For the week commencing on: Monday, 23 April 2018

Crystal Colours: Lavender, White and Pink

All chakras

Music is a universal language. Music can be found in all areas of the global – in every culture, in every religion, and in every country. While we may not speak each other’s language, Music holds the unique vibration of what doesn’t need to be spoken, but yes, of a vibration, of rhythm, it opens up your psyche to all opportunities and all possibilities. The Spirit Quartz, hold the same healing intentions as music of sound, to soothe, to express emotion, and to heal all our chakras.

The Spirit Quartz also wishes to help you embrace life in all its wonder. While life can have its ups and downs, this powerful and healing crystal can help you find balance, harmony and pure joy in all things if you simply embrace the small things. Yes, the little things.

How often has music throughout your life brought back a memory? From a moment in your past: From your first day at school? From your very first job or even your very first kiss? Both good and bad – music always implements our memories of what we wish to see, of what we wish to remember, and in return, this is again about the healing vibrations that we receive.

Music opens you to the higher vibration of your own spiritual knowledge base. If you are open to this, you are able to receive more wisdom to a journey that you are in, in this very moment. Perhaps you need to ask Spirit a question or topic that you need guidance on – and you will get a reply to this. Spirit Quartz helps you to awaken your own musical and psychic abilities, because of this higher and healing vibrations.

So in brief:

  • Opens you to your natural gifts, talents and passions related to sound and music
  • Opens you to the music of the Cosmos
  • Connects you to the Fairy realm and nature spirit, to a sense of magic
  • Balances the chakras, and the energy field, creating wellbeing
  • Invokes balance and inspiration
  • Aligns to the pure joy and freedom that is your birthright

With love and Crystal Blessings,

Pluto Retrograde – 22nd of April 2018: Being Fearless & Unleashing your inner Warrior

Pluto Retrograde – 22nd of April 2018: Being Fearless and Unleashing your inner Warrior

Pluto retrograde 2018 starts on April 22 at 21° Capricorn and ends on September 30 at 18° Capricorn. The aspects and fixed star involved in Pluto retrograde 2018 will unleash your inner warrior. This is an ideal time to take towards a more aggressive and direct to deal with your Pluto power and control issues.

What is Pluto?

Pluto is a dwarf planet. A dwarf planet travels around, or orbits, the sun just like other planets. But it is much smaller. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh. However, there is still the ongoing debate in both astrology, astronomy and the scientific communities in general to allow Pluto to be seen as an actual planet. Pluto is only 2,300 kilometres wide. That means it is 1,400 miles wide.

Pluto Retrograde April 2018

In terms of Zodiac astrology, Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio. Usually when Pluto is direct in orbit and not in retrograde (meaning going backwards) the energies are about transformation, renewal, birth, and new beginnings.

However, since Pluto is in retrograde, this means that Pluto will have an impact on everyone to some degree of how we control our thoughts, our words, and our actions.  In other words, we will have a difficult to let go of old habits, and even a fear of change. There is also a present fear of your personal power being taken away, or being too easily influenced.

We may all be reflecting back on our past, our past mistakes, of what we could have done, or what we have failed to do. Nevertheless, don’t allow this to dampen your spirits. Allow this time to teach you a valid lesson to know not to repeat this for your bright and happy future.

Unleashing your Inner Warrior – a time to be fearless!

While Pluto is in transit, during this phrase between now and until September 30th, 2018, this is a regular cycle of which it is in opposition to the Sun. Unlikely with all other outer planets, this little retrograde will have not as much impact or concern as other inner planet retrogrades.

This is a time of deep inner reflection, as with all retrogrades – as you review, renewal, and rejuvenate during this time. It is an excellent time to see and look at your personal power you’re your own personal control of your life. Are you valuing your own personal power? If anyone or any situation is controlling or manipulating you or your life – now is the time to let them go. Now is the time to practice your own assertiveness – not in a rude way, but to understand your own professional and personal boundaries for yourself and others.

This isn’t a time for power tripping but a time for elimination. A time to understand and realise your own habits – whether they are good or bad and take positive step to change. Think of it this way – if you want to seek change, you need to act on this change. But the most destructive behaviour or addiction, the harder it is to give it up and it won’t be easy to go cold turkey.

This is a fascinating time to seek what you are both personally and professionally passionate about. Are you driven or self-motivated to step out of your comfort zone? If you are, you can overcome any obstacle or challenge that presents itself to you over the next 5 months.

