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!

Mary Magdalene Spray is now available at The Crystal Garden

Mary Magdalene’s position as a prominent part of the life of Jesus the Christ came to my awareness during various meditative and contemplative experience. During channeled writing practices, realizations and clues about their first child, Sara, was given to me which prompted me to do research and read more about the hidden texts and gospels. These books provided confirmation that Mary  Magdalene was the wife of Jesus the Christ. Marriage and children were expected of a Jewish man. 

There are texts that have been uncovered that confirm Jesus’ marriage to Mary Magdalene and the birth of their children. Historical data and historical novels document this information which offers a higher level of awareness for Mary Magdalene’s role as the wife of Jesus the Christ. 

Over the years I’ve traveled to Sacred Sites where it’s been said by the local people know that Mary Magdalene and Jesus the Christ have traveled after the crucifixion. One of these locations is Saintes Maries de la Mer in southern France. The Church of the Saintes Maries de la Mer was one of the two churches that showed me evidence via photos and murals depicting the arrival of pregnant Mary Magdalene via boat with a Roman soldier and (what I perceived to be) Jesus the Christ. There is much more to be said about this Holy Couple’s arrival to Europe and other locations after the crucifixion, but I will leave this here.

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.
