protection and astral projection. Ritual Lore: Meteorites have
long been held in fascination by humans. They have been thought
to be gifts from the gods and goddesses. Certain meteorites,
such as the Kaaba stone in Mecca and a stone thought to represent
the Great Mother Goddess of Phrygia, have been worshipped as
symbols of divinity.
A four-ton stone has been revered
in China as a holy object since the 1200's. The stone, shaped
like a crouching ox, resides in a Buddhist shrine. Recently,
however, a team of Chinese geologists studied the stone and
determined it to be a meteorite that landed about 1,300 years
ago. The stone is no longer worshipped. In Babylon the meteorite
was a powerful magical protectant. It was thought to remove
all evils due to its strange appearance and the 'roar of its
awful might.' Peridot is often found in meteorites.
I held a small cut meteorite recently
and studied the green peridot crystals that were packed inside
it. The stone was worth about $3,000, so it didn't go home with
me. Recently, tiny diamonds were found inside meteorites that
fell in Mexico in 1969--the first discovered that had formed
off our planet. At one place or another on Earth, meteorites
were used to explain the origin of life. If rocks fell to the
earth from space, so too could plants, water, animals and people.
Symbolically, meteorites can be viewed as the spiritual penetrating
the physical, as astral power, divine order or whim, though
a friend of mine says they're melted remains of spaceships from
Meteorites are unearthly things, literally. They possess the
powers of intergalactic flight, of movement, of speed, and of
energy unhindered by gravity. Use them in rituals of protection.
Place one on the altar near white candles; or carry in the hand.
They are also called upon to promote astral projection. A small
meteorite or a fragment of one is placed beneath the pillow
during attempts at conscious astral projection. Yes, they are
available for sale at reasonable prices. I visited the Ruben
H. Fleet Space Theatre's gift shop in San Diego a few days ago
and found small meteorites for $3.00.
