Apatite – (Throat Chakra) – (Zodiac of Gemini)
The first Apatite I ever saw was a stunning unique blue color that took my breathe away. I was fascinated by it. This is a stone that supports those seeking a deeper and more beneficial spiritual life. It’s such a soothing and peaceful stone, so I often sit with it when I need guidance.
Science – Greek word apatao – ‘to deceive’ or ‘cheat,’ because it can be found in so many colors that it is easy to confuse Apatite with other gemstones. It comes in many colors, but the most commonly found are deep aqua blue (like in the picture above), light green and golden yellow.
Metaphysical Attributes – This gemstone deepens our intuitive reception. It also connects the information we gathered in past, and future, lives to provide us with vast Inner Wisdom. This gemstone also enables us to transition this inner knowledge into the physical world. This information sharing could be via lecture, teaching, writing, art, or anything that can connect this wisdom with others. Regular meditation and journaling with Apatite can help you work with past-life and karmic issue that may be preventing you from living your fullest life.
Apatite also lifts our energy and encourages extroversion. This is great for social settings, especially when you want to communicate your insights and are performing humanitarian work. This is a great aid when you are teaching spiritual topics or leading meditations. Apatite helps us realize the importance of spiritual pursuits and Love. We are drawn to lift others up and brighten their lives. This stone helps us feel the “Oneness” of humanity.
Apatite stimulates the intellect. As mentioned before, it helps brings ideas into reality. It allows us to see the truth of a situation, invites logical thinking, and connects our intellect to the Heart; therefore, reducing negative thinking and feelings toward others.
Physical Effects – This gemstone is said to boost energy when one is recovering from and illness or injury. It is also purported to ease all types of bone pain, such as growing pains in children, or after broken bones.
Practice Mantra – Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Apatite 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 a pale green light shining down on you from the sky. It feels cool and cleansing. Repeat this mantra, “I am Ready to Receive Wisdom. May I bring my Dreams into Reality.”
Alternately, hold a Apatite mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
