To get in touch with the energies resident within rocks, take a rock that appeals to you. It should be small enough to hold in your hand, but that is the only criteria.
Place it in your power hand and sit quietly. Close your eyes and direct your consciuosness to your hand. Feel the rock. Explore it with your mind, noticing the textures and temperature, hardness and any pieces of irt clinging to it.
When you have done this hold the rock passively and let it "speak" to you. It will do this through vibrations, the essence of all magick. The vibrations will come from within the rock itself, and you should feel them in your hand, pounding not only against the palm but the fingers and thumb as well.
If the vibrations are fast-paced and vigorous, it is a high vibration rock; that is, it is possessed of vibrations which are quickly dispersed and which will act swiftly in any spell in which you might use it.
If the vibrations or pulses are slow, sedate, it is a "low vibration" stone and its uses will be different.
This should be done with every rock you intend to utilize in magick. Though it might sound like a long procedure, it is actually quite short. Once you know the vibrations it can be done in a matter of seconds.
This is a simple device used to obtain yes or no answers to pertinent questions. As such, it is a form of divination.
Obtain three stones. One of a bright color, should be a high vibration stone. Another, of a dark color, should posses low vibrations. Select a third stone which seems to have "medium" vibrations. This should be unusually colored so that it can be easily differentiated from the others.
When you need an answer to a yes/no question, roll the stones in your hands like dice, mentally asking your question, then throw them onto a flat surface, preferably on the ground. A table will do.
When the stones have stopped, determine the answer by their positions. If the "yes' stone is closer to the indicator, that is the answer, If the stones are equally apart there is no answer.
The stones should be kept in a small bag of their own in a protected place and used for no other purposes.
To Communicate with Others at Long Distances:
On a high vibration stone mark your message with chalk or charcoal. Bury it deep in the Earth while visualizing the person's face, and your message will be sent.
A Protective Stone:
Take a small high vibration stone and hold it in your power hand. For several minutes, preferably sitting on the bare Earth, chant the following in a low voice, all the while staring at the stone:
Stone, evil you shall deny.
Send it to the earth and sky.
Send it to the flame ans sea.
Stone of power protect me.
Now carry the stone with you at all times as a good luck charm. It will not only absorb your energies, thus making it uniquely yours, it will also release its own energies to form a kind of protective barrier surrounding you.
A Circle of Stones:
If you wish to charge or otherwise infuse with energy any object, such as a ring, piece of jewelry, and so on, take a handful of high vibration stones of an odd number and form a ring with them on a table, floor, or best of all, on the ground. They must be in a place where they can stay put for the rest of the day.
Once the stones have been situated, place the object to be charged in the very center of the circle. If you wish to strengthen the power of the spell draw the appropriate rune on each stone before forming the ring.
Pot of Stones:
Fill an old pot or jar with low vibration stones. Place this pot in a hidden spot in your home where it will never be disturbed.
The stones will spread their low energy through out the area, spreading peace and calm as well.
The Bag of Seven Stones:
This spell requires seven stones, of either high or low vibrations. You should have one of each of these colors: white, green, red, orange, yellow, brown, and black.
It is best if you can find all of these stones yourself. stream beds are an excellent place to look. If you have difficulty, go ahead and buy them.
Place the stones in a sack made of natural cloth dyed yellow - cotton is excellent. When you desire a sneak peek into the future, hold the bag, reach inside without looking and remove one stone. The stone reveals present or future conditions.
White: peace, tranquility
Green: love, money
Red: passion, arguments
Yellow: wisdom, lessons
Brown: objects, possessions, gifts
The Stone Jar:
(a home protection charm)
Gather several small stones of various colors. If possible, choose some stones from the beach, some from rivers, some from deserts, and some from mountains. This isn't necessary, so use what you can find.
Obtain an earthenware jar, a crock, or some other clay pot. You'll need enough stones to fill it. Hold one of the stones in your projective hand. Visualize the stone emitting protective energies. As you visualize say these words:
Stone from the mountain,
Stone from the well;
Stone from the desert,
Charge now my spell!
Place the stone into the pot, saying these or similar words:
Into the pot i place this stone
To guard my hearth, my house, my home.
Repeat the entire procedure with each stone. This will take some time, depending on the size of the jar that you've chosen.
When the jar is full, place it (uncovered) somewhere in your home, while saying:
Pot of stones,
Guard this place;
Send all ill
Send it back
'Neath the ground;
It is bound!
