Botswana Agate encourages us to be strong and courageous as we face our repressed emotions that continually hold us back from reaching our potential. It offers a shield of protection from depression and the blues, by elevating serene, peaceful energy. Botswana Agate reminds us that we are love and compassion in action. Expressing love and compassion towards one's self is a difficult task for most of us, but using Botswana Agate's energy we find the courage and strength necessary to change our relationship with our self. Until unconditional love radiates from the essence of our being, while negative self perceptions and our self imposed limitations vanish. Once that love is discovered and embraced, we can continue on the path of self discovery towards enlightenment.
