    #058 - Sacred Practices for Welcoming New Crystals + Stones

    #058 - Sacred Practices for Welcoming New Crystals + Stones

    This afternoon I'm thinking about some of the sacred practices and rituals I draw on each time I welcome a new crystal to my collection.
    ​Over the weekend, this beauty arrived at my door. 
    Oh my, this is one yummy piece of candle quartz!
    As we started sinking into ritual together, I decided I would share a bit of my process with you. 
    This seems to be a very common crystal question that pops up in conversations, interviews, and in 
    It's kind of the 'so I've got this super cool crystal and now what' sort of question. 
    Maybe you remember asking that yourself somewhere along the way. 
    I know I certainly did. 
    You may have noticed this as 'feeling something that you can't quite explain it.' Or 'feeling called to carry it around, but not knowing why.'
    I remember a distinct moment when I felt like there must be something more I can do than read a couple great descriptions in my go-to crystal books.​ This moment was pivotal for me. And after years of diving deep into crystal study and practice, the questions that I once regarded as beginner questions I've now come to know as THE Questions.
    Working with crystals is all about creating relationship. This happens when we allow ourselves to feel awkward and get curious about why we have feelings we can explain or why we want to hold our crystal at our heart rather than in our hands. 
    The thing is, cultivating this relationship takes time and practice. It requires nurturing and nourishing. This begins with simple things like how we welcome a new crystal into our home. 
    In today's episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast, I share my favorite tips and tricks for connecting with new crystals and stones. 
    Regardless of whether you don a crystal newbie or crystal expert hat, I want to invite you into this episode with a playful and creative beginners mind. 
    This lovely piece of candle quartz channeled a potent (and unexpected) message at the beginning of this episode that speaks to this . . . yep, this candle quartz kinda rocks!

    Wishing you a joy-filled week.
    with love and crystals, Lori

    #057 - Message from the Crystal of the Month - Labradorite

    #057 - Message from the Crystal of the Month - Labradorite

    Ceremony + a crystal deep dive . . . this has been a central theme for me over the past week, and well, I guess throughout 2020. Haha.
    It's been so much fun. 
    One of the ways I chose to explore my relationship with the crystals and stones was through art. I've been painting. A lot. And I've got a growing collection.
    Last week I finished up what I thought was the final series of paintings for this collection, but within 24hrs a couple more crystals called out to be painted. One of them being the November stone of the month, Labradorite. 
    Labradorite has been a long time favorite of mine. I still remember where and when we first met. Something about this reflective crystal stood out to me on that day. It has since become my go-to crystal ally for navigating between worlds, taking a shamanic journey, listening within, and it's even the one I call upon when I feel like I need a bit of protection.
    Labradorite supports us in refining our expression by supporting us in attuning to our inner truths. How would your life be different if you gave yourself both time and space to do a little inner reflection, allowing your inner world to have a voice, and to allow that voice to be expressed?
    In today's episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast, I dive deeper into this conversation sharing wisdom from Labradorite.
    Wishing you a joy-filled week.
    with love and crystals, Lori

    #056 - The Sacred Unknown

    #056 - The Sacred Unknown

    I'm just popping in today to share a special episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast. 
    Over the past couple days I've been sitting in ceremony, tending to the fire, and holding space.
    This is an interesting time, on many levels. We are in the midst of a great and very sacred unknown. 
    That does not mean it's comfortable. Actually, for many of us the unknown is quite uncomfortable. 
    If that's you, know that you are not alone. You are in good company.
    We've been living in a time when fast answers and immediate results are available with a quick click or browser refresh. We know what to do with answers. They create a sense of safety.
    So what do we do when those quick answers are not available or when the circumstances of our life are in some way outside of our control. 
    It is a time to sink into sacred practice.
    In this episode I share both some thoughts and suggestions as to how you can lean into the unknown as a birthplace for possibility through sacred practice. 
     
    Wishing you a joy-filled week.
    with love and crystals, Lori

    #055 - Ceremony how-to's, tips, and tricks

    #055 - Ceremony how-to's, tips, and tricks

    Mmm . . . I'm so enjoying the energy of this weekend. 
    What have you been noticing? How have you been experiencing it?
    In my world, I've been finding myself immersed in deep conversations with friends, profound dreams, sinking into creative projects, and enjoying quiet, reflective time as I dive deeper into my study and practice of the ceremonial arts.
    Weeks ago, I received guidance to block off a bit of time on my calendar at the end of October / beginning of November. I'm really glad I listened.
    This mid-point of the fall season is a time when our intuitive senses feel heightened. 
    We may recognize or experience this as a clear(er) connection with the spiritual worlds. We may notice animal messengers popping in with a little love or we may awake with a clear message, words of wisdom, or sense of knowing. We may feel more connected with self, with spirit, and with all of life than we do at other times. 
    Often, this time of year is recognized as one in which the veils between the physical and spiritual worlds are thin and our ability to connect with the unseen or spiritual realms happens with greater ease. It is a rich time for honoring our ancestors and healing ancestral patterns. It is a time for love, compassion, and forgiveness. It is a time for ceremony. 
    In this week's episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast I dive into conversation around the difference between sacred practice, ritual, and ceremony and I share some of my favorite ceremony tips and tricks. 
    Wishing you a joy-filled week.
    with love and crystals, Lori

    #054 - Taking it to Ceremony. Let's talk about the benefits + when it's a great time to step in.

    #054 - Taking it to Ceremony. Let's talk about the benefits + when it's a great time to step in.

    Happy New Moon!
    Mmm . . . I'm really enjoying the energy of this new moon. 
    There is a lot happening in the skies right now​ (and well as here on earth), but something about this Libra New Moon feels like both a point of endings and new beginnings . . . like the energy of both a full moon and a new moon are alive and active right now. 
    You may be noticing this with a very active dreamtime, crystal clear messages, a deeper understanding about situations that previously had you stumped, and perhaps a bit of push/pull in conversations while a renewed sense of appreciation and love emerges with bits of clarity and understanding. 
    I know, that may sound like a bit of a dualistic ramble, and I guess in some ways it is. 
    We are in the midst of a lot of opposition and it is through that opposition that clarity shows up.
    So, however you are experiencing this new moon, I want to invite you to take a deep breath, step out of whatever is feeling a bit chaotic, and create space to discover what's been hidden.
    Ceremony is a great ally for this . . . and it's also the theme for this week's episode of the Crystal Shaman Life Podcast.
    Ceremony helps us to step into sacred time and sacred space where infinite possibilities are available to us. 
    It offers an opportunity to connect with spirit and to receive messages and insights that we miss in our day to day busyness. 
    This week's episode is the first of a 2 part series. This week we dive into conversation about the benefits of ceremony and when it is a great time to step into one. 
    Wishing you a joy-filled week.
    with love and crystals, Lori
