Spiritual 2 X 4’s & the Power of Facebook

Sometimes you just need to be hit with a freakin’ 2 x 4 to get these spiritual lessons!  A couple weeks ago I stepped on a bee, wasp, hornet or something (wasn’t looking too closely while I was hopping around yelling!) while Earthing outside in the backyard. Oooooo, that hurt!! I pulled out the stinger (or so I thought) & the pain subsided after 10 min.

Then I thought to myself, ” I need to go look up what Bee Medicine means, b/c obviously I need some.”

Yeah…..did I do that? Noooooo. Went about my merry way. 2 days later there’s a red line climbing up my leg.  I should’ve known better but was so busy with the sacred crystal biz & didn’t want to take time out. So I innocently ask on Facebook, hoping to hear differently

“Hey what do you think I should do about this red line climbing up my leg?”

Immediately, I had dozens of sweet souls responding, telling me to get to the doctor right away, it may be blood poisoning, call the Dr…..do something!  Durn! This is not what I wanted to hear. I reluctantly called my Dr. & she told me to get in STAT! Red lines are nothing to play around with. 

Turns out it was blood poisoning, probably b/c I didn’t get the entire stinger out. Sheesh! And my Facebook peeps saved the day b/c this stubborn Cappy wasn’t listening to the signs!!! Woooohooo for my FB Peeps!

Sooooo, after my treatment for that, I finally settled in & did some research on Wasp Medicine. Certain Native American Indian tribal myths coin the wasp as the creator of Mother Earth & also a symbol of order &  organization as well as productivity!

Whoa! HUGE message for me there at that time. I was spending way too much time doing many disjointed & unfocused projects (not like me at all) instead of focusing on the course download program for my Certified Crystal Healer Course.

But, did I listen? Not yet! I still kept working on so many disorganized patterns; purchasing inventory, special orders on crystals, Tucson Gem show itinerary stuff & just plain ole’ HUGE time wasters all over the place!!!

So Sunday morning I pull this GORGEOUS oracle card from my Earth Magic Deck that has a woman working with a crystal grid. Oohhhhh, perfection!

What that meant to me was to go pay attention to my Business & Career Path grid! Which I have been doing on a regular basis….& despite my disjointed work patterns (which is sort o uncharacteristic for me) has been working its magic quite nicely I must say!

But this was not enough & I think I missed the larger, more important message here: Invocation & Ceremony. I needed to do more to understand fully & I still hadn’t addressed the organization issue. I needed to STOP & refocus! Contemplate in ceremony & plan. Geeez! Talk about hard-headed.

THEN, I had recently listened to a recent podcast from Goddess Leonie about how physical pain finally stopped her & made her listen to the messages. I know all about that since I teach it for crying out loud & have experienced it myself several times! I thought to myself as I listened…”Oh, I hope that doesn’t happen to me anytime soon, I have so much to do right now.” Totally oblivious!

Then I even foresaw what the set back would be!!! I had envisioned it in several little flashes here & there. Instead of doing anything about it on an energetic level, I took those hints & I started doing my physical therapy prevention exercises.

“Paaah! Not gonna do it this time missy! You are being way too DENSE!”

Well, this Monday morning I awoke with a stiff neck…pretty bad, but I pressed on. Work to be done. (I am cracking up at myself in disbelief…how I missed all these signs…how totally oblivious I’ve been! I can see it so clearly when it comes to others…but for myself….?)

Each day its progressively gotten worse (instead of better as usual). I FINALLY GOT THE MESSAGE…Wednesday night as I lay in radiating neck & upper back pain, finally giving myself the attention I so so needed & craved all along. I meditated & listened…finally listened. I booked an accupucnture session, a sports massage (squeezed me in for tomorrow), an energy treatment & did my own crystal healing with red jasper & aventurine. Now the pain has finally crossed the threshold of peaking & is beginning to subside. Now, that the lesson has been taught.

