“Soul Searching”
by Jason David Keith

     Over the past three weeks, I have set myself to write about the next stone on my list, which happens to be Amethyst. I began putting together my ideas, along with a story on my history with the stone. I’m not completely sure exactly what occurred, but it wasn’t long after I started working with Amethyst, that I was faced with a string of incidents that I can only look back and be grateful for. At one moment, it felt like my life was falling apart, and the people  I had surrounded myself with, seemed to be conflicted, moody, distracted, or ready to move on to bigger and better things. However, I can’t deny the amazing things that occurred during this time that brightens my outlook on the future. Although I may not go into great detail about my experiences, it seems that what I went through was not only happening to me, but to others as well, and interestingly, it was occurring at the exact same time. In the past, I used to get depressed, often retreating at the first sign of “drama”, but I’ve matured a lot over the years and now I make attempts to stay grounded, patient and loving for whatever lands on my path. I’m starting to recognize “life” as a life-long journey of learning experience. Though some of us have more life experience than others, it doesn’t necessarily make us wiser. Sometimes the lessons we learn cause us damage in the future, but that’s the beauty of living life. Lessons we learn today will be considered antiquated and obscure tomorrow, so this means what we learn is constantly evolving. A simple way of looking at evolution, is change, and if you looked at our history, you will see that it proves that change is inevitable for our planet. The only guarantee in life is that tomorrow will be different, and that is a beautiful thing! 

     Because I feel like many of us are soul searching at the moment, I created a new grid I call “Cosmic Light, Cosmic Wisdom” to attract guidance and Light from the Universe. This powerful crystal grid features Moldavites, Tibetan Tektite, Libyan Gold Tektites and Indochina Tektites from Vietnam. To go with this grid, I am including a beautifully written affirmation written by my friend Scott Wheeler called “Fearless Embrace”.  I hope the Light from this Grid and affirmation brings you all guidance, love, Light and peace! Namaste!

Light and Love, 
Jason David Keith

“Fearless Embrace”
by Scott Wheeler

"No longer living in the past, 
love surrounds my steps at last.
The future is yet unrevealed, 
but to my true self I am no longer concealed.
The pathway I’m walking on no longer confined,
my steps not constricted and entwined.
My way forward becomes crystal clear, 
I embrace all that serves me without fear.”

Beautiful Distractions
by Jason David Keith

As a rock-hound living in Arizona, I feel exceptionally lucky to experience a variety of gem-shows around the state. When January rolls around, it feels like Christmas all over again, with the gem shows kicking off in Quartzsite, then the Flagg Gem and Mineral Show in Mesa, AZ and quickly followed up by biggest of all the shows which happens in Tucson. From an outsider’s perspective, its easy to call it the “Tucson Gem and Mineral Show”, but its not just one gem show, but several happening all at once, all over the city! Each time I visit these shows, it takes me a while to ground and let go of the energy I accumulated handling so many stones. I love these types of distractions, because there is so much natural beauty that comes from the Earth! 

I love crystals, and I often find myself carrying, wearing and meditating with them when I feel overwhelmed by life’s troubles. I believe that gazing at something beautiful helps me feel better when I am struggling to maintain a positive focus. Often, in my dark moments, I’ll play with a highly refractive stone, such as Labradorite, Blue Moonstone, or Sunstone and soon after, I find those feelings vanish or leave. Another one of my favorites to use when I’m moody, is Auralite-23, as I feel this stone inspires and instills hope. I say all of this, because I’ve noticed a trend over the past couple of weeks: It looks like many of us are working through some life-altering experiences. To some degree, the energy feels a little cooped up, and maybe even a little bored. This motivated me to create a crystal grid, one that helped ground Cosmic Light, using Auralite-23, Libyan Gold Tektite, Noble Shungite and Clear Quartz. I hope the Light emitted from the stones in this grid helps distract everyone of you for even a moment! :) 

When I experience life challenges, I admit that it can be difficult to stop and be silent for a reflective moment, but when I do, I always seem to find the answers I need, or in worst case scenarios, I come back at it with a refreshed or renewed focus. Right now is a perfect time to stop and meditate, to reflect positively on oneself and to allow our inner-voices to guide us. Through meditation we can ground Cosmic Light that we can utilize to help us purify the negative energy we create, and help us plant our feet firmly on the ground. This practice helps us find ourselves, and helps us “see” where we are.

