It can help in all issues related to the will, such as clearing the negative effects of abuse of power, clarifying your true motivations, and helping you express your gifts in the world.

Howlite Meaning

Howlite

Howlite is calming because it encourages you to “live and let live”, letting go of attachments that are causing stress and encouraging you to enjoy your life as it is without worrying about what others are doing. This in turn promotes true rest, which is why it is known for helping with insomnia.

Moldavite Meaning

Moldavite

Opal’s fire carries a spiritual energy that burns through attachments, wounds, and negative patterns. It can amplify your emotions, bringing semi-conscious patterns to the surface of your awareness to be dealt with. When these are cleared, it also amplifies joy.

Quartz Meaning

Quartz

Clear quartz is the most useful and versatile of gemstones for metaphysical work. It has the unique property of being “programmable”, meaning you can infuse it with your intention and then it will amplify it, working on your behalf to manifest it in the world. It also acts to amplify the energies of any other stone you are working with.

Unakite supports the physical body by purging toxicity from old emotional wounds and attachments, anger and resentment, and bad habits like overeating. It gradually supports a healthy alignment of physical, mental, and spiritual bodies, helping the body become a support for higher experiences. Its slow, consistent energy helps teach patience and perseverance rather than the quick-fix of addictive thinking.
