I'm starting a thread about gemstones because that's what I'm using right now to focus and amplify my strength. I also want you to share openly and freely any stories you have about using/caring/programming your stones and how is that turning out for you.
Many people overlook gemstones because, quite frankly, they are not familiar with them and they are not accustomed to their size (i.e. geodes) or having them around the house. I know. Some people are nosy and ask a lot of questions and you feel like a caged animal in a zoo answering them. How to explain the metaphysical properties of an amethyst to someone that does not believe in the power of crystals? But relax, gemstones are great and can help you heal, balance and restore abundance in your life.
Today I want to discuss Tigers Eye. I know a lot of you have researched the stone on the web but have you actually purchased one, say a tumbled stone, and carried it around?
Two months ago I purchased two strings, one of small beads for a pendant, earrings and a bracelet and the other string of big polished stones that I placed in a potted plant that I have in my office desk.
Here are the results so far:
At the office:
Stones have given me focus to complete tasks, especially if I take one that I particularly like and rub it between my thumb and index finger (right hand) while I work in the computer.
They have attracted abundance in the form of speedy payments for invoices (I handle accounts receivables). We have very few unpaid invoices and clients frequently want to settle them quickly.
We are getting new customers and more work.
Desk plant looks vigorous and healthy. Its an Aglaonema, an office plant with pink and green leaves that needs very little water, sitting facing North direction (I think placement could also have something to do with its health). I know people recommend placing plants facing East but I cannot do that, so the best direction for me is North.
While meditating, the stones help me ground myself and gaining focus isnt so hard anymore. Time flies by. I hold one in each hand and rub them when I feel that Im losing my concentration.
Protection, I feel that my home is protected and blessed, havent sensed anything bad or evil lurking around for a very long time.
I feel slight changes of temperature inside my body (warmer) and feel like doing more each day. Wearing the bracelet on my left wrist feels slightly more powerful than on the right one.
Protection. I have been close to having accidents crossing sidewalks or cars almost running me over. Also Ive been able to avoid being mugged on the street.
Confidence. The look and feel of the stones gives me more confidence while talking, walking or meeting new people. They are also a nice ice-breaker when meeting someone new.
I try not to use them for extended periods but I really, really like them. When I feel drained I take them off, cleanse them in salted water and then leave them out in the sun to charge between 2-3 hours. You can do the charging monthly, depending on use. After that time they are really HOT and you can feel their energy and vibration.
Do you have a story you want to share about your experience with gemstones?
