Spring Cleaning - Round 2

After writing about spring cleaning in a previous post, I became self-motivated to actually practice what I preach. Now my garage is in the process of transformation. I feel the true inspiration to clean the garage was staying at my cousin's house overnight. She is impeccable with her cleanliness and organization of all of her things. I am so impressed by her on so many levels yet specifically tidiness, cleanliness and organization for the purposes of this post. Sleeping in that organized vibration must have seeped into my bones and my consciousness because all I've wanted to do since I've stayed there is clean, organize and throw out that which is not longer needed (or give it away!)


Yesterday, Vincent and I did a clean sweep of the garage. I've watched the experts on HGTV and Oprah enough times to know the process. We've established what's to be thrown away and it's gone. We've established what is to be given away and it's gone. We established what's staying and some went to storage and now the rest is being organized. Organization and cleaning is what is left for today. The heaviest part of it is done now.


From an energetic view point, we are cleaning and organizing the specific areas of life. While I'm cleaning I also try to stay connected with the intention of improving the flow, balance and well-being of these areas of life based on the bagua as used in Feng Shui:

(Graphic is from http://www.fengshuipalace.com/bagua.php click on it to see it better and to go to this person's site.)

  • Relationships and Love

  • Creativity and Children

  • Helpful People and Travel


I'm not a Feng Shui expert yet I am an enthusiast of the ancient art of moving energy with intention. As we continue to clean, organize and shift, I am sure I'll see the effects in all of these areas. I'll let you know what evolves!

Gemstone Do-Over!


My last post had a bit of trouble with the font. I'm not sure what I did to make that happen. Here is the information in a font and size you can read!


Selenite helps to align you with higher consciousness. As you develop spiritually it is beneficial to allow yourself to listen to or sense guidance from your higher self, spirit guides or angels. This stone opens the crown chakra to receive transmissions of information and wisdom. On a physical level it helps with the spine, bone and muscular structure of the body. Selenite is a white stone, though recently I have found red selenite (it looks orange to me) that can re-align the emotional structure of one’s consciousness.


Charoite is a stone that helps to open your consciousness to higher spiritual thought. The purple coloring aids in protection on all levels and for the transformation and transmutation of negativity. The negativity it transforms is not only from outside sources but also from your own negative thoughts that you may not even be aware of. Therefore, charoite is an excellent stone to help you become more conscious in general. As you become more conscious you are able to step onto your spiritual path and consciously move forward assisting others on their path.


Jade is good fortune and good luck. Everything about this stone is good. It promotes loyalty, financial success, synchronicity, excellent health and anything else you can associate with love, joy, happiness and success. The green energy promotes overall well being. Carry this always!


Rhodochrosite opens the heart to give and receive love. You may feel that you are a loving person and yet I would like to have you ask yourself how you are about receiving love, attention and blessings. You may think you are good at receiving yet how do you feel about receiving and allowing loving relationships, close connections, intimate relationships and trusting in the full process of love and relationships. This stone is not just about romantic love but the kind of friendships that are balanced, deep and fulfilling. If you are having some challenges with allowing friends or family into your heart and your physical sacred space then you may want to bring some of the pink energy of rhodochrosite into your energy field. Life is too short to keep people at arm’s distance. Open your heart and allow love!


Amber comes in various shades of golden yellow. It is actually petrified pine resin. Amber helps to allow the energies of love and closeness as mentioned above while still maintaining the appropriate levels of boundaries in relationships. There is a fine balance in combining your energy fields with others. Amber helps maintain a healthy balance by protecting you from energy vampires. It cleanses your aura. Amber is also a balancer of self-esteem and self-confidence. Experiment with these and other gemstones for yourself. Remember, it is the power of your intention, positive thoughts as well as the color, vibration and mineral content that effectuate the change you want in your life.

Crystals and Gemstones

Crystals and gemstones have been used throughout the ages to improve various human conditions. The color and mineral composition lend energy to improving situations from headaches to digestion on a physical level and love loss or mood imbalances on an emotional level. But these rocks don’t stop with just the physical or the emotional aspects of our lives. Crystals and gemstones can help us mentally and spiritually as well. By using your intention combined with the inherent qualities, color and vibration of the gemstone, you can transform any situation with determination and focus. Gemstones are a tool just like you would use a hammer to effectively put a nail into a wall, gemstones help integrate and align you with the intention that you have decided to put into your consciousness and make manifest in the world.

