Sodalite is one of the stones of the deep journey. It provides insight into the self and a dispassionate assessment of one’s motivations, strengths, weaknesses,desires, gifts and patterns of personal destiny. It stimulates psychic vision and multileveled understanding, sparking the ‘aha!’ moments wherein one sees the pattern that connects the inner and outer worlds and the events that happen in both places at once.
As a stone of insight and pattern recognition, Sodalite can aid astrologers, numerologists, tarot readers, as well as those who consult other Oracles. It helps one translate the archetypal patterns revealed in the oracles into meaningful understanding regarding the events in earthly life. It also helps intuitive readers assess the personalities and energy patterns of their clients.
Sodalite can increase one’s capacity for intuition. It increases the frequency and accuracy of one’s ‘hunches’ and gives one confidence in one’s inner knowing. It helps one to let go of the self-judgement that causes second-guessing. It also facilitates entering a deep meditative state and opens the subconscious. This helps one recall and heal wounds from the past and receive symbolic imagery from the wise part of the self that communicates without words.

Healing Properties of Sodalite
Sodalite evokes images from deep within the subconscious, enabling one to perceive one’s core lessons in this lifetime and to understand where one is on the path to completing them. Sodalite acts as a guide or inner travels- through meditation, dream time, or shamanic journeying. It aids one in staying focused on the moment, without being distracted by past or future concerns. Sodalite helps one integrate all aspects of oneself into the now, so one may use all one’s learning and experiences to deal with the lesson at hand. Sodalite can be effective in achieving hypnotic or trance states. It removes one from the pressures and worries of life and allows one to sink deeply into the subconscious and unconscious minds. It can be used to help one recall one’s dreams or to practice lucid dreaming.
Sodalite helps one to perceive where one’s path lies. It acts as a ‘signpost’ on one’s personal journey, helping one become immersed in the experience of spiritual growth, without obsessing on the ‘magic tricks’ that can go with one’s awakening. For instance, it can open one’s psychic perception, yet prevent one from becoming egoic about one’s psychic abilities. Sodalite is good for psychic protection and can also clear electromagnetic smog.
Sodalite cultivates detachment from the concerns and worries of everyday life. It can reduce stress and anxiety by allowing one to see one’s reality from a higher, more serene perspective.

Sodalite can also help to release fears, phobias and guilt.
