This reading is from the pick a card on our Facebook page for 3.29.2020 If you have not seen the post for that take a moment before reading on and sit back in your chair, take a few relaxing breaths, relax your face, your cheeks your eyes, let your tongue fall to rest in your mouth, relax your shoulders, your torso, your gut, relax your hips and your legs, feel your feet engaging the floor and feel the connection to Mother Earth. Take a moment to just relax. Then open your eyes and look at the photo below and see which card (1,2 or 3) resonates with you. The stones left to right in the photo are blue lace agate, smokey quartz lepidolite, rose quartz and spirit quartz.
Card # 1 Two of Pentacles:
Stay Centered. This can be an unstable time, so keep hold of the ideas and values that mean something special to you now. While you need to be open to change, you also need to feel centered both emotionally and spiritually.
Two's represent the affirmation and confirmation of new directions that begin at the Ace level. You are comparing your options and choosing to say "yes" to the Ace's beginning but you haven't yet fully developed the plan of the (coming) "three."
It is appropriate at this time to say "yes" to this new thing. It's to your advantage to claim it for your own. Even though the details aren't clear yet, this is an appropriate direction for you.
Blue Lace Agate: The frequency of blue lace agate opens and clears the throat chakra and assists in connecting one's communication with higher guidance. It assists in helping one to speak their mind and heart in a way that others can hear.
Physical: Its soothing energy focuses on the throat- so sore throats, inflammation of the throat and throat areas.
Emotional: Blue lace agate helps is calming and centering and helps to soothe nervousness and anxiety.
Spiritual: Blue lace agate teaches us that our words create our reality and can reflect our higher self.
Card # 2 Ace of Cups:
Be open to love. Joy, health, happiness, and excitement are being offered to you on the proverbial silver platter. Don't ignore these gifts of love or allow them to go unappreciated. Allow yourself to feel the positive benefits flowing into and out of your heart.
This is a time in your life when you are surrounded by immense happiness and creative energy. The ace of cups always signifies a wonderful new beginning, a period when you are eager to. initiate a new project that you will love. It both excites and challenges you. This is what keeps you motivated and challenged.
Smokey Quartz: Grounding, transmutation of negative energies, organization, manifestation of one's dreams.
One of the most powerful grounding stones. Smokey quartz cleanses the aura and energetic systems. Remember that technically their energy is only neutral. When we sense what we believe to be negative energy it is actually energy that is vibrating at a different frequency than our own and that feels uncomfortable to us. Smokey quartz aids with this sensation neutralizing the energies. When doing work with your higher Chakras or connecting with spirit, astral travel or dreamwork, Smokey Quartz can help you to get back into the body. This is the premier grounding stone.
Physical: Smokey quartz is best used to counter the negative effects of radiation, exposure to radioactive materials, medical radiation therapy and exposure to focused electromagnetic fields.
Emotional: It helps one to feel more engaged in the world and capable of creating or changing one's reality.
Spiritual: This is a spiritual grounding stone. It helps one to receive and utilize more high-frequency energy. Assists in aligning the physical body with an expanded range of light frequencies and is purifying and protecting.
Card # 3 Nine of Cups:
Nines are integration and cups are full of emotion. You are experiencing a flow of emotions. Everything you feel comes easily to the surface and into your awareness. Relationships may be moving forward and progressing. You are moving forward with a sense of purpose and direction.
This energy asks you to be constantly aware of the good luck you are enjoying during this time. A much-needed break. It is a blessed respite that can give you a sense of satisfaction and pleasure at a future time when things may not be so pleasant. Enjoy this time. No matter the reading this card is a "yes" or "your wish comes true" card. Not only will a current wish come true, but almost more than likely it will be granted in a happy way. Now is the time for all the wonderful gifts you have been yearning to come your way.
Rose Quartz: Love, gentleness, emotional healing, the release of stress, uniting with the divine.
Physical: Rose Quartz is a gently stabilizing stone used for physical heart trauma and imbalances. It can help the heart make the shift from stress-based physiology to the higher frequencies of love-based physiology.
Emotional: Calms the mind and assists in releasing worry, fear, anxiety and past emotional trauma.
Spiritual: Humble yet a most powerful of spiritual allies. It turns the heart towards love and bathes the body, mind, and spirit into a healing and enlightened frequency.
