Pick Up the Pace of Change with Riverstone
Gem Advisor Ryan shares his experiences and insights about our Gem of the Week.
Riverstone’s energy is all about speeding up whatever you’re going through or want to accomplish—whether it’s a physical cleansing, a spiritual breakthrough, or a specific healing process. Its energy is like a spring flood rushing through a dry and choked riverbed. All the debris and detritus impeding the flow is washed away and new channels are created, allowing the river to flow with strength and a clear direction.
I have found Riverstone to be a useful tool for helping move beyond a stagnant state or simply to get out of a rut. Maybe the most important thing to know about Riverstone is that it must be used with focus. This focus can come from your clear mental intention or by wearing it with another therapeutic gemstone.
Meditation and Retreats
Many people enjoy using Riverstone either during or just before meditation. During spiritual practice you focus on the spirituality within you, which is a very strong focus. When you use Riverstone this way, your whole being becomes energized, helping you make the changes that lead to heightened spiritual experiences. Riverstone can also be used to deepen the experience of a meditation retreat.
Enhancing Other Gemstones
Do you prefer 6-mm necklaces but would like the power of an 8- or 10-mm necklace? Pairing Riverstone with another gemstone of any size can intensify and accelerate that gem’s effects and help you move more quickly through the changes that gem initiates.
One necklace pairing I like to use is Riverstone and Lavender, especially before a chiropractic adjustment, massage, or yoga practice. This pairing helps align the physical and subtle bodies and opens the body to deeper energy work. As the Riverstone energizes the aura, it allows more Lavender energy to enter the subtle bodies and remove stubborn energetic blockages, bringing with it a deeper sense of balance and healing.
Another pairing I enjoy is Riverstone and Citrine. The Riverstone can speed up the process of helping you let go of emotional and mental debris. Physical tension can also unwind more quickly and efficiently.
Riverstone can also be paired with a color ray gemstone to accelerate and deepen its effects. Each of these gems carries one of the color rays of the life force. They include Ruby, Carnelian, Yellow Sapphire, Emerald, Blue Sapphire, Indigo, Amethyst, White Beryl and Pink Sapphire.
One gemstone user reported finding a partner shortly after starting to work with Riverstone. Previously this person seemed to be constantly meeting the wrong people. Riverstone can support healthy relationships by helping you move past blockages that are obstructing your way to attracting the partner you desire. It’s especially helpful when you know you’re done with a limiting situation that keeps lingering. It can help you move through the process of letting go.
Remember: Before putting the Riverstone around your neck, spend three to five minutes strongly focusing on and thinking about your reason for wearing it. This short contemplation period will focus mental energy on the situation you wish to address and focus the Riverstone’s work.
