I’m not quite sure where to begin. When I was a child we had a huge World Atlas that was nearly front to back pictures and drawings. It had sea creatures I had never heard of and don’t hear much about these days. These are mollusks, crustaceans, and fish that dwell in places like the Marianas Trench at depths requiring a submarine. We saw a few of those after the Tsunami that stuck the Indian Ocean on the day after Christmas in 2004.

These are stones that correspond with chakras 7 (Quartz) to 1(Rhodonite).
Chakra is a Sanskrit word essentially meaning “Wheel,” these are thought to be energy centers, points, or nodes in the “subtle” body. (Think conscious vs sub or unconscious mind as an analogy). Certain crystals, and other things in nature function at different frequencies and can help realign the wheels. How long it takes to realign them depends on the person. I recommend meditation, contemplation, prayer, patience, and study as those are what I am doing.
As far as resources go, these are the books I am working with at present:
- Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self by Anodea Judith
- The Book of Stones, Revised Edition: Who They Are and What They Teach by Robert Simmons
- The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall
If you’d like to grab a few stones to get started, I’d recommend starting with one from each category, depending on color:
- White: Clear or Snow Quartz.
- Violet: Amethyst.
- Blue: Lapis Lazuli or Sodalite
- Green/Pink: Green Aventurine or Rose Quartz
- Yellow: Citrine, Yellow Quartz
- Orange: Tiger’s Eye, Carnelian
- Red/Black: Hematite, Obsidian, Rhodonite, Red Jasper
Try to find a store locally to buy them or shop online.
I cannot overemphasize that this all has to do with intuition and intent. It is not at all what I’d call my main area of expertise. I had very little art or music training. I was one of many kids on what I call the “engineering track” in school. Therefore my left brain has always been a bit overactive. I am working to adjust that.
This is how we used to do things long ago. It’s old knowledge, desperately needed in post-modern times. The ways of doing things of the last couple of centuries are just not working, and I have to wonder if they’ve ever “worked.” We need a return to who we were as a people before the corruption of money and state.