Pluto in Retrograde as well as in its transition phrase also allows you make you feel courageous, strong, and successful in both your personal and professional life. You may also feel that you are lucky in many aspects of your life. Be thankful and grateful for these wonderful experiences that will come to you.

Please remember that you don’t have to force change or have to react to unexpected change. So this is a natural development in your life associated with increased power and influence, spiritual and personal growth, wealth creation and professional advancement. Higher and Powerful forces are working behind the scenes to promote you to a higher level. A strong urge to reform something in your life will coincide with an opportunity to do just that.

Pluto will go direct (forward) on September 30th, 2018 at 18° Capricorn

With love and blessings,

Card of the Day: ROSE – ATTRACT A RELATIONSHIP

Love is a very powerful force. Love can conquer all.
Love is a very powerful force. Love can conquer all.

Card of the Day: ROSE – ATTRACT A RELATIONSHIP

(Courtesy of The Secret Language of Color Cards by Inna Segal) 

Rose is a color of romance, deep love and affection. It assists in opening the heart in attracting a healthy and soulful relationship. The color Rose is also excellent to help to raise your self-esteem, and to help with any form of loneliness or  sadness. It is also great to release worry or stress.

We all have many relationships or friendships in our lives. We all attract those whom we want in our lives. Relationships come in many different forms: platonic, friendships, family relations, furry babies, and acquaintances.

If you are seeking that special someone – that one person whom you want to have a healthy, soulful, and kindred relationship with, you need to ask yourself, if you are truly ready to have such a person in your life.  If you are seeking this person – remember that the color Rose can help you attract this person. Remember that real love  and true love, takes time, effort and understanding. It takes a while, and sometimes months or years to really know a person.  Unfortunately, it isn’t like the movies, or music, sadly.

True love, and real love, if you are lucky to find it – does exist. Sometimes you love this person, sometimes you don’t. But you love this person wholeheartedly – you see them at their best, and at their worst. Real love means that you find a sustainable soul that you can share your life with; your ups and downs;your joyous and happiest moments; your disappointments; and your fondest moments.

Like a Rose, while it may contain prickly thorns that could hurt you, try and see the beauty of love. There is much beauty in the eye of the beholder in a relationship in love.

Love is all around us. Be open to love.

Love will always bring two beautiful souls together.

With love and blessings,

Libby

Saturn Retrograde 17 April 2018 – A TIME OF REFLECTION

Saturn Retrograde 17 April 2018 –  A TIME OF REFLECTION 

Saturn Retrograde 2018 starts on April 17 at 9° Capricorn and ends on September 6 at 2° Capricorn. The planet Saturn, is the planet of wisdom, discipline and of karma. During this time of transition, this Saturn retrograde is a time where karma is being sorted out, by time and space.

On a karmic level, things may seem blurry to you. Everything in existence – the past, presence and future is now rolled into one. Karma is seen as both good and bad, both as a way to teach as valid lessons of life, of existence, and both in this current life and from past lives. With this current Saturn in retrograde, the karma that you have gathered from all your learnt lessons, from all your lives, will related to how responsible you have been in the past.

This isn’t a test,  but more a curiosity state of reflection. The lessons associated with Saturn retrograde relate to your thoughts, words and actions. It will be especially challenging for individuals who have a history of teasing or verbally abusing others. Gloomy thoughts, bad news, loneliness, could have a negative effect of your mental state of mind.

During this Retrograde phrase, it is a time to focus on a positive state of mind, however it may intensify or you could find it difficult to have negative thinking, once Saturn goes direct on September 6, you will develop an understanding of why you may have developed these depressive moods.

Try not to allow negative thinking to stop you from achieving your dreams and aspirations. While, we can’t control the words, thoughts and actions of other people, we can certainly control our own. We can also learn to communicate clearly and have patience with others as well as ourselves.

Briefly, Saturn in retrograde want to ensure that we are all making the right life choices for ourselves in terms of our professional lives, our ambitions and our long-term goals.

With all retrogrades they don’t last forever, and it just ensure a time that is need to make us all stronger, courageous and braver people.

With love and blessings,

Putting Light into LightWork

Putting Light into LightWork

So, have you noticed the term lightworker recently? I have used it numerous times in my blog posts. A lightworker is basically someone who is called into the healing professional of light and love. Their life purpose was already chosen from them by God, the Divine Creator before they were even born.

