Everyone Needs Blue Apatite!
I decided to talk about blue apatite today because………..well I think we could all use a little positivity and something that is uplifting right about now! The Greeks were the first to recognize the chameleon-like qualities of Apatite and its ability to resemble other crystals, The Apatite crystal stone meaning comes from the Greek word “to deceive,” owing its name to its unique properties. A combination of different levels of fluorine, chlorine, and hydroxide, the Apatite crystal ranges in color from deep blue-green to green to yellow and sometimes pink or violet. Made from a common group of minerals containing a calcium phosphate base, Apatite reminds us that truly knowing oneself is the key to opening up the doors of the universe, a place where anything is possible. While Apatite is found in quite a few locations including Myanmar (Burma), Brazil, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Norway, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Mexico, Canada and the United States, the main places that the blue stone comes from are Madagascar, Russia, Brazil and India.
It has a strong action within the Third Eye and Throat chakras and is known to aid the development of your psychic gifts, including mental telepathy, clairvoyance, or psychic visions. This stone would be of great assistance to anyone with a job requiring strong and clear communication. The Throat chakra is it aids in the release of energy from other chakras in the body by being the modality in which truth is expressed. When blocked, it will affect not only the throat area, but any other area where energy is being held back and not spoken. When in balance, there is no energy stagnation so the mind, body, and spirit are all in harmony resulting in a feeling of serenity, and flow. Blue Apatite works extremely well with the throat chakra in helping you in speaking your truths. Aiding in honesty, and openness, this stone is great for writers, speakers, and poets.
Blue Apatite encourages the growth of your spirituality and health. It will bring forth a confident energy to allow a flow of self-expression. Known also to work the Third Eye chakra, blue apatite has been used as a powerful healing stone to assist in clearing energetic blocks in the chakras, meridians, and the aura. It works to release emotional trauma, and hurtful memories from your past. It breaks through energies that contribute to mental exhaustion by raising your vibration to feel more positive. On a spiritual level, blue apatite works to balance energies of our own Divine masculine and feminine qualities, of what is often referred to as your Yin and Yang energies.
This stone will also assist in healing the heart and helping clear your past lives. It offers a high level of spiritual guidance and can be used with record keepers to recover past life information as well as that of ancient civilizations. Blue Apatite crystals are particularly powerful to aid you to be able to experience 'vertical vision' (where you may see multiple levels of consciousness occurring). Apatite can help you to develop your psychic powers, as it will stimulate the birth of psychic gifts.

It will assist you with lucid dreaming and astral travel, and it encourages you to act in a more humanitarian way. It helps you accept yourself as you really are, and to gain greater self-confidence.

It may open you to deep inner wisdom, and you may gain access to the Akashic Records. It has an ability to encourage intense spiritual attunement. Often there is an element of relating to past life issues that you may have deep feelings about, and the vibration of this stone helps works through the heart to help you in dealing with any grief that you may experience.

Since it is a crystal with a high vibration, you may find that using blue apatite may cause dizziness, especially if you are not used to working with crystal healing energy. it is best to pair this crystal with another that can provide grounding energies, such as Hematite, Onyx, Obsidian, Smoky Quartz, or Black Tourmaline. Black Onyx an excellent stone for grounding and it serves dual purpose as it will also help prevent psychic attack. You may wish to use Blue Apatite with Rose Quartz to enhance the vibration of attracting and giving unconditional love; or use it with Rhodonite to increase the possibility of attaining new talents.
