Weekly Tarot Story – Saturday

Good morning everyone. We are at the endof this weeks Tarot Story. I said it earlier this week and I will again. It’s been quite a week; it tested us on several levels and we made it through. It’s important to recognize the lesson this weeks story has taught us and that is we are stronger and more capable that we think we are. When we realize that and embrace that inner power which is connected to the Divine, there isn’t anything that can stop us. Not our fear, not lack of clarity, not other peoples opinions of us or our inability to speak our truth, because we are strong, powerful and unstoppable!

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Friday

Good morning it’s Friday and our card for the day is guiding us to be bold and take what is ours and don’t let it go again. Whatever opportunity presents itself today chances are it wil be one we let get by us once before. Whether it’s a relationship, a job, a dream or a goal. If the chance comes and it is still something that’s important, take it, grab it and don’t let go!!

Of course there will be some scary parts, when any kind of commitment is involved, scary comes along as a sidekick. Don’t let that prevent or stop a dream from coming true. Own it, imagine it already a reality. Then get going and make it happen.   

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Wednesday

Good morning we’re at the midweek point and we might have a problem with someone today that perhaps has been building for a while. Our card is here to remind us we are not what other people think of us. People can be pretty judgmental and hateful. Sometimes on purpose without even bothering to get to know us first. They spread rumors and make us look bad in front of others. It can be damaging to our confidence and self esteem leaving us feeling like a piece of garbage.  

Stay strong and remember we decide how we want to be treated. Nobody can make us feel bad or less than without first giving them permission. What people think or say about us says way more about them than it ever will about us.      

The big thing is how we choose to handle the situation. We can either react or respond. Personally responding is a better choice. We react to bad or hurtful situations out of anger, fear or insecurity. When we respond we’ve given ourselves time to think about how to handle the issue.  

Never forget we are all a beautiful, amazing treasure, and deserve to be treated like it.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Tuesday

Good morning everyone, today’s card is here to remind us we’re not alone and we certainly don’t have to struggle to do everything by ourselves. Pride and closed minds can inflate egos so much so that we would never admit to needing help much less accept any being offered. At the same time a closed mouth will never be fed with clenched fists stuffed into pockets. Set aside the pride and ego and take look at what is being offered. We might be surprised to find someone has the perspective and clarity about our issue we haven’t been able to see.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Monday

Good morning today’s card talks about perspective. It can be easy to fall into a pattern of seeing the world through rose colored glasses or with blinders on especially if we’re invested in a belief about something. With the level of information and opinions being thrown at us everyday it’s not suprising that we might not want to see the truth of a situation or to believe it.

Yesterdays card is encouraging us to open up and release our hold on something valuable to us, and since this came up for the collective today we may have a need for a different, higher perspective. If we want to start new project, pick up one we set aside in the past or something entirely different. We’re going to really need all the facts available. We can’t rely on what we think we know or want to believe. Do some research or ask someone we trust for an opinion. What we need most is clarity on whatever we’re dealing with if we’re going to make a good decision about moving forward.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Thursday

Good morning everyone, the card that came for us is Willing Release.  The idea of release says so much. We as humans have a need to control our piece of reality. We want what we want and when we want it. That is not how it works though is it?

The divine, by whatever name you choose to use is telling us to release our desire to control. Give the divine our wants, needs and fears then trust all will be well in the perfect time. This is where faith and patience come in. We must allow time for our prayers to manifest. Trust that the “when” is going be perfect. In the mean time we can do whatever we can now, leave the rest to the Divine and wait for the blessings. 

Have a blessed day. Terry

Labradorite in the Morning Light

It’s been approximately seven months since I posted on my blog. What I thought would be a short break turned into a long one. I am excited to be back. I will have some familiar posts to share and some new ones I hope you’ll enjoy and they’re all focused on helping people heal body mind and spirit.

My last crystal post here on WordPress was August 1st of last year and was about Trapiche Amethyst. At that point I had done 130 weekly posts over the course of two years discussing the properties have to offer for spiritual growth and healing.

