Uses for Green Aventurine

There is no wrong way to use crystals, you can always follow what you are guided to, but I have a few tips here if you’re unsure.

Carry it around with you in a pocket, purse, wallet (it is a good luck crystal after all), and for ladies – in the bra. 
Wear it
in a piece of jewelry; there are many beautiful pieces by amazing artists out there. Seek what you’re drawn to.

Meditate with it in your dominant hand for releasing, non-dominant for receiving. For example, if you are looking to rid of an old habit, meditate with it in your dominant hand. If you need to obtain some heart energy, place it in the non-dominant.
Grids – I haven’t fully introduced you to grids yet, but there is a beautiful energy that enters the home or a room where you lay a grid. You can do this one of many ways.
-First, we have different grid mats that you can use so you know the placement of the crystals, and so you can call in the energy of the various ancient geometric patterns.
-You can place a crystal on each outside corner of the home on each floor to grid an entire house.
-Or, you can place one in each corner of the room you are gridding.
-You can also add grids to your outdoor garden(s) with Green Aventurine to promote healthy growth, and crop increase.

Chakra Healing With Green Aventurine

Chakra Healing with Green Aventurine

Use Green Aventurine to clear blocks in the Heart Chakra; it can bring calm and well being into the Chakra. Green Aventurine can also create an energy shield around the Heart Chakra, protecting it from those with ill intentions towards you.

When the Heart Chakra is out of balance, we can become very untrusting of others. Unwilling to give or receive love, possibly not even knowing what love truly is. We can become overly sensitive and have strong responses of anger and frustration.

Bring in the green energy of this crystal to clear blockages and rebalance the Heart Chakra. This can aid in opening us up to our true inner desires and needs throughout all of the bodies. We learn acceptance of life’s ebbs and flows of relationships and life more easily when we work on the Heart Chakra with Green Aventurine.

Final Thoughts

Green Aventurine - Final thoughts

Green aventurine is a beautiful energy to bring into the home and meditation. It is all about balance, prosperity, and calming. The deep earth energy helps to keep us grounded in our physical body. If you are having imbalances in the Heart Chakra, the Green Aventurine can assist with that by calming emotions, and clear blocks in the Chakra, allowing it to open and function properly.

The energy of mercury that is tied to Green Aventurine can bring Heart-centred conversations, mentality, thinking patterns, rationality, reasoning, adaptability, and variability.

The colour green alone is a very healing colour in its own right. This is why the majority of humans find peace and solace in nature. If you do not have green crystals around and are seeking a deep earth connection or earth energy healing, just visualize the colour green. Ancient tribes would do this visualization when members of their community would become ill; they would also create elixirs with Green Aventurine for medical healing (this was, of course, before modern medicines).

Any time that it may feel like your Heart is heavy grab your Green Aventurine to help lift the weight. Because it is so calming to the emotional body, it can easily and quickly shift the discomfort of the heaviness. Especially if you are in grief – Grief is another topic we will talk specifically about at another time, but there are many levels to grief. It is not just about a loss of life; grief sits on our hearts for a lot of things. Loss of relationships, loss of self, and especially right now, grieve the way things were or used to be and that it will likely never be the same again. If we hold on to the grief for too long in the Heart it can create “dis-ease” in the body, which can turn into actual medical ailments, so it is so vital to our health that we take care of this Chakra. Other crystals work well for the Heart Chakra, and it is dependent on what you need help with, but anything green or pink is typically associated with the Heart.
