Crystals and Other Objects

Dirt so hard and pure, it becomes a playground for light.

Crystals are playgrounds for light, bits of frozen fire.

And yet they are only rocks.

 

h the big machines cut canyons in the earth. There's nothing there but rocks, stones, sand, and gravel -- primordial clodlike stuff, the rawest of raw materials, good only for being made into more interesting things.

And yet. When God made the first human being, he chose to make him from this same dull matter. Maybe there's a secret here.

Nature knows all about it. She takes lumps of this stuff, this most lowly of all materials in her palette, and congeals them to perfection. Makes them so hard, so pure, they become playgrounds for light.

We call them crystals, and they fascinate.

heart of the planet, she takes a clump of this same stuff and congeals it to perfection. Makes it so hard, so pure, it becomes a playground for light.

 

 

 

took a look at your newest addition. Looks great. I think it is terrific of you to promote both of them. Metaforms are used to achieve greater understanding of Self. They offer many types, which do different things. As I have previously stated, I own 2. I have the Aquarian Pyramid hanging over my head as I sit at my computer. This one aids in raising the energies of crystals and oils, aligning the chakras as well as metaphysical studies and the like. The other is a Star Tetrahedron. This one was my primary purpose for purchase. After reading Nothing In This Book Is True, by: Bob Frissel (have you read this book?), I wanted a deeper understanding of our own power and the Merkaba energies. It also help me to visualize myself in one as I meditate. This particular metaform is used for creation and manifestation. This is long winded to get to, maybe list a couple of types and explain the benefits. Rosleys Rock Shop, has an incredible selection of healing, meditation, etc. You could possibly offer an explanation of different stones, and suggest to readers when they purchase from their favorite retailer, don't purchase based on what a particular stone offers, purchase based what feels good or looks good, as that is most likely what you need. The chakra bracelets are all made by hand, by the owner. He uses 7 stones in chakra order 4 times and can set a ruby in the center. They are a work of art as well as being beneficial. He travels all over the country participating in health shows, which is how I met him. I was assisting a friend in her booth on Visual cell screening. Hope this was helpful... Karen

 

Crystals fill the world with grace,
put smiles onto every face,
although I wrote these words in haste,
they're only here to fill up space.
