Aventurine - Blue
Blue Aventurine is a gentle stone that resonates from the mind to the heart, working calmly, rationally, and steadily. It enhances the masculine energy, and is a stone of self-discipline and inner strength. It assists us in making clear decisions and sticking by them. It helps calm fiery emotions, allowing us to be less affected by external influences and be more in control and at peace within ourselves. It asks us to take full responsibility for our lives, relationships, and experiences while empowering us to change when the current reality isn’t working.
In the workplace, it’s a stone of leadership and helps to earn respect. It assists in approaching new projects calmly and confidently, and supports calm, focused performance in competitions, musical events, or public speaking. It is an ideal ally for teachers or managers, encouraging vision, inspiration, and effective communication.
Blue Aventurine can be used to help overcome selfishness, childishness, and passive-aggression. It's helpful to those who find themselves stuck in an immature state of development by clearing stagnant energies, and opening one up to inner growth and spiritual work. It’s also highly beneficial in overcoming self-harming habits, such as smoking, overeating, and substance abuse. It also has undercurrents of adventure.
By clearing the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, it allows us to perceive our spiritual gifts and attune to guidance from the higher realms, an increase in psychic and intuitive abilities, empathetically "read" others, or a potential for receiving information from the Akashic record. Whether it is used in meditation, dreamwork, or simply kept in close proximity, Blue Aventurine provides the inner strength to explore these possibilities and the patience to see it through.
Physically, Blue Aventurine eases pain and chronic stiffness. It calms hyperactivity, and is beneficial in overcoming insomnia, migraines and headaches, and aids eyesight. Blue Aventurine is useful in balancing hormones, and supports healthy blood, and blood oxygenation. It reinforces venous and arterial walls, and is thought to strengthen the respiratory and circulatory systems of “blue babies.”
