Found in Botswana, Africa, Botswana Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. The color consists of predominantly gentle pinks, browns, and grays.
Botswana Agate is known for its soothing and calming colors and energy. It eliminates and transforms negative energy while revitalizing and stabilizing the auric body. Agate is a lower intensity stone as it carries a quiet, more subtle energy and vibrates at a slower frequency than others. But it is still revered for its grounding and balancing influence. It encourages emotional healing allowing us to be open to eternal love.
For Meditation: While holding your Botswana Agate in your palm, close your eyes and set your intention for this meditation – some suggestions are emotional healing, balancing, centering or grounding. Absorbing the stone’s tranquil and balancing energy, slow your breath flow with each breath becoming longer and slower. As thoughts pop into your mind, feel them, acknowledge them and then let them go. Repeat your affirmations until your mind is clear and you feel re-centered.
Optional mantra: “I am the embodiment of love and compassion.”
