Best for: Anyone who seeks transformation especially through empowerment, shedding the old and reclaiming personal power.
Like a juice cleanse for your mind, spirit and soul, Kammererite can help to detoxify toxic ideas and emotions so you feel fresh again. Flush away those poisonous thoughts along with your mental blocks and experience a seamless flow of renewed energy. Your trustworthy guide you need to walk out of your inner maze, putting an end to your seemingly endless mental circles. A whole new level of wisdom awaits as you step out of your false fantasy and enter an enhanced reality.
Resembling an imperturbable mystical dragon, Kammererite can offer mental and spiritual protection. Be reassured that you won’t be facing obstacles alone; because you two are an inseparable team and you know it has your back.
Serpentine, which is the green mineral found included with Kammererite, encourages renewal and regeneration akin to a moulting snake; shedding its old skin to welcome its revamped, rejuvenated self. You too, can invite transformation and experience an upgraded version of yourself.
A relatively new found variation of Kammererite (Purple) combined with Serpentine (Green) and Chromite (Black), governs the Crown, Heart and Root chakras altogether. The primary intention/nature/power of this crystal is to be firm with what you want and have your heart and mind be aligned as one.
Kammererite holds a very mysterious and mystical energy that reminds me very much of the dragons. Protective, powerful and bold, it would stop at nothing till the “evil” is gone. Kammererite is about having a firm sense of belonging. Hence, for anything that does not align with or belong to your body or space, it is determined to purge out of your system. This can be stuck patterns, fear, feeling weak (physically or mentally), etc. Ultimately, Kammererite wants to assist you in your mission towards personal empowerment. Your consciousness also has to be willing to transform and change. Remember, anything and everything takes two hands to clap.
I enjoy keeping a piece at my side during consultations as it acts as an invisible shield to deflect any energy that does not resonate with me and push out any toxic energy that should not be in my system. It sends out an energy reminder that I am in control of my power. Meditation wise, I work with Kammererite to remove any residual energy within my system that is no longer beneficial for my highest good. Hold Kammererite in your dominant hand and another stone of your choice in your non-dominant hand. Note that it is important to feel safe in your space. Open the windows, and sit upright when you are ready. Visualise being One with nature, preferably air and/or earth energy. Allow this energy to circulate around your aura from your left to right in a circular motion. You may realise that the energy movement may start to quicken or the colour of the energy may change. When you are ready, direct and send this energy out of your window and ask for the sun (natural light source) to transmute it back into positive energy. Do not stand up immediately. Take deep breaths to recollect and recompose yourself. Visualise and align your chakras back in order. Continue to sit and relax until your body is comfortable to get back up. You should feel light, clear and/or bright after the session. Some may feel tired after the detox. Drink some warm water and take a quick nap if you are able to.
