Healing Benefits of White Calcite – (Crown Chakra) – (Zodiac of Cancer)
I happen to be in love with Calcite – all of the colors! There is something immensely pure and clean feeling about the way each color simulates our Chakras. Today we are starting with the Master Cleanser of all Calcite: White Calcite
Science – Calcite is one of the most common minerals on this Earth. Given its ability to cleanse and purify, I consider that a good thing for the population of the Earth. Calcite is often used as an acid neutralizer and high quality calcite is also used in antacid medications. This crystal is also fairly soft and delicate, so should be handled with care.
Historical Significance – The name is derived from the Latin word for ‘lime’ – calx. Limestone is made up primarily of Calcite.
Metaphysical Attributes – All Calcite is a powerful cleanser and amplifier of energy. Just having Calcite in a room will clear it of all negative energies. If you are moving into a new home or office, place some Calcite around the entire space to give it a thorough energetic cleansing before moving in. It invigorates stagnant energy within the body. It acts as an amplifier of all energies, so it is especially helpful when using Reiki or any other energy-based healing practice. Calcite also holds warmth and energy, so can be charged with energy and intention for future spiritual practices.
White Calcite in particular is used to accelerate spiritual development. It clears unnecessary attachments, beliefs and energies from our system that are blocking spiritual growth. It connects us deeply to our higher consciousness so we intuitively know where we need to develop along the spiritual path. White Calcite allows us to trust in ourselves, our intuition, and be able to hang in there during difficult time. This is an excellent crystal to hold while meditating, because it clears the energy, settles the mind, and allows us to open up to guidance from our Higher Self.
Calcite helps us absorb human experiences for incorporation into our Higher Self . It enables us to process life lessons at a deeper level and incorporate those experiences into our own personal and spiritual growth. This enables us to process karma at a rapid pace and clear those debts from our Soul.
Physical Effects – This stone is said to be useful for recovery from any injury or illness. It reduces stress and tension. Is said to be very useful for growth of small children.
Practice Mantra – Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the White Calcite 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 your are surrounded by the brightest white light. It is dissolving any stagnant energy and darkness. Repeat this mantra, “I am Clear. I am Open. I am Ready to connect deeply with my Higher Self.”
Alternately, hold a White Calcite mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
