This little beauty I picked up at Mother Earth Gallery. (Remember she has sound on her site so you may want to mute your device before clicking on it.)
Here are the details and why I needed this stone. It was the only specimen they had left so I was lucky she put it aside for me. As you read what this stones properties are (This info is from The Crystal Bible) you will understand why it was so important to me to have. (It has to do with my being DID/MPD. Comments in (parentheses) are ours where needed.) I am not putting everything here from the book, just the parts that resonate with me. If you want to read more about this stone or others, there are many links online but you can also just buy the book if you want to… I definitely recommend it.
Attributes: Smithsonite is a stone of tranquility, charm, kindness and favorable outcomes. It has an extremely gentle presence and forms a buffer against life’s problems. It is the perfect stone for releasing stress that is almost at breaking point and for alleviating mental breakdown. (I am at a crossroads as well as at my breaking point… did you ever want or need to cry your eyes out but you’re already so cried out there seem to be no tears left, no hope left, no nothing?)
This stone is ideal for anyone who has had a difficult childhood and who felt unloved or unwanted. (I was loved, my childhood was not devastating but at some point in my childhood we shattered into The Collective and I – Diana – still don’t know why. However I felt unloved and unwanted and that I could never do anything “right”.) Smithsonite heals the inner child and alleviated the effects of emotional abuse and misuse (There was a lot of that in my teen years and as I got older… but I got wiser. Not family, but other things caused that abuse.) It is gentle, dissolving emotional hurt subtly. Its effects are noticed in feeling better rather than in traumatic emotional release. (I don’t think I could stand another emotional release lol) This is an excellent crystal for rebirth. (I am going through that rebirthing process as we speak.)
Emotionally, Smithsonite aids difficult relationships. This stone imparts harmony.
Healing: Good for a dysfunctional immune system, sinus and digestive disorders… (remember, for more details, you’ll have to get the book. There is more information there.)
Position: Place as appropriate or carry always. (Me, I carry it always if possible.)
Specific Colors: Specific colors of Smithsonite have additional properties. You can see those above in the picture… mine is Blue/Green
Blue/Green Smithsonite — heals emotional and other wounds by bringing in universal love. Gently releasing anger, fear, and pain, it balances the energy field between etheric and emotional bodies, and eases panic attacks (I have a lot of panic attacks). It also assists in attaining the heart’s desire and promotes friendship.
I think you can see why someone like me would be drawn to this stone. It has so many properties that I need in my life right now and I will carry it always – except for when I cleanse it of course. lol
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you ❤
