We often work with clients asking for crystals to help them with their issues. Sometimes there is more than one issue. These often require the energy of several stones. Here we share a crystal blessing of Calmness, Hope, and the Power of Determination.
Like our client, you may be frazzled with life pulling you in many directions. You may need an oasis from the world. You have worries about the future and they can weigh on your mind. Perhaps you also have things that are very important to you and you just need help getting them done.
This blessing uses three crystals. I will tell you a couple of them are getting hard to find. So, if you can find them (we have a few) I do suggest you get them as the supply lines to where they come from seem to be gone.
When in the midst of adversity, Iolite helps to provide solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems. It promotes a calm, positive state of mind, instills hope, and assists in decisions on how to proceed. It gives the emotional distance needed for a clearer perspective.
Ruby is an exquisite crystal that emanates the pure red ray with a vibrancy unsurpassed in the mineral kingdom. It actively stimulates the Base Chakra, increasing vitality and chi, the life-force energy, throughout the physical body, and into the spirit. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings a sense of power to the wearer, a self-confidence and determination that overcomes timidity and propels one toward prosperity and achievement.
We use a catalyst stone that brings in the healing power of the Moon goddess, Silver Banded Agate to assure the energies of the Iolite and Ruby are harmonious.
You will also need a glass of water, simple drinking water is fine.
Wash your stones in water. Do this well. Water should not damage Iolite, Ruby, or Silver Banded Agate.
Now, set up a sacred space or find a small white cloth and place it on a table. We suggest using a circle of Black Tourmalines to secure the space from evil and negativity. You can use as many as you want to create your circle. In the example above 8 are used but anywhere from 6 to 20 would be fine as well.
On the left side of the sacred space, place the Ruby and with a clear mind and focused intentions ask the Universe to focus the Chi, the Universal Life Force on your sacred space, and bring you clarity. Next place the Iolite to the right of the sacred space. As you do, ask the Universe to calm your mind and spirit. Now sit quietly for a few minutes.
Next, take the six Silver Banded Agates and form a line from the Ruby to the Iolite. As you place each one, ask the Universe, or if acceptable to you, ask the Goddess of the Moon to combine the confidence energies of the Ruby with the energy of calmness and hope of the Iolite. Do this slowly with great focus and clarity.
Now, drink the glass of water slowly and feel the Water elemental energy absorb the Life Force and bring the energy from the stones to your life and spirit.
The ritual is simple, but a powerful one. Repeat it often to gain a welcomed sense of peace, calmness, hope, and a renewed sense of determination.
