Rock of the Month: Malachite
Malachite is found abundantly in Zambia, Romania, Middle East, Russia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Malachite is a copper carbonate mineral, giving it its various shades of greens. Malachite is a very powerful healing mineral, affecting a variety of dis-ease. Because malachite has such a high content of copper, it is beneficial for helping arthritis, fractures, swollen joints, growths, vertigo, tumors and optic nerve; it also strengthens our liver, pancreas, spleen and enhances our immune system. It is beneficial for birth, balancing the sexual organs and diabetes.
When malachite is used in healing, one can see the exact cause of the dis-ease. Malachite also picks up radiation plutonium and environmental toxicity. It is very beneficial when used in a healing crystal array for helping to heal Fukushima or other areas with high radiation output. The planet and everything on it is going through a DNA change right now; this can cause symptoms of cold, flu, headaches, muscle cramps and dizziness. Malachite aligns our DNA with our cellular structure, helping to alleviate these symptoms. The earth and everything on it is changing -- mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally; malachite is also a good stone for helping us adjust through all types of change.
Malachite is an excellent stone to use in the spring because it helps us with all types of transformation; transforming from winter to spring, preparing us for the blooming of our manifestations during spring and summer. Malachite aids us with transitions and risk taking. Its green blue ray opens the heart and throat chakras, creating clearer communication through the unconditional love and compassion of our hearts; clearing negative energy and lightening our hearts.
Here's a fun way to use malachite in a guided meditation. Prepare for meditation; hold the malachite in your hand. Close your eyes and become aware of your breathing; don't change it, just become aware of it. Now, think about one thing you want to manifest this spring or anytime this year; feel it or picture it, as if it were actually occurring. Continue to feel the excitement and joy in that moment, as you feel and see yourself with your goal accomplished, for 15 minutes.
Now, visualize and feel a very special box appearing in front of you. The box can be decorated however you desire. In this special box you are going to place all of your feelings, intentions and images of your goal. Once you have done this, close the box. Now, because it is spring and we have all these new birthing energies -- the earth, fairies and elementals waking up -- we can use these powerful energies to aid us in manifesting. Ask Mother Earth, all your angels, archangels and the fairies to bless the growth of your blooming manifestations.
Then see yourself burying your special box in the earth. Thank the earth for blessing your creation and manifestations. The malachite is now programmed to help you obtain your desires. Carrying the malachite with you for 30 days will help make any transitions smoother and help you see the steps needed for manifesting your desires. Have fun!
