Sunstone was associated with the Sun during the Rennaissance because of its sparkling orange-gold hue. It was used by magicians to call upon the influences of the sun. It is a protective stone.
Placed before a white candle, sunstone will spread protective energies throughout your home.
Symbolically, sunstone is linked to moonstone. Carry the two stones together to bring the influences of the Sun (Healing, Protection, Success) into harmony with those of the Moon (Love, Peace, Spirituality).
Sunstone is worn to:
Give you extra energy when you are ill or under stress
Stimulate sexual arousal and increase sexual energy
Increase self-healing power
Promotes harmony among the organs functions
Sunstone is highly effective in cleansing the aura and chakras, and for removing hooks from possessive loved ones, lovers, or anyone draining of your energies. Sunstone surrounds these hooks with love and positive energy, and returns them to the source. It is especially beneficial when ties need to be cut, or if you have difficulty saying "No."
It helps remove co-dependency, overcomes procrastination, and encourages self-empowerment and independence.
Those who hold back because of fears and self-doubt may find Sunstone melts away the sense of unworthiness, feelings of being discriminated against, disadvantaged or abandoned. It emanates a rich and positive spectrum of energies that re-balances one's emotional patterns, and encourages optimism and enthusiasm. It can help transform anger into energy and judgment into joy.
