Metaphysical Meditation Tip- Get Connected with Palladium

Over the past week The Shift Doctors (Tracy Latz, M.D. & Marion Ross, Ph.D.) have been experimenting with meditation with and without the use of a palladium ring worn on the pinky finger (5th digit) of the left hand. We tried this after being told by our good friend and astrologer Steve Nelson that various people in the metaphysical realm had been using platinum rings worn on the pinky of the left hand for receiving spiritual wisdom during meditation. He said the reason that platinum was used was because it had in it 5 to 10% impurity of palladium. He recommended that we consider getting a platinum ring to wear and see what occurred.

Well, we both sat with the idea… but the cost of a platinum ring seemed a bit much for such an experiment… chuckle. Then out of curiosity we began to search for more information about palladium rather than platinum. First, we looked in one of our favorite reference books on metals/gemstones/crystals titled Love is in the Earth by Melody.  The following direct quotes are from Melody’s book: “Palladium can be used extensively in healing and in the facilitation of total wellness. It furthers ones affinity with the outer ethers, providing for a joining of efforts or interests between the self and the infinite energies available. Continual use of palladium provides for a permanent synthesis of energies, bringing an essential oneness to the awareness and the actualization of individual creativity.”

“The energy contained within palladium has been derived from the distant ancestral form of wisdom; it, therefore, tends to as a catalyst for all ‘light-based’ activities. It furthers the initiation of, and the continuity in, astral travel and channeling strengthening the attachment and allowing for consciousness during these activities. It also promotes withdrawal from these states.”

Palladium “assists one to cease and desist in those activities which are remaining from outdated conditioning, providing impetus to advancement in the transformation of ones life into the vision of the new and conscious humanity. It further assists in providing augmentation to the social skills necessary for both interaction and associations which supplement ones growth.”

“Palladium represents Athena, the goddess of wisdom, the arts, enterprise, and prudent disputes. It provides the energies to further pursuits in these areas and to inspire triumph. It was said to have been used as one of the materials comprising a statue which ensured the safety of Troy, providing for protection from dis-ease and assisting in the retrieval of hidden knowledge.”

“It has also been used to serve as a vehicle for the entry into the realm of ancient knowledge and sacred wisdom, providing for access to, and furthering the ‘translation’ capabilities applicable to, the sacred Buddhist texts. This mineral has been used to stimulate the electrical energy within the body to maintain the alignment between the physical and ethereal body, and to moderate emotional intensity in all situations. It can also be used in the treatment of disorders of the lungs, the cerebral cortex, and the circulatory system. It can reduce the violence of dis-ease and can raise the vibratory level of the bodies to resonate with the higher energies of perfection.” <For more about Melody and her teachings see her website.>

From our ancient mystery school training, we both understood that in spiritual anatomy, the pinky finger represents psychic or intuitive connection to Divine or ancient wisdom. The left pinky would be about receiving such wisdom and the right pinky would be about expressing or giving/teaching/writing about such wisdom.

We agreed that it made sense from a metaphysical standpoint that a ring containing palladium worn on the left pinky should assist with connecting to the ethers and Divine or ancient wisdom; and it also made sense that such a ring worn on the right pinky finger would assist with expressing what had been received. Since the cost of even a small platinum ring can be quite a bit in today’s market., we were thrilled when we found out that a method has been discovered in recent years to extract palladium from platinum and now it is possible to obtain a pure palladium ring which is much less expensive! So we both set out to obtain such a ring to test out the theory and put it into practice.

Wow! It has been an interesting week for us both. We suggest that you experience it for your self as it has literally been out of this world. 🙂 We definitely intend on wearing our new rings on our upcoming trips to sacred sites!

Remember that the invisible world is much more powerful than the visible one!

  1. Just got mine today. I found that there are 2 different kinds of palladium alloys now being used to make rings. Palladium 950 is 95% palladium/5% ruthenium. Palladium 500 is 50% palladium and the other 50% is a mixture of silver & copper. Obviously the palladium 500 is significantly cheaper, but I still had to try the 950.
