We are up to the new Crystal Oracle deck now! And you will just fall over from hysteria when you see what the first one turned out to be. I Laughed Out Loud. Loudly. But it’s a good one, they all are. I have not read the entire book, nor have I examined every card, I like to enjoy them along with you, so they will be as new to me as they are to everyone else. Here is how the guidebook starts off:
“Crystals are basically minerals that over huge spans of time (ranging from thousands to millions of years), have crystalized through a combination of pressure and extremely high temperature. They are found in most parts of the world, either on the earth’s surface or buried deep within. It is amazing when you think that any crystals you may possess are thousands of years old.
It has long been believed that crystals are able to store information and can also be programmed for certain specific purposes. This is an interesting theory especially when you realise that quartz is used in computers and other electronic products for that very purpose.”
He includes some really informative history and his own ideas on usage. He also talks about the truth of unconditional love, the universal thoughts around the world, and the healing properties these bits of earth have exhibited for centuries. This is going to be a really cool deck for us, and I am so glad it found me.
“Petrified Wood ~ standing the test of time, transformation, strength.
True wisdom stands the test of time because it stems from the eternal part of our nature – the soul. A magical transformation is about to occur through an unexpteced turn of events. This is all the result of the strength and commitment you have long shown towards something you truly believe in. It will soon be time to accept your reward – knowing you were right after all. The strength and committment you have shown for so long will serve you well. Many who have, until now, either ridiculed you or attempted to discredit you, will all of a sudden want to jump on your side.
It is possible to stand firm in your beliefs, yet also to show compassion toward others.”
There are 44 different cards, and I think each one is just going to be so fascinating. I don’t know a whole lot about this divination method, but I’m sure it will be way fun to for us to learn this way.
In erranding news, Daniel and I saw the perfect example of what I had just recently mentioned in the comments. Incorrectly placed stickers.
When the DMV sends these to us in the envelope, there are also frighteningly clear and simple instructions. So really, there is no excuse for this type of thing. (Gah! Shit like this absolutely makes my freaking head explode.) We noticed a Massachusetts car that we drove by last week, also coming home from grocery shopping, so I don’t think it’s gonna count any longer. Earlier we had seen one from New Mexico, but that was it. We were thinking it would be a very slow foreign day, when we then spotted: NEW HAMPSHIRE!
(I wanted him to stop or pull over so I could get a picture, but he was all concerned about not running down some kids on skateboards, and traffic backing up behind us. Jeez, whatever!)
Time for the healing portion of this post. I made a quick mention of it over at Lucy’s earlier, but I wanted everyone to be aware, as well as ask for any thoughts, prayers, good vibes, focused intentions, or other assorted Magickal aspects that could be helpful. You remember how, many years ago, I found the perfect husband for Dan’s sister Michelle? Well, our beautiful Bruce has been dealing with an on-going medical issue that brought him back to the hospital yesterday. We need him to be all better, and all healed, and all Bruce again. As soon as possible.
I also received this letter from Lora today:
“My blog is broken for some reason and I’m about to make my second trip into the hospital with kidney infection that I’ve fought for ten days with three separate antibiotics. There’s lots of unbelievable back pain even with meds and i would like to request vibes and prayers.
P.S. according to exam and doppler, Sweet Pea is fine.”
So, let’s focus shall we JulieLanders? Harness that power of the earth and all those crystals. We need for Bruce to be back on his feet, feeling fabulous, mentally and physically returned to perfect health. We need Lora and her Baby Diva to heal, to be free of pain, and glow with their own perfect wellness and health. Let’s use our new message of strength. Let’s prove the test of time and truth, in our intentions of bringing about miracles of speedy recovery and rejuvenation, for the health of our family, friends, and loved ones.
