The late Casey Kasem used to end his radio show with, "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars." This is what I heard as soon as I held this African Bloodstone and it describes it perfectly!
This is a unique combination stone (Clear Chalcedony (Var.Quartz), Bloodstone (a dark to medium green chalcedony) and Pyrite) that brings a brightness and sparkle into anyones day and a feeling of happiness into any heart!
While this works very well with the lower chakras, I feel a lot of Heart space energy coming from this stone. African Bloodstone would be very beneficial when dealing with physical and emotional issues. It helps to soothe feelings of loss, loneliness and grief, as well as ease fear and uncertainty.
African Bloodstone moves out any dense energies within a space/place or person and fills the void with positive energy. It will bring light into the dark. It releases negative thought. African Bloodstone soothes the energy of chaos, discord and confusion, helping to ground and center the energies, making it much easier for decisions to be made or actions taken.
Work with African Bloodstone to "Be the sparkle that you are". It encourages you to step out of your comfort/safety zone and open yourself to new experiences and life lessons. It will not push you off the cliff, but will metaphorically take your hand and walk each step with you.
Physically, I feel that African Bloodstone will help to cleanse/remove toxins from the body. It can also strengthen and/or balance the immune system. It can help to break up blockages, clean, clear and align all chakras. This is a multitasking healing tool that no one should be without.
Bloodstone is another Chalcedony, and is, therefore, a variety of Quartz. This crystal balances and renews all of the bodies--especially when the energies around you are realigning, bringing order to chaos. It also helps control the stress and anxiety that can run rampant at such times.
Bloodstone is a crystal of courage. It is a really good healing crystal, too. It both centers and grounds the Heart Chakra and aligns all of the Chakras with each other. It provides balance to us in the midst of turmoil as we grow spiritually. Change produces turmoil, almost without exception!
