Metaphysical Properties: Black Merlinite is a stone of the deep Unconscious. It is an excellent stone for lucid dreaming, and it facilitates meditation, allowing one to “go deep” very readily. It offers a direct conduit to the Silence—the still point at the center of all things. It is useful in facilitating shamanic journeying, spirit communication, divination and prophetic vision. It teaches one to befriend one’s inner darkness, recognizing that everything experienced inwardly is a part of oneself. Black Merlinite can help one meet and reintegrate one’s rejected or lost parts, facilitating wholeness.
