In crystal healing, carnelian is a masculine yang stone full of powerful life force. It gives you that jolt you need to get things going in the right direction.
Carnelian is the top crystal used to open and balance your Sacral chakra. This chakra is your creative and sexual energy center that glows with the colour orange.
Orange is also associated with power. Place Carnelian over your Sacral Chakra and visualize a bright spinning orange vortex that brings you strength and power.
The Amazing Benefits of Carnelian
Carnelian grounds and anchors us in the present, stabilising us with high energy making it an excellent choice for restoring motivation.
On a psychological level, carnelian gives courage and promotes positive life choices, whilst dispelling apathy. Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any form, helping us to trust ourselves and our perceptions aiding us to get to the bottom of what makes us tick and helping to overcome past negative conditioned responses encouraging a more steadfast approach moving forwards.
Mentally, carnelian helps to remove extraneous thought patterns during meditation practices and helps to redirect daydreamer thoughts into reality by dispelling mental lethargy and sharpening concentration.
