Magickal Uses:

This metal of Jupiter is used in a divination similar to the one dicussed with lead. On New Year’s Eve (a good night for foretelling the future), melt some tin in an iron cup. Once it’s metal, throw the tin into a bucket of icy water. When it’s cool, look at its shape, and at the folds or patterns within it.
Carry tin for good luck, and small carved images of dollar bills made from tin can be money attracting talismans.

Jet

1174629_509258452489008_1181478852_n

Jet is organic in origin, and is also known as black amber, although it is not actually an amber, but rather fossilized wood. Like coal it is formed by the remains of wood that has been immersed in water for millions of years, then compacted and fossilized. When burned or touched with a hot implement, it often exudes the characteristic smell of coal.

It was used extensively in mourning jewelry in Victorian times due to its somber color and modest appearance. This stone has long been considered a stone for alleviating and bringing grief to the surface to be healed. Medieval healers believed that burning jet was a cure for fevers and all manner of different illnesses.

It has been mined since 1400BC and worked pieces of jet have been found in prehistoric burial mounds. In the 16th century jet was used to create rosary beads for monks, as it was told that the gemstone would invoke the favor of God, the Greeks believed that wearing jet would ensure the favor of Gods, and the Pueblo Indians buried the gemstone with their dead, as it was believed it would protect them in the after life.

Scientific Properties:
Mohs Hardness of 2.5 with a amorphous crystal structure.

Like coal, jet is formed from the remains of wood immersed in stagnant water millions of years ago, then compacted and fossilized by the pressures of burial in the earth.

There is evidence that suggests that Jet may have been mined since about 1400BC; remains of worked Jet pieces have been found in prehistoric burial mounds.

Jet is generally black or dark brown, and may contain inclusions of pyrite, which may create a brassy, metallic luster. Due to the fact that jet is organic, it may dry out, causing the surface to crack, so take care in any jet pieces that you may own.

Also called Black Amber, Jet may induce and electric charge when rubbed, just as an amber does…contrary to this commonality, jet is not amber, and should not be considered such.

Mystical Properties:
Jet has historically been used as a protection stone and is said to have very powerful protection energies to ward off evil, negativity, as well as psychic attacks, it is considered one of the most powerful absorbers of “negative energy, i.e., depression.

Because it absorbs so much negative energy, and therefore very beneficial if you are prone to depression or it’s ailments.

Jet helps the wearer to be alert to all things and quickly come up with constructive solutions to any problems.

Jet is said to control all demons and thus prevent demonic possession. It draws out negative energy from the aura, and can initiate psychic experiences. It uncovers past negative energies a person still carried in their subconscious mind, and will help in understanding and working with life and karmic cycles.

Healing Properties:
Mystically, jet is considered a stone of sympathy, as it will provide great support and help alleviate the pain and suffering associated by separation of the death of a loved one.

It also helps to ease headache pain directly behind the eyes.

Jet should be frequently cleansed of the acquired negative energy and recharged by placing it in sea salt one night and among rock crystals the next. Neither water nor sun should be used in it’s cleansing and charging.

Magical Properties:
Energy: Receptive
Element: Earth, Akasha Deity: Cybele Powers: Protection, divination, luck, health

Jet is a protective stone that protects against evil spirits, magic spells and witchcraft. It should also protect it’s owner from enemies. According to legend, jet worn continuously on the body, is thought to absorb the wearer’s soul. While this is true of many stones, jet was thought to be especially powerful, and such stones were carefully guarded, for in the wrong hands they could be used to manipulate their original wearer.

Along with amber, which jet is magically “married”, this beautiful black gemstone has been found in many a prehistoric grave sites.

Contemporary Wiccan high priestesses, especially those who follow the basic ritual patterns popularized by the late Gerald Gardner, often wear necklaces of alternating amber and jet gemstone beads.

Zodiac:
Associations: Saturn

Not a Traditional Birthstone for any Month Stone of Capricorn, to dream of jet means an upcoming period of time when events may be depressing.

Chakra Classification:
Jet is most effective and most powerful when placed on the 6th, or Third Eye/Brow Chakra.

In direct chakra therapy, one should lie on the back in a relaxed manner, place the stone in the middle of your forehead or over the Third Eye, and simply concentrate on your 6th, or Third Eye/Brow Chakra, it will help strengthen psychic abilities and awareness.

Although jet is associated with the 1st, or Root/Base Chakra, when used on the upper Chakras, jet helps Kundalini energy raise in a stable way from the base to the 7th, or Crown Chakra, thus assisting with transcendence.

Crystal Skull

  • Posted on August 23, 2013 at 8:26 pm

synergy1b

The famous Crystal Skull is an ancient Mayan made from rock crystal.

The Crystal skull was discovered by explorer F.A. Mitchell-Hedges in 1927 at Lubaantun, British Honduras.

