I started writing this a few days ago and did not get around to finishing it…late nights working and a ton of things to do in general, aside from all that I wanted to learn a little more about the stone I am focusing on this week and that included a couple nights of meditation and sleep with it as well as lots of reading. The more I worked with the freeform Shungite piece I have the more it showed me that I needed to use it in a grid not just as a single stone of focused energy work.

To start I will share about each of the stones on the grid I am using for it right now. The Shungite is the focal piece with four jet and four lapis lazuli atop a grey agate slice. Let me tell you a little about the stones that I am using here…

Shungite Freeform, received this beauty for Yule 2015

Shungite Freeform, received this beauty for Yule 2015

Shungite:

What can I say about this stone? Not enough as I am still learning to work with it. For Yule this year I was gifted this lovely piece of Shungite, it’s quite an amazing energy and a large stone. The first time I touched this stone I received this amazing zing that went straight up my arm, through every cell in my body and out through the skin at the top of my head, after it filled me with this amazing light energy clearing out ALL the gunky energy that has been holding onto my light bodies. Shungite, is considered by some to be a shaman’s stone for it’s amazing energetic balancing and attraction to drawing in the light and freeing one from negative patterns at every level, down to the very molecules of who we are. This seemingly molecular alignment helps us to clear the patterns that manifest in ourselves in ways such as emotional difficulties, disease and negativity. If you are ungrounded, shungite will aid you to better connect with the earth. Looking further into the work of shungite, you can see it’s deep connection to universal energy and provides us with an aura of psychic protection. It is a stone of truth, many find themselves uncomfortable when holding, wearing or actively using shungite to lie or create falseness. Through active workings with shungite you are able to begin to let go of deeply seated feelings of shame, guilt, fear or anything which holds you back through harmful/negative influences within yourself.

Tumbled Lapis Lazuli - small piece.

Tumbled Lapis Lazuli – small piece.

Lapis Lazuli:

Lapis is most often called “The stone of Queens”, it is known for being used in ancient Egypt as a stone of royalty. It was worn by and decorated the tombs of Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Lapis Lazuli carries the vibrations to awaken your path to self-knowledge to discovering truth and connection to Deity.

It is known for activating the higher mind and psychic abilities, the combination of minerals can assist in acting in accordance with your highest ideals and visions. Traditionally, it has been used to assist in connecting with the Gods and invoking divine inspiration and is also used to help with seeking knowledge and understanding. Further, it is known for use in past life exploration through gaining access to the Akashic Records. It’s a true stone of self-knowledge and reflection.

Tumbled Jet - small sized

Tumbled Jet – small sized

Jet:
Jet is a stone for purification and protection, similar to selenite, jet absorbs energy and processes it into clear and helpful energy. Through this absorption process you can see how it is both purification and protecting as it will inhibit harmful energy for reaching in the same manner but transforms it into something usable.

Additionally, jet can be used to help discover the place where your potential and power lie. It can help you see beyond the “negative” and find the lesson of a situation and then integrate that lesson into manifestation of something “better”. Jet clears your energetic field of patterns and attachments of the negative experiences, through the clearing of the attachment you turn the experiences into the lessons (mentioned above) in order for you to perceive your self more completely and help you develop to your fullest potential.

Completed Grid

Grid with the focal Shungite surrounded by Lapis Lazuli, Jet atop an agate slice, surrounded by quartz, cherry quartz, aqua aura quartz and pink lemurian quartz then finally radiating lemurians in clear singing lemurian and smokey lemurian.

Let’s look at the combined energy of this grid and the supporting stones I’ve added, clear quartz, smokey, pink and clear lemurians, aqua aura quartz to really get in there and support the energy of the grid. This grid is all about clearing out the inner clutter and really healing the harmful patterns that I have adopted over the years. I am retaking my sacred self. I am filling my heart with things that bring me joy and ridding the clutter, abuses of the past and making the way for the re-awakening of my entire body and spirit. Oh it’s coming and I can’t wait to share it all with you along the way.
