Stones & Their Healing Uses

Chart.  Research by Avalon 1988 -1991

 

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR STONE & USE IT:

 

Choose the stone that appeals to you most at this time or close your eyes & run your receiving hand slowly over each stone or have some else place the stones individually in your receiving hand, hold for a minute & tell the other person how you react to the stone.

For best results the stone or stones should have skin contact in the Solar Plexus region. Keep in mind that stones that have been set in a metal setting will be influenced by that metal. Healing bags should hang from the neck & rest directly over the Solar Plexus. A second stone of the same kind  can be taped to the affected area itself.

All stones must be cleansed before use, then programmed through visualisation & meditation, pathworking or spell work. Healing stones must be cleaned daily by placing them for a specified time on rough sea salt. Time varies due to the severity of the illness & the size of the stone. Failure to do so may crack or damage your stone. If you are doing a healing with your healing stones on some one else place them immediately after your healing session in a bowl of salt water.

Do not use healing stones that have been programmed for this purpose for any other use. If you are using a bag, use stones in sets of threes & add a small Quartz crystal &  herbs to amplify bag.

Lithomancy, Stone Divination

Adapted from D. Valiente & Amalthea's Gem Lore

 

This type of divination is particularly associated with both Witchcraft & Shamanism world-wide. In France the French word for witch, "sorcier" is used for a male witch &  " sociere" is used for a female witch. The witch or sorcier / sorciere is one who practices Sortilege, literally one who casts lots for the purpose of divination. There are a number of different ways of doing this. I will give details here of one that requires 13 stones & gives good results. The witch must collect these stones himself / herself, at an appropriate time. Example: By using Astrology or the Moons phases, [ increase of the Moon] or by seeking it on the Great Sabbats. Sometimes a stone will find you, you will be instantly attracted to it & pick it up or buy it, or a stone may be given to you by some one who cares for you. The best place to look for your stones is on the beach, along river beds, during nature walks & picnic outings & in your local gem shop. Look for stones that are curiously marked or have appealing colours. All the stones must be roughly the same size, the essential point is that all the stones should appeal to you personally as being right for their purpose. If you are using semi-precious gemstones from a gem shop, check your gem charts for the correct attributes before you go shopping.

 

13 STONES ARE USED.

1 Stone for each of the 7 Planets.                      1 Life stone.

1 News stone.                                                  1 Luck stone.

1 Love stone.                                                   1 Home stone.

1 Magic stone.

 

Some examples are:

 

Moon

Moonstone, White Quartz, White pebble, stone with silvery  markings.

Sun

Sunstone, Citrine, Topaz, Amber, Tigers eye, any stone with golden markings or flecks.

Mars

Bloodstone, Ruby, Garnet, Flint or any red coloured stone.

Mercury

Agate,  Mica, Any variegated stone, streaked or spotted,

Jupiter

Amethyst, Lepidolite, Suglite.

Venus

Emerald, Jade, Peridot,  Any green stone.

Saturn

Coal, Apache Tear, Jet,  Any black stone.

Magic stone

Any unusual stone,  Fossil stone or a stone marked with a star.

Luck Stone

Cross stone, Holey stone, Opal, or any stone that feels lucky to you.

Life Stone

Petrified wood, Agate, Carnelian or any red or flesh coloured stone or a pebble with an ankh marked all round the stone or on its various sides if it is square in shape.

Home Stone

Moss agates, Sapphire, or any stone that is square or reminds one of home.

News Stone

Multi- coloured stone or pebble, its streaks or spots of colours are used to show if the news is good or bad.

Love Stone

Rose Quartz, Botswana Agate or any pink stone or a stone that is roughly in a heart shape.

 

A special bag is made for these stones with a draw string, [ runes & symbols can be used on it, but not on the cloth / leather used for spread] soft leather is best. A black velvet cloth or a large piece of soft leather is used for the divination spread & a cord to form a circle on the cloth / leather.

The stones, cord, bag & cloth are cleansed ritually with the 4 Elements during an Esbat rite. Place all beneath your pillow for one full month, at the next Esbat rite take all outside & offer them up to the Moon before using. Ask the Lord & Lady for wisdom, guidance & then meditate on each stone [while holding it in your receiving hand] on what it now will represent in  your future divination readings.

