I wanted to enclose a link so you can see the differences in the posts between this blog and my new blog.
While I do sometimes elect to share the same post on both blogs, there’s always additional content that isn’t duplicated. SO… not wanting to leave you out, here’s a link to my new blog. If you have interest in signing up for it you can do so at the bottom of any page on my site at: www.CalleensCrystals.com
I’m in the process of trying to figure out a way to combine both blogs into one. Yet, since the new website deals mostly with healing, crystals, astrology and all things alternative, and this website delves a bit deeper into the paranormal, I haven’t found the best way to do this just yet.
I am working on it though. I hope you enjoy both blogs.
Please feel free to share opinions, options, advice, or whatever you’d like to share.
Just a quick update. I hope (fingers crossed) to be able to share all the information on this new project I’ve been feverishly working on next week, here in this newsletter.
It has taken up SO much of my time. I apologize for not posting more here, but this has been monumental for me to put it all together.
However, I think it will all be worth it. I hope you love it! I SO love it!
I am just so excited to get the products put together and up and running, so you can get your hands on them and give me feedback. So far the limited amount of feedback I’ve gotten has been really good.
Anyway, please don’t think I am ignoring you. I am seriously working like crazy and hope to tell you all about it next week.
This is an interesting read, and not just for marriages, in general. Calleen
“It’s not a great year for weddings, unfortunately.”
When we reported last year that couples shouldn’t get married during wedding season in 2020, we had had no idea that the stars were alluding to a global pandemic. But alas, COVID-19 struck in March and the wedding industry hasn’t been the same since. So what about 2021? Does astrology have any good news to report? We spoke with professional astrologer Jessica Lanyadoo to find out.
The Cause of the Chaos
Speaking frankly, Lanyadoo advises couples against tying the knot in 2021. Why? Blame a major transit known as Saturn square Uranus that “tends to coincide with delays and frustrations and best-laid plans being subject to curveballs,” she explains. The transit will be present all year and will be most powerful on February 17, June 14, and December 24, so consider these wedding dates to avoid.
And just like 2020, which was littered with Mercury and Venus retrogrades, 2021 is no different. “The thing about Mercury Retrograde is that the plans we make during Mercury Retrograde, and also the events that we have scheduled, tend to run into unexpected surprises. They tend to have silly miscommunications or mistakes, like just forgetting to cross your T’s and dot your I’s can end up having meaningful results.”
It is considered unwise to sign contracts during a Mercury retrograde—another reason why Lanyadoo advises against a trip to the altar this year.
Lanyadoo continues, “It’s not a great year for weddings, unfortunately. A big part of that is, of course, COVID.”
Navigating Wedding Planning in 2021
But if you’ve already postponed your nuptials once or can’t wait to marry the love of your life any longer, you can still get married this year. Lanyadoo just has a few sentiments all engaged couples should follow:
The stars say the theme of 2021 is adaptability—and couples must do just that. “So as much as possible,” she advises, “create plans and strategies for your event that have flexibility to them.” That means being able to downsize your guest list at a moment’s notice or adjust your seating arrangements on the fly. When hiccups arise in your day (and they most likely will), tackle them poise.
Make a List, Check It Twice
The presence of Mercury Retrogrades throughout the year, like Lanyadoo mentioned, also impacts wedding planning. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do the bulk of your planning during this flow, rather you must be aware that more details are susceptible to going wrong than usual. Lanyadoo elaborates, “When these Mercury Retrograde periods are occurring if you’re going to plan a meaningful event the key is to just scrutinize your plan. Triple check everything. It doesn’t mean don’t get married, it simply means be really, again, adaptable, flexible, and careful with your planning.”
Below, when the three Mercury Retrogrades will occur in 2021.
