Quartz Crystal

Quartz crystal is what people think of when they hear the term “crystal. It is the most popular crystal with good reason. Quartz crystal is easily affordable because it’s quite common.  If you could only have 1 crystal, I would recommend you choose quartz for the fact that it is good for just about any spiritual use.  Quartz is believed to offer the following benefits to the bearer: good luck, energy, healing, protection, purification, clarity, guidance, wisdom, amplifies, stores, transfers and transforms energy.

Quartz can be used to amplify thoughts and body energy. Quartz also brings forth clarity to one’s thoughts and allow one to influence the situation more effectively.

Quartz crystal is considered a stone of power. It brings forth energy and harmonizes the flow. Quartz bridges a connection between the physical dimensions and that of the mind.  It is believed to open communication with minerals, plants, animals and intelligent energies outside the physical realm. Quartz is believed to harmonize the flow of life energy between all life forms.

Quartz crystal is a very powerful stone for  facilitate communicate with spiritual and other worldly masters, teachers and healers.

Quartz can create altered states of consciousness and can serve as a vehicle for reaching and utilizing abilities and talents of the mind. Psychic abilities are strongly stimulated and enhanced with quartz crystal.

Chakra Healing

Quartz crystal is  used in chakra healing to activate and energize the 7 major energy centers in the body. Quartz attunes nicely with the heart chakra as well as the 3rd eye chakra.  Mediation can be improved by placing a quartz crystal on the 3rd eye. It helps one clear their mind and reach a “quiet place”.  Quartz is also very effective for the crown chakra be enhancing clearing the way for Kundalini energy to flow.

Quartz crystal is a purification stone. It offers purification of mental, physical and spiritual bodies.  It can be used to transmute negative energy into positive  and direct negative feelings towards positive happy ones.  Large crystal (or crystal balls) create a healing energy in an area. When worn, quartz crystal offers a flow of energy as well as protecting the aura.  Wear with the point up to bring wisdom and clarity. The same holds true at night, place a quartz crystal with the point towards the top of the head or crown chakra for clarity and wisdom. Aim the point toward your feet to help you calm down so you can get a good night’s rest.

Quartz worn on the finger is believed the create “the Midas touch”.  Quartz earring helps energize and balance the chakras. Keep a single quartz crystal on you or around your area to help maintain balance, energy and protection.

Quartz will stayed attuned to the person to whom it is connected.  A crystal pointing up channels energy to the upper chakras. Which means if you want to connect with spiritual guides or try astral projection, you would point your crystal towards you head. A crystal pointing downward has a grounding effect.  This helps if you are feeling spacey or undecided on an issue. Holding a crystal in your receptive hand (the one you do NOT write with), will double the etheric field of the body.

Quartz is used extensively as a healing stone. It not only allows one to diagnose, but also facilitates healing. I will cover the use and techniques of crystals in healing on another post as that is a vast subject in itself.

Quartz crystal is believed to render negative energy powerless, destroy spells, curses and enchantments and dissolve black magic.


I like to enter every new year with a plan. Sometimes it’s concrete and other times it is more a rough idea of what I want to happen. 2012 had brought some big changes into my life. I purchased a building to open a brick and mortar store.  I was hoping to leave my job at the bank and to dedicate my life to running and growing my small business.  Well, I said this was a year of change for me. It was. Just after I got the store up and running, I got a job promotion. This new position requires some evening and weekend hours and mandatory overtime. And after starting my training for this job, I can see that I am going to like the job a lot and I have an opportunity to advance.

One of my main goals in 2012 was to simplify my life. But, the opposite happened when I bought the building. I need to be at the store. I need to be passionate about this aspect of my business. But it began to overwhelm me and pull me away from my goal of simplifying my life. And though I had no clue how I could get off the crazy treadmill, I held tight to the goal to simplify even though my life was very hectic. And then another change came in the form of the promotion that I mentioned before. The nice thing about having a “real” job is that you punch a clock and go home.  You also have benefits. When you have a business, you never clock out and vacation is not possible. You always have work to do. And when the work is done, there is paperwork to do and taxes to organize. You are never completely finished. With this promotion, I am able to downsize the business to something much more manageable. It will allow me to enjoy time off which is something I have not done since I moved out here.  For almost 4 years, my business was my primary income and the job was a supplemental income. I have finally realized that this new job will allow me to decrease my business and use it as the supplement. And that is a simpler life for me. Everything just fell into place. All I had to do was to “put my intentions/ vision out there”  and allow everything to fall into place. Once more… my “go with the flow” way of life brings me just what I need when I need it. I needed to let go of my habit of living, working and saving for the future and start living now.

