Ruby: The July Birthstone of Self-Awareness and Personal Progress
The birthstone for July, Ruby is a grounding stone that stimulates our basic instinct for survival, and ignites the energy within us to really “be” on this planet. This crystal strongly energises the root chakra, expanding this energy centre and giving rise to a true connection to the inner self.
Working with a ruby can really help to align the self with what you really need to have around you, and what action needs to be taken by you in order to really feel like you are living out your purpose on this earth.
Encouraging awareness and contemplation, Ruby encourages us to ask ourselves questions. Am I meeting my ideals and needs? Am I receiving what I need in my work? Is this serving me? What may need to change?
Such questioning also applies to our personal world. Am I in relationships that are nurturing me and my life here on this planet? Am I giving and receiving effectively? Am I surrounding myself with people who nurture and accept me? Am I accepting toxicity in my relations and blurring personal boundaries?
This frequency paired with such personal questioning, will enable space for us to discover what can best serve us in our lives.
MAKE PRODUCTIVE STEPS
With Ruby holding so much energy and passion, its vibration enables us to feel the confidence and enthusiasm to see what needs to be done in answer to these questions. Encouraging desire and drive when it comes to taking whatever steps necessary to move forward and make positive change, this stone helps us to garner some personal wisdom regarding our needs.
Ruby is also famous for being a stone of prosperity – of wealth, sexual desire, and of physical connection to the Earth. All of these vibrations amplify our feelings of grounding – ensuring that we strive to bring out our best balanced selves, while also being connected to our more physical needs such as money, sexual connection and physical existence.
HOW TO FIND ALIGNMENT WITH RUBY
To work with Ruby and align your frequencies I suggest holding one in your left hand in a quiet space for 5 minutes a day for two weeks.
Focus on your breath and allow your mind to wonder. Don’t “stop” thoughts but try to let them float by. The brain will go into alpha or theta brainwaves which allows the unconscious to become more accessible.
After five minutes, spend a couple of minutes writing down whatever comes to mind. Don’t overthink it.
Re-read your notes after two weeks and see what went on – you will definitely be surprised.
If this feels too intense, then sleep with the crystal under your pillow and note your dreams on waking. Again, have a read after two weeks and see what went down in your unconscious hours…….
