Peacock Ore

Peacock ore is all about happiness and joy. It is meant to bring you more positivity and to bring happiness to those around you. One of the best things about this crystal is that is gives you the ability to see and appreciate all the joy that it around you. It also helps you see that all is how it should be. It helps you see that everything is up to how you perceive it. If you are using the right perspective (which this stone encourages) then you’ll see there is nothing wrong in your life. Along with it bringing happiness it also helps ground your nervous energy.

This stone is really great when you combine it with chakra healing. This is because even when you use it on one chakra it positively affects them all. It is actually so good at healing chakras that it is nicknamed the chakra stone. It is most connected with the third eye. If you hold this crystal to your third eye while meditating it can help open up your intuition and awaken your inner sight.

If you are going to be doing any magick with peacock ore you’re going to want to do magick that has to do with bringing happiness and positive emotions in general. It’s great for self love magick and magick to remove stress. This is also a great crystal to have handy if you’re going to be doing any divination.

That is all for today! Do you use peacock ore in your practice? Let me know down below along with any other thoughts or questions you have. Make sure you follow me here and on twitter so you get notifications when I post and upload videos to youtube. Until next time, Blessed Be!

All About Auras

I’m sure many of you have heard of auras as they are something joked about a lot. When you think of something really hippie or metaphysical you probably think of auras. Do you actually know what they are though? They make more sense then you would think. People naturally give off certain vibes. Some people make you feel nervous, some give you joy, some make you mad. This all ties back to a person’s aura. So even if you don’t believe in them you are experiencing them on an emotional level.

Auras are an electromagnetic field that surrounds people, animals, and things. It may sound a bit crazy but even scientists recognize that everything gives off it’s own energy. This is the same. So, now that we know the basics lets get a little more in depth. So an aura has 7 layers. If you’ve read some of my older blog posts about chakras, or have seen this week’s monday video on my youtube channel, you’ll have some background knowledge. So the 7 layers are linked back to our 7 chakras. The first layer is the physical layer which ties back to the root chakra. This layer is connected to your physical health, pain, and pleasure. The next layer is the emotional layer which is connected to the sacral chakra. After that there is the mental layer which is connected to your solar plexus/navel chakra. Your fourth layer is called the astral layer. It is connected to your heart chakra and evidently about love. The astral layer is the layer in between the bottom three and the top three, so it is said to connect the two together. The next layer is called the spiritual layer. It is connected to your throat chakra. It relates back to your spiritual health and connects you to the universe. The sixth layer is called the celestial layer. It is connected to your third eye. It focuses on your intuition. The last layer is called “I Am” layer. It is connected to the crown chakra. This layer is about your potential connection with the divine.

Your aura is never just one colour at a time. It is a collective of colours that can express how one is feeling on all the different layers. The brightness of your aura can also be indicative of how you’re feeling. Something bright is more on the happy, joyful side. Where something dark or dull may have more negative attributes. Also, if you are in a rough time in your life and your aura is not looking the best you don’t have to worry about being stuck with that aura for the rest of your life. As you and the situations you are in change so does your aura. However if you feel like your aura could use a little TLC you can always cleanse it. You can cleanse your aura through meditation or smudging, just to name two methods.

Now, you’re probably wondering “can I look at my own aura?”. The answer to this is, with practice, yes. The easiest way to do this is to lay your hand against a white wall, paper, or any surface really. You want to look at your hand and let your eyes relax. If you’ve ever done a puzzle that has a 3D image you can see by relaxing your eyes, it is the same idea. Another way to think of it is to let your eyes zone out. Eventually you will begin to see a colour along the edges on your fingers. This is your aura. You can also practice by looking at pictures of people in front of a white background. Eventually, with practice, you will be able to see auras without the white backdrop.

So you know what auras are now, you know how to see your’s and other’s auras, but what do the different colours mean? I’ll leave some links for you to find lists of colours and their meanings.

Citrine

Natural citrine does not hold on to negative energies but rather dissipates it. This makes citrine a great protective crystal. It is one of two crystals that doesn’t need to be cleared or cleansed. This stone promotes imagination and creativity.

