Metaphysical Properties of Unakite
This stone works to alleviate feelings of pain, anger, and stress by emitting soothing and therapeutic frequencies into its environment. Therefore, it can be especially useful if bad news has you feeling down. During such times, you may use or wear the stone to allow its energies to ease away your pain or heartache.
Unakite jasper is further recognized for its ability to enhance visionary capabilities through stimulating the third eye chakra; it can also provide us with an awareness of past lives. Looking at past lives often provides insight into what we are dealing with in the here and now. Upon opening the 3rd eye, you may become capable of visualizing various things you'd wish to manifest in order to improve your life. This stone is a solid choice for those seeking a more meaningful direction for their existence.
It can heighten courage levels, and can also assist you to build a higher degree of self confidence. Better developed self esteem can help you to gain control in areas where you'd previously feared to establish it. Whether you are nervous to ask for a raise at work or are fearful of dating again, this stone can help you to establish the confidence you need. In the process, it will transform fear into a positive and constructive energy, such as love, kindness, optimism, etc.
Try meditating with it held at either your crown or third eye chakra. You will find that it not only has the qualities already mentioned, but it also heightens psychic awareness, especially when held to the third eye area.
