The Metaphysical and Healing Properties of Larimar
Like many other blue stones, Larimar is a stone that calls forth the calming peaceful energy of the Water element. This particular blue stone is quite exceptional to behold with its array of blues, greens and whites. It grows in tiny pointed crystals that have fused together to make the whole. It is a somewhat delicate stone with a hardness of only 4.5 to 5 owing to its composition of the silicate mineral Pectolite. This delicate nature is indicative of the stones energies as well. Not only do the metaphysical properties of larimar soothe the user by releasing tension and anxiety, but they solidify the bonds with goddess energies and feminine power. Goddess energies promote intuition and wisdom, dissolves judgement and connects us to our source through nature. Feminine energies are all those that we attribute to mothers. They are nurturing, patient and endlessly loving and all of these traits are enhanced within us through the use of Larimar. Larimar is a stone of the Throat chakra giving us the courage and conviction to speak with a clear voice from deep within our souls. This power allows us to communicate the truth of the universe and our spiritual path to others. Larimar is created through the hardening of Basaltic lava producing the energy of the Fire element and providing a balance to the traits of the Water element energies making Larimar a unique stone. This balancing act allows to the stone to promote all the best qualities of each element while tempering the traits that can surface in less positive ways if not channeled properly. As always, meditation with any stone can enhance its effects. A simple way to really focus the energy on the aspects you are working on, is to imagine the energy of the stone entering your body and flowing through you and back into the stone. Always finish with an affirmation of intent, for example: I am the embodiment of the divine goddess. Affirmations should always be stated as a current fact, not a hope for the future. We don’t hope to embody the divine goddess, we already do. We are simply calling the energy from the stone to enhance this area and reminding ourselves that we already are all that we want to be.
