May we find ways to live more simply in order to have more time and energy to change the system of injustice that exists in the world. -Thich Nhat Hanh

Today’s inspiration comes from this interview with Marianne Williamson, author of The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money and Miracles. I don’t know what to tell you other than it is incredibly enlightening, inspirational, and healing. A half an hour well spent. Enjoy!

Are you worried? Do you have many “what if” thoughts? You are identified with your mind, which is projecting itself into an imaginary future situation and creating fear. There is no way that you can cope with such a situation, because it doesn’t exist. It’s a mental phantom. You can stop this health and like-corroding insanity simply by acknowledging the present moment. Become aware of your breathing. Feel the air flowing in and out of your body. Feel your inner energy field. All that you ever have to deal with, cope with, in real life—as opposed to imaginary mind projections—is this moment. Ask yourself what “problem” you have right now, not next year, tomorrow, or five minutes from now. What is wrong with this moment? You can always cope with the Now, but you can never cope with the future—nor do you have to. The answer, the strength, the right action or the resource will be there when you need it, not before, not after. –Eckhart Tolle

Healing Properties of Quartz Clusters

I have found quartz clusters to be a very effective tool for my own personal healing and growth as well as in my work with others. When we are taken back by their beauty, we are responding to aesthetics as well as recognizing the healing power that is both within the crystal and ourselves.

First, quartz clusters make a great centerpiece for a grid. They hold the frequency of your intention (make sure your intention is crystal clear!) and amplify the vibration of the crystals that you place around it.

They are amazing allies in energy work. If you want to use crystals as a part of your own personal healing, find seven small quartz clusters, one for each chakra. It’s as simple as that. This is a really powerful layout.

Energy becomes stuck in our chakras, disrupting flow and in many cases promoting physical or mental illness. Quartz clusters, when placed on a chakra, break up blockages and jump-start your process of release.

Make sure you follow this up with lots of loving kindness towards yourself, and an effort to care for yourself on a physical, mental, and emotional level. If you don’t, you will likely end up with the same blockage again. Make sure your work with crystals is part of a complete wellness plan and you’re not relying on them alone to solve your problems.

Clusters can also be used in your home or office to keep the energy moving. If you do regular space clearings, place them in corners, where energy easily becomes trapped, while you work.

If you’re working to open your crown chakra, this is a great stone to meditate with.

Anything I missed?

Peace and Blessings.

“Our capacity to make peace with another person and with the world depends very much on our capacity to make peace with ourselves. If we are at war with our parents, our family, our society, or our church, there is probably a war going on inside us also, so the most basic work for peace is to return to ourselves and create harmony among the elements within us–our feelings, our perceptions, and our mental states. That is why the practice of meditation, looking deeply, is so important. We must recognize and accept the conflicting elements that are within us and their underlying causes. It takes time, but the effort always bears fruit.”
