Where the hell is summer? Or, perhaps more pressing, where is the time flying? Seems like it was only yesterday that my friend and I were talking about walking Hadrians Wall, and now in less than 3 months we'll be on our trek. Ooh er!
Today's Monday Musings uses the Crystal Ally Cards, by Naisha Ahsian. One reason I like this deck is because if a particular stone card speaks to you, it's quite possible you could get that stone and carry it with you as a reminder of the message or the lesson. It's also good chance to plug a very special offer for a crystal reading, which is only going to be available this time around until the 30th of June.
What will this week bring to you? Monthly forecast? Weekly forecast? Daily forecast? It's up to you, you know the drill! Pick the one that calls to you, then read the reveal in the comments for a mini-reading for the week ahead, or read them all as a story-telling spread. Your reading, Your call. I'm just the messenger.. I'm still offering private readings, too, so if you want to know a little more about what the universe has in store for you, hit me up. "I'm here to help."
Left: Prayer, Fulgurite.
I'm not surprised this one appeared with the storms that we've been having! I've got to admit that fulgurite is one of my favorite things on the planet. It's a glass tube that is formed when lightning hits sand. How cool is that? If this is your card for this week, it's calling you to weather the storm. Don't fight the forces of nature. Let the things that are happening in your life mold you and change you. Use your energy to rise with the storm. Remember that your words are carried on your breath and your breath gives you life, so speak your ideas into being and then follow them up by taking action to make them manifest. A prayer without action is just a wish. Now is not the time to wimp out. There are some things you can only learn in a storm. Let it clear the air and empower you.
Middle: Sugilite, Dreams
Before you were even born, your heart's desires were placed deep in your psyche to lead you to your highest happiness, you greatest success, and your deepest fulfillment. The discord you experience in your life happens when you are out of harmony with those desires. If you chose this card for the week then it is asking you to slow down to the speed of life and get back in touch with those dreams. You may not be able to walk away from everything that brings you down just yet, but you can take steps right here, right now, to take you closer to what you want to be doing, so you don't feel quite so stuck in what you have to do. Start doing what you love, little and often, and let the universe know that you're listening. You will not be disappointed, but—as I said above—you have to harness those desire and be prepared to act on them, or they'll be destined to stay a wish, tantalizingly just out of reach.
Right: Spirit, Danburite
In a crystal reading, danburite signifies joy and celebration. If this is your card for the upcoming week then it is asking you to find reasons to be cheerful, part one, two, and three. It's a message that there is always something to be thankful for, always a kernel of light in every situation, even if you have to wade through the mud to see it. It's asking you to look for what cannot be seen, which may sound like an oxymoron, but it is there and you will find it. Start to see yourself as the co-creator of your own reality, rather than a victim of your circumstances. Try keeping a gratitude journal, and practicing random acts of kindness. When you make a conscious effort to look on the bright side, you start to train the neuroreceptors in your brain to seek out information to support that decision. Start right here, right now, and find three things to be thankful for. Danburite reminds you that, when you change your thoughts, you really can change your life.
