Feb 1st marks the beginning and re-launch of my signature program, the 28 Day Dream Catcher Challenge. This is a self-paced video course, however February will be the only month with two live Q&A online meet ups with me!
I am so thrilled to shine some light on a very talented, Sapphire Soulinner circle member! Michelle Halpern is a Children’s Librarian and explores and plays with her own creativity on a daily basis.
She created this butterfly + heart mandala coloring page in her own creative free time, and has given me permission to share with the tribe. Michelle has a thing for butterflies (as do I) and I think its just a perfect freebie as we are exiting out of Mercury Retrograde (finally, wowzee—that was a rough one!) and entering into February, which is (typically) a more gentle, love-filled month.
Keep reading, for the FREE PDF you can download and color as many times as you’d like! I’d LOVE to see your colorful creations! Snap a pic and post on Instagram with #sapphiresoul and be sure to tag @sapphiresoul_ad
Did you print a few copies and color with your family, significant other or children? Snap some pics in the process and also tag us above, we’d love to possibly feature or regram your coloring session and creations!
For me personally, this is a time of transformation.
Butterflies are a symbol of metamorphosis, change, and beauty. Female butterflies are VERY picky about where they lay their eggs, or “plant their seed” because the caterpillars are VERY picky about what they eat. Kind of like WE should be so picky as to where we plant our seeds, what we eat and who we CHOOSE to surround ourselves with. Caterpillars than have one job: to eat and nourish themselves. Similarly, I think about the stages of creation I myself go through when something BIG is about to transpire. My “caterpillar” stage is typically me, shutting down or closing off and “eating” all the wisdom up I can. I’m reading books, researching, and literally trying to absorb all the soulful nutrients I can, in order to create change.
The caterpillars then shed their skin or molt, many times. They release, then have room to grow. Release, then more room to grow. They then are able to attach to something, like the stem of a plant. After about the 5th time of releasing, it forms a shell, the “chrysalis.”
The fortress they create around themselves has purpose. It keeps them safe, so they can get busy working on the transformation that needs to take place.
Many people think that it is a resting stage when really- the true transformation is happening! The body, wings and all the parts that make it a butterfly, are being formed. When the butterfly emerges, its wet and yet cannot fly. Fluids and nutrients must reach all parts of the butterfly in order for it to spread its wings.
Kind of like us, huh? When we are about to enter a new stage or project or job, there is a bit of “getting our feet wet”, or in this case–releasing our old shells, to step into something new.
In order to spread our wings and step into our beauty, we must go through metamorphosis, which is naturally destructive. #truthbomb
Valentine’s Day is obviously way commercialized, however it is a great reminder to not only show others you love and care for them, but show yourself some love, too. I’m showing myself love by setting clear boundaries, eliminating all that doesn’t serve me and sort of “cleaning up my love house” or chakra, in order to create space for the loving energy that wants to find me for all the right reasons, and stay there for however long it needs to.
If you’re thinking ofbuying a gift for yourself or someoneyou love- our “What Color is Your Love” Crystal Candy box will be sure to raise your vibration (and crystal collection!) Candy is Dandy, but crystals are a girl’s best friend 🙂
Cleaning up our love house isn’t always pretty. Sometimes, people get hurt. Sometimes, we get hurt. Energetically, you don’t have to keep those in your love house who are occupying residency and not filling your house with love. It has nothing to do with “rent” or money. As an entrepreneur, I’ve decided to close my “shop” (with the exception of workshops, downloadsand our Valentine’s Day box) for 40 days. I’ve realized, that I need 40 days in my “cocoon” to create all the parts necessary to fully emerge as a brand new butterfly. Maybe not brand new, but upgraded, with more colors and a further ability to fly 😉
As another form of self-love, I’m committed this year to FOCUS on what truly matters, and changing my energy with money.
