Blue Lace Agate always gets me feeling dreamy whenever I look at it or hold it because of that beautiful soft blue color. I knew the minute I saw mine three years ago that I needed to have it in my collection. I didn’t realize its strength and power until I began using it. It’s now one of those crystals that I carry on me several times a week, depending on what I’m doing and where I’m off to, especially if communication with others is involved or I’m working on creative projects. Blue Lace Agate is not just about any communication, it is more importantly geared towards open and honest communication from a loving place. Speaking your truth. Blue is a color of peace, loyalty and trust and these things will be strengthened as well.
This crystal is great for communication of all kinds as it pertains to the Throat Chakra. If you’re the kind of person that feels as though you have trouble speaking up for yourself and sharing your true feelings, then this crystal should be added to your daily “crystal-scription.” It will help you open that Throat Chakra right up so that you are able to express your emotions openly and honestly and have the courage to do so. If you find that despite using this crystal, you are still having trouble expressing yourself, then evaluate the strength of your Sacral Chakra as well. The Sacral Chakra governs our emotions in general (Carnelian or Orange Calcite can help open this up). By balancing and opening both the Throat and Sacral Chakras, you should be able to bring those feelings up and out, rather than keeping them locked inside. Repressed emotions are usually not a very good thing to hold on to as they have the potential to manifest as physical symptoms later on.
The Throat Chakra is also responsible for our sense of hearing, so if you feel you are not heard when you speak to someone or to a group, consider using Blue Lace Agate. It can help you effectively communicate what you need to without being rude or disruptive to others by giving you the ability to speak up. It is a great crystal to use when speaking in public, or for those individuals who communicate on a large scale on a daily or more than usual basis. It helps you to get your words across smoothly, engage the audience and really have them not just hear what you’re saying, but listen. Bonus: it helps quell the nerves and promote calm. If you are lacking confidence and courage, carry around crystals that open your Solar Plexus Chakra as well, as this is the chakra that holds our personal power. Citrine is a great one for this – see my blog on Citrine here – December 2017 – Citrine. When used in conjunction, this dream team is a force to be reckoned with.
Blue Lace Agate can also help with communication and hearing beyond the physical realm – clairaudience. From personal experience, I would have to say this crystal enhances my abilities further to be able to hear messages from the Spirit Realm. It’s a great stone to connect with Spirit and open to your Angels and Spirit Guides. The light blue color is likened to a Heavenly blue sky. That’s another reason why this crystal holds a special place in my heart.
Blue Lace Agate can also help on the opposite end of the spectrum, for those that have a habit of talking too much. Too much gossip, too much negativity – you know exactly the kind of people I am talking about. These aren’t just people who love to talk, they are the ones that seem to let words slip out of their mouths without first thinking of what they want to say, causing hurt feelings. The “Woops! No filter!” people. It’s never really an ok thing to hurt someone’s feelings. If you recognize this about yourself and think to yourself, “shoot I really need to work on that” then consider using Blue Lace Agate. Don’t worry, it won’t totally shut you down. But it will bring about balance to that area so that you have the ability to know when to speak your mind, and when some things are better left unsaid.
Physically, this crystal can help with issues pertaining to the throat (sore throat, laryngitis, strept throat, etc.), vocal cords, thyroid imbalance, tonsils, neck, swollen glands, and upper lungs.
Hope you enjoy this crystal as much as I do!
