Healing Your Depression with Crystals
Hello everyone and a happy springtime to all of you. We are having the most wonderful weather and living in Wyoming lets us really, really enjoy it. The lilacs are budding, the pussy willow is full of furry catkins and even the roses are turning green! This is early for this growth and surely makes us aware that earth changes are happening.
This month I would like to talk to you about depression. This might be a depressing subject (no pun intended) but so many people experience different levels of depression that I felt we could use a little help with dealing with it.
Where does depression come from and why?? Really, I don’t feel anyone would consciously want to feel so down with little joy in their lives. Depression occurs when one has asked for a greater awareness. When they ask, their limitations are being put away. Depression is simply their greater good trying to get their attention! So, what stones do you use to counteract depression and bring in joy? Let’s try any of those that promote joy or maybe one that would open the Christ center. No depression there!
Dioptase is an emerald green stone usually in a cluster of tiny crystal points. A little of this stone is a lot because man has not allowed himself much joy. You may use this in the area of the adrenals with citrine to alleviate fear and bring a more delightful encounter with life.
Atacamite is another of those stones that dispenses joy in a magnified way. Joy vibrates in the cellular structure of the physical body and so, as this would be meditated upon or worn upon the body, it would bring into the physical affairs, into the daily life a greater sense of joy, delight with being and a greater sense of well-being. It would assist in sweetening the emotional nature and uplifting the heart and the mind and making the sense of joy real in this illusion.
Bustamite will bring a birthing force of new understanding of self and the assistance of aligning the will in love. This will help those who are attuned, those who will seek it, to reach more comfortable levels more quickly.
These stones would accelerate those with depression beyond themselves because when they are trapped in the limit they feel depressed because they are not this anymore and because they have asked to know, now they would find it. This is like the butterfly coming out of the chrysalis; there must be a breaking open to allow them to expand beyond their limits, gently or dramatically. Once one has reached the point where they are open, it would be wise to use either onyx or hematite to keep them grounded. Often times, even though they have asked for the Grand Revelation, there is a tendency to wish simply to die from all that is revealed to them. It is a time of great trauma as in birth. We all wish so for it to be sweet and peaceful.
Onyx is a very powerful grounding stone when the energy is attempting to leave the body or when one is running away, uncentered or scattered. The black variety is best for this use.
Hematite is another grounding stone that will bring one back into their body which is vitally important in this time so they can face what they are attempting to escape. This would also provide protection so they would feel safe in the opening.
This ascension of the energy is so important that even with some of the challenges we deal with, it is so worth it!
Just a reminder to join me and my guests on my talk radio show on www.voiceamerica.com. I’m on the 7th Wave channel on Thursdays at 3:00 PM MDT. It’s been a learning curve but I’m improving!
I will be teaching Crystal Healing I on April 28th and 29th for those interested in learning how to use the stones for themselves and others. If you would like a flyer, let me know. Create a wonderful month and have fun!
