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!

Saints and Souls

Today we celebrate All Saints Day and tomorrow All Soul’s Day. It is believed that All Saints Day started during the 7th century by Pope Boniface IV who officially established the day to honor all saints and ask them for guidance.

 All Souls Day is a day to pray for the dead. The Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is celebrated the day after All Saints Day. All Souls Day was established during the 10th century by Saint Odilo who proposed this day would honor the departed. Most celebrated by Christians, there has been evidence that it dates to 3000 years ago before Christianity. Día de los Muertos it is primarily celebrated in Latin communities.

 

I have always been fascinated with the lives of saints. This fascination led me to develop the Masters, Mystics, Saints & Gemstone Guardians Cards. Today I thought it only fitting to highlight some of the saints from the deck.

 Masters, Mystics, and Saints still share their energy and messages. Matching the vibration of these teachers with crystals, minerals, and stones provide guidance and messages of hope, happiness, and well-being. The Gemstone Guardians are the devic force of the gemstone that add energetic assistance in achieving goals and desires through color and geometric structure of the stone.

On each of the cards contained in this deck is a question for contemplative thought, Divine Guidance, and a positive affirmation.

 

From the back of the card – the following

Have you been getting outdoors often enough?

Are You spending time reconnecting with nature?

Get outside and dig your hands into the earth. Garden, play in the grass with animals, walk in nature, and allow the ground beneath your feet and the sun above your head to nurture and realign you.

 

 

 

 

From the back of the card – the following

Do you feel the presence of the Divine Mother?

Do you seek comfort and motherly love?

 

 

 

 

Align with grace and the ever-present vibration of compassion, kindness, and mercy. Decide to release issues and vibrate at a rate that emanates peace, love, and well-being Open your mind to allow miracles beyond your dreams to manifest.

 

 

 

Tomorrow we remember and pray for our loved ones that have crossed over. It is a time to reflect on their legacy and the contribution they have made in our lives. 

 

With love and gratitude,
