Hello! I created my first video and created a YouTube channel! I figured it would be better to save my videos on YouTube instead of hear to save space.
My video is about taking a look at my Chakras and how to do that. I also go into a few stones you can use on each Chakra. I’d like to go into more depth on each chakra and am planning on it. I’m going to try and make the videos a bit shorter… this one is almost an hour but I’m learning.
Well, I hope you enjoy it!
Brightest Blessings!! Mama Owl ~ aka Carol

Thulite is a new stone in my arsenal but what type of stone is it and what is it good for?
I’ve learned that Thulite, also known as Roseline Zoisite, is a mostly manganese type of zoisite. Manganese is what gives it that pretty pink color. It is mostly found in Norway but pockets have been found in New Zealand, Austrian Tyrol, North Carolina and Washington! Yes, in the US!
So what is it good for you ask? Well, in looking through the internet it seems that it is a Heart and 3rd Eye Chakra stone. Fire Mountain Gems website says that it is “known as a stone of expression and passion, giving people the confidence to speak and perform in front of others. A great choice for introverts, this stone can increase self-confidence and make us more outgoing.”
When I sit and hold this stone it gives me the feeling that it actually connects the Heart Chakra to the 3rd Eye Chakra through the Throat Chakra. What does that mean you ask? Well, this stone will help you to speak and see through your heart. This stone seems to calm your heart and body so that you can sense, using your 3rd eye, the heart of others so you can speak to them with a caring frame of mind. This stone would be really good for those who are care givers, in the medical field when working with patients, Reiki Masters who work with families of loved ones who are passing away or helping someone to pass away. I feel that it has a gentle confidence to help those stepping into a new job such as a grade school teacher or a teacher for special needs kids. It’s also a good stone for Psychics since they are essentially using the 3 chakras (along with the Crown Chakra) to give messages. I feel that it calms and relaxes the body enough to help us connect with our spirituality whether you believe in God or any other entity. It does not feel like a high energy stone in the sense that it gets us up and moving or gives us energy to get up and moving. It does help us to have confidence in a very calming sort of way.
One thing to always remember… Always Always go by how the stone makes you feel. If you pick up a stone and you don’t get what you’ve read on the internet then you go by how it makes YOU feel, not what others tell you how it should make you feel.
I have had some people pick up a Rose Quartz and it does absolutely nothing for them but then they pick up a piece of Pink Calcite and they love how it makes them feel. It’s all in how the energy of our bodies connect with the energy of the stone. Maybe that person’s energy has already had enough of the Rose Quartz energy but the Pink Calcite has a different frequency or vibration and it makes them feel good.
All in all, this is a good stone to have around if you need that calm confidence push. My husband bought me this for my birthday plus several smaller stones. I think I’ll have him make some pendants out of this and wear it! It’s quite beautiful.
Thank you for checking in and reading along. Love and Light Always Mama Owl ~ Carol
It’s been a long time since I wrote. A lot has happened in the past several years which has convinced me to clear my energy fields and start anew. Recently, my daughter of 32 years passed away. I used to tell people, when they were dealing with a loved ones passing, that they are nearby and are full of love for them. I believed that they were no longer in pain and suffering. I still believe that. Since my daughter’s passing I truly thought she would reach out to me but since I have been so far removed from my intuition/abilities in the past several years, I don’t feel her presence. That has been tearing me apart. I ask… why can’t I feel her? Why hasn’t she visited me? But… maybe she has and I don’t feel it or sense it. I do talk to her in my mind or out loud, depending on who’s around, and sometimes, I think, I sense her response. But is it real? Am I really sensing her? Going through this has made me realize that I truly have stepped away for my abilities… my love… my passion. That is something my daughter was and is unhappy about. She knew how much I loved sharing my inner knowledge of stones, of the fae and helping those who need assistance with healing and all things about spiritual energy.
Today my family and I went to a gem and mineral show in Prescott Valley, AZ and I found the fluorite wand you see above. My daughter-in-law, Lia, convinced me to get it. Once I looked up fluorite I realized that my daughter was with me when I found it. I read… Mental enhancement and clarity, improved decision making, clearing the energy field. I knew it was her telling me I need to clear my energy field so that I can get back to doing what I love.