Will I miss out on 40 days worth of shop orders? Probably. Will people go somewhere else to purchase crystals, blends and other sacred space items? Maybe. But I’m willing to sacrifice money for what is truly in my heart and soul, and what needs time and space to develop. And I’m willing to risk, that those who find Sapphire Soul or are already a part of the existing tribe for the right reasons will respect and stick around for what is to come. (To be clear, sapphiresoul.comis always open, orders are not effected AND the shop is “OPEN”, you can place orders at anytime, however the shop orders will not begin shipping again until 2/29/16. )February subscription boxes will still continue to ship the first week of Feb, at their regularly scheduled shipping time.

And here is a bit of knowledge from almanac.com
The wearing of birthstones is thought to bring good luck and good health. Astrologers long ago attributed supernatural powers to certain gemstones.
The birthstones we associate with certain months now are not necessarily the same ones as in ancient times. Once, color was the most important feature of a stone. Ancients did not distinguish between a ruby and a garnet, for example.
The names used in history may not relate to the stone we think of with that name today.
For example, a sapphire in the Bible was probably what we know today as lapis.
Diamonds were probably a white sapphire or white topaz.
The stones originally assigned to each month related to the stones appearing on the breastplate of a Jewish high priest.
Birthstone Meanings by Month
January’s birthstone, the garnet, is thought to keep the wearer safe during travel.
February’s birthstone, the amethyst, is said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. At one time, only royalty could wear the gem. Ancient Greeks thought that the amethyst guarded against intoxication. In fact, amethyst comes from amethystos, a Greek word meaning “sober.”
March’s birthstone, the aquamarine, was thought to cure heart, liver, and stomach diseases—all one had to do was drink the water in which the gem had been soaking. Early sailors believed that aquamarine talismans, etched with the likeness of the sea god Neptune, protected them against ocean dangers.
April’s birthstone, the diamond, in addition to being a symbol of everlasting love, was once thought to bring courage. In Sanskrit, the diamond is called “vajra,” which also means lightning; in Hindu mythology, vajra was the weapon of Indra, the king of gods.
May’s birthstone, the emerald, was one of Cleopatra’s favorite gems. It has long been associated with fertility, rebirth, and love. Ancient Romans went so far as to dedicate this stone to Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Today, it is thought that emeralds signify wisdom, growth, and patience.
June’s birthstone, the pearl, has long been a symbol of purity. The ancient Greeks believed that pearls were the hardened tears of joy from Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
July’s birthstone, the ruby, was regarded by ancient Hindus as the “king of gems.” It was believed to protect its wearer from evil. Today, the ruby’s deep-red color signifies love and passion.
August’s birthstone, the peridot, symbolizes strength. It is sometimes called the evening emerald for its light green color. It was once believed that the green peridot crystals found in volcanic ashes were the tears of the volcano goddess, Pele. When set in gold, this gem was said to protect the wearer from nightmares.
September’s birthstone, the sapphire, was once thought to guard against evil and poisoning. It was believed that a venomous snake would die if placed in a vessel made of sapphire. Traditionally a favorite stone of priests and kings, the sapphire symbolizes purity and wisdom.
October’s birthstone, the opal, symbolizes faithfulness and confidence. The word comes from the Latin opalus, meaning “precious jewel.” Necklaces with opals set in them were worn to repel evil and to protect eyesight.
November’s birthstone, the topaz, symbolizes love and affection. It is believed to give the wearer increased strength and intellect.
December’s birthstone, turquoise, is regarded as a love charm. It is also a symbol of good fortune and success, and it is believed to relax the mind and to protect its wearer from harm. Turquoise rings, in particular, are thought to keep away evil spirits.
Feeling like you are in funkytown this time of year? While some may feel like “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” others feel like a holiday blues traveler. The season is filled with magic, sparkles, family, friends, food and light– but amongst all of that can also lead to social anxiety, stress, obligation, resentment and jealous feelings.
