This is the continuation of an ongoing series of Gemstone Practices aimed toward achieving a goal or state of mind. I will add to these compilations as I review more stones.
These gemstones will help you Awaken and Strengthen your Intuition. But first… What is Intuition? It’s important to first understand what it is we’re trying to expand before we choose a gemstone. Intuition is our ability to sense, acknowledge, and trust our Inner voice. We access our Inner voice each day, but may not notice it, or actively ignore it. It’s also known as the “gut feeling” or instinct. Intuition can help us make decisions, inspire creativity, keep us safe, and to help others. It is the voice inside that just “knows” which decision is right for us, when to leave a place because you are feeling uncomfortable, has that great idea for a new book, and when a friend isn’t feeling well. If you aren’t familiar with your Inner knowing, don’t worry – It can always be nurtured and strengthened!
If you are feeling disconnected from your Intuition – Pick one of the gemstones listed below – whichever one calls to you the most. If you are unsure, click the link on the name of the stone to read the article about that particular gemstone. Once you have decided, follow the meditation instructions, and sit with the imagery and mantra associated with that gemstone.
Meditation Instruction – Sit in seated meditation. This can be in a chair, on a cushion, outside on the ground, or anyplace and position in which you can feel relax, but not fall asleep. Hold the gemstone in your less dominant hand – this is your energetic Receiving Hand. Notice the contact you make to the cushion or floor beneath you. Through this contact, know that you are completely grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies.
Amethyst – Place your attention on the center of your forehead, the Third Eye Chakra, and repeat these words. “I am protected as I open to Higher Wisdom.”
K2 Azurite – Imagine hands holding underneath you, supporting you as you sit in the stable palms of the Earth’s hands. Then imagine great, white wings expanding out from your head. Feel the support of both the Earth and the Divine as you open up to your Highest Potential. Repeat these words. “I can safely accept my limitless Spiritual abilities and unbound Wisdom.”
Angelite – Imagine a warm, bright light emanating from the sky and shining over you. Repeat these words. “I am calm. I am safe. I want to contact my Spirit Guides and awaken my Highest Abilities.”
Clear Quartz – Imagine a brilliant white light shining out from your Crown Chakra, the very top of your head. This light gently showers down upon you clearing any blocks and cleansing your entire energetic body. Repeat these words. “I am Clear. I am Open. I am ready to Receive and Grow.”
Lapis Lazuli – Imagine yourself surrounded by a bright blue light with golden shimmering edges. Repeat these words. “I am Open. I am Relaxed. I am ready to access Higher Awareness and Truth.”
Unakite – Imagine you are supported by a warm green light emanating from the Earth. A pink light emanates from your Heart. Repeat these words. “I am Supported. I am ready to open to Intuition and to Heal.”
Indigo Gabbro / Mystic Merlinite – 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.”
Apatite – Imagine a pale green light shining down on you from the sky. It feels cool and cleansing. Repeat this mantra, “I am Ready to Receive Wisdom. May I bring my Dreams into Reality.”
Prehnite – Imagine a pale green light shining down on you from the sky. It feels cool and cleansing. Repeat this mantra, “I am Calm and Relaxed. I am Ready to Connect with the Wisdom of the Universe.”
