My Favorite Crystals and Crystal Skull

It’s 1:00am and I feel compelled to write about my favorite crystals so here I am! If you’re up at this early morning hour, it’s meant for you to think about how crystals could add/contribute to the life for your highest good. I will be overviewing six crystals but five stones. Please feel free to comment below on your own favorite crystals and why! Sharing is always caring!

 

Amethyst is the stone for aiding in the development of opening and working with the third eye which is also known as the 6th chakra. It can be held during meditation and if placed on the third eye one is able to feel the energy it transmits. It’s a wonderful stone to use before spirit communication to help receive information clearer. I also love its beautiful tones!

Citrine is a crystal that represents the solar plexus chakra and is generally used for developing personal power, creativity, and intelligent decisions. I selected this stone to aid in helping me with manifesting quicker honestly. When meditating I like to keep this stone in my hand or near me to help me bring in my manifestations. 

Blue Lapis Lazuli is used for enlightenment, seeking truth, and for psychic development. Wearing this stone assists in channeling your angels and Spirit. I find this stone extremely instrumental in my spiritual journey so it is also with me.

Green Aventurine is a protection stone for the fourth chakra or otherwise known as the heart chakra. This stone will protects others from tapping in or taking energy from you. I am highly sensitive so I do use to stone as a form of energetic protection (along with asking my angels and Spirit posse for protection), AND it is a stone for being in prosperity into one’s life. 

Black Tourmaline is used for protection and grounding. When I was suffering from panic attacks due to an incident that I was pre-warned psychically about, I learned about this stone and from then on I’ve been keeping it on my person. Whenever I feel like I need energetic protection I just find this stone in my crystal bag and hold it while deep breathing and visualizing a shield around me and eventually the threat will pass. 

The crystal skull that I have was given to me by my Spiritual Mentor, Sa Eeda, so it’s extra special to me. There are many different sizes of skulls but I have a tiny one, but size doesn’t matter, just its intention. Crystal skulls have been used for many centuries for shamanic practices in healing and awaken higher consciousness. I carry the skull for these such reasons. I’m always aiming to learn more so that I can share more of what I receive to you and others who are reading this article now. 

There is so much more information you can find on these crystals as well as other crystals that are not on my list. I listed spiritual reasons for why I carry these specific crystals but they do have physical healing properties as well in which I highly encourage you to research if that’s what you’re looking for, and then share what you find with me. I don’t claim to know all the mystical answers, but I will always share what I know and continue to find true to my inner core.

The Golden Door called Opportunity

Hello Loves,

I’m back! It’s been a long time away but I am now ready to share my experiences and drop some knowledge too! I have to go back a bit so that everything will make sense so back we go to November 10th, last month. I was on a trip en route to my residency in Jacksonville, Florida when the plane made a pick up stop in Nashville, Tennessee. I was planning on sleeping the reminder of the trip as I had done up to that point but then a blonde haired older woman sat next to me and this was the beginning of it all.

Susan Double V is a retired employee from the Federal Government who was on vacation visiting a friend and was going back home to a small town in Georgia about a 1 1/2 outside of Jacksonville. Susan spoke to me the entire time about looking for a job with the Feds with my soon to acquire degree. She even gave me her contact information in case I need help and or advice along the way. She even told me what classifications to apply for. I don’t believe in coincidences so I knew she was talking to me for a reason even if I didn’t understand it at the time. In my previous post, Florida and The Face of Change  I spoke about the change I experienced while I was in Florida which is following up to the finale that occurred the Monday I got back from my residency.

At the end of the day I was called into an office with my supervisor, HR manager, and CFO and I was informed that with the current changes of the company that as of December 31st I will no longer be employed with them, I was being laid off. I immediately started crying because I was taken a back. I knew I was going through a change but I couldn’t believe it was this drastic! A few months ago I applied for an entry level position in the field of mental health and I was offered the position but I declined for two reason. The first reason depended on the schedule, which ended up being different than what I had applied for, and second the pay was less than what I was currently making. I wanted one out of the two to work in my favor so I declined. Upon receiving notice of my layoff I went online and saw the same position offered with a different more favorable schedule so I called and expressed my interest then continued contact with HR until I was offered the position which was only a week waiting time.

Turns out the position was at the same facility that I had originally interviewed for a few months ago so I did not need to re-interview. It was although the Universe was tired of waiting around for me to commit to change so it went ahead and made it happen for me. I have to admit I was distressed but I kept pushing through after all I still had the quarter to finish (I’ve just completed!) and I AM STILL EMPLOYED while my new job begins next week, I never gave up, because life wasn’t gonna give up on me. 

In order to receive my severance check I have to stay until the end of the month so I will be working two full time jobs until the 30th which means I’ll be absent from my pages (The Free Spirited Facebook page and this website). I remember doing a reading for a woman who had been laid off but her mindset was stuck in the negative and she only wanted to hear what was the next worst thing that was going to happen. You can’t stay in the negative if you want change to occur, you must stay diligent and positive in moving forward! When one door closes it’s really meant to open another ♥.

Movie Review of Marvel’s Doctor Strange

I don’t know much about the Marvel Comic series because I’ve never been a comic reader, but this movie exceeded all over my expectations! I felt drawn to see this particular movie and I’ve learned to follow my instincts. Now, I won’t ruin the movie for those of you who haven’t seen it but I will say it’s full of metaphysical and mystical references which is what attracted me to the movie in the first place!

I give the movie 5 stars because the visuals are literally out this world (3D experience). If you’ve seen it, please comment and share your comments!

