Crystals for Dreams and Dreaming
CRYSTAL STAR DREAMS
Enter the mist of murky meanings and seek the truth from countless gleanings.
Scattered, shattered, fragmented pieces move the mind and take all time.
Play with them and stay till when the misty haze does dissipate.
From icy eyes illusion dies.
Harmony uncloaked, epiphany evoked.
And when the pieces add to one, the tale ends as it had begun.
Emerge from the hole, grown and cold.
Converge with your other many selves in circle with the woodland elves.
When sky is blackened once more, enter through the shadow door
To start this maelstrom yet again. And travel back to the insane.
The sparkling children of the night chart your stories in their light.
Threads unravel twisted stories of the days.
As dark descends, weave them back in sacred shape of luminous rays.
Crystals for Dream Work
Any stone being can support and guide us in dreamtime. If you set your intention to find a stone to journey with during dreamtime, a crystal will manifest for you. In the meantime here are some of the stones that some in the metaphysical community recommend for dream work.
AJOITE: Ajoite produces a melding between the heart chakra and the throat chakra, helping us to speak what is in our heart. What follows is a peacefulness and a joyful acceptance of our surroundings, circumstances and environment. Ajoite is said to energize and to activate the peace chakra (an energy field between the throat chakra and the heart chakras). The energy of Ajoite brings peace within the self, regardless of where we are – in body or mind. It stimulates understanding and total acceptance. It enhances creativity and communication.
