Chrysocolla unbottles emotions that block the mind from thinking clearly, and it stimulates feelings of balance and wholeness. It also helps men to show their vulnerable feelings. It’s a great aid in recovery from violence by partners of either sex.
Chrysocolla Esoteric Healing
Chrysocolla healing properties are very powerful when it comes to opening and stimulating the Throat Chakra, allowing us to channel our knowledge of the heart to others.
Chrysocolla channels clear communication of our innate inner wisdom, and it even helps with discerning what that wisdom may be.
The surprise of hearing oneself speak aloud a thought more profound than what one had in mind demonstrates Chrysocolla’s gift of expression.
The throat chakra is the voice of the body, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed.
If the throat chakra is blocked or misbalanced, it can affect the health of the other chakras too. When the throat chakra is balanced, it allows for the easy expression of what we think and feel.
We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions when the throat chakra is in balance. An opened throat chakra helps us bring our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit.
The energy that flows upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.
Another one of the Chrysocolla healing properties we love is how it aligns with the Heart Chakra.
Chrysocolla calms and helps ease emotional heartache, providing strength and balance, and increasing our capacity to love.
The heart chakra regulates our interaction with the external world and our emotional boundaries, and it controls what we embrace and what we resist. The heart chakra provides us with the balancing ability to be ourselves within our environment.
When the heart chakra is out of whack, we feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and we become critical of flaws in others. We easily find ourselves having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli (overreactions).
Chrysocolla’s healing energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the heart chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly.
With the help of Chrysocolla healing properties, we can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes with ease and grace.
Chrysocolla Care Routine
Chrysocolla should have its energies cleansed once every 12 days by rinsing it under warm running water, and then placing it in a bowl overnight with a piece of genuine hematite to recharge it.
Since Chrysocolla is 2.5 - 3.5 on Mohs scale hardness, you should keep it on a soft and velvety background. When being transported, it would be best to be kept in a jewelry box, or singled out in order not to receive damage from other stones.
You can also cleanse Chrysocolla by holding it over the smoke of a smudge stick, and by treating it to Reiki while holding it between your palms.
Chrysocolla won’t mind being in the moonlight, so you can leave it on a window sill to bathe in moonshine as well.
If we want to strengthen the loving communication between us and the people we love, we should place a piece of Chrysocolla on our throat chakra or our breastbone.
Wearing a Chrysocolla necklace is a great option that can cover both of these placements.
If you opt for a more magical approach, you can put Chrysocolla over the photo of people whose communication and harmony you want to improve.
By placing Chrysocolla on your night stand you can improve your dreams, expel insomnia, and attract lucid dreams.
If there is a certain planetary aspect you desire to heal within your natal chart, you can print out your chart wheel and then circle the challenging aspect you wish to appease. Then simply place a couple small pieces of Chrysocolla, or one big piece of Chrysocolla, directly on it and leave it in an undisturbed place.
Some of the stones that work in perfect harmony with Chrysocolla are blue and green-hued stones that flow with water energy.