I recently acquired several new crystals and this inspired me to begin this series anew. I have been updating my past articles. Several of them are posted on my Facebook page, I will post them here too in time. So here we go J let’s talk about today’s crystal subject, Labradorite.

The original post for this crystal went up back on August 8, 2017. Since that post I’ve discovered more about this, my favorite crystal, and although I’m not a geologist, I will share what I’ve learned with you.

Labradorite belongs to a family of approximately 20 crystals call the Feldspars. One of the things that make this group of crystals amazing is their color. When raw and unpolished they look like most other rocks, but when they’ve been cut and polished they’re uniqueness displays itself in beautiful layers of flashing color. For Labradorite it’s called Labradorescence.    

From what I was able to discover in my research this crystal was first found sometime around 1770 by a group of missionaries doing an archeological dig in the Labrador region of Canada near the town of Nain and possibly on St. Paul Island. A few of the other locations Labradorite can be found are in Finland, France, Mexico, the US and Norway. The energy of the crystal resonates with the Throat and Third Eye Chakras and on the Mohs scale of hardness it is a 6 – 6.5.

Another type of Labradorite was supposedly found in Finland during the 1940’s called Spectrolite. What is special about this is it’s said to flash the entire color spectrum. I personally would love to see this! My ultimate goal is to own a piece of all the Feldspars this planet has. ❤

The Inuit people of Canada believed Labradorite was the Aurora Borealis that had been frozen and fell to earth; this made it a connection to the sky and unseen realms. They called it the Fire Stone and used it several ways. The Inuit People were probably the first to use it decoratively and for jewelry. They also believed it had medicinal ability so they would grind it into a powder for that purpose. The main use for Labradorite though was spiritual. They believed it was able to bring clarity to one’s life that allowed them to see a problem before they became problems.

This isn’t too far off to be believed. As a spiritual stone Labradorite is a powerful crystal of change. It’s known as the crystal of awakening and transformation. If you want your life to change in big ways it’s a crystal you might want to work with. Here are some of the spiritual and healing qualities of this beautiful crystal.

  • It increases intuition and psychic ability.
  • Helps improve concentration.
  • Helps recall past lives so karma can be cleared.
  • Shields you from negativity.
  • It is said to balance the hormones in the body.
  • It is said to ease arthritis.
  • Makes a wonderful pendulum.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Labradorite. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing the healing qualities of this stone is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can improve your life, but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.

Until Next Time…
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

Taking a Break

Hello everyone. I am so sorry there is no Tarot post today. WordPress is being a dork and won’t let me do what I need to do. Given that it is several hours late, I’m giving up trying to get it posted and the rest of the week scheduled.

This comes at at a synchronistic time for me as I have been re-evaluating what my priorities are. I’m not sure this blog is one of those priorities anymore. I believe it’s time for a new perspective, something new. Maybe restructure the focus of my blog altogether.

Have a good day and a blessed week.

Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

The Weekly Tarot Story

Good morning everyone. The final Marigold Morning Affirmation card, I Am Enough, couldn’t be a better way to round out the week. Every card we’ve had has been leading us to this realization.

It can be a very tough one when everytime we turn on the television, see a movie or open a magazine we are bombarded with images of perfection. Even in our own lives we may know people who seem to have everything under control. They’re beautiful, have a perfect successful job a perfect spouse and family. Then we see ourselves and think we can’t even begin to compare. But that’s the problem, isn’t it? We judge our worth against someone else’s life and forget none of us is perfect or even has to be. Being perfectly imperfect is alright.

All we have to do is try our best to let go of what doesn’t serve our highest good. Remember we can achieve our goals, that good things can and do always happen for us and that we are absolutely brilliant, beautiful and kind. No matter what our background, size, shape, color or spiritual beliefs, each of us is perfectly imperfect and that is enough.

Let’s tell ourselves that daily. Better yet multiple times a day. I Am Enough!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Marigold Mornings Affirmation cards as much as I have this week. I am so happy I bought this gorgeous, intuitive deck. If you are interested in buying a set for yourself you can contact Angela, the creator, on Instagram @marigolddarling or on her website at marigolddarling.com

Have a beautiful day! blessed Be ❤ Sharon
