Stones of The New Consciousness


Stones of the New ConsciousnessStones of the New Consciousness


Robert Simmons has given us a guide through the space between ourselves and the stones and crystals that we may befriend. He has shone considerable light on the evolving edge of human consciousness and our ability to communicate with other realms of Intelligence. We relate through the heart, and once we learn the language of blessing, the whole natural world, and beyond, opens to us as kin. Robert further shares his discovery of new crystal varieties that are Intelligent Beings reaching toward humanity to express themselves to us in these evolutionary times.
