Rose Quartz study. Post two.

This is blog two of ten about the interesting subject of Rose Quartz. Available here on the website blog and Patreon publicly. The other nine will be on Patreon. For anyone wanting to check out EPJ’s Patreon, please see Patreon.com/EvilPawnJewelry

Like many deep dive posts from 2014, I want to take on a deeper dive into not only the metaphysical properties of Rose Quartz, but I want to add what Birthstones combine with Rose Quartz for maximum effect. Some stones are like polar opposites and other are like magnets attracting. This is dependent on which Level a crystal is. I have posted about this on Patreon, and this weekend I will have a large post about bundles and combinations. For now I want to go into the truths about Rose Quartz Properties and lay down a foundation for a deeper understanding of this stone.

Think of all that we think we know about Rose Quartz. It is pink, it stands for love, it is in the level one quartz family, etc. The interest in Rose Quartz is all that hides under those layers of pink. The layers are much like the Rose flower, even in full bloom there is a center hidden from all of us. A place the sun never sees. 

First, let us speak about what is known and true about the stone. Once we have this foundation laid down, we will speak of what is rarely in the light, but in plain sight. The layers of rose quartz, delicate, but strongly symbolic. 

One part that is known; rose quartz is a stone of the heart and unconditional love. All love, all hearts, all categories of all love. 

One part that is of old; A token of relationships. Attracting new love, strengthening an existing bond, and driving away all those who truly do not love you. Especially those that wear masks of another face for their own benefit. 

One part that is unrealized; Some can use this stone, as a protection talisman, to keep people who do not love you far away from you. A protection device. Energy and color therapy of rose quartz can repel and help break some long time associations from walking alongside you on your path. Freeing you from emotional and psychological vampires that constantly feed off of you. A dissolvent that can free you, even when you are unable to free yourself. 

One part that is practiced; A stone with energy relating to the heart chakra, giving you the best tools to clear all of the dark sides pertaining to the perceptions of love that isn’t really love. Clear out the hurt, resentment, and false love that has disguised itself before you wearing a mask. These things have nothing to do with love and shouldn’t be associated with it. Trust and love freely. Those who take it to a dark place do not live in love but try to make you think this is a part of love or the ‘dark side’ of love that does not truly exist. This is for their own benefit, not yours. If they have you believing this is so, then you will not practice love for the fear of hurt. Hurt does not come with true love. (Not speaking of the ‘passing of a loved one’. This is a different kind of healing. What I am speaking of pertains to standing relationships that bleed because of ego) Let go of all dark perceptions of love. There is only a dark side of the moon. The heart is a place of bright water always and the sun never sets there in that one place.

From cleansing and concentrating the stone, charging, combination/helper stones, Birthplate placement for Geminis and Scorpios, Metaphysical Properties, shape meanings, Symbolic language of direction, and more. All posting this month and next! Happy Week’s End!

Worry Rocks

As a child, we always referred to them as worry rocks. Since I have become an adult, I have heard them referred to as thumb stones, palm stones, takers stones, and worry stones in kind. These companions fare in an overall way. The way is absorbent; a true taker. This is important to realize because there are times that worry rocks should be put away like a faring quartz but there are times when it should be held like a companion. The ancient use of worry rocks is vast but all associate with water. Rocks shaped by water, left smooth from the sea, metaphysically erode the jagged edges in the mind.

Traditionally, Worry Rocks were made of Soapstone, which is an absorbent of all excess energy that sits at the top. Before this, in antiquity, any soft stone from the ocean would do. Marble has also been discovered as a popular worry servant of old. Over time, I have seen so many different types of worry rocks made available, but each has specific absorbent characteristics.

Worry Rocks are great concentration tools for the mind, spirit, and body. More on this subject posted on Patreon. Happy Week’s End!

