Aligns with the Heart, Throat, Crown Chakra and Bindu Visarga (point at the back of the head)
Centers, lifts emotions, strengthens self-confidence, balances male-female energy and warms the Heart. It comes into its own when used for spiritual development, more than for physical healing. It has a strong connection through the Crown Chakra and opens both the Third Eye and Throat Chakras, as well as the Bindu Visarga*, making it helpful in communication with Spirit Guides and the Angelic Realm. It can aid meditation, attunement and spiritual growth. Hemimorphite has a powerful Buddha energy, and can be of help on the path to enlightenment while allowing one to remain ego-less. In some crystal healing systems it used to purify and strengthen the blood, and to treat blood disorders. The crystal ‘wakes up’ as it is handled, and the energy becomes stronger with use.
