Pink Sapphire might also be rightly called ‘pale Ruby,’ and energetically it appears as a softer, lighter version of Ruby’s passionate emotional intensity. Pink Sapphire stimulates the gentle emotions of love, forgiveness, acceptance and release. Pink Sapphire holds the pattern of the power of vulnerability. It encourages one to be yielding and pliable, like the willow. The strength it engenders is the strength of resilience. It is an ideal stone of emotional and psychic protection for situations in which one does not have the authority to direct events, but from which one cannot simply depart. The willow lasts longer in a high wind than does the oak, and Pink Sapphire allows one to weather the storms of life without damage. It also assists in healing the wounds of past emotional traumas, and it facilitates compassion for others, even those who have wronged us. Pink Sapphire evokes the energy of the heart and conjoins it with the power of the disciplined mind. It is an excellent stone for bringing heart and mind into balance and coherence with one another. Pink Sapphire teaches the lessons of appreciation and gratitude, reminding us that love is its own reward.
