Inner Peace and Inspiration by Margaret Ann Lembo

Inner Peace and Inspiration

Inner Peace and Inspiration
by Margaret Ann Lembo

Guidance and inspiration are always available for you. It is helpful to quiet your mind and observe your breath.

Do it now.
Take a deep breath.
Notice how your diaphragm expands when you inhale and contracts when you exhale.
Do that again.

This time close your eyes and place your attention behind the center of your forehead. Go within and continue to observe your breath. Choose inner peace and calm.

Practice this little exercise for 5 minutes – or longer if you want to!

When you open your eyes, take notice of how you feel. Are there many thoughts churning around?

If you have experienced many thoughts, stop and list everything you are thinking about. Once you have written the list, do the short breathing exercise again. Take a deep breath and observe yourself. With your eyes closed, observe where you are sitting and how you feel; uncross your legs and arms, and make it your intention to quiet your mind.

These steps toward inner peace will quiet your mind and allow inspiration and realizations to come to your awareness.

Gemstones to Encourage Self-Care by Margaret Ann Lembo

Gemstones to Encourage Self-Care

Gemstones to Encourage Self-Care
By Margaret Ann Lembo

Using crystals, minerals, and stones is a tool to help you create balance, happiness, and health on all levels — mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. The energy of the gems, coupled with your clear intentions, helps you remember to focus on your wishes, dreams, and desires instead of what you don’t want to experience. These beautiful treasures remind you to stay focused and be mindful because our thoughts create reality and what we focus on is what we experience.

Here are five gemstones to choose from, or you can use them all!

Amethyst Small Druzy HeartAmethyst is a variety of quartz (crystalline silicon dioxide) with a natural violet color due to the impurity of iron, other trace elements, and irradiation. Due to the powerful transformative qualities of amethyst, keep it nearby when you want to change an unwanted situation and visualize the outcome or more positive reality. When you realize your emotions need to be transformed or significantly shifted, amethyst’s purple energy gives you the strength and wherewithal to make the change. Imagine yourself surrounded by the purple energy of this gemstone as you focus on how you would like to feel.

Angelite is a blue variety of anhydrous calcium sulfate. Call all on the angels with Angelite on hand to help you with your emotionalAngelite Angel Cover photo upsets. If you need to cry or are experiencing internal emotional angst, touch this stone and gaze at the calming blue color while you form the thought or prayers, asking your angels to help you. Ask for understanding and to be consciously aware when the messages are provided. Ask the angels to help you interpret the messages so you can apply them to your daily life.

Chrysoprase Palm StonesChrysoprase, used by Hildegarde von Bingen, is a microcrystalline quartz (silicon dioxide) denoted by its green color. With its sea-green appearance, chrysoprase reminds you to take a break and relax so that you can recharge yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. This stone helps you learn about color, sound, and vibration as a spiritual tool to open your consciousness to unlimited potential. It’s a heart chakra stone, opening you to love, compassion, and kindness.

Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate with a color caused by various impurities. Chrysocolla may be mixed with malachite, azurite,Chrysocolla Sphere $75 cuprite, and other copper minerals, as well as rock crystal quartz. Work with chrysocolla to absorb and transform your angst if you are disturbed by negative repetitive thoughts. With this stone in hand, imagine putting those negative thoughts into a compost pile and imagining them being transformed into a healthy foundation to support the positive seeds you plant in the place of negative ones!

Sodalite Large Tumbled StoneSodalite is a sodium aluminum silicate with sodium chloride and is best known as one of the components of lapis. Sodalite usually contains more calcite, evidenced by white inclusions. The calcite supports you as you change your focus onto habits of health and well-being. Sodalite balances rampant emotions. This is a perfect stone for calming and releasing anger and frustration. Use sodalite to maintain your focus on the intention of inner peace, health, and well-being.

 

I am calm.
I am relaxed, and all is well.
I sail through life on calm, nurturing waters and enjoy good health.

Stay focused using these beautiful treasures to remind you to be mindful because thoughts create reality and what we focus on is what we experience.

Abundance and Gratitude: Gemstones and Essential Oils for Prosperity

Abundance and Gratitude: Gemstones and Essential Oils for Prosperity
By Margaret Ann Lembo

It is a time of an abundance of all that is good. It’s ALWAYS a time for prosperous living.

