A Note from Margaret Ann

The Crystal Garden Front

Here is an update about The Crystal Garden. We are all safe and happy here at the store enjoying assisting you via phone, text, video, social media, and more.

We are so grateful to those of you who have supported us in shifting toward eCommerce (check out how many new items are on our website) and placing orders by phone and allowing us to serve you as we personal shop for you. It’s been so much fun and allows us to use our intuition while we are personally shopping for you. In fact, we have been able to give you so much more personal attention and cultivate deeper relationships with each of you.

Although we would love to see you in person, we don’t have a date set to open to the public. In addition to waiting for the data to indicate it’s safe to reopen, much planning and preparation are needed to ensure we can keep staff and customers safe.

For the safety of our customers, staff, and community as a whole, we ask that you also follow all recommended health and safety precautions everywhere you go, and to please stay home if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms.

The Crystal Garden is focused on serving the community by expanding the product selection on our website (visit us online at TheCrystalGarden.com) and offering virtual shopping events, virtual meditations, and other classes via Zoom and Facebook Live. Most Thursdays we offer a Facebook Live Shopping Event featuring different categories of curated items. We are your personal shoppers by phone, text, and social media, and more. We offer shipping and local pickup options for merchandise both on our website and on phone orders. We appreciate all of you who have expressed your gratitude for our efforts and have engaged in our online events and remote shopping.

We will keep you updated as the situation changes. We’ll navigate a gradual reopening over time with the same thoughtfulness as we made the switch to online back in March. At this time we anticipate that the first phase of reopening will look something like the following (at a future unknown date):

  • Appointments will be available in 15-minute windows, one person at a time.
  • All Customers and Staff members must wear a face covering at all times.
  • We will provide you with a clean pair of gloves as you enter that you will be required to wear while you’re in the store.
  • We ask that you limit touching merchandise until you think you might purchase it. Containers will be available to place the items you touched but didn’t purchase so we can disinfect it before it is returned to the shelf.
  • We will be installing plexiglass in the front showroom at the register and jewelry counters for added protection.
  • Physical distancing at a minimum of 6 feet will be strictly enforced.
  • All sales are final. No returns or exchanges. This is for everyone’s safety.

We really appreciate your support and understanding during these uncertain times. We love that so many of you consider us your “safe space” and a place to take a deep breath and center, and we want to continue to be that while protecting everyone.

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 blanksituations. 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 blankclear 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 blankto 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 blankand 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 blankalso helps you develop the ability to read between the lines.

Are you ready to transform your life?

blank

Are you ready to transform your life?

Fall is a time for shedding the old to make room for the new. Imagine any habits or thoughtforms that you’re ready to release are falling away like the leaves of a tree. Consciously decide to replace these with positive habits that will bring you closer to your goals and watch your life transform.

There are many saints and angels that can help you in this pursuit though my two favorites are Archangel Zadkiel and Saint Germain. Both are associated with the color purple, and Saint Germain connects you with the Violet Flame of Transformation.

blankArchangel Zadkiel is the angel of mercy and encourages forgiveness which is a big part of letting go. Not only must we forgive those we perceive have wronged us, but in many cases, we need to forgive ourselves for the part we played in the situation. Often “bad” habits come with a certain amount of guilt or shame and to fully release the habit we also must forgive ourselves.

Archangel Zadkiel also uses those around us as mirrors to show us areas of our lives we might need to work on. Have you noticed that people and situations are reflecting your feelings or thoughts? Archangel Zadkiel might already be working in your life to aid in your self-awareness and personal growth.

 

blank

Saint Germain and the Violet Flame are all about transmutation. Think of the Violet Flame like universal recycling, it takes in”negative” or unwanted energy and changes it into positive energy. Saint Germain also offers a higher perspective and understanding through hindsight. Through this fuller understanding, healing can truly begin. Lessons also become clear and you’ll find you no longer need to repeat the same patterns over and over again.

