K-2 ~ The Silk Road's Treasure!

By Rev Pamela Teague, CHt

What a mesmerizing fascination I have with this stone! There is just So much to tell here!

I can’t imagine anyone not being intrigued with a part of Earth as ancient, wise and mystical as this stone!  

So let me start with what it is.   Technically, it is an orbicular Azurite Jasper! You might be more familiar with an Orbicular Jasper called Ocean Jasper from Madagascar. Yep! It has those little round bubbles in it! K-2 is essentially Azurite bubbles in Granite. If you know anything about Azurite you know that it’s pretty easy going and really FUN and comforting to have around. Of course, Granite is FULL of Quartz and VERY strong and clear on point in its purpose. The Dark matrix in this stone grounds pretty much EVERYTHING! LOL Since it’s had more practice at grounding than almost anything else on the planet, it’s REALLY good at it!

K-2 is pretty much ALL of the above on Steroids and MUCH MORE! To really get a feel for what has created such a Powerful Steadfast stone there are several fascinating things to consider!   K2 comes from one of the tallest mountain ranges in the world. This stone has been around a Long time!  Earth was a VERY Young Mother when she birthed what we call K2 today! Young mothers, more often than not, grow up with their children.  When Mother and Child step into the world and society in a non-traditional or “early” manner, they often face many challenges.  Trust me, when K2 was born it was tumultuous!  So, by nature, the two are pretty much forced to face adversity together.  They find comfort and strength in each other and learn how to navigate challenges, becoming a team to be reckoned with! 

K-2 and Earth Mother hold a powerful emotional partnership that is unbreakable!  Hence, we can find a deep, and to us humans, an unfathomable, Wisdom and Strength that they hold! We’re talking Millions of Millenniums here!

But that is just the beginning of the story. The stone comes from the K2 or Godwin-Austin mountain in the Karakoram range. This specific mountain is more often called Chigori (King of Mountains) by the locals, while world class Mountaineers call it the Savage Mountain! The name K-2 came from a surveyor plotting the region in 1856, Thomas Montgomerie.  His team could not find a local name for it at the time because it was not a visually obvious point on the horizon from the local villages.  The name Godwin-Austin was actually dismissed by the Royal Geological society!  Henry Godwin Austin was an explorer of that region but did not actually discover or survey this particular mountain.  So, today the most common name for the mountain, unless you’re Chinese… (but I can’t read or pronounce their version), is K2. The K being for the Karakoram mountains and 2 being the second mountain that they actually surveyed on the expedition. Such an understatement for such a significant part of the World, yet Perhaps somewhat befitting because it is the 2nd tallest mountain in the world (Everest being the tallest). Being #2 certainly does not diminish the power of this mountain in any way.  K2 holds the reputation for being one of the most forbidding of all mountains to climb, claiming more mountaineers’ lives than Everest every year!  Extreme weather conditions can unpredictably change in an instant and although there has been a route identified up the mountain, there is still much speculation about its ideal location or safety. No one has climbed it in winter, ever!

Under literally Mountains of snow and ice is the foundation for the path of the Silk Road! Yes, it’s true, while Marco Polo did NOT climb this mountain he DID safely pick his way through what is still today, some of the most inhospitable land in the world! Adventure? YES! There is never a dull day or moment for that matter, on the Silk Road. And yet, it holds thousands of years of peaceful, compassionate wisdom, nurtured and respected principally by the Buddhist tradition.  But this world Love, Wisdom and Peace pouring out of this region has also been upheld and cultivated by Islam and a Group called the Essenes.  All of them inspired to live and thrive in a place that most people would not ever choose to call home.  A significant clan of Humanity have found solace, strength, and wisdom that is worthy of sharing on an epic global scale.  Marco Polo opened this treasure to the minds of western civilization… but the East has known the Magic power and pain of this place for thousands of years!

Beautiful, rare, exciting, dangerous, serene, calm and comforting, this stone bestows grand and ancient wisdom, allowing us to confidently step into whatever is presented to us each moment of the day! Each of our lives contain elements that are more like than unlike Marco Polo’s Journey.  There are delectable and delicious treasures presented to us that we didn’t even KNOW we wanted to experience!  Likewise, there are challenges and situations that arise that we were completely unaware of!  The possibilities that shape and change our Life’s Journey are endless.  This Stones’ energy not only heightens our awareness to the exhilarating potentiality, it also opens us to our understanding that what might be the most intimidating of circumstances is not insurmountable or unmanageable!  Everything is Possible when we Align ourselves with The Divine Light and Love that is part and parcel of ALL that Exists!  Like this Grand and Glorious of the World’s mountains, the answer, as large as it may be, is often unviewable, possibly completely undetectable! And yet looming Large, Solid, Steadfast and unshakable amongst the most difficult of changing storms and conditions!

