JUNE 2010

Hi Folks;

Seems like chaos has become the order of our times. Many people seem to be passing over (or at least, I seem to know of a lot of people passing over). Recently, many of our community have experienced some very trying times as young and old are departing in some very difficult circumstances. Today, a friend from Costa Rica solicited some support. His nine year old son had witnessed the murder of a friend. How to support his son is confusing, as the local culture tends to be very violent. Hence, though a degree of mourning is expressed, it is done quickly and life moves on as each is trying to survive.

Our anniversary is June 1st, which is also the anniversary of my mother-in-law's passing over three years ago. I make meaning of it as a wonderful reminder to celebrate life and our marriage.

Amongst all of this chaos, I sense an order is surfacing. I do not want to say it is a new order, for it does not feel new. Rather, it is an old, familiar and maybe forgotten order. I have complex images of our interconnectedness becoming strengthened like an illuminating matrix. Prayers are a clear example. Several people in the community have requested prayers for a variety of reasons. The matrix of the community illuminated immediately upon sending the prayer request via email. The sender realized that the entire community had energetically connected with her, like angels folding their wings about her, exactly when she pushed the send button. I sense this is happening all the time like a quickening of energies. Such a wondrous time, if we slow down long enough to feel it.

Personally, I have experienced this quickening by being called to return to some stones that started my original journey into the healing energies of crystals. About 15 years ago, I was meditating and dancing around the universe with phenocite and moldavite. Using these were fun and totally ungrounding. It nearly created a break in my earth-bound consciousness. Suddenly, I understood that I needed to become more fully embodied with spirit before I would be able to expand my light body further into the ethers. In the last month, I have begun the process to use these stones to expand my grounded spirit body to function like granite--connecting heaven to earth and spirit to body.

Consistent with this quickening, the October 29-31, 2010 Halloween workshop will be Crystal Integration. We will illuminate our crystal light body with the assistance of an abundance of quartz crystals, thunderous drums, and your willingness to allow yourself to raise yourself to a higher vibration. Generally, there will be a mix of crystal atonement (or attunement depending on your preference) by surrendering (allowing in) to the energy without seeking specific healing or insight. It is a time to trust the higher self, spirit guides or divine ones to lift our souls. I ask that everyone bring eight (8) pieces of granite. Size does not matter, just that you attune to the granite. We are going to create sacred containers to support your journeys. I hope to see you there.

Bountiful Blessings,


phenocitePhenocite (Phenakite): #9

It is highly stimulative to the 3rd eye, allowing energy of that center to be activated and to be carried throughout the body, producing an awareness of the complete cellular structure. It facilitates deep mediation (no kidding), promoting an inner knowing with respect to the aspects associated with each of the chakras.

It can bring the way of love, the way of the heavenly being, into one's physical reality. The corresponding energy center is in the etheric body, above the crown chakra of the physical body. Placement of the stone above the body can provide a noticeable flowing of energy which covers, connects, and inter-penetrates the total physical body. It is an excellent stone for healing, producing clear energy patterns of the ethereal to stimulate the healing of the physical.

It is a gathering stone, gathering the energies of other stones in healing situations and facilitating the effectiveness of the healing; this is a case where the sum is actually greater than the individual parts.

Application of phenocite to any chakra produces an expedient clearing, cleansing, and activating effect. It can provide purification to the total body structure, energy centers, and energy pathways, while providing for a connection to other planes of existence.

The phenocite from Zimbabwe, Minas Gerais and other Brazilian locations, does indeed contain a caretaker, although many minerals contain personal caretakers, the caretaker of phenocite crystals is quite easily accessed. The caretaker virtually knocks at your door before you can even think about the contact. It should be noted that some of the phenocite from Minas Gerais is tumbled. This does not decrease the quality of the stones, but rather adds a mellowness and softness to the energy.

The phenocite from Zimbabwe, Minas Gerais and other Brazilian locations produces a pathway for travel within the dimensions. The travel being on a high awareness level and the experiences being quite spiritual.

The phenocite from Madagascar appears to provide for a connection with a type of "mothership" from another dimension. Much information can be gained from this connection. It is said to be connected to the realm of materialism, producing an advantageous and prompt response to that which one wishes to bring into actuality.

