Howlite has an extremely calming energy and can be used to relieve anxiety, tension and intense emotions. It is said to be able to calm the mind reducing fretful thoughts and helping you to relax in preparation for sleep or meditation. If you suffer from insomnia, caused by racing thoughts at bedtime, a piece of Howlite under your pillow may help.
Howlite is said to help calm unreasonable anger, either your own or that directed at you. Carrying a piece around with you, in your pocket, can act as a shield against rage and can encourage reasoned and calm communication.
Howlite is thought to help you become aware of your goals and ambitions and to aid you in achieving them. It is also said to encourage patience, to reduce a tendency to over criticize and to promote selflessness.
