DISCLAIMER ON CRYSTALS:
The information on our website is derived from our own experiences and from intensive research, books, articles and information on the subjects/items.
Using or wearing, stones or crystals, does not mean that you can treat, cure or prevent any disease. Please consult your Health Care Professional for information on health care issues and do not stop any medications or courses of treatment, without first consulting your Health Care Professional.
Using crystals or stones as a wellness therapy is very much a personal choice. While stones/crystals have been used historically, to relieve or prevent symptoms, the items we sell or recommend on our website, offer no guarantee of results.
Properties: We often think of our emotions as originating and residing in the heart and mind, and Unakite can soothe any Heart Chakra issue because of both its green and pink colors. But, another place where our emotions formulate, often imprisoned, is in the Solar Plexus. This “plexus’ of nerves that reside under the sternum, are not only considered our “gut feelings”, but is physically a super highway of on and off ramps for the physical flow of our bodily processes. As young children, discouraged away from the full expression of our emotions, we learn that shallow breathing helps us not “to feel” as much. The repression of feelings can become automatic, and life, while perhaps less painful, also has less joy.
Unakite can be very helpful in the steady release of feelings long held in. An opaque coral pink and olive-green stone (two colors associated with the heart), Unakite consists of three minerals: feldspar, epidote, and quartz. When one is supported by deepened self-esteem and self-awareness, it is easier to allow old feelings to arise so that they may be released. Epidote, which derives from the Greek word epididonai meaning “to give additionally,” will indeed give additional support to one’s heart and balance the functions of these internal body processes. This stone can help those who suffer from stress, allowing these individuals the peace of mind and ability to get a good night sleep. It is also believed to help release conditions which have been inhibiting personal growth.
Folk Remedies: Unakite lends another element to self-awareness. In working with this stone people have noticed that they were able to go deeper than the physical symptoms of an illness and understanding the mental and emotional sources for it.
Feng Shui: This stone is often used in the Southwest corner of the home for matters related to the Heart and Relationships. (Be sure and use 2 stones here), use in the northeast area for Skills & Knowledge or in the north Family area for peace of mind.
