Summer & Winter Solstices’

Summer & Winter Solstices’

Stonehenge

Facts about the SUMMER SOLISTICE:

• The earth’s axis of rotation is tilted approximately 23.5 degrees. That means that different parts of earth receive different amount of sunlight through the year, resulting in seasons and solstices.
• While the summer solstice is the longest day of the year, it’s not the hottest. Like an oven, it takes time for it to heat up – just like the Northern Hemisphere summer! While the earth may absorb a lot of light that day, it takes weeks to release that heat — meaning the hottest day of the year occurs later in the summer, in July or August.
• Stonehenge was likely used to mark solstices. While much about the Stonehenge, the famed stone monument located in the United Kingdom, remains a mystery, some scientists believe it was used to mark solstices when it was built about 5,000 years ago.
• The Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is December 21st or December 22nd.

Midwinter

Facts about the WINTER SOLSTICE:

• The Winter Solstice is noted for countries living in South of the Equator, or in the Southern Hemisphere.
• The winter solstice is the day with the fewest hours of sunlight in the whole year.
• There is a theory that Stonehenge was built in the Winter Solstice (which in the Northern Hemisphere, North of the Equator) but there is still much mystery about Stonehenge.
• The word solstice comes from Latin sol “sun” and sistere which means to “to stand still.”
• The Winter Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere is December 21st.

Crystal for the Week: AZURITE – EXPANDED AWARENESS

Crystal for the Week: AZURITE – EXPANDED AWARENESS

(Courtesy of The Healing Oracle Crystal Cards by Rachelle Charman 

For the week commencing: Monday, June 18, 2018

Crystal Colour: Vibrant Ranges of Blues
Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: Third Eye or Brow Chakra

What is Expanded Awareness or even Consciousness awareness? This means to be awareness of something far greater than ourselves. We need to release the illusion of all knowing to perhaps there is more curiosity of what we don’t know. Even as lightworkers, realists, scientists, teachers, spiritualists, psychics, healers, mediums and every single human being – we aren’t meant to know everything. This is obvious fact of life.

However, what we can know about life, is seeing things from a higher perspective of light and love. Azurite the crystal of both healing, wisdom and opening our third eye, brings our balance into seeing what needs to be seen, from our personal point of view, as well as the perspective of other people or other external factors involved. There isn’t no right or wrong answers either. It is just known and accepting what information you are been shown, by your intuition. It is important to trust it.

Recently, I have personally expanded my awareness about one big taboo topic: death. Many people are fearful about death and dying, and I just had a though: If you had the choice – would you prefer to a life filled with best quality of life, or the best quantity of life? Of course, this question is very difficult to answer, as no one can determine the extent of one’s life….as this is greatly determined by the Divine – and by the individual’s soul.

I don’t mean to upset anyone by this question, but merely to get you thinking: we need to let go of misconceptions around taboo topics. We need to realize that we can, and we should, question the world in which we live in. How can we make things fair in our communities – local, state, national and global? We don’t need to listen to streams of authority either. We all each have a responsibility to expand our awareness of truth and honesty with all of humanity.

There is more than meets the eye when you see a picture or hear a sound. Granted, everyone may interpret this differently, but it is time for a cause of action, and a cause of change.

For each person, their own expanded awareness will be different and unique, but we all need to be open and accepting with these experiences. When you are open to change, you can create change. Transformation is possible with nonjudgement and acceptance of self and of others.

Expanded Awareness allows all of us, to openly talk about change. Humanity deserves to be curious and mindful of everything and there’s nothing wrong in questioning it.

Trust and have hope.

So, in brief:

• Connects to and enhances your intuition; creating trust to follow your own guidance
• Expands awareness and allows you to see things from a different perspective, allowing transformation and healing to occur
• Dissolves old belief systems, concepts and misconceptions
• Opens you to vision and insight into your life and of others

Card of the Day: PLANT MEDICINE – TRUTH

Card of the Day: PLANT MEDICINE – TRUTH

(Courtesy of the Shamanic Medicine Oracle Cards by Barbara Meiklejohn-Free & Flavia Kate Peters) 

Awaken as I take you deep
My truth reveals you’ve been asleep
You’ll see the world with bright new eyes
Assist those who still live in lies.

What is truth? Truth is both seeking our inner and outer being of ourselves. This also means to authentically live our truth. So, have you been living, speaking and being with and one with your own personal truth? In many Shamanic healing practices worldwide, plant medicine is used to gain and heighten clarity, journey work, and induce visions. Plant medicine has been used for thousands of years. There’s archaeological evidence to suggest that plant medicine, particularly herbs, goes back 60,000 years ago!

