Power of Words…
I recently read a quote: “Words cast spells. That’s why it’s called “SPELLING”. Words are energy, choose them wisely.
Whoever said sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me…was, in my opinion, totally out of touch with human emotion. Some of us are more tough skinned than others and words from idiots don’t bother us. But some of us are sensitive beings whose confidence is easily shattered by a harsh or bullying discourse from peers. While I am blessed not to be one of them I certainly understand how words impact those glorious, sensitive, souls who struggle with balancing the sensory overload caused by human input.
If we could only edit our thoughts to be kinder, we would do so much less damage to those around us. In our current world many don’t give a rats assets to care. They leave soul destruction in the wake of their journey through the world each day. I cannot say I’m an angel, because I’ll use whatever words I feel meet the need of the moment, when I see or hear a bully taking on an innocent anywhere, anytime. I am not a crone you want to tangle with for any reason. However, while I try to remember the power of my “word spells”, usually don’t let go unless I believe I’m seeing evil incarnate spewing on the innocent.
My point is, always realize that words do have power over others in different ways. Choose your words wisely as they are conversations with the Universe and it will send Karma your way for the choices you’ve made…good or bad!
Found a good light heart-ed poem for emphasis on the power of words….
A fairy sung a song
beauty of those words
rivers start to flow
flowers start to grow
Just to hear that melody

“For everything there is a season…”Not to be confused with the song…
The summer in “The Crater” has been unusually different this year. We’ve had record rainy days and humidity that will melt candle wax. Yet it has been so green and lush one shouldn’t complain at all this beauty.
Here late in August I feel like we’ve already had autumn weather the last two days. Early for us. I haven’t heard reports on the wooly worms yet. That is a sign around here about how bad winter will be in the mountains. The fruits and vegetables at the farmers markets have been exceptional as well. I hate to play favorites to any season but fall…the smells, the colors, smoke from the fire places and all that comes with it are a marvel to me.
I always loved coming home and taking my children and my nieces and nephews to the park and letting them roll in the dead leaves. The natural smells and colors laying background to the joyful frolicking only children can produce.
Let us not forget it is important to explore the decay inherent in nature. Then the change of season comes and we explore the growth and new life aspects of cycles as well. There is a mythical presence in returning the soil to regeneration of all of nature. The decaying ground cover is an example of how all gardens should be tilled. Nature sets the scene for it all and most humans ignore it. There are lots of YouTube info sites now on lasagna gardening. All taken from the observations of the forest floor. I watch them often.
Anyway, I digress. Along with the change of season in nature we also each have our own seasons. These range from a dark night of the soul to seasons of joyful abundance in all areas of our lives. Depending on our outlook (remember, form follows thought). Soooo, lets start today with a beautiful affirmation like….I am now enjoying a season of joy and abundance. The money, the people and the resources I need are now flowing in my life. Don’t let anything or anyone including your resident Drama Queens change that thought. Surround yourself with only with the people who support you and encourage your creativity and love you just the way you are….I know the Cronistas do. Love and light. Namaste, the Queen Cronista
Weeds in your Garden
I mention with passion and redundancy the FACT that “…form follows thought!”. Our mind is a garden of what ever we make it. If we focus on negative thoughts day in and day out then the weeds of negativity become thick and hard to extract.
If we plant our seeds with optimistic delight and water with a flow of positive energy our garden will never have to fear being overcome with the ghastly weeds that infect so many gardens. Look on the bright side, only see the beautiful blooms that are coming through your positive thought fertilization of your mind. Picture your table blessed with vases of blooms that you created through this discipline of thought.
Keep the negative people away from your auric field. They are the roots of the devil weed that can consume positive discipline. If all of this is just too “woo-woo” for you, then just remember your basic physics…”form follows thoughts”! What are you choosing to manifest in the world today? Namaste, The Queen Cronista
I DON’T DO GUILT…
All of the sitcoms show the Jewish mother, the Italian mother, the elder grandmother, the mothers and grandmothers of almost every culture as being the dreadful harbingers of guilt to their families. When I was in the rebellious stage of puberty and throughout my teen years, I always told my mother…”I’m your one child who does NOT do guilt… so take it elsewhere.” She never knew what to do with that.
In my observations, I notice that the human psyche is set to do guilt mostly through culture and societal fears. However, when it comes to guilt feelings we must distinguish between false guilt and true guilt. It is only normal to have feelings of guilt when we do something wrong. Most of us are raised this way. Let us call this… “true guilt”. However, what we must NOT let happen is the feeling of “false guilt” undermine us. This occurs when we are innocent of something yet feel guilty about it. This is possibly because other try to manipulate us or blame us. We will call this is “false guilt”.How do we tell? How do we raise our discernment to delineate the difference?
