I Act As If And I Can See All And I See LOVE - We Are ALL Connected

Something to think about today.  

Love Alone       
is capable of uniting
living beings in such a way as
to complete and fulfill them,
for it alone takes them and         
joins them by what is deepest
in themselves. 
(Pierre Teilhard De Chardin 1881-1955, French paleontologist and philosopher)

If we could only LOVE, truly and deeply … not the romantic kind of love, although there is a time and place for that … but the LOVE that comes from Spirit … from the Divine, Sacred and Holy .. oh what joy, what wonder, what a marvelous, mysterious world this would be … ahhh, but it is, we just don’t “see” it.  Well, I choose to “see” you … and you are all beautiful.  At least I can try and act as if I do.  It’s a beginning.  

 Wishing ALL, Peace, Love, Compassion and Happiness.

Balancing Your Chakras With Crystals

The other day my sister, who is a message therapist and a Reiki Master (I’m attuned to the Master Symbol myself) gave me a session with her newly purchased Chakra Therapy System which is pictured above.  It cost a ton of money by the way … there is no way I can afford to acquire that for myself.  It is designed under the guidance of the Devic and Celestial Realms to assist humankind.  I have to say I do believe she is a wonderful healer and this made me feel fabulous afterwards.  It just balances your chakras and I believe you can do the same thing in a much more inexpensive way.  

Since I love crystals and stones and believe in their energy (all things have energy) using chakra balancing crystals is a simple way to do a chakra healing and chakra cleanse.  

Place a stone of the appropriate color on each area.                                  

This will give each chakra a boost of its own vibration without altering its energies or the system's overall harmony.  

Use small stones, such as polished or tumbled crystals. Make sure that they have been energetically cleansed before you begin.  An easy way is to first run water over them using your kitchen faucet to wash away negative energy, then place them in the sun for a couple of hours to cleanse them further and energize them.  I also use selenite to cleanse my stones and jewelry.  Selenite is a special stone that never needs cleansing itself.    If you check my older posts, I have one just on this fabulous stone which is one of my favorites.  

You can check your local new age shops or the internet for these stones.  It is best, if you can, to pick out your own stones.  I live in an area now where that is just not possible so I would have no compunctions to shop for them on the internet.  
Choose your stones and arrange them in sequence beside where you will be lying. When you are ready, you can easily pick up the stones and place them on your body without them falling off.  

Even though you might not sense any change, allow yourself a few moments to recover after having the stones in place for five or six minutes.  

*It is helpful to start with a grounding stone, such as smoky quartz, between your legs to act as an anchor.  

*For the base chakra, place a red stone at the bottom of the spine or two stones of the same sort at the top of each leg. This will balance physical energy, motivation and practicality, and promote a sense of stability.  

*For the second or sacral chakra, position a orange-coloured stone on the lower abdomen to balance creativity, feelings and sexual drive, and to release stress and blocks in your life that prevent enjoyment.  

*At the solar plexus use a yellow colour stone, positioned between the navel and ribcage to clear your thoughts, reduce anxiety and improve confidence. If there is tension here, put an energy-shifting stone, such as tiger's eye or clear quartz, on the diaphragm.  

*To balance the heart chakra, place a green stone in the center of the chest. Add a pink stone for emotional clearing. This will balance your relationships, personal development, direction and sharing.  

*For the throat chakra use a light blue stone, to ease communication difficulties, express yourself and improve the flow of information. Place it near the base of the throat, at the top of the breastbone.  

*When using chakra balancing crystals to balance the brow or third eye chakra, place an indigo or dark blue stone in the center of the forehead to increase understanding, perception and knowledge, and to promote intuitive skills and memory. You can also try amethyst or another purple stone.  

*The crystal for the crown chakra should rest just above the top of your head. It integrates and balances the whole chakra system and channels Universal life energy into the body, balancing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the self. It also stimulates fine levels of perception, intuition and inspiration. If you use an amethyst for the brow chakra, use clear quartz crystal for the crown. If you used a dark blue stone for the brow, choose a violet crystal or gemstone to position at the crown chakra.

 I hope that your found this helpful.  I wish Health, Love and Happiness to ALL !

Mermaid Assemblage Alterted Art Piece

The Sea Maid
from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream  
To where I watch on the yellow sands,
and they pluck sweet music with sea-cold hands.
They bring me coral and amber clear.
But when the stars in heaven appear,
their music ceases, they glide away.
They swim for their grottoes across the bay.
Then listen only to my shrill tune,
the surfy tide, and the wondering moon.

Today, I would like to highlight a Mermaid Assemblage Altered Art piece that I recently listed at my Etsy shop.  As with most of my altered art pieces, I give them a "vintage/Victorian" feel but at the same time it is contemporary.  Please feel free to visit a while there.  

 I bow to the Divine within you.  I honor the place within you where the whole Universe dwells.

Believe And Watch Your Dreams Come True !

I Won Two Giveaways - Thank You Both So Much - Positive Energy Abounds

I won two giveaways.  This must be a good omen for me ... other positive and kind experiences have been happening to me in the past few months, so it must be the Universe telling me to STOP WORRYING.  I'm so very good at that, and it's a hard habit to break ... but I'm not giving up and work on it each and every day.

I’m a bit late on blogging about this … my brain gets so sluggish and I don’t remember to do things that I should … but better late than never. 