Would you like to manifest more wealth?
Jade Obelisk Cover PhotoCall on the Angel of Abundance and Prosperity when you perceive a deficiency in some aspect of your life. Take time to uncover how and why you feel like you don’t have enough or that there isn’t plenty for you and those around you. Be as specific as possible. Once you’ve identified the lack, call on the Angel of Abundance and Prosperity to help you see how you can improve the situation. Remember to ask for the motivation to take action to change your reality—or your perception of reality. Partner this angel with the Angel of Gratitude to amplify the awareness that you have plenty of everything you will ever need and increase your ability to share your abundance. Simply recognize your good fortune. Focus on your vast abundance, and you will attract more.

Employ gemstones and essential oils to realize your blessings and to attract me. Amethyst helps to release negative beliefs regarding material wealth. Carnelian’s orange vibe will help you have the courage and the motivation to take action to manifest financial success. Emerald, green aventurine, and jade are well known for the energy they carry to increase health, good fortune, and great wealth. Allspice, basil, cinnamon, and patchouli essential oils can activate your mindset geared toward wealth using the olfactory senses.

State a clear intention like this and transform your financial reality:

All I need is always within reach. I am grateful for everything I have. Extraordinary love and incredible wealth on all levels are always available to me. I have plenty of money and plenty to share.

The Conscious Collaborator: Gemstones and Your Soul Purpose

The Conscious Collaborator Gemstones and Your Soul Purpose

The Conscious Collaborator: Gemstones and Your Soul Purpose

by Margaret Ann Lembo

The Soul Purpose archetypes, in the Gemstone Guardians and Your Soul Purpose, express different parts of our inner self, the qualities of which can be seen in the different professions clustered within each group.

When working with soul purpose archetypes and their matching gemstones, call on their vibration to create your world. Call on your willingness to be wildly successful doing what you love. Be adventurous and far-sighted as you think outside the box to allow the implementation of your ideas. Take action and remain open to working together with others.

Pull the Manufacturer and Bismuth card. They are a matching vibration signifying that it’s time to take steps to bring your ideas into physical manifestation. Bismuth, the ally mineral, is an element that crystallizes in spectacular stair-step formations. Typically, laboratory-grown (manufactured), bismuth aids in tapping into building the perfect structure one step at a time using base materials. Bismuth’s geometrical patterns help create pathways for developing creative ideas, making it the perfect matching vibration for this life path.

The Visionary and Moldavite align easily to support the unimpeded flow of information, ideas, and realizations. Visionaries are open to and aware that they are connected to the bigger picture. When you contemplate the Visionary and the mineral Moldavite it invites you to use your intuition and internal guidance system. The visionary has the confidence and courage to actualize visions because they’ve already worked out the whole process to completion, so it is easier to implement the vision into reality. Moldavite, a naturally formed glass associated with meteoric activity, helps to bring forth visions from out of this world. You can use moldavite as a tool to activate your vision so that you can move forward calmly without hesitation. The energy of this stone propels you forward.

The Philanthropist and the gemstone Rhodonite team together with the purpose of successfully raising or contributing funds for the welfare of others. While the term “philanthropist” usually indicates those who make generous donations to support a cause, other life paths fall into this category as well, including benefactors, donors, sponsors, fundraisers, and nonprofit marketers. They come together with hard work, dedication, and delegation as a community with a clear purpose. Philanthropy is much more than just a charitable donation. It is an altruistic effort to improve the well-being of another or a group of people. A philanthropist or benefactor holds the energy of success due to perseverance, endurance, and putting in many hours to achieve goals, and they have the means to share the fruits of their labor with others to restore and assist others in their lives. Foster this energy in yourself.

When you pull Philanthropist and Rhodonite card, you are being called to create a strategy, do your research, find solutions, and lead the way to raise money to donate toward a good cause. Sometimes philanthropy takes the form of small donations to a friend or colleague in need of a little extra support to get them through a hard time. Rhodonite helps you restore balance. This life path of a benefactor or a restorer provides the opportunity to increase personal abundance and financial security through altruistic actions. Use this energy to expand your thoughts of gratitude while focusing on your existing blessings. Make this a daily practice. It will lead you toward having plenty of money with plenty to spare. Believe in unlimited wealth and success. Activate philanthropic actions and notice how infinite supply becomes more available to you.

Contemplate these gems and wisdom teaching to open your consciousness to grasp the interrelatedness of all life. Everything is energy. All energy has a vibration. Decide how you will use your energy to be a conscious collaborator here on planet Earth.

