The Seafarer Talisman

Relax with Aquamarine

Lose your concerns in this green and blue ocean, releasing fear and anxiety to the Sea Goddess and replacing your old beliefs with blissful knowledge and trust. Aquamarine is a lovely and gentle gem that evokes the sea in both its name and color. Not long ago, sailors saw this as a stone of courage and felt that carrying it would help them return safe and prosperous from their journeys.

Aquamarine connects with the throat chakra. If this chakra is out of balance, you can experience sore throats on a physical level, and over time, this imbalance can manifest in thyroid problems. Emotionally, you might experience depression due to a lack of expression, or may have communication and speech problems.

By wearing an aquamarine close to the body, these potential weaknesses counter balanced by activating the throat chakra, drawing the calming winds through it, like it might the sea. This quietude reduces stress and helps to still the mind, giving power to the spoken word, speech and writing.

For the energy of aquamarine, with or without the stone, try the “Meditation for Trust,” found in Kundalini Yoga by Shakta Kaur Khalsa. Do this meditation for 40 days and see what happens.
