Ideas on how to use Garnet in your practice:
Put music, drumming, chanting, etc on (whatever helps you best meditate) and then cleanse your working space. Surround your space with garnet, selenite and black tourmaline. Sit or lay however is comfortable for you and drop into a meditative state. You can also hold garnet while you do this, focus on remembering your past lives. The garnet will help :)
Wear as jewelry (and cleanse often) to help you with anything listed under the magickal correspondences.
Use in healing rituals, especially those that concern your heart, sexuality, emotions, sexual health, immune health, endocrine health, energy levels, heart or lung health. This is a great time to empower jewelry with garnet in it so you can wear your magick.
Sleep with garnet in a sachet near or under your pillow for help dreaming of past lives.
Use to empower your chakras, especially your root and heart.
This has been Cillian, as always, at your service.
