M There’s Power in the OONRISE! Whoo Hoo! I’ve been flying higher than a kite and it has nothing to do with illegal or illicit substances! No, I’ve just been playing around with some new friends of mine – Crystals. I recently had the opportunity to become guardian for a group of new stones – rather, they picked me and I just serendipitously showed up to claim them. This latest group is very spirited, powerful and conscious. The stones just showed up and they are bright and animated like the Crystal children of the early 2000s. When we got home, I cleansed, meditated and claimed them – as much as that is possible with any sentient species – and then decided it was time to let my hair down and just have some fun. Their energy is light, playful and they just seem to shimmer with crystalline sparkles whenever I pick one up and hold it in my hand. They insist they are here to help me re-learn how to play. Me – an adult? Yes, that’s the message, here. They came to let us know that adult humans have gotten too uptight. We need to learn how to let go and just return to the state of wonder that a young child has. They say that laughter cures the human soul, but we don’t laugh enough. And as you know, playing is a great opportunity to create laughter. Maybe we should all take a bit out of our hectic schedules to re-learn how to break the rules. Get whatever crystals out that you own, clear them and ask them if they want to have a day of fun. Play doesn’t have to cost a lot. Throw on a pair of your favorite muck-about clothes, or maybe even your jammies. Let yourself explore your creative side. There are no rules, so color outside the lines. Laugh at ourselves and in concert with others who are learning to play again. Play is good for retraining your brain and for problem solving. It cuts down on stress, increases your good endorphins and lowers blood pressure. Try it out and have fun! Blessings! Cheryl