I can’t talk about transformation without mentioning Amethyst! Amethyst is the perfect ally during times of change. It aids in releasing addiction and can ease transformation. To use this vibration in changing unwanted situations, imagine yourself surrounded by a vibrating, glowing bubble of violet light emanating from the stone. As you imagine this, know that all that you are upset about or challenged by is currently being transformed and transmuted into something powerful. Imagine the situation changing to what you do want versus how it currently is. The vibration of your imagination of how you want your life to be combined with the violet light will effectuate change.

blank

Pair any of these tools with the following affirmation: “I create my reality. I can change my reality. It’s easy for me to transform and transmute challenging situations. I use my intuition and follow my hunches.”

Ganesha: Destroyer of Obstacles & Bringer of Blessings

blank

Do you want to make changes, but inner voices keep telling you that you can’t? Are you convincing yourself that you are blocked or stuck? You have the ability to overcome all obstacles. It is time to take action and be determined to make the necessary changes to transform your life!

Ganesha is the elephant-headed god in the Hindu tradition. Son of Shiva and Parvati, he is widely recognized as the destroyer of obstacles and a bringer of good fortune. Stories differ on how exactly he came to have an elephants head, though most believe it was a result of Shiva cutting off his human head and Parvati replacing it with that of an elephant to save her son.

I had planned to release this spray last year but the inspiration for the formula just wasn’t there. I’m a big believer in timing and waiting until something is just right before releasing it, so I waited until the time was right.

A lot happened between the expected release and now, forcing Ganesha to the back burner. One of the latest obstacles was a leak in my new bathroom that sent water into my office forcing me to remove absolutely everything from that room. This encouraged a major clearing and organizing that resulted in not only a more functional office but in me finding a scrap of paper with a formula written on it. As soon as I read it, I thought “Aha, Ganesha!” so I sat down and blended it right then and there. After a bit of tweaking, Ganesha was officially born.

Although there were numerous obstacles to his creation, true to his nature he removed them all. This energetic blend, like Ganesha himself, was born of difficulties turned to advantages and it is already a favorite among my staff and me.

Spray this spicy comforting scent to empower you to remember you can overcome any challenge with time, patience, and perseverance.

blank

Use this affirmation to aid in the process: Power and strength are mine. It is safe for me to be powerful in loving ways. I transform challenges with ease. I release what is no longer for my highest good. I am confident. I earn unlimited income doing what I love.

Archangel Gabriel and the Gemstone Guardians: Angel of the Annunciation and Dolomite

blank

It is said that Archangel Gabriel is fluent in all languages of man. I attribute this fluency to be a symbolic reminder that Gabriel can ‘speak’ to you and provide you with guidance in the form of communication that is easiest for you.

According to my research, Archangel Gabriel’s the first meeting with Daniel was to announce the birth of the Messiah 200 years before his birth. Gabriel is the Angel of the Annunciation and is a Divine Oracle. Annunciation is the formal term for Holy and Ceremonial Messages. Gabriel also appeared to Zacharias to let him know of the birth of John the Baptist or John the Precursor. His wife Elizabeth was too old to give birth so when Zacharias didn’t believe Gabriel he struck him mute until the baby was born.

With Archangel Gabriel as your guide, ask yourself, “What am I ready to create (birth) into my life that I perceive to be a miraculous event?” Align yourself with the realization that you can create anything that you put your attention on with passionate action to bring it forth into reality.

One of Archangel Gabriel’s vibrationally matching gemstones is Dolomite. With dolomite nearby contemplate this: Have you wanted to do something creative? Are you feeling artistic? Let your inspiration flow and generate your insight into manifest reality. It doesn’t matter what it is—it could be a nice meal, a pretty garden, an amazing photograph or some sewing project. Regardless, now is the time to produce it. It will bring you fulfillment and purpose.

