Fluorite takes the floor

Fluorite isn’t forgotten.

That’s fluorite, folks, not flouride. No talk of dentists and toothpastes here today!

Fluorite, companion to malachite in the prior post on gemstones.

I’d intended to write on both of my little {ahem} rock-solid friends. But as we know, the road to that fiery underworld is paved with good intentions! The post on malachite turned lengthy enough and fine as a stand-alone. Today the spotlight turns to fluorite.

My fluorite’s not “pocket change.” I like that play with words because gemstones can and do help one change!

You can see for yourself the hunka-hunka burning cooling stone that fluorite is set beside my LED votive candle (no candles, not even tiny tealights, allowed in apartments!):


And the side view:

Unless you’re wearing cargo pants with pockets sized for your lunchbox and thermos of hot coffee, you don’t tote this stone around every day in your pocket.

Now, to briefly recap, after deep-cleansing some 30 stones in alignment with our recent new moon / partial solar eclipse in Scorpio and setting them in their bowl, fluorite (in addition to malachite) jumped out, all lit up, wanting prominence, seeking to assist at a time of deep deep — speaking of Scorpio, the underworld and unconscious being her domain — struggle around boundaries, violations, attacks, protection and safety. {I won’t go into it beyond that.}

It’s not uncommon for stones to know more than I know! Gemstones are little – or large – spiritual beings. They have energies of their own as living creatures. They communicate, some more loudly than others, if only we pause our mind chatter to listen.

Fluorite. I’ve had this piece a long time. If faded memory serves, I got it during the deepest pitch-black darkness of my adulthood in Washington state / Tacoma circa 2008-11. Four years sounds about right for my fluorite.

Life’s Treasures Kuai has a fascinating explanation on fluorite, including fluorite by its various colors (i.e., blue, white, yellow, rainbow, green).

Interestingly, fluorite, it says, comes from the Latin word for flux — quoting now: “a substance that promotes flowing and combining of other materials, especially minerals and metals … Flourite is used as a flux in making steel and other metals that require the removal of impurities.”

Fluorite hence has the ability to raise impurities to the surface. Quoting again:  “It cleanses, purifies, dispels and reorganizes anything within the body and environment that is not in perfect order.  Fluorite is known to rid the aura of cording (unwanted attached energies from other people).”

And from sunny ray.org:

“Green fluorite is able to awaken the heart chakra. It is connected to intuition, grounding, and absorbing the excess energy, including the energy from the environment. It brings information from the subconscious to the conscious mind.

“Green fluorite helps in dissolving the emotional traumas, it cleanses the mind, the chakras and the aura. It can be used very successfully in crystal healing and self healing, where it helps all egocentric problems on psychic level and with the stomach and intestines on physical level.”

{Coincidentally, the stomach’s my storehouse of my emotions, traumas, etc.}

And from charmsoflight.com:

“Fluorite cleanses and stabilises the aura.  It absorbs and neutralises negative energy and stress.  An excellent learning aid, fluorite increases our powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps us in decision-making.  It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally.

:Fluorite boosts the immune system and stimulates the regeneration and restructuring of cells and DNA, particularly in the skin and respiratory tract, and heals ulcers and wounds. Fluorite strengthens bone tissue, and alleviates rheumatism, arthritis and spinal injuries.  It improves the discomfort of shingles and other nerve-related pain.”

{Coincidentally, dealing with bone tissues and structure big time right now.}

One thing I read long ago concerns fluorite’s ability to neutralize energies discharged by electronics so is recommended alongside computers, TVs and such; also abilities to harmonize hormones.

Fluorite has much to offer, as you can see, and volumes on this easily-found stone are online. All of these properties resonate in my current life beautifully.

I could pull excerpts from now until eternity! Instead, I’m going to let my green fluorite speak here from my hand: {going live on the air}

“I’m for grounding and clearing the space around you. You are feeling crowded by others’ energies — not only your ‘roommates’ who are in actuality tenants who because they have invaded your space feel like roommates.

“Yours is a lifetime of others in your space by intrusion, invasion and violation, beginning in infancy.  You’ve never had the experience of someone standing up for you, protecting you, calling you worthy of protection, safety and protection from harm — and worse. Not your mother. Not your father. No one.

“You still don’t have it but you’re trying to learn it within yourself. This is the hardest road taken. And not unusual for old souls traumatized in many many lifetimes. Grit and determination are your nature. And you are weary. Wearied by life, wearied moreso by old habitual patterns that not only no longer serve you, holding onto them is detrimental to your creative life force.

“So I am here, green fluorite that I am. I jumped out with malachite because while very different stones, each of us, we can assist independently and synergistically in helping you create — create from nothing — the sense of protection and boundaries and safety that your soul’s crying for and has been crying for for essentially a lifetime.

Archangel Raphael, he who heals

“Look at each of us, malachite and fluorite. What color are we? Green. Malachite: the deep deep healing green of a forest and I the pale green of springtime. Healing color, green. Green, the lightwave of Archangel Raphael whom you’ve summoned to help you and whose picture graces the wall by your computer.

“You chose, you listened, wisely with me, fluorite, and malachite, for a trinity of healing from invasions / intrusions / violations and to create from nothingness boundaries for the first time. It is never too late, even at your self-called ‘old lady age.’ (:) )

“You’re asked ‘only’ for one thing and no small thing it is in working with me, fluorite, and malachite and that is to cooperate. A challenge for the fierce fighter that, yes, you’ve had to be to save your life.

“Cooperation is the buzzword for the inner healing and transformation you wish to effect. Step aside, you rugged independent fighter, and allow flow. Allow malachite and I to be there, giving you the space to breathe that you have never ever had in the presence of nearly all others.

“Keep us by your bed on your “Costco nightstand” of a box! In the the room where you write in flow and listen to music.

“Last but not least, you HATE people telling you how to do your job when you have it mastered. It offends and insults you and belittles your immense capabilities and intelligence. The same can be conveyed for me and malachite and your many gemstones. Let US do our work so that we can be of divine assistance.

“Breathe well — breathe, simply — in my presence, green fluorite, soft, gentle, peaceful flowy springtime. My energies while soft and sometimes subtle will keep your neighbors away, the ones with ill intent too, so that you can begin to relax and create within yourself safety.

“I, fluorite, thank you for inviting me in and letting me speak through you and your writer’s hands! Like malachite and all gemstones and human beings and all living creatures, we like to be seen and heard!  And that begins, for you, with a feeling of safety in this world. It begins with boundaries.

“Now go out and play! That’s part of breathing too! Another post for another time.”
