Graduation is a momentous occasion to celebrate the next chapter of life. Endings and beginnings offer a sense of accomplishment and the excitement to start something new. Clarity and focus are an important ingredient in taking the next step.

To graduate is to take a step into the future. It is the celebration of the gradual change that occurs over time. At this time of year, many are graduating from schools with degrees or completion of a course of study. There are also those who have graduated from one way of being to another.

As you design your reality over time, you create lists and take action. There is a constant motion toward that “step” that feels as if a sudden shift has occurred. There is nothing sudden about it. It’s like the statement, “they became an overnight success.” In reality, the seemingly sudden success is a series of steps that culminates and appears as if something sudden occurred.

It’s the result of taking the time to imagine your desired outcome in detail. Over time, you imagine what life will be like when the new reality has already been in place.  Daydreaming about the completion of a project, a final step in a school program, and a multitude of other types of completions is supported by the time you spent painting results in advance.

As we graduate in life, there are four areas of life that stand out -  money, safety, love, and health. To support yourself or your graduate, add a little sparkle to the spiritual toolbox to maintain a good focus and clear intention.


A jade stone in your pocket or a pyrite block on your desk is a good reminder to affirm: Abundance and prosperity are constantly flowing in my life. There are plenty of people with plenty of money who want the goods or services that I offer.


A black tourmaline point next to your computer or a hematite ring on your finger is a constant reminder that you are safe, focused and aligned with this positive thought. I am always safe and protected.


A rose quartz bracelet or a pink calcite tumbled stone nearby is helpful to increase romance and attract loyal and caring friends in your life. Make it your intention to amplify your willingness to allow love. Think this good thought.. I allow love. I have the best friends!


A rutiltated quartz or a garnet in hand can help to focus your intention to take specific steps to improve your endurance and overall health. Use this affirmation to amplify your intention to renew your passion for living a vibrant life. Vital life force flows vibrantly through me. I am strong and healthy. I am grateful for my energetic passion for life!


Over the years, I have found that whatever thoughts, words, and feelings are rolling around in my consciousness is what manifests in my life. There is great value of understanding how our energy and thoughts form reality. Let these gems with the matching positive thoughts help you shine light as you graduate in various ways throughout your life.

Everyone needs positive thoughts and inspiration - even me - the one who writes affirmations and positive thoughts every day in every way  . . . all the time. It's the power of intention and ATTENTION that creates reality so focus on all good things activates your ability to automatically attract what your heart desires. The trick is to think about and focus on what you WANT, not what you don't want.

I like to crowd out negative thoughts with good thoughts. Good idea right? I certainly don't want to think about worrisome subjects and I recommend that you avoid worrying as well. Afterall, if what we think creates reality, well then . . . THINK GOOD THOUGHTS.

My relationships with friends and colleagues are supportive.

I am so grateful that people are happy for my success!

GemSpot for Ammonite

On April 22, 2016, in Crystals, Essential Guide to Crystals, Gem Spot, by MargaretAnnLembo

GemSpot for Ammonite

ammonite-3The energy of this beauty holds the vibration of inner connection and gratitude. Ammonite is a fossil from an extinct group of invertebrate marine animals. The spiraling structure of this fossil provides a tool for spiraling into the center of your own consciousness. Focus on this fossil while using tools for awareness like dream work, meditation, spiral dance, and walking a labyrinth or a medicine wheel.

Ammonite assists you in reaching in to examine the deeper recesses of your mind. Gaze at this fossil and follow the spirals to encourage your mind to go within to find answers, uncover truths, and deepen your connection with your own consciousness. It is helpful for resolving problems or issues by getting to the center of the challenge.

Ammonite fossils are usually found as spiral (ram horned)shaped calcite fossilized shells. Named for the ram’s horns, ammonite assists you when it is necessary to just ram ahead and delve into the past to uncover the source of emotional trauma. With this fossil on hand, bring the challenge into the light, observe it, and allow the light to transform and transmute stuck emotions and feelings that hold you back from achieving your full potential.

