We’ll be working with a lot of mental and spiritual energy today with Archangel Zadkiel, the Archangel of forgiveness, mercy, and benevolence. He aids in forgiveness of self and others, emotional healing, compassion, freedom, finding lost objects, and memory.
Since we’re working with the mental and spiritual realm today, it’s no surprise that we’re invited to meditate on the color violet and use Amethyst throughout today.
Amethyst is a powerful detoxifier, healer, and cleanser, and one of its tasks is to help in overcoming addictions. With its healing properties, it balances out highs and lows, promoting emotional centering. Because of its association with the crown chakra, this stone is known to help in meditation (by turning thoughts away from the mundane into tranquility and deeper understanding) and connection to one’s Higher Self and the heavens. Amethyst, as one of the most spiritual stones, promotes love of the divine, giving insights into its true nature, and encouraging selflessness and spiritual wisdom.
At first, with all this talk of mental and spiritual meaning, it can be hard to see why Material Harvest comes as today’s main message from Archangel Zadkiel. That is, until I see where the violet is located in this card – surrounding the heart chakra. And is it just me or do the steps underneath the columns look like empty music staves?
Archangel Zadkiel is showing us that there is a way to balance physical goods with the love and light that comes from above. As humans, we are meant to live physically here on earth, and that it’s okay to attain and achieve a way of life that sustains and nourishes us and makes us happy. The balance comes in not focusing too much on one or the other, spirit versus physical need. They’re both necessary for us to have the rich experience we’re meant to experience while we’re alive. What I’m getting is that yes, he can work with us on forgiveness of self and others (and it’s recommended that many of us do so), but he wants us to also know and look beyond that picture, to know that in forgiveness, we are opening ourselves up to even more – love, abundance, joy, etc.
Work with Archangel Zadkiel and Amethyst, wear Violet clothing or jewelry, and open up heart and mind to all the Divine Love and Wisdom that bathes us each moment. Your “harvest” will multiply beyond measure, and your personal song/light/journey will be so rich, so exquisite, so awe-inspiring, that others will take note and follow your lead.
