This oceanic blue-green beauty emanates the purity of the ocean and channels the relaxation of the sea. Aquamarine is a stone of courage and protection. Ancient seamen would wear and carry Aquamarine to protect them on long journeys across land and sea. Aquamarine is mainly a throat chakra crystal, as it promotes self-expression, clears communicative blocks and encourages clarity of thought. But Aquamarine also stimulates the heart chakra and invites one to look at any emotional situation from another perspective. Aquamarine helps one to realize their innermost truth, and powerfully generates energy from the heart to the throat chakra. This facilitates a release of any old behavioral patters that no longer serve us. Are you intrigued by this gentle and powerful beauty?

Aquamarine can create a very visual meditative experience. When you use Aquamarine while meditating, begin by holding it in your hand or lap, and then close your eyes and imagine yourself floating peacefully in the ocean. Begin to breathe in the soft water carrying you sweetly, embracing every part of your body with love and warmth. Allow yourself to feel the sun kissing your skin, and maybe you can even hear dolphins chirping happily in the distance. Allow yourself to feel safe and soft, and start to observe your breathing. Begin to slow down the rhythm of your breath, and feel your breath moving through you like a wave. Take at least 10 deep and slow cycles of breath this way, and enjoy the peaceful journey that Aquamarine will take you on. It’s a journey to inner peace, to a deeper connection, to beauty and serenity.
