The Healer's Stone

Emeralds for Compassion

Emeralds are a symbol of love and good fortune. It’s said that if a man and woman present each other with an emerald stone their love grows over time and becomes permanent. Emeralds invoke the vibration of Kwan Yin, The Goddess of Compassion, which is why many healers are naturally drawn to this powerful stone.

Emeralds are known as The Healer’s Stone, because they give the healer inspiration and wisdom from the mental plane, and open the heart to give love, compassion and wisdom to others. Emeralds are beneficial in a personal meditative practice, as well as for healing. Placing an emerald on the heart while meditating can help restore the heart to balance, lift depression and help with insomnia. Doing this as a regular practice has a penetrating effect on the heart chakra (located in the center of your chest), perhaps because it access desires that are held deep within.

If you are drawn to the qualities this stone amplifies, try the attached Meditation for Compassion taught by Yogi Bhajan. Do it for 40 days and see what happens. In addition, if you have an emerald stone place it on your heart chakra and wear it for 40 days to give an extra boost. Use the healing power of emeralds to amplify your heart’s prayer and open you to the compassion of the Cosmos!

Sat Nam, Thank you for posting these beautiful pearls of wisdom. Unfortunately, I had some trouble listening to the Compassion Kriya. I think the link is not working.
