Another 80s reference I couldn't resist. "I'll tumble for ya"
My candles all have quotes, and our Chakra candles are just beautiful!! This 'journey' or (probably more aptly called a tangent) of mine into crystals stems from my love of affirmations, yoga and all things positive!! I'm so very blessed to have you all travel this road with me.
Tumbled stones are small, rounded, and brightly polished rocks, crystals, and minerals.
Tumble stones are created by putting rough rocks in a machine called a rock tumbler. It tumbles the rocks until their edges and surfaces become smooth, shiny, and polished.
What are tumbled stones for?
You can use your tumbled stones and crystals for chakra healing. Placing your stones on energy sensitive spots, like your chakras, is a great way to connect with your crystals. If you are unsure which stones connect with which chakra, remember this:
- red and black stones for the root chakra,
- orange stones for the sacral chakra,
- yellow and gold stones for the solar plexus chakra,
- green and pink stones for the heart chakra,
- blue stones for the throat chakra,
- purple and indigo stones for the third eye chakra and
- white and violet stones for the crown chakra.
You will find that certain chakras will be more sensitive to certain stones. Find more information about your chakras here!
Another way to deepen your connection with your tumbled stones and healing gemstones is to sleep with them. Placing them underneath your pillow or next to you while you sleep will create a powerful connection with your crystals, especially if you set a clear intention for them before you go to sleep. You can also carry your new healing stones around with you for a couple of days, always keeping them with you. Remember to write your dreams down! Keeping a dream journal is easy!!
When using tumbled stones and crystals, the easiest thing to do is to pick some stones that you feel drawn to and place them around your home and work area. By doing this you can create a positive, healing vibration in your space. You can add any other stones to enhance the energies further, depending on your needs and desires. Some people strategically place protection stones at the openings of their homes, while others concentrate their collections in a meditation room or personal altar. People in difficult work environments often place a stone on their desks which can transform negative energies. Outdoors, you can place stones at your land boundaries or in a grid pattern around the house, garden or quiet areas of your home. All of these simple ways can benefit and affect a persons day-to-day experience, and also those who enter your space. I'm a big believer in intuition.. Find a stone that speaks to you... That intrigues you.. Mine is the malachite. Soooo beautiful! I'm slowly learning about this stone, then finding ways to incorporating it into my day to day life.
Then of course you can wear your stones! Put them in your pocket, or wear them around your neck. We sell Rough Crystal Pendants and we will be getting in cages that you can pop your stones into so stay tuned!
