Turning to Howlite for Patience and Rest

IMG_20160519_212316I toss and turn. I move my pillows around. I kick my blanket off and then pull it back close to me. I try for about an hour to sleep on the couch, and then the cat wakes me.

Howlite is good for insomnia I remember, and when I retreat back to bed, my mala comes with me and I tuck it under my pillow.

I sleep. I sleep well. Night after night it becomes my ritual to place my mala underneath my pillow, allowing me to absorb the healing energy as I settle in for a night of sleep.

The effects are clear during the day too. I find that on the nights that I remember to rest with the howlite nearby, my patience comes more easily in the daylight.

Patience and rest, two properties of howlite. Under my pillow and around my neck, two ways I use my mala.

When I posted the picture of my howlite, sodalite, and garnet mala, people felt drawn to it. I was in a store the other day and someone told me it caught their eye.

And so, I created another one.

Whether you are seeking rest, patience, or the commingling of white and gray (lovely summer colors), I invite you to consider howlite. To see what is currently in stock, you can visit the Sacred Becoming Shop.
