Today’s crystal of the day is Green Calcite.
I’ve come across a lot of people in my years of working with stones, that display a healthy and respectable amount of skepticism to the world of crystal healing. I understand the arena is stuffed to the brim of woo-woo and barely digestible aesthetics and verbiage.
(I, myself, a seasoned and recovering woo-woo, have had a hard time with some of the books and teachers instructing about latent healing qualities of opalite and candy apple aura quartz. )
However! I have discovered something quite obvious in my investigations, studies and observations. We seem to be drawn to the stones that contain the mineral we are lacking. When we break it down to mineral content, it’s amazing to see the correspondences of how the stones work, distribute energy and what qualities they possess.
I like to use my beloved calcite as an example. When we pick up a piece of calcite, it feels so inherently calming and centering. It seems to gravitate to the parts of our body that are holding stress and anxiety and releases into them, allowing us to relax a little in times of stress.
Calcite is composed of Calcium. If you were to take a Calcium supplement, what would you be taking it for? We know it gives our bones strength, but, have you ever felt calcium? It’s so soft. It strengthens us by it’s softness. When we feel that the world is so harsh and challenging, we put on our energetic and physical coat of armor.
Unfortunately for us, this often times means that our muscles tense up, we resist what we’re offered and we are combative feeling like we need to protect ourselves. Like a lock with no key, we know how to put the armor on, but, taking it off isn’t as easy.
Calcite has the key. It reminds us of the great strength in softness. We can recharge ourselves if we can unwind. We can sleep if we can let go, but, when we’re all armor, we’re waiting for battle and our defenses weaken with our constant state of action.
Green Calcite in particular resonates with the heart. It reminds us of the gentle joy of loving as is. Green Calcite invites you to witness and participate in expressing your hearts joy. It sings to you of pasts and futures lining up to create your story, and reminds you that you’re in charge of the pen and perspective.
Let the Green Calcite nourish your heart and bring you to a place of peace. Allow it to remind you of your innocent joy and appreciation of your experience.
