Anyone who has worked/played with stones knows how they call out to you sometimes. You feel a quiet, subtle call that is difficult to resist. That happened to me the last few days. I have a small piece of petrified wood that has lived on my meditation table for the last few months.
It’s about the thickness of my little finger and about two inches long - the photo makes it look much larger. I’ve had this stone for many years. I don’t remember where I got it, probably at a crystal show. This stone started calling to me a few days ago and this morning I finally gave in, put it in a small pouch and have it in my pocket. Here’s what it wants to share with you.
“Once upon a time, I was a small branch on a tree. I loved being a branch. But then something happened and my entire consciousness changed. I became stone. Here’s what I learned and want to share with you. My change didn’t happen quickly. It took a long time. For you, transformation takes time. It can seem to happen overnight, but doesn’t. What’s important is that you be open to change while also being patient. It took a long time for me to change from a live tree branch into stone. It took some time for me to get used to the change.
“I can help you when you need to slow down, rest, get used to changes, and when you want to go deeper into a particular area of learning. Pieces of petrified wood hold information from planet earth. If you sit quietly holding a piece of petrified wood, you might see visions, hear sounds, and simply come into a state of knowingness. Try it and see what happens. I think you’ll be delighted. And remember: we stones love you and are happy to work with you. Just ask. Then receive.”
There you have it! I had no idea this little stone wanted to share with you but I’m glad it did and I hope it gave you some guidance and joy! Remember: it isn’t necessary to have the actual stone with you physically in order to work with it - a photo like the one above will also work. You can find photos on the internet and in books such as Judy Hall’s Crystal Bible and Robert Simmons Book of Stones.
Love and Light,
