Selenite, Smudging, and Sprays: Spiritual Hygiene

Selenite, Smudging, and Sprays: Spiritual Hygiene by Margaret Ann Lembo

 

Do find yourself slightly off after a day of activities? Beyond the natural need for rest, this feeling of imbalance is often the result of picking up the energy those around you. There is often residue of all types of energy in buildings, stores, schools, and so on. To maintain vitality and emotional balance, utilize tools for spiritual hygiene.

Selenite, a form of the mineral gypsum, aligns you with higher consciousness and love. It is a vibrational tool that activates mental clarity and focus. Selenite is a cleansing stone. Selenite is a reminder that you are spiritually, physically, and mentally aligned, it is easy to keep your emotions in balance. This stone helps you detach from drama and thereby gain a greater understanding of people and situations. Use this stone like a magic wand of love, light, and goodness to help dissipate any feelings of inadequacy, jealousy, doubt, fears, or any other type of negativity.

Smudging, the traditional spiritual practice of clearing away negative energy is a powerful way to clear out these vibes. Using the smoke of burning herbs typically dried sage focus on the intentional of removing these troublesome energies. Because of its ethereal qualities and its tendency to rise toward the heavens, smoke has been used in spiritual practices for millennia. When the herbs are burned, the smoke emitted is directed to all parts of the room or space being cleared. This is performed with the intention of releasing negative thoughts, words, actions, or other energies created by yourself or others that have accumulated there. In addition to clearing a physical space, smudging can be used for clearing the energy or aura of a person. You can even use it for clearing away any negative energy that has accumulated on specific possessions.

 

Equally as effective, the smokeless alternative, use a liquid combination of essential oils, vibrational flower essences, and holy waters around you and your space. The pleasant scent and the beneficial properties of the liquid restore equilibrium. Sage and cedar essential oils (two drops or milliliters of sage to one of cedar) combined with water in a spray bottle is an easy recipe to create your own personal liquid smudge. You can use an essential oil, such as sweet marjoram, on the base of your neck, your temples, and the base of your spine to “seal in” the clearing for added benefit. This is especially beneficial if you are feeling emotional or extremely out of sorts.

When I first created Smudge in Spray in the late 1990s, it was to clear away negativity and bring forth blessings. It also improved my respiratory health due to the combination of ingredients. Of course, I had to add Holy Water to the formula. During my travels over the years, I’ve been collecting and accumulating Holy Water from spiritual sights around the globe. In more recent years, my reader fans have gifted me with bottles of Holy Water from their local cathedral. It’s a gift that keeps on giving because I then add those Holy Waters to Smudge in Spray which has now become the number one best-selling smudge spray or liquid alternative to smudging. Check your local store or get it here from us at The Crystal Garden. It can be found from NYC to London, from Miami to Japan.

Whether you are using a smokeless smudge spray or a smoking smudge stick or herbs, simply spray or “smoke” your auric, or energy, field. Alternatively, spray the mist or allow the smoke to rise above and in front of you and walk into it. As the mist or smoke settles on and around you, imagine that your energy field is being cleared. Keep your mind focused on clearing away that which is no longer for your highest good and visualize, imagine, or know that you are inviting blessings and love to replace the negative energy or thoughtforms.

When you perform this for another person, spray the mist or release the smoke around his or her energy field, or allow the person to walk into the smoke or mist as described. Remind the person to visualize that the negativity is clearing away, making room for positive energy to enter.

Just like dust accumulates in corners of your home, take the time to consciously remove negative energy and employ these tools to restore well-being. Clear your energetic space then observe the difference in the way you feel. Note the shift in the way your days unfold when you keep the vibrations of your space vibrating at the rate of love.

The real purpose of smudging originates from the part of you that remembers your true nature, which is calm, peaceful, and happy. Smudging isn’t simply the removal of negativity, but more important, it is the remembrance of love, kindness, compassion, and true happiness. Find inner strength and cultivate self-confidence. Incorporate selenite, smudging, and sprays into your days and enjoy life!

Summertime Crystal Grid Ideas for Nature and Outdoors By Margaret Ann Lembo

Summertime Crystal Grid Ideas for Nature and Outdoors By Margaret Ann Lembo

A crystal grid is the use of gemstones in a geometric pattern placed on or around a person, place, or thing to achieve the desired intention. The use of sacred geometry to realize a goal is employed by many including metaphysicians, spiritual teachers, and spiritual practitioners.

Create a grid of stones in your backyard for summertime enjoyment. Set your intention and decide which gems best suit the situation. For an outdoor grid, I recommend that you take note of where you are placing the crystals around your yard.

Here is a step-by-step guide to get you going.

  • Write down a clear intention that defines the purpose of the grid.
  • Pick the crystals that will positively affect change.
  • State your intention
  • Intuitively place the stones around the space
  • Use your imagination and visualize beams of light connecting every stone for love and well-being.

