The Power of Flowers: Rebirth and Renewal
By Margaret Ann Lembo

For millennia, the plant and flower kingdom are our closest ally for a happy and healthy existence. Reawaken your connection with the vibrational benefits of flowers. It is beneficial to pay attention to their color and structure to the potential aromatic or medicinal uses.

As part of a mindfulness exercise, use plants and flowers as a tool for the focus to be truly present during your daily activities. Consider planting seeds and nurture their growth. Indoors or outdoors, develop a relationship with plants by putting your awareness on your heart and imagining the plant at its fruition and thriving. Use the same imagery to include yourself envisioning yourself happy, healthy, and thriving as well. Whatever we focus on and work toward with passion and determination must become a reality.

Plants and flowers are gifts for you and me – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Include using aromatherapy regularly to awaken, align with the Divine, calm your soul, ground your experience, and shift mind chatter into inner peace.

Take the time to meditate and focus on the center of your consciousness while in nature. Gift yourself with time in the sun and fresh air. Open to the realization that there is an underlying unity in all life. Allow your time with the plants and the flowers to reestablish the balance in your life. Find inner peace for your body, mind, and your soul.

A matching gemstone to use to remind you of your intention is Kambaba Jasper. Open your heart to loving yourself and others more fully and completely.

Affirm: The nourishing green energy of nature soothes my body. I nourish my soul, my mind, and my body.
Let the power of flowers bring you rebirth and renewal. Relax, restore, and awaken your body, mind, and spirit with these beautiful allies from the earth.

Perseverance and Faith by Margaret Ann Lembo

Maewyn Succat is his real name. Saint Patrick’s early years included a period when he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He was an imprisoned shepherd on Mount Slemish in County Antrim which is the first known home of Saint Patrick.

Call on the energy of Saint Patrick when you need an extra charge of good energy that will appear as little miracles all the time. If Saint Patrick comes to your awareness, let it be a reminder of the power of prayer and that it is time to pray. And, it’s a sign that perseverance and faith are necessary today and always.

Saint Patrick followed messages and realizations he received in the dreamtime to escape from slavery. Let this saint be a reminder to pay attention to your intuition and believe yourself when you receive messages or guidance.

Use this saint’s vibe to uncover your own mission in life. Throughout Saint Patrick’s life, from being kidnapped into slavery to becoming a powerful Catholic missionary and eventually a bishop in Ireland, he maintained his focus to stay on course in alignment with the Divine plan. Call on this energy to help you during times when you need tenacity and single-mindedness in your life.

So, is it good fortune or is it really perseverance and faith?

Affirmation: With faith and prayer, my petitions are always answered. Perseverance is part of my nature. I open my ears to hear the messages from within and follow clues of guidance all around me.

Everything is Unfolding as it Should by Margaret Ann Lembo

Everything is Unfolding as it Should
By Margaret Ann Lembo

People are feeling stressed due to this Global Pandemic. Emotions are high. Maintain a sense of prayerfulness for every single person with whom you interact. If you notice someone lashing out, instead of judging them, send them love and empathy. Keep them in your prayers or good thoughts. Sending good energy for someone raises your vibration, too. It truly helps the people around you. Find a way to add laughter to daily life.

Laughter is contagious. Laughter is the best medicine. Research has shown that a more profound sense of happiness possesses lower inflammatory responses and higher antiviral responses. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, which promotes well-being.

Remember, everything is energy. Therefore, when we each choose to vibrate at the rate of love and compassionate words and actions are in the forefront, it truly benefits the planetary consciousness. Every thought creates reality. Choose your thoughts, the tone of your voice, and your actions consciously. Evolve into the state of prayerfulness for your well-being as well as the well-being of all life.

It appears that now more than ever, there is a call to awaken consciousness more entirely and to believe that you can create personal reality fully. Through self-observation, note the areas of life that need a shift, without judgment. Each day is an opportunity to do it better, become a better person, awaken situational awareness, and improve on all levels – mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Design your reality in such a way that inner peace and happiness is your experience. Observing oneself – behaviors, thoughts, words, and actions – allows the opportunity to notice how more kindness, compassion, and love expands and experienced. The magnitude of loving-kindness we each emanate improves your life’s experience as well as the life experiences of those with whom you interact.

Everything is unfolding as it should. Trust the process.

Oh, Angel of Divine Intervention! I don’t know what to do next or how to handle this situation. Please guide the way so that I know the next best step to take.

