Crystals & Gemstones for Empowerment
Empowerment is the cultivation of your ability to make your own choices in each moment, unhindered by past wounds or unconscious habits or patterns.
This form of power is internal and has nothing to do with control or dominance: it is instead about awareness, wisdom, and freedom from fear.
These gemstones help you find that place of power within yourself, where you are your own person, and have the capacity to live according to your own values.
Rather than just bring you joy, Alexandrite helps you develop your own source of joy within yourself. It facilitates an awareness of the beauty of every moment, and your power to choose and make the most of your life. It provides hope by means of awareness of the possibilities that are always available to you, no matter your circumstances.
Aquamarine cools anger and helps create a calm, centered, relaxed but alert state with balanced energy. It is a stone of the Divine Feminine–teaching a form of power that is yielding and yet resilient, and letting you speak your truth clearly from a place of inner knowing rather than reactivity.
Diamonds encourage stepping up and stepping into your true power to be a force for good in the world–that is, accepting and fulfilling your spiritual destiny. They encourage you to see, seek, and radiate the Light within yourself. They are intense stones! Note: Rough/natural diamond crystals are more effective for metaphysical work than cut diamonds (and a lot more affordable!).
Garnets help you turn your visions into physical reality. The six types of garnets help with different types and levels of manifestation. The most represented in jewelry is pyrope garnet. This type of garnet helps the wearer release guilt and shame, open to receiving love, and walk forward with a sense of clarity and self-worth.
Golden Obsidian (also called Gold Sheen Obsidian) activates the third chakra and aligns it with Divine will. This supercharges your ability to manifest and create success in the world. It can help in all issues related to the will, such as clearing the negative effects of abuse of power, clarifying your true motivations, and helping you express your gifts in the world.
Mahogany Obsidian is useful for clearing self-imposed blocks that lurk in your subconscious due to past harmful experiences. If you feel you are not expressing your full potential due to abuse or trauma in your own life, past lives, or your family lineage, wearing Mahogany Obsidian can help you release these limitations & move forward with renewed purpose.
Ruby is an activator of passion, confidence, determination, and adventure. It helps you develop courage and face your fears, moving through them and experiencing the renewed vitality on the other side. Stimulating enthusiasm, willingness to try new things, and the fortitude to see them through, ruby is a powerhouse of life-force energy.
