Gemstones and the Tarot by Margaret Ann Lembo

Gemstones and the Tarot by Margaret Ann Lembo

Using crystals and gemstones for readings came to my awareness after years of assisting customers pick gemstones in my own retail store in Florida, The Crystal Garden. Customers often want to know what stone will bring them love, or which crystal will clear negativity from their lives. I recommend that they go stand before the jewelry counter or the display of tumbled stones and encourage them to allow their eyes to go to what is drawing their attention.

The Gemstone Oracle

Add the element of the Gemstone Oracle in your tarot card sessions. To start the session, before you lay your cards, have the client pick gemstones from a pile of tumbled stones like the photo pictured here. After the client chooses the stones they are attracted to, tell them a bit about the qualities of those stones and why they may have been attracted to the stones. The size, shape, and color give you, the reader, clues as to why they chose those gems. Offer them a book about stones so they can read further about what they have chosen. For example, my book, The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones, look up more about the chosen crystals or recommend the client reads more. The book provides the mental, spiritual, emotional and physical uses of the stone as well as divination or Divine Guidance. The astonishment regarding the accuracy of what each stone represents for them in their life truly amazes client after client.

Develop your intuition

For you as the tarot card reader, my recommendation of gemstones to use for developing and enhancing intuition are amethyst, apophyllite, clear quartz, kyanite, lapis lazuli, and selenite. All of these gems amplify your ability to see the unseen, know the unknown, and hear what is not being said. With clear intention on your part, use these stones with the goal to focus on trusting your inner voice as well as the many signs and symbols available to you through your dreams and synchronistic life situations.

What’s your favorite tarot card?

I have some favorites! Mine are the Empress, the Lovers, and the Ten of Cups. The Empress card is symbolic of the empowered female as well as the feminine entrepreneur. The Lovers is one that denotes a loving relationship or a strong partnership, and the Ten of Cups is a celebration of balanced emotions and the vibe of happily ever after. All the pink and green gemstones are aligned with all three of these tarot cards. Let’s say emerald for the Empress, Ruby for the Lovers, and Rose Quartz for the Ten of Cups.

Emerald affirmation: I am grateful for my prosperity. I am healthy, whole, and complete. I am successful in all of my pursuits. My actions have beneficial results for everyone.

Ruby affirmation: Vital life force flows vibrantly through me. I am strong and health. I am grateful for my energetic passion.

Rose Quartz affirmation: My heart is open to giving and receiving love. I transform the world around me through focusing my energy and intentions on Divine love.

Challenging cards in the tarot deck

There are a few cards that can represent challenges. Remember, it doesn’t mean there is a disaster on the horizon, but perhaps trials and tribulations that offer growth and experience. The Tower is a card that sometimes indicates a major change and disruption in the status quo. During times of change and potential upheaval, use calcite to assist you through the transitionary period. Affirmations are helpful to maintain awareness and intention.

With an optical calcite say this affirmation: I see life clearly now. All obstacles have fallen away. Green or pink calcite are helpful when you are experiencing a change of heart.

Blue calcite helps you when you realize you need help with communication and the ability to understand others. Use this affirmation: I speak with love and kindness. I communicate softly regardless of what I need to express.

Green or pink calcite are helpful when you are experiencing a change of heart. Use this affirmation to open your ability to accept change: I remain grounded and focused even when the world around me changes.
Orange calcite is optimal for all types of change and to really help you recognize that all change leads to better life situations. Use this affirmation: I embrace change. I create my own reality.

Blessings and Good Fortune: Attract Abundance, Health, and Happiness

Blessings and Good Fortune: Attract abundance, health, and happiness

By Margaret Ann Lembo

When it comes to luck, it’s always up to you and your mindset to attract favorable circumstances. Ask yourself, ‘In what ways am I lucky? Where in my life do I feel unlucky? What is the source of all the happiness, luck, and favorable outcomes I’ve experienced?