December in general, can also leave us feeling burned out and downright depressed. *raises hand*
I know myself well and can anticipate the holiday burnout and crash before it arrives. Yet year after year, it still hits me. Yes, me. The self-proclaimed balanced woman who does yoga, meditates, sits with her magic and now is living each day in my little dream job world.
I get better, each year at expecting and knowing when its coming and what to do when it gets here. And here is what works for me: do nothing. Let myself off the hook.
I’m constantly pushing the envelope, creating and serving others all year long. December SHOULD be a time of pushing just a little bit more–being it the busiest shopping season of the year. However, the last thing I want to do is create and market and be in your inbox every other day, selling. Ew.
So– I let myself settle in funkytown for about 2 weeks. That’s my limit. I binge watch tv (I never, ever really watch tv), I buy and read all the tabloid magazines I can get my hands on. I paint my nails. A lot. I order a lot of books from Amazon. And I marinate in new material. If I feel like cooking, I cook. If I feel like treating myself with carry-out every other night, I do that. And I don’t feel bad about it.
I typically don’t create- until I feel I’m good and ready. Trying to create when you aren’t feeling especially creative is the worst. And, it creates crap nobody wants. Double ew.
We are so hard on ourselves, myself included. Whether your funkytown strikes in December or July or somewhere in between- notice when you need to chill the fuck out. Then do that. What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another.
So what makes me feel better? I do some or all of the below. Most of the time, it works. It might perk me up for the hour, for the day or be just the think I need to get in the holiday spirit. The Grinch isn’t stealing my christmas #thankyouverymuch. I’m in charge, I determine and make choices on how I want to feel, and so should you. But don’t just talk about them. Actually, do them. As Danielle LaPorte says “love your sadness, it won’t last.”
Try these things to start feeling more jolly inside:
Listen to a short, guided meditation each morning. Short. Guided. Not alone and 20 minutes. The last thing I feel like doing when I’m feeling shitty is another “thing” and I certainly don’t need to feel bad about “not meditating” or not “doing yoga”. I typically have a pair of earbuds right on my bedside table, and before my feet even hit the floor to go pee- I’m listening to Deepak or Oprah or someone with a soothing voice. Starting your day off with positivity is SO important. More to come on that this year 😉
Re-do and decorate your sacred space according to the season, or even how you are feeling. I do a little altar renovation whenever I’m not feeling what is currently up there. Your altar should…..ALTernate. It should reflect what you need/wish/are working on and want to call in. Feeling blue? Feeling lost? Bring in some citrine for positivity and angel aura quartz to connect with your angel guides. Light a new intention or affirmation candle. Gather some of nature outside and bring it inside (pinecones, rocks, branches) and if you are FEELING crafty, glitz them up a bit with some metallic paint. Purchase a new statue, crystal or totem to keep around. Treat yourself. You deserve it.
If gathering with others makes you want to run and hide- then run and hide. You have my permission. But please, find a balance. You know damn well when you are having social anxiety and when you don’t feel like washing your hair. There’s a difference. Allow yourself the time and space to be alone- but if you are going to be alone- then you better damn enjoy it! Don’t be alone to sulk and feel sorry for yourself. Once in a while is ok- but just like you need your alone time- you also need people time.
Connect with a group of people who love to support. You don’t have to be local to connect with a group of like minded souls. We are ALL around the globe! Aaahh- I have just the group! Click here to connectwith our inner circle, they are amazing and awesome.
Treat yo’self. Get the massage. Buy the new comfy, luxury sweater. Get your hair and nails did. Grab a new planner or something to HELP you to start turning your brain back on. Think about the future. Visualize, what you want and how you want to feel. Sleep.
After you’ve done some or all of the above and have ALLOWED yourself the time to simmer in your sadness- its time to start re-entering the world. And its just that simple, and just that hard. At some point- we need to return to gratitude. Life might not feel great right now, but what can you be grateful for? Start with a list, then expand on that.