The color and vibration of each of the gemstones relate to and balance one or more of the chakras. There are seven basic energy centers within and around you known as chakras. Each of these energy centers regulates aspects of yourself on a physical, spiritual, mental and emotional level. You want to keep these energy centers in alignment to maintain overall health and well-being. Using a color or chakra meditation is helpful as well as the use of gemstones.
Using gemstones is easy.


Simply carrying the stone in your pocket or purse and touching it from time to time during the day brings your awareness back to your goal or intention. Placing it in your pillow case at night or on your desk where you can see it is another way incorporates it in your life. A tumbled gemstone is small enough to carry in your pocket or put into your pillow case without weighing you down. They are pretty and affordable, too! Of course, wearing gemstone jewelry like a necklace, bracelet or earrings is very effective and attractive as well. Here are a few gemstones you may want to consider.

Selenite helps to align you with higher consciousness. As you develop spiritually it is beneficial to allow yourself to listen to or sense guidance from your higher self, spirit guides or angels. This stone opens the crown chakra to receive transmissions of information and wisdom. On a physical level it helps with the spine, bone and muscular structure of the body.

Babysitting and Pictures of my Children

Vincent and I had the pleasure of babysitting for my cousins. We adored our time with a 2 year old and a 4 year old. What their parents don't know is that we let them get away with so much! But that's what their "Aunt Margaret and Uncle Vincent" do when they come for a short overnight stay. Actually, the worst of it - or the best depending on perspective - was the splashing in the tub. When it was all done, I needed to be put in the dryer and no mop would absorb the level of water that went all over the master bathroom. But when Uncle Vincent made the hurricane come in the bathtub - the winds were so high that water escaped. We all laughed so hard and had such a great time!
My children are different. I have furry and feathered children. I just posted a video of Sha Nay on Facebook. Here are photos of Gabrielle - my 19 year old cat, Sha Nay - my 18 year old macaw parrot, and Mikael - my 19 year old white dove.

Space Clearing

If you wish, clear your space energetically through the use of sacred herbs or pure essential oils and flower essences. The use of smudge is a ceremonial process using herbs, such as sage, cedar, osha, and lavender buds, and resins, such as frankincense, myrrh, and copal. Using these sacred plants and resins does a spiritual house cleaning to clear out old thought forms, past arguments, and negative emotions, and smokes out other uninvited “house guests” from your space. Some of the herbs invite blessings and love to replace that which was cleared.

You can also use essential oils such as lavender, sage, sweet marjoram, pine, and frankincense, along with Holy Water or say prayers of love and well-being into the water yourself to create your own Holy Water. Then add flower essences or sacred site essences to the mix, which also assists in the clearing process. Use the mixture in a spray bottle, then pray into your walls and spray this special mixture around your space to clear out the negative and refill that space with love and well-being. You've seen my posts for Smudge in Spray which is the smokeless alternative to what I am talking about here.

Regardless of which method you choose, and there are many more, be sure that the focus remains on clearing out the negative and replacing that space with love!

As you do this, you will begin to observe the magical manifestation of your actions in the world around you. You will have the clarity to see what relationships may no longer work and the courage to take the action necessary to rectify it. You will have the space to create that new baby or to write that book. You will have the energy to integrate an exercise program because the old energy is no longer weighing you down. You will have created the space to allow for new friendships to develop or a new beloved to enter your life. If you build it, they will come. Build your field of dreams and be sure you have weeded and cleared the land first, so you begin with a fresh new place to plant the seeds of your life.

May we have the motivation to take the first step to clearing out the old stagnant things and energies of our life. May we honor ourselves enough to make our space clear, clean, magical, and loving. May we respect ourselves so that we have the courage to let go of relationships that do not respect us. May we always remember to put Love into every action we take, whether it is letting go of what no longer honors us or inviting in the new magical manifestations that we create.

