The Power of Shungite
What is Shungite?
The story of Shungite begins over 2 billion years ago. During the Paleoproterozoic Era, in the now village of Shunga, Karelia, Russia, the precambrian rocks carried some of earths earliest natural oil deposits. Shallow lagoons near a chain of volcanoes in modern- day western Russia were rich in sediments and algae, contributing to the deposit of oil shale and crude oil. As time passed, the culmination of heat and pressure slowly converted into an almost pure form of solid carbon. Today known as: shungite.
Shungite is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline mineraloid that consists of more than 98 weight percent of carbon. While carbon purity is something that makes Shungite extremely special, a discovery in the late 20th century revealed that it carries the carbon molecule “fullerenes”— a hollow, globular molecule, known to possess powerful healing qualities— making shungite more unique still.
Historically, Shungite was used as a water purifier. Russian monarchy often bathed in “mineral waters” in Karelia. They developed their own mineral pools from spring water that had been purified from the shungite- containing streams that it ran through. Today, many Russians still use Shungite both as a water purifier and detoxifier.
How Can Shungite Help YOU?
Shungite's main healing properties are purity and protection. Due to its electricity conducting properties, shungite is known to aid in the blocking of EMF’s, or electromagnetic fields.
Results of radiation from electric devices such as cell phones, laptops, microwaves, etc. are diminished when shungite is placed strategically. While shungite does not interfere with the functionality of electronic objects, it does block out radial output.
Shungite is also used as an elixir. A shungite elixir can be made by simply placing the mineral in water and allowing it to sit a short time as the purifying process takes affect. Drinking the purified water is said to have many beneficial qualities such as an increased rate of healing and cell growth, offering a thorough detox of the body.
Holding and meditating with shungite amplifies its healing properties. It can accelerate the healing of headaches, back pain, blood pressure, inflammation, and muscle pain. The antioxidants in shungite are forceful impacts on health and a fully functioning immune system. Powerful for the spirit, shungite can also combat insomnia, boost energy and reduce stress and anxiety.
How Do I Meditate with Shungite?
Just as shungite properties purify water, meditating with shungite can help purify you. If you feel toxic thoughts and emotions taking a physical toll on your body, or you have unhealthy cycles which stop you from attaining progress in your life, you might want to begin meditating with shungite. While meditating with your shungite, use the stones mantra: “My mind is pure, my spirit is clear”.
