Welcome to Judith's Crystal Cave Teachings, my virtual home.
Here is where I share my thoughts on spirituality, life, humor, Crystals, and various topics I hope people will find interesting. We are far more than we know. We all have magic within us, waiting to be tapped into. I want to support that awakening, that recognition of what we are: Eternal souls on a journey through space and time, here to evolve, learn, and grow. All that I've learned from the teachers in my life, the elders, the animals, the stones, the trees, the elements, the stars, and all that I am, is shared here, in this space. My training in Classical Chinese Medicine, ( and Taoism ), including the Stones, 5-Element theory, Essential Oils, and herbs, Astrology, and my insights as a Clairvoyant Empath are all shared here. With empathy, love, and my bizarre sense of humor, I am honored to share my perspectives on this Earth walk with you.
One of the great loves in my life has always been nature, especially what native people call "The Stone People". I have been working with, and teaching about Crystals and Minerals for most of my life. All of the indigenous cultures around the world describe the stones as the oldest living beings on the planet. The Taoists consider them to be the most powerful healing modality that there is. Part of the reason I started my website was to introduce these Master Healers to people unfamiliar with them, since most people have limited access to a Taoist Master or a native elder. Most books available today focus on either the metaphysical properties of stones, or the mineralogical make-up of the stones. I wanted to offer material that is ancient, from my decades of study, along with my direct experiences, dreams, and visions with the stones as an Alchemist, Clairvoyant Empath and Mystic.
My home is filled with a Shaman's tools, drums, rattles, feathers, art, Stones, Essential Oils, Herbs, Sage, Sweetgrass, tobacco for ceremony... All of these things combine together to create an energy that is healing for all who enter, and to challenge the trance-like state western culture creates in us, which inhibits and blocks us from achieving our true potential. This part of my website is designed to do that, to challenge that trance state, offering a different perspective on life that includes magic, and an opportunity to explore other dimensions and realities.
My actual home in real life is very unusual, a geodesic dome and subterranean home built into the side of a hill, with 35 tons of Calcite boulders that create the ceiling. A true Crystal Cave, unique and magical. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I wanted to have, and make available for my clients, an environment for people to experience the Earth as it truly is, from an Indigenous culture perspective: Powerful, nurturing, magical, and Sacred. I want to invite people to embark on a journey into the mystical, the supernatural, where all living things are connected as one heart. And I want to include laughter, because laughter brings us into the moment more quickly than anything except love. So expect some snippets of my life that hopefully will make you smile.
Come on a journey with me.
Some of you may know that I used to be a restaurant owner. My ex and I owned two high-end successful restaurants, one French, one Italian. Given the firestorm on social media about Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a restaurant, I’d like to dispel some erroneous preconceptions about owners asking customers to leave. This happens more frequently than one might think. None of those reasons are uncivil.
1. If a person is intoxicated, and becomes disruptive, they may be asked to leave. This is not uncivil or discriminatory. 2. A person is rude or abusive to the wait staff. They will be asked to leave. 3. A couple arguing loudly at their table, where one throws a drink in the face of their partner, will be asked to leave. 4. Unruly children running around the room unchecked by their parents, creating a disturbance for other diners, the parents will be asked to leave. 5. Diners approaching celebrities and bothering them will be asked to leave. 6. People making racist or bigoted comments to their servers or other customers will be asked to leave.
None of this is uncivil or unfair. The owner has a responsibility to provide a harmonious and safe environment for their staff and customers. Having a customer walk in who has a public history of persecution of LGBT people, and hides behind her religion or her profession, and feels entitled to shame others, should not expect those individuals to feel comfortable serving her. If my servers expressed discomfort with a customer, I would ask that customer to leave, which is what happened here. In my experience, any responsible owner would shield their staff from someone persecuting them, whether in person or in a public forum. Period. Narcissists need to understand that there are consequences for their behaviors. Being asked to leave is one of them. Hope this helps. Blessings, Judith
The last sentence of The Lords Prayer is “ And deliver us from evil”. This administrations practice of ripping children from their mother’s arms is evil, pure and simple. Trump will go down in history as a depraved monster, joining the others: Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, so many delighting in the pain and suffering of the defenseless.
Now is a time to join together in prayer and ceremony, magic and ritual. Whatever your path, please join me in decreeing the ending of these atrocities, these crimes against humanity. Let us send light and love to the suffering, bathing them in strength. Let us not give in to despair. We are warriors of light. “ Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for thou art with me.” ( The 23rd psalm).
I stand with the parents who have had their children stolen from them. I stand for the children, the innocents. I stand for the voiceless. Always.
This period in our nations history will live in infamy. Trump is a destroyer. Unfortunately for him, the light always prevails over darkness. Deliverance from evil is at hand. We shall work together to make it so. Blessings, Judith
The Sun is in the sign Gemini for much of June. Gemini is an Air sign, ruled by Mercury. It rules the lungs, arms, hands, and nervous system in the body. The key words for Gemini are “ I Think”. Gemini is a dual sign, the twins. ( Castor and Pollux). It represents flexibility and curiosity, both good traits to have this month.
6/3 is lovely, with the Sun in Gemini Trine to the Moon in Aquarius, both Air signs, while the Moon also Trines Mercury in Gemini. The mind is open and stimulated now. The Moon moves into mystical Pisces on 6/5, forming two sextiles to both Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is sudden and unexpected changes, while Saturn is about patience and stability. This is a good day to begin something that will last.
6/6 has a number of planets aspecting Neptune. I expect more lies to be revealed regarding ongoing investigations. Reach for calmness and try not to engage in some people’s delusional thinking. Avoid debates. 6/11 is good, with the Moon in Taurus Trine to Pluto in Capricorn. Reach for alchemy and magic. It sextiles Neptune, adding in the mystical. Remind yourself that anything is possible.
The New Moon on 6/13 in Gemini invites us to embrace our duality. Some believed that Castor and Pollux were twin brothers, with Castor being human and Pollux being immortal. This would be a good day to acknowledge being an eternal soul having an earthly incarnation, and embracing all of the opportunities that brings.
The Moon moves into Virgo on 6/18. Both the 18th and 19th are wonderful, with a number of positive aspects. The Summer Solstice is on 6/21, when the Sun moves into Cancer.
The Full Moon on 6/28 is expansive and powerful.
This is an excellent month to focus on duality, rather than polarity. Duality is about being conjoined, both/and. Polarity supposes that you have to choose one versus the other, either/or. Spirituality teaches us that there is no “ other”, that we are one with all that is. In one version of the Castor and Pollux myth, when Castor dies, Pollux asks his father, Zeus, to allow him to share his immortality with his twin. Zeus grants his request, creating the constellation Gemini. This month encourages us to embrace and integrate our humanity with our divinity. We are both. We are made of stars, our own unique constellation, dancing through space and time.
May this month be filled with beauty, love, magic, and joy for you. Blessings, Judith
