Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. Today it protects all who travel by, over, or near water, and opens the channels of clear and heartfelt communication.
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning “water of the sea,” and refers to its sparkling ocean-like color. The pale blue, transparent crystal is a member of the Beryl family. Its color, sometimes bluish green, is caused by iron oxides within the chemical makeup of the stone. Ancient seers considered it to be under the influence of the moon, an orb exerting very great magnetic influence, and used Aquamarine for forecasting events.
Aquamarine embodies all things connected to the sea, as well as those things relating to Heaven reflected on the surface of the water. It becomes a mirror, reflecting itself indefinitely, making it possible to discover hidden meanings of reality. As a stone of symmetries, it is conducive for meditation and revelation, a stone of prophets, shamans, healers, and mystics. It also allows us to explore the darkest depths of our souls, face to face with ourselves, and with others.
Aquamarine is perhaps the strongest stone of all gemstones for clearing and activating the Throat Chakra. It stimulates energy from the heart to the throat, allowing one’s deepest and heartfelt truth to be communicated. Aquamarine helps to overcome the fear of speaking, and is an excellent stone for teachers and presenters of all types. It relaxes speakers to a stage of consciousness in which they are fully aware of their own truths, wisdom and feelings, and able to articulate them with clarity and conviction. It also allows one to speak clearly and without anger in difficult situations.
Aquamarine accelerates the intellectual reasoning processes and enhances the ability for rapid response. It makes one unconquerable through learning, not only about the physical world, but about oneself. It bestows perseverance, discipline and lightheartedness.
Aquamarine encourages the ideal of service to the world and to the development of a humanity attuned to healing. It emits a gentle and compassionate energy, promoting moderation and responsibility for one’s actions. It inspires judgmental people to be more tolerant, and helps those overwhelmed by responsibility to find order.
A stone of natural justice, Aquamarine utilizes compromise and negotiation, and gives quiet courage and clear reasoned words in confrontational situations. (Typical uses would be situations such as: passing Aquamarine over any written complaints you receive or before you send any out; wearing or carrying Aquamarine when visiting your child’s school because of a complaint, or when resolving neighborhood disputes over parking or boundaries.)
As a love crystal, pale blue Aquamarine is said to encourage a lover to return, helps two people with different lifestyles to live together in harmony, and reduces the effects of sensitive issues that cause quarrels. Aquamarine is often given as a love token and increases commitment and fidelity “as long as the waters of the earth flow.”
Aquamarine is a stone of breath, the respiratory tract, and the lungs. It can heal sinus conditions and frequent coughing, and is effective for hay fever and other chronic allergies. It relieves colds and bronchitis.
Aquamarine is a cooling stone, countering infections and useful for laryngitis, strep throat or a sore throat. It harmonizes the pituitary and thyroid glands, regulating hormones and growth. It is beneficial for teeth and gum problems.
It supports the healing of inflammatory diseases of all kinds, and is soothing to eczema, hives, rosacea and psoriasis. It may also help prevent outbreaks of herpes. Some skin diseases caused by allergies may be cured by Aquamarine, and can complement the treatment for shingles.
Tired eyes and some vision problems can be relieved if Aquamarine is placed on the eyelids for 20 minutes every night. Placed on the solar plexus, it will calm nervous spasms.
Aquamarine is a Water element stone, powerful for cleansing the emotional body and opening communication. Its gentle energy brings emotional patterns to the surface and assists in understanding the reason for holding onto old thoughts or patterns that are limiting forward motion. It also identifies where ego is causing one to overreact, assume a victim/abuser role, manipulate others, or martyr oneself. By consciously releasing these patterns, it allows for better relationships, love and compassion.
Aquamarine helps balance excessive anger or fear, and clears past emotional, physical or verbal abuse. It is an excellent stone for children who have been through traumatic situations and are acting out aggressively or who have disassociated from their emotional bodies. It heals the effects of over-judgmental parents who set impossible standards, and panic attacks lingering from guilt and inadequacy into adulthood.
Aquamarine is useful for moving through transition and change, its cleansing energy removing resistance and helping one overcome fear of the unknown. It helps not only in the release of emotional baggage, but the clearing out of physical items and clutter.
Aquamarine is a stone of empowerment, for men and women alike. It helps in the realization that not all power comes from force. There is also power in aligning with the yielding, resilient vitality of life, and in promoting truthful and compassionate communication. It lends women the courage to express their inner knowing and enhances their intuitive abilities, and helps dispel the emotional numbness and difficulty men sometimes experience in communicating their feelings.
Finally, Aquamarine can be used as a gateway crystal to the Divine Feminine, both within the self, and in Her outer manifestations.
No single tree is as rich with scriptural references, spiritual myths and legends as the Rudraksha. Its beads have long been sought for their supposed medicinal and magical properties and this highly spiritual bead is a true treasure trove of benefits. The word Rudraksha is derived from the words Rudra (Shiva) and aksha (eyes) – it is said that once, when Lord Shiva went into meditation for a long time for the well-being of all living beings, upon waking from this state and opening his eyes, tears immediately fell from his eyes onto the ground. When they reached the ground, they took the form of Rudraksha seeds, from which the Rudraksha trees grow.
Ancient spiritual texts like the Shiv Purana and the Devi Bhagwatam are replete with the numerous therapeutic properties and the spiritual significance of these herbal beads. The various colours, shapes, sizes and the number of cuts (called mukhis – Rudraksha seeds range from 1 to 21 mukhi) determine the value of the beads. This helps to determine its significance in treating different ailments.
Wearing the sacred Rudraksha seeds is said to bring one to the alpha state of present-moment living.
