Seer Stones – Divine Prophecy or Windows to the Soul?

Seer stones are healing crystals with a window or flat edge on one side of the stone. Psychics and crystal empaths use these stones to see into the “future” or foretell future events.

Seer stones are typically those healing crystals with a “window” or flat edge to the side of the stone. These are also called “Emu eggs” and window stones among other names. Usually they are larger stones but any size can be considered a Seer Stone.

My interest was piqued when I had shamanic practitioners purchasing large quantities of these stones in order to access other worlds!

I discovered that many crystal healers and psychics use the stones to “look” into the stone and predict the future of the client based on what they see. Please understand, I have never had this ability to see anything when looking into the window of the crystal.

ARE SEER STONES THE URIM AND THUMMIN OF THE BIBLE?

The Bible refers to the Urim and Thummin and this is still a mystery as to what it is was. Many believe it is a set of items that contained two stones, seer stones, or perhaps it was just the stones themselves. These stones were believed to be attached to a rod or stick and used for revelations of things in the future or even matters in the past.

Urim and Thummin as seer stones were instruments which God used to give people visions or words of prophecy. The early church believed that God gave mankind revelations through inspiration, voices, tongues of an unknown language that others would interpret, through dreams, visions, angelic visitations, Urim and Thummin (seer stones), or through visitation by God or Jesus, the ultimate sources.

To be clear, there is a difference in a prophet and a seer. A prophet is a Greek word meaning “one who foretells future events” or a “spokeman.” In the Bible, the seer comes before the prophet and is considered a type of “forerunner” to the prophet/ The seer might even be considered greater than the prophet.

The seer had the added gift of “seership” – having the gift of seeing that which God chooses to reveal. A seer actually “sees” a vision with his/her eyes and makes a prediction based on what he/she sees. The seer may “see” these visions either in the sky, through the seer stones, or through water or other objects.

Throughout history, mankind has used crystals as instruments of divination with the powers of spiritualism for good and for evil. Primitive people believed in the magical powers of quartz crystals. These are still used for power and energy by the aborigines of Australia and Polynesia, as well as native Americans in North America.

Not only seer stones but regular crystals, sticks, quartz crystals, crystal balls, and crystal skulls are used today as a medium to obtain visions and prophecies. However, there is a distinct scarcity of God’s seers. In fact, the church today frowns on seers and the use of crystals to prophecy and provide revelations. A lack of divine seers in today’s world was foretold by the ancient seers who said it would lead to a path of evil and darkness.

USES OF SEER STONES TODAY

There are other, more practical uses of seer stones than just telling the future. People use seer stones to find lost items. One customer used hers to locate her lost dog. Another said that she used her seer stone to find her lost keys one morning when she was desperate and late for work.

Energy workers recount experiences that their seer stones have enabled them to access other dimensions. Shamanic practitioners indicate the same type of help and of being able to access other “worlds.”

One gentleman uses his stone to find placer gold in the desert.

Any type of use of the seer stone should be considered to be a gift of God to help direct and guide mankind to lighten the path of life.

Toxic Crystals – A Contradiction in Terms?

Toxic Healing Crystals List Revised 7/4/2017 – this list is not inclusive and not all of these are considered dangerous. But they do have the potential to be TOXIC. Always check online to see if the crystals you are using are dangerous to ingest or handle. Use your best judgement and if in doubt, use the indirect method for elixirs. Always wash your hands with soap and water after handling healing crystals and minerals.

The Skinny on TOXIC Crystals

 Lately, it seems like many crystal practitioners are getting very casual in their approach to crystals. Gemstone elixirs are the new buzzword and everyone and their favorite celebrity are ingesting these “sacred waters.”  And then there are the crystal “newbies” who think that because crystals are “natural,” that they are safe. After all, they come out of Mother Gaia, what can be safer than that?

Perhaps it is because I have worked in the environmental health field for thirty years and am a natural cynic and it doesn’t help that I am on every POISON TOXIC ACCIDENTAL DEATH Listserv in the world BUT… Please Please Please… Use caution when making crystal elixirs.

Dangerous healing crystal seems like a contradiction in terms, doesn’t it? However, there are many, many healing crystals which are not safe to ingest, place in the mouth, or place in direct method water elixirs because they contain toxic trace elements. Some, like Galena, should only be handled with gloves. Always wash your hands with soap and water after handling crystals even the nontoxic ones.

