I am re-connecting with my relationship with rocks and crystals. I have been making wire wraps for various stones in my care, and the above image is created from a photo I took yesterday of the sun shining onto the Besparmak Mountains.
For me, there is an energy and power in mountains – I can see faces, images and energetic beings. The above is my inner image of the magic of mountains, so often overlooked because we’re taught to see rocks, mountains and stones as lifeless things to be used, without realising how we are upsetting the balance in our relationship with the planet which supports and nurtures us.
It’s my belief that the rise in the popularity of crystal healing and the availability of a wide-ranging array of crystals, rocks and stones is a shamanic calling from these earth energies to humanity to recall our connection with the natural world and our responsibility to co-create with the energies that surround us.
When we work with crystal healing, we are not simply healing ourselves, we are aligning ourselves with the planet to effect healing on the wider world around us. In the words of Rachel Pollack, in her book on her Tarot deck, The Shining Tribe: “To truly Know Stone means to transcend the illusion of a separation between Spirit and the material world.”
