Stones have always been seen by pagans as containing within them the energies of the Earth Mother. Today, stones are often used to mark off the ritual space, and stone spells for protection and strength are common. Often spells in which you make a sachet will have you include a stone in your charm bag. Wearing a stone on your body, as jewelry or in a small pouch in your pocket, is the best known method of using stones for Magick.

You should have a special place to keep your stones, to avoid people picking them up. This can be as fancy as a velvet lined box, or as simple as a basket lined with cotton fabric. Purify your stones as you would any tool, or by washing them in spring water and drying them with a linen cloth.

SOME SIMPLE STONE MAGICK

For Depression
Use a bloodstone to help overcome states of depression due to a lowering of your body's vital energies. Place the bloodstone into a cup of spring water on your altar. Dip your finger into the water, and wet the center spot on your forehead. As you do this, visualize your body's energy and spirit returning, see yourself full of energy. After your ritual, dry the stone carefully and carry it with you for a few days. Don't be surprised if you start having cravings for certain foods. It is the magick's way of telling you what your body needs, so follow the impulses. After a few days, put the stone away safely, until needed again.
