Throughout history, there have been many beliefs in the positive attributes of carnelian. In ancient Egypt, Carnelian rings were worn to eliminate bad tempers, hatred, jealousy and anger. Back then the stone was also used to protect the dead during their journey to the afterlife.
In renaissance magic, Carnelian was engraved with a picture of a warrior or a sword and placed in the home to protect it from storms. This amulet was also carried as a protection. Carnelian was also worn to prevent skin diseases, insanity, nosebleeds and blood diseases. It was also believed to be able to stop nightmares.
Wearing Carnelian is recommended to those who have a weak voice or are timid in speech, for the warm colored stone will give them the courage they lack so that they will speak both boldly and well. Carnelian is also used to promote peace and harmony and to rid the wearer of depression. It promotes courage, motivation, creativity, concentration, patience, and self trust. Physically, Carnelian has been said to be able to stimulate metabolism, heal lower back problems, rheumatism, arthritis, and neuralgia.
Creative and confident, the energy of a Carnelian stone motivates a rush of vibrancy within the sacred chakra to bring forth your inner star. Tapping into its properties will lend a sense of power that can prove especially beneficial for anyone needing to break through creativity blocks or those embarking on new projects and ambitions.
Whether you need to inject a boost of vigour into your sex life, work life or creative life, the Carnelian will provide the vital energy that you need to promote positive change. Use it when your self-esteem or confidence is being tested.
