You might be surprised to see a new look on this blog, even blogs need new outfits… I am currently working to improve my web savvy and for sure I need lots of help in that department. The  crystals I often use to help me to stay less distracted has been my two Amethyst points that I keep by  my computer.

Margherita's Amethyst teeth crystals

I just love Amethyst, and these two rare crystals in particular, 5″ and 6.5″ long teeth-like crystals are my preferred hand pieces. I just hold them to get clarity and the effect of more clarity and acceptance is palpable most immediately. Most of the time however, I just look at them briefly to re-adjust my eyes after looking at the computer screen, it relaxes my eyes as well. It is so soothing and helpful to me.  You could try it too, and if you don’t have a crystal like this, you can just softly focus on the photograph of them and receive the same effect. The trick is use your mind and then close your eyes and visualize that you are holding them.

It would be fun to know how this small practice works for you. Please share it with friends or comment below… Blessings, Margherita

This is a message from my friend Julei who created an amazing Gem Elixir, see details at the end of the message. It is also an invitation to a labyrinth walk on May 3, 2011 in Toronto. Join if you like!

Crystal Mandala Layout for Gem Elixir

Welcome back! The earth seems to finally leaving winter snows behind so we can exit our hibernations. Hope this finds each of you surrounded by Love and Light.

First, Isabel and I want to express what a pleasure it has been for the past few years to share these gatherings with all of you. The accumulated teachings revealed and energized by the spectrum of understandings and histories each of you brings have been inspiring to say the least. We are grateful to all beings who participated. Each event has been perfect in its actualization. Way back when Isabel and I started this journey together, it was because it “felt right” to do so. That feeling has only been deepened and reinforced since. We enjoy tremendous satisfaction and nourishment from being surrounded by such an incredible network of conscious, awakened beings. Thank you all!

Across the world we are seeing the “communal heart” and “global consciousness” communicating the many ways to overcome ignorance, greed and ego’s illusions of separateness. The mediums are now the internet – YouTube – global cellular networks — GPS locators. These are the “Aquarian age technologies” predicted long ago to enable a “instantaneous, psychic connectivity of humans”. Those who brought that message may not have understood exactly what form that would take, but here it is! So what are we becoming aware of with these technologies? It is easy to be overwhelmed trying to ‘make sense’ of it all. Please keep your focus on revealing, naming and transforming all corrupted uses of power, resources and living energy. There is a lot of “spring cleaning” and redistribution of resources to provide for and uplift as many sentient beings as possible. As always, all “work” begins first and foremost with what we are each willing to do and be accountable for on a personal scale. What does that look like for you?

2011’s theme is “Nourishing the Soul Garden: Planting the New Paradigm”

2011 began with a very different quality of energy and message. In its roots is the reminder that we are always immersed in the richness of our innate wisdoms and at every moment have the potential to reawaken that. How does your garden grow? What deeply nourishes you and opens you to embodying the divine and sacred as you experience that?

This year can be:
~ a time for reflection and gratitude on what has been achieved on every level of your soul.
~ a time to deeply recognize that which is ending/closing/leaving/completing and finding ways to embody that in serenity and peace.
~ a time to acknowledge how you are choosing to take your power as a conscious spiritual being and making that so in every moment.
~ a time to walk beside others to honour their unique paths in unity, gratitude and respect for all the ways there are to be.
~ a time to explore spring cleansing at all the levels you are working to prepare your personal “garden” for the next growing season.

The essence of the 2011 message is that you already have access to the optimal tools, experiences, teachings and resources to evolve in alignment with your soul purpose
.   Yes! Really!  No need to rush around searching for something different, the right teacher, the right paradigm, the right place. Review what you have already gathered in your tool kit and relax — those tools work. In fact, all tools work if you let them. That is why there is so many paths up that mountain. Feelings of restlessness and urgency now may be about taking the work to the next level. Give yourself the gift of taking it deeper HERE and NOW.

Through the gate of the May New Moon, in tune with the uprising energies of spring and the awakening rejuvenation of our earthly bodies, we invite all those who want to co-create this gathering to walk the High Park Labyrinth on May 3, 2011. We will be onsite between 5:30 and 7:30 pm – come walk amongst the gift and grace of common purpose. This is a “non-denominational” gathering so bring your own tools, your own nourishment and gather as equals.