Matching the energy of this “Light Portal” crystal grid, I found this beautiful invocation by Hagen Hasselbalch from the book Earth Prayers, which I hope we can all use to heal and stabilize nervous, frantic energy for the good of everyone, everywhere. I am sending lots of good thoughts and wishes to all my close friends and family, and offer lots of Light and Love on a global scale. 

I look forward to submitting a new post next week! 

Light and Love,
Jason David Keith

An Even Deeper Thought

Happiness is a joyful experience. But it is, firstly, a choice! But there’s a big catch in that.
It’s easy to FIND yourself in a place that makes you happy. It’s second easiest to try to MAKE yourself happy when you find yourself in unhappy situations. It is the HARDEST, however, to FIND yourself in a situation that SHOULD make you happy, REALIZE that you’re NOT, and then do the INNER WORK to find out WHY!!
Yes, happiness is a choice, but it’s not as simple as yes or no. Happiness takes a commitment to understanding your internal emotional barometer and following it. Happiness is a choice to be honest with yourself when you are not happy.
The choice isn’t so much happiness as much as it is awareness. Happiness is the result of the choice.
So next time you hear something like “choose happiness”, know what it means. Know what it would mean for you… In order for you to be ABLE to choose happiness, what would you need?? —Scott Wheeler

Today’s Thought

Once you become present to life, life becomes about making choices. Choices like being happy in the experience you are having right now. How many people, including yourself, do you think you could hear saying that they were fully content in their life situations right now?

I believe in God - god is that force that, once we let go, takes us past the point of what we can dream into experiences and situations we could have never thought of ourselves. God brings wonder.

But, I also believe in God in everything, not just in Church Sunday morning… If you can see God in the wonder-experiences, where there is no way that you could have manifested that crazy awesomeness yourself (the miracles), then what on earth makes you think you ever manifested any of the other things??

Honestly, your thoughts just aren’t that powerful.

The Magic of Wonder
By Jason David Keith

When I look at my collection of stones, it seems that my favorite among them have inclusions, cracks and natural imperfections. I usually seek out minerals that grab my eye, specimens that look like they have worlds suspended within, mysterious pieces that invoke wonder. Mystic Merlinite is one of these, as many pieces of Mystic Merlinite resemble a starry night, with bright golden “stars” shining through a smoky indigo “space”, it makes me think of the night sky and it makes me want to go out and star gaze. Other pieces look like a brewing storm, clashing full of rage, with little bits of golden light poking through dark clouds. Regardless of how I perceive them, this much is true: many pieces of Mystic Merlinite have bright golden crystals that gleam through blue and black. I love that these stones make me imagine so many wonders!

I feel like “wonder” is key to learning and understanding the Universe, the secrets of magic and the mysteries of our existence. Wonder helps us stop and appreciate the details, no matter how big or how small, and I feel like wonder shows us how we are part of an amazing living organism, a breathing, awe inspiring eco-system we know as “Home”! In the spirit of Wonder, I found this amazing Chinook Psalter, a beautiful invocation full of blessings for everything, and everyone. (I LOVE IT, and I love using it with Mystic Merlinite!) I hope you have an amazing week full of wondrous experiences! 

Light and Love, 
Jason David Keith

******************

Chinook Psalter: 

“Blessing of galaxies, blessing of stars:
Great stars, small stars, red stars, blue ones.
Blessing of nebula, blessing of supernova,
Planets, satellites, asteroids, comets.
Blessing of our sun and moon, blessing of our earth,
Oceans, rivers, continents, mountain ranges
Blessing of wind and cloud, blessing of rain,
Fog bank, snowdrift, lightning and thunder.
Bless the wisdom of the holy one above us.
Bless the truth of the holy one beneath us.
Bless the love of the holy one within us.
Blessing of green plants, blessing of forests:
Cedar, douglas fir, swordfern, salal bush
Blessing of fish and birds, blessing of mammals.
Salmon, eagle, cougar, and mountain goat.
May all mankind likewise offer blessing:
Old women, young women, wise men and foolish
Blessing of youthfulness, blessing of children
Big boys. little boys, big girls and little ones.
Bless the wisdom of the holy one above us;
Bless the truth of the holy one beneath us,
Bless the love of the holy one within us.”

