Hello beautiful people!
On our most recent episode I talked a lot about crystals. My lack of knowledge on them, my opinion on them, how I have a kinship with a select few of them, and how I truly believe one helped protect me from physical harm. After all this crystal talk I figured I'd do an experiment. What I wanted to test was if I could essentially scroll through a list of crystals, properties unknown, and using my abilities find ones that connected with me. I wasn't surprised that worked, but I was surprised at how well it did.
Below are a list of crystals that I feel a strong connection with. I never imagined there would be so many, or in hindsight to how many crystals and minerals there are in the world, how few. There are hundreds of crystals, even including different colors and how they may affect the crystal's properties, and yet I only felt connected to fifthteen.
I've listed some of the properties of each crystal and mineral below. In all honesty a lot of them are similar, enhances psychic ability, higher vibration, a few even assist with communication and being able to find balance in that and in your personal truth or destiny. Yet I realized that each property is something I'm greatly invested in learning and strengthening in my life.
Okay, being able to distinctly hear my spirit guides again feels great. There were ones I could get impressions off of and small conversations but there were a few others that were missing.
However, sometimes they are so frustrating! I love them I do but, sometimes I want to do something so bad, or I'm so tired and they constantly remind me oh, not right now or oh, you're missing something to make this perfect. I mean the feeling I get once it's completely done and we all fully approve is insane and worth it, but in the meantime it makes me want to hit something.
I have been working on this document for almost four hours and I'm missing one phrase, one. I have tried to change it in every possible way but they keep screaming at me it's not right and I agree, fine, it's not, but unfortunately, my brain isn't capable of coming up with the correct way to phrase it, so you know what? To the side it goes guys. To the freaking side!
I know I've talked a lot about opening up myself on this podcast. There are several reasons why I needed to do this in order to feel healthy and just, in tune with this other part of me that I was shutting off. It's been, in short, amazing. There have been scary moments sure, but I never felt scared. Instead it's mostly been like picking back up where I left off. All the knowledge I had before has just grown and multiplied in this way that makes me feel closer to being whole. Soon I'll sit down and record an episode on what has happened to me thus far since opening myself back up and what exactly that means for me, but I did want to share something with you all right now.
I had started using my tarot cards again. I'll be honest, I've grown out of that deck. When I used to use them years ago, I realized I needed a new deck. My spiritual essence had grown beyond this one and while the cards were still helpful, I had just changed and needed a deck which could be stronger with me. Now though, it's like the energy of my cards have changed drastically. It's to a point that the energy feels matured, like I feel matured. I feel my cards calling to me, asking me to make the time to use them, and when I do the readings I get literally feel like they hit me with energy.
I'm not sure if that's normal. I felt connected to them before but this feels different. It feels monumental. I'm not sure if the adjustment reflects my own spiritual adjustments and alignments or what, but the reading I did on Saturday really blew me away.
I asked if I was on my spiritual path. Perhaps that's why things were different, but there were a few things it said that have really affected me. A big one, essentially, was to go back to the innocence and joy of when I was younger. You all don't know much about my childhood, but there were rarely any moments of this, but the few that were there have been up front and center ever since that reading.
It's like I've begun to adjust. I've been more experimental with foods, something I haven't done in years, something that brings me joy and light. I've been utilizing my gifts in this different way, being guided to things in a different way. One of the most incredible things is I've been happier all week.
I'm a happy person most of the time but my job, my parents, they make that very very hard. Being an empath on top of it doesn't help, or at least I used to think that but I can't even agree to that statement now anymore. It's like, somehow I let go all of those things. Somehow I reconnected with myself recently, through this tarot card reading, and it's impacted my life in so many ways in such a short amount of time.
One of the other things that have been coming to my mind a lot is looking into the supernatural again. Looking into ways to learn about my abilities. I feel like I know them, extremely well, but you can always learn more. So, I'm going to start researching free classes, blogs, etc. that help you learn about your abilities and if I find them to be helpful and of pure intent I'll share them here in case someone else needs them.
I wish you all a beautiful, thankful, and glorious day!
One of the groups I recently joined was an empath group. In it they have a list of articles and posts which are for empaths; to help you understand your gifts, etc.. But they mentioned a line which I have, but had never knew a name for, The Solar Plexus Chakra.
Now I don't know much about chakras at all. I've seen them personally once before. I've tried those meditative apps for chakras on my phone, but they rarely feel right for me. However, I've always known I've had something behind my navel, which is where this chakra is said to reside.
For me, I've always seen this, thing there. It's like a voided circle. However it has no limit. It's vast and expansive, and when I look into it I feel as though I'm in a meditative state viewing a different plane. When I'm happy, positive, and joyful this place is filled with the purest whitest light. It's so comforting and peaceful. However, when I'm negative, sad, down, worried, stress, etc. black spots appear. They will coexist unless I'm trying to overcome the darkness and need help. At that point it looks as if the light is warring against the darkness. Sort of like those CGI views where the immune system attacks a virus in the body. The light surrounds the dark particles and it doesn't remove them, it fills them with light until they become light.
After this war I will feel a little tired, but better. I'll be able to take negative things that happen within the day easier. It's as if I am water and they are oil, they roll right off of me. I've described this to someone once who appeared to know about this "other" chakra, and that some people have it, but they did not know the name of it. They also didn't know anything about being able to see a light or darkness in it, etc.
Apparently the solar plexus is the seat of emotions. Empaths who take on other's emotions make this place burdened, and once they cleanse themselves/this place of those burdens the chakra will be clear and well aligned. Apparently this is also why people who worry a lot, empaths especially are more prone to stomach issues (something I didn't realize was a common thought among empaths, but I also have, especially if worried or stressed). This includes, ulcers, IBS, diarrhea, etc.
Whether you believe in chakras or not it is an interesting thought. There are different cultures and religions, and even in science we now recognize that stress creates chemical imbalances which affect certain organs first, one of those being the stomach. So who knows what's behind it or what causes it?
I think one of the most important things is to realize how much our emotions affect us and in what ways. We should do things that create joy and positivity in us and remove things that inspire negativity. Life's too short. But if you do believe in chakras or know anything about them, leave a comment! I'd love to know your experience with them or what you've been taught/believe.
