THE STONE MEDICINE:
In traditional thought, Turquoise unites the earth and sky, bringing together male and female energies. Turquoise is a stone of “earth-grounding” and is valuable in preventing one from losing touch with the conscious mind during deep meditations. It provides strength and protection. Did you know that it is said that turquoise connects with its owner and will grow pale in color if the wearer becomes ill, sometimes losing all color if the wearer passes away, only to regain color when worn again by a new, healthy owner.
Jet Stone has the ability to draw out the negative energies that are lingering in your auric fields. It will help you let go of unwanted thoughts and emotions and steer your focus to the things that truly matter.
Opal is a delicate stone with fine but vibrant energies. It’s a stone that will enhance your cosmic consciousness and strengthen your mystical and psychical visions.
The energies of this stone will also encourage you to express your true self. You will feel confident and comfortable in your own skin, and this will radiate in your words, thoughts, and actions.