As I’m catching up on all my messages, and reading through all the Facebook and Tumblr updates and Tweets, the message is coming across clear: everyone is feeling blue. When I feel down and depressed, I often find that I am not communicating, (or able to communicate) how it is that I am truly feeling with loved ones. I wonder if this happens to me, because I haven’t communicated to myself, exactly why I am feeling this way? I never question why I am feeling low, however, because I know that I’m working through some-“thing” that will help me grow. You’ll often find crystals on me, but especially so when I am faced with challenges. One stone that I love to use to help me overcome these moments of introspection is Mystic Merlinite.  Mystic Merlinite is the stone I am featuring this week, and I would love to read from all our readers, what you think of this rather cheerful power stone! I hope you all have a lovely week! 

Light and Love,
Jason David Keith

Mystic Merlinite
by Jason David Keith

Mystic Merlinite is an amazing stone, imbued with cosmic power. The stones that are currently in my care are rough, unpolished stones; their outer structure appears layered, jagged and sharp, causing some beautiful light refraction when you closely inspect them under a bright light. Initially, the stones appeared to me as blue and black, but there are many bright golden crystals nestled in with the black. The Blue is not a solid blue color either, displaying swirls of dark and light blue along with white and blue-gray. Mystic Merlinite is a Quartz-rich Gabbro from a remote island in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Madagascar and is made-up of a complex combination of minerals that include Feldspar, Chlorite, Serpentine, Muscovite, Pyroxene, Hercynite, and Magnetite in a blue/charcoal colored matrix; many pieces may also contain small amounts of Olivine, Chrome Garnet, Actinolite, and Biotite. A different stone, similar in mineral structure, found in Alaska and other volcanic parts of the world, is often sold under the trade name of “Black Granite” and has been used to create decorative headstones for centuries. With this information, I see a link between Gabbro stones and the realm of the dead, or the Realm of Spirit. I believe that Mystic Merlinite is fully connected to the world of Spirit, helping to thin the veil and aid with visually seeing and communicating with those that have crossed over. The vibration of the stone intensely attracts protective spirits, guides, Angels and Nature Spirits. It creates a protective energetic bubble around you, and uses a grounding cord to deflect and transmute negative energy. In my experience, the protective bubble strengthened as I connected more with the stone. 
     The frequency of Mystic Merlinite forces me to reflect; the energy of the stone puts me in a trance-like state, like I’m whisked away to some daydream to relive many childhood memories, and it’s powerful vibration helps me look at the past through a positive lens. It helps me look closely at the dark aspects of my life, the abuses I’ve had to endure or even the abuses that I created; it helps me see my self-hatred and lovingly shows me how my anger affects difficult circumstances. I believe that Mystic Merlinite comforts me as I face my demons head on, often reminding me of the strength I gained living through a difficult past. I feel like Mystic Merlinite shines a Light through the darkest of circumstances, the Light attracting my spirit guides for protection, support and guidance. Mystic Merlinite constantly reminds me that I have all the knowledge I need for my own survival and happiness, its just a matter of finding those memories and allowing the answers to surface. 
     In my meditations with Mystic Merlinite, I saw it as a stone of forgiveness, especially self-forgiveness. I visually saw how it was important to forgive certain aspects of myself in order to accomplish certain types of goals and desires. Weight loss, overcoming drug and alcohol abuse, overcoming anger, overcoming depression and anxiety and even overcoming the difficulty in finding work or stability, these are all traits that require me to forgive, even of myself in order to heal and move forward. Mystic Merlinite invites us to reflect, to re-live through meditation and dreamwork, and empowers us to forgive ourselves. This forgiveness, translates into self love. I know that when I love myself, I discover happy experiences. Though the path may not be easy, I feel like Mystic Merlinite is the modern day grounding stone helping me through it to the end. 
     The coloration of Mystic Merlinite reminds me that life is not black or white, good or bad. It speaks of how there is a treasure to be found in the dark and it’s often our time in the dark that leads us to the Light. I also see it as a stone of gratitude, encouraging happiness and zest for life. Mystic Merlinite represents balance, patience, magic and wise joy. It is a stone that I use to heal the past so that I can live in the now, and it helps me see the future outcomes of the choices I make in the present.
     I use Mystic Merlinite to amplify my prayers, and to strengthen the power of affirmations I use on a daily basis. Combining it with its synergistic sister stone, Merlinite (Psilomelane with Quartz),  I feel overcome by its magical, grounding and intensely protective energies that overtake me. This combination makes me feel unafraid to be myself, as I am, and I believe these stones help me attract like-minded individuals. Meditating next to a grid made up of Merlinite and Mystic Merlinite opens a psychic portal where I can channel messages and study and learn the magic at the center of the Universe. With these two stones, my intuition is heightened, boosting visuals, impressions and the gut feeling that is only followed by validation. Its energy affects my root, solar plexus and third eye chakras, grounding, boosting and encouraging creative thinking and verbal communication. I see Mystic Merlinite as THE conflict resolution stone, and combined with Merlinite, I feel I can heal the past and brighten the present. I believe this combination will make you a believer in magic and the power of prayer, and open you to Universal Wisdom, Karmic Purification and  Deep Healing. - Jason David Keith 