You can shift your mindset so you can believe that you are always blessed with favorable outcomes and that you can always have great luck! Luck appears to come by chance, but in truth, it is a state of mind. When you believe you can have success, prosperity, good health, along with a wonderful family and good friends—things that make you feel lucky—you invite these things to manifest in your life. Having good fortune is your decision.

Amplify your intentions and maintain mindfulness on a life filled with goodness and blessings using amethyst, copper, carnelian, citrine, and jade, to name a few gems. Use the amethyst to attract good thoughts, pleasant dreams, and transformational experiences that lead you to blessings and good fortune. Keep copper nearby with the intention to be a conduit of good luck for those around you. Allow the carnelian to motivate you to take the action required to manifest a life filled with all that is good. Hold onto some citrine to assist you when you need some help to look at life optimistically as you consciously create your reality filled with blessings. Keep jade in your pocket or on your desk as a reminder that you have a life filled with blessings, good health, great wealth, and happiness.

Send off a petition and invite the Angel of Good Fortune to light your path. Send off a request something like this:

Oh, Angel of Good Fortune! Please help me attract blessings, abundance, prosperity, great health, and happiness into my life. Inspire me to be fortunate enough to know how to create my own luck. In addition to random chance, show me ways to take action to create favorable outcomes and good fortune. Let me manifest my dreams to bring blessings into my own life and into the lives of others. Help me to have plenty of all that is good so that I can share that good fortune with my friends, family, and the community. Thank you!

Use some positive thoughts to replace thoughts that are no longer for your highest good. Here are a few affirmations to include in your daily thoughts:

I am so incredibly lucky! My life is replete with blessings. The energies of abundance and prosperity flow continuously in my life. I am grateful for all that I have. I am safe and secure because luck is on my side. I am blessed with good luck while traveling. My heart is open and I have good fortune when it comes to loving relationships. My creative mind finds ways to generate my own good luck.

May your days be filled with blessings and love and may the angels light your path.

Crystal Grids for Healthy Boundaries and Protection

Crystal Grids for Healthy Boundaries and Protection

By Margaret Ann Lembo

“Everyone wants to feel safe and secure. The gemstones recommended in this section are used with the intention to establish the vibration of safety, protection and well-being. The tiger’s eye and black tourmaline indicated in this section are the stones to deflect negative vibes while the amethyst will transform and transmute challenging situations. Amber keeps the peace and amplifies the established boundaries needed to maintain safety.

