Colors are perceived on a very deep level which goes far beyond the simple mechanics of seeing. Colors are not simply constructs of mere physics, but are also capable of making us feel emotions. Color theorists and marketing executives have long known that some colors energize, while others radiate a sense of serenity. The colors we surround ourselves with can dramatically affect our thoughts, choices, and general mood. When selecting healing crystals the color itself should be consciously and carefully considered in addition to all the other aspects of the stone.
Black healing stones evoke grounding, protection, and a steady relaxing presence. They encourage us breathe deeply and stay calm. The color black can also relate to mysteries and shadows, encouraging us to look deep within ourselves and explore truth with unflinching honesty. Black minerals help us to feel safe and strong, and capable of feeling strong emotions without letting them completely overwhelm us. They also tend to have a “heavy” energy that can help us to stay grounded and practical, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. Black healing crystals calmly remind us that we are stronger than we think and have a great power inside of us to create a good life that brings us joy and peace.
