Metaphysical Healing Properties of Stilbite

Metaphysical healing properties of Stilbite

Stilbite is one of the zeolite stones, being related to apophyloite, heulandite, scolecite and other zeolites. The color ranges of stilbite are white, yellow, pink, orange, red and brown.

Stilbite is a wonderful stone that connects the heart chakra with the upper chakras. I always look at the chakras as the first three being the lower chakras, the heart chakra being in the middle, and the throat through crown as the upper chakras. Stilbite allows the heart chakra to connect with the upper three chakras when usually the heart chakra stands alone in the middle. Because of this effect stilbite has on the upper chakras, it allows us to bring heart into everything we work on within the realms of these three higher chakras.

This connection of stilbite allows us to tap into our creativity, using the throat chakra it allows one to bring love and openness to their creative flow. Stilbite is strongly connected to the third eye chakra as well, assisting one in the dream state, and allowing for pleasant dreams. For someone that needs help in falling asleep, stilbite can be used as a tonic effect on the mind. You can either hold a piece of stilbite in your hands, place it on your third eye or place it on the headboard of your bed to invoke the calming effects of stilbite in your sleep.

When stilbite and apophylloite occur together, this enhances the effect of their energy. This combination of stones, which is pretty common, will allow interdimensional travel from apophylloite to become more heart centered and gentler by the stilbite energy.

Mentally stilbite will help to de-clutter one's mind, it also helps one to focus on which tasks are most important to take on first. Stilbite allows the person to be free from too many external influences including fear, and assists one in making decisions and choices that are correct for the evolvement of this person's spiritual path. Stilbite will also help to allow one to make good decisions by showing them that there are no such thing as “wrong” decisions. It does this by allowing one to see that all decisions are part of the path of learning. This allows the person drawn to stilbite, to grow further and feel more confident, while releasing fear.

Physically, it is said that stilbite can help one to retain the understanding of knowledge. Stilbite also helps to balance the hemispheres of the brain, when balance has happened, this allows whole brain thinking to occur! It's been said that stilbite can help with ADD and ADHD patients because of the mental balance that stilbite releases.

I personally love stilbite, because of its soft loving, calm energy. I am particularly connected to the pink color of stilbite, as it seems to radiate a very warm, heart centered energy. I love zeolite stones but for me, I like to use them when I meditating or sleeping as their energy does not seem conducive to a very highly energetic, productive state of mind. So play with your zeolites, stilbite in particular, to see how it affects you. Try keeping a piece of it in your pocket throughout the day and see how you feel. For those that tend to run a little hot-blooded or overly energetic, stilbite may be just the perfect tonic that you need to relax you and bring calmness to your experience while working and focusing on the task at hand. For those that tend to be a little bit more relaxed in their approach to life (like I am), using stilbite in meditation or sleep may be better for you.

Stilbite is connected to the zodiac sign of Aries.
