Yep that's the very woo-woo subject of this blog. Read on... :)
Do you collect stones and crystals? Do you ever feel like a particular stone has found its way to you with unseen assistance? As if the stone's indwelling spirit or elemental knew that you were in need of that specific stone at a certain period in your life, and it went to work behind the scenes to get itself into your hands? As a firm believer that this physical world is only one part of reality and that we are connected to all of creation through an invisible web of energy, I'm not embarrassed to say that this happened to me recently, with a rather spectacular piece of sugilite.
Sugilite crystallizes in the form of lightly banded masses and ranges in color from pale lilac and pink to dark purples. It is named after the Japanese geologist, Ken Sugi, who first identified it. It is found mainly in the Kalahari region of South Africa. It has been described as one of the most important love stones for this age, and can assist us many different ways. For starters, it is a very protective stone and guards against negative entities as well as removing negative attachments. Its energy moves from the base chakra all the way up to the crown chakra and can provide a pathway for the movement of Kundalini. It is very effective in the heart chakra. It can also help with understanding one's reason for incarnating here on Earth and for uncovering soul purpose. It is a very nurturing stone and can help with emotional problems and assist one in releasing worry. If you are consciously working on spiritual development this stone is very beneficial. It will help you to live authentically and to embrace who you really are. It can help in the development of psychic gifts (which, by the way, we all possess!) such as automatic writing and channelling. It is wonderful to enhance the dream state and help in remembering important dreams. It may assist in lucid dreaming also.
Wow- what a stone, huh? One of these gorgeous stones managed to find its way to me very recently through a friend who traded it to me. It was in a broken silver bracelet setting, unusable in that state. She mentioned when she handed it to me that it was full of good energy. It took a few hours of having the stone, but eventually I had a flash of insight that I should be keeping this stone. It literally "spoke" to me with a very personal message, relevant to some inner "stuff" I have been going through. I unset it, reset it into a necklace for myself, and over the last week or so I have been receiving even more hunches and synchronicities since wearing it every day and sleeping with it on my nightstand. I had a powerful, attention-getting dream just last night.
I believe if we are open to the possibilities, remarkable things can come about with the help of the mineral kingdom. So, if you are a stone-collector, you may want to observe when a significant rock enters your world, study up a little about the metaphysical/spiritual meanings of that rock, and meditate on what it could mean for you. You may be pleasantly surprised to discover spirits assisting you where you least expect.