This crystal is most known for bringing money your way and also maintaining said money. It attracts wealth, prosperity, and all things good. It is also a crystal that encourages you to be of goodwill and makes you more generous with sharing your wealth.

This crystal is also known for helping people in their professions. It helps interactions for those in sales and other similar financial careers. It is fortifying for those in healing careers and stimulates work in government fields. It also boosts creativity for those who are artists.

If you are having interpersonal relationship problems with family, friends, partners, you name it, then this is a great crystal for you. It helps smooth out conflict and promotes solutions.

If you carry this crystal around it will bring love and happiness to you. It will also shield you from those who would otherwise break your heart.

This crystal with its yellow hue is great for balancing the naval/solar plexus chakra as well.

Despite all these amazing traits of citrine it is not recommended for those with a temper because it can amplify that emotion and make one aggressive. It should also be avoided if you are one to slander or gossip.

Thank you for reading! Do you use citrine in your day to day life? What does it do for you? Let me know in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Green Obsidian

Green obsidian is used a lot during reiki to help balance the heart chakra specifically but also the throat chakra too. This stone removes hooks and ties caused from other people. It is great for treating the gallbladder and the heart. Not only is it great for relaxation and stress but it helps ease insomnia, protects you from nightmares, promotes the ability to flow with change, it promotes confidence, and helps you with the idea that everything is alright.

This stone is great for people who want personal counselling but don’t seem to be getting anywhere as it will help them really tackle their problems and help them become more self reliant. It is also great at keeping people away that will only drag you down with their own personal crises. Keep this crystal on you if you work with people (especially troubled ones) to keep your energies light and positive.

Lastly, if you worship Gaia, like myself, and you want to have some sort of tribute to her on your altar or make a little gaia jar this is a great crystal to put in it!

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Cleansing the Solar Plexus Chakra

So today we are doing a reading on our solar plexus chakras. The last 2 weeks we did the root chakra and the sacral chakra. All have been really great readings and I’m just as happy with this one!

15ee9838ff19c39b676a75f5b0abc43b
Spread I used

My favourite part of all three of these chakra spreads is how uplifting the final pulled card is. All of the cards speak and beautiful results that I am so excited to experience.

35123941_1739693066119315_7489652090608812032_n
Cards I pulled

Card to represent of solar plexus chakra: Three of Swords

My solar plexus chakra gets left out in the open, unguarded, unbalanced, ungrounded. This leaves it open to attack. The vulnerability of my solar plexus chakra has left me hurt physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s main damage being mentally.

How I can better use my logic: Eight of wands

I am going to have rapid action and quick decisions coming up. I will need to use my logic and creativity together to achieve the best results.

A way I can be more proactive: Nine of Cups Reversed

I need to think more carefully about what I really want from life. I also need to focus on my relationships with family, friends, and the community. Once I find my inner joy and build these relationships I will naturally become more proactive.

Good way to balance this chakra: Two of Cups

I need to find trust in my relationships with the divine and my partner. For my partner will fill my empty cup and the goddess will walk my path along with me.

Result of balancing this chakra: The Ace of Swords

When I balance this chakra I will have a breakthrough. I’ll find the truth and see the world from a whole new view. This will open up so many possibilities and opportunities for me.

I hope you found this interesting! If you think I missed anything, have any thoughts, or have any questions make sure to leave them in the comments. Also be sure to subscribe to me on my blog and on twitter so you get notifications when I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

All about Reiki

So since I got my holy fire reiki 1 and 2 placements over the weekend, and hope to offer a reiki service on the site soon, I thought it would be good to talk about what reiki is.

How does reiki work?

Reiki is an energy that exists beyond this world. It goes beyond time and distance. When one is attuned to the reiki energy you can channel the reiki energy through your hands (palm chakras) and give that energy to yourself or others.

What is the purpose of reiki?

The purpose of reiki is to heal yourself spiritually, physically, and mentally/emotionally. The reiki energy is used to balance and align your chakras which in itself helps your soul, mind, and body. The energy can also focus on other body parts and organs to help heal those as well.

What does it feel like to receive reiki?

