Howlite is an extremely calming stone. Placed under a pillow, it is an excellent antidote to insomnia, especially when this is caused by an overactive mind.
Howlite links into the spiritual dimensions, opening attunement and preparing the mind to receive wisdom and insights. It assists journeys out of the body and accessing past lives. Focusing your sight into a piece of howlite can transport you to another time or dimension. Placed on the third eye, it opens memories of other lives, including those in the “between-life” state and the spiritual dimensions.
Howlite formulates ambitions, both spiritual and material, and aids in achieving them. It teaches patience and helps to eliminate rage and uncontrolled anger that may be directed towards you. It also helps to overcome a tendency to criticalness and selfishness, strengthening positive character traits.
It stills the mind and is excellent for sleep or meditation. It allows for calm and reasoned communication to take place. This stone strengthens memory and stimulates a desire for knowledge. It can calm turbulent emotions, especially those that have past life causes. It releases the strings that tie old emotions to present-life triggers.
