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

Azurite

Native Wisdom for today: DIVINE LAWS

Native Wisdom for today: DIVINE LAWS

(Courtesy of the Native Wisdom for White Minds: Daily Reflections Inspired by the Native Peoples of the World by Anne Wilson Schaef)

Wisdom for the day of: Monday, June 18, 2018

“The rise of the mana (the power of) Maori is a positive and liberating experience which is part of the International struggle by indigenous populations such as the Maoris, for self-determination, cultural survival and escape from domination.”
– Sydney Moko Mead,
Maori Writer

When we view the planet from the perspective of spiritual laws that rule the Universe, it seems unbelievable that our indigenous populations have to struggle to survive. Yet, this is the world that we have created.

What a small step to it is to see that, just as the planet needs all the many varieties of flora and fauna, we need the voices and wisdom of these Native people.

Only when we see that we need variety for survival that will we will truly begin to live by spiritual laws.

If the Creator created these differences, then they, like we, are governed by spiritual laws.

Card of the Day: TEN OF PENTACLES (Reversed)

Card of the Day: TEN OF PENTACLES (Reversed)

(Courtesy of the Rider-Waite Tarot Cards by A.E Waite & Pamela Coleman Smith)

While this card does suggest loneliness, loss and financial failure – to me this card is a reminder to take a step back and think about yourself for a change. We all need to consider self-care and self-kindness for ourselves first and foremost. Many of us, are parents, guardians or carers of children, parents, nieces, nephews, partners/spouses, pets and other family or friends, and we are always caring for someone else’s needs. For today, even just for a short time, this card is a symbol to care for yourself.

There is an enormous amount of pressure to be adults and to have many responsibilities to function and care for others – bills to pay, financial stability, emotional and mental support, health and well-being of others, we seem to forget in our society, that we are children too, just learning the ropes of how to survive.

Living day-to-today life isn’t easy and granted that one’s life daily living is indeed very different to another’s person’s daily living. We shouldn’t judge another’s circumstances of living. Because who knows…. we could very easy, be in that person’s shoes.

So only come from love, come from peace and remain in a place of understanding of another soul.

Crystal for the Week: PERTRIFIED WOOD – ANCESTORS

Crystal for the Week: PERTRIFIED WOOD – ANCESTORS

(Courtesy of The Healing Oracle Crystal Cards by Rachelle Charman)

For the week commencing: Monday, June 11, 2018

Crystal Colour: Crystalized wood
Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: Base chakra

We all have ancestors, those of whom have walked before us, those of whom have learnt valuable lessons in life, and those of whom have since passed on into the afterlife; the spiritual world; to Heaven.

While they are not physically here with us, their spiritual presence is still very much alive and in existence here. For what they only knew when they were living, to what they know now – in the spiritual world, they would love to pass on their guidance, wisdom and love to their forbearer in the living.

Petrified wood is formed when a tree crystalized over thousands of years. This beautiful crystal assists humanity in connecting with ancient tree spirits. This crystal can help you connect deeply through ancient medicine to your ancestors, over many generations, and through many cultures of your ancestors.

Ancestral karma will not only help you learn from your ancestors’ mistakes, and they too, will offer you knowledge about your own pathway, including loving you if you do make mistakes.

To come from a place of understanding and love has been essential since the beginning of existence of humanity. We all have something to learn from our ancestry past, present and future.

The circle never ends….it only continues….

So in brief:

• Strong grounding stone and centering crystal
• Assists in connecting you to the tree spirits to receive deep wisdom and healing from your ancestors
• Awakens the deep knowledge that lies within the blood and bones of your ancestry
• Assists in realizing and releasing any old ancestral karma brought down from the bloodline

Peace and love to you all xoxo

Crystal for the Week: FLUORITE – LEARNING

Crystal for the Week: FLUORITE – LEARNING

(Courtesy of The Healing Oracle Crystal Cards by Rachelle Charman)

For the week commencing: Monday, May 28, 2018

Crystal Colors: Range of purple, yellows and greens
Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: All Chakras

Fluorite is one of the most powerful and effective crystals to help enhance our awakening towards further higher knowledge, wisdom, and learning abilities. This crystal also helps to stimulate our brain to help retain and to restore information that has been previously learnt. Fluorite is a must have crystal for students who are studying, and for those who are life-long learners.

Fluorite also helps anyone who wish to retain their memory or even allow memories from their past to come back either by their consciousness or subconsciousness.

Now is a very powerful time for you to consider learning something new. This could be a subject purely of your personal or professional choice. However, consider asking your spiritual team to guide you towards learning something about yourself, or even something that you haven’t consider – something that hasn’t been brought to your attention. This could be a person, place, or issue that needs to be strongly addressed.

Learning isn’t always necessarily about seeing who is or what is right or wrong, yay or nay, but rather to keep all options and perspectives open. To see a higher perspective in everything, we need to be curious about the world, or even the Universe.

As this beautiful crystal affects all chakras, so too we are constantly learning about the world around ourselves. We aren’t meant to stop learning, nor are we meant to know everything. Everything around us, needs to be at a healthy and harmonious balance.

When you need to know something, you need to ask yourself. Do I need to learn about it first? The answer will make itself known to you through your beloved spiritual team.

So in brief:

• Allows you to be open to new knowledge and stimulates learning
• Stimulates the mental body and enhances memory and decision-making
• Supports you to gain a clearer perspective when experiencing emotional confusion
• Balances the mind and mental body

With love and Crystal blessings,

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