The day my daughter died I had a stroke… a small one mind you but enough to thoroughly shake my world. I couldn’t remember things as well as I had… I couldn’t type as well as I had… I couldn’t speak as well as I had. I had to literally slow down and relearn some things so that I don’t fall back into the stress and pain of the world I was in. Sometimes I think my daughter had a hand in me having the stroke to MAKE me slow down. She knew I was not in a good place and reminded me of that all the time. My son and husband did the same and still does.
So, here I am, writing again… sharing again… trying to move forward with the awareness that I HAVE TO slow down and start enjoying my stones… my abilities… my passion again. I have to learn how not to get stressed anymore… how to stop worrying so much about others to the point that I take on their pain and suffering… I can’t do that anymore no matter how difficult it is.
So, here I am… learning again… sharing again… loving again but in a whole new way. Clearing my energy fields and learning a whole new way how to assist in the healing of others without taking on their pain and suffering. It takes time but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get better and get back to my passion.
So what can fluorite do for us? It can do just that! Help us clear our energy fields from the mire and muck this world has caused us to collect. Once we do that clear thinking will begin to happen and that will allow us to make better decisions.
Try this… sit with your fluorite every morning and ask the universe to help you clear your energy fields… take this muck and mire away from me so that I may start anew. What? You don’t have any fluorite you say? If not then take this picture of mine and focus on it. That will allow the energies of the fluorite to come to you. Focus on it and it will surround you with love and goodness.
Here is another picture of fluorite that might help. Allow that energy to flow through you and take the nastiness away.
I’m going to start working on this first thing in the morning. I would love to hear how your fluorite workout is going.
Isn’t this stone gorgeous!?! I love it’s deep sea blue.
The picture below shows how it is commonly found. It’s mix of Malachite, the dark green color, then the swirls of deep sea blue, the Azurite, and then the light blueish turquoise color, the Chrysocolla, is simply beautiful!
What is Azurite?
It’s is a copper based stone often found in copper mines. We should have tons of that here in Arizona since we have copper mines galore! Hmmm… I’ll have to look into that. 🙂
So, you may be asking yourself… What can Azurite help me with?
Well let me tell ya… it is great for activating your third eye chakra! It also helps to develop some psychic abilities such as Clairaudiance, which is hearing spirit, Clairvoyance, which is seeing spirit, and good ol’ Intuition. It works well with your third eye chakra and your throat chakra because of it’s deep blue color. Remember, the throat chakra is associated with the color blue and the third eye is associated with the color indigo. This stone falls in between the two. This stone will also help develop a closer relationship with the Divine/Universe/God/your High Self because of the communication through the throat chakra. Anytime you develop a stronger connection with the Divine, your crown chakra is activating so this stone will help with the crown chakra as well. This stone, overall, will help you develop and keep the higher chakras balanced.
That’s great, but what about healing and just overall wellbeing? Can it help with my body functioning better?
Yes! This stone is great for learning and brain function. It helps to stimulate those synapses in the brain so you can remember things for tests and stuff. It also keeps you focused and have a clear mind. For example: I had to present some information to a room full of people and I had been feeling kind of sluggish and not being able to focus very well. Needless to say I… was… nervous! So I had worn my Azurite to work that day. I also added a Carnelian for courage and Sugalite for love and compassion. I felt pretty good that morning and my mind was clear and focused! I was actually quite surprised at how well I felt. So I got up in front of all these people and gave my presentation without a hitch! It was Awesome! Because Azurite is deep blue it resonates with your throat chakra which helps you to speak clearly. It also works with the brain to have clear thoughts and those synapses were firing in the right spots so I was doing very well.
Not everyone has the same experiences with stones so if the stone doesn’t feel right for you it’s best to let it go and move on to another. Don’t get discouraged… that particular stone just wasn’t meant for you. Plenty of stones on Mother Earth! 🙂
Ok! What else does this stone have to offer?
It’s great for helping you meditate because of what it does to your brain. Remember what I mentioned up above? If your brain is able to focus you don’t have all these other thoughts fighting for your attention so you are better able to focus on meditating. This stone also helps you to relax and go deeper into meditation. It helps you communicate with your guides and retain what you have discussed with them. Anytime you can focus without those nagging thoughts we all have you can focus on yourself better and allow yourself to do more inner work.