Combining Spiritualism & Metaphysics for Counseling and Healing

Throughout my life I always felt different and separated from the mainstream of society. I never conformed because it just never felt like it was something for me to do. When I was 23 year young I came across a Spiritualist church in the Sacramento area. I didn’t know what to expect but was open to the new experience. From the moment I stepped in the service I found a home I had been searching for. After a few months of attending I decided to join the church and began taking Mediumship courses under the Morris Pratt Institute educational courses. My goal was and is still to possess a certificate in Mediumship. Since I am a life learner certificates, diplomas, and degrees are always worthwhile to pursue. This course is not easy. I’ll talk about this process in another blog, I’m getting side tracked as I often do…. but yes, Spiritualists hold strong to their beliefs and do not believe in engaging in any other source than from Spirit for spiritual guidance. That means no tarot/oracle card readings, no palm readings, or astrological readings, because they DO NOT CONSTITUTE THE EXISTENCE OF LIFE AFTER DEATH. I can dig that.

A Spiritualist as defined by the National Spiritualist Association of Churches (NSAC) Spiritualism Defined as

“one who believes, as the basis of his or her religion, in the communication between this and the Spirit World by means of mediumship and who endeavors to mould his or her character and conduct in accordance with the highest teachings derived from such communication”.

This is what I believe, but it is not all that I accept as my truth. See, I never want to be set in one particular area because they’re so much more to learn. So much more to learn that I’m always hoping to learn truth that I feel resonates with my higher self. I didn’t have to search for too long before I was introduced to the subject of Metaphysics.

Metaphysics as defined by the University of Metaphysics (which I am a student of) states

“The word Metaphysics comes to us from Ancient Greece, a combination of two words: Meta meaning over or beyond and physics meaning the physical, material world.  Thus, the combination refers to such concerns that are beyond or transcend the material world. In the common way of speaking, such questions are considered religious, spiritual, or possibly philosophical, depending on the person asking them.Metaphysics contributes a fundamental level of understanding derived from experience and advanced intuitive knowing on how things “really are.” However, when considered from the spiritual perspective, Metaphysics is not only the pursuit of Truth; it also offers service to the greater good of humankind.”

Metaphysics on the contrary supports other instrumental tools for spirit communication because of the philosophy behind the instruments being used. Instruments as earlier described, palm reading, tarot/oracle reading, and etc.

So how can these two be combined to service others one might ask? Both constitute and demonstrate spiritual perspectives in how they serve others, yet one is more stringent than the other and neither one is better than the next it just really depends on the community and what the needs are in terms of spiritual needs. Like I said before, I need to have options and knowledge galore. I love both concepts and plan to incorporate both when I enter into the world of mental health counseling after graduation  some day in the future. I can see it happening, it will happen! That is called affirmative thinking, a metaphysical concept!

How to Manifest Your Dreams

I’ve been working with manifestations for a long time now, we all have, yet we wouldn’t necessarily call it manifestations. Many would call it an answer to their prayers, but I encourage you to look a bit more deeper and give yourself some credit. The Law of Attraction tells us that we attract what we emit, metaphysically and spiritually speaking. Continue reading the following and you too can understand and realize how to manifest your own dreams:

What is it that you really want?

Ambiguous, right? Yeah I know, there’s so many things in life we really want to do so it can be difficult to chose just one thing but you must. Deciding what you want is the first step in manifesting your dreams because it sets a specific desire and intention. I’m writing this as I’m needing to be reminded… so what it is that I want?

image

Being of service to others, spiritually, metaphysically, and theoretically as a future Mental Health Counselor and Spiritual Counselor, that’s what I want. I’ve been gifted with spiritual talents so that I can be of assistance to others who are lost, hopeless, and those who just need someone to believe in them. This is my life and soul mission, so how do I get there?

image

I’ve taken courses in mediumship through my church’s organization, which has been a very lengthy and informative process. Spiritualists require strict coursework, guidelines, and verifiable experiences in order to become accredited within the organization as a medium who serves within the NSAC (National Spiritualist Association of Churches). I also take metaphysical courses in specializing in Metaphysical Counseling with the University of Metaphysics, not to mention my grad school coursework of Mental Health Counseling. The message here is if you decide to reach out to someone who claims they are a spiritual advisor or counselor who claims they can read your future be weary. Ask to see credentials, it’s ok.

So here I am hoping intending to meet like minded individuals who are willing to help me along my path so that I can help others on their path too.

Believe you have what you want and live the life you want. Manifest and create.

This Hippie says…..

According to an Australian Aboriginal Proverb:

“We are all visitors to this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”

This just makes sense if you really took the time to go deeper into reasoning. I mean let’s ponder on this for a moment…. if nothing had purpose and we all lived from a “something”, then everything would be nothing. There would be nothing that would tie us together. Existence just doesn’t operate in that way. Life has meaning and nothing is a coincidence. Life is only a metaphor for school. As we live, we learn. As we learn, we grow, which is the purpose of everything.

Spirituality is the key to awakening. How is anyone suppose to tell you how you see, feel, or connect with yourself and the world around you? They can’t. This is a personal journey in a never ending path of truth. Energy is everything. It is created and never destroyed. Once one realizes this everything that was once known as truth collapses and reforms. Metaphysically speaking, we live in the moment of now where we are the creator of our lives, our paths, our future, ultimately our destiny. Give yourself some credit, if you were made from God, then God you are, and you too have the power to create your own reality, energy, and desires. Uplift yourself and others, only then are you living up to your soul’s purpose of existence; love.
