One question I get is “What stones would help me be more prosperous? To manifest more money?”
While some books will link particular stones to prosperity and manifestation, I find it involves bigger – or deeper – issues. People who want prosperity are often pushing it away or not managing what they have. One person agonized about their taxes – how could they owe so much when they had nothing?!? Turned out they were making a lot – but spending it all on a hobby. Another felt impoverished in spite of regular income, but fed their animals unnecessarily expensive food. Yet another has money making skills, but gives all their work away and then can’t pay utility bills. Not all the manifestation in the world will improve one’s prosperity if what prosperity there is isn’t acknowledged or is thrown away.
Stone wise, I focus more on what the underlying issue is rather than prosperity itself.
Is the person ignoring how the earth plane works? Maybe black tourmaline will help them get more grounded and practical.
Do they not value themselves, not feel worthy of receiving what they want? Maybe pink rhodonite can stimulate self acceptance.
Are there negative thought forms around prosperity – that money has strings attached or can invite arrogance? Was money a factor in conflicts between the person’s parents? Maybe green calcite can help prompt a re-framing.
Is someone else taking all your money or draining your resources? Reflective hematite for shielding might help.
Are you setting out on a new path, needing help is establishing yourself? Consider tender green peridot for encouraging new growth.
Not a one-size-fits-all answer, is it? And there are many more issues and stones what could be relevant. The real question is “what will help you?”
In my practice I have the person consider their issue and hold a stone. I dowse their field to see what happens. Does their energy expand or contract? How does it feel? Then we do the same with a different stone. That way they can feel the differences themselves and pick which they are most drawn to.
Stones can help with issues like these if they are the right stones for the person but they are most useful when working with a therapist or counselor who can help unearth the issues and explore resolution. If nothing else, the combined energy of you and another helps things move.
