Bloodstone, the Spiritual Warrior stone


As Spring starts to spring, we shrug off that sleepy winter energy and crave the motivational energy of the Aries Season. A perfect stone to work with during this time is Bloodstone.


Bloodstone activates our inner strength, willpower, and courage that has been masked by fear. This crystal is a reminder that the only judge of our thoughts and actions should be no one other than ourselves. It provides us with the necessary confidence and fortitude to move past hard times and see the growth ahead. (crystalcouncil)


Its use for healing, and its connection to blood and detoxification of the organs, date back five thousand years to Mesopotamia. In many cultures, Heliotrope (another name for bloodstone) was dipped in cold water and placed on the body to aid circulation and transfer the power of the sun to prevent injury or disease, stop the flow of blood, or cure any wound. Its coagulant effect was renowned, and for this reason, ancient warriors often carried Heliotrope as an amulet of protection and courage, as well as its practical applications. Bloodstone was treasured not only as a talisman of good health and long life but was reputed to bring its owner respect, good fortune, riches, and fame. It protected one from deception, helped overcome enemies in battle, and secured victory in court and legal matters. It was also believed to have magical properties with the ability to control the weather by averting lightning, conjuring storms, or summoning rain.(crystalvaults)
