I can’t express enough, the importance of ensuring you take time for yourself in establishing moments of clarity to support sound judgment while addressing challenging issues.

Wisdom is a Virtue
Wisdom is something we should all strive to possess. As the essence of wisdom is a culmination of smart thinking and life experience; displaying a methodical approach to determining course of action supports a greater sense of confidence and closure to major and minute issues. People tend to seek guidance from those they feel invoke wisdom, for assistance in matters in which they may be struggling. Trust is a positive result connected to the action of seeking the knowledge of someone who shows balanced thinking by way of the embodiment of wisdom.
I would describe Aquamarine as a stunning symbol that personifies the existence of wisdom with the attributes of knowing how to yield it. For those who strive for wisdom, understand that the journey of exercising the giving of guidance, and counsel to be an important responsibility and an ongoing art of goodness. You see, the beauty of coming from a place of wisdom cultivates the ability to sense wrong doing and/or wicked intent within someone’s words and/or actions. The lifting of the veil of those who wish to do and/or speak of exacting harm; is a helpful and strategic method for navigating around treacherous acts…and with that, the Aquamarine birthstone is a strikingly beautiful token in illustrating wisdom as a becoming virtue.
Overcome Wicked Intent
Wow, such a powerful concept, and yet not always easy to accomplish. Being mindful of those who wish to speak or do harm can save you a ton of heartache. Unfortunately, the range of wrong-doing knows no bounds. Wrong-doings are often projected directly. However, there are many ways in which they are attempted covertly. Having life experience of identifying and addressing issues & concerns that arise, serves as a training ground for the capability of handling and overcoming the intent of nefarious acts, as they may occur. Therefore, the relationship between life experience to the identification and address of wicked intent results in the ability to share helpful tips, and extensive advice to others in their quest of overcoming wicked intent.
I feel it quite interesting how a birthstone with such a peaceable image is believed to help the wearer overcome evil doings. Although, it is a great show of coequal symmetry; this alluring gem gives a sense of empowerment through its simplistic presence.
