Gem Use: Grief & Letting Go

Opal’s fire carries a spiritual energy that burns through attachments, wounds, and negative patterns. It can amplify your emotions, bringing semi-conscious patterns to the surface of your awareness to be dealt with. When these are cleared, it also amplifies joy.

The degree to which the process of emotional cleansing is painful is directly related to how much resistance you have to it. When working with opal, it is best to let go as thoroughly as possible and let the healing process take place as it needs to.

Howlite is calming because it encourages you to “live and let live”, letting go of attachments that are causing stress and encouraging you to enjoy your life as it is without worrying about what others are doing. This in turn promotes true rest, which is why it is known for helping with insomnia.

Rhodochrosite is a powerful stone for emotional healing. It helps you gently revisit painful childhood memories, heal the past, and reclaim the parts of yourself that you may have suppressed or disowned for emotional survival. It is also a stone of joy and nurturing, helping you access the freedom and magic of a child when they feel safe and loved.
