Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Jewel Within A Teardrop
Jewel Within A Teardrop: “Appreciation, Spiritual and emotional reconnection.”
“You will soon experience a strong spiritual and emotional bond with another person, a family member, an animal or pet. During this time you will also reconnect with your inner most feelings and true nature which have been suppressed or ignored of late. This is a deeply emotional time where tears of sadness transform to tears of joy. Your appreciation of life, love and friendships will strengthen as you give thanks for the many blessings in your life. Love is truly all around you – embrace i, cherish it and honour it. You and those you love unite through a common bond and the love you feel for one another grows stronger and more profound. This is a special and magical time, be sure to savour each and every moment. Love is all that really matters.
I am one with my higher self
I am in touch and in tune with my innermost feelings
I am blessed
I am spiritually connected to those I love
I am loved.”*
We are all connected, to the Earth, to each other and to all the life around us. We come from the same creator, the same universe, the same energy; and it’s source is love. If we spent more time trying to connect to this powerful source of love, and less time fighting over what we should name it; who’s label is right and who’s wrong; the world would be a very different place. Unfortunately, we often measure people by their differences from us; different culture, different colour, different customs. What is we were to see everyone with compassion; seeing the connection we all share? How would that change how you felt about someone from a different culture or background? Who makes different choices every day than you do about what to wear, what to eat and who to love?
If we practice love in every day life, it comes with acceptance and non judgement. It means taking people for what they have to offer and not trying to change them into someone that fits better with what you think they should be. This means fully accepting yourself first, so that you can clear any doubts about your own worthiness. It means loving in the face of adversity and conflict; of surpassing stress with love and light. It’s possible, we just have to be open and willing.
Start by clearing your chakras, and getting your energy clear and flowing though your meridians. A great meditation for this is Doreen Virtues’s Chakra Clearing book which includes a Meditation CD; you can listen to a morning and evening meditation. This meditation will help to clear any blocked energy that you have been holding on to, and align your meridians. This in turn will help you feel more receptive, loving, and free. Working with crystals during your chakra mediation can also help to raise your vibration and unblock any old, unwanted low vibrational energies.
Here is a list of the crystals suggested for the chakras, you can often buy chakra sets that include the stones you need for a very reasonable price:
Starting with 1st Chakra Root with Garnet or Bloodstone (red),
2nd Chakra Sacral with Carnelian or Yellow Tigers Eye (orange),
3rd Chakra Solar Plexus with Citrine (yellow),
4th Chakra Heart with Green Tourmaline, Aventurine or Rose Quartz (green),
5th Chakra Throat with Turquoise, Amazonite or Blue Lace Agate (Light blue),
6th Chakra Third Eye with Amethyst, Sodalite or Clear Quartz (Dark blue or Violet),
and 7th Chakra Crown with Chevron Amethyst or Clear Quartz (White or Light Violet).
Experiment with the crystals, placing them on your chakras during the meditation and being mindful of how your body feels before and after. Visualize your chakras spinning and brightly lit as they clear all the negative energy. Cleanse your crystals after using to clear your chakras by placing them in a plant over night, preferably outside and repeat often to keep your energy centers clear. If you are clear, you are happier, healthier, and more capable of giving and receiving love to and from those around you.
