Archangel Zadkiel by Margaret Ann Lembo

Archangel Zadkiel by Margaret Ann Lembo

Archangel Zadkiel is the archangel to call on to help you find ease when you need to transform and transmute challenges.

Archangel Zadkiel helps you to amplify kindness and mercy. Archangel Zadkiel aids in sympathy and empathy.

This archangel can be your ally when you need to and want to have mercy on the people who try to trick or deceive you. It is beneficial to have compassion for those who have been unkind to you. It is empowering to have an unselfish concern for others, especially when they may not have acted with care or concern for you.

Negative feelings and memories of past negative situations can be hard to overcome. With Zadkiel as your ally, you can find a way to feel gratitude for these experiences and the opportunity to grow and evolve because of the challenges. Who do you want to forgive? Do you need to forgive yourself? With this angel on your side, you have the opportunity to transform and transmute the situation into one that is filled with compassion, gratitude, and love.

Focus on your heart center and enhance meditative practices using a few gemstones like amethyst to transform and transmute challenges, chrysoprase for comfort, malachite to observe patterns and habits, or rhodochrosite to find the silver lining in any situation. Inhale sweet marjoram or sage essential oil with the intention to clear away residual resentment that might be buried deep within your consciousness.

Invite Archangel Zadkiel to walk by your side so that I can feel, know, and understand the experience. Ask for guidance to be an instrument to serve humanity through sensitivity and compassion.

Affirm:
I forgive and forget past injustices. I release resentment. I open myself up to the healing energy. I am compassionate and kind. I attract thoughtful, loving people into my life. I focus on empathy and speak with kindness and compassion.

The Fragrant Garden and Memories of Memorial Days Past

Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing

The Fragrant Garden and Memories of Memorial Days Past

By Margaret Ann Lembo

“When I smell certain floral scents, I am immediately transported to my childhood garden. I am always grateful for the reminder, as my first and happiest memories are of time spent with my mother in that wonderful place.

We had a small front yard and backyard at our Brooklyn row house. In our neighborhood, trees lined the streets, and the backyards of the houses that backed up to our yard were a series of blooming gardens. Our garden was filled with many treasures—from pussy willows and forsythia to eggplants and tomatoes and from azaleas and crocus to iris, lily of the valley, and sweet pea. My mother and I talked to the plants, weeded the garden, and nourished the soil with coffee grounds and eggshells.

The garden experience traveled with us to our summer home at the beach in Breezy Point, New York. It didn’t occur to me until I was an adult that my mom—with me as her personal garden fairy—had actually grown an amazing garden in beach sand! Every year on Memorial Day weekend, we would leave Brooklyn to open the summerhouse and start the garden. On the way, we would pick up peat moss, cow manure, and starter plants. Once there, we would prepare the ground for the coming season. We would bury fish heads, kitchen cuttings from vegetables, and seaweed I had collected from the shoreline to nourish and nurture the plants. Little did I know, we were composting. It was just what we did, and I am so grateful that these gardening experiences taught me to connect with the energy of the plants at a young age and to understand its value today.

I was happy to have the tasks of weeding and watering. With my hose in hand, I would imagine the plants with fully mature flowers or vegetables. I would make believe I was pouring nutrients and good energy into the roots through the water from the hose. I’d imagine I was part of the book The Secret Garden, working with my imaginary friends to bring the garden to life. This book and the many years of growing up in the garden inspired me to follow my spiritual path as well as create my store and spiritual center, The Crystal Garden. The book The Secret Garden takes the reader on a journey in which faith restores health and flowers renew the spirit. I believe in the magic of the garden and nature—plants, animals, fairies, and the elemental energies—as gifts from the earth to remember our soul contracts and recover our body, mind, and spirit.”

