Because of its calming properties, Howlite is commonly used as a sleep aid. Try placing some under your pillow or beside your bed to create a relaxed atmosphere at night. Where else do you like to relax? A reading chair, your yoga spot, beside the bathtub? They’re all a great spot for the stone.
I look at crystals and gemstones as a beautiful tool for accountability. Their presence gives you a nudge – a tireless reminder of the life you’re ready to step into. They help you to work on yourself in a deeper way. But ultimately, you are your own healer.
