The Pathfinder: Awakening New Beginnings with Colors and Gems

The Pathfinder: Awakening New Beginnings with Colors and Gems
By Margaret Ann Lembo

As we enter another cycle through the wheel of life every spring, it provides extra energy for that part of you that is ready to begin something new with a fiery passion. Use this time of year to reactivate your confidence, enthusiasm, and passion for life. You don’t need to wait to do this when spring arrives because this vibration is available every day at sunrise. If you desire to get things moving in your life, here are a few gems that can support you because of the color and vibration.

Ammonite fossils, spiral-shaped (ram-horn) calcite fossilized shells, symbolically connects you with the power of the ram that represents power, strength, and the willingness to forge forward.

Carnelian, light to dark red variety of chalcedony, is a vibrational match for people who know how to get things started, and it helps with the energy to get the task completed.

Garnet and ruby carry the vibration of passion and determination. They activate your innate ability to catapult you toward your full potential.

Golden calcite is associated with part of you that believes you can achieve anything you put your mind to, and golden color of calcite can help with clarity of mind and feelings to remember your magnificence.

Red jasper is associated with energy and enthusiasm. Use red energy when you need an extra push to finish what you started.

You can choose to use the colors, orange, yellow and red, instead of or in addition to the colorful gems listed above. Wear clothes in this color range and take a mindful notice to these colors in your diet. Form the intention to be mindful and aware of your desire to improve confidence, enthusiasm, and a passion for life every time you look at and interact with this range of color to help you transform and improve your life.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Aries is the first astrological sign of the zodiac cycle and the ruler of the first house of the astrological chart. The first house is known as the ascendant, the sign that was rising at the moment of your birth. The first house is the house of beginnings, your view of the world, and your personality. Aries is a cardinal sign, its planetary ruler is Mars, and its symbol is the ram. The other cardinal signs are Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Cardinal signs in the zodiac are the ones that start each of the seasons.

Aries is the sign that starts spring. The element associated with Aries is Fire and those born under this sign tend to have a fiery nature. The key phrase for Aries is “I am.” Aries are typically determined, confident, enthusiastic, and passionate. Aries may also be a bit impatient, aggressive, and possibly short-tempered. Aries are great leaders and are excellent at starting things. They have the ability to be pioneers and pathfinders. On a health level, Aries need to pay attention to anything to do with the head, like headaches or sinus challenges. It’s best for Aries to be mindful around insects, as they have a tendency to attract insect bites and stings.

Use aromatherapy to accentuate the positive aspects of this zodiac sign with my spray, Aries by The Crystal Garden Brand.

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.
