I trust that the power and energy that exists between me and the rocks and stones that I have befriended is the same power and energy given to us from the Creator Source. This is the power of nature, and it exists within All Living Things. We are all a part of this energy, we live in it, and it flows in and around us – rocks, trees, pets, wildlife, people, fish, birds – and no matter where we live on Mother Earth, we are connected. Learning to listen to rocks, crystals and stones is not a difficult step to take; all it requires is an open heart and an open mind. With us moving closer and closer to 2012, rocks, crystals and stones are soon to take their rightful place within the order of things on Mother Earth. Our forefathers knew of their wisdom and used it to heal themselves and to communicate. We, too, can use this same energy in our now. The energies of rocks, stones and crystals are increasing and some are changing altogether. There is not much written about the change, but it is being given to any number of light and energy workers who are sharing this information in the best ways they can. I am only one of many who have chosen to hear what the stones have to say. Stones are more powerful than we think, we cannot hurt them by dropping, chipping or cracking them. When a stone, rock or crystal chips or cracks, it is a form of communication that the stone is ‘opening up’ for us. Rough edges, chips and cracks in a stone or crystal add to the rock’s character and experience. Often, these stones are considered ‘empathic’, meaning they have experienced pain and so, can help us to overcome pain in our own lives. Much the same way we have ‘smiley’ lines on our faces, so do rocks, stones and crystals have their own ‘smiley lines’. Don’t be afraid to speak with your rocks and crystals. Ask them to speak to you. Ask them to be your friend. Thank them for being in your life, and thank God for creating them, as well. 2012 ushers in a time of change, a time when bringing in the new is assisted by new thought, new age, and new attitudes. 2012 heralds the ushering in of personal, spiritual and planetary changes that will benefit all life forms on Planet Earth and within the multi-universes upward through the God planes. Every day, we are discovering new and useful ways to utilize tools from Mother Earth, communicate with her children, and each other. Crystal Healing: 2012 and Beyond was created with the intent of improving that communication between nature and humanity. As a youngster, I always remember talking to rocks and stones, picking them up, fondling them, putting them in my pockets. My folks just wrote it off as a little girl’s tomboy attitude, wanting to play with dirt, rocks and stones, but for me, it felt like something more. As I grew, so did my collection of rocks and stones, some of which I’ve carried with me for years and years. The fascination never ended, only improved over time as I began to realize that these little Earth gems held their own power, their own consciousness and if I listened …. they had a lot to say. The intent of this book is to help you understand more about the powers of rocks, crystals and stones, and how these energies are changing to suit the good of the whole in the New Age. I hope you find the information contained in this book useful and that it is accepted with pure intent for yourself and for those whose lives you touch.
