For readers looking to expand their knowledge of sacred crystals and stones beyond the foundations, The Alchemy of Stones presents a holistic, Earth-based framework for understanding why and how they work and initiating readers into a transformational, healing, alchemical worldview.
Engaging readers step by step, Simmons provides guidance on discovering and harnessing the three powers of intention, attention, and imagination, each a crucial component for meeting and working in partnership with the energies of crystals. Readers will understand the philosophical underpinnings of alchemy--surprisingly deeper than what one might expect--and translate ancient alchemical wisdom into modern, practical applications for healing, meditation, and self-knowledge.
Simmons shows how to co-create with stones to open minds and awaken hearts, and describes the mystical experiences that led him to develop his own relationship with crystals. Offering illuminations on the universe's conscious and benevolent nature, The Alchemy of Stones is an invitation to a journey of enlightenment, transformation, and spiritual metamorphosis aligned with the path of our living, conscious Earth.
Also included are chapters on making stone mandalas, elixirs, and Orgonite energy devices; powerful techniques for working with stones, including using the web of consciousness to bring change anywhere in the world; and an illustrated metaphysical stone dictionary, with 500 different stones and an index of their spiritual and healing qualities.
