Alchemy Tips: Basalt Energetic Grounding

Natural stones have amazing healing qualities, such as the descriptions from the fantastic resource on stone energetic qualities, “Love is in the Earth,” by Melody. In my shaman jewelry making, I have found her book to be invaluable in assisting in the combinations of energies and intentions of our Mother Earth geology ‘friends.’

Many stones and crystals also assist in ‘grounding’ our human physical energy and spirit. Energetic grounding is an ancient holistic concept of bringing your spiritual self (energy self) back into your physical body and tapping deep down into Gaia’s center for additional LIGHT strength.

There are many books on the subject of grounding. Two of my favorites: “Gemstones for Foot Grounding,” by Starr Fuentes, and the Pleiadian method through Amorah Quan Yin’s book, “The Pleiadian Workbook: Awakening Your Divine Ka.”

BASALT ELEMENT

Basalt is an excellent stone for assistance in grounding our energies. While the physical stone of Basalt is always great to use, there is a powerful energetic use of Basalt that is described in this article. First, let’s review the benefits of being grounded!

BENEFITS OF GROUNDING

Here are just a few of the dynamic benefits of being energetically grounded:

  • Being truly ‘present’ to the moment; to your 3D reality (escapism, fantasy daydreaming, and denial are results of not being grounded)
  • Feeling an inner strength for all circumstances; emotional peace
  • A sense of solidness; one cannot be knocked over like a big balloon clown in the wind; like a solid core of LIGHT running down the spine
  • Calm observance of people and situations around you, allowing for conscious decision making (not impulsive, emotional reactions)
  • Ability to stay focused and moving toward your stated intentions
  • Recognition of inner emotional blockages through deeper awareness of self
  • Greater overall enjoyment of each precious moment on this planet
  • Ability to be ‘present’ again after a traumatic crisis

BASALT ENERGETIC GROUNDING TECHNIQUE

This powerful and effective grounding technique is provided through a channeled session in which Master Djwhal Khul, Ascended Master in the Higher Realms, provided this information. I have used this technique on myself and with my clients. It is strong, immediate and lasting.

The words of Master Djwhal Khul:

Basalt will ground nervous energies. Placed along the spine or laying down on large stones on one’s back is best.

Next best choice is holding the stones in the hands. The person will feel calmer – more able to see the whole situation and make appropriate decisions. Basalt is good for curing/stopping indecisiveness.

Basalt is an actual energy that can be energetically channeled down the spine of a person to assist with grounding – achieving calm, solid decisiveness.

Practitioner should hold hands out on either side of the head (oneself or another person) – 8″ away from the body. Hands with palms facing the ears, fingers closed. Practitioner should envision and draw in/call on Basalt energy in a grey-blue color into the top of the head and see it go down the spine. Practitioner’s hands stay in place on either side of the head, unless otherwise intuitively guided to change position.

This is like a “Column of Basalt.” This will immediately ground the person. It will pull their spirit back into their body.

ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

In practicing this technique, I have discovered that after about three practice sessions, this energy will be so anchored in the practitioner’s energy field that when it is called upon, it is there immediately. Barely getting my hands in place, I have felt the result on myself or with my client. Calm is instantly restored as well as a feeling of inner strength.

This is an wonderful and quick technique to teach to children. Start with the actual basalt rock in their hands so they can connect with the quality of the stone first. Showing a child the path to quick self-grounding is an emotional life raft for them.

Two Important Reasons

  • A person’s ability to respond in a balanced and conscious way in the world depends on their level of grounded-ness.
  • A person’s ability to ignite the healing process inside the body also depends on being fully present and grounded.

I hope this grounding technique is of great assistance to you in your quest to be ‘fully present Now,’ as well as adding a tool to your healing kit for your clients, family and friends.

I’d love to hear from you if you try this and I am happy to answer any questions on the process!

Blessings, Robin

Shaman or Professor – What type of Teacher are You?

As holistic healers and teachers, we have all spent time learning at the feet of our gurus – those Master Teachers who have walked the life path and generously provided their wisdom words for our betterment.

