Healing Properties Of Stones



G'afternoon Every One!

I have decided to expand my "blogging", especially since I work with healing stones and crystals in the jewelry I make, I thought I would  share with you all the wonderful healing properties stones have....


The Power Of Agate




Belonging to the quartz family, agate was one of the first tones used by humans, with worked pieces dating back to 25,000BC. The crystal is found in many varieties:



  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Green
  • Orange
  • Red 
  • White
  • Yellow

It may also have green or brown-black inclusions (moss agate) or regular bands around the edges (fortification agate). Agate is sacred to the Greek God of Healing, Aesclepius, and has long been associated with healing and protection.




In Ancient Babylon, the various shades and colors of agate were believed to have different properties:
  • Red agate to cure insect bites and stings
  • Green to cure eye infections
  • Black or striped agate to protect women from disease.
It also has a long history of use as an amulet for protection from drowning, falling, mischievous fairies and poison.


Axinomancy: Agate Divination

The Vikings and Saxons used agate to find lost items by ax and stone - a method of divination known as axinomancy. A double-headed ax would be made red-hot and then placed in the ground, the shaft being pushed into a hole. A round agate pebble would then be placed on the ax head.

If the pebble stayed on top of the ax, the questioner had to look elsewhere for the lost item; if it fell to the ground, the questioner had to follow the direction of the rolling stone to find the missing item.

You can divine by holding an agate pendulum over your palm and asking it questions requiring the response "yes" or "no". It is recommended that you first ask two questions you know the answer to to verify the direction used for yes and no, for example, say out loud, "Am I 35? (in this example you are 40) obviously the answer would be no, so note the direction the agate is swinging (it will be circular). Then ask a question you know to be yes and note how it swings in the opposite direction. Note these directions.


Different Ways To Use Your Agate




Digestive Difficulties~Agate has been used for centuries to treat digestive disorders. The Ancient Greeks would hold a piece to the stomach to ease pains and diarrhea.

  • You can experiment using this Grecian method the next time you suffer from indigestion. Hold a piece of agate to your stomach if you are suffering  with pains or nausea, and allow the calming energy of the stone to suffuse your Sacral Chakra with its healing energy.

  • Agate's power comes from its ability to promote the circulation of energy around the body, which in turn encourages the digestion of food into energy. This speeds up the removal of unpleasant or distressing stomach pains caused by indigestion.



Soothing With Agate~Agate helps to induce a peaceful and calming atmosphere. It is an ideal healing crystal to use when you are practicing massage.
  • A smooth piece of agate, such as in the shape of an egg or sphere, can be used in a massage session. The stone is gently rolled over areas of muscular tension to help the person relax and to ease tension.

  • Agate is also good for relieving stiffness in the should and lower back muscles. This has the added benefit of helping the recipient to ground themselves and feel more connected to their body.

  • Agate is also good for calming the Brow Chakra


Moss Agate


For millenia, moss agate has been used as a talisman to help crops grow and to protect them from adverse weather conditions.

  • Place a piece of moss agate discreetly in your flower or vegetable garden and enhance its beneficial effects with this simple blessing ritual.

  • At the next new Moon, bless the moss agate with the elements,

  1. Incense (air)
  2. Red candle (fire)
  3. Water
  4. Earth
For each element recite this incantation:

"Power of the {element} bless this stone with your beneficial qualities to help my plants grow well".
  • Bury the moss agate close to the plants in your garden to improve your harvest.


Clearing Boundaries


A certain type of agate called fortification agate is very good for helping you to establish boundaries. If you have a problem with people taking advantage of you and intruding into your time and space - perhaps you find it difficult to say no - get some fortification agate.
  • Meditate by holding the agate in your hands and visualize your aura as an all-encompassing golden egg. See the edges clearly defined, forming a barrier between you and the outside world.

  • feel your inner strength grow and proclaim "I will not be influenced by others unless I decide it is for my benefit". Then carry the agate around with you to help you maintain your focus and newly found fortitude.

Sweet hope and comfort in her pains

The Power of Labradorite



The American philosopher and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson said of this stone, "A man is like a bit of Labradorite spar, which has no luster as you turn it in your hand  until you come to a particular Angle; then it shows deep and beautiful colors".

Indeed, labradorite's blue sheen, named "labradorescence", makes it one of the most attractive crystals.