May your visions for 2013 be blessed!


Psychic Protection or Shielding from Negative Energy

 What is protection or shielding?

 Protection which is often called shielding, is a type of meditation/ visualization used to protect oneself from negative energy. . It’s one of those building blocks that one needs to create a strong foundation for further spiritual study and exploration. In a nutshell, protection or shielding is creating a protective barrier around oneself, another, place or a material object.

 When wouldyou use Psychic Protection or Shielding

 Psychic protection should be used during any type of spiritual work like divination, healing or ritual. Shielding can be done any time you feel the need for psychic protection whether you are doing anything spiritual or mundane. For example… if you were going in for surgery or flying on a plane, shielding is a good idea. If you were going in for a job interview or any stressful situation, you can shield yourself. If you find yourself picking up on the energy of others, you can protect yourself from it.

 How do you shield yourself from negative energy?

 Shielding is very easy. But first you need to ground and center (directions are on my blog)

  1.  Breathe in deeply through the nose while envisioning that you are drawing in god/ goddess/ guardian angels/ universal energy or whatever…. Into your physical being.
  2. Now exhale deeply through the mouth envisioning this breathe coming out of you as a brilliant white light with shimmers of rainbow colors.
  3. In your minds eye, see this light forming a bubble around you. This bubble is filled with protective energy from those spiritual beings that you requested help from. Don’t forget to thank them.
  4. You can program this bubble to shield differently.
  • You can have it turn reflective like a mirror and reflect anything that you don’t want.
  • My favorite shield is to use the white light with rainbow colors (like a moonstone) and have it transmute or change any negative energy to positive energy that is at my disposal. You see, energy is neither good or bad. It just IS. So if you feeling someone is sending negative energy to you, rather than reflect it and waste free energy, change it to positive energy. Program the shield to make that energy attract love, money, healing and so on.

 Note: The most important thing about a psychic protection or shield is to have FAITH! You have to know within every fiber of your being that you are divinely protected and that no harm can come to you.




Citrine is a beautiful variety of quartz crystal which ranges from yellow to a deep amber color. Often you will see rainbow within the crystal.

Citrine is special in that it does not accumulate negative energy. It can be used to disperse or transmute negative energy into positive.

Citrine is known as the “merchant’s stone” because it is believed to attract wealth and prosperity. It doesn’t just help attract money, it also helps one maintain it. A good way to use citrine for this purpose is to place the crystal form in your cash register or area where you handle your finances (probably your computer room if at home). I also recommend burying 4 citrine points pointing towards your home or place of business… one from each direction. As you do this, meditate on each crystal before placing it in the ground envisioning the desire for prosperity going out into the universe and drawing it into your life.

Citrine can be used to open and activate the solar plexus chakra. This chakra deals with personal power “ chi “, decisiveness, creativity, clarification, intellect, mental focus and strength. Citrine enhances intuition and bridges a connection with higher intelligence. Citrine encourages light-heartedness, happiness and optimism. It may help alleviate fear and assist in elevating one’s self-esteem. Citrine can be used for clearing the aura and aligning the auric body with the physical body.

Citrine is an excellent choice for jewelry as it is inexpensive and readily available. It can be used for any kind of spiritual work including chakra clearing and balancing. Citrine works well in a gemstone elixir. You can find directions on this blog. Citrine makes a great choice for a pendulum.

