In the North, we receive with the mind through clarity and caring. Our mind is an open cup, ready to receive from many viewing points and perspectives. When we are open only to one viewing point, we can get tunnel vision. The more ideas and concepts we can receive with our minds, the greater will be our capacity to see many different perspectives and therefore, gain more clarity.
The precious gems are holders-receivers in the North. We put them in our jewelry, in breastplates, in amulets, in talismans, so they will hold what we as humans determine they will. They are molded and hold meaning which they have received from varying cultures and uses. When humans wear gems, they have the capacity to act as a healer by receiving negative energy.

Each of the worlds have a wheel of their own. Each of the directions dance with the Mineral World in different ways.
In the South, the sands and soils, are known as the holder-givers. The sands hold the potential for giving of life. Also the sands dance with the fluidity of water. Watch how the sands dance when waves crash the shore.
In the West, the rocks and stones are the holder holders for they hold the stability and strength of the earth. One only has to lie down on a large rock on a sunny day to experience how they hold the sun’s heat.
In the North, the precious and semi-precious gems are holder-receivers. They are molded and hold meaning which they have received from varying cultures and uses. When humans wear the gems they act as a healer by receiving negative energy.
In the East are the crystals, the holder-determiners. The crystals are known as the brain cells of Grandmother Earth, and when used in a healing way, they clarify and transform disease with their fire energy.
In the Center are the mixed ores and metals. They are the holder-transformer catalysts. These are ores like gold and aluminum that have been transformed by time and/or alchemy and are now used as catalysts in their own right. Look at the gold bullion, used as the catalyst underlying our entire money system.
