Apache Tear is excellent for piercing into deep issues to help to release those emotional wounds. It spiritually aids you in forgiveness of self and others. It can been used to comfort in times of grief by metaphorically "shedding" the tears for you in times of sorrow, allowing for true understanding of the situation of distress. By lessening the sorrow it allows one to see the bigger picture to get true insight and acceptance. It also promotes a forgiving attitude and a release of grievances which have been held against another. The Apache Tear stimulates spontaneity and facilitates the removal of barriers which are limiting.
