When Inspiration Strikes

February 21, 2017

We are nearing a new moon (Sunday) and wow, the energy of inspiration is not only pouring in, but it is also beginning to become more and more focused! All of the ideas that came in with the full moon may be beginning to either come together and fall away as the most important idea emerges. This may be a specific goal or intention that begins to feel incredibly important to you for this year.

Over the weekend I really noticed this. Ideas for new jewelry collections began flooding in . . . in dream time, in waking time, while trimming trees in our gardens. I also know that when my inspiration begins to feel more focused there is a part of me that wants to rush into action like the honey-bees that emerged over the weekend looking for food (It's been unusually warm in Wisconsin right now and I share more about the bees in this week's podcast. Listen below). But it is still technically winter and it is still time to really receive what is coming in and allow it to become more and more clear before stepping into action in the spring season. 

But, with the energy flowing there are ways that we can open our creative channels and allow that current to guide us and create more focus and clarity around our intention or goal for the year. 

Listen in to discover three great practices for opening your creative channels . . .

Crystal Altar of the Week (1) - Inspiration

February 21, 2017

One of my sacred practices is to create weekly altars with my jewels . . . to shake up the combinations based on intuitive guidance, what's unfolding in the collective, and so much more. This week I am beginning a new series on this podcast to include a message, wisdom, and insights from my weekly crystal altars. If you would like to see the image of my altar, you can find that on my blog. Visit http://loriaandrus.com/blog

In this week's episode discover three sacred practices to support you during this time, as well as three powerful jewel allies.

Let’s Get Rooted + 4 Jewels for Strong Roots

February 2, 2017

Let's get rooted!

This topic has been in my heart for the past couple weeks . . . especially as we, in the US, inaugurated a new president. Lots of changes. Lots of uproar. And Lots of uprooting of what many of us perceived to be the very foundation of our lives and of our country.

In many ways this feels like a point of complete turning over.

Right now many of us are experiencing some level of the chaos that ensues such drastic and unexpected changes. We are experiencing emotions that may feel unfamiliar. We are struggling to understand and at the same time finding ourselves not only called into a whole new level of action, but also taking action that may have been previously uncharacteristic. Action inspired by the deepest parts of ourself. Some part of self has awakened in this process and we are saying “I will not go back to sleep. I will no longer remain silent.” Yet at the same time we wonder ‘how?’.

During this time I have been finding myself called to work with my roots and my favorite root chakra jewels.

The messages that seem to be just pouring forward are that now is a time to rise. Now is a time to let go of any fear, resistance, and untruth that previously interfered with our willingness to stand in what we know to be true and what we believe at the deepest levels of our soul. 

Listen in and discover how you too can work with these beautiful allies to root deeper into your knowing of you and the unique ways you are here to contribute to the world at this time.
