Holy crow! Is it December already? I have let time get away from me, and now I’m going to make up for it!
I have resolved to list new items every week in my Etsy shop throughout the holidays and for the foreseeable future. In fact, I just got a huge lot of Aura Quartz, and charms and some truly spectacular gemstones and I’ve already started adding items as of today.
Let me show you some of the new things I am creating:
And that’s only the beginning! Look for new pretties made with TIger eye, Amethyst, Purple Copper Quartz (You have to see this stuff to believe it!) Malachite, Mother of Pearl and much more! If you are looking for something in particular, please don’t hesitate to ask – I LOVE a challenge!
Thanks for hanging on while I was unable to update here, but I promise, I’ll surprise and delight you with all the new items, and with much more frequent posts from now on out! Any questions? Just let me know and I’ll post some Q&A in the very near future.
I have recently made some new hand-painted dragon eye pendants! These beauties are available as keychains, necklaces and steampunk style chains with the ever-popular gears accenting the pieces.
How Hand-Painted Dragon Eyes are Made
I use optical glass cabochons and paint the backside in layer after layer of depth and color to create a realistic eye look. Since these are dragon eyes, they can be any color in the universe and they certainly do!
Black Light Reactive
The Dragon Eyes now available are all blacklight reactive, meaning that they change color and glow in ultraviolet light. Great for Clubbing, Kids gifts and infusing any outfit with some Dragon Style!
Don’t be fooled into buying the commercially made, “dragon eyes”. Those are made by gluing a printed eye onto a metal bezel and putting a
cheap plastic cover on it to simulate a real eye. Unfortunately, that kind of dragon eye looks flat and dull. Get one of my Dragon eyes for yourself or someone else today! Need a specific color combo? No problem, just message me and tell me what colors you would like!
I also have some new wands and other wooden items in Cosmic Delights right now, so please stop by and if it’s a Saturday from 1 to 6 PM, I’ll be doing readings at Cosmic that day so stop in and say “Hi!” Hope to see you all soon,
Thanks for visiting. Today I want to talk to you about meditation. I have some new facts, research and fantastic news to share. I will talk about how meditation can change our lives, improve our health and more! Regilar maditation can help release your true psyhic potential, aLet’s start with an easy way to learn more about how meditation can be used to banish much sorrow, depression, anxiety. Basically, this practice can help make you feel better than you do right now. The first thing I want to introduce you to is free, easy and fun to do. I’m talking about a series of videos on Youtube: Guided meditations with Dr. Bernie Siegel.
This man’s wisdom, humor, and colorfully serene meditations got me through some very dark times, and I can’t tell you how excited I was to find that he has many meditations on YouTube! This is a great way to get started in guided meditations if you don’t have much experience. You can also visit his websiteand find books, tapes, CDs and more from this amazing man.
Meditation and Neuroplasticity
The only thing required is a quiet place to meditate and a willingness to make your life better! Our brains’ Neuroplasticity enables us to actually make changes by using meditation. With meditation, we can strengthen and improve our brain in ways that can be life-changing and extremely beneficial not only to ourselves but to
Rebecca Gladding M.D., author of “You Are Not Your Brain” recently wrote: “The brain, and how we are able to mold it, is fascinating and nothing short of amazing.“
Meditation can take your mind worlds away, without you ever having to move.
According to a study published in the highly esteemed ‘PLOS Medicine’ journal, people with the most social relationships (both quantity & quality) are not only much happier but live 50%+ longer (!) than the rest of us.
Another study by UCLA Professor of Medicine Dr. Steve Cole showed that “feeling connected” to others strengthens immunity, while other studies have cited lower levels of anxiety and depression, higher self-esteem and empathy, the list goes on.
Since almost all humans have a tendency to obsess over the past and worry about the future (instead of simply being present), too much time alone can have real mental and physical health consequences. Isolation can be good for short periods of time, but the development of psychic and intuitive ability requires interaction with other humans. Networking with like-minded people is a terrific way to expand your horizons, learn new techniques and grow your intuitive potential.
Help for Hermits
Now all you cyber hermits out there (you know who you are) can get the benefits of being a social person, without necessarily having to actually interact with humans. This is especially good news for those of us who suffer Bipolar Depression, Social Anxiety and a host of other conditions that make us tend to keep to ourselves. Meditation, even guided meditation on YouTube can trick our mind into feeling connected with other humans and benefit from the experience every bit as much as naturally sociable people.
Dr. Newburg, now a bestselling author, writes “When people lose their sense of self [in meditation], feeling a sense of oneness, [this] results in a blurring of the boundary between self and others…[with] no sense of space or passage of time.“
By making us feel connected to everyone and everything, meditation cancels out the detrimental mental, emotional, and physical effects of loneliness and isolation, conditions that affect more than half of modern society.
