Dear Seekers and IX Keepers,

Our theme for the April Consciousness Compass is pause and reflect, where we take time to deeply contemplate where we are as a person and as a soul.

We chose Galilea to be our Crystal ally and guide for this introspective process. From her expansive base grow a multitude of clear quartz points, representing all the directions we can explore and choose. These directions get their spark and strength from a foundation of inner peace, where a sense of lightness and joy inspires us to create the life we seek.

As spring begins to unfurl her beauty, let’s pause, reflect and ask, “Am I moving in the direction of my dreams – in the direction of my inner beauty and strength rooted in peace? Or do I need to redirect?” As the seasons change, it’s a perfect time for us to do the same.

It is our deepest hope that this month’s Compass nourishes your consciousness with inspiration and content designed for your journey of growth to align your body, mind, and spirit. We are here with you, and for you.

With Love and Light,

Instituto Xilonen


About the Name
Galilea is a name of Italian, Hebrew/Israeli origin, that means “district of nations,” or one that is a unifying force.

About this Crystal
Galilea is a clear quartz multi-point cluster. Clear quartz is found globally and is linked to a wide variety of spiritual meanings, legends, and myths. It is an extremely versatile Crystal and is considered a master healer due to its ability to amplify energy, retain information, and be programmed with focused intent. Quartz also has piezoelectric properties where it can transform mechanical energy into electromagnetic energy, making it a vital component in today’s technology.

A Crystal that has many points growing from a common base is called a multi-point cluster. These Crystals show us that no matter what opportunity we take, we can remain connected to a place of solace and strength.

Message from Galilea
“As you can see I go in many directions. I am searching and seeking where my rays and focus can be best received. I am exciting and share the excitement like a burst of flavor and high energy voltage.

I am here to assist in releasing the low energy blasé emotions of many who are residing on the earth plane. I seek to push through the layers and remind all beings to be very excited about their role and their place in this wonderful Universe.

I am here to spark a memory of the endless ways to be happy and to create joy in a world where the focus on the imperfect is highlighted. As you can see I am not perfect in my form but I am POWERFUL in my outreaching. I am BEAUTIFUL in my purpose to incite and to inspire creativity and kindness and interest in reaching higher to vibrations of more purity. How can one look at me and not smile? How can one look and feel me and not feel the jolt of joy that I give out? We can all give out jolts of joy and I invite you to do it more often.”

Affirmations from Galilea
“I look beyond the limitations and lack of perfectness this current society has created.”
“I celebrate the intent and the purest joyful energy rather than the form.”
“I am very happy with who I am.”
“I easily give out pure enticing love.”

Poetry originated in the temples, in chants and sacred songs. It is a gift to our senses, inviting us to pause, open to the intimacy of our hearts, and access the Spirit within.


By Martha Postlethwaite


Do not try to save

the whole world

or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create

a clearing

in the dense forest

of your life

and wait there


until the song

that is yours alone to sing

falls into your open cupped hands

and you recognize and greet it.

Only then will you know

how to give yourself

to this world so worthy of rescue.

April begins on a waning lunar tide, with the Sun and lovely Venus traveling arm in arm through Aries, the sign of desire and daring action, known for advancing courageously and at times for looking before leaping. On April 3rd Mercury will also head into Aries the ram, to nurture our strategic intelligence. One of the highest archetypes associated with Aries, is the sacred inner warrior, our wise and brilliant strategist, willing to plan carefully and wait patiently, in order to ultimately succeed. Therefore here at IX we are choosing to connect with that wise, inner strategist, and take the time to pause and reflect this month before moving forward with plans, goals and visions.

We are coming out of a winter of immense retrograde reflection regarding our dreams, commitments and collaborative plans. Mercury and Neptune begin the month in visionary Pisces, reminding us of the dreams that have been calling to us. On April 3rd when Mercury, the planet of mind, heads into strategic Aries, our inner strategist can review the blueprints of our dreams, and help us assess where we need course corrections or revisions before forging ahead, in order to assure that we are indeed moving toward our desired vision with effective plans that will assure success.


Mars, the ruler of Aries, begins the month in quicksilver Gemini, the sign of swift thought, which provides another good reason to slow down and proceed thoughtfully and deliberately. Mars in Gemini invites us to cultivate strategic intelligence, including the patience required to win the long game of success. The flame of our desires is burning bright as the month begins, with the Sun, Venus and soon thereafter Mercury in passionate action oriented Aries, providing plenty of energy to advance toward desires that call to our hearts. By late April the Sun, Venus and Mercury will have moved into earthy constructive Taurus, inviting us to begin pouring the foundation of our dreams.


Consult with your sacred inner warrior as April begins. Take note of your true desires and the wise strategies that will ultimately win the day. Cultivate the personal power and discipline of the warrior. The New Moon in Aries on April 11th signals the perfect time to adorn yourself with ruby red, and move ahead with right thought, right word, right action. The following two weeks look fertile for constructive action to build our dreams.


The Scorpio Full Moon on the 26th illuminates our constructive efforts, and the deepening relationships with those we want to share our lives and our dreams with. The very next day on April 27th, Pluto, the planet of transformation, stations retrograde and it’s time for a long deep review of mergers and where we need further inner empowerment and transformation in order to ultimately succeed.


With Love,
