However, its role is not limited to giving us sleep. Throughout your night, you will be spared negative waves and therefore bad dreams.

As for dreams, malachite is not just a “blocker” for nightmares. It also allows easier interpretation of dreams upon waking.

Malachite also plays an important role on the heart chakra. To better understand its usefulness, it is important to know what the heart chakra is.

Several elements intervene in human existence and affect you emotionally. These include romantic breakups, the loss of a loved one, situations of disappointment in a person. These events can cause the heart chakra to close. Don't worry, it is possible to remedy this closure.

To this end, there are two main means. The first is to make a clean slate of the past. So you try to empty your mind of all those events that have caused you harm and pain. Once this feat is successful, your chakra opens again.

When you are unable to open your chakra in this way, you can do it gradually with malachite. Yes, the latter allows the opening (or rather the reopening) of the chakra. In doing so, it helps you to have confidence in yourself again and to open up without fear to the outside world.

The virtues of malachite on a physical level

Malachite is very effective in the treatment of pain. It gets this property from its composition. The high copper content makes it a very powerful anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic.

You can use malachite to combat pain related to nerves, joints and muscles. Its use is very simple. When the pain is located in a specific location, simply place the stone on the part of your body where the pain comes from.

Malachite also serves as a remedy for several diseases. Indeed, when you feel a migraine, or when you have a fever, malachite could make these different symptoms disappear. But his role does not stop there. Above all, it initiates a process of healing or, rather, self-healing.

Combined with other stones (such as amethyst, quartz, lapis lazuli or agate), its effects become almost miraculous. In fact, most semi-precious stones will find synergy with malachite.

The connection between malachite and the heart chakra

When we talk about chakras, we refer to the different energy centers present in the body. It is through these energy centers that vital energy passes. This energy also contributes strongly to the balance of the different chakras between them. In short, every human being has a set of seven different chakras which contribute to stability within the being by ensuring harmony between body and mind.

The chakras are distinguished by the area where they are located. Regarding the heart chakra, it is located in the middle of the shoulder blades in the sternum area (actually, in front of the heart).

From this location, it plays its role wonderfully. It is the basis of the joyful sensations that a person experiences. If it is the heart chakra, it is undoubtedly the chakra at the origin of romantic feelings.

It allows us to unite with others through love. However, this love must first begin with that of one's own person. So, when a person has a harmonized heart chakra, they should be able to feel unconditional love for themselves. She must also be able to experience a set of feelings that highlights the interest she has for others. It then becomes very easy to express yourself emotionally and to be in harmony with your whole being because of the joy you are filled with. This description is correct, but if you still want to learn more about this chakra, here is a guide produced by the site which will teach you everything there is to know about it.

In short, sometimes the heart chakra is not balanced. In this situation, there are several elements that make it possible to notice this. When the heart chakra is unbalanced, on the one hand, the person concerned shows excessive love towards others. She is ready to give everything to the point of forgetting herself. In return, she only wants attention or love.

This love expressed by this person is conditional. Still in the order of the manifestations of the unbalanced chakra, the person can show great disproportionate pride in their own person. She is therefore full of her personality. Only his being counts. This person is closed to any possibility of opening up to others and forgiving the outside world.

In short, if you or a loved one matches this description of an unbalanced heart chakra, know that the virtues of malachite could easily help you resolve this problem!
