A stone of transformation, Petrified Wood is excellent for assisting us in releasing that which no longer serves us. It is good for protecting yourself from negativity during healing and meditation work.
An excellent stone for anxiety and acceptance and to take control of what is manageable within your own limits and power.
One of the best stones for grounding as it connects us in various ways to our past, our ancestry, the earth beneath us, the energies of Gaia and the wisdom of nature. This helps us to feel safe and strong, so that we can access courage for beginning something new, dealing with difficulty and recovering from trauma.
It is very useful in assisting with grounding high vibrational energy to the earth, much in the same way as Mookaite Jasper and Smoky Quartz.
Sometimes Petrified Wood is used in journeying/meditation/healing/dream work to connect with loved ones who have passed over.
Physically this is an excellent stone for the immune system, the joints/bones/muscles, chronic fatigue, sleep patterns, the nervous system and anxiety, genetic/DNA disorders and most significantly, when we are on the road to recovery after a serious illness or operation. What is interesting about Petrified Wood is that not only does it help us with the physical aspects of healing but also those that are metaphysical and spiritual. It assists us in seeing the ‘lesson’ associated with illness and physical difficulties.
