This month I’m continuing with more gemstones that help with courage and strength.
My focus this month is on howlite, onyx and lapis lazuli, three more stones with amazing properties that help with both courage and strength.
Not only does howlite promote inner strength, it also helps with stress-release. This is a stone that is beautiful in its pure form, but is often dyed to imitate other stones, often turquoise. If you find a turquoise piece that has a great price, may scratch easily, or fade over time, you may very well have a piece of howlite. Now that you know the strengths of this stone, wear it with pride and know that it’s protecting you.
This is another stone that is often dyed, black in most cases. But did you know it’s actually banded in its natural form? Not only that, but the metaphysical properties show that aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief.
Lapis Lazuli, from Afghanistan, is a stone of deep peace and harmony, for spiritual strength and knowing yourself deeply. It can bring about inner truth, honesty as well as compassion for others in your life to have these qualities themselves when they need it most with Lapis’s calming effect on the mind-body connection.
