Do you worry? Do you like to pass out blessings for others? Here is a tool for you to make your own prayer or worry stones for you and others, and actually these stones don’t have to be just for prayers or worries how about you make it a manifesting stone to invite nothing but the best for yourself and others.
The concept behind this fun to make stone(s) is that if you rub the stone in your hand then it will help your prayers to be heard, make worries go away or just to make someone’s day. It physically puts something in your hand or their hand’s. This simple yet beautiful creation allows us to also be present for goals in our life along with allowing us to “Just Be “or just practice consciousness in one’s life.
Consider this too.....
Since ancient times, rock and stones have been assigned great meaning, symbolism, and significance by our ancestors. In part this is related to the endurance of stone as a marker, structure, or protective barrier. There is a great sense of release of worry and a form of connection which can internally calm and bring a sense of peace or simply a blessing for your day.
There could also be representation of another relationship honored in a mystical nature. This is reflected in folklore tales about spirits that are energetically connected to a stone in some meaningful way. Examples would be Runes, deity statues, fairy like related items, gargoyles, and other trinkets you deem to help and assist ourselves and others.
It is the belief of many people in the metaphysical world that stones are healing along with being a great addition to any self-care regimen. Gemstones can also be used to make healing elixirs, for protection and as part of welcoming any form of abundance.
How to choose your gemstone:
Choose a stone whose gemstone properties will work well with your energy or others energy if you’re not keeping it for yourself. Individual stones provide energy to align you and others with what is needed for that day, week, and month and so on. Consider Googling spiritual meanings of different stones you are aware of or pick up one of the many fantastic stone books and meanings up.
Pick a stone (no smaller than a coin the size of a quarter and no larger than the size of your palm). In the experiences of personally doing this exercise I do not recommend using a polished semiprecious stone. Instead choose a stone in its natural form.
Do not use petrified wood or a fossil.
The stone can come from the land of your ancestors, a local stone to the area of your birth or collected at your very own home. Maybe the stone comes from a local brook, pond, and lake or from one of the beaches your visiting.
It is not advisable to chip away or break off a piece of stone from a sacred temple, standing stone, or some old ruins at any ancient sacred site.
What to purchase for clay stones:
3 to 4 packages of Fimo Soft and Soft Effect Clay.
You can usually purchase the clay at the local Michael's or JoAnne's Stores or any local art supply store.
Below are step-by-step photo directions to make your own worry stones.
Step 1: Pull off a small amount of 2-3 colors of clay.
Step 2: Push the clay together to form a ball.
Step 3: Roll and twist the clay in your hand to make a 'snake'.
Step 4: Either take your 'snake' and smoosh it together (yes that is the technical term!) or coil it.
Step 5: Roll it into a ball.
Step 6: Press your thumb into the ball until you have an indentation that you can rub your thumb in.
Once you have made several worry stones you need to bake them at 230 degrees for 30 minutes.
Tip: Bake them in foil pans so there is absolutely no clean up.
How to empower your stone if you purchased one:
Cleaning and clearing your crystals that you have purchased is very important. Depending on where you purchased the stone from, there may have been several people handling the stone, thus subjecting the stone to multiple energies, good or bad.
Here are a few ways to do this:
Salt (Himalayan, Sea, or any others you may know of) & water: give your stone a bath overnight in any bowl will do. Warning if your stone has metal in it, or is brittle a salt bath is not beneficial. Another beautiful addition would be to add sage, basil, lavender or other herbs you feel spiritually connected with to the water to enhance the cleansing affects.
Simple and so effective hold the stone under running water. As you do so, put intention in the stone by asking the Universe to remove all negativity.
You can use with other ideas or separately: Sage, Palo Santo, Herbs, and incense of your desire to smudge and cleanse the stone.
Now that you have cleansed them it’s time to program your item:
Take a moment placing the item in the left hand as this is your receiving hand. Stand inside or out in the sunlight or the moonlight and begin to dedicate and program the item you have chosen. Focus on the intended use of the crystal (healing a specific dis-ease, protection or love).
By taking this moment you create a connection with the energy you are trying to achieve. It is important to put intention into the item for your highest good or if the item is for another.
Remember you do what you deem as an uplifting prayer along with dedicating love to them in the highest good. Choose your own words from simple to complex, choose pre-written prayers or scriptures.
You’re welcome to say this: “I dedicate this crystal to the highest good. I ask that it be used in love and light for myself or others.
Once you’ve ensured the crystal's purpose, finish the process by saying: I dedicate this crystal for the (purpose).
How to use your hand made, found, or purchased stones:
It is recommended to wear the stones for seven days to further connect with them. If you decide to take this route, wear your stone on the left-side of your body, possibly close to your heart, in your pocket and on your skin.
Take a moment and tune into the relaxing power of a stone by rubbing the smooth indented surface of the stone. When force is applied on the stone, the nerves within your thumb that release natural endorphins are activated, bringing about a state of calm relaxation. Just rub your thumb on the stone to relieve your stress and easy to carry in your pocket, ready to bring you a sense of what ever state of mine you are requiring at this time.
Note to reader: Most crystals are fragile, so tender love and care is essential to your crystals' longevity. Some gemstones fade after prolonged exposure to sunlight. When you’re not using your crystals, place them in a pouch or wrap them in a silk scarf to keep them safe.
