"Pargasite can soften even the hardest of hearts. It gently, slowly, removes the wall of protection many have worked years to build. However, Pargasite will not work quickly. It has taken years to build up this defense system around the heart, so Pargasite will work with you, at a pace that is comfortable. There are a lot of issues to face (that wall did not get built over night) work on and release. Pargasite is your gentle support in this healing process. The pale green of Pargasite's energy will surround your heart with the expressing, feeling and sharing of empathy and compassion for self and others.
This is a heart healing crystal to be used for facing, releasing and forgiveness of some of the most powerful experiences in our lives- be it trauma, anger, violence, etc. The things we "hide away" can be safely brought to light with the help of Pargasite, time and an emotional support team. Pargasite will not do it alone, but it can ease the pain.
When holding Pargasite, I hear a song in my head...."this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine...." and indeed what I see next is the same grumpy old man sitting in his chair, except this time, I am given access to the deepest chamber of his heart, where there is a small green light shining.....and building......Deep within this injured grump is a beautiful, generous, kind and loving soul. His light, shining brightly. This is a crystal of hope and healing, love and comfort, gentle guidance and support.
Physically, Pargasite can help with issues of the heart, esophagus, throat and lungs. Carry Pargasite with you throughout the day to keep the "grumps" away and face each moment with a sense of joy, compassion and humor."