~an excerpt from The Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing

Today I have a garden in my yard in what is essentially beach sand. Sunflowers and magnolias and roses are growing along with pineapple, peppers, gladiolas, tomatoes, papayas, figs, bananas, tropical ginger, and so much more. Take a little peek into my garden…

Compassion and Kindness with Intuition and Telepathy by Margaret Ann Lembo

Compassion and Kindness with Intuition and Telepathy

Compassion and Kindness with Intuition and Telepathy

by Margaret Ann Lembo

Are you able to tune into the energy of others? Awareness of the feelings and emotions of others is an intuitive gift that everyone possesses. We are all telepathic. Telepathy is communication that occurs through pathways other than the normal senses of seeing, speaking, and hearing. Through the use of mind to mind and heart to heart communication our feelings and thoughts are transmitted. Use your imagination and send a vision of what you are talking about. It helps others to feel related to and comforted.

Everyone has the inherent gift of telepathy. Telepathy is the ability to have mind-to-mind communication without speaking. In other words, you can send a thought to another person and they will receive it. Many people develop this skill after being friends for a time because they’re in sync with each other.

Tabular Quartz is ideal for communicating directly from your heart and mind to the heart and mind of someone you are speaking with through the use of mental images. “Tabbies” are good tools for speakers and teachers, as well as anyone whose work includes communications. With this stone in hand, you are better able to transmit the feelings associated with the words you are speaking to improve the communication between yourself and another person. When a person is heard and understood, it prevents emotional upset and distress.

Repeat this affirmation: When I speak, people listen and understand me. I communicate from my heart to the hearts of others. I visualize and send mental pictures as I express my ideas, visions, opinions, and matters of importance.
Connecting with others in an authentic and caring way is encouraging. Providing comfort through active listening brings blessings to others. With kindness and compassion, we can create a reality of love and kind-heartedness.

The Power of Flowers: Rebirth and Renewal by Margaret Ann Lembo

The Power of Flowers: Rebirth and Renewal
By Margaret Ann Lembo

For millennia, the plant and flower kingdom are our closest ally for a happy and healthy existence. Reawaken your connection with the vibrational benefits of flowers. It is beneficial to pay attention to their color and structure to the potential aromatic or medicinal uses.

As part of a mindfulness exercise, use plants and flowers as a tool for the focus to be truly present during your daily activities. Consider planting seeds and nurture their growth. Indoors or outdoors, develop a relationship with plants by putting your awareness on your heart and imagining the plant at its fruition and thriving. Use the same imagery to include yourself envisioning yourself happy, healthy, and thriving as well. Whatever we focus on and work toward with passion and determination must become a reality.

Plants and flowers are gifts for you and me – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Include using aromatherapy regularly to awaken, align with the Divine, calm your soul, ground your experience, and shift mind chatter into inner peace.

Take the time to meditate and focus on the center of your consciousness while in nature. Gift yourself with time in the sun and fresh air. Open to the realization that there is an underlying unity in all life. Allow your time with the plants and the flowers to reestablish the balance in your life. Find inner peace for your body, mind, and your soul.

A matching gemstone to use to remind you of your intention is Kambaba Jasper. Open your heart to loving yourself and others more fully and completely.

Affirm: The nourishing green energy of nature soothes my body. I nourish my soul, my mind, and my body.
Let the power of flowers bring you rebirth and renewal. Relax, restore, and awaken your body, mind, and spirit with these beautiful allies from the earth.

Perseverance and Faith by Margaret Ann Lembo

Masters, Mystics, Saints, & Margaret

Perseverance and Faith by Margaret Ann Lembo

Maewyn Succat is his real name. Saint Patrick’s early years included a period when he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He was an imprisoned shepherd on Mount Slemish in County Antrim which is the first known home of Saint Patrick.

Call on the energy of Saint Patrick when you need an extra charge of good energy that will appear as little miracles all the time. If Saint Patrick comes to your awareness, let it be a reminder of the power of prayer and that it is time to pray. And, it’s a sign that perseverance and faith are necessary today and always.

Saint Patrick followed messages and realizations he received in the dreamtime to escape from slavery. Let this saint be a reminder to pay attention to your intuition and believe yourself when you receive messages or guidance.

