Great grandmother of all stones
The ultimate Ma
The technologies of Kundalini Yoga and Stone Medicine are vast and deeply aligned. When many consider using stones and crystals they often look to New Age books or the internet for their meanings and benefits. In reality, Stone Medicine is the foundation of acupuncture. Chinese Daoists worked with stones in an exploratory way-- grinding them up, ingesting them, laying them on the meridians of the body and meditating with them. Through many methods they created lineages of Stone Medicine much like the yogic traditions.
I am a student of the Jade Purity Lineage. My teacher Sarah Thomas learns at the feet of Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th Daoist Priest. The signature of this lineage is always using your powers for good. We learn that one’s medicine works when one knows their own Truth. This is an oral tradition, transmitted directly from master to student. Jeffrey Yuen learned through his family’s ancestral heritage and passed it on to his students. Much like Yogi Bhajan, he is a true rebel as he felt called to spread the wisdom of the stones far and wide for the greater good of humanity, despite the fact that his family demanded that he keep this wisdom concealed.
Stone Medicine goes to what the Daoists call the yuan layer of the body. This is the deepest layer of the body. Yuan is the essence level of the body. It is all about our bones, teeth, kidneys, glandular system, hormones, spine, nervous system, the marrow, our DNA. Kundalini Yoga and Stone Medicine are both about going deep to create true healing, efficiently and effectively. Often in Kundalini Yoga we refer to the practice in contemporary times as equivalent to upgrading your software on your electronics, so does Jeffrey Yuen in regards to Stone Medicine, “Taking an elixir is like downloading new software into you that is able to open realizations and experiences that were already deeply encoded in you.”
We all love the bright colorful crystals. However one beauty often gets overlooked for her fairly humble appearance. Hematite is the ultimate nourisher. She is known to be the great grandmother of all stones. This stone is all about providing the unconditional love and nourishment that so many of us missed out on in the womb. If any part of us was ever rejected by our mothers, Hematite will heal. She will heal every disorder and every addiction. Hematite is all about our connection to the navel and the root chakras.
This is the original root core resonance. The iron rich nature of Hematite nourishes the red blood cells, particularity the stomach and the spleen while calming the central nervous system. The greatest message Hematite instills is that you deserve to live. You are fundamentally supported by the Universe. By giving you unconditional love Hematite will assist you in magnetizing anything you want or need in life.
Kundalini Yoga and Stone Medicine are two lineages that easily go hand in hand. They truly support one another. At the root of each is the teaching that each soul must connect with their Truth, their Sat Nam. Through the journey of life we are healing all our wounds of separation and filling these ghosts with unconditional love and attracting to us everything we need.
“All the faculties and facilities of the Creation, which are in your best interest shall be at your feet. You need million things. Million things will reach you if you are stable, established, firm, patient. Remember, Creator watches over you and Creation is ready to serve you, if you just be you. So please take away the ghost of your life and stop chasing round. Consolidate. Concentrate. Be you. And may all the peace and peaceful environments, prosperity approach you forever. Sat Nam."
