Unakite is considered one of the supreme stones of the heart. Its energetic signature is one of Unity, Harmony, Co-operation and Peaceful Co-Existence. This makes it a perfect stone to hail in, and work effectively with, the energies of spring and the Chinese Astrological Year of the Wooden Sheep.
Unakite is a beautiful combination of Pink Jasper and Green Epidot – two stones that have decided to grow together to achieve more in partnership than they could as individuals. As the name suggests, Unakite encourages humanity to unite in shared purpose and common goals for benefit of All. The year of the Wooden Sheep is an opportune time for partnership – for teaming up with others – for pooling our resources, creativity, passion, talent, skill and vision.
Now is the time to share who you are and what you do with your community andbeyond – perhaps even the entire world. You may find yourself attracting new and helpful people, resources and circumstances. You may be called to expand your work, your education and your sphere of influence. Collaboration is key to any action you take. We are stronger together than we are alone. Ask yourself, who do you need to work with to make the world a better place? It’s time to trust your decisions and abilities so that you can enter into partnership with other people. Who needs to be part of your team? Whose team can you become part of? As in ancient times, community creates can create a better future for All.
If you’re not sure where to begin, the Year of the Wooden Sheep also supports cleansing on all levels – perfect timing for spring-cleaning. You could begin a physical detox regime for your body. You could also utilize this influence to clean and de-clutter your living space. The current energies also support mental and emotional purification. Unakite can help with this too. It can assist the release of deeply held negative emotions in a slow and gentle way. Once the emotions are liberated Unakite begins the task of slowly but surely eliminating negative thought patterns and beliefs, freeing us of the behavioral patterns generated by them. It’s the perfect partner for cleansing at emotional and mental levels.
Now is definitely an ‘out with the old and in with the new’ time to be alive. With a little help from Unakite, you can let go of the person you think you are, and open the way for a new, freer and more empowered you to emerge. It’s a time to be flexible, to entertain all points of view, and to be tolerant and forgiving. We can learn to bend with the wind and to welcome surprise. It’s a time for new directions and new people.
Unakite’s message of unity encourages constant gentleness and nurturing of oneself and others. It promotes kindness, understanding and living together in harmony. Unakite and the Year of the Wooden Sheep supports any effort that brings benefit to the entire community. All things are possible when our focus is on co-creating a future that is good for all life. In fact my sense is that everything we do from this time onward must be good for everyone and everything. Unakite can help us evolve our focus from ‘me’ to ‘we’. It’s a great time for recognizing our similarities, for finding acceptance for others and for closing gaps of understanding that keep us separate from each other.
Unakite is also a stone of vision and expansion. Let it help you to make those changes you know you need to make. Take advantage of that extra energetic help available to you now with the influence of spring and the Year of the Wooden Sheep to begin something new that changes your life. It’s a potent time for taking action and achieving goals. As long as what you are doing has value for people, it has the potential for great success. First, cleanse yourself and your environment to bring you the clarity you need to move forward on your path.
Next, voice your dreams and act on them.
Consistent with its energy of new life and new beginnings, Unakite assists healthy pregnancies and recovery from serious illnesses. It can also help people bounce back from loss, misfortune and disappointment. It is also a wonderful stone for anyone who feels uncertain about the future or feels overwhelmed by their present circumstances.
Try placing a few Unakite stones together in a bowl in your living space. It can bring harmony to your inner terrain and inspire peace and co-operation in your relationships. Once you’ve mastered peaceful co-existence within yourself and with the folks who are currently in your life, new opportunities to collaborate with others will begin to take shape.
Unakite can help us to remember, that we are all brothers and sisters – woven together in a beautiful tapestry of pink-green heart energy. It’s time to come together again. One breath, one heartbeat – it’s more than just a legend…
Unakite blessings to All,
