I continue to teach my Level 1 class from the School of Earth Centered Healing.  It’s been a nice steady pace of students participating in the Energetics of Self Care.  In this class I enjoy teaching people how to play with stones and rocks, in order to find a deeper healing connection.

It always amazes me at how often people will tell me that they have no experience in working with the energy of rocks or crystals, but later on in conversation they mention they have rocks all over their house.  And so it begins… the opening of a doorway to working with and communicating with crystal energy.

It’s all quite playful, as healing doesn’t need to be so serious that it blocks our ability to lighten up.  As we form relationships in unique ways to the stone kingdom, we find that working with energy beings is really easier than we thought.  I’m always learning something new from them.

I find that it has been helpful to have a guide to the energetic properties of stones, but these  are only guides and cannot articulate the complex characteristics incorporated into each stone.  I have kept a running list of the metaphysical properties of stones, and add on to this list as I find a new stone or a new aspect of its energy to add in.  I can’t possibly remember all this information, so having a list with my own notes and experiences helps my healing work.

I also use dowsing to help me determine what stones I will use for a particular issue.  At times, stones do speak to me, or I get clear messages from my guides to indicate which stones I should be working with.  Other times I grab the pendulum and start asking.  If it is a particular issue, I may look up that issue in my guide list, gather up the stones in my collection that fit that particular issue and begin dowsing to see which of my personal stones I should be working with.  A brilliant example of this just manifested itself and seemed like a good one to share.

So for various reasons, sleep has been an issue for me this past week.  I had been working with a student that day, and in the evening I found myself picking up the various stones we had played with. I was going to clear them all to make sure the energy of each was purified.  I had used a particular piece of calcite and just because I was drawn to it, I looked up its properties and found that it could aid in restful sleep.  So I decided to create a crystal healing pouch to aid me in having a deep restful and restorative sleep.  I looked up a few more stones, began clearing all the stones and then dowsed to see which stones would be most helpful in working with my intention.  Since I had a clear intent, I knew my dowsing would reveal which stones would carry the proper vibrations to aid in my rest.

I dowsed four stones to work with me – white calcite, honey calcite, blue lace agate and amethyst.  Each stone carries unique properties that  corresponded with issues I had been experiencing.  I made sure to program these stones with my intent, placed them in a pouch and slipped that under my pillow about a half hour before going to bed.  I then slept for a solid 8 hours, without interruption.  It had been at least a week since I had had such a lovely uninterrupted rest and I was grateful.

These particular stones may not work for someone else’s sleep issues.  There can be a variety of factors that may be impacting insomnia, and if I just researched my list for all the stones that  help with sleep issues, I might not have gotten the same results.  That’s where dowsing and paying attention to the intuitive knowing comes in.  Be as clear as possible with your healing intention and then ask for the appropriate healing stones to be revealed.

The stone/crystal kingdom want to connect and aid humans in our quest for higher consciousness.  One lesson they teach me, is that the activity of play is necessary in our development.
