Cleansing and Empowering


Choosing gems and stones
You find yourself in a store staring at a container filled with one
particular stone. Which one do you purchase? The biggest one? The one with
the shape you like the best? How do you know?
When I go to a store to buy gems, I take some things into consideration.
Many stones have a variety of qualities. I think about what I want the stone
for. There are a variety of different ones to chose from, decided on the
stone to suit your need.
Sometimes one will immediately catch your attention. If that happens you may
choose that one.

Other times you will just see a collection of stones. Using your receptive
hand (the one you don't write with) dig your hand in and sift through them.
You should be left with a few in your hand. Put them aside and hold each one
individually for a moment with your eyes closed. Does it have a comfortable
feeling? Do you like the feeling you get from holding or rubbing it? These
are the ones to buy. You may feel vibrations from stones and gems; there is
life pulsing through them. Try to 'tune in' to their vibrations. It may take
time but it's worth the wait.

Cleansing
Any residual emotions that may have been transferred to the stone prior to
purchase should be cleaned off.
Wrap each stone that's to be cleaned in a cloth, and bury it in an
undisturbed place for a period of time, preferably 3, 9 or 13 hours, days,
weeks or months. The longer the period of time, the better the cleaning.
Other ways include placing the stones in a bowl of salt, free running water,
suspending in a fire, or under a fire, or just suspended so that nothing is
touching them. Any of the elements can be used; leave it in sunlight, rain,
or any place you'd feel comfortable.

Empowering
Now, you have to tell the stone what you want it to do, you do this simply
by gathering energy, then when you feel you've raised enough, place it into
the stone, then verbally, or visually tell it what needs to be done.
This process should also be done for runes, or magickal equipment.

BIRTHSTONES

There are two different types of birth stones.
Birthstones-determined by the month you were born
Astrological Birthstones-determined by your zodiac sign

Many people don't relize that there is sometimes a difference between their birthstone and their zodiac stone. Your birthstone is based on the month that you were born in, while your zodiac stone (a.k.a. astrological birthstone) is based on the exact date your birthday falls on.

For example, if your birthday was on March third, you could choose between your zodiac stone(Diamond), or the March stone(Aquamarine).

Here is a list of the Zodiac stones and the dates they fall under.
