CLARITY – PROTECTION – BALANCE
When I started working with crystals, I noticed that I started to become slightly detached from material things as I focussed on my upper chakras. I felt as if meditating on my problems and channelling energy into my lofty spiritual journey was going to make everything seem so clear. It is ironic that it tends to have the opposite effect. As we tend to move ourselves closer to knowing our internal self, we let go of our material self and everything gets thrown out of whack like playing on a seesaw with your sibling…we both know it isn’t balanced. We are material beings with notions of the spiritual and it is healthy to still embrace and foster our earthly side. Stones such as Hematite or a new addition Sphalerite are all about creating that balance in order to see things clearly as they are right here and now in the present helping us to protect ourselves in the future. Sphalerite is a very intriguing stone with an incredibly unique shape. Its interesting facets draw us in and keep us grounded.
