I made one more stop to the rock store the other day. I was looking for a few small gifts, but deep down I know I needed something to distract my mind. I haven’t talked about Mom in detail lately, but the challenges and news keep compiling with every day. Every time I think not much worse can happen, it somehow does and while time is running out here and I’m still not packed, I can’t get to Germany fast enough. Nothing is easy or good when it comes to the news, and a trip to the rock store would offer a short time to take my mind off of things.
I walked slowly from display to display, in awe of all the beautiful rocks and crystals. I could spend hours there, and it’s always great and amazing to realize how much comfort a rock can bring. Strange, I know, but I like it. I picked out my gifts and decided to indulge in a little something for myself. Something, anything, and I had nothing specific in mind. I finally stopped at one display and looked at the various shapes of the same rock on display. I had no clue what it was called and what purpose it had, I just felt drawn to it and couldn’t recall ever seeing it before. I picked a few pieces, handling them, until I had the right rock that felt perfect within my hand.
Later at home, I unpacked my just bought treasures and pulled the fact sheet for the rock I had purchased for myself. I learned that the rock/crystal was called Celestite and the more I read, the more I found myself in awe. Talk about synchronicities and timing. I had no clue what rock it was and yet the discovery of such and the meaning of it couldn’t have come at any better time. It was exactly what I needed, as I felt a calm from holding it before I read the description. There was a energy about it as if something had wrapped me in a comforting blanket, telling me that everything would be ok. It’s hard to explain, but again I believe it was an essential piece of the puzzle and what I needed to find to give me the strengths to proceed.
Celestite is said to be an angelic stone. It can connect you to all aspects of the angelic realm, and to angels themselves. It is said that Celestite was given powers by angels to raise consciousness, and to bring guidance from the angels. Emotionally, Celestite is excellent for emotional protection and to end worry, fear, and anxiety. In this way it decreases negativity. Celestite is a great tool for meditation, as it helps focus on that than of this world and block out distracting “noise”. Celestite purifies the aura, and perfects the chakras. It is a stone that brings balance, especially to thought processes and communication. Psychically, Celestite is an excellent tool for astral travel. In the physical realm, Celestite is used for healing eye problems, mental disorders, cellular order, eliminating toxins, digestive problems. Celestite is associated primarily with the throat and crown chakras.
I have held the stone every day since as I allow it’s comfort to help guide me through this difficult time.
