Crystals For Compassion
Compassion is part of the human condition. While it has been shown in animal species for years now, it was originally thought to be a trait that was unique to human beings. Arthur Schopenhauer once said, Compassion is the basis of morality. When we recognize that we are lacking compassion in our daily life, we may begin to feel a bit lost. If compassion is the basis for morality, then without it, morality would be lost. It is hard sometimes to hold on to compassion when we live in such a dark world sometimes. We may feel like giving up. The soothing and influential vibrations of healing crystals can once again restore your compassion where it may have been lost or diminished. The reverse also works if you are looking to receive compassion. Others in your life could be too busy to see something is going on with you or notice an issue you are struggling with. With the right crystals, you can help draw more compassion into your life.
There is no other color that is more serene, peaceful, or patient than blue. Blue is the color of ice reflecting the slowly lightening winter sky as the deep violets depart and the sun climbs higher every day. As the winter slowly gives way to the budding spring, and life quickens, ready to burst forth, blue marks the beginning of life and emotion. Blue crystals are the crystals of trust. When we seek to become more sincere, act more responsibly, or become more trustworthy or faithful, these crystals give us the focus we require. Blue crystals also bring you water energy. Water energy is the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful.

Dark blue crystals teach us humanity, discretion, and honor. Dark blue crystals help us act more charitably, and focus our efforts on service to others.

Sodalite is a gorgeous deep blue crystal that brings you feelings of sensitivity and compassion. It is an Enhancer Filter Crystal. Enhancers are minerals and crystals with internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. They can focus and enhance our energy on the feelings of improvements we desire and help turn them to the thoughts that will produce the actions we need to improve. Sodalite with its earth power of a Filter, is used to keep negative energy away from us. When we want help to see the best in others, to give others the benefit of the doubt, to see the good side of something, use a Sodalite. It is too easy in life to see the glass half empty, the child as a poor student, or the spouse as a slob. Filters, like Sodalite, help us see the glass half full, the child as a loving, well-meaning young lady, and the spouse as an excellent provider, devoted to his family. Dark Blue Sodalite is for enhancing respect and compassion in ourselves.
Lapis Lazuli is a dark blue crystal, often touted as the stone of universal truth. Deep beneath its striking exterior are powerful vibrations that can help you give and receive compassion. Lapis encourages dignity in friendship and social ability. It encourages the qualities of honesty, compassion and uprightness when dealing with others. It provides an awareness of one’s motivations and beliefs, and gives a clearer perspective of one’s whole life. It reveals not only one’s limitations, but the opportunities for growth and to utilize one’s gifts and abilities. A stone of truth, Lapis encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. A Lapis grid brings calm and loving communication for a home with temperamental teenagers, or children with Asperger’s syndrome, autism, or attention-deficit disorder.
Blue Sodalite is associated with the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakra to be expressed. If it is out of balance or blocked it can affect the health of the other chakras. When it is in balance we can express what we think and what we feel.

What Authors Say About Crystals
Judy Hall suggests Angelite which is a stone of quiet strength and acceptance.
Spiritually, Angelite is filled with compassion. It transmutes pain and disorder into wholeness and healing, opening the way for spiritual inspiration.
Robert Simmons advocates Celestite which offers a gentle, uplifting energy which can raise and expand one’s awareness into the higher realms.
Celestite awakes compassion within the heart, and through the heart’s eye of compassion we are able to revisit the occasions of past attachments and to forgive all who were involved.
Sometimes the harshness of life can run down our compassion for others. We start to become unaware of our self-involvement and our lessened sensitivity to others. The opposite can also affect us, when others are not giving us the compassion and understanding we need to get through tough situations. In times like these we can use the healing hues of dark blue crystals. We suggest using dark blue colored crystals such as Sodalite and Lapis Lazuli. You can also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Angelite and Celestite.
