Black Kyanite aids in the manifestation of vision and clairvoyance. Full of healing energy, Black Kyanite is a favorite among energy healers, and is especially helpful in body layouts. Black Kyanite can be placed on any chakra to send healing energy to any tears or holes in the chakras and the aura. Its fan shape can help to sweep away any unwanted energies.
Black Kyanite can also help to open the lines of communication between people. Keeping a piece with you can help out in situations of conflict or misunderstanding.
Use Black Kyanite for grounding during a chakra alignment or meditation. Black Kyanite works with all Chakras, focusing most on the Root Chakra. Many crystal healers like it because it can be grounding and energizing at the same time. Black Kyanite is an excellent meditation tool. Meditating with Black Kyanite can help one to come up with important insights resulting from exploration of the subconscious mind. Often used to explore past-lives, Black Kyanite can also help one to anticipate how current actions affect future lives.
In general, Kyanite transmits and amplifies high-frequency energies, making it a great stone for attunements and meditation. Kyanite brings a calming, tranquilizing energy to the body. Kyanite clears and calms you in preparation for meditation, and assists in receiving intuitive and psychic thoughts, as well as dream recall. Kyanite restores Qi (or Ki) to the physical body, and balances yin/yang energies.
Please Note: Although Kyanite may not need clearing/cleansing as often as most crystals, we suggest clearing your Kyanite as often as is needed, based on (1) the amount of use it gets (how hard is your crystal working for you?) and (2) the amount of energy that your crystal has been exposed to over a period of time. When clearing your crystals, always make sure that your intent is clearly stated, so the crystal knows that it is being given some time off and needs to recharge itself.
