You can't miss it. If you are out in the world and have to interface with any shopping establishment at all and if you live anywhere in America you will be bombarded with the HOLIDAYS. The HOLIDAYS trigger all kinds of responses, no getting around that. I have talked with grief-stricken people who are looking at the upcoming holidays without their passed-on loved one, with people who, when confronted with a visit home display a range of coping mechanisms from complete mental and emotional paralysis (I've done this) to frantic, over-the-top consumerism (I've done this) to last-minute trip cancellations (I've done it) to stocking up on every British Masterpiece Theatre dvd set the library would allow (I've done that too). There are those facing deep sadness, bottomless grief, family pressures, and of course there are those who love the holidays, can't get enough of them, and relish time to visit with family. The range of feelings run the full gamut of the emotional spectrum - and you might experience the entire range during these times leading to the Ascension opening of the Winter Solstice and the Christian celebration that follows on its tail virtually unavoidable in the U.S.
Personally I enjoy the seasonal aspect of late November and December. The holidays for me are strictly a decorative opportunity. The evergreen trees stand out in all their splendor now that the deciduous ones are mostly bare-branched. You can see all kinds of birds'
nests tucked into tree crevices as the fallen leaves reveal their hiding places. Black berries of privet bushes, vibrant red rose hips, and chartreuse crabapples adorn the late autumn trees and ground. Everything is stripped bare and exposed. Ah- just like how you could be feeling in these super sensitive times of the Ascension- stripped bare and exposed.
Not to worry! MANY are feeling this way these days. John Corsa, multi-disciplined energy healer and crystologist, and I have come up with a CRYSTAL COCKTAIL to de-stress you and relieve the anxiety that can be stimulated in the coming month. The planetary influences are not going to let up any time soon so the more effective you are at managing any stress and anxiety that comes up - the better!
The CRYSTAL COCKTAIL we have concocted will help to GROUND you while activating UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for yourself and for others.
GROUNDING is the #1 thing you can do for yourself to keep anxiety to a minimum (mine is 99.9% gone now). GROUNDING is REALLY EASY to do. If you are in a heightened stress situation you can ground yourself every 5 minutes if you need to. It is also imperative to keep your psychic boundaries firmly in tact.

Light of the Universe. With LOVE for all and harm to no one."

We have chosen these specific crystals for this sacred, healing brew as these crystals offer up their unique magic to your healing process.
ROSE QUARTZ, in her perfect pinkness, is the most powerful crystal for softening and opening the heart. Rose Quartz supports emotional healing and the resolution of emotional programming. Can't we all use more of this?
HEMATITE grounds and heals by bringing enriched blood flow to all necessary parts, physically and metaphorically. Hematite aids in bringing higher aspirations and higher purpose into concrete reality. Hematite helps to integrate the wide range of your experiences into a cohesive, working whole. GROUNDING is the key to keeping your feet firmly on the ground, connecting to the all-healing energy of Mother EARTH - a MUST in these potent times of transition and change, not to mention the HOLIDAYS.
CARNELIAN bestows courage, bringing life force energy into the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd chakras. Carnelian helps you to overcome your fear of failure, which can be especially debilitating if you are facing fears in the emotional realm. And who wouldn't face fears there? The emotional realm can be downright frightening, especially for more airy types.
Take good care during these powerful times.
Enjoy your crystal cocktails!
