolize the primeval energy of the Creator. Hindu devotees believe that at the end of creation, at the time of the great deluge, all the various aspects of God find a resting place in the Lingam- Brahma is absorbed upon the right, Vishnu on the left and Gayatri in the heart. The Shiva Lingam is also said to be a dipiction of the infinite Cosmic Column of Fire.

Metaphysical Healing Properties of Shiva Lingam

Keywords: Kundalini activation, vitality and prana, spiritual transformation and rebirth, enlightenment, oneness with all.

Shiva Lingams resonate deeply with the energies of the Earth, yet they also carry strong energies of Water, Wind, and even Fire. In fact, the fire energy of these stones is so strong that they are capable of activating kundalini energies and charging the entire Chakra System. For those who feel they need a boost of vitality and prana energies, meditating or sleeping with a Shiva Lingam is highly recommended.

Esoteric legends (and now even some scientists) suggest that there is a field of invisible knowledge- similar in some ways to the idea of the collective unconscious- in which the stored psychic energy of human ritual and belief may reside. When one does something that makes a connection to some portion of this field of consciousness, one can tap into the energy of all the past consciousness that has contributed to it. Thus, when one works with a sacred object like the Shiva Lingam, one can receive the benefit of the collective efforts of all those who have used such stones in spiritual pursuits throughout history. Since the Shiva Lingam has been an object of devotion to the Divine and a tailsman of enlightenment for many centuries, one can connect with the energy of all this through working with these stones in the here and now. This is especially true because the stones themselves are composed primarily of microscopic Quartz. Through crystal resonance, and Shiva Lingam can connect energetically to all others throughout the world, in all places and times. It is little wonder that they are such potent spiritual talismans.

Shiva Lingams are emblems of inner transformation, partaking of the Storm element in order to break up patterns of self-limiting habits and beliefs, so one may be flooded with Spirit. Like Shiva, they destroy what is old and corrupt to clear the way for rebirth. Those who wish for such transformation will find in them a fierce and ready ally.

Shiva Lingams harmonize with all forms of Quartz. For spiritual transformation, they have a special affinity with Moldavite.

Healing Properties of Shiva Lingam

The energies of the stones resonate with the Storm element. They amplify the electromagnetic field of the body and stimulate the meridians. Both energetically and metaphysically, Shiva Lingams represent the healing of polarities and the unifying force of creation. The total energetic effect of the stone is one of union and the activation of the sacred kundalini energy that rises up the spine, activating the chakras and bringing enlightenment.


Shiva Lingams remind us that perceived opposites are simply different energetic expressions of the whole. Beyond ‘male’ and ‘female’,’light’ and ‘dark’, ‘good’ and ‘evil’, there us an underlining unifying force. Shiva Lingams aid in uniting all sides of the self and lovingly accepting the differences in others as expressions of the many faces of the one Creator.


Shiva Lingams can assist in overcoming judgement, separation and the need to be ‘individual’ or apart. The word ‘apart’ means separate, yet it is composed of the words ‘a part’, which indicates wholeness. Shiva Lingams help us feel unity, even in situations of apparent separation.


Shiva Lingams stimulate the body’s energetic systems, supporting general healing on all levels. They can be used to treat impotence, infertility and other sexual or reproductive imbalances. Their highest use, however, is for strengthening and balancing the entire body.


I give myself to the Divine- with complete trust and utter devotion I ask to be remade and enlightened.

Chthonic Goddesses

Chthonic Goddesses dwelled in the Earth and ruled the Underworld. These potent goddesses of magic and mystery knew the feminine secrets of the eternal round. When these initiatory goddesses appear, a transforming experience is inevitable.



We encounter Hecate when the paths of our lives converge and we are uncertain which direction to follow. She shepherds the way with her canine companions and lights the path with her torch. Knowing the wisdom of cycles, and their triune phases of birth, death and rebirth, the lunar goddess also represents women’s menstrual cycles and life transitions. She appears on the threshold of change as women enter new phases of their lives. During a transition, Hecate encourages you to neither look back to the past nor rush forward into the future. Petition her wisdom to relieve the anxiety, insecurity and uncertainty that accompany change.

