Saint Francis of Assisi, Patron of Animals and Animal Lovers

Similar to the voice of God heard by the Italian mystic St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226), the aromatherapy formulas that come to me are Divinely inspired. The ideas and inspiration for all that I do feel as if they are coming as direct requests from God, Goddess, and legions of Angels.

This past December 2017, the inspiration to create the St. Francis of Assisi blend for this patron saint of animals and the environment came loud and clear.

To align with this saint and to get to know a little about St. Francis it is said that he heard the voice of Christ, who told him to rebuild the Christian Church. Even if you aren’t aligned with the Christian faith, the teachings of Jesus the Christ are comparatively aligned with Buddha, Krishna, and other spiritual masters teaching love, compassion, and kindness. Francis paid attention to the instructions he received and devoted himself to Christianity. He began preaching around Assisi, Italy, and was soon joined by 12 followers.

Some perceived Francis as a madman or a fool to give up his great wealth and follow the spiritual guidance he received. Others saw  him as one of the greatest examples of how to live the Christian ideal since Jesus Christ himself. “Whether he was really touched by God, or simply a man misinterpreting hallucinations brought on by mental illness and/or poor health, Francis of Assisi quickly became well-known throughout the Christian world.”

The prayer of St Francis of Assisi is a good example and a teaching to help each of us become a better person.


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me bring love.

Where there is offense, let me bring pardon.

Where there is discord, let me bring union.

Where there is error, let me bring truth.

Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.

Where there is despair, let me bring hope.

Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.

Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.

O Master, let me not seek as much

to be consoled as to console,

to be understood as to understand,

to be loved as to love,

for it is in giving that one receives,

it is in self-forgetting that one finds,

it is in pardoning that one is pardoned,

it is in dying that one is raised to eternal life.


St. Francis founded the religious order known as the Franciscans. He became renowned for his love, simplicity, and practice of poverty like many other spiritual masters that came before him and after him.

There are many stories of how St. Francis could communicate with animals and felt at one with all creation. It is more common today to connect with people who communicate with animals and understand animals – sometimes even better than the understanding we have for fellow humans.

St. Francis was known to invoke birds, animals and reptiles to praise and love their Creator. And many times during Francis’ life there were remarkable events of Francis speaking to the animals.

On October 4, people all over the world celebrate the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi. This day, in many locales, dedicates this day for the “Blessing of the Animals.”

Information for this post was compiled from ‘the Little Flowers of St, Francis of Assisi” book, the website of the Franciscan Friars and Catholic Encyclopedia.

St. Joseph Divine Partner by Margaret Ann Lembo

St. Joseph is celebrated each year on March 19. Growing up Italian, it was a special day which included Italian pastries. But pastries are not the focus of this post, St. Joseph is the focus..

St. Joseph was the ultimate Divine Partner. He was Mother Mary‘s husband. When you really think all of his qualities and all that he experienced, he certainly makes a good role model to emulate and follow. For example, St. Joseph obeyed the direction of an Angel of God on three occasions. And, Mother Mary had angelic apparitions as well. Read on.

Mary had a profound and amazing experience. When the angel Gabriel appeared to her, this is the message, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end” (Luke 1:30-33). She questioned the angel, as well she might: “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” (Luke 1:34). And Gabriel explained the supernatural phenomenon that would accomplish this unbelievable feat. “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason, the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35).

Now, contemplate how St. Joseph could have easily thought that she was with another man.

An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for that which has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins” (Matt. 1:20, 21).

Think about how Joseph felt before the dream and how intense it was to have the appearance of an angel to guide him. He had to be a man of great faith and trust to follow that inner guidance. Instead, he was a man of faith and received and believed guidance from God’s angels. Call on St. Joseph when you need to have faith and trust in the messages from the Divine and your heavenly legion of angels.

The angel of God appeared to Joseph two more times. Another message from an angel came to Joseph in a dream: “Arise and take the Child and His mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him” (Matt. 2:13). After Herod’s death, the angel spoke to Joseph in Egypt: “Arise and take the Child and His mother and go into the land of Israel; for those who sought the Child’s life are dead” (Matt. 2:20).

St. Joseph is also a Patron of Homes and Families. Considering that he was a hard-working carpenter, he provided a solid and safe foundation for Mother Mary and Jesus. Joseph died before Jesus’ public life began and he was a consistent good earthly father figure for Jesus. Ask St. Joseph to help you attract the support of a good father or father figures in your life. This also includes the guidance and mentoring required in order to build a strong healthy foundation in successful business practices or sources of income to support you and your family. This St. Joseph Spray is a mist to use to call on St. Joseph to watch over your family.

