Many practitioners like to use sphalerite for the spiritual and emotional healing aspects. However, we can’t dismiss the stone’s influence on our physical bodies. Athletes and those of us that are physical laborers have a lot to gain from this precious gem.

According to some healers worldwide, using sphalerite can encourage the replenishment of oxygen in our blood, increasing the lymphatic system’s efficiency. These benefits are excellent for speeding up our muscle recovery, and they can drastically reduce pain.

One theory is that wearing the stone during times of demanding physical output can set us up for a gentler recovery process.

But wait, there’s more. Many healers use sphalerite to help themselves fend off or ward off diseases. Apparently, the stone strengthens our immune system. It fine-tunes it to target any potential invaders at the first sign of trouble.

That being said, it’s believed that our chances of coming down with common colds, headaches, and other minor pains are significantly reduced. However, the same is said for severe and serious disorders. In addition to our blood and immune health, some believe that the crystal’s healing properties can improve eye health and boost our nervous system.

Of course, the stone isn’t going to produce change out of anywhere; instead, it brings us the clarity we need to help us figure out what to do and how to get there.

For anyone struggling with discouraging thoughts of self-doubt and sabotage, a sphalerite ring or necklace can help push through.


Sphalerite Crystals and The Human Mind

I mentioned fantasy earlier in this article. That’s because sphalerite can help us distinguish truth or reality from fantasy. That said, this stone protects us by helping us better protect ourselves. The grounding properties of this stone keep us from being reeled in with lofty meaningless promises and self-deceit.

Sphalerite can help us avoid getting caught up in things that are unrealistic and even that which are impossible. The gemstone keeps us present, with a clear mind, so we can see what’s truly valuable in our lives, and work toward securing and protecting such gifts.

This incredible crystal is energizing. It’s strongly connected to the earth’s energy, which helps balance any mental or spiritual overstimulation. Stones with energizing properties help balance overactive minds and help us conquer intrusive and defeating thoughts. Sphalerite reminds us that when our mind is restless, we can get up and start moving to bring a calming effect.

Sphalerite crystals contain fire and earth energy, which make them an excellent choice for stimulating our passions, expanding our confidence, and engaging creativity. Pair sphalerite with carnelian or any other fiery crystal to enhance its effectiveness.


Sphalerite Crystals and The Human Spirit

On spiritual levels, sphalerite means harmony. This is because it can balance out energies to help us become more well-rounded. All of us have both masculine and feminine energies, and when one or the other goes out of balance, using this crystal can change our thinking. Bringing it a step further, it can cause our actions to change too.

Masculine and feminine energies are thought to be in all of us regardless of who we were born and how we were raised. The stone isn’t about aligning ourselves with a specific cultural or gender-specific role. Instead, it’s about finding the balanced equilibrium we need to assess and handle any situation with a clear mind and whole spirit.

Sphalerite is a balancing crystal that brings a wealth of healing to our entire being. It harnesses the power to energize yet calm us. This gemstone is a true gift for our mind, body, and spirit.


Sphalerite Affirmations

Have you ever wanted more success and fortune in your life? Did someone give negative feedback about your work or tell off-color jokes during the meeting? Well, if this has happened to you then there’s no need for shame because affirmations are here! Affirmations will help build wealth and success while crystals can release negativity that might be holding back progress in other areas of your life.  Sphalerite crystal affirmations are helpful tools when combined together as one supports the other and grows stronger each time we use them.

Affirmations are a great way to change your mindset and improve self-esteem. Make sure you use them in conjunction with Sphalerite, which will give you even more amazing results!


Sphalerite Crystals and Chakras

The 7 chakras are a person’s internal energy centers and they’re aligned vertically near the spine. Energy enters your body through what we call “head” (heaven) or base(earth). The seven main points of intersection where these forces mingle create different patterns which can be seen as vibrant colors within our own being; each producing its own signature color-coded aura to represent health concerns such as stress levels, moods etc… These vortexes were created so that all might share both physical space.  The chakras are in constant interaction with one another. They cannot really be separated, and serve as a balance to your entire being – both physical aspects like emotions or personality traits but also more abstract ones such as thoughts about yourself (think: beliefs).

Two extra chakras have recently been discovered by ancient yogic studies; the Earth Star Chakra and Soul-Star Chi. I have included a brief description of these in my page for you to learn more about them!


Sphalerite Crystals and Auric Bodies

  • Physical
  • Etheric
  • Astral
  • Mental
  • Picture


Human beings have seven bodies, one physical and six nonphysical. The six unseen bodies are known as auras.

The physical body and the six nonphysical bodies are interconnected with each other. The health of any or all auras contributes toward the overall physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of a person.

Auras, also known as energy bodies, are affected by all aspects of your life and the energy that feeds them comes from internal and external sources.  You’ll need high-quality prana or chi flowing into them to ensure the health of these energy bodies.

Physical Body

  • this is the body that you live in and is linked to the Base Chakra.

Etheric Body

  • a blueprint for the physical body and is made up of vibrating energy.  It’s linked to the Sacral Chakra.

Astral Body

  • your emotions reside here. It is comprised of different colors that are constantly changing based on how you feel.  Emotional experiences are also stored in the astral body and is linked to the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Mental Body

  • is made up of two parts, the lower and the higher. The lower mental body is linked to the solar plexus chakra, while the higher mental body is linked to the heart chakra.
    The lower mental body is where you do your everyday thinking. It is the mind that you use to reason, form mental arguments, create thought forms, and memorize things. The lower mental body is tied to your personality.   For example, thinking negatively will eventually permeate into the physical body.  Therefore changing your negative thought patterns can often change your mental health for the better.

As your spirituality develops you’ll raise your consciousness and it is through this pathway you’ll be able to tap into the One Mind.  The “One Mind” contains all information.  By opening your higher mental body you’ll receive moments of knowledge that flow to you.
