Beguiling Garnet Gemstones
Are you feeling sluggish and disconnected to the present moment? It's a common problem we face, thanks to the demands of modern life, which forces us to think five steps ahead. As an essential tool in the constant battle to keep it all together, the Garnet crystal helps us feel grounded and connected to the present moment. If you're lacking in energy, it could be energy blockages within the body keeping you from your natural state of joy, passion, energy, health and overall vitality.
Featured in a range of red colors, a deeply vibrant and powerful vibration, each stone possesses a special beauty with shades ranging from ruby red and dark red to pink and orange hues. It’s rich luster and unique vibration gives us the strength to take charge of our lives and make a move in the direction of progress and reaching a higher state of consciousness. In other words, Garnet reminds us that actions speak louder than words, a wise saying that always rings true.
In ancient times . . .
The name ‘Garnet’ actually has its origins in Latin (Garanatus) which refers to something as being seed-like. Specifically, this refers to the similar color and appearance of the crystal to a pomegranate. If you ever cut open a pomegranate and look inside, you’ll see the striking resemblance to the Garnet crystal. Of course, the stone has other meanings besides simply resembling a fruit.
The Garnet crystal was also cherished by early medieval jewelers who incorporated the stone into everything from rings and brooches to buckles and necklaces. Even then, it was more than just a fashion statement but was thought of as a protective talisman against negative energy. Possessing a special beauty all their own, the Garnet crystal stone meaning is linked with the Heart Chakra, making this deep red gemstone a dark and intense contrast to other love-attracting stones like Jade and Rose Quartz.
Garnet Healing Stone
Garnet is considered a great crystal for removing negative energy, clearing energy from your chakras, and boosting the healing properties of other crystals. This stone may sharpen your perception, open your heart, improve confidence, and stimulate awareness. It is one of the best stones for manifesting abundance, bringing luck, love, and improving friendships. Soothing vibration of the stone will help you achieve your goals, boost motivation, prevent frustration, anger, and reject bad energy.
Meditate with Garnet
Meditate daily with Garnet and discover its divine energy that leads to a higher expression of love. Breathe in the positive energy of the universe and exhale out all the negativity weighing you down and keeping you from your full potential. When you feel your mind and body completely cleared of negative psychic debris, visualize an intention for your stone, whether it's to attract new love or find balance in a hectic world.
Sit quietly and let the Garnet stone take away your fears, worries, and anxieties while guiding you on a path to true enlightenment. With a renewed sense of balance and a re-energized Root Chakra, imagine the Garnet stone infusing you with its healing light tinged with red, the shade of blood and the color that symbolizes life itself.
