Am attending a breastfeeding workshop this week thru Saturday–so LOTS of talking, teaching, sharing and expanding. Will have to have my long silence next week, or when I lose my voice. (taking lots of essential oils and hot tea to keep my vocal cords and throat in a happy place)
Two things have leapt out at me to date this week-My Every Thought Is Attracting Its Vibrational Essence, on purpose or by default. Whether you are thinking about wanted things or unwanted things, you are still sending out a “request” to attract more things like the subject of your thought. That is pretty clear and terrifying that when I am having an internal dialog that is a rampage or re-hashing things that I wish had gone differently (even tho I know yesterday is gone and nothing can be done to change it….) Manifesting by default gives me pause. Have spent more time this week stopping the physical activity and happen to do doing when I catch myself thinking things I don’t really want. Re-playing that old, tired, useless tape; knowing know that physical postures and body positions are attached to thoughts and mental activity…. since I haven’t figured out how to have a brick fall on my head every time I think a negative thought, or one that is not part of my dharma, this will have to do and is a place to start to change what my thoughts are creating. (if only I could stay in my Sit all the time!)
I have spent the last three days with a friend and amazing woman that makes jewelry with beads and stones. I picked up a bracelet today that has Pyrite as part of the design–that lesson on one of the other blogs about Empaths made me look up the properties of Pyrite—-pretty amazing for what we are all doing, and no wonder I felt I NEEDED this bracelet for myself!
Legendary Uses and Meaning of Pyrite
Introduction to the Meaning and Uses of Pyrite
Pyrite is often called “Fool’s Gold,” though there is nothing foolish about this mineral. Within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire, one that can be sparked to life by striking it against metal or stone. An Earth element, it also resonates with Fire energy, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power. It is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion. [Eason, 180][Megemont, 150][Melody, 498][Simmons, 314-315][Ahsian, 315]
As a talisman, Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the Earth through the physical body and into the aura creating a defensive shield against negative energies, environmental pollutants, emotional attack and physical harm. It also supports one with a spirit of boldness and assertive action when protecting others, the planet, or in standing up for important issues of community. It stimulates the Second and Third Chakras, enhancing will power and the ability to see behind facades to what is real. [Melody, 497][Hall, 149][Simmons, 315][Ahsian, 315]
Pyrite guards against ongoing control, criticism and manipulation by a partner, parent or employer, lending the power to resist without becoming angry or upset, changing the balance of power. [Eason, 180]
A piece of Pyrite in the home or workplace energizes the area around it and imparts an immediate increase in vitality. It overcomes intellectual fatigue due to overwork and tiredness of the nervous system by stimulating blood flow to the brain, increasing mental clarity, focus and recall. [Hall, 149][Simmons, 314][Megemont, 151][Melody, 498]
Pyrite inspires creativity in art, mathematics, science, architecture and many disciplines, especially those that recognize the inherent perfection and harmonious symmetry of nature and the universe. It stirs the qualities of ambition, commitment and perseverance, and is an ideal stone for students. [Simmons, 315][Melody, 498]
In the workplace, Pyrite encourages leadership qualities and is an ally for managers and those working toward promotion. [Eason, 180]
Pyrite enhances the protective and assertive male energies in both men and women. It boosts women’s self-worth and helps overcome tendencies toward servitude and inferiority. For men, it instills a feeling of confidence in one’s masculinity and supports the enthusiastic expression of male eroticism. [Simmons, 315][Hall, 150]
Pyrite Healing Therapies – Overview
Pyrite Physical Healing Energy
Pyrite supports the ideal of perfect health and well-being, drawing on universal energies to activate the nourishing energies of the body. In healing it often gets fast results, and can be beneficial in cases where no resolution seems possible. It is known for bringing out the cause of diseases for examination, and is helpful in getting to the root of karmic and psychosomatic dis-ease. [Melody, 498][Hall, 150][Megemont, 151][Gienger, 72]
