Day #100 (Sacred Space, Geomancy and Feng Shui)
Rocks and stones Rocks are considered to be living beings in most indigenous cultures.
They just grow very slowly so you can’t witness their movement with the human eye.
And they are part of Shamanic practises, healing techniques, ceremony, creating a sacred space, as sign posts for sacred areas or for communication with spirit. Rocks can be used for a variety of things.
Each rock will have its own characteristics, qualities and personality.
Some are used in ceremony or to create a sacred site like Stone Henge and some are considered sacred themselves, like Uluru.
I like to use rocks in the creation of my healing mandalas especially when a lot of grounding needs to be incorporated.
The rocks in the pic today are ones that my son chose for me on a walk around our local lake. Each rock is so individual. There are green ones and stripey ones, whites ones and flat one. So so special to be giving a gift of Spirit.
I have worked with Grandmother Rock Spirit for healing a site and its something that a lot of people seem to overlook… rocks.
Though rocks are the representation of Mother Earth and can hold the energy of creation.
They are ancient and full of wisdom and knowledge.
In Feng Shui they represent the Earth element which is stable, loyal and cohesive.
Rocks and boulders alone have been used by some Geomancers to ground a site and in the most cultures we use stone to mark and communicate with our dead in the form of tombstones.
Tombstones in traditional Gypsy culture are regarded as a form of communication with those that had passed.
And many traditional cultures regard caves as sacred sites where people have the ability to communication with spirit and the Great Mother.
So next time you pass a rock, you may start to feel it too.
If you sit long enough with your rock you may just get some wise and ancient knowledge sent to you.