Glimmers of green, red, and yellow may also be seen in some specimens, making labradorite a very attractive rainbow stone.

Labradorite can be blue-grey with black flecks or white in color, with both forms showing a beautiful blue sheen. Labradorite is associated with myths and deities that contain rainbows, such as the Greek iris, goddess of the rainbow, and the Bifrost Bridge, which linked a realm of the Norse Gods to Earth.



How Labradorite Got It's Name

Labradorite was named in 1770 when it was discovered in Labrador by missionaries. As is often the case, however, it had been used earlier. The mysterious Red Paint People of Main were using it before 1000BC and Pliny the Elder describes it in his writings.

Labradorite is also known as both labrador spar and labrador, while the particularly bright variety found in Finland is called spectrolite.

When a specimen shows green labradorescence, it is know as lynx sapphire. White pieces are often sold under the trade name of rainbow moonstone, despite not actually being moonstone, while transparent specimens of labradorite are often referred to as black moonstone.



How To Use Your Labradorite


For Protection~You can use labradorite to combat the problem of jealousy, which his common in most environments and groups of people. Use a stone to help the negativity bounce off you and protect you from distress. It is easily available in items of jewelry, which make excellent protective amulets.

  • When you are in your own space sing this piece of verse, "strong and happy, true and free, your jealousy will not touch me", and feel the energy that builds up as you sing, empowering your piece of labradorite.

  • Whenever you feel the negativity of jealousy near you, concentrate on a piece of labradorite and feel the stone's protective energy surrounding you like a force field, keeping you untouched by negative energy.



For Strengthening~Astral projection is a difficult skill to master, and it takes much practice before you will become competent at it. Labradorite can help you to master this process before you will become competent at it. Labradorite can help you to master this process by helping you strengthen your energy body (aura).

  • Hold a piece of labradorite or wear a piece of labradortie jewelry whenever you are working on your chakras, develop a link between your energy and the stone.

  • When you decide you want to try astral projection, the stone will act as a battery to help give you the energy and confidence to master the process. It will still take a lot of practice though!

 

For Magical Growth

Labradorite has many uses as a magical aid. A magic circle, within which spells can be cast, is often visualized as blue. Blue is also the color associated with the throat Chakra, which is in turn associated with magical power and dreaming.


  • A labradorite pendant worn around the neck can be useful in keeping the energies of the throat Chakra in balance and harmony.

  • When doing spells that involve singing or projecting your voice, wear your labradorite to help balance and amplify the energies you raise. This will help to strengthen the spell itself.

  • If you wear your pendant in public, be careful not to let anyone touch it. Eager hands may de-charge your stone in their desire to touch fascinating color around your neck.


Labradorite For Dream Recall


Labradorite is one of the best stones to use for dream recall. It can be seen as a "rainbow bridge" between the conscious and unconscious mind, helping your remember dream details.
  • Wear the labradorite or keep it under your pillow when you go to sleep, and when you wake hold it in your hand as you try to recall your dreams.


  • If you find yourself waking up in the night remembering your dreams, your labradorite might be having too powerful an effect on your sleep. Keep it under the pillow rather than wearing it or if it was under the pillow, move it to a dresser less close to you.

Moonstone



 


          
 Healing Properties


Moonstone honors the Goddess in all women. This stone helps women (and men) to be more comfortable with their gentler feminine/yin receiving side. This stone is also an excellent remedy for overly aggressive females or for men who need to connect to their more feminine/emotional side. Its connection to the moon has been documented for centuries.

Because of its shimmering, glossy nature its color plays off the light as does the moon. Like the moon as it waxes and wanes, this reflective stone allows us the lesson that everything is a part of the cycle of change. Moonstone is considered the stone of new beginnings. Moonstone is most famous for balancing our emotional states. Emotional states are connected to the water element, which are connected to the cycles of the moon and tides and therefore, has a strong relationship to a women's menstrual cycle. Therefore, moonstone is one of the best stones for soothing emotional stress and anxiety.

 Moonstone helps cool, soothe and calm over-reactions to emotional and personal situations. It allows us greater flexibility and flow with life. Moonstone has been used for protection against the perils of travel. It encourages a lust for life, a youthful attitude and helps us to become comfortable with the aging process and its transitions.
 Chakra Uses
Moonstone's emotional connection makes it most effective when placed at the 2nd or Sacral/Spleen Chakra. Known to be of ancient spiritual significance in its connection to the moon and the intuitive aspect of one's nature, the source of our intuition is often described as our "gut feeling" found at the Solar Plexus Chakra. This energy center deals with the human ego, emotions and self-power.

