Crystal Herbalism – The Divine Feminine 

Delicate yet Strong. Soft yet Fierce. Peaceful yet Loud. Divine yet Unholy. 

her story seeps through history
like fresh ink, 
wet and shadowy,
waiting along the edges of torn pages 
for our fingertips to meet.
she lingers,
a shadow of cosmos reflecting
the universe back to me.
her soul overflows like liquid poetry,
cupping the verses with tired hands, 
seeking answers that slip between,
gliding down to kiss the earth, 
like sand, 
her story blends into the rest. 
lost,
till the waves sweep in, 
resurfacing the truth once again.

Self-Care Is Courageous 

The core of self-care is the courage to put yourself first. To thrive, create, and lead, you need to be able to see your wellbeing as the foundation to your work. No longer is self-care considered a luxury or selfish, rather a necessity to your success. Below you will find some tips to integrating mindfulness into your daily routine:

Befriend your morning. Establishing a morning ritual is a great way to ignite your energy and ground your thoughts before the day begins. Whether it’s fitness, a balanced meal, or mediation, doing something that brings you joy is a perfect way to ignite your energy, ground your thoughts, and reconnect with your intentions.

Recharge yourself. Staying attuned your energy levels is important because you can take note of when you need to rest. Taking breaks throughout your day is a great way to restore yourself, a simple 5-10-minute break every hour to stretch, walk, or make a cup of tea, can shift your perspective and empower productivity.

Set a daily intention. You have a power within you to cultivate, heal, access, and release.  Start each day with an honesty and focused mindset, ex: How can I bring more sacredness into my life today? Your actions have a direct connect with your energy field, so make decisions that align with the deep listening point within you, your gut.

Your breath is your magic. Every time you inhale and exhale you create more space within yourself. You develop an loving awareness that is rooted in the ebb and flow of your breathing. When you take a deep breath, you are reclaiming your divine sovereignty.

Crystal Herbalism – Venus Retrograde 

Hues of pastel pink illuminate the soul as Venus enters
retrograde. This feminine energy sparks a wildness with us, a vibrant
expression of compassion.
 The last time this feminine planet retrograded was
last spring and this new cycle will last till November 16th

This
cosmic transition welcomes reflection within the heart space, giving us the
time to review our relationships, including the intimate one with yourself. She blankets us in rosy starlight,
asking us “Are You Happy?”

Venus is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, and abundance,
she is the Roman version of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Her planet is going to
get closer to the horizon and like Persephone, she then disappears into the underworld.
It is during this time of astrological darkness that we will be pushed to acknowledge
unresolved issues. Venus will also be ruling both the new moon and the full moon
this cycle, bringing self-worth into the spotlight.

Crystal: During this retrograde have rose quartz become your companion. This crystal will be the light you need as you wade though moments of darkness in your reflections. Rose quartz is a goddess stone providing you with protection, divine wisdom, and loving nourishment.

Essential Oils to work with: Rose, Geranium, and Plumeria. These floral scents will activate your heart chakra. 

Retrograde Mantra: My Greatest Strength Is Love.

realm of the goddess. Discover the legend and magic behind your

Illuminated Being Mandala

Citrine is a crystal that embodies solar energy. Rooting deep into courage, manifestation, and prosperity. Shining light onto the center of the body, our inner fire is comforted by the golden hues of Citrine. Like a dreamy summer, this mini mandala honors the earth’s gentle shifting into autumn. Crowning us in the watery sunlight of the divine, we bow to the reign of goddess. 

Butterflies are beacons of transformation, love and manifestation. They remind us to accept change, keep our heart and mind open to the opportunities that rise. They are also connectors to the faerie realm, magical beings that lead us into the unseen world. 

Rose Quartz: heart centered, radical love, goddess, healing. This crystal is a great way to comfort the emotional body. It also brings light into the dark spaces of our energy field and mind. A creation of enlightenment, divinity, and trust. Like a rose it embodies the energy of sacred and honest love.
