Magical Ruby Incantation

This is a message from Jade from Doreen Virtue and Judith Lukomski's book "Crystal Therapy":

"I call to those willing to walk in the fire of action and self-awareness: Rise up and come unto me, for the lifeblood of creativity and breath of purposeful movement pulsate within both of us. Act with intention and watch the world open as you share your light. I'm energy personified, one of the yoral clan who lay upon the ancient breastplate of activation. Ask me to show you the direction of your agreement, then sit with me in reflection to feel the knowing clarity of purpose wash over you. Join me in embracing the power of potential realized. We exist in a continuum, never alone, so reach for me as you prepare yourself and invite truth to reign."
