“Imagination, as Einstein once said, is more important than knowledge. Knowledge refers to facts, conditions, or principles already known thus rooting it in the past. Through knowledge alone there can be repetition only, no creativity”(Simmons, 2015, Pg. 149).
Metaphysics has become a popular topic when it comes to crystals and stones. This piece offers some insight into the different metaphysical properties that are reported, for popular crystals or stones.
Yes, there are plentiful places to invest in crystals online. However, it is noted that rubbing or feeling the crystal can help you identify if the energy that resonates with you personally. Some advocate for electing crystals or stones without even examining their name, or looking up their connotations. It is proposed that we are pulled to certain stones for certain reasons that vary for each individual. If you are unsure where to begin with metaphysical stones a great starter pack can consist of Rose Quartz, Citrine, Clear Quartz, Tourmaline, Selenite, Agate, Chrysocolla, Serpentine, and Malachite. Each stone benefits different spiritual aspects of our lives, as well as improves various emotional and physical elements as well. Here are some metaphysical claims on just a few of these stones:
Chrysocolla assists with the expelling of nervousness, stress, and other anxiety-based imbalances within our body. It is said that it can boost the adjustment of the thyroid and adrenals. Chrysocolla is a stone of acknowledgement of the feminine energies in both women and men. It beams kindness and potential, cultivating that power is best conveyed through tenderness. This stone works to enhance one’s empathic relation with the Earth. It promotes one’s sensitive connection with the Earth’s consciousness. Chrysocolla sparks the throat chakra for open connection of one’s inner wisdom. It is reported that one will begin to hear himself deliver a thought more complexing, when transforming and developing one’s ideas in an impromptu manner.
Citrine expands lucidity of cognition, strengthens imagination, and amplifies the powers of will. It opens the second chakra which is able to activate powers of the innovative imagination. Citrine stimulates the sixth chakra (the third eye) developing the thinking process and heightens mental clarity. Common Citrine is helpful for digestive issues and metabolism. It can be used to reinforce weight loss and build energy during exercise.
Black Tourmaline is a perfect stone for those of us who work or live in demanding places or circumstances. This stone provides a psychic safeguard against these challenges, and acts like a vacuum to rid oneself and one’s surroundings of antagonism and dissension. It has the ability to absolve negative energy and turn it into applicable energy. Black Tourmaline is also an electrical gemstone, and can be used to cleanse and balance energetic systems within the body. Physical benefits of this stone include ridding the body of toxins, and supporting the purge of heavy metals and environmental toxicants.
Rose Quartz activates the heart chakra initiating love for oneself, one’s life, everything and everyone in it. This stone helps to break down one’s boundaries of isolation and mistrust, while healing the heart of it’s wounds. It is said that Rose Quartz penetrates down to the cellular level, and works to reprogram the cells for bliss and endurance, rather than death and anguish. This stone is calming and boosts the release of doubt, dread, unease, and past emotional trauma. Rose Quartz balances the physical heart and reinforces a more stable heart. It works to shift the stress-based physiology to greater levels of love-based physiology.
Serpentine is said to dwell in the spine, coiled almost four times around the sacrum. It is said that one feels a fire up the spine, activating each chakra. Individuals have experienced a deep dimension of psychic and spiritual experience. Wearing or ruminating with Serpentine can assist with the surrender of fear of change and hardship, and to look forward at the future with intention and excitement. Serpentine can aid in cellular regeneration and recharge one’s energy.
I hope that you were able to learn about a stone that resonates with you on a personal level. There are hundreds of stones that offer metaphysical forms of the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of your life. I hope this information has ignited the interest within yourself to learn more information about a different side of stones, that many of us didn’t know about (until now).