A rabbit came to me the other day and has stuck with me until I would write about him. I was leaving for work one morning and there he was… sitting under our hauling trailer. I could feel the fear coming off of him and I instantly started talking to him telling him that he’s ok and that I wouldn’t hurt him. He seemed to be frozen so I headed up to my car and left. That night, when I got home, he was in the same exact spot! LOL Now I know he had to have moved but it was strange that he was in that same exact spot. So… when an animal comes into our life like that, that isn’t a normal occurrence we have, well I have to stop and take notice. What is Rabbit’s Energy trying to tell me.
The first thing that I noticed from this rabbit was the amount of fearful energy he was exuding. It was coming off him in waves. So I begin to wonder… am I exuding fear? Am I afraid of something? Well… to be honest… yes. We’re all afraid of something. Sometimes it’s a crippling fear. Fear can be about so many different things and sometimes we may not even be aware of it because we’ve had a particular focus in our minds that we’ve just gotten used to it. So let’s dig a little and see if we can figure out where this fear is coming from.
First of all, let’s pin point our obvious fears. Some typical fears are of bugs, certain types of animals and certain types of activities like flying for instance. Now let’s dig a little deeper. Stop and listen to your mind for a minute. Sit back and just listen to the thoughts running through your head. This may take a little bit if you’re not used to paying attention to them. Sometimes… we say very negative things about ourselves and we don’t even realize we’re doing it. So let’s work on an example. You’re at work and about to attend a meeting where you need to pitch an idea that will change procedures for your department as well as a couple of others. This idea, for some, will instantly put up a red flag because they are afraid of speaking in large groups but let’s sit and think about that for a minute… what kind of thoughts run through your mind. Do they resemble “No one is going to listen to you so I don’t even know why you’re trying.” “Who are you to suggest such things?” “You look terrible so no one will want to even look at you.” “Why should I have to do this… my boss should be doing it.” These are very harsh and make me cringe even writing them but it wasn’t too long ago that the thoughts running through my head said those very same things. These types of thoughts don’t only create fears but they also create strong negative energy that sound us and make us physically ill. Just look around you sometime and pay attention to people as you pass by. Do they look sad and as if they are beaten up emotionally? That’s probably because they have these thoughts constantly going through they heads. Such a sad thing. But! We can change that! Let’s find out how.
How to battle those negative voices in your head
The more and more we say these negative things to ourselves the more we fear things and situations. So how do we turn that around? By paying attention to our negative thoughts and turning them around to make them positive. Let’s try this out with our examples above. First example: “No one is going to listen to you so I don’t even know why you’re trying.” Let’s change this to say… “Everyone will listen to me and like my ideas.” And physically smile when you say it! You may get resistance. I know… sounds strange doesn’t it but we’ve conditioned our minds to think negatively so it will try to stay negative. Just keep trying and eventually those negatives will turn into positives and I guarantee you it will affect you in ways you never could have imagined. It turned my whole life around. Let’s try another example. “Who are you to suggest such things?” Some people literally feel they have nothing positive to contribute because they feel they are nobodies. That is so untrue! We all have something to contribute in this world. So… let’s turn that into a positive. “I am an amazing person who has great ideas that people want to hear.” Don’t forget to smile. The more you say it, the more you lift your spirits. Last example and this one, I believe, is most important. “You look terrible so no one will want to even look at you.” This one breaks my heart. I struggled with this one for a long time and you would not believe how many other people feel this every day. So let’s turn this one around! This one requires you to stand in front of a mirror. I know, it’s hard. Some of you hate the mirror and barely even look in one but we’re going to do this. Stand in front of a mirror and say these words out loud… “You are beautiful!” “You are amazing!” “You are intelligent!” “Everyone loves you!” “I Love You!” Some of you may begin to cry. I did. I got teary eyed typing this out because I remember how hard this was for me. If you don’t that’s ok too. If you start crying and you can’t talk… then cry it out and start again. You see, our society teaches us, and sometimes our families, that if we are not the perfect look then we are ugly and not worthy of anything in life. This is where our fears stem from. We need to change that and once we do we will begin to feel worthy and have positive thoughts and then send positive energy out into the world. That’s what changes the world our own positive energy. The more we put out there the more everyone feels.
It’s funny how one little rabbit brought all this out. I had no idea where he would take me writing this today and now that I look back at this post I can’t help but love it. Thank you Rabbit for making me sit down and send this message out to the world.
