Overview

Stones of the New Consciousness begins with a new approach to meditation with stones, and to the possibility of conscious relationship with the spiritual beings who express themselves in our world as crystals and minerals. This beautifully designed book examines the most important stones that help accelerate and enhance human evolution. Each entry is illustrated with color photos of exceptional examples. The stones include Moldavite, the extraterrestrial amorphous crystal; Nuummite, the oldest gemstone on Earth; and Circle Stones, the highly energetic Flint found in crop circle formations. Other featured rarities include Nirvana Quartz from the Himalayas and high-vibrational Natrolite from the emerald mines of Russia.

Author Robert Simmons includes historical and mythological references for each stone, positing that the fabled Stone of the Holy Grail and the Philosopher’s Stone of the alchemists may have physical counterparts among the materials discussed. Simmons presents practices for deepening one’s awareness of the stones’ gifts—from expanding one’s consciousness, to healing, to fulfilling one’s personal and collective destiny. While emphasizing direct contact with stones, the book also explores crystal energy tools, energy environments, and applications such as stone elixirs and essences that can aid anyone on a spiritual path.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The internal fire of Robert Simmons warms this writing—or, I should say, fires it up, so that you can see your life in a new light and feel a new kind of love ignited. . . . It contains perhaps the deepest mysteries of the Earth—and of the Cosmos. . . . The purpose of this writing is to invite us into a process without end–a new way of living."
—Robert Sardello, PhD, author of Love and the Soul

"In the crucial quest to restore accord between the human world and the living world which surrounds us, the reverent recognition of trans-human intelligence is our only chance. We have forgotten the indigenous wisdom that tells us ‘all created things are People.’ Stepping out of this prevailing amnesia, Robert Simmons takes us deep into a living rapport and relation with the ‘Stone People.’ This book is a gift to all who stand ready to enter the dance of participation, the never-ending co-creation of all that is."
—Daniel Deardorff, author of The Other Within: The Genius of Deformity in Myth, Culture and Psyche

"Finally, a book that ventures deep into the true realm of human and mineral relationship! Robert has eloquently revealed the larger picture of human evolution and the role of minerals in the shift of Gaia at this time, as well as honestly detailing the journey to deep intimacy with our mineral teachers."
—Naisha Ahsian, coauthor of The Book of Stones and creator of The Crystal Ally Cards

Stones of the New Consciousness begins to spelunk the solidity of stones, taking us to the edge of consciousness and matter, and into the realm of co-creative evolution, fields of heart-intelligence, the crystalline nature of humans, the Soul of the world, myths and legends, shamanism, poets and prophets, and myriad ways that we can wrap our intelligence around the parallels and possibilities that working with stones offers… It is not light reading; it is, however, authoritatively original and inspiring, and weaves a fascinating tapestry of science and spirit that itself exemplifies the new consciousness the author strives to make more understandable and accessible… This book is going on my top shelf!”
—New Consciousness Review

    I Also Recommend:

    This is an amazing book! Every crystal lover needs to read this.

    I read and loved The Book of Stones, which is the best crystal book ever written, until this one! In Stones of the New Consciousness Robert Simmons takes us deeper into the realms of "Stone Beings" and teaches us how to relate to the stones in new ways and shows us how to co-create with the Soul of the World to help us and the Earth evolve. The first half of the book has several chapters exploring crystal meditations, the Liquid Crystal Body Matrix, Crystal tools, grids and healing/meditation environments, and lots of amazing new ideas. The second half 62 stones are met in new meditative ways by the author and the stones reveal themselves to us in their own voices. This is a must have book!!
