I'm sitting at my computer eating peanut butter on Ritz crackers and drinking a Pepsi wondering if I should have another slimfast for dinner to make that whole 2 shakes a day one meal thing work for me despite the peanut butter on ritz so I can slim a little before prom in 2 weeks, when Andrew starts sending me messages about some rocks he has. (*DEEP BREATH* Whooo...) Damit, I'm outta Pepsi OK anyway...
We were talking about rocks and energy and cedar boxes. I started thinking about my cedar chest, which is about 3 inches deep, 9 inches wide, and 5 inches long. I call it my treasure box, and I keep my Runes and all my stones in there, charged or not.
andrew keeps interrupting me with ICQ messages. That's ok though.
I was thinking about the effect the cedar has on the stones. Cedar feels reflective to me, not in the sense that it soaks in energy but reflects it back like a light shone in a mirror. I was thinking that when I keep a stone in there, it stays nice and tingly with energy much longer.
I need to stop eating these Ritz... so tempting.... Riiitz... peanut butter...
Anyway... When I leave a stone out, its like the energy radiating from it fades faster, because nothing is holding it in, it flows from the stone, doing the work I asked it to do, until none is left. That could take anywhere from a week to a month. (and also if my nosy little sister touched it.) (She's learning to drive.. using MY car... my poor little Honda...)(wow i really have ADD or something.)
I was thinking that maybe the cedar is like putting roast in a tupperware container, you can eat the roast a long time later if you put it in tupperware. More time = More sammiches. If you put the stones inside a cedar box, maybe it helps keep the energy from spreading, and fading off and blending into the other energies in the area. Or slows the rate of radiation that lessens the strength of the charging over time.
If I had a stone I charged for a spell, I would leave it out so it could work for its effects, but when I just cleanse and balance the natural energy of the stone and add some of my energy to it, the box helps me alot.
What do you think?
