Bloodstone Meaning & Properties

Healing Properties of Bloodstone

Bloodstone cleanses and purifies the aura and brings the subtle energy body into balance. This allows one to become fully grounded in the body and ready for the challenges life brings. It supports your physical body’s endurance and energy as well as your emotional resilience and determination to follow one’s heart.

Bloodstone is strengthening to the body’s vitality and wellness, offering both physical strength and inner determination. It makes a good gift for those struggling with a chronic illness or a terminal diagnosis, because it helps us face reality with bravery and not collapse with overwhelm.

Bloodstone truly brings out the best in us, encouraging altruism, courage, and a willingness to sacrifice for the greater good. It helps one stay true to the path in the face of resistance and obstacles, and is ideal for people who feel alone in the world on a quest that is right for them but not understood by those around them.

It can be nourishing and grounding to wear bloodstone when visiting family members at holidays who don’t understand your life choices, or who have wildly different political views. It can help you see others compassionately without sacrificing your own sense of self in the process.
