Pick the stones you feel most comfortable with. They can be used in spell work
or carried on your person. I have found either way effective. You don’t need to
be rich and to buy emeralds, rubies or sapphires to use in spell work. You don’t
need to have the most expensive or largest stones to work with; in fact the
ruby, emerald and sapphire I work with are not polished or cut. I think the most
I paid for them was a few dollars each. They all work wonderfully! One more
stone I use regularly is rose quartz. It is terrific for healing, finding love
and keeping the peace (all three of my children have one). It is a good stone
for finding comfort and peace of mind. I keep extra rose quartz on hand to give
to friends and family when they are in need.

Ritual to Overcome Addiction

Ritual to Overcome Addiction

 
 
Items needed:
 
paper and pencil
wide-tipped black marker
green candle
matches or lighter
orange calcite or quartz
fireproof dish or small cauldron
cloth bag (optional)
chrysoprase
hematite
 
Write your addiction on a piece of paper, then mark through it with a heavy black line. Put it aside.
 
Inscribe the candle with your name. Light the candle and say:
 
Healing Ancients, I ask of Thee
Take this pain away from me.
Remove any trace of this addiction,
And heal me of all related afflictions.
 
Hold the hematite to your forehead and say:
 
Grant courage now and healing power
Strengthen my will hour by hour.
 
Place this stone on the right side of the candle. Lift the chrysoprase to your forehead and say:
 
Stone ofjoy and happiness
Put my urges now to rest.
 
Place this stone on the left side of the candle.
 
Hold the orange calcite or quartz to your forehead and say:
 
Amplifier of energies
Magnify their powers, please.
 
Place this stone in front of the candle.
Stand in front of the altar and turn your hands palms up. Say:
 
Powers of the Earth unite
Bind the powers of this addiction right
So it will have no hold on me
As I will, so mote it be!
 
Take the paper in your hand and say:
 
Chains that bind me, now break free
I am power, strength, and resiliency
I have the courage to overcome
This addiction–go now–run!
Begone from me! Do not return!
Your power over me, I burn!
 
Light the paper with a match or lighter, then burn it in the fireproof dish, saying:
 
By flame of Fire, I’m purified
Of your delusionary lies.
I’m free of you and all the strife
That you once cast upon my life.
I am healed now I am free
As I will, so mote it be!
 
When the candle has completely burned out, carry the stones with you either loose or in a cloth pouch. Repeat the ritual as often as necessary to get control of the problem.

Gemstone of the Day for November 17th is Aragonite

Aragonite

Named after the Spanish village, Molina de Aragon, were it was first identified, aragonite has the same chemical composition as calcite, but with a different crystal structure that makes it harder and heavier. This striking crystal conjures up all manner of associations: a futuristic alien space city;an intrusion from an alternate reality; or the pristine expansion of order into space. Its ability to hold the imaginative mind in a form of creative trance makes aragonite a useful crystal for lateral thinking.

Identification and Care

  • Crystals form long intergrown six-sided prisms around a common centre. These clusters are called “sputniks.”
  • Tumbled stones often resemble solidified honey.
  • Varieties of aragonite include iron flower, a fine dendritic aggregate; peastone, a mass of pea-sized lumps in a matrix; and sprudelstein, which has different coloured bands like agate.

Magick

  • Pulls disparate elements together
  • Provides a safe base from which to explore new possibilities.
