Self-empowerment with Citrine
Citrine is a member of the Quartz family, and it varies in colour from pale yellow to deep orange. It is a stone that everyone can benefit from! It is a happy stone, and encourages us to lighten up!
Citrine does not hold and accumulate negative energy, but dissipates and transmutes it, consequently it never needs clearing or cleansing. Over the years it has come to be known as the “Merchant’s Stone”, as shopkeepers would place a Citrine stone or cluster in their cash box to bring more income to the store. Having said that, it is not only a stone for acquiring wealth, but also for maintaining it. It supports one’s personal power along with one’s creativity, to make intelligent decisions while maintaining one’s mental focus. It is most beneficial for groups, as it will act like a sword as it cuts through problems, while opening to solutions. Citrine will also assist in setting proper emotional boundaries and in clearly maintaining them. It is a great stone for people who can’t say “no”!
When I was mediating with Citrine most recently, I felt it stimulating my fifth chakra as it encouraged me to trust the words I was putting to paper. However, it’s mainly a stone for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th chakra. During the meditation, I experienced my energy level increasing as it cleared my body and its auric field. I also felt it clearing my mind as it increased my ability to focus. There was a sense of tuning into my true potential and gifts, and to focus on what I wanted to “will” into creation. As my body intensified with energy, I could feel my 3rd chakra opening up and spinning faster, all the while it was releasing negativity and limiting beliefs that say, “I can’t”. It instilled in me a fresh optimism for the present moment and the possibilities that it holds!
Citrine is good for weight loss, as well as increasing one’s energy during exercise. It strengthens the electrical flow in the brain, helping it form new connections and patterns of thought. It relieves emotional distress including suicidal tendencies. Citrine supports digestion, blood circulation and visual abilities, as well as balances the thyroid, activates the thymus and removes toxins from the body.
The name Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It was used as a gem in Greece dating back as far as 300 BC. Much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat-treated Amethyst. Deposits of natural Citrine can be found in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and the USA.
