Crystal Meanings

Important: Please read first

before reviewing the meaning of the crystal mentioned below, we would like to make something clear:

Here at Spirit Warrior Shop, we understand that mainstream science has yet to “prove” that crystals have special properties for healing or personal/spiritual development. Keeping this in mind, we do our best to approach this idea with balance, healthy skepticism and discernment.

Amethyst

Amethyst is a protective crystal, and is a first choice of many Spirit Warriors. Amethyst was used in ancient times to recover from both physical addictions as well as addictive relationships, and became known as the “Stone of Sobriety”. A natural stress reliever, Amethyst can encourage inner strength.

The strong healing energy of Amethyst can transmute lower vibrations to higher frequencies, transforming negative energy to love energy.

 

Aragonite

Use Aragonite when working with the Root and Earth Star Chakras, and for grounding and connecting to the Earth. Aragonite acts as a stabilizing stone, and can be helpful for those who have focused solely on spiritual pursuits to the exclusion of other necessary tasks. Aragonite assists those who need to release issues from the past as well as attachments in the present.

Aragonite promotes focus and concentration, and can be helpful for students. Meditating with Aragonite can help to ground spiritual growth into the lower chakras, raising the overall vibration of the body. Many crystal lovers enjoy Aragonite’s centering energies, and work with it to help bring peace and serenity to volatile situations.

Aragonite calms, centers, stabilizes and increases the ability to remain patient, even in the most challenging of circumstances. It will enhance and encourage sensitivity and generosity. Aragonite can be an aid for those who lack discipline and self-control, and can help one to overcome stagnation in their personal growth.
