In august of 1986, I attended a retreat on Maui entitled, “The Souls’ Path”. I had talked a friend of mine into accompanying me. As we winged our way to Hawaii, my friend asked me to do a Tarot reading for her — she was having a horrible divorce. As I was reading for her, a flight attendant stopped by us and said, “ Oh you’re doing Tarot! When the dinner service is done, would you do a reading for me?”. Like most folks learning Tarot, I had only done readings for friends. But I, without hesitation, said “Yes”. For the next four hours I did readings for all the flight attendants, one flights engineer, and one pilot! My friends was a little put out by my absence. I, however, was amazed and excited. If this was the beginning of the retreat, then we were in for quite a ride! And so we were.
The retreat was orchestrated by Kevin Ryrerson, a trance channel. The being he channeled was Antonra, and ancient Egyptian High Priest. I was stunned when Kevin brought through Antonra, I recognized him! Everything Antonra taught during the two weeks we were together was familiar to me. This was confusing and thrilling.
I had brought with me a bag of Quartz crystals to be offered to the other participants, an obelisk, and a fluorite octahedron crystal of deep purple, bright blue, and golden yellow with tiny pyrite crystals sprinkled throughout. The Quartz obelisk was to absorb and magnify the energy of the gathering. The fluorite aids in concentration and focus.
In the middle of Antonras’ first teaching, he stopped, looked at me and then stood directly infant of me with his hand extended, palm up. He said, “The is Antonras’ crystal.” I relinquished it to him and responded, “It may have been Antonras’ crystal long ago, but it is mine now.” The room boomed with his laughter. And then, he looked at me with a slight smile and a light in his eyes and said, “I will keep it for the retreat.” At the retreat’s closing ceremony, Antonra put the fluorite in my hand and said, “There is a gift in this crystal for you, my daughter.”
I’m sure you guessed it, the gift was the creation of Stargazers! When my husband picked me up from the airport, he said he had a surprise at home for me. I asked if I needed an umbrella — we had discussed building a water all in the house — he responded, “No”, but I was suspicious.
When we arrived home and I approached the front door, I felt a delightful tingling at the nape of my neck. The house was filled with Quartz crystals, from magnificent clusters, to giant single points, to small individual crystals. Eyes wide, mouth open, I looked at my husband. He said, “Tess, I think you should open a crystal store.” I replied, “I’m going to meditate on this.” Holding Antonras’ crystal, I went deep into a meditation. When I surfaced, the path was clear. Stargazers opened 3 weeks later.
