STONES – In the Indigenous ways of being family with all of nature and her family; the rock people are the ancient ones who have been on this sweet earth the longest. They are the guardians, the protectors. the foundation form for our sacred wheel. Their energetic presence supports integrity and connectivity w/all the family of life, light and nature.
In addition to the stones commonly revered there was the reflection that we are all the Earth’s family whether a rock, an animal, a bird, an element—earth air, fire, water, metal—a symbol, a plant—seed, green growth, flower, seeds–. I discovered similar power animals from the winged ones who fly–the great birds—hawks, eagles, all birds: four-leggeds— the buffalo, horse, dog, cat, wolf, lion, deer: to those who swim in the waters—fish, dolphins and those that can do both water and land– frogs, turtles, salamanders; to those who represent transformation because they have stages to their lives—butterfly, frog and the plant kingdom—seed, green growth, flower, seeds–.
These representative, these earth teachers each exemplify a prayer, a petitioning, a request for a being during various life challenges or changes. (A caterpillar knows instinctively that it must spin a cocoon. When finished it will use the protection it has made to turn itself into a beautiful butterfly. When the time is right, the butterfly will break through the cocoon and stretch its wings to meet the world.)
The Medicine necklace with each deliberate collection of stones and fetishes, emit a frequency, a vibrational language that recognizes outside nature reflects inside nature. The color tones deliberate to invite elements of Nature, earth, water, fire, air, metal/ mineral.
