Hello there! How are you?! It’s Monday at about 9:14 am in my dimension as I start to write to you. Last night before bed I wrote this message in my Pink Spirit Book. It is about personal empowerment. It’s a reaccuring thing for me to remember that other people, places and things only have power over me if I GIVE THEM MY PERSONAL POWERLESSNESS. We teach others how to treat us.
The only power others have over us is the power we give to them!
“It doesn’t matter what “they” do. What matter is what I do. What I think,. What I feel. What I say. No one has the right to control what I think or how I feel. I am responsible for what I think and feel compels me to say and do. No one can make me think or feel anything unless I allow them this power. I am a Dimension. I am an World, I AM! There is none other like me in all the known Universes…nor shall one like me “be” again. EMPOWERMENT!!!”
It’s already started out to be a great morning. Do you remember the stone egg I was talking about yesterday that I felt such a strong connection to at the Holistic Fair? Well I inquired with the new friend I met, Jeana Brown (Mystic Egg) and she said it still needed a home. We’ve agreed on a price and next Monday we will have a new member to our stone and crystal family here. I don’t make such purchases very often, but the connection was just so special that Kyle encouraged me to go for it! Turns out the egg is formed of the stone Red Jasper.

Introduction to the Meaning and Uses of Jasper
The unique artistry of Jasper is that of Nature itself – golden sunshine, a nighttime sky, poppy fields or a deep green forest, desert sands, the undulating ocean, red rock canyons, sweeping mountains. Each stone is a masterpiece of the Creator, bold and primitive in style, solid and earthy in form, with a warm, harmonious energy that resonates with the primal self.
An elemental Earth stone, Jasper’s frequency is slow and constant, aligned with the electromagnetic energies of the planet. It enables one to be more present in the physical body and conscious of Nature and one’s surroundings. It encourages one to celebrate moments of isolation to absorb, reflect, and connect with these energies and enkindles an awareness of the spiritual connection we hold with all living things. [Simmons, XXIX, 215-219][Melody, 344-345]
Known as the “Supreme Nurturer,” Jasper is a stone of grounding and stability, providing comfort and security, strength and healing. Its presence balances the aura to a level of wholeness and peace, and acts as a reminder that one is not here on the physical plane simply for oneself, but to bring joy and substance to others. [Simmons, 215-219][Melody, 344-345][Hall, 154-155][Margherita, 505-507]
Historically, Jasper is traceable to all ancient peoples and civilizations. Worn by shamans, priests and kings, it was considered sacred and a powerful protection stone, for both the physical world and in the spiritual realm. Amulets of Jasper were carved by the Egyptians with symbols and inscriptions from the Book of the Dead and buried with mummified remains for safe passage in the after life. It was highly utilized in many cultures for engraving cylinder seals, signet rings, and special talismans depicting astrological and religious images. It was the twelfth stone in the Breastplate of the Jewish High Priest, and the apostle Peter is supposed to have derived his name from Jasper, the rock upon which Christ would build his church. To the medieval world and the Native Americans, Jasper was “the rain bringer” and highly regarded as a stone for dowsing. [Mella, 87-88][Melody, 344-345][Kunz, 90, 122, 226-229, 276][Fernie, 199]
Jasper is a dense, opaque, microcrystalline variety of Quartz. Fibrous and grainy varieties of Quartz are often grouped together and referred to as Chalcedony, though Jasper’s microcrystals are laid out in large, sugar-like grains rather than the fibrous layers of Chalcedony or Agate. It occurs in nodules or as fillings in fissures and may be found all over the world, in nearly every color. Jasper is colored by oxides of iron and known for its deep earthy tones of red, yellow, brown and green, sometimes in shades of blue or purple, and displays wonderful contrasts in its banding, inclusions, “pictures,” and small circular patterns. Its name is derived from the Greek iaspis, meaning “agate,” the Assyrian ashpu, and the Hebrew jashpeh. [www.mindat.org][Simmons, 215][Lecouteux, 177][Megemont, 100][Fernie, 173]
There is a wide variety of Jaspers, characterized by color, form, and similarities to places or animals found in nature. Many are named for the regions where they are mined; others are named by those who discovered them. Though far too extensive to cover here, we will mention a few of the more popular and familiar Jaspers, some with their own pages and additional metaphysical properties. Multi-colored Jasper carries the properties of its dominant color, or colors, while still drawing energies from its subtle hues.
- Red Jasper is red to terracotta brown, sometimes mixed with other minerals. A stone of physical strength and energy, Red Jasper stimulates gently and steadily, enhancing stamina and endurance, and increasing the amount of chi, or life force, in one’s aura. It is a stone of health and passion, and brings the courage to face unpleasant tasks and to rectify unjust situations. It provides vivid dream recall, and is a powerful stone for those who work with Earth energies to make a deep connection with Earth spirits and guardians of the leys and sacred sites. —–
My friend Mark House is always sharing interesting things on his personal page and on the Golden Age of Gans Facebook page. Yesterday he shared this Lab to Fab video and it’s only about a 21 min video about one example of how nanotechnology could transform manufacturing and materials we make and use for the future! Very interesting! The Documentary I plan to watch after I get done here but saw it and judging from all the views, it’s probably a decent video to share. I’m interested!
One thing Kyle and I talk about a lot is “reverse engineering” of things we’ve already made from harvested resources but could use again which I call repurposing. Could nanotech go in that direction as well but would it be too dangerous? Could you let loose nanobots capable of “deconstructing” anything they made contact with?! The stuff of science fiction right?! At a glance, on You tube, when I typed in reverse engineering I got mostly computer hacker stuff lol. What I am thinking of is taking a plastic bottle and finding a “green” way to return the bottle to a state it can be used to make something else. Specifically building materials for homes. I don’t understand why we are still building homes made of “sticks” and trees. Why we are insisting on taking depleting resources from the earth when we already have plenty of materials already available to us! We shouldn’t be wasting ANYTHING! It frustrates the heck out of me that every year there is a brand new gadget when all should be happening is software upgrades! Very wasteful and very inefficient and all because they want us to spend money on new products.
I believe everything we make and use (appliances, technology, housewares, furniture, homes etc.) should be able to be used again…repurposed after they have lost their purpose in their original form. Doesn’t nature do that already?!
Much love, light and hugs through the wires from my dimension to yours today!!! Love and be Loved.
