Wednesday is Turquoise Day!

Wednesday is turquoise day.  Beautiful turquoise can be found in Iran, Afghanistan, Australia, Tibet and the southwestern United States. 

Turquoise is a copper aluminum phosphate mineral.  The beautiful blue hue is caused by the introduction of copper metal and the interesting, intriguing green color is from iron deposits. 
The name turquoise comes from the French, "pierre turquoise" which means "Turkish Stone". 

Turquoise is one of the longest used gemstones in history for adornment.  In both Hindu and Persian beliefs, the turquoise was a new moon symbol and would lead to good fortune and protection from evil or harm.  Native Americans had some of their beliefs of good fortune or protection from the properties of this gem.

Metaphysical Properties:
Wisdom, Experience, Spiritual Protection, Compassion, Forgiveness, Kindness, Love, Happiness, Brings about what one most wishes for

Holistic Properties:
Helps to oxygenate the blood and increase the amount of "prana" in the physical body.

My son is graduating High School tomorrow and I am in such a reflective mood. I remember so clearly what a precocious little guy he was when he was so small. I use to call him my smurf as he'd run as if the wind gave him wings and he could fly or he already was and no one else could tell.
I see the young man that he's becoming and how difficult it was to transition for him. I would tuck both my daughter and son in at bedtime. My son and I would do our rendition of the movie, The Last Emperor where he would say to me, his mom, "You are my butterfly". I recall pointing up to the sky at bedtime when the stars were all out and finding the north star. I would tell him that no matter what, that was our star and no matter where we were if we looked for that star we'd be together.
We had some very difficult times indeed. The adolescent years of teenage angst. After awhile came girls and trends and of course, "can you loan me some money?"
Tomorrow though I'll look at him as the man he is and not the boy he was. Tomorrow is his day and he earned it. I will always have those memories no matter how distant they are in time, in my heart they are a stones throw away. But, tomorrow I will say good bye to my little man and hello to my forever son.

Mystery and History

I have been a life coach since about 2007 and have always enjoyed the interaction of energies.  I also am aware that during that time, I am being given the honor of utmost trust with some of my clients deepest suppressed desires and fears about getting on with their life in a new direction or more fulfilling one.

I started to do workshops by request and found that I enjoyed them even more than one on one consulting!  To be in front of a group that has a shared experience of wanting to reach their goals by enriching their spirit is so wonderful to see!  I am almost embarrassed to admit sometimes I'm not quite sure how I'll proceed till I myself assess the energy the creator has given to work with.

So I have a decision to make.  I have been requested to meet to do some spiritual work on the 17th of this month.  It will be quite extensive and there was some concern if I'd be up to it. This healing circle will take place for approximately 12 hours.  I believe it to be from dawn to dusk. 

Since I can't seem to make up my mind...Here is an idea I have.  This will be held on sacred tribal land and I won't disclose the location.  It is not relevant.  However, if you'd like me to send a prayer on your behalf, please write to me.  Should I receive enough requests, I will lay a stone on the sacred altar with all the names of the responders to this blog.  Ok, lets see what happens! Do we have "group" energy?

A beautiful day to you!

This kind of dovetails with my "Universe Provides" theme.  I couldn't help, but write about it since I often struggle with just what to tell.  But, this you will find amusing as I did.
Sitting in my workshop and trying to get something accomplished today was quite a struggle.  When I finally got to where I could focus without distraction, I noticed that I missed playing music while I worked.  My stereo hasn't been hooked up since I moved in and I was wishing it was.
Anyhooo...just as I was looking around to see what I could do about my music dilemma, I heard outside my door..."testing...testing" from a microphone.
My neighbors had a party and a live band and I got tons of music.The very type of  music that I would have listened to. This happened without any effort on my part whatsoever other than a wish!  Who says there is no "magic"?

The universe is so unpredictable, but it always responds some way. This was a delight and I was like a child of wonder. I wondered what would have happened if I asked, "I wonder where the winning lottery ticket is...?"

The Stone of The Week
I decided to pick a different stone every week and describe it for its metaphysical and / or holistic practices.  Being metaphysical, lets just go where the road leads us. However, I'd like to start with the energy "chakras" or centers that reside inside of us at every moment...keeping our lil flesh and bone machines running!

The First Stone:

Rubies are rare and precious gems.  They rule the month of July and control the first chakra or energy center.  These energies spiral continually like lil springs that pump as they spiral.  This is also depicted as "giving off a vibe".  The ruby is by far one of the most coveted of stones.  Lets find out why:

Rubies are mined in and outside the US.  Matter of fact their key element is "earth".  Garnets were at one time also considered a ruby.  A rubies crystal system is considered hexagonal and has many varied forms.
Rubies have a vibrancy that is breathtaking.  They are very powerful for stimulation of the root chakra, first chakra or first energy center.   A good stone for passion and agility.  They empower the wearer with regards to self esteem and confidence.  They are great gemstones for anxiety and empowerment.  They can also be a catalyst for kundalini energy.
