As we approach a very powerful week particularly for two world faiths: Judaism and Christianity, we are reminder to expanded our awareness of the world, and let go of the illusion that we may be holding onto old habits, old thinking patterns and indeed old perspectives of ourselves and others.
This powerful crystal helps you to see things from a higher perspective. What is it that you are truly asking to see? You need to be ready to see and hear the truth, if you are prepared to hear it and see it. Once again, I will be going on the continued theme this week of releasing and letting go of issues, people and situations, that no longer have a purpose or serve any meaning for you.
With the Blue Moon and Full Moon in Libra- which is a very rare phenomenon that has not occurred since 1999. The major focus for this Blue Moon is the focus on love, relationships, friendships, releasing old patterns of thought as well as seeing everything from a higher perspective.
While the colour, ‘Blue” has traditionally, been seen and associated as a colour of sadness, loneliness, and “feeling blue” you may be feeling every sense that you will experience this since Libra’s ruling planet is Venus, dealing with the emotionally-charged feminine aspect of self. However, Libra is also a star sign of balance, harmony, judgement and perspectives. How often do you seek a nurturing and caring side of ourselves? This is also a very strong side to the beautiful Venus, and hence it is a very strong influence on Libra.
Blue on a spiritual side of colour is also strongly associated with communication. You will noticed with this beautiful and powerful card it is associated with the third eye, as well as with the throat chakra. The third eye is located between one’s physical two eyes. This crystal can safely help you stay grounded as you gradually open up your third eye. The third eye helps you seek a higher perspective of yourself, but also other people.
So why is this week so special and important? What is it necessary to expand our awareness? Firstly, due to the lunar calendar, both Passover and Easter both coalign with each other this year in 2018. This only occurs every few years due to the lunar calendar cycle, since both religions follow different calendars.
Peseach or Passover commemorates the Israelites leaving Ancient Egypt after many years of bondage and persecutions.. One of the most beautiful rituals observed by many Jews both observant and cultural is the Passover Sedar which is a constant reminder to them about the Israelites escaping Egypt led by Moses. Connected to this ritual, years later is the Jesus of Nazareth, who himself was Jewish, who according to Christians around the world, is the Messiah of all humanity. Jesus had his Last Supper with his disciples which was a Passover Sedar.
That was just very briefly an example of how two very different faiths share a very beautiful similarity. I have shown this example as a way to help you all see that this week is indeed special and holy for many people around the world. WE are all called to see everything from a higher perspective – to try and understand that there’s always something that we can learn from each other, that perhaps we don’t know….and perhaps we can therefore learn from each other.
See, both the messages of Passover and Easter are freedom, liberation and new beginnings, which essentially is what all the world needs right now at this very moment. The world needs peace and love.
So in brief:
- Connects and enhances your intuition – creating trust to follow your own guidance
- Expands awareness, and allows you to see things from a different perspective, allowing personal transformation and healing to occur.
- Dissolves old beliefs systems, concepts and misconceptions
- Opens you to vision and insight into your life and others.
