Azurite Healing Properties

Azurite is beneficial in the following ways:

Spiritual Healing: Azurite rouses the quest for the search of truth in one’s own personality by relinquishing old beliefs, and by challenging examinations. The lively and vibrant blue color of Azurite has the ability to move intuitive thought into the conscious mind to be reviewed more keenly for truth. It maintains the spiritual connection of the wearer with the supreme and instills in him the power to let go of things.

Azurite additionally permits one to sense reality and secures one from being misdirected.

Emotional Healing: Azurite releases anxiety and agony thereby strengthening the emotional body. It imparts the beam of healing power into the consciousness to let it get infused into thoughts, ideas, words, actions, and emotions of a person.

Azurite provides the audacity to conquer over negative behavioral patterns that take place due to the presence of insecurity and fear. It helps those who are unreliable and have the tendency to lie frequently to be more clear and honest to others. It calms those who talk too much when they get nervous and heartens those who hesitate from expressing themselves to put into words their judgments and feelings.

Azurite is equally great for people who are surrounded by inferiority complex due to some of the other reason.

Physical Healing: Azurite is a valuable stone for treating disorders of the vertebrae, spinal alignment, and trouble in rib-cage and small bones, like malformation. It may also prove to be beneficial in taking care of arthritis and joint problems, issues of the kidneys, spleen, gallbladder, liver, and for detoxifying the body. It is considered to be good for hale and hearty skin and teeth, and to promote the healthy growth of an embryo in the womb.

Azurite aids movement and oxygenating the blood, and also helps in restoring any obstruction or injury to the brain. This is an excellent stone for dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other disorders related to the brain, as well as aging. Azurite may also appease the pain of a migraine, diminish tinnitus, and stabilize vertigo. It apparently also improves reflex actions.

Heals and Balances Chakra: The deep blue energy of Azurite stimulates the third eye chakra in arousing the spiritual and instinctive self. It endows the wearer with insight into all areas of his life. Azurite lines up the chakras and regulates the physical body to the insubstantial, melting blockages all through the system. The flow of energy of Azurite also heals the throat chakra, which is the voice of the whole body. The throat chakra is valuable in encouraging the person for expressing himself to the world without hesitation.

Azurite is associated with both Throat and Third eye chakra and heals them well.
