‘All things are one. When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.’ - Paulo Coelho
What better time to develop a lineage connection than in the bewitching season of October. It is a time often associated with the spirit, ghosts, and those that have come before us. Whether you celebrate Halloween, Samhain, or Día de Muertos, we are entering a liminal time which can be powerful for these practices.
Reaching out for support from your female ancestors can be powerful magic for matters of the heart. We carry with us not only our own imprint of love but also those of our ancestors.
Did you know that there is a special moment in time where three generations of women exist in one body? Because female embryos develop all the eggs they will carry while in utero, you, your mother, and your grandmother all came together for a brief moment in time as your maternal grandmother was pregnant with your mother.
The female body is an incredible container of medicine and wisdom, and calling upon this connection and your personal lineage can be a powerful tool for healing.
Asking for support from your lineage, or something greater than yourself can help to normalize your lived experience. It can help you to understand and process your personal trauma.
Let’s start by acknowledging that trauma is a loaded word in the healing world. Every human has their own relationship to it. Sometimes we refer to moments as big ‘T’ trauma-- like a divorce, an abuse, a death. Sometimes the little ‘t’ traumas, the everyday little things that affect your nervous system.
“It's not about the cards you're dealt, but how you play the hand.” ― Randy Pausch
This month we are featuring our trio of universal shadow workers to support you through this time. Meet our Rare Obsidians: Silver Sheen, Gold Sheen, and Rainbow,
They each carry the grounding powerful energies of this volcanic glass with their own flavor.Check out what they each look like here.
Rare Obsidians have a deep resonance for helping to unwind trauma (big and little ‘t’) by connecting us to energies greater than ourselves and helping us to cut the cords that keep us feeling like a victim in our stories. Did you know many cultures used obsidian to create cutting and piercing tools? Knives, arrows, even surgical blades!
Silver Sheen Obsidian contains the universal star energies of the Milky Way. With the extra support of the collective to guide you. Think of Simba looking to the stars and his ancestors. 🦁
Gold Sheen Obsidian has assistance from solar masculine energy. It is a cardinal energy to support life initiations and to push you towards new experiences.
Rainbow Obsidian has a deep connection to the expansiveness of lightwave magic. It can help you address your shadow from new perspectives and allowing you to feel the full spectrum of your emotions.
No matter what you are going through, however, connecting to something greater than yourself can help you to realize you are not alone. Because darling, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
