Abundance with Crystals

Every once in a while, the issue of ‘abundance’ surfaces: money worries; job transitions leave them with money hopes and fears; etc etc etc.
Money, wealth, abundance, fear of not having enough indicates a root chakra imbalance.
Once this chakra has been brought into balance it is easier to address higher level chakras right after that.

There are many ways to heal the root chakra. Here are some insights about how to use crystals to stimulate abundance and wealth and rebalance the belief system on related issues.
There is a huge selection of gemstones and crystals that can help you attract prosperity.
Let me introduce them to you one by one, as each has a different set of qualities.
First, allow me to describe how to use them

How to use your Crystals

  • First step is clarify your intention. Ask yourself what is this grid for? Sit quietly for a moment. Find your center or that quiet place where you are completely focused and still. Be as specific and clear on your intention as you can be. Remember, the grid will be a tool to amplify these thoughts, feelings and/or intents, so you want to state your intention with absolute clarity.
  • The second step is to choose the location where the grid is going to be held.
  • Third is to clear that place and yourself from any negative energy that might be in that location. You may burn incense or sage to smudge the area, go around with a bell or singing bowl, or use another cleansing technique.
  • The fourth step is to make a grid. A grid helps you focus your intention using the energy of crystals to amplify and manifest that intention. Consider where you are going to locate your grid as you would like your grid to stay intact for a while, undisturbed. There is no right or wrong way. Size and number or stones is up to you. Leave some space between stones. If they roll off, consider that perhaps they are moving to a better position! Follow your instinct. A thought for consideration: use the Rose Quartz as the center stone if you wish to imbue the environment with overall abundance energies.
  • The fifth step, once the grid is set up to your liking, is to activate the grid by using a quartz wand and point to the central crystal and then out to each crystal in the grid. Go in one direction, and hold the perfect vision of what you want while you are doing this, not allowing any negative thought come into the process.

Energy of Number 6

Image

The number 6 vibrates to the energies of ownership, possessions and material wealth, love of home and family, care of others and nurturing, empathy and sympathy, responsibility and selflessness, provision and providing for the self and others. Number 6 signifies the need for stability in all aspects of your life.

The message of Number 6 is to keep a balance between your material goals and aspirations, and your spiritual, inner-self. Be grateful for what you have already, as an ‘attitude of gratitude’ encourages further positive abundance.

Number 6 encourages you to be loving, caring and nurturing of yourself and others.

ImageSpirit of Six: Self-harmony; compassion; love; service; social responsibility; beauty, the Arts; generous; concerned; caring; children; balance; community service.

Influence of Six: Six is a center for harmony and balance, an excellent place for a family, especially with children. Six can contribute to feelings of wanting to help others and community service. Six is also excellent for those wanting to develop their artistic abilities or for nurturing and caring, such as a counselor or medical professional. In a Six it is easy to get to the heart of matters in a caring and compassionate way. Close loving relationships with your partner, roommates, friends and family come to life in a Six. Beautifying a Six as well as the surrounding area will drive those under this influence.

Challenges of a Six: Six is so geared toward giving there may be a tendency to give too much — seek a balance between giving to others and taking care of your own needs. The comfort in a Six may make one reclusive — push yourself out into the wide world!

Readers

I am often asked:  What exactly is a Psychic? or a Clairvoyant?  What does channeling mean?

I myself was not too sure what exactly they all meant; though knew they had something to do with Readers.  So decided to do some research and this is what I found

Psychic Medium – someone who serves as an intermediary between the living and the dead

Clairvoyant –  a person who is able to detect things that aren’t normally recognized by the senses

Channeling –  a person who conveys thoughts or energy from a source believed to be outside the person’s body or conscious mind; specifically : one who speaks for nonphysical beings or spirits

Armed with this knowledge, it should now make it easier to visit Readers.  Depending on what you feel comfortable with.

Yes, there are a lot of Readers out there, all professing to give you accurate answers.  How do you know they are ‘good’?  Or do they try to manipulate  your life?  Are  you depend on a Reader?

Entertainment, curiosity or a need to get another opinion on a complicated life issue are a few of the many reasons for consulting  Readers.

Readers often specialize in a particular field, and some are also trained as therapists or counselors with a Master of Divinity degree or a diploma in clinical social work.

  1. Think about your reasons for using a Reader. Different issues require different types of Readers.
  2. Decide what specialty you’d like your Reader to have. Specialties include palm or tarot card reading, angel readings, crossing over, intuitive readings, numerology, astrology and tea leaves.  There is a wide field here – search until you find one that resonates with you
  3. You should feel comfortable with the person you are asking to read for you.
  4. Ask friends or family for recommendations. Often the best Readers don’t advertise; instead, they obtain clients by word-of-mouth.
  5. Visit the Holistic Fayre in Bothasig, walk round and see which Reader you would resonate with.  Chat or have a short session with him/her.  If you resonate well, then make a proper booking at his/her house.

When interviewing a Reader, listen to your gut feelings. Avoid working with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable or vulnerable or tells you anything that frightens you.

Similarly, avoid a Reader who makes outrageous claims that raise skepticism.

A good Reader is a professional with whom you should feel comfortable and safe.

