Ruby in Zoisite

Ruby in Zoisite: This amazing combination of ruby & zoisite is a perfect marriage if you are desiring independence. Ruby in zoisite has the unique quality of promoting individuality while also keeping you interconnected with the rest of humanity. The ruby portion of this stone provides great intensity, promoting a passion for life and encouraging you to follow your happiness. Ruby also makes you stronger during disputes or controversy, which is sometimes needed on the quest for independence. The zoisite aspect inspires you to be your own person free from outside influences rather than conforming to the norm and helps you to explore your own ideas & desires.

Sunstone

Sunstone: While sunstone is known for being a very happy, energizing, and peaceful stone, it is also amazing for asserting your independence. Sunstone is ideal for halting codependency. It aids in cutting ties from other people, especially those who drain your energy or who are not beneficial for you. It is a wonderful helper if you typically have a hard time saying “no” or turning others down, if you are often sacrificing your own well-being to take care of someone else’s needs, or if you procrastinate and hold yourself back from moving forward. Sunstone encourages independence, vitality, & self-empowerment.

Lepidolite

Lepidolite: A beautiful pinkish-purple gemstone, lepidolite frees you from influences and expectations from other people and invites you to stand in your own space. It is a great stone for taking on new challenges and overcoming the fear of change by encouraging you to release old patterns and belief systems that no longer serve you. Lepidolite is also a wonderful stone for mental focus and speeds up decision-making, helping you to act on your desired independence more quickly.

Carnelian: Carnelian is my favorite stone for anyone needing extra power or oomph to take action. It is certainly an intense stone, stimulating motivation, courage, & creativity. It helps you to trust yourself and to overcome old negative thoughts & patterns.

huge citrine drops

Citrine: Coordinating with the solar plexus chakra, citrine provides the power needed to make moves towards independence! It is especially beneficial for people who would like to be more independent, but are struggling to find the willpower or self-purpose to do so. Citrine increases self-esteem, enhances individuality, improves motivation, and encourages self-expression. It makes you less sensitive to criticism and helps you to look forward optimistically. Citrine is also a wonderful stone for manifesting & attracting wealth, prosperity, & success, providing you with the financial means often needed for personal independence.

tigerseye

Tiger’s Eye: A grounding stone, tiger’s eye aids in accomplishing goals, realizing & utilizing your inner resources, and reminding you of your intention. By uniting the hemispheres of the brain, it helps you to stay focused and to use practicality to fulfill your desires. It also is wonderful for increasing self-worth and helping you to acknowledge your talents & abilities.
