The Dreaming Songlines

I had a very vivid dream last night where I was setting out on travels to the far north of Australia with an Aboriginal lass. For some reason, she’d committed a crime, had been fined $7000 and ordered to go to the far north to work.

As she was testing the tyres of our 4-wheel-drive before we drove off, I had the sudden insight that she was being sent to the north as part of a new path for her, one where she was to embrace the songlines she’d come into this incarnation to embody. It was a challenge but part of her path on Earth.

At the same time, I was carrying quite a few powerful crystals and, as I walked around the vehicle, I kept finding more crystals including a beautiful pendant. All these I gathered in the bag I was holding.

I’m still working on understanding this dream but it was so clear and strong, I know it has resonance for me, just gotta be patient in working it out!

 

Earth Healing – Sanctuary Mandala

I keep my clear quartz crystals on the round table on the small verandah beside my workroom.  I don’t have space for these crystals indoors, and it’s good for them to be in the fresh air while knowing the sunlight energises them and they can’t fade.

I re-arranged them recently and felt drawn to add in the various stones and pebbles I’ve collected over the years. They have just as much energy as clear quartz crystals, albeit it in slightly different form.

I decided this mandala was for earth healing – specifically here in North Cyprus. There’s a history of conflict in this island due to its strategic position in the eastern Mediterranean, and much blood has been shed on the soil of Cyprus, as recently as 1974.

So I trust in some way this formation of clear quartz crystals and stones seeps into the soil of Cyprus and works a healing of the many conflicts that have occurred on this island over many, many centuries.

 

Crystal Crazies (Continued)

I may have been absent for a while but it didn’t stop my passion for crystals. So here are some new additions to my crystal collection.

Necklaces first: Amethyst, Citrine and Rose Quartz. My friend, Dawn, who also lives in North Cyprus, regularly visits Turkey and comes back with lovely crystal jewellery. The Rose Quartz helps me take care of myself; the Amethyst nurtures me spiritually and helps me relax; the citrine helps me with access to abundance and creativity.

I also bought some crystals to add to my collection:

Angel Aura/Amphibole Quartz – reverse side
Top side of Angel Aura/Amphibole Quartz – I love these quartz creations, have quite a few of these stones and I reckon they enable me to access the spiritual side of my nature. I have a lot of air signs so am very logical, but also have a strong spiritual connection through Neptune in the First House of my natal chart.
Mahagony Obsidian – a grounding stone which also brings all the chakra/energy centres into alignment.
Melody Stone – named after the crystal writer and expert, Melody, who started publicising crystal healing in the 1960s. It contains amethyst; smoky quartz; lepidocrosite, goethite, rutile and cacoxenite. This is a clearing stone – I once had a tumbled stone of this mix, slept with it under my pillow, had violent migraines for a couple of days which gradually died down, and I realised the stone had helped me release a lot of tension and stress from our move from Australia to the UK.

 

Joolz 3: My jewellery boards

When I arrived in North Cyprus from Australia in 2012, I had a hell of a time sorting out my jewellery once our luggage arrived (six months after being shipped from Australia, held up in Istanbul and only released after a bribe!).  So I finally decided to get some cork boards and hang my jewellery on them.  However, my collection has increased exponentially since I came across the crystal goodies my friend Dawn brings over from Istanbul, and this week I sorted them out into three boards: one for non-crystal jewellery, one for crystal jewellery and a third for earrings. Of course now my order of bling from Rose Wholesale has arrived I’ll have to do a bit of re-arranging. My husband shook his head when I was doing all this re-organising but I told him sweetly, don’t get between a Libran and her jewellery!

Crystal Crazies

I thought I’d share a couple of new crystals I came across recently (never let construction shenanigans from the development next door which has been plaguing us divert you from the crystal crazies). The first is a magical quartz from the Messina area in South Africa. The original Messina mine has been exhausted – this used to be a wonderful source of quartz with ajoite and bright blue papagoite.

The quartz which landed in my lap recently is from another mine and has a combination of red piedmontite and yellow-green epidote over one surface. It has a main termination with a phantom inclusion and also a small face with multiple terminations.

Along with this my supplier friend included a freebie – a small crystal wand with brookite on the surface and rutile inclusion, this is from Pakistan. On this question of size, I’m not bothered how big or small a crystal is – it only matters to me how I interact with the energy and this small quartz wand is awesome, resonates very intensely with my own energy to remind me that small is just as powerful as big. So go beyond surface appearances and look into a crystal to see how it works with you.

Below are photos of another Messina quartz I purchased recently – it’s very unusual in that the main face has multiple terminations and at the other end is a small cross quartz also with multiple terminations.

Elemental Pendant

We have building works going on right beside us creating enormous amounts of dust and noise, so I decided to bring inside the crystals and stones I had on a table on the verandah beside my office. I have had a huge piece of petrified wood for years, since I lived in Boonah, south-east Queensland. It’s from Mt French, the big mountain close to Boonah, and a friend gave it to me. This time, as I picked it up, a piece broke off much to my suprise. However, I held it and felt it was calling to be made into a pendant, a grounding piece of the earth element with links to earth elementals.

So I painted it with gold and rainbow glitter nail polish, something I wouldn’t normally do as I like my stones au naturel, but these seemed to inspire a connection with the earth elememtals. Then I added a gold wrap, an aquamarine stone to honour water elementals, and clear and purple Swarovski-type flatbacks to represent the spiritual connections of this pendant.

This piece has a very powerful, ground energy with deep links within Mother Earth.  She also keeps me connected with Australia where I lived for over 40 years.

New Jewellery Creations

Been fiddling with some jewellery. My daughter in Rosehearty, N-E Scotland, gave me the dreamcatcher earrings in 1994 when we had a holiday in the UK. I bought the feather earrings a while back from Dawn Buyukertas who sells a wide range of crystal and other jewellery here in North Cyprus. But the feathers were too light to hang properly, so I added them to the dreamcatcher earrings along with some other beads.

The quartz pendant I created from a freebie small clear quartz point sent to me with my last crystal order. It’s small but it jumped in my hand when I held it, so I’ve added a silver wire holder and three Swarovski-type crystals for the crown, throat and heart chakras. My experience has been that you don’t need a large crystal for energy, any size crystal is fine as long as you’re drawn to it and it resonates for you.
