HOWLITE, also know as magnesite, is a magnesium carbonate mineral with a rhombohedral crystal system and a hardness of 3 to 4. Howlite is frequently white, but can also occur in shades of gray, yellow or brown. Crystalline specimens of Howlite have been found in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Howlite is one of the most powerful stones for activating the third eye and crown chakras. Placing one of these stones upon the forehead and closing the eyes, one can expect to feel a rhythmic pulsing energy, becoming stronger as the minutes pass. This is the beginning of the activation of the eye of inner vision in the prefrontal lobes of the brain. If one receives the full experience of this opening, the crown chakra blooms into the “thousand-petaled lotus,” and this experience indeed feels like a flower suddenly opening at the top of the head.
Howlite can help one in the process of self-reflection and can clarify inner seeing. It is something of a “truth detector” when one is doing inner work, and it can help one to see through the unconscious blinders that may keep one in a state of confusion. Among Howlite’s mystical properties is the awakening of the mind to communication with the heart.
Howlite doesn’t activate the heart chakra, but it does stimulate the part of the brain/mind which can hear and respond to the heart’s “voice.” This listening to the heart is the beginning of true wisdom
