If you are seeking, seek us with joy
For we live in the kingdom of joy.
Do not give your heart to anything else
But to the love of those who are clear joy,
Do not stray into the neighborhood of despair.
For there are hopes: they are real, they exist —
Do not go in the direction of darkness —
I tell you: suns exist.
– Jalal-ud-Din Rumi

Card from the Simple Tarot
From Angie Green:
The Star tarot card is sometimes called “the fairy godmother” card, because it arrives to let you know everything is going to work out fine. This is very good news, especially after the upheaval of The Tower, which proceeds it.
Have faith and believe that things are going to be okay, or even better than okay. They always have been and they always will be.
Sometimes, The Star is about being in the spotlight. If you’ve ever wanted to see your name in lights, it’s time to take center stage. Be authentically you and let your true light shine through.
Would you like to be famous for something? For what? Are you willing to pay the price?

And my newest, “Tarot and Self Care #2” from Jill Roberts Upper East Side Medium on Anchor: https://anchor.fm/JillNYC/episodes/Tarot-and-Self-Care-2-e2lu5o
As promised in Episode 4, here are the abbreviated meanings to the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana, the Court Cards with their accompanying Elements!
Minor Arcana/Court Cards with Elements
Great deck for Reversals (explained in Part 2 of Tarot and Self Care, Episode 6)
Best starter decks! The Rider-Waite Deck has been around for a long time and has universal themes (you can pick up a deck on Amazon) and The Simple Tarot by Angie Green (TheSimpleTarot.com) is based on the Rider Waite but with modern illustrations and best of all, KEYWORDS right on the cards to make learning easy and fun!
Here I took the quite ominous 8 of cups by Rider Waite and compared it to Angie’s Simple Tarot and you can see the difference even though they’re based on the same themes. This is why I highly recommend getting both decks.
In R.W. (I have to abbreviate or you’ll be sick of reading the names of the decks just as much as I am writing them 😉) you see a nonplussed looking moon, mountains surrounded by water, a man with his back to us walking away from the cups using a stick to aid his uphill path, and he seems to be on a piece of land surrounded by the water as well. If I hadn’t put the cards side by side, what do you think this card is trying to convey? (Please let me know what you think in the comments! I love starting an interesting conversation, especially about Tarot! 🗣)
Now take as look at the S.T. Pretty clear right? I don’t know if I wouldn’t have come up with “Intuition” by the R.W. deck if I was just starting out. Sure there’s a moon but it’s night time. I get the gist of an uphill battle and starting out on a new path, but not from the swamp, looking like small hills that are depicted. In the S.T., Angie has a much more consice interpretation. The moon has the keyword of “Intuition” along with the Mountain has ” seeking a new path” , We see the 8 cups lined up like a pyramid unlike them in just 2 rows in the R.W. The key words “A Turning Point and Voluntary Withdrawal” may not be conveyed as consicely for some beginners.
If you want to learn about the Tarot, learning how to use your intuition along with it, and a comparison of popular decks like the one I did above, leave me a comment below!
Hope you’re having an amazing day!

