OBSIDIAN is the result of volcanic lava coming in contact with water. Often the lava pours into a lake or ocean and is cooled quickly. This process produces a glassy texture in the resulting rock. Iron and magnesium give the obsidian a dark green, brown or black colour. Obsidian has been used by ancient people as a cutting tool, for weapons, and for ceremonial purposes and is sometimes found by archaeologists in excavations. Obsidian is a strongly protective stone, forming a shield against emotional negativity. It grounds you to the earth through the base chakra and strengthens you in times of need. It is helpful to highly sensitive people. It blocks psychic attack and removes negative spiritual influences. Black Obsidian helps you uncover unconscious thoughts and patterns that inhibit your spiritual growth. Thes patterns can contribute to addiction, abusive behaviour, negativity, scarcity and other undesirable traits. This stone will point out where you are holding these patterns and assists in clearing them from the auri field and cellular memory.
Black Obsidian is perfect for grounding and keeping you focused. If you have a tendency to be easily distracted or off centre, use this stone to keep your mind on the task at hand. It is also beneficial for maintaining a positive outlook by keeping negative thoughts at bay.
MOOKAITE crystal stone meaning has long been associated with royalty, particularly during medieval times. In fact, a polished Mookaite stone set in gold was the favorite bling among lords and ladies from the days of old. Its meaning can be traced back as far as the 12th century to the life and times of German mystic and healer Hildegard of Bingen. Her tonic for easing insomnia and nervous tension was simple but legendary: a Mookaite crystal stone soaked in wine. More recently, the Mookaite is a favorite to include in healing layouts because it represents the earth element, making it a stable and grounding complement to other stones.
AMETHYST in the psychic and spiritual realms, is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality, enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It does this by making a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is known to open one's channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work, and protects one from thieves, and protects travelers.
DRUZY CRYSTALS have many tiny crystals like a "skin" of sparkly crystals. Druzy usually grew originally over another crystal or matrix, though they may not be attached to it currently. Occasionally they are floater clusters with no attachment previously to a matrix. Light and joy are brought to an environment or ritual by a Druzy Cluster. As a type of Crystal Cluster they also bring harmony to groups. They have energy that is especially helpful for Spiritual worship and Lightwork. Like other types of clusters, they can empower the energy of other crystals and stones.
ELK TOTEM - The male Elk is called a bull and is seen as the king of the forest. The female Elk is called a cow and is seen as the muse. It has the ability to bring inspiration, intuition and magic needed by the male which he uses as a source of his strength and faith in order to fulfill the vision of the herd. Meditating on the Elk means honor, respect, and positive self-image. Choosing the Elk as your animal totem means you only want nothing but the best. Elks believe in themselves. Sometimes, they are torn between their personal life and their career. One of the most important meanings we can find in the Elk is its stamina. It’s no secret that Elks are capable of running long distances in the forest. Therefore, this animal is one that possesses huge stamina.
