Severing Draining Energy Connections: Waning Moon Crystal Magic w/ Black Obsidian

 

The new and full moons have become powerful focal points in our community, but when we tune into the additional moon phases (the quarter moons), the magical rhythm of our lives can take on greater form and meaning.

We’ve now entered the 4th quarter or waning crescent moon (until the new moon on May 4th at 6:45pm).

This phase is a deep and internal time of facing that which we need to heal or release, or cultivate in the darker or more hidden parts of ourselves (psychic + intuitive development, past life or karmic healing, and banishment).

It’s timing is elegant and purposeful, because if we use it wisely, it empowers us for the new moon and our intentions.

Manifestation tip: The art of manifestation requires energy + focus. If your energy is split in too many directions in your life, or if it’s being too drained, there’s less potency available to help activate and manifest your intentions into being.

I’ve included a ritual below that will guide you through working with the energy of the waning crescent moon phase, and using a piece of black obsidian to sever draining energy connections that are pulling you away from your potential, holding you back from positive co-creation.

Happy birthday April babies! Your birthstone, the diamond, is the rich cousin of graphite.

Good Witches Homestead

April’s birthstone is the diamond.

Diamonds are the rich cousins of graphite. Both are crystalline forms of pure carbon. The enormous differences in their properties are a result of the way the carbon atoms are bonded together. In graphite, carbon atoms are arranged in sheets that easily slide past each other, which makes graphite ideal as a lubricant and, of course, pencil lead. Diamond crystals, on the other hand, are a tight-fisted network of carbon atoms securely held in four directions, making it the hardest naturally-occurring substance in the world.

In order to achieve such a compact and strongly-held network of carbon atoms, it is believed that diamonds must have crystallized deep under the Earth’s surface. At these depths the proper conditions for the formation of diamonds exist; at 90 to 120 miles deep, pressures are more than 65,000 times that of the atmosphere at the Earth’s surface, with temperatures…

Crystal Empowerment For Empaths

Crystal Empowerment for Empaths / krista-mitchell.com

Are you an empath?

Are you someone who’s so sensitive to the feelings of others that you experience them as your own?

If so, you’re in good company: I’m an empath, too.

And I’ll be completely honest with you: I went through energy hell living in New York City. It’s a pressure-cooker, and I was doing spiritual healing which required me to be extra in tune.

It was overwhelming, to say the least.

It took me a looooong time to learn how to manage being an empath, but I never saw it as a liability – I saw it as a strength.

It was how I was able to tune in so powerfully to my crystals, read my clients’ energy systems, have a sensory awareness of the vibes in a space when I was doing a space clearing.

It was also how I was able to fill a room with healing presence, because yeah, empaths aren’t just receiving, they’re projecting, too.

It was a gift that I learned to nurture.

So the # of messages I get on a weekly basis from empaths asking me how they can protect themselves from other peoples’ feelings concerns me.

It concerns me because it means that they’re not in their power. They’re exposed, vulnerable, suffering. And it’s my experience that the empaths of the world are our healers, our artists, teachers, guides.

CRYSTALS FOR MERCURY RETROGRADE + THE PISCES NEW MOON

Crystals for Mercury Retrograde + the Pisces New Moon

We have a sun and moon in Pisces, Mercury went retrograde at 1:19pm ET today, AND, for some lucky countries, there’s also a time zone change happening at 2am ET this Sunday…

This is going to be fun! 🤪😱🤯🤬😵

My advice to the whole planet for the next 23 days: GROUND! GROUND! GROUND!

While many people focus on the negatives when in Mercury retro, there are a lot of positive aspects, but in order to benefit from them you need to be able to stay grounded and go with the flow.

Best crystals for this: crystals that link the intuitive power of the 3rd eye chakra with the grounding and stabilizing power of the root chakra.

Your intuition is going to be very powerful during this Piscean time, anyway, but by grounding its guidance in your root chakra it will be easier for you to follow it and be guided through this phase smoothly.

Feeling centered and grounded in your root chakra is also what will help you to feel more confident and empowered in going with the flow, and to help you keep on top of things.

March Birthstones – Zodiac Gemstones: Aquamarine, Bloodstone, Topaz, & more!

Good Witches Homestead

There are two gemstones on the modern birthstone list which connect with March and they are Aquamarine and Bloodstone. Aquamarine is a beautiful gemstone with rich color – it is known to be a symbol of youth, health, and hope. Aquamarine’s color ranges from stunning blues that can have a touch of green to intense shades that display depth in tone and color. It is a lovely stone that makes beautiful jewelry and gives a wonderful accent to spring and summer wardrobes.

