Blue Lace Agate
The throat centre is the vehicle through which we express
both what we feel in the heart and think in the mind. When
we are afraid to express our thoughts and feelings, the
throat centre can become blocked, a condition that can make
self-expression even more difficult. It can also lead to
a suppression of true thoughts or feelings so that one doesn't
even have to deal with contemplating their expression.
Of the many stones associated with the throat chakra,
Blue Lace Agate is considered the crystal most connected
to the initial opening of this energy centre when its natural
function has become limited and its energy congested.
As an Agate, it is a grounding stone, and when we feel grounded
in our bodies we often feel more comfortable. This state
of ease can allow our energy to flow more freely. Its colour,
a pale blue with white streaks, also relates to its qualities.
Its energy is very gentle. It's a very soothing stone for
gently allowing for the opening of self-expression.
Often, when communications have been withheld, a charge
of anger accumulates, and the longer the communication is
suppressed the greater the anger. It can feel so explosive
that one becomes afraid to communicate.
In such situations Blue Lace Agate reveals its special characteristics.
If you would prefer to express yourself peacefully, and
if you are willing to make a commitment to do so, this stone
can help you to do so. Meditate with it, visualizing yourself
speaking calmly and peacefully. Then program the stone,
and have it close at hand for your actual conversation.
Once the throat chakra is open for communication, you may
find that other blue and blue-green stones will be helpful
for other levels of conversation. You may find, though,
that, from time to time, some words are difficult to speak.
In such instances blue lace agate can once again ease your