The Lusse Necklace

When I was a kid I had this recurring dream that I was in my Grandparent’s kitchen, and there were these yellow swirled breads on a dish. I saw my little hand grab one. Although I was a child, I knew in my dream I was even younger, these layers are never to be underestimated. I remember not liking the raisins on the bread and I spit them out. I held these two nasty little half-chewed raisins in my little hand. Looking at them. I looked up and saw a double-cross on the wall. That was it, or that was all I could remember. My Grandma had a necklace like that cross, so I chalked it up to that being about her jewelry. 

When I was about 13, I found this incense company I loved. Mostly because the logo to this specific scent in the line was a stag depiction of Cernunnos. The design was more animal than godhead. I liked how his horns curled into a puffy swirl. I liked how there were swirls around the entire design. It hit me that it reminded me of that yellow bread with the raisins from my dream. 

If you look through all of my sketchpads from my youth, you’ll see nothing but these swirls and swirl patterns of this dream bread. Swirly flowers, swirly trees, all the way to swirly people. I even have a painting of swirly people standing in the sea, steps away from a shoreline, with rosins raining down on them. Swirling shrimp swimming in swirls around their ankles. 

Fast forward to a few years ago. I drew up this necklace, and there it sat ‘morgued’ as I call it, in my design cabinet. I didn’t think it was going anywhere. I cannot tell you how many shelves I have of morgues designs that exist for me and me alone. It lay in its bin, waiting to be brought to life or buried forever in the whirlwind of my own mind. 

About last year my friend Mia started sending me recipes for some traditional Scandinavian breads that I was wanting because I wanted to change the ingredients a bit and make them at home. One of the recipes was for Lussekatter (Swedish Saffron Bread aka buns) One of them looked like that shape from my dream and the shape from the incense package. At this point, I realized that it may not have been a dream, may have been real. Who knows? Not too far fetched, me at age 4, hopping up on a counter to snatch some bread. Sound like me! 

I went out to learn more about the shapes of the bread because it was driving me batty. Mia sent a cool video by an artist on IG named Saga-Mariah Sandberg. She had a video in her storyline about the shapes of the bread. An amazing storyline indeed! Some say they are supposed to be curled up cats. Some say they protect the body from evil. Ah, that symbolic language has me. As I read more and more about the shapes and their meaning I was just floored. These swirls could stretch out far back into time, loop up the past then curl back up, bringing now and then to a meet. Seeing what it was that I was not remembering and reviving it into consciousness. The Lussekatter is only for a specific holiday each year, but with my Lusse Necklace, I can find those protective swirls when I need them. How those swirls got me. Twisted up all these years over some bread. Really, it was more than bread. It was my family telling me things that memory had failed to hold tight. Those swirls stretched out and curled back up bring them back to me.

Shape Is Intention

Many times I have written about the Language and Direction of Adornments. This concerns which way a Cameo should face for specific intentions, on which finger to wear a Rose Quartz, which pocket to carry aventurine in for abundance, etc. What stones, on which side, for what reason. 

I am going to explore this topic further this month but I am also going to go deeper into the world of Crystal Shapes; natural and carved. Sacred Geometry, Crystal Structure, Chemical Compounds of Quartz, and Crystallography. 

Let us look at an example of Rose Quartz. We know that Rose Quartz is best worn on the chest but can serve us in different ways by wearing the stone on the right or left. 

Most people believe that Rose Quartz draws love, this is true as long as the stone is used properly. A Rose Quartz serves our heart’s best interest. Many do not realize that the stone also repels false love. A talisman that wards off love lies masked in truth. 

The Crystal System of a Rose Quartz is Hexagonal. Its chemical formula is SiO₂. This makes Rose Quartz a Seeker Transformer crystal. A Crystal designed to help you seek out what it is you desire and transform your reality with this energy when it is obtained. These energies can be manipulated by the actual shape of the crystal; natural or carved, and how you wear the crystal. (As discussed above) 