Left Card: Throat Chakra “I speak my truth and encourage others to speak theirs”
The Throat Chakra is linked to sound, communication, and self-expression. Its name is Vishuddha and means ‘purification’. The color associated with it is blue and it is situated at the center base of the neck. This card is a reminder to engage your heart and mind before speaking. Your words have great power over your own life as well as the lives of others.
Middle Card: Sun Goddess “I celebrate each sunrise and recognize the healing energies of the sun.”
Since the beginning of time, the sun has shone its vibrant, life-giving energy on the Earth. Acknowledge the vital part the sun plays in the Universe. Greet the sun with gratitude each morning and give thanks for its warmth and energy. If you spend most of your day indoors, start putting aside time daily to sit or walk in the sunlight making sure you protect from the harsher rays of the sun.
Right Card: Crystal Ascension “I am attuned to the universal wisdom and energy of the crystal kingdom.”
You are being asked to bring crystals and minerals into your personal environment. Your current environment contains too much artificial energy from material possessions, cell phones, computers and microwaves which causes an imbalance in both your body’s energy field as well as the energy within and around your home and work-space. Crystals contain the earth’s natural energy fields as well as stored wisdom, which they have accumulated through the centuries of being on this planet. Intuitively select one or more crystals to carry with you or wear at all times and others to place around your home and work-space.
If you would like please share any comments on your results! 🙂
“I move easily and confidently through the changes in my life.”
“We often become complacent in our lives and resist or are fearful of change. But change brings new opportunities, friendships, knowledge, and experiences. This card is reminding you that all things in life change: the seasons, your body, and situations. By learning to embrace the changes that present themselves in your life and seeking out the positive within these changes, you will realize that change can be exciting. If you constantly resist change your life will stagnate and you will have little joy and may begin to feel that your life is meaningless. The Universe presents new opportunities in your life in order for you to grow and fulfill your soul’s purpose. When change does occur, allow yourself to flow smoothly and easily with it. Do not force nor resist it. Divine timing will allow the transitions you need to go through in your life to occur in the correct sequence and at the correct time. Trust that all will occur when and how it is meant to.”
Kim says it beautifully… embrace the change. Sometimes change can be so very difficult. We grasp on to what we know, sometimes not realizing we are holding others back from what their soul needs. Being a mom I find myself doing that more and more thinking I am protecting my babies. Well… they aren’t babies anymore mom! It’s time to let change happen even though every inch of me is screaming… “NO! It’s your job to protect them!” Gosh this is so hard but I can’t be the protector anymore. I have to let my baby birds fly.
So fly baby birds and know that your over-protective mom is always here, ever supporting you, ALWAYS proud of you. I love you so very much. It’s time and I realize that now. No more holding you back.
Love & Light Always Mama Owl … Sometimes Mama Bear
Always your loving Mom.
What are they and what is stored within them? Researched and Written by Carol Gallegos ~ August 5, 2015
The above question, as well as many others, come up when I ponder the idea. How many lives, if you believe in past lives, are stored in these records? All of them? What if this is my first life as a human and I’ve lived many as another type of being… are those stored there too? How can I access them? Once I have access, how do I know they are mine and not someone else? Yep… lots of questions come up but for now… let’s just deal with the first one… What are the Akashic Records and what is stored within them?
The following photos were taken by me and entered in the county fair.
I call this photo “Footprints”. Most people don’t realize that Arizona gets snow. Well this picture was taken outside my fiance’s front door in Kachina Village right outside Flagstaff, Arizona. It was taken a few years ago and we were snowed in for a day because of all the snow. I believe we had 2 or 3 feet of snow. We had shoveled the snow the night before and woke up to more. The “Kid”, his kitty, decided to make his mark on the newly fallen snow as seen by his footprints.
This picture called “Florence Courthouse” is a beauty! I love the contrast of the building and sky. The courthouse is the original courthouse of Florence, Arizona. Everything below this point had scaffolding all around as they were fixing a lot of damage.
This one got third place of the five photos I entered.
The next two photos were also entered but received no ribbons. I still love them! 🙂
A yellow cactus flower.
This tree is on the top of Mt. Elden in Flagstaff, Arizona. The winds are so strong there that some of the trees actually grow twisted. These type of trees are homes to birds such as the bald eagle.