Bright Light and Blessings,
I just started working with Atacamite and it’s a fantastic stone to use to expand your consciousness and clair abilities. I have a large piece and a smaller one (pictured above) that I use while quieting my mind, meditating, and channeling. To use this stone to open up your third eye/pineal gland, make sure you get a small piece that you can place directly on your third eye.
Here’s what I found on the meanings, properties, and powers of Atacamite…
Embrace the extrodinary that is you- Jill 💎💜
Atacamite is a result of the oxidation of copper ores in saline or arid conditions.
It’s also a volcanic product in Vesuvian lavas.
Atacamite is a copper chloride hydroxide mineral that is also polymorphous with two other minerals, Botallackite and Paratacamite.
Atacamite can exhibit different shades of green, although it’s usually a rich dark green color.
It can also be transparent to translucent with a hardness rating of 3, making it quite a soft gemstone compared to others.
This mineral was first discovered in the Atacama Region in Chile in 1801. Atacamite was added to the list of mineral species by D. de Gallizen in the same year.
Atacamite is also known as Remolinite, Alacamite, or Peruvian Green Sand (when in powdered form).
It’s quite a rare mineral which can only be found in the Atacama Desert in Chile. But there are also notable occurrences of Atacamite in West Africa and South Australia.
Atacamite is a great stone that can open the third eye chakra and allow you to experience powerful psychic visions.
Its energies are also very beneficial in meditation, giving you sharper focus and a stronger connection with your subconscious.
It will act as a stimulant for the pineal gland and activate your third eye, especially when you combine it with Eilat Stone.
It will also help in the development of your psychic abilities and in promoting efficient communication with your higher self.
Atacamite will increase the intensity of your clairvoyance and clairaudience.
It will also work to protect you from negative energies and harmful psychic attacks.
Atacamite can be used with any chakra, although it will be very beneficial to use it with the third eye chakra.
It will boost your confidence and increase your motivation.
This stone will also infuse you with enthusiasm in everything you do, both in the personal and professional fronts.
It will aid in communication and allow you to express yourself clearly and effectively. It’s also a stone that will develop your independence.
Atacamite will help you become more motivated by enhancing your faith and confidence in yourself.
It will remove all the energy blocks that are preventing you from being productive and imaginative.
It’s a very useful stone to have with you when you’re journeying out of your body, especially to higher spiritual spheres.
It will give you psychic protectionand keep you safe against negative energies.
It also has the ability to assist earthbound spirits to go where they’re supposed to go and move forward.
It is believed that the Atacamite is a stone that can aid in physical healing.
Atacamite is known to boost the immune system and the thymus gland.
The healing energies of Atacamite also reach the reproductive organs and help in eliminating problems related to this area.
It can be used to treat the genitals and is known to improve the body’s resistance to venereal disease and herpes.
It can also benefit the kidneys by getting rid of the toxins. When placed on the throat, it is said to help treat hypothyroidism.
With its calming green colors, Atacamite can also be beneficial in overcoming stress and soothing frayed nerves in a subtle and soft level.
The energies of Atacamite will help in developing your creativity and strengthening your imagination.
If you truly want to get ahead and stand out from your competitors in business, you need to have creative and imaginative ideas.
Atacamite will also remove any blockage that you have in your life that’s preventing you from reaching your financial goals!
Atacamite will strengthen the love you have in your relationship.
If you are single, you will feel a big difference in how you regard love and relationships as well.
If in the past love has taken a backseat in your life, with the guidance of Atacamite, you will be able to bring it to the fore and make it your priority.
You will make time for love, and you will welcome love!

Atacamite makes for some lovely jewelry pieces. You can choose to wear it close to your body for both its aesthetic beauty and incredible healing properties.
It’s best and beautifully designed when made into pendants and necklaces.
When using Atacamite for meditation, it would be very beneficial to use the stone moderately until you get used to its energies, especially if it’s your first-time to work with stones and crystals.
Atacamite is a great stone to use in your daily crystal meditations because it will help you use its powerful healing properties and beneficial nature.
Atacamite will bring you to higher spiritual realms, so you can also expect to experience a little ungrounding.
If you ever find yourself feeling spacey or dizzy, just take out your Atacamite stone and hold it in your hands to use its grounding energies. You will feel like your old self again in no time.
You will find that when you pick it up and hold it in your hands, you will also be activating or enhancing your clairaudient or psychic hearing abilities.
This may happen automatically for others, particularly those who have clairaudience as their main psychic gift.
It will work in your third eye chakra and in your pineal gland. It will intensify your link to your higher self, as well as to your spirit guides because your psychic abilities will be completely open.
When you use Atacamite for short periods each day, you will be able to adapt to its energies more easily. You will also experience fewer side effects.
If you haven’t opened your third eye yet, Atacamite will forcefully open it so that you will find it easier to communicate with your spirit guides.
It’s a must-have stone for anyone who wants to develop or enhance their clairvoyant gifts because it will bring you powerful images, even if clairvoyance is not your main psychic gift!
Atacamite will help you see more clearly and vividly through the help of your psychic visions, so it’s a good stone to enhance your experiences with this ability.
It’s a stone that’s widely used and works on many different areas at the same time.
Atacamite is the stone that you never thought you needed. It will help you move forward and work on your overall growth and development.
Among the best stones to combine Atacamite with include Black Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, and Fire Agate because these are also highly protective stones.
Even though Atacamite has a powerful grounding vibration, it’s best to use it with other grounding stones, especially if you’re working with it for spiritual development.
The vibrations of Atacamite and other copper-based stones and crystals will also be amplified when you combine them.
This includes Cuprite, Chrysocolla, Gem Silica, Shattuckite, Malachite, King Solomon stone, Eilat Stone, Covellite, Turquoise, Green Dioptase, and Ajoite.
Atacamite works with the heart chakra. It opens the heart chakra and helps invite more unconditional love into your life.

