Cleaning Instructions for Crystal and Gem Stones

Crystals and gemstones are structured to absorb energy, utilize energy, magnify energy, transmit and receive energy.  The general operating system of a crystal is to collect and absorb from its environment and this is why it is important to clean them.    The following information is how I clean my crystals; however, there are other methods to cleaning crystals and gemstones.   Depending upon the use of your crystal or gemstone it is advisable to clean them weekly or monthly.

 

Cleaning Instructions for Crystals: 

  • Use one part salt (regular salt is fine), and two parts water.
  • The water is best at room temperature or tap water.
  • Submerge the entire crystal in the solution.
  • Allow for the crystal or gemstone to remain in the solution for at least 1-2 hours.
  • If the crystal or gemstone is too large, use a spray bottle and mist the crystal or gem stone with the solution.  As you are spraying the solution on the crystal or gem stone it makes for a more powerful cleansing if you chant while spraying.
  • After a thorough saturation, use clear water to rinse the crystal or gemstone.
  • Use a towel to dry the crystal.
  • The recommended chant is the Om Ah Hum.

The Apache Story of Karma

The Apache Story of How the Karma Invocation was Created 

Our Native Elders speak of this great story.  Many mystical moons ago, the Creator decided to create this beautiful Mother Earth and said, you have had many lifetimes in other places and have experienced karma.  I will give you the gift of dream time, where your body can rest  and your spirit can travel in the energy world to resolve past lives and aspects of karma.

Our native perspective regarding karma is … We believe that Karma is a mechanism by which we become aware of our own and other’s unawareness, have compassion and provide healing for this karma in a compassionate way.

The Creator provided a wonderful energy gift called the Karma Invocation to work on our stress points and soften our karma,  for past and present life. The Apache story related to the Karma Invocation is a wonderful but extensive story. I shortened this story for this document, however, you are welcome to be mentored by me via our training programs and personal one on one sessions. You are welcome to contact our office for additional information.

Karma Medicine is utilizing the karma invocation recorded and guided by Billie Topa Tate. This karma invocation was created from a very old tradition regarding the gift that the Creator gave the Nde people ( Nde means the Apache people ) about using our dream time to resolve our past life and present life karma, through a combination of healing words written to access this special energetic connection. The karma invocation is recommended  to be listened to every night before sleep time.

Enjoy this wonderful ancient energy tool to help soften karma.
I look forward to seeing you very soon,
Billie Topa Tate

Gratitude Gift | Prosperity Mantra

Your On-Line Gift  ‘The Lakshmi Mantra’ by Billie Topa Tate

Lakshmi Mantra – is known to bring wealth, luxury, beauty, power, generosity and auspiciousness.  Goddess Lakshmi represents fortune, purity, and courage .  Billie Topa Tate personally chants this beautiful mantra which can be used to promote beauty and prosperity.

A mantra is a set of words which may appear to have an immediate meaning, however, when repeating the mantra, the energy of the words start to address the imprints of emotional energy that may be energetically charging our cells with a limitation or a unawareness.  By listening to or chanting this mantra we adjust our energy field to promote beauty and prosperity within our aura.

Instructions: The initial instructions regarding using this mantra is to say the mantra 2 – 3 times daily while you are doing something else.  The reason for this guideline is…  that part of our mind which involves reasoning might block the process of cleansing our cells of energetic emotions.   Therefore, if we do something else while we are saying the mantra, we are keeping that part of the mind busy and allowing the mantra to cleanse our energy field of a limitation or emotional imprint.

About the Author: Billie Topa Tate – Mescalero Apache and Founder of MSI Wellness Center in Evanston, Illinois.   During my training with my wonderful teachers, I have learned and utilize wisdom filled techniques such as, mantra and or affirmations.

Please enjoy this on-line recording as our gift to you for all your loving donations in support of Billie Topa Tate’s Birthday this year. 