Around the pool area use aquamarine, blue lace agate, chrysoprase, selenite align you with the spirits of water, relaxation, and comfort.

By the barbecue grill area use apatite, clear quartz, green calcite, hematite, rose quartz, smoky quartz to improve cooking abilities to provide your loved ones with healthy food.

For the gardener in you, make a grid to connect with nature spirits to support your gardening efforts. Choose andalusite, clear quartz, green moss agate, green tourmaline, and tree agate.

When creating a crystal grid in a landscape or even at home, room or office, remember to envision the crystals that are placed throughout the space connected energetically to create a geometric formation. In your mind’s eye, connect the crystals with beams of light in order to create the grid. Your imagination is key in this process. Use it and visualize your desired outcome.

Crystals and gemstones are tools for focusing your thoughts on your intentions and goals. Use crystals alongside two other key tools: visualization and imagination.

Remove Obstacles Attract Blessings: Saints, Deities, Aromatherapy and Gems

Remove Obstacles Attract Blessings: Saints, Deities, Aromatherapy and Gems

By Margaret Ann Lembo

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?

There is always hope. Call on saints or deities as allies to help you energetically with what seems to be hopeless. With focus, prayers, and faith, every situation can be shifted from despair to well-being. Make the decision and envision life as you wish it to be. Everything is a choice. And, yet, we often need help to overcome the darker hurdles on our path.

When you are feeling despair St. Jude is one you can call on. St. Jude is often considered the patron saint of hope and lost causes. Quiet your mind, send off a prayer to petition the aid of St. Jude Thaddeus when you feel that all is lost and there is no way out.

In the Hindu tradition, Ganesha is the elephant-headed god, son of Shiva and Parvati, is widely recognized as the destroyer of obstacles and a bringer of good fortune. Ganesha is the perfect ally to ask for help when you find yourself believe that you have a block or too many obstacles. Stories differ on how exactly he came to have an elephant’s head. Most believe that Shiva, his father, cut off his human head, without knowing it was his son, and replaced it with that of an elephant to save him.

In addition to calling on and invoking saints and deities, add aromatherapy and crystals to your entourage of allies. Use vibrational matching essential oils and gemstones to amplify your focus and intention to overcome life’s challenges. It’s helpful to remember that everything is temporary. Nothing is permanent. Trials and tribulations pass more quickly when we realize and remember that we have the ability to transform and transmute any challenge that arises with faith and focus.

Incorporate scents like amber and lemon to strengthen your personal power and core beliefs in positive outcomes.

Inhale deeply and let these fragrances and let these fragrances be your ally to help you know that the obstacles in your path will be cleared soon and the way will be revealed.

Wear gemstone jewelry with amber, citrine, and/or amethyst. You can also carry these gems in your pockets or a little gem bag. Or strategically place them around your home and/or office where you will glance upon them naturally. Gemstones are your ally, too, so you can overcome the hurdle with focused intention, prayer, and faith.  

Combine these matching vibrations of St. Jude, Ganesha, amber fragrance, lemon essential oil (or citrus scented perfumes), and gemstones like amber, amethyst, and citrine (golden topaz and golden calcite work well, too) to amplify your focus on your desired outcome. Practice repeating positive affirmations and strengthen your internal belief. Know that you can easily resolve the current difficulty and visualize the outcome that your heart desires.

Here are a few affirmations to get you started:

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.

Though there were numerous obstacles in life, there is always the option to overcome difficulties and turn overwhelming situations into positive learning experiences that instill wisdom. Practice gratitude and count your blessings!

Ganesha: Destroyer of Obstacles & Bringer of Blessings

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.

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.

Vitality: Ruby and Rutilated Quartz

Everything is energy, and all energy has a vibration. Crystals also have energy and vibration, and their vibration is based on the stone’s color and the manner in which the stone formed in the earth. Inner peace and calm are the keys to a healthy, balanced life. There are many gems you can use to maintain your awareness of habits of health. Ruby and rutilated quartz are especially useful to increase vim and vigor.


Use ruby or rutilated quartz to maintain focus and unblock underlying challenges regarding physical well-being and vitality as a tool for your physical body.


Use ruby when you decide to align with your core inner strength. This gemstone, due to its hardness and red energy, revs you up with the fuel required to live life to the fullest. Use ruby to keep on your person to encourage vitality and endurance. Repeat a positive thought to match ruby like: “Vital life force flows vibrantly through me. I am strong and health.”


Use rutilated quartz when you are working toward improving your energy level. The golden rutile inclusions within the stone enhance physical endurance. Decide that you intend to add chi or life force to the body. This positive affirmation is beneficial to repeat with rutilated quartz in hand: “I am grateful that my vital life force provides me with the energy and motivation to live life to the fullest!”
Integrate the power of positive thought into your daily life as often as you can. The gems will serve as reminders. Keep them on your person or put them in places where you will see them. When setting an intention, add the caveat that the outcome be for the highest good of all concerned. Wherever your thoughts go, action follows, and results are established.