When faced with your family or an awkward work christmas party- approach it from a space of gratitude. Start with the obvious. You have a family to sit and eat dinner with. You have a job which allows you to do x,y,z. You have that new luxury comfy sweater and money to get your hair did. Rub some peppermint oil on your temples, put on some red lipstick, drink a glass of champagne and meditate (for only 5 minutes) in the morning. Your future self will thank you 🙂
Join us for the first round of Desire Map workshops of 2016! We will get to the core of your gratitude, find and define your CDF’s (core desired feelings) then learn how to incorporate them into our daily lives. This life-changing work starts in February and I’m holding space for YOU. Grab your spot here.
ATTENTION: Gifting circle is now CLOSED! Join us in our Instagram challenge starting 12/1 to win a $100 gift card to Sapphire Soul!
Inside the inner circle, is where the magic happens. We are a connected group of creative, conscious souls who give and receive guidance, words of affirmation and wisdom. Its about truly connecting. Connecting to others, and connecting to yourself. We pow-wow daily and amazing friendships have been formed inside this circle.
Its also a place where I get to get-to-know my customers, on a personal level. The Sapphire Soul experience is never just about a box of stuff. Its about working with the stuff, learning from each other, being inspired and inspiring others to co-create the best version of our self. We are Mindful + Mystic Modern Goddesses™! Learning and using ancient wisdom and bringing it into our (very) modern lives.
The gifting circle WILL take place in our private Facebook group. I apologize in advance if you are not on Facebook, however until our membership site is launched Facebook is the easiest and most private platform to use.
The gifting circle is created to GIFT. We are gifting, because it feels good to gift. If you are hoping to receive something comparable to what you give or of higher value, I ask you to please; not join.
We gift because we want to bring light and love + a dash of magic to another person’s life. When you gift with intention, magic will show up for you too! It has to, its the way of the universe.
Give more of what you want to receive. But don’t gift, with the expectation to receive.
Send $5 via PayPal to: email@example.com (this solidifies your spot, agreement and is an entry “fee”, but will be dispersed x2 back to you at the end!) You MUST send your payment by 11:59pm EST on 11/27/15.
You will be emailed who you will be gifting by 11/29/15. You are free to send gifts to as many tribe members as you’d like (you must obtain their addresses on your own), however you are assigned 1 main sacred gifting sister. By signing up for the gift exchange, you AGREE to allow Allison to release your shipping address to your Secret Santa. Allison will not release your address to anyone EXCEPT your Secret Santa and by sending $5 via PayPal you are agreeing to not hold her responsible for any damages or anything that might occur.

You will receive ONE person as a “Secret Santa” and ONE person will receive your name. Secret Santa gifts ordered through Sapphire Soul WILL be mailed each Friday afternoon, 12/4, 12/11, 12/18, then 12/28.
Why Instagram? Its another way for us to connect through words and pictures. We will be running a #sapphiresoul #sacredcelebration Instagram challenge parallel to the same time as the gifting circle.This is a way to get to know the members of the gifting circle on a deeper level. The Instagram challenge is optional, but by participating you are then eligible to win the SHINING LIGHT prize .
The Instagram challenge is separate from the gifting circle. We will have outside members completing the challenge. You do not have to be a part of the gifting circle to participate in the Instagram challenge, but you need to participate in the Instagram challenge and complete in order to win one of the SHINING LIGHT prizes!
At the end of the circle (January 5, 2016) the entire tribe will be asked for input on who has inspired them the most (either through the correspondence in the group itself, in the Instagram challenge), or who is most deserving to be in the center of the SHINING LIGHT gifting circle. One person will be chosen and will receive a $100 Sapphire Soul gift card! Note: there will be 2 winners, 1 for the gifting circle and 1 for just the Instagram challenge. Winners announced January 10, 2016.
On January 5, 2016 all GIFTING CIRCLE participants will receive a code for $10 off in the shop. This is the original $5 you gave to be a part of the circle, plus $5 for participating!
