Crystal Mojo: Citrine and Kyanite

Crystal Mojo: Citrine and KyaniteI’m often mixing and matching crystals. I don’t sit down and read a book about it, I just notice which ones feel right together. Often I will have two or three crystals in my pocket, and this is a common pairing – citrine and kyanite.

I love the brightness and the way yellow-orange citrine raises my vibration as it cleanses and regenerates my energy, dissipating and transmuting any negative energy I might have encountered. I love this stone for its aura protecting qualities.

Then, kyanite, this beautiful blue stone, stimulates my intuition and connects me to high vibration energy, helping me hold higher vibration state longer. It also connects me to my guides, which I need if I want to speak my truth which kyanite supports, helping to clear blocks and fears to expressing truth.

The Beauty of the Cycle of Life

I lovThe Beauty of the Cycle of Lifee taking pictures of dead flowers. The dried-out remains of a flower that was full of life, but is now left in that state of deterioration.

The life-death cycle is a part of our lives every day. There are new experiences and old experiences that we are letting go of, and experiences that we are still choosing to participate in. The cycle of life and the emotions associated with it help us to have a healthy relationship with our environment.

When we become more comfortable with the cycle of life, it gives us more freedom to be co-creators of a life that we truly want to live. Letting go can be painful, but often there is great beauty to be found within the experience. Exquisite grief, I call it!

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket ChallengeThis is what I have been talking about on my personal Facebook page. If you resonate with this, friend me. I think the more people on the mission to promote heart-centeredness, kindness and consideration, the better.

From my personal page:

“Yesterday I posted about ALS and the fact that my dad died of ALS when I was 13 y/o. I also mentioned that I was pretty disappointed with the negativity targeted at the ‪#‎ALSicebucketchallenge‬ ‪#‎icebucketchallenge‬ aimed at raising money for a cure for ALS. Just to be clear, I LOVE sarcasm – I’m Australian – but there is a muddy line between what is funny and what is plain thoughtless. In this situation I truly don’t think it’s funny. In my opinion it reinforces the feeling of shame I grew up with and essentially feels like being told to “shut up” and not talk about the uncomfortable stuff.

When I was a child watching my dad’s body deteriorating at a rapid rate, going from an active guy, great tennis player!!, great dad who was always wanting to take us out and about, to a 35 year old using a walking stick, and soon after a guy in his late 30’s who was wheelchair bound, and housebound. What I also began to notice was that there were friends that we used to see that we just didn’t see any more.

My dad was ashamed about his condition. I felt ashamed at times; I was a confused 9/ 10 / 11 year old, embarrassed to talk about my dad and why he was in a wheelchair. Some of our friends found it difficult to know how to deal with seeing him deteriorate from this active thirty-something to a guy in a wheelchair attached to oxygen tanks who was finding it more and more difficult to talk and be understood.

The disappearance of these family friends felt like shunning. We all felt the ever-present weight of shame. Like Anthony Carbajal talks about in his viral You Tube video about the ice bucket challenge – which was awesome by the way. He rocked those pink shorts!!! – he says, talking about ALS is kind of a downer. I sooo relate. Maybe that is why we just didn’t hear from some friends anymore.

When people are complaining about the #icebucketchallenge it reminds me of this feeling of shame and shunning. I don’t think that the ALS community deserves that. Like Anthony Carbajal has said, this is the first time that the ALS community has been truly seen!! Do you really want him and other members of the ALS community to go away so that you don’t have to feel uncomfortable?

PS> As a family when my dad was ill and after he died we were very, very fortunate to have a LOT of amazing friends who did support us. In this post I just wanted to point out that shunning and shame is such a huge issue with ALS sufferers, family and friends. We can all do with working on being more thoughtful, mindful and heart-centered, IMO!”

Share in the comments here, and on FB. SERIOUSLY, there is way too much negativity and insensitivity being targeted at this cause. It is okay for the heart-centered folks to get feisty and defend the need for more kindness, love and consideration in our culture!!!

The Victim Story

The Victim Story“The stories you tell over & over, shape you & your world in profound ways.
If you’re living a story that brings you pain, pay attention to your words—be aware of the ways in which you tell & re-tell this story.

Then, stop telling it. Craft a different story.

If you feel victimized, choose a story about your creative power. If you feel abandoned or lonely, choose a story of love & belonging. If you are resentful, choose a story of release & liberation.

Take back your power to shape the stories that shape you.” – Hiro Boga

Inner stories are one of the strongest influences on how we feel on a daily basis and one of the things that only discipline can really transform. That and noticing the feeling in the body when we do shift our stories to a higher vibration story!
