Like all pale-blue stones, Celestite relates to communication
and creativity. Its special attributes are its ability to
enhance peacefulness and mental clarity.
The quality of its peacefulness can best be compared to
the feeling we have when we gaze quietly at the sky. It's
a feeling of having transcended all earthly cares and of
being in communication with spirit.
Celestite helps us to quiet the circular and repetitive
worries that so often fill our mind, whether we are worried
about what has happened in the past or anticipating some
future unpleasantness. These concerns make it difficult
for us to be open to any new ideas and prevent us from being
in true communication with ourselves. Celestite helps to
calm the over-active mind and teaches us how to be receptive.
When we learn to release expectations, be they positive
or negative, we develop a new kind of understanding which
is based on trust, rather than on certainty. With this level
of trust we are able to stop filtering out information which
doesn't agree with what we "know," and learn to receive
without judgment new insights.
Because of its peaceful energy, this crystal also helps
to cool anger and to relieve tension. In meditation it is
most effectively placed on the throat chakra,
although you can get some very interesting results by placing
it on the third eye.
One cautionary note: this crystal should not be exposed
to direct sunlight.
