The Stone Vision Oracle is a curated collection of 27 stones that offer insight into our lives. Like oracle cards, each stone holds a message. These messages can be utilized one at a time, or as a guide through a situation, or the year.
Lithomancy is the reading of stones for purposes of divination. According to some sources, there is evidence of this practice going back to the Bronze Age.
There are many methods of reading the stones. One method is tied to numerology and consists of placing a large number of the same stone in a bad, then extracting a handful. The message is in the number of stones that you have in your hand. Another method is to pour stones out of a bag or other container and examine the pattern.
Runes are a collection of stones that have symbols carved into them. You may also see stones that have planetary symbols or words carved to them. These are pulled and placed in an order like cards would be. There are even specific stones that correspond the major arcana in Tarot.
You can see that the ways that people connect with the stones is only limited by our imaginations. Each crystal, gemstone, fossil, and mineral has unique attributes. The color, shape, composition, and geographic origin all hold messages if we take to time to look for them.
I had been connecting with stones for as long as I can remember. I had tried a number of lithomancy methods but none were right for me. Over time, I compiled a set of 27 stones that spoke to me in a way that gave cohesive and consistent guidance. This set became The Stone Vision Oracle.
Each stone has an overarching theme and a set of keywords. They also have specific messages to share and questions to consider. I might pull a stone in the morning to see what I need to know about my day, or one before an event to see how it may go. A three stone pull will give me insight into a situation or a relationship.
For planning purposes, I do a 12 month reading as I prepare for a new year. This consists of 13 stones, one for the theme of my year and one for each of the 12 months. I also do a monthly reading that consists of four stones; one for the theme of the month, one for what is beyond my vision that I can not yet see, one for what I has not yet entered my awareness but I need to know, and then my action stone, what I need to do.
In my work as a holistic wellness practitioner, my clients would often ask me if I would read cards for them. I was initially very resistant to offering this service, primarily because of my own self-limiting beliefs around being judged and wondering if the oracle would be as accurate for them. As I have been working to step more fully into who I truly am, last fall I made the decision to offer 12 month readings for the new year.
The feedback from the readings over the last year has been fantastic! “Thank you for the insights.” “Spot on!” and numerous stories of events that mirror what I shared in their Stone Vision Oracle reading. I hear how useful the readings are for planning and decision making. As a result, I now offer Stone Vision Oracle monthly and three stone readings as well.
Crystals, gemstones, fossils, and minerals truly do hold messages for us if we take the time to expand our consciousness and receive the information. Drop me a message and let me know how you communicate with the stones, or to give me the opportunity to share their messages with you!