Tips and Warning

  • If you leave a Reader feeling scared, frightened or depressed, never go back to this person and erase from your memory all that you were told by them!
  • If a Reader insists that they know better than you what is right for you, never go back!
  • If a Reader wants to sell you candles or prayers to improve your lot in life, to take away an evil curse, to bring you money or to find the perfect mate, never go back.
  • If a Reader insists that you should come back on a regular basis so that they can help you through a difficult time, be very careful.
  • If you feel the Reader doesn’t genuinely care about you, never go back!
  • Avoid any Reader who asks for money in exchange for removing a curse or a threat to your life or that of a loved one. This is a common scam used by unscrupulous con artists to intimidate people and gain wealth.
  • Finally, if you leave a reading without feeling empowered or without having gained a new perspective on your life and your choices, you might want to shop for a new Reader.

Most reputable Readers charge a flat rate per session or on an hourly basis

If you find yourself consulting a Reader more often than you’d like, consider if you’re addicted to the excitement and attention involved in a reading. Also consider if you’re avoiding something in your life. Readers are not a quick fix: What may be needed is a deeper exploration of the issues involved that only a trained therapist or counselor can provide.

How the Angels Guided me

We all sometimes procrastinate and we all at some stage of our lives receive urgent bills that require your immediate attention.

Well, that is where I found myself in April 2006.  Remember, I was guided  by the Angels to start an Holistic Fayre in the Northern Suburbs, but so far I had done nothing.

Then I received an account that required my attention, and I knew I had to do something urgently.

I decided that the quickest way was to sell some of my crystal jewellery to office staff.  So, I packed my car with stock with the intention of going to Montague Garden, but the Angels had other plans.

As my petrol gauge started flashing, I noticed I was on the back road to Durbanville.  Why did I not go to Montague Gardens or Kilarney?  I wondered!  Still no idea as to why I was being lead to an area I did not know at all.

Upon arriving in Durbanville, I remembered someone once said to me:  “If you looking for a venue for the market, ask Estate Agents.”  Would you believe it – right there in front of me was an Estate Agent Office.

Directed to various schools in the area, I did my rounds.  Somehow the venues did not seem correct – parking, hall etc.  Nothing felt right.

Lastly, I walked into the Community Hall through the side door  (which is always locked, but on this occasion it was open).

As I walked in, I just knew, this is it!  This is the venue.  Wow!  I was thrilled!

I quickly went to see the municipality, and booked September, October and November months.  December was not available, neither were dates before.

I came home quite proud of myself, and started putting things into action.
As excited as I was, there were a few friends that questioned my dreams and inspiration.  They suggested all sorts of things about my proposed new scheme, and I was starting to doubt myself.

In May month I connected once again with my Angels, and asked them for help and a sign.  I asked that the sign be a date for July month.  If I could get a date for July, I knew I would be blessed and that I was guided and not my imagination.

Next morning, bright and early, saw me at the Municipality once again.  I confirmed all the dates and asked if it were possible if they had a date available for July month.

Would you believe it – they had just had a cancellation.  This confirmation was more than I needed at the time.  No, there was no date available for August month, remember, I did not ask for one.  Now I knew that the Fayre would be blessed.

On a beautiful warm winter’s day in July month we opened our doors. I was more than nervous and insecure. I am human!  I knew the Angels were with us and we were blessed.

By the time we got to October month, again, friends were telling me what to do and not do.  Some even advised to close down the Fayre.  So once again, I approached the Angels.  And asked them, if I am the right person to do this
Fayre, that if I must continue to give me a date for December.

So bright and early in October 2006, I walk into the municipality office in Durbanville.  I confirm all the dates for 2007 and then the lady asks me:  “I see you do not have a date for December, would you like one?”  I reply:  “if one is available.  Why not?”

She paged through the diary, and says “How about 9 December, would that suit you?”

The hairs on my back stood on end.  Why do I doubt the Angels?  Why do I question their guidance?  Who am I to question them?

Not only did they give me a date in December! They gave me my birthday!  The date for the December Fayre was my birthday.

Since then, I never looked back, nor doubted the Angel’s guidance and advice.  I follow their advice always.
This month we celebrate our 5th Birthday Bash.  Guided by Angel Wings we are growing stronger and strong.

Welcome! It’s our Birthday Bash.

History of About Holistic

How time flies!

It feels like just yesterday when we opened our doors for the first time in the Northern Suburbs.

In February 2006, I was guided to start the Holistic Fayre in the Northern Suburbs.  This made me very nervous indeed, but guided by the Angels, I found the perfect venue.  July 2006 saw us in Durbanville.  I knew this venue was only temporary to help me build confidence and find the right Exhibitors.

February 2008, we moved to our current premises in Bothasig. The Bothasig hall always called me, and I felt right at home and comfortable.  The hall is spacious, has a wonderful courtyard, large foyer, enormous stage with a minor hall and extensive main hall.  The sky- light brought in the much required sun light.  The hall proved to be spacious and quickly filled up with our energy.

Alas, 6 months later, due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to move temporarily   to Edgemead Hall, where we celebrated our 3rd birthday. But we were back in time for Christmas in our favourite hall in Bothasig.

Our 4th Birthday was celebrated with World Cup Soccer, and today, we are proud to announce our 5th Birthday Celebrations.

We have now become a regular feature in the Northern Suburbs. Our website is filled to the brim with news and events happening in the area, plus interesting reads, information, and inspirational stories to inspire you.

I have learnt so much from you, our Visitors – our website is very popular indeed, our weekly gazette well read.  Caring and devoted Exhibitors, interesting talks and workshops plus now also our new blog.

I am proud to say, that our mailing list has grown over the years to more than I expected:  all email addresses obtained directly from people who are interested.  Our website is receiving over 600 visits per day.  Somehow I feel the Angels are smiling upon us all, there is even one over your shoulder now, smiling as you read.

Welcome! It’s Our Birthday Bash