Like me, you may have had some teachers that you resonated with immensely, and then others where it seemed to fall flat. But once we discover our passion – the subject we love, learn and desire to teach – we might think back on past teachers and wonder, “How can I truly reach my students with LIGHT and insights for quantum change?”

Teaching from your Soul Center

An amazing life-path astrologer, Brook Jasmyn, explained the transforming time for Planet Earth that we are all experiencing now. In great service, as Healers & Teachers, we chose THIS TIME to reincarnate and assist humanity in higher consciousness growth.

In light of that, we would be ushering in a different type of teaching than what has been anchored here for the last 2,000 years; bringing the Shaman to take the place of the Professor.

Piscean Age transits to Aquarian Age

Humanity is leaving the Piscean Age and transitioning into the Aquarian Age. This brings in a different type of teacher. Let’s explore what the ‘Ages’ mean:

Zodiac Horoscope Signs, zodiachoroscopesigns.com
Zodiac Signs, zodiachoroscopesigns.com

According to astrology wisdom dating back to Hipparchus in 127 BC, the planet transitions backwards through the astrological signs (based on the vernal equinox transits) every 2,160 years. This means that the planet and humanity experience the qualities of that astrological sign for that period. If each sign is experienced, we have a full transition on the planet of about 25,920 years.

NOTE: this corresponds to the Mayan long count calendar transition where they calculated the end of a cycle of the Earth’s precession (wobble on its axis) – at 26,000 years. This was confirmed through the Milankovitch Theory in the 1920’s.

Many astrologers shorten this period to a straight 2,000 years, for ease in counting, and explain that we are in ‘cross-over’ of both signs at the front and back of each transition. So, for ease in counting, it is said that from approximately 1 AD to the year 2000, we were in the PISCEAN Age. Now, from the year 2,000 to the year 4,000, we will be in the AQUARIAN Age. Each age carries a ‘thought consciousness’ related to that astrological sign that pervades humanity’s growth and actions.

Becoming an Aquarian Teacher

Let’s review a chart that shows us the differences between a Piscean Teacher (our rigid Professor) and an Aquarian Teacher (our soul-centered Shaman):

 How the Teacher relates to the Student

PISCEAN TEACHER                                                AQUARIAN TEACHER                         

Maintain the Status Quo Change the Status Quo
Ultimate Authority in the Universe  Does not want to be Authority Figure
Teacher believes once they have done it one time, they have mastered it, and then they know it all  Teacher believes that the more they learn, the less they know, and the more they want to learn from the subject
Establishes Dominant/Subservient relationship with Student Establishes an equal relationship with Student
One-way street of Dialogue that says, “Learn from me” Two-way street of Dialogue that says, “I might learn from the Student today”
Learn the Hard Way Let’s have Fun!
“Do what I say, not what I do” “I must walk my talk”
Sets Impossible standards for the Student In touch with Reality and sets Realistic Goals with baby steps for the Student
Teacher must convince the Student that as a Teacher, he/she has arrived at perfectionism Teacher stays open and vulnerable to show their imperfections
“Perfectionism Destination” – emulate me “Processing never ends” – continue to grow
Not natural and easy in delivery of message Natural and easy in delivery of message

Many of us have grown up under PISCEAN Age teachers. So while our hearts are moved to teach like an AQUARIAN teacher, we may find our habits influenced by the former.

Open Your Heart and Your Mind

Brook was clear that as an AQUARIAN teacher, you are holding the student’s hand for a temporary time – the Shaman walking beside the student – while you are modeling a new way of Being for the student. As the teacher, you are constantly learning as well. By being honest and authentic about your own journey, you transmit more honor and respect to the student about their own path choices.

I sincerely hope the chart assists you in reviewing where you excel and where you can open and deepen your teaching work. And I thank you, each of you who are choosing to be grounded, strong, and work in the Divine Light – thank you for choosing THIS TIME to teach and bring about compassion, understanding, and healing.

Many blessings to Brook Jasmyn, who has transitioned from this planet, for passing on this important message to Light Healers and Teachers.

Blessings, Robin
