Aragonite Metaphysical Healing Properties Information. Aragonite is a very grounding stone with a strong connection to the earth and earth energies. It is particularly useful if you work with the earth in a healing capacity or would like to feel more connected to the natural lines that surround you. It is an amazing stone that teaches patience and acceptance in yourself and the situation that you are currently in. It encourages practicality and discipline so that you can achieve all that you need to do in order to reach all the goals you have while at the same time remaining stable with your feet on the ground. It is a very calming and grounding stone, that assists to restore balance when everything feels out of control. It can fortify and strengthen you and opens you to a new vision.
Aragonite helps to enhance your concentration in a calming way and provides support to overcome any anger or stress that you are holding. Aragonite helps you to release any blockage that you are holding in order to move forward more productively – it allows you to achieve all you want and to ‘reach for the stars’ while keeping your feet firmly on the ground.
Working with Scolecite when you are feeling out of wack or balance brings through calm and stabilization straight away and allows you to look around from a different perspective, I find it a great stone to use during those ‘frantic’ times in ours live. Affirmation: My feet are firmly on the ground while I reach for the stars.
