Substitute a Sterling Silver Heart Charm with the word "Miracles" engraved if you wish, or a clear quartz crystal Heart.
Keepsake Card Included!
Amethyst - is the First Step stone because it symbolizes Sobriety and Abstinence from any substance.
Peridot - A good first "Spiritual Stone" for people who have not yet had a spiritual awakening, or are having trouble relating to a "Higher Power" as it helps people who are having trouble relating to the reality of a world beyond the physical world, or that some outside influence is willing to support and aid.
Smokey Quartz - It helps to set aside willfulness (turning over our own self will) and headstrong behavior.
Turquoise - A truth stone, it symbolizes a time to be honest with yourself. Much will be gained when you become still, and see yourself as your truly are.
This stone is a reminder to share your vision and "WALK your TALK!" This step is not a "think it" step... its a "DO IT!" step. The truth is very motivating to those ready to hear it. By doing so, you make it okay for others to believe and follow.
Sodalite - Eliminates Shame, Fear and Guilt better than any other stone! Many times, shame, guilt and fear of revealing our past to another human being will hold someone back from being able to take this step.
Fluorite - Letting Go of Defects: builds purity of spirit and helps to clarify those aspects of our spiritual nature that it is time to release and let go, as they no longer serve our higher good.
Clear Quartz - The symbol of Universal Wisdom, and Healing. This stone amplifies heart felt prayers, wishes and positive visualizations. Keeps you in touch with your spiritual side, and reminds you that you are a spiritual being, having a human experience. All spiritual pursuits can be stimulated and amplified using this stone's energy. It helps you to be receptive to higher guidance.
Moss Agate: I personally believe the hardest part of "becoming willing" in this step is letting go of the resentments, anger, and bitterness we feel toward the very people we are trying to make the amends to. Rationalization, justification, and self righteous anger can keep us stuck on this step a long time.
Forgiveness: Moss Agate, Amethyst, Rhodochrosite
Resentments and Jealousy: Green Agates
Bitterness - Blue Agates
Rose Quartz: I believe this step becomes possible when love replaces anger, fear, and guilt. The process of amends releases the burden of guilt and remorse we have carried for so long, and finally sets us FREE. This is the step that gives you WINGS.
Obsidian is an "ego buster" - reveling the truth about ourselves in a none too gentle manner. Sometimes, an illness can be treated with medication, and other times, surgery is required. Obsidian cuts through all our defenses and exposes us naked to ourselves. Wear obsidian to stay "right size".
Iolite - Higher Awareness - One of its primary functions is to stimulate us as spiritual beings, guiding us to a higher awareness, and awakening us to the inner knowledge that so patiently waits within each of us.
Labradorite - The FLASH will remind you of this stones purpose. Like "a flash of light in the darkness", Labradorite will help reveal your spiritual destiny to you. Labradoritebrings forth each person's strengths to share with the world, and each other. (to carry the message... to those who still suffer...)
Silver: Mirror of the Soul
Used to bring patience and perseverance to the wearer.
Helps to smooth over the rough spots in your personality that might at times be considered "abrasive".
Helps us to see ourselves as other see us, which leads us to positive changes.
