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.
That’s an odd title, I know. We have a 2 1/2 year old toddler living with us, Miss Vivian, and sometimes when she’s not feeling well, she gets fussy. Being a clairvoyant Empath really helps during times like that, because I can FEEL her emotions washing through me, the irritability, the discomfort, the anxiety and distress. I can feel it from anywhere in the house. It feels completely different from a tantrum. When that happens, all I need to do is pick her up, and she melts into me, her head on my breasts. She closes her eyes, and just breathes with me. I rock her a little, hum to her, and she calms right down. Her dad and Opa, ( her grandfather, my husband ) try, they love her. But sometimes, it’s the boobs. They work every time. Let’s hear it for the boobs.
There are many things in life I try to avoid. Like spiders. I really try to avoid spiders whenever possible. I try to avoid poison ivy, vegetables, exercise, housework, and Candy Crush Saga game requests. So, I get avoidance. To a point. Here’s what I don’t get: people who avoid facts. How is it, in this age of readily available scientific information, that people still question climate change? Or that racism still exists? Or that misogyny is real? How is that possible? I’ve noticed that this extreme tendency of radical avoidance tends to be pronounced in certain groups of people. People who tend to be male, and white, and Christian. Let’s call this group Republicans. I’ve never encountered a group of people more allergic to facts than they are. It’s actually fairly impressive. You have to wonder if they train for this. If there are classes in reality avoidance, truth avoidance, or facts avoidance.
In any case, I have added Republicans to my list of things to avoid. They are way up there, at this point. Probably second after spiders, and just ahead of kale and rice cakes. And after seeing today’s video of that doctor getting dragged off of a United Airlines flight because he refused to ” volunteer ” to relinquish his paid seat because United had overbooked the flight, and they wanted to put four employees in the paid ticket holder seats, I’m avoiding United. It’s gotten so bad lately, I’m wondering if there’s an outbreak of asshole-itis going around.
I see that the New York Times has won three Pulitzer Prizes for their reporting. Huh. The body that awards Pulitzers must not be aware of the whole ” fake news” thing that the current ( temporarily) occupant of the White House rages about. Oh, well. That’s to be expected, given that sometimes the Times uses words of more than two syllables in their articles. Sad.
I wish facts weren’t so scary to some people. Maybe if we dressed them up, or camouflaged them as bibles or fetuses, it would help. Or not. Not holding my breath on that one.
I have a few new things from Fridays Gem and Mineral show. I was so happy that the dealer from Brazil was back again, that had the black Morion Smokey Quartz points with golden Citrine in the center. He had a gorgeous 10 lb one, which I bought. It is stunning. Smokey Quartz is so healing for Empaths, it is a must have for us. I also bought a 6 lb natural Citrine point, full of rainbows, a 4″ Smokey Quartz Sphere that is Water clear, and 2 clear Quartz Spheres, one is 3.5″, the other is 4″. Wow. I will begin listing them over the next few days. Check my website for new arrivals.
