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.