  • AmethystAmethyst and its purple coloring are beneficial in the process of transforming and transmuting negative situations. To transform something, you must make a dramatic change in its form or atmosphere. Similarly, to transmute, you must alter or convert something into a different state.
  • AmberAmber is an organic tree resin that has hardened over 30 million years. With conscious intention, amber gives you the courage to establish healthy boundaries in your relationships in all areas of your life. This fossilized resin helps you to clear out the unwanted energies from energy-sucking acquaintances, friends, colleagues, and family members. Put on an amber bracelet or other type of jewelry to create a “grid” on your body on days when you feel like to you need a bit more space between you and other people. Establish clear boundaries by surrounding yourself in a protective shield that will deflect any negative energy that comes your way.
  • Black tourmaline and tourmalinated quartz—Use black tourmaline or tourmalinated quartz with intention to automatically remove unhealthy cords of attachment, or better yet to intend that the cords can’t even attach or touch you in any way in the first place. Tourmalinated quartz is clear quartz with rods of black tourmaline running through it. The clear quartz amplifies the power of the black tourmaline.
  • tiger’s eye and Tiger Iron—There are four varieties of “tiger” stones in this category. The first three varieties are tiger’s eye, which naturally occurs in gold, blue, and red. Tiger’s eye is a quartz (silicon dioxide) chatoyant pseudo morph of a variety of asbestos called crocidolite. It can occur naturally, sometimes with a combination of blue and varying degrees of brown and yellow. The golden-brown color of gold tiger’s eye is caused by iron oxides that form during the decaying process. In some cases, the blue variety is dyed blue. The red in naturally occurring red tiger’s eye is caused by similar iron oxides to that found in the gold variety and further metamorphic activity cause the iron to turn to hematite, which imparts the reddish color. (Red tiger’s eye is sometimes dyed.) The final variety in this category is tiger iron, which is a rock composed ofvarying layers of hematite, tiger’s eye, and jasper. The knowledge of the geological ingredients in tiger’s eye and tiger iron often shed light on working with the gemstone. The chatoyant, (an optical reflectance) nature of this stone deflects or pushes away potentially negative energy. Unwanted energy can be redirected or removed with clear intention with any four of these “tiger” rocks in hand. Each of the four “tiger” stones provides a specific benefit when used with intention. Tiger iron promotes courage by feeding your mind with thoughts that encourage high self-esteem. It sparks the imagination to help you think of or believe in the seemingly impossible. Red tiger’s eye amplifies your business acumen and triggers your inner entrepreneur, making it a perfect stone to keep on your desk. Use this stone to help you read between the lines and to be more open to perceiving the bigger picture. Gold tiger’s eye isa good companion when you are trying to remain grounded and focused on your personal goals. Blue tiger’s eye can be used to help deepen your understanding of difficult situations and people, which promotes emotional balance. When you use this stone to gain mental clarity, you will also find that emotional balance is restored as you sort out your feelings and gain perspective.

Crystal Grids for Peaceful Interactions

Crystal Grids for Peaceful Interactions

“Whether you are setting this grid in your home, office, or backyard, the intention to establish with these gems is peaceful, harmonious, and calm vibrations. The hematite stones will assist in grounding the remaining stones in this grid to establish a strong foundation.

  • CelestiteCelestite of either the cluster or tumbled variety is excellent to focus on during challenging or upsetting conversations. The pastel-blue color of this gemstone brings calm and peaceful conversations when used with that intent. Use celestite to call on the angelic realm to help you find the right words during intense conversations. Celestite can help you to be very present and an active listener so you really hear what is being said.
  • Clear quartz cluster—A quartz cluster is a group of clear quartz points growing on the same matrix or held together as a group of points on a shared foundation. Quartz clusters, including amethyst, citrine, and smoky quartz, are good for establishing a solid, shared foundation on which to build a harmonious community. Such clusters are beneficial for communication and the true understanding of others in a group setting.
  • Hematite—This shiny metallic stone works wonders in shifting negative feelings by calming and relaxing you. It is a grounding stone that helps you focus on that which is important. It is also a perfect stone to help quiet the mind and to reach a nothingness state of consciousness, as the majority of the people often experience frequent, incessant mental chatter. This stone is beneficial to relax the physical body and calm the mind to enable a quiet time for contemplation and connection with the earth.
  • Lapis lazuli—This rock is composed of several minerals, including hauynite, sodalite, noselite, lazurite, calcite, and pyrite. The hauynite causes the blue color, while the calcite is responsible for the white inclusions. The deep blue vibration of lapis lazuli calms feelings of frustration, agitation, and anger. With this stone in hand, you can find ways to deal with the emotional turmoil resulting from physical, mental, or emotional abuse so you can heal and find inner peace. The vibration of this deep blue color offers a sense of protection and helps to rid you or your surroundings of anger and rage.

Predict Your Own Future: Create Your Reality

Predict Your Own Future: Create Your Reality
By Margaret Ann Lembo

The power of prediction lies within you. Cast the elements of your future by maintaining a clear focus on what you want to happen. The word prediction breaks down as follows: pre- means ‘before’ and -diction has to do with talking. Make a statement about your personal world and your personal future potential realities. It’s not necessary to declare this statement to anyone other than yourself.

