truth is power

Please Have Respect

I’ve come across several posts concerning @annapantsu and @power-of-innocence and their Heathers Online Musical blog ( @heathers-online ). I see in the little chat bubbles that there are some very negative comments. You do realize that these two young individuals are putting an entire broadway musical, ONLINE, which costs so much money I’m sure for equipment and licenses and the such, right? Not only the money BUT THE TIME PEOPLE. Just please be respectful with your questions and comments. For me, an outsider looking in, it was truly irritating to read. I can’t imagine how they feel. Also, calm down with the questions. I’m not saying to not have them, but just know they will get to you and your concerns. If they don’t answer you, maybe just reread the FAQ, Archives, and Google Doc. If it still doesn’t answer your question, then just be patient. Please. Just have some basic respect for what these brilliant people are doing. They sure as hell did not have to bring us all together, but they did. They’re doing it and I admire them for it. 

P.S. If you don’t get the part, don’t get discouraged. It’s not a jab at you. It doesn’t mean you’re not talented or good enough. You are good enough! And you know that in the first place because you auditioned! Who knows something amazing could be coming your way and you don’t even know it. Just keep your head held high and smile. Keep working towards your dreams and don’t have any negativity towards those that do get the opportunity. All love.

This is Black Obsidian.

When volcanic lava comes in contact with water, it cools extremely quickly. The result is a shiny, glossy black stone that almost looks like black glass. This is Black Obsidian!

This is SUCH a powerful crystal. Black Obsidian is a protection stone in all senses of the word. This amazing crystal is said to form a type of shield against negativity. It blocks psychic attacks and helps draw out negative energy from the environment, keeping it away from you. (Because of this magnetic nature towards negative energy, you should cleanse your Obsidian regularly!)

Obsidian has a way of pulling out stress and tension… And it has a very strong pull! Because of this, sometimes when you first start working with this crystal you’ll be flooded with these negative emotions as they are brought to the surface to be dealt with before continuing. This stone might not be the first choice for a beginner for this reason.

It’s a stone of truth… Which means that it’s great for stimulating personal growth. It brings the user clarity, and is said to be a wonderful crystal for discovering who you really are.

Obsidian is great for cleansing spaces of negativity as well! That makes it a great choice for a home office or bedroom or sacred space… Anywhere that you want to remain free from negative energies.

When it comes to Chakra healing.. This powerful crystal responds very strongly to the Root Chakra. It’s extremely grounding and helps us dispel and absorb energies through our Root.

For you magic folk, Obsidian is said to be great for scrying and gazing. It’s also a great stone to have if you plan on making contact with the spirit world… because of its strong, protective nature.

Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.

Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.
