Calcite: Positive & Motivating
Calcite is a beautiful and handy healing crystal! Upon first glance it might seem plain and unexciting, especially when compared to other fancy crystals. But there is so much more to calcite than what meets the physical eyes.
Similar to quartz, calcite is one of the most abundant crystals on Earth, both in quantity and in variations. This is a powerful cleansing crystal, and it leaves a sense of serenity in its wake.
I absolutely adore calcite–I love the assortment of colors and its versatility. Almost every color of calcite makes an appearance in my personal collection. Still need clear calcite to complete the rainbow.
Between you and me, blue calcite is my favorite! Its color reminds me of the bright, summer sky being reflected on the ocean.
This blog post will go more in depth about the general healing properties of the glorious calcite crystal, as well as the specialty energies associated with each of its color variations.
Calcite Healing Properties
Calcite makes a great go-to crystal, especially for beginners. Its energy is well-rounded and offers a variety of healing benefits.
All calcite has strong, active energy. It banishes laziness by boosting motivation, helping us to take action on our goals and get things done. This stone would be right at home in an office setting, especially if paired with pyrite.
Emotional intelligence describes how well our emotions and intellect work together in harmony. Calcite helps strengthen this connection by alleviating stress, stabilizing our mood, and uncovering repressed emotions. It also helps us gain more control over the flow of thoughts and ideas.[mailerlite_form form_id=8]
Beyond emotional intelligence, calcite helps strengthen our connection to our Higher Self (the part of your soul that is most closely connected to the Universe).
This, in turn, heightens all of our psychic abilities including intuition, clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance, clairsentience, astral projection, and channeling. Plus more!
Calcite comes in a rainbow of colors, which is why it’s so fantastic at clearing out the energy in our bodies. All layers of the aura are tended to with just one cleansing stone.
