The water element has introspective qualities; it is often referred to as The Philosopher. This element fosters modesty and sensibility. Water is associated with wisdom, stamina, endurance, and transformation. It is quiet until overwhelmed; too much activity, overdoing anything and too much focus on the outer world will deplete water and leads to imbalance. When water is out of balance we will have difficulty with social situations, trusting, and being confident; we will become withdrawn and detached or will lose a sense of self-awareness. The Water element resembles the intuitive energy in a giving way and is the most changeable of the four elements. It is easy to sense the Water element's many moods, fluctuating from gentleness to very powerful emotions that are completely out of control - a constant change between settled and unsettled weather.
WHAT'S IN THE WATER BOX?
Labradorite is named for where it was found in Labrador, a Canadian province on the Isle of Paul. Inuits once called labradorite a "fire stone" and would use powdered forms to help cure ailments. According to Inuit legend, a warrior saw the Northern Lights trapped in the rocks and struck them with his spear to free some of the lights. Labradorite is considered a tremendously spiritual stone, especially helpful for people who tend to overwork. It helps an individual regain energy while aiding the body and spirit in healing itself. In the metaphysical world, labradorite is considered one of the most powerful protectors. The gemstone creates a shield for auras and protects against the negativity of the world. Labradorite is said to temper the negativity within ourselves as well. Labradorite is known for its changing colors, so it is no surprise this gemstone is known as a stone of transformation, enhancing the strength of will and inner worth.
Amazonite stones are also thought to have tremendous healing abilities. Similar to jade, amazonite is associated with money, luck, and overall success. It's known as the "gambler's stone," encouraging good luck and fortune. Amazonite is said to have a soothing effect on the nervous system. Since the nervous system controls our emotions a great deal, this stone is said to soothe tense and aggravated situations and to enhance love. Since this stone is associated with the throat and heart, it is best when worn as a necklace near these areas. Amazonite is said to bestow truth, honor, and integrity to its wearer. It is used to treat fatigue, trauma, or anything else that may take energy away from a person.