While friends come and go, meditation will always be there for you. Especially if you can use mp3, tapes, CDs or yes, even YouTube as tools to help your life become more full and balanced.
Exploring Real Life Community
Now, friends, I am not telling you that you have to be alone or isolated, I’m only offering a helping hand to those people who prefer to keep their own company and eschew crowds and gatherings. By all means, when you are ready, do seek out resources in your community to explore, and I know you will be delighted by how just the experience of exploring new places and ideas can enrich your life!
For instance, here in Madison Wisconsin, the community is very fortunate to have a place such as Cosmic Delights.
Cosmic Delights is a retail store and Mystical event center on East Washington Avenue in Madison Wisconsin. Find them online at www.cosmicdelights.com as well as at festivals and events in the area. They offer a great selection of jewelry, crystals, gifts, oils, incense, singing bowls, tarot, stickers, magnets, buttons, CBDs and other goodies.

Google up “metaphysical stores”, mystical gift shop” or similar for your area and take a walk on the wild side, see some new things, experience some new and very beautiful friends from the Mineral Kingdom, have a reading done, and just plain have some fun, whenever you feel ready. If sharpening your psychic and intuitive Gifts is one of your goals, it can be helpful to look for groups in your area such a Psychics Unite. In this group, I have found a terrific group of people who are intelligent, open-minded and always interested in learning more about the unseen world. The Madison, Wi group has opened my eyes to many aspects of the psychic and spiritual realm that I just had not even thought much about. A terrific group, easy to share experiences with and learn from, I highly recommend looking for this or similar groups in your area,

Stone of the Month for August
I can’t wait to finally get time to work with the fantastic cache of Genuine, High-Quality Lapis Lazuli that I have recently acquired! Thus, Lapis Lazuli will be my Stone of the Month for August! Stay tuned for an in-depth exploration of this vibrant member of the Mineral Kingdom! Discover its many uses, healing properties, and fascinating history, along with some scientific facts about this “Royal” stone!
Thanks for visiting my site. I appreciate all comments and suggestions! Check back soon, because in coming weeks I will feature one crystal or gem, and explore the healing, helping benefits of each. Is there a stone or crystal that you would like to learn more about? Leave me a comment below and we’ll explore it together soon!
Many of us search all our lives for something that some never find. Especially in Modern Paganism, there are many faces of the Gods and Goddesses and making a strong Goddess Connection is one of the most powerful and rewarding experiences that can happen to anyone.
What do I mean by Goddess Connection? The Goddess connection is a feeling that one has touched the Divine. It can happen through a chant, or ritual used to call upon the Goddess we feel most akin to. Sometimes, in fact, often, people will feel drawn to more than one Goddess at a time, or different Goddesses at different stages of enlightenment. There are literally hundreds of Goddesses and trying to explore this subject can be very overwhelming.
One way to explore the Goddess Collection is through stones and crystals. I have always been drawn to the Mineral Kingdom and even as a small child, I felt the Divine in simple chunks of Quartz.
I have been studying and working with the healing and helping energies of the Mineral Kingdom for over 40 years, and I know first hand how the Divine can work through the stones, therefore I am working on a Goddess Connection to Stones reference. The following is only Part One, and I will let you know when I update it in the future.
I am trying to stock a little of all these stones in my Etsy Shop, but if you don’t see something you need, just send me a message and I will try to find what you need and make of it whatever you would like.
Do you have suggestions for this list? Did I miss something, or would you like to tell the story of your own Goddess Connection? Just leave a comment or write to me via the Contact Me link and I will get back to you ASAP.
Goddess Origin Corresponding Stones
Airmed: Irish Goddess of healing, witchcraft, magic Watermelon Tourmaline
I have great news! I have just listed a few new items of jewelry that can make you feel better, work more efficiently and look awesome all the while! There are many stones that can benefit us humans, but the ones that I recently worked on are going to be absolutely fabulous!
First up,Tabular Quartz Crystal with “Baby” – Tabular Quartz Crystals are the “Communicators.” These crystals are willing helpers in facilitating clear and helpful information between two people who may be having communication issues. This tabby having a baby stone on its flat side facilitates communication with children especially well. This piece is embellished with two silvery feathers, representing flight and freedom.
Next up and so amazingly surprising, Aragonite! This is a pretty fantastic gemstone, and the tumbled pieces are a lovely soft beige and brown color with some ivory colored streaks. This stone needs no embellishments so I used a very simple setting and let the beauty and magic of the stone speak for itself. Aragonite provides strength and support, helping to combat anger and emotional stress. Aragonite is attuned to the Earth Goddess, encouraging conservation and recycling. It is a reliable earth-healer and grounding stone. Aragonite transforms geopathic stress.
