We’ve talked a few times on our blog about stone medicine. Gemstones can benefit your spiritual practice as there are healing properties associated them. Carnelian stone medicine is one of my personal favorites. Courage, self esteem, creativity, and rebirth are all associated with Carnelian. This is an all around powerful manifestation tool and one to hold near and dear to your heart.

Carnelian stone medicine helps to restore the balance between the divine masculine and the divine feminine.

In ancient times carnelian was considered blessed with feminine energy and fertility. The masculine side of the stone was more active in its power, embracing the fiery energy of the new. The stone was there to stimulate love and passion between the two divines.

As the stone passed into the middle ages, it became the sign of alchemy, healing, and power.

Its properties aid in protecting against sickness and longevity of life. The word Carnelian itself means “flesh,” which seems fitting as it is a daily reminder that we are flesh and blood, and should make the most of being present on this Earth.

As a potent healing crystal, Carnelian heals the body, mind, and soul in one sweep.

Much like the cleansing properties of Selenite, this stone is one to keep with you at all times. Nowadays, carnelian aligns with one’s sociability, creativity, individuality, courage, happiness, and self esteem.

Hopefully this stone helps assist you in your healing journey.
