Mystique Stone Magic - The Spirit Within

 Crystal Lore and History
Native American legend believes there are 13 ancient crystal skulls that are the size of human skulls and are said to have spoken or sang. These skulls contain important information about the origin, purpose and destiny of mankind. It is said that this information is vital to the survival of this planet and the human race. This legend has been handed down through generations of many different Native American tribes over thousands of years including the Mayan, Aztec, Pueblo, Navajo, Cherokee, and Seneca. The Cherokee version of this legend says that there are 12 planets in the cosmos that are inhabited by human beings and that there is one crystal skull for each planet. The thirteenth skull has information that is vital to all the others. The one belief that is common to all tribes is that the human race must be morally and spiritually ready before the information contained within the crystal skulls is made available.

Diamond: A Mini Novella ~ Part 4

Diamond inched closer to Soledad. "Master, she is the daughter of Sol, the Keeper of the Sun, and Cielo, the Keeper of the Sky."

Soledad snorted. "She has told me the name of her parents. Her bloodline makes no difference to me, they will all be dead before sunrise. Unless you want to bare their same fate you will stand aside, fairy."

"But the prophecy," Diamond whispered. "It is told to all fairies that one day a daughter of the Keeper of the Sky will be killed in an act of noble sacrifice, which will cause the sky to cry for years. The sky's tears will flood the earth perishing all land dwellers."

"I do not believe in the tales and nonsense of fairies' bedtime stories. Now stand aside, Diamond!" Soledad bared his teeth.

"Please, brave fairy," said Crystal gently, "go before you get hurt and give my message to my parents. I have sealed my fate." She turned to Soledad. "I will play your game, but I insist you give me a fair start."

Diamond raised an eyebrow at the girl. The corner of her lip turned slightly upward as Diamond heard her voice in his head. "Go, fairy, warn my parents. I will keep Soledad busy as long as I can. Keep them safe until Mother Earth has returned. She will know what to do."
With that Diamond hurried toward the town.

Will post the conclusion to Diamond on May 1st

Native American Animal Symbol

Native American Animal Symbol
Apr 20 – May 20
Take charge, adapt, overcome – this is the Beaver motto. Mostly business, the Beaver is gets the job at hand done with maximum efficiency and aplomb. Strategic, and cunning the Beaver is a force to be reckoned with in matters of business and combat. One might also think twice about engaging the Beaver in a match of wits – as his/her mental acuity is razor sharp. The Beaver has everything going for him/her – however tendencies toward "my way or the highway" get them in trouble. Yes, they are usually right, but the bearer of this Native American animal symbol may need to work on tact. In a nurturing environment the Beaver can be compassionate, generous, helpful, and loyal. Left to his/her own devices the Beaver can be nervous, cowardly, possessive, arrogant, and over-demanding.

Diamond: A Mini Novella ~ Part 3

Part 1 -

Part 2 -

Coming to his senses, Diamond chased the girl. "Wait, you mustn't do this!" he called after her.

If she heard him, she didn't heed his warning, running so fast he was barely able to keep up. Then she stopped suddenly, giving Diamond only a moment to fly up before colliding with her back. He turned to talk some sense into her when he caught sight of the object that made her freeze her sprint. Soledad loomed over her.

"Girl!" Soledad growled and slapped the ground with his large paw. "Red is forbidden in my realm. Do you wish to die for that is the path you have chosen by coming here."

"They call me Crystal, daughter of Sol and Cielo, I am here to offer myself to you in exchange for the safety of our tomato crop. My father is refusing to let the sun set, so you cannot hunt and will therefore never see our red tomatoes."

Soledad laughed. "Your father is as foolish as you. There are consequences to obstructing the natural ways of life. I will eat you now, then hunt your father. Let his death be a warning to the next Keeper of the Sun. I will be obeyed."

Diamond cleared his throat. "Master Soledad, might we come to an understanding without bloodshed? This young Daughter of Eve was willing to sacrifice her life not only for the sun, but for your livelihood. You would starve to death if the sun never set. She is saving your life as well as her people's welfare. Perhaps you show her mercy if they agree to pick all the red tomatoes before sun down?"

"Fairy you forget your place." Soledad snapped at Diamond before baring his teeth at Crystal. "This disobedience will not be tolerated. Tonight I will hunt twice. Do you want to run? We'll make a sport out of it." His eyes narrowed. "Either way, you die tonight."

MYSTIQUE - STONE MAGIC (The Spirit Within)

Crystal  Lore & History

Lore has it that there were some survivors of Atlantis and that they were able to perpetuate the knowledge and power of crystals to the root civilizations of Egypt, South America, and Tibet. It is said that the Great Pyramid of Egypt was capped with a giant crystal to assist in grounding and utilization of cosmic force. As these original civilizations rose and fell, much of the knowledge and power of the crystal was all but lost.