This stone signals a time to stop, go within and allow yourself to step into the deep recesses of your mind and emotions to uncover the truth. It can be helpful to go to the ocean or a body of water to take the time to reflect.

Affirm: All the answers lie within me waiting for me to acknowledge them. Ancient knowledge and wisdom are available to me when I go within. I recall my dreams when I wake and use them as tools to help guide me in my waking life.

I am blessed with positive thought, love, abundance, and respect. In retrospect, I realize I have had amazing mentors. My parents, my sister, and a family friend – along with positive experiences in private schools – shaped my ability to see the good in everything and find the positive perspectives. I was taught at a very young age that what you think about becomes reality. In addition, the belief and truth that I can do and become anything is engrained into my consciousness. I know that all I have to do is try. And that is how I live my life – with love, joy, enthusiasm. I know anything is possible. I embrace and practice the magic of believing.

Throughout my career life, which started in mortgage banking, I have practiced these foundational principles of positive thought to create success and happiness. I used the power of color, coupled with intention, in my corporate life. I dressed with consciousness using a red outfit on days I needed more power or a blue blouse on a day I needed inner peace. I practiced color therapy in my daily life and still do! As my days as a banker drew to a close due to the stock market crash of 1987, I had already invested in a small business venture purchasing crystals and gemstones from Arkansas, the quartz capital of the United States.

This simple step of participating in the small business of buying and selling quartz catapulted me into the birth of my ever expanding business, The Crystal Garden, established in 1988. When I created this store my intention was to provide a space where people could shop but more importantly feel better and peaceful because of their visit. I wanted it to smell good, feel good and emanate love and well-being. Mission accomplished! The Crystal Garden has grown and expanded to include a wholesale division for my aromatherapy products. As an aromatherapist and spiritual practitioner, I am receive aromatherapy formulas and recipes from the Divine. They also include crystal tinctures, flower essences, Holy Waters, and Sacred Site essences.

In addition to the great vibes of my retail store and spiritual center, The Crystal Garden is a mecca for people to find sparkling gemstones, essential oils, books, events and many more spiritual treasures all which are supportive on all levels - physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

For close to three decades, I have been immersed in the world of gemstones, color and essential oils. I offer what I have learned through my speaking engagements, workshops, webinars, meditation CDs and books.

I am a Llewellyn author of award winning Chakra Awakening: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy and the Power of Positive Thought (2011) and The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones (2013). The Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing (2016)

My first book, Chakra Awakening, is now in 6 languages. It was because of a very kind well-known author, Ted Andrews, that the doors to Llewellyn Worldwide opened. Thanks to his introduction, I have become one of their A-List authors. Another publication is in production to be released in November 2016. More on that soon. It is an honor and a privilege to be a Llewellyn Author!

I self-published The Angel Gemstone Oracle Cards (2011.) These cards were a perfect tool for divination, stone identification and definitions as well as an affirmation deck. It is still available smart phone app! This deck sold so well that Findhorn Press published it in 2013 as The Angels and Gemstone Guardians Cards. It has been transformed and updated with new photos and beautiful graphic design by Richard Crookes.

Synchronicity introduced me to Findhorn Press. As a bookseller I had a conversation with the US Sales Rep for Findhorn and the conversation turned toward asking his advice about publishers who might be interested in my Young Readers version of Chakra Awakening.

Color Your Life with Crystals: Your First Guide to Crystals, Colors and Chakras (Earthdancer – an imprint of Findhorn Press. 2013) was born from the desire to share the magic of believing, the power of color and crystals with young readers. I learned these principles and truths at a very young age and it has helped mold me into who I am today. This book fills a need for children of all ages. I remember a moment in time when a young boy came to me while he was shopping with his grandmother. He held up a little book from a divination deck and said, “Is this book on crystals for a boy my age?” I looked at the book and realized that is was not and, of course, immediately searched to find him a book to satisfy his inquiry. When I didn’t find any type of book for him, I realized that I must provide this book on positive thought, colors, chakras and crystals for the children of our world.

I am so grateful to be counted among the Findhorn Press authors. It is an honor and a privilege.

