    More Information About Agate:

    Agate comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns, many named after plants and animals. These names not only describe the stone's appearance, they add meaning to the stone's uses as well. Ancient Greeks called tawny-colored ones "lion skin agates"; these stones had great strength, and could counteract a wide range of poisons, especially scorpion stings. In Hebrew tradition, one could gain courage by plucking a hair from a lion's mane -- but if that seemed a little too ambitious to start out with, you could substitute a lion skin agate instead!

    On the other hand, ancient writers cautioned against keeping agates with the spotty pattern of hyena fur, claiming those would cause domestic trouble. The green of a tree agate would attract positive attention from the agricultural goddess Ceres; farmers not only wore this stone as an amulet, they'd also tie a piece to the horn of their ox while plowing. Across many cultures and times, we've come to see and make use of many connections between plant, animal and mineral kingdoms, as well as connections with eternal realms.

    Sacred Self Care & Opening to Your Soul’s Calling: An Interview with Cristin Smith

    Sacred Self Care & Opening to Your Soul’s Calling: An Interview with Cristin Smith

    Hi everyone, and welcome!

    I am super excited today to

    be interviewing the amazing

    Cristin Smith at Saffron and

    Sage about sacred self care and finding your soul's calling.







    Ashley Leavy: So, Cristin, thank you so much for being here to talk about sacred self care and opening your soul's calling with us.

    Cristin Smith: You're welcome. Thanks for having me!

    Ashley: I'm really excited about this interview because I think your business is a little bit different to anything else that we've really featured on the podcast before. You have such an amazing combination of products and classes and events. It's really exciting for me to speak with someone who's also in the health and wellness industry. You do so much.

    Would you mind taking a couple of minutes to introduce yourself to everyone and tell them a little bit about Saffron and Sage?

    Cristin: Absolutely! So, I'm Cristin Smith. I am the founder and owner of Saffron and Sage. We are a holistic health club located in Little Italy here in the heart of San Diego, and we really focus on preventative and integrated wellness.

    We do this through creating multi-sensory healing experiences for our clients. That could look like acupuncture, massage, energy therapy, or mineral therapy. It could look like yoga, breathwork, meditation, or sounds. Or it could be one of our workshops to really educate on things such as the science of mindfulness or one of our cooking workshops where we talk about the art of eating and intuitive eating and digestion.

    We're really focused on connecting mind, body, and spirit. Here in Saffron and Sage, we connect those through identifying thoughts, trauma, and toxins that have picked up residence in the brain and the body.

    We use an integrative way to really help our clients regain or maintain their wellbeing and we do that through our member-based approach.

    So, you can come in and take a class, or get a massage. Most of our clients have signed up for our membership that is two hundred dollars a month and it gives you access to one service every single month and eight classes in our studio. We're really having a great time supporting the executives, and entrepreneurs, and leaders in the community who are focused on doing the deep work. 

    Ashley: You know, I have to tell you, you are truly living the dream that I know a lot of our listeners would love to create in their own lives- running a wellness studio.

    Could you tell us a little bit about your journey and how that really got started for you, and how it all developed into the amazing success that it is today?

    Cristin: Sure! Yeah. So, interestingly enough, I come from the financial and insurance services sector. So I've been in business forever. This is my fourth company, but actually, the only company that I didn't realize I was starting and that grew organically out of my journey. It's been about a twelve-year journey I would say.

    After being so successful in financial services, I started looking at the interior landscape of my life and really exploring emotionally healthy spirituality. What does that look like?

    When you achieve your material goals, you start to ask the deeper questions and I was lucky enough to start exploring those in my early twenties.

    That really lead to this transition, and I started delving deeper into spiritual formation and spiritual practices like practicing solitude, silence, fasting, and all sorts of things. Shortly thereafter, that lead to a six month sabbatical in Mexico. I end up relocating to Tijuana, not Tulum. Most people think, "Oh my, you must live in a beautiful space." But I was in this incubator, if you will, for six months.

    I really focused on shedding my workaholism,

    More Information About the Healing Properties of Bumblebee Jasper:

    Jaspers are primarily quartz (silicon dioxide, or SO2) which has been broken down and reformed within the earth, often picking up traces of other minerals in the process. More complex jaspers may even include veins or small pieces of other minerals. Some jaspers are actually agates, rhyolites, or other stones. In general, jaspers are associated with grounding and connection to Mother Earth. The heavily patterned ones are often also associated with creativity and mental focus.

