Beryllonite shines the light of the Universe directly into the Heart, which then distributes it through the entire body, both physical and energy. Its sparkling energy can enliven the physical body, leaving the user feeling more alert and able to carry on, while it teaches love and compassion, and helps the user to sense the connectedness of all things. Most of all, it reminds us that there is goodness and love in the world, no matter how challenging, dark, and stressful life may feel at the time. Beryllonite reconnects us with Source, and our origins beyond this planet and dimension, so we are better able to recall the reason we are here. Use it to raise your personal vibration, and instil a positive outlook and optimistic approach, whatever life throws at you.