Now, my newest deck Archangels and Gemstone Guardians Cards (2016) features 11 Archangels with 4 Gemstone Cards for each totally 44 cards for messages, inspiration, Divine guidance and positive affirmations.

Findhorn Press has published two of my spoken audio publications – Chakra Balancing Crystal Alignment and Cord Cutting: Releasing the Energetic Ties of Your Past – available on CD and MP3.

And . . . wait there’s more! I self-published seven spoken audio publications available in CD format and as an MP3 download. They are primarily meditations and positive thought reminders. Here’s the list:
Color Meditation
Meet Your Master Guide
Open Your Heart to Love
Short Meditations for Busy People
Crystal Singing Bowl Meditation
Meet Your Power Animal: A Drumming Journey
Think Good Thoughts: Positive Affirmations for Everyday Living

I am grateful to know my life’s purpose and that I have the venue to provide this service to the world. I am grateful for the physical structure of The Crystal Garden and the 27 plus years at 2610 North Federal Highway in Boynton Beach, FL.




Financial Success: Attracting Abundance

By Margaret Ann Lembo

As we enter this New Year, it’s a great time for contemplation and reflection on how we want our life to move forward. Abundance and lack are a choice. Health and illness are often a choice as well. How quickly we recover from life’s challenges is also always up to us. Here are some thought to help you with attracting financial success as we step forward into this New Year.

Letting Go of Lack: Understanding Your Money Blueprint

How do you perceive abundance? Pay attention to your thoughts, use the tool of self-observations, install word patrol into your consciousness, and learn to reframe limiting thought patterns.

Knowing what you want

You have to know what you want in order to create it.  The shift from focusing on what you don’t want to what you do want must take place to create the commitment to create abundance.

Make a list and be as specific as you can. For example for income - How much can you imagine yourself making? Write down your personal annual income. Set your intentions high. Try not to limit what you write down because you never know what opportunities will arise!

Ask yourself: “How much time, energy and commitment am I willing to give to the creation of these goals?”  Then you will have a clearer realization of whether or not it’s important enough to put onto the list. I usually tend to set my goals high and reach for the stars. You know there is an expression, "if you shoot for the moon, at least you'll end up among the stars."

Setting your goals

What do you love to do? How much time do you spend doing the things you love. Make a date with yourself to let yourself decide how you will spend your days and then take the following steps to help you create your reality.

  • Start by asking for things that you can imagine yourself having or achieving.
  • Expand your consciousness and your imagination – think bigger!
  • Make the list and work the list
  • Create a Vision Journal


The value of written goals

It has been said many ways and many times that if you write it down you make it happen. You will also find profound results if you state your intentions and goals aloud to a close friend or trustworthy colleague. In short order you will attract what you set forth into the ethers! Here are a few key points to contemplate.

  • Definitive plans produce definitive results.
  • Written goals and objectives create crystal clear intentions that you will not forget.
  • Goals that are written serve as a yardstick of progress.
  • Writing crystallizes thought and thought motivates action.
  • Writing stimulates visualization.


The value of affirmations

Affirmations work according to the law of displacement. It is a tool of self-talk, self-suggestion, auto-suggestion, and self-commands. An affirmation is a positive declaration that describes what you want to be, what you want to have, or how you want to live your life.

I have a millionaire mind!

I am self-confident and deserve all my heart’s desires.

I am always in the right place at the right time.

I magnetize the people, places and situations into my life that assist me with my goals and objectives.

I am always at the right place at the right time.

There is plenty for everyone!

My Dreams come true!

My choices and possibilities are expanding every day.

The universe is safe, abundant and friendly.

I am abundantly provided for.

I do what I love and I know the money will follow

I live my passion

I am an excellent receiver. I receive massive amounts of money.

I allow myself to live and think in unlimited ways.

I create what I want easily

I allow and invite good to come into my life

I earn unlimited income doing what I love.

You tend to draw to yourself that which you set out for yourself. You become precisely what you imagine yourself to be. When your goals are clear, vivid, and written down, they act as a magnetic force to draw you to them.

Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass. – Paul J. Meyer