Practice contemplative thought and visualization. Imagination is the key to success in whatever endeavor you foresee yourself implementing. Therefore, imagine your life as if it has already unfolded in the manner in which you desire. The next steps are important though. The next steps are to take steps – to take action and piece together each part of the potential future reality one step at a time. Write out all the components of what is needed for your predict. The forecast for success is bright and you have the unlimited potential to create your world.

Using a gemstone and an essential oil can help you to design your reality with matching positive affirmations.

Citrine helps improve self-confidence. Use this gem to believe in yourself and gain clarity on intentions and how they build the future. Hold citrine in hand and imagine reality unfolding in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Practice visualizing your life as if it has already happened and you are looking back at a time when you first thought of the new existence. Inhale petitgrain essential oil and let this aromatic oil shine light on mental obstacles. Use your awakened awareness to activate creative processes to support mental and physical activity. Remember, the power lies within you.

Affirm: I am courageous and bravely bring my ideas into actuality. My imagination is the key to my success. I envision my future and joyfully participate as it unfolds.

Aromatherapy and Gemstones for Mindfulness and more

Aromatherapy and Gemstones for Mindfulness and more
By Margaret Ann Lembo

Aromatherapy isn’t just for smelling! Essential oils are powerful allies – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. They contain potent chemical components and have the ability to deter a wide range of bacterial, fungal, viral, and/or other disease-causing microorganisms. Aromatherapy is effective on an energetic level to restore balance. Add a gemstone to help you maintain mindfulness and match your intentions with the aroma. Gemstones and crystals are allies to help you with mindfulness.

Here is a peek into the vibrational level of four essential oils and some gems opening to help you step beyond the ordinary.

Eucalyptus’ medicinal scent is penetrating, peppery, and powerful. With lapiz lazuli or sodalite in hand, inhale eucalyptus and breathe deeply to calm you while you release unhealthy attachments. The deep blue color of these two gems help you to see, sense, feel, and know the truth in any matter. Lapis lazuli opens the third eye and the intuitive senses when used with conscious intent. This is a good stone to help you remember your dreams and promote clarity during dreamtime. Lapis lazuli and sodalite along with other dark blue gemstones improve your concentration and focus and can be used during test-taking to align you with the higher knowledge that is accessible to all.

 

Frankincense brings wisdom and connection with inner peace and calm. Its respiratory gifts open the breathing passages making it a perfect tool for meditation. It helps us to remember that all things are possible. It teams with apophyllite to aid in grasping the connection to the divine. Apophyllite helps you access the Akashic Records. Use it during Reiki sessions to help you stay focused on allowing the Universal Life Force to flow through you. This sparkling gem brings higher levels of clarity to meditation experiences.

Lavender offers sweet transformation. Attraction to this scent signals a time to comfort yourself as you take it into your own hands to do what it takes to make your life happy. The list of therapeutic properties is quite long! Pair lavender’s scent with pink calcite to amplify feelings of safety and comfort. Pink calcite activates loving thoughts. It transforms less ideal mental musings into thoughts of self-love, thereby increasing your ability to love, and receive love from, others. Hold this stone when you are concentrating on thinking positive and uplifting thoughts about yourself and others.

Patchouli is perfect to attract both love and money. Inhale patchouli to help bring focus and promote the action necessary to amplify prosperity and goodwill toward all. Patchouli is a stabilizer and encourages grounded action. Gemstones like green moss agate or Kambamba jasper are beneficial to help you release toxic thoughts and replace them with good thoughts that naturally attract benefic energy. Green moss agate, with its moss-like pattern, helps you to remember to ground yourself. Use Green moss agate when you are experiencing mental fatigue. This stone helps you replenish your mental focus. Use Kambamba to improve your ability to give love and receive love. Its green energy opens your heart to loving yourself and others more fully and completely. It is also a good stone to keep nearby during regression therapy. The stone contains stromatolites, which are among the oldest fossils on earth considered to be over 3 billion years old, which provides it with the energy to help dislodge any stored information that is causing a repetitive pattern in your emotional consciousness.

