Hello [first name], Spring is in the air and for many this is seen as a season for new beginnings. Also as a period to clean up and clean out; by clearing out the old and unwanted, we clear the space for fresh and interesting experiences, and allow new aspects of our selves to shine forth.

At this time we would like to encourage you to undertake “Your Spring Clean”, get in and clean the house and/or office from top to bottom. Clean out the cupboards, use a strong review like, - if you haven’t used a thing in the past 12 months and you honestly can’t see yourself using it in the next 12 months, then get rid of it. Sell it, donate it, give it away or just throw it out, but don’t put it back, you don’t want to hold on to the old, you want to make room for the new!  

Do this and the rewards will warrant the exercise, not only will your physical environment take on a whole new vibe, but so will your emotions and psychology, giving you a bright new approach to carry forward throughout the season.

Pay special attention to all of your crystals, cleansing and recharging them, especially those that have been silently holding space in grids established around the place. This is also a good opportunity to sit down and have a conversation with each of your crystals and also to check and see if any of them need to move on to a new home.

When you have finished the physical clean: do an energetic clean. This can be achieved by playing uplifting music, ringing a bell throughout the house, burning incense in each room, or by smudging. Another way is by sitting down quietly and deliberately setting an intention for the sort of space you want to occupy.



Last month I told the story of my horse Denny, stating that at times “we just have to acknowledge our limitations and hand such affairs over to the hands of God, Grace, Mother Nature or whomever. We just have to relax and trust that all will come out for the best, whatever that may be.” Sadly several days after writing, it was decided the kindest thing was to put him down as he was rapidly declining. At the very least our healing efforts provided exceptional palliative care and we hope a smooth transition.  

Denny will also be missed by a few clients who were encouraged to interact with him in a form of equine therapy and others who knew him as a mascot at our healing centre.


Healing Circle, our Spring event at Akasha Keep.

Perhaps the threat of thunder storms on the night of the 4th kept most of the expected participants at our Meditation, Shamanic Drum and Healing circle at home. Never the less the rain held off until we were finished and those present had a wonderful experience.

After smudging to cleanse and purify ourselves, we walked the perimeter of the circle, engaged in divesting negative thoughts and actions we had accumulated during the last quarter that no longer served our best interest.

Upon entering, time was spent contemplating our goals and aspirations for the new season. To open the circle the “Earth Prayer” was read out, along with “The Circle of Life. (These are reproduced below).  The chanting that followed was rousing and lifted the energy. We all engaged in a guided meditation were we followed the Sacred Flame to a place where we sat in the presence of the Elders who shared some of their wisdom with us.

Insights were shared as the talking stick was passed along. It was then time for each participant to experience the vibrational delights as native healing drums were engaged for their healing and beneficial effect. Just as this was completed the circle had to be quickly concluded as the first drops of rain were falling earthward. We all retired to cover and enjoyed supper and interesting conversation.

Inspirational Quote for the month.

Stone of the month.

For all those born in the month of September, your Birthstone is Sapphire.

Sapphire is a variety of corundum and comes in a variety of colours, (except red which is Ruby) with blue the most common. Sapphire means blue in Greek. The finest blue sapphires are a strong blue, and the ‘star sapphire’ is a very valued stone. Coloured sapphires are referred to as pink sapphires, yellow sapphires, violet sapphires, green sapphires, clear sapphires etc.

According to folklore, the Laws given to Moses were inscribed on Sapphire, making it a most sacred gemstone. The sapphire was one of the twelve stones on the Jewish high priest's breastplate, located on the second row in the middle.

As Sapphires represent divine favour, they are the gemstone of choice for royalty and high priests. The British Crown Jewels are full of large blue sapphires, the symbol of pure and wise rulers.

Sapphire is called the "Stone of Destiny". It is also the symbol of heaven and joyful devotion to God. Some believe this is where we got the term: "True Blue."

Sapphire has long symbolized truth, sincerity and faithfulness, and as such, it is an excellent choice for an engagement ring.

 Sapphire contributes to mental clarity and perception. This stone lets go of depression and spiritual confusion and stimulates concentration. It can promote financial rewards, prosperity and bring forth gifts of all kinds.