The vibration of this stone brings a sense of Deep Peace and undeniable Divine support that breeds a courage often unseen or even understood by those around us.

This stone supports us on our Journey! So, of course it’s a Wonder-Full Traveling companion!  This stone can assist us in getting quiet when things are perhaps not unfolding as smoothly as one would hope. Lost baggage, missed transfers, unacknowledged reservations, can all be a bit unnerving, and yet if we get quiet for just a moment with this stone in hand, there is a good chance the answer will be presented, large and obvious, directly in front of us!

Athletes can find great strength in this stone.  You can wear it while training and or performing or just meditate with it before an event.  Endurance is pretty much an understatement with this powerhouse.  Remember this stone is OLD… REALLY OLD…Millions of Millenniums OLD! That’s not “tired” old that’s more stored power and energy than we can imagine OLD!  This mountain and stone have been building, perpetuating, and evolving in physical form for far longer than we as humans can comprehend.  Allowing ourselves to tap into that vibration, whether we understand it or not, will actually support the vibration of our own physical form.  But don’t count on sleeping with this stone.  It’s not FAST paced but it IS relentless, undeterred, consistent energy!

You say you’re not planning a trip or a marathon?  This stone can be a valuable asset in our daily lives. It can boost our confidence when we step into a meeting, energetically support us through difficult tasks or just show us the way when we are pretty sure we don’t have a solution.  It’s a GREAT “emergency” stone.  When someone is anxious, in crisis or hurt, physically or emotionally, it can literally be a life/energy support!  Shoving this into the hand of a crying child or someone who is anxious can shift and smooth the energy opening strength as well as a renewed perspective!

Once you have possession of this stone you may find inspiration to take on a new project or just simply discover new things to enjoy that you never knew existed!  It’s a FABULOUS companion for someone starting a new business venture, a new job or moving into a new experience of any kind!

Shungite

Shungite

 Protecting~Restoring~Rejuvenating-

The Body, Mind and Spirit on ALL Levels!!!

Shungite is a miraculously unique stone that holds all but two of the known Elements of the Periodic Table!  What that means metaphysically is that it holds a Grander, Larger comprehension of this physical world than we are capable of grasping in our short human experiences. Most of us really don’t need ALL that information, unless you’re a scientist and want to know EVERYTHING in this instant!

In our present world, Shungite has probably the broadest knowledge of physical form and how it works!  So when it comes into contact with an energy flow that is discordant to a natural pattern of expansion, it adjusts the vibration, shifting it into a harmonious flow.  This is why it is regarded as such a powerful and useful healing stone on ALL levels!

For Example, when an electronic gauge used to check hot or cold circuits for electricians is used on Shungite, it shows us that the stone actually holds its own steady charge.  Ok, that’s not unusual at first glance.  This is true of Quartz as well and is the reason it is effectively used in watches.  The dramatic quality of an electrical charge produced by Shungite is that its charge is NOT influenced by any other electrical charges around it! In fact, Shungite actually influences irregular vibrations such as EMF’s in its’ environment!  (*See the definition below and a site describing its effects!)  Shungite quickly and automatically shifts and changes erratic energy impulses into a balanced frequency!  This naturally makes the electrical waves in the environment more compatible with Human vibration! (Well really, all Life forms!)

Shun Collection B.JPG

Shungite’s ability to adjust discordant vibration is in part due to a naturally occurring molecule in Shungite called a Fullerene or BuckyBall!  These molecules are thought to directly influence the generation of Life itself! As a catalyst in Shungite and all its effects on surrounding Life forms, Fullerenes are a truly fascinating topic of their own that we could spend a lifetime discovering!  Let’s just make it short for now and say Shungite, specifically, has been documented to reduce the effects of radiation, diminish numerous diseases, lift depression and even shorten recovery time from medical procedures on multiple levels!  Some other observed effects include:

·        When Chakra energy centers were measured in a room with actively emitted WiFi waves. It was concluded that with Shungite present the WiFi waves did not impede or alter the Chakra flow or range in any way! 

·        It's been observed that cell phones have been known to hold a charge longer when a Shungite tab is placed on them.  This also appears to make them energetically friendly to the Human cellular structure!   

·        AND… Even though no specific documentation could be found on the people living in Chernobyl Russia and their use of Shungite, it’s a popular belief that Shungite is the reason people are not just living but thriving in a place known to hold some of the most toxic radiation on the planet! 

