Healing Rocks« on: May 23 2007 22:05:00 »
I've heard King Kamehameha's surf spot was a good place to find special very smoothe dense rocks that are good for warm rock massage. So I am looking for a few good rocks that want to participate in healing practices. They should be black, dense and very smooth and willing to join into healing practices. Can any one tell me how to get to King Kams surf spot or of any place that has these type of rocks on the Big Island. I'd love to watch you all surf I stick to playing on the shoreline.

One of the biggest mistakes tourists make is to take things home from Hawaii, things picked up on the beach, found snorkling, etc. There is a curse associated with removing Pele's belongings and that goddess is very particular about losing her "stuff". It sounds weird, but the mana is strong in Hawaii and there are a lot of stories about bad luck happening to people who take souveniers. Better to buy your stones than to risk the wrath of Pele. I'm not kidding about this.

Thanks for your concern. I am local and I am using respect and specific healing chants to call the rocks that will comunicate that they do wish to participate and they will not be leaving the island.

The best place I know of to find the kind of smooth, water-washed, black rocks you are speaking of is the pebble beach at the foot of Kona Paradise. Heading south on Highway 11, slow down after mile marker 97, and about 3/4 of a mile afterwards, you will see the Kona Paradise sign on your right at Kaohe Road. Turn down Kaohe Road, which will take you all the way down an extremely steep, well-paved road to the ocean where you can park. There, you ought to find all the healing rocks you are looking for.