However, plant medicine is more than just portions and synthetic pills. These healing and natural remedies were and are still given from the Gods, from Divinity, to discover who you truly are. You are given the choice to accept or reject these remedies and healing properties. Why? Because we are given the choice to seek our own personal journey. And to make our decision to whether we are truly ready to accept our own pathway – whatever pathway that may be, with open arms.

The truth that we are seeking can only been shown to us, is when an individual is ready, and he or she, knows that they are ready. To distinguish between the dream state and the clear state, you are called to decide, a choice, and to live your truth. If you feel brave, courageous and strong – and you do decide to take the plant medicine – know that you can’t go back……for the truth stays with you….to guide you, and awaken you to the Great Spirit, for you then know you will then see our world in a new light. You will be shown to make change. You will be encouraged to seek the bigger picture.

With love and blessings,

Libby xoxo

Card of the Day: STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF

Card of the Day: STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF
(Courtesy of Archangel Gabriel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue)

“Don’t compromise or water down your ideas. Listen to, trust, and follow your inner voice.”

It’s time to believe in yourself and be in your integrity. A perfect time to follow your own inner guidance, no matter what if you’re feel you’re not ready or if you have fears about following your own guidance or you feel someone or something may be holding you back.

In truth, you need to trust whatever Divine guidance you receive. Even if it may seem strange guidance or you’re not sure if or how this guidance will help you, just believe it will.

You’re in a true, sincere and authentic partnership of Divine proportions. Just trust that any creative and original ideas come to you, they are truly Heaven sent!

Don’t worry so much of what other people may be doing with their own Divine Guidance. The main focus should be on YOU. While you can be a great supporter and helper with others, it’s important to also care for yourself.

We each have our own unique path in life and in spirituality. But when we come together for peace and joy, that’s when more Divine things occur!

Trust and stay to true to you!

Namaste xo

Stay true to you

Card of the Day: SERVICE

Card of the Day: SERVICE

(Courtesy of the Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards by James Van Praagh) 

“I feel good when I can help others” 

As we are all searching towards finding a purpose in our lives, and in turn we are also evolving further through our own individual soul DNA or blueprint; we are yearning towards making the world a better place. Therefore a soul yearns for service.

Service involves both giving and receiving – this harmonious balance is an act of both kindness and compassion. Our unique souls are raised through this vibration as a way to not only help other people, other animals or wildlife or our worldly environment but to learn something itself.

Service isn’t about getting something you want, but rather helping someone else who is going through a difficult, struggling or challenging phrase in their life. When we are at service with someone, we are humble, we are more at peace, we are in our integrity and we are focused in helping another soul’s quality of life.

Service doesn’t need to solely focused on material or financial gain, yet it’s best to use your best discernment when it does come to this pathway. Understandably we all need to make a living in the world, but be open and willing to give rather than receive.

However, focus on the heart chakra. This chakra is based on compassion, kindness and love. It’s time to let go our of our ego, our own personal commitments and just for one simple act of kindness and humility, can make all the difference in helping someone else.

Service towards others will influence and inspire others to ‘pay it forward’ in someway, shape or form. No matter how big or small this gesture is, it has a profound impact giver’s soul, and the receiver’s soul.

Remain humble, acts of kindness and compassionate are always rewarded in some way.

With love and blessings,

Libby xo

Card for the Day: GOLDEN MEMORIES

Card for the Day: GOLDEN MEMORIES

(Courtesy of the Universal Love Healing Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno) 

This card is a reflection that someone, a beloved family member, or a dear friend, or even a wonderful furry baby who is now in the Spirit shares a Golden Memory with you today.

A memory is a treasured gift from our past. This card symbolizes the thoughts, emotions, actions, and words that are associated with this treasured memory that you and this person, man, woman or pet or animal share with you. Look back on a golden, happy and joyful memory. Remember all the wonderful things you did together. Because your loved ones, remember this fondly too!

While we can’t change the past, we can learn and appreciate the time that we had with our loved ones. It is perfectly okay to still miss them, to still grieve for them, even if it’s been many years later since their passing.

Life is apart of death, as death is apart of life. It is the Universal balance of everything. Love is Universal, and in all faiths, in all cultures, it is eternal. Our deep connections with our loved ones are as strong as they were when they were with us in this world.

So, please don’t be sad, your loved ones are happy, and want you to be happy. Their gift to you is that life and love is a gift. Treasure this with all your heart, and make the most of it.

You will see them again, someday!

With love and blessings,

Libby xx

Be Influenced or You are the influence!

Quote for thought: Be Influenced You are the influence!

In order to bring more light and love into the world –
You are either influenced by others
Or you influence others to be curious about everything
Either way, our Universe has endless potential of wisdom. It is intention that counts.
