Healing Properties of Pyrite
Spiritual: Pyrite is a stone for self-realization and the quest for enlightenment in this life. It asks us to take action for our spiritual ideals and to live with great integrity. It offers us gifts of strength and will-power to overcome struggles. Pyrite balances polarities and reveals to us our Light and Dark sides so that they can be accepted and integrated. It is also a fantastic stone for attracting abundance and prosperity on all levels. Pyrite is attuned to the Solar Plexus Chakra and linked to the astrological sign of Leo. It is connected to the elements of Earth and vibrates to the number 9.
Emotional: Pyrite evokes courage and strength in order to face our emotional demons and release any negative energy, particularly fear, that is caught in our emotional bodies. It is a protective stone whose primary purpose is to help us gain a more joyful and fulfilling life. Pyrite increases self-confidence and encourages us to be more extroverted and social. Its happy and energetic vibration teaches us to love with everything in us, both giving and receiving with equal pleasure.
Mental: Pyrite helps to reveal the reason why situations develop and what we can do about them. It encourages us to be willing to take more initiative and ownership over our lives. Pyrite also reveals hidden memories trapped in our subconsciousness and brings them to the surface so that we can properly assess them. This stone has a very soothing energy for the mind, promising us that we are safe and fully capable of handling anything that life throws at us.
Physical: Pyrite is recommended for general physical vitality and good health. It encourages us to maintain a heathy environment around us and a positive mindset within us. Pyrite helps us to pay closer attention to pollution in our environment, such as second-hand smoke, mold, or other issues and to act sensibly to mitigate the risks. Pyrite is a powerful talisman when we are dealing with mystery illnesses which don’t lend themselves to an easy diagnosis. Pyrite helps us to distinguish between casual symptoms and the root problem and to communicate this effectively with our healthcare providers. For women, it can be especially helpful for diagnosing and treating endometriosis. For men, it can be helpful for understanding and healing male impotence.