Use this saint’s vibe to uncover your own mission in life. Throughout Saint Patrick’s life, from being kidnapped into slavery to becoming a powerful Catholic missionary and eventually a bishop in Ireland, he maintained his focus to stay on course in alignment with the Divine plan. Call on this energy to help you during times when you need tenacity and single-mindedness in your life.

So, is it good fortune or is it really perseverance and faith?

Affirmation: With faith and prayer, my petitions are always answered. Perseverance is part of my nature. I open my ears to hear the messages from within and follow clues of guidance all around me.

Everything is Unfolding as it Should by Margaret Ann Lembo

Everything is Unfolding as it Should
By Margaret Ann Lembo

People are feeling stressed due to this Global Pandemic. Emotions are high. Maintain a sense of prayerfulness for every single person with whom you interact. If you notice someone lashing out, instead of judging them, send them love and empathy. Keep them in your prayers or good thoughts. Sending good energy for someone raises your vibration, too. It truly helps the people around you. Find a way to add laughter to daily life.

Laughter is contagious. Laughter is the best medicine. Research has shown that a more profound sense of happiness possesses lower inflammatory responses and higher antiviral responses. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, which promotes well-being.

Remember, everything is energy. Therefore, when we each choose to vibrate at the rate of love and compassionate words and actions are in the forefront, it truly benefits the planetary consciousness. Every thought creates reality. Choose your thoughts, the tone of your voice, and your actions consciously. Evolve into the state of prayerfulness for your well-being as well as the well-being of all life.

It appears that now more than ever, there is a call to awaken consciousness more entirely and to believe that you can create personal reality fully. Through self-observation, note the areas of life that need a shift, without judgment. Each day is an opportunity to do it better, become a better person, awaken situational awareness, and improve on all levels – mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Design your reality in such a way that inner peace and happiness is your experience. Observing oneself – behaviors, thoughts, words, and actions – allows the opportunity to notice how more kindness, compassion, and love expands and experienced. The magnitude of loving-kindness we each emanate improves your life’s experience as well as the life experiences of those with whom you interact.

Everything is unfolding as it should. Trust the process.

A Time of Introspection: Aspiring Toward Spiritual Fulfillment by Margaret Ann Lembo

Blog Thumbnail with Gemstone Guardians & Your Soul Purpose

A Time of Introspection: Aspiring Toward Spiritual Fulfillment by Margaret Ann Lembo

As a global community, it is time to go within, step away and seclude, and live a cloistered life for a while. The key to embracing the sequestered experience is recognizing that this is a temporary calling in nature but is necessary to quiet down long enough to have realizations essential for spiritual evolution. During this unusual time, remember that this is all temporary. Nothing is permanent. Use this time wisely, and allow loving kindness.

The purpose of the earthly experience is to have the opportunity to evolve and grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is likely an opportunity to heal physically and regroup. Just as certain religious sects cloister to practice living a kinder and more conscious life, it is time for self-reflection without being called into a cloistered religious order.

During this time, you have a doorway of opportunity to focus on self-realization—the fulfillment of your potential. Give yourself permission to isolate and go within, almost as if in a convent or monastery. The challenge is to do this while maintaining only essential activities required for basic survival needs. We aren’t being asked to step inside a cave but rather isolate a bit to give our consciousness the time and space to think and contemplate.

Accentuate innate knowledge to live a life of purpose. You have the power to realize your unlimited potential. Remember a sacred agreement with the Divine that clearly outlines our Soul’s Purpose and unique life path.

Before you were born on this planet, you knew

  • what you intended to do,
  • what life challenges you would encounter,
  • what lessons you would learn,
  • what issues would be healed, and
  • how you would make a lasting contribution toward harmony and peace.

It is a perfect time to go within and allow a shift to happen that realigns your consciousness long enough to realize your soul purpose and the many reasons you came to Earth.