Hold the dolomite or keep it nearby as you affirm the positive thoughts inspired by Archangel Gabriel as follows:

I relax my body, mind, and spirit to meditate regularly. Great ideas are constantly flowing into my mind. It is fulfilling to follow through on creative thoughts and manifest my reality. I take enthusiastic action. I am productive.

Excerpted from Archangels and Gemstone Guardians Cards

blank

Consider using your olfactory senses and spray the aromatic mist, Archangel Gabrielle Spray, to call on Archangel Gabrielle. Use it to help you receive messages from the Divine. Invoke this archangel for inspiration and guidance, dream interpretation and inner knowing. Spray it around you and your space. Feel the gold and white rays of joy and hope shining upon you. The ingredients are water (Gabriel’s element); a Divinely inspired proprietary blend of Medical Grade Essential Oils; Holy Waters from around the world; Sacred Site essences from around the world; Bach Flower Essences; and gemstone tinctures. The some of the gemstones used for this blend are amethyst, celestite, selenite, and more.

Author’s note: I changed the spelling of Gabriel to Gabrielle for my aromatic mist to emphasize the feminine energy of this archangel. All angels are androgynous which means they do not have a gender. They hold the vibration of both the masculine and feminine energy. It is my perception that it is likely that Gabriel appeared to Mary as a female angel, Gabrielle, for the Annunciation of the Christ Child’s birth.

The Cards in this post are from the Archangels and Gemstone Guardians Cards

Heliodor and Metatron: Light Activation

Heliodor and Metatron: Light Activation for Higher States of Consciousness

By Mblankargaret Ann Lembo

Today and every day, it is time to gain clarity and raise your vibration. This is especially true at the beginning of the year to set the tone for higher excellence. The information below is intended to encourage you and prompt you to have the courage to take action toward raising your vibration.

Heliodor, a yellow beryl gemstone, shines a translucent yellow light to aid you in realizing the golden halo that surrounds you and supports your alignment with higher states of consciousness. Invite Archangel Metatron to partner with you to activate your personal ascension process with this stone in hand. As you develop your soul’s evolution, this brilliant gem beams light on your path to help you recognize your path to enlightenment.

Who is Metatron? There are varying interpretations and stories of Metatron. Metatron and Enoch are the same being.  Enoch ascended to heaven and walked with God. Upon his return, he assumed the name Metatron after he was transformed into an archangel. The energy of fire is present in most accounts of the history of Metatron, which represents the powerful energy of transformation. Inviting or invoking the energy of Enoch or Metatron would be of great aid to empower you to help you with discernment, the setting of boundaries, mental clarity, and the power to transform and transmute challenging situations.

During this time on our planet, with the constant bombardment of social media, advertisements, the requirement for instant satisfaction, it is crucial to take the time to integrate and digest all that is happening on a personal world and a global level. Many people run from this thing to the next thing with little regard for the experience of just being. It is imperative to rest to digest. The digestion of food and life requires time to process, contemplate, and clear the mind of incessant chatter and thoughts. Use the gemstone, heliodor, to promote honoring the need to stop, ponder, and integrate life experiences before running to the next thing.

Heliodor provides you with mental clarity. It helps you discern the thought forms, or the mental energy, circling in your mind. As you become consciously aware of your thoughts with the help of this gem, you can discard the outdated thoughts and replace them with thoughts that focus on the life you want to live.

The fiery vibration of heliodor helps burn away negative emotions by shining a bright light into the darkness. Use this stone to improve your personal self-worth and increase your self-esteem. It is a good gem to support relief from depression. It’s time to embrace all that you are and recognize your magnificence. Imagine the sun shining brightly at your solar plexus rejuvenating your self-esteem and courage. You are a bright light with a clear focused mind.

On a physical level, heliodor is helpful for digestive issues. As a solar plexus stone, it helps with proper absorption of nutrients and foods through the digestive process. When used with conscious intention, this stone is beneficial for the healthy functioning of the spleen, pancreas, liver, gall bladder, and the small intestines.