If I have one superpower, it would be manifesting the right person to help me out. I took a workshop once and though I paid way too much money for this guru, I got one important message out it. When you need or want something, ask your angels for help. I am not the angel kind of person. I am more into quantum physics. I believe that thoughts have energy so you can use them to attract your desires to a certain point. For me… I love to manifest helpers. For 15 years now, I have been running my internet business. When I would get stuck, I would just imagine myself making a connection somehow to someone could help me out. It has worked every single time. I started my internet business with absolutely no idea on how to create a website with a working shopping cart. I was too stubborn to use a free site back when those were popular. I ran into a business group http://www.QFLEA.com That is a connection that has been a huge source of help, advice and wisdom for me. I upgraded to Frontpage and was totally overwhelmed by this huge and complicated web design program. I found Tina Clarke from any-expression.com/ and she rebuilt my site with the new program which made it possible for me to study how it operated. Once my site was looking good… I was directed to Cricket’s internet SEO and marketing classes which helped me to understand how search engines work http://www.gnc-web-creations.com/. My business grew steadily and even when the economy crashed, my sales grew. I credit this to all the fine folks that have helped me along my journey. And this year… even though I don’t do New Year’s resolutions…. I did agree with myself that I must start blogging regularly. I am not motivated to say much so it has been a major struggle. BUT… as always.. I attracted a teacher and motivator. It had been awhile since I took Cricket’s class so I wanted to see if anything has changed that I need to know about. She updated her classes to include a blog challenge to people motivated to write daily on their blogs. And here I am… blogging for 4 days in a row.

Why am I telling you this? Besides wanting to thank these good and generous people…. I want to help you learn to attract what you want in life. I want you to attract the help you need. I don’t ask for wealth when I manifest. I want to attract ways to create wealth on my own. I am not a skilled person. I am a very slow learner. But I have learned to attract help. You can do the same. Next time you are struggling to understand something…. imagine yourself sending your desire for help… out into the vast universe… where it makes connections to the right person that can help you. Give it a shot!

You can also change it from practical help to spiritual help. Ask your angels or the universe or whatever works for you to help you connect and receive messages or guidance.

Every day I get requests from people to pay me to do spells for them. . My goal is to get everyone to become their own guru… minister… alchemist etc… I believe that you are the best person to do energywork for your desire… whether you want to attract love, money, healing or anything else. Spells are nothing more than a prayer enhanced with any combination of words, gestures, candles, incense and other implements. It takes no special skills to do them… it just takes faith in yourself.

I get many questions about attracting wealth through spells and such. The truth is, it doesn’t take spells to attract wealth. In fact, no magick is necessary at all. There is one easy rule to remember:

“It takes money to make money”…. In the spiritual world, like energy attracts like energy.

Most people think one needs to attract wealth to become wealthy. The secret to attracting wealth is to stop the flow of money OUT of your life. Living beyond our means is an epidemic in this country. We want others to see our success so we buy homes and cars that are beyond our budget hoping others will be impressed with the illusion we have created. We waste money on clothing, jewelry and cosmetics at our own financial peril. We wine and dine and vacation like royalty.

The #1 thing you can do to CREATE wealth is to eliminate debt. When you borrow money through a loan or a credit card, you pay interest. Store credit cards are the worst! Some are 35+%. Pull out your current credit card bills and look at your credit card percentage rates. Those rates don’t matter if you pay your balance off every month. If not…. Think of it like this. If you have a store credit card at 35% and you run a balance each month. You are paying $35 for every $100.00. If you made a very large purchase because the store had an irresistible sale and you don’t pay the balance off when the bill comes in. You have not only lost that bargain… you are probably paying much more than the original price if you take a long period of time to pay it off. The store gives coupons to be used with those with the store cards in hopes people over-spend so they can’t pay off the balance. The store makes back that money plus more in interest fees. If you have gone over your credit limit with that shopping spree…. There will also be a fee (probably $40.00 or more). Read your credit card statement to find out just how much money the store or bank that offers the card makes from lending you money! They love it when you are late with a payment and go over your credit limit because they profit from your weakness.

The secret to creating wealth isn’t magick, it is financial discipline. When you borrow money, someone else makes money from you. Because you don’t have money… they use their money to make money from you. When you save money, your money begins to make money for you. As the economy improves, you will be able to make a better profit from your own money. For now, focus on paying down debts. The sooner you stop paying interest to others, the faster you generate a nest egg that can be invested.

A money saving tip is to pay your bills on time. Look at your bills and see what fees they charge if you are late. My oil company gives me a 5% discount for paying within 10 days of my fill-up. You bet that I get it there in a day or so. Many bills will give a discount for paying on time or a penalty for paying after a certain date. This adds up especially when you consider multiple bills every month. It doesn’t sounds like much….. but if you add up over a year what you give to these companies and get nothing in return. This is pure profit for them.

