The Ancient Greeks were the first to recognise the chameleon-like qualities of Apatite.  In fact, the Apatite crystal’s meaning comes from the Greek word “to deceive”, but before you start comparing Apatite to your cheating ex, let Apatite clear away the toxic fog and remind you that what lies behind us is of little consequence.  It’s the energy that lies within that holds the key to eternal happiness.

Apatite is a creativity enhancing stone that can mystically stimulate the thoughts and ideas. It is used, often in conjunction with meditation, to increase intellect, imagination, and intuitive and psychic awareness.  It is said to help you maintain focus, learn, concentrate effectively, think clearly, and communicate better.

Apatite is a powerful meditation or psychic awareness tool. It can clear the aura, enable spiritual attunement, and bring powerful psychic awareness.  Apatite is used very successfully mystically for lucid dreaming, deep meditation, astral travel, past life work, rebirthing, and inner wisdom.  It is a stone that promotes psychic communication, clairvoyance, and clairaudience.

If you’re in the mood to break on through to the other side, put The Doors on the turntable, place a stone over the third-eye chakra in between the eyebrows and get ready for the Lizard King to take you on a magic carpet ride into an expanded spiritual dimension.