Interview with Chicago Meditation Expert Billie Topa Tate

In honor of National Meditation Month, we sat down with Billie Topa Tate, the founder of MSI and Mescalero Apache healer and teacher to learn more about her journey with meditation practices.

What inspired you to launch your meditation practice? 

When I was growing up I was around a lot of wonderful elders.  They were like gentle giants and the energy they carried was very dynamic. Their eyes demonstrated the peace and wisdom that they carried with them.    They spoke the story of their wisdom that inspired me to ask myself the question …”what are they doing to allow for this beautiful energy to flow through them?”.

I would often see the elders meditating, being quiet in meditation for relatively short periods of time- approximately 30 minutes. Then they would come out of that meditation with great answers and peaceful demeanor’s.   This led me to the meditation platform of connecting with the Creator,  my higher self, and all of my wonderful energetic resources which has extremely profound results.   Walking with our teachers during our meditation is absolutely a wonderful experience and gives an opportunity to ask the questions that need to be answered in our lives.  Not all meditations are created equal, you need to find the one that will benefit you the most.

When do you feel the most beneficial time is to meditate?

The most beneficial time to meditate is your power time and that is different for everyone.  Some people like to meditate in the morning and some in the evening.

I like to meditate early in the morning because it begins my day in a very powerful and profound way.   I would suggest people experiment observing which time of the day provides them with the most insight and positive energy.

Also meditation is most beneficial when we do it on a regular basis.  During a stressful time, when we have a pressing issue or an important question that needs to be answered – these are all ideal times.

Tell us your thoughts about being able to meditate while for example taking a walk vs in front of a meditation altar?

There are many meditation platforms that are available.   All of them have a common denominator, no matter if it’s a walk in nature or sitting in front of meditation alter.   The common denominator is our breath and our intentions.  Our mind is a goal driven mechanism and launches us into the energetic platform of healing and resolution through the sacred balance of our peaceful breath and our sincere willingness for wisdom filled healing insights.

My teacher used to say, when you administer divine light into your body, the body will heal faster.  I took this teaching and I created a new meditation which is a short version of a very advanced meditation I have used for many years which facilitate beautiful light into all our organs.   I would recommend this meditation called “The Gift Of Inner Light” to all.  You can contact our office to purchase either the digital format or the CD

yama and niyama

National Meditation Month | What are the Yamas and Niyamas

“Keep your thoughts sacred, and your world will become sacred.  It’s the quiet place inside where you return over and over again which nurtures  your thoughts sacred, your heart expanded and your dreams alive.   Meditation helps you to create your sacred place.”

-Billie Topa Tate

The Practice of The Yamas and The Niyamas in Meditation:

The practice of the Yamas and Niyamas definitely inspires us to remember that meditation is a way of life — not just something we do for 20 minutes three times a week.  In fact, if they are interwoven in every fabric of our life.

The Power of Yama – Control

Yama is a process by which the actions of the body and the functions of the mind are volitionally restrained. It purifies one’s words, thoughts, and deeds, enabling the aspirant to reach the deeper aspect of his or her own self that remains dormant in an undisciplined life. Through the practice of yama, an unknown inner power is experienced, because the body becomes quiescent and the mind becomes tranquil and able to function better.

The 10 Yamas:

1. Non-Violence
2. Truth
3. Honesty
4. Sexual Continence
5. Forbearance
6. Fortitude
7. Kindness
8. Straight-Forwardness
9. Moderation in Diet
10. Purity (Bodily Cleansing)

The Power of The Niyama – Golden Rules of Contact

After following the yamas, one will be able to follow effortlessly the rules of conduct, thus enhancing the development of one’s spiritual nature that makes one harmless, selfless, friendly, loving, and respectful to all creation, from mineral to man.

