Creating Sacred Space

How’s the energy in your space

I’ve been thinking a lot about our spaces lately – in many ways they’ve become more important to us than ever, and a place where many of us are now spending most of our time (or not enough).

The space we live in is an energetic extension of ourselves. What affects us will affect the energy of our space (and vice versa).

In a time when we’ve seen a dramatic increase in fear, stress, uncertainty, and an outpouring of negativity, the more we can hold ourselves + our spaces sacred, the more we all benefit.

While we may all know the importance of clearing the energy of our space, it bears reminding, especially given that some may be feeling too overwhelmed or tired to prioritize it (it’s been my experience that this is when we most need to do it).

I’m linking here a couple of articles I’ve written on how to clear your spacecrystals that can help clear your space, and also, tips on how to energetically protect yourself in your sleep, as sleep disruptions are on the rise…

I’ve also included below a post that my esteemed friend Nicholas Pepe wrote yesterday on creating sacred space before and after distance healing sessions.

Whether you’re giving or receiving a distance healing session, I strongly encourage you to adopt the below practices (if you haven’t already).

Also, today is the last day to enroll in Nicholas’ Distance Healing Certification at the Crystalline Academy!

If any of you healers out keep feeling nudged towards taking this course, I strongly encourage you to sign up.

It’s self-paced, so you can start now, or in January. You can accelerate through the program, or take your time. What you can’t do is sign up at another time, because as of right now it’s not on the 2021 program schedule!

So if you’d like to learn from a master in this modality, now is the time.

Keep holding yourselves and each other sacred.

🙏

Sweet blessings to you,

Krista

BECOMING YOUR DREAM: A LEO MOON CRYSTAL RITUAL

Becoming Your Dream: A Leo Moon Crystal Ritual / www.krista-mitchell.com

Blessed new moon 🌚

This is an interesting one, because astrologically-speaking, this new moon went into Cancer a second time before going void of course and changing into Leo at 4:16pm ET today (where it will remain there until it goes void of course tomorrow at 8:27pm ET).

I got to the game late, only attuning to the moon through the crystal consciousness at about 4:50pm, so while everyone else is posting about the Cancer new moon, here I am writing about the Leo moon!

I’ve decided to go with it, because honestly, I think many of us (myself included) could do with a little Leo moon juice + some joyfully mad-passionate crystals right now…

MY LITTLE LEO MOON CRYSTAL RITUAL

When I tuned in to this new moon energy through the crystal consciousness, this question came through to me:

“What if you could be the biggest, boldest version of yourself?

This world is demanding the best of us – what does that mean to you?

The radiance of Leo is the enlightened leader. The creator. The warrior. The golden-crowned heart.

What does that inspire inside you?

What dreams or visions does that stir?”

Here’s something I have learned from my experience: Anything you can envision or desire, that feels in alignment with your heart and spirit, already exists as a spark in your soul.

This means that the energetic alignment, the blueprint that can manifest, co-create, or attract it into being only needs your energy to fuel it.Your energy is your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions, all focused in the direction of your vision.

What can halt us is believing in lack: not enough courage, or resources, or inspiration, or worth to see it through.

Here are the crystals, all very Leonine in nature, that are speaking up for you right now in favor of your dream:

CRYSTAL HEALING RITUAL FOR THE SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON ECLIPSE

Crystal Ritual for the Sagittarius Full Moon Solar Eclipse with Blue Kyanite: Deep Listening, Inner Activation, Truth, Understanding / www.krista-mitchell.com

Many people might expect awakening and evolution to be light-filled, radiant, even peaceful, but awakening is an act of creation and becoming, and the creative forces of this world are often also required to be those of destruction, unravelling, dismantling, or un-making (ie: fire, ice, death, water, the shedding of skins) in order to create.

Growth, healing, and change are often painful or creative/destructive/creative processes because they force us to let go of things: how (and with what) we identify, our beliefs, comfort zones, old wounds that have become companions, our gremlins, parts of our past, dreams of the future.

(Important note: I am talking about creative forces of destruction in nature and in the nature of healing, NOT destruction purely for the sake of causing pain, harm, or chaos. The former is in service to the cycle of life and the healing process, the latter I see in service to the dark spirits of this world).

These processes bring challenges because they trigger what needs to be seen, heard, faced, accepted, healed, resolved, and reintegrated.

In essence, we cannot evolve without facing our inner shadows. There is no awakening, growth, or positive change without facing the shadow.

It’s never easy or comfortable, or pretty. It’s badass territory, where angels fear to tread. And this is why so many people choose not to go there, choose complacency, apathy, even silence.

I had a teacher once who said “Tyranny reigns over silence.” The power of that statement has never left me. And I had another one who said “Sometimes you have to go to war.” That one’s never left me, either.

