Recently a trio of Carnelian crystals came forward with a very special message for our crystal community which I delivered through the Song of Stones newsletter. They say …
Dearest beautiful soul,
Your life matters.
Every nanosecond that you are in this life you’ve been chosen for, matters.
We want more for you than just to hear these words. We want you to feel the truth of this.
Hold us in your hands – or in your heart if we are not physically present with you – and let us show you how much you matter.
Let us show you how beautiful you are to the Universe.
The message of these stone beings was so profoundly powerful that I was brought to tears. And as if the gift these crystals shared with us through that message was not enough, they had even more to offer. They volunteered to co-create a Star Song for me and then to co-create the monthly Star Song for our community. I have been basking in the beauty of the energetic emanations of this Star Song now for some time. I want to share with you what I received from it because I think that their message is more than just personal for me … I think it is a universal one.
An old pattern came up to be shifted – one that I have travelled with throughout this lifetime and likely through other existences. I have always been challenged by transition … by moving from one place to another … from one state of being to another … from one task to another … even from the spot where I am sitting to another position. Really it’s about anything that has to do with change and I’m sure I’m not alone in that challenge. The Universe has reflected this pattern to me in many ways and through the years as I’ve begun to awaken my spirit (which is the greatest transition one can undergo in a lifetime) I have become more and more aware of it. As my awareness grows, the transitions become easier. But the journey continues. The transition I’ve been challenged by most is the one from night to day and from sleeping to waking – in the literal sense. Of course being asleep and awakening are THE metaphors of spiritual growth. The connection is not lost on me.
While the “you matter” Star Song was in presence, waking up in the morning was much easier for me. With each passing morning I have been feeling lighter and readier to leave my cozy cocoon and move into the day. I was not taking this great gift for granted but I must admit that I was wondering what the connection was between the message that my life matters … and this dawning ease in waking up? What does one have to do with the other? They seem to be very separate topics. This is the brilliance of the Universe … showing us connections where we would never have noticed them. As the magical vibrations of this Star Song continued to be transmitted to me I stayed patient knowing that the answer would come. The Universe did not disappoint. Understanding would rise up through the sleepy haze and become crystal clear to me.
This sunset coloured Star Song allowed an old cycle to float up to the surface in the most gentle way that an old pattern could be revealed and released. It helped me to remember an old story that crushed my spirit and broke my heart – without needing to repeat the pain or re-break my heart. I was taken back to a time many years ago when I shared some joyous life changing news with someone close to me and how my celebration brought out anger and disappointment in them. I was very deeply affected by that reaction. I didn’t realize the depth of this wound until just now. That trauma got embedded into my heart and the fallout rippled through time into many areas of my life. Writing this now I realize that moment all those years ago was one of the biggest transitions of my entire life. It may actually have been the moment that marked the greatest turning point in my entire life. And now I understand why I was taken back to that time and shown this specific event. This Star Song was about easing the shift through transition and this memory was about the grandest change I’d ever experienced.
Clarity had begun to seep in. However, at this point I was still not sure about how sharing my news with someone who did not share my joy was in any way related to how “my life matters” … how I matter.
So I became still and listened to the answer …
Your life must matter to you.
Your joy is yours.
Others may be able to celebrate with you and some may be more sincere about their happiness for you than others. BUT it shouldn’t matter – or it doesn’t need to matter – whether they share in your joy because it is your joy.
The universe doesn’t just give you permission to feel joy, it insists on it because that is the only way for your soul to break through your skin and shine out into the world. AND THAT is what you came into your existence for …
TO SHINE YOUR PARTICULAR FREQUENCY OF LIGHT INTO and ONTO OTHERS and the universe.
The only way to do that is to feel your joy openly and the only way to feel your joy openly is to let your soul shine through and the only way your soul can leak out through your body is through your joy and the only way you can feel your joy is to let your soul shine through.
You see the issue …
It’s a little like jumping into double skipping ropes that are moving like pepper – once you’re in you can feel into the flow. But jumpin in without breaking the rhythm requires timing, trust and daring.
When you play with friends they will slow down the rhythm of the ropes to let you jump in more easily and slowly increase the speed of the rhythm riving you a chance to keep up. There are ways this can be done in life – the Star Songs are one way – connecting with crystals are another. They can play with time and space and slow down the rhythm of the world so you can jump into flow. You can do this too. It is a natural magical ability. But until you figure out how to do it consciously and purposefully, the crystals and Star Songs can help. Then when you’re ready they will show you how to do it yourself.
I hope that I was able to articulate the magic that happened here through this Star Song. I was taken through a journey and I was shown that by giving so much weight to what someone else thought about my experience, I was in a sense saying that what they feel and think matters more than how I feel. My joy was diminished because I gave more importance to the reaction of another person over what I was feeling myself. I was in essence telling the Universe that I don’t matter. The Universe has been telling me the whole time that this was not truth – that I do matter. This Star Song helped me to hear that message. I hope that I have somehow given you a glimpse as to how such gentle emanations hold such powerful energy. Each time I experience a Star Song is new and different. Each time my heart opens just a little bit more and allows my true essence to expand and shine forth a little brighter.
