Howlite is a calming stone, known to promote patience, reduce anxiety, and absorb negativity. Being drawn to Howlite can mean that worthiness may be playing a significant role in your life. Have you noticed a relationship or job opportunity coming closer but not necessarily landing in your life? There may be some feelings of unworthiness lingering in your subconscious. Are you seriously stressed with the length of your to-do list? Many of us struggle with trying to do too much, in pursuit of some unattainable perfection, because subconsciously we believe that we are not enough as we are. We believe that by achieving these items, we will finally prove our worthiness. Do you attempt to numb feelings with TV, social media, or a bit too much food or wine at times? Worthiness may be at the root of those things as well, because when we feel we are not ok as we are, we seek to avoid those uncomfortable feelings by shutting off our minds for a while. And though it does feel better in the moment, these behaviors do nothing to solve the underlying issue at play: feeling like we are not good enough, just as we are.
The truth is you are meant to be here, on this earth, at this time, exactly as you are. No other person brings the unique gifts that you bring to the world, and you are here for a reason. If you sense that worthiness is something that you struggle with, I invite you to take out a piece of paper, and fill at least one page with admirable attributes about yourself. Kind, caring, loving, compassionate, creative, are all examples. Just start writing, and note everything that comes. Perhaps it is time to write an ‘I AM’ statement/affirmation and place it on your mirror, or someplace where you will see it regularly. “I AM Loving, and I AM Loved,” is one example. This can be one way to change the belief that you have to be anything other than exactly who you are to be worthy of all that you desire. Above all, please remember, that you are made as intended.
Because you are drawn to howlite, you possess its gifts. Wear howlite to amplify your sense of worthiness, who you are, and how you show up in the world.
