Serpentine is one of the most powerful stone allies to bring body, mind, and energy bodies into a “holy” alignment that connects one with the angelic realms and opens one to the greater experience with the Divine. Its higher vibrational frequencies clear, heal, and open chakras, releasing blocks, stagnation, and trauma of the past and present. It channels these energies from above down through the chakra column, grounding one into the consciousness of Earth.
Serpentine calls to the kundalini energy sleeping at the base of the spine and invites it to begin its journey of awakening. Serpentine energy is a bridge that connects us to the forces of the natural kingdom, allowing us to access the higher intelligence of nature, Earth, and the Elemental Kingdom. Serpentine is also a powerful healer of the physical body, bringing balance where imbalance exists. It brings stability to the emotional body, dissolving old patterns of the past and guiding one to overcome self-imposed limitations. It calms the intellect and resurrects our motivation and trust, freeing us from the fear of change and our personal power and abilities.
In healing, Serpentine is believed to assist healing with general imbalances, cancer, diabetes, immune system, lungs, stomach, and intestines. Eases anger and stress, and brings feelings of calm and well-being.

Black Onyx is a stone of inner strength, protection, and grounding. It strengthens by inspiring self-discipline and the uprooting of repetitive negative behaviors. It protects by absorbing and transmuting negative energy and repelling invasive frequencies. It is an excellent grounding stone that teaches us, energetically, how to connect with Earth energies so that we receive the benefit of the calm, focus, and balance one experiences that results when we are appropriately connected to the consciousness of Gaia/Earth. Black Onyx can be the catalyst for transformation because of its ability to bring us into greater alignment with higher dimensional frequencies and to crack open the blocks within “mind” to help us perceive inner truth, making it possible to see ourselves as we truly are. It is an amazing guide, teaching “right use of power” as we grow spiritually, and encourages emotional balance, which is key to awakening the deeper consciousness of heart.
In healing, Black Onyx is believed to be useful for strengthening bones, feet, and physical strength, and easing disorders associated with blood, heart, and ears. It may also be beneficial to help with hearing problems, ulcers, glaucoma, and epilepsy.
