Lodestone, or Magnetite, is magnetic and has a powerful positive-negative polarity. Lodestone will attract and repel, energize and sedate. When used in pairs, one lodestone can be used to draw positive energy while the other is used to repel negative energy. Lodestone also aids in telepathy, meditation, and visualization. It provides for a balanced perspective and trust in your own intuitions. As it is a magnet, it attracts love, commitment, and loyalty. Psychologically, Lodestone can be used to alleviate negative emotions such as fear, anger, grief, and over-attachment, and bring in positive qualities such as tenacity and endurance. It points out how to remove yourself from detrimental situations and promotes objectivity. This stone balances the intellect with the emotions and brings inner stability. In Hoodoo practices, Lodestone is held in high regard as a powerful amulet and good luck charm because its strong magnetic influences are thought to attract power, favors, and gifts. Single lodestones will draw money or luck, while paired "male" and "female" lodestones are used to attract a lover and secure mutual fidelity.
