Garnet, the birthstone for January, is also a great all-purpose gem to use as an aid during meditation. It can be used to help make decisions or bring order to your life.
For the meditation, you’ll need a garnet gem or a smooth garnet stone. A string of garnet prayer beads would also work. Select a deep red garnet or one with a brown tint. You’ll also need a burgundy candle. Begin by lighting the candle, then relax and center. Hold the garnet and breathe deeply. Concentrate on your concern and then hold the garnet to your heart. You’ll begin to receive messages. Let them come, even if they don’t make sense. When youfeel ready to return to your everyday world, extinguish the candle. Thank the garnet for its help. Your thoughts should be clearer now so you can make any decisions.
