Blue Kyanite – (Throat & Third Eye Chakra) – (Zodiac of Libra, Aries & Taurus)
Kyanite is one of the most refreshing crystals in my collection. Its lightness and cleansing abilities make the energy of the environment feel like a home just after Spring cleaning. This is a very useful stone to wear throughout the day to keep any negativity from affecting your mood.
Science – Kyanite is primarily found in long, bladed crystal form. It is a lovely shade of light to deep blue, but it is also found in a light green color,black, and even orange. This stone is unusual because it has a wide range of hardness. You won’t often see it faceted, because the varying hardness makes it mostly unstable for cutting. However, some specimen are hard enough to cut into stunning faceted pieces.
Historical Significance – The name comes from the Greek word kynos meaning “blue.” Like Aquamarine, its water blue color made this a popular stone for sailors to wear for luck.
Metaphysical Attributes – Kyanite is a crystal that never accumulates negativity and never needs to be cleansed! This stone will instantly cleanse and activate the chakras and purify the aura. Kyanite is an extremely high vibration gem and helps lifts one’s vibration to a higher level. This is an excellent stone to wear to protect from the negative energies and influences of others. If you live or work in a toxic environment, Kyanite will keep your energy clear and mood lifted. When placed around a room or home, it will lift the energy of the entire environment and ensure positive, peaceful sleep.
Kyanite’s high vibration is also an excellent tool for awakening intuition, increasing psychic abilities, and improving lucid dreaming. It helps one connect with Inner Intuition and Spirit Guides. This is the perfect crystal for settling into a deep, calm meditation. If you are feeling distracted, or not in the mood to meditate, Kyanite will help you relax and fall into a focused state.
This gemstone is also associated with the Throat Chakra, so it helps with self-expression and being able to speak your Truth without fear. Kyanite helps you to absorb the information from your Guides and the Universe and use it to speak wisely and offer guidance. It helps to bring disagreements to a calm and rational place for honest discussion.
Physical Effects – This stone is said to help with all issues of the throat, so would work well with sore throats, strep, and laryngitis.
Practice Mantra – Sit in seated meditation, holding the Kyanite stone in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine yourself surrounded by a bright blue light with golden shimmering edges. Repeat these words. “I am Grounded and Confident. I am ready to Open up to the Wisdom of the Universe.”
Alternately, hold an Kyanite mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