Placing moonstone on the solar plexus helps to show us our old emotional patterns which, we hold on to. It can be used to work on dissolving these patterns that no longer serve us. Although, the Third Eye Chakra is most associated with intuition, the "spark" is what is felt in the area of our solar plexus. This being the biggest nerve center in our body connected to almost all the organs. This is also where the connection between the three lower Chakra interchange with the four higher Chakra energy centers. Therefore, use moonstone to promote your intuitive and empathic nature. Use it also to encourage lucid dreaming, especially at the time of the full moon. It is the perfect stone for the Emotional Layer of the Aura.

Moonstone is a great stone for meditation and helping with unconditional love. Since it heightens our understanding of nature and concerns for the environment, it is an essential stone for agriculturists and farmers alike. Moonstone encourages creativity, imagination, inspiration and awareness. It also has been used throughout history to bring good luck.


 Folk Remedies

Moonstone promotes the stimulation and free flow of women's hormones and menstrual imbalances, as well as, better lymph circulation. Enhances the intuitive sensitivity via feelings and being less overwhelmed by personal emotions. Moonstone's effect upon the menstrual cycle and reproductive system is powerful. Its power over reproductive imbalance can be useful for situations such as helping to correct infertility and PMS. A gem essence tincture is recommended for fertility for both men and woman to drink over a long period of time. Consider moonstone for an easier pregnancy labor and childbirth. At the time of the full moon or menstruation, women should be aware of their sensitive emotional nature and remove this stone at the onset of her period.

 May help all parts of the lower torso, which include digestive, cleansing and reproductive organs. This stone is often given as a remedy in a gem essence for insomnia and prevents sleepwalking. Moonstone also stabilizes fluid imbalances and helps to re-set our circadian rhythm.
 Feng Shui
 Moonstone should be used in the Northwest corner for travel or in the Center area for grounding, balance, good health, spirituality and protection. Use in the West area for projects and creativity or in the Southwest for love (be sure and use two moonstone here).
 Crystal Cleansing
This stone can be cleansed and discharged of negative energy every month after the menstrual cycle is complete. Cleanse this stone by running it under warm water and charging it over night on a crystal cluster, preferably quartz, in a bowl of tumbled hematite or most beneficial is allowing it to be cleansed by the light of the full moon for 24-48 hours.
 History
 Moonstone K (Al Si3 O8) is a semi-translucent stone that is made of albite and orthoclase feldspar. The Arab countries would offer moonstone to large families to encourage fertility. To this day it is sown into women's night gowns or given to carry in their front pockets to promote fertility and smooth menstrual flow. The Chinese culture uses moonstone to balance the power of yin and yang for better health. The Romans saw moonstone as holding the image of the Goddess Diana, allowing its rule over the moon, mother and unconditional love!! The Romans used this stone to make beautiful jewelry, most often in cabochon form.

Jasper







    Healing Properties


     This stone is a methodical and meticulous worker of practical, down to earth solutions. It has the ability to foster and nurture and its energy is used for grounding and protection. Considered more effective if it is used for long periods of time because it works slowly. Each color of Jasper has additional, specific qualities when used alone. Jasper is very effective when use on the Root Chakra.





     Folk Remedies


    Jasper is a general tissue regeneration; mineral assimilation; and general healing. Darker colors are more grounding. Suggested to be used for elixirs because it will not over-stimulate any part of the body. Jasper works well in conjunction with Opals. Recommended for executives as an assist in quick thinking. Also helps them endure stress. Jasper can benefit most with direct contact to the skin.

    Feng Shui

     Jasper is used primarily anywhere to help bring change. Used in the Center for balance and grounding and in the West for children, in the Soutwest (as a pair) for relationships and in the East for community and family.


     Crystal Cleansing

    Jasper should be cleansed under luke warm water and recharged overnight in a bowl of quartz or hematite. Crystals react and energize by the light of the moon. The fuller the moon the more energized your crystal becomes. I would recommend your cleansing to be on or near the full moon so that the light can absorb into your crystal.
