Plate of Inspiration (23/01) – Mysticism and Intuition

Mysticism and Intuition

Good morning! This week’s Plate of Inspiration is about Mysticism and Intuition. I’m still getting familiar with the Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards (the card with the purple edge), so it’s an adventure for me every time I use this deck!

It seemed to be a purple, third-eye kinda reading today.

This card says: “It is wise to be the observer. Do not respond until you are certain. The unknown is not easy, but it is no longer necessary to fear.”

It suggests this question for consideration: am I ignoring my intuition? What I suspect is probably true. I must breathe.

Key ideas: ignoring signs; unknown motivation; intuitive knowing; fear of the unknown; journey

Key words: intuition; courage; uncharted

I have added the Intuition mandala and essential oil blend from the gorgeous Lemon Canary. This delicious blend contains organs Jojoba Oil and essential oils of Lavender, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Rosemary, Clary Sage and Chamomile Roman.

Around the plate, the top left and right pyramids are Fluorite (these specimens are more purple and clear than the other green Fluorite pyramids I have in the Gift Shop), and the bottom two pyramids are Amethyst.

Fluorite grounds an integrates spiritual energies, and it also promotes unbiased impartiality and heightens intuitive powers. It helps to dissolve fixed patterns of behaviour and gently opens the door to the subconscious, bringing suppressed feelings to the surface for resolution. It increases self confidence and dexterity.

Amethyst is beneficial to the mind, and can calm or stimulate as required. It’s also one of the most spiritual stones, promoting love of the divine, encouraging selflessness and spiritual wisdom. Amethyst is known to be an extremely powerful and protective stone with a high spiritual vibration. This gorgeous purple stone guards against psychic attack, transmuting the energy into love. It is typically associated with the third-eye, or sixth chakra.

The clear quartz points amplify our intuition.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
