"Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources believe that Shaman Stones are deeply connected with the Earth. The stones are both grounding and energizing. Shaman Stones may be useful in connecting with one’s animal guides, and in providing psychic protection. They may also help with the purification of negative energies. Use on the third eye is said to enhance psychic abilities. Shaman stones have been used for centuries by spiritual tribal members (Shaman) and other mystics. They are considered sacred among the sages of many ancient tribes. The stones have been used in rituals to contact extra-terrestrials, spirit vision quests and astral journeying.
Unlike most crystals, Shaman stones don’t need any special treatment or care such as energising in the light of the full moon. They are thought to be able to realign the energy centres, relieve energy blockage, stimulate Chi energy, ground, and centre and protect a person who wears one on their body or carries one or more on themselves. The stones are said to be equally balanced between grounding and energizing and may act as a connector to the Earth’s energies.
As indicated above, Shaman stones have metaphysical properties. These properties can be used for or related to the following:
aligning the energy centres; stimulating the Chi; bringing knowledge of both the ancient and future ways to the user; a preventive shield against numerous forms of negative energy, working on the physical, etheric, and emotional plains; for grounding, centring and protecting oneself; allowing for and understanding Earth healing; used for treating emotional and physical rigidity, instability, constrictions and restrictions; and finally, though not exhaustively it has been used to teach a person that the bonds and restrictions placed upon people are self-imposed and discarded easily. To take advantage of the energy of Shaman stones you need to lie down and relax. Hold a stone in your hand, or one in each hand. If you’re receptive to their energy it is believed that you’ll soon feel warmth coming up your arms. Depending on what your intentions are and your mood, all kinds of fascinating things can begin to happen… or maybe you’ll just faze out of consciousness for a while."
