Connection to Morgana Calcite Crystal Skull

Connection to Morgana Calcite Crystal Skull

Today, sitting in the cabin, I looked out of the window and saw the wonderful butterfly I blogged about last week. I wondered what the message was and then it came to me, I have to STOP searching for guidance and teachers and look at my body of works.

Butterfly

I then looked at the Zebra stone and realized that it was similar in colour to the Hematite and Rutile that I worked with recently.

The Zebra stone is the crystal I am planning to take to Scotland with me. I was supposed to travel to Scotland today (Wednesday) but felt unwell, so I created space for me to heal.

Jay was on a play day with his new dog walker so no excuses. I first cleaned the house and now I am processing my experiences.

I also did a 5 card angel reading this morning from my very first Oracle Cards created by Doreen Virtue, Messages from Your Angels.

Past: I am at the end of a cycle

Present: Time Out – Stop and Take Care of Yourself

Future: Conditions are not favourable right now.

Action: Time to take care of yourself

Outcome: Allow your spiritual gifts to Open

I did great, and the best place to meditate is in the cabin at Sunshine Glen, how lucky am I.

I was guided to do my connection with Crystals meditation and using the crystal skull in the Cabin.

Morgana Calcite Skull

When I looked at the meaning of Morgana I could not find one.

The message  I received when I did the meditation was to love myself and be gentle. I was shown a connection to pink and white butterflies.

I then Googled it and found this amazing site depicting butterfly symbolisms.

Metamorphosis is the magic that insects can teach us. Change ensures growth. We have to shed the old before we can come into the new. We give birth to ideas, activities, or qualities. Ideas and creativity need to be shaped, formed, developed and honed. After this is accomplished, the new foundation is laid. Sometimes, we need to back off and go deeply within after laying a foundation so that creation will be able to come forth strong and in a new light. Just as the adult butterfly only emerges when conditions are right, our ideas and activities will only flourish on a higher level when conditions are right. That is the force of creation the only constant is that we are always changing.

Symbolism and Power

Butterfly is the power of air, the ability to float upon a breeze. It is known for its darting flight; thus, it represents the mind and our ability to change it when necessary. Butterfly represents the never-ending cycle of life; therefore, its medicine bestows not only the ability, but the clarity of mind needed before self-transformation.

Butterflies appear to dance as they flitter among the flowers. They remind us not to take things so seriously within our lives. They awaken a sense of lightness and joy. They remind us to get up and move, for if you do not move, you cannot dance.

Angels Lightly

One of the patterns I am choosing to release is the old belief that creating business needs to be hard work.

This for me is the key message of the butterfly today. Healing my heart chakra with the wonderful pick energies and letting go of residual fear that is stopping me from healing up until now☺.

Butterflies bring colour and joy with them. The colours of the butterfly should be examined for significance and to help you understand its role within your life. Look at how much or little joy is in your life. Lighten up. Look for change. Make changes when the opportunities present themselves. The butterfly will teach you that growth and change do not have to be traumatic. Change can occur as gently and as joyfully as one wishes. This is my wish, so be it.

The Lesson

The lesson of the butterfly is letting go of old behaviour and expounding into the next phase of existence. Each of us transforms through multiple stages in our life. It is only through exertion that we emerge into who we will be next.

Ask for butterfly help when:

You need help organizing a project or detailing the sequence of steps to complete it.

You know it is time for a change and need the courage to break free from your cocoon.

You are experiencing a major life change.

You take things too seriously.  

