Indigo Gabbro / Gabbro Jasper / Mystic Merlinite – (Root & Third Eye Chakra) – (Zodiac of Sagittarius)
Indigo Gabbro is known by many different names: Gabbro Jasper, Indigo Gabbro & Mystic Merlinite. (Note: regular “Merlinite” is something different.) It really is such a phenomenal stone to hold as it feels both expansive and grounding at the same time. I adore its combinations of purply-greys and black which remind me of the night sky. Use with care because it is powerful. You may want to have some Howlite on hand if you start getting overwhelmed by the Gabbro. Howlite will soothe you and release any excess energy build up.
Science – Gabbro is actually the most common rock on Earth and is found in the deep ocean crust. It is formed when the molten magma cools under the earth’s crust. It is made up of many different types of minerals (like olivine, pyroxene, and hypersthene), but is primarily feldspar (plagioclase).
Metaphysical Attributes – Gabbro is one of the very swiftest stones to helps awaken your intuitive and psychic abilities. It is also named Mystic Merlinite for its powerful ability to enhance magical abilities and ritual work. It helps to deepen meditation dramatically and allow you to fall into deep trance states. It quickly opens the entire chakra channel from Crown to Root, but its deepest resonance is with the Third Eye Chakra. This stone is intimately in tune with all Elemental energies, so if you are doing meditations and rituals that are Element based, Indigo Gabbro is a powerful catalyst. Sleep with Gabbro for vivid, prophetic dreaming.
Indigo Gabbro connects one to their Higher Self. It highlights areas in need of change in our lives to attain our fullest potential. This stone enables us to face and process our Shadow aspects without fear or judgement. Gabbro helps release outdated karmic contracts and soul beliefs that are acting as barriers to spiritual growth. It is extremely useful for past life healing, as it gathers “broken” or “denied” pieces of our soul and connects them back to our Higher Self for incorporation back into the whole and healing. This enables us to love ourselves completely as we are. Gabbro supports learning life lessons and to recognize the silver linings of past events.
Also, Gabbro is an incredibly grounding stone that allows us to channel the energy of the Earth to create a protective energetic shield. Because Indigo Gabbro has such a swift and powerful influence on the deepest parts of our Soul, it also provides this protection to ensure we are not influenced, attacked or lost during our meditations, rituals, dreams, and altered states of consciousness. Grid Gabbro around your home if you are feeling there are negative or unwanted spirits that may be attracted by the amount of energy work done in your home or ritual space.
Physical Effects – Said to assist with “hot flashes” and inflammations in the body. Good to bring down the swelling in sprained ankles and reduce bruising.
Practice Mantra – Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Gabbro in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine yourself surrounded by a dark, iridescent energy. Repeat this mantra, “I am Grounded. I am Protected. I am ready to Open up to the Expanse of Wisdom in the Universe.”
Alternately, hold a Gabbro mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