    Discovering Your Soul Frequency: An Interview with Shanna Lee

    Discovering Your Soul Frequency: An Interview with Shanna Lee

    Hello everyone and welcome. Today I have the privilege and honor of interviewing Shanna Lee. Shanna helps people heal their body and mind, access their inner guidance and create a powerful life with her soul frequency work. She is soulfully dedicated to you and she helps you raise your soul frequency by helping you create the body and life that you want.



    Ashley Leavy: So Shanna, thank you so, so much for taking the time to be here today.

    Shanna Lee: Thank you. I'm happy to be here. Thanks for having me.

    Ashley: I'm really excited about today's interview, because it's not often that I get to chat about something that is completely new to me.

    Would you mind starting out by telling all of us a little bit about yourself, your journey and your soul frequency work?

    Shanna: Yeah, so when I was a child, I basically had a gift of seeing life in a multi-dimensional way and I had 2 spirit friends who came onto the planet with me. It was like a sitcom, they literally should write a sitcom because my parents, of course, couldn't see them. But I could. And so there were situations where my mother or father would go to sit on the couch and I would say, “You're going to sit on my friend, what are you doing?”

    And so that went on for a while until I got to an age where I realized that other people weren't experiencing it. I was able to see them, but nobody else really in my life at the time could see them. I made a conscious decision as a little kid to stop seeing them and have them go away. And for much of my life, I decided that I was going to be normal, whatever normal is.

    So, I really looked around and said, “What are other people doing? I want to do that and built a life like that." I was just looking around at what it is to be alive and thinking "What do people deem as successful or happy or wonderful? I'll just emulate that.”

    I built a big career and a life and all of a sudden when I checked all the boxes on my list, I was like, “This is it. This is what I was going for.”

    I got pregnant around that time. And when I got pregnant with my son, I just had a massive reawakening. It was like everything that was connected to that little girl that I was who kind of gave up on what I could experience. The door just flew open and I really think that my son was the catalyst for that. All of a sudden here I was faced with truth. Just the deep truth of what I was experiencing in life and really not knowing how to cope with it.

    I was being led in all of these different ways. I was called to Sedona and to all of these different locations and given the information and I started to really ask and understand why I was being given this information and what value it had. At the beginning, I didn't feel like it had much value. It felt like it was scary and different.

    One of the things that I was being shown is the frequency that we resonate on -- our soul frequency.

    This is like our energetic fingerprint. I was being shown why this matters and how it gets established, and how we can shift that so that the outer experience in our life changes. I was supposed to teach people that we hear energy frequency or we hear energy vibration and really drill down into the details of who we are as an energetic being and how we're able to shift that over time. Also more on the practical level like, what does this mean for our life? And how do we build a practical three dimensional life, understanding who we are as energy?

    Ashley: So tell me...

    Was there something specific that triggered this understanding in you when you were going through that big change? Or was it really just that deep soul searching that led you to that discovery?

    Shanna: Well, I felt more and more distant for a while in the life I was living. This is typical with a lot of clients and people I know.

    More Information on the Healing Properties of Snowflake Obsidian:

    Obsidian is the most abundant form of naturally occurring glass. It is the result of volcanic lava cooling quickly. Technically obsidian may have any composition, but usually it’s a glass with inclusions of hematite and rhyolite. Snowflake Obsidian contains tiny white clusters of cristobalite.  It forms when, over time, the obsidian begins to crystalize. The “snow” in this obsidian is actually crystals of cristobalite, which is the same substance as quartz but with a distinctive crystal structure. As the obsidian continues to weather, it turns into something else, which is why you don’t find very ancient obsidian deposits.

    Because it’s easy to chip and forms a sharp point, it has been an invaluable material for toolmaking throughout history, thus contributing to the evolution of the human race. Many cultures also used it to make mirrors and figurines. In fact, one way archaeologists can trace the development of trade is by testing the composition of obsidian objects found along trade routes to find out where it originated, and thus how far it had traveled. More recently, obsidian lore has made its way into popular culture as “dragon glass” in Game of Thrones, or as a “witch’s blade.”

    If this stone comes to you it may indicate that you've been experiencing a time of cloudiness or darkness in your life that will soon part. This stone speaks in a very ancient language, so listen closely to what it's trying to tell you.

    Snowflake Obsidian Safety and Care:

    Obsidian breaks easily and forms sharp edges, so be careful you don’t get cut, and keep this in mind if children will handle it. When buying obsidian,