Let’s say you obtained a Rose Quartz in the shape of a Star Tetrahedron/Merkaba. This shape is for meditation but can also be very effective in stone-throwing. Either way, exercising this energy would cause an unwanted love to go away. Maybe if you were trying to get over a person you were in a relationship with or if you are having issues with starting anew. Rose Quartz in Merkaba wards off old unwanted love, even if it is wanted somewhere but you know it is best to end it. The Merkaba knows it is best too. Let’s say you were trying to seal a current love relationship to you; heart-shaped rose quartz would be in order. This is no guarantee, but you are putting it out into the universe that this is the one. A Rose Quartz Pyramid is in order for self-love or helping yourself be strong and say no when people try to use your energy, physical, or material being in a negative way. A Rose Quartz Snub Cube (or Icosahedron) has to do with trust and the lack thereof one or both people have in a current relationship. This shape can also help bring about trust when it is hard for you to trust. Healing the broken trust of the past. A Rose Quartz Crystal Skull can let you know the actual speak of the significant other; maybe their heart is not all in or maybe they aren’t true. The Skull knows and will guide you. 

Shapes combined with language and direction can exercise the energy of the crystal. Join me on Patreon for an in-depth post about how to know what crystal speaks to which direction and easy ways to understand, memorize, and exercise such energies. 

Thank you so much! Happy Week’s End!

The Metaphysical Properties and Uses of Garnet

This blog is sung for the metaphysical properties of red garnets. There are many different verses for different garnet colors and added verses for the shades of red. This is the chorus that repeats for all types of red. 

Garnets are much more than so much of what I see that is written about them. Garnet has to do with emotion and words that are emotionally charged. A tie that binds blood oaths and undying love. So many walls are held together by the same energy as garnet. So many blankets are woven from garnet’s warm fabric. A stone of honor; the honor of your word and the honor of your bloodline. 

Garnet’s energy succors with anger and dissolving resentment. No need to hang on to anything. The rain today washed us clean. The garnets sang to us in our boats as we survey the flooded lands of our former hatred. Garnets for days. Hatred burned. 

Garnet is a talisman for protection against dreams of horror and night terrors. Memories of this side that our eyes have seen, or visions from the other side. Never before looked upon but playing in our minds just the same, are all burned by the fire of garnet. 

Garnet is well combined with Onyx and Amber. Like Onyx and Amber, garnet has memory, but of a different kind. The first stone used in animal speak healing. A romantic notion without complication. A dark stone that radiates closeness, tied kinship, amity. Among the most ancient of gems,

Garnet uses destructive energy to make way to your creative energy. Burning the field that becomes a great medicine forest. The great destroyer to make way as the great creator. If you fear change, tread lightly on Garnet’s path. 

An important stone, a one of the great seven, garnet gives you the ability to maintain sanity on this creative plane. 

Intense feelings rise but become useful and leaves the most awaited gifts at your front door. Garnet will bring you the awareness of fire and with meditation and concentration can help with DNA activation. 

Specific cuts of garnet have varied gifts. Square, Rounds, Ovals, etc. all give specific energy. Join me on Patreon for an extended look into Garnet. I will talk more about dreaming Garnet, stone bundling, concentrating, cleanings, charging, the memory of garnet, and shapes/language direction.

Golden Healer Crystal Muse

There are many reasons why Golden Healer speaks to me. To state the obvious, my maternal side is from Quartz country. Our family blood is woven into the Salem Plateau. The Earth rock and soil literally are the same as our blood. These family bonds are as strong as tree roots, and they are a part of every step we walk, securing the ground under our feet. Climbing like a twisted ribbon to the cellar of the Appalachian Mountains. This stretch of land is specifically named, The Black Mountains. Like all land, this land told us stories, and those stories gave way to an understanding of the land’s rock within. This is Earth’s most Ancient Crystalline rock; our kin, lived and died there. Our Ancestors literally live there within the soil. Our passed-on Kin giving their DNA to the rock. Parts of us belonging to the rock forever. When this is your root life force, you cannot help but to know the ways of crystal speak. Even before any of us could understood people, we understood rocks. There are methods of feeding crystals that involves blood and soil. When this happens, there is not just a way for the crystal energy to move in your favor, there is a way for you to become a part of the crystal nature. When generations of your DNA is buried into this rock, you are eternally joined with it. Crystals from this area know me and I know them.

