How to Use Garnet 

In Meditation

By meditating with garnet, it will help soothe your anxiety and will also help you to discover powerful inner confidence that will help you overcome your fears.

→ A ritual to do with Garnet: Hold the garnet in your non-dominant hand and write down 10 things that you are passionate about. While holding the garnet, ask yourself which of those things brings you the most passion? Which one of these reignites my excitement for life? Circle the one thing you choose. With that one thing in mind, say out loud “i am passionate” 3 times. Place your list in your bedroom with your garnet on top as a reminder to incorporate more of that one thing into your life. 

How to Wear

It has been said that wearing your crystal provides an even closer connection with it as the energies are able to flow right through you.

Wear Garnet to be grounded and secure, as it will uplift you and provide protection. 

For healing crystal bracelets,
Wear your garnet on your left hand to enhance and increase your self-esteem and self-confidence, protect yourself from all kinds of negative energies, raise your willpower, and feel focused and driven. Wearing Garnet on your left hand will also help to invite more passion into your life.

Wear garnet on your right to radiate strong shielding powers to protect your family and loved ones, to release the stored negative vibrations, and to help unblock your Root Chakra.

It is also a common jewel to be worn as pendant by both women and men as a tool for increasing attraction and libido. Wearing a garnet necklace allows the crystal to be close to your heart, helping you to invite more passion and love in relationships.
