Healing Properties of Howlite
Spiritual: Howlite has a wonderfully soft and peaceful energy that gently expands outward when used during meditation, prayer or spiritual journeying. It calms our spirit, helping us to find a sense of balance in our everyday life and to connect more directly with our Highest Self and other guides. Howlite encourages us to believe in our dreams and to not hesitate when action is needed. It is a stone of patience and wisdom. It is particularly helpful for anyone who is ready to “grow up” and step more fully into their personal power and spiritual greatness. Howlite is attuned to the Crown Chakra and linked to astrological sign of Gemini. It is connected to the Element of Wind and vibrates to the number 2.
Emotional: Howlite quiets the ‘inner critic’ which is often so unkind, and replaces that voice with one more compassionate, patient and tactful. Howlite helps us to calmly and clearly express our own thoughts and emotions and to better understand what other people are trying to communicate, both verbally and non-verbally. Howlite is particularly helpful for handling boisterous children in a loving fashion which nevertheless commands their attention and respect. Howlite can help us to better handle rude behavior or thoughtlessness of other people. It gently releases stress and irritation from our emotional body, and reduces outright anger by channeling it in a productive direction. Howlite encourages us to speak and act with true decency towards others and to encourage this humanitarian spirit in others.
Mental: Howlite inspires good, thoughtful reasoning. It is a wonderful stone for scholars and students as it encourages a love of learning and improves memory retention. It inspires patience and a willingness to observe, experiment, and carefully analyze before jumping to any conclusions. Howlite teaches discernment and can help us to give and receive constructive criticism in a more palatable way so that it is easier to accept and integrate. Howlite also reminds us to be patient with ourselves and our learning process, while remaining ambitious and eager to go after our goals.
Physical: Howlite is most often used by metaphysical healers to balance calcium levels in the body and to treat teeth, bones, and cartilage. It is also said to make an excellent sleeping aid stone, for treating insomnia or calming emotions after a nightmare. It is believed to help with dietary problems, whether leading to obesity or anorexia.