Enjoy the benefits of pairing gemstones with essential oils to increase well-being and inner peace in your life. Maintain a sense of gratitude in all that you do and you will be blessed in all areas of your life.

Crystal Grids for Good Communication

Crystal Grids for Good Communication

“It is important to listen well and understand others as well as to be heard and understood. These blue gems interact well with each other to amplify the intention of good communication which includes listening and expressing oneself with ease.

  • Amazonite—This stone helps you graciously speak up for yourself and reminds you to listen to what others have to say.This helps all parties avoid making inaccurate assumptions that might lead to hurt feelings. With this stone in your grid, you are better able to discern the truth and set boundaries with those around you who are not coming from a place of genuineness and integrity. When your words come from a loving and compassionate place, they have the power to heal or improve a situation.
  • Angelite—Communication is a two-way process of sending and receiving, so employ this stone when you need to be a better listener. Use it to sort out your thoughts before you speak. Ask God and the angels for understanding and calming energy to allow for true communication, which includes active listening as well as speaking.
  • Blue lace agate—This stone improves your ability to communicate with others and speak your truth. Use it in your grid when you want to be heard and truly understood. This stone helps you to listen more closely when others speak and to really hear and understand what they are trying to express. It also helps you develop the ability to read between the lines. Blue lace agate increases your ability to stay calm and peaceful in times of stress and turmoil, and it aids you in appropriately communicating your emotions and feelings. It’s also a good stone to have when you want to have good timing.”

Crystal Grids on the Desk and in the Office

Crystal Grids on the Desk and in the Office

“The choices for placement of stones on your desk are unlimited. There is no need to make geometric formations with the crystals placed on a desk, though you can if you wish, of course. Simply place gemstones within your line of sight and your reach so you can gaze at the stone or pick it up easily. Again, you can create a crystal grid for your desk and/or office that suits exactly the type of energy you want to invite into your work life.

What’s on My Desk? What’s on Your Desk?
Keeping crystals and gemstones close by while you work is a powerful way to bring in all types of positive energy, like extra focus, high motivation, deep intuition, unleashed creativity, and so on. My writing desk is always covered by a variety of gemstones, which I might change from time to time depending on what sort of energy I want to invite into my workspace. I place all the stones within my line of vision in a row in front of my monitors. You may want to create a special grid with the stones you place on your desk or just line them up like I do. Here’s what you’ll find on my desk as I write this, and what these same stones might do for you in your workspace:

Carnelian—This beautiful tumbled piece of carnelian is a constant reminder to me to take action and give birth to the many ideas and inspirational products that flow through my consciousness. I consider this particular piece my writing companion. Sometimes it’s just in my peripheral vision reminding me to maintain forward momentum with a manuscript or article. Other times, it’s a motivator to finalize something.

Clear quartz tabular point—A tabular point is flat and narrow on one termination and the other point is rounder and wider, making this piece of quartz a bit unusual looking. The flat portion on one side of the point has triangular markings, creating a crystalline castle–type appearance. I gaze at this stone when I’m contemplating what I’ll be writing next or when I’m happily waiting for a deeper understanding of something so that I can put it in writing.

Elestial (record keeper) quartz—I keep two elestial smoky quartz crystals on my desk to keep me in communication with the angelic realm. One is shaped like a scepter point with cathedral-like turret formations. The record keeper markings (which look like a series of fine triangular etchings, but are completely natural) are predominant on both of them. Legend has it that these geometric treasures (which hold records of the past, present, and potential future realities) were brought to earth by the heavenly realm through the ethers, which is why this skeletal-like quartz often looks singed.

