There are many stones that have a reputation for relieving aches & pains of various kinds & some are significantly better at this than others. For this Three Stone series, I have chosen three that are excellent for their pain relieving & healing qualities. One (malachite) is quite easy to come by. The other two are more difficult to find, but well worth it if you can find them.
The first stone is Malachite. It is a beautiful multicolored green. It is one of the best healing stones to be found & revered in many cultures for it?s healing abilities. It's good for all sorts of pain relief, including aches & pains, broken bones, arthritis, achy joints, & torn muscles. Malachite can help enhance the immune system. It can also help you through painful emotional times, allowing you to let go of old emotional pain & wounds & thereby become healthy again. It is a good stone to carry when you are depressed or need a bit of balance in your life.
The second stone is Charoite. This is a purple & black stone from Russia. This stone is especially good for headaches. It is good for general aches & pains that are not chronic in nature. It helps the body to realign itself properly & thereby heal itself. It is a very calming & soothing stone & the black swirls often found in it (manganese) help bring additional healing elements into play.
The third stone is Dioptase. Dioptase is often found as small, beautiful bright green crystals growing on other stones. Even the smallest crystals are excellent pain relievers & healers. This is probably the best stone for pain relief of all kinds. It encourages the body to heal & reenergize itself. It has a natural calming energy which desensitizes the body & mind while helping you to heal. It also helps alleviate depression. It is an excellent stone for healing the heart chakra.
To use these stones you may wear them next to the afflicted part or wear them on your person. You can also use these stones to meditate or sleep with, thereby alleviating pain. Elixirs made from these stones are another way to benefit by them, but these should be made by a qualified person. As with any illness or pain, you should always consult your health care practitioner, as stones are an added level to your health care & not meant to replace a doctor or medication.
Of all the properties of stones, protection is one of the most important to people. There are a great many stones used for physical, emotional, or psychic protection. In general, since ancient times, any solid black or dark colored stone with eye spots may be used for protection. A note about protective stones: they are very personal pieces. Once you have become attached to your stone, usually within a few days, you should not share it with anyone else. It becomes attuned to your energy, and therefore, will work well for you, but not for anyone else. As these stones are so easy to come by, finding another stone for someone shouldn't be difficult.
Protective stones can help you in one of several ways. They can shield you from negativity, they can absorb negativity, or deflect it away from you.
The first stone is Pyrite. Pyrite is also known as fool's gold. It is usually a metallic gold or black and gold mineral. This is an excellent stone for shielding you on the physical & emotional levels. It is very common & easy to come by. If you are an extremely sensitive person, it might be a good idea to carry or wear a piece of pyrite whenever you go out. It is also good to have by your bedside to protect you from unwanted or chaotic energies while you sleep. It is especially good at protecting you on a physical level, so carry a piece if you have a dangerous or demanding job.
The second stone is Banded Agate. Two very common types of banded agate are Lake Superior Agate and Botswana Agate. Some of the more common colors are greys, browns, & reds. There are other banded agates that work just as well, but these two are well known, easy to come by, and beautiful. Banded agates protect and support you on a primarily physical level. They strengthen you physically, so you are not as apt to have an accident. Metaphysically speaking, the pattern of bands on these stones wrap around you & shield you from harm. They are also protective & very soothing on an emotional level. Banded agates are good to have with you when dealing with people who drain your energy or emotions. These are very good protective stones to give children. Botswana agate also comes in a pink & grey variety, which is good stone for children & women to have. It has a very gentle, loving energy compared to the stronger energies of most banded agates.
The third stone is Obsidian. Obsidian is volcanic glass. Apache tears are a common and well known variety of obsidian. Obsidian comes in many colors, including rainbow, snowflake & mahogany. Like the above mentioned stones, they are particularly good at protecting you from physical danger, although they work well on a psychic level also. Apache tears are especially good to have in your car or on your person for protection. Obsidian shields you from negativity, rather than deflecting or absorbing it. If you are in an extremely hostile environment, however, your obsidian may shatter or break suddenly, or you may notice it has cracked or changed color. It shields you as best it can, but if the strain is too much, it will break. This will alert you to danger.
If any of your stones break, do not wear or carry them any longer. Give them back to the earth. Be grateful they helped you & either bury them in the earth or put them in a lake or stream.