Phenocite is very much related to divination, the practice of seeking knowledge of the future and/or of the unknown by spiritual means. I find that the qualities are unique to the different source locations. As a divination energy, it clearly opens ones third eye.

Phenocite from Colorado is like a masculine angelic energy. For some this may seem to be a paradoxical energy as angelic energy is most often associated with the feminine or goddess energy. It supports the person by providing insights that can lead to discovery of forms of courage that has been outside the awareness of the person, hence untapped. It gently forces us to show up at all levels of existence by bringing the divine masculine into our life.

Padagascarian PhenociteMadagascarian Phenocite is like the great mother energy--not the great mother as in the great mother earth, but as in the mother of the great mother earth. For me, this is the divine feminine energy that requires one to go into the divine Darkness to find the divine Self. For those that seek more than the typical intellectual understanding of the "dark night of the soul,"; this stone will provide the light into the darkness of your soul and support you during the divine suffering that will teach humility, compassion, and acceptance of self and others.

Brazilian Phenocite seems to be a pinpoint of light, similar to a laser. As a divination tool, it seems to be able to bring clarity to issues just beyond the reach of normal consciousness. It appears to encourage us to look a little deeper or a little further so as to find the pearls of awareness that await us.

Russian Phenocite is earthy. It is very expansive initially, then once the spirit or energy field is open and large enough, it seems to shoot deep into the soul of the self and of the earth. As a divination tool, it appears to bring the spirit into the soul to create a sense of heaven and earth within oneself, which is the purpose of living. We are learning how to fully be who we are, spirit trying to be fully embodied.

Montana Phenocite is implosive. Like all phenocites, it opens the third eye and creates expansive crown chakras. However, it has an implosive dimension that seems like a form of nuclear fusion. It reminds me of Montanan smokey quartz. Some of this quartz has been exposed to radioactive energies. Harmless in terms of radioactivity, the exposure to the energy creates an opportunity to implode into other dimensions.

Recently, African phenocite has been discovered. I find it has all the traits that I love about phenocite and it has a lower price.

MoldaviteMoldavite: #2 & #6

It is a stone to serve the inhabitants of this planet. It stimulates cooperation between those of ET origins and those who are experiencing life on Earth. It carries one beyond the mirage of life, to a home from which one has been absent, providing the image of eternity and the vision and energy to translate the image into reality.

It holds immense potential for direct interdimensional interconnectedness between one's consciousness and the higher planes of light. It expands the scope and the magnitude of the vibrational spectrums which one can approach, while allowing for a more encompassing passageway to those spectrums of which one already has access; that is, one will see more clearly and will see with an expansion of vision within the vibrational territory to which one has ventured, and/or one will be provided the inter-connection with the multi-dimensional horizons not yet experienced.

MoldaviteIt works best with the third eye, throat and in the area of the crown. When used in the hands, it has also stimulates the capability to feel the form of the message and sometimes the form of the communicator from whence the message comes.

It works well with quartz, which adds amplification, stabilization, and a wide range of energy to the focused and specific access capabilities of Moldavite. It also works well with sugilite, celestite, aquamarine, diamond, lapis, and opal, producing overwhelming combinations of qualities which are quite conducive to healing.

Do not cleanse with salt. The stone is softer and more fragile in composition.

Michael's Gemstone Dictionary: It enables one to communicate telepathically with sentient beings, both human and non-human. The other sentient beings on this planet are whales and dolphins. This stone also aids one to connect telepathically with sentient beings on other planets.


I love to unwrap moldavite. The crown immediately begins to open and form a six inch in diameter ray of energy/light pouring into my head and body. These new specimens are no different than prior ones.

I was drawn to use the two pieces to clear and cleanse the second chakra, placing one on each side about an inch below the navel. The area gently opened as if letting go of something. Shortlly afterwards, an energy burst from the depths of the abdomen directly beneath the navel. The energy felt quite old. As it approached the surface of the skin, it widened to about six inches and exploded on the skin like a euphoric overtone: the modavite flush.

I would use these on any part of the body as the vibration is quite high and could be used to raise denser parts of the body frozen from events in the part or stuck in unspent emotions.

As I ponder all of its possible uses, it reminds me in some ways of being a celestial malachite.
