Healing Properties of Emerald
Spiritual: Emerald encourages our spirit to grow! It helps us to surrender old visions of what “should be” and instead embrace the full potential of what “can be.” When used in meditation, Emerald can reveal conscious and subconscious beliefs that hold us back. When examined thoughtfully, these beliefs can soon be dismissed as utter nonsense and in their place new and more positive thoughts can take hold and grow. Emerald is particularly good for releasing scarcity thinking and instead cultivating abundance. Emerald connects us directly with the power of Divine Love and helps us to make choices that are life-affirming. It inspires us to be more compassionate and appreciative and to see the true beauty in everyone. Emerald is attuned to the Heart Chakra and linked to the astrological signs of Aries, Taurus, and Gemini. It is connected to the element of Water and vibrates to the number 4.
Emotional: Emerald is the stone of “successful love” and is an exceptionally good crystal ally for both committed partners and anyone searching for a long-term romantic relationship. It enhances cooperation, understanding and inter-dependence, allowing us to merge with others without losing our own sense of self. Emerald also teaches patience, helping us to overcome setbacks and misfortunes, and stay hopeful for the future. It keeps our heart young, and allows us to remember our friends and lovers as they were when we first met and to never let our love for them grow stale or jaded. Emerald encourages us to show love and concern for others without fear of being rejected or misunderstood.
Mental: Emerald provides us with a broad and sensible vision, helping us to see situations clearly and understand different perspectives, without negative judgement. It increases discernment and encourages intelligence, helping us to make the best choice possible based on the current information. Emerald encourages us to be goal-oriented and to not let fears of failure or unworthiness hold us back. It enhances memory and helps us to stay mentally focused and pro-active. Emerald is also a stone of justice, asking us to step up and fight for what is right and to protect the innocent and those who can not protect themselves. It encourages us to grow up and set aside any petty selfishness and instead act with nobility and strength.
Physical: Emerald is used by metaphysical healers to treat the eyes, sinuses, upper respiratory tract and the physical heart and liver. It is also believed to strengthen the immune system and help the body to recover from infectious diseases.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
