Carnelian is a very high-energy stone, that will share its energy with you, so you will have more energy. Always keep a carnelian in with your other stones as it helps keep them clean. Put a carnelian by the front door of your home to attract abundance into the home. It is used in rituals that ask for success in business or work. To bring more success to your work rub 4 carnelians with rosemary oil. On your altar place 1 carnelian then a yellow candle then 1 carnelian, orange candle then 1 carnelian and green candle. As you light each candle “see” the changes you want in your work, including the money.

Carnelian activates the base, sacral, and solar plexus chakras, bringing an influx of life force, sexual and creative energies, and assertive will. It is a powerful aid to those who wish to build confidence, courage, passion and power within themselves. It is of great help to the gentle souls who wish for good things but have difficulty making them happen. Often, those who lean in the direction of spirituality do their inner work from the heart chakra up, ignoring the untidy realms of physical existence associated with the lower chakras. This is an error which can make one ineffectual and passive in one’s life. Without the vitality of the physical energies, one can neither enjoy life nor have much power over it. Carrying or wearing Carnelian can aid in awakening the vital energies of these lower chakras, increasing zest for living and the willingness to take the risks inherent in all strong actions.

Carnelian is a powerful ally to call upon when one needs to take major action. It lends courage to ‘take the leap’ and dedicate oneself to a new path. Carnelian can assist those who procrastinate or are unable to decide on a course of action. When used in meditation, it can help one understand how to bring a concept into being. It is helpful in manifestation work due to its ability to stimulate one to take action toward one’s goals. The saying “God helps those who help themselves” describes the energy of Carnelian beautifully. It encourages one to stop waiting for one’s dreams to appear and instead begin to direct one’s own experiences as channels for Divine Will.

Another aspect of the energy of Carnelian is its ability to strengthen and fortify the physical body, enhancing the flow of life-force energy and its expression through physical vitality. When we neglect the physical, we are neglecting the temple in which our spirit resides. Carnelian’s energy resonates with the body, focusing one’s attention upon the state of the spirit’s house. We can strengthen our connection the Divine by strengthening the physical structure which supports our spirit.