A Time of Introspection: Aspiring Toward Spiritual Fulfillment by Margaret Ann Lembo

Blog Thumbnail with Gemstone Guardians & Your Soul Purpose

A Time of Introspection: Aspiring Toward Spiritual Fulfillment by Margaret Ann Lembo

As a global community, it is time to go within, step away and seclude, and live a cloistered life for a while. The key to embracing the sequestered experience is recognizing that this is a temporary calling in nature but is necessary to quiet down long enough to have realizations essential for spiritual evolution. During this unusual time, remember that this is all temporary. Nothing is permanent. Use this time wisely, and allow loving kindness.

The purpose of the earthly experience is to have the opportunity to evolve and grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is likely an opportunity to heal physically and regroup. Just as certain religious sects cloister to practice living a kinder and more conscious life, it is time for self-reflection without being called into a cloistered religious order.

During this time, you have a doorway of opportunity to focus on self-realization—the fulfillment of your potential. Give yourself permission to isolate and go within, almost as if in a convent or monastery. The challenge is to do this while maintaining only essential activities required for basic survival needs. We aren’t being asked to step inside a cave but rather isolate a bit to give our consciousness the time and space to think and contemplate.

Accentuate innate knowledge to live a life of purpose. You have the power to realize your unlimited potential. Remember a sacred agreement with the Divine that clearly outlines our Soul’s Purpose and unique life path.

Before you were born on this planet, you knew

  • what you intended to do,
  • what life challenges you would encounter,
  • what lessons you would learn,
  • what issues would be healed, and
  • how you would make a lasting contribution toward harmony and peace.

It is a perfect time to go within and allow a shift to happen that realigns your consciousness long enough to realize your soul purpose and the many reasons you came to Earth.

How The Crystal Garden is Coping Fulfilling Orders Virtually and Online – A News Brief

How The Crystal Garden is Coping Fulfilling Orders Virtually and Online – A News Brief

Thanks to the way the store grew organically over the years, (established 1988), Margaret Ann Lembo and her amazing well-versed staff were, luckily, in good shape for the pandemic. Although sales are significantly lower than when in-store shopping was an option, the online and virtual shoppers have kept The Crystal Garden alive.

In 2005, Lembo, an evolutionary aromatherapist, developed the Wholesale Division which sells The Crystal Garden Brand Aromatherapy. Her client base consists of brick-and-mortar conscious living stores, whole body markets, spas, chiropractors, and metaphysical stores and boutiques worldwide.

“I feel really fortunate,” she continued. “We had the right business model for the moment.”

The store closed to in-person browsing in March with Lembo noting that she has a “high percentage of senior staff” including herself. She and her team, The Crystal Garden Angels, found that their “regular customers just don’t care and appreciate her mindfulness to keep everyone safe while still providing service.”

The only people wanting to come into the store are tourists or people with time to kill while vacationing or wintering in Florida. Regular customers are still buying online or over the phone or during the Shop The Crystal Garden from Home Shows on Facebook Tuesdays at 6 PM ET https://www.facebook.com/TheCrystalGarden or on Instagram IGTV @thecrystalgardenstore on Thursdays at 12 noon ET.

Customers are enjoying concierge service and she said, “We are getting to know our customers more personally and uplift their spirits during this Global Pandemic when we are being called to isolate and go within.” The shows provide comic relief – they laugh a lot and often – while creating community as a break from the solitude that is necessary at this time.

Lembo has also been providing Free Zoom events that are often simulcast on Facebook on her Author Page https://www.facebook.com/MargaretAnnLemboPage

Being closed to browsing also gave the team a chance to remodel parts of the store – the incense room and the crystal room – and develop the studio for Shopping Shows and Free Zoom Event in the Angel Room which previously was primarily used as the Event Room for classes and workshops. They also took the opportunity to do reorganize the store in a way that makes it easier to pick the merchandise that is being purchased online.

All of the staff of The Crystal Garden are in a state of gratitude and are dedicated to providing safe and good service coupled with loving-kindness.

The Crystal Garden is located on TheCrystalGarden.com with a physical location (closed to the public) still at 2610 North Federal Highway, Boynton Beach, FL 33435. Call1-877-444-5099 email them at orders@thecrystalgarden.com for the fastest response.

The Essential Guide to Everyday Angels by Margaret Ann Lembo

The Essential Guide to Everyday Angels

by Margaret Ann Lembo

For as long as I can remember, angels have been part of my daily life. As a child, I felt and saw them in my imagination and called on their help whenever I was afraid or needed guidance. It was normal to imagine an angel, or a group of angels, surrounding me while I slept, ate, walked to school, took tests, and all the things we do as children. This foundation of knowing that everyday angels were always available and at my side has helped me to have a much happier and spiritual life. These core beliefs, established in childhood, are important factors in the spiritually-focused woman I have become.

