Day 3: Personal Homework
One of the ways I have found stones to be most beneficial has been in gifting them. Think about it. Friends and family love to receive rocks. Not only does it provide a unique healing opportunity, but it can be extended far beyond our immediate circle. The message and the unique energy of gifting in good intention provides us with an extra boost to enable more far-reaching efforts in global healing. It also brings untold gifts into play in our life that might never have happened without our service gifting.
This is fun, but you’ll need to have a bag of stones, or pocket full of rocks that have asked to be gifted. You’ll know this by holding them and asking. Once you have a goodly number (we’ll start with five), you’re gonna go to work. I want you to gift one stone a day to a human being. The first four will to people you know. Keep notes on
1) Who did you give it to?
2) What stone did you give them, if you know, otherwise a brief description of it and its energy
3) Look at our calendar. What is the energy of the day?
4) How DID THEY REACT? How did you feel?
The explanation for the gift… “It’s for good luck.” That’s all you tell them.
The fifth stone you will give to someone you don’t know. Keep the same notes. If you’ve ever been out to dinner with me, you’ve seen me leave rocks as part of our tip. This is only one way that you can gift to someone you don’t know.
The continuation of this exercise is to gift a total of 13 stones. So, pick the rest of your stones, and then open the doorway for who will receive them. These last 8 can go to whoever, known or unknown.
Once this is complete, let’s grab five more stones. Take them to your favorite place in nature. Lay the first four to the directions and the last one to center.

Carry some tobacco, pollen, or cornmeal with you. Draw a circle around the configuration. When it is don, tell Mom out loud, that you love her. Then smile and watch and see what she sends your way to tell you that she loves you too!
This last gifting helps strengthen the threads on the Wheel of Life/Sacred Hoop… we mend the Mother. It’s a tapestry stitch. I started doing this when I was six and continue to this day.
And finally, is our water healing going to a source of live water. We are snake clan and snake clan are the callers of the water. The Dragon is the guardian of fresh waterways, and we are one. Sing an Honoring Song or Love Song from your heart. Blow a kiss into the Stone and toss it into the water. Again, watch what comes, not only as confirmation, but gratitude that overflows your heart.
Write a little on these experiences. Do you think you might incorporate any of these practices into your daily regime? Why?
We’ll talk about your findings in our next class