 Butterfly

Sitting alone on a hillside confused about what to do

My choices were all complicated; it was time to think things through

Spotted a striped caterpillar stretching her face to the sky

Dragging her cumbersome body an inch at a time

I was feeling the pain of slow progress when a friend of her fluttered by

I leaned close as the caterpillar spoke with a voice as soft as a sigh. She said

Butterfly please tell me again I am going to be alright

I can feel a change is coming

I can feel it in my skin

I can feel myself outgrowing

This life I’ve been living in

And I’m afraid afraid of change

Butterfly, please tell me again I’m gonna be alright

I’m like my friend the caterpillar, afraid of the dark cocoon

Wanting to hide in the tall grass, when change is coming soon

But all of the things that we long for are borne on the wings of change

And losses can lead us to blessings that we can’t explain

Butterflies remind us, that there’s magic in every life

And we can become what we dream of, if fat furry worms can fly. So I say:

Butterfly please tell me again I am going to be alright

I can feel a change is coming

I can feel it in my skin

I can feel myself outgrowing

This life I’ve been living in

And I’m afraid afraid of change

Butterfly, please tell me again I’m gonna be alright

And on the day of my last breath

I expect to see angels like butterflies over my head and I’ll say

Butterfly please tell me again I am going to be alright

I can feel a change is coming

I can feel it in my skin

I can feel myself outgrowing

This life I’ve been living in

And I’m afraid afraid of change

Butterfly, please tell me again I’m gonna be alright

~ Lyrics by Jana Stanfield and Joyce Rouse

Access butterfly power by:

• Noticing colours you are drawn to and trying to discern what they mean for you.

• Choosing a habit you no longer want, developing and implementing a plan to change it.

• Observing butterflies in their natural environment (a park or preserve) and noting what you are thinking when one comes into view.

• Wrapping yourself tightly in a blanket for a few minutes and then slowly unwrapping it and emerge. Does this seem like a metaphor for anything in your life right now?

• Dance! Alone or with someone, release the energy to propel you forward.

I am now going to wrap myself up in my wonderful pink blanket and lie on my healing table at Sunshine Glen. With this wonderful pink Quartz heart on my body.

Pink Quartz Heart

I hope you found my connection with the Morgana Calcite Crystal Skull useful and the messages of the white(purity) and pink (love) butterfly.

Hematite and Rutile Crystal

Hematite and Rutile Crystal

Last week I worked with the wonderful crystal,  Hematite with Rutile.

Hematite and Rutile

On Thursday, I went for a lovely walk in nature with Jay, our lovely dog. I had previously carried out the meditation to connect with crystal energies which will soon be available for you to download from my website.

As I walked in nature I noticed a butterfly which reminded me of the colour and shape of the crystal. I shared this experience with a lovely lady who came to visit Sunshine Glen and we marvelled at Mother Nature.

Later that afternoon, I had my world circle group online session, and Julie Ann asked what I was grateful for and I said “butterflies.” I shared the story of the crystal and my nature walk. This lead to a wonderful discussion about crystals,  butterflies and an amazing sharing of wisdom.

I could feel the energies of transformation. The decision I made during the session with loving support from the group especially Rita, was to let go of the old to allow the full transformation to occur and this is what I have decided to do – letting go of my old website and letting the ideas fully manifest for the creation of the new.

Butterfly on Orange

The picture above reminds me of this,  as one butterfly moves around. The other is moving out of the chrysalis on the fruit to grow, so the bigger one will slowly move away all in divine flow.

This is the core of the Bizplansol Model (picture below), the ideas (egg stage) are incubating like seeds.

Bizplansol Lifecycle

Then the butterfly emerges from the Chrysalis. It grows then flies where guided, creating the egg for the next stage of transformation as we evolve on our life journey.

Amazing, the inspiration that comes from, one crystal connection. I was also inspired to create a meditation and worksheet. Experience turning excitement and passion into patience and flow so something else was birthed and is now at the caterpillar stage moving into the chrysalis and then it will fly. Gosh I so love Mother Nature, teaching me patience with a lot of help from my friends.

Now for the exciting part I get to research what the message of this magical crystal is in books.

I was unable to find a description of both so went to my trusted book by Judy Hall “The Crystal Bible 2 (page 318 &319)” for Rutile.

Imparts an ethereal vibration to any crystal in which it is include, enhancing out of body journeying and angelic contact through its attunement to the divine.

