This week I drew a card from Doreen Virtue's Ascended Masters Oracle Deck with the intention of receiving a message that all of us could benefit from. Oddly, I pulled four cards that wanted to jump out of my deck, and quickly realized these cards were for me in particular, directing me to be serious about meditating, channeling, and transcribing whatever message would be sent for all.
After receiving these fairly direct orders, I pulled a card with the intention of a worldly message, and the card pictured above was the one that was drawn. This card's message is about Crystals, from the Gaulish (French Celtic) Goddess Epona, goddess of horses and the moon. Before I was able to channel a message, I had to do some deep meditation as I had been guided to do. Today I did an even more serious meditation, to get myself attuned to the consciousness of the universe so that I could receive this message for you. Here is the message that was received in my communication with Epona:
Me: Epona-what is the message that you have for us all?
Epona: "Please light that candle-" (she was directing me to light a small orange candle on my bedside table, so I did) "Thank you. I would like to start by telling you great job, you did it. You followed your guidance that led you here. My message involves the power of crystals. It seems that with the internet and the fast-spreading of information that true ideas and messages get misconstrued. I am here to clear up any of that confusion. Let's begin with "energy". It seems to me that many people feel this term energy is a fooey-folklore-imagined type of idea that comes from "New Age" beliefs. Energy is truly light. The light you can see here on Earth from the sun is energy, the same as the light energy inside of each human that makes your blood warm. This same light - or energy - is present in all physical things, in all matter, and it is present in beings like me that not everyone can see. Matter must have energy to be matter. Your Earth science has shown that atoms make up every conceivable physical thing you see, and don't see, and atoms are energy, are light. Taking this same idea, you can apply it to everything in the natural world as well, and this is the true power of crystals that I wish to share. When people discuss the power of crystals, it can be easy to assume they are blindly putting faith into an object, much like relics of other religions. Crystals, however, are much different from relics. Crystals from in the earth, and are made by the compression of various minerals and elements over long periods of time. This means it takes significant earth energy to create a crystal, and this is where their true magic lies. Instead of worrying about the symbolism of crystals, or their meanings, I suggest going to a store where crystals are and letting yourself be drawn to them. The emotions and thoughts within you are sent out like signals, all the time, and if you intend on finding a crystal for a particular purpose, focus on that purpose, and the crystal that can help you will call out to you. Once you've found what type you like, hold many of them in your hand, one by one, to get a feel for which exact one called to you. It's as simple as that!"
Me: What about once you have a crystal?
Epona: "You must take care of it! It will do you no good to just have the thing sitting there; believing that acquiring a crystal will automatically improve your life will actually block you. Crystals are tools, tools for each individual to get closer and closer to their truths. You must use your crystals! Talk to them, with intention, and be willing to listen. If your listening skills still need developing, meditate with the crystals, ask them to speak to you in the easiest way you can hear. Even you have crystals that have been trying to talk to you! (She's telling me here that I still have some listening of my own to do) You must engage them and listen."
Me: Epona- what about cleansing crystals?
Epona: "I say that you will know when they need a true cleansing. Certain crystals love the full moon, this is more of a way to charge them though, others love the sun. It is simple really, you just have to ask them your question, and listen to their answer."
Me: Do you have any other message you would like to share with us?
Epona: "Yes, be gentle, with yourself now. This Earth of yours is a harsh place now. So many things are happening that are constantly frightening you all. Be gentle with yourself, the last thing you need is for your inner voice to be a harsh one in such a tumultuous world. Yes that's all, be gentle to yourself, and listen!" (and then she began to giggle.)
Me: Epona- thank you so much for speaking to us.
Epona: "Thank you for listening."