The Russians call Shungite the “Consoling Stone” and this name certainly makes good sense!  When we look at the root meaning of the word “metaphysical”, (Remembering of course, that EVERYTHING is a Vibration!) it actually means moving mental thoughts into physical form.  The truth is that our thoughts and emotions create our entire reality (or physical vibration)!  Being the Humans that we are, we have been known to become mindlessly overwhelmed or stuck in some non-beneficial thoughts and emotions.  Since there are many millions, perhaps billions of thoughts running around us, to us and through us, we have a tendency to stay focused on the more unusual or highly charged emotions and thoughts that we deem to be“significant”!  When we experience something that is in-congruent with our nature, DNA or our natural instinct to Love, it surprises us, often grabbing our attention.  At the most dramatic point of discord we call it Trauma.  We mistakenly hold on to it and sometimes even build and deepen it by repeating continuous non-beneficial thoughts and emotions around a trauma even though it may no longer exist!   We can even emotionally fall into a recurring loop of those thoughts and emotions instead of focusing on something that nurtures the feelings and experiences that are in natural Harmony with our innate Love and Joy. As we run these through our consciousness again and again, they affect our vibration.  This discordant vibration manifests in non-beneficial behavior and dis-ease throughout our physical life experience! Just as with erratic electrical impulses, Shungite can smooth or console our erratic, negative or non-beneficial thoughts and emotions!

Here are just some of the ways it’s been used:  

In Beslan Russia, there was a Terrorist attack on an elementary school.  There were numerous violent acts, atrocities and deaths affecting the Children, Teachers and Parents.  It was decided that a special room would be built that was lined and filled with Shungite. After the room was built, Psychiatrists noted that therapy sessions in the room showed an accelerated improvement in the overall progress of all those they assisted. This seemed to be particularly beneficial to the children who were deeply traumatized.  They began to draw pictures with bright colors, started smiling, and some of them began talking for the 1st time since the event!

Another Shungite room at the Military Academy of Medicine in St Petersburg has documented quicker recovery times from medical procedures as well as shortened duration's of a host of diseases. Some of them being considered long term - such as diabetes! 

 Shizu

Shizu

Apparently, animals find Shungite consoling as well.  Our friends have a cat called Shizu.  Shizu came down with a VERY NASTY Kidney infection that is often fatal to cats.  They were hand feeding him and giving him water with a dropper.  At this point they thought a small Merkabah carved out of Shungite might make the cat feel better, so they stuck it under his bed.  Several months passed and Shizu had a miraculous full recovery! This was confirmed by him ripping up and down the house and terrorizing his brother.  It came time for a little household spring cleaning, and since all was well with Shizu, they decided to air out the cat beds.  One of them carefully put the Merkaba on the nightstand beside their own bed in the process.  They wanted to make sure the Shungite didn’t get lost, because they often use several different pieces for themselves.  When our friends returned to the bedroom Shizu had stretched himself between their bed and nightstand attempting to pick up the Shungite with BOTH paws, because, well, cats don’t have thumbs!  At this point they decided to put it on the floor so he could play with it.  Soon Shizu had migrated back to his own bed and they decided to look for the Shungite. …Did I mention they didn’t want to lose it?  But they couldn’t find it anywhere - and they looked everywhere!  Finally, Shizu got up from his nap and as a last option, they thought to look under his bed…yep! There it was, right where it belonged!  Shizu had tucked that piece of Shungite back under his bed just where he liked it!

The Vibration of Shungite augments and ushers in the Naturally Harmonious Expanding Truth into both the Conscious and Subconscious mind. Since we create our reality through Consciousness, we can easily attune ourselves to that higher vibration, or Self-Truth, on ALL levels of experience!

Of Course, there are as many perspectives to our experience as there are people!  One woman told me that Shungite must not work because she gave it to a friend who had cancer and the friend died!  But what we don’t know was what her friend was experiencing.  Perhaps her friend found comfort and even Joy in simply moving her physical body back into a non-physical vibration!  After all, none of us live in physical form forever.  At some point, we all Transition and Expand in ways we often cannot detect or understand with our physical bodies and minds!

Outside of Stromatolite, Shungite is probably THE OLDEST physical life form currently residing on Earth Mother.  There are some theories that this Stone is not even of Earth!  It may very well have landed here many millenniums ago, since it is only found in one particular spot on the planet: Karelia Russia.  Having a form that consists of almost every element that we as humans are aware of, gives Shungite a repertoire of vibration to identify the natural harmony in its environment.  So, it not only resonates with that vibration but augments it so that we can recognize, augment and balance our own vibration in a way that benefits us.  In the plant world we call this an adaptogen.

There are many unique and Creative ways to incorporate the Shungite vibration into daily life!  It can be worn as jewelry.  We have pendants bracelets and even earrings made with Shungite.   Spheres, Pyramids and tiles are beneficial in work spaces or other strategic spots in the home.  (I have a pyramid on top of my WiFi box!)  Or… it can be made into an elixir. 

