“Much of our experience on the Earth plane is gained from our attempts to transform our dreams and wishes into physical manifestation.”

The silicon dioxide mineral of the Quartz group, and the topic of this article, is citrine. Although chakras and their associated benefits cannot currently be proven scientifically, many believe that humans can learn and grow from such experimentation. According to Robert Simmons, author of “The Book of Stones,” citrine is believed to embody properties that will open the door to enhanced thought, enhanced creativity, and magnified powers of will manifestation.

The trigonal system specimen’s name was derived from the french word from lemon, citron, and was used as a gem as far back 300 BC in places such as Greece and Rome, after being extracted from its homelands in various countries places such as Brazil, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, and France. There are two kinds of citrine: pure and heat treated amethyst. Pure citrine is typically a very pale yellow color as it is derived from iron. Heat treated amethyst, the commercial citrine market leader, and is typically such a deep amber color that it is nearly orange.

Both forms of Citrine stimulate one’s imagination through three of the chakra portals: the second, third, and sixth chakras. The sixth chakra is better known as the third eye chakra. In the third eye chakra, citrine activates the thinking process and enhances mental clarity. It also boosts the third eye chakra’s visionary component, through which inner images appear. This is also where the sexual energy center is located.

The third chakra, also known as the solar plexus chakra, is more balanced with the aid of Citrine. From this balance comes a more focused ability to manifest one’s destiny. This energy is the essence of the grunt work and sacrifices that are integral to achievement, which leads to completing one’s goals. Citrine helps by assisting with the extra boost needed to persist in the face of defeat and reach the other side.

Citrine works in synergy with a large number of stones. Various stone combinations help in various ways, so feel free to experiment and find what works for you. Heliodor, Golden Labradorite, and Imperal Topaz all increase the third chakra, home of one’s will. Zincite, Orange Calcite, and Carnelian have similar results. Stones such as Phenacite, Azeztulite, and Natrolite are favorites for boosting the visionary components of the third eye chakra.

Naisha Ahsian was quoted as saying, “Much of our experience on the Earth plane is gained from our attempts to transform our dreams and wishes into physical manifestation.” This is a statement that really reflects the invaluable nature of confidence, ambition, and a focused free will. Therefore, a good affirmation to say while in the vicinity of Citrine is “I open myself to the inspiration of my creative imagination, and through the strength of my will, aligned with the Divine will, I manifest my dreams.”