January 30 to February 19
June 1 to June 21
September 28 to October 16
Rethink Your Big Day
“This is a great time to think about alternatives to traditional weddings,” she adds. And as many of us have come to know in the past year those alternatives are aplenty. Rather than taking on the stresses of planning a traditional wedding during a pandemic (which we say you shouldn’t do!), envision a unique day from the get-go. From micro weddings to elopements to Zoom “I dos,” there are ways to tie the knot safely—and somewhat stress-free—in 2021. Heck, a new trend is even emerging known as an anniversary reception: A party held on a married couple’s wedding anniversary in lieu of a traditional reception on their actual wedding day. So, having a smaller affair this year is an excuse to throw an over-the-top soirée in 2022. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate twice?!
Positive Effects on Your Relationship
But wedding-related challenges aside, the astrological chaos of 2021 can actually benefit your romantic relationship. Lanyadoo believes, “What truly defines a marriage is how you handle hardship—and 2021 does come with its fair share of hardship.” Consider the challenges 2021 throws everyone’s way as an opportunity to strengthen your relationship and lay the foundation of a long-lasting marriage.
“It doesn’t have to be a negative omen for a marriage to have a wedding during a difficult time. It can be instead an opportunity to come together as a team in ways that you wouldn’t otherwise have.”
“Is it possible for my 3-year-old daughter to remember what happened when she was still in the womb?” asked Catherine P.
“She told me she dreamt she was floating inside my tummy, that I was cooking eggs and vegetables, and that she ate them also. This is true because I mostly cooked eggs and vegetables during my pregnancy. Also, she mentioned that she felt hot/burned once inside my tummy. There was this incident when I accidentally burned my tummy with hot water when I was pregnant. She also mentioned that she dreamt how she came out from me. Is this normal for her age, or does she have any psychic ability?”
Well, this is not a common occurrence, but it happens. For example, I read a story years ago about the case of a 3-year-old American baby who was heard by her parents humming an old French folk song. Now, nobody in the household spoke French nor did they know any French song. Then somebody remembered that when the baby was still in the womb, they had a French nanny who used to sing that same folk song.
Babies who remember things while still in the womb must have a photographic (or eidetic) memory and, yes, they also exhibit strong psychic abilities later in life.
Parents should, therefore, be careful when saying things in front of an unborn child. They can hear and remember things, believe it or not. But not only when babies are still in the womb. They should also be careful what they say in front of a newborn child.
I remember the case of a woman who grew up very shy and lacked self-confidence. She felt nobody wanted her and she had difficulty relating to people or making friends.
It was later revealed during a regression session that, when she was born, her parents expressed disappointment because they wanted the first child to be a boy. They expressed such disappointment in front of the newborn child, not realizing the baby could hear what they were saying.
There is such a thing as prenatal (i.e., before birth) programming which refers to “the theory that the environment surrounding the fetus during its developmental phase plays a seminal role in determining its disease risk during the later stages.
“The theory originated during World War II, when a German blockade in the Netherlands led to a lack of food supplies, causing the Dutch Famine of 1944-45. The famine caused severe malnutrition among the population, including women in various stages of pregnancy.”
An examination of the impact of lack of nutrition on babies born during and after the famine showed that “over the course of their lives, these children were at greater risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and other communicable diseases.”
That’s why what a woman eats during pregnancy should be monitored carefully.
But prenatal programming can also refer to the practice of educating the child while still in the womb.
For example, reading books or stories to an unborn child can make the child appreciate reading books later. Listening to classical music can make the child appreciate classical music.
A mother who wanted to make her unborn child good in math used to memorize multiplication tables and solve algebraic problems aloud to make her unborn child appreciate math. And true enough, these children so taught by their parents while still in the womb turned out to be good in mathematics.
Over the next few weeks most of you (or at least those who visit this website) will notice some pretty significant changes taking place.
I am finally working on the manifestation &/or completion of a project I’ve been mulling over for about two years. I am SO excited about it. I can’t wait to share all of the details with you soon.
However, since everything’s not yet entirely concreted in, I know it’s best I don’t say a thing. I realize I have to at least try to stay semi-flexible (hard at my age) for any last minute adjustments.
I will, of course, still be offering readings, so no worries there. They can still be arranged either via this website or by calling me.
