We live in a society where every other day, there seems to be new special on TV or breaking news online about yet another food or product that’s been classified as a carcinogen, another reason to fear our cellphones and worry about what’s really in our drinking water. It’s no wonder that we’ve grown health-obsessed! Yet many of us are virtually unaware that working with powerful minerals and stones is a fantastic, simple and affordable solution to warding off illnesses caused by free radicals and toxins. One such stone is Shungite, which has been used by Russians for centuries but has just recently come into the spotlight for being an extremely powerful tool for healing and purification.
Shungite is a relatively rare stone: it’s only been found in certain areas of Russia, and it contains powerful potential antioxidants called Fullerenes. Unlike other antioxidants (like Vitamin C), Fullerenes remains intact even while magnetizing and destroying up to several dozen free radicals, and this amazing mineral has been shown to quickly neutralize poisons within the body. When injected into the body, Fullerenes have also been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect and the ability to inhibit the reproduction of the HIV virus, cancer cells and other pathogens.
The incredible healing properties of the Fullerenes within Shungite make this an important gemstone to have in your personal collection. Every day, we’re exposed to an enormous amount of free radicals, toxins and electromagnetic radiation that can cause potentially fatal diseases. Commuting to work, eating processed foods, working with computers and even talking on the phone put us at risk for damaging our health over time. Cell phones, in particular, are a growing cause for concern, as many of us use them for hours every single day – despite how scientists and biologists have declared a possible link between increased cell phone use and the rise of fatal brain tumors within the last decade.
The scary truth is, there’s no getting away from being exposed to these toxins, radiation and free radicals unless you decide to go the way of Henry David Thoreau and live out on Walden Pond for the rest of your days. But most of us want to live happy, successful lives among others; many of us are avid fans of the nightlife and entertainment you can get living in a big city, even though city dwellers are at a significantly higher risk than suburbanites and country folk for being affected by radiation and air pollution. That’s where a stone like Shungite comes into play: this stone not only heals your body from toxins, but it also acts as a shield from free radicals, particularly electromagnetic radiation.
One of the best uses for Shungite is purifying dirty water. Charging water with Shungite is even more powerful than using a substance like activated charcoal! Believe it or not, even water filters (like Brita brand filters) don’t always get the job done when it comes to purifying your water. The dirt, pollution and chemicals that slip through these filters would surprise you. (And remember, for goodness sake – stop drinking tap water!) Keeping several pieces of Shungite or a Shungite pyramid near your electronic devices is an excellent way to absorb electromagnetic radiation from your work space and environment. And as a rule, always put your cellphone on speaker phone whenever possible.
You can also meditate with Shungite in order to reap the full benefits of this stone. Here’s a healing exercise to use with Shungite:
Step 1: Breathe in and out, calmly counting down your breaths from 20 until you’re centered. If you’re looking for an all-over body/chakra cleanse, lie down and place a piece of Shungite on your pelvic area. For a specific health-related issue, rest in a comfortable position and place the stone(s) on any areas of your body causing pain or potential illness. (Frequent cell phone user? Place the stone on the side of your head where you usually hold your phone!)
Step 2: Close your eyes and relax, listening to the sounds of your own breathing. Begin to focus all of your energy and attention into the area causing you pain, or start to create a visualize of all of the toxins and chemicals in your body flowing directly to your Root chakra.
Step 3: Now, I want you to picture the stone absorbing all of these harmful chemicals, sucking them up and magnetizing them, leaving your Root Chakra (or the afflicted area of your body) glowing with strength and light. On each exhale, feel yourself dispelling any harmful chemicals and negative energy from your body.
Step 4: Finish the exercise only when you feel calm, grounded and secure. Come out of the meditation on a few deep breaths or an affirmation: “I am healthy, strong and powerful.”
