Energy workers love stones and crystals. Sure, they make beautiful jewelry, but the real attraction is…ENERGY!
Science is confirming what healers have long known—there is power in the minerals from the earth. Uranium yields atomic energy; magnets demonstrate positive and negative forces; strike two hunks of flint and start a forest fire.
I’ve always been attracted to rocks. As a child I loved visiting the home of my parents’ friends, Jon and Lois. They were “rock hounds,” climbing into the hills on expeditions searching for interesting stones. I have a memory of sitting in Jon’s garage surrounded by shiny stones he had tumbled in his homemade rock polisher.
As the years passed, the couple amazed me with their vitality. Christmas cards revealed Jon and Lois waving from exotic locations. Now well into 80’s, they are still dancing on Friday nights at the local Elks Lodge. Where do they get their energy?
One secret is—their rocks! Their house is filled with sparkly geodes, bowls of tiger eye, selenite, agate, and amethyst. Every room is charged with quiet stone sentinels emitting earth energy. My elderly friends lead positive lives in many ways, but the energetic home they’ve created for the last fifty years surely plays a role in their secret to healthy longevity.
While I’m no rock expert, I am increasing incorporating stones into my daily life. Here are a few of my favorites:
Amethyst—these lovely purple crystals are thought to help the mind and aid in overcoming addictions. Last Christmas I purchased a bag of rough chunks through an Amazon dealer. I got the notion to put a couple under my pillow for deeper sleep. It worked! Interestingly, I noticed in the dark that they emit a spark when bumped together, visible proof of their pulsing energy.
Malachite—this is my “calming stone,” green, cool, and smooth. It is known as the “mirror of the soul.” If my mind is racing and I need to settle down for a power nap, I place it on my forehead. Its steady frequency slows down my frantic thoughts and refreshes my whole body.
Black tourmaline—an increasingly important stone in this age of EMF (electro-magnetic frequency) pollution. It counteracts the tiring bombardment of the EMF emissions from electronic devises. Place a good-sized chunk of black tourmaline in front of your computer for protection. You might be able to feel the difference. I can!
Rose quartz—Known as the “love stone,” offers peace and joy. I have a favorite piece of rose quartz that I often use during healing sessions. It helps clear emotional turmoil and distress. Sometimes I circle it over a client’s heart chakra and imagine drawing out the pain. Clients report feeling much more at ease after a treatment. Of course, I always cleanse it after the sessions.
Mastering Self-Attunements by Ole Gabrielsen gives instructions on receiving a rose quartz “attunement.” In other words, the frequency of the rock is incorporated into the healer’s auric field. That sounds a bit weird, but, out of curiosity, I followed the instructions. Much to my surprise, the next client I had reported seeing a rose quartz in her mind’s eye during her healing session!
There’s definitely power in the rocks. Next time you see stones for sale, take a few moments to hold them in your hand and feel the energy pulsing in your palm. If one “calls” to you—take it home. You may be adding a very positive force to your living environment—and a lovely decoration also.