The point of reflecting on these experiences of the Holy Family is to point toward the ability to trust the messages, follow the guidance, and trust your spouse and the direction you or your spouse receives. Trust is crucial in relationships so invite St. Joseph to bless you with the wisdom and trust needed to follow guidance. Invoke this saint for good fortune in a home and when moving.

I’m not sure where the practice and idea of burying a St. Joseph statue (upside down) in your yard to sell your home started but it is well-known by many. St. Joseph House Selling Kits can be found in my own store, The Crystal Garden, and many others. I personally put a St. Joseph statue on the window sill looking out when we wanted to sell the family home. I just didn’t feel drawn to burying the statue. Instead, I used the statue as a constant reminder that the right family would be attracted to our property for the right price for all concerned. Use our St. Joseph Spray for a speedy prosperous sale of real estate.

Whether you want to sell a home, increase your connection with messages from the divine or draw in your perfect partner Saint Joseph Spray can help. The scent of Saint Joseph Spray will help clear out negativity and increase abundance and blessings in your life.

Archangel Uriel, Matching Vibrational Gemstones, and Essential Oils by Margaret Ann Lembo

Tools for Archangel Uriel

Archangel Uriel is the Angel of Light and Wisdom and the Fire of God. The connection with fire aligns Uriel with the transformative power of nature. As the angel of natural phenomena, storms, hail, fire, thunder, lightning, volcanoes, and earthquakes all fall under the vibration of Uriel. Archangel Uriel is aligned with the direction of the north. This direction holds the energy of our ancestors and all those who have walked on this planet before us. The main color ray for Archangel Uriel is gold. This archangel teaches humankind to be stewards of the earth. The gemstones celestite, copper, peacock copper, pyrite, and sunstone are a vibrational match to Archangel Uriel. Essential oils to be used to invoke this Archangel’s assistance include black pepper, frankincense, and pink grapefruit. Inhale one or more of these essential oils and keep these gemstones nearby when you are ready to ask for angelic transformational assistance combined with wisdom and prosperity.

  • Celestite—Use this stone of angelic or heavenly communication to call on Archangel Uriel. Ask for help interpreting and recognizing the heavenly messages in everything – from billboards to number sequences. Archangel Uriel is associated with the energy of extraordinary wealth. If you work in a visionary business like a New Age store, as a metaphysical practitioner or visionary artist, or in any other spiritually 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.
  • CopperThis metallic element helps you remember that your power is immeasurable, just like the power of Archangel Uriel. Call on Uriel when you need to transform anger and frustration into useful energy and channel the vibe of wise elders. The historic nature of this metal, combined with its colorful variations when exposed to the elements and its thermally and electrically conductive qualities, increases your ability to tap into the cosmos to garner wisdom, knowledge, and surprising information that can be applied to your spiritual practice of meditation, prayer, and contemplation.
  • Peacock copper—This rainbow-like stone offers support as you learn to express yourself within the realm of angels, spirit guides, and Ascended Masters, especially when varying shades of blue are the stone’s predominant colors. This stone helps you remain grounded as you tap into these higher frequencies. It also helps you translate the information as it is downloaded to you.
  • Pyrite—The stone of natural abundance, pyrite is a metallic golden stone reminiscent of the golden flecks in your halo. With this stone in hand, visualize an energy field around your whole body that is especially luminescent around your head. Within this field, see, sense, or feel the sparkling golden pyrite activating and expanding your energy field. The golden vibration of pyrite assists you in remembering your magnificence. Call on the energy of Archangel Uriel with pyrite in hand when you are trying to improve your financial status. Draw on its gold energy while you take action to increase your monetary wealth.
  • Sunstone—This luminous stone brings you the spiritual fortitude and self-confidence to develop your spiritual gifts. The fiery nature of sunstone helps you tap into the energy of Archangel Uriel and recognize that you have a direct connection with the Divine. This stone reminds you that self-confidence is necessary to improve your own life as well as to be an instrument of peace and love to help all humanity. This stone activates that part of you that remembers your spiritual magnificence. Sunstone amplifies the vital life force within you. It promotes passionate action toward a goal and provides the motivation required to get things done.

Angels are ready to help you with your daily life. No task or request is too small or too mundane. Whether you are going through emotional challenges, change, prosperity issues, or anything at all, the angels are available to you all the time. Crystals and gemstones along with the floral blessing of essential oils are the perfect sparkling tools to help you remember to ask the angels for their help. Angels can only provide heavenly intervention upon request because you have free will here on this planet. Let your crystals and aromas be a constant reminder to invite and invoke the angels.