Do you overdraft you bank accounts? Check out those fees! If you want prosperity in your life…. Stop spending what you can’t afford. Pay off debts and start saving. Learn to be satisfied with what you can safely afford. Over time, if you have saved and invested wisely, that will grow. And the great thing is…. As you have more to work with, the better rates you will get.

Check out the interest rates on a savings account and CDs. Right now… they are around 1% if you are lucky. Back when our economy was good, they were around 5%. The rates now are terrible but will improve as the economy improves. So for now… there is no good, guaranteed and risk-free place to grow interest on your money. BUT…. It doesn’t take a financial guru to see that financial companies are making a huge profit from those to whom they give credit. You won’t make big money saving right now. But, if you are using credit, you are paying large fees for that credit. Stop borrowing… start saving!

I have a few rules that I keep for myself to keep me from spending more than I save.

1. Forget that you have a savings account. It’s not a savings if you keep taking the money out. I do use mine for tax money. I put it in savings and allow it to build interest until taxes come due. Only that amount comes out. It can be used for emergencies (a broken furnace is an emergency… a vacation is not) but must be paid back as quickly as possible.
2. You can set up your checking account so that a certain amount automatically gets transferred to savings each month. You won’t even miss it but over time, it will build up and you will thank yourself for it.
3. When you pay off a debt, take that amount and add it to what you pay on another debt until you run out of debts. Once there, your money can make money for you. You have just changed the energy flow of your wealth flow from negative to positive when you get rid of debt.
4. NEVER borrow from your retirement fund.
5. Stop overspending on gifts for others. The items you put on your store credit card for Christmas… will likely end up in a yard sale in the spring while you are still paying on it. If you have a large family that feels that adults need gifts…. Then institute a gift exchange so each person buys 1 gift and gets one gift.
6. Stop trying to impress others. Buy a smaller house and a smaller car. No, you won’t impress anyone but yourself when you have money left over at the end of the month for the savings.
7. A new car…. Once driven off the lot loses 20% of it’s value. Think twice before buying new. Take a trusted friend who knows cars to help you find a good used one and run it into the ground. Don’t even consider leasing a car!
8. When you need something from the store…. Don’t lose sight. The stores love to woo buyers with sales and coupons. Buy only what you came for and don’t be tempted.
9. Always look for a better job or money making opportunity
10. Remember…. $100 wasted at a thrift store is as bad as $100 spent at Abercrombie’s. Pass it up and put in the bank or towards a debt.
11. Always ask yourself…. Is this a need or a want? Can it wait till I am free of debt? How much will it REALLY cost me in the end with fees and interest? How will I feel about this item 2 years from now?
12. Be careful when choosing a mate. If you are a saver and your new spouse is a spend thrift, you may find that your mate can spend faster than you can save. This is a major reason for divorce. Find someone that has similar financial goals and level of responsibility. Teach financial responsibility to your kids and set an example for them.
13. Credit cards can be a good thing. Use them wisely. Use your credit card rather than your debit card with your living expenses. At the end of the month, pay off that balance. If you have one that has cash back rewards (or other rewards), you may even come out ahead. This builds a good credit history for you. BUT…. The catch is that you must be very disciplined in your spending so you can’t spend more than you can pay off. Once you carry a balance, you are going to pay interest. This is where people get into trouble. This is where the credit card companies want you to be because they make money. They don’t make anything from you if you pay off the balance. If you do create a balance you can’t pay off, put the card away until the balance is paid off. If this becomes a pattern, you lack the discipline to use this system to build credit.
14. Gambling for profit is just plain STUPID! Gamble a little for fun. Don’t gamble because it might pay off. Those casinos don’t wine and dine you because they like you. Same goes for lottery tickets and bingo. Go for fun and set a small limit. Leave credit and debit cards at home. Take a small amount of cash and quit when it runs out. Have a good time! BUT….. let it end when the money runs out. It only takes 1 ticket to win the lottery. The odds are so bad that 100 tickets won’t make it any more likely that you will win. If you normally spend $100 per week on gambling, you are already wealthy. You are just giving it away.