Mindful Manifestation with Crystals and Gemstones by Margaret Ann Lembo

Are you ready to improve your ability to create your world as you want it to be? Ask yourself, “Am I fulfilled and happy?” If the answer isn’t a resounding, “YES!” then it’s time to awaken. Mindfulness is key to improve your spiritual and personal life. As you strive for personal growth, become self-aware. Start the self-awareness journey by becoming conscious of all the thoughts going through your mind.

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is being aware of your thoughts and consciously choosing which thoughts you allow into your mind. You create your reality with every thought, word, and action including outside influence. Outside influences include your choices of entertainment, reading, and music as well as conversations that you participate in. Your mind and intention design your days and your life.

Crystals and gemstones have been used for millennia to help with meditation and mindful manifestation. Crystals are tools that provide you with the ability to maintain mindfulness with focused intention. Crystals and gemstones are transformative tools that are found all throughout the world. They can help you in your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical personal development. Based on metaphysical principles, they can assist you in staying focused on your intentions to create and maintain positive change in your life. With the right vibrational matching gemstone nearby you have some help to remember to focus on what you DO want, instead what you don’t want in your life’s experiences.

Everything is energy, and all energy has a vibration. Crystals also have energy and vibration, and their vibration is based on the stone’s color and the manner in which the stone formed in the earth. Each and every stone has a spiritual component to help you further develop your spiritual connection. Likewise, each stone has a mental use that aids in maintaining mental focus and clarity, an emotional use that can help you deal with feelings and unblock underlying challenges, and physical uses that range from supporting the healing of your physical body to helping you fulfill your physical needs such as money and career.

To choose the crystal that best fits your positive thoughts and intentions for the purpose of amplifying your intention, simply look at your collection of crystals (and gemstone jewelry if you have some) as you stay focused on your goal. Get clear on your intention. Which stone or color does your eye naturally gravitate toward? Pick that gemstone and formalize your intention.

As an example, if your intention is to have more financial security, then try using a pyrite cube with a matching affirmation. Use pyrite to help strengthen courage and self-confidence. Such strength is needed to allow yourself to manifest money in your life through your creative efforts. Pyrite often forms in cubes and therefore has a geometrical connection to creating a strong foundation for anything you do.

Repeat this statement often and visualize the outcome.

There are plenty of people with plenty of money who want the goods and/or services that I offer. I’m self-motivated and strong. I am determined to follow through on the next best thing. I am productive. My confidence is rock solid. I focus on my intentions and take positive action to manifest my goals.

Do you believe that you build your reality? Start by recognizing that you do design your reality! Increase your ability through creativity and action for success in all endeavors, including financial success, fertility, creativity, family blessings, happy home, healthy body, and much more. Visualize your dreams as if they have already been realized. Create a strong foundation. Be determined and confident enough to make the necessary steps to build the life of your dreams. Pyrite is a stone of financial abundance. Use this stone with intention when you are trying to improve your financial status. Draw on its gold energy while you take action to increase your monetary wealth.

Archangel Gabriel and the Gemstone Guardians: Angel of Inspiration and the Dreamtime pair with the Herkimer Diamond

Archangel Gabriel is one of many angels to turn to for inspiration and clear messages from the Divine. You can decide that you want more guidance to come to you while you sleep during your dream state. Dreams are recognized as ongoing thought processes and some of the world’s most prominent scientists, musicians and inventors have significant dream insight that are responsible for major discoveries and profound musical works. I personally have experienced great understanding and ideas that are revealed to me upon waking. Archangel Gabriel can be your guide in the dream world.

The Herkimer diamond lends a hand in the Dreamtime. It is the number-one tool to use for lucid dreaming, shamanic journeywork, and vision seeking. The Herkimer Diamond is mined in Herkimer, NY, therefore explaining its moniker. Herkimer Diamonds are doubly terminated quartz (silicon dioxide) crystals. Herkimers heighten your consciousness and awareness as if you are turning on a light in a dark room. You can use a Herkimer diamond to ask for assistance from Archangels Gabriel because this little sparkly gem is a good vibrational match.

            With a Herkimer diamond in hand, asyourself, “Am I able to recall my dreams? Do I wake up inspired or knowing ananswer to an unresolved question or issue?” Contemplate the answers. Take thetime before going to sleep to form the intention to remember your dreams. Pausefor a moment to jot down your thoughts and feelings upon waking. Dreams can beyour internal psychologist and spiritual advisor. Dreams are powerful tools forself-healing, personal awareness, and spiritual growth.

On an emotional level, the Herkimer Diamond and Archangel Gabriel will help you to understand why you feel a certain way. Uncovers the little pockets of stored memories that were buried long ago and heal the previously hidden memories. Release them to make room for positive energy and new experiences.

Use this affirmation from Archangel Gabriel along with your Herkimer diamond:

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 creativethoughts and manifest my reality. I take enthusiastic action. I am productive.
