Agate has the power to harmonize Yin and Yang energies, to balance the opposing forces which hold all matter in place. It also brings great strength to the wearer or bearer, although one must accept that this stone works slowly over time.
It is excellent for grounding and stabilizing our human electromagnetic fields and for stabilizing the aura. It can also transmute negative energies and vibrations into positive waves that benefit rather than hinder our spiritual and emotional development.
Agate is well known for its calming, soothing effects on the mind, primarily when used over some time.
It can help enhance mental clarity and improve concentration, and stones with a predominance of blue are especially beneficial in smoothing the way towards efficient, positive communication (by working on the Throat Chakra).
Agate stones are also useful for spiritual work as they raise our consciousness and link into the collective consciousness of humankind and the universe’s benevolent wisdom.
Emotionally these gemstones help us to overcome bitterness, anger, and resentment.
It helps us let go of negative feelings towards others, foster love, and the courage to start again after a traumatic emotional experience.
