Crystals Update – Shiva Lingam, Mookaite, Labradorite

If you’ve been following what I’ve been up to with crystals, you know that I’ve been learning more about them experientially.

After finishing and releasing the new channeled book Conscious Living, Conscious Dying by Ascended Master Djehuty a couple of weeks ago, I realized it was time to take a break from Djehuty for a bit. It’s natural for me to go in stages with him – some time on and then time off – but this time, instead of a break, I transitioned into working more with Archangel Metatron.

When I work with Metatron, I use a shiva lingam stone to access his frequency. I don’t know if this works for others or would work – it just started happening. A couple of years ago a client gave me one and I had no idea what I’d do with it. That was before I could track anything about crystals – in one ear and out the other. But it came to me for a reason, I knew. When I began bringing Metatron through for clients and in group events in August (after knowing him as a guide of mine since late 2004), he suggested I use this shiva lingam I hadn’t yet made a connection with. Now I use it as a bookmark to open my channel to his frequency quickly and easily, as I use tiger iron to access and adapt to Djehuty’s frequency.

Lately I’ve also been working with some mookaite, cutting and polishing some smaller pieces for my girlfriend and my mom. Mookaite I find opens me to new solutions to old problems, which is a property it’s said to have. It also, however, augments dreams. This aspect I don’t like so much because I’m in a long-term process of letting Plutonian stuff from under my surface to come up (transiting Pluto conjunct my IC), and in dreams it’s a lot of dreadful foreboding and dark storms forming and the like – not fun. If I actively work with mookaite then my dreams are full of that foreboding, which leaves me waking up on edge. I can come back from that place but sleeping soundly is at this point a craving.

One day last week I removed the rough piece on my girlfriend’s side of the bed and the smaller, pocket piece I’d given her to a lower floor for the night. The next day I brought them back in but didn’t – um – talk to them. I didn’t connect. I’ve noticed some of the effect in dreams but it’s not overwhelming. So perhaps I can simply act like they’re not there and things will be fine … I’m hoping. The experiment with  that continues.

Also I’ve been playing with a piece of labradorite, possibly the most beautiful thing I’ve seen. I picked up a small piece at the gem show here in Tucson in February and cut a bit off last week. I didn’t know how to cut it so it’s not as pretty as it could be, but I am getting some shimmery business from it. But I’m learning about the qualities of it, so it really doesn’t need to be pretty.

With this one, it’s hard now to pinpoint what it’s doing. It happens that I’m getting acupuncture for stress and edginess and that is really helping, so labradorite’s purported calming properties are not so obvious. Tonight I did notice a bit of that, but it’s been hard to discern.

It’s also said to be good for psychic abilities, which I perceive I do not need help with. Also said to be good for protection, but I don’t subscribe to the idea that I need protection. Tonight I read a great description from Stacie’s Metaphysical Corner of something I have experienced with labradorite, and phrased in a way that avoids all victim crap, what I often find when people discuss using crystals for protection:

Labradorite fills out my auric field so that my field is stronger and less permeable to the energies of other people, environments, etc.  It is similar to being within an egg of protection, even though it’s not technically “protection” in the way you might consider it.  It is protective and shielding because it makes me stronger and less vulnerable.  When I am energetically comfortable and buffered in this way, I am more able to be open to the “regular world” without compromising my own stability, and without having to shut down my sensitivities/empathy that might do some good for a few folks that wander in my direction.  So, basically, labradorite helps me to walk in both worlds at the same time too.

Recently I was given a small piece of ocean jasper, too, by someone at the rock shop. So there’s something with that for me to explore when the time is right. At this point, ocean jasper is in one ear and out the other.

If you’re interested in the tiger iron pieces I’ve charged with the frequencies of Ascended Master Djehuty and Archangel Metatron, check out the crystals page on my site. Right now a handful are available and in a couple of days (around 15Apr14) I’ll post about 10 more. The other day I posted there a note from a woman named Lynn in Pennsylvania who bought one for herself and then bought 3 more for loved ones. Here’s a bit from the email:

I can’t thank you enough for this gift! I’ve spent most of my life feeling disassociated from just about everything because of pain … emotional, mental, and physical pain. This stone, because of its grounding nature and loving comfortable feeling that Djehuty has given it, helps me to be “completely there.” This new sense of comfort and safety then makes it “ok” for my subconscious to let issues surface.
