Metaphorically speaking, Howlite is like a gentle, comforting hug. It is an excellent stone for calming the mind, and alleviating distress. Ideally, it brings the bearer to a place where they are more receptive to messages from the Divine. Howlite is supposed to aid in meditation practice. It will also increase patience and make communications more tactful. Feelings of rage melt away in the presence of this stone.
In addition to relieving emotional pain, Howlite also has a reputation for easing physical pain and soreness. Use it to stave off leg cramps. If you are plagued by racing thoughts that cause insomnia, Howlite will help you to drift off into sleep.
Once the gentle effects of Howlite have brought you back to a point where you feel safe and secure, this stone sets you free to explore your creativity. It gives you the power to feel more completely yourself, regardless of what others think of you.
You are purchasing a set of three tumbled Howlite gemstones. Stones will vary in size and shape, but most are in the range of 1/2" to 3/4".
How should I use my gemstones?
Keep them close by, in your pocket, or in a small dish at your work space. Handle them often, as you focus on your needs and wishes. Sleep with them under your pillow. Place them on your altar. Whisper your wishes to them when no one else can hear you. The only thing we do NOT recommend doing is using your gemstones to infuse water that you will be drinking.
How can I cleanse my gemstones?
Over time, gemstones can pick up negative energies as they are used. Many different methods can be employed to cleanse your stones. Bury them in a small container of salt for a few days. Hold them in running water (this is not recommended for soft gemstones like selenite or jet). Let them sit overnight in the light from a full moon. Place them where a fresh breeze can pass over them.