In honouring the new energies, please choose to participate or not based on the following guidelines. We each take responsibility to:  
~*~ gather when and where the converging energies promote healing and balance

      ~*~ create a safe, respectful and compassionate container for the diversity of participants and belief systems
~*~ witness without judgment the experiences of yourself and others
~*~ honour circle work and each participant’s choice to reflect, share or be in silence in their turn
~*~ leave any place we gather at in more harmony and beauty than when we arrived
~*~ co-create for the highest benefit of all sentient beings


As always, we recognize there are many ways to celebrate and walk the spiritual path. Honour what calls you. Find your bliss and move it, move it!

Peace to all,
Julei and Isabel

2011 CRYSTAL MANDALA GEM ELIXIR
I am particularly excited about the message that came through this past winter’s solar and lunar eclipses and planetary alignments to the galactic center. I am grateful to all who helped manifest the message as a Crystal Mandala with its corresponding Gem Elixir. Photos of that two month process will be posted soon — it has been percolating pending completion of the winter snows! The potentized elixir, guidelines for its use and a copy of the crystal message statement will be available for $20 from Julei. Please email me at birthpassages@rogers.com if you are interested.

 

I look forward to promoting and supporting the diversity of events many of you continue to generate. Please let me know what you are doing and whether you wanted the word spread.

 

~ Please forward and share this email with respect for us all ~
~ If you received this and do not resonate, simply delete and release the energy back to the universe ~
Peace.

 

Competent healers use crystals like tuning forks to affect the imbalances we all have in the body. The vibrational signatures of crystals can help you as well, in a meditation or healing session for health, emotional freedom or prosperity.

A crystal layout is providing a combined signature vibration of all the stones used in that layout. If you take an intentional picture of this layout, you can use the picture as the tool or target to magnetize your healing or meditation. The picture contains a complex signature that you want to use for your own healing.

Images are powerful! Just look to advertising, they transmit energy signatures that trigger you to respond. If you are aware of it, great! If you are not, well look out, because it will direct your actions subconsciously. And that is what an advertiser’s goal is!

Using images and symbols intended for wisdom, health and healing is also used by skilled therapists and all spiritual traditions. Knowing this, I created images with crystals that could help. Combined with my interest in tarot, a Crystal Tarot was first birthed in 2005 as an exploration of the 22 Archetypal Arcana energy signatures. It is one of 29 areas of crystal use I describe in ”The Crystal Lotus Handbook”

You may use the Tarot already to find answers to personal questions. Originally Tarot was a way with which the Egyptian or other ancient traditions shared archetypal wisdom. A practical example would be discovering how some of your beliefs and desires influence you to behave and decide in ways that perhaps do not serve you.

When I am must make a decision, or have a question about my life. I can use the ”The Crystal Lotus Tarot” to clarify my options. By meditating with the card I pick, I give myself an energetic boost (crystal energy signature) and some time to process. The result is better informed answers that resonate stronger to the core or my heart.

Love is in the Spring of your Heart,

Margherita
PS. For those of you in Toronto, I will bring a few copies to my crystal talk Saturday March 19th (It is the Full Moon!) at Odyssey Books and Gifts. See us also at the Body Mind and Spirit Expo March 25-27, 2011.

Archetype is defined as group of behavioral patterns (thought form patterns) that manifests as our persona or personality types to be worked out in this life time.

Arcana means archetype, and in the Tarot designate the 22 Major Arcana. They are the energetic signatures that the universe provides for you – your gifts and challenges. You must work with them on daily basis in the most skilful way you can. When you know what is coming your way you can make better choices. It is one of the simplest guide tools available. (The Minor Arcana on the other hand has more to do with the nitty-gritty details of interactions, persons and your personal preferences).

A Labyrinth is a powerful meditation tool, walk it to solve your problems.

How to Walk a Labyrinth

from wikiHow – The How to Manual That You Can Edit
If you have a problem you can use the Labyrinth to help solve it. A Labyrinth is a meditation tool consisting of a walkable single line path. When troubled by disturbing emotions or unfortunate events in your life walking a Labyrinth can help resolve your inner discomfort and still your mind enough for you to get clarity of what is going on. This article describes how this process can be done.

