Mental & Emotional Healing Properties
Emotionally, Agate is a glorious gift for upping your self-confidence. For those who struggle with decision making or who tend to sit on the fence, Agate can encourage you to tap into your own deep well of intuition, to connect with your sense of knowledge, and to look inwards for the answers rather than to external forces. Agate stones are often crystals of strength and courage, they enhance our mental functions, they keep us sharp of mind and clear of heart, and they invite us to turn up the dial on our analytical abilities when it comes to sifting through problems. Unlike some of the dreamier and elevated crystals, Agate is more about giving you a great base in reality and ensuring that you stay balanced in your thinking. These traits can be enormously helpful, especially when it comes to giving you a sense of grounding so that you always feel safe and secure in your own being. For those who want to root in when it comes to their own soul and who are ready to let go of trauma and embrace their own brave truth, Agate gives you all that you need.
