Few can resist the enchanting roar of the ocean, the feeling of coming home to a place we have never been and connecting with a powerful supernatural healing energy. Through this hypnotic ocean call, we feel a connection to a power greater than ourselves, our source, our God and universal spirit. What better way to keep thoughts of water therapy alive than with the beautiful seawater colour of Aquamarine.
Aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March. Its name is derived from the Latin word for seawater. It represents all emotions that we equate with being at the sea – purity, exhilaration, relaxation and letting go. This stone is all about reaching into the depth of your soul. Deepening your spirituality, deepening your meditations and deepening your connection with source.
Aquamarine is a “Stone of Courage and Protection”. It can be used to promote verbal self-expression, enhance spiritual communication and clear communication blocks. It is also used to align all of the chakras and enhance the aura.
Aquamarine encourages clarity of thought. It allows one to look at emotional situations from other perspectives. It can help overcome the judgment of others and encourage tolerance. Aquamarine calms fear and worry, by opening the mind up to understanding the nature of Divine Perfection in the Universe and by helping one to be more sensitive and in tune.
Aquamarine can also work with the Heart Chakra by helping one to realize their innermost truth. Aquamarine facilitates the releasing of old patterns of behaviour that no longer serve, and that actually inhibit one’s growth. It can also bring peace and calm to the overactive mind, making it a great aid for deepening meditative states. Meditating with this gemstone can bring new insights from the higher self to be applied in daily life.
Physically, Aquamarine helps to heal ailments of the throat, including the thyroid and pituitary, and can help to ameliorate diseases of the liver. It can also help with allergies by calming an overactive immune system, as well as assisting with other autoimmune disorders.
