Sodalite is one of my favourite crystals! They aren't exceptionally beautiful to look at like some crystals are, but once you connect to a piece of sodalite you'll never look back. Here's a bit about my beloved sodalite and how it can help you to develop your intuition...
If you have an affinity for Lapis Lazuli or other Egyptian-connected stones then you may want to consider buying a piece of sodalite to add to your collection. Sodalite is extremely powerful when it is charged with the intent to use it for its main purposes. Its blue colouring can be quite dull, even when polished, but the vibration that this stone gives off makes it all the more captivating.
Sodalite is a gentle stone. If you are sensitive to a stone's vibration then it won't upset your energy balance too much or shift things swiftly and dramatically as some other crystals can. Its peaceful nature is charming. As a third eye crystal, its benefits to astrologers, tarot readers, numerologists and the rest of us are truly amazing.
Sodalite helps to develop psychic abilities and tap into the subconscious mind. Because I'm having a long-term love affair with Sodalite I use it before any reading I do, usually meditating with it on my third eye for five minutes. I also sleep with it under my pillow and carry it in my pocket most days. A bit obsessed? I guess so! It opens up waves of intuition that help you connect with what is going on around you.
Meditating with sodalite on the third eye (between the brows and slightly above) doesn't allow for quiet meditation. This crystal can produce a physical pushing feeling on the third eye. This is just the stone's energy transferring to you. It can bring forth all sorts of messages into the conscious mind to leave you feeling like you've just watched a movie in fast-play mode. This is all part of the beauty of sodalite and its gift of awakening your psychic abilities. You can also meditate with sodalite by just holding it. This is much more gentle and better to start with if you are just starting to learn how to tap into your psychic abilities.
Sleeping on sodalite also provides a fast-play mode of dreaming. If you are going to sleep on sodalite I'd suggest only doing so every night if you are accustomed to your sodalite crystal. If you aren't accustomed to its power yet, then only use it on weekends or when you don't have to go to work the next day. It can tire you out if you aren't used to it and have had your brain working out all night. Don't sleep on it with moldavite either as the messages that come through will be super intense!
Physically, sodalite help to normalise one's blood pressure and water retention and alleviates stress and other mental illnesses. It is perfect for cleansing your third eye chakra too.
Sodalite harmonises beautifully with many other crystals including lapis lazuli, iolite and any other blue stone. Danburite also helps the user reach out to a higher plane when used with sodalite.
So go ahead a get yourself a piece of sodalite, charge it under the full moon and watch the transformation in your psychic abilities as it helps you open up and connect to the world around you