Not all Golden Healers are from this area of land. The term “Golden Healer” to some, is for crystals that ONLY come from Quartz Country. I am a little more lax with some types and I am willing to call some of them all Golden healers, but there is a difference that does set them all apart. The truth is in the chemistry, then the location.

There are a few different “types” of Golden Healers and then there are crystals that are identified as such but are not at all. The internet is a cluster of “copy and Paste” mixed with checkered facts. Some really great sources and some cherry picked until the facts are unrecognizable to the subject. The information on Golden Healer seems to be quite scattered on the internet. Please research carefully if you are specific about your Golden Healers.

First and most importantly, what is a Golden Healer? There is a specific “type” that are considered “true golden healers” and other’s considered “chemically golden healer” or sometimes I have seen labels like “Mineral Quartz iron oxide.” Strangely enough, I have also seen Yellow Quartz, Fire Quartz (Hematoid), Tangerine Quartz, and Limonite stained Quartz labeled as Golden Healers. They are not.

A Golden Healer, to some, can only come from the Ozarks. Others do except the other places they are found. The truth is, the Ozark versions have higher levels of a specific type of iron oxide level. This is why Crystal workers of all kind favor it and some have become a bit elitist about them. The greasy iron oxide coating is grown within the crystal itself. It cannot be removed with an acid bath or completely polished away. It is always.

Other Golden Healers found in other places on this Earth may or may not have the same formula in measurements but all the ingredients are present, so to me, this is still a Golden Healer. When the crystal structure is off, it seems to come down to a matter of opinion. Whether you wish to call them “True Golden Healers” or just “Golden Healers” is completely up to you. There is a noticeable price difference between the Ozark versions of these beauties and others from all over the world. Interesting enough, many clear Quartz now coming from the Ozarks were once very light color golden healers. I always say to all, ‘always check your sources with a fine toothed comb.’ Artificially irradiated crystals are a little annoying to my energy field and I wish the world would leave all of this perfection alone.

I’ve heard many describe a Golden Healer’s properties in these terms, sometimes exact… “It’s golden and it’s a healer. There it is. Master Healer.”

I am here to tell you that it isn’t that simple. Sometime ago, I wrote several posts about “Teacher Quartz” and their relationship to us. Following up with a few posts on “Companion Quartz.” There is a kinship there but the Golden Healer can fall under the eye view of “Muse Quartz” and “Healer Quartz.” They are givers of healing through ancestry, art, and “SkitSkater” … an old Ozark term for when the young kids say “It Gives Life.”

Golden Healer can raise your vibration and bring you to new levels by uprooting you out of old systems. Linking you to your ancestors (color Yellow therapy 3) and healing with their lessons and love. Healing that you can also find through artistic outlets. That exact feeling you get when something awakens your mind. That “Life” feeling. Golden Healer inspires it daily within you.

Yellow Aragonite Metaphysical Properties and Uses.

People often ask me about my obsession with Yellow Aragonite. I have had two makers tell me they don’t use it because it doesn’t “sell.” I also know it isn’t highly desired but for the true crystal lover, it cannot be dismissed. I use it often to honor it but I also use it to encourage awareness of this stone for people that haven’t “seen.” This stone has a secret life, like many stones do, but this life is going to be exercised in a much greater detail than other types of Aragonite. The Yellow Aragonite is a power stone that will help recreate this world. 

This stone is a must for the Tarot Card reader and the interpreter of symbolic language. Yellow Aragonite is the reflection of sun on the water and the cell phone number to the gods. All canvas open to interpretation is painted on Yellow Aragonite. 

A very soft energy that is easy to work with, yellow aragonite speaks to us gently and understandably, a stone that loves all animals especially humans. 

A stone to help you with self acceptance and burns away all self doubt that lingers in the darkest corners of our minds. 

As an “Increaser” stone, it can be added to any concoction to make the flame higher. ‘Adds to’ and ‘Amps up’ any stone bundle combo. I highly suggest adding it together with citrine for a power punch of self assurance and happiness. 

