The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 10 August 2013 is Black Kyanite. Black Kyanite creates pathways where none existed before. Like a universal bridge, it is an extraordinary crystal of connection, opening the mind centres, enhancing telepathic and psychic abilities, bridging gaps in all communication efforts, and providing a link for transmitting or receiving healing energy. It immediately aligns the chakras and subtle bodies, bringing tranquility and a calming effect to the whole being. It is an exceptional stone for transitioning into deep meditative states.
Like Citrine, Kyanite is one of the two minerals on the planet that neither accumulates nor retains negative energy, and therefore never needs cleansing. Kyanite’s energy is unlimited in application, making it an excellent stone for metaphysical purposes, and it may be used for cleansing and clearing other crystals.
Kyanite inspires loyalty and fair treatment to others. It assists in working through disagreements and disputes, and can aid in repairing damaged relationships. It is beneficial in negotiations, diplomatic missions, arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people, allowing disparate energies to move into resonance and find a common frequency.
For those who have lost their way in life, or are trying to break a cycle of self-destructive behavior, use Kyanite in an empowerment grid to get back on track. Lay out rows of small Kyanite blades radiating from a central Kyanite in six different directions. Use each night to walk a different path in the mind, letting images and ideas take form spontaneously. Continue until you no longer need the grid.
To access forgotten childhood memories or to recall a word or name that eludes you, touch the center of your brow with Kyanite.
For children who have trouble integrating with others, or are physically different in any way, keep Kyanite blades near their outdoor or school clothing to help increase their popularity.
Black Kyanite, with its grounding energies, supports environmental healing, connecting with those who are pulling pollution out of the earth and assisting the evolution of the planet. Black kyanite clears blocked energy in any chakra, corrects imbalances.
