This completely unique reference book combines both the traditional scientific information and the energetic qualities and Spirit of selected Stones A-Z. This allows us to relate to and respectfully utilize the full, conscious gifts of Stones-the Earth’s timeless recordkeepers. Their wisdom runs through the ages and knows how to make miracles at any time. The second half of the book offers absolutely new, sacred stone combinations, like “Bliss” and “Immortality.” Whenever any of us combines our truth and energies with full intent, the creativity that we produce is exponential. In other words, when Tohmas and Marilyn combine their hearts to listen to life, their energy does not double, it expands 3, 4, 100+ times! It is the same with the Stones. In these combinations they offer us the expansion of all their energies and wisdom at a time on the planet when we most need it. The stone combinations also allow us the opportunity to open our hearts to deeper layers of respect, in realizing that each stone in the combinations is a single unique being (as well as a member of a larger family) that has its own special properties that it brings to the combination beyond the generic family traits it also exhibits. As we open to these special individual qualities we open to the realization that each stone is a live, conscious being. We then become more capable of entraining with the stone combinations’ energy from a new standpoint of openness, respect, clarity and unconditional love. Stones Alive! was born from our listening to the Stones. We put the words from these Earth recordkeepers alongside the appropriate geological information in a way that makes this a new kind of reference book. It happily joins science and mystery. To us, that makes anything possible. It shows us the way into the new millenium by peacefully integrating all of our gifts and all of the incredible resources of our planet home. By listening to the stone information combined this way, we can feel the ancient, timelessness of the Stones, and we feel how they are evolving. Their story is changing every single minute, just as the Earth is and just as we are. All of us are growing in our own unique way and contributing that to the whole of life on Earth. We feel honored, utterly, to have co-created “Stones Alive!” and are very happy to share it with the world. We invite you to share the adventure and to grow with it.

“No matter what you see, you are surrounded, gloriously, by infinite guides and angels.”
From the Greek work, phenakos, for “deceiver,” from being mistaken for Quartz, I am Beryllium Silicate, a colorless, white, yellow, pink to brown vitreous mineral formed in hypothermal veins, pegmatites and Mica schist. Hexagonal in structure, I form in well-developed flat rhombohedral to long prismatic crystals, striated lengthwise, often forming penetration twins. I am among the harder minerals at 7.5 to 8, and my cleavage is poor in one direction. I can be found in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, and in the Russian Urals, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, and the United States.
Physical Integration: Embraces clear thinking actions. Focuses on and tones weaknesses in the body. Sharpens instincts. Deepens breathing.
Emotional Integration: Gives us guidance. Assists us in feeling loved and supported as we are. Aligns our heart with all of life. Promotes full emotional healing and integration. Millennial Uses: The next great unexplored territory lies within us; it is the inexplicable unlimitedness and Spirit that comprises all of us. Phenacite directs us, on that level, to all the guides, angels and guardians that we need (sometimes without our conscious awareness). It enhances our communication with these unseen levels of life and offers us pathways to live multi-dimensionally. Even though we may not understand it, if we listen to the gifts of Phenacite, we open ourselves up to the perfect possibilities for which we may be designed.
Electrical Body Alignment: Focuses our instantaneous body/mind/heart integration on exploring our Spirit. Affirmation of Support: “I am surrounded by the blessings of my guides and angels, constantly.”
StoneStory: Deep within the womb of feelings, you know me. You know me because you know yourself. You know that your Spirit reaches beyond your words your acts even your dreams. It stalks the open light of unimaginability. Yes, yes, yes. There I live. I breathe for you there. You need nothing, for you surround yourself with the sweetness of every loving Spirit. You remember this. You know this. You are unlimitedness.
Summary: Phenacite urges us to act upon our unknown, boundless perfection. (See Stone Combination Section for Phenacite in “Aurora’s Dream,” “Guilt into Perfection,” “Immortality,” “Gabriel’s Dawn,” “Listening,” “Spiral of Life” and “Timeless Treasure.”)
