A Deep Calm With Which To Face New Experiences

Posted by terrepruitt on August 3, 2013

I was to meet some friends for lunch on one of my friend’s birthday.  I was the first one to arrive.  There is a little store, Moonfyre Metaphysical, between the two restaurants we were deciding between.  While I was waiting I popped in to see what stones they have.  It is one of those stores that has stones, crystals, candles, incense, books, CD’s and stuff.  They have a wide range of books.  They also do readings and Reiki.  I was primarily looking at the stones. One caught my attention — Mookaite (aka Australian Jasper).

In the container in which the stone were held there was a little piece of paper describing the stones.  I asked the clerk if I could have one of the papers if I bought the stone and he said that I could have it no matter what.  They are printed for people to take.  So I was happy.

The paper says:


Mookaite is a unique combination of red and yellow jaspers from Australia.  It imparts both a desire for new experiences and a deep calm with which to face them.  Flexible mookaite encourages versatility.  It points out all possibilities and assists in choosing the right one.  Mookaite is a physically stabilizing stone that fortifies the immune system, heals wounds, and purifies blood.

Ha.  When I read that I figured I needed this stone and that is why I was attracted to it.  At this time I am not sure about the “desire” for new experiences, but I am certain I am having new experiences.  I am having to face situations with an extremely ill pet and so I focused on the “deep calm with which to face them”.  It has been my experience that with medical situations you have to be versatile because diagnoses change along with treatments as things progress.  I need to see all possibilities and need assistance in choosing the right one.  While my beliefs actually are in God, I do believe that He has created tools for us that can help us along the way.  So it is not outside of my scope to think that a stone might actually encourage some of these things.  Even if it is just in the form of reminding me to pray and trust.

As I was typing this up I thought if it really is a stabilizing stone that fortified the immune system, heals wounds, and purifies blood, I should make a collar that will hold it and have my cat wear it.  Oh, yeah, she would love that.

Information on a website regarding Mookaite made me laugh because it is so fitting.  It said this stone helps when working with animals.  Also it helps make you more aware of natural cycles and see life patterns.  Trippy, huh?  I walk into a store and pick up a stone that is thought to help with facing decisions and allows you to be aware of the circle of life.

I always wonder where the information comes from about what properties the stones and crystals have.  Maybe that is another blog post.

Anyway . . . I was pretty convinced I was suppose to find it when I read the little paper, but the information on the website has me really amazed and even more certain.

Where do you stand in the belief about stones providing assistance?
