Our mind is a sacred garden, at times infiltrated by entities who aim to pilfer the precious reserves of our energy; our energy being the soul spark that is the seat of our existence. These entities can be organic, inorganic, mechanized, or artificial in consciousness. Do we have what it takes to discern the difference between them during our encounters? Do we have the clarity to know when we are being predated upon? Can we employ antiparasitic measures to free ourselves from the many things that leach on our thoughts, energy, and emotion?
It has often been understood and taught that an initiate must first reach out to a specific Spirit, Entity, Totem, or Deity they wish to work with as their chosen Patron in order to pursue an alliance with them. But what is less often acknowledged is the more important occurrence in which Patrons choose their initiates first without being asked to. An invitation to become an initiate is extended from the Patron because they recognize their own attributes, coherence, and compatibility within the new adept, and want to help them or grow their reach within humanity. This could be to help them spread awareness, or offer them protection and guidance.
If we do feel ready to work with a Patron but haven’t felt their presence yet, we can ask them to appear and respond to us. We can invite them to make their presence known so that a relationship can develop. This is an important step that we often overlook when working with new energies. We cannot just expect protection or favors without earning it. A Patron represents those who emulate what they are known for. And this can extend beyond cultural, ethnic, or spiritual lineages.
Turquoise is one of the most spiritually sacred semi-precious gems of all the gem varieties. Turquoise has been used in many cultures and tribal traditions for decoration, ornamentation, jewelry and spiritual tools. It has been used as a bridge to connect Earth and Spirit for centuries, and honor the strengths and personal callings of warriors. It is a symbol of bravery, spiritual assignment, purpose, and sacred journeys. Beyond just a gem synonymous with the history of the American Southwest, Turquoise is a gem appreciated world wide.