 

THE READING

 

The divination is made from the way in which the stones relate to each other as they fall. The diviner must be guided by intuition, as well as by some knowledge of what the different Planets govern.

Here are a few generalised indications, it may be said that the SUN is a good influence bring light & cheerfulness into a situation.

The MOON indicates journeys over water, also feminine matters & motherhood, together with psychic things.

MARS brings strife & struggle & the strength courage & energy to meet them.

MERCURY governs communications, writing, travel & gaining of knowledge.

VENUS is the Planet that governs love matters, beauty, & artistic things.

SATURN indicates restriction, change, time, slowness & sometimes misfortune.

JUPITER brings good fortune, expansiveness & gain of wealth & money.

THE ACTUAL PROCEDURE OF DIVINATION IS AS FOLLOWS:

The stones are thrown within a circle made by the cord or witches' garter, coiled around upon the cloth or skin which is laid out smoothly upon the floor or table.

The words of an Old Welsh Charm are used when casting the stones:

ADA   ADA   IO   ADA   DIA. It is pronounced like this: " Ah-da, ah-da, ee-o  ah-da dee-a" Exactly what it means is now lost in the mist of time, but it is a traditional divination rune or formula of words of power, probably Celtic in origin.

Light a candle & stand it by your cord circle. The room should be dimly lit, or darkened if it is daylight. Light some incense & bless both flame & incense smoke. Bless both salt & water, then place a pinch of salt in the water & stir with wand or finger deosil 3 times, now with your wet finger mark your 3rd Eye & eyelids. Take time to relax & do some deep breathing , then think about your question. Now take up your stone bag & hold it to your third Eye for a moment & then return it to altar or floor. Take your athame & consecrate the cord circle with it, circling 3 times round the cord circle while saying these words: Witches' Garter, bind the spell.

 

13 Stones, the truth foretell.

Earth & Water, Wind & Flame,

Magic in the Old One's Name!

 

Now lay your athame aside & take out your stones. Hold them in your hands & warm them, shake them from hand to hand as your recite "Ada Ada Io Ada Dia " 3 times. When you are ready, cast stones completely at random into the cord circle, Then look carefully at the way they lie & consider & interpret them.

You may throw the stones 3 times at a sitting, but no more. This will allow for a general reading & two questions. [ This stone divination may also be done with Coven Esbat rites.]

To answer a question " YES" or "NO", a slightly different procedure is followed.

In this case, you use just 3 stones, one for affirmation, one for  negative & one for the indicator, laying the rest aside. You use the MAGIC stone for the indicator. If you are asking the question, " Shall I follow such & such a course of action?", then you use the JUPITER stone for affirmative & the SATURN stone for the negative. SHAKE THE STONES TOGETHER & RECITE THE RUNE AS BEFORE. Cast them into the circle, the answer will be told by which of the stones are nearest the indicator stone. If both are at equal distance, the answer is doubtful  & can indicate that the question was frivolous or insincere.

If however, you seek for guidance upon matters of a higher plane, clairvoyance by one of the various methods of scrying will be more suitable. Alternatively, you can make use of your Tarot cards, which have the advantage of being able to give insight into affairs of either the most mundane or the most metaphysical.

*Although Tarot cards are now very expensive to own or collect, many modern Wiccans, Pagans, Shamans & others, are photocopying as many different packs as possible & pasting them on good quality cardboard. These can be successfully used for readings & meditation. If you are artistic create your own Tarot pack by using the symbolism in any other pack that appeals to you. No one should be without the Tarot as a tool for magical work.

 

Gems & semi-precious gems are powerful additions to spells & ritual work, they are placed on Household Shrines, Garden Shrines & on the altar for Esbat & Festival rites. Stones are carried in putsi's or worn as charms & amplify any magical intention. Each stone has its own vibration, we are often attracted to them due to it. The Ancient peoples said that a gem would chose you as its caretaker & move on when the time was right, for they too grow spiritually by tuning into our vibration. Some stones will even shatter rather than stay where there is only negativity, others will mysteriously fall from their settings or grow dull so that their owner will discard them.
