Talismanic Adornment

At the most basic level, stone is the fabric of the earth, and

as such is a symbol of the everlasting.

The anthropomorphic view of the world sees stones and rocks

as the bones of Mother Earth.

They are the fundamental structure that supports all other aspects

of physical existence of earlier life~forms.

Talismanic Jewelry for the Goddess within

Most of what we now call jewelry had it’s origins steeped in magic from ancient times. They were once called amulets, charms and talismans and thought to have magical protective qualities. Stones that were considered to be protective, powerful, healing and sacred, were used as charms for thousands of years by all social classes.

For those of us who create talismanic jewelry, there is often a presence of something beyond our understanding, an awareness, a connection with a deep and primal energy resting just below the surface of the stones and metals we work with.

A beautiful synergy, connectedness happens as we combine gemstones, crystals, sea shells, feathers, bones and other magical, unexpected components together to create one of a kind pieces for ourselves and friends.

I have a few favorite pieces of jewelry that I wear and change out with the seasons and lunar tides. Whether I use them as a form of prayer or protection, they hold stories and special meaning for me, and have become part of my journey. I also create additional pieces for others to enjoy.

Among countless stones, one stone becomes saturated with

being because it constitutes a hierophany, or possesses mana,

or again because it commemorates a mythical act.

Favorite Stones For May

My Favorite healing stones for May ~ Stones can help us to reconnect to the healing power of the earth. They engage us with their beauty and mystery, and bring a little magic back into our lives. They can be worn as jewelry or used for meditation and healing. Here are just a few of my favorites . . .

Baltic Amber ~ is a resin, which has been used throughout the centuries as a natural traditional remedy and curative for many physical and spiritual ailments. When Baltic Amber is worn in direct contact with your skin,  the warmth of your body releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin. The Ancient Celts valued Amber for it’s beauty, protection and healing properties.

Amber is excellent for helping the body to heal itself. It can also be used to cleanse the environment of negative energy. Amber helps clear the mind, balance the emotions and eases stress by removing energetic ties that create stagnation and blockages in the chakras. It’s warm golden light  infuses your body with healing and helps transform negative energy  into positive energy.

 

 

 

 

 

“Amber is like a time capsule made and placed in the earth by nature herself.” ~  David Federman

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carnelian ~ is a variety of Chalcedony that was worn in ancient times for strengthening the blood, health and fertility.  It also helps to assists us in stimulating the first four chakras and increase physical power, creativity and compassion.  Wearing Carnelian  is said to provide protection against the evil eye of negativity and bring hope and good luck. Also believed to be a powerful stimulant of Kundalini energy. Ancient Egyptians used Carnelian as a source of renewal and vitality

“That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means that we are less alone, that we are more deeply inserted into existence than the course of a single life would lead us to believe.” ~ John Berger

Pink Kunzite ~ Kunzite is variety of mineral Spodumene. Mineral Spodumene comes in pink to bluish purple, green, yellow, colorless, blue and other colored varieties, typically light in tone. The pink to bluish purple colored stones are called Kunzite. Medium to pale green stones are called as hiddenite and yellow ones are known as triphane.

Kunzite activates and opens the heart chakra to the energies of Divine Love for all beings, and promotes the impulse towards kindness and altruistic behavior.The soft energy of Kunzite helps one to release energy blocks associated with the heart chakra and enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Kunzite is often suggested for sensitive children or those who are affected by the collective energy of crowds, and may help soften the impact of being exposed to harsh or negative people. Kunzite  is a protective stone and is said to provide a protective barrier around the aura when worn as a necklace or ring.

Each variety of Kunzite shares the fundamental properties, as well as the additional specific ones.

Clear Kunzite ~ Assists one in soul retrieval work ~ facilitating the journey back to the moment of the soul loss and may be used as the receptacle for the soul until it is reintegrated into the body.

Yellow kunzite ~ is good for protecting and shielding you from harmful man-made electrosmog~ cell phones, computers and  microwaves. Wear a pendant, necklace or place a piece near  your  computer or other electronics.

Lilac kunzite ~ helps assist one in Ancestral healing work by healing and transforming energetic patterns that do not serve your highest good or distract you from carrying out your life’s purpose. It also helps those who are transitioning to connect with the infinite. Highly recommended for those who are caregivers.

