Utilize this grid to bring more power to your stones and reading
Manifesting Tarot Readings Crystal Grid
1 Red Jasper Egg (Key Stone)
1 Red Jasper Spear (Grounding Stone)
5 Septarian (Double Pentagram Crystal Grid)
5 Smooth Poppy Jasper (Double Pentagram Crystal Grid)
5 Tourmaline (Pentagram Crystal Grid)
This crystal grid helps protect, ground, and manifest your tarot readings. The red jasper egg is used to help the reader tap into their own clairvoyant ability, while using the red jasper spear (grounding stone) to manifest and ground the intentions of the reading to the physical realm. The 3 Pentagrams formed are to manifest the 3 aspects needed for a clear and personal reading. The black tourmaline (pentagram crystal grid) is the outer most shield, blocking any negativity, entities, or attacks on you or the reading. While the Septarian (double pentagram crystal grid) is used to clearly interpret the divinatory meaning of each of the cards from your reading. Septarian also brings a harmony to you and the cards, allowing for a deeper connection and understanding. The smoothed poppy jasper (double pentagram crystal grid) places a shield around the reader and your reading, blocking any outside influences from diverging the insight gained from the reading.
Keep the grid up, until the reading that you received has manifested itself completely.

1 Clear Quartz Pyramid (Keystone)
8 Peridot (Squared Grid Formation)
The 8 Peridot (Squared Grid Formation) anchoring the intention to shield and ground the heart chakra (promoting peridot’s healing, comforting, and loving energy). It creates a double square shield around the heart chakra, protecting it’s emotional well being, allowing the heart to experience a state of emotional peace encouraged by tranquility and promoting calmness.
The Quartz Pyramid (Keystone) encourages your subconscious in this newly found state of emotional being to grow in understanding, exploring and enlightening the physical mind to the “Truths” of our universe.
The Spectralite Hematite (Grounding Stone) adds another layer of spiritual and emphatic shielding, protecting against outside negative influences and beings, while at the same time grounding the negativity burdening it.

Amplifying gemstone energy with grids
The Fascination with Gemstones Continues –
Did you know that by putting stones with other stones you increase their energy? By adding mixed stones to a grid you amplify the energies still more.
Inner Oasis Mind Body Spirit now carries Mini Grid Kits from Spirit Whisperings (an Oregon Company). Each 4 x 4 kit is complete with a grid, stones, instructions and an activation affirmation. Each kit is focused for ease in use. Shown above are Sooth Nerves, Create Balance, and Becoming Love.
Try one of these on your home alter.. or in a gift card to a friend.
It is a Supermoon because the the moon will be at a point in it’s orbit that is closer to earth. It is a Blue moon because it is the second full moon in the same month. The moon will have a reddish orange tone because of the Lunar Eclipse that will occur.
All of these occurrences at one time are rare. This will be the first ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ to be viewed from earth in 35 years. It has been 150 years since this event has been able to be seen in the Americas.
During the early hours of Wednesday morning, Jan.31, is when the Eclipse occurs. So get up early on Wednesday and look low in the western sky to be able to watch this amazing event. The eclipse begins at 3:48 am; totality begins about 4:52 am and lasts until 6:05 am.
Using the energy of Gemstones
Inner Oasis carries a wide range of gemstones; they are indeed beautiful, however, our primary interest is their energy.
One of my personal favorites is Malachite – a stone that amplifies all energy (positive and negative), and is a powerful stone for protection, healing, and transformation.
You’ll often find me with stones in my pockets, handbag, on the window sills, and even in flower pots! Perhaps the most efficient way to utilize the energy of your gemstone is with a Crystal Grid. Grids are made by intentionally placing stones in a geometric pattern for the specific purpose of directing energy towards a goal.
Shown here is an Angel Communication Grid: a hexagon with a selenite pyramid as a keystone, two red jasper grounding stones, six sapphires and one moldavite. The Sapphires call upon the light energy of the Angelic Realm while the pyramid protects your subconscious from other connections. The grounding Red Jasper supports the manifestation of your intention to communicate with your Angels. created by James Goings, Jr., our Gemstone Expert.
My New Year of 2018 started out with a powerful reminder from the Divine Universe that when you leave yourself open to messages and answers, they do come through. Sometimes softly, sometimes loud and clear, and usually unexpected.
To back track a bit, we used to have a dog. She was with us for 7 years. Since my husband wasn’t, and still isn’t, a “dog person”, the fact that we had one was amazing! She came into our family at the right time and was the right dog.
Now I find myself in the position to possibly have another dog. I woke up on Tuesday January 2nd thinking about this possibility, and all the things that might not work, and why I wanted a dog etc. I decided that if I’m supposed to have one, the right dog will come into my life with no effort, just like the many cats we have had over the years.
Imagine my surprise when that same afternoon there was a knock at the door and standing there were two of the guys working on the road near my house, and they were holding this shivering little dog wearing a Christmas sweater!! My two thoughts at that exact moment were “NO WAY did the Universe answer that fast and obvious” and “your assignment, if you choose to accept it…” They had found the dog out running around all of their big equipment in the construction area and thought it might have mine.
I took the dog, checked for a collar (there wasn’t one), made it warm and comfy, and called YC Pet Heroes (they are a great group that help with lost & found pets and are on Face Book) to come and scan the dog for a chip. There wasn’t one. Since it wasn’t a problem for me to keep the dog for a bit, she was left with me and we got started trying to find the owner.
By Wednesday afternoon there had been no word from an owner and I was contemplating whether or not I wanted to keep this dog. I had to return some mis-delivered mail to a house at the top of the ul-de-sac across the street and I asked if they knew of anyone that had a small dog like the one that had been found. They didn’t, but suggested calling Homeward Bound. I made that call as soon as I got home and explained about the found dog. Within 15 minutes they had called back saying they had just been contacted by someone who had lost a dog that sounded like the one I was caring for. It was the dog’s owner and she came over right away to pick up her dog.
This series of events could have played out a couple of different ways. As it is, on one level it was a taste of what having a dog again would be like. On another level it was that powerful reminder that the Universe does answer and provide. Maybe not always in the way or at the time that we want or expect it to, but keep an open mind and be flexible if the answer you get doesn’t exactly fit your expectations.
I would still like a dog. This wasn’t the right time nor do I think it was the right dog, but I believe I was shown there is one somewhere in my future.
Blessings and Happy New Year to you all. Be on the look out for synchronicity in your life!

