Excerpt from Precious Stones – Their healing power and planetary influence.
“[The] mysterious process of creation is still going on. While we stand surveying a beautiful stretch of countryside, enjoying the shade of a forest, or getting our breath back at the top of a steep hill, minerals are constantly assembling under our feet, just as they are still being produced in the planetary masses. The correspondence between this activity on Earth and in the planets is another reason why we should try to live in harmony with them both.”
Inside Dust Jacket:
Usually seen as valuable only for their beauty, precious stones also have the power to heal and strengthen through their energy and mineral properties. Magda Palmer’s book is a comprehensive guide to the science of precious stones that will enable the reader to understand the various energies produced by different stones and how to draw upon and utilize that power in your daily life.
Magda Palmer, widely experienced as a consultant on the mythology and healing properties of stones at the “Nature Sculpture” shop in London, has written a lively and original work that deals not only with the popular use of crystals and gems in healing, but also with the role of stones in linking us more strongly to the energies of the solar system and the cosmos. Our bodies reverberate to the same energies as the farthest planet and by finding the stone appropriate to our birthsign we can focus and enhance the influences working upon us – or protect ourselves from these that may be harmful.
Turning to the use of crystals in healing and self-healing, the author argues that the energies inherent in gems and crystals and their ability to transmit these energies make them of great use in healing. She lists the particular healing properties of specific stones and discusses how to use them. She reveals the techniques involved; how to discover which ones are the right stones for you according to your birthsign and your physical and spiritual needs; and how to enlist them as healing agents for yourself and others.
Magda Palmer spent nine years researching this book. She lives in Australia.
