I bought a bloodstone pendant through eBay. It was reasonably priced and has a beautifully carved rabbit. The wait was longer since it was shipped from Hongkong but I still wanted it for Pangga. It was in good condition when it arrived encased in a pink box. Of course, I changed the box for a white one when I gave it to my man.
Why bloodstone and rabbit? Well, bloodstone has healing properties and we are both Gemini Rabbits. Pangga was so jazzed when I gave it to him. He wears it to work now.
Bloodstone is an excellent blood cleanser and a powerful healer. It is believed to have mystical and magical properties, controlling the weather and conferring the ability to banish evil and negativity and to direct spiritual energies. In ancient times Bloodstone was said to have been an “audible oracle”, giving off sounds as a means of guidance. It heightens the intuition and increases creativity. An excellent grounding and protecting stone, Bloodstone keeps out undesirable influences. It stimulates dreaming and is a powerful revitalizer.
Psychologically, Bloodstone gives courage and teaches how to avoid dangerous situations by strategic withdrawal and flexibility. It encourages selflessness and idealism and aids the recognition that chaos precedes transformation. Bloodstone assists you in acting in the present moment.
Bloodstone is an energy cleanser and immune stimulator for acute infections. It stimulates the flow of lymph and the metabolic processes, revitalizes and reenergizes when body and mind are exhausted, purifies blood, and detoxifies the liver, intestines, kidneys, spleen, and bladder. Bloodstone benefits blood-rich organs, regulates and supports blood-flow, and aids the circulation. It reduces the formation of pus and neutralizes over acidification. It is helpful in cases of leukemia as it supports the blood and removes toxins. The ancient Egyptians used it to shrink tumors. Bloodstone can be used to heal the ancestral line. It cleanses the lower chakras and realigns their energies.