It is estimated the Crystal skull may be up to 12,000 years old.

The Crystal skull was shaped by a succession of Mayan priests from a large block of pure crystal. It is thought it may have taken over 150 years to complete the Crystal skull.

The Crystal skull is said to bring a curse on those who mock it. Observers have reported sounds, odours and amazing light effects.

Laboratory tests that were carried out by Hewlett-Packard Company, Santa Clara, California reveal the skull has optical properties which would be virtually impossible to duplicate with modern day equipment.

There is a similar but rougher counterpart to the Mayan Skull. Discovered in 1889 in Mexico it is much cruder in execution. It is currently on display at the British Museum of Mankind, in London.

There is also the Paris Crystal Skull. A single piece of clear quartz held in the Trocadero Museum in Paris. It came allegedly from a soldier of fortune in Mexico in the late 1880′s. It has the most primitive of facial features and design.

The Amethyst Crystal Skull is a single piece of amethyst crystal discovered in a Mayan cache of artifacts in Mexico by a Mayan Brotherhood in the early 1900′s. Features are the circular indentations in the temple and a white squiggly line that goes the circumference of the Crystal skull.

There is said to be a total of thirteen crystal skulls in existence today.

Magnificent examples of opalized wood can be found in Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, and lively green fluorescing opal (hyalite) occurs in seams in pegmatites in New England and North Carolina and in cavities in basalt near Klamath Falls, Oregon. Beautiful precious opal, as a replacement in wood, has been obtained in Virgin Valley, Humboldt Co., Nevada. Excellent fire and precious opal occur in lava flows in N Mexico.

MAGICAL PROPERTIES:
Opal is considered to be able to confer the gift of invisibility on its wearer. To accomplish this, Cunningham says “The gem was wrapped in a fresh bay leaf and carried for this purpose.” He also says, “Opals are also worn to bring out inner beauty. A beauty spell: Place a round mirror on the altar or behind it so that you can see your face within it while kneeling. Place two green candles on either side of the mirror. Light the candles. Empower an opal with your need for beauty — while holding the stone, gaze into your reflection. With the scalpel of your visualization, mold and form your face (and your body) to the form you desire. Then, carry or wear the opal and dedicate yourself to improving your appearance.”

Very high

LEGENDARY POWER
This Library of Light holds all possibilities and knowledge of past, present, and future; it is attuned to the Akashic Record. This Quartz formation has emerged now to assist in shifting the vibrational frequency of our planet and all who live here. I use one to help download information from the crystal oversouls regarding the deeper purposes of new crystals. Cathedral Quartz has many terminations coming off its main body, symbolizing the oneness of creation. It reminds us that, although we may experience ourselves as individuals, at the core level we are all one. In group work, Cathedral Quartz harmonizes and amplifies group intention, acting as both receiver and transmitter for group energy.

HEALING POWER
Cathedral Quartz has the master healing power of Quartz taken to a higher dimension, to work on cellular memory from the vibration of light. This crystal heals dis-eases carried through the ancestral line or by your own soul. Physically, anecdotal evidence suggests it is magical for relieving pain and for preventing bacterial and viral infections. (Place it directly over the affected site.)

TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER
Cathedral Quartz lets you access the fullness of your whole being and the history of your soul. It helps you remember who you truly are and why you assumed incarnation. Through working with Cathedral Quartz, you develop an unshakeable sense of your true value and reason for being. Each type of Cathedral Quartz has its own specific transformation power.

Vibration:
Earthy

LEGENDARY POWER
Tourmaline is found in many colors due to a variety of chemical constituents, and ancient legends abound about its effectiveness as a protection amulet. Not all ancient sources can be uthenticated, however, due to confusion over the name Schorl, which is now applied only to Black Tourmaline. Most Black Tourmaline contains iron, making it a powerfully protective stone. Due to its inner structure, however, Tourmaline traps negative energy within it rather than bouncing it back and forth as iron-based stones are prone to do. Use it in a grid around your home to create a protective shield that blocks negativity or toxic energy of any kind.
Tourmaline is piezoelectric and pyroelectric, generating electricity through pressure or heat, such as from the sun. Due to its attraction-repulsion electrostatic property, it was named the “ash drawer.” This property was accidentally discovered by Dutch children, who were playing with the stone. Soon afterward, Dutch mariners began using the stone to draw ash out of their long-stemmed pipes. The Chinese used Burmese Black Tourmalines to make buttons for Mandarins’ hats.

HEALING POWER
Black Tourmaline protects the body against electromagnetic stress, negativity, and psychic attack. It may help to harmonize the brain and repattern neural pathways in malfunctions, such as dyslexia or dyspraxia. Realigning the spinal column, Black Tourmaline energetically stimulates the immune system and the thyroid gland. To relieve pain and arthritic swelling, hold this stone over the site.

TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER
Black Tourmaline is invaluable for sensitive people who are overwhelmed by geopathic or electromagnetic stress, including Wi-Fi, or by radiation. It draws the toxicity out through your feet and transmutes it into powerful Earth-healing energy. Wear Black Tourmaline at your throat or place it on your computer or other electrical equipment to block emanations and strengthen your auric field.
Wearing Black Tourmaline gives psychic protection, too. To transmute negative energy, place the stone on the name of the person who is instigating an attack. At a psychological level, Black Tourmaline helps you understand how holding onto toxic emotions or negative thoughts attacks you from within, creating dis-ease that ultimately manifests physically.
The stone supports you in acting and thinking positively, so you create a beneficial environment for yourself.

LEGENDARY POWER
The bearer of sharp crystal intelligence, this high-vibration Quartz was thermally shocked to create a light bringer that carries cosmic fire within its numerous rainbows. Its innate power fertilizes the Earth and the soul, activating expanded consciousness. This Quartz contains inner figures that draw on shamanic medicine, and its symbols can be intuitively read for advice regarding soul transformation. You must feel worthy to work with this crystal and be ready to take responsibility for your own emotional, karmic, and ancestral healing—it will assist you, but will not do the work for you or magically dissolve the past. It gently brings up your own “stuff” and supports you during the process of transmutation. A crystal of joy and happiness, resurrection, and rebirth, it links polarities and integrates the full spectrum. The crystal resonates with the heart chakra of the Andes, the mountain range through which the Earth’s kundalini now flows. Fire and Ice carries the energy of Buddhist diamond healing and links to Raphael, Archangel of healing. It also connects to ancient Egypt and heals the results of misuse of power from that time.

HEALING POWER
Physically, Fire and Ice works through the pineal and pituitary glands, energetically reconfiguring the endocrine system and neurotransmitters. It may aid the reproductive and urinary tracts in both sexes, activating kundalini to sweep through the kidneys in a cleansing process. It also heals the etheric, causal, and higher spiritual bodies. Fire and Ice opens the central channel and ignites kundalini energy in the lightbody.

TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER
Fire and Ice contains the spirit of pure love. Its purpose is to encompass dark and light within itself to assist in the evolution of the Earth and everything on it. Particularly useful for spiritual manifestation, it has a strong resonance with the law of attraction. A crystal for new beginnings and profound growth, Fire and Ice reveals your soul’s purpose and creates a new personal reality. By opening the third eye and assisting kything, it lets you perceive different timelines, endless possibilities, and the beauty of All That Is through its interconnectedness to multirealities and higher dimensions. Fire and Ice recalibrates the resonance of all Quartzes to an expanded level.

Note:
Fire and Ice comes from a specific mine in Brazil and has a very high underlying energy. It is not common Crackled Quartz.

MOTHER-OF-PEARL

  • Posted on August 6, 2013 at 6:03 am

Energy: Receptive
Planets: Moon, Neptune
Elements: Water,
Akasha Associated Metal: Silver
Powers: Protection, Wealth

Magical/Ritual Lore:
Mother-of-pearl is the lustrous, opalescent interior of various sea mollusks.
Though not a stone, it has been included here because of its long use in magic.
Mother-of-pearl has been used in ritual jewelry throughout the ages.
Seashells were the medium of exchange (money) in many parts of the world where metals were scarce or lacking, such as Polynesia.

Since this substance is the product of a living creature-the exterior skeleton, or shell-it is related to the fifth element, Akasha.
Collect mother-of-pearl (m.o.p.) yourself in stream beds or the ocean.
Since commercial m.o.p. is obtained by killing the animal which created it, it is therefore rather risky to use in magic.
Mystically, it relates to the ocean, to depth and movement.

Magical Uses:
Mother-of-pearl is placed on newborn babies to protect them from the perils of their new existence.

It is also a fine substance to use in wealth, money and riches spells. Empower a bit of m.o.p. with your magical need for money. Anoint it with seawater (which contains gold) or a money-drawing oil, such as patchouly or cedar. Place a silver coin or any pieces of silver next to the shell. Wrap a dollar bill or green paper tightly around the m.o.p. and silver object and secure with green string. Place this talisman on your altar between two green candles. Let them flame for ten to fifteen minutes while visualizing. Then carry the charm with you.

Jordan Buddy or as he was know by those closest to him as Psycho Jordan Buddy passed away this morning 4-7-2010. He went peacefully and felt no pain. His kidneys had shutdown which lead to other health problems. He lived a full and carefree life never having to go without. He came into our lives to fix a broken heart, and was there for us when it was broken many more times. Even thou we are sad to see this gentle heart go, we know we will never forget all the joy he brought into our lives. There wasn’t a single person that didn’t fall in love with him when they met him. He was wise and kind in his life and in his passing. He will truly be missed.
