In my ongoing journey to put the Elements into use in my Vitki work I came across an exercise to get better in touch with earth. Here’s how it went.
First you choose a stone to work with. Stones are of the earth. They can’t help but be connected to this Element. So I choose my huge 8 inch long clear quartz crystal. It is huge and weighs about 3 pounds. It is definitely of the earth. I wanted something that was still in its raw form. Which this crystal is.
Then I sat in front of the stone and calmed and quieted my mind. I entered into a trance state. Enough to be aware but still in an altered state of consciousness. Then I took the crystal into my hands.
I was getting a buzzing feeling from the stone. I let myself experience this phenomenon. I felt the buzzing increase in intensity.
Then I aligned my consciousness with that if the crystal. I let my entire consciousness become one with the stone. I got myself to the place where I was mentally of the same energy level as the crystal. It was of a definitely slower level than I am accustomed to. Once fully immersed in this lower level of being a remarkable thing occurred.
Suddenly my consciousness was inside the stone. I was seeing and sensing the world through the viewpoint of the crystal. The things I saw around me where different colored light masses. The plants in my ritual room where green balls of energy. The other stones and crystals were white balls of energy. Everything was reduced to or perhaps elevated to balls of colored light.
And I saw or sensed the balls of energy influencing each other in subtle ways. There were places where the colors merged. Everything touched each other in this raw energy state. Even books. Everything was something more than what they appeared to be through my eyes. Through the eyes of the crystal they were all raw energy.
Once I slowly came back to ordinary consciousness I pondered what I’d experienced. It was a view of the world in its rawest form. The form of pure energy. And everything influenced everything else. We are all truly energy influencing each other. So much to think about…
