Crystals for New Beginnings: Ring Out The Old: Kyanite
The power behind new beginnings, whether it is for a New Year or a new
day, can be found in the strength of our mental attitude. Encouraging
words, affirmations and other tools can keep us along the path we
desire. So engaging crystals as a tool for guidance seems only natural. Love,
abundance, creativity are often the ideas we strive for the most.
Properties: Kyanite is considered the "Earth Stone" due to its soothing earth
tone colors, as well as its grounding and tranquil nature. This is excellent for
surfacing and dissolving old beliefs. Kyanite reminds us that everything which
happens is for a purpose, and that we are ultimately in charge. As we begin to
look at the events of our lives in this perspective we can find that beliefs
which we accepted as fact are brought to the surface.
The healing benefits depend on the color it comes in. Blue Kyanite is most
effective when placed on the Throat Chakra in order to open the throat for
communication and self expression. On the Brow (Third Eye) Chakra, it enhances
psychic images, foresight, consciousness and meditation. Kyanite is used to
answer questions, especially in imagery, such as in vision, dreams or written
interpretations. It brings out our natural ability to manifest things into
reality via thoughts and visualization. Black Kyanite is best used for grounding
and balance at the Root Chakra. This is where it gets its "Mother Earth"
Folk Remedies: This stone is know for restoring energy balance and quickly
creating tranquility due to the fact that it is an energy conduit.
Feng Shui: This stone is most often found in light blue and black, which are
both the colors representing Winter, as well as water. Used in the Center
direction, according to its "Mother Earth" reputation, it is ideal for
grounding, balance and spiritual growth. It is also used in the North to create
success. If you wish to effect change in your life, use this in the direction
you need it most.
History: Kyanite (Al2SiO5) is formed from Andalusite, which recrystallizes when
either a decrease in the temperature or increase in the pressure occurs during
its creation. This splintery stone is most often found in light blue and black
and is a variety of the mineral, Disthene.
