Moqui Marbles (Shamon Stones) History Mythology Information: Moqui Marbles or Shaman Stones are an iron concretion that are only found in the Plains of the Navajo Sandstone area in Southeast Utah. The word ‘Moqui’ comes from the Native American Hopi language and means ‘the dead’. Hopi legends say that the deceased ancestors of the Hopi people used to return to earth at sunset and pay with these ‘balls’ or ‘marbles’.
Moqui Marbles are generally used in pairs, however, sometimes you can feel ‘drawn’ to use only one of the balls at a time depending on what your needs are. I was gifted a female Moqui Ball years ago by a Native Shaman and have used her loving energy when needed for years. The Shaman also told me that she had the male for me when I was ready to receive the energy. I look forward to that personal progression in the future.
Moqui Marbles are usually sold in pairs with a round slightly smaller female and a larger disco-like or slightly flatter male. When using a pair you will generally place the female stone in your receiving hand (left) and the male in your right hand.
Moqui Marbles (Shaman Stones) Metaphysical Healing Properties: Moqui Marbles have a deep connection to ‘Mother Earth’ and connecting to her loving energies. They are a very balancing stone that allows you to tune into anything that is ‘out of balance’ around you and help to send healing energy that way so that balance is readjusted and found. They are an amazing stone to use when you feeling in the need of any grounding, reconnecting and protection as they allow you to feel like your feet are firmly planted on the ground.
Over the years Shaman Stones have been used to help to reconnect with your ancestors in order to bring the wisdom through fro the past and retrieve lost information. They are also a valuable tool to uses when you wish to embark on a Vision or Shamanic Quest helping to enable you to connect with the divine energy and have more vivid visions or dreams. Affirmation: I live in balance and harmony with everything around me.
