Hello friends! I have a treat of a post coming for you tonight or tomorrow, but for today I wanted to share a little about this blue beauty of a stone. I think I'm going to share more listings. It is a good way to let you know what's new, but also to share a little gemstone knowledge.
It may surprise many of you to know how much of a skeptic I am. In fact, it may surprise you if you heard the language that comes out of my mouth when it comes to the mass marketing as "high vibration" of certain man-made "stones". Not that I don't think they may have value in some ways (color magic), but I resent the idea that people are paying high amounts for what is simply pretty glass marketed as special. A good example of this is Andara. Let's face it, it's glass and not natural glass...it is man-made and colored glass and people are making thousands of dollars passing it off as a real mystical magical "only for special people" healing crystal. Ugh. I'm energetically hurling all over the room.
OK, I got off track! Are you surprised? Stick around, because I haven't even begun to show the ways I can get off track!
So, let's get back to the blue beauty. Blue Aragonite. This is a natural stone, though sometimes it arrives on the market dyed to enhance color.
I appreciate the value of gemstone bibles as manuals, but always know that I write my own descriptions for stones based on my experiences. Stones work differently for different people which should not come as a surprise! I love discovering an aspect of what a stone offers and my work with blue aragonite feels important.
Here is a description lifted right out of the listing in my shop. Sadly, I only have one piece of this lovely left, but I feel it is good to get the information out and about!
If you are hurt, lonely, sad and feeling lost it is like pulling into a gas station for directions and having someone say, "I'm going there now, follow me."
The lines from O Holy Night sum up the gifts this stone can help you tap into.
"A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel's voices".
Gratitude, recovery, love, starting over...it is all there...and the energy to do it is there too.
Blue Aragonite can help you finally see the lifeboat when you've spent more time than you care to think about feeling pushed under water. It is a guiding hand...it helps you look up and away from any situation causing you stress or pain and pluck up one of many lifelines being offered...you must realize...they are not invisible or new. You never saw them before now.
There is a certain of reverence we should have when we witness miracles in our lives. A moment to literally drop down, shed some tears and whisper, "Thank you, thank you, thank you" even for the smallest things. We know when we are in the pits of despair or heartbreak how the tiniest thing can help us up...a gesture, a note, a kiss on the forehead.
This stone is that kiss, this stone is the St. Bernard with the brandy after an avalanche and hours under snow. Basically...morning has broken.
WOW! Do you see why I wanted to share?
Speaking of sharing...stay tuned for some sharing this weekend and for right now....just a little reminder that on a clear day you really can see forever. I see this view every day...Oh Lake Michigan blue, take me away!
I wish I could show you...
when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.
