One of the best stones for a crisis, Garnet is helpful when life becomes fragmented, and there seems to be “no way out.” Garnet is a stone that activates the crown and root chakra, clearing out negativity, and allowing the heat of the passionate Kundalinienergy to flow freely, bridging all the chakras between the root and the crown. This infusion of passion will help convert that which is seemingly impossible to a challenge to be faced, infusing the wearer with a fortified survival instinct, bringing courage and power.
Garnet’s ability to help raise the fire of the Kundalini energy makes it a great aid for sexual potency but because the Garnet helps make that fire balanced with the crown chakra it is a great stone for commitment. Wear Garnet close to bring new passion and commitment to your relationships. Use a red bag with rose hips and Garnet to attract love.
Perhaps because of this balance of commitment and passion Garnet has the ability to aid in your perceptions of yourself, helping you to let go of old patterns and ingrained habits. It aids in letting go of taboos or self limiting thoughts, and bestows self confidence.
Garnet is said to be able to warn of coming dangers, and has been used as a sacred stone by Native Americans of both continents including the Aztec and Mayans, and also by African tribal elders. It is often used in magic to symbolize the element of Fire.
Wearing of Garnet in contact with the skin is said to help with the assimilation of vitamins and minerals, and is helpful in healing ailments of the blood, heart, spinal fluid and bone, as well as having a regenerating effect on our DNA.
Garnet vibrates with the musical note D. Use of a tuning fork, singing bowl or musical instruments with the D note will enhance the effects of Garnet, and help energize the stone.
