Carnelian To Break Bad Habits

If you’re looking for a crystal that can help you in your quest for a healthier lifestyle or to help you combat a toxic or questionable habit in your life, search no more! Carnelian is your new best friend!

This beautiful crystal in a vibrant orange with reddish undertones belongs to the family of chalcedony and has been a widely used crystal throughout history, being particularly famous during the Roman and Bizantine Empires, when it was used to craft official seals. This crystal can be used in elixirs or infused, for it doesn’t contain toxic particles.

Carnelian is the crystal that you want to use when you need a boost of courage, help breaking a bad habit, consistency, confidence and passion. The orange and reddish tones of this crystal make it ideal when you need a boost of energy and stamina and when you are feeling really tired for no reason. It works a bit like energetic caffeine and it helps you stay awake through a long night-shift.

This crystal is perfect when you need some help for instance if your are quitting smoking, for it helps you commit to your purposes and stick with your decisions. It has connections with the lower chakras, particularly with the second or sacral chakra, making it also a crystal that you want to have around to enhance your creativity or find renewed passion in your work.

It helps you go through those difficult conversations that make you feel that your guts are twisting inside, and it brings courage to go through confrontations and secure your boundaries. It can also come in handy if you are going to a job interview, you have to speak in public or virtually anything that scares you, but specially things related to social interaction and performance.

On your sacral chakra, this stone will help you reconnect with your sexuality and find desire, as well as bringing a bit of creativity into the bedroom. On your solar plexus, Carnelian will bring courage and will help you project a positive image of yourself.

My personal favourite use of Carnelian is in elixir, which you can prepare by placing the crystal charged with your intention on a bottle filled with mineral water and leave it overnight. If you are going to do this, please be careful not to accidentally swallow the crystal and leave the bottle out of the reach of children. These elixirs are a great aid for the habit-breaking purposes of Carnelian, and great to have around when the temptation to go back to your old ways strikes!

Carnelian is very easy to acquire and in fact it comes in most chakra kits. Chalcedony is very abundant, so you will find it very reasonably priced in most metaphysical shops and also online. It usually comes presented as a tumbled stone although it is not rare to find it raw, however, for elixirs it is preferable to used a tumbled version.
