I have this beautiful and tiny goddess totem that nearly jumped out of the case as me the first time I saw her. I adored her voluptuous feminine shape and the color and sparkle just drew me in. She’s made of Goldstone, which I’ll tell you a little about because it just makes me giddy! Goldstone is considered a semi-precious gem even though it’s a man-made material. It is copper that has crystalized in molten glass. Check out this gorgeous word I just learned: aventurescence. It means “an optical reflectance effect seen in certain gems.” I just think it’s a little bit of two of my favorite words: adventure and effervescence. But I digress.
Goldstone is associated with vitality and energy, and with this little goddess form, I decided I must have her and I must tuck her in my bra whenever I want elevated energy, confidence, and divine feminine power.
So I carried her around with me, right over my heart, for months. After a while, I started to feel like she was a bit depleted. This is understandable as although her physical properties and the energy I gave her through my own intentions were strong, surely over time my own daily struggles and Earthly issues drained her of her vital energy.
I performed a ritual which you can do with anything like this: a stone, a piece of jewelry, anything that you feel needs an energetic “reboot.” And it’s the perfect time of year for this ritual as the soil is fertile for all the new birth of spring.
I went to my garden and, under a rose bush, I found a little spot to dig a hole. Maybe an inch deep. I placed my goddess in the Earth and covered her up. Be sure to mark where you bury your item so you don’t lose it! I simply put a stick in the ground to mark the spot.
I let her rest in the Earth, allowing any negative energy she picked up from me to be reabsorbed into the soil and fresh, clean, new energy to be infused. 24 hours should suffice, but I left her there for a few days.
I uncovered her and could immediately feel the difference. She was singing to me again! I gave her a good rinse under the garden hose and she’s back to hanging out with me as I go out on my daily adventures, shining my effervescent light to the world!
