The beauty with gem stones is that effects are certainly tangible, but can’t physically harm you unless you dropped a heavy box of them on your toes.

If you know this and wearing you crystal healing jewelry from that point of view, you may quickly discover that dropping a certain pattern you do is going to help you be happier. An example of this is stopping to be mad when someone walks with muddy shoes on you newly washed floor. Changing your attitude and approach can help others see the benefit of removing muddy shoes in the house… it is a life long learning. And if you choose to not react but instead respond consciously, you have saved yourself some grief and stress. Others have the same capability to learn new thing as you yourself. Perhaps the best crystals to use in having patience with other people’s learning is Petrified Wood which helps us to become more patient, or Green Aventurine to help balance our own emotions.

Stone Healing with Red Garnet

Stone healing and strong emotion may be a combination you never thought of, if you consider yourself as a patient person. Patience and a strong fiery attitude (anger) are polar opposites! In fact patience is the remedy for ‘negative’ inner fire like anger, irritation and rage. ‘Negative’ patience, however, leads to stagnation and lack of initiative.

Use stone healing to remedy too much inactivity such as

depression and lethargy with a fiery energy stone like red garnet.

Depressive states debilitate many people, medication might help to control and cover it up, but it rarely heals the source of it. Think of the potential of stone healing we have to correct these inner states, and be happy. It really starts with you and me.

Stone Healing guided by the Moon…

We can use the moon to guide us in the right directions, as each day during the lunar cycle shows ascending and descending elemental energies. Stone healing with the 28 crystals in the circular Moon Mandala is described in The Crystal Lotus Handbook.  The Moon Mandala is a stone healing device as each day of the lunar cycle shows a specific mix of energetic influence represented by a crystal. At the full moon, the sun and the moon are opposing each other the most. This creates more intensity and drama where stone healing might help.

We are much more affected by the moon energies than we may think. The full moon aggravates any instability we have within, and more crimes of passion are committed during a full moon. We can use these varying energy influences to our benefit by carefully tune in to them. Stone healing with Garnet embodies the fiery fire and positioned at moon day 10 just before the full moon. This is a critical time where anger might resurface faster.

How to begin stone healing for depression and anger?

Of course if you under the care of a health care professional, you might already have excellent care for your situation without stone healing, but I am suggesting an alternative and complementary practice that may aid anyone who is willing to try it. Stone healing is a contemplative way of addressing our inner phenomena. It has helped me a great deal with my anger and depression. I will share what I did during a vulnerable phase on my own healing journey with stone healing a few years ago:

I begin my stone healing meditation by finding a place of privacy. As I sit in meditation with my garnet sphere tucked close to my heart, I feel it grounds me and help me express whatever feelings come up. I sit in silence for a long while being one with my stone as an anchor for the divine. Later maybe I journal my thoughts, as this relieves tensions. My stone healing meditation helps me, and I feel supported. Afterwards I always come to some new realization, such as when I own my feelings and reactions. The result is that I take my own power back. Right now this is what I truly need. I am grateful.