Tools to Awaken Consciousness

I've been on a roll creating air sprays. A friend of mine who creates amazing jewelry, http://www.dreamseeds.com/, inspired me to create sprays to match some of her series of jewelry.

As inspiration flowed in our conversation because of her own children, I ended up creating a spray for children first. The intention for the spray is to chase away things that go bump in the night and make kids afraid of the dark. It's also for the dilemma of falling asleep at night when known and unknown fears arise. So I decided this spray is also for adults. I included ingredients that assist is releasing the fear of darkness as well as the fear of having nightmares. So, the spray is complete! It's called Guardian Angel Spray for Children . . . and adults too! Here is a rough first draft of the label.


Guardian Angel Spray for Children
. . . And adults too!

Use this spray to bring pleasant dreams, invoke angels to guard you while you sleep, and bring liquid light to chase away things invisible in the night. Spray it around you and your space. Remember you are always surrounded by Angels of Love and Light!

Ingredients: Water, Mandarin, Orange, Lime, Angelica, Benzoin, Vanilla Extract, Chalice Well Water from Glastonbury, England, Spring Water from Mother Mary’s home in Anatolia, Ephesus, Turkey, Bach Flower Mimulus and Rock Rose Essence, Gemstone Tinctures of Kunzite, Selenite, Amethyst and Apophyllite.
Made with Love by Margaret Ann Lembo. For External Use Only


Notice that I've added Bach Flower Essences and Gemstone Tinctures to this spray. That then inspired me to continue on to make another special request spray. It's called Awaken Consciousness Spray. It's still int he prototype phase so I'll keep you in the loop so you'll know when it's ready. Here is part of the label (I've left the ingredients out for right now because I'm still testing it.)

Spiritualizing Spring Cleaning

As we move through the ever-turning wheels of the seasons, we enter a new year of the zodiac. When the Sun enters Aries, we celebrate the Spring Equinox and the return of a new life. Here we have a chance for another new beginning, just as we did at the New Year because of our calendar system. We also have the same opportunity with every New Moon, 13 times a year.

How do we prepare for new beginnings? Clear out the old, worn out, or no longer useful to prepare for the new.

So how can you clean and clear your space in anticipation of the arrival of the new in your lifes? It is actually quite simple. You must first find the courage to let go of what is worn out, negative, or not honoring and serving you anymore. It is like an old pair of sneakers that feel so comfortable that we won’t throw it away. Are those sneakers still supporting your feet, legs, and back as best as they could or have they long since passed their usefulness? These are the questions we must ask ourselves literally, regarding physical things in our lives, and metaphorically, regarding our friendships, jobs, and other relationships.

Aaaah . . . and letting go or breaking up is so hard to do!

There is some magic about moving the energy by cleaning our space and our lives. When we clear out what is no longer for our highest good, it opens a creative vacuum to allow for fabulous things to enter in. Are you trying to start something new or manifest something in your life and you feel stuck? Try clearing the clutter of your life and watch the magic happen around you.

Start by cleaning with consciousness, or in other words, clean and clear with intention. To get the ball rolling, start with an easy project or a simple drawer. Dump the contents of the drawer on the floor, your bed, or the table, and sort through it, item by item. While you decide what you will definitely use, consciously connect with each item and put each one back in neatly and with love. And now, for the crucial part of the process, decide what you can Give Away or Throw Away. How often do you use it? Is it broken? Have you ever used it? Does it even fit?

I happened upon a TV show one Sunday afternoon, called Clean Sweep. On this show, a team of people came in and actually completely emptied the rooms to be cleared, bringing everything to the outside of the house. While the team inside cleaned, painted, and fixed the interior, the team outside decided what will be kept, sold, or thrown out. You, too, can create this “clean sweep” in your life by doing internal work whileyou clear your space. Self-observation and a clear awareness of the layers of your consciousness energetically instilled in your physical stuff and clutter may catapult us to higher spiritual awareness.

During this process, become conscious of what is being released. Perhaps there are old memories or stuck emotional energy associated with that shirt that you wore on that day you argued with your loved one. That was then and this is now. Release the past and clear the energy away while you deposit your things into your Give Away Bag. The release is simple. Think the thought that you are releasing the energy as you complete the action of the Give Away and voila! . . . so it is!

