Crystal of the Month, May 2011- EmeraldsMay 1, 2011 1 Comment
The emerald is considered to be the stone of successful love. It is a power stone, is green in color and the birthstone of the month of May. It is said to bring security in love. It allows our deepest secrets to come to the surface, be healed, and bring forth our heart’s truest desires. It is often chosen as a wedding stone and helps couples through relationship challenges, promoting partnership and domestic bliss, fidelity, monogamy and honesty.
The emerald is also considered to be a stone of prophecy and soothes the troubled mind. It enhances focus and helps to overcome challenges. It is good to keep in your work space to increase clarity and make sound decisions as well as creating abundance.
The emerald is associated with Archangel Raphael, the archangel of healing, and is an excellent, all purpose, general healing stone. It is good for use in all healing professions and is especially helpful for healers who take on the ailments of others in their practice or who forget to take care of themselves.
Being empathic, I have oftentimes taken on the ailments of others by forgetting to shield myself. When I originally became enamored with emeralds, it was for their purpose in love, but I think now, I will also carry them with me when I am healing others, both for their general healing powers and for protecting myself.
I have read that emeralds are most powerful in springtime.Emeralds
