Remove Obstacles Attract Blessings: Saints, Deities, Aromatherapy and Gems

Remove Obstacles Attract Blessings: Saints, Deities, Aromatherapy and Gems

By Margaret Ann Lembo

Do you want to make changes, but inner voices keep telling you that you can’t? Are you convincing yourself that you are blocked or stuck?

There is always hope. Call on saints or deities as allies to help you energetically with what seems to be hopeless. With focus, prayers, and faith, every situation can be shifted from despair to well-being. Make the decision and envision life as you wish it to be. Everything is a choice. And, yet, we often need help to overcome the darker hurdles on our path.

When you are feeling despair St. Jude is one you can call on. St. Jude is often considered the patron saint of hope and lost causes. Quiet your mind, send off a prayer to petition the aid of St. Jude Thaddeus when you feel that all is lost and there is no way out.

In the Hindu tradition, Ganesha is the elephant-headed god, son of Shiva and Parvati, is widely recognized as the destroyer of obstacles and a bringer of good fortune. Ganesha is the perfect ally to ask for help when you find yourself believe that you have a block or too many obstacles. Stories differ on how exactly he came to have an elephant’s head. Most believe that Shiva, his father, cut off his human head, without knowing it was his son, and replaced it with that of an elephant to save him.

In addition to calling on and invoking saints and deities, add aromatherapy and crystals to your entourage of allies. Use vibrational matching essential oils and gemstones to amplify your focus and intention to overcome life’s challenges. It’s helpful to remember that everything is temporary. Nothing is permanent. Trials and tribulations pass more quickly when we realize and remember that we have the ability to transform and transmute any challenge that arises with faith and focus.

Incorporate scents like amber and lemon to strengthen your personal power and core beliefs in positive outcomes.

Inhale deeply and let these fragrances and let these fragrances be your ally to help you know that the obstacles in your path will be cleared soon and the way will be revealed.

Wear gemstone jewelry with amber, citrine, and/or amethyst. You can also carry these gems in your pockets or a little gem bag. Or strategically place them around your home and/or office where you will glance upon them naturally. Gemstones are your ally, too, so you can overcome the hurdle with focused intention, prayer, and faith.  

Combine these matching vibrations of St. Jude, Ganesha, amber fragrance, lemon essential oil (or citrus scented perfumes), and gemstones like amber, amethyst, and citrine (golden topaz and golden calcite work well, too) to amplify your focus on your desired outcome. Practice repeating positive affirmations and strengthen your internal belief. Know that you can easily resolve the current difficulty and visualize the outcome that your heart desires.

Here are a few affirmations to get you started:

Power and strength are mine.

It is safe for me to be powerful in loving ways.

I transform challenges with ease.

I release what is no longer for my highest good.

I am confident.

Though there were numerous obstacles in life, there is always the option to overcome difficulties and turn overwhelming situations into positive learning experiences that instill wisdom. Practice gratitude and count your blessings!

Challenging Transformations with Amethyst

There are cycles when life is just plain challenging. It seemingly comes out of nowhere but in reality, the challenges are often the result of complacency. Eventually, the cosmic two-by-four will essentially knock you upside the head to get you to pay attention and wake up! This two-by-four is ultimately a huge gift in personal development which opens the door to a positive transformation. The challenging experiences come in various forms depending on your personal life circumstances. Grab a piece of amethyst – or a pile of amethyst – and work with the positive vibrations of purple crystalline structure to restore your life and your equilibrium.

Amethyst is great for changing any situation. Use it when you are having trouble with friends or any difficult situation. The truth is that you can always change your life. It starts with changing your thoughts and your perception of reality. Focus on gratitude and use amethyst for mindfulness when you repetitively misunderstand others or are being misunderstood.

Take the time to contemplate what you want your life to be like and to feel like. With amethyst in hand or nearby, put your attention on the needed changes. Focus all of your awareness on what it will take to get those changes to happen. Then, do it!  

Imagine the color purple flowing around you as you reinvent your life experiences. Use amethyst to think clearly and intelligently, access your intuition, answers you need, and balance your mind.

Use this Amethyst Positive Thought Affirmation:

“I see, sense, feel and know life is magical. I release all habits no longer for my highest good. I have a great connection with my spirit guides and angels. I am very intuitive. I trust my feelings. It’s easy for me to take action to create the life I want to experience.”

Animal Ally Dragonfly and Vibrational Matching Stone Amethyst Cathedral

Are there situations in your life where the truth needs to be revealed? Are you ready to break through the illusions that others have erected, or perhaps the illusions you’ve created? It’s time for you to work through the emotions that create misconceptions, both for yourself and those that you create for others. 

Dragonfly totem is an ally to help you see life with great clarity and take action. Dragonflies have extraordinary eyesight and quick, agile flight. The power of Dragonfly helps you sort reality from illusion. If you are caught up in illusion, Dragonfly’s energy can assist you in seeing the situation clearly and help you take speedy appropriate action. 

When Dragonfly appears in your life, it is time to awaken and recognize your emotions and feelings and then take rapid action to create the life you want. Ask yourself, “What do I want?” Define your desires and take action. 

Call on Dragonfly’s vibration in order to be awake in life. Regardless of the daily illusions you may hold dear, you have the power to transport yourself out of that perception and fly higher in order to see life from a greater perspective. 

Use amethyst to envision yourself in the life you want to create as if it already exists. Create the illusion of actualization and manifestation, and surround it with the violet light of amethyst. Envision the situation changing to what you do want, versus how it currently is. 

Use this affirmation to help you deepen your understanding of life as you transform your reality: 

I am ready to transform my life into one filled with truth and clarity. My emotions are balanced. It’s easy for me to transform and transmute challenging situations. I pay attention to my dreams, interpret them, and take action based on my findings. My understanding of symbols helps increase my self-awareness.
