Aside from Amethyst, howlite is also another favorite of mine. The crisp white, the grey veins… just beautiful!
Many people are drawn to this stone, and for good reason. Howlite is a stone for calming upset states of mind and emotions. It decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety, bringing calm and relaxation. Howlite also can decrease anger originating from within or externally.
Spiritually, howlite is a stone of awareness. It can prepare the user or wearer to receive wisdom and attunement from the Higher Self and the Divine, which makes it a great pendulum tool! It is also used for dimensional travel and healthy meditation. It can also be used to release attachments, or cords, linking old emotional pain, from this life or a past life, to the present. Once these attachments are severed, it allows for processing those emotions and bringing peace in those areas.
Howlite is also used to heighten creativity and expand self-expression. Perhaps keeping this stone in your studio or office would be beneficial! Or if you’re going through what they call, ‘writers block’, try wearing this stone and see what you come up with.
If you have trouble sleeping keep this stone at your bedside. It is often used in healing for pain, insomnia, stress, an over active mind, and anxiety. It may just give you the rest you need to feel better in the morning.
