Invite the Divine into your Relationships: Archangel Chamuel and Kunzite

Invite the Divine into your Relationships: Archangel Chamuel and Kunzite

by Margaret Ann Lembo

Do you allow love into your life? Are you cultivating your existing relationships with love and attention? Do you need to heal wounds from previous relationships and leave those burdens outside to dissolve?
You have a relationship with everything and everyone. You also have a relationship with yourself. With a focus on self-love, cultivate that relationship and uncover what it means to you to have a relationship with yourself. Observe how much time and effort you put into all your relationships. Note if one or more of your relationship requires more attention.

Invite the Divine into your relationship(s) with the help of the Angel of Relationships. When you feel like you don’t have the types of close-knit friendships you desire, ask this angel to help you delve into unresolved emotions. Heal your emotions and make a decision to discontinue unwanted repetitive patterns in your relationships so that your future interactions are healthy and uplifting.

Call on Archangel Chamuel to amplify blessings and well-being in relationships. Archangel Chamuel, one of the seven archangels, is the angel of peaceful relationships. Chamuel’s name means “one who seeks God” and helps you find a spiritual connection in all relationships. Call on this archangel to boost your self-confidence to amplify blessings and well-being in relationships, to heal issues from past relationships, and free you of old emotional challenges and petty arguments. Archangel Chamuel helps to open your heart center and activate unconditional love and compassionate action.

Use kunzite as a tool for setting your intention to maintain a loving vibration at all times. Kunzite helps you attract healthy romantic relationships as well as supportive loving friendships and good business colleagues. This stone encourages kindness, compassion, and tolerance. With its loving energy, kunzite is good for supporting the health of your physical heart as well as your general health, as love heals all things. With kunzite in hand, imagine love vibrating in every cell, bone, and muscle in your physical body. This practice amplifies the degree of healing for yourself and others as well.

With kunzite in hand, petition your angels, archangels, and the Divine with something like this:
“Please help me cultivate a wonderful group of friends and colleagues in my life with courage and confidence. Help me shift my energy to allow me to receive love and take steps to do my part in nurturing loyal, caring friendships. Please help me open my heart and have the strength to overcome shyness or a lack of self-esteem so that I can take action to develop strong, healthy connections with great friends and family, including my romantic relationship. Thank you!”

Add affirmations or positive thoughts to your daily routine to help you stay focused on what you do want instead of dwelling on what you don’t want. Here are loving affirmations that will help you invite the Divine into your relationships. After all, what you think about creates your reality!
“I am love. All that surrounds me and all that is attracted to me is love. I attract loyal and authentic friends and romantic relationships. I am blessed with supportive friends. I am grateful for companionship in my life. My friendships and business relationships are important to me. I take steps to cultivate close-knit bonds with people close to me.”

Blessings and Good Fortune: Attract Abundance, Health, and Happiness

Blessings and Good Fortune: Attract abundance, health, and happiness

By Margaret Ann Lembo

When it comes to luck, it’s always up to you and your mindset to attract favorable circumstances. Ask yourself, ‘In what ways am I lucky? Where in my life do I feel unlucky? What is the source of all the happiness, luck, and favorable outcomes I’ve experienced?

You can shift your mindset so you can believe that you are always blessed with favorable outcomes and that you can always have great luck! Luck appears to come by chance, but in truth, it is a state of mind. When you believe you can have success, prosperity, good health, along with a wonderful family and good friends—things that make you feel lucky—you invite these things to manifest in your life. Having good fortune is your decision.

Amplify your intentions and maintain mindfulness on a life filled with goodness and blessings using amethyst, copper, carnelian, citrine, and jade, to name a few gems. Use the amethyst to attract good thoughts, pleasant dreams, and transformational experiences that lead you to blessings and good fortune. Keep copper nearby with the intention to be a conduit of good luck for those around you. Allow the carnelian to motivate you to take the action required to manifest a life filled with all that is good. Hold onto some citrine to assist you when you need some help to look at life optimistically as you consciously create your reality filled with blessings. Keep jade in your pocket or on your desk as a reminder that you have a life filled with blessings, good health, great wealth, and happiness.

