I must admit when I came upon a sale of Yellow Obsidian - I had never heard of it. I was looking to buy several pounds of yellow claclite for the current Chakra Course I am teaching. But my trusted gem wholesaler suggested these gems instead. She assured me I would love the stones.
Was she right?
While I’m speaking honestly with you I will admit to having a slight addiction to Obsidian already, mostly snowflake. I have spheres, points, tumbled stones and jewelry, need I say more? So the thought of adding to my collection was intriguing, but yellow obsidian? WTH? If you are obsessed with stones too, then you probably know that black is the most common color of obsidian. However, it can also be brown, tan, or green. Rarely, obsidian can be blue, red, orange, or yellow. The colors are thought to be caused mainly by trace elements or inclusions. Meaning this yellow obsidian is a very rare stone.
When the stones arrived I was immediately transfixed! If you follow me on SC (Sarahpthomas) then you saw (and asked me questions) about the many snaps I posted of these cool stones.
But What Do They Do?
These cubes of yellow goodness are said to be great for protecting children, especially from bully’s and a great aide in getting to the “root” of whats really bothering you.
People also say they are great for anyone lacking self-esteem and are often used to boost self awareness. They are also used by healers to help calm and center oneself prior to energy working. This is done by holding a tumbled piece in your hand as you focus on your breathing and clear your mind. Almost instantly you will feel calmer and more self assured.
They also help one connect to their 3rd chakra energies in a gentle way. Making them perfect for third chakra work.
If you want to add a piece to your collection jump over here to the stone page and grab yours before they are all sold out.
In this video we continue on with the Sacral or second Chakra theme.

How are things? I just wanted to remind you that the July Full Moon is fast approaching. We celebrate with a "Full Moon Mini Master Class & Forecast" For the past 3 years I have been doing a monthly class that has evolved from just a forecast to so much more. The classes now include a new guided meditation each month, a list of astrological events and a handout covering what gemstones and crystals best work with these situations. (Plus an in depth overview of the next 28 days.)
It is part astrology forecast, part intuitive information ~ with a sprinkle of fun included. (You know how much I love to laugh!)
If you can't make the live call, no worries everything is recorded and available for download.
Why a new class every month?
Every month has its own particular energy and challenges. Why not use this to your advantage instead of blindly hoping for the best? The goal is to help you understand what cycles you and your loved ones are going through. And also what could be creating drama or opportunity in your life and how to best navigate the challenges of this ever changing energy. If you read your daily forecast on line, then you know that at times it can be rather "far fetched" - that's because it is using a broad, general overview. In these Full Moon classes I give you the information on what is really going on.
Did you know there was a best times to start projects, move, begin a relationship? Yep, the stars influence us a lot more than people realize.
If you want to know more - here is preview of a class I did in March.
I hope to connect with you in the next live class.
Do you work with or know about Mookite?
We have started the 4 week long course on the Root Chakra today and one of the more under-rated stones I shared with the class was Mookite.
This a powerhouse stone that is often overlooked, when people think of stones for the root chakra. This amazing stone is thought to be a huge help to many people with anxiety, stress, worry and other issues. It is also used to help one stay present and mindful. Many people say it helps them let go the past and also stop worrying about the future. How awesome is that?!
Mookite is also thought to strengthen the immune system and fortify the body. I personally, have witnessed some amazing results when Reiki clients begin working with this stone and just wanted to pass along the information to you.

How are things?
I receive reviews and testimonials from clients frequently. (I actually have added a webpage HERE if you want to read them.) Today I received this quite lovely (and unpaid) review and thought I would share it -
"Recently I experienced Reiki and some of the many benefits of energy healing. I met with Sarah (who is the owner of the Serenity Reiki Clinic) and a Reiki Master Teacher and gifted Spiritual Healer. I learned that Sarah has studied for many years in America and abroad, and has taught at home and abroad for the last decade. As a Reiki Master Teacher, she instructs others on how to harness their inner power in order to use it to benefit others, not just themselves. I for one am grateful for all that she is doing, because it has certainly benefited me. I have had several Reiki sessions with her and have felt her energy as she “read” my body and mind, without ever touching me. I have actually felt her pull negative energy from my body and mind and then have felt the rush of positive energy quickly move in to fill that energy void. But Reiki sessions are not the only things I have benefited from. Sarah has done card readings and astrological readings that have truly helped me to deal with life on a daily basis. Which reminds me, she is also a certified life coach and nutritionist, this amazing lady is a true healer. My sessions with her have helped me to heal mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially.
Like many folks, I was skeptical at first, but I am a true believer now. I actually regret not having sought her healing sooner. Oh, and I want to mention that she has helped me to reap many benefits from the healing powers of various stones and gems, too. There are so many facets to her healing methods! I am so fortunate to know Sarah and to be one of her clients. Please feel free to check her out on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook where she shares so much useful information on healing.
You owe it to yourself to seek out this truly special lady so that you, too, can benefit from her teachings, meditations, readings, and webinars. Take the first step to improving your life—check out Serenity Reiki and Sarah today."

