Have you ever noticed how calm you feel when you are near the sea or the ocean? That feeling of calmness, increasing with each wave is one of the best sensations that I have experienced. I often find myself wanting to be as calm and as relaxed as I am when I visit the sea. However, in the busy life I lead, and I’m sure you lead a busy life too, it’s very hard to find your inner peace.
That’s why in the last few years, I was determined to find a way to restore my inner peace, even in the midst of everyday insanity. That’s how I discovered crystal healing and started to work with different crystals. And it worked! Although there are many different crystals that have a specific purpose, my all-time favorite crystal is Aquamarine. Not only was Aquamarine one of the first crystals I picked up to work with, but it’s also the crystal than helped me the most to restore my inner peace in my everyday life. That’s why today I will share with you the benefits of the beautiful aquamarine and everything you need to know about it!
What is Aquamarine?
Shimmering Aquamarine is a crystal that when discovered in its natural state looks mesmerizing. Because it’s part of a Beryl family of minerals, aquamarine is found in beautiful, symmetrical hexagonal shapes, with either a light, almost transparent blue color, or a deep rich blue color like the sea.
Formed into the deep layers of Mother Earth, most commonly around mountains, Aquamarine is formed when magma heats up mineral rocks called pegmatite. Its name comes from Latin, and it was named by Roman fishermen. When translated, Aquamarine means “water of the sea”. Throughout history, many civilizations have used Aquamarine as a protective or lucky charm.
What is the spiritual meaning of Aquamarine?
Today, Aquamarine is one of the most beloved crystals in the crystal healing world. If you find yourself attracted to this icy blue crystal, then it might mean that you are in need of restoring your inner peace.
Spiritually, Aquamarine possesses energy frequencies that restore calmness and tranquility to your soul. It is often said that aquamarine was named “water of the sea” because it embodies the calming effect water has on us, instilling us with a serenity that brings balance.
Aquamarine helps in realizing that sometimes your inner peace can be lost because you are trying too hard, pouring too much energy and force into pushing a door that says pull. The lesson that Aquamarine carries is that your power doesn’t always reside in how much energy you put out, but rather how much of your energy you can restore, and transform into drops that feed your inner peace.
The Benefits Of Aquamarine
When I began working with Aquamarine, I was positively surprised by how much it affected me both physically and spiritually. Often I struggled with thoughts of self-doubt that upset me so much that I struggled with decision making of any kind. Thought by thought, I kept doubting everything I did, every decision I made, and whenever I made a wrong decision I would end up in a negative pattern of self-blame and self-judgment. However, when I started working with Aquamarine, I discovered its healing benefits and felt its contagious calmness that instantly brought me to ease. Truly, the benefits of working with Aquamarine are countless, and here are some of them:
Balances the Throat Chakra
Aquamarine is a well-known crystal that connects and balances the Throat Chakra – the energy center in your body responsible for communication and expression. Expressing yourself to the world around you so that you can be understood and accepted by others is very important because it can help you connect better with true friends or even life partners.
When your Throat Chakra is out of balance, you may feel like you are unable to express yourself in public, constantly being misunderstood, or you may even develop a fear of speaking in public. Aquamarine is the perfect crystal to work on balancing your Throat Chakra because it can help you convey your truest self to the people you want to form a connection with.
I wholeheartedly recommend using a Natural Aquamarine Lotus Mala during your Throat Chakra balancing meditations, especially if you have difficulty speaking in public. By meditating with Aquamarine, you will not only express yourself better, but also you will discover a deep, calm, inner confidence that will allow you to speak clearly and truly.
Helps to acquire tolerance
One of the most common struggle these days is being overwhelmed by everyone’s opinions. And with the internet around, every post you make can be a cause for you to be judged, or to unconsciously judge other people.
That’s why using Aquamarine is the perfect crystal to cleanse these thoughts. Not only does Aquamarine restore your inner peace, but it can also help you to be more tolerant of other’s opinions and your opinions towards others.
Promotes calmness even in the most heated arguments
Aquamarine’s calming energy can bring calmness even in the most heated arguments. Its very nature will encourage you to be more compassionate and understanding towards others, which truly helps to resolve any arguments and issues that might occur. Wearing Aquamarine during a heated argument can help you to choose your words wisely, guiding you towards a solution, rather than more issues.
Helps understand emotional and thought patterns
Often, I left my emotions and thoughts out of check. Because I didn’t pay more attention to them, the occasional self-doubts grew into questioning every decision I made. The occasional anxiety and sadness soon grew into a constant state of uneasiness and irritation. However, when I started working with Aquamarine, although its energy calmed me down, something much more important happened.
I started to understand these patterns, and why they were occurring. By exploring my true self, and discovering the source of these negative thoughts and emotional patterns, day by day, I freed myself from them.
That’s because Aquamarine has a unique power to help you face your truest self, discover what disturbs your peace, and help you heal yourself. Through that process, your inner peace will be restored, and the real you will come out to the surface.
