Ruby Birthstone Fairy Ornament - July
Ruby is a powerful stone to shield against negative energy, psychic attack, and energy vampirism, especially of the heart energy.
Working with Ruby one may feel that all sense of limitation has been removed, strengthening courage, joy, leadership qualities and selfless work in all spiritual endeavours.
The Ruby is able to create a strong sense and means of power within oneself, and this needs to be handled in a responsible manner or it may turn to self-importance, anger and possessive thoughts. It helps to guard against accumulating resentment when you are required to care for others. Meditating with a Ruby will open, activate and energise the Root/Base Chakra sending rejuvenating energy through all of the chakras, but it is also quite beneficial for the Heart Chakra.
In ancient times Rubies were used to detoxify the blood, prevent starvation and protection from the plague.
The Ruby is still known to be used to remove toxins from the blood and the entire body. Ruby treats fevers as well as infectious disease. It is said to be extremely beneficial for the heart and circulatory system as it increases blood flow, stimulating the adrenals, kidneys, spleen and reproductive organs. It is also said to help you overcome exhaustion and lethargy replacing them with potency and vigour.
Position: Ruby is traditionally associated with the south area of a home or room. Use its energy to give your life the boost it needs to enhance your standing in the community and within your family.
