Apophyllite stones have a high vibration that will raise your spirits, and spiritually energize your entire being. These crystals have a unique vibration that can be used in a number of ways.
They stimulate your pineal gland and help to open you up to spiritual awakening, by infusing your light-body with high vibration energy.
This may give you relief from stress, tension and anxiety. These crystals have an excellent ability to transmit their energy, and are uplifting to simply keep in the room with you.
The lovely clear crystals including the sweet little pyramids are particularly wonderful to work with.
The meaning of the name Apophyllite, comes from the Greek words that mean 'get' and 'leaf', referring to its proclivity to exfoliate like a leaf, when heated.
These crystals comes in a range of colors, but the most common are the clear or colorless crystals, and the Green Apophyllite stones.
When this article refers to the clear crystals, this may also include stones that are opaque, and those that are a mix of white and clear.
Other less common colors are totally white stones, grayish white, yellowish, rose red shades, and some quite rare black crystals, caused by inclusions of other minerals, possibly Hematite.
They are commonly found in combination with yellow Stilbite. These stones form in a number of different configurations.
These stones have a high water content, which gives them the ability to conduct electricity. You will find them in a naturally occurring pyramid shape, as druzy crystals on another mineral, in clusters and in the massive form.
While these crystals may be found in places other than India, including Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Britain, Czech Republic, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Canada and Australia, the best stones are said to come from Poona in India.
They are excellent healing crystals for you to use in your meditation as they are powerful aids to assist you to receive guidance from spirit, your guides and the angels.
You may find that it is especially helpful to place a pyramid on your third eye while meditating. Their energy aids you to feel calmer, more relaxed and happier within yourself.
While they have potent metaphysical attributes they also have a number of excellent healing properties. Use a group of them to grid your home, so you can feel better all the time.
The flow of spiritual light they convey to you from the higher realms, brings hope for the future, and also helps you to release negative thought patterns that may be holding you back.
Apophyllite stones are powerful to aid you to become spiritually uplifted. In particular these crystals will stimulate the area of the third eye chakra, intensifying your inner vision, and clearing any blockages in the crown chakra.
Their resonance aids you to release negative energy, aiding you to be happier, calmer and more at peace. They simultaneously infuse your auric field with high vibration light energy from the spiritual realms.
Once you have removed any stagnant energy that may be blocking your crown chakra, this allows the flow of light from spirit to move throughout your being to infuse you with spiritual light and love.
As your inner being starts to fully resonate with this highly spiritual vibration, allow yourself to gently move upwards on the path to the higher realms.
As you travel upwards via the eighth chakra, also known as the soul star chakra you may make contact with beings in the higher realms. These light beings will become aware of your energy, and come forward to make contact with you.
Traveling in these realms can create amazing experiences, and by expanding your inner vision, open you up to utilizing a greater number of spiritual gifts.
The clear stones and pyramids can be used for crystal gazing or scrying, and they are quite easy to use. Rather than staring deeply into your crystal, simply place it off to the side a little.
This sideways viewing is also helpful to aid you to gain information about things that may happen in the future. Keep an awareness of your desire to travel to the higher realms, while you allow yourself to kind of glaze over.
Look at your Apophyllite crystal from the corner of your eye, but at the same time look past it. This is sort of like you might do if you were day dreaming, when you lose awareness of your surroundings.
As soon as you feel that you have the conscious connection to the spiritual realm, simply allow yourself to travel where the images take you, and do not try to make sense of any of it, just go with the flow.
You may find yourself traveling up bright white passages of light, which is very calming and so relaxing. If you wish to close your eyes do so, just flow with whatever feels right for you.
Using this crystal may aid you to break through the veil to discover what has been preventing you from experiencing true happiness.
Use this experience to learn more about who you are, and what your deep inner reasons might be for many of your current and past actions.
You may find you will make contact with beings who will give you guidance about how to move forward in your life, to gain the most out of your current situation.
Visions are a common outcome of using these crystals, as they open up your spiritual and psychic abilities.
Even if you have not been previously using your psychic vision, also known as clairvoyance, you are likely to experience this gift when using this crystal.
Using these crystals may also stimulate the birth of a variety of other types of psychic based communication gifts. This includes expanding your intuitive abilities, remote viewing and boosting your telepathic abilities.
It is also an excellent crystal to aid astral travel, as it gives a stable connection back to your body to aid your return.
It is known to aid access to the Akashic records, the repository of all the information about what has ever been.
The other excellent attribute is that it aids you to have total conscious awareness of what happens to you in spirit, and on your return aids you to remember messages from the Divine mind.
It is important though to write down what you were told on your spiritual journey as soon as you return. Keeping a journal may assist you to keep a record of this, to track your progress.
Apophyllite is easy to buy, and one of the best ways to use this crystal is to meditate with it. These high vibration crystals will aid you to make contact with spirit and with the angels.
A powerful way to use it is to place it on your third eye while you are meditating. If you have one, you can use a small Apophyllite pyramid for this purpose.
These single small pyramids are quite easy to obtain and are often sold as Apophyllite Tips, and are usually reasonably inexpensive as well.
These pyramids are also called tips. They are a powerful way to use this stone, either in meditation or for crystal gazing or scrying.
Place the pyramid base down on your forehead within your third eye and close your eyes. Because your pineal gland is located within this chakra, placing it there stimulates inner vision.