The 10 Niyamas:

1. Austerity
2. Contentment
3. Belief in God
4. Charity
5. Worship of God in any form
6. Openness and constant study by reading or listening to explanations of teachings or doctrines and scriptures
7. Modesty
8. Having a discerning mind
9. Repetition of payers
10. Observance of vows and performing sacrifices

Energy Stones

Connecting with Your Energy Stones and Crystals

Crystals and Stones experience their consciousness through the energies that flow through them. This means the energies of the natural forces and other minerals around the crystals connect you, your beautiful intentions and your interactions with your crystals.

When you connect with your crystal or energy stones you are initiating this crystal to the virtuous action of co-creating with you.  Always clean and de-program your crystal before beginning your co-creation with your crystal.

The Importance of Cleaning your Crystal or Gemstone:

There are many ways to energetically clean your crystal or gemstone.    Crystals and or gemstones are structured to absorb energy, utilize energy, magnify energy, transmit and receive energy.    The general operating system of a crystal is to collect and absorb from its environment and this is why it is important to clean them.    The following information is how I clean my crystals, however, there are other methods to cleaning crystals and gemstones.

Depending upon the use of your crystal or gemstone it is advisable to clean them weekly or monthly or daily.

Cleaning Instructions for Crystals or Gem Stones:

  1. Use one part salt (regular salt is fine), and two parts water.   The water is best at room temperature or tap water.
  2. Submerge the entire crystal in the solution.   Allow for the crystal or gemstone to remain in the solution for at least 15 minutes – 1 hour.  If the crystal or gemstone is too large, use a  spray bottle and mist the crystal or gemstone with the solution.     As you are spraying the solution on the crystal or gemstone it makes for a more powerful cleansing if you chant while spraying.
  3. After a thorough saturation, use clear water to rinse the crystal or gemstone.
  4. Use a towel to dry the crystal.
  5. The recommended chant is “I ask that any previous program on this crystal to be removed” and “ may this crystal be empowered with peace, peace and perfect peace”

You can also use Witch Hazel as a replacement for the salt component for the cleaning solution.    These two solutions are the deepest and simplest way to clean and clear your crystals or gemstones.

attracting love

Attract Love Today With Free Loving Kindness

Today is a day to celebrate love and friendship.  Karma is the spiritual principal of cause and effect, a belief that what you put out in the world spiritually and emotionally is what you in return will receive.  Today is a day of giving and receiving love.  We are encouraging all our followers to increase the love and kindness they bestow on others.  And as a result we will provide you with tools to attract people to bestow love and kindness onto you.

Energy Flows where attention goes….

Attracting Love | Setting and Envisioning Your Perfect Relationship:

In order to invite love and kindness into your world, you must first set the right environment and envision what you are looking for.  A good example would be an Olympic athlete who prepares and practices for his/her course.   The athlete focuses on the course, imagines the course,  walks thru the course and removes actions, thoughts, emotions which may hinder the course, thus perfecting the course.    By fine tuning the course and practicing how to get to the end of the course, the athlete envisions what he or she truly wants the course to be become.

This is how to set yourself up for the perfect relationship.

Loving Kindness Mantra to do during the day:

Say the mantra below to begin your process:

“I tap into the power of the Universe.
I am beautiful and everyone loves me.”
(eliminate sarcasm this blocks all good energies)

Instruction on Loving Kindness Mantra:

Do this with attention without tension. Repeat it in your mind like you are singing a sweet song and using a rhythm like ocean waves or breezy trees.

Make a List of Attributes:

Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual, Financial

It is very important to list out the attributes of the person you would like in your life.   Just like pursuing a great job that would inspire you, empower you and financially support you,  filter out what you don’t want and focus on what you do what.  After listing all the particulars of appearance, emotional, mental, spiritual and financial – keep this list with you and record it on your phone to listen to it daily.   Keep in mind – the universe will take your list and search for the person.  Also, remember –  the universe may change some of the variables like the weight or height or color hair or even the career sector,  this happens for your higher good.

Each and every person has reason to hope for peace and today we can create a sacred space for everyone and make a difference. It would be wonderful if everyone in the world would meditate and share Loving Kindness.
