The Carnelian is the anchoring stone. It grounds you in the present reality and stabilizes your energy. It helps you come to terms with the cycles of life and eliminate the fear of death.
It is a great stone for restoring motivation in business and other matters, making positive life choices and promoting courage. The Carnelian also clarifies perception and helps you analyse and understand the underlying issues behind negative emotions.
This stone also cleanses other crystals around it, making it a must-have in your collection.
In essence, if you are looking to be grounded in the present reality and restore your love for life, the Carnelian is the stone for you.
How to cleanse
The Carnelian, like most crystals, should be cleansed periodically, especially since it cleanses all other crystals around it.
My best recommendation for cleansing your crystals is to do so with smoke. This could be from sage, Palo Santo wood or incense sticks. Allow the smoke to engulf your crystal and visualize its energy being renewed. After cleansing it, set your intention for your crystal by holding it in your hands and speaking your affirmation into it, specifically relating to grounding and positive perceptions.
The Carnelian is one of those crystals that did not catch my eye immediately. I am amazed by its properties, which is why I chose to pick it for you, but as soon as I touched it, I felt more and more attracted to it. I was simply mesmerized by it and I believe it is a crystal that everyone needs in their collection.
