Hawaii’s Stone Whisperer Hears Hope

When I first met Angela Studer, The Stone Whisperer, two years ago she was, frankly, terrified. She and I had both washed up on the Hawaiian shore about the same time. I was a new widow embarking on the next phase of life, whatever that might be. Angela had been excited when a new job for her husband of 27 years had brought their family to Oahu. Living the dream turned nightmarish when he abandoned her and their son, leaving them less than $200 in the bank.

Born with psychic gifts and an optimistic spirit, she had endured the long, abusive marriage by focusing on the positive. On the mainland, she had developed a spiritual business designing crystal jewelry, offering energy healing, and classes as The Stone Whisperer. She raised a developmentally challenged son and made the best of a bad marriage.

Suddenly, she found herself in the middle of the Pacific ocean in one of the most expensive places to live. She couldn’t make her condo payments and wondered if she would soon be joining the ranks of the homeless, living under tarps on the sidewalks sheltered only by banyan trees. Despite her fear and trepidation, Hawaii felt like home. Indeed, the rocks and native Hawaiians seemed to welcome her as “o’hana”–family.

Even the language came easily to her, as if she already knew it. Akashic memories of a former life in ancient Lemuria emerged. A Hawaiian kahu (healer/respected elder) invited the blond mainlander with the Midwestern accent into her home and became her kumu (teacher). Angela learned healing methods, chants, and was ordained as a kahu, which is highly unusual. Native Hawaiians have learned through hard experience to keep their secrets to themselves. Yet they embraced Angela and gave her the name “Pohakuola” meaning “Living Rock.”

Though she expected to receive an eviction notice any day on the condo, she took good care of it. Inspired by her view of ancient volcanic mountains, she turned her backyard into sacred space.  Bleached coral washed up on the beaches formed the boundaries of a labyrinth. She explored the west side of Oahu, an area seldom visited by tourists. She discovered sacred sites and energetic healing spots. Her spiritual guides brought creative ideas to mind to create income and utilize her gifts.

As Angela puts it, “I feel as though I am part of the rocks. I feel that I am their voice and they are alive, an extension of God’s source placed here to inspire us in more ways than we could imagine.”

She began offering “Hidden Oahu Spiritual Experience” tours. Visitors from around the world can get off the beaten track and be refreshed in quiet groves and tidal pools, and receive Angela’s unique healing gifts. Every tour is different, inspired by her guides’ leading for the people involved.

Crystals and gems began speaking to Angela again. New pieces of gallery quality, wire wrapped jewelry emerged from her imagination through the movements of her fingers with the wire and stones. She imbues each piece with healing energy.

Our paths have crossed intermittently through the past two years. I’ve visited her home for classes. The energy from all the stones and crystals is palpable. Her house has truly become sacred ground. Angela exudes a shining energy of love. Though she’s been forced to live a very hand-mouth-existence, she’s developed a deep faith in the God’s provision. Yet, she does her part. Seeking a firmer financial footing, she took real estate courses and recently passed her exams. She is now a licensed realtor.

She will bring her special gifts to her clients, offering to bless the houses they buy and sell through her. A vision is developing of a spiritual sanctuary with workshops, labyrinth, and guest rooms. Seeing what Angela has accomplished in two years against the odds makes her dream seem quite plausible.

Angela is so much more than a survivor, she is a beacon of the Aloha spirit. If you’re visiting Oahu soon, consider adding a Hidden Oahu Sacred Experience to your “must do” list. You may discover the stones will whisper to you also.

Bright blessings,

Dana Taylor

Power Up With Stones and Crystals

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:

thZW0L4OT5Amethyst—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.

th0M8WM1J0Malachitethis 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.

th[3]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!

th[3] (2)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.

Rock on!
