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 it's main purposes. It's 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 like some other crystals can. It's peaceful nature is charming. As a third eye crystal it's benefits to astrologers, tarot readers, numerologists and the rest of us is 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 prior to any reading I do- usually meditating with it on my third eye for 5 minutes, I also sleep with it under my pillow and carry in my pocket most days. A bit obsessed I guess?! 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 a 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 too leaving you feeling like you've just watched a movie in fast-play mode. This is all part of the beauty of Sodalite and it's 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 type 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 gem. If you aren't accustomed to it's power yet, then only using 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- the messages that come through will be super intense!
Physically, Sodalite helps in normalising blood pressure, water retention and alleviating stress and other mental illnesses. It is perfect for cleansing your third eye chakra too.
Sodalite harmonises beautifully with many other crystals including Lapis Luzuli, 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
