Crystals ~ Sodalite

Psychicvisions Home Page


One of the most challenging aspects of human anatomy is that the brain is divided into two hemispheres: one devoted to rational, linear thinking, the other to imagination and intuition. The human mind, when these two areas are in balance, is both capable of tremendous creativity and the ability to realize that creativity in practical, material terms.
In most Western societies the rational aspects of mind are valued above those of intuition, thus subduing or stifling many creative ideas before they are born into imagination. Malachite and Moss Agate are two stones which help to rebalance the brain and mind.
Sodalite's function is different. It is especially valuable for those who find themselves in states of mental confusion, especially when these states are intensified by emotional turmoil. Very often, when emotions are whirling about in our heads, we are tempted to seize at any decision which seems to promise that it will reduce our distress. Sodalite helps us to resist such temptation.
This dark-blue stone is one of the most grounding of the blue stones and has a natural affinity with the third eye centre (between and slightly above the eyebrows). Its function is to calm the emotions and the mind and to help one view a situation and the choices which may stem from it with objectivity and detachment.
This also means that it can help to quiet any doubts you may have about your ability to make a decision, i.e., it quiets the inner critic.
In addition, it can assist in dissolving old mental, reactive patterns, helping you to realize that you don't have to do things the way you've always done them.
Sodalite is additionally helpful for reviewing a decision once it's been made, and is believed by some to help extricate people from the coils of complicated lifestyles.
If you are faced with a decision, Sodalite is an excellent stone to use in meditation. Place it on your forehead and contemplate the situation on which you are working. Ask for guidance in making the decision. If you feel yourself coming up with old solutions just because they're familiar release then and allow Sodalite to clear the path for new ideas.
