Acceptance could be such a kick in the ass sometimes….

Acceptance my friends can be the hardest thing to achieve.

I mean look at it this way, things we can’t control, how easy it that to accept? Horrible things that happen to us and the world around us and we’re just suppose to accept it? Yep, it’s the first step to growing and moving forward with your life.

I’m not gonna lie, acceptance for me is challenging especially when I’m struggling with something specifically. Right now it’s difficult for me to accept the fact that I agreed to move and now live in an area where it snows, temperatures drop below freezing, and sometimes the power goes out. Acclimating to this environment is HARD some moments throughout the day are easier than others just like my experience today. This morning my truck completely stopped running while I was on the freeway. Normally this would have skyrocketed my anxiety but I came to accept the situation immediately and stayed calm. I was astonished by this odd behavior that but I rode with it. I waited for an hour for a tow truck to pick me up after being told it would only be 30 minutes before a truck would come and save me. I didn’t even get irritated when I called for an ETA, AMAZING. CHP (California Highway Patrol) and Caltrans (state agency for transportation) both stopped by to check on how I was doing, what was wrong, and if i needed help. I forgot that my license has expired and I’m waiting for a new one in the mail to arrive…. oops. After I told the officer that I am a counselor and that I was heading down to juvenile hall to meet with the kids there, he forgot about asking me for important stuff like my license, registration, and proof of insurance, but hey I wasn’t there to remind him either.

In that particular moment I was living presently in acceptance and that was definitely a noticeable point of growth.

When we learn to accept and let go of control that’s when we are able to be present in Universal Consciousness.

Acceptance is one in the same with forgiveness, in the same token that we forgive others not for them but for our own healing to take place. Acceptance doesn’t take away from our pain but it does move us into the direction of transformation and healing.

May this be the message you needed to hear.

My Favorite Crystals and Crystal Skull

It’s 1:00am and I feel compelled to write about my favorite crystals so here I am! If you’re up at this early morning hour, it’s meant for you to think about how crystals could add/contribute to the life for your highest good. I will be overviewing six crystals but five stones. Please feel free to comment below on your own favorite crystals and why! Sharing is always caring!

 

Amethyst is the stone for aiding in the development of opening and working with the third eye which is also known as the 6th chakra. It can be held during meditation and if placed on the third eye one is able to feel the energy it transmits. It’s a wonderful stone to use before spirit communication to help receive information clearer. I also love its beautiful tones!

Citrine is a crystal that represents the solar plexus chakra and is generally used for developing personal power, creativity, and intelligent decisions. I selected this stone to aid in helping me with manifesting quicker honestly. When meditating I like to keep this stone in my hand or near me to help me bring in my manifestations. 

Blue Lapis Lazuli is used for enlightenment, seeking truth, and for psychic development. Wearing this stone assists in channeling your angels and Spirit. I find this stone extremely instrumental in my spiritual journey so it is also with me.

Green Aventurine is a protection stone for the fourth chakra or otherwise known as the heart chakra. This stone will protects others from tapping in or taking energy from you. I am highly sensitive so I do use to stone as a form of energetic protection (along with asking my angels and Spirit posse for protection), AND it is a stone for being in prosperity into one’s life. 

Black Tourmaline is used for protection and grounding. When I was suffering from panic attacks due to an incident that I was pre-warned psychically about, I learned about this stone and from then on I’ve been keeping it on my person. Whenever I feel like I need energetic protection I just find this stone in my crystal bag and hold it while deep breathing and visualizing a shield around me and eventually the threat will pass. 

The crystal skull that I have was given to me by my Spiritual Mentor, Sa Eeda, so it’s extra special to me. There are many different sizes of skulls but I have a tiny one, but size doesn’t matter, just its intention. Crystal skulls have been used for many centuries for shamanic practices in healing and awaken higher consciousness. I carry the skull for these such reasons. I’m always aiming to learn more so that I can share more of what I receive to you and others who are reading this article now. 

There is so much more information you can find on these crystals as well as other crystals that are not on my list. I listed spiritual reasons for why I carry these specific crystals but they do have physical healing properties as well in which I highly encourage you to research if that’s what you’re looking for, and then share what you find with me. I don’t claim to know all the mystical answers, but I will always share what I know and continue to find true to my inner core. 

 

Some of my crystal collection

In Passing…

Breaths are a major part of our existence, if you didn’t know

It brings life and energy.

It allows us to transcend and leave, whether temporarily or permanently.

And it’s never easy but necessary and still we grieve…

Numbness, exhaustion, this will never end

So don’t fear it. Accept and move within it for it’s only inevitable.

Inhale, exhale, leave one existence and continue onward within the next

Sooner than later I’ll see you again…

I See the Future in my Dreams

I can see the future once I close my eyes and quiet my mind.

Receiving guidance, learning lessons, leading from….

Dreams are not what they seem when they suddenly develop into reality.

Does it scare me… no,

Can I grow when my mind is awake but my body is nowhere to be found? Consciousness, openness, readiness I’m now ready to own.

Hippie soul who possesses a body, laude-di-da-di, it’s my soul who fights to run free.
