💎 Crystal Card of the Day for October 4th, 2017!
The experience or perception of childhood rejection and/or bullying may be so mentally and emotionally scarring that the effects are carried into adulthood, coloring one's view of self and relationships. You may be hyper-sensitive to criticism (even perceiving it when it was not intended), experience the world as cruel and uncaring, be triggered by social situations (even deal with some level of social anxiety), and sense hostility and antagonism in relationships influencing you to respond in kind. To feel wrong for being who you are is a spiritual pain that cuts so deeply that it can feel like a struggle managing day-to-day life. And identifying as "the rejected one", "the outcast", or whatever label this aspect of yourself was given may be completely disempowering, preventing success in any area of life, or awaken "the rebel" within who antagonizes and bullies others, leaving a trail of hurt feelings and ill will wherever he/she goes.
You are neither the victim, nor the rebel. These are merely archetypes within that you have identified with. The real you is so much more powerful and full of love than either of these aspects. When you imagine being filled with Divine light, both of these identities get pushed aside or shrink until they disappear in the presence of its brilliance. Smithsonite is like that caring friend you may have never had, soothing away everyday stresses and the pain of feeling unloved or unwanted. Just a feel better stone, you won't experience an intense emotional release as it is a subtle influence yet works quickly! Smithsonite encourages trust, tranquility, compassion and love in relationships, and awakens your psychic abilities, allowing you to perceive the truth on a deeper level, instead of imposing your wounding. Giving the cooling and calming influence of the ocean, Smithsonite will ease any resentment and anxiety, promoting a feeling of oneness. Also, a beautiful companion during bouts of depression, this meditative stone allows you to see the light.
