Our October 2018 Gem Wise Set: Goddess Amaterasu – The Light Within Us All, is here!
Gem Wise is my course on the magic of gemstones. This year, we are exploring “A World of Magic”, where I take students on an adventure into the spiritual practices of global civilizations and meta-cultures. The gemstones covered in each class relate to a specific theme and will be available for you to purchase every month in a special Gem Wise set.
Each month, we learn about the stones in the Gem Wise set, including their metaphysical properties and how to use them. Each set ties to a special theme and the focal civilization of the month. Our examination spans from ancient to contemporary times. Together, we tap into the power of these gems, infusing our own modern practices with their ancient magic. Included in our discovery are each culture’s associated myths and lore that have captivated imaginations for ages.
This set includes the gemstones and engraved acrylic grid that accompany October’s Gem Wise class. If you would like to join us for October’s Gem Wise class, click here.
October 2018 Gem Wise Set: Goddess Amaterasu – The Light Within Us All
This October, we are exploring the culture of ancient Japan and sun goddess Amaterasu, the most important deity of the Shinto religion and ruler of Takama no Hara (the High Celestial Plain), the domain of the kami, or spirits.
Legend has it that Amaterasu, who was held responsible for maintaining balance on Earth, gave to her descendant Ninigi: the mirror, Yata no Kagami; the jewel, Yasakani no Magatama; and the sword, Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi. Collectively, the three became the Imperial Regalia of Japan.
Now, I will not reveal too much here, because we are excited with anticipation to explore these gems in our classroom this August. You won’t want to miss this class!
In this Gem Wise Set, you will receive five stones: one (1) natural hessonite garnet to represent Amaterasu herself, one (1) rhyolite to represent the mirror, one (1) nephrite jade to represent the jewel, one (1) outback smoky quartz to represent the solar sword, and one (1) moldavite to represent the kite – the emblem of Amaterasu. You will also receive an engraved acrylic designed to grid and hold the magic of Amaterasu and the intentions of these stones.
Enroll now to join us as we work with these stones to call forth the magic of Amaterasu. I’m so excited for class, and I hope to see you all there!
**Not all items in this set are from the civilization of focus. Where possible we gather items from the civilization of origin. However, when this is not possible, we gather items that we believe reflect the energy of this civilization. Athena will discuss in class which items are sourced from the country of focus, and which ones simply reflect or represent the energy of this civilization.
This listing is for one (1) October 2018 Gem Wise Set: Goddess Amaterasu – The Light Within Us All, as described above. Yours will arrive lovingly parceled for your enjoyment along with a special parchment containing descriptions of your stones and blessings to read aloud.