Affirmation:
I process everything that is happening around me with ease and understanding. Mentally, I am clear and focused. I visualize my goals and aspirations effortlessly. I am self-assured and step forward in life with confidence and purpose. I am joyful.

Because heliodor is not always readily found at your local rock shop or conscious living gift store, other gems that match this vibration are citrine, golden calcite, golden topaz, sunstone, and amethyst.

THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NAVEL CHAKRA

The navel chakra is the energy center where creativity resides. The ability manifest reality is held here. It’s entirely up to you what you wish to manifest; it can be a book, a child, a business, a garden, a delicious meal, a sculpture and so on. The possibilities are endless. Pull the energy up from the belly to step into action to make it so!

This center is also the center for dreaming. In order to manifest anything, we must be able to see it in our mind’s eye—whether in our waking daydreams or our sleeping night dreams. The creative force of dreamtime comes forth from the area of the womb. Many indigenous cultures focus on the navel as the center of power for meditation, dance and dreaming.

blank

The navel chakra is also a storage center associated with emotions—both positive and negative. Often, emotions we least want to deal with are shoved down deep into the navel chakra. It is the place from which most cords of attachment to people, places and things of the past must be cut and released.

 Exercise: The Navel Manifestation List

On a blank piece of paper, write down one hundred things you would like to manifest or create in your life. Don’t hold back. Include all kinds of dreams and wishes. Once you’ve completed your list, organize your entries into the following categories:

Education  |  Family/Friends  |  Income/Career |  Physical  | Social  |  Spirituality  |  Travel

Next, prioritize the entries in each category so that the most important things you desire are at the top. Now, take one or two items from all of the categories and make a to-do list for each of those items, including everything required to make it happen. Establish deadlines for each of the items on your to-do list. Be very specific and work on something on the list every day.

            Anything that you ardently desire, visualize with passion,
truly believe in and enthusiastically act upon will come to pass.

              Tblankhe navel chakra is the energy center of manifestation. Combine your written lists and visualizations with affirmations.

 

Place a carnelian in your pocket or wear a carnelian bracelet as a constant reminder to keep you on task.  The orange color activates the natural color of the navel and the agate helps to ground and to keep you on task. Use the fertile thoughts you’ve planted in your consciousness and water them until they become a reality.

 

~Excerpt from Chakra Awakening by Margaret Ann Lembo

Other gemstones for the navel chakra also called the sacral chakra are: orange calcite, red goldstone, tiger’s eye, and unakite.2 oz Navel Chakra Spray: Creative Flow & Manifest Now Spray this synergy blend to activate the second chakra. Visualize orange light around your belly. Use this spray to remove blocks and increase your courage in bringing your ideas into actuality. Imagine your life as you want it to be!Try Navel Chakra Spray to bring balance.

Increase Your Psychic Powers Day

“Increase Your Psychic Powers Day”

October 31

In a lot of circles, the word psychic has a negative connotation. It conjures up thoughts of fortune telling. Instead of thinking about being psychic, let’s start thinking in terms of being intuitive. So, on October 31 I will be celebrating a new holiday that I am creating…“Increase Your Intuition Day.”

Let’s start with defining what intuition. It is the ability to acquire knowledge without proofevidence, or conscious reasoning, or without understanding how the knowledge was acquired. Everyone is intuitive. Regardless of whether we are conscious of it or not, much of what we do is based on feelings and intuition. The actions we take are often based on the feelings and thoughts of those around us. Imagine if we all became consciously aware of our intuitive abilities and deliberately acted upon our insights to be an instrument of good in our own lives and the lives of others. What a wonderful world we would live in!

blank

The Third Eye center is the place of your intuition and your ability to “see” the unseen, know the unknown, feel the intangible, and connect with the invisible world of “Spirit.” The Third Eye is the center for your higher intuition. Intuition is your ability to have direct access to the truth independent of any logical or reasoning process.

