The following stones were used in the creation of this artwork for their energetic properties; quartz, jade, moonstone, amethyst, garnet, pearl and kyanite.


​QUARTZ 
​It is a receiver, amplifier, conductor and generator of energy. Used for meditation, transformation, stability, knowledge, protection, healing, and enlightenment. It increases the auric field.


JADE 
Brings peace, calm and stabilizing effect on the body. Courage, clarity and tranquility of the mind. Erases stomach and digestive disorders.

MOONSTONE
The energy of the moonstone is balancing, introspective, reflective, and lunar.  It is capable of helping one with the changing structures of ones life on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.  The energy relates to “new beginnings”, allowing one to realize that these “new beginnings” are, in actuality the fruition of endings as well.


AMETHYST Amethyst is a variety of quartz, considered a “stone of spirituality and contentment”.  It facilitates transmutation of lower energies into the higher frequencies of both the spiritual and ethereal levels.  It is representative of the principles of complete metamorphosis.  It balances the energies of the intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies and provides a clear connection between the earth plane and the other worlds.  It clears the aura and stabilizes and transmutes any dysfunctional energy located within ones body.  Amethyst also bestows stability, strength, invigoration, and peace; the peace being the perfect peace which was present prior to birth. It is also a “stone of meditation”, being excellent in conducting the energy of calm and peacefulness to help one to both enter and maintain the state.  It opens and activates the crown chakra.  It has a healing, calming mental effect, enhances the meditative state, and creates pure thoughts, spiritual insight, relaxation, and higher values.  Also transmutes negativity and enhances the dream state.  Alleviates mental stress. It is said to be one of the stones used in the breastplate of the high priest.  Amethyst can be used to protect against psychic attacks; the energy of the attack being transmitted to the universe after its transformation into positive, loving energy. It brings one the energies of serenity and composure while inciting fairness in decisions and enhancement in the ability to manage any and all responsibilities.  It enhances cooperation and co-efficiency between ones mental, physical, and emotional bodies, between the physical and spiritual worlds, and during activities in this world.  It assists in the assimilation of new ideas, re-aligns the energy bodies.  It can be used to encourage and enhance sobriety, for freedom from addictive personalities (oneself or another).  It vibrates to the number 3.


GARNETS It is a stone of health extracting negativity from the chakras and transmuting the energy to a beneficial state.  It enhances ones internal fire, bringing the creative powers to the state of implementation.  It allows one to recognize inherent responsibility with respect to personal freedom and patience, in sighting personal magnetism and cooperation in instances of change.  Garnet is a stone of commitment to purpose, to others and to oneself.


PEARL The pearl has been known as a “stone of sincerity”, bringing truth to situations and loyalty to a “cause”.  It has been used to inhibit boisterous behavior and to provide a reflection of the self such that one may see the manner in which one appears to others. It has been used in the treatment of digestive disorders, and to relieve conditions of biliousness and bloating, to treat the soft organs of the body, and to increase fertility and ease childbirth.  Vibrates to the number 7.


KYANITE It is one of two minerals in the mineral kingdom that never needs cleaning or clearing.  It will not accumulate or retain negative energy or vibrations.  The energy of kyanite is unlimited in application making it one of the very best attunement stones.  It brings tranquility and a calming effect to the whole being, with particular focus to the throat chakra and the third eye.  It stimulates communication and psychic awareness on all levels. It aligns all chakras automatically and immediately with no conscious direction.  If directed with the consciousness of the user, it can also open the chakras.  Conscious direction of the energy can also align the emotional, intellectual physical, spiritual, ethereal and astral bodies. 

Rule From Within


This mixed media piece incorporates elements of yoga, feng shui, Christianity and metaphysics through the encaustic medium, collage work, crystal arrays and photo new media. The eight images of the yogi in rabbit pose form the pattern for the concept of going within to meet your ruler. The outer appearance of a stain glass window or cathedral evokes the religious feeling, but with a closer look, one sees the yogis self portrait reflected back as the image of God depicts the yogi next to the cross. The crystal grid overlay in amethyst is the dual mercury array or the seekers array for enhanced communication, created to enhance the energy of the artwork. Transformational art designed to amplify the communication and pathway to the God within us all. This artwork measures 56"x 32"x 2" and weighs 17 lbs framed.
