We all grew up knowing what our birth stone is, right? I'm born in the month of July, so rubies were always my birthstone. I have always loved rubies. Today I’m writing about crystals combined with your astrological chart. I love crystals and became a Certified Crystal Healer with Hibiscus Moon Academy in January 2015.
This past week, I watched Ashley Leavy, Director of Love and Light School. Ashley’s school opens for enrollment biannually. With Hibiscus you get the scientific education of the crystals and stones. Hibiscus was a science teacher at one time herself. Love and Light appears to me as a more of “how-to” school. While watching Love and Light conference, one of the people being interviewed caught my attention over the others. Her name is Shakti Carola Navran.
Shakti was a jeweler along with being an astrologer in Germany. She now lives in Maui. Interestingly, Shakti claims the birthstone we all grew up thinking we had is not our true birthstone. I’ve heard this from Hibiscus first.
It was hard to wrap my heard around. Mainly because I have always thought rubies were my birthstone, and I am very drawn to rubies. So now I have heard the information twice and I am finding it fun to learn something new. Shakti actually believes we have 14 birthstones that correspond to our individual astrological natal charts.
I am a lucky girl, since rubies are still one of my birthstones because my North Node is in Aries and in my fourth houses. Besides being one of my birthstones, rubies are good for warning you of bad luck, illness, or other sorrows when it darkens. It is also a stone of abundance, allowing you to sustain your wealth and joy.
My love stone, according to Shakti, is Emerald. I have to admit, I have never been attracted to emeralds nor did I own an emerald when I found this out. That dark green sparkle just does not appeal to me, so I chose to purchase a raw emerald. For me, the color of raw emerald has more appeal. Now I am wearing it by my heart chakra every day and am looking forward to working with the energy of emerald. In fact, emerald is known as the “Stone of Successful Love”, promoting loyalty and domestic bliss, unconditional love, and friendship. If it changes color, it is considered a sign of infidelity.
For the last couple of years, I have had a real interest in going to Herkimer, New York to dig for Herkimer diamonds with my cousin Heather. I felt even luckier when I found out Herkimer diamonds are connected in three of my astrological houses. I have Herkimer diamond earrings that I found on Etsy on daily as well. Herkimer diamonds are also good for dream recall, linking into guidance from higher dimensions, and facilitates soul retrieval.
When Heather retires we will be off to New York. Another stone I have wanted for a long time is aquamarine. I bought a raw aquamarine from Dawn at Sterling Seraph in Ohio. With my Moon in Aries and in my fourth house, aquamarine is one of my birthstones. Aquamarine is also good for dealing with stress and fear, and it also promotes intuition and aids in finding closure on all levels.
Finally, when I was first dating my husband Dick, he and his sister Cathy went to Austria to visit their brother, Doug, Dick brought me home a beautiful opal necklace. When I wore it, people would tell me it is bad luck to wear an opal if it is not your birthstone. Come to find out I have fire opals as my birthstone with my Sun in Cancer and in the eighth house and Uranus in Cancer and in the eight house. Also, white opal is one of my birthstones with my Mars in Libra and in the tenth house. With my Ascendant in Scorpio, all opals are considered my birthstone. So, my opal necklace is great for me to wear and it is extremely special to me.
Opals should be special to you too, since it heals the earth’s energy fields and induces metaphysical and mystical visions.

So I am sharing this post from Danette May today because last week I helped my girlfriend Susan Adams move to another state. From her I have learned about collagen protein and yesterday I went to Whole Foods and purchased my first container. This morning I started using it. Time will tell how well it will work for me. Trying to cut down on the wrinkles. It is the vanity thing I have because of my Virgo moon (lol).
It is my goal to help as many people as I can be happy and balanced in their mind, body and soul. As always make today a great day.

