Bloodstone is a variety of quartz and is often found in masses of dark green with red speckles. Bloodstone is a powerful stone that helps us “be here now” by grounding our heart chakra and balancing our physical, mental and emotional bodies. It is known as the “stone of courage” and helps us release stress or anxiety by helping us accept that chaos can be beneficial before change.
It helps to enhance our creativity, talents, abilities, selflessness, idealism and healthy decision making.
Using bloodstone in meditation can deepen our connection and union with great spirit. It also enhances our abilities to communicate with the spirit realm. Carrying a piece of bloodstone in your pocket will help you recognize your own strengths and give you the courage to move easily through any situation.
