One Way to Work with Crazy Lace Agate:
To facilitate an active form of meditation, make yourself comfortable in your sacred space and while holding your Crazy Lace Agate stone, begin to trace its patterns with your eyes. Allow yourself to continue following the patterns as they swirl around the surface of the stone until you become immersed in the experience. When you feel ready, slowly soften your gaze, letting your eyes go in and out of focus, and bring your attention back to the present moment. Wiggle your fingers and your toes, becoming aware of your body, and take a few deep breaths to center yourself.
More About Agate:
Agate comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns, many named for plants and animals. These names not only describe the stone’s appearance, they add meaning to the stone’s uses as well. Ancient Greeks called tawny-colored ones “lion skin agates.” These stones had great strength and could counteract a wide range of poisons, especially scorpion stings. In Hebrew tradition, one could gain courage by plucking a hair from a lion’s mane. However if that seemed a little too ambitious to start out with, you could substitute a lion skin agate instead!
On the other hand, ancient writers cautioned against keeping agates with the spotty pattern of hyena fur, claiming those would cause domestic trouble. The green of a tree agate would attract positive attention from the agricultural goddess Ceres. Farmers not only wore this stone as an amulet, they’d also tie a piece to the horn of their ox while plowing. Across many cultures and times, we’ve come to see and make use of many connections between plant, animal and mineral kingdoms, as well as connections with eternal realms.
