2013 Crystal Ally Card Reading
I have chosen a three card pull for this reading. I am asking my crystal allies for messages pertaining to this year and the allies that choose to bring and aid us in working towards them. I am asking them to be clear and specific with regard to the new energies that are now available and beckoning us to respond.
Deck Used: “The Crystal Ally Cards” by Naisha Ashian
The First Card:
Labradorite: This card sets the tone for this year with the MAGIC of labradorite leading the way. Labradorite is the stone of magical awakenings, feminine power, kundalini, and the strength of the Great Mother in the New Moon. It is the stone of hidden information held in the dark abyss of yourself, the cosmos, the shadow and all things unseen. I feel this card is a signature card of the whole year and the urgency needed to surrender to the unknowing and the uncontrollable energy of the times. It is the willingness of exploration of depth that allows things to change on the surface and the decension of exploration this stone urges you to take.
The Second Card:
FIRE: The second card is the Elemental card of FIRE. This card signifies TRANSMUTATION in its fastest element. FIRE burns everything to the ground so that things may start anew. The energy of Fire is fast and consuming and urges action. This is a year of taking action on the guidance received to employ the change needed in your life.
The Third Card:
There were two cards that were pulled together for the third card. Danburite and Fulgerite, signifying Spirit and Prayer. With both, it is a message to turn our attention to the Divine and ask for aid when necessary, shower gratitude to show thanks and know that You are a part of the Divine Family that loves and cares for you. A universal law is “ASK”! Angels will only intervene when you allow them to do so.
KYANITE: Kyanite is the stone of inner bridges. I find myself asking the question whilst looking at this card… “How do I bridge the gap between the physical life experience and my spiritual practice?” This is the card urging you to evaluate the practices you have learned and their adoption into your life. This is the understanding of the new energies and allowing them to ground, enabling you to be more present, more coherent and neither spinning away in a galaxy far far away with your feet a foot off the floor, nor looking at the ground and never looking up. Here we bring about the practice in your life of reflection and contemplation for the ways in which you bridge the spiritual and physical experience of 2013.
Many blessings to your year.

What is Crystal Therapy?
Starting a relationship with crystals broadens awareness internally and externally. Instead of taking from the crystal we join in union with a tangible physical energy outside ourself that draws so many similarities within.
To choose a crystal, I pose the question in two ways….
1. Which crystal do you need to be using for healing, self awareness and personal growth?
YouI may have something that you are working on in your personal journey, for example, patience, anger or a struggle with insomnia, and therefore you seek a crystal to aid you in that healing.
2. Which crystal innately calls to you without having a set intention?
Sometimes crystals call out to your individual spirit as they want to be joined with you. Sometimes it is not about what you want or what you think you need. The particular crystal may speak to your higher self or the child within. This can come as a feeling of KNOWING like a child KNOWS this toy MUST be theirs. This can also come as a DRAWING toward the crystal for esthetic reasons. Trust the inner voice and the inner feeling of which crystal belongs with you. Another situation that is quite familiar to me is when the crystal calls because it needs you more than the other way around. It may be to aid in its cleaning, or transport to another place for the Earth or another partner.
From the moment you join and share your space with a crystal, you create a beautiful space for growth and increasing your awareness and energetic space.
As we transition and change in our lives, we may find ourselves needing new crystals as their original purpose may be over. You can either pass on your crystal friend to a new partner or return it to the Earth with gratitude.
Crystals connect us to the Earth Mother. We walk on them beneath the surface everyday and share the similar nutrients and minerals within our body. It connect us to HER and innately within our own physical and energetic bodies. We do not need to choose whether or not we believe in them. They are physically in front of us in all shapes and sizes to be admired, to be cared for, just as your body is in need of the same love.
Happy Making new Crystal Friends.
The Power and Mystery of Menstruation: reclaiming our Femininity
By Lady Sammy
With the ascent of patriarchal ideas and ways of life leading to our current society, women and men have lost the connection to the Earth and the cycles of the moon. Before this began, the moon was used as a benchmark of time and as a guide to when the crops should be harvested. The moon was considered feminine as it contributed to the growth and reproduction that sustains all life on the Earth. This recognition led many to associate the Moon with Goddess energy, overseeing the Earth as the bringer of all life.
