In basic numerology, you add all the numbers together until you get a single digit, unless you have double numbers which makes it a master number and means the properties of the numerological energies are doubled, such as 11 or 22. 2016 adds up to a 9, which makes a lot of sense as to why last year may have seemed tough at times for most people. 9 is the number of completion.
All year we were working on letting go, saying good-bye, completing things we’ve started. Often during these times, if we are living in fear we may see these things occurring around us as hard, or a loss or lack of. New change can seem scary and confusing at times. But when we can see these things from a place of gratitude and that they are happening to us as part of the divine plan, new beginnings can be exciting, full of adventure, new doors opening for us and exploring of the unknown.
There are a lot of great stones that can be used to help us through these transitioning times. We have stones that help us prepare for the change and transition, we also have stones that prepare us and our bodies for all the new beginnings and doors opening for us, with an infinite amount of possibilities in every given moment. One of the reasons I enjoy working with stones so much is because they are relatively inexpensive and easy to use.
Most stones work through piezoelectric pyroelectric activation. Pyroelectric is through heat, it doesn’t take much heat to activate the molecules in the stone — our body temperature is more than enough. Piezoelectric is activation through pressure; when we hold the crystals and give them a little squeeze the molecules in the crystal are activated and the stone starts transmitting its properties. I usually suggest to people to keep the crystal on them, in their auric field for 30 days. This is a good amount of time for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies to make their adjustments.
If you want to use one of these stones to aid you during your transitioning time, meditating and using visualization with the stone can be very beneficial. When we hold a stone and visualize our intentions for 15 minutes, we are actually programming the stone. It’s kind of like telling the crystal what we need it to do. A good visualization to use for helping us during transition can be to hold one of the mentioned stones you resonate with.
Prepare yourself for meditation. Then, see or feel change occurring in your life and you flowing easily and smoothly with all of it, like being on a raft in calm waters. Some suggestions may be, seeing change occurring around you while you maintain a perfect calm peaceful meditative state of being, or, if you know what the transition is that is going to occur, you can see yourself maintaining a calm peaceful demeanor the whole time.
