Healing Properties of Apatite
Spiritual: Apatite is a merry stone that promotes a rich love of people, social situations, and being of service to others. It is a stone for happy inspiration and manifestation, and gives us both strength and hope to pursue our dreams, even when times are difficult and the path forward seems daunting. Apatite helps us to laugh more, and dispel the darkness. Apatite can also help us to develop our natural psychic gifts including clairvoyance, clairaudiance, and clairsentience, and to open up communication with other realms including the Fairy Kingdom and extraterrestrials. Interestingly, Apatite simultaneously helps us become more aware of past lives and their effects on us today, while also helping us to stay in the present. It actively encourages us to break any karmic ties that hold us back from living happily in this lifetime. Apatite is attuned to the Third Eye Chakra and links to the astrological sign of Gemini. It is connected to the Elements of Wind, and vibrates to the number 9.
Emotional: Apatite is one of the best stones to carry to encourage a love of life, easy friendships, and extroverted behavior. It helps reverse feelings of apathy, irritability, and emotional exhaustion. Apatite gives us merry permission to pursue our passions in all forms, and to ignore socially proscribed guilt for doing so. Apatite encourages us to live outside of the box, to try new things and be open to variety and spontaneity. It invites us to be more adventurous in our relationships, both romantic and friendly, encouraging us to seek out people different than ourselves – good people who can help us grow and become more interesting in our own right.
Mental: Apatite helps us to concentrate on happy thoughts and to not dwell on past hardships. It stimulates creativity and the intellect, helping us to find and understand Truth in all its forms. Apatite makes a wonderful dream stone, encouraging lucid dreaming. It also aids in group communication and assists us in accurate self-expression. Apatite is particularly supportive for anyone who is involved in social work, charity work, or has dedicated their life to public service. Apatite instills in us a hope for a better future and a willingness to work hard and be part of the solution, rather than complaining about the problems. Apatite clears away mental confusion so we can focus on whatever is most important.
Physical: Apatite is said to stimulate healthy eating habits and repair damage to metabolism and teeth. It has been used by metaphysical healers to help with posture, arthritis, and joint problems, as well as to increase the healing speed for broken bones. It is also believed to soothe headaches as well as eye problems.
