Are you a Citrine addict? Maybe you just can't get enough of Hematite in all of its varied and wonderful forms. That isn't as unusual as you might think. In the metaphysical world, we would say that you resonate with a particular mineral or stone and that can make you feel like, no matter how hard you try, you will always walk out of a store with the same type of stone.
I have a friend who once thought she would eventually own every piece of citrine on earth. She ignored all other minerals and gravitated to citrine (every shade, every habit of growth, every country or mine of origin). One day, she stopped craving citrine. You might wonder why (she certainly did). The answer is actually quite simple.
You gravitate toward what you need. Consider the energy emitted by Citrine. It can cleanse and regenerate, absorb negativity, energize every aspect of life. It is gently grounding. It is a joyful stone with bright energy which lights up many aspects of the lives of those who work with it. It is used to increase, magnify and clarify personal power and energy. This increased personal power can be used for the focused intent of the individual, as it brings will power as well. It will combat negative energy of any kind. Citrine is also a stone that brings hope.
Since citrine eliminates negative energies, it is good for protection in general and helps bring stability energetically. In the mental arena, citrine enhances mental clarity, confidence, and will power. The mental clarity and confidence support bringing increased creativity and honesty. Since citrine brings self-confidence as well as positive energy, it can also help eliminate fears of being judged or of others' ideas. It is also used to dissipate fear of being alone or unworthy of love. Citrine is used to reduce self-destructive tendencies. Citrine can help overcome emotional traumas and grief that may lead to these emotionally self-destructive issues.
So, if my friend needed this energy, she would logically gravitate to that stone because it served a purpose in her life and when things changed; when she evolved to another phase of her life, she would want and need to be surrounded by other stones.
So, listen to what your intuition tells you and use the stones that resonate with you for as long as you feel that resonance. When it is time to move on, you will know.
That doesn't mean you have to leave that special stone behind or give it away. Remember, it has a connection to you and it has seen you through the good times and bad times...just as a friend who stayed by your side to provide support. There may come a day when my friend needs that massive collection of citrine again and when she does, the stones will be there to provide support.
