The Crystal of the Day Sunday 1 September 2013 is Orange Kyanite. Orange kyanite helps open and balance the Sacral Hara Chakra. Balancing the Sacral Chakra, Orange Kyanite increases our senses, self-esteem and communication skills, enabling us to use our intuition in our decision-making. It increases creative thinking, sexuality, and clairsentience. It was once believed that a kyanite suspended from a human hair could follow the earth’s magnetic force. Early travellers sometimes used it as a compass when exploring unknown territories.
The fan like clusters or blades that are formed by kyanite make it an ideal stone for restoring energy balance. It is a very effective energy conduit that can balance most systems of the body. It can quickly create stillness and tranquility, making it an excellent stone for meditation.
Orange Kyanite instills a sense of child-like joy in all of us, enabling us to put our imaginations to work and then get out there and share our creations with others, without fear of judgment. It guides us in facing challenges head-on, especially those with addictions. Orange Kyanite eases depression and helps to bring back a sense of optimism and positive-thinking.
Physically, Orange Kyanite assists with overcoming eating disorders; helps with libido and fertility problems; eases disorders of the bladder, digestive system and kidneys.
Orange Kyanite, a fairly new crystal found in Tanzania, gets its golden orange/brown coloring from inclusions of Manganese. This is the stone of creativity, whether artists, writers, performers or musicians.