Everyone experiences reiki differently. Some people feel nothing but relaxed. Some can feel the energy unblocking their chakras. When I receive reiki I feel a tingly sensation where the practitioner is working on me. Some people see visions, or hear voices. I know some people who start floating off the table. You can be visited by various parts of the universal energy source. I find people often see the universal energy source in the shape of angels but as someone who doesn’t believe in angels I think they they would present themselves differently to me.

How does long distance reiki work?

The way it was explained to me was that picture our souls being connected to a cord that extends past our world to a place where distance and time does not exist. When you administer reiki long distance the energy travels to the start of the cord where there is no time or distance. It travels through the cord and then heals the soul it was meant to heal in our world. So not only can reiki be done long distance, but it can be done to someone in the past or future.

Do I need to take classes to do Reiki?

Some believe you can learn through books on your own but most believe you have to be taught. There are ignitions and placements you have to complete. There are also secret symbols to learn from a teacher. So while some believe you don’t have to learn from a teacher it is agreed that you must learn some way or another. You can’t just do it randomly.

What else should I know about reiki?

Reiki can not cause harm no matter what. You can do Reiki on someone as long as you have their souls permission. So say you want to do Reiki on your child who can’t speak yet, if you ask their soul and their soul gives you permission then you can do Reiki on them.

Reiki has no religion. It is thought of as a pagan concept these days I think, but what do you think Jesus (the real Jesus, the healer, not the one Christian’s talk of, God’s son) was doing? Some form of reiki, even if reiki wasn’t its name then. He was healing with his hands.

Your intention with reiki is what is most important. Your symbols don’t have to be perfect and your hand placements don’t have to be either. As long as your intentions are clear reiki energy will do what needs to be done to help heal the person you are giving reiki to.

And as always, when you are done doing reiki (like when you are done with a sacred circle or a Ouija board for example) you must close the persons energies and let go of the reiki energy. When you are done doing reiki you align the chakras, you remove any psychic waste in the air, and you thank the reiki energy for helping and release it. You do this to make sure the person who received reiki will stay safe because you never know what negative energies are lurking around waiting to feed on someone’s new energy.

After a Reiki session you should drink lots of water and expect to have a deep sleep and possibly some very vivid dreams.

Tourmaline

Tourmaline regardless of colour promotes inspiration and happiness, reduces fear, and building self-esteem. The various colours of tourmaline have different effects on people.

images (1)Red-Violet, deep pink: This kind of tourmaline is a root chakra healer and offers vitality to the physical body.

Orange: enhances creativity, stimulates the sacral chakra, and balances emotions of sexual nature.

Yellow: Aligns with solar plexus chakra and boosts personal power and spiritual growth.

Pink: promotes love and joy

Green: opens the heart chakra, allows it to see what the third eye visualizes, teaches compromise, must have for a herbalist or anyone who works with plants, and attracts success and abundance.

Blue: activates the third eye and throat chakra, assists retrieval of higher knowledge, and enhances inner knowing.

Violet: protects against dark entities.

Brown: cleanses the aura and auric field. It can be used to as a protective stone  to bring peace and hope.

Black: repels negativity, lifts a dark mood to a light mood, and grounds the root chakra to the earth energies.

Watermelon: It promotes unconditional love, bonds the heart chakra energies with the higher self, enlightens energies which allows room for laughter and lightness, and releases moods of being too serious.

Neon: magnifier energy that can be used  as a complementary tool  to enhance healing properties  of other healing stones, and offers power and focus.

Colourless: it activates the crown chakra; assists communications with the ascended masters, extraterrestrial beings, and the angelic realm; and it also aids higher awareness.

Healing:

Tourmaline is a great stone to use for weight loss and cellulite reduction. It works best when the tourmaline is incorporated into clothing.

It is also great for absorbing, aligning, and cleansing. The crystal is great for absorbing energy. Due to this if it builds up too much negative energy it will need to be cleansed or instead of making a room more positive the absorbed negative energy can have negative effects on a room. The crystal is also great for aligning the chakras as said earlier.

