When I first began my journey with the Stone Beings I looked outside my personal connection with them to “experts” to learn about them. I didn’t understand that my best teachers were right there with me – in the very relationship between myself and the Stone Beings. I didn’t trust myself. I didn’t trust what I was receiving as being real. I didn’t believe that I already had what I needed in order to place myself among the beautiful souls who worked with the Stone Beings far longer than this new comer. I didn’t realize that it was my very inexperience – the fact that I didn’t know very much about the stones – which allowed me to have such a deep connection with them. I hadn’t labeled them yet. I hadn’t formed any judgements yet. I was open to the stones as they were. It wasn’t until after I sought out the experts and read all the Crystal Healing books that I learned that I already had within me all that I needed to have beautiful connections with the stones. I learned that the best teachers were the stones themselves. I’m not saying that these expert opinions are not true or valid. They come from a very real connection with the stone beings. But they are just one very small part of what is there. They only skim the surface of a pool that runs so deep you’ll likely never see the bottom.
Having a connection with a stone being is not different than any relationship with any other being. You know that you can be a very different person depending on who you are with. Your boss or coworker may describe you completely differently than your best friend or spouse. Your children may be surprised to discover aspects of your character they never knew about, because they had a very specific view of who you are based on the kind of relationship they had with you. As no two people are exactly alike, each of our relationships is unique. So if you believe, as I do, that the stone beings are conscious beings, then it won’t be hard to believe that each of these stone beings has their own unique character and they may reveal different parts of themselves to different people, depending on the relationship that develops.
Sure it may seem to be easier to choose a stone based on the metaphysical qualities you find in a book. Though even that might become confusing if you look at more than one book – because they each have their own opinions. But truly what could be easier than choosing the stone that you are most drawn to, despite whether, according the the book you’re reading, it will serve your specific purpose – or match up with your astrological sign. Besides, the best relationships happen through a type of magic that defies the mind’s linear reasoning.
How can we be so open to the magic of the stone beings and yet be so pulled into linear, logical reasons when choosing them and connecting with them. I’ll tell you why. Because it is easier to follow the book than to trust our own inner wisdom. We were raised in a world that convinced us not to trust ourselves – from our basic material needs to our deepest physical, emotional and spiritual well being. We’re taught to ignore our own inner knowings and seek out the experts. It doesn’t seem to phase us that these experts change their opinions on an hourly basis.
We can seek out the Stone Beings for what they can do for us … for what they can heal in us … for what benefit they can bring to us. At the deepest level, a true connection with the Stone Beings is about a relationship. About being with a wise soul who in their very presence supports us in seeing something beautiful within ourselves. It is like the difference between being with someone for what they can do for you – or being with a close friend because you cherish their company. Both are very real experiences that offer us something. One heals on the surface while the other penetrates deep into our core and shifts our whole being. One is fleeting – the other eternal. There is no right or wrong here. There is no judgement – especially from the Stone Beings. It is about choice … about what type of experience you wish to have. What kind of relationship you are wanting to enter into.
There is a magnitude of information on the metaphysical properties of Crystals. It was at first my intent to list all the types of crystals and their metaphysical properties here for you to have easy access to. But then I realized that I could use this space to give you something far more valuable. I could show you how to discover these qualities for yourself. In doing so you could unlock the many other hidden secrets of the stone beings that are not written about in any of the Crystal Books.
I invite you to discover something that you will not find in anywhere else. Come see for yourself how to listen to the Stone Beings. In listening to their song, you will learn to listen to yourself … and that is the greatest gift that they offer.
