Aventurine helps calm and relax fiery emotions, allowing one to be less affected by external influences and to be more in control and at peace within oneself. It provides better focus and concentration, and lends the courage needed to take an honest look at how one’s thoughts and actions have affected their current reality, and how best to move forward in improving or continuing those patterns. The Metaphysical power of Aventurine will activate and cleanse the throat and third eye chakra. This is the reason meditating with it allows us to connect with our inner self and recognize our own psychic abilities.