A wonderful stone for massage because this stone “stimulates” and “increases” all thought and action. Not for “Stone Eating” or elixirs. (Remember stone eating is not actually eating the stone… it is the term used for the divination technique. Do not eat stones) (A large post coming up about this on Patreon)

Best worn as a necklace and secondly as earrings. Never wear below the knees (toe ring, anklet, in a shoe, in a sock, etc.) This stone should always be worn above the ribcage’s end.  

Yellow Aragonite is the main Hair Energy stone. Yes, it can help you grow your mane out but it is really much more than that. Hair is not only something to style, it is the “antennas” of the body. Tying to the Zero Point Field and serving as our “cellular up” to another plane of consciousness. A higher energy. When I think of this stone I always think of ‘The Creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo. 

The stone of Hair Stylists and Painters, yes they go hand in hand, a perfect talisman for anyone who has to create something from nothing. A thought into a tangible reality that all can see and touch. 

Be careful where you buy all Aragonite. They remember things like the hair remembers. Reprogram often and clear every cycle with cold water. 

More discussion about this stone will be on my Patreon soon. Concentrations, more uses, clearing & old world techniques harnessed by folklore coming up. 

Happy Week’s Start to all and may it be filled with new hope and renewed energy. Last Quarter is nigh.

In Bloom

I have been writing a lot lately. Exploring the maze of anxiety’s complex design. Recently, another person’s energy got the best of me and it left me in many states of wonder. I usually am not affected by too many opinions or words held by others. We are all on such unique journeys and I understand that people have things they are working through. I have many paths that I navigate with my trusty yard sheers (hedge trimmers) and nothing brings more joy to me than removing dead things. The things that no longer make sense. The things that do not serve me. The garden in my mind should be the way I desire it, but it should also be fruitful. It should flower, nourish my soul, bring helpful seeds to others. What a joyful thing in this life to see flowers and LIFE giving vibrations come from seeds you gave to someone else. These holy gifts are real and we take them with us after this life. 

As for this energy that I encountered, make no hesitation that I not only expelled it, but I exercised it. As I have said many times, your left hand must be just as strong as your right. When someone shames others for their family, their background, and the identity this world has pressed upon them, well, there is no room in my life for such pestilence. No one can tell you who they think you are. No one can shame you for your true identity or things that cannot be changed.  No one should oppress you. No one should make you less than they are. There is no lesser or greater. I don’t like people who stand up high and liquify people into a measuring cup. When someone uses their energy, keyboard, or actually tells you that you are nothing… remember you are nothing to them… THEM. They reflect their nothingness onto you and hope you will accept it. Because really, you are everything to them and they need to take you down. Down to the dirt… as I have always said…. 

“See, a seed can be planted too far down and be surrounded by darkness for a long time. If it sprouts, you wouldn’t believe all the tall greens around it that may try to take its light so it won’t grow. Sometimes weeds step right in and try to choke it. Then as it catches the light and rises, a few will gossip quietly and wish for its death. Roll their eyes. Ya know, all that hateful stuff. Then when that plant grows taller than all those light hogs and weeds, you would think World War III had broken out. That’s when people lose their minds. Show their truest selves. A personal attack for just growing and being. Sure you have a ton of friends growing with ya but there are always those other guys in the mix, all angry. Then, when that flower blooms… those other guys are still green with jealousy. Hating you for how people may love your bloom. They say things like, “She didn’t always look like that!” .. “She wasn’t a flower 15 years ago.” … “She thinks she is so special.” … “I know where she came from, the dirt, she is nothing.” 

You’re right about one thing, I did come from the dirt and now I bloom every season.”

Cats and Crystals

I know it has been a very long time since I wrote an Animal Medicine post. I appreciate the emails with requests for stones, books, and all the medicines. All of you are so amazing and I am honored to get to interact with each of you. Cannot tell you how much I appreciate your kindness and support through the years. 

I noticed that I hadn’t posted for years about cat circles, interjectory energies gifted into thoughts by cats, or prophetic dream or dream states brought on by specific animal energies such as the ones brought on by cats. 

