Kyanite: The bridge of light

Kyanite is an aluminum silicate mineral that crystallizes as flat mica-like layers, forming elongated blades that can be twisted or straight. Its hardness ranges from 4.5 to 7, depending on the direction by which it is measured.

In the past, cutting this stone for jewelry-making could be difficult. However, in recent years, it has become possible through laser technology, an effective method to cut across the crystal axes to create jewelry with the optimum hardness of 6 to 7. Kyanite occurs in a large range of colors, the most popular for metaphysical use being blue, black and green.

The kyanite blade is a very powerful transmitter. It builds energetic bridges of light between contrasting aspects of experience. This bridge is extremely protective against negativity, dissipating hostility and pushing away that which you choose to discard.

The strong energy that kyanite emits restructures mental energies by creating pathways of light and information where none existed before. These pathways bring about a more harmonious connection and communication.

Kyanite’s energy is unlimited in application, making it one of the finest attunement stones. It never needs clearing or cleaning, and will not accumulate or retain negative energy or vibrations. It can align all the chakras automatically and, when the user has conscious intention, it can be focused to open the chakras and align the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, ethereal and astral bodies.

Kyanite promotes healthy cell development, aids muscular disorders, can be used as a natural pain reliever and can heal infections and lower blood pressure. Its calming effects dispel frustration and confusion in the most difficult of times. It also supports the development of one’s full potential — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually, encouraging creativity and supporting one in the continuation of projects.

The stone is an excellent crystal for past-life recall, especially when seeking to understand a current issue or phobia that appears to have no roots in the present time. It facilitates the ascension process by drawing the light body down into the physical and connecting the higher mind to the highest frequencies. Kyanite also creates inner bridges, promotes psychic ability and can help create calmness in a not-so-calm world.

There is no better time than now to transmit a bridge of light and information, creating new pathways of perception, and bringing together incongruent aspects of experience for a greater shift in one’s consciousness.
