Howlite is a stone of awareness and stimulates desire for knowledge while strengthening ones memory. It prepares to receive wisdom while assisting in releasing attachments, or cords linking old emotional pain, from the past life to this life leading to peace. It decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety bringing calm and relaxation. Howlite is used in crystal healing for pain, bones, osteoporosis, teeth, calcium levels, leg cramps, anxiety disorders and stress-related illness.
