Agates work slowly and gently but bring great strength. They are excellent for grounding, working on the emotional, physical and intellectual levels and aid in centering and stabilizing physical energy. Agate has the power to harmonize yin and yang and is useful for any kind of emotional trauma, creating a sense of safety and security by dissolving internal tension. This stone helps to do only what is necessary and to say no when appropriate. Agate gently facilitates acceptance of one’s self, building self-confidence and overcomes negativity and bitterness of the heart. It heals inner anger, fostering love and the courage to start again. Aiding self-analysis and seeing beneath the surface, it brings to your attention any dis-ease that is interfering with your well-being.
This stone encourages quiet contemplation, raises consciousness and links into collective consciousness and awareness of the oneness of life. Agates improve concentration, perception and analytical abilities, leading to practical solutions. Their love of truthfulness encourages speaking one’s own truth.
