Last week, I strolled through the Cultural Survival Bazaar in the Prudential Mall in Boston. Check out this gorgeous crystal candle holder I picked up.
I bought this beautiful, handmade crystal candle holder from Roseanne Romiglio-Ashley, the artist behind Four Winds One Breath.
Roseanne is a wonderful, warm spirit and I liked her immediately.
She explained that her ancestors guide her to make each piece.
She works with their hands over hers. Beautiful stuff, ancestral spirit work.
Her heritage is a blend of Mi’Kmaq, Malecite (Algonquin), Blackfoot, French Canadian and Italian.
She creates each piece with a specific intention and imbues it with a prayer.
As I looked at my candle holder, she said to me, “If this piece is for you, the prayer on the card underneath it will make sense to you.”
And it 100% did.
I won’t repeat the entire prayer here, but it’s all about evolving into the next stage, while staying firmly connected to the earth.
I chose a piece with a spiral, made from stones and naturally sparkly Arkansas quartz.
It has such an intensely sweet high vibration.
More on Arkansas quartz in another post. It’s powerful juju if you can find a piece or two.
Roseanne shared that these particular stones all sat on her windowsill for a full month during the last total eclipse.
No wonder I felt magnetically drawn to them!
The spiral resonates deeply with me.
In the practice of Reiki, the earth connection symbol is based around a spiral.
It came with a pure Beeswax tealight, which for me, unites the energy of the Bee Spirit Totem with the element of fire, making it a powerhouse of creative energy.
She gave me a printed card with a beautiful prayer from her ancestors prayer on it—and a big hug.
I’m excited to start to light this up in my sacred space and work with it in meditation.
I’m a stoneworker, as you guys are coming to know, and am intensely drawn to crystals and rocks.
It’s such a beautiful energy tool, combining high vibration quartz energy, Bee spirit energy from the beeswax candle, and the element of fire.
Let’s see what messages it helps to surface.
