Crystal Cleansing

Crystal Cleansing

I have cleansed my crystals before using running water or bathing them in the light of a Full Moon, but I felt that they have never been properly cleansed until I started using this method recommended by The American Indian: Secrets of Crystal Healing. This book is amazing. It teaches how the Apache and Cherokee tribes care for and use their crystals, all backed up by scientific research…you know how I am about that! Many people don’t realize the science […]

Sunday, Sunday

Sunday, Sunday

Last Monday I attended a Crystal Meditation at a local New Age store. It was my first crystal meditation in a group and it was amazing. It was just what I needed after the hard weekend I had just had. I was in the perfect place at the perfect time. I really needed my chakras balanced. I did a chakra meditation on my own a couple times using one of these (can’t remember which one it was), but the one […]

Light at the End of the Grieving Tunnel

Light at the End of the Grieving Tunnel

OK. Feeling better now. I am at peace with the fact that Mylo is free of his suffering, he lived a wonderful long physical life (15 years) and he is very loved. I rescued him at about 5 years old and we had 10 fun years with him. He and my other rescue, Krypto, got along famously and were partners in crime. He was breathtaking to look at; an oversized, glowing white dalmatian. I’ve never seen one this striking. Sure, […]

Rustic Sphinx & My Mylo

Rustic Sphinx & My Mylo

Thanks to Sun Tiger providing me with a link for identifying butterflies and moths, I am almost certain that the moth in my last post is a Rustic Sphinx moth. Thanks Sun Tiger. On a sad note, I made an appointment today to put my Mylo down on Saturday. We have tried everything and left no stone unturned with him. I was fine until I hung up the phone and looked at him looking at me with an inquisitive look […]

Moth & Space Shuttle Launch

Moth & Space Shuttle Launch

Are there any moth enthusiasts out there who can identify this beautiful specimen? I am too lazy to go research it myself. IT was found in South FloridaLook at how big that sucker is! He was heavy too. He was on DH’s motor cycle after he came home from a ride. (He wasn’t moving…..the moth) DH thinks he hit the cycle mid-ride, injured himself and just hung on for dear life. I gently moved him over near the garage door […]

Fantastical Meteor Shower Tomorrow Morning!

Fantastical Meteor Shower Tomorrow Morning!

It’s that time when Earth enters a stream of dusty debris from Halley’s Comet. It’s our annual eta Aquarid meteor shower. The shower should peak tomorrow morning just before dawn during the dark moonless hour with as many as 85 meteors per hour for those of you in the southern hemisphere and about 20 to 30 per hour for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Look East towards the constellation Pegasus and the planet Jupiter. Happy Sky viewing…forgot to […]

Beltane

Beltane

Martha Stewart (of all people…LOL!) had an issue out last year that I remembered mentioning many of the Pagan traditions surrounding May Day (Beltane)…one of them being washing your face in the morning dew after Beltane for beauty. The old Sicilian Strega tradition does this too for good luck (remember this story from my grandmother). This isn’t the exact article but I found some articles on her site that apparently got recycled from the issue that I read: a How-To […]
