Helps us ground and energize the lower chakras; brings stability, protection and containment for the second chakra; helps us become more aware of the energy and information we are sending and receiving at this level, so we can adjust our boundaries accordingly.
This essence restores emotional and sexual integrity when the expression of these has been compromised or misaligned by emotional pain and trauma. It is good for those who are always feeling vulnerable and reactive to everything that is going on around them and as a result may feel victimized by their circumstances.
We often deal with this kind of pain and trauma by expanding beyond our normal boundaries, which may not have been that functional to begin with. Being in this over-expanded state is exhausting and the longer it continues, the more vulnerable we feel.
It is difficult to repair our boundaries, and build up the capacity to contain our emotional energy, when we spend most of our focus and effort just dealing with what is coming in and monitoring our reactions to it. Red Quartz brings strength to the lower chakras and helps us contract our energetic boundaries. This enables us to relax, calm down and create a buffer of neutrality. From this neutral place we can learn to nurture a non-reactive response or choose to not respond at all, depending on the dynamics of our situation.
The lesson of this essence is that we cannot expect conditions outside of us to provide the safety and emotional stability we need. Nor can we find safety in another person if we don’t feel it inside of ourselves. Red Quartz reminds us of what it feels like to be safe and secure in our physical bodies. As we strengthen these qualities within they will be mirrored more strongly by our surroundings and by those we attract to us.
