Garnet Jewelry for Teenagers

Garnet jewelry is one of the more attractive ways to help your teenagers during the big hormonal changes that they go though. The teenage brain is a literal soup of sometimes conflicting hormonal messages that makes them challenging to deal with, now you could try garnet jewelry.

How can Garnet Jewelry help?

I am talking about both girls and boys here. Garnet is a stimulating stonegarnet jewelry especially helpful to ground and vitalize the root chakra. When you travel though growth stages, grounding is necessary for staying sane at times, and as well to have some energy to wake up in the morning. Let’s explore the properties of garnet further:

Properties of Garnet Jewelry

Garnet is a ‘hot’ stone meaning it has strong fiery energy, and the elemental effect is that of fiery fire. It means that wearing garnet jewelry gives you stimulation and incentive to do things, go explore new ventures etc. Your teens may channel their hormonal chaos into something useful that they are passionate about. They may need some fire to burn up the excess chemical debris that naturally occurs.  There are three reasons to use garnet jewelry:

  • as a sign of power
  • as a decoration to beautify
  • as a healing tool

There are perhaps a few other reasons as well, but you get my point, if one wears garnet jewelry for all three reasons we can be assured that the process of healing is started. And that is our intention here: To assist people to feel good about themselves in a healthy way. Garnets also have restorative properties which are useful for healing chemical toxicity as well as stimulating the circulatory system. And the more mature user of garnet jewelry might find relief for arthritic pain or muscle pain due to its warming nature.

When you choose garnet jewelry as a gift for your teen: Keep in mind that style and design is important. Perhaps have them pick out the design themselves as long as it is garnet jewelry. Giving garnets is also a sign of love, and warm friendship, what better gift to give to your child.

How to use garnet jewelry for healing purposes?

Look to see what the main symptoms are. For example:

  • Lack of focus, spaced out or inattentive behavior might lead us to propose wearing garnet anklets or bracelets.
  • In the case of over excitement a heavier strand as a necklace might be called for to steer through and channel the energy productively.
  • And too much sleep, hopelessness and inactivity may call for a solid pendant on the heart chakra.

In any case do attempt evaluating garnet jewelry to help your teens and yourself to gain the proper understanding to navigate this critical time of their life. And you may also be familiar with the Greek myth of the goddess Persephone who was taken by Hades, the god of the underworld. But her father Zeus demanded her release. Hades loved her so much and wanted her back so he gifted her sweet pomegranates, knowing that she would return to him for more. So she spent part of the year with him. Here the sweetness of pomegranates symbolizes garnets. This legend gave rise to the Greek custom to give a garnet to someone you love for safe travel and return and as well to make sure that the bond of love would endure any hardships. Blessings,
