Ruby: I awaken my kundalini energy.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What is Kundalini energy? From what I understand so far…It is a Hindu word that means to awaken your chakras from the base chakra up into the crown chakra! There is a goddess or serpent asleep that can awaken and clear it’s way up all of the chakras to the crown to energize the body for a wonderful feeling! There are other cultures that have a similar word such as the Christian “Pentecostal Fire”.

Kundalini can be achieved through spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation.

May you feel alert and happy TODAY!

Calcite: I am open to creativity.

What a wonderful world where we can be creative at anytime.

So fun and the possibilities seem endless. Even using the internet and posting things is so limitless.

I was really happy when I listened to the Vulnerability by Brene Brown media (Ted Talks and audio via radio shows). She ended one of the series by encouraging people to find their creative love, making candles was her example. Something artsy that makes you feel good. Wow that sure hit home for me and in a way gave me permission to do my arts and crafts in addition to the more serious work I do (audio engineering).

Here’s Calcite pictures I found today. This stone is known to encourage spontaneity and creativity. I think the two things go hand in hand.

Gem Artists Wanted

I would love to share other artists’ work on this blog’s Gem of the Day (message me for consideration).
Case in point: today I met a jewelry artist, Matias Brustle, and a friend bought a Malachite ring from him. It’s interesting because everyday for 3 days I have been pulling the Malachite card from my Deck of Gemstone Cards (Crystal Ally Nahisha Ahsain’s Cards). I asked Matias if he’d like to have his work displayed on my social media, and he said yes.

Malachite: I go with the flow.

Go with the flow. Kind of complicated if you think about the flow being something that might not be the right direction! Also does this mean to just laze around and let things happen?

For me it means to let the day flow with what is happening around me. As I go with my usual exercise/meditation and work schedule, some things may come up that are appropriate to do also. Malachite is considered by some to be the right use of the will (the universe’s will versus the ego). All of those topics are a bit far for me to reach. Thus going with the flow was the way I approached it.

Here’s some neat photos of Malachite for today.

Prehnite: I am healed.

Prehnite is known to heal the healer.

It’s so beautiful especially with epidote mixed in…looks a bit like green tea. This necklace has that kind along with mother of pearl beads. Earrings are prehnite without epidote. Balcony floor tile here in Puerto Vallarta.

Then I’ve thrown in some neat rocks photos from wikipedia to show more beauty!

Citrine: I attract abundance.

What a great life filled with good people and beautiful opportunities to shine. Today I uploaded some Citrine information and read up about it. I found out it’s often amethyst heated to a yellow color or a different quartz heated to make it such a beautiful color. That’s funny that something as wonderful as amethyst would be changed to some other color, but this yellow is incredible too.

Attracting abundance to me is “there is enough for everyone” and “what can I do today to improve myself to continue putting my best foot forward.”

I’m heading out for a walk with friends and I’m wearing these earrings and bracelet today. It has prehnite and amethyst and citrine as the three major stones.

Thank you SUN for the yellow light you give us here on earth. We are abundant.

I am connected to Mother Earth.

I think it’s cool that earth is known as mother earth, and then sky–father sky. The meditation where you think of mother earth bringing a red energy light up through your feet and father sky bringing a blue light through the top of your head and then the two meet in the middle making a beautiful purple, is one of my favorite.

I am connected to mother earth. Keeps me grounded and I am the type of “head in the clouds” person that needs that to remain stable and in my own power. Versus being distracted easily and not accomplishing my goals.

The gemstone Red Jasper is one of those stones for grounding, and it’s a beautiful red!

Jasper is neat in the way it comes in many colors and is known to provide healing and circulation. Unakite is a combination of red jasper and green epidote. I have had so much luck with unakite helping me to feel better. It’s my “go to” stone if I’m feeling sick.

This photo shows a nice cashier who bought a unakite bracelet because she said “her circulation is terrible” and she liked the colors. She kindly and shyly posed for a photo.

Thank you mother earth.

Moonstone: Gem of the Day!

Back to Mexico spent a few months in Idaho. So beautiful there!

New beginnings and life cycles are one of the many aspects of moonstone. I lovingly embrace cycles of life and new beginnings. One of my favorite phrases when raising my children was “You can start your day over again at any time.” That seemed to be helpful for all of us instead of sinking to having a ruined day. I suppose you can do that with life too! New beginnings. Have fun be adventurous. Live in the moment. Adapt and change when life sends you twists and turns.

Thank you Moonstone and all the other gems in my life!

Fancy Shmancy Sayulita

I said to Jim, “Book us a hotel in Sayulita” and he did! It was a Fancy one called “Siete Lunas” in Punta de Sayulita. Had a good view and nature vibe. Now I’m all rested up and ready to stay on the small boat we own again until we leave Mexico (tomorrow). Then a stop to see my youngest son, Craig in Irvine California for 2 days. Here’s a few PANO_20151201_084701photos of Siete Lunas (it was so pretty). I even went to yoga in the jungle and saw some scorpians.