I put my Etsy shop on Vacation mode & cleared out some scheduled events off my calendar.

I then set a clear & organized focus:

1. Crystal Healer Certification Program

2. Crystals & Our Sacred Spaces Free eBook

If it doesn’t directly tie into these 2 items then I am not working on it unless there’s nothing else I can do with those 2. Listen to the Bee!!! Yes, I’m finally listening to the bee. Do you also perhaps need a little Bee Medicine? 🙂

Have you had any 2 x 4’s lately? Please comment below & share.

Namaste,

  1. I’m a cappy too and I am so stubborn sometimes. On the good side of it, we never forget a lesson we have to fight so hard to learn..; )

  2. I love how open you are in this post about being just the teensiest bit dense on the topic! Sounds like you finally got the message which is a good thing.

  3. I’m so glad you went to the doctor! I could identify so much with what you said. Thanks for sharing your experience about all of this! Oh, and I love that card you drew – I need to see about getting that deck! ♥

      1. What crystal oracle deck do you use? I have Naisha Ashians Crystal Ally Cards but they are different sized than all my other decks. My slight OCD tendencies just wont allow me to mix them together!! Is there another crystal deck that is “earth magic sized”?? 🙂

  4. Living in the tropics I always have neem and calendula on hand for just these types of things, avoiding the red line!
    I hear you on taking too much on and it takes a slap on the side of the head to bring you out of it…. have been there sooo many times. I’m better about it now, but I can still get overwhelmed in my head.

    Keeping a really simple list of 3 things has helped tremendously. I also keep a second list so if I have 15 minutes before the next thing I can check one of those other little things off. It’s been working well since I move to Hawaii, spend more time outside, in the ocean and clearing my head 🙂

  5. Another Cap here… and yeah, we can be just a *tad* stubborn at times, can’t we?

    I’ve occasionally been known to ask the Universe why it insists on hitting me upside the head with a 2×4 sometimes. And usually it smiles sweetly and says something along the lines of “well, if you’d just listen when I tap you on the shoulder and whisper nicely, I wouldn’t have to”.

    Helpful thing, the Universe…

    Glad you’re OK, my friend – well done on learning from the experiences!

  6. Love this post. A great reminder to listen to our inner voice- the one that guides us- and how when we don’t the universe will wave it’s arms frantically to get our attention. I haven’t had any spiritual 2 x 4s lately – and this certainly will remind me to look for the early signs. Thanks!

    And glad you’re ok from that bite!

    Thanks for sharing…loved reading it!

  9. I can totally relate to ending up with aches/pains/injuries when I’ve over-extended myself or gotten off-track somehow. Strangely enough, it seems to happen right AFTER I’ve realized that I need to change something and then right before I can take that first step. Boom. Put my back out…or come down with a nasty chest cold…anything, it seems, for Spirit to knock me upside the head and make me got back to square one and re-evaluate. Maybe…someday…I’ll get the hint a couple steps before I currently do, and be able to revert to square one without booboos and ice packs. lol

  12. Oh, this kind of thing happens to me all the time. I am very stubborn and often worry about things I really shouldn’t and the only way it ever gets through my thick skull is if the Universe physically knocks the snot out of me. I’ve been down and out for two weeks and am on the recovery path. I needed to have alone time to just relax and think and I had not been allowing that at all because I had too many things cluttering my brain, regardless of if they were important or not. So now that I finally get it I know I too have to organize and prioritize better.

  13. well, just read this…I am totally unfocused lately, and am a virgo with cap moon AND ascendant…just cannot seem to get started on what I want to do, which is what you do…and have not been to accupuncturist nor yoga because of no money…a constant conundrum…also i CAN go go go and feel great, but if lack of money gets in the way, it gets worse…the lack of energy is making things worse…how does one solve that? i love the post, because I have been feeling like this…

  14. I think I’m going through one at the moment …… just not up to my normal game and being forced to take time out. Am working on gaining clarity so I can take focused action!
