Not all that glimmers is gold as Pyrite proves with its precious hues and potent protective properties. Pyrite meaning comes from the Greek word for Pyr, which translates to fire – an echo of how the light catches on the surface of the stone, or perhaps in testament to the strong masculine energy and sense of perfect passion.
Pyrite is all about protection. It’s a stone that wants to shield and protect its wearer in every way possible. Whether keeping you safe from emotional vamps or protecting you from psychic attacks, cutting through negative vibrations, clearing EMF smog or simply stopping those toxic thought patterns from running through your head, Pyrite is ever eager to keep you pure. When we are able to free ourselves of those toxic ties, we find that life loses its facades and we are able to see straight through to the truth and live in sweet authenticity.
Pyrite is all about keeping you strong and stable and ever free from the shackles of control. It seems to have an intuitive quality that works to keep you out of harm’s way – both spiritually and emotionally. It is also a stone that inspires creativity and brings a dash of added sparkle. It encourages strength and leadership qualities, inviting you to step up to your own potential because your willpower and well-being are ever in check.
When it comes to physical healing, Pyrite is all about building up your strength and stamina. Remember, it’s a healing stone that leans on its masculine energy. Because of its love of protection, Pyrite is an incredible stone for cutting down on environmental pollution and the effects of this on the body. It’s said to be a useful tool in fighting viral infections, reducing fevers, and strengthening the immune system along with the respiratory system.
When it comes to emotional strengthening this is where Pyrite truly lights a fire in the soul. Once we feel protected from outside elements it's so much easier to feel safe and secure in one's own skin. You will notice confidence levels starting to creep up, you will be able to bring out those natural leadership qualities you could have had stashed away, and you will easily be able to see beyond pretence and to live in the light of authenticity.
Despite its gold-like appearance, there’s no need to hoard Pyrite away. This stone will bring plenty of power to your soul and your surroundings and is pretty enough to be on show. Pyrite makes a perfect partner for balancing out your feng shui and when worn as like protective amulets in gemstone jewellery can send those healing vibes straight to where they are needed the most.
