Spice Up Your Life with Orange Gemstones
Orange is a power color, carrying the fiery heat of red with a gentler, more creative spirit to it. It is also a strong healing color, due to its association with the warm and powerful energy of the sun. Orange gemstones stimulate creativity, increase enthusiasm, accentuate personal power and bring confidence. When going through a period of change in your life, they are believed to make you more adaptable to change, helping you to “go with the flow.” If you are feeling as if you need to spice things up in your life, add a few orange crystals to your life to boost your creative juices. Orange stones are also associated with the sacral chakra, making them very powerful for sacral chakra healing.
Some of our favorite orange gemstones to use in meditation and around our space are Orange Calcite, Carnelian and Sunstone. Placing these healing crystals directly on your body, and throughout your space, connects you with the powerful healing energy of the sun. They are also a very helpful tool when you are feeling lethargic, unmotivated and creatively burnt out. Holding these orange crystals in your hands helps to reignite your inner fire and inspiration to help you move forward and create. Curious about ways we use these stones? Read below for some easy “crystal tips”:
Orange Calcite provides warmth and emotional healing to your body. It is very energizing and helps to get the positive energy flowing throughout your entire body. Place orange calcite underneath your bed to reenergize you and boost vitality throughout the next day. While at work, keep it in your pocket to keep you calm and collected. If you are in a creative field, place a piece of orange calcite on your desk to inspire you throughout the day. It will also help to reduce tension between colleagues in the work place. Meditate with orange calcite in each hand to let bring sunshine into your life.
Revitalize with invigorating, “feel better” Carnelian. Carnelian is a stone of courage, creativity, confidence and action. When you hold it in your hands, you feel a surge of life force and creative energies. It is a super-energy stone that will help give you that needed mid-afternoon pick me up at work. Place carnelian in your pockets while you are giving a presentation or lecture, when you are performing live or when you are on an interview to benefit from its confidence boosting abilities. When you have a cold and feel sluggish, try wearing a carnelian bracelet to energize you. Place carnelian stones around your home and bedroom when you are looking to improve your self-esteem.
The energy of Sunstone will bring you health, wealth and happiness. These orange crystals will help you to see the brighter side of life, carrying the light and happy energies of the Sun. Place sunstone in your coin purse or wallet to bring abundance. If you are feeling scared, hold sunstone near to your heart to ease fear. Use these stones as “ghost busters,” to keep away bad spirits. It is believed that adding a handful of sunstone stones to a bowl of warm water will help to soothe aching feet.