(Ok here are some important points about all Exlirs!)  Please remember, Shungite holds a Host of elements that make it Shungite.  I have never heard of anyone overdosing on it, but just the same you REALLY don’t need to absorb or ingest it.  It is the vibration that ripples through us that brings us into balance! If you are experiencing an especially erratic condition such as cancer, intense anxiety or depression, you COULD put a Teaspoon of the elixir in a quart of drinking water to sip on during the day.  You’ll know if it’s too strong or if you’ve had enough, if the water tastes metallic- like you are drinking metal.  You don’t want to do this regularly! If you try this, do it for just a couple of days at the MOST!  

My preferred method is to put it in a spray bottle with ½ purified water and ½ Shungite elixir-2oz of each. Then I use this combination like a toner after my shower and before I apply any creams, lotions or oils.   It’s refreshing and allows the body to absorb and utilize what it needs. You will also want to be aware of what kind of Shungite you use to make the elixir. We have finally been able to get our hands on the medium size raw, untreated Shungite that makes a Great elixir!

We also have the pure silver or Noble Shungite.  The Noble is quite rare and are powerful and Beautiful pieces.  (I have one around my neck in the video.) They are also really nice to put under your pillow at night to support regeneration while you sleep!  It can induce a deep and peaceful sleep that allows you to awaken feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!  It actually supports the natural vibration and rejuvenation of our cellular structure!

If you would like to continue to delve into the numerous and more detailed scientific attributes of Shungite there is a FABULOUS French woman by the name of Regina Martino. She is a geobiologist and bioenergy expert who specializes in stones and crystals. She has authored an entire book on the subject! You can purchase it on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Shungite-Protection-Detoxification-Regina-Martino/dp/1620552604

Finding Gratitude in Stones

One of great the Gifts of my current Life is the privilege of actually spending lots of time with the rocks we sell.  Sometimes it’s just the mundane practice of pulling them out of their shipping materials cleaning them up, pricing them and identifying their boxes.  Other times it’s the blissful practice of sitting in meditation with them.  And occasionally it’s more technical, researching what their composition is, where they were originally found and their history.

All of this is my kinda Fun…So much so that sometimes I’ll actually find other things to do because it doesn’t “feel” like work or that I got something done.  You may laugh at that… I often do myself… it’s almost like I feel guilty when I’m doing what I do, which is learn more about the stones to share with you!

The truth is that no matter what kind of stone it is… or how many we have around… one or one dozen the thing that stones do best is augment the energy that is in their environment.  Yes, it’s a bit more complicated than that because of their unique personalities; just like people they actually augment different types of energy.  One of the secrets here is that specifically it’s not just energy they pick up on.  Yes, scientifically they are a part of what makes up the Earth’s electromagnetic field.  But on a smaller personal scale… well now that I think about it, the larger one too… they really pick up on our emotional field.  Ok, it’s not so much that they pick up on it… but can actually build or boost different aspects of it. That’s why it feels to me like different personalities.  The point being, that they can actually find those little sparks within us and build the vibration to a level that makes us more aware of it.

The Perfect Rock

As we wind down the end of the year there are so many really fun stories I would like to share with you about all of you and the insight you have given to us this year by just hanging out in the booth with the rocks.

One that’s sticking in my mind at the moment is an experience we had at this last show with a wonderful customer and fellow healer.  Because he does such wonderful healing work, and truly understands the path I’m hoping he won’t mind that I share this story with you… He’ll recognize himself immediately!

I must also mention, (as if he doesn’t know…) he is not alone in this experience – myself included!  Since we are getting ready to begin a new quest to find and bring you the perfect rocks for 2012- A year that is sure to bring great shift and change for us all – I’m particularly sensitive to how and what I choose that will support you on your journey in this coming year.

So All that being said… Our friend shows up at the booth at just the right time.  There seems to be a lull in the traffic so he can walk through the collection of stones on the table and contemplate which ones will serve him and his client’s best.  One rather large one comes to his attention…but he decides it’s always good to look at the rest of the tables to make sure that is THE ONE.  After working his way through the rest of the booth, he notices that things are on the quiet side for the moment.  Convinced that he needs one of that particular variety, but not entirely sure about that specific stone, he very politely, almost apologetically asks if we have any more.  Since it is a bit quiet, Brian pulls the box out from underneath the table.  This particular variety of rock is generally heavy and rough on one side so they are each individually wrapped in heavy paper, so Brian tells him, he can unwrap them and just put the paper on the table.  Our friend says “no no” I’ll wrap them back up.  So he begins to look through.  As he gets each one uncovered he puts them in two separate piles.  After he gets through about ½ the box he starts to re-wrap the ones he’s sure he does not want.  Then he continues to open the rest, apologizing as he goes.  He finally has looked as them all and decides to open again a couple that he had originally wrapped back up.  He puts 3 or 4 beside the original one he picked up from the table.  Looking at them all side by side, he starts shaking his head, a bit embarrassed he laughs and says after all of that I think I really want the 1st one I picked up!  It just has something the rest of them don’t.
