Carnelian was the favourite healing stone of the ancient Egyptians and was revered and used for its ability to energize and maintain vitality by many other ancient cultures. It can energise any part of your life and by doing so, it activates your creativity and gives you both physical and mental strength to move forward. Particularly useful for daydreamers, it grounds them in the present reality and makes things happen in the real world. Providing protection against the negative sentiments such as resentment, envy and rage, it can shield the person from other people’s jealousy, calming also the anger and replacing it with love for life. At a subtle level, the vibrant red/orange Carnelian activates the base and sacral chakras freeing up the blockages and releasing the energy needed for action. At a psychological level it helps to understand and to accept the cycle of life, gives enormous courage and assists in making positive life choices. At a mental level Carnelian improves analytic abilities and clarifies perception, sharpening concentration and chasing mental lethargy away.
Red Poppy Jasper has also been credited for its power to energize and to get things moving – quickly or gently, providing motivation and encouraging cooperation instead of competition. It helps to understand the value of timing and prevents impulsive and reckless action where necessary. Protective Fire Agate reacts on the level of the base chakra as well, calming and grounding your energy, helping you to manifest your ideas in the physical world.
