The Spiral

secretsoftheserpent

The spiral is another symbol that was used all over the world.  Every ancient society used it.   Most people think that every civilization had a different meaning for it.  I’ve seen it called a symbol of the sun, the seed of life symbol, symbol of death and rebirth and the symbol of the origin of the Universe.  Though symbols have multiple meanings, there is an original meaning that all the meanings are pulled from.  Someone finds a piece of the truth and thinks they have the complete answer or they just make something up and try to fit it into the mainstream narrative.  The spiral is showing a feminine energy.  An energy that is in every man and women.  As a matter of fact it is everywhere.  It has been lost because we live in a patriarchal society.  Time to…

Planting Moon Home Protection Spell

Planting+Moon.jpg

We are living in anxious, bizarre, and very unknown times. So as mystical sensitive empathetic people it’s important for us to keep our environment clear especially while we are all self-isolating.

During this time we really encourage you to cleanse your home not just physically but energetically. This will bring your home back into alignment with your center. It’s important to regularly clear out energy and baggage that is not yours to carry and that’s building up your space. Clear your space so you can feel more grounded and centered through all of this.

The Planting Moon is all about preparation. The seeds have been sown and now it’s time to make sure the foundations-the ground that the seeds are sewn into, are prepared and ready for renewal and new growth.

Your foundation and home is so important for your personal growth so you can thrive and you can feel abundant during this time of quarantine.

So let’s clear our homes and protect them energetically so we can feel more anchored and rooted in our center, in our truth, power, and love!

Wildcrafting Druidry: Getting Started in Your Ecosystem

The Druid's Garden

One of the strengths of AODA druidry is our emphasis on developing what Gordon Cooper calls “wildcrafted druidries“–these are druid practices that are localized to our place, rooted in our ecosystems, and designed in conjunction with the world and landscapes immediately around us. Wildcrafted druidries are in line with the recently released seven principles of AODA, principles that include rooting nature at the center of our practice, practicing nature reverence, working with cycles and seasons, and wildcrafting druidry.  But taking the first steps into wildcrafting your practice can be a bit overwhelming, and can be complicated by a number of other factors. What if you are a new druid and don’t know much about your ecosystem? What if you are a druid who is traveling a lot or is transient? What if you are a druid who just moved to a new ecosystem after establishing yourself firmly…

The Energies of April 2020

Good Witches Homestead

Energies of April, Super Full Moon, the Influence of Aries, Planetary Reset, Spiritual Awakening, Meditation.

The cosmic line-up for April is focussed on providing exactly the right dynamics to encourage further transformation and planetary evolution.

The driving force behind this potent energy is the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn which is exact on April 4th. This is a call for deep energy cleanse and a request for soul growth both individually and collectively. Pluto is calling for permanent change and Jupiter is providing the doorway into the expansive new possibilities that are available through that process of transformational change.

There is a potent opportunity here to move into a completely new level of soul power, one that we have not been able to embody for many lifetimes. You might feel this as a surge of soul force flowing through you, possibly moving your life into a different trajectory…

Number 23 Symbolism

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Article can be shared in its entirety with link and credit. I do not work with sun medicine wheels, I work with the Lunar Wheel within its 13 Moon’s two  Seasons: The Season of Night (Autumn/Winter) and the Season of Fire (Spring/Summer). This is a much older way of living, older than paganism and falls back into the timeless shaman or nature’s eras of earth when there was no time (pre-history ie pre his story).

Life was divided into four seasons and those four seasons were divided into the solstice and equinox yearly half moon (night) and half sun (fire) earth. I have lived by this under the 13 moon cycles for most of my life in my folk healing work, my collective work and my life as a dreamer (last level of a shaman). 

Since I live by the moon and not the sun…

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.

A BEDTIME CRYSTAL RITUAL FOR PEACE

A Bedtime Crystal Ritual for Peace / krista-mitchell.com

It’s been my experience that sleep can be hard to come by in spring, anyway, due to the time change and cyclical shifting of the seasons.

I reckon it’s tough for even more people right now, with the fear and uncertainty many are experiencing.

And especially tough for empaths and sensitives, who feel it all.

It’s also hard for healers who feel the call to action but are required to stay at home. All that energy gets pent up and starts to feel like anxiety, which can make it hard to sleep.

The mind has trouble quieting. The adrenaline keeps pumping in reaction to the stress and fear. There’s that wired/tired feeling. And we take it all to bed with us.

Does this resonate for any of you?

This bedtime crystal ritual came to me today, and to be honest, I need it to – I find the only time I’m making for my own self-care right now is at the very start and very end of my days.

It’s just too busy in between.

But I need my rest. And we all need space for some peace and light to come in, creating moments of soul care and respite.

This ritual is simple, sweet, and loving.

I hope it is of service to you. 🙏🏻

Finding Balance at the Spring Equinox: A Sun Ritual Using the Three Druid Elements

The Druid's Garden

The Spring Equinox, Alban Eiler, is the time when the light and the dark in the world are in balance. The timing of the Equinox is fortuitous–this time of balance–after such turmoil in the world. Here in the last two weeks here in the US, we’ve been on a whirlwind of change where nearly every person’s life has been radically disrupted and changed due to the global pandemic. Given the circumstances of where we are, today, I’d like to offer a balancing ritual for Spring Equinox that you can do personally to help bring balance into your life.  (I’m posting this a few days early from my usual weekly post so that you have it in time for the Equinox!)
