Healing Properties of Copper
Spiritual: Copper sparks our passion, giving us energy, focus, optimism, and an unwavering drive to create the life we most want to live. It helps us to manifest our dreams, not simply by thinking and wishing, but by actively going out and getting stuff done! It attracts good fortune and unique opportunities. When used in meditation, Copper amplifies our energy, both grounding it deep into the earth and sending it up into the astral realm. Copper is a fantastic energy conductor, and can be used to strengthen the connection between two individuals or between an individual and other healing stones. Copper is attuned to the Root and Sacral Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Taurus and Sagittarius. It is connected to the Elements of Earth and Fire, and vibrates to the number 1.
Emotional: Copper has an optimistic and active energy. It combats anxiety and depression, especially when related to fear about the future. Copper proclaims that we don’t need to seek out perfection in any form. It encourages us to avoid the emotionally helpless feeling that can come with seeking the “perfect” career path, or finding the “true love” society says we must have, or any other all-encompassing single focus. All of those things will come to us in time. Copper joyfully invites us to live in the moment! Now is the time to become a person we can truly like and admire, and to trust that in doing so, all good things will come our way.
Mental: Copper encourages us to move directly into action, rather than spending too much time thinking or waiting for the optimal moment. Copper teaches us that we make our own luck, and that a person of action seizes life and opportunities as they come. Yet it is also a stone for diplomacy. It helps to cut through any red tape, and get right to the heart of the matter, so that both parties can find a solution that will satisfy everyone’s needs. Copper encourages creativity and free thinking, and urges us to move beyond the obvious and into the daringly possible.
Physical: Copper is widely used to combat arthritis, rheumatism, and other forms of joint pain. It has also been used by metaphysical healers to treat the circulatory system and fight bacterial infections. It is said to stimulate the metabolic process and encourage wounds to heal faster.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
