Getting Crone Stoned
Stones offer tools for self-reflection and self-discovery
-Mary Beth Sammons
Looking for healing and inspiration? Try getting stoned – with Crone Stones, that is. Each of these cute little porcelain stones comes with a different archetype depicting the different stages of a woman’s life and symbolizing the human drama of personal growth, sustenance and transformation. They are touted to have mysterious energy powers that we can channel for our ever-changing needs on our emotional and spiritual journeys. The idea is that the images on the stones are based on the concept of “wise old crones” and are a great way to intuit behavior and take an emotional reading of ourselves and others.
The images depicted on the porcelain stones reflect energy patterns of these centuries-old wise old crones who were revered for their wisdom. They come in a kit in a velvet bag with 33 stones for $39.95. Kits also include an instructional book that offers explanations of each stone and life season, as well as suggested readings to help you on your spiritual and inner journey. All you have to do is reach in, grab a stone and reflect. The promise is that the energy power and wisdom found in Crone Stones can help you reclaim the identity and status of the ancient crone to access your own wisdom and act on it.
So go for it. Get stoned, the Crone way.
