Astronaut Neil Armstrong said ‘geologists have a saying – rocks remember’, a point which is reiterated in this intriguing look at folkloric, faeries, stones and crystals, their uses and history as more than just a passing fad in the modern day world of what is considered New Age Philosophies.
Faeries it is considered have been associated with rocks, crystals and so very much of the intrigue that is associated with these elements of folk lore, myth and legend as, it would seem that Faeires area bit like the magpies of this world, they love to collect interesting little bit and pieces, which include stones, crystals, little bits of gold and gems and love utilise their benefits. They relate to the ‘rock kin’ and over millenniums have created what is considered as a wonderful working relationship built on a love of stones and thus a love of the earth.
In slightly more modern times myth and mystique abounded with many stones achieving a reverence such as the Stone of Joseph. Specific crystals were discovered as having been used as remedies which appear in ancient Egyptian texts namely the Ebers Papyrus and the Vedas of Ancient India.
Each of the Faerie Stones and Faerie Quartes noted has a section which lists their essential descriptors followed by a detailed explanation of their history, use, element and healing properties associated with the world of Pixies, Faeries and folkloric. The final segments discuss The Human Energy System encompassing the Chakras and the auric fields and then conclude with Meditations utilizing the Stones and their healing properties.
Ceri Norman has divided this work into five components, which makes this not just a work about Faerie Stones, but also a reference book and workbook for anyone who is interested in another aspect of healing and the healing stones that are an essential component of not just new age therapy but paganism, and ancient cultures and practices.
