Coral And Its Magical Properties
When we think of Coral we don't really think of it as a stone, we think of the sea for it is of the sea. However it is in a way considered a stone, or rather skeletal remains of marine life called Coral Polyps. We see Coral now as decorations in aquariums but they have uses that many may not know about.
We may see coral used in jewelry but besides that this stone is also used for many things by Pagans as well.
It is said that the Ancient Egyptians actually had a use for Coral. They would place pieces of it in tombs because they believed it would protect the are from evil spirits. In their beliefs coral, each and every piece contained a drop of divine blood, giving it the ability to keep them safe.
The Greeks believe that coral came about when Perseus chopped Medusa's head off and the blood reached down to the bottom of the sea, creating coral. I find that to be rather interesting actually. The Ancient Greeks have interesting beliefs as to origins of things.
This stone is a beautiful stone and because of it being said to have an organic origin it is supposed to help us reconnect with nature and its many different wonders.
If you require help with emotions Coral is said to help quiet them and bring peace as well. It can help with intuition, creativity, imagination and visualization with the anyone who may need it.
It is actually said to be able to aid in communication with the Ancient Ones of the world to help get knowledge that one may need at the time being.
Many stones and crystals can help in healing and can aid in meditation. Though I always tell people to be wise about this, to not fully rely on the crystals. I also tell people that using crystals does not give you the right to avoid seeing a doctor. It is very important to keep that in mind. I like to always use crystals along with whatever the doctor has given me to help me with an illness. However if you don't like taking medicines you can always ask if there's anything herbal that may help. My doctor is very open to this kind of thing.
Coral of a dark red color is used to help heat and stimulate the bloodstream. The ones that are closer to a pink shade can help with your heart, to bring forth harmony. Then there are the red/white ones. These ones are said to be useful in healing any kind of mental disease and anemia. These ones may also strengthen the circulatory system and bones. If you need any kind of aid with tissue regeneration then the red/white ones are the ones for you.
I myself do not use this stone all that often because it is of the sea and I really don't connect with the sea that well. However it is a stone of its own right and I feel that just because I myself may not like it that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be written about.
I do find the colors of them to be beautiful and would consider to wear them in jewelry. Coral if anything makes beautiful bracelets.
