Why Would You Use Larimar?
It should be noted that, since larimar is such a recent addition to the canon of crystology, its powers are not yet fully understood, even by seasoned crystologists!
If you own a piece of larimar, and are interested in its metaphysical properties, it would be greatly appreciated if you could leave a comment describing your experiences below.
With that said, there are some facets of larimar that are already fairly well-established, which I will be outlining in this article.
However, if you have had experiences with this stone that run contrary to what I describe, we would also like to know!
The full “personality” of a gemstone takes quite a while to be fully understood, and any experiences with it are highly valued at this stage.
Larimar is a serene crystal that can promote relaxation and calm. It is a popular choice for a “worry stone,” a smoothly polished stone that is held in the hand and rubbed by the thumb as a folk practice for relieving anxiety.
Larimar’s connection with the element of water – which is the element that rules our emotions – means that it is a wonderful stone to use for all manner of anxiety related to emotional issues, such as that caused by relationships, social anxiety, guilt, or anxiety caused by “thinking bad thoughts.”
It is connected with the throat chakra, which is the chakra of communication (and usually characterized with a bright blue or turquoise colour).
It makes it much easier to communicate about issues of both emotion and fear, and promote confidence in speaking about these issues.
It has an emotional healing effect that will assist you in overcoming self-sabotaging behaviour, such as martyr complexes, learned helplessness, or developing a narrative of self-victimization.
It will also help you communicate with others to express the fact that you are having these self-sabotaging urges, which will help your loved ones develop frameworks for lifting you out of these phases.
It is a wonderful stone for meditation, as its positive effects on communication also include the communication between yourself and the higher powers of the universe.
Larimar crystal can be used in meditation in a number of ways – it all comes down to your personal preference and your overall meditation style.
For instance, you might prefer to wear a comfortable piece of larimar jewelry and have its closeness to your skin coax the best energies out of this stone to guide your meditative journey.
Yet you might instead prefer to set the stone in your meditation space as a guidance crystal and protective influence, and you’ll enjoy just as many perks for doing so.
Similarly, you can hold the stone in one or both hands as you slip into a meditate trance and enjoy it that way.
How Will Larimar Help You?
Larimar will help you develop healthy relationships, both with others and with yourself (and remember, developing a healthy relationship with yourself is the first step towards developing healthy relationships with others).
It can help you communicate your feelings effectively, recognize your own negative and toxic feelings, and dispel those in a healthy and efficient way.
There are many emotions for which this is the case, but it can be extremely difficult to differentiate between them.
For example, anger can be a positive emotion when it leads us to try to make changes and right injustices.
However, it can also be an incredibly toxic emotion that has no positive effects at all. When we are actually experiencing these emotions, these two forms of anger feel exactly the same – angry! But they’re actually very different.
Larimar can help you differentiate between productive negative emotions and destructive negative emotions, and once you can make that distinction, you can start to let go of the destructive ones.
Larimar is a stone of great wisdom, exploration, and heightened understanding of the universe. It can put you in touch with powers that you might otherwise never be conscious of.
It can help put you in contact with the angelic realm and develop a better spiritual sense of self, although this is not something that everyone is interested in at every stage of their lives.
If you are interested in developing your spirituality, using larimar can help you become more aware of the glory of God, or of whatever higher power speaks to you.
This stone can harmonize energies and lead to better relationships between people who may have different priorities, interests, or even entire worldviews.
It is completely possible for such people to have positive relationships, but it can be difficult. Use larimar to help you develop these harmonisations.
Once you have found harmony with others, it becomes much easier to pursue specific goals in order to achieve the specific things that you want out of life.
