The third stone in this bracelet a friend made for me (that I wear almost every day) is azurite. Gorgeous, right? Looks like little earths!
Azurite is known to help enhance spiritual powers. It helps calm and streamline thoughts. “It will help you to bring your true aspirations back into the consciousness, making you aware again of your real values and desires.”
Physical healing properties:
Azurite helps treat hypertension; it shortens accretion time of fractured bones, assists against melancholy, hallucinations, hysteria, epilepsy and other abnormalities of the central nervous system.
Azurite is useful in treatments for spinal alignment and disorders of the vertebrae, rib-cage and small bones, particularly those which are malformed. It may also be beneficial in treating arthritis and joint problems, for detoxification, and issues of the kidneys, gallbladder, spleen and liver. It is thought to be good for healthy skin and teeth, and to encourage the development of an embryo in the womb.
Azurite aids circulation and oxygenating the blood, and works at a cellular level to restore any blockage or damage to the brain. This is a good stone for Alzheimer’s, dementia and other degenerative brain-related disorders, as well as aging. Azurite may also soothe migraines, lessen tinnitus, and balance vertigo.
Emotional Healing Properties:
Azurite cleanses and strengthens the emotional body, releasing stress and worry, and overcoming grief and sadness. It brings a healing light into consciousness allowing it to be infused into thoughts, feelings, words and action. It also reveals fears and phobias for what they are and provides an understanding of why they occurred in the first place.
Azurite lends the courage to overcome negative patterns of behavior stemming from insecurity and fear. It helps those who are deceptive or lie habitually to be more clear and truthful to themselves and to others. It calms those who talk too much out of nervousness, and encourages those who hold back from self-expression to verbalize their thoughts and feelings.
Azurite is excellent for overcoming an inferiority complex, living only to please others, and in overcoming domestic bullying by one’s children, partner, parents, or friends who always know best. Azurite lessens tensions between different generations when sharing a home, especially when there are three or more generations, or relations involved in step-parenting.
“Azurite works with your Third Eye chakra. This energy draws you back to the Now and connects you with the intuitive center of your mind. From there, if you would like to focus on a particular topic or issue, you will likely find that the sorting, prioritizing, analyzing, and even decision-making is easier. This is not because you have cleared your mind of the mental clutter. It is because you have opened your natural intuitive channel which allows you to see more clearly and bypasses much of the clutter. As a result, your ability to connect with and receive Higher Guidance is increased.
Azurite stimulates the mind. Once you are connected to a more intuitive state of being, you find your thoughts find natural structure. Your ability to access information that you have gained through education and life experience is more readily available! It is as though someone cleaned up the filing system where you used to store this information. It is very stimulating to the intellect. If you are trying to organize or figure things out, working with this stone may make it easier to “connect the dots”.
“Azurite tempers the mind; it releases stress and confusion, and alleviates worry, indecision, and thoughts that linger in the back of the consciousness. To restore balance and control over emotions and reactions, simply hold the crystal and ask to have the troublesome thoughts evaporate. It is a rubbing stone that prefers to be touched to release its energies, so when wearing or carrying Azurite, remember to rub it often.
Azurite is a stone for connecting with sacred powers through religious music, such as Gregorian or Buddhist chants, choral music and hymns; also for healing with sound, especially using the drums, didgeridoo, pipes or the voice.
Azurite stimulates all the mind centers, nourishing a keen interest in life, one’s function in society, and discovering new commonalities and links within our world. It encourages the study of new and challenging subjects, not only for school or college students, but for adults trying to fit study in with other commitments, and for “students of life” over-fifty or in retirement. Azurite enhances focus and concentration, memorization and retention of information.
An excellent crystal for examinations, interviews, presentations, or negotiations, Azurite also fortifies long-term career plans, especially in large or very structured organizations. It is particularly beneficial for careers in all governmental departments, museums, libraries and universities.
Azurite is a good crystal for older people who live alone or in sheltered accommodations to maintain their independence, mental alertness and physical health.”
Definitely a good stone for me, for lots of purposes, including…
-helping me order my thoughts (they’re numerous)
-helping me connect to guides and intuition
-helping me calm and center
thanks for including this for me, Jen!
