Scolecite History Mythology Information: Commercially Scolecite mainly comes out of India and Iceland however there are other locations around the world where it is found. Scolecite has a wonderfully unique look, it forms in fans that spray out like wings, even when carved or tumbled you can see the lines of the fan/wings shine though. The name comes from the Greek word meaning ‘a worm’ due to Scolecite curling into worm-like shapes and fusing when heated.
Scolecite Metaphysical Healing Properties: Scolecite will assist to awaken your heart and bring deep inner peace and personal spiritual transformation. It helps to connect all areas of your past, present, and future, and working with it can assist you to be in and find perfect moments and release all blockages you are holding. Scolecite has a very high vibration and is particularly beneficial with aiding communication with spirit and higher self. It will help you to take control of your life and bring the things you desire into being so that you create the life that you want. It is great for stress relief and as a sleep aid as it is very calming and relaxing.
As Scolecite bonds and joins together to form a larger ‘better’ end product, it will show you and allow you to remember that working together in a group you can achieve a wonderful end result and it assists in removing conflict and finding a better coherence within. Just like the single strands bonding together it allows you to create and find better bonds with those around you so that the larger picture or great whole can be seen and improved on.
I love working with Scolecite it has such a gentle energy that makes you want to spread your wing and fly as you realize you are one with the universe and can do and achieve anything. Affirmation: I spread my wings and connect to every realm in the universe with peace and openness.
