Day 1: Personal Homework
raw vs polished
I would like you to find two stones… of one variety. If you have the required stones around your home, by all means work with them. If not, plan a day to go to a place that carries stones as gifts… lepidiaries… metaphysical gift shops… truck stops… you’d be surprised where I’ve found some of my most powerful stones. Oh and of course out side finds… but for this assignment you want one polished and one raw… of the same type of stone. Pictured here are citrine pieces.
First hold the raw version of the stone in your left hand. Feel. Breath. Put it down, and repeat the same experience with the polished stone. Which stone held more power for you?
Each Person is different. Personally, most of the time I am drawn to the raw, before a human manipulated the energy. If I use polished, it most likely is because I have a connection to the person who gave it to me. So, the bottom line is everyone has a preference. So feel it out and see which one carries the vavavoom for you… then proceed.
Part 2: Stone Power
Tracking with stones not only is about relationships, it’s also about healing. Utilizing stones, on different nights, select the one you found more powerful and do a check on your body. Got any sore spots, stuck energies?
Hold your stone to where you feel out of sorts. Rub it lightly if you feel like it. Lightly - don’t break the skin or cause bruising. Learn that your stones, next to your life choices, are the most powerful healing tools available to you.
Okay, five minutes later, how are you feeling?
What I am suggesting here is that all the tools you ever need, in any and every situation are available to you in nature. As assistants, stones are representative of all time existent. To begin, we needed to invite relationship that we feel confident in. Second, we have to speak clearly and ask for clarity in return (this means, in a way that is understandable to you).
We’ll talk about your experiences in class, and of course, bring questions and we’ll do what we can to answer them
