The gem Bloodstone has been known to be used magically for at least 3000 years. It is recognized as assisting the magician gain quick control over negative spirits, as well as guarding the bearer against deceptions and from being cheated by others. The Ancient Egyptians used this stone to appear to make all words spoken to be believable. It can also be used to dispel general states of bewilderment, confusion, and obscure thoughts, assisting one toward the direct union with the Divine through deep contemplation, intense meditation and love.
Traditionally Bloodstone is told to assist in casting spells as well as predicting the future by causing extreme meteorological events such as winds, storms, thunder and lighting, which appear to announce the coming events. This spells power was said to be enhanced by placing the stone in water and setting the water in direct sunlight.
As with any magic, one does not posses the right to deliberately attempt to control another’s day, or destiny with magic. It is a universally known truth that the backlash from such an action would not truly be worth the effort. However if the spell or cast is favorable, and one believes they are in the right in doing so-this being not just the opinion of the caster– and if one is sincerely willing to accept responsibility for any repercussion or wrong actions as well as then repairing those wrong doings, then a Bloodstone can assist powerfully in this type of magical workings. It is especially useful in Goddess rituals, as well as for exploring past lives, specifically in dreamwork.
Bloodstone in a cash register draws money towards the merchant, carried in a pocket/purse or worn, the Bloodstone attracts wealth to it’s bearer.