There’s great turmoil in the world right now – uprising, revolution, demands for justice, and they’re happening because this is part of the evolution. We can’t be awake while still being asleep to what’s happening around us, to social injustice, to systemic racism.

We also can’t be awake if we’re asleep to our own shadow selves.

I’ve been in deep listening this week, and I’ve also been unpacking and sorting through unconscious bias and conditioning in my own shadow. As a healer, and human, my inner work and outer work never ends. There’s always another layer of the onion, there’s always another shadow aspect to work through. And conditioning can run deep – through generations and lifetimes of ancestral and spiritual DNA, as well as what we’ve experienced in our own time.

This full moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius (exact on 6/5/20 at 3:12pm ET), while the sun remains in Gemini, is an opportunity for us to look within, to learn, to grow, and to face our inner duality.

Healing happens in the space between light and dark. Expansion of consciousness happens in the embrace of light and dark.

It’s important to sit with that for a bit.

CRYSTALS FOR WHEN YOU’RE NOT OK

It’s ok to not feel ok right now. Or to have good days and bad.

You don’t need to have this handled. To be a grounded god/dess. To be riding the wave of this energy like a MF.

Healers, especially, can put themselves under a lot of pressure to be self-sufficient. To show up for others, first. To be the light.

I know my tribe ❤️. And I know that most of you in this community are healers in one way, or another.

I’ve had days where I’ve broken down or lost my sh**. And I’ve had to go through it, to honor the feelings. I’ve also needed that blessed release.

But maybe you’re in a situation where you can’t do that, or maybe not right now. Or you really do have to show up for others first, and be the light.

It’s still ok to not be ok.

We all need healing in so many ways, and there will be time for that, but here are some core crystals that can support you right now.

Note the word SUPPORT. This isn’t about making the feelings go away. The feelings are not wrong or accidental. And you are not bad or weak for feeling them, or for having trouble coping.

For those of you who don’t have the time (or headspace) to read a long blog post, I’ve got them listed in a short summary right here:

Rose quartz: for soothing and to receive love. Hold it in your receptive hand or wear it over your heart chakra.

CRYSTAL HEALING TIPS FOR MOMENTS OF PANIC, FEAR, AND ANXIETY

Crystal Healing Tips for Moments of Panic, Fear, Anxiety / www.krista-mitchell.com

Hello loves!

I hope, as you read this, that you are all safe and well.

Everything hit me like a wave at the end of last week. I felt devastated, afraid, heartbroken, uncertain. Cried my eyes out. Couldn’t work for couple of days. Just went into extreme self-care mode.

I let the feelings wash through me. I allowed myself to grieve. Then I turned to my crystals, my faith, family, and spiritual practice for support.

I’m sharing this because we ALL need love and support right now. We also all need to honor how we’re feeling.

I had one of those 3am moments of what I call “electric fear”. I woke up with that fear energy coursing through my body. I put my hands on my solar plexus to try and calm myself, and then I heard my guidance say:

“It’s ok to feel the fear. It’s ok to feel what you’re feeling. But remember that you can CHOOSE how to respond.”

In that moment, I felt love and courage flow through me.

The key is to not seek to suppress what we’re feeling. We’re feeling our feelings for a reason

It’s how we respond that will help determine how we all pull through this.

I’ve put together some simple crystal suggestions plus crystal healing tips to help provide some of that support you may be needing.

CELESTITE: A HEALING RITUAL FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION

Celestite: A Healing Ritual for Divine Intervention / www.krista-mitchell.com

Celestite is a strontium sulfate crystal whose fragility belies its majestic healing power.

Its name derives from the Latin “heavenly”.

We work with celestite a LOT in my Pro Crystal Healer program to help reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and to deepen our exploration and development of our spiritual selves.

In meditation it helps connect us with the “something more” that we all are, and its high frequency vibrations opens divine channels that can help lead us on our soul path, discover our life purpose, and embody more of our higher potential.

It resonates with the heart, throat, 3rd eye, and crown chakras.

ALLOWING FEAR TO BE YOUR TEACHER: CRYSTAL HEALING FOR THE SCORPIO NEW MOON

Allowing FEAR to be Your Teacher: Crystal Healing for the Scorpio New Moon. www.krista-mitchell.com

We entered the Scorpio new moon phase last night at 11:39pm ET, and I had trouble sleeping.

Anxiety, fears, shadow aspects coming up.

Scorpio is all about the dark places, the hidden and unseen, our innermost motivations and desires. It’s intensity, death, lust, magick, psychism, power, deep emotions, and manifestation.

Scorpio moons tend to have a powerful effect on me, but especially the new moon which occurs here in the North during what’s considered the descent – the dark time of the year – before the reemergence of the sun’s power at the winter solstice.

