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.
July starts off with some lovely aspects. The Moon in Scorpio on 7/3 forms a Grand Trine aspect, trining the Sun in nurturing Cancer and Neptune in sensitive Pisces. This is wonderful for setting intentions, as well as for dreaming big. The next powerful day is the Full Moon on 7/9. Hold on to your hats… This is another intense Full Moon. We have the Sun at 17 degrees of Cancer opposing the Moon AND Pluto at 17 degrees of Capricorn. Alchemy squared. Adding to that is radical Uranus in Aries squaring all of them, later in the day. There is a desire here for freedom at any cost, purging, transition, and change. July could bring big decisions for people, both personally and as part of a group.
A week later, on 7/16, we have another intense day, with the Moon in fiery Aries, this time conjunct to Uranus, which inclines to sudden unexpected developments, and more of a willingness to move forward. The Moon trines Saturn, the planet of wisdom, patience, and discipline. Good. We’ll need it. Because it squares the Sun, Mars, and Pluto at the same time. It’s as if what gets started on 7/9 gains further momentum on 7/16. Wow. Breathe. Slow down. No matter what the world is doing, we can find serenity within ourselves. Don’t engage. Observe.
7/18 is peaceful and beautiful, with Neptune, Pluto, the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all making positive aspects, bringing a feeling of faith, hope, optimism, and love to uplift us.
The New Moon in Leo on the 23rd is also hopeful and optimistic.
July looks like a month of choices and decisions. It’s apt that July symbolizes summer, fireworks, picnics, independence, and freedom. It appears that fireworks will be the theme of the month. Watch for bombshell revelations in the news. We as a country are good at getting rid of dictators, and freeing ourselves from persecution and oppression. That’s more true than ever now.
This is a month of shedding things that don’t grow our souls, people, places, and things, as they say in AA. Embrace the changes. I have a sign that says ” Change is inevitable. Struggle is an option”. Cancer is a Water sign. In Chinese medicine 5 Element theory, the Water Element is about faith and trust. The limitless opportunities of the Void. Be Water. Go with the flow. Have a beautiful month.
I have always been deeply inspired and moved by music. Music is like oxygen for my soul. Lately, I’ve reached for songs that are reminders of spiritual truths for me, that no matter what has happened to us, we’re still here, still kind, still compassionate. Still love. Nothing that has ever been done to us has diminished our light, our beauty, our soul. I was listening to my iPod yesterday, and one of my favorite songs came on, Carry On, by Fun. It’s really the perfect anthem for where we find ourselves right now, especially for those of us who are not from here, who are Empaths, emissaries of light from the 5th dimension. Some of the lyrics are: ” If you’re lost and alone, or you’re sinking like a stone, carry on. May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, carry on. Carry on, carry on. ‘Cause here we are, We are shining stars, We are invincible, We are who we are. On our darkest day, when we’re miles away, the Sun will come. We will find our way home. If you’re lost and alone, or you’re sinking like a stone, Carry on. May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, Carry on. No one’s ever, no one’s ever gonna stop, no one’s ever gonna stop us now. Carry on, carry on.”
When I think about the things many of us have survived, I am flooded with love for all of us. We are amazing. We are the warriors of the light. I love that part of the song, ” May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, carry on.” We kept going. We never quit. What does that tell you about who you are? About who you have always been? We ARE shining stars. We ARE invincible. Even when we get tired, we’re still invincible. Remember that.
Don’t get bogged down with the negativity of others. That’s their journey, their Karma, their lessons, not ours. We’re on this journey together, an army of light workers, millions strong, joined by love. Stay strong. Do whatever it takes to remind yourself of the truth of who you are. If music uplifts you, go to YouTube and find this song. Turn it up. Blast it. Sing along with it. And CARRY ON! Sending love, Judith
We all know that I am absolutely in love with Smokey Quartz. Yes, I love clear Quartz, too, but for very different reasons. Clear Quartz is the most powerful amplifier of intention and energy that there is. It is the solid embodiment of the Light. All of my major demonstrations in my life have come from working with my big Dow Quartz Point. It shoots a column of white light straight up into the ethers into the Causal Plane. It’s been with me for 20 years, a true soul mate Crystal.
Smokey Quartz is very different. It doesn’t amplify light, it diffuses and refracts it. Scientists have studied it, and have come to the conclusion that it is the radiation it has absorbed from the earth over millions of years, that causes this phenomenon. Merlin has called Smokey Quartz the Empath of the mineral kingdom. As Empaths, we are the human embodiment of Smokey Quartz. We feel what other living things feel, within our own bodies. We then allow those feelings to flow through us and out. Or we should. Sometimes we hold onto them, out of compassion . Uh oh. Not good. Smokey Quartz teaches us how to release energy, how to refract and diffuse it. It has no peer in this regard. It gently supports us as it does that. It also has a high Lithium content, which is calming and soothing.
I have been working on listing the new arrivals. Here are a few of the bigger ones. They are all gorgeous. Some of the larger ones are Dow Crystals, the same goes for the larger clear Quartz Points I listed last week. Some have inclusions of creamy Lithium, some have Hematite inclusions, some have inclusions of dark green Chlorite. ( Chlorite is said to be the best healer for reversing mutating cell growth.) All of these are now up on my website. I know, finally. More to come. Enjoy the photos. Blessings, Judith
