Angelite, a blue Anhydrite, is a high vibrating crystal that aids in spiritual growth, higher intuition, and heightened awareness. It is a newer discovery, having been found in Peru in 1987 during the Harmonic Conversion. Angelite is a Gypsum and should not be exposed to water for any length of time. Anhydra means “without water” and if Angelite is exposed to water, it will begin to re-hydrate.
Much like Celestite, it aids in connecting us to the angelic realm and our spiritual guides. This stone is particularly helpful when dealing with the grief of losing a loved one. It assists in letting go of any bad feelings of the loved one who has passed, allowing your soul to heal from the loss. Carrying a stone of Angelite with you and thinking of this person, can help to reconnect with them on a higher plain.
Angelite resonates with the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras, and sends energy to the Soul Star Chakra. The higher level of vibrations sent to these Chakras allows for enhanced intuition and clearer communication. If you have difficulty speaking in public, or with confrontational situations, it will give you strength to speak your truth. Keeping a piece with you can aid in clearing your thoughts and help with self-expression. It can also help in feeling empathy for others, especially those who are difficult, and assists with us in forgiving others. Keeping a piece under your pillow will aid in a calmer night’s sleep and more lucid dreams. Keeping a piece in your child’s room can help to calm them and allow them to sleep through the night.
Celestite helps to boost the energy.
Seraphinite can assist in connecting to a higher order of angelic beings. Other crystals that aid in this are: Aragonite, Prehnite, and Petalite. Be aware that not all angelic beings are happy and peaceful, this is a fairly new concept and does not represent all spiritual beings. It is important that you learn the proper way to contact your spirit guide and how to protect yourself from negative beings. Cleansing this stone properly is important, as you do not want to damage it using many of the common methods. It cannot be cleansed in water or it will revert to its calcite form.
Brown Rice: Bury them in a glass bowl of brown rice for up to twenty-four hours. Make sure you throw out the used rice when done.
Cleansing stones: Place them in a glass bowl with Hematite or Crystal Quartz, leaving overnight.
To recharge your Angelite, place it in the sun for several hours, or under the full moon.
Angelite is a stone of peace and compassion. Its calming effects helps to raise the state of awareness and to enhance psychic healing and communication. Angelite can dispel fear and anxiety, helping you to find a place of tranquility and bring a deeper understanding of the world around you.
