The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 5 November 2013 is Girasol Quartz aka Girasol Opal. Girasol Quartz (also called girasol opal) is a very ancient mineral found in Madagascar and has powerful energies. This stone can help you feel calm, relaxed, hopeful and optimistic. Girasol can also amplify your ability to be creative, thoughtful and focused in your life. Girasol Quartz brings a sense of balance to the emotions that can increase control over impulsive behaviour. This ability to be in control of your feelings empowers you to clearly think things through and just say no to hasty choices we sometimes regret later.
Metaphysically, girasol is a stone of gentle but powerful energy that can enhance and clarify feelings (especially those connected to love and passion), and allows the bearer to look deep within themselves for true feelings. Girasol is an excellent mineral tool for visualisation, dream paths, and guided direction of energy (such as Reiki). Girasol metaphysically enhances communication and will help the user to speak thoughts that otherwise might be difficult to express. It enhances creativity in artists and business people, and it is a powerful healing stone that firmly yet gently enhances healing of spiritual, emotional and physical wounds. Girasol’s unique capability allows it to connect to a user’s energy, cleanse it and circulate it so that self-healing becomes possible and the user is less dependent on outside energy stimulation. Girasol supports specific healing processes for diabetes, immune system imbalances, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Girasol is not recommended for crystal layouts, but rather it is recommended that the stone be held by the user to establish the energy connection. This stone is commonly used by healers prior to a healing session to encourage energy flow and healing in clients who are particularly blocked. It is also used effectively in distance healing techniques such as those applied by Reiki practitioners.
