Tool of the psychic: Rhodolite for channeling, meditation and intuition

Rhodonite Collage ImageRhodonite, sort of like Garnet–I love stones!  (crystals)  My mother did too.  She’d often pull along side the road to pick up a stone to examine the treasure closely.  My brother and I got used to the feeling of the car jerking over to the shoulder of the road—bump, bump, bump.  She’s going to get (yet) another stone@!  Part of my childhood that drew my attention to them in the first place. She was as excited (or more) than the rest of the world about the Moon Rock that the astronauts brought back with them, eventually making the trip to see it at the Smithsonian.  Actually touching a real Moon Rock–huge!  Anyway, thanks mom for reminding me of my connection with rocks and crystals at such an early age–she was a rock hound for sure!

Like many others, Rhodolite is thought to help with intuition and aiding with meditation and channeling.  I’m revisiting the crystal kingdom and realizing that many of my personal collection of crystals aid with the psychic work that I do–tools of the trade.  I was drawn to the crystal to purchase — or did the crystal select me like the wand chooses the witch or wizard.  Moot point really.  Anyway, my crystal book says that rhodonite is known as “the stone of inspiration”.  Every psychic should own one!

PS–don’t mistake rhodonite for rose quartz because of the pink color (some people do); rhodonite usually has gray with it.

Crystal Divination – Hematite for grounding into the body, making peace with it

Image HemititeImage HemititeI got to thinking today about all of us on Earth here in a body and specifically about how it is when the body simply can’t do what you’d like it to anymore or at any time really if it’s temporary.  Forgive me; it’s just that  I saw a picture of my X-husband today and it sort of freaked me out.  Am I going to look like that in 11 years?  (He’s got 11 years on me.)

I wanted to swim today and (due to some type of body betrayal–the flu? what is it? cleansing? clearing?) turns out it was a no-swim day.  Oh, how I wish that I had a pool of my very own in my very own yard that could be used when and however; but alas, it’s the YMCA for me!  Oh, please. Don’t misunderstand, I’m so grateful.  The thing I’m writing about is my thought of inclusion, everyone, the Buddhist prayer that starts with, “May all beings be …. ” and then usually we hear happy or free of suffering after that.

Whatever the experience is for me, there’s never a feeling of being alone with it because there is a global understanding that there are others who also have this same frustration, worry or suffering just like me.  Of course, then there’s a feeling immediately like “Oh, yes, let me help those over there…” which prompts my own internal mantra that goes something like, “may all those who are not able to do what they would like to do right now feel the love and support of Life… and so on”.

Yeah, sometimes it is disappointing–Life.  But there always others who suffer equally or worse and we think of them and we become liberated ourselves.

I feel like drawing a card… doing a divination… about this.  No, let me draw a crystal.  Which stone can help us when we feel frustrated because our body won’t do what we’d like it to do.  Oh, well look here!  I drew Hematite out of the bowl.  Good ole’ Hematite… for grounding!   And Hematite helps you to sort thing out in your mind.

I’ve heard it told that if someone has a fever, you can place hematite on the head to cool the body, draw out the heat.  Personally, I’ve never tried that.

Hematite facilitates the attainment of peace and inner-happiness–that’s what my crystal book says and that sounds good.

Hematite kind of helps you to ground in the body and be okay with it — in whatever state it’s in.  Hematite is also thought to support your goals and intentions.

Personally, this stone has always made me think of water… but then today, everything seems to do that.  I can’t help it that when this body hits the water and begins the swim that I feel like an eagle in the sky!

(I know how that feels; I drank eagle essence once.  Don’t ask.)

Maybe I can swim tomorrow.

Meanwhile, may we all ground into our physical bodies (no matter the condition) and make peace with it… and may all beings without exception experience happiness and the causes for happiness and may that expand in their experience.

Crystal Divination – Botswana Agate for focus on detail and toxin release

Botswana Agate collageBotswana Agate!  I drew a stone today as part of a divination exercise for my life.

This particular stone is known for its ability to energize the auric bodies and helps the body rid itself of toxins.

It is said to be able to counteract poison no matter if those happen on the physical, emotional or intellectual level.

I find this divination right on–in view of my recent (and still a bit current) physical symptoms of headache, body ache and nausea.  Some sort of toxin sounds pretty plausible to me.

Living alone in the mountains for 15 years not exposed to humans or places living in or around many humans habitats, it’s not all that far fetched that my immune and nervous system is still trying to adjust to living in so-called civilization now.

Quiet mountain seclusion meets big city and when they mix… toxic?!

Anyway, the Botswana Agate… this stone also has qualities of energy which aid a person to concentrate and focus; that’s good because for my next trick I’m going back to work on the new, soon to be website.  I like the waves in this stone; makes me think of swimming!  The water!  I do miss the water right now.  We swam before we talked and before we walked and breathed but we forgot!

Anyway, all agate stones (and there are many varieties) are believed to generally balance the emotional, physical and intellectual bodies.  I think of all agates as good stones to have around when one is doing any kind of writing.

Anyway, this stone helps one when paying attention to details is a must!  Oh and it’s usually purple and gray.  By the way, psychics do readings for themselves all the time and this has just been one for myself.  I asked why I’m dealing with these certain physical symptoms right now (headache, nausea).  I’m going to put this stone in my little pouch and wear it around my neck for the rest of the day.  No more eating out for a while, and I’m going to wash off my veggies and fruits better–just in case.  For now, going to get more water–whatever the toxin is, I’m trying to drown it! LOL
