Emerald Metaphysical Healing Properties Information: Due to its wonderful green colour Emerald is associated with love and works best through the Heart Chakra. Emeralds help you to open up your Heart Chakra so that you can more easily give and receive love. By doing this Emeralds encourage a stronger bonding between couples/people and help strengthen communication that allows you to express your feelings more easily. By opening up the Heart Chakra Emeralds allow you to have the courage to start to realize and then follow your own true path with a strengthened resolution that you are moving in the right direction. Emerald is considered to be a stone of prosperity and will help to attract abundance into your life. This is in all areas of your life not just from a money perspective, but abundance in all areas. Emeralds help to open up the heart and release any past hurts you are carrying both from this life and previous ones so that you can move forward with less hurt and a great calm and direction.
I love working with Emerald and it’s old wise penetrating energy, it is a stone that gets ‘straight to the heart of the matter’. I have found it particularly useful when working on past life clearing or healings to hold it over your knee area. This helps you to recognize and release the damaging blockages you are holding and become more open and flexible moving forward. Affirmation: My heart is open and clear and the universe provides in abundance.