This mineral shields the body from environmental pollutants, as well as contagious diseases. It may be useful in fighting colds, flu and other viruses, skin diseases and fungal infections, and may be beneficial in treatments for highly infectious diseases. It has also been used to lessen fever and reduce inflammation, and is an excellent stone of protection for caregivers and medical workers. [Melody, 498][Eason, 180][Ahsian, 315]
Pyrite increases oxygen supply to the blood and strengthens the respiratory and circulatory systems. It is beneficial to the lungs, helping to alleviate asthma and bronchitis, and may be used in treating blood disorders. It assists in treatments of the bones, both in structure and cell formation, and helps prevent and repair DNA damage. [Melody, 498][Hall, 150][Eason, 180]
Pyrite also stimulates proper endocrine function and is excellent for combating male impotence and infertility. [Ahsian, 315]
Pyrite Emotional Healing Energy
Pyrite is a crystal of positive energy, and is extremely helpful for melancholy and thoughts fixed on misfortune and despair. It relieves anxiety and frustration, and as a mirror to the self, reveals the causes behind these emotions and promotes a search for solutions. Pyrite also allows one to see beyond pretense, to what truly lies behind words and actions. It provides the insight that often things that disturb us in others are also present in us. [Hall, 150][Gienger, 72-73]
Pyrite’s energy is empowering to the spirit, encouraging one to overcome fears and take action. It increases one’s will to accomplish whatever tasks one sets out to do, and can be used to bring one out of one’s shell, becoming more dynamic and confident. [Simmons, 315][Ahsian, 315]
Pyrite Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy
Pyrite is particularly stimulating to the Third, or Solar Plexus Chakra, the energy distribution center and the chakra of relationships. This chakra is located between the ribcage and navel, and controls the immune and digestive systems. When balanced physically, we have strength to fight infections, are free of allergic reactions, and are able to use the nutrients we ingest. When the Solar Plexus is out of balance spiritually, we feel fear – of the disappointment or displeasure of others, or to subordinating our life and pleasures to the will of others. Spiritually, when the solar plexus is in balance we are free to interpret the world through our own thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others.
Golden Pyrite also identifies with the Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra, located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body. It is the center of the Life Force of the body, and controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other “non-linear” communication comes from this chakra. When it is out of balance the symptoms manifest themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex, and frustration. When the Sacral Chakra is in balance one has grace, feels pleasure in life, and experiences the flexibility to “go with the flow” and do so in good spirit.
Pyrite Spiritual Energy
Pyrite is an excellent stone of manifestation, allowing one to draw high-frequency energy into the physical body and utilizing it to take action in creating abundance for one’s life. Its frequency stimulates the creative flow of ideas and concepts, and helps one embrace their innate abilities and potential. [Ahsian, 315][Hall, 149]
Pyrite Color Energy
Pyrite reflects the energy of Gold, bringing success, enthusiasm, happiness, and power. It is traditionally the color of kings, riches, and the sun. Gold touches a deep part of our minds, conjuring up images of mystical places and adventure. Light Gold crystals provide us with the simple pleasures of life – cheerfulness and contentment. Dark Gold crystals have a deeper, more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment, providing us with a mature enthusiasm and ability to share a lifelong commitment of care and love.
Holding a Pyrite in each hand during meditation can bring an instant rebalancing and refreshing burst of energy. It is also ideal for ending a meditation to bring the energy fully into the physical realm. [Simmons, 315][Ahsian, 315]
Ok, long bit about this mineral. I say it covers so much of what we have been doing and working towards!! This one bracelet on a table with hundreds of bracelets was the one that I had to pick up. Could not believe how I felt holding it and found I was holding my breath as I read about the properties held within this mineral and gift of the earth! So, Pyrite for everyone and I will follow up if anything ‘fantasical’, new and different happens during my Sits with this as part of the habit! Love, Light and Relationship Priorities to you all!