Renewal: Rites of Passage

“And the seasons, they go round and round, and the painted ponies go up and down. We’re captive on the Carousel of Time. We can’t return, we can only look behind from where we came and go round and round and round in the circle game.” The Circle Game by Joni Mitchell Here is a little serenade for you with this post:





Whether you are conscious of it or not, the cycles of life continue. You can choose to be conscious and aware of where you are and where you are going. You can also choose to be conscious of where you have been. The point is that we do have choices of how we live our lives.

Often, it is because of where we have been that we make our choices in the present moment that affects our future. We have been blessed with many positive loving experiences in our past. This provides a better chance of more of the same in the future. What if our experiences of the past were not all that positive and we continue forth unconsciously? More than likely, there will be more of the same in the future unless or until we move forward consciously in life. We have free will to grow up, learn, heal and evolve from our experiences, both positive as well as those we may perceive as not so positive with gratitude and consciousness.

Self-awareness is one of the keys for change. Awareness of the cycles of your life, the moon and the sun are tools that assist us. Consciously choosing love is another key. However, being able to love yourself must come first.
Every day, every week, every moon, every season, we have the opportunity for renewal and rebirth and to look at life from the greater perspective. Each night we sleep and dream and hopefully process and look at how we have acted and how we may improve our lives and our selves a bit more with the dawning of the new day. The cycle of a new beginning is provided daily! Ponder on this . . . every day we have the opportunity to do it over until we get it right. When you choose the path of love,you are then able to progress on to the next level of joy, peace and happiness.


Just as we have the opportunity each day to be a better friend, business associate, co-worker, caregiver, significant other or family member, we also have new beginnings with every moon cycle. The new moon each month provides a stepping up place to beginning again. And like wise, each spring when the Sun enters Aries, we start at the beginning of the astrological wheel to go once again through each of the signs of the zodiac. This provides a different flavor of learning with each cycle. Our Vernal Equinox usually falls on or around March 20 each year. The Vernal Equinox is determined by the day that the Sun enters Aries.


In the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, the Vernal Equinox is located at the east doorway. The east is where the sun rises, the dawning of a new day, the opportunity to begin again and live life better. Better and better, every day in every way. I love that affirmation. Let me give that to you again. I AM BETTER AND BETTER, EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY!


Perhaps you will choose to consciously work with the energies presented with this season. Now is the time. Clean out the closets of your home, your heart, your body and your mind. Then consciously choose. With what will you refill those cleared out spaces? You may have already planted the seeds that have been growing beneath the surface. So weed your personal garden, and choose what you will fertilize and let grow and what will you choose to pull out as a weed.

“ . . . and go round and round and round in the circle game.” Enjoy the carousel ride!

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of pure essential oils that are derived from plants, flowers, barks, roots and resins. The use of essential oils goes back thousands of years. It is the chemical constituents within the oils that can have an affect on us physically, mentally or emotionally. Oils can be inhaled by placing some on a hanky or within a diffuser. We can also put them on your body combined with carrier oil like sweet almond oil, jojoba oil or grapeseed oil. Putting the oil on the bottom of the feet is an effective way of getting the oil into our system.
Here are some oils you can use regularly:

Lavender
For the Body: Use lavender oil for headaches. It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-biotic. It can also help relax you when you just can’t sleep. It keeps away nightmares.
For the Mind and Emotions: Use lavender to calm your petunias! It is a stress reducer and will relax you when you are at your wit’s end.
For the Spirit: The purple energy of lavender can align you with pleasant dreams, dreams to connect you with your angels and dreams to bring insight and understanding. It’s a great oil to use for meditation.


Rosemary
For the Body: Rosemary oil has the ability to clear the sinuses and help you to breathe easier.
For the Mind and Emotions: This is a good oil for students or people who do a lot of detail mental work. Rosemary helps with the memory. Smell it while in class and when you are studying. Then smell in again when you are trying to remember it during the test! It’s an aromatic cheat sheet.
For the Spirit: Rosemary lifts one’s outlook on life and helps connect you with all that is good and positive. It’s a clean and bright scent.

