In two weeks-time we will be seeing the “Great American Eclipse” with one of THE best seats in the house! De Soto Missouri lies in the path of totality at which we should be experiencing it for an awesome 2 minutes 40 seconds. I have to say I am pretty excited about it. Not sure completely why but I am!
Probably by now you’ve seen plenty of information on this eclipse so I won’t bore you with the same jargon. Instead let’s look at some potential effects, spiritually speaking. This eclipse, like all of the others, are part of a larger cycle that extends past one’s typical lifespan. Yes each one has it’s own energy signature but they all collaborate together as a form of energetic change &/or acceleration. According to Susan at astrologyzone.com eclipses are dramatic “wild cards”. They are some of the most dramatic tools that the universe uses to get us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change. They uproot us & get us moving. They shake us out of our feelings of compliancy so that we can move from one level of maturity to another higher plane.
She goes on to state that a solar eclipse is really a new moon on steroids with a TOTAL solar eclipse having the most intense impact of all forms of eclipses. This is a time of new beginnings & creating opportunities. You can utilize this time to help yourself become the person “you” truly want to be.
Symbolically the Sun represents the masculine energy of our world while the Moon represents the feminine “Goddess” energy. “The Moon is the night to God’s day, the Water to the God’s fire, the yin to the God’s yang” (Wicca Moon Magic). With these two nurturing forces coming together forming a union in alignment with the Earth, the energy could very well be great. If you come to feel disoriented or unbalanced please take your shoes off, place your bare feet in the grass (not concrete) & ground your energy in the Earth. If you are skeptical that this works, I challenge you to the next time you’re very upset about something to go outside and ground yourself. You will be surprised!
For viewing this special event I have decided that all of my crystals will be tagging along! It will probably take me a better part of my morning to do but I will be placing them ALL outside to be infused with this special energy. We are located directly in the totality zone so how could I not?! I’ll be posting pics of the event on my facebook page.
May Love & Light be with you all!
Pictured above are several Nelite stones from my own collection. There is something very mystifying about these crystals. They draw you in almost as if they want you to learn about them (anyone who has one of these stones know exactly what I’m talking about).
I’ve worked several times with Nelite and only the last time was I able to get a feeling for it. The stone that I worked with made me feel very grounded. Granted, I was in my bed at the time but I could still feel it. I also got the feeling that if I went outside with it barefoot in the earth that it would really be beneficial. Another key element I picked up on was I was very relaxed. This is a monumental feat as I am a very rigid person (as in I cypher too much energy into my body & it takes a lot to get me to relax my muscles). This stone made me feel it was beneficial to the nervous system and would also probably benefit disorders related to the digestive system. This particular Nelite stone seemed more connected to my chakras from the solar plexus down.
I will be experimenting with this stone outside & add to this post as soon as I receive more information.

Infinite stone is a type of green serpentine: a mixture of serpentine and chrysotile. Found in South Africa, this stone is considered to be one of the most powerful in its group. Green serpentine, from which it is derived, gets its name from its green color and slightly snake-like appearance. Chrysotile, the other “parent” of infinite, is more of a beige color. You can imagine how the combination of these two stones results in the light, calming green color of infinite stone.
Regarded as more powerful than other serpentine stones, Infinite stone has become what is considered a healer’s stone. No one doubts the importance and influence your auric field has and infinite stone is thought to help change this field. Along with changing this field, the stone is thought to help increase the power of Reiki and other energetic healing methods. Kundalini energy is thought, also, to be activated by this powerful stone. On top of all of these healing properties, this stone may provide a nurturing energy from the base chakra to the heart. This stone is also known to increase the connection to the angelic realms. Infinite is thought to be a great worry stone. This particular stone may help with decreasing negative thoughts and actions and relieving its user of stress and pain. Infinite may aid those who struggle to have restful sleep when it is placed under their pillows before bed. When you combine the energetic healing methods, restructuring of the auric field, removal of emotional issues, help with sleep, and assistance in bolstering your connection to the angelic realms, it is clear that the powers of infinite can benefit almost anyone in some area of life.
Emotional and mental stress are not the only things that may be alleviated by using Infinite—physical issues may also be aided by this stone. Fatigue, joint pain, connective tissue damage, and ordinary daily body pains may be soothed in the presence of this stone. Aside from its observed healing powers, it isn’t hard to see how the previously mentioned effects of the stone would help with physical healing of the body. Restful sleep, stress reduction, and a better outlook due to the easing of emotional trauma will also clearly help to keep physical issues at bay. This amazing stone works in a myriad of ways to promote whole body health. These aren’t even all of the attributes that this derivative of serpentine possesses. The stone may help to aid in cellular regeneration. Most of the physical damage to your body comes in the form of cells being injured or destroyed, and this stone may actually serve as an ally to your body’s natural ability to regenerate these damaged cells. In so many ways, infinite is regarded and sought after as a nearly perfect healing stone among crystal healers.
