My love of rocks

Over the past several years I’ve developed a deep love and appreciation for rocks.  I’ve collected quite a few and have them displayed beautifully in my home.  To the unassuming eye my rock collection will appear as just that – a collection of rocks.  To the trained or experienced eye it will appear as much more.

There are certain rocks in my collection which are actually used as spiritual tools for my home.  For example – at the entrance to my home there is a large piece of granite.  Granite is special to me for several reasons.  The mountains which surround the valley I grew up in are made up mostly of granite.  Granite has spiritual properties of helping one to feel more grounded and balanced.  By having a piece of granite at the entrance to my home it allows those who visit me to feel more deeply the peace of the space I welcome them into.

I have on my bookshelf a large piece of obsidian.  This piece is stunning in its raw beauty and attracts a lot of attention.  One should be careful when handling my obsidian however because it is sharp and likely to cut you.  In addition to that obsidian is somewhat of a filter for negative energy.  It absorbs any negativity in its vicinity and defuses it into positive energy.  The problem with this is that all the negative energy is stored in the obsidian, so when you touch it you should be cognizant of that fact and touch it with caution.

I have several pieces of petrified wood in my home.  Petrified wood is a great tool for past life work.  Petrified wood has ties to this earth which are much older than most of the other things around us, and at one time it was alive and vibrant.  I’ve only had my pieces of petrified wood for a short period of time (less than a year) and so my work with these pieces has been somewhat limited as of now.

I have two very personal rocks.  These are my babies and if you look closely at them, you can tell that I have a very close bond with them.  One is a small piece of granite which I can hold in the palm of my hand – we’ve already discussed the properties of granite, so I won’t go into that again.  The other is a crystal.  I was recently told that it is Orange Calcite.  This crystal was given to me by my oldest daughter only a few months before she went to live with my sister. 

For the first several years the crystal was in my possession I had no idea of the power it held.  One night I was meditating holding the crystal and the granite (a different piece than I have now) and before I knew it I was having an out-of-body experience.  This was my first clue as to the power of my crystal.  Since that discovery I’ve used my crystal for a variety of things.  I’ve used it to help me sleep at night, to cure body pains I was experiencing, to cleanse mine and several of my friends homes of negative energies, and as a meditation tool. 

As I delved into a greater understanding of rocks I also began learning about herbs, natural remedies for illnesses and spiritual energy work.  Recently I started learning about Tarot and found that I have an innate talent for doing Tarot work.  I realize that I am still a novice at using the tools I have, but I have a great desire within me to learn about my talents and skills and to share those with others.

About Ms Fihaki

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I’m supposed to write about me – who I am as a person and I really don’t see the sense in that considering that when you read my posts you will learn more about me as a person than you would from any 500 word statement I could make. I will however play by the rules – just this once. I’m 36 years young. I consider myself a strong independant and beautiful woman (hey! I wrote about that! Check it out!). I’m single and love it. Just over a year ago I made some serious lifestyle changes which include eliminating alcohol from my diet, being more physically active, eating healthier and daily working on my spirituality. One of the things which has happened as a result of these lifestyle changes is that I’ve gained a level of clarity I never knew was possible. With this clarity comes the realization that my words affect the lives of those around me. I’ve always been much better at writing than at speaking. If I can affect people the way I do from speaking, just imagine the effect I can have with the written word! I had been blogging about my secret life doing sensual massage – but I wasn’t getting a lot of traffic or interraction from that blog. Upon the suggestion of several friends I decided to start this – my public blog. My hope is that this will allow my readers to interact with me, a real live human being and that together we can create a ripple effect of positivity throughout the universe! (yea I dream big – it’s a must!) Anywho – I sincerely hope you enjoy the things I have to say and interractions are welcome and encouraged! Be Well!

  1. I am a pure nut over rocks too and have one from every state and country that I have visited. I even smuggled one from an active volcano in Italy. Kinda proud of that!

    • Oh man! I’m so jealous of your Volcanic rock from Italy! I’ve taken pictures of my two “special rocks” and a couple of others, mayhaps I’ll post them on my blog to share their beauty!