Nevertheless it is not an airy fairy crystal when accelerating spiritual growth it goes immediately to the heart of the matter and insists that you deal with it.

It radiates power down the song lines of the earth. Helping you to ground high vibrational downloads.

The hematite is described by Judy Hall in pages 140 & 141 of the Crystal Bible as:

Hematite is particularly effective at grounding and protecting. Used during out of body journeying. It protects the soul and grounds it back into the body.

Psychologically Hematite is strong. It supports timid women, boosts self-esteem and survivability, enhances will power….

This stone removes self-limitations and aids expansion. Hematite brings attention to the unfulfilled desires that are driving life.

Combining both now makes sense to me. After I connected with the energies of the butterfly symbolising transformation then grounded that transformation by making a decision to move my limitations that I had imposed on my website allowing the creativity to flow.

What are your experiences with either of these crystals or both? Would love to hear them! Send me a comment.

I am getting ready to travel to Scotland and taking the Zebra Stone turtle (which actually belongs to Howell) with me along with the Zebra stone Pyramid. These were not on my list but they are calling to come with me.

Look forward to sharing the next crystal connection in my next blog.

Namaste

The Intention

The Intention

On Friday at Yoga our wonderful teacher Sharon did a Yoga Nidra .

Part of the process is set what I term an intention but in yoga terms it is called Samkalpa which is Sanskrit.

The intention I set was -  I am peaceful. I have been working on many different levels, transcribing meditations, organising my vast amount of teaching materials, having fun and connecting with Jay and Howell at the wonderful dog retreat and pondering on how to keep the momentum going in creating space for a more fulfilled life for Jay, planning a trip to Scotland. Re-creating space with Howell in our home and re-creating my business.

On Thursday whilst working with the amazingly patient Grace Long,  an extremely good story teller friend and so much more, I mentioned that I wanted to write a blog and share a new moon meditation on my website and blog about how to connect with the energies of the new moon to set intention(s). Trusting that this will be available for you for next month’s new moon.

GraceJay2

That evening whilst ironing and cooking dinner, I listened to the podcast from Julie Ann’s wonderful interview with Mallika Chopra and it was as always inspiring.

I am now sitting in the cabin, having downloaded the book “Living with Intent my somewhat messy journey to purpose peace and Joy”  to my kindle. The authentic honesty that Mallika shares (I am only at the first chapter) is inspiring and encouraging.

The words of wisdom that her father Deepak Chopra shared with her really resonate with me.

What do you want?

Mallika describes that her brother and her would come up with material possessions holidays etc. Her father would listen patiently and then ask ?

How about love? Compassion? Connection ? Inspiration? Purpose?

“And through this process we began each day setting an intention, a desire a dream we wanted to pursue, and actively creating the emotional spiritual connections to make it happen”

He then asked them what they wanted?

When I discovered my values (what is important to me, how I desired to be and feel) it was life changing. I had a choice! What did I really want. As Mallika did decide to revisit the truths that her father shared with her as a child,  I asked myself what did I want?

I want Peace and the way to achieve peace in the outer world is to nurture and cultivate peace within. To be content and fulfilled. Not because it is a written in a book and is how we should be but how I truly feel.

So this month I am reviewing my Intentions I previously set in Brisbane and I have carried back with me  to Sunshine Glen.

Treasure Chest

Let me share for now, 2 of the intentions I set in Brisbane on 29th April 2014 that I have been working with at each New Moon Cycle and at Full Moon cycle releasing anything that is blocking me for letting the abundance I desire manifest in the physical , mental, emotional and spiritual realms.

Intention 1               Intention 2

I was guided to create action statements for them.

Action 1              Action 2

I was also guided to revisit my values that I created in 2006 with an amazing coach and two brilliant books.

Let us focus on the first two my top two values.

JOY

Key words: Security, love, peace, fun, clarity, communication

Living in bliss every day filled with exciting people, places and lots of enthusiasm and passion for a making a difference in people’s lives. Helping people find their inner peace and contentment.

