Hagstones

Posted by Felicia on October 10, 2009 at 10:28 AM

Hagstones, Holeystones, Witchstones and Earth's Eyes, all names for the naturally occuring stones with a hole worn through it. Often found at the beach or near rivers, these stones have been long been used for protection and the raising of power. Hagstones are believed to provide protection from hexes, spells and negative energy, partly because the holes are worn by water, and water disappates most spells. Anything thrown at the owner is channeled through the hole, and as it passes through it is broken and left harmless, although some believe it is redirected to the source (thus speeding the process of the threefold law. Many people used Hagstones to protect them or their goods from witches, but their use predates that.

 Hagstones are also used for the raising and focusing of power, and are believed to bring good luck. Some like to seek one out, and on finding the right one will cleanse them, then carry them with them or keep them on their altar. Often Hagstones are given as gifts, for they are strongest when either used by the person who found them, or when they have been given in love.

 When finding or choosing a Hagstone, you should always go for the one that calls to you, but often people find that theirs reflects their personality, for instance, a pale soothing colour would suggest a calm personality.

 Do you use or own a Hagstone, or would you ever use one? Let me know what you think in a comment. I myself have a Hagstone I wear as a necklace and I keep a few dotted around, and my eldest niece keeps one by her bed I helped her find.

 

Blessed Be

I used to have one, mine was a Japanese luck stone I bought while traveling abroad. I braided a chain on it with ribbon and leather string and hung it above my bed, but I couldn't find it after we moved.

In my youth I spent a lot of time at the waters edge fishing and had never found a stone with a hole worn in it by water and had never heard of such a thing until now...if I found one, I would most definitely use it.

Drakka, most new age shops over charge for stones... I suggest you find someplace that sepcializes in crystals (or try the internet). At a general new age shop they'll cost 5-10$, but a good price is no more then three or four.

you'd be better off looking for your own, even look amoungst places with pebbles and gravel (like driveways etc), the few times i've seen them for sale it was about £15 each, which is a huge amount of money considering all it takes is about 5 to ten minutes hunting, and a lot of the time the holes are drilled so not natural, and they won't work so well as one you have found yourself. Do you ever visit a beach or river? you can find them there if you take a little while out to look, also natural mini crystal clusters can be found often at beaches, i've found some gorgeous ones this year.

I found 3 the other week. On a walk along my local shore. What do you know about stones that have 2 holes in them? I will use them and see for myself what they mean :D Time to cleanse them!

I have three that I found yesterday. There is a creek that runs through my property. The area here is predominantly limestone, as such, it lends itself to the creation of such stones.

Finding three in one day is rare, but the stones themselves are not. At least not where I live.

Blessed be!

I would love to have one, and I've been looking, I just can't find one to save my life. Hagstones are also believed to be seeing stones that let you see fairies. I find this interesting, how they break down spells and the sheild between worlds like they are one and the same.

Where would the BEST place to find a Hagstone? I live near a small creek connected to the Chadakoin River. Would I be able to find one in that creek?