Since I’m engaged in a year long Shamanic journey with an anthropologist, and am obsessed with crystals, I was so happy to find this article by Judy Hall.
Hope you find it as enjoyable as I do!
Midwinter sunrise, Stonehenge
Listen, there’s a hell of a good universe next door, let’s go.
Shamans have utilised crystals to access other realms of consciousness for tens of thousands of years. I find crystals make shamanic journeying so much smoother. They instantly transport you where you need to go. The subtle vibrations generated by crystals facilitate changing your level of awareness with ease. They also provide a ‘shamanic anchor’, a grounding cord that holds you safely while you journey to other realms – and facilitates your return. Some of my favourites are listed below.
A vehicle between the worlds Shaman Quartz, c. Jeni Campbell, http://www.angeladditions.co.uk
You have only to imagine yourself standing with me at sunrise in Stonehenge with drums beating and chants rolling around the sarcen stones activating the immense forcefield created by the central Bluestones to recognise the truly awesome power of stone. I don’t use that word awesome lightly. In fact I usually avoid it. But when talking about the ability of crystals to amplify your connection with other realities and to move your consciousness outside time, no other word will do. Whether we’re looking at beautiful, luminous Quartz crystals or seemingly dull lumps of rock, we are talking power-full. Each crystal (a word I use for all stones not just the shiny ones) has its own unique, and very specific, beneficial frequency.
Introducing this frequency into your energy field brings about healing on many levels, reintegrating the soul, rebalancing the subtle etheric body and from there the physical not only of the human body but also of the planet itself. But it can also facilitate your journeys to other worlds.
The first religion
Shamanism is said to have been the first spiritual practice of humankind. It not only worked on behalf of individuals but held communities together. As grave goods show, crystals supported that practice right back into pre-history. Archaeologists in northern Israel have discovered the world’s oldest known shaman grave. The 12,000-year-old interment holds an elderly female of the mysterious Natufian culture together with her shamanic tools: animal parts, a human foot and the fragment of a basalt scrying bowl. Shamans operate outside ordinary reality. They, as with crystal workers, recognise that subtle energies influence the physical world, not the other way round.
Shamanic crystal finds: the Upton Lovell Shaman Barrow
The Upton Lovell Stone, compare this to Nubian Temple Quartz
I love it when the archaeological and academic worlds support my reality. My local Wiltshire Museum has an outwardly ordinary but actually rather extraordinary circular Milk (Snow) Quartz stone from the Upton Lovell Barrow. It was found on the chest of the man buried in a ‘Shaman’s grave.’ Traditionally Milk Quartz gives you mental clarity, assists in controlling emotion and enhances trance states. The museum description says ‘The stone may be a working tool or a part of his religious paraphernalia – perhaps the stone that helped him see his visions.’ The fact that this stone was placed over his heart suggests that it was rather special to him. It is very similar to the extraordinarily powerful ‘Nubian Temple stones’ found in Upper Egypt (see www.angeladditions.co.uk and www.judyhall.co.uk).
Nubian temple Quartz Photo copyright Jeni Campbell
The grave is that of an early British shaman who also worked as a goldsmith – the alchemical wonderworkers of the ancient world. There were also four cups made from split flint nodules in the grave. His costume was rather extraordinary too: he was ‘buried in a cloak to the edge of which 36 bone points had been sewn. A further group of bone points found on his chest were possibly from a necklace. Four pierced boar’s tusks found by his knees may have decorated a pouch. Among his grave goods were four axeheads, including a prestigious axe made of black dolerite. At his feet was a collection of stones, which were probably a set of metalworker’s hammers and grinding stones.’ (Also rather special, take a look at http://www.wiltshiremuseum.org.uk/galleries)
Connecting with the shaman’s world
Bumble Bee Jasper connects you to bee power allies
Photo copyright Jeni Campbell/angeladditions.co.uk
To shamans everything in the physical universe is alive and imbued with spirit or life force, particularly crystals. Shamans, intermediaries between the physical and spiritual levels of being, traditionally used crystals for soul retrieval, empowerment, divination and journeying between the worlds to seek insights and solutions. All facilitated by crystals. Certain crystals even have specific allies, power animals or spirit beings, connected to them to assist you in your quest. But this is not the only use for potent crystal beings. Crystals cleanse the environment and create safe, sacred space – and bring healing to the environment.

