Carnelian overcomes negativity and self-doubt, encourages creativity and action and strengthens confidence and the vital life energy. Heralded as a protective stone, calling forth a sense of action, carnelian assists in manifesting one’s goals into reality. This is particularly useful for those who procrastinate or feel “stuck” due to a lack of motivation and inspiration. With its warm color, carnelian attunes itself to the lower 3 chakras. This increases vital life energy, sexual energy, creativity, metabolism and blood circulation. Carnelian also helps in detoxifying the body by eliminating unhealthy physical habits and improving overall health.