I am not telling you that prosperity spells don’t work. I am telling you that wealth is already there within your reach. The only thing standing between you and wealth are your choices. Are you spending or saving? Is the illusion of wealth keeping you from genuine wealth? Do you drink or smoke a lot? Get your hair and nails done regularly? Trade your car in every year? Eating out every day? Examine the energy of your prosperity flow. What is coming in each month? What is going out? What is being saved or invested?

Track your spending for a month… every last penny. Who is getting your wealth?
You or a lender?

Looking at your finances from an energy standpoint…. If you have debt, you are paying fees and losing interest while the company that gave you credit made a big profit from it. Your paycheck is a material manifestation of your work. So you worked (energy) and made this money (energy). If you have debt, you have to pay what you owe plus interest and fees. Which means you are giving your energy to someone else like water down the drain.

If you pay down debts…. You stem that flow of energy. The more you pay off, the less that goes out. Once you pay off debt, you slow it to a trickle. You can’t completely stop the flow of energy because you have to pay for utilities, food and living expenses and taxes. You pay for what you use. You use energy to heat your home so you give energy (through money you worked for) in exchange. It balances out. BUT…. There is now surplus energy because you stopped the flow to a lender. So that is saved and invested which creates a new inward flow (paycheck and interest). Done correctly, you can have more coming in from the invested money than you are spending on the living expenses. That has a big compounding effect. Cha Ching!!!! Now you have the flow of wealth working in your favor. Your money is now making more money.

You see… you don’t need the lottery or a deceased wealthy relative to be wealthy. Look to your financial energy flow. Keep more then you use… and you are working towards wealth. No magick needed.

Keep in mind…. many people come into wealth through luck. However, the outgoing flow soon depletes their funds and they are back where they started. You must always keep more coming in than going out. It is ok to share. In fact I believe that prosperity shared comes back to you. However, there is balance once again. You can’t give more than you take in or you will lose the ability to give at some point.

Hey….. can someone forward this to congress? They don’t get it yet *lol*.


Now that things have begun to wind down for me….. I normally take this peaceful period to reflect on the past year…. and the new year I have just entered into. I don’t like New Year resolutions because it’s normally one big thing that is usually broken part way thru the year. I will share my spiritual self-exam w/ you.  Use it as a guide to help you focus your energy towards the things you want to improve or change.

I ask myself questions like this:

  • What happned in 2010 that: you are proud of?
  • that you are not proud of?
  • what choices or changes did you do that worked for you?
  • what ones didn’t?
  • what positive things did you manifest in your life?
  • Did any dreams come to pass?
  • What obstacles did you overcome?
  • What blocks/ challenges held you back?
  • What did you learn from the past year?
  • What inspired or motivated you?
  • Did you inspire anyone else?
  • What disappointments did you experience?
  • What healed you?
  • What made your heart soar?
  • What made you cry?
  • Who do you miss in your life (someone what has passed or just has lost touch)?
  • Did you reach out to anyone in need? Were you there when someone needed you?
  • What made you stronger in 2010 that gives you the confidence to overcome a blockage in 2011?
  • All in all….. do you feel that you evolved spiritually over the past year?
  • What changes do you plan for this year?
  • What can you do differently?
  • What that went well for you can you continue doing?
  •  What is something that you can’t change but need to accept and then let it go?
  • What is something new that you want to learn or explore?
  • What goals have you set for yourself (personally, professionally, financially, romantically, spiritually)?

May 2001 be a year of profound blessings, joy, good health, love and prosperity!

Love & Blessings!


Count your Blessings!

Did you know thoughts and words have energy? Like energy attracts like energy in the spiritual realms. Negative thoughts and words can create negative results. Ever have “one of those days” and you dare to ask what else could possibly go wrong next… and next thing you know…. Something happens to bring your mood down even further? A huge example can be seen in the news as the American economic crisis unfolds. The media fed us fear over the last 8 years on the economy, folks began to worry and react. Like a giant snowball, this problem started from a tiny snowflake into a huge monster because they continually gave us reasons to be fearful.

