Getting Ready for 2008

I'm still cleaning. The "sanitation engineers" will be duly impressed with the amount of stuff we will be putting at the curb tonight. I even had the carpet and upholstery cleaned at my house today. It feels really good to see the results. The upholstery on the couches and club chair will take 8 hours to dry, but who cares? My sweetheart and I will spend a quiet evening enjoying each other's company. It would have been nice to have a few friends over but I waited a bit too long to invite them

The other tools for clearing out old stale energy besides good old fashion decluttering and soap and water is using smudging products. Many like to use sage and other smoking products. It works well, but what if you don't want your house to be smoky? You can try using essential oils in combination and still get the same affect. I use a blend that I created called Smudge in Spray: Pray and Spray which combines essential oils, sacred sites essences, Florida Water and much more . . . Love and Blessings! I encourage you to make your own version. If you don't want to or don't know where to start, you can always get mine. It's available online or go get it at The Crystal Garden.

The whole point is smudging, whether using smoking products or essential oils, is to clear out negative thoughtforms that accumulate energetically in your space. Everything has a vibration and those vibrations will stay - good or bad - until you consciously move them out. The oils or plants to use are sage, cedar, frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, pine, lemon and many more. All these oils are available at my store or go to your local metaphysical or New Age bookstore. Support your local store! I know I appreciate it when my customers buy locally . . . at my place.

I'm sending our new logo The Crystal Garden angel your way with blessings!
Please post your comments. Tell me what your New Year rituals are! I would love to hear from you.

Cleaning Spree, Chicken Soup and Aromatherapy

It must be the energy of removing old energy because I am on a cleaning spree. I just had the carpets and rug cleaned at The Crystal Garden. It sure does make for a nice ritual to clean out the old before the New Year. I love the feeling of things being fresh and clean. I've got to get around to making that happen at my house too!

My sweetheart is starting to recover from a cold/flu. It gave me the opportunity to nurture which I love to do and he is a willing recipient. I made chicken soup which always makes the house smell so good. And speaking of things smelling good, I used quite a bit of aromatherapy on him too. First, Auntie M's Anti. It's my personal blend that I created a few years ago because a friend of mine couldn't kick her flu. It was the creation of this and a few other aromatherapy blends that helped in coining the nickname, "Magic Margaret." Auntie M's Anti has oils that are anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-septic, anti-fungus and anti-anything-that's-not-good-for you! I always use it on the airplane by putting it under my nose on a hankie or tissue. It's calming and anti-everything!

I continued to use quite a bit of aromatherapy. My naturopath friend taught me that putting the essential oil on the souls of your feet is effective in getting it through your system. Other oils to use for colds are ravensara, eucalyptus, thyme, and there are many more. I will be teaching an Aromatherapy Course at The Crystal Garden in February.

Well, I think it's time to watch a movie and rest for a change. Rest and relaxation . . . hmmmmm . . . a novel idea!
Angel Blessings!

Dreams do come true!

So, the Crystal Singing Bowl Meditation experience went well last night. There were nine of us and we all had different things that we were focusing on to bring into reality. There are some regulars that attend. I'll change the names here, but, Robin comes everytime I offer the event. She's been having great experiences and always leaves feeling all tuned up.

You know, everything is energy. And all energy vibrates. And all vibration has sound. Well, we each have a vibration that sounds either harmonious or . . . not! When we re-calibrate our chakras back to the note that they were intended to be sounding like, it helps us walk on this planet in alignment with our highest good.

I've heard great testimonials. One client manifest her car and her Yoga Studio within days of attending this event. I've been working on getting my CDs into Whole Foods and finally they are in 5 Whole Foods in Florida. Step by step . . . inch by inch . . . with the power of visualizaion, imagination and believing, anything is possible!

So whether you want higher self-esteem, better meditation experiences, more love in your life, money, guidance . . . whatever your desire, you can achieve! Ra! Ra! Sis-koom-BA! (That was my cheerleader Angel, chirping in. I guess she's "on duty" this morning.

Have a fabulous day and let me know what you want and we'll "abra ca dabra" it!

What is your heart's desire?

It's that time again to set those New Year's resolutions. Hmmmm . . . . what shall I focus on? Have you asked yourself that question?

Post and share what dreams you wish to manifest!

Clearing out the old and ringing in the new year!

I'm ringing out the old AND ringing in the New Year. Who knew I'd be playing these Crystal Singing Bowls on a regular basis?! It just goes to show you that you never know when one thing leads to another.

I remember that back in the mid-90's I bought my first Crystal Bowl. It's in the closet in a box now. I hardly use that one because it's quite big and harder to handle, carry and transport. Now I have a set of 7 Crystal Singing Bowls that travel easily because they nestle within each other. This set is also tuned to each other so it's a nice transition from one bowl to the next. When I first started using them, it was one of those ideas that popped into my head, probably from one of my muses or angels. (I'll address the difference between muses and angels in a separate post.) I was already providing guided mediations and crystal alignments, but using the crystal singing bowls was whole other variation on the theme. Wow! Did I find out how powerful a thought can be!? You betcha!

As life evolved, I started offering the Crystal Singing Bowl Meditations with every New Moon to help myself and others manifest our heart's desires. Voila! It works! Attendees have had fabulous results. So eventually I created a CD so people can do the meditation at home and now I travel with my bowls to other stores, yoga studios and centers to offer this meditation and manifestation tool.

I'm off to The Crystal Garden to offer the meditation tonight. I figured it's a great way to let go of the old year and start out the new. Talk about "ringing in the the New Year!" What a great way to do it. Is is old age or New Age? Who cares, as long as it helps and makes you feel happy and full of Love, Light and Well-Being.