Be very aware of the crystals that you use and know which ones pose a threat to you, your family, your pets, and your clients.

Remember that healing crystals come from the mining industry. The mining industry uses very toxic products in the mining process. A good example of this is ARSENIC. Yes, arsenic. These products remain on and possibly even seep into the crystal. Other crystals have trace minerals and elements within their very makeup which render them dangerous. Some crystals have aluminum, copper, sulfur, or other toxic minerals in their chemical makeup.

This is NOT a comprehensive list of all the dangerous crystals. This is a list of commonly used healing crystals and includes crystals that most crystal practitioners will have in their inventory. The crystal practitioner is responsible for the elixirs and remedies that they give to their clients. Please research the crystals that you use in direct method elixirs. It is my recommendation, however, that the crystal practitioner always use the indirect method for their clients. You can never be too careful.

 

USE THE INDIRECT METHOD FOR ELIXIRS

Water holds vibration. So it is not necessary to place the crystal directly into the water. The indirect method is done by placing the crystal in a small glass bowl and then placing that bowl in a larger bowl of spring water. The water should rise above the crystal but not co-mingle with the crystal. The water will resonate with the crystal through the glass bowl and hold the vibration of the crystal without ever touching the crystal itself.

Indirect Method Step 1– place the crystal in the small glass bowl (no water) and then place the first bowl within a larger glass bowl with enough water to be above the level of the crystal in the first bowl. Place in sunlight or moonlight for several hours. Cover with a glass lid or any type of cling film. The water without the crystal becomes the elixir. Do not co-mingle the crystal with the water.

Step 2. Bottle and Preserve

Make the Mother Elixir. Unless you will be using the elixir that same day, a preservative must be used or the elixir will become stagnant. Bottle with 1/3 elixir mixture (water from step 1) and 2/3 brandy, vodka, or cider vinegar. This is the Mother Elixir from which small dosages will be made.

Dosage Amount. Take a smaller glass bottle and add 2/3 preservative and 1/3 spring water. Add seven drops of the Mother Elixir.

Spray Bottle. To make a spray, add seven drop of Mother Elixir to pure or spring water if using immediately that day. If not, add vodka as the preservative to the mixture. Vodka has no smell and works well in the crystal spray elixir.

Step 3. How to Use:

The Elixir can be taken orally throughout the day by holding the water in the mouth for a few seconds.  If you have a dropper, drop three – seven drops under the tongue throughout the day.

Elixirs can be rubbed on the body in the affected area or at the wrist. This can also be added to bath water.

For spray mixtures, spray around the aura of the ill person or around the room. This will help clear out any negative energy from the room of a sick person or a room where negative energy has set up shop.

REMEMBER

Use the indirect method for crystal elixirs.

Research the crystals you use for remedies and elixirs.

Always wash your hands with soap and water after handling crystals.

Be aware of the crystals in your inventory such as GALENA which should be handled with plastic gloves. Certain toxins can actually penetrate the skin and get absorbed BEFORE you have time to go wash your hands.

5 Crystals You can Use Now to Facilitate Ascension

It is widely believed that 1985 ushered in the Age of Aquarius. Swiftly following that, the Harmonic Convergence of 1987 occurred and began spreading Ascension energies over the entire face of the Earth. Ascension raises the human body’s vibrations into higher frequencies and into higher realms. The ultimate goal is to become a light body, whether here at this time or in another time or realm or dimension. If you feel like you are undergoing Ascension, you should encourage and embrace the process. Do not fight it. Think positive thoughts, stop negative thoughts and actions, and deflect negativity away from you. It will only be a positive experience. Ascension does not necessarily mean you will LEAVE the Earth, but will be operating at a higher frequency. You will no longer let the worries and annoyances of the world get to you.

One way you can facilitate Ascension is through the use of healing crystals. Five great healing crystals to use during this process are Herkimer Quartz, Labradorite, Moldavite, Spirit Quartz, and Clear Quartz.

