Here is the stone that holds the energies of the West: the place of emotions, the adult, dreamtime, and the element of water. When I first set up the circle this stone was insistent, and quite clear that it belonged in the West in the circle. There was no arguing with it. It is a stone that has been with me for many years, and I have used it extensively for it’s incredible abilities. It is a smokey, veiled quartz and acts as a catalyst as it helps one to access sourl messages, lucid dreamtime, and channelled information.
The Personal Power stone dances in her power, instilled with visions and dreams arisen through her rooted feet and lifted up in exultation by natural attraction to the big ball of inspirations energy above. This stone speaks of being aligned in reality with your personal purpose, living your visions, and being empowered by that place of absolute integrity. Any stones landing in alignment with this one have something to do with your life’s purpose, and speak of how that purpose is becoming manifest and expressed. Should the Cloud stone land nearby, for example, it would indicate that your visualizations are aligned with your life’s purpose. If, on the other hand, the Stress stone were to land very near Personal Power, it would indicate that somehow, even though you seem to be aligned with purpose, you have made the endeavor “a job.” Perhaps you have “should” on yourself. Shake it off, center in the joy and thrill of it, and it will become alive with power for you once again.

The South is the Physical Direction. It has to do with innocence, children, animals, and physical reality. Although one might think this is mundane or straightforward, the rainbow in her skirt reminds us of the ability of physical reality to transform at anytime; that physical reality is the world of appearances, and that those appearances are transitive.

This stone has interior cracks in it which causes it to appear broken. It looks like it is missing a big chunk. In actuality, the surface of it is smooth and complete. It is not broken at all. Just like the stone, no matter how broken you appear to be to yourself or others, you are in truth whole perfect and complete just as you are.

Usually, I start setting up the Stones of Change Medicine map in the East (to my right – which may or may not actually be true East), so we will begin in the East.
