EMPATHIC CRYSTAL from Crystal Personalities by Patricia Troyer
Empathic Crystals are the specialists at empathizing with you on days when you feel unloved, unappreciated, or just plain unattractive and unlovable. These crystals are also specialists at helping you open your heart, and of protecting the already open-hearted from absorbing too much of the pain of others.
Empaths are the experts at reminding you that you have compassion for others without shredding yourself in the process. If you are feeling swamped or drained by someone else’s pain, hold an Empath and let it absorb what you feel. Now bury it in sea or rock salt crystals or let it rest on a bed of sage and copper until you intuitively know when it is ready to face the world again. And then say, “Thank you”, loud and clear.
As many Empathic Crystals sooner or later develop spectacular internal rainbows, they are excellent reminders that it is who you are on the inside that matters, and that it is possible to generate your own rainbows even when you have been badly treated, neglected, pushed around, ignored, and even dropped on you head and heart a few times. And given the overall symbolism of quartz crystal, an Empath is a perfect symbol for the smaller self who is willing to sacrifice itself to the Greater Self.
Empaths are outstanding teddy bear stones to tell your troubles. They always, always listen and understand on some level. And sometimes they even begin to help you change the things around you. Having been where you are, they know how it feels and what to do about it. They, of course, make great Dream Stones.
