Ruby Properties & Chakras
Ruby (In Latin, ruber meaning red) is a Corundum with a trigonal crystal system in a hexagonal crystal class, similar to that of Sapphire. It is valued for its rarity and durability with colours ranging from reds, pinks to purples. The most valuable ones are those in blood-red colour where it was sold for US$160.9 million, called the Sunrise Ruby. In Ancient Egypt, the Pharaohs also believed that Ruby was a talisman that provided love, joy and everlasting health if you kept it in contact with your skin.
Ruby allows the user to feel safe, like having a hot cup of cocoa on a cold winters night next to a warm fireplace. It centres our physical state to be present in our surroundings. If you ever need relaxation from the physical pains in your body, you can place Ruby on the specific area of pain for relief. You may do so in a meditative state or when you are lying down. Allow its vibrations to circulate through your body and if it is not enough, you can even pair it with Carnelian, Bloodstone and/or Red Jasper. In healing with Ruby, you will be in touch with the deeper issues inside your body. For some, it could be as simple as period pains or on a much more serious note like sexual dysfunction, reproductive issues or addiction. And before you think about putting it in your water to consume, I highly suggest you do so in a small ziplock bag so that you do not have direct contact with the stone.
*Drinking Ruby water will encourage your body to have better control of its system but you should not ignore or forgo your doctor's medication. Please use metaphysics as complementary to health benefits and not as a replacement. Also, Ruby water is not tap, alcoholic, flavoured or sparkling water. Do use spring water only.*
Those who have suffered from physical abuse can also drink Ruby water to heal from old scars or wounds. This will help you to open up your channels better so that your body no longer holds an attachment to the past. Your feelings and emotions will be open when doing so and this is where you will need to release expectations that have not been met or have caused you hurt. You may feel confused, fearful and doubtful and that is perfectly normal hence it would be best to do your meditation with the Ruby in your less dominant hand with a little Root Chakra Blessing Candle to aid you. Focus on the present in little ways to get in touch with your 5 senses again with what you currently See, Hear, Touch, Feel and Smell to know that you are no longer where you are in the past and where you are now at the beginning of a new start. A beginning in which you can have control to make a change and have faith in your purpose once you have made a decision.
This is a great stone for people working in fast-moving industries like Creative, Trends, Beauty, Technology and Finance. Fire elemental crystals or stones will invigorate your motivation to push through unpredictable hardships.
This is a grounding stone that activates your Root Chakra to provide healing in 3 blocked areas of your chakras namely the Sacral Chakra, Heart Chakra and Third Eye Chakra. Ruby's hexagonal structure also makes it a well-balanced stone in nature and metaphysics.
If your Crystals/Stones Pendulum does a clockwise spin, you can rest assured that you are in the right vibrations through your healing state on its properties. An anti-clockwise spin indicates the lack of awareness, acceptance or understanding of the matter. This means you should meditate more to work on balancing your chakras and finding your answers.
Do not place in Sunlight. Highly recommended to cleanse and charge it with moon water first before activating the charge with a Root Chakra Tibetan Singing Bowl. If using a Clear Quartz Singing Bowl, you can use it to charge your crystal without using moon water. Cleansing the crystal still requires water only.