Herkimer Diamonds blue

Herkimer Quartz
are also known as Herkimer Diamonds. These are a type of Quartz crystal found in Herkimer County, New York. They have a high, harmonious energy and are perfect for dream work, meditation, crystal layouts and grids, as jewelry, or to use as energy tools in Reiki or other energy modalities. Herkimers can assist in purifying your energy field and to attune you to the Divine Light. Herkimers broadcast their own energy as well as pick up and magnify the frequencies and energies of other crystals. Wearing Herkimer jewelry keeps you in constant connection with the Divine Light or Spiritual Source. Herkimer Quartz also put you in contact with the angelic realm so are wonderful if you are wanting to communicate with your angel. They work well in dream recall and dreamwork. Herkimers pair well with Moldavite, Celestite, Danburite, and Phenacite as well as all types of Azeztulite.

When I think of Labradorite I think of protection and magic. It is a great protection stone as well as using during Ascension to open up the hidden psychic abilities including clairvoyance, telepathy, access to Akashic records, past life recall, astral travel, and more. It is inter-dimensional and gives out an energy which cuts through the veil separating our world and the other realms. Use on the Third Eye to see visions of the future. It can be used to increase coincidences in your life, those happy synchronistic events that occur that can change the path of your life forever. Labradorite works well with Moonstone, Sunstone, and Golden Labradorite. It is particularly useful with Moldavite in transforming in the Higher Self.

Moldavite leave 1

Moldavite is truly a crystal out of this world! When I think of Moldavite, I think of transformation and rapid spiritual growth. It is also a stone of protection and synchronicity. Moldavite is a Tektite, a type of extraterrestrial glass that is ejected with the debris of a meteorite. It is found only in the Bohemian plateau of the Czech Republic. Since I am 1/4 Bohemian, this crystal rocks my world! I love it and can not get enough of it

Moldavite has been considered a sacred stone since waaaaaay back. It was found in altar amulets dated 25,000 BC. That is old! Czech folklore believes that Moldavite can guide you to your true destiny and your one true love. It has been linked to the Stone of the Holy Grail.

Moldavite facilitates rapid spiritual transformation. It can be utilized to make dramatic life changes and re-prioritize your life so be ready when you start carrying this one! It attracts everything to your highest good and gets rid of those things that do not contribute to your highest good. This might include changes in your relationships, love life, job, home, diet, and even personal goals. It will awaken your true destiny and put you on the right path. Moldavite is a trickster, disappearing and then reappearing in your life. I lose mine constantly! And then, there they are back again sitting on a shelf or on my dresser.

Moldavite works well with Herkimer Diamonds and all types of Quartz. It will energize the effects of other healing crystals.

Spirit Q xxx

Spirit Quartz is a type of Quartz found only in South Africa and is usually covered with Amethyst or Citrine points. It is quite beautiful. Spirit Quartz helps you transform into the Higher Self. It offers purification and protection as well as spiritual evolution. It will merge your inner life with your outer life so that your everyday self becomes your Higher Self. Spirit Quartz is best used during meditation, and will bring peace of mind and freedom from fear.

Amethyst Spirit Quartz is useful in detaching entities and negative attachments from your body as well as repairing holes in your etheric body.

Spirit Quartz works best with Quartz and Beryl crystals. It can be used with Moldavite to speed up its effects.

Rock Crystal Med 2

Clear Quartz or Rock Crystal
is the everything stone. It is the most abundant of minerals and is found everywhere. Clear Quartz is the most powerful and versatile crystal in the world. It amplifies energy, is easily programmed, and keeps a memory of what has been programmed into it. Clear Quartz is a stone of Light and brings enhanced spirituality to those who carry and wear the stone. It can be used to amplify the energy of other stones and is perfect in grids and layouts. Clear Quartz can be used for any possible purpose you can think up – from using in grids, for healing, past-life recall, dreamwork, interdimensional travel, sending love, attracting love, generating wealth, repairing relationships, aligning chakras, and more.

Clear Quartz works well with all other stones and will amplify the energy of any stones it is worn or used with.

When we start using crystals, our crystals become attuned to our vibrations. They then can guide and direct our subconscious and conscious thoughts. Spiritual transformation will become a way of life when you begin using crystals. As you continue on your journey to Ascension, you will think of many more ways to use crystals in your everyday life. Their potential is limitless.

When we consciously connect with the Ascension energies, our lives begin to have more direction and more purpose. Old, negative programming and negative energy will cease to have an effect on us. We will be more open to new ideas and communicate more freely with family, friends, strangers, nature, and other life forms. Enjoy the journey!Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