The Conscious Collaborator: Gemstones and Animal Totems

The Conscious Collaborator Gemstones and Animal Totems

The Conscious Collaborator: Gemstones and Animal Totems

by Margaret Ann Lembo

Messages from the gemstone oracle provide guidance for collaboration and interweaving skills, knowledge, and passion to be the change and make the changes. Using my various gemstone guardians cards oracles, the intention to create personal and community growth becomes clear. The crystals and associated messages invite you to contemplate a question and the divine guidance from that crystal. Refer to this section to bring insights and guidance from the gemstones and a deeper understanding of others as you interact with people from all walks of life as well as animals and nature. Utilize the wisdom from the animal totem and the chosen crystals as a guide to understanding yourself better. Look at the information provided to help you discover how it applies to you at this time in your life and find the joy in coming together as a team being a pathway to success.

“It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.” – Charles Darwin

Drawing on the Animal Totems and the Gemstone Kingdom book and the matching deck, Animal Allies and Gemstone Guardians Cards, you have some degree of each aspect available to you to use. The gemstones listed with each animal totem are oracles to inspire you and provide wisdom as well as insights for you.

Ask yourself, “Are you aware of how you fit into the collective consciousness? Do you work well with others and attract loyal friends?”

Ant and Red CalciteAnt totem with the matching stone, red calcite, is an ally that will help you work with others in a harmonious and organized manner. Ants are industrious and responsible. Red calcite holds the energy of staying organized and getting things done in an intelligent, sequential manner. Take notice of your ability to work harmoniously with others. Be sure you are prepared for the future and have supplies in store for unexpected storms or delays in obtaining food. Cultivate ways to be welcoming and gracious with guests in your home, as well as with those who come into your business. Remember to ask for help, delegate, and work together with others. The old African saying “It takes a village to raise a child” applies to you now.

Goldfish and Golden Topaz make a perfect team to remind you that whatever you ardently believe andGoldfish and Golden Topaz desire and passionately work toward will manifest. Goldfish have a schooling mentality and behavior, which means they are mindful of their neighbors, including distance and flow. This characteristic of Goldfish symbolizes mass consciousness or collective consciousness. Goldfish is an ally when you need to find your own way while at the same time working cooperatively with others for the good of the whole. Golden topaz helps you maintain mindfulness and reminds you that it is safe to be powerful in a loving way. Goldfish totem with golden topaz encourages you to shine your light to reach your full potential.

Clarity and focus are key ingredients in successful endeavors and businesses. The group and individual participants must have a clear vision of their goals. Teamwork is imperative to implement inspired products and services.

Contemplate these gems and wisdom teaching to open your consciousness to grasp the interrelatedness of all life. Everything is energy. All energy has a vibration. Decide how you will use your energy to be a conscious collaborator here on planet Earth.

Heart-Centered Living: Establishing a Center Within with Precious Gifts from the Earth

Heart-centered Living

Heart-Centered Living: Establishing a Center Within with Precious Gifts from the Earth
By Margaret Ann Lembo

We are in a relationship with everything. Being in a relationship is part of our lives, down to the minutiae. We are in connection with people, but our relationship with ourselves is less obvious.

Our connection with others has many levels, including friendship, neighbors, acquaintances, coworkers, employees, supervisors, authority figures, family, extended family, etc. Additionally, a relationship exists between animals and nature in all its forms and inanimate objects, such as cars, computers, TVs, sofas, recliners, beds, and more. The less obvious connection with ourselves has just as many layers, but it takes conscious intention to uncover the awareness of the love we have for ourselves. And within all our connections are emotions, reactions, and feelings, as well as unconditional love.

Living and Loving Unconditionally

Halt the incessant chatter of your mind and your busy life long enough to recognize feelings that need to be acknowledged. Turn off the TV, step away from the computer, turn off your cell phone and STOP! Stop, sit and be still. Focus on your breath and let it all be.

Ask yourself:

  • Do I allow myself to feel my feelings truly?
  • Am I burying feelings with busyness?
  • Do I ignore the emotions that come up?
  • How do I deal with feelings within me?
  • Do I live and let live?
  • Am I quick to point fingers at others and their lifestyles or behaviors?
  • Am I trying to get others to conform to what I believe to be the right way, my way?

