Copper is a useful and versatile metal for both physical and metaphysical healing purposes. It is a strong and effective conductor of energy and enhances the energy of any stones used with it, carrying their energies just the way copper wire carries electricity. Copper bracelets that are used for treating arthritis work by opening the blocked energy flow of which arthritis is a symptom.
Copper has many other healing qualities too. It can strengthen the blood and the female reproductive system. It aids in balancing and strengthening all systems of the human body, also supporting iron in the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin and can assist the body to repair tissues after surgery or injury.
Copper is able to carry the energies of emotions and thoughts very easily and assists one in becoming aware of the unconscious inner dialogue that very often creates our emotional experiences.
On a spiritual level, copper has the ability to teach the ancient ways of balance and respect for the Earth and all who dwell on it, while encouraging experimentation and invention. Copper acts as a conduit between Heaven and Earth, grounding and transferring a wide array of vibrational frequencies from the spiritual to the physical.
As copper oxidises and tarnishes, it develops a patina or film, which – instead of detracting from its energy – actually becomes especially helpful for strengthening its blood oxygenation and improved respiratory system function capabilities.
