Plate of Inspiration (19/12) – Balance


Good morning! Hooray for Saturday. I’m SO ready for my Christmas holiday break 🙂

This week’s Plate of Inspiration is about balance – it’s not coincidental that this card appeared in the crazy lead up to Christmas!

This card from the Healing with Angels deck says that our angels know we’re busy with the many demands on our time. They want to help switch our responsibilities through the process of balance. Whenever our schedules become disproportionate, our energy drops. Lowered energy creates the illusion that there isn’t enough time in the day, so a vicious cycle of time limitation ensues.

The Balance card asks us to add regular does of meditation, exercise and play to our days. The angels remind us that balancing our life between work, play, spirituality, exercise and relationships helps us to grow and feel joy.

I chose calming, balancing stones for this plate.

The light green Prehnite is a stone of unconditional love and the crystal to heal the healer. It enhances the visualisation process and indexes deep meditation in which the higher self is contacted. It is a stone that enables us to always be prepared.

Honey calcite is a stone that gently amplifies energy. It also assists in the challenges associated with change. Honey calcite is associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras, and helps bring balance between these two chakras.

The small green emerald stones are stones of inspiration ad infinite patience. Know as the “stone of successful love”, Emerald brings domestic bliss and loyalty, and keeps a partnership in balance. This stone ensures physical, emotional and mental equilibrium.

And the quartz points and optical calcite pyramids bring clarity and light.

I hope you have a balanced week in the final run up to Christmas!
