What do you do when you want calmer heads to prevail? How do you make lemonade out of lemons? Where do you turn when it seems as if everything has suddenly gone dark or topsy turvey and you roll your eyes to the heavens and say, “a little assistance please!” What you really want is perspective. You’ll find that and more, with Calcite. Little by little, step by step, Calcite holds your hand and walks you to resolution. Calcite is all about perspective and it’s many many layers of opportunity. It helps to sooth hurt feelings. Ultimately Calcite offers an energy of confident and yet gentle persistence. Did you know that Trilobites (an ancient form of sea creature) had unique eyes that used clear Calcite crystals to form the lenses of their eyes? Now you might understand why it is so handy in assisting us in seeing that there are two sides to every coin.
My father used to say, “Tuffy, it takes two to Tango, so be sure to look at each side of a situation, not just from your own. If you can do that, you can avoid jumping to conclusions.” Pragmatic father he was, and Calcite is pragmatic at the very least. As much as we all love being right, Calcite points the way to finding rightness in solution rather than self-righteousness. Hold it in your hands and you’ll notice it’s slow and steady sense of purpose and calm. Calcite likes resolution and can be used to find a path to healing in a gentle and compassionate way. Think of having the Dalai Lama sitting next to you while you contemplate how to best proceed and you’ve got Calcite.
You might say, “But wait! My situation is different!” You are probably right, and that’s okay too, as Calcite is so versatile you may have noticed it doesn’t like being stuck in one type of formation or color. It comes in so many colors and shapes you’ll be sufficiently impressed. In fact, as I gathered up some of our Calcites for our weekly newsletter, I was hard pressed to fit them all in. We now, even boast a most amazing Stalactite Calcite formation in creamy white! It’s steady presence is impressive.
Calcite, like opinions and emotions vary, from clear crystalline to dogs-tooth covered with natural rainbow pyrite. Calcite thinks outside the box and sees you for the individual you are, because Calcite likes variety! It’s a stone of embracing all differences in opinion. Truly a stone of higher consciousness and socially aware crystalline energy. It is in it for the long haul and creates a deep sense of loyalty despite differences.
Here at Stargazers we have a collection and variety of calcite that offers you a wonderful array of potential for joy, calm and healing in your personal, and social life. One thing I find fascinating is that scientists are using calcite to create an invisibility cloak! If you’ve got a situation in which you need to limit your visibility or even take a vacation from prying eyes, calcite has your back. Calcite loves to go on vacation with you. Try adding some calcite to your life, your space or your medicine bag. Visit us and explore what Calcite has to say to you. Until then, we hold you in our hearts this week and hope your world is filled with ease and possibility.
For Sweet Tess.