Send off a petition and invite the Angel of Good Fortune to light your path. Send off a request something like this:

Oh, Angel of Good Fortune! Please help me attract blessings, abundance, prosperity, great health, and happiness into my life. Inspire me to be fortunate enough to know how to create my own luck. In addition to random chance, show me ways to take action to create favorable outcomes and good fortune. Let me manifest my dreams to bring blessings into my own life and into the lives of others. Help me to have plenty of all that is good so that I can share that good fortune with my friends, family, and the community. Thank you!

Use some positive thoughts to replace thoughts that are no longer for your highest good. Here are a few affirmations to include in your daily thoughts:

I am so incredibly lucky! My life is replete with blessings. The energies of abundance and prosperity flow continuously in my life. I am grateful for all that I have. I am safe and secure because luck is on my side. I am blessed with good luck while traveling. My heart is open and I have good fortune when it comes to loving relationships. My creative mind finds ways to generate my own good luck.

May your days be filled with blessings and love and may the angels light your path.

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 situations. 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 clear 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 to 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 and 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.

Crystal Grids for Peaceful Interactions

Crystal Grids for Peaceful Interactions

“Whether you are setting this grid in your home, office, or backyard, the intention to establish with these gems is peaceful, harmonious, and calm vibrations. The hematite stones will assist in grounding the remaining stones in this grid to establish a strong foundation.

  • CelestiteCelestite of either the cluster or tumbled variety is excellent to focus on during challenging or upsetting conversations. The pastel-blue color of this gemstone brings calm and peaceful conversations when used with that intent. Use celestite to call on the angelic realm to help you find the right words during intense conversations. Celestite can help you to be very present and an active listener so you really hear what is being said.
  • Clear quartz cluster—A quartz cluster is a group of clear quartz points growing on the same matrix or held together as a group of points on a shared foundation. Quartz clusters, including amethyst, citrine, and smoky quartz, are good for establishing a solid, shared foundation on which to build a harmonious community. Such clusters are beneficial for communication and the true understanding of others in a group setting.
  • Hematite—This shiny metallic stone works wonders in shifting negative feelings by calming and relaxing you. It is a grounding stone that helps you focus on that which is important. It is also a perfect stone to help quiet the mind and to reach a nothingness state of consciousness, as the majority of the people often experience frequent, incessant mental chatter. This stone is beneficial to relax the physical body and calm the mind to enable a quiet time for contemplation and connection with the earth.
  • Lapis lazuli—This rock is composed of several minerals, including hauynite, sodalite, noselite, lazurite, calcite, and pyrite. The hauynite causes the blue color, while the calcite is responsible for the white inclusions. The deep blue vibration of lapis lazuli calms feelings of frustration, agitation, and anger. With this stone in hand, you can find ways to deal with the emotional turmoil resulting from physical, mental, or emotional abuse so you can heal and find inner peace. The vibration of this deep blue color offers a sense of protection and helps to rid you or your surroundings of anger and rage.

Predict Your Own Future: Create Your Reality

Predict Your Own Future: Create Your Reality
By Margaret Ann Lembo

The power of prediction lies within you. Cast the elements of your future by maintaining a clear focus on what you want to happen. The word prediction breaks down as follows: pre- means ‘before’ and -diction has to do with talking. Make a statement about your personal world and your personal future potential realities. It’s not necessary to declare this statement to anyone other than yourself.

Practice contemplative thought and visualization. Imagination is the key to success in whatever endeavor you foresee yourself implementing. Therefore, imagine your life as if it has already unfolded in the manner in which you desire. The next steps are important though. The next steps are to take steps – to take action and piece together each part of the potential future reality one step at a time. Write out all the components of what is needed for your predict. The forecast for success is bright and you have the unlimited potential to create your world.

Using a gemstone and an essential oil can help you to design your reality with matching positive affirmations.

Citrine helps improve self-confidence. Use this gem to believe in yourself and gain clarity on intentions and how they build the future. Hold citrine in hand and imagine reality unfolding in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Practice visualizing your life as if it has already happened and you are looking back at a time when you first thought of the new existence. Inhale petitgrain essential oil and let this aromatic oil shine light on mental obstacles. Use your awakened awareness to activate creative processes to support mental and physical activity. Remember, the power lies within you.

Affirm: I am courageous and bravely bring my ideas into actuality. My imagination is the key to my success. I envision my future and joyfully participate as it unfolds.

