Spiritual uses: Chrysocolla aligns your consciousness with the Divine. Use it at the third eye and crown chakras during meditation. Allow it to be your ally when doing shamanic journeywork or engaging in deep meditative practices. This stone evolves from a combination of other minerals over time, symbolizing the evolution of your spirit as it travels through time and experience. Use chrysocolla to call on Archangel Camuel.
Mental uses: If you find yourself disturbed by negative repetitive thoughts, work with chrysocolla to absorb and transform your angst. With this stone in hand, imagine putting those negative thoughts into a compost pile and watch them being transformed into fertile earth to support the positive seeds you plant in their place!
Emotional uses: Chrysocolla helps you achieve balance in the face of emotional challenges. It is beneficial for those who have experienced abuse—physically, mentally, spiritually, or emotionally. Allow the healing vibes of its blue-green energy to envelop those old wounds like healing salve. This stone often has cuprite included within it. This copper-based mineral is good for calming anger in cooperation with the foundational azurite-malachite composition of chrysocolla.
Physical uses: Chrysocolla reduces inflammation in the body. Before surgery or dental work, keep this stone close at hand. Then, afterward, hold it with the intention of reducing bleeding, swelling, and inflammation while promoting healing. This stone can be used as a tool of support when healing from cancer. It can also be a “girl’s best friend” from puberty to menopause, as it provides a calming vibration to ease PMS and menopause symptoms.
Divine guidance: Are you dealing with an inflamed or unbalanced situation—physically, mentally, spiritually, or emotionally? Have you been challenged by imbalances in your body? Take steps to balance your emotions through journaling, exercise, and healthy communication. Nurture yourself through rest and by taking good care of your body, mind, and spirit. Yoga and meditation are beneficial.
