The Emerald Green Crystal is a symbol of youth, beauty, love, and is a divine connection that stirs the soul to the heart of spring, symbolizes hope, peace, prosperity, renewal, growth and hope for the future.
Emerald has been a fascinating gemstone for centuries in many different cultures around the world in ancient times. as it has been used as a breastplate for both Kings and Queens, it has been sold in the markets of Babylon as early as 4,000 B.C. It was also a stone worshipped by the Incas, believed by the Chaldeans to contain a goddess, and was very much highly regarded by all major religions for its spiritual power and beauty. Emerald was considered a symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt, a gift from the Egyptian God Thoth – the God of wisdom.
Emerald has been consider to be a stone of wisdom, a revealer of truth and knowledge, and to open up one’s intuition. The Emerald crystal also provides opening to Universal love and compassion to yourself, to the Universe and to other people.
This beautiful translucent green crystal is a constant source of inspiration of infinite patience to yourself – to find balance, harmony and understanding with your own emotional and mental clarity. It will help you find the right decisions and answers that are right for you. Emerald also promotes bliss, understanding between friends, balance and understanding between partners – and is particularly known to provide domestic bliss, contentment, loyalty and to soothe communication.
This Emerald Crystal was dedicated in the ancient world to the Roman goddess, Venus, (or the Greek counterpart – Aphrodite; both of these goddess irrespective of their mythologies were goddesses of love.) for its ability to insure the security in love – and as we all know – the many different forms of love.
As I have previously spoken about, the essence of compassion is to “co-suffer” or “suffer with” as it is translated in Latin. While we can’t change our past towards love, (and remember there are many different forms of love – platonic, family relations, friendships, romantic relationships, etc) We can make amends towards finding understanding within ourselves.
What I mean by this is to see ourselves through Divine love. There is no judgement, no bullying, no put downs. Just Divine love and unconditional love. Once again it isn’t about blaming others, blaming situations or issues, or more importantly blaming ourselves.
This is truly about moving forward, this is about seeking to find out what you really want and need in this point in time. The past has been a valued resource, but it doesn’t define us.
As we have just encounter a New Moon in Aries, we owe ourselves for this spiritual checkup. The Emerald Green crystal will help us all to open up to Divine love and light.
A New dawn has come. Rather than running away from it, it’s time to make important decisions towards your future. Use the Emerald Green Crystal to seek your own inner truth, as it reveal your own hidden truths within you.
Because when it all comes down to, is love. All you need is LOVE.
So in brief:
- Promotes divine love and compassion
- Assists in staying connected with the wisdom of the heart
- Deeply connects the heart chakra and assists in creating intimacy.
- Assists in letting go of old connections and superficial relationships
With love, and crystal blessings,
