Rock My World

I have always loved rocks. I first fell in love with the Kingdom of Rocks and Gems when I was 5. We were camping at Lake Havasu back in 1961. We camped about five feet from the water's edge and there we stayed for 2 weeks.

Amidst water skiing, boating and swimming, I spent many hours walking the edge of the water letting it lap against my ankles as I looked for pretty rocks. I found the most beautiful rocks all polished and tumbled by Mother Nature. My parents tolerated me bringing several pounds home from each trip. I looked the rocks up in a book and delighted in the precious gems I had collected.

Rocks have a life force, and personality. Created by God with purpose just as individual as its color and texture. Rocks have been used since the beginning of time to decorate, heal, protect, and empower. The age of technology made the word Silicon familiar to most people. Silicon Dioxide is the most abundant substance in the Earth's crust. Silicon Dioxide is most commonly found in nature in the form of sand or quartz. Silicon has been a prized substance since ancient times and is used in many different applications. All rocks can be useful tools for holding your intention and keeping the vibration of that intention with you. Rocks make good tools both because of their natural ability to transmit a healing or enlightening energy. Also, as a tool to keep you mindful of the goal you have asked the mineral to help you with.

How to Choose, Cleanse and Use Your Healing Stone

When choosing a stone, you may want to consult my blog post on the different rocks and their inherent qualities. Once you know what kind of stone you are looking for, it is important to align with the exact intention for which you are asking this stone to support you. Hold this intention with you as you sort through the stones. You will feel drawn to the proper stone for you and your purpose. Go rock hunting. Choose what you love. May God's works of art, rock your world!

Amethyst can be very effective at your bedside to help awaken psychic expansion and intuitive dreams. Size does matter as more mass generates more energy. Cleanse your stone before putting it into service. There are several ways to clear your stones.

My favorite is a combination of these 2 methods:

  1. Wash in soapy water and dry thoroughly. Bury your stone in salt for 24 hours.
  2. Place your stone outside for a full sun and moon cycle. Best during a full moon.

After clearing your gem or crystal, it is time to program its molecules or vibrations. It is important to realize that our Earth is 85% silicon dioxide and very programmable. Therefore, silicone is used in computers, medical equipment, and more. All we really need to know is that our own power of prayer and intention can be passed to your stone. Place your rock or gem between your hands. Call up the highest and holiest memory you have and direct this into your hands, much like a prayer. Silently speaking/intending into your stone.

You might think of this as a friend for support such as:

  • Please support my intuitive awakening.
  • Please create peace in my body, mind, and spirit.
  • Please support my feelings of gratitude and joy.
  • Help me to release my anger and forgive easily.

When choosing a rock or gem you should know the purpose for which it is intended. Know your intended purpose and the correct stone will reach out to you like a good friend recognizing you in a crowd. Much like choosing clothing, schooling, or a home. You choose to fit your needs. This works spectacularly with jewelry that you wear. I place my intention into all my rocks and gems, whether for my personal use or as a healing tool or gift. I also use this programming/intention method on all of my books and business cards saying. "Holy Divine Creator, please bring comfort peace and wisdom to all who come in contact with my products, for the highest and best good of all."