Open Your Heart and Soothe Your Nerves: Kambamba Jasper and Archangel Seraphiel by Margaret Ann Lembo

There are many people who have made a conscious decision to rid themselves of negative thoughts, beliefs, and behavior patterns. They’ve decided that they are ready to release people, places, and situations that are no longer supportive, loving, and authentic. Take a moment and contemplate if this is true for you, too.

This is an age-old intention and dilemma. Turn to contemplative thought with Kambamba jasper in hand. 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. Kambamba jasper is beneficial when you are setting the intention to release yourself from negative or toxic thoughts, especially thoughts that have been part of your consciousness seemingly forever.

Kambamba jasper is a mystical stone that aligns you with inner peace inherent in your true nature. This stone opens you up to allow more love, calm, and tolerance into your consciousness. Hold it in the palm of your hand during meditation while you focus and breathe deeply. This mysterious-looking stone can be a tool to uncover karmic lessons brought forward from other lifetimes as well as this one. The vibration of the stromatolites within this stone activates a part of you that resonates with past life realizations because of the biological activity within this stone that spans thousands of years. 

Call on Archangel Seraphiel to aid in the release of personal and family karma. Archangel Seraphiel is an Angel of Purification because of his fiery nature. The fire burns away the karma. This archangel is the leader of the seraphim angelic choir. The seraphim are the angels that are closest to God. Seraphiel can be invited to help clear away the repetitive patterns that are holding you back from the life you want to live.

The green energy of Kambamba Jasper along with sound and vibrations of the music of Archangel Seraphiel’s angelic choir can offer you an opportunity to release the karmic lessons using sound. Consider attending a concert. Join in on a chanting session with Buddhist or Hindu chants. Attend a singing bowl experience or a gong sound bath and ask that the vibrations of the music open you to recognize the lessons you need to understand. Let them be revealed to you to bring you closer to the Divine spark within.

There is music that is imperceptible to human ears that is said to be created by the movements of the heavenly bodies. Another perspective it that the music of the spheres are created by the heavenly choir of angels, the seraphim, to vibrate at such a high rate as to realign one’s energy – body, mind, and spirit – to recalibrate and align with the heavenly realm. The celestial sounds and the energy of Archangel Seraphiel transform and transmute karmic lessons to realign you with compassion and love.

Open your heart and soothe your nerves as you call on Archangel Seraphiel and affirm this positive statement with Kambamba jasper in hand:

I am calm and relaxed. The nourishing green energy of nature soothes my body, mind, and spirit. Only goodness and love are allowed in my space. I am protected from negative influences.

Love Divine: Attract your Romantic Life Partner with Rose Quartz, Archangel Chamuel, and Miracle Water by Margaret Ann Lembo

Do you feel like it will take a miracle to manifest the love of your life? Or perhaps you are ready to infuse new life into an existing partnership? Combine clear intentions with rose quartz and a spritz of Miracle Water daily and watch how true love manifests.

Did you know that the main purpose of the angels and archangels is to be the celestial intermediary between God and humans? Archangels answer prayers. Angels are guardians and watch over us. You can never make a mistake by calling on the wrong angel. While we might perceive that we must call on a very specific angel, like Archangel Chamuel for relationship healing, we can also call on a more generic angel like the Angel of Romance. I’m not sure that there is anything generic about any angel but remember that it is more important to ask for help and pray for guidance than it is to have the right angel on your side. They are all good! Now, let’s manifest a romantic partner.

First step: clarity of intentions. What do you want in your relationship? If you are planning on manifesting a “happily-ever-after” romance, then it’s best to get very specific because you’ll be living with this person for the rest of your life. Establish a clear picture of the type of relationship you want to create. You can gain insights by first knowing what you don’t want in a relationship and then immediately defining the opposite – all the good attributes that will make up the life you will live with your significant other. The more you focus on what you DO want in the relationship and clear out thoughts of what you don’t want, the faster the manifestation will take place.

In this first step, think about the various areas of life and how you would like to experience your relationship. Contemplate how you want your romantic partner to be regarding family, home, daily lifestyles, money management, temperament, travel, circles of friends, spirituality and religion, and health. Take the time to make lists and journal about each area of life. During this process you will get to know yourself better. It is said that intimacy is truly ‘into-me-see’ so be ready to have a mirror of yourself within your life partner.

