Sometimes I see myself in a long ago incarnation as a tangled-grey-hair crone, living alone in a forest hut, mumbling in conversation with someone no one else can see…she talks of faeries and tree spirits, who are her companions and show her which herbs will cure which ailments. The neighborhood boys see-saw between being scared of her and taunting her with thrown pebbles and nasty rhymes. She insists the faery people are real, but the town folk consider her a bit daft!
Old hags…crazy male scientists…nature lovers…people who could see what others couldn’t were often mocked in the old days.
This sometimes feels like the era of vindication for all the old crones and madmen throughout history, who really were talking to spirits or could see numbers and inventions floating before them.
At last even our solid sciences are catching up with these strange visionaries. And now through digital photography we can prove we are talking to someone – because we have just taken its picture!
Some of our customers dislike wearing something close to their throat – a throwback perhaps to the hangings of male and female nature lovers, during the Dark Ages – but they are admitting to this now, coming forward to embrace their powers. We often recommend these gentle souls wear pendants of blue lace agate, or if that is too much then blue calcite or blue celestite. This helps them to honor, value and express their higher self and their higher awarenesses, and to ground them on earth.
So here’s to all the men and women who remember being thought crazy because they could see what others could not – and here’s to a world which in many places is willing to cede that perhaps these oddballs have something to teach us all!
Many you embrace your own distinct gifts, and share them with others. We ALL have a gift to share!
