Does the Trickster keep bringing the “same old” problems into your life? Need to release patterns, habits, baggage or cycles that are no longer serving you well? Changing jobs? Moving house? Need to respond differently to a ‘stormy’ situation?
“Loving Storm” gemstone elixir is intended to facilitate powerful change for bringing in positive energy while supporting your heart through the transition.
Lovingly prepared with:
Fulgurite: Sand struck by lightning and solidified by the intense heat invokes quick & powerful transformation.
The Morrigan: A Celtic deity of Battle who sometimes appears in the form of Crow, this elixir was empowered on an altar dedicated to The Morrigan.
Airts of the North: In the Celtic Wheel of the my lineage, the North is the place of Battle and of the Warrior, but also the calm before the storm. The quiet resting place where seeds of ideas germinate before sprouting into action. The Cailleach lives here, an old woman Creatrix with destructive storm energy, also of Celtic decent.
Citrine: Brings Happiness, Joy and Optimism. Citrine offers courage & self discipline, supports getting tasks done & matters settled. Great for uplifting mood and brings Abundance, good fortune & feelings of Generosity. Helpful with healing emotional trauma, sleep disturbances, and addictions.
Rose Quartz: Supporting with unconditional love, a very soothing and happy stone. It comforts and heals any wounds the heart has accumulated & dissolves stored energy from trauma. The Soul sighs with relief when it senses Rose Quartz energy as it intuitively knows healing has come with gentleness, forgiveness, compassion, kindness and tolerance.
Wild Woman Mystery Card: I pulled the ‘Illumination’ card from this deck and kept it on the altar beside the elixir. Illumination is an Awakening. Your Divine nature. Purifying your body and soul. ”Thanks for giving me every experience I have had...it has taught me what I needed to learn.”

For those of you interested in Astrology, the planetary aspects also supported this elixir nicely.
Full Moon in Aries: Decisive, forceful, a high-strung and controlling Moon, as well as being spontaneous, energetic, and honest. It suggests an aggressive attitude, quick temper, impulsiveness and brutally direct behaviour, acting with emotion rather than reason, restless and risk-taking.
Mars squares Neptune: lends ability to dissolve old angers and pains. To ”bury the hatchet.” An opportunity to let go of violence or tension caused by differences, and empower those who once felt like victims, a shadow side of Neptune.
Venus Retrograde in Scorpio: to take us into the past for better or worse, of enduring desolate moments, teetering on the edge, and recovering Joy afterward. From this square we may also be able to notice and let go of an old pattern of avoidance and find a new way to face our problem peacefully. Or find that our motivations, our old reasons for doing what we do, also dissolve, and now we need to search for fresh inspiration. - *Excerpt from We’Moon, a fabulous resource www.wemoon.ws
Sun: Created on the Full Moon, empowered overnight & bottled on the day the Sun shifted zodiacal signs - from airy Libra to watery Scorpio. Therefore, latent in the “loving Storm” elixir is the need to complete old business on a high note.
Emotional Charge: During the day of this elixir creation I went through the gamut of healthy emotions related to big stormy change. As the external world heated up I was able to fully embrace Trust and Calm instead of fear, then a short lived & appropriate shake to my core as ‘lightning struck’, followed by an easy regaining of Centeredness and Faith in the process of allowing the Highest Good to manifest as the Universe intends it. A positive internal change had solidified while the external realm makes the big shift for the better.
Shamanic Elements: Guidance from the Cailleach, the Morrigan, the Warrior & Airts of the North for this creation process was incorporated. Transfiguration with Áine, a Celtic goddess of Sovereignty, the Sun, Love & Delight also infused the “Loving Storm” elixir.
