Shungite is a unique mineral that is believed to have powerful healing properties. It is a black, lustrous stone that is found in only one place in the world: the Shunga region of Karelia, Russia. For centuries, shungite has been used by the indigenous people of Karelia for its healing properties. Today, it is used in various forms for its purported ability to purify water, protect against electromagnetic radiation, and promote physical and emotional healing.
One of the key properties of shungite is its ability to purify water. It is believed that shungite can remove harmful substances from water, such as bacteria, viruses, and heavy metals. In fact, shungite is sometimes added to water filters to enhance their effectiveness.
Shungite is also believed to have the ability to protect against electromagnetic radiation. This is because it contains a unique form of carbon called fullerenes, which are believed to absorb and neutralize the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation from devices such as cell phones, computers, and Wi-Fi routers.
In addition to its purifying and protective properties, shungite is also believed to have healing properties. It is said to promote physical healing by boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation, and improving circulation. It is also believed to have emotional healing properties, helping to reduce stress and anxiety and promoting a sense of calm and balance.
Shungite can be used in various forms, including as a stone to carry with you, as jewelry, or as a powder or elixir to add to water. When using shungite for its healing properties, it is important to choose high-quality, authentic shungite to ensure maximum effectiveness
3 ways to use Shungite:
For a simple ritual, we recommend wearing a piece of shungite jewelry. "Any time you're feeling overwhelmed, bring your attention to the place where the stone is making contact with your physical body, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Breathe in for a count of four, hold for a count of four, and then exhale for a count of four. This deep, rhythmic breathing will bring you back to your center and will help create stillness in your mind."
2. To ground yourself
We suggest using shungite for grounding by sitting in a chair and holding a piece of shungite in your lap, feet firmly planted on the ground. "As you feel the weight of the shungite in your hands, visualize roots extending from the shungite into your root chakra, and then extending downward through the soles of your feet and deep into the earth," she says.
And lastly, to connect with the ancient wisdom of shungite, you can place some dried lemon verbena leaves and your shungite in a small pouch and tuck it into your pillowcase. "Before you go to sleep, set the intention to experience and remember a meaningful dream that will provide you with guidance about something that needs to be healed in your life," she notes. "It's said that shungite holds ancient energy, wisdom, and information, so it's the perfect stone to help you uncover the cosmic messages that come through for you from the Akashas."