Doreen Virtue’s definition of a lightworker is as follows: “Lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. Each lightworker is here for a sacred purpose. Very often, however, life on earth with its material focus creates a form of amnesia in lightworkers. They then forget their divine and perfect identities, and also their abilities to miraculously help the earth and all living creatures. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.” (Courtesy of: http://www.angeltherapy.com/blog/8-traits-lightworkers)

Lightworkers come in every single professional – it doesn’t necessarily need to be a spiritual professional in order for a lightworker to fulfill their job. Think about every single professional you come across – there is an Angel, an Archangel and a Spirit Guide supporting them along their spiritual journey. There are lawyers, counsellors, teachers, doctors, nurses, builders and many others who are lightworkers.

How do we know who is a lightworker?  Here is a very brief list of how to spot a lightworker:

  • You feel connected to all living things including the animals and the environment
  • You wish to make the world a better place
  • You empathize and feel compassion towards other people
  • You see beauty in all Creation
  • You feel other people’s emotions
  • You wish to bring more peace, joy and light to the world
  • You want to help other people

We are all called to be lightworkers. We are ONE with the Divine as the Divine is ONE with US. So there’s nothing we can’t do.

When we embrace the light and love that God, the Divine has to offer us, we are truly taking our true course of action and our purpose.

So how can we put light into lightwork? By being true to ourselves. By loving ourselves and being kind to all people from all different walks of life. The most highest vibration anyone can have is love. Now, this doesn’t need to be romantic love, although for many unique souls – finding a soul partner is very special! But finding love in all things – in love, within our own unique being, is just as special.

Finding a soul connection to the Divine – is putting light in lightwork. It is like a telephone wire – a true lifeline to all the support you need to help yourself, to help others, to help our world, and the beloved Cosmos.

With much love to my fellow lightworkers! <3 <3 <3 <3

Libby xoxox

Lightworkers are each and everyone of us. They are those who only seek out the light!

Native Wisdom for White Minds

Native Wisdom for White Minds:

Daily Reflections Inspired by the Native People of the World

By Anne Wilson Schaef

For April 17th:  WALKING WITH THE WAKAN-TANKA

“Remember and think about the closeness of the Wakan-Tanka (The Great Spirit, or the Creator) if they believe in this wisdom, it will give them endless strength and hope. “

 – Frank Fools Crow
Lakota Chief and Spiritual Leader, American Indian

Frank Fools Crows was one of the clearest and most powerful people I have ever known. Never was I in the presence of anyone who was consistently walked so close to  the Wakan-Tanka. His entire life was devoted to treading the spiritual path and healing those who came to him. Just being in his presence was a source of strength and healing, and he shared his knowledge and wisdom with all who came. He never discriminated.

For Fools Crow, Waken-Tanka, was not an abstraction Wakan-Tanka was a friend, an adviser, an expert, a physician, a colleague and a constant companion. Wakan-Tanka was a sponsor and a mentor,. Wakan-Tanka was a boss, always, and one only had to walk the path of the Wakan-Tanka and consult with Wakan-Tanka in all one’s affairs. And Frank Fools Crow did.

Wakan-Tanka is not an abstraction of our lives. Wakan-Tanka is our lives.

Chakras: Centers of Our Life Force

Chakras: Centers of Our Life

What are Chakras?

The Sanskrit word for wheel is CHAKRA. Our human bodies are made up of 7 major chakras or wheels which balance and align our bodies into balance, harmony and peace. All of which is essential to our lives.

The 7 Chakras:

Briefly, I will explain our 7 chakras that we all have and that we can all connect to.

Root or Base Chakra/Muladhara   

Colour associated with Chakra: Red 
Element associated with Chakra:
Earth 
1st Chakra in the 7 chakra system –
can be found at the base of the spine 

Found at the root of the spine, the corresponding locations for this chakra are the perineum, along the first three vertebrae at the pelvic plexus.  This chakra is represented at the cone of energy, beginning at the base of the spine, going downwards and then slightly bent up. The root, otherwise known as the base chakra grounds us deep within the Earth, as this chakra  element is Earth. grounding our being, our spirit our everything. This chakra is known as ‘Muladhara’ in Sanskrit.

The key functions or characteristics of the root chakra are:

  • Security and safety

Heart Chakra / Anahata

Colour associated with Chakra: Green
Element associated with Chakra: Air
4th Chakra in the 7 chakra system – located around the center of the chest area (but not where the actual heart organ is!) 

Located in the center of the chest, however it should be noted that the this energy center is not located where our actual heart organ lies, rather, the heart chakra is in the center of the chest area. Drawing from feeling and expressing love for ourselves and for others in the many different forms of love, (whether romantic, platonic or family love) the heart chakra plays a vital role in learning more about ourselves and what we value.

