Angelite: the Messenger Stone

by Margaret Ann Lembo

Angelite Stone

“I send and receive messages with ease and grace. Guidance and inspiration from my angels and other spirit guides come to me moment by moment. I interpret the messages I receive and apply them to my life with wisdom.” Margaret Ann

You have the ability to talk with and listen to angels – so much so that it’s as real as being able to speak with and hear your friends. Open yourself to communication with the angelic realm and the realm of invisible helpers. Remember that communication is 2 ways, sending and receiving. Messages come in a variety of ways with signs in nature, billboards and many other ways. Pay attention to the signs.

Chakra Awakening BookAngelite is good for activating the throat chakra and the 6 clairs, i.e. clairvoyance, claircognizance, clairolfaction, clairgustation, clairaudience and clairsentience. These are all of your intuitive qualities. This innate ability is expansive and includes messages from loved ones on the other side, spirit guides, and ascended masters.

Use angelite to manifest Divine Timing. Imagine you are always in the right place at the right time with the right people and it will be so!!

Tumbled Angelite is available online or at our Minneapolis store.

Shadowscapes Tarot Artist Notes

During the creation of Shadowscapes Tarot, the Major Arcana was easy to create, in terms of imagery and motivation. The archetypes of the Majors are enticing to any artist, imbued as they are with the collective subconscious of meaning, and familiar to even those who know little or nothing of Tarot. “Death,” “The Tower,” “The Empress”…each of these conjures a host of ready visual associations and metaphors just from hearing the name alone.

The Minor Arcana was much harder. A number and a suit: how to create meaning from something that seems random? How to motivate myself artistically to not hold back, but to pour everything I have within me into each card? It would be a shame to have created a body of work I was proud of in the Major Arcana, and then to fall short when coming to the rest of the deck.

Ace of SwordsI decided on one thing immediately. Just as I had done with the Major Arcana, I would proceed with the cards in order. Aces first, twos, threes, etc. By not allowing myself to skip ahead to what might be perceived as the “fun” images, I forced my mind to look into each card to find the meaning in it, to seek out its unique beauty, and to determine how it intersected with my life experiences and personal symbology.

After having come to this decision, I was surprised at how well it worked. I suppose that should not have been unexpected, for the popularity of the tarot and the fact that it has lasted and is so ageless is because the meanings of the cards span the whole of the human experience. If a single card is isolated, and one digs deep enough into the soul, there is bound to be some connection that one finds to what that card signifies. As a result, the journey of creating the deck felt like an extended exercise in meditation, spanning the four and a half years it took to complete the project.

At times during the journey, it felt like purest synchronicity the way inspiration would present itself as I approached a card. Or perhaps it was as I have said: that the connections are all there in our lives, only needing the moment of meditation to comprehend how that puzzle piece fits into the weaving. These links always exist, but they are not recognized as such until they are actively searched for. [Read more…]

Bloomin’ Crocus

Crocus Bloom April 9 2008Fickle Flower

I thought I was clever to catch the crocus before it bloomed.
I took my picture and posted it at noon.
But if I had only waited an hour or two,
I would have caught this happy view
drinking the sun to show off its bloom.

It’s the first flower of the season. Happy Spring!

Happy Poetry Month!
