Shamans frequently use the dense energy of stones on their mesas, or altars and in their healing ceremonies.
The stones are used as medicine pieces to enhance the transfer of healing energies to the one being healed.
The word "khuya" comes from the Quechua word, khuyay, which means to love. Technically the Quechua word for stone is rumi, however, when a rumi becomes a stone of caring or a container of affection, it becomes a khuya. This therefore means it has been consecrated and set aside for a sacred purpose on the mesa. Purchased from a sacred artifact antique dealer these stones are extremely powerful and weigh quite a lot.