The major difference between false guilt and true guilt is their respective points of origins. False guilt has at least two possible points of origin: our own psyche; the passive-aggressive demons in our attic… as well as humans in our circle. The evil “the accuser” who relentlessly scourges us. “The Accuser” will bring to mind the most horrible thoughts of our sub-conscious. “The Accuser” will seek to cause us to focus on the negative rather than on forgiving ourselves, learning from our mistakes, letting go and moving on. It is a fitting name, as s/he can and does accuse us to our own minds and consciences.
Then there are those who convince themselves that they’re somehow on permanent leave before the Universe. They think that if they relentlessly perform at a superficial standard—they’ll earn the Universes acceptance and the Karma Cops won’t touch them. These are the lowest of hypocrites. They don’t do guilt because they believe they are so above the rest of us. Usually, they have no conscience, therefore…NO Guilt. The Karma Cops have the most fun with these I surmise.
True guilt, originates from one’s own spirit. The “true guilt” a light- being feels over his/her wrongdoing will be the Universe trying to put our spirit back on track. The Universe cannot allow us to habitually err, so it brings to the conviction of right-doing. The Universe recognizes “guilt,” but knows it is our feelings of “true guilt”. We feel guilty because we are, in fact, guilty. The spirit knows what is right at all times.
The cure for true guilt is not just a commitment to “do better.” It’s impossible to resolve issues of the past by thinking we will do better tomorrow. Getting rid of “true guilt” requires forgiveness of ourselves and others. Once we forgive ourselves and other of the transgressions, the result is a peace unsurpassed. We are back in stride with the Path the Universe made for us.
Having “False guilt” can result in depression, anxiety, and spiritual paralysis. Try to remember you are not the center of the Universe. False guilt happens when one is in an “all about me” frame of mind. It is us worrying about us and not our true light-worker roll in the Universe. Be all that you can be to your world. Don’t do false guilt. Namaste, the Queen Cronista
Lets Take a Nap
In many lower schools the children have nap time each day. As adults we look at that as frivolous at times. For many of us our minds won’t shut down or we think it’s ourselves indolent to nap. The chaos of the surrounding world also plays havoc on our nap-time. I have attended numerous seminars that tell us that a 20 minute meditation is as good as a one hour nap. However, I have to say now that I’ve learned to nap in my wisdom years, I find it eminently more satisfying.
I’m intentionally napping more because there are distressing things I need to process. I think, for me, I do it better after I come out of a good rem state. The need for rest and relaxation is often given a seat in the back pew of the church. We do not listen to our spirit telling us to be kinder and gentler with ourselves (read any study on sleep deprivation and see what I mean). Not a wonderful outcome in any of it.
Those of us with type A personalities may be destroying our spirit. We ignore the fundamental things the Universe built into our make up to prove to everyone we are wonder persons! We try to prove we are more industrious and productive than everyone else. This is usually at our own expense, in the long run. How wonderful life would be if we would listen to spirit and let our own well-being be a priority in our lives. In fact, …working smarter not harder…, is a decent concept if you include well being in that formula. I think humankind is the worst of the species at accepting the need for a good nap. I think, personally, there would be less madness and chaos in our world if we took napping seriously.

BLOOM WHERE YOU’RE PLANTED
He who does not serve God where he is would not serve God anywhere else.
The Grass is always greener, on the other side. We all know this to be “fake news”. The Universe laugh’s each new day at the world populous looking for something else, when what is intended, is in season right now, just the way the Universe planned it. We waste so much trying to buy the latest and greatest new popular gadget, fashion, diet, house, or whatever superficial junk is ringing our bell in the moment. That’s human nature, you say?
Well, one thing this old crone has learned is that it’s all junk, and at the end of each day all that matters is where your spirit lays its head. Do we land in the prosperity of the path given, or struggle trying to get to that which is not our path? The simple fact is, it is all up to our free will and choices. Pick the right path, and while it won’t be without twists and turns, it is never as bad as choosing poorly. The Karma Cops win every time!
Telling the young ones this fact, goes over like a turd in a punch bowl! It is truth but not “their” truth. Until we gain wisdom we never understand that there are specific consequences for each and every decision we make. Everyone finds out the hard way, or never get it, and keep on paying for it. The unenlightened will endure but the payback is big time.
So, continue to sparkle where you are. Grow your roots and the Universe will tell you when to replant to new fields; if needed. If you listen the transplanting will be effortless. We love you and need you just where you are.
