Welcome to another week of Mystic Monday. Let’s kick this week off by going over some dates.
Tuesday August 6th is the New Moon. Remember the New Moon is for releasing things in your life that no longer serve your highest good. No good boyfriend or girlfriend. Not only did you kick his/her butt to the curb but now you need to kick their energy ties to and this is the night that’s most powerful to cut ties. But, if you are letting go of a loved one remember to do it out of love and not anger. You don’t want that anger karma to come around and bite you in the hind end when you least expect it. Worried about bills or your job? Again, this is the best night to release all that worry and fear for your highest good.
If you are following the Celtic Tree Calendar, Monday August 5th begins the Month of Hazel. This tree energy will help you connect to Mother Earth and help you with personal growth.
Okay, with that out of the way, let’s get on with this Monday’s topic.
Let’s talk Stones and Energy.
If you are going to start working with stones I highly recommend the book, “Love is in the Earth” by Melody. This is one reference book I purchased in 1998 and I can’t live without it because I keep coming back to it for all sorts of information about crystals and stones for healing and energy work. What I love is, the index is broken down by issue or thing that you want to work on and then it lists all the pages that contain stones that can help you with the problem. Now, the other thing I love about this book is she includes your zodiac sign with the stone. So to make the energy more powerful, you look up what you need help with and then make sure the stone is under your birth sign. LOVE IT!
Now, I choose my stones by
1. What it is I’m working on,
2. Is there a color that is related to the issue I’m working on because if there is I will use a stone that is of that color, and
3. How the stone feels when I hold it in my hand. I always recommend you hold stones for a few minutes before you purchase them so you can really get a feel for their energy and make sure it’s a good fit for you. Then I will look to see if the stone falls under my sign. But, I don’t limit my choice of stone based on my sign.
Okay, so what are some things to look for?
Red stones will help you with Root charka issues. Your root chakra helps keep you connecting to the Earth. So grounding your energy, basic survival needs along with feeling secure, family and controlling fear.
Orange stones will help with issues such as reproductive problems, intestinal problems and issues with creativity, just to name a few.
Yellow stones will help with self-esteem and stomach problems, etc.
Green stones will help you with healing your energy and releasing blocks. Because green is associated with the heart chakra, green stones can help with circulatory issues.
Blue stones will help you with communications and speaking your truths. Blue is the color of the throat chakra, so any issues with the throat can be helped with blue stones.
Purple stones will help you connect with your higher-self and wisdom.
White will help you connect with spirit and crown chakra.
Now, I use stones to place on the chakras, coordinating the colors with the charkas. I also use stones in a grid around the body to help during meditations or healings. So start doing some research and find out what it is you need help with and want to use stones with, and then go shopping.
Remember though to clear the stones before you use them.
More to come in the weeks ahead!
Have a great week.
