Malachite healing benefits for your emotions is what I want to talk about. I’ve already told you about me lying on the floor, crying, asking the Universe what it wants from me and how that moment was the inspiration for July’s Mandala. What I didn’t tell you was the intuitive hit that I got from my guides and being shown my Malachite egg.
Now Malachite has never been a crystal I use because I’ve always believed that it shouldn’t be used lightly. Approach with caution type of thing. It is one said to heighten your highs and LOWER your lows. Malachite also reminds me of my late Gran so it’s never been one I thought to use due to that sentimental value. Before she passed, I gifted her with one and after she died, I wire wrapped a tree of life around it. She and my granddad are still part of my foundation.
I’m not really sure what happened that weekend or whether it was an awakening/unraveling? I had a group energy session with Kat AND I had my period that weekend. I DO believe that I was way out of whack for maybe some time and incredibly extra sensitive. It is said that when a woman menstruates, she is at her most open and it can heighten/amplify a lot of things. I also know that I bottle up a lot of emotions and I do believe that Kat’s session provided a channel to release that, because it wasn’t serving me. While I was lying on the floor, I didn’t expect Malachite to pop into my mind. That was quite unexpected and strange.
Malachite Healing Benefits:
Afterwards I went to read up about this crystal because I knew close to fuckall, except for the little mentioned above. What I read was so interesting:
Judy Hall, The Crystal Bible Vol. 1: Malachite absorbs negative energies and pollutants easily, picking them up from the atmosphere and from the body. It draws out deep feeling and psychosomatic causes, breaks unwanted ties and outworn patterns, and teaches how to take responsibility for one’s actions, thoughts and feelings. Malachite releases inhibitions and encourages expressing feeling. Placed on the solar plexus, Malachite facilitates deep emotional healing. It releases negative experiences and old traumas, bringing suppressed feelings to the surface and restoring the ability to breathe deeply. Particularly useful for cramps, including menstrual cramps… resonates with female sexual organs.
Funny how I’m on my period, experiencing all these emotions and frustration, and Malachite pops into my head mid-crying. I had only read Judy’s write-up at the time but researched further while writing this blogpost. Along with Philip’s book, I happened to take note of Gaia Crystal’s info card stuck in Judy’s book.
Philip Permutt, The Crystal Healer: Brings calm and emotional balance.
Gaia Crystals info card they give with crystals: A deeply cleansing emotional body stone. It is used to release negative/painful emotions… It is a wonderful stone for those who do not particularly like change in their lives, it allows for an easy transition to take place.
Isn’t Life and our Guides so fascinating? You’re always connected to your Support Team even when you think you’re alone. Just when I thought I had learnt from this crystal, it shows me bits I had missed. If I thought I was losing my mind, this disproves it because it’s literally a crystal brick in my face right here.
Working with Malachite:
I don’t like change. It’s inevitable and the only dependable thing in life but there have been SO many changes since April. I don’t think I have dealt with them entirely. I’ve been busy with other things: moving house and unpacking, getting work done, sorting out things for my own business, dealing with things at the house.
I’m sure you’re wondering: yeah all this info is cool BUT HOW did you work with it?
I’m glad you asked subconsciously. That night I fought with myself but I slept with the malachite in my pillow. It really felt soothing to me. After that I kept the egg on my bedside table so it was around me most of the time.
I won’t say that the Malachite made everything better overnight but it sure as hell calmed me down a lot. It’s allowed me to be more aware of my emotions so if I feel sad, I don’t really feel like pushing that down. I try to rather feel it, be sad now, cry, look at how I’m feeling and get it out of my system. It has also allowed me to slow down and not beat myself up or feel ashamed if I ask for timeout. Is it helping with changes? Possibly. I do feel that big things are approaching but I’m not sure what. There’s definitely something coming and I feel I’m not being rushed into it.
Who should use Malachite:
I have noticed quite a few people who are struggling at the moment, dealing with a lot of changes and overwhelming emotions. Grab some Malachite if you:
- Feel overwhelmed and like everything is just too much going wrong/skew/whatever.
- Aren’t coping with things. Even if these things don’t directly but INDIRECTLY affect you.
- Are experiencing change of some sort.
- Feel like your emotions are all over the show and you’ve been suppressing them for some time.
By no means this is not the only crystal that can support you. If this doesn’t resonate with you, leave it. Work with what calls to you right now, whether it’s Malachite or something else. Look at what is going on in your life, how you’re reacting, how you can better approach yourself and/or things. We don’t always nothing things and crystals can help with that for support.