Sweet Marjoram
For the Body: Sweet Marjoram is an oil that helps to rid one of headaches. It clears respiratory challenges and can be used to reduce muscular aches. Sweet Marjoram helps with insomnia as well.
For the Mind and Emotions: Have you ever felt hysterical? Are you ever anxious? Do you ever feel you just can’t handle being around one more negative person? Use Sweet Marjoram to calm hysterics, crying and anxiousness. If you feel you need extra protection because you are around a lot of negative people, place some on the temples and the back of your neck.
For the Spirit: Sweet Marjoram will bring in your Guardian Angel. Everyone believes in angels and invisible helpers don’t they? Our Guardian Angel protects and guides us. Believe! It’s a good thing.

Peppermint
For the Body: Peppermint can ease stomach upsets. This is also a great scent to clear the sinuses and sweeten one’s breath. I’ve used it to stop the itch from mosquito bites.
For the Mind and Emotions: Sniffing peppermint wakes up my mind and helps to bring alertness and mental clarity. It’s a good one to keep in the car for long road trips.
For the Spirit: Peppermint helps if you have a tendency to fall asleep when you meditate. It also clears the mind, so try it when the incessant chatter just doesn’t quit!

Lemon
For the Body: Using lemon oil as an anti-viral agent is beneficial as well as an agent for boosting the immune system. For the Mind and Emotions: Lemon is a happy scent and helps raise one out of depression. It also brings mental clarity. If you work with a lot of numbers and want to be very clear, try a bit of lemon to help your focus.
For the Spirit: Use lemon oil to raise your self-esteem and self-confidence.

Luck: Concepts of Good Fortune

Do you believe you are lucky? Really, stop right now and think about it. Do you ever just muse over how lucky you are? Sincerely ponder about your good luck and how blessed you feel in so many ways? Well, if you do, then kudos to you! This is a good thing!

Good Luck or Good Fortune is truly good old fashion positive thinking. Interestingly enough, when we believe that we are lucky then pretty soon all those around us hold that thought and image of us. Our friends and our family think and say things like, “ Wow, isn’t she lucky?” or “He always wins prizes or raffles. He is so lucky!” or “Oh, it doesn’t surprise me that she won the lottery! She is always winning something.” Well, their beliefs and thoughtforms combined with our own beliefs and thoughtforms are what actually creates our reality. It seems so simple, doesn’t it?

If it seems so simple, why aren’t more of us feeling, acting and living in a way that is magnificent and simply fabulous?


Part of it stems to how we may feel about others good fortune. When we make those comments as mentioned above regarding another’s good fortune, is it with genuine happiness for their good fortune or with the attitude of why them and not me? Are we saying or thinking, “Good for them! How nice!” or are we harboring jealousy and focus on believing that ‘they’ are always lucky but not me?

Well, if by chance it is the second category then it it’s time to shift that attitude and be genuinely happy when good fortune is manifesting in someone’s life. The reasons are multifold. When we are truly happy for another, we are actually coming from of place of abundance. We know and believe that there is plenty for everyone. Here is a reminder for all of us that there is plenty for everyone. And that plenty includes happiness, financial abundance and security, true friends and loving family, good health, joy, inner peace and more. It comes back down to what are our personal beliefs? What thoughtforms are rolling around in our heads? It really is important to examine our own thoughts and take a good look at whether or not we are being negative.

This brings us around to bad luck. Ha! I believe that good luck disappears when we are focused on what is not working or not happening in our life. Bad luck manifests when there is too much negativity in our thoughts, words, actions, TV programs or movies we watch, music that we listen to and in the people that we hang around with. Well, well, those are quite a few things to take a look at, isn’t it? Instead stay focused on gratitude for what we do have and focus on what we want to achieve and manifest, then that is what becomes evident. All that we are thinking about and working towards with focused intent, a good heart for all concerned and Love will manifest good things, our hearts desires . . . . or Good Luck! As you think, so you are.

