Blue Lace Agate
Best for: Those who have trouble letting go of a false facade due to ego or fear which has affected the ability to express one’s truest thoughts and authentic self.
Reminiscent of the beautiful blue sky on a peaceful summer day, Blue Lace Agate’s calm and chill vibes teleport you to a relaxing beach holiday. Unblock your mind as your worries and anxieties are cast aside.
If at times you feel like you need to take a breather from life, slow down and enjoy the calming breeze with Blue Lace Agate. Its soothing nature helps to release erratic, unhelpful emotions for you to get back on track with a clear state of mind and steer yourself in the right direction towards your goals.
Can’t seem to find the lyrics to your melody? Blue Lace Agate can inspire you to fill in the blanks. Cheers to expressing yourself clearly and communicating with ease.
I find that Blue Lace Agate is a great starter stone for troubled kids and grownups alike with issues relating to communication or nervousness. For those who express themselves in ways that do not reflect your truest intentions due to ego issues or overthinking, Blue Lace Agate gives off this surge of wave-like energy that flows through the system to create a comfort bubble space for pent up emotions and stuck energy before releasing out. Just holding the stone in your hand (the non-dominant hand is typically more receptive to energy but it can differ) helps to calm your entire body. If you find that you tend to absorb energy from others easily or feel as though you are at the brink of explosion, this stone creates an outlet for release. This means it may trigger an emotional release, feeling of hunger, body aches or a sudden change in perspective. Such triggers are normal. After the release, feelings of tranquility follow, allowing you to breathe/function normally again.
