With the energetic shifts and changes arriving along side of 2012, there seems to be an increased need for rest and recuperation. As these times require additional inward focus, this additional focus requires that we stay calm and relaxed. This layout of stones caters to this need, and recharges you for whatever may lie ahead.
This formation consists of only four different stone types and a 3 1/2 Cubit Slim Spurling ring.
The stones are all placed on the points of two superimposed merkabahs, each composed of like stones. Lets begin with the calming triad. The outer most of the three is larimar. It brings peace and tranquility which allows for a deep meditative state. Now is the time to use earth goddess stones like larimar, as they can bring guidance in times of stress and change.
The second and center stone in the triad is howlite. In preparing the mind for wisdom and insight, Howlite is also a very useful stone for meditation. It is extremely calming and soothing for the emotions, thus it offers us an opportunity to take a step back from the chaos. From that point on, it is much easier to center and function at our highest capacities.
The third and innermost stone of this merkabah is blue calcite. The calcite family has quite a selection of colors, each with unique properties. These color based properties are in addition to the structural based properties of calcite. These “generic” qualities cleanse the physical and subtle bodies and help to restore lost hope and motivation. Calcite also removes stress and replaces it with serenity. Blue calcite gently soothes nerves and anxieties. It facilitates relaxation and recuperation while absorbing, transmuting, and returning energy to the user.
At each point of the second complete merkabah is a piece of yellow calcite. Balancing and clearing discordant energies with the power of the sun, yellow calcite brings joy and cheerfulness into the field. It is uplifting, and induces a deep relaxing meditation. Stepping into this energy is like stepping into the light of the Sun.
I recommend making this grid large enough to stand or sit in. It would, of course, still be beneficial in a smaller size on your desk or under your chair. In these situations I would not use a Ring to circle to grid. If you are creating a larger scale grid, when not in use, remember to remove the Slim Spurling ring in order to allow the energies to flow as they wish. When in use, this ring will clear and charge everything cylindrically contained within it.