Nicodemus, my oldest cat, is definitely my “anxiety” cat. When I can’t sleep he jumps up on the bed and lays on my chest of stomach. His deep purring puts me to sleep within moments. Once I am asleep his work is done. He leaves. There have been times I was worried or unsure. In these times, he is always there. He, like Holden, both have absorbed a lot over the years in protection of me and my household. Cats do not neutralize or dispel energy. They do take it between the worlds and on their messenger routes. It becomes baggage, it can become sickness. Especially for sticky indoor cats. As humans there is nothing we can do to stop them from their born nature. Cats protect energetically while Dogs protect physically. I have a story for you that happened over 2 years ago that would floor you. That is for another day though. 

For now, remember it is important to protect our babes. Clearing a Cat’s energy can add years to their lives and well beings. It can change them but only in a good way. As I have posted in the past about Earth Medicine being positive productive without backward cause. 

Have you ever noticed cats loves to lay on crystals and rocks? You would think they would want something soft and plush to lay on. I leave a very large 20 pound crystal on the floor upstairs for them to lay on it they need to concentrate or expel before I can help clear them. 

I use a blue kyanite wand most of the time. My cats also love selenite. Take the wand and start at the cat’s crown, taking the wand down their spine, to the end of their tail. Then under their bodies on the ribcage and abdominal area. Sometimes they want contact with the crystal and sometimes not. Petting your cat with a crystal can’t hurt but I leave it up to the cat. Clearing your Cat is similar to clearing your crystals. Absorb and release.

Smoky Quartz Metaphysical Properties and Uses

The Heart of Veracity is Smoky Quartz, truth is embedded in each gaze. As the dark slowly lifts, it gives way to a clear picture. Drawing the truth out of a situation, especially where it is needed for you to prevail, is the gift given by Smoky Quartz. Their surface can seem dark and listless, but upon a closer look, you see an inner light. Like the bottom of a bog pool. That shimmer of life that lives underneath. A summoner to find it. A hidden power that rises. 

Smoky Quartz is a stone of the mental plane; being the governing power over concentration, surface associations, specific stages of trauma, and specific dream association. 

This being said, Smoky Quartz is a way to tie the mental and physical together to manifest a constant dream, goal, or repetitive wish. The Smoky Quartz is a seeker crystal, by this, it naturally attunes itself to the wearer. Making pathways where you specifically want to go and leading you there as a personal guide. Smokies are also transformers, helping you grow and transform on your journey. This is the ultimate “goal” stone. 

Paired with Fluorite, it can dissolve fatigue brought on by burn out. Also helping with endurance for the long journey ahead. 

All aspects of concentration fall under the reign of Smoky Quartz. Focus, short attention spans, the ability to absorb what has been learned, and all attention disorders. A helper in paying attention the things in our lives we tend to not see because our attention is transfixed elsewhere. 

Surface associations such as communications and making yourself understood. Showing up in self defense when other people try to tell you who THEY think you are. A must for those who tend to over analyze past conversations with anxiety and distress. Those who replay things over and over to no avail adding self doubt into the mix. Smoky helps refocus away from these issues. Also helps refocus the energies put into melancholy and worry about uncertainty. An aid, setting a warm overcast on the cold coasts of loneliness. 

A helper in healing from past traumas and the onset of depression and anxiety from said traumas. In this area, smoky quartz is a helper stone and must be paired with a lead stone for the specific trauma. 

Smoky Quartz is the lead stone and only stone for lawsuits and justice. Pulling the truth and setting records straight. Paired with pyrite, the duo can expose liars in your everyday life. To you and sometimes themselves.  

Smoky Quartz also falls under a very exclusive category that has only a membership of seven. Smoky is one of the Seven Ancient Stones of the Gods. Playing an extensive roll in antiquity and lore.  Over many years of compiling old stories about this stone, I am taken aback by the rich catalog of lore about Smoky Quartz. Not just in one region but in places all over the world. One of the Seven that speaks to people in this new world, as much as the old.
