The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 17 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 17 October 2013 is Larimar. Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in its volcanic origins. One of the few crystals to balance the polarities of these energies, Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. It is powerful in meditation and in connecting to the Divine Feminine, and is particularly helpful in releasing emotional bonds, patterns or principles that no longer serve the highest good. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart.

A rare blue variety of Pectolite, Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava. The copper substitution in Pectolite instead of calcium produces beautiful translucent shades of soft blues, white and turquoise marked with streaks and patterns of white, and may contain red or brown areas of oxidation or Hematite inclusions. The more intense the blue and contrast within the stone, the rarer and higher its value. Note: blue is photosensitive and may fade over time if exposed to too much light or heat.

Larimar is also known as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, Atlantis Stone, and Stefilia’s Stone. Originally discovered in 1916, it was named by the Dominican who re-discovered it in 1974, taking the first letters of his daughter’s name, Larissa, and the Spanish word for the sea, mar, to create Larimar.

Use Larimar to overcome fear of doctors, hospitals, injections or surgery. It promotes clear and confident communication with health personnel.

Larimar is a wonderful stone for mothers, during and after pregnancy. It helps in alleviating post-partum depression, and relaxes the stress associated with new parenthood.

As a soothing Water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace. It may be used to diminish the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, and when one’s kundalini energies have become uncomfortably active.

As a crystal of the Throat Chakra, using Larimar in a pendant or laying-on-of-stones treatment will unleash the voice of one’s deepest wisdom. Singers may also find Larimar a wonderful talisman for enhancing and protecting the voice.

Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate. It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships.

Larimar is particularly helpful for cartilage and throat conditions, and dissolves blockages of the head, neck and chest. It may also be laid on constricted joints or arteries.

As a reflexology tool, Larimar opens the acupressure/acupuncture meridians at the feet allowing for the recognition of which painful spots lead to which areas of the body in order to remove and clear the disease.

Larimar is used to enhance alternative treatments, particularly those involving heat, light, and water. It is an antidote to emotional extremes and helps ameliorate bipolar disorders.

Larimar relieves high blood pressure and stress-related illnesses, and may alleviate excessive Fire element energy such as infection, fever and inflammation. It may also be used to treat skin disorders aggravated by stress, such as hives, rashes, eczema and psoriasis.

Larimar is a stone of tremendous benefit to the Throat Chakra, opening the way for clear communication and the ability to speak openly from the heart.

The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.

The Crystal of the Day Sunday 15 September 2013 is Ammonite. Ammonite is fossilised ammonite that has been compressed under great pressure beneath the ground, which is what gives it its wonderful colors. Ammonite is said to radiate positive Earth energy, and to bring good luck and prosperity. It is also said to grant miracles. Ammonite is excellent as a tool for deep meditation. Ammonite is also used mystically for general good health, stamina and high energy.

In ancient Egypt, this fossil is named for the Egyptian god Ammon, because their shape resembles his ram horns. Ammonite was prized by the ancient Egyptian and Roman societies and likely many other cultures the ammonite was seen as a symbol of almost any diety was was connected the the cureved horns of the ram. For this reason they were considered sacred in Ethiopia. The natives of this regioin wore the ammonite primiarly to assist with prophetic dreams, but also it is said to grant deep meditation.

Fossils including not simply ammonite, but snake stone, witch stone and sponge are all negative impressions or remains of ancient creatures and plants that disapated from the earth millions of years ago, and eons of time have turned them into stone. Since these creatures were once alive, they are linked with the fifth element, Akasha.

Fossils represent time, eternity, evolution. In general they are used as protective objects, worn in jewelry to increase your natural defenses. Fossils of all kinds are worn as amulets to increase life span, due to their lineage.

Ammonites were known in the Middle Ages as draconites, due to their spiral appearance they were believed to come from the head of dragons, and were often bound to the left arm for magical projection. In more recent times in Britain they were called snake stones.

Ammonite is used in finding your way down the spiritual spiral path to the center where the God and Goddess await, as well as past-life meditations.

It is told that these ‘stones’ radiate positive Earth energy, and to bring good luck as well as general prosperity.

Ammonite helps to dispel chaos and turns negative energy into smooth, flowing energy especially 1st, or Root/Base Chakra. Ammonites are often used for activating Kundalini and life path energies, especially due to the spiral shape, similar to the coil of the Kundalini energy.