Diamond: A Mini Novella ~ Part 2

Part 1 ~

Diamond forced a smile. "I see someone has filled your head with nonsense, Child of Eve. The only one who is fated to be doomed is you, if you don't hide your scarlet frock. Soledad cannot stand the sight of the color of red."

"I am here to offer myself up as sacrifice so Soledad will leave the tomato crop alone. We can no longer pick them while green, they are too bitter. The merchants have refused to buy our bitter fruit. My father is desperate and has threatened to..."

"I will just paint your tomatoes purple, problem solved." Diamond brushed his hands together.

"You didn't let me finish, my father is the keeper of the sun. He is threatening to never let the sun set, so Soledad cannot hunt and will never see the red tomatoes."

"But he cannot do that! What of the nightingale and the opossum? The Moon Fairies and the Dragon Fruit flower?" Diamond paced back and forth. "Have you gone to Mother Earth? Has she any advice?"

"She is on holiday with the Father Spirit. I have sent a message with the wind, but time is not on our side. Father has said tonight is the last night he'll let the sun set."

The girl gathered her skirt. "I must find Soledad. I must give him my life in return for the safety of the crops. It is the only way. Please tell my father what I have done, so that all will be right." She turned to run.

"But I don't even know what they call you, Child of Eve," he shouted.

"They call me Crystal, daughter of Sol and Cielo." Then she disappeared into dark forest.

Diamond watched the girl, too stunned to move. The prophecy was coming true.

Thoughts from Cathy

The Cross 
By Cathy Collar

The Cross; there it stands
Bold and brave.
The symbol of a miracle worker
Who made man out of clay.
Through six suns and six moons
The earth he carefully made.
And rested a well earned rest,
On the seventh day.

The Cross; stands there reminding me
Of all the things he did.
He sent a son from heaven above
To live as we all live.
He taught us of goodness and kindness
And our sins he did forgive.
And what did we repay him with
But cruelty, all the time he lived.

The Cross; reminds me most of all
Of Jesus being crucified.
After all he did, all he helped
And oh how hard he tried,
To teach us of the Lord above
Who had given us all life.
And his repay for all he did,
Was to be crucified.

The Cross; now is a symbol
Of the holiness in this land.
Where almost everyone worships
The man whose giant hand.
Carved this world into what is today,
But I still don’t  understand.
Why it took us all so long to find,
The Holy King Of Man.

Diamond: A Mini Novella ~ Part 1

Diamond gazed down at the girl laying in the path. The sun was setting and Soledad would soon be on the prowl. Usually, Soledad wouldn't bother with a skinny girl, he preferred pray with more meat, but she was draped in a scarlet satin gown. Between the girl's alabaster skin and raven hair, all Soledad would see was red.

Diamond learned the hard way that Soledad hated the color red after painting the roses red on Soledad's favorite bush. Soledad had thrashed the bush apart and Diamond had barely escaped with his life. Soledad had made it very clear all colors were acceptable in his forest, save the color red.

But, how to wake the girl when Diamond was no bigger than her finger? Spreading his iridescent wings he coasted to the where the girl lay.

"Excuse me," he said, tugging on the girl's hand. She didn't stir.

Diamond rubbed his chin. There had to be a way to wake this Child of Eve before Soledad caught sight of her. An idea popped into his head, she wouldn't like it, but no time could be wasted.

Rubbing his hands together Diamond chanted a prayer, "Dear Mother Earth, my situation's dire. Please give to me the power of fire."

Soon a small ember began to glow in the palm of his hand and quickly grew into a small flame. Diamond gently held the fire under the girl's dainty wrist. "Painful, but quick," he thought.

And he was right, upon seconds of feeling the heat the girl bolted up, knocking Diamond into a nearby bush. He was thankful it was his peonies bush that was quick to catch him within her soft leaves and not one of his beloved roses.

Straightening his clothes and wiping off his wings, he flew to the girl. "I do apologize, my lady, but I had to wake you. You must hide before Soledad begins his nightly hunt."

"But it is because of Soledad that I am here. I must face him or we are all doomed."

MYSTIQUE - STONE MAGIC (The Spirit Within)

  Crystal Lore & Legend

Quartz crystal has been around for a very long time. How long, no one knows for sure. We do know that crystals were formed in this Earth and suggest the mineral evolution of the planet. Their very being expresses the unity of the four ancient elements.
 Part 1
 It is said that crystals and stones have been utilized for many purposes for over 100,000 years. The oldest legends of crystal power take us back to the ancient civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria. It is believed that these people were of an advanced race that could harness and channel the power of crystals. These civilizations would use crystals as beacons of light that would serve as telepathic communications with their forefathers. The power of crystals was also used for many physical and practical purposes. It is believed that these civilizations were destroyed because trust of the sacred knowledge and power of these crystals was abused. However, before Atlantis was completely destroyed, some of the "wise ones" that had not abused this trust were able to program the knowledge that was needed for the human race to survive into crystals. Specific information was programmed into different types of crystals so that when the time was right, they would surface on this planet.