The Holidays and all of their hustle and bustle are almost upon us. Now is a wonderful time to take a moment or two to contemplate this particular time of year before getting to busy. I read an article that explained this idea so well. I hope you enjoy the excerpt I have included here.
Take time to pause, and honour the line of people who came before you, if that feels right.
It’s a magical time, the light finally giving in to the dark. We are entering the darkest, coldest phase of the year. Autumn is ending, winter is beginning. Knowing that we need the dark as much as the light – in all things – we can choose to embrace it wholeheartedly. The light will return in Spring, and for now, we can welcome the opportunity to journey inwards a while, carving out time to hibernate, and to rest, as our modern lives plough on relentlessly, as our Earth slows and cools. Our Earth, tipping herself into balance. We can tip, too.
Cycles, always – all ways.
Trees are burying their final leaves, and we had our first frost yesterday. I woke to the early morning to the hum of a car engine, heaters on. So longing are we for warmth and light that we have even changed the clocks again. An extra hour of light in the morning, for a week or two. The cycles of the natural world peeking in to our lives unseen, almost.
The joy of it is – even though we spend much of the year feeling cold about the return of winter – we do greet it with great celebration, candles lit for ancestors across cultures, and – in England – an evening of frosty bonfires with loved ones this week, we do mark the beginning of winter with huge celebration, with fire, and with light. Quite the party, really.
So, here’s a welcome to all souls, a welcome to this opportunity to remember and honour our roots. Light a candle and let it burn, if that feels right, and pause a while. And here’s a welcome to winter. Welcome to all the rich darkness you bring, time for reflection, curling up, and excuses to be cosy. Light a fire, and allow the embers to warm the bones that have carried you this year.”
So with renewed warmth and spirit, we move forward into celebrating our various holiday traditions.
Well, I had started a blog to post about the upcoming eclipse, but I didn’t finish it.
So here we are, riding that eclipse energy of change right up to the change of seasons and the upcoming Autumnal Equinox. “The equinox occurs on Friday Sept. 22nd at 1:02 pm (West Coast). The sun will rise and set exactly in the east and west. It will move in a laser-straight line across the sky. It’s a time of precision and a good time to contemplate the idea of equality.”*
Fall has always been my favorite season. The changing colors are glorious! The busy-ness of summer slows down, the very air smells different and turns cool and crisp, the harvest of the gardens, fields and orchards comes to a celebratory finish.
Our energies shift as well. We begin to turn inwards, we start to think of cozy places indoors and lovely warm foods – soups, stews, baked apples, warm bread.
In the shop we have a versatile Food Mill and a Vegetable Chopper to help with your preserving and cooking. Some wonderful Gardener’s Salve to refresh your hands after harvesting or cleaning up your yard. And beautiful stone or salt candle holders to warm your home.
