Hoping to drop the frenzy, the worry, the never-ending stress? Howlite is for you! This gray and white marbled crystal is quite possibly the ultimate crystal of calm.
Howlite is very spiritual too - no matter your beliefs, it will leave you feeling more aligned, aware, and purpose-driven. Read on for a closer look at Howlite's meaning, healing properties, and ways to use Howlite.
Healing Properties of Howlite
- Calm: Howlite has an incredibly calming energy with a balancing affect, making it a great choice for those who deal with overactive minds. Use this stone to relieve anxiety, stress, and insomnia while promoting patience, clarity and a calm mind.
- Coping: The calming element of Howlite makes it a popular choice to support anyone going through a grief process. It can feel supportive and soothing.
- Awareness: Howlite helps you connect your thoughts and consciousness to your higher power, or divine guidance. This helps increase mental and emotional awareness, which in turn helps you tone down critical or selfish thoughts and tune into your best self. This aspect may help you clue into things in your life you've been overlooking - both positive and negative.
- Ambition: If you feel like you’re floundering, Howlite encourages a sense of deep purpose and offers clear motivation. This is not exactly the same as a fiery, passionate motivation you may feel from a stone like Carnelian. Instead, this is a grounded, spiritually-aligned ambition. Howlite helps you stay on course even through the ups and downs!
