Carrying immense healing energy, Preseli Bluestone radiates power and forms a doorway to other dimensions. The central ring at Stonehenge is formed from Preseli Bluestone, a spotted dolerite transported more than two hundred miles from Pembrokeshire in Wales—an incredible feat as the wheel had not yet been invented. Legend tells us the stones were flown from Ireland by Merlin, King Arthur’s magician, but the stones are five thousand years older, and originally formed Stonehenge’s outer circle. This outer circle, now known as the Aubrey holes, mapped the phases and eclipses of the long moon cycle—and Bluestone is a stone of dreaming and far memory. Tradition says sick individuals were passed between the stones for healing purposes. A new, even earlier Bluestone circle has recently been discovered nearby, which archaeologists believe linked the domain of the dead (the area around Stonehenge) with that of the living (Durrington Walls). Bluestone, therefore, has an ancient connection to the ancestors and is excellent for multidimensional journeying. It links to the magical, archetypal Merlin energy that brings out the shaman in everyone.

Connected to currents in the Earth, Bluestone has a strong magnetic charge that can be harnessed for Earth healing and to access ancient knowledge. Bluestone increases sensitivity to vibrations, heightening awareness of crystal, meridian, or sound frequencies. Some Bluestone is lithographic (see Granite, page 96).


Balancing the meridians and restoring energetic harmony, Bluestone creates unshakable core stability for the physical and energetic bodies. Placed over the thymus gland, it energetically strengthens the subtle immune system. At the base of the skull, it harmonizes the brain stem and activates the hippocampus, an inner compass that orients you in the physical world. A powerful Earth harmonizer, Bluestone ameliorates the effects of electromagnetic smog and light pollution. It facilitates deep karmic healing under the guidance of an experienced practitioner. Combining Bluestone with chalk (on the left in this photo) produces a powerful battery to combat energy depletion in the physical body or the Earth.


If you have lost your sense of spiritual direction, Bluestone reconnects you to your life purpose. It focuses your mind and strengthens willpower, helping you face challenges with equanimity. If part of your soul or emotional energy remains entangled in the past, Bluestone frees you to live in the present moment. (Note: If a headache develops when using Bluestone, turn it or yourself so the stone’s magnetic resonance aligns with the Earth’s.)
