Agate: (Karen Osborne) Self-Acceptance, Stability, Gentleness, Comfort and Nurturing Agates stand alone as one of the best representatives of motherly love in the Mineral Kingdom. They bring to us, that one great love that so greatly shapes our life, the unconditional love of a mother. Agates are very Earth-like. They form solid, opaque stones in warm Earthy, quiet colours that swirl and blend softly into one other. Agates are considered by many to be common and unremarkable, perhaps because they are plentiful and still very affordable, but to me they are like gold. As soon as they come into my auric field I begin to feel comforted and at peace. Agates emit a most gentle and calm love - a love that is so stable and nurturing and patient – a love that is easy to accept. I have always found Agates to be the gentlest of friends. Their energy is slow and steady and to me it feels like a hug from someone who loves you deeply but has no expectations of you. I call Agate energy “the hug that never ends.” It’s like being held by someone who will never let you down, never drop you and will always support you. Imagine if we all treated ourselves this way? That is the lesson that Agate teaches. It is the best teacher of self-acceptance. It brings us to the realization that we are enough, just as we are. Agate gradually builds self-confidence and strengthens self-concepts. Their peaceful energy brings support to any endeavor. They teach lasting values of reliability and responsibility both inwardly and outwardly. As we learn responsibility to ourselves and the Earth, we begin to attract responsible and reliable people and circumstances into our lives. Agates inspire us to take better care of ourselves and our planet in the most loving and non-judgmental way. It’s like they lead by example, showing us that a commitment to slow and steady progress can allow for maximum development of ourselves and our projects. Agates also help to build our immune systems and develop healthy eating and exercise habits. They do this by bringing us into balance with the Earth and the unconditional, motherly energies that she embodies for all of us. We just feel more like loving and caring for ourselves. Working with Agates helps us to feel good about who we are and to relax into that. It a stone that brings great comfort and is surely a friend that we can all benefit from in times of change.