Magical Blue Flint, the portal and grounding stone c. Judy Hall
According to traditional shamanic cosmology there are three planes of consciousness, the Lower, Middle and Upper Worlds. To this, from my crystal shamanic experience, I would add a fourth, the Celestial (or stellar) which could be viewed as an extension of the Upper World. These worlds may be looked on as inner planes, part of the archetypal collective unconscious or the human psyche. Or, as shamanic crystals teach, as different levels of the multi-dimensional reality that surrounds and interpenetrates us.
The Lower World is so called because it has a denser vibration in contrast to the much lighter ‘higher’ vibration of the Upper World. The shaman moves through these worlds in a light form of trance or heightened awareness. This is where crystals are so helpful. Their frequency meshes with the shaman and acts as a vehicle to transport consciousness to the various planes. Many, such as Preseli Bluestone, act instantly. The dense, earthy stones such as Flint or Celestobarite are particularly useful for traversing the Lower World and, indeed, Neolithic peoples interred Flint into their graves to act as a portal to carry the soul between the worlds. High vibration crystals, such as Brandenberg or Moldavite, take you to the Upper World and on to the Celestial. Moldavite actually arrived on this planet from ‘above’, that is from outer space, and it together with Libyan Gold Tecktite knows the way home.
Bringing your vibrations into harmony
Elestial Smoky Quartz, excellent for grounding and
Journeying c. Michael Illas Earth Blessings
Shamanic crystals work when your own vibrations are in harmony with the stone. If a crystal does not appear to work for you, hold it and gently concentrate on your palm. You may feel a tingle and your body will shift slightly as it attunes to the crystal. If so, persevere, sitting for ten minutes a day until the crystal begins to work. If not, choose another crystal. A shamanic crystal may bring about a strong cathartic reaction or healing challenge. If this occurs, remove the crystal immediately and hold a Chlorite or Smoky Quartz point down towards your feet to facilitate the release of energy moving out of your body. Wait a day or two before using the high vibration crystal again.
Crystal journeying can be carried out lying or sitting down in a place where you will not be disturbed (turn off your phone!). It needs to be a safe, sacred space – four or five Black Tourmalines, Clear Quartz, Smoky Elestial Quartz or Selenite crystals set out around you that you have asked to protect you will ensure that the space is clear. You can use a drum or chanting CD to assist if you wish, especially one that has a specific ending to call you back. Some people like to sit or lie beneath a special blanket. Suitable journeying stones are shown below.
Choose your crystals, cleanse it and hold the crystal loosely in your hands and set your intention. Be very clear about why you are journeying. State your aim, whether it is for healing, insight, and so on. And set the intention that you will return with the answers fully available to your everyday conscious mind. (You may also like to set a return time, say in fifteen or twenty minutes.)
You can then either lie back and close your eyes while holding the crystal or place it on an appropriate chakra, or sit and gaze with half-closed, softly focused eyes into your crystal – this is particularly useful if you are using Shaman Quartz or a Quartz with inner planes and inclusions that take your eye deep into the crystal. Breathe gently, establishing a comfortable rhythm. If you are not using the crystal as an entrance to the other worlds, picture a venerable tree with a hole beneath its roots, or a ladder to the upper world, and ask your crystal to take you through that entrance directly to whichever world you wish to access.
Let the crystal transport you, don’t force it. Be aware of vibrations and feelings, sensations and insights that float into your mind. You may feel a whirling, rushing, ascending or descending motion or a deep still space. Ask your crystal and power allies to join you on this journey and bring you the answers or the healing you seek.
When it’s time to return, thank your helpers and ask the crystal to return you to your everyday world. Stand up and connect your feet to the floor and the earth beneath them. Have a good stretch and a little shake to ensure you are comfortable in your body. Then immediately write down your impressions and the answers you received. Consciously disconnect by putting the crystal aside.

It removes implants that operate multi- dimensionally, healing the etheric blueprint and reprogramming cellular memory so that the physical body raises its vibrations. It transports you back into lives where you were priest or priestess to access your spiritual wisdom.

Celestobarite is a shamanic oracle that shows you both sides of the coin, elucidating issues that are not clear, but leaving you to decide what to believe.
