As above, so below: Reconnecting with Spirit
For me, Sodalite has always been one of my all-time favorite stones that I always loved and adored, had in my collection, but never knew quite what to do with it. I love the black, blue and white veiny appearance, and sometimes the blues appear to be like tie-dyed denim. It was also one of the stones that started my personal crystal collection as a kid.
So what do you do with Sodalite? Sodalite is all about clearing the cobwebs and allowing for awakening. It has a gentle energy that helps to calm the mind so that you can make sound, logical decisions. It enables the conscious and subconscious mind to connect with one’s thoughts and feelings, which allows one to recognize and communicate those truths objectively. Sodalite inspires intuition, as well, and for all of these properties, it opens up a clear path to connect, or reconnect, with the Higher Self, or Divine energies.
Blue stones and crystals are typically connected to communication due to the color blue is the color of the throat chakra. It has a lot to do with speaking your truth. Sodalite is one of the darkest and densest of the blue stones and it allows for deeper communication with the Self and an honest evaluation of one’s character.
Sodalite is a wonderful stone to use for those who are prone to panic attacks, defensive, impulsive behaviors, or who are over sensitive. Sodalite helps to calm the nervous mind and fosters a shift from an overly emotional state of mind to one of a more logical point of view. With that said, it is also useful for women who are suffering from mood swings brought on by hormonal shifts such as with PMS or menopause.
Like Black Tourmaline, Sodalite can be placed near a computer to “soak up” the electromagnetic pollutions. It is a wonderful stone to have in your office if you are sensitive to working in a building without natural light or airflow.
Sodalite’s vibration is one that unites the logical mind with intuition, allowing for one to live in truth. Its energies are gentle, calming and grounding and Sodalite is most ideal for one who meditates on finding their personal truth. For this reason, it helps one to connect with Divine energies as their spiritual path becomes clearer.
