Carnelian is a very powerful stone that resonates closely with the Sacral Chakra. Working with Carnelian will boost your personal power and increase physical energy. It will also enhance your vitality and allow for added strength, both physically and emotionally. It can also influence a calmed state as the boost in energy can help you approach new projects and new beginnings with confidence. Carnelian is good to use when you are nervous about doing something that is outside of your comfort zone.
Mentally, Carnelian is a powerhouse for focusing our minds during meditation or otherwise. It helps us to shut out the mind chatter when focusing on a task is needed. It enhances mental strength by helping you to find your center of balance so that you can approach life’s problems with a clear head. Carnelian also helps to ground you during meditation, or whenever grounding is needed.
Physically, Carnelian helps to enhance male stamina and potency. In women, it will help ease and balance PMS issues. Since Carnelian is closely related to the Sacral Chakra, most issues pertaining to sex, vital energy and creativity can be improved with the assistance of Carnelian.
Carnelian is also a protective stone. You can use it to guard your home from theft and damage. Black Tourmaline is a typical stone for setting up a protection grid around your home, but Carnelian can do the job, as well. It offers a slightly more warming approach with a little more intensity.
How to work with Carnelian
One really great way to use Carnelian to boost your physical, mental and emotional energies is to create a small crystal grid and leave it in place for as long as you can. Simply place a clear quartz generator on a flat surface (where it won’t be disturbed) and place four to eight pieces of Carnelian around it in a square or circle pattern. Use a double terminated quartz point (single terminated also works) to draw an energetic line between all the crystals while visualizing your intention of increased energy. Sit with your new grid for a few minutes in silence and gratitude then leave it and carry on with your day.
