It's peanut butter jelly time!

Sometimes when I have a great idea for an article I get totally hung up on the title.  I want something catchy, something that will draw you in and make you want to see what I have to say.  After all  isnt that the point of a good title?  For this post I was grasping at straws.  I know what I want to say, but 'Be Positive' or 'Love IS all you need' just werent doing it for me.  Here is where the peanut butter jelly time comes in. 
First, unless you have a peanut allergy, who doesn't love a good pb&j?  Also, I happen to have sitting  next to me a super yummy delicious milk chocolate PB&J candy bar that I recently picked up from Trader Joe's.  AAAAND I got my fried PB&J from our local Zoagies guy.  Hey, let  me tell you, if a funnel cake and a pb&j sammich had a baby, it would be that big ol puff of deliciousness I had for lunch today.  Anyway, I am in an extremely good mood right now and these pb&j delights added to my happy for the day.  I thought lets see where this goes.

Happy is the ulitmate reson for this post.  Last night I hosted a discussion at my shop about how your thoughts really do shape your reality.  If you were there last night you are probably riding this wave of happy right along with me.  I made a few really good points last night and wanted to share them, especially if you werent able to attend.

 First off, there is an invisible energy force field that surround all of us all the time.  its everywhere and is what governs the material realm.  The universe is all waves and particles of energy that conform to our beliefs.  What we expect, the judgments we make, all of that influences the physical world we perceive. Stay with me here... these particle and waves are effected by our thoughts and emotions (which are also energy waves).  So therefore every thought you have then has an effect on this energy field I mentioned earlier.  This field follows the energy wave YOU put out and draws back vibrations that match.  Ohhhhh, making sense now right???

Let me give an example.  Did you ever want a new car and all you could think about is this specific car, make, model, color, down to every last detail?  Did you talk about it to your friends, research it online, maybe even visit a car lot just to take a look?  And then.... did you notice it was showing up everywhere?  Everytime you drove to the grocery store, theres that dream car, take a trip to the gas staton, look , tht car again!  See where I am going with this.  This is something you do ALL the time, the trick is attracting what you WANT and not what you dont want. 

How??? It's easy.  STOP focusing on whaat you dont want.  And dont try to tell me you dont do that.  Yeah, you do and you probably dont realize it.  Everytime you complain about something, you are sending out that energy.  You are attracting what you are complaining about.  Start thinking and talking about the things that bring you joy, about the things you want in life.  Shift your focus on things that will raise your vibration instead of brining it down.  Send love to difficult situations instead of playing the victim card.  The more you do this the easier it will get.

Now I am not saying that thinking positive will keep you from having anything bad ever happen.  Thats just life, tires blow, pipes leak, shit happens... it's how you react to those things that makes a bg difference. If you want good things to happen around you, do good things, dont complain and hope things will get better.
Thinking good thoughts is one way to be happy, and it is probably the most basic way to get started.  Sending love to difficult situations and people that you don't necessarily like is super helpful too.  Face it no matter how loving you try to be there are just some folks out there that are miserable.  Don't shun them, don't ignore them, send them love and move on.  Sometimes those miserable folks are just lonely and don't know what else to do.  You never know.  When in doubt send love out.  It doesn't cost a cent and will make you feel MUCH better in return.

I hope this little article brought YOU some happiness and maybe even a way to deal with the crap that is sometimes dealt to us.  Remember, what you send out you get back.  Love and peace to you.

Tektite is out of this world man

Really, it is, or it was.  There is still much to be learned about Tektites and their origin.  For now most theorize they are a form of glass formed by meteor impact with the earth.  They have no crystal structure and in that regard are similar to obsidian, but not associated with the volcanic process in which obsidian is formed. Their structure is unique and still needs further explanation and exploration. Hmmm, interesting. 

What I have learned so far about these "creatures", and I say creatures in a loving way, is their connection to "other worlds" and higher knowledge.  Because its origins are not of this planet, the common belief about these stones is their ability to enhance other worldly communication. What is other worldly communication? I think that is best left to the individual having the experience to decide.  After all, each persons perception of what anything is, is unique.

Despite its color, it is useful on the third eye.  I say that because typically the upper chakra stones are in the blue, purple/violet or clear range.  Tektite, when place on the third eye is said to open communication with other dimensions and is helpful for clairvoyance and telepathy. This to me makes Tektite a nice companion when trying to aquire information.  No, I dont mean in a secret spy kinda way...silly... Clairvoyance and telepathy open up whole new worlds of information to you.  Okay, so maybe if you wanted to develop these abilities you could use them in a spy like fashion but that's not cool.  Lets stick to using our "powers" for good, shall we? ;)

So I mentioned Tektite is useful on the third eye.  It is also said to balance the energy flow when placed on all the chakras.  You can carry a piece to strengthen your energy field, but keep in mind, this stone tends to draw information to you.  You may have some interesting and insightful encounters, or gain "a-ha" moments while carrying this stone.

What these stones are really useful for, especially when trying to "grow" spiritually, is gaining knowledge from your experiences in life.  Really learning your lessons, however lessening the blow of the less than wonderful experiences you've had to go through to gain that knowledge. In that way you gain the lesson but don't have to remember the pain it may have caused.

These "space rocks" have much to tell us and with some time and patience we can unlock its other worldly secrets. Have you experienced this little black beauty yet? Do you have a story you would like to share about how Tektite has worked in your life? Please feel free to share your comments and experiences below or on my shop facebook page.  Do you need a piece of Tektite to check out for yourself? No problem, I've got them in stock and they are the much more affordable than their cousin  Moldavite (which is a form of Tektite, but lets save that story for another day).  Not local to me? No problem, send me a message through my website.

Thank you for reading my posts.  I hope you find the information useful and entertaining.  Blessings to you always.