LOVE

Keywords: Fun, shared experiences, joy and understanding

Providing a nurturing and joyful environment for all friends,  family and work colleagues where people are valued,  respected and felt at peace.

To me feeling at peace means , being fulfilled and content . Listening to friends , family and colleagues dreams and desires. Treating people with respect and being interested in what others do and say. Encouraging people to find their passion and to dream and in-turn find fulfilment.

Goal: To be at peace, To listen to people’s dreams and visions and to support people to find their dreams. Part of the service I offer is how to find your dreams and let them manifest.

I recommend that you use the energies of the New Moon to set your intention for the forthcoming month(s).  Check it out. You can do this any time of the year by connecting with the divine energies within or your higher self,  however it resonates with you. Check out my blog  and let me know how you are progressing on your journey.

Thank you for being part of my learning journey

Namaste

Pink Opal Crystal

Pink Opal Crystal

The very first meditation I recorded was 50 mins. long in connection to the Unicorn meditation which I love. Since then I have recorded many more meditations and am passionate about them. I find it so easy and I feel blessed that I am able to share them with more and more people to support them on their journey.

My latest meditation recorded on the 28th of May, before going on the Spiritual Dog retreat,  really helped me connect with this wonderful crystal.

How to Work with the Crystal

When working with crystals, I suggest you follow your guidance.  Do not look at the healing properties of the crystals,  just simply go into a crystal shop or, look at the crystals you already have or go online and be guided to the one you desire.

As I mentioned in my Alexandrite Crystal blog, I was given a list of Crystals many years ago before I went to Kuala Lumpur and Oz. I started to work through them linearly but this did not work for me so I am  guided to what crystals to connect with next. (more about this in my next crystal blog)

Today, I will share my experiences with the pink opal crystal. Firstly, this is the information I was guided to when I used the meditation I was given on 28th May 2015, before our Spiritual Dog Retreat in beautiful West Wales.

The following questions were asked during my meditation. The  text in purple is the experiences that I had, relevant to the questions during the retreat (whilst the crystal is beside me all week) and also the attributes of the properties of the Crystals which are:

Pink Opal is a vibrant, uplifting, joy-bringing stone. It can help to bring the sweetness and lightness back into life and is good to use in times of stress.

In addition Pink Opal is believed to help you to get rid of emotional hang-ups and to free you from feelings of shame, guilt and inhibition. It encourages you to forget your worries and enhances emotional clarity allowing you to see things as they really are, free from assumptions based on past experiences.

Question: What are the magical attributes of this wonderful crystal  that is supporting me in my evolution at this time?

Answer: Freedom, Speed, Spiralling abundance is the message of the crystal I am working with.

I learnt a new technique called the balance procedure created by Jenny Cox and delivered by Caroline Griffith. Whist practicing I felt myself go into a spiral in order to balance myself. I also felt a great sense of freedom for Jay our dog who was able to interact of lead. One of the questions that I have been asking for some-time now is How can I be free to be responsible. I feel this answer coming to me.

Question: How should I work with this crystal to honour the gifts I am receiving?

Answer:  Allow the healing energies to flow through me healing any past life situations;  any fears that are linked to my path as a Wizard knowing that all is well and all is beautiful.

During the retreat Howell, Jay and I visited Newcastle Emlyn where I bought the Merlinite Crystal (refer to Merlinite Crystal blog) This is where I connected with the amazing Merlin Energies back in 2010. Re-visiting this sacred site has re-energised and healed me.

Question: What action for me should I take in order for me to fulfil my divine purpose step-by-step?

Answer: Be joyful, Dream, let abundance flow and for people and situations come forward.

Today I visited St Fagan’s and felt great joy and grounding of my dreams. During the last month two of my dreams have come into reality. Attending the Hay House writer’s workshop and meeting a wonderful lady from Melbourne Australia. During the Spiritual Dog retreat,  I met amazing people and animals.

