Unakite: The Crystalline Key to Love, Heart Healing, and Physical Well-Being.
Have you been feeling emotionally triggered lately? If so, you are not alone. Energetic intensity has been a theme of 2017’s first chapter. Due to a convergence of cosmic factors and increasing planetary light levels, our issues are bubbling to the surface right now. We can see this happening on a personal and collective level, which is ultimately a gift to help us heal and release them once and for all. And the month of February always has a way of highlighting our emotions in bright neon yellow. Valentine’s Day is like a mirror that shows us what is happening in our hearts and relationships. It’s a time of reflection, in all senses of the word! If you don’t like what you are seeing, it is time to grab Unakite—a beautiful stone that clears old patterns on the emotional and physical levels. And if you do like what you are seeing, Unakite can expand the love in your life and make it even more beautiful.
Unakite is a lovely composite of pink Feldspar, red Jasper, and green Epidote. It has very pleasing color combinations that range from moss to pistachio green entwined with pink, peach, and faint red. These colors are related to the heart chakra, making Unakite a stone that nurtures, heals, and balances the emotional body. When your heart chakra is in the proper balance, you have the ability to take in all of the good that life is offering and to not allow in negativity that is around you. You are more easily able to deal with natural fluctuations in relationships and to respond appropriately. And you experience more harmony, compassion, and positive connection. Wearing Unakite jewelry, keeping it in your pockets, or working with it regularly will help you stay in this balanced heart space.
When you begin working with Unakite, its first order of business is to help you locate and release old emotions. Many spiritual teachers recognize that the root of physical disorders is usually a repressed emotional pattern. If you have ever read Louise Hay’s book, You Can Heal Your Life, you have probably been astounded by the chart that gives the underlying emotional cause to any physical issue you are experiencing. When you don’t express the emotions you are feeling, that energy has to go somewhere. It ends up being stored in the tissues of the physical body. According to Naisha Ahsian, co-author of The Book of Stones, Unakite helps prevent these emotional patterns from turning into disease, or helps release them from the tissues if they have already manifested. Part of the process of emotional release is identifying these old emotions and where they are residing in the body, and then letting them out in some productive way–such as through art, writing, communicating, or receiving energy healing. But to achieve a real breakthrough, you should also work on releasing the thoughts and habitual ways of being that contribute to these lower emotional states. Unakite can assist in all of these aspects of emotional release, creating a total healing.
Unakite is a godsend for helping us to release addiction patterns and unhealthy habits, which normally have an emotional component. Major lifestyle change doesn’t typically happen overnight; it is usually a process. Unakite provides energetic support that is slow and steady, encouraging making changes in a sustainable way. Under its influence, you can begin to let go of the emotional triggers that cause the habits. And over time, Unakite can initiate a detoxification process, helping your body to let go of the substances and energetic residues that are stored in the cells.
Once the healing work is done, Unakite shines in the roles of nurturing your loving relationships and taking your heart to the next level. Due to the Epidote content in Unakite, it is a stone that can naturally facilitate growth and expansion. It is a perfect stone for those who are in a committed romantic partnership, as it will expand the love and support the relationship as it matures. If the couple is ready to expand the family by bringing in children, Unakite is known to help with conception. According to Linda Mason of crysalvaults.com, Unakite will support health during pregnancy, and parents-to-be can begin forming a spiritual bond with the unborn child by placing Unakite over the womb.
Each of us is a beautiful work in progress, always reaching for truer expressions and experiences of love, well-being, and fulfillment. Working with Unakite can assist you, wherever you are in your life and spiritual process. Allow it to lovingly help you to get to the heart of what’s blocking you, clearing the way for your radiant heart to bloom.
