Thursday Thoughts of a Crystal

Appreciation goes a long way. It can inspire the most down trodden of souls to rise to new heights and experience new love. People react to such a change. Hugs increase. Polite requests appear. Memories are shared that you did not even know were present.
What you do is noticed. You are important. Your cup of tea may not be for the masses, but there is an audience. When you are enjoying yourself, people return that energy to you. This has been my experience over the last two weeks. From the surprise donation to the constant barrage of hugs that I am now receiving on a daily basis. There is an inner flame that hasn’t been present in such a long time.
My only hope is that all of you can follow the truest desires of your heart. For some that is finding the love of their lives while others probably need to escape to the French Riviera. Whatever it may be, go after it with all of the power that has been bestowed upon you. One Love.

Happiness in the Fall

When this year began, mixed feelings ran rampant. My broken heart lay all over the floor while spiritually, an elevation began. Frustration, confusion, and inner chaos ruled the world. My job was dreary and there were little to no performances. As the summer crept upon me, I looked at my favorite season with dead pan eyes. I threw myself into a new endeavor. Studied. Highlighting. Questions. Passed the test. Green shirt and all. Motivation & encouragement. Being around emotionally intelligent people was completely new to me.
Hurricane season beckoned a return to my regular day job. I was less than enthusiastic but the mortgage awaits no emotion. My mind focused on the student appreciation from last year and how much little hearts sang for music. Compositions were arranged for their delight. Funding suddenly appeared for a project. The spark was ignited. Ideas strike me at all hours of the day. My entire body exists with an inner euphoria. Little people request hugs. Questions that show engagement are more frequent. All of this out of the middle of nowhere.
The emptiness that I felt has gone the way of the world. There is a reason for me to wake before the sun. My phone rings in the evening. It keeps me happy and a part of the world. All of the bad feelings that pestered me during the first half of 2019 have simply ended. Happiness feels good.


As I settled into my repertoire, I felt his eyes upon me. His entire demeanor had changed. The conversations around him stopped as he faded into another world with me at its center. He turned himself for a better view and his ears began to take in the soothing sounds of the music. It was not long before he told me how much he appreciated my performance. A smile crossed my face as I said thank you as I am so used to being ignored. He returend to his seat and slowly eased back into the conversations that he had left long ago. It was then that I decided that I would not only captivate him. I was going to take the entire room into another world.

I closed my music books and turned off the stand lights. My fingers found the strings and slowly I began to play. One by one the heads turned. The low hum of talking ceased. My improvisations seemed to have taken over every person in the room. Where they went, I do not know because music can cast such a personal spell that your heart is free to roam wherever it wants. What I do know is that there was an attraction last night. There was an attraction between a man and the music. As the night came to a close, that smile crossed my face again knowing that my job was complete.

It has been my good fortune in life to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful women on the planet; they are called my sisters. It is often that I will find myself situated at a table awaiting one for tea. As she walks in, the heads begin to turn. Faces light up. For some strange reason the waiter becomes extremely attentive. What has brought about this turn of events? Well, everyone loves a beautiful smiling girl that is obviously confident about herself.
Something about it simply calls to people and they want a slice of that pretty picture for themselves. Its almost as if her mere presence uplifts them into another sphere where they are free to smile and be happy with themselves. Perhaps she gave them permission. It is always a thrill to observe.

There is something to be said about surrounding yourself with things and people that will raise your vibration. If someone has already figured it out and is walking the way of their path with light, it would do you some good to take notes. I have sought out teachers that have that certain element that calls to me. There within lays a connection. Some of those teachers have become friends and extremely strong allies whom support me to the highest extent. Because of their efforts, I am a better person with a grander scope. There are experiences that are available to enhance oneself in the most beautiful places around the world. You have only to open your eyes and pick which one you would like to have.

The attraction takes a bit of self love as well. Whatever you are attracted to you rings that bell because it is something that you want to have flourishing from your own garden. If you are able to cultivate it as your own, then naturally you begin to love yourself just a little bit more. This then makes you radiate a special glow that everyone can see; others yet will feel it and then want to be connected to you. Its a beautiful circle of flowing positive energy that you can use to your advantage.

Jealousy. Envy. Self-hate. These feelings have never made sense to me. If someone has something that I like, I ask the person how did she get it. If you are envious of someone else, that means that you have failed to count your own blessings. We do not know about the inner turmoil that each person has. What did that person go through to get to that success? There is always something that would surprise us. Self-hate is simply dangerous. This hole leaves you living in a dark void filled with negativity. It can make you tired and quite lonely. Who can see you if you do not like yourself? That is why it is always important to work on your insecurities. It could be as simple as talking to a friend or as complex as therapy depending on where you are. Crystal work and prayer are two things that can work in combination with whatever you are already using if you want to incorporate such things.

There is nothing like being in the presence of an expert to work on that part of the equation that makes you feel like hiding. Being able to voice it aloud and get excellent support is truly a wonderful feeling.

Yes, I have them all the time. I have been asked to create a workshop that focuses on practical everyday ways of empowering oneself. I have created a list and continue to do my research and reflections. My hope is to offer it during the early summer as the schedule for the first couple of months has already been posted. One of my objectives next year is to share how spirituality must be woven into every aspect of life for that ultimate in support. It is yours to use. Why not put it to work for you:) The beautiful part about it is that no two people use it the same way. It is unique and executed according to the needs of the individual. Which reminds me….there is a reading to be done. XXOO


I have never done a formal prayer for others before but felt the need to do so today. I gathered prayer requests from the Circle of Sisterhood and put together a ceremony of prayer for their needs as well as my own. It brought me great joy to do so.

Sage was used to invite being of light into the sacred space. Quartz crystals were used in the pyramid as well as a rock formation. A white prayer candle was placed in the middle. I wrote down three words to summarize each request and asked the universe to assist the desires of each woman into manifestation. I soon began improvising on my harp to lend melodic vibrations to the air while enhancing the prayers. Afterwards, I received messages via meditation and shared them with each sister. It brought me a great deal of joy to execute this on their behalf.

It is my belief that in order to truly receive a blessing myself, I must use my gifts for the advancement of others. It is in service to my sisters where I feel the most effective and fulfillment. The heartfelt appreciation does so much for me. Walking with the knowledge that I was able to do something to benefit another woman is so enriching.

As we continue to work together to bring the return of the divine feminine, the masculine energy will slowly fall into its proper place: in a proper balance with the feminine energy. All of us are connected and can truly make our world better by uniting and staying connected.
