Valentine’s Day Crystal Boxes!

Beautiful Souls,

Valentine’s Day Crystal Boxes! The perfect gift for Valentine’s Day

After all…life is like a box of crystals according to Forrest Gump…well close enough…
1. Go to the dollar store or wherever you can find cute, affordable boxes. Pick out the size you want…I think the small ones with three spaces are really cute.
2. Eat the chocolate…after all, you should never be wasteful and chocolate is good for grounding so that’s a plus…

God Doesn’t Work that Way

Beautiful Souls,

I remember sitting in a mega-church in Plano about 13 years ago and hearing the pastor stand at the podium and tell about 5,000 + people on a Sunday morning that they better not mess up their witness or God would sit them on the bench (he loved to use sports analogies). God would sideline them…take them out of the game.

Encouragement

Beautiful souls,

We all have a purpose. The greeter at Walmart may have chosen to incarnate here just to make everyone’s day a little brighter and diffuse tensions on earth. This star seed may have chosen that as his soul purpose. It is no less or no more important than the one that owns Walmart. It is simply a different contract.

Model Behaviors: Celebrating Discovery & the Redefined Woman

A couple weeks ago, I visited a little shop in Dallas called SoulTopia. I was kind of nervous about this meeting because I wanted to come across as outgoing and confident (neither are natural states for me). But when I walked inside, immediately to my right were two walls with shelves, reaching almost floor to ceiling, filled with Tarot card decks, books about Tarot, books about crystals, and other similar reading materials. As you might recall from my post few months ago, I grew up enamored by Tarot cards, Ouija boards, fairies, and anything magical, so seeing this wall of Tarot encouraged me.

SoulTopia ~ Utopia for Your Beautiful Soul

So this is my first blog and it will be a short one. I have been asked why…why would I do “this.” I actually was asked that by a fellow attorney. And I really wanted to respond… why would you be an attorney that seems to hate what you do…but I refrained because that is the Michelle I don’t want to be anymore. I thought about the question and I said, “because it is who I have always been.”

I am a spiritual being. I am a soul. I am a beautiful soul. But somewhere along my journey, I lost sight of those things. I became religious. I became material. Now before you get up in arms, I am not saying religion is inherently bad. Yet for me it had become something rigid and pro forma…there was nothing spiritual about it anymore… for me. The church I was attending said the name of the church more than the name of the Creator (I actually tallied it in church the last time I attended and it was about 10 to 1). So although church and religion is great for some…I sought a more spiritual experience. One I knew I had experienced as a child when I spoke to angels. Yes, when I spoke to angels and they spoke to me.

I always just “knew” things before other people knew them. I was labeled as being “too sensitive.” Well now I know that is called an empath and I say thank you to such a compliment. But I wanted that childlike faith in my life once more. I wanted to be close to my Creator and to my angels and to my guides as I was when I was young. I called upon them and quickly realized they had never left me.

So I threw out the criticisms and fears that had been place on me and I embraced my authentic self. I am just me. This is who I have always been. I can tell you that I am a kinder, gentler version of me…but I am still just me. A spiritual seeker…a soul…a beautiful soul…like you.

What Are Protection Stones?

Protection stones are rocks or crystals used to keep negative energy at bay, inspiring positive influences. Various stones and crystals have been used for centuries by healers amongst multiple religions and cultures around the world. Whether your aim is to feel good mentally or physically, there is a protection stone with the specific qualities to assist in doing so.

The Many Types and Uses of Protection Stones

We are living in an exceedingly divisive time of modern history where the “us” versus “them” theory is prevalent. Society’s framework creates a lot of friction amongst the public and often results in negative energy. In addition, there are many other causes of negative energy.

The passing of loved ones, the end of long-term relationships, missed opportunities for advancement at work; whatever the reason, negative influences take a toll on our overall well-being. Thankfully, one way to ward them off and attract positive vibes is through the use of protection stones.

Below are a few of the more common protection stones with information on how and why they are used.

  • Amethyst – Amethyst emanates a soothing and protective energy. It is also well known for its healing qualities and is often recommended for caregivers, nurses, doctors, and anyone else working in the healthcare industry. Amethyst is also suggested to be used by anyone suffering from phobias, headaches, addictions, asthma, panic attacks, or PMS.
  •  Black Kyanite – If you struggle with letting go, especially of bad relationships and people who drain your energy, this is the stone for you. Visualize your ties to the person while holding the crystal and then use the crystal to cut that imaginary tie. This should help to free you from their hold and return your peace of mind. Because of its primary use, Black Kyanite is often called the Nonattachment Stone.
  • Black Tourmaline – When it comes to all-round protection, Black Tourmaline has your back. It is often recommended as a daily protection stone used for repelling negative energy. The stone creates a protective cloak around you that blocks the negative thoughts and feelings you could have otherwise absorbed.
  • Citrine – Also known as Gold Topaz and “the success stone,” citrine harnesses the power of the golden sunlight to bring warmth and happiness into your personal life, including relationships with others. Citrine encourages free thought and inspires those who use it to push for the realization of their dreams ― hence the reason for its nickname. Some healers also use this stone to treat thyroid imbalances and diseases of the bladder.
  • Tourmalated Quartz – Tourmalated Quartz is a constant reminder that we all house pillars of strength in the very core of our being. These pillars help to hold us up in some of our weakest moments and help provide us with that same strength and support to others who may need it. Because of its ability to inspire internal strength, it is considered a very powerful protection stone.

How to Use Protection Stones

Though most protection stones and healing crystals may be used through the incorporation of one’s wardrobe or décor, some require a more intricate process for the best results. These processes may require meditation, visualization, and other special techniques, making it so important to be in regular contact with a healer or guide.
