All About Aquamarine

The Healing Properties
The Aquamarine gemstone is a vital part of every modern mermaid's gemstone collection. Aquamarine belongs to the beryl family, which also includes emeralds. The Aquamarine gemstones are wildly popular because they contain the ancient powers of the mighty seven seas. These stones have evolved over millions of years and will bring their wearer comfort when they are experiencing unpleasant emotions.
Each Aquamarine gemstone embodies the spirits of every seafarer, sailor, and mythological mermaid, and shows their true colors in its various shades of blues and greens. Using the power of the seas, your Aquamarine gemstone can enhance feelings of peacefulness by enhancing your strength and bravery.
And, when you add some water and a little bit of sunlight, it can make your skin look young and vibrant at any age. All you have to do is cleanse your crystals with some warm, filtered water, making sure you get all of the dirt and any other loose particles off of the stones.
Then, once they're clean, put them in your favorite glass bowl and pour filtered water over the stones until they are all covered. Move the bowl, so it's sitting in direct sunlight, and let the gemstones absorb the tremendous power of the sun. You can also start the night before if it's a full moon and put your stones in the moonlight overnight, and then transition them to the sunrise in the morning.
You can also leave it outside for a full 24 hours, which will allow it to receive both full sunlight and moonlight energy. Once your gemstones have had enough time to soak up the power of the sun, you have beauty water that's infused and activated with all the healing properties of your Aquamarine gemstones.
Start every day with a splash of your healing water, and to get even more out of your new routine, say a few affirmations to go along with it. You can say things like, "I am powerful," "I am loved," I am enough," "I am beautiful," and so on.
You will be amazed at the impact this simple routine will have on your day.
Or, if you'd rather have your beauty water on the go, transfer the crystal-infused water to a spray bottle, which can be spritzed on the neck, throat, and face for a radiant glow whenever you need it.
When you run out of the water, simply refill the bow with filtered water, put it back in the sunlight, and you'll be good to go.
With your Aquamarine gemstones, you will restore the balance and tranquility that has been missing from your life with the ancient power of the world's oceans.
Cleanse and Activate Your Aquamarine Gemstone
All crystals magnify their surrounding energy, so you need to be sure to keep them clean and fully charged so they can work at their highest frequencies.
The best way to do that is to follow the traditions that the Native Americans have used for thousands of years. The best cleansing practice is a combination of sage and palo santo that's stored in an abalone shell.
The Native Americans believed that the abalone shell and sage combination helped connect the physical world with the spiritual realm. They also believed a water vessel like your Aquamarine stone should be separated from the fire element, so you should place a small amount of white sand in the abalone shell, which will help ash out burning sage and incense sticks while protecting its beauty from burn marks.
Meditate and Release Fears and Phobias With Aquamarine
Your Aquamarine stone also doubles as an excellent meditation tool. Meditate with it for twenty minutes or every day and allow it to inspire a sense of peacefulness, inner strength, and courage.
Your stone will have the power to absorb your worries and daily troubles and transform that negativity into positive thought patterns.
During one therapeutic session, place your Aquamarine gemstone on your breastbone or throat to encourage positive interactions with others. It will allow you to discover your true self, which will lead to an enhanced sense of self-worth, courage, self-love, and confidence.
During another therapeutic session, grab your aquamarine stone along with a smoky quartz crystal with a single-termination. Sit comfortably on the floor or in a chair in your meditation space and take a few deeps breaths, holding a crystal in each hand.
When you start to feel relaxed and centered, hold your Aquamarine stone on your chest, and allow its soothing energy to calm any and all of your fears. Then, bring the smoky quartz to your chest and visualize your fears and phobias fading away as its healing properties help bring you back down to Earth.
