Cinnabar resonates at a frequency that burns through limitations and allows one to mold reality to one’s will. It is a stone of alchemy and magic, allowing one to access the underlying energy of creation and utilize that energy to shift reality.
Cinnabar strongly activates the root and second chakras, stimulating the kundalini energy and encouraging the flow of chi through the body.
It is also a stone of prosperity and can assist one in learning how to bring energy into form. Because of Cinnabar’s ability to manifest energy into physical form and to stimulate the flow of energy throughout the body, it has the effect of stimulating intuitive and psychic abilities as well. It can be used to enhance the perception of subtle energies.
