The word most strongly associated with yellow brucite is “gentleness”. Tension melts and is gently released, muscles soften and relax, the mind calms – not necessary qualities most associated with the colour yellow! More typically, it brings soft golden light into the body, working from the Heart and Solar Plexus outwards, creating an inner glow. It clears the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras, again using a soft, gentle touch. Released energy flows down through the soles of the feet and into the Earth to be transmuted into something healthy and positive. Yellow brucite is strongly recommended for those who find some Solar Plexus crystals too powerful or energetic but still wish to work with that chakra.