Second step: Be sure to prepare your life and your space for your life partner. Create space in your life by literally cleaning closets and drawers in your home while imagining how you will share the space with your beloved. Create space in your emotional and mental consciousness. Take the time to journal and use your imagination to visualize and feel what it will be like to have this amazing life companion in your daily experience.

In this second step, you may want to leave an empty drawer and space in your closet that will symbolically send the vibe that you have made room in your life and your sacred space for your forever love. It’s also beneficial to make believe that you’ve already manifested your partner and think about what every morning, noon, and night will be like with them in it.

Third step: Invite the Divine to help you improve your ability to love – to give and receive love. Call on Archangel Chamuel to free you of self-interest and open yourself to look at life as a “we” instead of an “I”. Improve your ability to allow love so that it transcends and transforms yourself so you can move into the vibration of compassion and emotional maturity. Ask for the help to have a strong sense of self-confidence and know that you are worthy of great love in your life.

In this third step, use Rose quartz combined with an affirmation as you invoke Archangel Chamuel. It is very effective to use the gemstone, the aroma-energetic spray – Miracle Water – and an affirmation to help you maintain awareness on your goals and intentions regarding your love life.

Add Miracle Water daily by creating a morning ritual (or any time of day or night) when you spritz Miracle Water on and around you and your space as you visualize the outcome – intend that “this or something better will become manifest for the highest good of all concerned.” Use this affirmation:

I am willing to receive love. The door to my heart is open. I accept the gift of love and attention with ease and grace. I am loving and allow romance in my life.

Heliodor and Metatron: Light Activation

Heliodor and Metatron: Light Activation for Higher States of Consciousness

By Margaret Ann Lembo

Today and every day, it is time to gain clarity and raise your vibration. This is especially true at the beginning of the year to set the tone for higher excellence. The information below is intended to encourage you and prompt you to have the courage to take action toward raising your vibration.

Heliodor, a yellow beryl gemstone, shines a translucent yellow light to aid you in realizing the golden halo that surrounds you and supports your alignment with higher states of consciousness. Invite Archangel Metatron to partner with you to activate your personal ascension process with this stone in hand. As you develop your soul’s evolution, this brilliant gem beams light on your path to help you recognize your path to enlightenment.

Who is Metatron? There are varying interpretations and stories of Metatron. Metatron and Enoch are the same being.  Enoch ascended to heaven and walked with God. Upon his return, he assumed the name Metatron after he was transformed into an archangel. The energy of fire is present in most accounts of the history of Metatron, which represents the powerful energy of transformation. Inviting or invoking the energy of Enoch or Metatron would be of great aid to empower you to help you with discernment, the setting of boundaries, mental clarity, and the power to transform and transmute challenging situations.

During this time on our planet, with the constant bombardment of social media, advertisements, the requirement for instant satisfaction, it is crucial to take the time to integrate and digest all that is happening on a personal world and a global level. Many people run from this thing to the next thing with little regard for the experience of just being. It is imperative to rest to digest. The digestion of food and life requires time to process, contemplate, and clear the mind of incessant chatter and thoughts. Use the gemstone, heliodor, to promote honoring the need to stop, ponder, and integrate life experiences before running to the next thing.

Heliodor provides you with mental clarity. It helps you discern the thought forms, or the mental energy, circling in your mind. As you become consciously aware of your thoughts with the help of this gem, you can discard the outdated thoughts and replace them with thoughts that focus on the life you want to live.

The fiery vibration of heliodor helps burn away negative emotions by shining a bright light into the darkness. Use this stone to improve your personal self-worth and increase your self-esteem. It is a good gem to support relief from depression. It’s time to embrace all that you are and recognize your magnificence. Imagine the sun shining brightly at your solar plexus rejuvenating your self-esteem and courage. You are a bright light with a clear focused mind.

On a physical level, heliodor is helpful for digestive issues. As a solar plexus stone, it helps with proper absorption of nutrients and foods through the digestive process. When used with conscious intention, this stone is beneficial for the healthy functioning of the spleen, pancreas, liver, gall bladder, and the small intestines.

I process everything that is happening around me with ease and understanding. Mentally, I am clear and focused. I visualize my goals and aspirations effortlessly. I am self-assured and step forward in life with confidence and purpose. I am joyful.

Because heliodor is not always readily found at your local rock shop or conscious living gift store, other gems that match this vibration are citrine, golden calcite, golden topaz, sunstone, and amethyst.

