Shungite is a complex "crystal" and is from Russia, near the village of Shunga.
Shungite clears the energies of the entire body and opens one to receive spiritual Light. Shungite works to cleanse and align all the particles of the body so that they are open to rapid conjoining with the Light. Shungite aids ungrounded people to better connect with the earth. It provides an aura of psychic protection, primarily because of the alignment it facilitates.
Shungite is a stone of truth. Shungite dispels negativity and brings in so much Spiritual Light that one immediately feels the unpleasant sensation of disharmony if a negative or false thought or statement is introduced.
The clearing influence of Shungite tends to dispel one's self-limiting, self-harming or self-defeating habitual patterns.
On an emotional level it is excellent for letting go of deep seated feelings of fear, guilt or shame. Shungite's purifying influence can rid one of negative emotional patterns. It generates a feeling of emotional rebirth. In addition, it is said that Shungite offers protection from EMF (Electromagnetic Frequencies).
Shungite is also excellent for anyone who works in a healing profession or is in a stressful environment as it helps to assist with the creation of healthy boundaries.
Affirmation: I open myself to absolute purification, and to the entry of the Light into every atom of my being.