Baltic Amberis next up, and you will be very surprised by the gentle energy of these richly hued Amber nuggets. I combined the Amber with Tiger Eye so that the whole piece works synergistically to promote courage, poise, confidence, and calm. Meeting future inlaws? Job interview? Difficulties at work? Throw this powerhouse of a necklace around your neck or even keep it in a pocket and feel the soothing blanket of calm wrap around you! Amber absorbs pain and negative energy, helping to alleviate stress. Amber clears depression, stimulates the intellect and promotes self-confidence and creative self-expression. It encourages decision-making, spontaneity and brings wisdom, balance, and patience.
Tiger Eye is a stone of protection, Tiger Eye may also bring good luck to the wearer. It has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, assisting us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety.
Last of the new stuff is a really pretty Small Amethyst point, with an unusual silver plated wrap. Amethyst invites peace into your life and helps curb any kind of addictive behavior. Amethyst has healing powers to help with physical ailments, emotional issues, and in Energy Healing and Chakra balancing. Amethyst crystal therapies are primarily associated with physical ailments of the nervous system, the curing of nightmares and insomnia, and balancing the crown chakra. Amethyst brings peace wherever it goes. Known as the sobriety stone, Amethyst helps people break any addictive behaviors.
Please visit my Etsy Shop to see all these and more. If you have special needs, contact me, I may be able to help you! Next to be in the shop? I just received a truly amazing shipment of Lapis Lazuli, full of sparkle and that rich, cobalt blue that was such a favorite of Cleopatra herself! I’ll keep you updated!

are just beautiful, even if I do say so myself. I create them by painstakingly applying layer upon layer of enamel, to build up a hyper-realistic look that shimmers and seems almost real.
I’ve been working very hard to get back on track with my crafting, and especially my woodworking, as that’s very difficult for me to do in the Wisconsin winter, on my open porch/workshop. More on that soon, but for now, there is a whole new world of goodies in my shop now, including my Psychic readings, Spell candles and more! Stop into my Etsy Shop and have a look today! I will be adding some more meaningful content to this site very soon. I’ve just been working very hard and meeting so many amazing people atCosmic Delights, it’s been hard to find the time to write! 🙂 Speaking of Cosmic Delights and my readings there, I will soon be offering Palm Printing to go with the Palm Reading that I do!
Stephen and I are bringing back something we used to carry in our old store and expanding on the original idea, that is, Pewter jewelry and Pewter combined with semi-precious gemstones to provide both beauty as well as metaphysical benefits! Not to worry I’ll be back with lots more information and new goodies to tell you about soon. Send me a question related to my crafting or psychic readings to be entered for a free advanced Psychic Tarot Reading that I’m giving away this month. As always, if you have need of witchy services, be it spells, ritual tools or just ingredients for making your own magic, please contact me and I’ll see what I can do to help.
Today, I made some new Magical Amulets! Using herbs, oils, gemstones and some secret ingredients plus just a pinch of magic, I make them in three varieties as well as custom Magical Amulets for any number of purposes. Many people use these to help them with everyday challenges. Some reasons to order custom Magical Amulets is so that they can provide help with headaches, body pain, learning and retention of knowledge, courage and leadership and many more. The three pre-made varieties of Magical Amulets I offer are Peace and Prosperity, Money and Success, and last, but by no means least, Love and Passion.
I use many elements in creating these magical tools, including spellwork and gems. Some of the gemstones I use are
Rose Quartz, for love
Citrine, to bring positive feelings, and joy
Hematite, for grounding and to banish negativity
Aventurine, tom draw prosperity and success
Amethyst, to break addictions and bring peace
Clear Quartz, to magnify all other stones and spells
Tiger Eye, for courage and masculine energy
Sodalite, for pain relief
Moonstone for feminine energy and issues
I also use Cinnamon, Sage, Black Salt, Pink Salt, Clove, Rose Petals, Marigold, Catnip, Calendula, Almond oil, Cayenne, Tea Tree, and more. They are enchanted, Reiki charged, Blessed and empowered to work for the individual who wears or carries them.
These are a wonderful way to treat yourself or someone you love to a bit of good fortune! Easy to use, these beautiful creations work all on their own, empowered and positively charged. The magical work is all done, they need nothing other than the will of their wearer to direct their power.
These are similar in action to my Magical Spell Candles, but are ready to use, with no meditation needed. Their magic is passive rather than active, and is one of the most time-honored of magical items. Come by Cosmic Delights located at 2717 E Washington Ave, Madison, WI 53704 and have a look at them, or phone (608) 467-3093 to make an appointment to see me on Saturdays for a psychic reading or consultation. Custom amulets and other items are available after a brief consultation to determine your needs.
