Crystal Correspondences to the Peace Prayer of St Francis of Assisi


The following article Crystal Correspondences to the Peace Prayer of St Francis of Assisi was inspired by the late Dr Wayne W Dyer, who was I believe, one of the great spiritual teachers of our time. His philosophy mixed New Thought Self-Actualization with nondenominational spirituality and was based very heavily in his later life around Oneness and each of us being a Divine being.

I valued him as one of my mentors. Reading recently from his biographical book I Can See Clearly, he made a very good account for God

(whatever name you choose to use or however you conceive this being or energy to be) being everywhere and in everything. (My thought is that it is this very same presence in crystals that contributes to their magical and metaphysical powers).

He also made several references to St Francis and his Peace Prayer being an ideal model for living our lives. He kept a framed copy of it on his desk where he could see and aspire to it every day.

I believe it could serve us well to model it in the way we live our own lives. This could lead us closer to living as self-actualised and powerfully loving individuals. Several crystals carry energies that correspond to the sentiments of each stanza and can help us to lift our energy to better fulfil these intentions. Below is my selection. 

Carry, wear or keep your favourites around you to help raise your energies to accommodate and purposefully live your goals.

Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi:

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

Where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek …

To be consoled as to console,

To be understood as to understand,

To be loved as to love;

For it is in giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.”
