I was thrilled about experiencing Seattle for the first time. While exploring the underground section of Pike Place Market, we made our way to a small crystal store called Gem Heaven. I’d done my due diligence before we arrived and had my mind-set on visiting several metaphysical and mystical stores in and around the market. I enjoyed perusing the unique selection at Gem Heaven. There was plenty to choose from and ooh-and-ah over in the tiny shop. I purchased several crystals – one of them being a little ruby.
After reading about the healing properties of rubies, I programmed my stone to remove any and all negative things from my life. I learned that this powerful stone can help you become more positive, balanced, and energized.
With respect to one’s work or career, ruby promotes motivation, goal setting, concentration, and leadership abilities. If you are dealing with difficult people in the workplace, this stone will assist you during disputes, giving you courage and shielding you against psychic attacks.
With respect to relationships, ruby stimulates and balances the heart chakra. Looking to spice up your social life or attract the attention of an admirer? Try wearing a beautiful ruby! But make sure that you want the attention because ruby can get the blood flowing!
In relation to health, it is claimed that ruby detoxifies blood and the lymph system; treats fevers and infectious diseases; and helps to alleviate issues with the heart, circulatory system, adrenals, kidneys, reproductive organs, and spleen.
As far as mental benefits, ruby promotes clear visualization and stimulates the pineal gland. However, if you are a sensitive type like I am, be ware as the crystal may cause over-stimulation.
