I decided to select a crystal card from The Crystal Deck, by Amanda Samson, to share about today. Interesting enough, I picked Unakite, one of my favorite jaspers. The author writes the key words describing this stone are ’Decisions, Expression, Releasing’. Unakite is a made up of a combination of three minerals: Green Epidote, Pink Feldspar and Quartz. These minerals combine to enhance this jasper’s role in uncovering what holds us, dissolving the blocks and raising our self esteem. Unakite doesn’t work in a rush, rather it sustains a gentle steady release of feelings and encourages us to express them in a healing and helpful manner.
It helps to open and clear the solar plexus chakra, which stores the emotions and raises the energy from the solar plexus to the heart chakra. The Pink Feldspar in Unakite encourages you to love yourself for who you are, which in turn allows you to attract and keep the love of others.
Drawn to Unakite indicates that what is underlying a situation will soon be revealed. Once the cause is recognized, release and healing will begin. It unifies the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of the self to bring the necessary clarity for making firm decisions. Unakite has a protective element within its make-up and will help you to release negative energies and addictions that may be holding you back.