Question: How can I work with other people to share the message of the crystal kingdom?

Answer: Continue to blog and the information required will come to you on a weekly basis. We are guiding you and the fairy realms are working very closely with you at this time.

Know that you are loved and on purpose.

I thanked all the guides working with me at the same time feeling a magical transition of love coming through me.

I was guided to the gate by Master Merlin, to the entrance of the cave. Knowing that I can return to this magical cave anytime with any crystal I choose.

Experience: I know that I will connect , with this cave in the physical realm. I already have.

I remember finding a magical cave near St David’s in West Wales where I was honoured to attune a very special lady to Reiki Master level. I did put the intention out to find the cave but as the fairy card guided me towards patience. I was  pleased that all will be found in divine timing.

Another question was uncovered during my mentoring session with Julie Ann. This was how to transform passion to patience.

The Crystal connection Meditation will form part of www.fionacjames.com.  When it is ready to go live, we will keep you informed.

The next crystal to be discussed is Hematite with Rutile.

Merlinite Crystal

Merlinite Crystal

“Merlinite can bring magic into your life.”  ~Crystal Bible by Judy Hall

Merlinite

When I connected to Merlinite, I had a flashback to where I bought this wonderful stone.

In June 2010, I was attending the Diana Cooper School reunion in West Wales. I was really excited about this as I loved her work and was happy to belong to a group of like minded people.

During the reunion Diana Cooper was offering an attunement to Lemurian energy. I sat across from her at breakfast that day and mentioned that I did not feel that I wanted to attend the session. She advised me to follow my intuition.

I set out on a little adventure that took me to a crystal shop in new Castle Emlyn, where I bought this magical stone.

I returned to the Diana Cooper School reunion and that was the start of my re-connection with the wonderful Merlin energy.

A few months later I did my first workshop on Golden Atlantis at the Natural Living Show and that is when Master Wizard Stanley Stewart came into my life. I started to study with him and then my journey really began. I met Stanley in November 2010 and by January 2011 I was moving with Howell to Kuala Lumpur.

Now 4 years on I am today packing to go on a Spiritual Dog Retreat in West Wales with Howell and Jay, our dog.

Another adventure awaits and for this journey I am taking an Opal crystal with me.

I look forward to sharing my adventure with you when I return.

Thank you for being part of my journey.

Namaste Fiona

Alexandrite Crystal

Alexandrite Crystal

Whilst de-cluttering the cabin at Sunshine Glen, I came across a list of crystals I had been guided to a few years ago. I plan to use this crystal blog to explore how the crystals get their message out to the world. I would love to know your thoughts about these magical gems and how they are supporting you on your life journey and your children.

I looked at the list and found myself buying the second one on the list. Alexandrite. This was before I went to London to the Hay House Writers’ Event. I love the shape of the crystal and also the explanation. I feel full of wonder, when you are guided to buy a crystal and you do not know why and then when you research the meaning the messages become very clear.

 

Alexandrite

 

Alexandrite is said to help balance one’s emotional state, to provide confidence, to increase self-esteem and to help bring about change. It is also said to bring happiness and success, and to intensify feelings of love and sensuality.

It is a crystal often used to connect one with the very origin of being itself, and to help in spiritual growth of wholeness of self. It has been used as a stone of manifestation and good fortune, joy, and creativity.

Helps to align mental and emotional body and aids in spiritual transformation and regeneration. This stone reflects one’s highest potential, raises self-esteem, and brings oneness with life. It aids internal and external regeneration. Alexandrite is so special; it bestows both an uplifting and ennobling energy. In its highest aspect, Alexandrite symbolizes freedom, joy, and regeneration.

I kept the crystal with me during my weekend away in London and felt a transformation. Quietly, confident, loving, and exploring London whilst learning how to free my creativity.

Next week we will explore Merlanite. I know I have a lovely merlanite stone somewhere in the boxes I brought back from Brisbane.