Clairvoyance is the intuitive skill people are most familiar with and strive for. Clairvoyance is the ability to receive intuitive messages through the vibration or energy of spiritual sight. This vibration resides primarily at the third eye, which is aptly named. When you use your clairvoyant abilities, you receive messages through visions in your mind’s eye. This includes messages that come through dreams and daydreams.

I have a deep understanding of myself and the circles of life around me. I am aligned with the Divine. I am profoundly clairvoyant and extremely intuitive. I comprehend the details of everything set before me. I am empowered. I am at peace.

2 oz Crown Chakra Aromatic

Charoite

Charoite activates the swirling energy of the Crown Chakra, jump-starting the movement of the vortex in alignment with the cosmos. This stone is an excellent choice for channeling, trance mediumship, intuition development, and spiritual awareness.

I am calm. I am at peace. My physical and energetic body flow with the currents and the rhythms of nature. I am extremely intuitive. My spirit guides and angels send me messages all the time. I am grateful for divine guidance.

 

Remember, we are all intuitive. It’s a matter of paying attention to our thoughts, the messages we are receiving, your inner voice and using them as an instrument for good!

With love and gratitude,

Margaret Ann Lembo

CELEBRATING 29 YEARS!

CELEBRATING 29 YEARS!

blankThis Saturday, August 12 we are celebrating 29 years in business! From humble beginnings in a tiny front showroom with crystals, some incense, cassettes (music on tape), and consignment crafts we’ve grown both in footprint and reputation. And boy, we have learned a lot along the way! From staff members, teachers, customers, fellow retailers and even animals. Yes, we used to have two cats, Tigger and Gabrielle. Then we added parakeets and cockatiels, my blue and gold macaw, ShaNay (who is happy at my home now) and a beautiful white dove, Mikael who graced us with his presence for 25 years! The Crystal Garden is more than just a store; it is a family.

In 2005 with the ‘birth’ of Smudge in Spray, The Crystal Garden officially blankbecame a brand. We soon added my line of 7 self-published guided meditation CD’s and thus began the Wholesale Division. We now offer over 100 aromatherapy and positive thought products under our label. You can find The Crystal Garden Brand in the UK, the Netherlands, Japan, Germany, Canada, and of course, throughout the USA. Doing our part to heal the planet one spritz at a time! We’ve stayed true to our roots and still hand blend and bottle all of our aromatherapy products infusing them with extra love and intention.

In 2011 with the publication of my first book, Chakra Awakening (Llewellyn Worldwide), I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of sharing the knowledge, I have been given with the world. Chakra Awakening is now in its seventh printing and is translated into seven languages making it truly international. As with everything else this was just the beginning, I now have five books, four decks, and two CD’s published with more on the way! See the back page of The Crystal Garden newsletter for more on these, many of which are also published in other languages. Following the success of these publications and years of teaching classes across the country, I created the Academy of the Spiritual Arts which is a sacred online space for learning and personal growth. We recently redesigned the site for added ease and functionality, check it out at www.AcademyOfTheSpiritualArts.com.

Be Happy Roll On Essential Oil by Margaret Ann LemboThe most recent addition is our “Be” line of Roll On essential oil blends. I created these essential oil blends with specific intentions in mind based on popular requests I have received over the years. More money, love, security, motivation, etc. Each essential oil is thoughtfully combined to fully support these intentions. This serves to give each one a unique aroma. Each bottle contains a proprietary blend of medical grade essential oils combined with fractionated coconut oil in an easy-to-apply cobalt roll on.

I want to thank each and every person who has been part of this journey, and I look forward to continuing it with you for many years to come. May you continue to feel love, peace, and harmony when you walk through the doors. Thank you for buying from us and keeping us in business all these years!

Gratitude! Gratitude! Gratitude!
