PYRITE - Healer's Gold


Pyrite in the past was named Fool's Gold but listen to what Robert Simmons wrote in his book, The Book of Stones, about Pyrite: "This combination of Pyrite and Magnetite is not for fools.  Healer's Gold is a far better name, because to those who prize stones for their beneficial energetic properties, this material is a true bonanza.  Seldom will one come upon a stone which emanates such a powerful positive energy.  It harmonizes the astral, subtle and causal bodies and aligns them correctly with the physical.  It is balancing to the male and female aspects of the self.  It activates weak or lazy Chakras and enhances the flow of subtle energies throughout the meridian system.  It helps people with low energy and eliminates passivity.  Healers who work with this stone will find that they no longer experience 'energy drain'--in fact, Healer's Gold brings about a synergy in which both practitioner and client are likely to feel a marked increase in their energy levels both during and after a session.  

Healer's Gold/Pyrite can be used on any Chakra.  One of the beneficial layouts would include seven of these stones, one at each Chakra, along with whatever other stones are indicated..."  

It is also suggested for the 3rd Energy center/Chakra, the energy distribution center known as the Chakra of relationships.

In other words, there is nothing foolish about this stone for within its gleaming beauty is a stone of hidden fire, one that can be sparked to life by striking it against metal or stone. An Earth element, it also resonates with Fire energy, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the Sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power. It is masculine in nature, therefore a stone of action, vitality and will, tapping into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion. Note that although it is masculine in nature it still offers the ability to balance female/yin and male/yang energies.

Pyrite reflects the energy of Gold, bringing success, enthusiasm, happiness, and power. It is traditionally the color of kings, riches, and the sun. Gold touches a deep part of our minds, conjuring up images of mystical places and adventure. Light Gold crystals provide us with the simple pleasures of life - cheerfulness and contentment. Dark Gold crystals have a deeper, more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment, providing us with a mature enthusiasm and ability to share a lifelong commitment of care and love.

As a talisman, Pyrite is a unique protector, drawing energy from the Earth through the physical body and into the aura creating a defensive shield against negative energies, environmental pollutants, emotional attack and physical harm. It also supports one with a spirit of boldness and assertive action when protecting others, the planet, or in standing up for important issues of community. It stimulates the second and third Chakras, enhancing will power and the ability to see behind facades to what is real.

Pyrite guards against ongoing control, criticism and manipulation by a partner, parent or employer, lending the power to resist without becoming angry or upset, changing the balance of power.