Recently I won two blog giveaways, pictured below.  Just click on the picture to get to the blog and/or Etsy shop.  I just think it is so nice when bloggers can do this.  I hope to someday be able to do this myself.  In the meantime, thanks again to Kim and Teresa for their fabulous giveaways.  They are both so unique and beautiful.  My royal black cat sits by the computer, I can “feel” her purring away.  Still have to frame the beautiful print … but I will eventually.  

The best thing about these giveaways is the positive energy that it makes … making the world a better place one positive thought and deed at a time.

Happiness to ALL !

Fairy Queen - Inspires and Guides

Greetings all who come in Peace and Compassion.  Below is my Fairy Queen Plaque Altered Art Piece that is available at my Etsy Shop.  She has a "vintage" feel to her and there is a fairy poem on the back so you can use this as a plaque or an "ornament". 

 Many a time I have pondered about the Fairy Queen.  From early childhood, through the years until the present moment.  Mysterious and marvelous is she … real to me and existing in my heart and soul.  She can be found somewhere on this earthy plane, not to be seen by most.  Still, a favored few can see her if only from afar.  

 I will be coming back to write of her from time to time.  Below is a marvelous poem by Kipling.  It just sings to my heart.  I hope it does for you as well. 

I have a thousand men," said he,
"To wait upon my will;
And towers nine upon the Tyne,
And three upon the Till."
"And what care I for your men? " said she,
"Or towers from Tyne to Till?
Still you must go with me," said she,
"To wait upon my will.
And you may lead a thousand men
Nor ever draw the rein,
But before you lead the Fairy Queen
'Twill burst your heart in twain."
He has slipped his foot from the stirrup-bar,
The bridle from his hand,
And he is bound by hand and foot
To the Queen of Fairy Land.
~Rudyard Kipling~

The Goddess Tarot - I Used It As An Oracle

Greetings all people who gather in Peace and LOVE.   I don't really read the tarot cards ...but I do try an oracle reading from time to time.  The other day I decided to try my hand at an oracle reading for myself and my situation in life at the moment from The Goddess Tarot.  I was inspired by the Etsy Tarot Readers Guild which I recently joined.  I really admire anyone who is good at reading tarot cards ... I do believe it is a gift and that we all can learn to get in touch with our intuition through practice, meditation, ritual and prayer.  

Well, I drew two cards ... I just wanted one but low and behold two were stuck together, so I assumed I was meant to see both.  You can see what there were below.  

The first one I drew and looked at was the Goddess of Fertility (III) and then Gaia (XXI).  This whole deck of cards are just beautiful, by the way. 

I felt these were a very good omen for me indeed, especially with the Gaia card which can mean experiencing a connection with the universe.  I have been experiencing this for some time now, and it has been growing and growing.   It can also mean a sense of expansion and hope.

The Fertility Goddess (the benevolent Navajo corn Goddess) can mean feeling of fertility and abundance and creativity.  Now there is no way it can be a pregnancy, so perhaps abundance in my creativity/art.  

For your convenience, I have a link to Amazon where you can find this deck.  I bought this deck quite a few years ago and had the workbook but alas I have misplaced that book.  Oh well, it will turn up when I'm meant to find it. 

Doing this helped me into that "good" feeling place that it so needed to move on to the good things in life that our Holy Mother so wants for all of  us ... so in the end this was a very positive moment for me. 


Any ideas on the meaning of these is welcomed ... positive ones that is.
Happiness, Abundance, Health and LOVE to ALL !

IMBOLC - Candlemas - Some History, Traditions and Folklore

Imbolc, the second of the four great fire festivals brings the first thaw of winter. It is a time of rebirth, fertility and nurturing under the auspices of the Virgin Goddess. 

In the Christian tradition Imbolc has become known as Candlemas, and is a time for rebirth, renewal, refreshing, purification, cleaning out the old and preparing for the new, spring cleaning, preparing for spring, new hope, new growth, new beginnings. 

Now I know where “spring cleaning” came from.  I don’t know I if it is a tradition among many anymore, but we still do this and for sure my Mom did Spring and Fall cleaning.  I think the world would be a happier place if people celebrated and noted the change of seasons like in olden days.  It doesn’t matter what spiritual persuasion you are, it would fit into anyone’s religious and/or spiritual beliefs I would think.   It would make us feel more united with one another and with nature.  Just my two cents.

Imbolc is a holiday with a variety of names, depending on which culture and location you’re looking at. In the Irish Gaelic, it’s called Oimelc, which translates to “ewe’s milk.” It’s a precursor to the end of winter when the ewes are nursing their newly born lambs. Spring and the planting season are right around the corner.

Imbolc brings the very first whisperings of spring. Snowdrops peep up through the cold earth and the tiniest buds begin to form on the trees. Winter is by no means over - in fact the worst is often to come - but there is a glimmer of hope. In northern latitudes, it becomes obvious that the days are lengthening. Candles are lit to represent the return of the Sun the the divine spark of creativity.  

Happiness and Abundance to ALL

Fairy Of Sweet - Art Print, Positive Affirmation and Positive Quotes

I release any unpleasantness from the past and let it sail away.
I envision it going through the mists of my memories,
over the horizon, and out of sight.
LOVE rushes in to fill
any empty places within my heart or mind. Now I am free
to do what is before me and free to do it better than ever
before. I am free to enrich my life and everything concerning me.


“The soul of sweet delight, can never be defiled.” ~William Blake  

“A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”  ~William Shakespeare

I just wanted to highlight this Fairy Of Sweet Print that I am offering at my Etsy shop.
