This is why Celestite is a great stone for conflict resolution, clear communication, and inspired creative ideas. A wonderful companion for spiritual seekers or anyone on a path of personal development, Celestite is a popular crystal for meditation, healing, and magical rituals.

What is Celestite?

Celestite (or Celestine as it is also called) is a soft blue and ethereal-looking crystal whose name is derived from the Latin word for celestial. While it usually appears blue, Celestite can also be colorless, white, green, brown, and orange. Celestite is one of the barite group of minerals and is found in sedimentary rocks worldwide. One of the world’s largest known geodes is actually a Celestite geode; located in the state of Ohio and measuring 35 feet at its widest point.

In addition to being a popular metaphysical and healing stone, Celestite has many industrial purposes, including its use within the manufacturing of fireworks. Celestite is often mistaken for Angelite. While they share similarities in appearance, chemical composition, and metaphysical use, they are two separate crystals.

Celestite meaning and properties – when and how Celestite can help:

You’re feeling anxious or depressed.

Celestite has an uplifting vibration which may be helpful for anyone dealing with seasonal blues or the anxiety and depression sometimes brought on by a life transition. It reawakens our own deeper knowing and activates our trust in life; reminding us of the spiritual truths existing within our temporary experience. It is also a great crystal for anyone looking to gain more restful sleep. If you’ve found that your mind has been overactive and your sleep has been erratic, keep a piece of Celestite by your bed and do a mini meditation while holding onto it, right before you fall asleep.

You want to expand your spiritual awareness.

Celestite connects us with our highest vibrational self; cleansing the aura as it aligns our physical body with our spiritual body. It’s a naturally enlivening stone that can encourage us to work towards our potential while also helping us to maintain an overall peaceful and calm feeling. As a result, Celestite is a wonderful crystal to give as a gift and to keep in your home or office. It promotes ease and excellence simultaneously.  

For those who want to expand their intuitive senses and deepen their connection with their own spiritual guidance, be that in the form of angels, spirit guides, or their own higher self, Celestite can be a great crystal to work with.

You’re starting a creative project.

In addition to connecting us with our higher wisdom selves and our spiritual teachers, Celestite can be helpful for any new creative endeavor. It stimulates our ability to receive inspired ideas and will benefit anyone looking for new, innovative creative solutions. Celestite is associated with the element of air and our ability to think clearly and articulate our ideas with ease. Keep a piece of Celestite at your desk or workstation or wear a Celestite bracelet while focusing on your project.

Practical Tips on How to Use Celestite (Rituals, Meditation, & Home)

Ritual To Connect With Your Inner/Higher Wisdom

1. Have a piece of Celestite, a journal, and a writing utensil nearby. Create sacred space by smudging the area around you with a cleansing herb of your choice, like sage or palo santo. Visualize the stale and stuck energy leaving the space around you as you simultaneously visualize 100% pure light and love coming in as sup-port.

2. Affirm, “I release any unnecessary energetic cords of attachment and frustration. I release any lower-vibrational thoughts and any mental energies that no longer serve me and my highest.”

3. Visualize golden light enveloping you and washing your energetic field of any unnecessary energies or lower vibrational thought forms. See the light swirling up and around you like a vortex, taking all that you no longer need with it. 

4. Take your piece of Celestite in your non-dominant hand. Keep it in your hand as you visualize blue light emanating from the crystal, until it encompasses your whole body. Recognize this crystal as a channel for divinely-guided wisdom and insights from your inner voice.

5. Pick up your journal and writing utensil. Think of some area of your life where you’d like some clarity or higher insight. It could be about any area of your life, be it your career, love life, family, or home life. Write down your question.

6. Now, while still holding onto your piece of Celestite, receive the answers to your questions from your highest wisdom, be it your higher self, your angels, spirit guides, or however you think of your connection with the divine. Write down the answers you receive with gratitude. Affirm, “Thank you for this higher wisdom.”

7. When you’re ready, open your eyes. Recognize your Celestite as a symbol of your divine connection. Keep it nearby in the coming days and weeks or whenever you need to ask for spiritual guidance.

Meditation For Inner Peace & Balanced Emotions

1. This is best done with two similarly sized pieces of Celestite, of roughly equal size, shape, and weight.

2. While seated, place a piece of Celestite in each of your palms. Try to rest each hand in a way that they remain level, as if they were two sides of a scale. Your hands could be on your lap or out in front of you.

3. Close your eyes. Through purposeful attention and by focusing on the way each piece feels in your hand, establish an energetic connection between you and the pieces of Celestite. Recognize the Celestite stones as symbols of your calm, peaceful, balanced emotional body.4.  Move the piece of Garnet to your feet. Breathe in and out as you feel your connection to the Earth below you. Take several moments to focus on wherever your body is meeting the ground. If you get distracted, keep bringing your attention back to your breath and the ground below you.

4. Keep your mental focus on the Celestite in your hands as you slowly breathe in and out. Do this for a few minutes; as long as you’d like to meditate in stillness.

5. Move one hand a couple of inches, in whichever direction feels intuitively aligned for you. Breathe in and out, noticing the shift in balance that your movement caused.

6. Affirm, “I allow for the free flow of my emotions. I easily find my way back to bal-ance. I am safe. It is safe to feel. I am always loved. I am at home in my body.” 

7. Move your other hand in the same direction so that you, once again, have both hands on the same level. Breathe in and out, noticing the ease with which you have come back to balance.

8. Hold both hands (and pieces of Celestite) up to your crown chakra and establish a connection between your crown chakra and the stones. Move your hands (and stones) into your lap. Breathe in and out and as you do, visualize blue light (or whatever color light feels intuitively guided for you) emanating from the top of your head and enveloping you all the way down to the bottoms of your feet. As this light surrounds you, it amplifies your state of ease, peace, and emotional balance.

9. Sit in stillness and focus on your breath for however long you’d like.

How to care for your Celestite

When you bring your Celestite home for the first time, allow it to adjust to your space and its new environment. Rinse it briefly with a bit of warm, soapy water and clean off any debris it may have picked up using a soft cloth. You shouldn’t submerge your Celestite in water, however, as this can damage the stone.  

For continued care of your Celestite, you can cleanse and charge it regularly. Some ways to do so include: leaving it in the moonlight or sunlight for a few hours, placing it in the Earth overnight, smudging it with a sacred herb of your choice, placing it on a Selenite plate, or playing a crystal singing bowl in its presence. Whether you are cleansing or charging your stone, the most important thing is the intention you set as you perform the action.

Final thoughts

Celestite is a bright and vibrant crystal with heavenly associations; assisting us with becoming our most expanded and conscious selves. It is a wonderful communication stone that helps us gain insight from the higher realms but also from our own deeper wisdom. It promotes clear, positive thinking and creative and inspired solutions which can be helpful for those of us with the tendency to overthink or ruminate about situations. Celestite can be a go-to mood or energy-boosting crystal. It aligns us with our true spiritual nature and helps us maintain an expanded level of awareness despite any temporary, day-to-day challenges we may experience.