Aromatherapy and Gemstones for Mindfulness and more

Aromatherapy and Gemstones for Mindfulness and more
By Margaret Ann Lembo

Aromatherapy isn’t just for smelling! Essential oils are powerful allies – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. They contain potent chemical components and have the ability to deter a wide range of bacterial, fungal, viral, and/or other disease-causing microorganisms. Aromatherapy is effective on an energetic level to restore balance. Add a gemstone to help you maintain mindfulness and match your intentions with the aroma. Gemstones and crystals are allies to help you with mindfulness.

Here is a peek into the vibrational level of four essential oils and some gems opening to help you step beyond the ordinary.

Eucalyptus’ medicinal scent is penetrating, peppery, and powerful. With lapiz lazuli or sodalite in hand, inhale eucalyptus and breathe deeply to calm you while you release unhealthy attachments. The deep blue color of these two gems help you to see, sense, feel, and know the truth in any matter. Lapis lazuli opens the third eye and the intuitive senses when used with conscious intent. This is a good stone to help you remember your dreams and promote clarity during dreamtime. Lapis lazuli and sodalite along with other dark blue gemstones improve your concentration and focus and can be used during test-taking to align you with the higher knowledge that is accessible to all.

 

Frankincense brings wisdom and connection with inner peace and calm. Its respiratory gifts open the breathing passages making it a perfect tool for meditation. It helps us to remember that all things are possible. It teams with apophyllite to aid in grasping the connection to the divine. Apophyllite helps you access the Akashic Records. Use it during Reiki sessions to help you stay focused on allowing the Universal Life Force to flow through you. This sparkling gem brings higher levels of clarity to meditation experiences.

Lavender offers sweet transformation. Attraction to this scent signals a time to comfort yourself as you take it into your own hands to do what it takes to make your life happy. The list of therapeutic properties is quite long! Pair lavender’s scent with pink calcite to amplify feelings of safety and comfort. Pink calcite activates loving thoughts. It transforms less ideal mental musings into thoughts of self-love, thereby increasing your ability to love, and receive love from, others. Hold this stone when you are concentrating on thinking positive and uplifting thoughts about yourself and others.

Patchouli is perfect to attract both love and money. Inhale patchouli to help bring focus and promote the action necessary to amplify prosperity and goodwill toward all. Patchouli is a stabilizer and encourages grounded action. Gemstones like green moss agate or Kambamba jasper are beneficial to help you release toxic thoughts and replace them with good thoughts that naturally attract benefic energy. Green moss agate, with its moss-like pattern, helps you to remember to ground yourself. Use Green moss agate when you are experiencing mental fatigue. This stone helps you replenish your mental focus. Use Kambamba to improve your ability to give love and receive love. Its green energy opens your heart to loving yourself and others more fully and completely. It is also a good stone to keep nearby during regression therapy. The stone contains stromatolites, which are among the oldest fossils on earth considered to be over 3 billion years old, which provides it with the energy to help dislodge any stored information that is causing a repetitive pattern in your emotional consciousness.

Enjoy the benefits of pairing gemstones with essential oils to increase well-being and inner peace in your life. Maintain a sense of gratitude in all that you do and you will be blessed in all areas of your life.

Archangel Gabriel, Dreamtime Messages, and Celestite

Archangel Gabriel, Dreamtime Messages, and Celestite

by Margaret Ann Lembo

Archangel Gabriel is a Divine Oracle and often brings information and messages through visions and dreams. Place celestite on your nightstand or your desk as a constant reminder to yourself and the heavenly realm that you are open to communication and higher wisdom through dreams and other forms of inspiration. If you don’t already have a dream journal, be sure to keep it on your nightstand. It’s helpful to journal or jot down a few notes of intention before retiring so an intention is established for the dreamtime experience. Upon waking, make it a habit to write down anything at all you recall including feelings or emotions. Any snippet from the dream is good to write down as it signals your subconscious and unconscious mind that you are serious about receiving messages from the angels in your dreams.

The first meeting Gabriel had on the earthly plane was with Daniel to announce the birth of the Messiah 200 years before his birth. Gabriel is the Angel of the Annunciation. Annunciation is the formal term for Holy and Ceremonial Messages.