Encase you have forgotten:
(January was a long time ago!)
2017 is a 1 year.
One years are about new beginnings and creations. So are you being called to create a new life for yourself? Perhaps a new career or a new relationship? We are almost 6 months into this year and the changes keep coming!
All of this is natural, but if you are feeling fearful (also natural) and resisting you may find yourself being PUSHED by the Universe. We change in order to grow. But if you resist, the Universe will push change on you in order for you to alter your course.
How do you handle this? Relax, breathe and know you are not alone. Also it's a good idea to up the self care and self work with meditations, affirmations, and energy healing sessions. Any healthy habits you can put into place now will really help ease the additional stress associated with these changes.
Also Jet, Labradorite, Chrysocolla and Tree Agate are all good stones to work with in times of change. Remember this too shall pass and soon you will be embarking on new adventures!
How have you been feeling lately? So Many people have been coming to me with odd complaints and problems, are you feeling it too? I decided it was time for another Spiritual Awakening class to address some of these questions and complaints.
Now let me state up front: This class is not intended to replace medical treatment or care. This is also not to be considered as medical advice, nor am I diagnosing your condition. Please seek medical attention if you are unwell. That being said, there are a lot of things we associate with ascension and processing higher energy. I tried to include a bit of science, some tips on handling this new energy, (besides my standard meditate and drink more water, lol) and offer you some simple ideas on how to be more comfortable as we move further along the spiritual path. I also shared a few stones that may help this process along and straight forward answers to some of the more common questions I am asked about this process. Read more here: Class Info
If you missed the live class it is available as 2 video files, watchable from the Serenity Course Channel. If you can watch Youtube you will be able to view these files. To view the videos, simply purchase the class (it's $22usd) and you will then be invited to view the files. The invitation will be sent to the email address you use, so plan for that. You can then watch the videos over and over as much as you like.
I hope this class is helpful for you and eases some of the discomfort you may be experiencing while working on your spiritual path. Spiritual awakening can be challenging, but it is also part of the process of evolving.
We just received a shipment of natural Fluorite Octahedron Crystals! These will sell out immediately but I was so excited I wanted to share these amazing stones with you.
What are they and are they natural?
Yes! These are naturally formed Fluorite Octahedron crystals. Did you know Fluorite forms naturally in octahedron-shaped molecules? But we rarely see it in this shape.
These beautiful Fluorite Octahedron are cut by miners, who split the Fluorite along its natural cleave lines. This is a beautiful example of the sacred geometry contained within living crystals. The combination of Fluorite's metaphysical properties and the octahedron shape is wonderful for inter dimensional work, meditation and healing energy work.
How Do I Use it?
These crystals are thought to be connected with the element of air, and in turn the heart chakra.
They are believed to be helpful in pushing past mental blocks and clearing past hurts. When used with meditation people have experienced deep and profound heart healing. They are also thought to help one overcome negative thinking by opening the mind to limitless possibilities and solutions. Fluorite Octahedrons promote forgiveness, compassion and empathy, for both oneself and others.
One of the most powerful ways to access the benefits of this sacred crystal shape – is to place a Fluorite Octahedron on ones heart, relax and breath the color of the octahedron into your heart center. Feel the gentle energy align with your heart center and allow the healing to take place. Listen to your breath and let thoughts and feelings gently raise to the surface to be healed. Repressed feelings and emotions will come to the surface and be dealt with and washed away in a gentle, easy and loving fashion when meditating with this crystal.
These stones can also be wrapped for daily wear. The small size allows you to carry in pocket or purse, or use in grid work. Each piece is natural stone and may not be “perfect” in shape, but they are as they were formed. Each crystal has been energetically cleaned and is ready to be of service.
In addition to being most helpful with heart healing, fluorite has additional healing properties by color.
Green Fluorite It is a said to encourage objectivity, mental clarity and learning. It is also used to cleanse and renew the chakras. It is a very claming stone, helping one to find peace in troubled situations. Warning: Long term use may lead to psychic development.
Purple Fluorite is thought to stimulate the Third Eye Chakra and brings some common sense to psychic intuitions. Use Purple Fluorite when you want to really focus on the expression of Spirit and communicate the message clearly. It is also thought to help one build personal power, courage and mental strength.
Yellow Fluorite is said to bring understanding and manifestation to intuitions. It is known as a stone of unity, harmonizing group energy and enhancing creativity. Use to remove artistic blocks.
Healers use Clear or White Fluorite with the Crown Chakra to bring about a merging of personal and spiritual energies. Clear Fluorite aligns all of the chakras, and helps you see what is holding you back in your spiritual evolution. Most often used in Reiki treatments for overall balancing energies, clear fluorite helps one assimilate and harmonise energy.
We have not posted these in the store, because I know they will sell out. If you want to know more or would like to purchase your own, please drop me an email.