Air is oxygen of which we breathe, we are therefore connected to all living things, and we are connected to all life. Please note that the heart chakra connects the lower and upper chakras together. In other words, in order to create harmony within our body both on a physical, and spiritual level, the heart connects this on a very deep level to restore aspirations of our inner being.

The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:

  • Love for oneself and for others
  • Experiencing deep and meaningful relationships
  • To have compassion and empathy
  • To be open towards transformation and change

Throat Chakra / Vishuddha

Colour associated with Chakra: Blue 
Element associated with Chakra: Air
5th chakra  in the 7 chakra system – base of the throat

The throat chakra or Vishuddha;  it is known in Sanskrit meaning “pure” or “purification”. It is located at the center of the neck at the level of the throat, it is the passage of the energy between the lower part of the human and the head. The main function this chakra is drive by the principle of expression and communication.

The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:

  • Expression – the ability to speak your truth & to speak out
  • All forms of communications such as: whether it’s verbal or non-verbal, external or internal,
  • Connection to the etheric realms, the more subtle forms of spirit & your own intuitive abilities
  • Propensity to create and even innovate, new ideas or blueprints into reality
  • Realizing your own vocation or life purpose
  • Having a good sense of timing and time management

Third Eye Chakra / Ajna

Colour associated with Chakra: Translucent purple or bluish white 
Element associated with Chakra: Light
6th chakra  in the 7 chakra system – — forehead, just above area between the eyes

The third eye chakra also known as Ajna in Sanskrit which means “perceiving” or “command” can be found between your two physical eyes on your forehead and near the eyebrow,  giving you the power to see with openness and Divine perception of your intuition. This chakra is also known as the ‘supreme element’ as it gives all of us, as we are all have the natural ability to seek our own truth, through our third eye, by using our imagination – and hence by seeing everything in its purest form. Therefore, the third eye, awakes you  of your inner being, and of your Divine truth.

The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:

  • Vision
  • Intuition
  • Perception of subtle dimensions and movements of energy
  • Psychic abilities related to clairvoyance and clairaudience especially
  • Access to mystical states, illumination
  • Connection to wisdom, insight
  • Motivates inspiration and creativity

Briefly in Yogi metaphysics, deeply within our own unique subconscious, the third eye or Ajna chakra carries our personal duality with our own unique “I” consciousness. It carries the duality between us and the divine, since we are all connected to the Divine. Nevertheless, you can separate personally from the “I” consciousness – and therefore be about to transcend to other dimensions, without the use of time or space, using the other five elements or chakras.

In other words, it’s about reaching yet another state of consciousness or super-consciousness, that exists independently from the rest of anything else. Granted, it does take time, patience and understanding.

Crown Chakra / Sahasrara

Colour associated with Chakra: White or Violet
Element associated with Chakra: Mind
7th chakra in the 7 chakra system – Crown of the head

The Crown chakra or Sahasrara in Sanskrit, can be translated to mean “A Thousand Petals”. Know as the spiritual connection between you the Cosmos, this powerful chakra can help you reach a state of wonder, enlightenment, and knowingness. Because it’s symbol looks like a lotus flower, you can see how spiritually, we are all evolving to be the best versions of ourselves for the highest and greatest good.

The Crown chakra opens the doors to the awareness of what we need to know. Again, we all have the ability to reach peaks of transcendence of our limitations whether that be personal, as there are no limitations of space, time or energy. We all have the ability to reach paradoxes and dimensions through a crown chakra which is the norm. As it is a wise and truthful teacher, it is always Universal and transcendent. It provides the most soul seeking lessons found deep in your subconscious.

There is a blessed and sacred union between you and the energy of the chakra. You will find a state of complete awe, bliss and spiritual ecstasy. It provides the essential wisdom of all that is, and all that will be. You will be given the upmost clarity and enlightened wisdom of what your soul needs to know – even if you are ready for it or not!

As we are all an extension of the Divine, therefore you can view the Crown chakra as a the messenger chakra. It connects you to the Universal consciousness that is linked to everything, the infinite life force energy, and to everything in existence.

The key functions or characteristics associated with this chakra are:

  • Consciousness
  • Awareness of higher consciousness, wisdom, of what is sacred
  • Connection with the formless, the limitless
  • Realization, liberation from limiting patterns
  • Communion with higher states of consciousness, with
  • Ecstasy, bliss
  • Presence

This is just a very brief look at the 7 chakras. But I’d encourage you to seek out what you believe the chakras to be. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of what a chakra is, but this is just a very short introduction to what they are.

Much love and blessings,