Lastly, the crystal also attracts inspiration. So if you’re trying to get a project done try having tourmaline around. If you have a piece with a colour that corresponds to your situation you will have even better results.

Chakras: The Root and Sacral Chakras

What-Is-Chakra-1

Chakras were the very first “pagan” idea that I ever connected with. Even when I considered myself a Christian, who did not believe in anything metaphysical that wasn’t part of the bible, this was a concept I was continuously drawn to. What got me started with chakras is this test https://www.eclecticenergies.com/chakras/chakratest I used to take it every couple months to see if my chakras were more balanced. I think at the end of the day a test can’t be totally accurate but I think it’s a good starting point to see where you need to improve.

What are the chakras? Firstly, there are 7 of them. They are balls of energy in various locations in your body that affect you physically, emotionally/mentally, and spiritually. There are 3 different states of our chakras: over-active, under-active, and balanced. When you have a chakra that is over-active you’ll often find one under-active to compensate. The goal is to have all 7 chakras balanced equally. To balance the chakras one must start from the bottom and make your way to the top. Like anything in order for success you must start with a good foundation. The 7 chakras are the root, sacral, navel, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras. In this post I will break down the different attributes of the chakras and ways we may balance each one.

The Root Chakra

Root-chakra

Colour: Red

Located: Base of the Spine

Element: Earth

This chakra is about being physically and feeling at home in all situations

When opened: You will feel grounded and secure. You will feel a sense of stability. You know who to trust. You’re thinking in the present and are connected to your physical body.

When under-active: You will feel nervous and fearful. You have a hard time feeling welcomed. You lack that feeling of belonging and security.

When over-active: You may find yourself being greedy and materialistic. You may have a fear of change and obsess over having a sense of security. 

Healing and balancing the root chakra:

  1. Reiki
  2. Crystal healing (stones such as mahogany obsidian, red tigers eyes, hematite, tourmaline, red carnelian, and red jasper)
  3. Essential oils (oils such as ylang-ylang, myrrh, patchouli, vetiver, rosewood, thyme, frankincense, ginger)
  4. Chakra mudra (Gayan mudra is used for activating the root chakra. To preform it you need to touch the tip of your thumb and index finger together)
  5. Chakra sound therapy (the sound “LAM” is the mantra that connects with the first chakra. The frequency of “LAM” matches perfectly to heal the chakra)
  6. Meditation (you can imagine a red ball of light at the base of your spine and then imagine this light extending down your legs and to your feet. You can also practice the mudra and mantra during meditation)
  7. Natural healing methods (gardening, mountain hiking, and other activities that connect you with the earth and nature).

The Sacral Chakra

Sacral-chakra

Colour: Orange

Located: Lower Abdomen/pelvis

Element: Water

This Chakra is about feeling and sexuality. 

When open: You are able to express your emotions freely without being overemotional. You open yourself up to intimacy and passion. You are comfortable with your sexuality and sexuality as a whole.

When under-active: You tend to be more cold and unemotional. You aren’t one to open yourself up to others.

When over-active: You are over-emotional and get attached to others easily. You also may be overtly excessively sexual.

Healing and balancing the sacral chakra:

  1. Reiki
  2. Crystal healing (crystals such as citrine, moonstone, amber, tangerine quartz, sunstone, carnelian, and orange calcite)
  3. Essential oils (oils such as tangerine, neroli, jasmine, rosewood, clary sage, grape, bergamot, and geranium)
  4. Chakra mudra (To activate the sacral mudra put your hands on your lap, palms up, on top of each other with your left hand underneath)
  5. chakra sound therapy (the sound “VAM” is the mantra that connects with the second chakra. The frequency of “VAM” perfectly matches to heal the chakra)
  6. Meditation (imagine a bright orange ball of energy in your pelvis and imagine it making it’s way down the base of your spine and down your legs to your feet. You can also practice the sacral mudra and mantra while meditating)
  7. Natural Healing Methods (spend time by the ocean, lake or river; take walks by the water or sit with it in view; go wading or swimming)

So there is an overview of what chakras are, specifics on the root chakra and the sacral chakra. Next week I’ll continue talking about the navel, heart, and throat chakras.