It is from the area of your higher chakras that your visionary abilities emerge, and it is also where most types of psychic abilities or powers originate.
This is an excellent way to begin connecting with guides and other spiritual beings, including making contact with angels.
It is common for this crystal to aid you to make a connection with new spirit guides that may wish to work with you.
For some days before writing about any stone I like to immerse myself in its energy, in an in-depth way.
I have found that since I began using this crystal for greater periods over the last week, that I find myself experiencing psychic visions as soon as I allow myself to slip into that relaxed sort of day dreamy feeling.
Even doing the dishes, a time that it is easy to slip into a day dream, I saw spiritual beings in my mind and felt their contact.
I saw and felt gorgeous green beings surrounded by bright, clear green light fill my being, and it just felt great to be alive!
I have had these crystals quite close by me and I must admit I am happy to keep them permanently nearby now, as they create such a wonderful energy.
If you have not previously found your spirit guide, using this stone to do a psychic meditation may aid you with connecting with your spirit guide. This is a truly mind expanding crystal, and both the clear and green stones have a truly lovely energy!
Although it is said that it is the Green Apophyllite that is the heart based variety, I have been concentrating on using the clear stones and I must say that the energy coming from them is truly loving.
I now feel that the clear variety can also be categorized as a heart chakra stone along with the green variety.
Using these crystals is one of the methods to relieve stress and they also help you to let go of fear and stifled emotions.
These are lovely stones to grid your home with, and this is particularly helpful if you have been suffering from depression, anxiety or stress.
They have a number of helpful qualities that make them an excellent stone to use to grid your home. I originally bought my Apophyllite pyramids to use to grid my bed.
For this use, I put one pyramid on each of the four legs of my wooden bed, between the mattress and the base, and one in the middle.
This helped me to have a good nights sleep, and to wake relaxed and happy. No doubt this also contributed to my ongoing spiritual development, so this was an excellent use for them.
If you can get five pyramids, or clusters if you like, you can use them to grid either a specific room or even your entire home. Currently I am using some of mine to grid the living area. There is more than one way to do this and it is up to you to choose which way you prefer.
One way is place one piece in each corner, and another one in the center. If you want you can use a combination of the clear crystals with clusters of Green Apophyllite, as either will be fine.
Another way is to simply place them with one stone facing in each of the four directions, and one in the middle. This will create an energy grid, that will clear, purify and energize the room with spiritual light.
Whichever way you choose to use it they have a powerful resonance that will transmit its energy throughout the area where they are located.
The clear Apophyllite crystals, have a different vibration than the Green stones but they can be combined when using them for this purpose.
The clear Apophyllite crystals are worth having in your life as they will infuse your light-body with high vibration energy, that is powerful to aid your healing, both spiritually and physically.
These crystals are Gemini birthstones, and you may benefit from wearing it. While its less common to see pendants made from the clear stone, it is possible to get Green Apophyllite pendants.
The green crystals have a similar energy, except they are more heart based stones. Stones of either color have a strong vibration that will elevate your spirits, and energize your entire being.
The lovely clear pyramids are particularly wonderful to work with, and are easy to use as well as being useful tools for using for a number of purposes.
Its easy to place a pyramid on your forehead to stimulate your pineal gland, when you you are doing a psychic boosting meditation, as this will aid your spiritual awakening.
You can also use it for scrying, or simply have one in your environment, as they are excellent stones to bring your spiritual growth to the next level.
Apophyllite creates excellent healing actions in the body, and this is related to the light and energy that infuses your system. If you do Reiki, it will help your client to go into a deeper state of relaxation and aid them to heal.
Use it by simply placing a piece of this crystal, and pyramids work well for this purpose, in the room where you do the healing.
Apophyllite has a strong action to aid spiritual healing on a deep soul level. It is a helpful stone to aid depression, anxiety and stress related issues.
In summary: it will help to dissolve blockages in many areas of the body, and may be combined with any other stone to boost that stone's energy to bring through healing.
Use it to aid allergic asthma, by placing a piece on the chest. It has a good healing action within the lymphatic system due to the high water content of these stones.
It also aids your respiratory system and your eyes, and they say that if you lie with a pyramid on each eye that it will help your eyesight. These stones are also helpful to aid you with decision making.
While normal jewelry might be hard to make from this stone, I have solved the problem by putting a small Apophyllite pyramid into a macrame pouch and wearing that around my neck.
You can get macrame pouches from Ebay here, and change the crystals you wear easily.
This for me was an easier solution as its not like the smooth tumble stones that are easy to slip in your pocket as they have pointy pieces that would stick into you. This way I can keep it close to me easily.
Using this stone on its own will help you to make enhanced contact with angels and other beings in the higher dimensions, including guides that may be wishing to work with you.
You could also combine it with other specific stones that aid this contact, such as Purple Tanzanite, Elestial Quartz Crystals, Danburite, Phenacite, Cryolite, Creedite, Blue Celestite, Herkimer Diamonds, and Stellar Beam Calcite aka Dog Tooth Calcite.
This crystal works very well in combination with other high high vibration crystals and stones.
While you could really choose to use it with any of the group of high vibration stones, it is helpful to combine it with other stones that have an action to aid contact with the angelic realms, such as Selenite, Elestial Quartz and Datolite.
