A few months ago I was going through, what felt like an emotional roller coaster. I was in-between jobs, my 4 year relationship had just ended, and I wasn’t where I wanted to be in my life. My energy levels were extremely low and I was absolutely demotivated. This was when I decided to visit a local spiritual shop that sold a wide range of products including incense, dream catchers, candles, new age and Wicca products, native art and jewelry. But what caught my attention were the “healing rocks” that they had shimmering on their shelves. They had every natural stone you could think of, from Agate Slices and Black Onyx to Tiger’s Eye and Hematite. I spoke with the specialist for hours that day on several of the rocks’ meanings and purposes. He explained to me that crystal healing is an alternative medical technique in which crystals and other stones can be used to cure illnesses and protect against disease. It is said that natural crystals/stones allow for positive, healing energy to flow into the body while dispelling and preventing negative energy. After explaining my situation to him, he suggested that I invest in black tourmaline, green agate, a moonstone and green hematite. He went on to explain how these particular stones can help me, and I hope with this information, you are able to determine whether or not these types of stones or the many others that exist, are right for you!
Black tourmaline is said to ground spiritual energy and act a shield around the body to prevent negative forces from affecting you. It can be a useful healing stone to clear an individual’s aura, remove blockages in their life and disperse negative energy. If that weren’t enough, it also promotes self-confidence and works to heal the mind. This is an amazing stone to have if you feel that negativity is surrounding you. My mother absolutely swears by it and constantly states that she feels as though she has achieved mental clarity while wearing it. I definitely recommend this one!
Green agates are said to balance s person’s emotional, physical and intellectual cycles. This is a soothing and calming stone which helps bring boundless strength to the wearer. Like black tourmaline, green agates help to promote self-confidence and improve a person’s concentration and mental functionalities. This healing stone works to overcome negativity and inner anger in a person’s life. Green agate was probably the most interesting stone to me because I’m the kind of person that gets frustrated really easily when I feel overwhelmed and when I have too much work on my plate. I do not do my best work under pressure and I was looking for an outlet to help me balance those feelings and move down to a calmer state so I can focus better. Ever since I started wearing green agate on my bracelet, I kid you not, I have felt less stressed and I have been able to look at the bigger picture to be able to work out my thoughts. In the end, I get the job done without experiencing mental blockages.
Moonstones are allegedly strongly connected to the moon, “hence its name”, and has intuitive properties. It’s main purpose and most powerful affect is to encourage calming emotions within a person. The specialist at the local spiritual shop explained that moonstones have traditionally been used to enhance a person’s psychic abilities and develop clairvoyance.
Finally, the final stone that was recommended to me was green hematite. Green hematite is said to promote success and financial stability in a person’s life. It can be used to bring mental organization, can assist with original though processes, logical thinking, and mathematics. Green hematite also decreases negativity which can help to balance the body/mind/spirit connection.
