Chapter 20

We were sitting in the launch area then suddenly there was a knock and the witch Lila came inside.

Laila: well I hope you all have well rested and had breakfast.

Aria: yes, we have

Laila: Well lets discuss the business. The flower you have can I see it?

Aria: Let me bring it from the room.

Aria bought and gave the flower to Laila. She took the flower and chanted something and it turned into 5 different sections, then into complete five different Rings each rings has different types of stone.

The rings reached 5 of them

Laila: Take them.

{Aria: Opal, Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz, Moonstone}

{Maha & Muju: Garnet, Rose Quartz}

{Mafu: Peridot, Aventurine}

{SAM: Iolite, Lapis Lazuli, Sapphire}

Laila: The one Aria got First it was moonstone that is white Moonstone helps to open up the heart, which allows us to be more receptive and in touch with our inner feelings. Like waves crashing on the beach in a study push and pull of the tides, get back into your own natural rhythm and discover hidden treasures deep within the self. Moonstone is a creativity charm, and it rocks at bringing out your muse because it reminds you of the miracle of life and our vast universe of infinite possibilities. “May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon gently restore you by night...and may you walk gently through the world, knowing its beauty all the days of your life.” Next stone is Smoky Quartz When it comes to reaching a higher state of consciousness, the Smoky Quartz crystal is your stepping stone to vibrating at your full potential because it works to release negative emotions like jealousy, fear, and anger. With life’s constant cycle of highs and lows, happiness is often a moving target, which makes a daily energy cleanse a vital part of your everyday wellness routine. Next one is Tourmaline is believed to promote inspiration and happiness, reduce fear, and build self-confidence among its users. It’s also used to balance yin-yang energies, as it’s considered a physical bridge to the spiritual. Last one is Opal Opal is a stone of sympathy and compassion, pure thoughts and confidence. It is the most unpredictable stone, a symbol of ever-changing fortune. An opal stone was inserted into a crown of Roman emperor Constantine who claimed that this stone shines in darkness, and believed it protects imperial authority, and his life. In his numerous stories about Opal he mentioned one miracle property of this stone which will allow the wearer to become invisible. Naturally, opal became the talisman of thieves. Some people thought Opal is a stone of “vain hope” while others believed that Opal’s sparkles clarify mind, give pure thoughts and drive fears away. In the East Opal was considered the stone of faith and love, in Europe it was a symbol of hope and happiness. According to Delphian oracle, Opal is a symbol inconstancy, typical in beautiful women. Shakespeare also shared this opinion. Astrologists consider Opal a stone of the Moon.

Maha and Muju got similar rings Garnets are powerful gemstones that can help us protect ourselves and rise into our personal power. They also prevent nightmares and can provide helpful guidance when we feel as though we are meandering in darkness. The stone can increase power and energy levels, and help nervous folks feel calmer. They can also help to stabilize challenging situations and help travelers feel safer. The Garnet crystal meaning is rooted in ancient history and comes from the Latin word ‘granatum’, which means pomegranate, a reference to its intense red color that resembles the glistening, deep red seeds of the fruit. Next stone is Rose Quartz the color of a rose and the ultimate symbol of love, Rose Quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries. The ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome were the first to attach the symbol of love to the Rose Quartz meaning. According to myth, Cupid, the Roman god of desire, and Eros, the Greek god of love, gave humans the gift of love in the form of Rose Quartz. Another legend tells the story of Rose Quartz and its powers of love and reconciliation. When Adonis was attacked by Ares, who was in the shape of a boar, his lover Aphrodite came running to his aide. Along the way, she got caught on a briar bush and by the time she found her lover, a mix of their blood started to soak into the quartz stone, giving Rose Quartz its iconic rosy pink hue. The legend is a reminder of the Rose Quartz stone meaning and its powerful association with romantic love. In Native American cultures, the Rose Quartz meaning was used to soothe negative emotions like anger and disappointment by bringing love into newly harmonized emotions.

SAM got is Iolite Legend tells us that when Leif Eriksson and the other legendary Viking explorers ventured far out into the Atlantic Ocean, moving away from any coastline that could help them determine their position, they had a secret gem weapon: Iolite. It is told that the Viking mariners used very thin pieces of iolite as some of the world’s first polarizing filter. Looking through an iolite lens, they were able to determine the exact position of the sun, and to navigate safely to the new lands and back. It is the extreme pleochroism that made this stone so valuable to the Vikings as a ‘looking glass’. Iolite has many colors in each direction within the crystal; a cube of Iolite will appear violet blue (much like a Sapphire) from one side and clear as water from the other, and a honey yellow from the top. Iolite is said to be quite helpful when dealing with addictions of all kinds including alcoholism, assisting in the detoxification as well as maintaining sobriety. Conversely it is also said to grant the ability to consume alcohol without exhibiting the effects. Physically, Iolite is used to assist in healing sore throats, diminishing headaches, and prevention of insomnia. Told to improve brain function and the efficiency of the metabolism. Next he got Lapis Lazuli is a symbol of luck, success and prosperity. Lapis lazuli is a mineral of dark blue color with inclusions of golden Pyrite, giving impression of multiple stars shining in the dark blue sky. Lapis Lazuli is bright and sparkling under the sunlight, but will become dark and gloomy under candlelight or artificial lighting. In Egypt and Babylon Lapis Lazuli stones were highly valued. In Babylon magical incantations were engraved on plates made of Lapis Lazuli. Egyptian judges carried this stone on the neck with an inscription “True”. Lapis Lazuli figurines of scarab symbolized Pharaoh power. In ancient China balls made from Lapis Lazuli were symbols of power and they decorated the mandarin’s clothes. In ancient Rome the gemmas from Lapis Lazuli served as amulets and talismans. Astrologists relate Lapis Lazuli to Uranium. Sapphire was used as protection from the evil eye as well as to reflect harmful or evil spells back to the sender. Legend tells us that Magicians were known to utilize the gemstones to enhance and direct their magical powers, that Alchemists associated the Sapphire with the element of air, and Mystics in India gave it the affiliation with Saturn, believing it to be a portal to the heavenly realms. Sapphires may be used to open oneself up to receive heavenly messages as well as aiding one in clarifying the specific meaning of the messages received. When used during meditation Sapphire may assist one find hidden potential, and sharpen the vision of one’s life work, it will help one to concentrate and to clear a mental path so that the journey may begin. Sapphires can help one work to achieve material dreams and desires, as well as sustain wealth once it is acquired. It will also be of assistance in keeping a balanced perspective, allowing one to better organize the thought processes, ensuring continued success as one’s material situation evolves.