Love, light and hugs always,

Never Give Up

Never Give Up

Wednesday was a very challenging (opportunity to grow) day for me.  I had an amazing day on Tuesday and was really passionate about taking action on business activities.  I also had to make arrangements for travelling to London, arrange for the dog to be looked after and tidy the house.  First start of the day was an unexpected load of washing from my son.  Then Jay, poor dog, (picture of Jay below)  started to cry and also looked as if he was going to pull out his stitches.  My plans started to go awry.

Sick Jay

However I kept going never giving up.  I was reminded as I travelled along to look at things from a higher perspective as I noticed a hawk flying by.

Hawk

Hawk

 

 

 

When I went to work on my Apple laptop computer I discovered that it had crashed.  Jay was crying and suddenly  I got into a negative mind set and wanted to hide away.  Then I decided to take action.  I booked my train tickets.  I posted my blog.  I spent time hugging Jay.  And life seemed better.  Now the question did I finish the ironing?

 

 

 

My husband Howell bought a plack for many years ago it is still in the packing boxes as I have taken it around the globe with me.   This quote resonated with what I know in my heart and what I was feeling:

Never Give Up

Never Give Up

I am reminding myself that persistence and looking at life from a higher perspective as the hawk does, make the perceived challenge disappear.   I also take a reality check and realise how blessed I am with all I have in my life.

Interestingly the card of the day is inspired by Katie Maloney.  We were both having challenges so this message was a win-win for both Katie and myself.

Move forward fearlessly.

Go Forward Fearlessly

The Purpose of Duality

The Purpose of Duality

Yesterday, I was talking to my friend and showing how wonderful  the clematis was looking.  As we admired the buds and I shared my passion and love for this plant.   She remarked how wonderful it was growing .  I proudly said that I was using it as a learning guide on how nature creates with ease.  She suddenly pointed out a weed that she said would strangle the plant.  We started to pull out the weed and as I did the unopened buds fell in my hands.   I felt sadness and emotional.  Not just because the weed could possibly harm the blossom and spoil my blog story of beauty, but also because I didn’t want to kill the weed.  It too was serving a purpose highlighting how precious the plant was and how strong it was.

Weeds

We had a discussion about the fact that there needs to be duality sometimes, for us to appreciate beauty but always knowing that all is well.  Both plants gave me a very, powerful,  lesson – that beauty can shine under-threat.

Tuning into the season of Summer when blooms appear.

I have been reflecting on this and made the decision to allow the Clematis,  to grow  and after it has bloomed and shared its wonderful flowers I will ask my lovely husband to  prune  it back.

Take the risk and trust that the Clematis will flower exactly as divinely guided.  After all it has managed on its own for the last few years whilst we have been travelling.

I gave thanks to the Clematis and asked for Reiki healing to surround the plant.

Letting Go of Worry and Accepting Help

Letting Go of Worry and Accepting Help

Our dog Jay (not that I believe we own animals but they are part of our family) is teaching me so much. Where to start but the lesson for me in this moment just passed as I contemplated emptying the dishwasher is: To accept Help from others.

I am going to London this weekend on a writing course that I have wanted to attend for many years. Jay has just had an operation and I was feeling a little anxious about leaving him.

A wonderful family and a beautiful friend called Heather stepped forward and offered to help.

I know all is well but there is a part of me that is still worrying. So I decided to spend some time in the cabin and let go of worry. When I worry I try to control the situation this comes from a place of fear not pure unconditional love. When I let go and let love guide, all is well and the highest and best situation manifests.

Strangely or not I have this morning been updating my Reiki 2 Teaching Manual, with the help of Grace and came across the principles of Reiki. I advocate in my teachings to read these principles every morning. Now it is time to practice what I teach.

Namaste

Just for today, let go of anger
Just for today, let go of worry
Today, I will count my many blessings
Today, I will do my work honestly
Today, I will be kind to every living creature.
