I tried meditating with this Bloodstone to get a feel for its metaphysical properties. I immediately felt its powerful energy as I held it in the palm of my left hand near my base chakra. The energy vibrations soon moved throughout the entire lower half of my body.
After about 10 minutes, I felt a calm self-confidence and clarity of trust and loyalty to my inner knowing. I resolved to stay true to my current life path no matter what the cost, before I realized it was the Bloodstone’s energy instigating that resolve.
While Bloodstone might contain too much energy for my sensitive body, it was nevertheless a very calming energy. I nearly fell asleep while meditating with it.