Mystic Merlinite Speaks: “I call all who seek self-awareness and self-mastery to join me in bringing yourselves into fullness. You are all, in your potential, mystics and makers of magic. I stand as your teacher, encouraging your metamorphosis and awakening.” - Robert Simmons from Stones of the New Consciousness

Merlinite Affirmation: “I enter the realm of mysticism and magic for the sole purpose of furthering my spiritual growth and highest good.” - Naisha Ahsian from The Book of Stones

As I’m catching up on all my messages, and reading through all the Facebook and Tumblr updates and Tweets, the message is coming across clear: everyone is feeling blue. When I feel down and depressed, I often find that I am not communicating, (or able to communicate) how it is that I am truly feeling with loved ones. I wonder if this happens to me, because I haven’t communicated to myself, exactly why I am feeling this way? I never question why I am feeling low, however, because I know that I’m working through some-“thing” that will help me grow. You’ll often find crystals on me, but especially so when I am faced with challenges. One stone that I love to use to help me overcome these moments of introspection is Mystic Merlinite. Mystic Merlinite is the stone I am featuring this week, and I would love to read from all our readers, what you think of this rather cheerful power stone! I hope you all have a lovely week!

Light and Love,
Jason David Keith

Mystic Merlinite
by Jason David Keith

Mystic Merlinite is an amazing stone, imbued with cosmic power. The stones that are currently in my care are rough, unpolished stones; their outer structure appears layered, jagged and sharp, causing some beautiful light refraction when you closely inspect them under a bright light. Initially, the stones appeared to me as blue and black, but there are many bright golden crystals nestled in with the black. The Blue is not a solid blue color either, displaying swirls of dark and light blue along with white and blue-gray. Mystic Merlinite is a Quartz-rich Gabbro from a remote island in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Madagascar and is made-up of a complex combination of minerals that include Feldspar, Chlorite, Serpentine, Muscovite, Pyroxene, Hercynite, and Magnetite in a blue/charcoal colored matrix; many pieces may also contain small amounts of Olivine, Chrome Garnet, Actinolite, and Biotite. A different stone, similar in mineral structure, found in Alaska and other volcanic parts of the world, is often sold under the trade name of “Black Granite” and has been used to create decorative headstones for centuries. With this information, I see a link between Gabbro stones and the realm of the dead, or the Realm of Spirit. I believe that Mystic Merlinite is fully connected to the world of Spirit, helping to thin the veil and aid with visually seeing and communicating with those that have crossed over. The vibration of the stone intensely attracts protective spirits, guides, Angels and Nature Spirits. It creates a protective energetic bubble around you, and uses a grounding cord to deflect and transmute negative energy. In my experience, the protective bubble strengthened as I connected more with the stone.
The frequency of Mystic Merlinite forces me to reflect; the energy of the stone puts me in a trance-like state, like I’m whisked away to some daydream to relive many childhood memories, and it’s powerful vibration helps me look at the past through a positive lens. It helps me look closely at the dark aspects of my life, the abuses I’ve had to endure or even the abuses that I created; it helps me see my self-hatred and lovingly shows me how my anger affects difficult circumstances. I believe that Mystic Merlinite comforts me as I face my demons head on, often reminding me of the strength I gained living through a difficult past. I feel like Mystic Merlinite shines a Light through the darkest of circumstances, the Light attracting my spirit guides for protection, support and guidance. Mystic Merlinite constantly reminds me that I have all the knowledge I need for my own survival and happiness, its just a matter of finding those memories and allowing the answers to surface.
In my meditations with Mystic Merlinite, I saw it as a stone of forgiveness, especially self-forgiveness. I visually saw how it was important to forgive certain aspects of myself in order to accomplish certain types of goals and desires. Weight loss, overcoming drug and alcohol abuse, overcoming anger, overcoming depression and anxiety and even overcoming the difficulty in finding work or stability, these are all traits that require me to forgive, even of myself in order to heal and move forward. Mystic Merlinite invites us to reflect, to re-live through meditation and dreamwork, and empowers us to forgive ourselves. This forgiveness, translates into self love. I know that when I love myself, I discover happy experiences. Though the path may not be easy, I feel like Mystic Merlinite is the modern day grounding stone helping me through it to the end.
The coloration of Mystic Merlinite reminds me that life is not black or white, good or bad. It speaks of how there is a treasure to be found in the dark and it’s often our time in the dark that leads us to the Light. I also see it as a stone of gratitude, encouraging happiness and zest for life. Mystic Merlinite represents balance, patience, magic and wise joy. It is a stone that I use to heal the past so that I can live in the now, and it helps me see the future outcomes of the choices I make in the present.
I use Mystic Merlinite to amplify my prayers, and to strengthen the power of affirmations I use on a daily basis. Combining it with its synergistic sister stone, Merlinite (Psilomelane with Quartz), I feel overcome by its magical, grounding and intensely protective energies that overtake me. This combination makes me feel unafraid to be myself, as I am, and I believe these stones help me attract like-minded individuals. Meditating next to a grid made up of Merlinite and Mystic Merlinite opens a psychic portal where I can channel messages and study and learn the magic at the center of the Universe. With these two stones, my intuition is heightened, boosting visuals, impressions and the gut feeling that is only followed by validation. Its energy affects my root, solar plexus and third eye chakras, grounding, boosting and encouraging creative thinking and verbal communication. I see Mystic Merlinite as THE conflict resolution stone, and combined with Merlinite, I feel I can heal the past and brighten the present. I believe this combination will make you a believer in magic and the power of prayer, and open you to Universal Wisdom, Karmic Purification and Deep Healing. - Jason David Keith

