May is the month of Emerald!
Emeralds have been called the “Stone of Successful Love,” opening and nurturing the heart and the Heart Chakra. Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love, making it the perfect gift to give on an anniversary or wedding. Emerald promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for providing domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty. It was dedicated in the ancient world to the goddess Venus for its ability to insure security in love.
Emeralds are a stone of great and rich beauty. Full of deep and unconditional power, it brings the wearer a beauty unlike no other gem. The deep and calming green can bring powerful emotions to the heart and open up a world of love to a closed off heart.
Although Emerald is also a stone of great vision and intuition, associated with the eyes and sight, long believed to foretell future events and reveal one’s truths. We at Vandera Stuff believe that this in combination with its power to bring long-lasting love, makes this stone a perfect heart protection stone while opening yourself up to all the possibilities that come your way. Use this stone to open your heart, while thinking wisely about your wants, needs, and emotions, being aware of yourself and present in the current events of your life.
Emerald is a stone of wisdom, enhancing memory and increasing mental clarity. It combines intelligence with discernment, and brings to the conscious mind what is unconsciously known. Emerald also increases focus and intent, activating psychic abilities and opening clairvoyance. For meditation, it is excellent to use with rhythmic breathing. Emerald is also used to remove barriers to spiritual growth and thus raise consciousness.