Steps

  1. Stand in front of the entrance to the Labyrinth. State your intention as clearly as possible. For example: I want a solution to my problem with … It could be anything that is troubling you.
  2. Then center yourself by a couple of deep breaths. This is important because doing this you instruct your subconscious and all other parts of yourself to pay attention to your sincere wish of solving your problem. Some prefer to also say a short prayer or smudge themselves, depending on which faith you adhere to.
  3. Begin your walk. The first step sets the pace for your walk. It can be fast or slow. If one is very upset: fast walking in lets the emotion dissipate easier. Most people in my experience try slowing down their mind by slower walking. Your walk becomes a meditation when you surrender all your problems and just walk. Other parts of you have now a chance to process your request of a solution.Continue to walk as you didn’t have any problems at all, let it all go. Surrender to the activity of attentive walking.Some walk barefoot to feel the earth connection more clearly. Let the burden (your problem) fall off your shoulder. Various parts of your being are now processing your wish for solution. All you have to do is to let it incubate and not interfere, let it be and let go of any expectations.Continue to walk as you didn’t have any problems at all, let it all go.
  4. Reaching the center. You may stop here for awhile, sit or lay down if you feel like it. The main thing is to let yourself surrender totally to your inner process. I sometimes remain an hour in the center. It feels so good to have all the time you need.
  5. Walking out. When you are ready, just walk out. Accept the insights and gifts you may have received. Adopt a sense of gratitude will always facilitate resolutions. Offer your thanks for what you have learned.

Crystal Spheres are ideal for massage as they provide both energy and safe, gentle touch.

Sphere Massage is an ideal activity for total relaxation. Imagine getting a professional massage for yourself. Beginning with your hands, you may use a small sphere and move it over the entire area of your palms. If you move with tiny circular movements you may affect the tiny reflex points that are located in the palms and fingers. These reflex points are connected with all the organs in your body. By touching the reflex points you can harmonise energy blockages, then you body have a chance to balance and heal.

Crystal Sphere massage can be applied to the head and the neck. And while waiting in the dentist’s office you may use a small sphere to ease tensions and possible anxious feelings. This is very helpful for you to be in a calm state during any medical procedure.

A larger sphere can be used on legs and muscle areas and a smaller one for the hands and head.

The type of sphere you use may also affect the area you are applying it to. A Rose Quartz is usually beneficial during emotional times and can be applied to tone your emotional body especially when applied around the heart and the rib cage.

Crystal Touch as in sphere massage is described  in detail in The Crystal Lotus Handbook and I will include more about how to do it for maximum effect in future post on the Crystal Dakini’s blog. Let me know if you have a particular question relating to Crystal Massage that can help others please share it.

Blessings,

Margherita

Is this un-attainable? Well it is up to each one of us to fulfill isn’t it? I certainly want it for myself. And I know that if all people have what they need, I too will be totally fulfilled. So what needs to happen on this planet?

I for sure can only make decisions for myself, even a small child is making life changing decisions even at a very early age. It is proven that what we decide in each moment is really affecting us later in life tremendously.

In the words of the Buddha: what you did before is what your life is now, what you do now is how you will become in the future.   I am a lazy person and want stuff happening fast to serve me, but I have come to learn that to serve others is far more rewarding in this regard. Why is it so?

It is because humans are social and cannot be isolated entities, without others we are nothing, and couldn’t survive very long. So if we offer ourselves to aid others we in turn get help when we need it.

Will you help a home less person in the gutter, or turn away in disgust. The smell and the soiled pants might be seriously revolting you, but could you extend a helping hand to him or her that would really make a difference?

Peace and prosperity means different things depending on in what your situation is! I. For me, I treasure very much the old stove someone’s aged mother left on the curb because she at the age of 86 needed a more convenient kitchen. I am helped by this as now I have 4 elements to cook my food on. It doesn’t matter that the oven underneath doesn’t work properly.

Everything can be seen as a treasure, but it takes the eye of humility and awareness to discover it. More people than ever are searching for the real truth, which includes me. I consider myself very fortunate, to live in the country, breathe fresh air and have friends who support my work. It is really only me who can decide if I am happy or not.

Does this lead anywhere or are you only ranting? You might say. Well, yes I was supposed to talk about how you too can make the choices you want, but this reverie about peace came before me and seemed more important. What is peace?