Honoring Sacred Space

Do you honor the sacred space of others? Is it easy for you to set boundaries and express them with ease and grace? Do youbalk at the idea of simple rules or do you find yourself offended or above the rules? How easily are your buttons pushed by others and do you take the time to figure out why you are reacting in a childish manner?
What is etiquette? “Etiquette is the customary code of polite behavior in a society or among members of a particular profession or group.” There are the rules established in various spaces because not all beings are trained in situational awareness, or socialized to know or follow protocol or appropriate behavior.

Amber Gemstone Affirmation. Amber is a tool for recalling past lives with the intent to uncover how those memories can help you in your lifenow.

Sometimes policies are created for the well-being of the space and all that enter there. The reasons for policies and procedures aren’t always clear, yet know there is most likely a good reason the policy is put in place.
The home is a sacred space. When a householder states that you must take your shoes off before entering a home, then take your shoes off or don’t enter. A business is a sacred space and policies and procedures as a customer or an employee are to be followed.
For example, if a store owner (like myself) requires that you carry a shopping basket while in the store, then carry the basket or don’t shop in that store. If you are on the line in a store, bank, restaurant, crowded beach, or in any public place, refrain from speaking on your mobile phone or remove yourself from the presence of others. When driving, keep enough space between you and your fellow drivers, follow the rules and etiquette on the road or stay home.
When you find yourself highly insulted by something and you feel very offended by the rules of the sacred space of others, take the time to contemplate the source of the feelings that create that reaction.
When you establish boundaries or clearly state the etiquette of the sacred space, don’t cave in because someone is throwing a tantrum. Rather, step into graceful communication and stay firm with the policy or boundaries that are instituted. Maintain neutral and stay in a state of grace and love when someone is demonstrating that they are challenged because of boundaries that you have set in place.
Love is the ultimate vibration to transform and transmute challenging situations. Stay focused on vibrating love, breathe deeply, and know all is well.
Awaken your consciousness for higher understanding and wisdom.

Aromas and Colors of the Season: Frankincense, Ruby in Zoisite, Archangels Zaphkiel and Uriel

During the holiday season use colors and aromas to help ground yourself and open your heart to receive a river of bejeweled blessings. Ruby in zoisite amplifies the love you give to others and aligns you with your sacred heart and the sacred heart of all beings. Ruby in zoisite helps you shift your perceptions so you can see everything through the eyes of love. The focus is on empathy and kindness.

Use frankincense to bring a sense of calm and inner peace, thereby quieting ruffled emotions and out-of-balance feelings. As frankincense facilitates deep breathing, it also aids in calming hysteria. Frankincense has been a valued resin for over 5,000 years and is traditionally associated with the Three Wise Men, who are believed by some historians to have been Zoroastrian astrologer-priests from Babylon. One of their gifts to the infant Jesus the Christ was frankincense, the ultimate oil or resin for meditation practice.

Frankincense Essential Oil Medical GradeWith ruby in zoisite in hand and the aroma of frankincense, align yourself with compassion, kindness, inner peace, tolerance, higher consciousness, and love. Allow it to increase your awareness of the spiritual and mystical experience of the unity of the universe. Frankincense aligns you with Archangel Zaphkiel (Tzaphkiel) for understanding and mindfulness and with Archangel Uriel for illumination and peace.

Positive intentions for Ruby in Zoisite and Frankincense:

My intention is to live love and to act with compassion and tolerance with every person I encounter. I am aligned with the healing powers of inner peace and kindness. I am able to help others by vibrating love through my presence, words, and actions. I am willing to receive love. The door to my heart is open, allowing blessings to flow into my life. I accept gifts, love, and attention with ease and grace. I am grateful for all that is bestowed upon me.

Yellow Energy and the Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus is the center for your ability to take in, absorb and integrate life and all it offers—the good as well as what you may perceive as the bad. The solar plexus manages the vibration of experiencing and digesting all you see and experience around you and in your life. It can be compared to the powerful and amazing sun shining brightly in the sky. The brilliance of light at this center brings mental clarity and the ability to see life from a greater perspective. It’s a great visual to imagine the sun shining at your solar plexus to warm you up and integrate all that life has to offer.

Marianne Williamson‘s quote below sums up the importance of shining your light and encouraging others to do the same.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. You are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within you. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Gemstones for the solar plexus chakra:

Amber Affirmation: I easily set boundaries with others. I surround myself with people who respect my sacred space. I am protected from the thoughts and feelings of others. I feel nurtured and cared for. I am able to recall past lives when I need a deeper understanding of life and life’s circumstances.




Citrine Affirmation: I am courageous and shine my light brightly. I am very good at setting boundaries. I am confident and realize that people honor and respect me. I am a valued person in society. My digestive system works well and is very healthy. I am mentally clear.