Now, I am able to share the angelic realm from my perspective with you in The Essential Guide to Everyday Angels.

My sister, Mary Ann, was instrumental in helping me realize that I have angels all around me to help me. We shared a room and when I’d wake up in the night afraid, Mary Ann would comfort me and tell me to imagine my angels all around me watching over me while I slept. I am so grateful that I acquired this practice and knowledge at an early age.

I still actively connect with my angelic helpers for everyday life situations. Growing up in an Italian Roman Catholic family, it was common and normal at home and at school to make room for my guardian angel at my desk or at the dinner table or in any type of life situation. To this day, I intuitively hear and know that I have an entourage of angels, or sometimes legions of angels, at my beck and call. It is as simple as having a thought, imagining the angels around me, and then having faith that my heavenly helpers on ‘on the job’ so I can relax and allow life to unfold.

Since the early 1990’s I have presented many talks and workshops at bookstores throughout the US and in Canada with the intention of helping people connect with their angels. These heavenly messengers are waiting for instructions from each and every one of us. The telepathic assistance from the angelic realm is a very real part of my life and it can easily become a very real part of your life and make Essential Guide to Everyday Angelsyour life much easier.

As my knowledge of and love for crystals, minerals, and stones grew, I became aware of the various vibrational matches available through the energy of working with colorful gems. The angels are beings of light, each of them associated with a color or range of colors. Therefore, the use of gemstones are perfect reminders to maintain a focus on intended goals and aspirations because the gemstones also resonate with the color or ray of the angels and archangels, too. Teaming up the angelic world with crystals, minerals and stones, helps ground the connection I have with the angelic realm and will for you, too.

My desire for using all six senses to increase my awareness and awaken consciousness has led me to use essential oils to honor my olfactory senses. To smell the essence of everyday angels surrounding me helps make the angels even more real and palpable. I consider myself an evolutionary aromatherapist because the blends that I’ve created are divinely inspired with the intention of helping people to transform their life. The blends I’ve created in association with spiritual beings are tools, just like gemstones, to help you maintain your focus on your goals and aspirations. You’ll read more about these blends in the Appendix of this book under Aromatherapy Resources.

Unlimited Potential: Available to Everyone

By Margaret Ann Lembo

Each and every one of us has the power to realize our unlimited potential. We all have a sacred agreement with the Divine that clearly outlines our Soul’s Purpose and the unique life path, or career, we choose in this lifetime to fulfill that purpose.

Now more than ever we need to turn to all the resources available to us to consciously create a new destiny for ourselves and our planet.

For as long as I can remember, angels have been part of my daily life. As a child, I felt and saw them in my imagination and called on their Essential Guide to Everyday Angelshelp whenever I was afraid or needed guidance. It was normal to imagine an angel, or a group of angels, surrounding me while I slept, ate, walked to school, took tests, and all the things we do as children. This foundation of knowing that everyday angels were always available and at my side has helped me to have a much happier and spiritual life. These core beliefs, established in childhood, are important factors in the spiritually-focused woman I have become. I delve into this deeper in The Essential Guide to Everyday Angels.

Each and every one of us has the power to realize our unlimited potential. We all have a sacred agreement with the Divine that clearly outlines our Soul’s Purpose and the unique life path, or career, we choose in this lifetime to fulfill that purpose. Before you were born on this planet, you knew what you intended to do, what life challenges you would encounter, what lessons you would learn, what issues would be healed, and how you would make a lasting contribution toward harmony Your-Soul-Purpose-Thumbnailand peace. The vibrational matching gemstones shown on each of the cards in Gemstone Guardians Cards and Your Soul Purpose can help you maintain your focus on your intentions to create and maintain positive change in your life. Even when you don’t have specific crystals on hand, the images of these gemstones can serve as a constant reminder of your intentions.

When we are overshadowed by fear and anxieties, it often feels difficult to connect with angels and guides. Talk with your angels and use your imagination. Hold a gemstone and inhale some aromatherapy or spray some Guardian Angel Spray or Smudge in Spray around you as you connect. Even if you feel like you are ‘making it up.’ Talking with angels is easy. Simply imagine their energy standing or sitting near you as they listen to what you are feeling, fearing, and hoping. Use your imagination and activate your ability to make believe. Hold a gemstone and inhale an aroma to amplify the angelic interaction experience. Then, tell the angels how you would like their help and support. Be as clear and specific as possible then consider adding this statement, “May this or something better become manifest reality.” Angels aren’t able to intervene until you specifically request their help with detailed instructions on how you want them to help you.