Sapphire is recognized as a “Wisdom Stone”. It draws protection and prophetic wisdom. It will attract and oversee one's divine destiny in life, instilling hope, faith and joy during the journey.

It opens the mind to beauty and intuition, and brings with it the hope of fulfilling your dreams and the desires of your heart. Sapphire can focus healing, loving energy upon anyone needing it.

Placed on the throat, Sapphire helps to release frustration and aids self expression.

Sapphire normalizes overactive body systems and regulates the glands. It will cure a sore throat, and heal the eyes. Treats blood disorders and alleviates excessive bleeding, strengthens veins and improves their elasticity.

The Use of Prayer is an effective means of communication with Great Spirit and serves to deliver an important message for us to head today.

These prayers were read out at our last “circle” and are reproduced here for the message they contain. The “Earth Prayer” is framed and sits in our healing centre were I walk past it regularly. The other night it caught my attention and I was drawn to read it out, and followed by “The Circle of Life´ they convey a compelling message.

Earth Prayer

Grandfather Sky, Grandmother Earth,
The four winds the four powers and the four directions
Mother, Father, God, all our guides, Guardian Angels, Ascended Masters,
Brotherhood of light and all that is of Divine Grace
We welcome you to our circle,
We ask that you join us so we can truly become one with all that is.
In so doing I ask that you nurture my Body, Heal my Mind,
and Transform my Soul
So that when its time for me to leave this plain and come to you
I leave with an open heart, clear mind and True Spirit.

The Circle of Life

Man has a poor understanding of life. He mistakes knowledge for wisdom.
He tries to unveil the secrets of our Father, the Great Spirit.
He attempts to impose his laws and ways on Mother Earth.
Even though he, himself, is a part of nature, he chooses to disregard and
ignore it for the sake of his own immediate gain.

But the laws of Nature are far stronger than those of Mankind.
Man must awake at last, and learn to understand how little time there
remains before he will become the cause of his own downfall.

And he has so much to learn. To learn to see with the heart.
He must learn to respect Mother Earth – She who has given life to everything;
To our Brothers and Sisters, the Animals and the Plants;
To the rivers, the Lakes, the Oceans, and the Winds.

He must realize that this Planet does not belong to him,
But he has to care for and maintain the delicate balance of Nature
For the sake of the wellbeing of our children and of all future generations.

It is the duty of Man to preserve the Earth and the Creation of Great Spirit.
Mankind being but a grain of sand in the Holy Circle which encloses all of Life.

Chief White Cloud

I salute the Light within your eyes where the whole universe dwells,
For when you are at the centre within you,
and I at that place within me,
We shall be one

Crystal Tips and Techniques.

This month we will take a look at using a simple crystal Grid to help manifest your desires, and how to use the same to promote healing. Go to your crystal collection and select 12 Clear Quartz points. Any size is OK, but pieces about 2 – 4 cms long are preferred. You will also need a large point or generator. If you don’t have these, they can be purchased at reputable crystal shops, or of course you can buy them here.  

Now that you have your crystals, cleanse them to de-programme and clear them of any unwanted influence. An easy way to do this is to wash them under running water.

Next create an alter for want of a better description, in an area that will not be in the way of day to day activities. An easy means to do this is to use a small round display table or a card table and cover it with an appealing cloth. You can also use a section of the floor if a table or similar is not available.

On top of this area, set a circle with your crystals. The diameter is largely determined by the space available, but about 15” or 35cms is OK. Place the 12 points evenly around the circumference with the points facing inwards.

For manifesting, it is now time to write out a description of the desired item or outcome on a piece of paper and place it in the centre, or a photograph may be employed. Now take the generator between your hands in prayer position and activate it for your purpose. This is done by stating words similar to these; “I ask that I be granted my desire for (and here state your written request or as represented by your photograph) and that it is manifested by (here state your date for achievement). My request is accompanied by my desire for the highest good for all and the understanding that this or better will be delivered. Amen.”

Now place it over your request and wait for the outcome. Of course keep this area clean and remember to dismantle when your desire is manifest.

For healing the process is the same, just the details are different.

Good vibrations and all the best,

Ron & Sue Windred.