The moon is dark and mysterious and only shows its face when sunlight is reflected upon it. Darkness is the place where all things begin. Within the womb, the egg, and the Earth, darkness exists as the starting places of creation. Unfortunately our current age has created negative images of the dark associating it with witches, demons, and other negative thoughts. Night is also no longer night as we disguise it with artificial lights that reach deep into space. No wonder our Divine Feminine is lacking in our current state. Our Earth is crying to be heard. There is an urge now in these shifting times to resurface the recognition of the moon and offer attention to the Dark Goddess within all of us and to our connection to the Earth.
Even though the moon is much smaller than the Sun, it is much closer to us and is a vital factor in the Earths ability to support life. Most people are aware that the moon is the reason for the tides of the oceans we experience daily but unaware of the other elements it affects. Like the symbol of the five pointed star, the moon affects the four elements, Earth, Water, Fire and Air plus the divine spirit of creation, Us. It affects the Water through the pull on the ocean’s tides; the fire of the Earths molten core causing it to surge and recede; the changes in height of the body of air, the atmosphere that surrounds our planet, which contributes to the shifting weather patterns; and finally the movement of the Earths crust toward the moon. As children of this Earth and bodily comprised of almost all water, we too are affected emotionally, physically and spiritually by the power of the moon. We experience more injuries and emotions during full moons and less at New Moons. In karmic thought it is believed to be a great time to release karma during Full moons and manifest desires and goals during new moons because of the gravitation pull heightened when the moon is full. Females share the Goddess likeness in having the ability to create within our own wombs, and experience the lunar cycle through menses, our menstruation.
I didn’t realize until recently how few women realized how our bodies and emotions were connected and governed by the moon. What an awesome notion! We women are influenced by this huge celestial body and thus share with the Earth as Great Earth Mother who also heeds these cycles. Therefore if we left this Earth we would not experience a 28-day cycle. We have an awesome power within our womb, physically and emotionally, that many are unaware of because in this day and age this cycle has been hidden, caused embarrassment, viewed as inconvenient and manipulated with regulating drugs so that it would appear to not exist. During menstruation instead of honoring and resting our bodies and our daily routine, we blame our actions on our cycle of PMS and go about our life as normal all while there is blood leaking out of us! Without speaking of the endless causes of why this has happened I prefer to offer this text to speak of the privilege we have as women to have to this ability to bleed. We have a womb! A womb that can create, cultivate and sustain life for 9 or so months. We have a menstrual cycle, blessed by the cycle of the moon Goddess, every 28 days.
In ancient times, women took their moon time to rest, meditate, release the unwanted and honour their bodies, while celebrating womanhood. The men respected this time as an honouring of the female creative force. Women and Men both understood the importance of allotting this time of sacred space for women, as they were the carriers of future generations. Since we experience blood flow as a result of no impregnation, symbolically, the blood was an offering back into Mother Earth to be recycled and renewed for the next coming cycle. Because there were no outside influences, like electrical lighting, contraceptive pills, or processed unhealthy hormone filled food, the menstruation cycles of women within a tribe would correspond together with the dark side of the moon.
There is urgency now for women to join together and reclaim our Femininity, our gathering together in acknowledgement of our creative force within our wombs. The Earth is indeed feminine and acknowledging Her through Her female offspring is desired. We have the ability to aid in healing the Feminine energy lacking currently on this Earth plane. We can do so by honouring our bodies with rest, good food and allow the time of the month to come with ease and respect. WE can do so by joining with other women in community and circles for support, encouragement and advice as we march along this once forgotten path.
The power is within our wombs to manifest a new reality for females. It is not about getting those jobs that men have or fitting in to be equal where they sit. Instead we can carve new positions, a new Goddess seat for women and create unity, power and shared communication amongst all women that invokes and honours our Goddess likeness to Create, and Birth our dreams, our children, our futures and the future and health of the Great Earth Mother. I challenge with love every woman to look within the power of their belly and creative life force and spark joy, pride and gratitude for their unique ability to be in the cycle of the moon having an impact on this Earth.