It’s a time for introspection and preparation – but for what? For an inevitable healing and growth period.

If we follow the wheel of the year, we’ve spent the first three quarters working towards our goals and harvests, actual or symbolic. It’s an active time of doing, achieving, failing, succeeding, and continuing on. Sometimes we stay on track, sometimes we stray. And sometimes, we discover that what we’ve been working towards isn’t quite what’s working for us or making us happy.

This time of year forces us to pause, reflect, and take a good hard look at what’s in the darker parts of ourselves. Our fears, shames, insecurities, ignored intuitions, lack of attention, are all things that are part of what make us human, and also the building blocks for what holds us back.

We like to avoid these things, and yet, if we approach them as teachers, they are enormous healing allies.

Crystals that help you to face and converse with your fears isn’t as popular a topic as crystals that help you to diminish your feelings of anxiety, or protect your energy. Let’s be real: we like to avoid what feels like sh**.

ACTIVATING THE SACRED WARRIOR WITHIN: CRYSTAL RITUAL FOR THE ARIES FULL MOON

Activating the Sacred Warrior Within: Aries Full Moon Crystal Ritual / www.krista-mitchell.com

This month’s crystal healing ritual is inspired by the energies of the upcoming Aries full moon, but also some guidance I’ve been receiving while channeling from stromatolite (pictured above).

I’ve been privately channeling from stromatolite for a while. Geologically stromatolites are significant because “they provide [geological] records of ancient life on Earth” (wikipedia). What I have found is that they also provide us with records of wisdom from ancient life on Earth.

Just as crystals can be record-keepers, so can fossils, and this fossil in particular connects us with old Earth wisdom and teachings that can be of service to us now.

Each time I channel, I feel as though I am met with an ancient circle of spirit elders: sages, healers, teachers, and guides from human history. I often vision them as sitting in a circle round a fire.

One of the messages that came through was the need to activate and engage with the sacred warrior. And as I sat here and contemplated the energies of the full moon in Aries, I realized it fit!

Aries is the warrior and the defender, and this full moon’s energy is empowering us to face our challenges and fight for what we believe in. To become the sacred warrior.

As human beings we embody all known archetypes, and we can call on or activate any given archetype within us whenever we need.

When facing any kind of challenge in our lives, if we wish to take a loving, empowered, healing approach, we can engage our inner sacred warrior to help embolden us and lead the way.

Could you use a little sacred warrior energy right now?

Or is there a sacred warrior in you who’s ready to take a stand for something in your life, or world?

If so, keep reading…

My Fave Fall Crystal Combos!

My Fave Fall Crystal Combos! / krista-mitchell.com

I love autumn! The crisp, cool breeze feels invigorating after long, hot, summer days.

The trees put on their show of colors (interesting fact: I read that the autumn colors of leaves are their natural color being revealed as the chlorophyll fades).

And the days grow shorter and cooler, prompting a return to wearing warm, snuggly clothing, and supping on comfort foods.

As the seasons and the planetary energy shifts, and we approach the autumnal equinox, our energy needs shift, too.

Our relationship to the land, its rhythms and cycles, is still of primal importance to us, even if many are now living modern, urban lifestyles.

The experiences, feeling, and patterns of our ancestors still reside in our DNA, genetically passed down through the generations.

The fall equinox is a full-fledged harvest festival, when thanks is given for the abundance of Mother Earth.

We celebrate the fruition of the seeds we’ve sown: the bounty we’ve gathered from the earth, as well as the bounty of our achievements.

The modern day spiritual spin on the meaning and significance of the autumnal equinox focuses on balancing the light and dark forces within us (our radiance vs. our shadow selves), but in days of old it marked the decline of the power and vitality of the sun, and the inevitable death of its associated gods.

The Goddess becomes the Crone, and is venerated for her age and wisdom.

We’re reminded that there is a cycle and time for all things, and that all things and phases in our lives have value.

It’s important to remember this in times of turbulence and fear: Life goes on. Death happens. Rebirth is inevitable. This was understood by our ancestors, but we’re in an age of disconnect — or at least it seems that way. I often wonder if we’re more in a space between death and rebirth, where old things are falling away, and there’s a birth of new consciousness happening.

But it’s still all part of the cycle.

Get settled and comfortable, close your eyes, hold your crystal.

And we begin…

What is your boldest dream?

Not fantasy, but dream, desire, soul-based or heart-centered wish?

It doesn’t have to be grandiose, but it could be something you keep thinking about, picturing, or wishing, but then dismiss as impossible.

The frequencies coming from this full moon keep telling me it IS possible!

So often we’re conditioned to train our thoughts on he reasons why not.

This moon is encouraging you to change from “Why not’s” to “What If?”
