Hi! i just have a question that I'm hoping you will take the time to answer. I have come across 2 gems that affect me very strangely. Moss agate and sodilte. Both create a deep metalic taste in the back of my mouth, my throat feels like it is closing up, the base of my head/neck throbs as well as the top of my forehead and i feel very foggy and disorented and my heart pounds. Until recently only sodilite had done this. Then I was searching for Moss Agate and had the same reaction only stronger. If my husband had not been standing next to me I would have fallen on the floor. The reaction is immediate and stong. I literally have to grab a grounding stone and concentrate to overcome the effects. I have read everything that I can on these two stones and I can't see any reason for this to happen. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your time! I really appreciate any help you might have!
Greetings and thank you for your question. Please forgive my long delay in responding. I was unable to work for two weeks and I am just now catching up to some of my older emails.
What you have described sounds like you may have blockages in your Heart and Throat Chakras, which are reacting to the energies of those two stones that happen to correspond to those two chakras. You might consider meditating on what in your life might have caused these blockages to occur. With the Heart Chakra, for example, it could be that you were deeply, emotionally wounded as a child and that set up the original block, to be fortified by any other emotional traumas you suffered throughout your life. Regarding the Throat Chakra, think back to see if there was ever a time when you felt stifled and unable to express yourself. These are just suggestions, but I think you can get the general idea of what to look for. If you can uncover these old, repressed memories that contributed to blocking up your chakras, you might then be able to address and release them, thereby clearing up those chakras.
It might help you to read our article series on the chakras, which can be found in our newsletter directory, here:
Another theory would be that you are going through some sort of a detox. When our bodies clean out, any latent ailments may come out or be exacerbated. At any rate, it would certainly help you to drink alot of water during this time, especially if you do try to clear out those blockages. Meditation and baths will help you as well. Try using some sea salts and lavender in your bath. Some people even use various detoxing teas in their baths. All kinds of detox will help to clear all of the energy systems of the body. When you do discover any root causes behind these blockages, it will be helpful for you to do various cleansing and burying rituals to aid the process of letting go of these past wounds.
Holding a grounding stone is a great idea, and I imagine it helps. You can also try stepping out barefoot onto the Earth to help ground out any congested energies. That has certainly helped me many times when I felt I needed extra help with intense energies. When things are particularly tough, you can alternate standing on the Earth, with a foot bath of sea salts, lavender, and a detox tea.
I would be remiss if i didn't tell you here that the symptoms you described are very similar to symptoms I have experienced while raising my kundalini. I cannot say absolutely that this is what you are going through, but when kundalini is activated, it usually affects any blocked chakras. For me so far, the worst one was my Heart Chakra. It had a terrible block and whenever the energy would rise, I would feel like I was going to choke or vomit. Sometimes it felt like I might be having a heart attack, but luckily, I was fine. I have learned that the process of kundalini activation takes some time and can be unpredictable. I would never recommend to anyone that is unprepared, activating the kundalini because it can be quite traumatic. However, I have been told that those of us who activate our kundalini in this lifetime, contracted well in advance to do this, so the choice has already been made before birth. I don't mean to scare you about this, as it may not be what you are experiencing. I just thought I'd mention it, just in case.
I hope this info helps you. What you are experiencing could be any one of the things above, all of them, or even something different. I wish I could guarantee a result for you, but I really cannot. If you try the suggestions above and you still have the same symptoms, if they change, or if they worsen, feel free to write in again. However, if you ever feel like you are in serious physical danger, please call the doctor. Also know that if you are experiencing kundalini, it would be the very rare conventional doctor who would understand it.
I wish you the best on your journey, and hope you are feeling better soon. If you do some research on kundalini activation, and believe it is what you are experiencing, you can write me back with any other questions you might have, since I am currently in the process of it. Please be sure that any stones you work with are cleansed and programmed for the highest good. For more information on those subjects, please see our newsletter archive link above.
