I remember my first show working with Moon Magick. Everyone was all about this stone. I was thinking "What's going on with this?" I took some time to feel this stone and did some research with Melody(Love Is In The Earth) and Ted Andrews(Animal Speak). Ah Ha! Now I see! At this timing, many people are becoming "Awake", and this stone holds much support toward that process.
Let me explain: This stone is an Agate, within the metaphysical quality of Agate is: "[P]rovides for the balancing of yin-yang energy and for balancing of the physical, emotional, and intellectual bodies with the etheric energies." Black Agate: "[T]ends to produce an energy which will allow for insight into ones deepest concerns and/or fears which are not in the conscious mind, yet are within the "thoughts" of the Inner Self, and to promote the addressing of same, in order that one may rid the self of limitations." Botswana Agate: "[S]timulates the crown chakra and energizes the auric body, encouraging eternal love and allowing for the recognition that eternal love is a constant in the ever changing universe." This stone encompasses all of the above variations of Agate. When I have spent time with this stone I receive a soft grounding energy.
As the name of the stone includes "Orca" I thought it would be fun to see what Ted Andrews had to say. Ted Andrews is the author of the book Animal Speak and my main book in regards to animal medicine. He has nothing specifically regarding Orcas. Orcas are also called the wolves of the sea, so I thought I would look what he has to say about wolves and see if that felt appropriate. Here's what feels right in regards to this stone. "Learning to trust your own insights and to secure your attachments accordingly is part of what wolf medicine teaches. The wolf can help you to hear the inner and guard you from inappropriate actions. It will guard you as it teaches you - sometimes strongly, sometimes gently - but always with love. When wolf shows up, it is time to breathe new life into your life rituals. Find a new path, take a new journey, take control of your life. You are the governor of your life. You create it and direct it. Do so with harmony and discipline, and then you will know the true spirit of freedom." Considering the water element within the stone's name, that would imply emotion. The name of the water element is Ocean, specifically. Salt Water is a purifier.
So let's sum up the energy of this stone. At this timing on this planet we are being asked to raise our vibration or consciousness to meet a higher view. This stone encompasses the energy to address our fears, and through the emotion of love to purify ourselves and move through our own limitations that have kept us in a lower consciousness. To balance our lives, our world, with discipline and harmony and find new and higher expressions of community. Working with this stone in mediation and spending time with it or keeping it on you will awaken your ability to address your own inner challenges that have limited your life and open a higher awareness of your true loving self. Keeping this stone in your environment will remind you that we have chosen to take this journey of enlightenment together and we will be successful! If you are drawn to this stone, take it as a calling card from your higher mind that you are ready to take a new and higher step.
