Aquamarine is a Water element stone, powerful for cleansing the emotional body and opening communication. Its gentle energy brings emotional patterns to the surface and assists in understanding the reason for holding onto old thoughts or patterns that are limiting forward motion. It also identifies where ego is causing one to overreact, assume a victim/abuser role, manipulate others, or martyr oneself. By consciously releasing these patterns, it allows for better relationships, love, and compassion. Aquamarine helps balance excessive anger or fear and clears past emotional, physical or verbal abuse. It is an excellent stone for children who have been through traumatic situations and are acting out aggressively or who have disassociated from their emotional bodies. It heals the effects of over-judgmental parents who set impossible standards and panic attacks lingering from guilt and inadequacy into adulthood.
Aquamarine is useful for moving through transition and change, its cleansing energy removing resistance and helping one overcome the fear of the unknown. It helps not only in the release of emotional baggage, but the clearing out of physical items and clutter.
