over the weekend i took a crystal grid-making class. i learned sacred shapes, most productive forms, and combinations of stones that can help emphasis specific goals.
what i learned this weekend, besides some solid grid techniques and patterns, is how much i love apophyllite and calcite rock families. apophyllite always follows me around, and now i recognize how wonderful this is! it’s guiding me, offering me love and protection in my physical and astral space. what a gift! as for calcites, i appreciate the texture and the array of colors. it’s such a balancing stone family, that there is a calcite for pretty much anything.
as i sit at my desk, i have my main three (as of recently) that i carry: nuumite (new!—and so necessary), astrophyllite (remembering why he’s so important about synchronicities and positive fortune), and moldavite (my love). they are helping me work on me daily, and make new strides. since moldavite has entered my life in january the progress i have made is staggering. but now it’s getting to the root of what challenges i continue to clear out so that i can be the open, communicative, good person i want to be—for now, and for life. being a good person means recognizing the value and importance of one’s self so that you can be fully engaged in the world around you. from relationships, to plants, to work, to the future, and the guide of understanding history so that mistakes can be remedied or prevented. i want to feel connected synergistically to all that’s around me, and share a gift of loyalty and kindness to those i encounter. in order to do that, i have to clear out bad patterns that trap myself in the same mistakes. time to put on my adult pants and clearly identify and deal with the problems so that i move forward.
Next to me on my work desk is a strong circle grid anchored in the center with this rosy, nearly completely opaque carnelian. around it from 12 o’clock clockwise: a hunk of rose quartz at the top, blue/green dendritic agate, my professional citrine, a shard of datalite that i love, my untumbled lapis, and finally, clear calcite. what do you think of this combination?