Gabriel’s primary responsibility is to select the birth order of souls who are ready to be born on earth. From the divine chamber the vibrational energy of Gabriel as a bird sings a song and escorts the new soul into the earthly realm. Gabriel is the angel to connect with when you or someone you know is pregnant. Gabriel watches over the unborn baby all the way until they are born. While in utero, Gabriel shares wisdom and knowledge of the heavenly realm. These heavenly secrets are sealed by the action of Gabriel pressing his fingers to the lips of the baby leaving a soft mark that creates the cleft beneath the nose. Sometimes we receive messages from the angels through children, so even when children may seem like they are saying nonsensical things, perhaps there is a deeper message there – so pay attention!

In order to hear or become aware of messages, being present in each moment is necessary. Keep celestite nearby with the intention of calming the incessant chatter of the mind. Celestite helps you to be truly present in your body while still being connected to the spiritual world. Add a little essential oil to your meditative experience to calm the mind and emotions. Bergamot and lavender make a nice combination to bring mental clarity and calm to the experience.

Celestite is the stone of angelic communication. With celestite in hand and clear intention, you can reach the angels when you need things in your life to be a little easier. When you look for guidance from the heavenly realm, this delightful sky blue gem helps you recognize the heavenly messages in everything, from billboards, TV shows, and news headlines to innocent eavesdropping, number sequences, songs, dreams, and the voice within. Celestite is a stone you can use when you want some special assistance from Gabriel.

Use celestite stone to help you synchronize with the highest realm. If you are in a visionary business like a New Age store, a metaphysical practitioner, visionary artist, or any other spiritual related business, keep this stone close by. It’s also helpful if you are running a conscious business engaged in integrating spirituality and ethics into business practices. It helps you to still be prosperous while providing conscious or spiritual services.

Use affirmations or positive thoughtforms to establish intention when using this translucent pastel blue gem. Think good thoughts like these:

“I remember to ask the angels for help or Divine intervention when I am in need of it. I hear, see, notice, and understand the messages from the angels. I receive messages every day in every way. I interpret the signs from above with great accuracy.”

Angel of Comfort: Chrysoprase and Lavender Essential Oil for support and kindness

Angel of Comfort: Chrysoprase and Lavender Essential Oil for support and kindness
By Margaret Ann Lembo

Do you need comforting? Are you experiencing emotional challenges? Call on the Angel of Comfort to support you during times of personal suffering. Your internal dialog can prevent you from feeling that everything will be alright. Breathe deeply and inhale lavender essential oil to clear and calm your mind, comfort your heart and soothe and calm chaotic rampant emotions. Lavender is a great tool for meditation. This oil brings in blessings and the sweetness of love. Due to its relaxing and sedative nature, lavender is beneficial for challenging situations on all levels and for all ages. Inhale this essential oil while you repeat the affirmations below.

Turn to the Angel of Comfort when you feel inconsolable. Imagine you are telling this angel all that is on your mind. Hold a piece of chrysoprase to bring forth a sense of being cared for, loved, and appreciated as you inhale the lavender essential oil and imagine you are asking this angel for help. Give the Angel of Comfort permission to help you to feel the support you need so you can release emotions and feelings that are causing discomfort and grief. Put extra time into your meditation to balance your heart chakra so you can open your heart to feel love and kindness enveloping you. Be sure to stay grounded and in the present moment by focusing on your root chakra as you affirm that you know that everything will be all right. Access your inner power at your solar plexus and make it your intention to feel confident in the ultimate outcome of well-being and happiness.

Chrysoprase is a heart chakra stone. With this stone in hand, open your heart to give love and, even more important, to let yourself receive love. Chrysoprase heightens your compassion for yourself when you realize that your repetitive thoughts are attracting unwanted situations. With this stone in hand, you can consciously decide to have the courage and confidence to allow love into your life.
Give the Angel of Comfort permission to help you feel the support you need so you can release emotions and feelings that are causing discomfort and grief. You can also call on archangels to help you when you need further support. For example, Archangel Michael is a favorite archangel to bring forth feelings of safety. Call on Archangel Raphael to help emotional discomfort as well as physical discomfort. Archangel Zadkiel can help you gain mental clarity and focus so you can develop a logical approach to overcome uncomfortable situations.

