Petrified wood allows us to tap into our patience, it represents our journey of spiritual growth at a steady and consistent pace. Petrified Wood takes a long time - over a million years to complete the process of petrification and this long journey’s patience is emulating from its contents. Petrified Wood will allow one to become more trusting in the process of life and in the journey of evolution. When we are feeling that “bad” things keep occurring, Petrified Wood will allow us to have trust in the obstacles thrown in our path. These obstacles are here to be tackled and remind us that they are eventually contributing to our highest good. When we are holding or wearing Petrified Wood, we are allowing and trusting the timing of the Divine, and are noticing the signs along the way.
