Back several years ago when I read about the lessons of the Stone People for the first time, it was like a light bulb came on in my head. You know, one of those “Ahhhh” moments we get every once in a while during our life journey. At that time it became clear to me why I had always been drawn to rocks. Even as a little girl I found the rocks fascinating and special in a way that I could not explain.
I know that different people are drawn to different energies. Some find comfort when they visit the waters while others need the comfort they find from trees. And then there are those of us who feel the energy from the rocks or Stone People. I appreciate the waters and the trees and know that at times it is their energy that I need to seek out but when it is a feeling of being out of balance, I will be drawn to a stone.
You see Stone People are the record keepers on Mother Earth. It is their mission as Teachers to hold energy and then give the seeker knowledge regarding the history of our planet and the Children of Earth. The very body of Mother Earth is made of rock and it breaks and moves with the weather. It will break into smaller stones and eventually become soil. These rocks carry the records of what has happened on Earth and transport electromagnetic energy on the surface.
We find many healing uses from a variety of the members of the Stone Clan. Clear quartz is one example. Tribal traditions have used the quartz for focus and clarity for centuries. There is a magnification of knowledge and an ability to clearly see through the physical illusions when you use clear quartz crystals to assist you.

Nothing is ever put in our paths without a reason. When we are attracted to a certain rock and we pick it up it has a lesson for us. The lesson and even the stone will be different for each of us depending on what our need is at the time.
Every lesson of how to live in harmony can be learned by connecting to the Stone People. If we are willing to slow down our minds and feel the influence that brings balance and serenity, it will be a Stone Person that will be our tool. When we are seeking such knowledge and balance, the right stone will be on the path for us. When we find ourselves ragged from nervous habits like overeating, talking too much, compulsions, addictions, or erratic behaviors; all we need to his hold a Stone Person and breathe until we feel the nervousness fade away. In essence we are anchoring ourselves back to the Earth Mother.
If you were drawn to this message today, it might be a time that a “knowing” will be revealed to you. It could be a time that you need to focus on your intent or to dispel confusion, change a habit, or retrieve a record. Go look for Your stone, it is waiting for you. It might be a tiny pebble, a large boulder, or any size in between…you’ll know which one to connect with.
You can sometimes use calendars to help you to connect and meditate on the lessons you are learning.

An interesting post. Years ago, my cousin in the UK told me he likes to touch the walls of old cathedrals and can physically feel the energy. I tried it too and instantly felt a swirling energy in my hands! Since then I have felt my hands pulsating when I have touched some ancient standing stones in the UK, old Roman posts in the Mediterranean and church walls and pillars all over Europe. The Roman stone posts were like a dull feeling and the other things a bit more vibrant. I have noticed when I enter shops that sell gemstones or even second hand jewellery with gemstones, my hands will tingle like crazy. (Though the latter was like a dull energy too) I recently purchased a brand new bracelet made of lava stones from a gemshop and I felt really spacey like I was floating. In nature I have lain on big boulders a few times and felt the tingling on my body – even afterwards. I have no idea if all of this has a meaning or I am just lucky to tap into and feel the energy. (Sometimes I also feel the tingling energy from trees and from people who shake my hand – even hours afterwards. The best energy ever was from the giant redwoods.) I have lots of natural pebbles and gemstones at home which I love. If I am relaxed enough, I can feel the energy.
Recently a tarot card psychic told me that I should work with stones but that it’d be something new for me. I was wondering if you could perhaps give me some tips that could help me discover this path, i.e. perhaps your thoughts on what this all means or give me a book tip. Thanks heaps in advance:-) It is all a bit of a mystery but sounds like a gift. And I’d like to embrace it.
P.S. I sometimes let the reiki flow in nature and in the early days was a bit sceptic that it had worked, so on several occasions, I asked for a sign like to find a nice stone or a feather. Imagine my delight when I found some beautiful heart- shaped stones and even a small white stone in the shape of a feather with perfect feather markings in grey and blue hues!
I am enjoying your posts. I too am drawn toward water, and especially like the stones I find around the waterways. I actually find my balance in these type settings. I am looking at some of the stones I have picked up recently….and you know …it looks like there are other birds. For a while I have been curious about the stones I find with the V or L cut. It is so precise that it cannot be because of nature. Nor do I feel that it is a machine. After finding the birds, I am strangely relaxed and feel protected, validated even. I am so glad to have found your site. Thank you. I also have recently built a patio out of flat rock and slate that I have found through out the years.
Thank you Debra and I am glad that you found my blog, too. It has been so nice hearing about the gifts that you have been given by the Stone People. It is very possible that some were used by Native Americans as tools or special ceremony stones if they have marks on them that are not made from nature.
What an interesting post and I am fascinated by Debra’s finds! Generally I am pulled towards water, but that is not to say I dont feel an intense sadness when I see a tree taken down by the wind.
However, stone is currently on my mind. We are building a new paved area in our garden, in the sunniest spot by the back door. I have decided to go for a “minimalist look” and I keep visualising rounded stones, which I am probably going to use as a base on which to stand my very happy Buddha that my husband gave me on my birthday.
I also want a large stone, with water running down it as a center-piece – it looks like there’s some messages in there for me!
Yes Eagle is the first and the seems to be the most strong. Lack of a better word here. It is interesting that the beak and neckline are straight cut, the base of the breast is straight as if it were to sit on a small flat slab. The head and neck are rounded. It seems to be a fossel, rather than a stone. There is a clearly defined insert where the eye should be. Seems to me a jewel of some sort could have been placed there. The beak appears to be open. The second found to my surprise yesterday, was a casual walk through a picnic area of woods. I was walking with my 12 year old nephews. An it was coming to the top of a siltlike clay walking path. An it’s appearance was another bird, made of stone with a spot for the eye. but I need to look at it more, to see if it is another eagle. I think it is not. They are both of the same size. The breast of birds, same deliberate V cut for the beak and neckline. With a spot for the eye. Thank you for being there on this page to share this with. I am feeling the sacredness of it, and that feeling is hard to share with everyone, unless they have a sence of knowing. Thank you.
While walking in the woods by a waterfall, I found in the stones there an old fossil with the shape deliberately carved in spots under the chin and breast of an eagle. Within days, yesterday,I was walking in the woods looking for “special stones” with my nephews and found another carving, of what appears to be the breast and head of a bird. Both are about five inches. Can we talk about the meaning, and honor?
Oh my! You gave me goosebumps, Debra! These are special gifts from the Stone People, indeed! If it were me, I would find a quiet place and hold the stones in my hands. They might feel cold at first, but will eventually warm and you will probably start to feel some energy radiate into your arms. As your breathing becomes steady, reflect on the place you found the stones. Perhaps ask humbly if there is a message you are to receive. I don’t hear voices but thoughts come to me when I do this. If nothing comes the first time, try again later. Don’t try to force it.
I can’t help but be tuned in to the fact that both stones represent birds. I think that is significant in some way to you. Do you know…is Eagle one of your totems? Could be a birth totem or a power totem but could also just be a messenger totem for you right now. I might hold the stones and think about birds. See if anything comes to you.
