People often times give too much merit to the stones metaphysical meaning as written in a book by another author. The real miracle of working with stones is when you really get sucked into their worlds. Tonight, this mineral combination brought me so many revelations as I was searching for hours trying to find an accurate ID for the worlds of depth that it contained.
The amount of intense focus that I devoted to this search brought me to the mine it was found in and a few candidates of possible inclusions to this massively awesome zeolite. After finding out this information I felt such a joy within my heart. I was literally jumping up and down after figuring something that truly resonated.
It’s amazing when you can really recognize the benefit minerals have on you, whether it is intellectual or emotional- it is all about the personal process. It’s about how you choose to interact with the stones around you.If you see a stone on the ground you like, and it comforts you to pocket it and rub it when you’re about your day- do that. If you want to spend countless hours researching what minerals grow in that area and how they interact with each other, do that.If you just think it is beautiful and takes you away from your personal struggle or story for even one moment, enjoy that!
For me, working with stones has been the only way of life I have known since November of 2007. It’s been such a literal rock for me to lean on in all aspects of my life. My career, my passion, my art, my excitement, and my pleasure all lean into each other as intricate as this zeolite- coming together to create something beautiful in my mind.A peace I’ve never known that expresses itself more and more as I delve further into this world of minerals.
