Carnelian is fantastic for grounding and anchoring you in the present reality. Carnelian is very useful for overcoming any type of abuse. The stone helps you to trust your perceptions and, most importantly, trusting in yourself.
Meditating with Carnelian removes nonessential thoughts and tunes daydreamers into the NOW. It sharpens concentration and rids of mental lethargy. It calms anger and destroys emotional negativity by replacing it with a love of life.
