Howlite – The Most Underrated Stone Ever!
Match the color that you wear to your inner vibrational frequency.
Welcome back to The Schapera Show, where Viv and Neil explore this big adventure called Life. This is the part of the show where I, Vivien, talk to crystals and today we are talking to Howlite. While we are all running around oohing and aahing over expensive crystals like Tourmaline and Aquamarine, there is a freely available, inexpensive option that is unbelievably versatile and powerful and it is called “Howlite.”
Howlite has to be the most underrated stone ever. Its appearance is pleasant enough – to me it looks a little bit like the marble we see on kitchen countertops – white with grey veins, but its effect is phenomenal!
Let’s first talk about Howlite’s versatility. It is so versatile, that it gets dyed and sold as: Turquoise, Lapis, Sodalite, Aventurine and Sugilite. There are two aspects to dyeing a stone. The first is to resemble the other stone – so that means the end buyer can be fooled into thinking the Howlite is one of these other stones, Turquoise for example, because of what it looks like. But let’s remember, we all ultimately decide on buying a stone, not because of what it looks like – even if this is the initial attraction – but because of how it feels. And if we look up the most sought-after properties of Turquoise, Lapis, Sodalite, Aventurine and Sugilite we discover that lo and behold – Howlite has those properties too!
Here’s an example of how Howlite is underrated: Melody says in her Mineral Encyclopedia: “Howlite has been used to eliminate pain, stress and rage; hence it is quite nice to have around.” (p.364) I mean really!!! What more can we want – and then all Howlite gets is a “quite nice,” instead of a “pretty darn spectacular!”
So, what are these spectacular properties that Howlite has? Howlite:
- Supports reason, observation and patience, as well as memory and the pursuit of knowledge – thereby supporting the intellect
- Antidotes over-critical behaviors, selfishness, and facetiousness
- Supports emotional balance
- Builds “innate decency,” paving the path to spirituality
Additionally, Howlite can “lessen both rudeness and boisterousness, and can further provide for a reflection of the offender to the offender. It discourages impertinent behavior and encourages subtlety and tact.” p.364
Physiologically, Howlite is also good for balancing calcium and helping issues with teeth, bone and soft tissue.
In summary, Howlite positively affects us physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually – which is why it can be disguised, with mere dye, as a host of significant stones. Bottom line: Don’t throw your dyed stones out just because they are dyed, your dyed stones are quite probably Howlite, a dignified contender.
When I ask Howlite what it wants to say to you all, it is quite clear: “Ask yourself: “Am I being underrated by myself or others? The answer is probably ‘yes.’”
And then, in a very surprising twist, Howlite adds: “There is a saying: ‘The clothes maketh the man.’ This is true! I become appreciated and recognized when I am dyed a different color, because that is when my core traits – my true value – become perceived.
“Choose your clothes to reflect your inner nature and you will enjoy life even more. The principle is to have to your clothes match your inner vibrational frequency so that you both feel 100% comfortable and people can recognize what lies under the surface. One of the best ways to do this, is through the correct use of color. Each color has its vibrational frequency and by matching the color that you wear with your vibrational frequency, you support and enhance your energy.
“In your culture, you tend to all dress the same – like a uniform – depicting that you ‘belong.’ This is OK, but you also need to show who you are. Let your colors and your clothes harmonize correctly with your vibrational frequency and you will be quite gratified at what happens next.”
Well, thank you, Howlite. I am quite gratified to receive such surprising and helpful insights from you, and clearly … next stop is “shopping!”
