It is true that Alexandrites are stones of joy, and for that reason they ought to be taken seriously. These stones have a connection to Source energies of the higher dimensions, where the atmosphere is most rapturous. However, one must be careful to do more than just enjoy the happy feelings.
Alexandrite’s window to the ecstasies of the higher realms can and should be the springboard to inner exploration. Alexandrite invites one on a quest into the Self. It can help one realize that the joy of the celestial realms is also simultaneously here at every moment, and one’s reality depends greatly upon the levels at which one chooses to receive.
Alexandrite teaches us to take in all energies that come to us, to transmute them into such harmony and beauty as is possible, and to do this with the inner resilience of a commitment to joy. This commitment, with the assistance of Alexandrite’s link to the higher realms, makes us into sources, rather than mere receivers, of joy.