I really do believe this next phase involves my shooting straight at my “life purpose”. It feels like something I’ve been heading towards forever… albeit resisting it vehemently at times. I felt I had other things I wanted to accomplish first, so I always back-burnered this.
PLUS, I am a Virgo. As such, I need all of my little damaged ducklings swimming in what some might call a “slightly chaotic synchronized arrangement”. Meaning, I’m OCD and terribly detail determined.
In the next few weeks I hope to have all of this up and running. Yet, there is still lots of work to be done, some of which is slightly out of my control. That part is driving me slightly bat-s-crazy. So no definite timing just yet.
But I wanted to let all of you know when you visit this page over the coming weeks, you’ll definitely notice things being rearranged and redone. Yet, I’m still here. I still do what I’ve always done. I’m simply adding something so super cool to the mix. I hope you’ll love it too… or at least benefit from it.
I saw this and it spoke to me, so I’m sharing. I wanted to add to this by saying; if you’re an empath you know this is true. You also know it’s both a curse and a blessing for those who love us… and yes, for we ourselves.
Firstly, we are intense on a level many haven’t encountered before. And while many potential suitors are pleased-as-punch about this, they actually aren’t sure what to do with us once they have us.
It seems we’re almost too deep, too serious, too mysterious, or just plain too complicated for most. In truth, we’re simple beings. So very simple. It takes so little to please us, but it does take a few things. Things like giving us space and allowing us to “process”. We feel things on a level that cause us pain sometimes, even if it’s not really our pain, or sadness, or grief to experience.
Nevertheless, it becomes embedded in us until we work it through. In turn, that makes us moody, sensitive, withdrawn, and really unsure of how you can be of any help to us. So we pull into ourselves.
Conversely, once processed we may become “into you entirely, with our whole beings”… laughing, joking, kidding, and dancing around. All of this drastic change-in-attitude confuses most mortals.
Therefore, we have many, many, many relationship turnovers. We really do seem to be more suited for fantasies than for real-life, day-to-day interactions for many.
STILL… I wouldn’t have it any other way. Would you?
I so “get” that people think I’m depressed, or a loner, or just plain weird (p.s. I am a tad unusual)… simply because I stay home almost always. Oh sure, I go out to exercise, to eat, to grocery shop, to otherwise shop when absolutely necessary (ha), and to visit people I care about… again, not as frequently as they’d like.
BUT… I have to recharge. I absorb SO much. I also seem to rather automatically give out SO much, just in order to be engaging, that my time alone is never boring, depressing, or stagnate for me.
So if you’re empathic or psychic or sensitive or otherwise in-tune with other people’s vibes, energies, and/or emotions, my story is likely your story as well. Meaning, do you… in the precise way you know works for you individually. Really, it’s all you can do and still have something left to give others.
In actuality, DOING THINGS takes energy… and we sensitives give out so much while we’re doing those things that most of us need to recoup our energy expenditure. Some might do so by working in their gardens, puttering around their homes, reading, watching TV, or working on things online and over the phone. This is even more needed as we age.
Bottom line is, many of us sensitives actually look forward to those days where we know we’re headed home with absolutely nothing we have to do. HA! I know, strange to those unlike us… the extroverts who actually get energy from associating with others. Image?!?!? But, I “get” that.
For me personally, I simply know my bliss is in my home. And if I do venture out to be with you, it means I think an awful lot of you. You are important to me.
NOW that doesn’t mean we sensitives don’t often enjoy our time out and about with a few folks. We do. No one is “taking” from us when you ask us to go do “things”. Often, we actually want to go. But much like a phone battery, we lose steam and have to return to our charger (in my case, my home) in order to be prepared for the next time.
Anyway, this is why I decided to share the above meme. It’s so very appropriate for those who “take in too much” like myself.
It’s part of the price we pay for being super sensitive. Still, there are so many benefits that come with being ulta-sensitive I won’t even whine about it too much.
So don’t worry about us when we withdraw, it’s definitely not personal. It’s just how we live our lives without overdrawing.