Sodalite—I keep three pieces of this stone on my desk. Two are large tumbled stones, and the other is an extraordinary heart-shaped piece. I focus on this trio when I need to calm myself and slow down. If I feel agitated about something, especially if it involves a business matter that I’m discussing on the phone, I either hold them or gaze at them to ground myself and regain my sense of calm. Also, the deep blue of this stone aligns me with the energy of inspired thinking while I write.

Kunzite—Three pieces of kunzite have their home on my desk. Kunzite is my constant reminder to stay focused on love and kindness. As a human, it is too easy to get angry or feel frustrated. Kunzite reminds me to stay focused on my heart; therefore, anything unlike love melts away.

Jade— My jade is my reminder that it takes a community to do all the work I offer and that the wonderful members of my staff are an integral part of getting the message of love and positive thinking out into the world.”

Staying in “Grid Mode” by Margaret Ann Lembo

Staying in “Grid Mode” by Margaret Ann Lembo

“A crystal grid allows you to extend a positive intention out to the world for the purpose of contributing to universal peace and harmony. Such grids can be permanently established within a physical space or constructed as part of a solo or group meditation wherein the participants focus their intention on benefitting the world around them. When undertaken with strong positive intention, the results of such grids can be transformative.

The most important factor in establishing a grid is the intention of the grid itself and maintaining a focus on that intention. You know how easy it for our minds to wander off to the grocery store list, what someone said that hurt our feelings or any variety of random thoughts and feelings. When you are intentionally working with a grid, you will want to rid yourself of those extraneous thoughts and stay focused on the matter at hand. I recommend that you choose a crystal for that purpose, a stone you designate as the “I-will-stay-focused” stone. I’ve personally used laser quartz crystals, a kyanite blade, a natural formed black tourmaline, and selenite rods or wands. Regardless of which gem you pick for this purpose, establish a key phrase to keep your mind on the intention of the grid. I use the phrase, “Love, light, and well-being for the highest good of all concerned” or some variation on that.”

Create Your Grid with Intention

There is no wrong way to create a grid. Whether you are creating a grid to step into and lie down in or creating a small one for your alter, the use of geometry to link up one crystal to another is the way to go. Geometrics is simply a series of geometric shapes—lines, circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles—to form a design or a pattern.

Use a line to amplify and direct an intention between two crystals. Square formations are beneficial for grounding and stabilizing the reason for the grid. Rectangles are a simple variation on the square when you want to elongate or lengthen the time and space for the effectiveness of the intention within the grid. And, my personal favorite, triangle grids establish an alignment between heaven and earth. Use the triangle formation to request amplify assistance from angels and guides.”

Beginner’s Grid Making

Beginner’s Grid Making by Margaret Ann Lembo

“A crystal grid is the use of gemstones in geometric formations placed in or around a person, place or thing to achieve the formed intention. Crystal grids can be combined with crystal alignments with larger groups of people at sacred sites. Using crystals for essences to spray, in a charm bag, or in a grid, use the gems to focus your intentions for your daily life. Add prayers and positive affirmations to support your intentions. There are many ways to incorporate gemstones as a tool for amplifying all that is good.

Bring your rocks to bed. Place a smooth tumbled stone under your pillow or inside your pillowcase before going to sleep. You can also place it on your nightstand or under your mattress, or hold it in your hand as you fall asleep. A crystal grid on your night table or around your bed may be beneficial as well.

 

Create an altar or grid of gemstones. A crystal altar is simple to create. Simply choose a space in your home like a countertop, a windowsill, or a table. Either place the crystals in a bowl or create an attractive display or geometric formation with your intention in mind. There is a feeling of accomplishment and divine connection when we make a ritual out of working with gemstones. Find out more about creating a grid in Chapter 7 in my book, Crystals Beyond Beginners: Awaken Your Consciousness with Precious Gifts from the Earth.

Place gemstones around your home and office. Keep the crystal that aligns with your intention on your desk as a reminder. Place the chosen stones on windowsills, countertops, end tables, coffee tables, and so on.”
