Cats, Crystals, and Community via the lovely Samantha Murdoch. And a link to the Lizian Events Community – off to investigate!
My CrystalCats community is growing!
Sometimes when I’m talking to someone about crystals I’m asked “Do any of them not work well together, or cancel each other out?” A good, relevant question which I always try to answer honestly, on the basis of my own personal experience if necessary.
The whole range of crystals with which we have been blessed by Mother Earth can be directed to help with a particular ailment or emotion – rather like asking a plumber to fix a burst pipe and a counsellor for relationship advice. Everybody has their allotted role to fill within the community, providing cohesion, continuity and a sense of belonging.
Ting and Lily… sweetly sleeping!
This is how I’ve found it works with crystals. For example, although Indigo Gabbro (also known as Mystic Merlinite) is a beautiful crystal with its sheen of Pyrite, it does make me over-emotional (no surprises there……

A lovely post from my dear friend Samantha Murdoch about Merlinite and Magical Cats!
Big clue in the title here… this crystal is another one that is very much of two worlds, a duality to its nature that can show both light and dark, spiritual and physical.
Not unsurprisingly, given its name, it has a strong association with astral travel back to Arthurian times (haven’t tried this… no central heating…)
But seriously, it is a very powerful crystal to use in bringing balance and harmony into your life, using information from lives long ago to redress the balance in your present life.
Merlininte can heal hurt from past lives which is affecting your present state of being and has often been used in shamanic and ritual magic. It encourages an awareness of the spiritual and can be used to develop psychic skills. Whilst opening the mind to the concept of unity between body and soul it will also bring the quality of acceptance, you…

You must see these beautiful gown designed by Resa with Goddess Athena and Tarot Graffiti in mind. It is so exquisite! And read about Aquileana’s wonderful Greek mythology (Athena) and Tarot posts. These two ladies are so talented and stir up an incredible collaborative storm!
Ever felt a fire to design an Art Gown for Goddess Athena, & cover it in Tarot graffiti?
If you have, I understand. We share a fascination for gowns, graffiti style street art, Tarot cards, and Greek Mythology.
It’s like 1 + 1 + 1 = 3. Art Gowns + Mythology + Tarot = ⭐️ Athena ⭐️ Graffiti Goddess.
Aquileana from “La Audacia de Aquiles”, (where I’ve learned a lot about mythology) and myself are Scorpio and Leo. Including both symbols was a must. Yes, they are Astrology symbols. Tarot incorporates them all.
On 120 ” wide silver satin, intended for curtains, I painted ATHENA in graffiti writing style. Acrylic paint mixed with a fabric medium was used, and heat set.
Then, the symbols were painted: Venus/Woman, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Pisces, Third Eye, The Queens of Wands and Swords, an Owl, Infinity, The Star & stars and Nine Pentacles on…

Luckily we were able to sit out in the warm sunshine for the second half of the writing day. On my … Continue reading A Magic Gate In The City of Cambridge
