Wisdom From This Stone :
"If you find yourself drawn towards this stone, it simply means that you are ready to break out from 'what was' in order to find out what the Universe has for you. Though every inch of you is crying for the 'warrior' in you to show up and claim your victory, however you often find yourself getting distracted too easily by your surroundings. You find it hard to focus, hard to find the inspiration or the creativity that you need to take the next step in your life.
There may be times where you find yourself physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually unstable; like a constant loop or matrix that is keeping you trapped away from your dreams and goals. Sometimes, you feel yourself taking 1 step forward and 3 steps back; causing you to feel frustrated, angry and irritated with yourself.
This feeling then projects into your environment, the people around you; sending out signals into the Universe; bringing back experiences that are against your wishes, but sadly, in line with your actions; causing you to feel disconnected from yourself, from your dreams and from your 'Gift'...
Being called to the Hematite means that it is time to break past your limitations and to free yourself into the most creative period of your life. It means that the Universe is ready for you to unleash your power; to unleash yourself. Though breaking often means breaking apart the barriers that has been created by your past or your old relationships, It also means that the world that you've to know, may no longer be the world that you will come to find in the future. It means that your current world may fall apart, so that your future can fall into place...
This stone comes to us in moments like these, helping us navigate the unstable terrains of life, while keeping us grounded and connected to the world around us. It gives us a sense of security in our lives; a feeling like we have it under control. It helps us see past the clutter, organise our thoughts and ideas, while giving us the confidence to execute our plans without the fear of failing.
It teaches us that greatness isn't possible without risking our all; that creation bears more failures than successes; lessons that ultimately becomes the source of our blessings. It prepares us for the battle ahead, keeping us stable from within, and showing us that courage isn't the absence of fear; instead, it is act of fearing something so much, yet daring ourselves to do it anyway...
