Petrified Wood is perhaps one of the most abundant forms of the fossil record left behind, each originally coming from ancient trees that became fossilized after their life-cycle was complete, some being hundreds of thousands, even millions of years old. With beautiful striations of brown, black, even yellow and pink, these tumbled pieces of Petrified Wood we’re offering to you here are truly magnificent. A stone of the Earth Star and Root chakras, Petrified Wood is a powerful anchor of ancient wisdom, gentle grounding and powerful stabilization. These stones allow for past-life recall, and for connecting to your family lineage. Trees are known in many magical practices as doorways to other dimensions; hold one of these tumbled stones during meditation and ask the tree spirit any question you may seek understanding of. You may find yourself diving deep into the roots of the tree, coming into contact with the bones of your elders or prior lifetimes, receiving wisdom from the past. Or perhaps you’ll be taken up into the highest branches of the tree, connecting to your future ancestors, spirit guides and higher-self, receiving wisdom from the future. Or maybe you’ll stay here in the middle-world, simply sitting at the base of the trunk, receiving insight that only being in the present moment can bring. Work with one of these beautiful Petrified Wood tumbled stones when feeling scattered or anxious to remain in the present moment, to stay grounded and to honor planet Earth & all of her beautiful creations- having gratitude for all that has come before you, and staying mindful of all that is yet to come.