Conscious Relationship

As you develop spiritually, you enter into relationships with conscious awareness. A conscious relationship means looking at yourself from many aspects and authentically being present in the relationship. Due to various previously experienced good and bad relationships, it often takes great courage to move beyond hurt or fear of failure and consciously move into a relationship.

Allow yourself the gift of loving yourself enough to move forward into intimacy. Even the word “intimacy” sends the heartbeat racing for some. Show up more fully in life and be daring enough to reveal yourself. Intimacy is simply a way to know yourself honestly and love yourself more deeply. Intimacy is a relationship you have with yourself. As you observe yourself, you’ll see intimacy is “into me see.” So the question is, “Can you trust yourself?” By trusting yourself, you open up your sacred heart.

Crystals, Minerals, and Stones

Add crystals, minerals, and stones to achieve a loving relationship with yourself and others.

Kunzite Chrysoprase and MalachiteBecause of the soothing energy of the green shades of chrysoprase, you may use it to assuage a broken heart. It’s like a healing salve on a sore while being gently rocked in the arms of a dear one to help make it feel “all better.”

Kunzite is a pink stone of love. Kunzite also occurs in green, violet, and white. It emanates a loving vibration that radiates in a wide radius. Kunzite reminds you how to love and be loved.

The swirling shades of green in malachite help to move the energy in your heart. The swirls create concentric circles that appear like a bull’s eyes throughout the stone. The bull’s eye connects you to the ability to get to the heart of the issue using the focus of the bull’s eye. If there are issues to be addressed and you recognize it’s time to address them with no pussyfooting around, then use malachite to aim your sights on uncovering and healing them.

Aromatherapeutic Allies

The use of aromatherapy is a huge part of the litany of gifts from the earth. Extracting the essential oil from the flower, plant, barks, and roots is just another level of receiving the garden’s magic and nature. The aromatic parts of plants in the form of oils, mists, incense, and sprays for the purposes of healing physical, mental, and/or emotional complaints and improving your overall well-being.

Lavender and LimeLavender is a great tool for meditation. This oil brings in blessings and the sweetness of love. The cleansing scent of lavender clears and calms the mind and brings about mental clarity, helping you to sort out the details and release chaos. It also relieves mental exhaustion, stress, and anxiety. Lavender is comforting to your heart, soothing and calming chaotic and rampant emotions such as hysteria and worry.

Lime’s bright, happy scent adds joy to spiritual practice and uplifts your consciousness to invite higher thoughts. Lime is an excellent tool to use for periods of contemplation and integration. Lime brings mental clarity. Use it when you need to feel more alert. Lime assists you in feeling joy and finding inner peace.

The power of intention, positive affirmations, and awakened consciousness are your tools to live a happier, spiritually fulfilled life. Living a heart-centered life and establishing a clear center using precious gifts from the earth leads to a charmed life.

The Crystal Garden is Celebrating 34 Years in Business!

The Crystal Garden has been open since early August 1988. This year we are celebrating 34 years in business. We’ve made many great memories and had some challenges; overall, The Crystal Garden is blessed and a blessing. Over the years, many people have healed and reclaimed their power in our space.

Located on the southeast peninsula of Florida in Palm Beach County, we’ve had our share of damaging storms. And we’ve had the opportunity to prove that with electricity or without, we still survive and thrive. We worked by a generator to ship out as many orders as possible after Hurricane Irma left a tree on our roof. Most recently, we went through the pandemic and vastly shifted our business model to accommodate the changing times.

The pandemic gave us the time to renovate the store and build our online presence. As a result, the merchandise presentation is very organized and much brighter both in the store and online. In addition, the website offerings at TheCrystalGarden.com have tripled. And while a lot of good came out of this time, we’re happy to be back to “normal” with in-store customers again!

We now have what I like to call The Crystal Garden TV. As an author, I offer regular meditations and classes (available live on Zoom and The Crystal Garden Facebook Page). Wherever you are in the world, you can attend my FREE events! Look at the Calendar on our website to find out about upcoming classes. You can also find past events on YouTube.com/Margaret Ann Lembo. The Angel Room has transformed into a recording studio. We also started a weekly shop-from-home event on The Crystal Garden Facebook Page. These events are so fun and enlightening. Links to attend can be found here and in the weekly emails. Not on our list? Click here to receive our emails.