Luck is simply manifested by believing in yourself and all the good that you are and that you deserved. If you believe that you are always healthy, then you are always healthy. If you believe that you are beautiful, then you are beautiful . . . and be prepared for others telling you that you are beautiful. If you believe that you live a charmed life and maintain that belief you will find that your reality will reflect that belief. So live a charmed life! Good things happen to people who believe that good things will happen to them. And the best part is that it doesn’t cost you anything or hurt anything to try this. When you do, you will be so lucky.

In appreciation to St. Patrick and the legends and myth surrounding the celebration of his life, we are grateful for the reminder of good luck. I grew up in a neighborhood in Brooklyn that was very ethnic in more than one culture. On St. Patrick’s Day we all honored the Irish celebration and wore green and shamrocks on our clothes in our neighborhood. I continue that tradition today in celebration of the green-ness of life, the good-ness in us all and the good luck belonging to all. Let us all do the ‘wearing of the green’ to acknowledge the good luck and good fortune we all deserve. May we all remember that magic lives in our hearts, our thoughts and our beliefs. May we all have joy and happiness and love always.

www.smudgeinspray.com created during a sleepless night


I'm punchy now. I stayed up all night creating a new website. http://www.smudgeinspray.com/


I am so grateful that Smudge in Spray has been selling so well at so many stores around the country. I noticed yesterday that nearly every customer who came into the store bought a bottle. Some came in just for the Smudge in Spray. I guess the introduction of the new label added extra energy to it taking off - or I should say flying off the shelf. Just this week, I had a reorders from a number of stores increasing their reorder to 24 - 36 bottles at a time.


Yay!

New Label for Smudge in Spray


As promised, I'm posting a photo of the new label of Smudge in Spray. I've submitted it for a COVR Visionary Award. If it wins, I will receive the award at the banquet at the International New Age Trade Show (INATS) in Denver in June. COVR is the acronym for the Coalition of Visionary Resources. If you have a visionary business, this trade organization helps this trade find success through various programs and member benefits.
So, the new label is professional. It was created by a professional graphic artist, Victoria Rose Martin. I constantly sing her praises. The high gloss label will prevent fading or wash out. They look very nice. I am so pleased.
We are receiving a great response from retailers around the country. The spray sells well and retailers are re-ordering often. They also sell all day long at The Crystal Garden. It seems that most purchasers add on Smudge in Spray with their order. If you know of a store near you who might like to carry this spray, please have them contact me at The Crystal Garden. I've been working on developing the wholesale website. For right now, I'm using http://www.margaretannlembo.com/
Use this sacred blend to clear your space of negativity in place of smoking smudge products. Maintain clear thoughts of clearing any negativity thoughts, feelings or emotions that may be lingering from conversations, fights and thoughtforms of worry, doubt and fear. Spray and pray that it is replaced with Love, Light and Well-Being.
Ingredients: Water, sage, cedar, lavender, sweet marjoram, pine, Florida Water, Chalice Well Water from Glastonbury, England; Sacred Site Essences from Teotihuacán; church of St. Germaine in France, Lanzon in Chauvin, Peru; and water from the spring of the last home of the Virgin Mother Mary in Anatolia, Ephesus, Turkey.
Now I'm working on Guardian Angel Spray for Children. I'm working with a prototype and should have a blend soon. I'll share more on that as it develops.

Sha Nay and Mikael - my birds on video

I finally figured out how to use the video application on my Blackberry. That was easy! I'll get better at it as time goes on. I've created a short video of the shenanigans of my 2 birds. Sha Nay is the blue and gold macaw. She is about 17 1/2 years old. Mikael is the white dove and he is approximately 19 years old. (don't tell him how old he is!) These 2 have lived together their whole lives at The Crystal Garden in one of our 4 showrooms which is appropriately called the Bird Room.

Mikael flies free throughout the store. He has a few key spots that he frequents. One is above the Essential Oils behind our front desk in the front show room. This upper shelf houses statues that have broken which we didn't have the heart to throw away. Mikael likes to coo and bow at himself in the mirror between 2 white porcelain Kuan Yins.

Kuan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compasion. There are also a few Archangel Michael statues up there and others. . . . here is the video. I hope it makes you smile!