Mystic Merlinite Speaks: “I call all who seek self-awareness and self-mastery to join me in bringing yourselves into fullness. You are all, in your potential, mystics and makers of magic. I stand as your teacher, encouraging your metamorphosis and awakening.” - Robert Simmons from Stones of the New Consciousness

Merlinite Affirmation: “I enter the realm of mysticism and magic for the sole purpose of furthering my spiritual growth and highest good.” - Naisha Ahsian from The Book of Stones

“Butterflies”
By Jason David Keith

Hello everyone! 

I am so glad that the crazy hectic holiday hustle is over! For me, things started just after Halloween, keeping me busy with the cleaning and preparation of my home to host for Thanksgiving, followed by a road trip to visit family over the winter break… During my long absence, I never quit thinking about my continuous work with the mineral world, more specifically about this page I started early last year. In my contemplation, I wondered how I would proceed with this page going into 2014… recognizing the amount of work it takes to post daily, I think this year, I will focus on weekly write-ups, (though, at this very moment, my intent will continue to be to post a lot.) The plan will be to change from Crystal of the Day (or daily post), to Crystal of the Week (or weekly post), with many minor posts in between that include crystals grids, crystal art (like my butterflies), and several prayers and affirmations. Personally, I feel like this will be a year for exponential growth (for myself, and all of us), and focusing on fewer stones will mean more time spent focused on meditation, networking and learning. Such changes will mean a new page name, (which will be announced very soon!) I am very excited to see where Spirit will take me this year, (in fact, I am getting butterflies thinking all about it!) Lets all work hard to make 2014 an incredible year!