Bloodstone is characterized by its dark green color and the presence of red, blood-like inclusions, which is how it earned its descriptive gemstone name. Bloodstone was once the original birthstone for March, but it was later replaced by aquamarine. Today, bloodstone is still an alternative birthstone for March and it is the zodiacal stone for Aries. Bloodstone is said to be a healing stone. Bloodstone works well in…

CRYSTAL POWER FOR THE NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS: BECOMING

Aquarius New Moon Crystals / krista-mitchell.com

 

So after months of shifting, releasing, facing things, planning… Isn’t it nice to be emerging into energy that’s all about us BECOMING?

If you’re ready for the good times to roll, then start rolling, because by many accounts this is an auspicious new moon especially for new projects!

Of course, as is always the case with Universal energy, it’s all in how you use it.

Aquarius represents the mind, the greater good, the sum of the parts, the group vs. the individual. It is a sign of humanitarianism, selflessness, and ideals.

As is mirrored by the energy of this new moon, we’re in a place now where, having done the work, we can forge new paths and open up to new ways of being.

The challenge is in grounding all of this mental energy: We need to pursue the plans we’ve made and the ideas we’re having in order for them to happen. And we also need to be mindful of overcoming any fear or resistance that may come up in response to the newness of it all.

I freely admit that, while I have been consciously working towards all of this in my own experience, there’s also a fear popping up of who I will BE in this new paradigm of mine. What will my life be like, what will I be like? It’s unchartered territory which is exciting but also shoves me out of my comfort zone. And my ego really likes my comfort zone.

It’s a very human, unconscious fear of change and of the unknown. But while that fear feels it’s serving to protect me, I know it will only succeed in holding me back and keeping me from feeling happier and more fulfilled.

Does any of this resonate for you?

If so, my Akashic guides have some advice and also a little experiment for you to for this lunar cycle!

SOME POST-ECLIPSE CRYSTAL + AKASHIC GUIDANCE

By Krista Mitchell

Post-Eclipse Crystal + Akashic Guidance / krista-mitchell.com

Hello everyone! Recovering from that epic full moon eclipse this past week?

Key word seems to be PURGE – a lot of things coming up for people to heal and release.

In turn, this has created clarity, space, and focus on how we lead our lives, which we can now use to co-create a new, different, or better reality!

What’s exciting is that in less than two weeks we have THREE occurrences ushering in energy to support our new paradigms:

Imbolc, from the evening of February 1st – 2nd, is a Goddess festival celebrating the return of the maiden Spring and a blessing of the land. I’ll be writing more about this for you next week!

The new moon in Aquarius on Monday the 4th.

The Lunar New Year (year of the piggie-wiggie!) on the 5th.

BUT FIRST! Before we gallop gaily into fresh pastures, we need to make sure we’re on solid ground.

EASY MORNING CRYSTAL RITUAL

By Krista Mitchell

Easy-morning-crystal-ritual-/ krista-mitchell.com

I start every day with my spiritual practice. My students will tell you that I’m big on maintaining a consistent daily energy + spiritual routine, and of course crystals are always a big part of that for me.

Even if it’s just taking five minutes to tune in to myself, center, and connect with my soul or the Universe, those five minutes can initiate a palpable energy shift that can help set up my whole day for the better.

If you’ve been considering ways to integrate crystal energy into your daily life, or for ways to add an energy healing component to your daily spiritual practice, the following morning crystal ritual is easy, quick, and effective.

I do this every morning, and by evening when I reflect back I can see how much it affected how productive, less stressful, creative, and happy my day went in general.

Foundation Stone Spell

This Crooked Crown

This is a spell designed to help protect them home in an active manner. When done, this spell will automatically absorb negative energy without you having to touch a thing. There is some spell maintenance, but otherwise, this spell will work on its own.

The idea behind this spell is the concept of cornerstones within the foundation of a house. Historically, these stones were carefully chosen and often had folkloric or even magical implications. You’ll probably need to dive a bit into gem and crystal lore to find the right stone or stones for you.

There’s two ways to do this spell and both are outlined below. The spell works the nearly the same for both, so pick whichever fits your style best.

Method One – One Stone

Ingredients

  • A stone selected from your property
  • A quiet yet obvious place to put it
  • Purified or blessed water (see notes)
