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 blankamethyst, 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 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.”

Crystal Intentions Oracle: Guidance and Affirmations

Crystals and gemstones are tools for focusing your thoughts on your intentions and goals. Use crystals alongside two other key tools: visualization and imagination.

Mindful Manifestation with Crystals and Gemstones by Margaret Ann Lembo


Are you ready to improve your ability to create your world as you want it to be? Ask yourself, “Am I fulfilled and happy?” If the answer isn’t a resounding, “YES!” then it’s time to awaken. Mindfulness is key to improve your spiritual and personal life. As you strive for personal growth, become self-aware. Start the self-awareness journey by becoming conscious of all the thoughts going through your mind.

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is being aware of your thoughts and consciously choosing which thoughts you allow into your mind. You create your reality with every thought, word, and action including outside influence. Outside influences include your choices of entertainment, reading, and music as well as conversations that you participate in. Your mind and intention design your days and your life.

Crystals and gemstones have been used for millennia to help with meditation and mindful manifestation. Crystals are tools that provide you with the ability to maintain mindfulness with focused intention. Crystals and gemstones are transformative tools that are found all throughout the world. They can help you in your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical personal development. Based on metaphysical principles, they can assist you in staying focused on your intentions to create and maintain positive change in your life. With the right vibrational matching gemstone nearby you have some help to remember to focus on what you DO want, instead what you don’t want in your life’s experiences.

Everything is energy, and all energy has a vibration. Crystals also have energy and vibration, and their vibration is based on the stone’s color and the manner in which the stone formed in the earth. Each and every stone has a spiritual component to help you further develop your spiritual connection. Likewise, each stone has a mental use that aids in maintaining mental focus and clarity, an emotional use that can help you deal with feelings and unblock underlying challenges, and physical uses that range from supporting the healing of your physical body to helping you fulfill your physical needs such as money and career.

To choose the crystal that best fits your positive thoughts and intentions for the purpose of amplifying your intention, simply look at your collection of crystals (and gemstone jewelry if you have some) as you stay focused on your goal. Get clear on your intention. Which stone or color does your eye naturally gravitate toward? Pick that gemstone and formalize your intention.


As an example, if your intention is to have more financial security, then try using a pyrite cube with a matching affirmation. Use pyrite to help strengthen courage and self-confidence. Such strength is needed to allow yourself to manifest money in your life through your creative efforts. Pyrite often forms in cubes and therefore has a geometrical connection to creating a strong foundation for anything you do.

Repeat this statement often and visualize the outcome.

There are plenty of people with plenty of money who want the goods and/or services that I offer. I’m self-motivated and strong. I am determined to follow through on the next best thing. I am productive. My confidence is rock solid. I focus on my intentions and take positive action to manifest my goals.

Do you believe that you build your reality? Start by recognizing that you do design your reality! Increase your ability through creativity and action for success in all endeavors, including financial success, fertility, creativity, family blessings, happy home, healthy body, and much more. Visualize your dreams as if they have already been realized. Create a strong foundation. Be determined and confident enough to make the necessary steps to build the life of your dreams. Pyrite is a stone of financial abundance. Use this stone with intention when you are trying to improve your financial status. Draw on its gold energy while you take action to increase your monetary wealth.
