View Full Version : Sodalite
I saw some crytsals in a shop yesterday and was drawn to the Blue Sodalite. I bought it and meditated with it last night.
I had some very vivid dreams - I googled Sodalite and found the following:-
Helps with logic, clear thinking, ideas, communication and truth. Provides protection against negative energy, distress and mental anguish. Good for pancreas, endocrine system and lymphatic system. It helps combat internal conflict or insomnia and is good for neck, mouth, hearing and blood pressure. Generates courage and creative expression. Chakra: Throat and third eye.
As I am suffering from anxiety at the moment, I was obviously drawn to the right crystal! I am also still working on my psychic development, which is seems to help with too.
I just wondered if anyone else has experienced vivid dreams after using this lovely crystal - or any other Sodalite stories you may have?
I just recently had a very unique experience w/ Sodalite. I was told by a friend I needed to open and clear my throat chakra so I was using a sodalite pendant on a choker to help me with it. I wore it a few days and was fine. When I went to school, I started to feel like the necklace was too tight and started to feel heavy. I talked to 2 friends that day about me trying to open my chakra and one said that the stone didn't want to do it. Apparently my sodalite felt that there was too much energy in the class and b/c opening up my chakra would open me up to a lot, it was trying to tell me to take it off.
I thought it was neat that it started to pull itself away and was saying "Take me off, please!!" while I thought " Hmm, how odd..." I really need to start paying more attention!
I attended a crystal healing workshop a few months ago. Paid up was looking forward to it woke up the day of the workshop and bugger huge sore throat and chest infection. Dragged myself to the workshop where the teacher and I prepared a sodalite elixir for me to drink. Drank it up and next day throat and chest were fine pity I didn't do anything to nip the rest of the cold in the bud I was laid low for a week with the flu part but I think the sodalite stopped the throat and chest part of the cold from developing. Everyone else ended up with both I got off with only the flu.
I also brought a large sphere a few weeks ago of sodalite and it is amazing. It has a really vital, upbeat type of energy.
I was studying lapidary. Took a large piece of blue sodalite and cut a piece off and it became a good size oval gem. I polished it like crazy and it is really lovely. My adult son saw it and said, "Can I have it overnight" ? So I let him as he had an exam to pass. Anyway, I gave it to him this was over 10 years ago. Last Friday he came in and said to me, Remember this and pulled out the sodalite! He offered it back but I didn't take it. I knew he liked it and uses it as his "charm".
I do not do lapidary any more but it was a very interesting phase of my life.
I have Soladite on my computer to help keep the electromagnetics back a bit...over the summer which was very hot...it was really unbearable at the computer...it has helped. Also have had quiet vivid dreams as soon as I placed a few under my pillow...they are "resting"..now but I will try them again at some point.
I was drawn to this stone at a Metaphysical fair in Denver, CO. It was fashioned as a pendant (w/ sterling silver). It has an amazing sedative effect--very calming! However, it has also been very useful in maintaining weight. I've come across many books that have mentioned the metabolic dimension of Sodalite, and I have experienced it first-hand.
After obtaining the pendant, I wore 24/7 for a couple of months...and without even trying I lost five pounds. And when I stopped wearing it, I gained the weight back.
Anyone else have a metabolic experience with Sodalite?
I'm glad to see all these experiences listed concerning sodalite.
I periodically make a journey to the local pet food warehouse outlet to see what they have in the way of aquarium rocks. On past excursions there, I have picked up HUGE chunks of : Rose quartz, selenite, obsidian, lepidolite, and now...sodalite! I got 3 absolute boulders of the stuff for about 4 bucks. They have petrified wood too, but I haven't gotten any yet.
It pays to know your minerals, Ladies and Gentlemen. These rocks ROCK, and the price is right. I saw a big piece of unpolished, uncut natural rose quartz going for 55 dollars in a new age store, and it wasn't as large (or as high quality) as the one I got from "Dave's Pet Food City" for $1.29 per pound.
I can only imagine what that new age place would charge for these huge pieces of sodalite.
I really like this peaceful blue stone, and am looking forward to seeing how it works with me.
oooh, I know this thread is a bit old, but I was just searching for information on Sodalite.
Actually, just placed one in my water glass.
DarkElectric, that is a wonderful idea about looking for crystals in pet shop's. The only thing we have here is a Wal-Mart, I'm not sure if we even have fish for sale there any more, but this is a great idea to keep in mind when looking for gemstones at a more cost efficient price.
I can't wear my little sodalite pendant. Like Asiyah, it pulls at me and feels heavy, even to the point where I start feeling depressed or moody. Strange. Yet labradorite - no problem, I wear it all the time.
Love, love, love Darkelectic's idea for getting good stones at the pet shop. I've never tried that but certainly will.
I got a wonderful bag of rocks, mostly jaspers, from a pot shop. The rocks are tumbled and probably river rocks that are meant to go around plants as mulch, I think. They are lovely pebbles that would have cost quite a bit on an individual basis but the entire bag (about 50 rocks) was only $6. And many of the pebbles are much larger than what I've seen offered at stores or on line for "crystal healing."
Wizzle you just reminded me that looking in second hand stores and flea markets may produce a few good stones as well, as long as we remember to look towards the aquarium stuff they may have stuck back in a corner somewhere out of the way.
Actually, some of the statuary they use in aquariums are very interesting, especially the ones that look like old rocks covered with a dash of multicolors here and there, as they would make for neat props for some gemstones.
I know this thread was originally about sodalite, but I had to share my experience of delight when I went to a gardening centre.
We went to see my partners parents a couple of days ago (They live a fair distance away) and it was nice and sunny and for some reason I just had to go and visit the big garden centre.
To cut a long story short, this garden centre has it all, pet supplies, swimming pools, childrens play frames (Which I was far too big for :() and an aquarium. Well... they had tons of big, rough crystals to buy by the kilo. And me being me in very large tones to my partner: 'I remember reading on the forum that you can find crystal bargins in places like these :D' and I did. I brought large chunks of aventurine, sodalite and rose quartz. I love them but I didn't love the weight of having to carry them across the London underground :bugeyed:
So i just had to press the search function on here so I could share my finds and to thank DarkElectric, wizzle & the rest of you guys for mentioning it.
(I will have to take photos of my finds.)
I have found that sodalite can be calming and keeps your wits about you in a tense atmosphere. Also, I too have bought large, rough, very nice aquarium stones at pet stores. I bet they have them in every store. I have 3 of rose quartz, a sodalite, a mica and a petrified wood. Good prices, too! I've also found sodalite (and other gemstones) donuts at a ben franklin store. I put them on a cord and can also wear them in bed. I'm always looking for a way to find more stones!
