Calcite: the wish stone

Calcite, one of the most abundant crystals on the planet, is found in a large variety of crystallized forms, colors and vibrations.

The universe becomes a magical place when you think how everything seems specifically designed for a motive and function. Crystals, such as calcite, have been used for centuries for healing, protection, decoration and adornment.

Calcite crystals are known as energy amplifiers and have long been regarded as magical crystals that will double your abundance of prosperity, well-being, health, personal power, physical strength, endurance and good fortune. It is often called the wish stone and has a multi-directional energy distribution.

Energy is directed inward toward the central forces of the crystal and appears to separate and return at double the intensity. In ancient Egypt, ritual bowls, cups and other objects were carved out of calcite. The gentle healing power of the stone was passed into the food, drink or offerings, amplifying the power of intention and prayer.

Calcite, one of the most abundant crystals on the planet, is found in a large variety of crystallized forms, colors and vibrations. They are mostly characterized by the rhombohedral crystallization (a six-faced crystal, each face the shape of a rhombus). Calcites span the rainbow of colors from clear, white, green, pink, peach, golden, orange, yellow and red, to blue, gray or black.

Calcites, like other crystals, are considered sacred gifts from Mother Earth. The ancient Egyptians and other ancient tribes considered crystals to be the bones of Mother Earth herself. How wonderfully ironic that calcite, in its abundance, structurally supports the earth and, in turn, its vibrational energies are said to strengthen man’s bones and joints.

If you were to choose only one type of crystal for all the various healing and spiritual energies, calcite would be an excellent choice. The rich variety of colors and vibrations do their work with a gentle energy — cleansing, refreshing and revitalizing as the energy opens blockages and activates the chakra energy centers.

Calcite energy helps foster a feeling of appreciation for the creative forces of nature and allows you to view the world with new eyes; you will feel intrinsic joy in all aspects of life. Calcites are excellent at removing blockages and assisting in moving beyond old patterns. Each form of calcite addresses particular areas of the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. A few are as follows:

Clear and white calcite — Facilitates psychic abilities, channeling and astral projection. Alleviates emotional stress, allowing for forgiveness, peace and serenity. Aids in cleansing organs and strengthens skeletal structure.

Blue calcite — Calms and soothes the emotional body. Aids in psychic awareness and astral travel. Great meditation stone. Promotes healing of sore throats and glands, and aids in strengthening teeth and bones.

Golden calcite — Promotes concentration and focus. Brings in spiritual light and knowledge. Assists in healing past sorrows. Aids hormonal imbalances. Assists in the detoxification of kidneys. Supports spine, bones, joints, pancreas and spleen.

Green calcite — Quiets the mind, reduces stress, grants relaxation. Aids emotional balance. Great for balancing and as a healing aid to clear and prevent infections. Works well with hyperactive children and those with attention deficit disorder.

Orange/red calcite — Clarifies intuitive insights. Aids sensory awareness. Assists in balancing the endocrine system and regulates hormones. Helps strengthen the blood. Grants gentle healing energy for gallbladder, liver or spleen.

Pink calcite — Emits the vibrational pattern of the divine feminine. Transmits loving energy for acceptance of self and others. Restores emotional security. Effective for problems or illness.

Remember your state of perfection. View the world with new eyes. There is no better time than now to make your wish — with calcite, the wish stone.