It is time to find the tools to bring your comfort. Take it into your own hands to do what it takes to make your life happier and filled with peace and calm.

Repeat this affirmation to help you to make the shift:
“I feel at ease. My friends and family are supportive and encouraging. Everything I need or want is always available to me. I am comforted and allow balance to return to my life. Uplifting vibes are available to me always. Nurturing energy surrounds me, bringing my emotional body into alignment. I attract inner peace and comfort every day in many ways.”

Crystal Grids for Good Communication

Crystal Grids for Good Communication

“It is important to listen well and understand others as well as to be heard and understood. These blue gems interact well with each other to amplify the intention of good communication which includes listening and expressing oneself with ease.

  • 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. With this stone in your grid, you are better able to discern the truth and set boundaries with those around you who are not coming from a place of genuineness and integrity. When your words come from a loving and compassionate place, they have the power to heal or improve a situation.
  • 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. Ask God and the angels for understanding and calming energy to allow for true communication, which includes active listening as well as speaking.
  • 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 also helps you develop the ability to read between the lines. Blue lace agate increases your ability to stay calm and peaceful in times of stress and turmoil, and it aids you in appropriately communicating your emotions and feelings. It’s also a good stone to have when you want to have good timing.”

Crystal Grids on the Desk and in the Office

Crystal Grids on the Desk and in the Office

“The choices for placement of stones on your desk are unlimited. There is no need to make geometric formations with the crystals placed on a desk, though you can if you wish, of course. Simply place gemstones within your line of sight and your reach so you can gaze at the stone or pick it up easily. Again, you can create a crystal grid for your desk and/or office that suits exactly the type of energy you want to invite into your work life.

What’s on My Desk? What’s on Your Desk?
Keeping crystals and gemstones close by while you work is a powerful way to bring in all types of positive energy, like extra focus, high motivation, deep intuition, unleashed creativity, and so on. My writing desk is always covered by a variety of gemstones, which I might change from time to time depending on what sort of energy I want to invite into my workspace. I place all the stones within my line of vision in a row in front of my monitors. You may want to create a special grid with the stones you place on your desk or just line them up like I do. Here’s what you’ll find on my desk as I write this, and what these same stones might do for you in your workspace:

Carnelian—This beautiful tumbled piece of carnelian is a constant reminder to me to take action and give birth to the many ideas and inspirational products that flow through my consciousness. I consider this particular piece my writing companion. Sometimes it’s just in my peripheral vision reminding me to maintain forward momentum with a manuscript or article. Other times, it’s a motivator to finalize something.

Clear quartz tabular point—A tabular point is flat and narrow on one termination and the other point is rounder and wider, making this piece of quartz a bit unusual looking. The flat portion on one side of the point has triangular markings, creating a crystalline castle–type appearance. I gaze at this stone when I’m contemplating what I’ll be writing next or when I’m happily waiting for a deeper understanding of something so that I can put it in writing.

Elestial (record keeper) quartz—I keep two elestial smoky quartz crystals on my desk to keep me in communication with the angelic realm. One is shaped like a scepter point with cathedral-like turret formations. The record keeper markings (which look like a series of fine triangular etchings, but are completely natural) are predominant on both of them. Legend has it that these geometric treasures (which hold records of the past, present, and potential future realities) were brought to earth by the heavenly realm through the ethers, which is why this skeletal-like quartz often looks singed.

Sodalite—I keep three pieces of this stone on my desk. Two are large tumbled stones, and the other is an extraordinary heart-shaped piece. I focus on this trio when I need to calm myself and slow down. If I feel agitated about something, especially if it involves a business matter that I’m discussing on the phone, I either hold them or gaze at them to ground myself and regain my sense of calm. Also, the deep blue of this stone aligns me with the energy of inspired thinking while I write.

Kunzite—Three pieces of kunzite have their home on my desk. Kunzite is my constant reminder to stay focused on love and kindness. As a human, it is too easy to get angry or feel frustrated. Kunzite reminds me to stay focused on my heart; therefore, anything unlike love melts away.

Jade— My jade is my reminder that it takes a community to do all the work I offer and that the wonderful members of my staff are an integral part of getting the message of love and positive thinking out into the world.”