BUT…. The good news is that positive energy can have just the opposite affect. You see, no amount of worry can do anything to change the situation our government has put us in. There is really nothing any of us can do short of writing our leaders and expressing our concerns. So, if there is nothing you can do, then you need to put that concern on a shelf for now. Life is too short to worry about problems that haven’t yet come to pass. If and when they do, you can then take action towards your own solution to dealing with it.

What can I do now?

Start a blessing journal. I’m talking about little things that happen during the day that make you smile inside. It might be something like finding a dollar in the parking lot or winning a buck with a scratch off ticket. Or your child blowing you a kiss or saying something that makes you laugh your butt off. It might be the beauty of a spider web dripping with dew or your dog licking the tears off your face. It might be more practical like your electric bill dropped $20 this month or you didn’t get stopped in road construction today. The idea is to pay attention to the tiniest things for which you are thankful. Write them down. Set a daily goal of 10 or 20. You might want to purchase a journal that strikes your fancy and a matching pen. You can just use a spiral notebook. It doesn’t matter. Being mindful is all it takes.

What in God’s name are you talking about?!

By keeping this journal, you are looking for things for which to be thankful…. Things that brought a little lift to your spirit even if only for a fleeting second. Writing them takes a little effort and discipline. But it also helps keep your mind thinking of new things to add. In other words, it makes you more aware.

How does this work?

I have shown you what fear does with the drastic example of the media and the American public. From that, you can see what fear does. It causes us to react and change our behaviors. Fear is a negative emotion…. And it has negative results. With that in mind, what difference would your life have if you turned your focus from fear towards hope? Have you ever worried to death about something and it didn’t get any better? Worry can’t fix anything. If a situation is negative it can’t be fixed with negativity.

Positive situations don’t need fixed. With the infusion of more positive energy, it only gets better.

By training your mind to focus towards the positive, you are empowered to overcome the negative. Bad things will happen to all of us. It can never be fixed with negative emotions.

So… by looking for reasons to feel blessed, you will start to become more and more aware of that feeling in your day. As you feel that little lift, your emotional vibration increases. This mindfulness is very habit forming. You will not only feel better, but you will also notice that things tend to go your way more often. Some would call that coincidence or even say it’s your imagination. But those who work with energy understand that like energy attracts like energy. What you are doing is using the law of attraction to create a happier state of mind.

How will counting my blessings help me?

The more blessed you feel, the more blessing you attract. And when life throws you a curve ball, you will be able to focus on the solution, not the problem. If there is no solution, then you understand that you have to change focus towards something positive. And when troublesome situations pop up, you already know that you have to calm down and keep your emotions in check. Find a silver lining in the problem and expand upon it.

How do I find the time?

If you are looking for time, it isn’t there. If you make the time, then you will have it. It takes maybe 5 or 10 minutes a day to do this. Keep your journal with you. Write when you sit at the doctor’s office. Write while waiting for your kid’s sport to begin. Write while you wait in traffic.

Is there anything else I can do?

Yes! You can share this practice with others. The country (and world) runneth over with negative energy. If more and more Americans would focus on the good things in our lives rather than the bad, we could actually change the negative situation to a place of hope once again.  Hope is a very powerful positive emotion. If I had a TV show I could reach lots of people. Since I don’t, I’m doing it one person at a time.

1 week challenge

All I ask of you is that you do this for one week. Set a goal of 10 or more blessings per day. See how your emotional state is at the end of the challenge. See if anything has improved in your life over that period. What do you have to lose but negative energy?

Cool idea!

If you have shared this with others, you can all get together weekly or monthly for coffee and to share your experiences. Talking to others who also work from this higher state of mind will take you even higher.

An Invitation

I have formed a manifesting group online. If you want to share your experiences or discuss this powerful tool for creating change, please feel free to comment on my blog.

My Goal

My goal for this is to try to overcome the negativity in this country/ world caused  by the irresponsibility of our leaders which is exploited by the media. My goal is to empower the public by teaching them to focus away from fear and towards hope.  My goal is to give you tools to free yourself from the downward spiral we all face from time to time.  Look at the difficulties that past generations have overcome (Holocaust, The Great Depression etc…). Our problems pale in comparison. Facing life’s challenges is part of life as we know it.  You can be crippled or crushed by it or you can use it to evolve spiritually.

I encourage you to research this further by checking out the following resources.