Light and Love,
Jason David Keith

Crystals for Seasonal Affective Disorder
by Jason David Keith

Its hard for me to deny how much I’m affected by the changing of the seasons. About mid-July, every year, I feel a change stir in me which causes me to reflect on the year. As Winter approaches, I find myself yearning for the Sunlight and warmth I took for granted over the summer. It seems I do this more, late in the afternoon, lamenting the early Sunset each evening brings. This year, I’m making it a point to try a little harder, and I’m even thinking of my New Year’s Resolutions a little earlier than usual. Many of the goals in mind are typical, like weight-loss and financial goals, (the norm for most), but I’m also considering being more specific with my goals, like overcoming my habits of criticism for myself and others, learning to be more respectful of myself and others, and learning to be more accepting of myself and others. Ultimately, my goal is to live each day with positive intentions in mind, each day, in a sense, becoming a goal in its own right, and each small accomplishment, a big step towards bigger, long-term goals (like weight-loss). I can be my own worst judge, so I feel this planning will help me not be so tough on myself. It doesn’t mean that I won’t be strict with myself, but it does mean I can’t create a goal like losing weight, if I’m doing it ‘just because’ I feel low about my own appearance. I’m learning to love and appreciate myself, regardless of weight or other physical insecurities, so doing it positively and joyfully will be my biggest focus. 
     I always find that I am drawn to crystals most when I feel lonely, depressed, sad, angry or anxious. I know that when I feel this way, I am working on something, (even if I can’t tell what IT is.) I usually do what I can to keep a positive mind, and it feels like I work at it a little harder during this time of year. The season has started where most of us don’t want to escape the warmth of our homes (or blankets… especially on really chilling mornings!), so when I start to feel fatigued, I rely on crystals to help me get things done! I know from practice, that a little crystal energy can go a very long way, and my guides have helped me create a small list of crystals will help me combat the blues this year. Personally, I like to carry multiple stones with me everywhere I go, my favorite to carry each day being Moldavite for its powerful Cosmic Light it emits, which I feel comes from the Heart of the Universe. This year my guides are also recommending the use of copper minerals like Turquoise, Malachite, Shattuckite, Chrysocolla, Ajoite, and Quantum-Quattro Silica™. All of these stones, (alone or combined) help to heal both the physical and emotional heart as well as the heart and throat chakras. Working with these stones also helps us obtain a deep and intimate relationship with our spirit guides and our Earth Mother (and the Cosmos with the aid of Moldavite). Turquoise, Shattuckite, Ajoite and Chrysocolla are all stones of communication, so when I find myself in an environment full of miscommunication, bickering and arguing, I like to create crystal grids with these seven stones (Moldavite at the center,) to help me powerfully transform the tension in the air. Depending on the situation, I may place the crystal grid on top of affirmations I’ve handwritten on paper to help the energy stay focused. On most days, I carry one or two of these stones, as talismans that help purify and protect me and my energy throughout the day, and as tools I can use with my daily meditations, prayers, and affirmations. 
     Many times, when I pray or recite affirmations, I like to burn several sticks of incense, (“temple style”). I feel doing this helps my home smell (FANTASTICALLY) great, the aromatic smoke purifying all types of energy as it fills every room. In my own experience, I feel it also helps to practice a little Feng Shui. I believe this practice helps me be responsible for maintaining the energy that comes through my home. Though it can be a lot of work, I feel that doing it helps me keep my closets, cabinets, pantry and living spaces organized and clutter free, I have to admit that my home feels really good when its all said and done. 

Below, I reposted the “Heart of Cosmic Light” affirmation, which I like to recite when I feel bored, anxious, sad, angry, moody, or depressed.  It feel it helps me break away from negative circular thinking, and cleanses and clears tension in the air. I also love using it when I’m smudging to clear the energy in my home and work space. (I hope it works for many of you too!) 

I am sending lots of Light and Love to all my family and friends, and to all our readers! Lets all work together to make this winter, a beautiful and magical season!  

Light and Love, 
Jason David Keith

“The Heart of Cosmic Light Affirmation”
written by Jason David Keith

I am a vessel of Divine Fire,
the Nameless Light at the Heart of the Universe
the Light shines in My Heart
and illuminates all of my body, my mind, my thoughts and my environment
the Light makes me strong, and helps me feel courageous, 
instilling the spirit of a fearless warrior that stirs inside of me!
I pierce through darkness, and cut through hell!
I tear down the walls of captivity, and release myself from fear!
I let go of my cynicism, my cruelty, and all perceptions that cause pain and disunity, 
I release my anger, my frustration, and my bitterness 
I cleanse and clear my heart,
my mind, my body, my energy and my environment, of all negativity, from this world, from every dimension and all the astral planes, releasing it out to the Universe to be transmuted into positive and beneficial energy, for my highest good and the highest good of everyone and everything that exists
I fill my heart with compassion
I fill my mind with peace
I fill my body with vital energy
I fill my life with endless joy
and everyone I meet, everywhere I turn and go, 
I fill with Nameless Light! 

So Be It!
