This is a practice that helps us connect with Mother Earth and Father Sun. By doing this exercise, we play a role in transmitting light to the Earth and love to the Sun, using the innate ability of the crystal to transmit and receive energy. The Huichol say that as human beings, our role is to connect Earth and Sky. This practice helps us fulfill this role, and in doing so, we too receive the light and love in our hearts.
Steps of the practice:
- Hold the crystal horizontally on your heart (point to your left). Breathe your love into the crystal.
- Hold the crystal with the point up to the sun to remind the crystal where it came from while allowing the crystal to fill itself with light.
- Place the crystal point down into the earth (about halfway into the ground). Now you have the opportunity to speak with Mother Earth, asking her to receive the light from Father Sun.
- After some time, take the crystal out of the earth and while holding it horizontally, circle the crystal around five times (sending the light to the four directions and to your heart – the fifth direction).
- Place the crystal back onto your heart, and now breathe in the love of Mother Earth. You helped give her light, and in return, you receive her love.
- Finally, hold the crystal back up to the sun, sending the love of Mother Earth to Father Sun – helping her to reciprocate the gift of light she received.
– This practice should be done in the daytime and on the earth.
– You can do this practice as often as you like.