The Crystal Garden glitters with many crystals and gemstones at excellent prices! Almost daily, a customer will exclaim delightfully because of our extensive high-quality gemstone selection and great prices. Some say it’s the lowest prices they’ve seen. We also offer a Frequent Buyer Program which you are automatically enrolled in when you shop with us (in-store or online). For every $100 you spend with us, you’ll receive a $10 off certificate for use on your next visit/order (only one can be applied per day).

It’s always been my intention to have a sacred space for people to come to connect with and enliven their spiritual nature. So, I made this store for you. It’s a place to help you connect with self-awareness, self-knowledge, and your intuitive nature. We have an accommodating, knowledgeable staff. Cait, Katrina, Sandra, Tatiana, Kat, Angelina, and I are happy to help you find the perfect treasure. The Crystal Garden is more than a retail store, it is a place of healing energy, beauty, and wonder. It is a place to find tools to heal, grow, and be inspired. Through meditation, reading books, journaling, dream interpretation, aromatherapy, chakra balancing, and gemstones, you have an opportunity to be happy and live an empowered life. During your visit to The Crystal Garden, with the fragrant air and relaxing music, you can breathe deeply and know all is well.

Thank you for 34 years, and here’s to 34 more!

Emotional Harmony with Gemstones and Aromatherapy

Emotional Harmony with Gemstones and Aromatherapy
by Margaret Ann Lembo

It is natural to want to find balance or restore balance on all levels. When you feel like your life is out of control, it is important to mindfully ward off negative thinking as well as negative people and situations. Enhance your personal power and transform your life Start by becoming very aware of chaotic thoughts and confusing situations. Take the time to sort them out and focus on fostering good energy.

Align with the vibration of mercy and compassion. Awaken kindness. Feel gratitude. Open to receiving abundance and health in your life’s experience. Spend time in your garden or somewhere in nature. Pay attention to your animal companions to restore and renew yourself.

Lavender-Oil

Lavender and chamomile essential oils are tried and true for peaceful experiences, good sleep, and harmonious interactions. Put a dab of sweet marjoram essential oil on your occiput at the base of your neck on days that you are feeling especially emotional and vulnerable to quell those feelings. Ylang-ylang is a good essential oil to work with to relax the mind and calm erratic emotions.

When you want to make positive changes, the fossilized resin, amber, is beneficial when you need to maintain boundaries with others. Keep some amethyst nearby when you feel that you must transform challenging situations. The lithium content in lepidolite is an ideal vibrational ally to balance emotions. Use the pastel green nurturing influence of chrysoprase for compassion for yourself and others. The chartreuse green energy of peridot helps you digest all that’s happening around you so you can stay emotionally balanced and in your power.

Affirm something like this with a few gems and aromas nearby: “Negativity flows away effortlessly and lovingly. I am free of emotional baggage. I fully appreciate this transformation and enjoy emotional balance.”

Frog Medicine: Leap Forward with Crystal Clear Intentions
By Margaret Ann Lembo

Frog Medicine: Leap Forward with Crystal Clear Intentions

By Margaret Ann Lembo

One morning, years ago, I woke up from a sound sleep with the title of the book had to write. Animal Totems and the Gemstone Kingdom is the name of the book and within it, you can find how messages and lessons from the animal kingdom connect to the vast, supportive energetic world of crystals and gemstones, and how these can help you with your life. The connectedness of everything on our planet—from rocks and crystals to plants and animals—are tools to guide you on your journey here on Mother Earth.

Animal medicine offers us a powerful signpost for self-knowledge and clarity on life’s challenges. When a creature from nature appears to you repetitively or in some out-of-the-ordinary way, it is time to pay attention and find the message that nature is bringing you. While I’ve designated one gemstone per animal there are many crystals that are a vibrational match.

With all the wonderful rains of spring and summer, frog medicine has shown up for me here in South Florida. Frog totem is an ally that helps you make significant leaps forward in your life, as well as in your soul’s evolution. When Frog hops in, it may be alerting you to get ready to take action. Frog is associated with water and rain, preferring to be in moist conditions. On a metaphysical level, water relates to your emotions. Unclutter your mind and emotions in order to lighten your energy for the big leap forward.

Green-dyed agate, as well as aquamarine, enhydro-quartz crystals (water inside), elestial quartz, and larimar, are some of the vibrationally matching gemstones with frog medicine. Use these crystals with the intention for bring renewal and realignment. Take time to reflect on where you’ve been and where you are going. Through inward reflection, you will find the help you need to see your path and yourself better.
