Seeking Wisdom

George Bernard Shaw once said, “Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” So how can we stay clear of false knowledge and ignorance? Wisdom is the key. We must open our minds and our hearts to accept wisdom. It is the quest for knowledge that some of us crave. Even if seeking to expand your mind is not what drives you, pursuing wisdom can broaden your horizons and even open up your heart to more willingly accept love. Crystals can help you find the wisdom you are looking for. They can also open up your mind, body, and spirit to be more accepting of the wisdom you do find.

Indigo is a soft color ray that is made for introspection, and crystals of this color can help you immensely in your quest for wisdom. Indigo is the color of virtue and maturity. Indigo colored stones combine the intuition of the violet ray with the trust of the pure blue ray. They can help you find your way to a higher plane of consciousness. The indigo crystals are beautiful and powerful stones that will bring you reflexive awareness and comprehension of complex relationships. Indigo is also the color of judgment and long life.

Indigo Crystals Bring You Wisdom, Truth, Dignity, and Spiritual Mastery

Indigo colored crystals bring you experience, judgment, a long life, maturity, prestige, and aids in avoiding foolishness. As you can see these can be used as the building blocks to gain wisdom. We need the experience to teach us, the judgment to make the right choices, a long life so we can fulfill our seeking of wisdom, maturity to comprehend the knowledge, and avoiding foolishness so we can avoid any traps in our path along the way. Indigo is truly the color for wisdom, truth, and knowledge seekers.

Like a crisp, dark winter sky, Iolite, in shifting shades of violet-blue carries the spirit of journey, of dreams and intuition, of exploration and illumination. Iolite is often used by those embarking on a shamanic journey. It is also a powerful aid to helping you remove unwanted parts of your life and restoring balance and happiness. It is a stone of virtue and excellent for keeping your energy levels high. Iolite examines the inner path of the deep self. It assists in letting go of the belief that one needs to control inner experiences, and dissolves fear of the unknown or suppressed parts of the psyche. It increases the capacity to move forward, and allows for the understanding that the examination of one’s wounds is the most direct path to healing. It is a stone of inner treasure, helping to uncover the lost parts of oneself, and in receiving the peace one’s spiritual journey brings.




Iolite carries a violet-blue energy that activates and clears the Third Eye Chakra, opening communication and awareness from higher vibratory realms.



What Other Authors Say


Judy Hall suggests Emerald which is used to seek and find love.

Emerald imparts mental clarity, strengthens memory, inspires a deep inner knowing, and broadens vision. It is a wisdom stone, promoting discernment and truth, and aiding eloquent expression. It helps bring to the surface what is unconsciously known. Emerald is extremely beneficial to mutual understanding within a group of people stimulating cooperation


Lapis Lazuli

<p”>Michael Gienger recommends Lapis Lazuli which is a valuable talisman for gaining respect and keeping negative energy away.

Lapis Lazuli bestows wisdom and honesty and reveals our own inner truth. It helps us be ourselves and liberates us from compromises and holding back.



Robert Simmons advocates Alexandrite which aids in balancing of the mind and emotions.

Alexandrite is a stone of high wisdom and heart energy. It facilitates one in moving through grief or self pity and enables one to perceive one’s own point of power in the moment.

In Summary

When we are seeking wisdom in our lives, we may not be sure of the right place to start. In truth, we do not start on the outside, we start from within. We must open our heart, spirit, soul, and mind in order to accept the wisdom we are searching for. We believe crystals can help you in more ways than one. Not only can it light the path for you to seek wisdom, it can also act as a facilitator to make you more open to the knowledge you wish to receive. When on a quest for knowledge we suggest using indigo colored crystals such as Iolite. You can also trying crystals that other authors have recommended such as Emerald, Lapis Lazuli, and Alexandrite.
