The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
— W.B. Yeats
PALM STONES are exactly what they sound like. Stones that are meant to sit comfortably in your palm. Some people use them passively, to sit and meditate, or actively, to worry them with thumbs or fingers. The large variation nestles right in the middle of your palm, but are still small enough to fiddle with.
Howlite – Formulates ambitions and aids in achieving them. Strengthens memory and stimulates desire for knowledge. Teaches patience and helps to eliminate rage, pain and stress as a calming stone.
Lapis – Encourages self-awareness and truth. Promotes self-expression, enhancing qualities of honesty, compassion and friendship. Stimulates objectivity, clarity and encourages creativity.
Red Jasper – Waking up and energizing, but balancing that aggressive energy into something more dynamic. As such, can be thought of a bit of a mood stabilizer. Deep connection to the earth element, protection and grounding.
Pyrite – Very protective stone, specifically against environmental pollution and physical danger. Shields from negative energy of all kinds. Blocks energy leaks and promotes good physical health and emotional well-being.
Moonstone – A stone of inner growth and strength. Soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilizes emotional balance. Enhances intuition, and promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in both love and business matters.
Tiger Eye – A stone of protection and good luck. Has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, assisting us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety.