“Ancestral healing is a  shamanic practice that helps one to heal their ancestors’ unresolved emotional and spiritual issues, problems or trauma. It also assists in releasing any energetic patterns that link you to them ~ patterns that may have an inhibiting or a disruptive influence on your life today.”

Green kunzite ~ is also known as hiddenite. it can be used to assists us with gaining knowledge from higher realms.  It also helps an individual release and heal any feelings associated with failure. ~ It may also be used as a pendulum to identify any energy fluctuations and remove any blockages in the chakras. Hiddenite also supports the thymus gland and the heart chakra area.

 

Blue Kyanite ~ Aligns and cleanses all the chakras and subtle bodies automatically and immediately, and is one of the few stones that never needs cleaning or clearing. It also opens the throat chakra~  encouraging communication and self-expression. Best when worn near the throat chakra. ~ A stone known to enhance tranquility, calmness, as well as communication and psychic awareness. Kyanite is a tool for meditation, visualization, dream work and one of the best for use as an attunement stone.

 

 

Black Kyanite ~ used for removing negative energy and assists one when working with  spirit guides, shamanic journeying and ancestral healing work. Helps remove stagnant energy from the root chakra and bring it back into balance. When placed on any of the chakras, it will help repair any tears or holes in the chakras and the aura.

 

Black Kyanite is often used to explore past lives and also used for grounding and protection. It is believed to assists us in keeping open the lines of communication between people, helping us to resolve  issues of conflict and misunderstanding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Stone, maybe more than any other material, has been known forever to be magical, to have powers to heal, guide, house divinity, and mark places of burial. Altars are usually of stone, as are temples, oratories, and sometimes houses. Rock gardens invite meditation, and stone walls, a common sight in New England, do more than mark boundaries; they evoke memories of the people who once lived on this land of ours and give rise to speculation about early visitors from Europe and ritual megaliths and dolmens. ~ Thomas Moore ~ Quote from the book “The Re-Enchantment  of Everyday Life.”


“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” – Rose Arizmendi


Rose Quartz ~ Heart Chakra

I love rose quartz . . . the soft shades of pink and the gentle way light plays across it’s surface.

Rose Quartz ~ is a beautiful stone that soothes the eyes and spirit. Whether you like using it for the healing properties or just because you find them attractive ~  there is something about them that makes one feel peaceful.

Rose Quartz, Kunzite and Watermelon-tourmaline are used to help balance and align the heart chakra, they are the heart chakra trinity stones that I prefer to use.  In order to bring the most beneficial energies to your body’s energy system try wearing rose quartz near your heart meridian.

If you are a alternative healing practitioner you may want to also wear labradorite with the rose quartz  as it deflects unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage.

Kunzite ~ is a high level stone that strengthens the auras of spiritual healers and teachers and is one of the few stones, which can align the seven chakras within a twenty-four hour period.

The heart chakra governs the heart, blood circulation, respiratory system, thymus gland as well as your shoulders, arms and hands. Anahata also governs compassion, kindness, tenderness and unconditional love for self and others.

I think of crystals and stones as another form of medicine from the earth and encourage people to purchase their own stones instead of having someone else select them. As in all things trust your heart and let your intuition guide you.

Crystals and stones when combined with other forms of spiritual and natural healing modalities give us another way of reconnecting with ourselves and mother earth.

“Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones – maybe only the stones understood.” ~ Annie Dillard

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” – Rose Arizmendi

Heart Chakra

Anahata Chakra

The emerald is a power stone, which helps to balance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies, neutralizing any energy blockages in the fourth Chakra area.

I often use a raw emerald stone for opening or activating the Heart Chakra, and also use it to balance and protect the Heart Chakra.

It is an excellent stone for healers who may occasionally take on their clients issues, and a good choice for those in the ‘healing profession’, like Doctors, Nurses, Counselors, and Psychiatrists.

The emerald promotes serenity, healing, clarity, tranquility, harmony and love.

A friend of mine refers to it as “the stone of healing and hope”. I rather like that!

“All healing is first a healing of the heart.”
