It seems like a lifetime ago that we were in bathing suits rolling around on the beach under the summer sun. We’re back full-swing into making plans and getting things done. As life speeds up, we’re welcoming any extra positive reminders to motivate our hard work and ambition. Pretty pyrite is the perfect addition to your desk space.
Pyrite’s vibrant and protective energy is just right for our seasonal mood, and its pretty gold-like look makes it a luxe gift that’s infused with meaning. Pro crystal healer and founder of Energy Muse, Heather Askinose, is breaking it down for our Crystal Of The Month series…
What you should know: Though the nickname for this stone is fool’s gold, this crystal will have you feeling anything but foolish. Pyrite’s reflective quality has long been thought to reflect negative energy back to those who send it, as it’s stone of truth and protection. That’s why ancient civilizations often wore it as a protective shield. The high-quality forms of the stone that mostly come from Spain are especially prized — they are known to develop into perfect cubes atop a matrix.
How It Heals: Pyrite is mostly thought of as a stone of abundance, but it does much more. The way pyrite guides you to attract more wealth and prosperity in your life is through encouraging introspection. Pyrite mirrors back to you things that you may have been trying to ignore. But this confrontation helps you to challenge your own negative tendencies. Through doing so, you can create new habits that are more in line with what you are trying to manifest.
Pyrite helps you to break through self-limiting behaviors and beliefs so that you radiate vibrant golden energy. When you put out an abundant energy, you attract that energy back to you. Working with pyrite stimulates a cycle of positive returns. It starts with encouraging positive thoughts, which turn into positive actions, which bring in opportunities and inspire more positive thoughts. The additional protective qualities of the pyrite will reflect away negative energy; your transformation will continue to see increasingly positive results.
Where to Keep It: Keep pyrite on your desk. It will inspire you to stay focused on the golden horizons that lie ahead. If your work feels stagnant or like it lacks risks, just being able to look down at that reminder of the abundance within you can usher in the inspiration you need to challenge old habits.
How to Use It: If you’re looking to attract more prosperity in your work or business, then you’ll want to use pyrite. To manifest your intention, write it on the back of a business card. Then set the card on your desk face up, placing a small pyrite stone on top of it. For those who are looking to spark a wealth of vibrancy into every area of their lives, I’d recommend wearing a pyrite on the right wrist — your energetic output on is on the right side of your body. It’s through the right side that you spread your energy out into the world. By wearing pyrite on your right wrist, you can exude the energy of abundance. I always say: Put out the energy that you want to bring in.
