Souls love. That is what souls do. Egos don’t, but souls do.

Be Here Now, Ram DassSouls love. That’s what souls do. Egos don’t, but souls do. Become a soul, look around, and you’ll be amazed-all the beings around you are souls. Be one, see one. When many people have this heart connection, then we will know that we are all one, we human beings all over the planet. We will be one. One love. And don’t leave out the animals, and trees, and clouds, and galaxies – it’s all one. It’s one energy. It comes through in individual ways, but it’s one energy. You can call it energy, or you can call it love. I like to look at a tree and see that it’s love. Don’t you?

~ Ram Dass


Manifesting with the New Moon in Aries

The New Moon is tonight, Saturday or tomorrow, Sunday depending on where you live in the world.

Energetically the New Moon is a time of manifestation, to state your goals and set your intentions as the moon waxes up to the Full Moon in two weeks time. At the Full Moon, we then go through the process of letting go and releasing all that no longer serves us.

As we go through this cycle each month; declaring our intentions, then releasing and clearing; when we consciously do this work with intention, it brings us more into vibrational alignment with who we authentically are at a Soul level.

Manifest your goals by connecting your Centre of Creativity with your Heart Space

Chakra ChartTake a few moments to focus on your breath; breathe in and out through your Heart Chakra (Anahata). Imagine a green light radiating out from your Heart Chakra; and your Heart Space filling with this beautiful green light. Then consciously connect your Heart Chakra to your Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana), which is your seat of creativity and manifestation. Visualise orange light flowing in and out of your Sacral Chakra. Put one hand on each Chakra and feel the energy flow between them with each breath.

As you breathe in and out, take a moment to pause in the stillness of the space in between your breaths. You will find much learning and healing here in the silence between breaths.

When you feel centred and calm, from your Heart Space declare your intentions, state your goals, affirm what you want to attract into your life. Don’t just say the words, feel the vibration of what you are declaring resonate from deep within you.

This New Moon process can be potently powered up with SELF-LOVE.

Once we have sent forth our declarations to the Universe, practicing self-love every day helps to keep our vibration high and in tune with what we want to attract into our lives. It can be as simple as taking a walk along the beach, dancing or singing to our favourite music, treating yourself to a bath infused with essential oils and crystals, taking time out with a cuppa to read a good book… whatever makes you feel nurtured, pampered and supported.

Finish up this process by Grounding yourself.

Black Tourmaline, Hematite, Smoky Quartz, Black OnyxThere are a number of ways to ground yourself and clear your energy. Here are a few of my favourites:

  • Put your bare feet on the earth. Visualise a beam of white light coming from the Universe down through your Crown Chakra, along your spine through each of your Chakras, then out of your Base Chakra, down through your legs and your feet, going right down into the earth. Spend a few moments breathing the energy from the earth, up through your feet to your Base Chakra, then back down into the earth again. When you are ready, visualise roots growing from your feet into the earth, all the way to the core of the earth, growing thicker and stronger with each breath.
  •  Use two pieces of black tourmaline, hematite, smoky quartz or black onyx. Put one in your receiving hand and one between your feet. Focus on your breath for a few moments until you feel calm and centred.
    Sage Smudge Spray
  •  Take a bottle of energy clearing Sage Smudge Spray. Stand with your weight evenly on both feet, consciously feel your feet on the ground, then hold the bottle of Sage Smudge Spray high above your head and give it a couple of sprays… letting the droplets float down through your energetic body and onto your physical body… and breathe deeply the scent of the spray… it has an instant calming and grounding effect… and things seem so much better in the world again…

Full Moon Cleanse for your Crystals

Full MoonThe Energy of the Full Moon

While the Sun represents the Masculine energy; the Moon is Feminine, the nurturing and emotional side of us, it is the Goddess energy, that of the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone.

I love the Full Moon… I stand and stare at her up in the night sky, and a feeling of Love and Expansion always washes over me. She brings me back to a softer way of being, of being Open to Allowing and Receiving (instead of the masculine “pushing to get things done” type energy). And I feel like I want to take a deep breath and sigh, to release, to let go… which is what the energy of the Full Moon is about.

The Full Moon is the time to state that which we wish to release from our life as the Moon wanes down to the New Moon. It is a time for letting go, cleansing, releasing, making space and shedding old patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us.

Then the New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle of energy as the Moon waxes up until the Full Moon. It is a creative cycle to plant the seeds of intention to manifest into our life what we desire, to make a fresh start, a time of optimism, faith and hope.

And then the cycle begins again…

Why put your crystals in the Full Moon light?

There are many different schools of thought on cleansing and re-tuning your crystals, and IMHO, none of them are completely right OR wrong. There is merit in all of them. It is about your intention and your particular circumstances, so go with what FEELS right for YOU.

My understanding is that all crystals have a repeating geometric pattern within their atoms (which is what makes them a crystal and not a stone or metal) and therefore their Dominant Oscillary Rate (DOR), or rate at which they vibrate is quite precise and doesn’t vary too much. However if you have been doing a lot of work with a crystal or maybe you dropped it or something, then it can become a little “out of tune” in a similar way to a guitar string when you have been playing the guitar a lot.

Left to their own devices, over time, a crystal will always return to its natural DOR. However, we can give them a helping hand. Just like you would take Vitamin C when you get a head cold, putting your crystals out in the moonlight gives them some nurturing TLC to help them back to their perfect natural state.

There are many other ways we can do this for crystals, but I’ll put that in another blog post sometime.

What do I do with my Crystals at the Full Moon?

I wait until the sun has passed over, as coloured crystals such as amethyst can fade in direct sunlight.

If the crystals are small I put them on a tray or in a bowl made from wood, ceramic or glass (not plastic) or on a larger stone outside so I don’t lose them in the grass. The larger ones I put directly on the grass. Remember, crystals came from the earth and I feel that they benefit greatly from being in contact with the earth from time to time. It is the same type of thing as Earthing or Grounding for us.

What if it is raining?

The energy of the moon will still be potent even if there are clouds. The moon is shining behind the clouds and the energy is still affecting us.

Do be careful if there is rain forecast or you are likely to get a heavy dew.

Malachite Chrysocolla

Crystals with a Moh’s hardness of 5 or less are not always safe in water and can be damaged, fall apart or dissolve. Some examples are calcite, selenite, malachite, desert rose or halite.

Metals such as pyrite, hematite or magnetite/lodestone will rust if they become wet.

Put the less water tolerant crystals on a window ledge inside your house, and you can put your crystal jewellery there too. The moon energy won’t be quite as strong, but it will still work.

When do I bring them back inside?

I like to have my crystals back inside quite early before the sun becomes too strong. A little sun-bake in the early morning can be good for them, however please remember that they grew underground and too much sun can be damaging for them.

How often do I need to put them out under the moon?

Again, I follow my intuition on this one.

Sacred Space

Sacred Space

The crystals that I use regularly in my Crystal Healing Sessions get put out each month, however others that may be in my Sacred Space or displayed around my home don’t need to go out each month. Once or twice a year is generally all they need. Just tune into them and see how you feel.

Kinesiology with Your Body Has The Answer

Your Body Has The AnswerLast year I had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth Hughes, co-founder of Progressive Kinesiology, at a local library workshop.  The simple muscle-testing example that she performed on a participant at the workshop was a “light-bulb” moment for me.  Your body CANNOT tell lies – it will ALWAYS tell you what you need to know; you just need to know how to tune in and ask the questions.

I bought her fabulous book, Your Body Has The Answer, that day and use it regularly for all manner of things.
