A friend of mine recently gave me a lovely cube of pyrite (fool’s gold) as a belated Christmas gift, and for some reason I’ve taken to sleeping with it.
It’s heavy and solid and fits nicely in the palm, with “crispy” clean edges that get my synesthesia all worked up.
Pyrite is a very grounding stone, and I thought it might help with my base chakra issues, and encourage manifestation and abundance.
It also resonates with the solar plexus chakra, for stronger willpower and clearer thinking.
And who couldn’t use a little of that?
Here’s an article with more information on the properties of pyrite, if it interests you:
I’ve been finding that when I do sleep with it, I’ve been having even more vivid dreams than usual, and they have the quality of “learning” dreams – I feel as though I’ve been in a meditative state all night, and that information is being imparted.
I’ve even had dreams that provided some interesting business ideas!
Pyrite is also supposed to energize not only your person, but any space that you place it in, so I’m keeping it on my desk when I’m not sleeping with it.
Have any of you tried sleeping with your crystals? What’s your favorite stone to wear or work with? Please share!
