Moqui Stones, Earth's Excretions

Moqui Stones - Grounding BallsLet's face it, Moqui Stones look like brown balls of excrement. But, I assure you, they are clean, merely excretions of the Earth. Well, what has the Earth excreted, you might ask? Moqui Stones are a Hematite Sandstone concretion. And why are they so popular? Moqui Stones are also known as shaman stones, used since ancient times to ward off evil energies.

Shaman Stones for Grounding

My dad used to love to tell the story of how Native American shamans would rub Moqui stones together to create a screeching noise which would be offensive to the evil spirits. They would throw the stones into the fire, sparking and releasing any unwanted energies from the tribe. If you've ever rubbed two Moqui Stones together you can verify that they have a special hollow rock sound and a subtle earthy crunch. 

Today we use Moqui Stones for grounding. This connection with the Earth is what makes Moqui Stones so great for grounding. For those unfamiliar with the term grounding, grounding is our connection with the Earth and with the present moment in time; it is the knowledge that we are all a part of the grand circle of life.

You know when you need grounding energy when your mind wanders into the hypothetical world of what if's, focuses on the past or dwells on the future instead of enjoying this very moment in time. Grounding helps you focus on what you are doing right now (like reading these invaluable words of wisdom ;).

What to do with Moqui Stones

Moqui Stones come in a variety of sizes from marble small to baseball large. If you are using them for grounding, I would recommend choosing the stones that will fit comfortably in your hands.

Using a pair of Moqui Stones will help balance your left and right brains, and allow you to keep both feet on the floor. Simply holding Moqui Stones in your hands will activate their grounding energy, but energetically cleaning, charging and programming them will enhance your own focus on the wanted energy. 

Perhaps you have been waiting for me to address Moqui Stones's use with arthritis. Luckily, I do not have this ailment, but I know that many people suffer from arthritis especially as they get older. I have heard of many cases of people using Moqui Stones for arthritis relief. All you have to do is rub the stones over the affected area. Like any other healing treatment or medicine, you have to do this regularly and with the focus and intent on what you want to heal.

Enjoy the Power of Earthy Moqui Stones 

Crystals can be a powerful tool in your energy healing process. They help you focus the mind on what the mind cannot do alone. Enjoy pairs or single Moqui stones in your grounding, healing and energetic lives. 

Regardless of what they look like, Moqui Stones are great for connecting you with Earth's energy and reminding us that we are here in this life at this time right now! But, don't hesitate because Moqui stones are in limited supply. Read why in Illegal Moqui Marbles.

thank you very much for all the information on your site. Can you tell, if there is a crystal, that supports me to live more in the present and accept me as I am?

Kind regards

That is an interesting experience, Micheila. Thanks for sharing it. You are right, gem elixirs, created from an indirect method would be powerful.

I have a somewhat unusual used for the shaman Stone. I have used Shaman Stone essence in my coffee enema before, and it has an amazing ability to remove pathogens such as yeast from the intestines. I probably wouldn’t have ever tried this, except for that I am a colon hydrotherapist and much of my life’s work is about detox. Although I haven’t done it this way, I’m sure you could drink water with the essence of the shaman Stone in it and have a similar outcome.

Hi Laurie, so glad your friend Heidi lead you here. The Rainbow Obsidian chakra bracelet sounds perfect for you. It has the grounding and protective Rainbow Obsidian along with the chakra stones:

I am happy to direct you to any other crystals as well. Next week we are starting our Moqui Marble in-depth series, which is one of the most popular grounding stones at Satin Crystals, so stay tuned. You can get a head start here:

Hope you are enjoying semi-retirement. Yoga certification is wonderful, I have quite a few friends who did it and love to practice and teach now.

Thank you So much for this personal response. My friend Heidi had recommended you to me and we were talking about having a grounding stone or cristal for me since I am an empath and need to ground the energy. Im a PT body worker semi retired at tge moment .I also just finished my yoga certification for 200 hours so I really like the bracelet with Chakras and the grounding Stones .That sounds good I will make an account and I guess my question would be finding something that would give me grounding for myself too if I picked up energy or around me and I love the chakras as well I’m looking at probably a bead necklace or bracelet. Thank you again this is just so sweet to get a reply personally!

Hi Cyrus,

Amazing experience! I’m so happy to hear the Moqui helped you clear away from a destructive relationship. The pairs are so powerful, especially in making sure the male/female energy balance is right.

Thanks again, we love it when people tell us their crystal stories.

You used at the bottom of your article about our experiences with Moqui marbles so I thought I would respond. I own a male and female pair. I also have quite a bit of experience with shamanic journeying. So in my meditation I went to the desert and then under ground. While in a cave I then came in touch with the Ouroborous (not sure how to spell that). The world dragon flew through the air and talked with me about healing myself to get out of a deeply unhealthy relationship I was having at the time. After our talk the Ouroborous became transparent and flew through my chest and heart chakra area. After grounding after this meditation I felt so very much lighter. And have never looked back about getting involved in that unhealthy relationship.