How The Crystal Garden is Coping Fulfilling Orders Virtually and Online – A News Brief

How The Crystal Garden is Coping Fulfilling Orders Virtually and Online – A News Brief

Thanks to the way the store grew organically over the years, (established 1988), Margaret Ann Lembo and her amazing well-versed staff were, luckily, in good shape for the pandemic. Although sales are significantly lower than when in-store shopping was an option, the online and virtual shoppers have kept The Crystal Garden alive.

In 2005, Lembo, an evolutionary aromatherapist, developed the Wholesale Division which sells The Crystal Garden Brand Aromatherapy. Her client base consists of brick-and-mortar conscious living stores, whole body markets, spas, chiropractors, and metaphysical stores and boutiques worldwide.

“I feel really fortunate,” she continued. “We had the right business model for the moment.”

The store closed to in-person browsing in March with Lembo noting that she has a “high percentage of senior staff” including herself. She and her team, The Crystal Garden Angels, found that their “regular customers just don’t care and appreciate her mindfulness to keep everyone safe while still providing service.”

The only people wanting to come into the store are tourists or people with time to kill while vacationing or wintering in Florida. Regular customers are still buying online or over the phone or during the Shop The Crystal Garden from Home Shows on Facebook Tuesdays at 6 PM ET https://www.facebook.com/TheCrystalGarden or on Instagram IGTV @thecrystalgardenstore on Thursdays at 12 noon ET.

Customers are enjoying concierge service and she said, “We are getting to know our customers more personally and uplift their spirits during this Global Pandemic when we are being called to isolate and go within.” The shows provide comic relief – they laugh a lot and often – while creating community as a break from the solitude that is necessary at this time.

Lembo has also been providing Free Zoom events that are often simulcast on Facebook on her Author Page https://www.facebook.com/MargaretAnnLemboPage

Being closed to browsing also gave the team a chance to remodel parts of the store – the incense room and the crystal room – and develop the studio for Shopping Shows and Free Zoom Event in the Angel Room which previously was primarily used as the Event Room for classes and workshops. They also took the opportunity to do reorganize the store in a way that makes it easier to pick the merchandise that is being purchased online.

All of the staff of The Crystal Garden are in a state of gratitude and are dedicated to providing safe and good service coupled with loving-kindness.

The Crystal Garden is located on TheCrystalGarden.com with a physical location (closed to the public) still at 2610 North Federal Highway, Boynton Beach, FL 33435. Call1-877-444-5099 email them at orders@thecrystalgarden.com for the fastest response.

A Life of Passion and Purpose

Blog Thumbnail with Gemstone Guardians & Your Soul Purpose

A Life of Passion and Purpose
By Margaret Ann Lembo

You have the power to realize your unlimited potential. Give yourself permission to reveal your unique life path or career. You choose your life path. Have you chosen it? If not, choose something. Start where you are. You always have the option to change your path or allow it to unfold and branch out in various directions.

Expand your horizons and be open to opportunities and new doors that open. Have the courage to practice your life’s work. Remember, practice your work. Practicing your work allows you the freedom to improve, change, expand, and grow. Maintain an intention to be a little better at living life than you were the day before.

How can you make a lasting contribution toward harmony and peace? How will you make this a better world for all in large or small ways? Choose to live this lifetime in a way that you can fulfill that purpose. You can experience a life of passion and purpose.

Give yourself permission to live in ease and comfort while also giving you the ability to help and share with others through employment, philanthropy, or other manners of support. When you are practicing your life’s work in alignment with your Soul’s Purpose, work doesn’t feel like work. Find pleasure in your work and be driven by the life you lead. In this way, you are fulfilling the agreement you made before you came to Earth. When work is fun, financial success comes easier. You have the ability to make plenty of money with plenty to share. When you approach the work you do with the mindset of helping others succeed, your life is a success!

Activate your creative mind. Allow your inner excitement to be stimulated. You can experience a life of passion and purpose, filled with joy, happiness, and fulfillment. Spiritual focus is key to this experience as you allow inspired thought to flow through you. Give yourself permission to be a creative genius.
