Kyanite comes in a few different colors but they all share some of the same properties. The mineral itself goes by a few different names, cyanite, rhaeticite and disthene which in Greek means ‘twice + force’; and this is due to this mineral having two different hardness measurements depending on if you measure it lengthwise or across the width of the mineral. When we think of how a mineral harnesses energy, it is always good to look at the physical properties of the mineral in question. This crystal forms in thin blades or what is referred to as ‘radiating masses’, this is when it looks like there are crystal needles shooting in many directions from one central location. Kyanite on an energetic level, operates very similar to how it appears visually.
Regardless of the color, this mineral applies its energy from two angles, no matter the application; it aggressively clears and it gently harmonizes. Just as the mineral itself looks as though it could slice or cut; the energy of kyanite works to instantly align all energy centers, cutting through any blockages that may be present. Kyanite is a high vibrational crystal that works to raise vibrations and strengthen the entire energetic system. It is one of the premier crystals to assist with ‘cutting cords’, assisting us in removing all that no longer serves our greatest good.
All of the colors of kyanite carry strong healing energy and they instantly align all of the chakras and subtle bodies, clearing the pathways and meridians. They restore life force energy to the body and promote a calming effect on the entire being. They work to clear away chaotic energy and leave behind clarity that allows us to function at the highest possible level and to hear our own intuitive voice.
Green kyanite promotes growth and it works to dispel the idea that every unpleasantness is caused by karma. It reveals the role we play in creating our own situations and consequences. It helps to rid one of illusion, anger, and frustration, and increases logical thinking. This crystal helps us to dig deeper within ourselves while branching out to experience new interests and talents.
It is said kyanite does not require cleansing and charging however I strongly suggest all crystal be cleansed and charged based off of how they feel and not a set schedule. Green kyanite works with all chakras but resonates best with the heart. Clearing out any blockages and promoting balance within this chakra is important so that we may understand our needs and emotions clearly. Green Kyanite connects with the truth of your heart, providing the strength and emotional endurance needed to honor your true self.
