Carnelian, the stone of action, activation and joy. And what better way is there to move ahead other than from a place of joy? Traditionally associated with the second chakra, Carnelian’s energies are empowering and uplifting at the same time. When we are ready to step out and let the road rise up to meet us, Carnelian’s energies will “en-courage” us and connect us to our inner motivation. This crystal can help you move out of your comfort zone and fulfill your commitments. This includes your commitment to honor yourself, to complete what is at hand or to shift gears towards your next level.
Tumbled Carnelians, readily available, may encompass swirls of darker grounding energies that imbue a sense of being rooted. The brighter orange hues usher in the joy and excitement we experience at the second chakra, helping us to bring our creative force into expression. Our beloved avatar, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, is so often seen wearing an orange robe, bringing joy and healing energies of unification to the planet. When feeling tired or listless, Carnelian delivers an energizing sense of purpose and direction, lifting the spirit and helping you to open up to new possibilities. Its energies are smooth, not jarring, and very pleasing.
So whether your focus is creation or procreation, Carnelian is comforting, motivating and very healing. It is an important member of your crystal collection.
