Emerald is a Seeker Energizer Crystal. Seeker Energizers are fantastic energy conduits of the Universal Life Force that help us have the energy and determination to succeed in seeking new changes in our lives. In particular, Emerald is a seeker of love and an enhancer of domestic bliss and contentment.
It can also aid you in efforts to become more flexible, stronger, and to eat right. It is also used as a safety talisman, a talisman of profit, and as a personal talisman in long-term efforts to have financial security in old age.
Emerald is the purest crystal of the Green Ray. It is a “growth crystal” - a powerful conduit of the earth’s Life Force of birth, development and creation, and of the power of nature’s constant renewal. It is a potent aid in nurturing, whether of fledgling family relationships or a new business venture. Emerald is perfect for keeping a venture on course, a project on schedule, and life on track. Lighter Green crystals promote spiritual growth and renewed commitment to a higher purpose. Those of a darker hue are talismans of physical growth and strength, and safety in travel.
Emerald is the stone that most represents the energy patterns of the activated Heart Chakra, the wellspring of the emotions.
The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist, giving us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the Heart Chakra is out of balance we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. We may find ourselves having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli. Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the Heart Chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly. We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.
Emerald also stimulates the “high heart,” or transpersonal Love center just above and to the left of the Heart Chakra. It assists one in practicing compassion and respectful understanding of others.
Physical: Emerald imparts a wonderful rejuvenating quality, thought to combat aging and when placed appropriately, to re-vitalize tired organs. It is a strong healer of the physical heart, and may be useful in treating the lungs, liver, gall bladder, pancreas and kidneys, as well as the spine and muscle system. It aids recovery after infectious illness, and its powerful green ray can assist healing of malignant conditions.
Emotional: Emerald is a crystal of the heart, alleviating heaviness in the emotional field and nourishing the aura with an energy of hope, encouragement, gentleness and abundance. It heals heartbreak and gives the strength needed to overcome the misfortunes of life, clearing away negative patterns of victimization and loss of personal power by strengthening the physical and emotional heart centers. It is a stone of regeneration and recovery, bringing in freshness and vitality, love and compassion - for the self as well as for others.
Spiritual: A stone of aspiration and inspiration, Emerald opens the heart, clearing and strengthening one’s connection to Divine Love, and sustaining one in their spiritual journey. It encourages one to live and act from the heart, offering unconditional love and compassion in daily life and relationships, and to be open to receive love from others.
Emerald helps one to embrace and maintain the rhythmic breathing conducive to entering and attaining depth in the meditative state. Once achieved, it assists in maintaining the cool brilliance of deliberate reflection and emitting the radiance of light.
Emerald was the symbol of eternal life in Ancient Egypt. Wear or carry and emerald near your heart for attracting a lover, says Cassandra Eason in The New Crystal Bible. It is a stone of infinite patience says Judy Hall in The Crystal Bible. She notes it ensures spiritual equilibrium, and that it imparts mental clarity. In Love Is In The Earth, Melody tells us that Emerald is known as "the stone of successful love" and provides for domestic bliss. She also finds it helpful for removing negativity from life.
