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.

Amulets have been used for protection and good luck since our earliest recorded history. While an amulet can be made of virtually any material, crystals bring the added benefit of their positive associations and intentions. The word amulet is synonymous with lucky charm, totem, fetish, juju, talisman, and more, though there are minor variations in meaning.

The Reality of Resolutions

Chakra Awakening Book Cover

The Reality of Resolutions 

by Margaret Ann Lembo

At the beginning of every year, you find yourself making “the list.” You ask yourself, “What do I want to achieve this year?” “Am I happy with my life the way it is?” The change in the calendar from one year to the next offers the opportunity to ask yourself these questions and more.

Don’t wait to make the list. It’s always time to use tools for the focus to create your reality. Resolutions are for daily use all year long, every year.

Are you living your passion? If not, each day is the right day to begin to change to make your life all you want it to be.

An excerpt from Chakra Awakening

Creativity

The orange at the navel can be used as a focus for the intentional creation of reality. What do you want to give birth to? Connect with the end result in advance. Connect with the spirit of your creation as if it already exists. Do you want to create your own business, build a house, create a garden, or write a book?

Imagine the spirit of your creation. Contemplate these questions: What does it look like? How does it feel? How does it smell? If your creation is something you can hold on to, imagine not only what it may emotionally feel like—the sensations as you touch it—but also how it feels to you on an emotional level. Use all your senses: thought, emotion, taste, smell, touch, sight, and sound. Whatever you put your attention on will be created.

To create something, organize your thoughts. Make a list of what you want. Arrange these thoughts into categories like income, career, family, travel, physical, social, education, and spirituality. Written goals and intentions clarify and crystallize your objective. Prioritize, visualize, make lists, and set deadlines. Establishing a deadline creates a chemical reaction in your body, mind, and spirit to make the goal a reality. Use lists to help you stay organized and focused.

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.”

Diversity and Innovation . . . Change

Diversity and Innovation . . . Change

Diversity and Innovation . . . Change
By Margaret Ann Lembo

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

This quote is attributed to both Max Planck and Albert Einstein. Both of these men were scientists.

Change is an opportunity for transformation and advancement. It brings breakthroughs and metamorphosis. It is through the ever-changing cycles of life – daily, weekly, monthly, and so on – that you find improvement. Change always brings about better life situations. Sometimes it takes a moment, or much longer, to relax into the experience and allow the revelations and realizations to bubble to the surface of your consciousness.

First, recognize and accept that change is in the process of happening. Ask yourself these questions:

“What’s changing in my life? How will these changes affect my future? Why am I feeling apprehensive about these new life experiences?”

Call on help from the Divine. Take time for contemplative thought and a quiet mind. This helps you shift and flow with change. The only constant in life is change. Make the effort to awaken and know the source of underlying issues. Life flows in circles and cycles. All cycles shift and change. Focus on how you want your reality to manifest in alignment with the changes that are occurring. Thoughts and beliefs create reality. You are in charge of your own world. Release worry and have faith and courage. Design your reality.

Essential Oils and Gemstones for Change:
Add the assistance of aromatherapy and crystals to improve your ability to focus on your desired outcome. Elemi essential oil encourages you to make the changes needed to restructure the thoughts that are constantly rotating through your consciousness. Let this oil be a reminder to observe the thoughts you have and to make sure those thoughts are what you want to broadcast to the universe. Work with orange calcite to activate a creative approach to situations that are initially challenging and pink calcite to embrace kindheartedness as you go through life-changing situations.

Set an intention and make a petition to the Divine, like this:
Please help me relax and flow with the ever-turning cycles that create change. Help me find ways to consciously effectuate change. Help me easily adapt so that my new way of life is happy and fulfilling.

Affirm:
I create my reality. I know how to make positive changes to transform my life in a desired way. I embrace change with ease and grace.
