The Crystal of the Day for Wednesday 11 September 2013 is Chiastolite. Chiastolite is a quite unique deep brown stone with a natural black cross formation in its structure. Ancient people revered the cross within it as a sign from God as the name “chiastolite” derives from the Greek chiastos meaning “cross marked”.
This unusual crystal has long been regarded as a stone that is highly protective. These ancient beliefs have been shown to be true as it is a highly effective psychic protection stone.
This brown stone has a highly protective vibration. In the distant past Chiastolite was used to ward off the evil eye and curses by ancient people. This is a stone of balance and harmony and will counter disagreements between people of differing ideas, and transform their attitudes into one of harmonious agreement.
This is an excellent stone for you to use alongside the higher vibration stones, as it is a powerful stone to aid you to journey to higher spiritual realms and to learn about the contents of the akashic records, while remaining grounded. They aid you to change negative energy into positive, and foster harmony and peace.
It has a strong action to enable you to understand your mortality. It helps you to be aware that you are on a journey that comprises this life and past lives you have experienced – life after life, death and re-birth. It is a comforting stone if you are suffering grave illness and is known to be helpful to ease the dying as they approach the time to return to spirit.
Its energy helps you to be aware that life changes, and that it is necessary for all of us to adapt to the changes that occur. This is a suitable stone to help you as you age, when you may find that you are no longer able to do what you may previously have done. It will help you if you need to adapt to change, and particularly if you experience unexpected severe illness that may challenge your relationship with spirit.