Weight and belly fat has been a concern for me for over 10 years. Doctors tell me eat less exercise more. I said if I eat any less I will not be eating. I was consuming 1000 calories some days, to be honest less than that most days. The doctor says I am sure you are eating more than you think you are, so I was left without any answers. A few months ago I was talking to my cousin who just graduated to be a nurse (so proud of her). She said there is something off in your body. She said I do not know what it is, but she has been around me enough to know I am not over eating and I am not a snacker.
Shortly after that, I saw information on Facebook about leaky gut. I had never heard of that before so onto google I went. When I went in for my yearly physical, I asked to be checked for a leaky gut. Although the person I was seeing knew what the leaky gut was, I was told they had no way to check for it.
My next stop was Health Matters in Bath, Michigan. They confirmed that I did have a leaky gut and my organs were not properly functioning. Thanks to the high integrity level at Health Maters I was sent to a place in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area for help. If you are in my area and have the same concerns contact me at HealingWithLynne@yahoo.com and I can get a referral coupon to you.
Leaky gut is another name for candida or fungus. It happens when the bad bacteria in your system takes over the good bacteria. This happens taking medications. When you take medications it kills off the good and bad bacteria in your gut. Probiotics are needed to rebuild the good bacteria in your gut.
Another cause is too much sugar in your diet and food that convert into sugar in your system. The last cause that I am aware of is food sensitives; with that test I found most of what I was eating I was sensitive to. At this point, my diet is very strict.
It is my understanding we all have Candida to some extent. When it is under control it poses no concerns. When it grows and multiplies out of control, it can cause numerous symptoms and health concerns. From the tops of our heads with migraines to the tips of our toes with nail fungus. It can result in symptoms in our body including pain and malfunction of organs. Outside of our bodies, we can see different types of rashes.
Here are many of the symptoms caused by an overgrowth of candida, although these may mean other health problems. Always check with your doctor first.
Causes of candida overgrowth
The healthy bacteria in your gut naturally keeps your candida levels in check. However, several factors can cause the candida overgrowth to get out of control:
I do need to say I am not a doctor. My services should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as an additional modality to becoming and remaining healthy. It is recommended you consult with your health professional when concerned about a health related issue.
However, this is something I wish I had known about, but did not. We need to take probiotics to put the good bacteria back into our system. You will need to check with your health provider on how to take them. Probiotics are now a part of my diet and always will be. I’ve heard you start taking them when your medications are done. Another time I have read that you take probiotics four hours after you take your medications. Again, I am not a doctor so I really cannot advise you on this, but I do advise you to seek professional resources should you suspect you have Candida overgrowth.
Best of luck to you…and as always make today a great day! :)
Amethyst is a great crystal to work with for addictions and physic attacks.
Crystals are a great modality to add to what you are already doing to improve health or to stay feeling great. The one I have chosen to talk about today is Amethyst, It is part of the quartz family. Color ranges from light to dark purple. Amethyst helps align your crown chakra. It’s also known to enhance intuition, a great stone for those who are attempting to find their freedom from sobriety of self or another, helps with insomnia, dreaming, helps with the release of addictions and guards against physic attack changing it into love… a great crystal to have around.
Humans and things have certain vibrations, When our vibration is off, crystals are one way to help us back to a good vibrational state. As always “Make today a great day.”

August 24, 2015 was one of the happiest days of my life. I got to meet this lady, Mari Winsor, who, as anyone who studies Pilates knows, is kind of a big deal. She is most famous for working with celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Emma Stone and Melanie Griffith.
My good friend, Mary Jo, studied under Mari Winsor in New York and California. I was doing Reiki on Mary Jo, and little did I know, I was in for a big surprise when Mari called from Bloomfield Hills.
She looked to me and said, "Do you have time to go meet Mari and do Reiki on her?"
I cleared my plans for the evening and pursued such an amazing opportunity. I've wanted to meet her for years, and as fate would have it, now I was on my way to do just that.
It was refreshing to meet someone who, after such a lengthy and famous career, was still so down to earth and kind. I was honored to be able to work on such an amazing human being.
This reaffirmed for me what I have always believed and known to be true - life leads us to the places we want to go and helps us achieve all of our dreams if we only let life unfold. I truly believe that when we let go of trying to force our way into situations, life presents us with the path that is for us and often this means what we dreamed of in the first place. Nothing is impossible, just let life unfold.
And as always - make today a great day!