Feminine Wisdom

Create rituals to help you navigate feelings of confusion, loss and disconnection at crossroads and to manage the transition.

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries

The lunar eclipse occurs on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 4:37pm PDT/ 7:37pm EDT/ 11:37 pm GMT.  It can be seen in Europe, Africa and the Americas.


 We have officially entered Eclipse season and are moving toward two upcoming eclipses (10.18 & 11.3). The theme of balance continues as we are feeling pressure to take action in those places where we are out of balance to bring those aspects of our lives into right relation. Action is being called for yet we must practice mindfulness.

Because the Earth blocks the Sun’s light during a lunar eclipse, we see the Moon directly.  A lunar eclipse stirs up the emotional body, bringing up what our patriarchal-shaped egos have repressed or forgotten, making us aware of our hidden motivations.  Usually we hide from fear, so confront your fears and look at your real motivations for doing what you do. Their effect can last between six months and two years. They herald major endings and beginnings in the area where they occur in your natal birth chart

A lunar eclipse can bring up the Shadow; we can act it out unconsciously or recognize and integrate it into our conscious personality and act accordingly.

This full moon phase will be highly active on the emotional level. The Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries urge each person to find harmony between individuality and collaboration.  You will learn a lot about yourself through relating with others now, especially about unresolved emotions that appear during this phase.

This eclipse comes to remind us that who we are is written nowhere but in our own hearts, and it is there we will discover it. As with the last several Full Moons, important transformations helping us see a deeper Mystery are evoked by this Lunation. This calls us to a greater empathy and ability to know shared feelings, and continues to educate us in an emotional understanding.

The Aries eclipse compels you to take action. You may feel highly motivated and ready to blaze a new trail.

Everyone will go through important releases of energy, people, and elements that would prevent them from being the spiritual potential they hold in the depths of their Being. This is a threshold, and some people cannot go through it with us, nor can we cross their threshold with them. So let go and unveil yourself with focus and compassion.

Hold on lightly not tightly is the Aries eclipse message. Maintaining a light attachment to relationships, situations and outcomes proves wise.  Hang loose, don’t make any rash decisions. Go with the flow and be patient. Take your time with important matters.

Mars shows that we will be able to count on our ‘invisible helpers’ when it seems all else fails, and that these experiences will show us hidden powers in our Being. Regardless of the crisis, we will have major angelic (Devic) help at our disposal.

Things will be very unique in how they unfold over the next few months, and we will see a lot with new eyes, new understanding, and new skills. Much will be released, so stay focused on your Spiritual Brothers and Sisters and deepen your connection with them.

Embrace change. Be the change agent for your life. Change can feel painful at times. When you take the lead change will feel easier. Do what is right for you.

We are creating the New Earth together with our thoughts, words and deeds. The choices we make today determine our tomorrow. Therefore, it is recommended to see where you can take few steps towards practicing the quality of courage, confidence and using your personal power with compassion and wisdom.

The potential:  A feeling greater sense of courage, confidence and ability to take charge or initiative to take care of personal needs and well-being. From a Soul-level perspective, one is able to take action with assertiveness, compassion and wisdom guiding the way.

Flower Essences


If you have a very strong sense that it’s not the best time to take action and yet you feel a compulsion to do so anyway, consider Impatiens flower essence. It may help to stem a sense of urgency that is not truly related to the situation at hand but rather to the rushing energetic that could seem pervasive at this time.

Scarlet Monkeyflower

If you find yourself feeling piqued because of injustices but feel that you don’t have the right to express your anger, consider Scarlet Monkeyflower. It can help you connect to and rightfully own the full range of your feelings, and therefore express them in a more conscious, holistic, and self-empowered way.

Tiger Lily Flower Essence

If you’re looking for support to transition from a solely go-it-alone strategy to one where you can clearly identify—and as importantly, allow—productive collaborations, consider Tiger Lily flower essence. It can encourage a shift from self-identified isolation to a receptivity towards participating in cooperative service with others.
