Much of our experience on the Earth plane is gained from our attempts to transform our dreams and wishes into physical tangibility. This is the process of manifestation, creating form or experience from the energetic blueprints of our thoughts, beliefs, and desires. Citrine is our foremost ally in the process of manifestation.

Imagination, as Einstein said, is more important than knowledge. Knowledge refers to facts, conditions or principles already known and is thus rooted in the past. Through knowledge alone there can be repetition only, no creativity. The creative powers of human beings, and all beings, are rooted in imagination. Before someone could create the laser beam, the sonnet or the soufflé, it had to be imagined. Imagination is the means by which one turns toward the time stream from the future, opening the self beyond what has been, into the realm of what can be. Citrine stimulates imagination through three portals – the third eye, sacral, and solar plexus chakras. The vibratory resonance of Citrine activates and harmonizes these three energy centers, all of which are necessary to the process of creative imagination.

Through the third eye, Citrine activates the thinking process and enhances mental clarity, as well as the visionary function through which inner images appear. After all, imagination is in essence the process of image-making. Until one has the image, one cannot build the invention. Through the sacral chakra, Citrine stimulates the creative function, the wellspring from which new potentials are born. It is fitting that this chakra is also the sexual energy center, the source of both types of ‘conceptions,’ imaginal and biological. Through the solar plexus, Citrine generates the human dynamo of personal will. The energy that sustains one through the grunt work of manifesting one’s creative ideas is that of the will. Without this third component ideas can fizzle out before they come to fruition. Citrine strengthens this chakra, and through that, one can more readily dig down and find the persistence to ‘make it happen.’

In addition, it enables us to open more fully to the energy of Divine Will and the path of love. By resonating with Citrine, we are reminded that we are loved and supported by the Universe in our efforts towards manifestation. When one chooses the path of love and joy, opening to the power of Divine Will, Citrine supports us in bringing forth what is truly beautiful. It carries the power of the sun, and cleanses and transmutes any negative energies or thought patterns that may be blocking the flow from imagination into manifestation. Citrine very rarely needs cleaned of energy.

Note: Wear in contact with skin.

It carries an energy of growth and ripening promise. Chrysoprase brings hope even into the darkest regions of one’s shadow self. It reminds us of our constant connection to the source of All-That-Is. Its energy expands the heart chakra and allows one to receive the infinite Line and Abundance of the Universe. It helps one accept one’s birthrights of prosperity, joy, and health. It helps one to understand one’s interconnectedness with all of creation and to heal feelings of separation and isolation.

Chrysoprase helps one remain centered in the heart at all times, providing the courage to face difficult or threatening situations with steadfast resolve and truth-centered compassion. Through the compassionate lens of Chrysoprase, one is able to look back at relationships which ended unpleasantly and to resolve them inwardly with a profound sense of forgiveness, both for the other person and for oneself. It can aid in identifying patterns and habits in relationships and their karmic bases, and helps us release attachment to these fear-based emotions, belief systems and actions (as well as bitterness and past disappointments). It teaches us that anything that isn’t love, isn’t love! These stones truly give strength to the emotional heart so that relationships of all kinds can be approached with the curious heart of youth.

Chrysoprase also activates the solar plexus chakra, seat of the will. It works to blend one’s personal will with the urgings of the heart, thus uniting our individual desires with the heart’s higher longing for the good of all. Meditation with two Chrysoprase stones – one placed at the heart and the other at the solar plexus – will facilitate the linkage of these two energy centers, coordinating their energies and reforming them into a powerful unified vibrational force. The awakened heart, fueled by the undivided will, can do much to awaken the hearts of others and to bring the heart’s desires to fruition.

Chrysoprase’s color speaks of its strong healing energy and of its connection to the domain of Nature spirits. Wearing or meditating with these stones can facilitate a deep heart connection with the spirit of the Earth Mother, as well as devas and other Earth-spirit entities.

METAPHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Affirmation: I am filled with the vital energies of life, and I take action with confidence and power.
Chakras: Earth, base, sacral, solar plexus
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio, Capricorn
Element: Fire

Beneficial for: PMS; menstrual cramps; delayed ovulation or menstruation; emotional trauma; aura stabilization; negative-energy transformation; emotional disease; digestive process; vitality; energy; detoxification; addiction; ovaries; testes

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.
