Gemstone Spells

Stones are used for many purposes in magick; they can be used for meditation, divination, healing or crushed in some incense recipes or oil blends. The gemstones hold their own energy to be added to your energies.

Gemstones can be carried in spell pouches or just in your pocket. You can burn them in your spells if you like. Place them around the house or car to bring the energy with you. The possibilities are endless and can be shaped to your specific need. There are no rules governing the use of stones, so experiment with them to discover how YOU can master them.

Stones are symbols for forces far beyond words or cold, hard facts. They are a way to connect to the Earth as well as the Universe. Get to know the stones by using the listings below then experience them as much as you can.

Don’t worry about finding the right stone, because your stones will find you. If you have a goal in mind for your stone, the right shape and color will probably pick you. If you just happen to be picking up a few stones for later use, you can use the charts to see how to use that particular stone within your spell craft.

There are also plenty of ways to locate your stones. You can get them at metaphysical shops, order them from the internet, walking in the woods or on the beach or you can find them in booths in the flea market. Just make certain that you cleanse and purify your stones before you use them for anything.

Cleansing and Empowering Your Stone

When you find the stone that you are looking for, it must be cleansed to rid it of any other energies that may have attached to it. To cleanse your stone; mix sea salt and water, gently rub the water over all of your stone from middle outward on all sides (like anointing candles) while visualizing your own energy entering into the stone, then bury it in the ground. Repeat this process for the three nights of the Full Moon. (Remove it each morning at first light.)

Once you have cleansed your stones and empowered them with your own energy, you will need to consecrate them for use of the purpose you have for that stone. Once you have opened your circle you can consecrate your stones just like you do any alter tools. Make certain that you have checked the Moon Phase so that it compliments the stones purpose. Then perform the ritual of consecration following using candle colors and incense of purification.

Consecration Ritual

(Open the circle)

Before these assembled spirits I bring this stone to be dedicated to the service of the Lady and Lord.

(Pass each stone to be consecrated three times through smoke of the incense.)

By the power of air, be thou purified. Be thou dedicated to purity of thought and to harmlessness that all intentions for which thou art used may harm none and be for the good of all.

(Pass each stone to be consecrated three times through or over the flame of the fire candle.)

By the power of fire, be thou purified. Be thou dedicated to purity of desire and to harmlessness that all goals which thou dost help achieve may harm none and be for the good of all.

(Take a few drops of water and sprinkle or dab on each stone.)

By the power of water, be thou purified. Be thou dedicated to purity of emotion and to harmlessness that all that thou shall be used in a spirit of harmony, harming none and for the good of all.

(Touch stone/stones to the salt in north quarter)

By the power of earth, be thou purified. Be thou dedicated to steadfastness and purity of purpose, that my will be achieved without wavering, with harm to none and for the good of all.

(Finish any other business then close your circle)