With all protective stones, it is important to cleanse them regularly. This will clean off any negative vibrations that accumulate on them. Cleansing is not a difficult thing to do. You can set the stones in the sun for a day or put them under the light of the full moon, or use a singing bowl or tingshas to clear them. (Pyrite, however, shouldn't be gotten wet). With all of these stones, the longer you carry them, the more attuned they become to you, and the better they will work for you.
As always, if you need medical assistance, see a doctor. Stones are no substitute for a physician.
There are several stones that can help with insomnia. The three we will be talking about here may help you with minor to moderate cases of insomnia and are all very easy and inexpensive to find. As always, you can wear or carry these stones, or put them by your bedside or under you pillow at night. You might also try them in elixir form.
The first stone is Hematite. It is a black metallic stone that is rather heavy for it's size. There is a great deal of reconstituted hematite on the market, but I recommend the natural variety. It may be a bit more difficult to find, but the effects are well worth the time it takes to find it. Hematite shields you from negative or disruptive influences. It works by shielding you from the chaotic influences that surround you and may make it difficult to get to sleep or to sleep soundly. It shields & grounds you, therefore, letting you fall asleep more easily.
The second stone is Amethyst. This is one of the oldest remedies for insomnia, dating back hundreds of years. It comes in many shades of purple, from very dark to almost pinky purple in color. For insomnia, I recommend one of the darker shades. Amethyst protects & shields you on an intellectual and psychic level. It protects the third eye area also. If you feel that your insomnia is caused by mental or psychic stress, amethyst may balance and calm you & have a mildly tranquilizing effect. It helps clear out any wild, chaotic or disruptive thoughts, thereby helping lull you to sleep. The purple color of the stone is also conducive to calming, restful thoughts.
The third stone is Sodalite. This is a beautiful medium to dark blue stone, often with white veins running though it. Some sodalite is very pale & chalky looking. Try to stay away from these lighter, chalky looking pieces. Sodalite can help bring the mind & body into a more harmonic state. It eliminates confused thoughts. It may also help you with self esteem issues & help you to trust your decisions more. By doing this, it helps you to calm down and be more comfortable with yourself so your thoughts will be restful, thereby helping you to fall asleep & stay asleep. The blue color of sodalite is conducive to peaceful thoughts, serenity & pleasant dreams.
As always, stones are no substitute for qualified medical care. If you are ill, see a doctor.
Three Stones to Help You Develop Your Intuitive Abilities
There are many stones that can be used to stimulate the intuition & increase your psychic abilities. Among these stones, three stand out. All are relatively easy & inexpensive to acquire, both as tumbled stones & as jewelry pieces.
In each case, wearing or carrying these stones, either individually or in combination, will help increase your intuitive abilities. The longer these stones are in your auric field, the more pronounced their result. Meditating with any of these stones on the 3rd eye will further increase your intuitive abilities.
As with any stone you are unfamiliar with, cleanse the stone before using it & spend short lengths of time with it until you are accustomed to its effects on you. You should meditate with a new stone for no longer than 10 to15 minutes at a time in the beginning. If you show any negative effects to a particular stone, discontinue using it. Not every stone is right for every person.
The first stone is Labradorite.
Labradorite is a mineral in the feldspar family. It often has a grey or black base color with intense flashes of blue, green or yellow coming from it.
This stone links the conscious & subconscious mind. It intensifies intuition & promotes psychic awareness. It is a mystical stone that helps you to delve into the intuitive world while shielding you from any unwanted energies entering your auric field. Labradorite will help you to see in which direction your intuitive gifts actually lie.
The second stone is Ametrine.
Natural ametrine is found in Bolivia & is a mix of amethyst & citrine. It?s both gold & purple.
Ametrine combines the intuitive function of amethyst with the joyful, sunny nature of citrine. It connects the physical world to the higher consciousness & provides focus during meditation. It opens the 3rd eye so you can reach deeper meditative states more quickly. It is a wonderful stone for increasing your powers of divination while protecting you on a psychic level.
The third stone is Sugilite.
This is a beautiful pink to purple stone, often with flecks or stripes of black manganese in it. It is sometimes known as Royal Azel or Luvulite.
Sugilite is probably the best stone for promoting your intuitive gifts that exists on this plane. When placed on the 3rd eye, it promotes wonderful & deep intuitive insights. It is a stone of channeling ability & awareness. The more this stone is in your auric field, the more profound your psychic abilities will become. It is also a very loving stone, which can be used by almost everyone.
Feel free to use each of the stones individually or combine them for a truly wonderful "psychic cocktail" that will introduce you to ever deepening states of psychic awareness.
