While taking in some of the beauty of Mother Earth this summer I had a few questions come up about rocks, stones, minerals and their “powers”…. While I’m not an expert in this arena by any means, over the course of many years I have noticed that I have a tendency to be a bit of a rock collector…. And here’s my 2 cents about their “powers”: pick up a stone or rock, a mineral… what do YOU feel? is it something YOU feel connected to ? does it have a meaning for YOU? So, if YOU picked up on the YOU part – YOU got it! I do feel as though there is a connection with some of the pieces I keep at home, and work. And that’s really all that matters, YOUR connection. But, of course, I also discovered this pretty little infographic that helps explain some of the “powers” of these pieces should you want a little more meaning and info 🙂
There’s something about rocks and stones that has always fascinated me… I’ve had little collections of river rocks , sea glass and stone gems since I was a kid. I have rocks in almost every part of my home these days – and while most of them are decorative, I know where everyone of them is from. Just by touching them I’m reminded of the day and place where I found my stone treasures. They bring me a sense of tranquility, always (maybe that’s why I had lots of worry stones in school too!). Of course there are also some fun ways to incorporate rocks into your home, room, office, etc. The next time you’re out for a nature hike, look for some stones or rocks that catch your eye. Make a “peace rock” with your stone findings… or, create a little stone piece of art for yourself, a friend or family member. You can even make your own worry stones out of clay – for extra creativity! Keep your rock reminders near by, where they can easily be found and picked up.
