April is Aries’ month and Diamond is one of its flashier zodiac stones. But a Herkimer Diamond is more appropriate for grids and crystal healing or metaphysical work than a tiny diamond. It is excellent for opening the third eye, clarifying perception and connecting to the highest spiritual levels. It contains a crystal memory into which information can be poured for later retrieval. In its larger form, Herkimers create a protective grid around you. Two Herkimer Diamonds can be programmed to enhance telepathy between partners.
Essential for layouts in areas of electromagnetic or geopathic stress or disturbed earth energy, Herkimers block negativity and transmute it to positivity. A layout of Herkimers clears the chakras in minutes. Smoky Herkimers are excellent healing for both your own earth chakra and the Earth itself and the Golden-yellow Herkimers ones are brilliant cleansers and regenerators, especially when they contain oil from the Himalayas or iron. These are excellent for restoring vitality.
hen the lovely John van Rees posted that Exquisite Crystals now have the beautiful and very rare Blue Halite I was so excited. I just had to share it with you immediately. It is so gorgeous and so very cleansing. I have one piece that I treasure. It’s the perfect stone for March and Pisces.
Here’s what John says about it: Metaphysical uses for Halite include:
I would add that the Blue variety is excellent for cleansing the higher chakras, especially the causal vortex, soma and alta major (see Crystal Prescriptions 4 if you are unfamiliar with these.
Halite is a salt mineral and should not be cleansed in water as it will dissolve.
The supply is limited so buy yours now.
Preseli Bluestone is the ancient stone of memory and dreaming which forms the inner ring at Stonehenge. It can take you back into your past lives to find the gifts you’ve given yourself that are waiting to be reclaimed. Holding this stone when journeying opens a cosmic anchor and attaches you to the earth’s core. This unique British stone spiritually links to Merlin energy and the shaman in us all. Size matters with Bluestone! It is highly paramagnetic and you may need to turn the stone or yourself to align with its polarities. A small piece is exceedingly intense and larger pieces may need to be moved out of a bedroom at night to avoid over-stimulation.
Wind Fossil Agate teaches that you are an eternal incarnated soul who just happens to be on a human journey this time. It assists with the process of soul scouring, clearing away karmic encrustations, beliefs and emotional baggage both from your own past and that of the ancestors. It carries the power of the Karma of Grace that says that, when sufficient work has been carried out, then the soul can let go, and is no longer bound by karma.
This stone literally sinks down through the layers of the past to reach the core going right down to the collective level. Ancestralite clears the ancestral line of trauma, dramas, ingrained emotions and imperatives that have passed down the family line for generations. At the same time it preserves the soul learning so that it can be incorporated into present and future actions. Ancestralite assists lineage breakers to cut the past, so that toxic karmas and attitudes do not carry forward into future generations. It literally says: ‘the buck stops here. It’s up to you so get on with it. Now!’ It also cauterises the etheric body, clearing the imprint of that karma and its effect on the present life body. It is particularly useful when a parent needs to put down feeling overly responsible for a child who was ill or in any way disabled during childhood but who has now grown to adulthood. The stone assists in standing on your own two feet.
In scrying, Ancestralite facilitates in accessing and reading the Akashic Records. But there is much more to learn about this most ancient of stones that connects past, present and future to the eternal now. Ancestralite was created from a stromatolite structure (fossil algae colony) that oxygenated the atmosphere for a few hundred million years before other life was able to exist. But the presence of Martite ( a Hematite pseudomorph of Magnetite) suggests that the rock got buried at a later date and underwent other chemical processes, as the process by which Martite forms happens deep in the earth’s core. As can be seen from its sparkles and speckles, this stone has pure star material within it. It takes you back to before creation began. So this stone is a perfect example of the birth, death and rebirth process.
The Cradle of Humankind stone comes from Magaliesberg, South Africa. It is a product of the archaeological excavations taking place at a spot where the oldest human and protohuman fossils are being found. It’s not a particularly pretty stone, very basic looking grey, black or white with the occasional brown. But that’s exactly right given its purpose is to strip you back to basics and help you rebuild yourself. The stone not only shows you what you need to release, but it also shows you how much of other people’s energy you still have in your own energy field and it helps you to release that. It shows what is stuck in your DNA and needs to be moved out so that you can switch on beneficial DNA and move on from family patterns clearing out clearing out ‘stuck energy residue’. It is a missing piece of the ancestral healing puzzle. In this context, the ancestral line is not only your own family tree but that of all humanity and the planet.
The stone also has a profound and very deep link to Gaia and all that is stored in the DNA of Mother Earth.
