Blue Kyanites have a high vibration and create very rapid transfers of energy. They open the psychic channels and activate the mind centers, accentuating one’s mental capacities and enhancing one’s ability to ‘download’ information from higher sources. They can make telepathic communication between individuals easier, especially if both parties are using them. If one chooses to sleep with Blue Kyanite, the process of lucid dreaming will be greatly stimulated. Kyanite is a stone of connection, of building bridges of Light between disparate aspects of experience. It can bridge energetic blocks in the aura and emotional blocks between people and can help restructure mental energies and habits that keep one from moving to higher levels of learning. Kyanite’s powerful energy creates pathways of energy where before there were none. Kyanite can assist in negotiations, diplomatic missions, arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people. It acts as an energetic bridge, allowing disparate energies to gently move into resonance and find a common frequency. It can help one find a way to bridge different beliefs and ideas. It can assist one in finding a way to incorporate all aspects of self into a harmonious whole. Kyanite allows one to forge one’s own unique path by bringing together one’s various interests, skills and knowledge. This aids in seeing one’s unique mosaic of gifts and how they can be used for one’s Soul path on Earth. Kyanite initiates psychic ability, promotes communication with higher beings, and can be used to open the third eye during meditation or healing sessions.
Black Kyanite can clear blocked energies in any chakra and can replenish the meridian system. It is both grounding and energizing, increasing one’s vibrational frequencies without taking one out of the body. It is useful in energetic healing, because it clears imbalances and brings forth an unhindered flow throughout one’s various systems
