The first vision i see is of someone standing on the shore. They pick up a rock and toss it into the pond.
The next vision is of Kuan Yin, Goddess of compassion with arms outreached. (Kuan Yin removes obstacles, erases past offenses, dispenses mercy, healing and spiritual graces.)
Both visions are part of the same message. The rock and pond example, I am told, represents Karma. The action is the throwing of the rock. The reaction is the ripples that form on the water, fanning outward, becoming larger and wider as they expand. Each ripple affects something or someone, seen or unseen. Their reaction, in turn, affects another thing and another one. On and on it goes.
One of Pinolite's properties is to act as a Karmic healing stone. Pinolite energy will open the door of awareness and understanding of past/present life karmic experiences, aid in the healing of old karmic hurts and relieve karmic debt. The Kuan Yin energy represents compassion in the reliving and releasing of these past experiences. In other words, be kind to yourself as you work through this stuff.
This is a stone of dual personalities and complexities. Each piece is magnificently unique. The patterns tell a story. YOUR story. The patterns that you see when looking into Pinolite will reflect the experiences and beliefs of your life, your journey.
Pinolite is a stone of optimal balance between higher vibrations and lower ones. It would be a perfect piece for intuitives and/or mediums to use when working with the higher vibrations to receive wisdom/information while still remaining grounded to the physical. In this way, the information presented will be received with more clarity and understanding.
While the colors would suggest a physical grounding and balancing stone, and it could indeed be used in such a way, I get the distinct impression that it is of a higher vibration and connects more fully to the spiritual energies/spiritual realms.
Pinolite is a stone of compassionate service and altruism. There is a distinct energy of connection and cooperation for a mutual goal.
It is the cornerstone for any practice, creating a strong and stable foundation, keeping the mind open to all beliefs, possibilities and experiences.
Use Pinolite to help ease the overwhelming feelings of nervous tendencies, anxiety or panic disorders.
Physically, Pinolite would work well to aid in the relief of migraines and other issues around the head area.
Use Pinolite as an energy scrubber to remove toxins from all energy bodies. As such, it would be a wonderful stone to use in crystal healing work to locate energy blockages, break these blockages up and remove them. It can also be used as an energy sweeper to clear and clean all chakras, helping to balance the speed and direction of each rotation.