Place the object for forgiveness inside the Dioptase grid to purify yourself!

Peace is an elevated emotion that keeps me really calm and contented right there in the centre. Nothing is further needed, nada! It is it! I do not need anything else.  I don’t need any drugs or coffee or support or anything else from anybody. It is just peace, as this feeling continue I feel I must share it with others. It is a joyous feeling and I yearn to see others also feeling it.

If you like some crystals to help feeling peaceful you might try, Blue Kyanite to clear the old away and bury that old hatchet forever, or Blue Calcite for reducing your anxiety and stress.

So this is my wish to see peace and prosperity for all of you… Happy New Year!

Love and Prosperity to All,

Margherita

Create Healing Jewelry Courses

 

How do we affect our lives to the better? There are lots of methods we can use from meditation to medication and applying various therapies. We may also attempt to remedy our condition with a conscious choice of intention, and take charge of our life with appropriate action to create a happier life for ourselves. I feel this option is most ideal. We reap the immediate benefits by feeling accomplished, healed or more empowered by our own effort.

Crystal Healing Talisman, using "Birds Nest" Gem Weave.

One way to address the myriads of problems we may have is to create a Crystal Healing Talisman, which is an object personally created using gemstones. Depending on which condition or situation you seek to address, you may choose one or more stones, gems or crystals and bind them together with string or wire. As most are not professional jewelers, I propose a method that anyone can use without hi-tech tools. It is called Gem Weaving. Regular wire wraps may also work but in the method I have taught we “weave our intention” as our work progress toward the finished project. The object then becomes  a true Crystal Healing Talisman. Without healing intention we have only some stone wrapped with wire.

Personal Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman.

A Crystal Healing Talisman can include a simple pendant worn at the heart, or an entire necklace called Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman, both are used similarly with the difference of the focused personal intention. Crystal Healing Talismans as a single pendent is mostly used to address a specific problem or situation in contrast to the Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman, which is used to embrace a larger goal or vision for ourselves. The Crystal Healing Mandala Talisman is best created by the person themselves as it is a very empowering process.

An excellent example of a specialized crystal healing talisman is what I offer as a therapeutic session for clients: the “Crystal Color Life Spiral Talisman” that clients use for three months or more to gain regain balance. Learn more about how to receive a “Crystal Color Life Spiral” or create Crystal Healing Jewelry by visiting the their pages on this site. You can also read more about Crystal Healing Talismans in the Crystal Lotus Handbook.

 

Finally it is here!

Rose Quartz is the Self-Love Stone

Well the obvious is that one is a plant and the other is a rock, but what is remarkable with this comparison is that both access the portals to the heart. When I see a rose I first think of its scent which makes me feel wonderful especially if the rose was given by someone I love. Rose Quartz however points me to a mellow feeling that is harder to describe.

How many of you can truly say that you really love yourself? Real Self Love, I propose, is the first step to develop our consciousness, without it we are caught in the  conflicts and dramas that we see in the world daily, which cause endless suffering. How is that so? To really Love is to give up how something is supposed to be, it is to truly accept what is, so when we direct that love to include ourselves we accept who we are without judgment.

Rose Quartz in my experience is a powerful healing tool. I feel that it helps to connect me to my inner child and to the gestation time before birth. Our first beginnings on the earth may seem hostile to many and in healing early traumas, Rose Quartz may help to protect the vulnerable state we were in at that time. By feeling safe and protected in a healing situation, we may dare to approach and find reconciliation of unfortunate events in our early life.

How to work with Rose Quartz? Rose Quartz is Yin Fire, the feminine aspect of the fire element in the Crystal Moon Mandala. Obtain a piece of Rose Quartz and before bed place it on your heart. Think of yourself as being in a bubble of Rose Quartz creating a soft pink field around you. Let that soft but powerful field purify any negative thoughts and emotions you may have about yourself in the same way a loving mother would soothe her baby to sweet sleep. Invite a sense of peace and surrender to your inner guidance. You truly know how to heal, if you listen deeply.

Given a perfect pink rose we may feel acknowledged and loved by another. Rose Quartz on the other hand teaches us to love ourselves, and in that state we would not need outside approval.

Crystal Blessings,

Margherita
