Archangel Michael, Lapis Lazuli, Sweet Marjoram: Matching Vibrations of Archangels, Gems, and Aromatherapy

Gemstones and essential oils go well together especially when we are setting intentions for various life situations and we want to amplify their power. Add the high vibration of archangels to the mix to increase the power of the associated intention to amplify your desired reality. Use a combination of essential oils and gems and ask for assistance from an archangel to make your life easier and manifest your ability to manifest is improved. Many people are in search of assistance to feel safe, peaceful, and protected. Lapis lazuli is a grounding and protective gemstone. This deep blue gemstone with pyrite inclusions can help you activate the courage to fulfill your dreams and desires while feeling safe and sound. Sweet marjoram essential oil is beneficial to quell paranoia and fears so that you can move forward with your goals. Sweet marjoram essential oil is perfect to maintain a sense of calm and inner peace. Archangel Michael appears to be a favorite in the realm of the archangels. Archangel Michael is ready to guard and guide providing protection upon your request. Just ask for his assistance like you would ask a good friend. Affirm: I am always safe and protected. I have an entourage of archangels who always have my back. It is easy for me to remove obstacles from my path. I move forward with inner peace and grace. Essential oils and gemstone combinations are easy to use in your daily life. Inhalation sweet marjoram, state the affirmations, and visualize the desired result. Wearing the lapis lazuli in a bracelet, pendant, or earrings is effective. Carry a tumbled stone in your pocket or place the gem(s) on your desk or in sight. Every time you look at the gemstone or touch it, bring your awareness back to your intention. Remember, stay focused on what you want with mindfulness and the imagination.

Animal Totems and the Gemstone Kingdom: Spiritual Connections of Crystal Vibrations and Animal Medicine: An Interview with Margaret Ann Lembo

All creatures, great and small, in all species on this planet are interconnected. When an animal, insect, bird, or other creature from nature appears repeatedly, whether in real life or dreams, it is time to pay attention and find the message that nature is bringing you. There are many teachings available to us through the observation of a particular animal totem and their habits and patterns. Every animal is an ally, and every animal has a story to help you find inner peace, knowledge, and wisdom.  

The associated gemstone for each animal totem is a further indication of the energy of the animal as symbolism and a teaching on your sacred journey. Crystals, minerals, and stones hold the history of the Earth and all this planet has to offer you to evolve your soul and spirit in this incarnation. The color, formation, and the manner in which the stone grows in the Earth offers a teaching to know yourself and your life purpose. It takes time and inner reflection to understand the messages and clues throughout the gemstone kingdom.  

These teachings and wisdom are found in Margaret Ann’s new book, Animal Totems and the Gemstone Kingdom: Spiritual Connections of Crystal Vibrations and Animal Medicine, and new deck, Animal Allies and Gemstone Guardians Cards. 

How did you come up with this idea of pairing gems and power animals? 

I’ve worked and played with the gemstones kingdom for over three decades and I often think in “gemstones” and relate everything to the energetic vibration of color and crystals. I realized it was time to marry the wisdom of the animal and gemstone kingdom. I started writing and matching up the animals with the rocks. Everything is energy and has a vibration. I have a tendency to think about life and situations in relation to color, gemstones, and aromatherapy. Over the past couple of decades I have worked with the understanding of life situations through messages from nature, specifically animals and my own power animals. I am blessed to have a constant flow of inspiration being delivered to me all the time. I usually wake up with an idea and then I have no choice but to let it flow forth through me.  

I did quite a bit of research to understand the qualities and mannerisms of animals. I still need to refer to my own book to know about some of the animals. I made the connections and the information flowed because I already know about the power of crystals, minerals, and stones.  My approach to the gemstone world is that they are tools to help focus on the goal and intention. With intention, imagination, and action, we design our reality. 

What is a power animal? What does it mean to have an animal totems or ally?  

The characteristics of animals—from birds and insects to mammals, fish, and reptiles—relate to our human walk on this planet, providing us with lessons and helping us mindfully focus our intentions for our life experiences. Animal medicine offers us a powerful signpost for self-knowledge and clarity on life’s challenges. 

When an animal appears repetitively and significantly in your path – in dreams, in nature, in cinema and TV, and all aspects of life – that animal is specific to that moment in time in your life. When the animal, bird, insect, or fish continues to stay with you during meditative journeys and throughout your life, it becomes your power animal. Recognizing your power animal is very personal and isn’t assigned to you by someone else, but rather through a series of synchronistic circumstances. 

How does one use the beautiful cards in the deck, Animal Allies and Gemstone Guardians Cards?  

My favorite way to use this deck is to pull a card for inspiration or to bring more clarity in a specific area of your life. For example, think about the issue or challenge, shuffle the cards as you focus on something you wish to understand better. Pull a card, read both sides, and contemplate how you can apply the message to your current situation. 

You can pull a day for inspiration and use the affirmation throughout your day. It’s a great way to learn about animal medicine and the meaning of gemstone while you practice thinking good thoughts. 

Add these cards to angel communication sessions and tarot card readings for added insight and direction. Follow the Divine Guidance and repeat the affirmations from animals to transform your reality into joy, wealth, health, protection, and happy relationships. 

 

Are they a better fit for divination or for meditation and contemplation? 

I believe they are a great fit for both! With divination, we often have a desire to confirm and confirm again that we are interpreting the messages correctly. Use the book, Animal Totems and the Gemstone Kingdom, to garner deeper understanding and insights.  

For meditation and contemplation, I recommend to simply open the book and see where the book opens to determine a point of focus for contemplative thought followed by a quiet mind meditation.  

What personal insights could the reader expect to gain from the pairing of the crystals with the animals? 

The associated gemstone for each animal totem is a further indication of the energy of the animal as symbolism and a teaching on your sacred journey. Crystals, minerals, and stones hold the history of the Earth and all this planet has to offer you to evolve your soul and spirit in this incarnation. Matching the teachings of animals and how their symbolism relates to you in your life deepens your understanding of all aspects of life and adds more light to your path. This piece of work will help you become aware of the interconnected energies of everything around you.

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:
