The mineral element includes stones. They are the wisdom keepers of the earth. They tell the stories. They tell the history. Have you ever meditated upon a stone? Try it some time. They contain endless stories. They express what was happening at the time of their formation, reflecting how the environment shaped and colored their essence. That essence became solid and is now staring back at you “solid as a rock”.
Think that your life is out of control? Are you feeling the effects of stress? Use the solidity of the rock to support your journey. Life’s lessons are required for your growth. They are essential. Your lessons shape you and give you the wisdom you need to find your strength, to find your beauty, to find your power and purpose in life—to make you solid. The lessons become the wisdom contained within you. They become your resource and your power. It is what lets you be a “rock of ages” to others so that they can say “you are my rock” when they are in need of someone to lean on.
Research shows that the ancients believed rocks and gems contained various energetic effects. Crowns of royalty and warrior shields were embedded with carefully selected stones for their beneficial properties. Each stone or gem has a specific gift.
A well-polished piece of coal becomes the coveted diamond. Don’t be afraid of the turbulence causing friction in your life. Welcome it as a harbinger of the diamond you were meant to be.
