"Flash of the spirit" This stone is about spiritual breakthroughs, particularly useful during times when the going has been hard and the road has been difficult. It helps us make leaps forward beyond the obstacles with greater ease. Sometimes we feel as if we're stuck and our best efforts haven't enabled us to move ahead - thats when Astrophyllite can help. They help us attain insight that leads to resolution of long-standing or especially difficult challenges or quandaries. The wisdom they communicate is often received in a flash of inspiration or understanding and is akin to being handed the key with which to unlock the chains that have bound us.
It enables us to see how our individual and collective essence is "written in the stars", connecting us to an expanded understanding of just who we are and what rests within us. They also help us see the broader evolutionary process, the big picture of our individual and global transformation.
When used on the throat chakra it projects our soul song into the world around us, shifting our own world in response to this note. In this way it can bring a truer sense of who we are into every aspect of our lives and bring the material more into line with the spiritual. Also works well on couples as if used together it can allow both to see what is at the deepest (or highest) part of the other - virtually see one another's souls. Very good for use with astrology as it links the energy of the stars with this plane and can help people who are trying to communicate and/or understand astrological elements.
Can also be used on the second chakra where it allows us to align with the original blueprint or soul song. So use on 2nd will align with the soul song and use on the throat will communicate that outwards. Alignment with the blueprint is perhaps one of its most important healing tasks - many things happen, particularly traumas which can misalign us with our "divine path". Trauma in particular can create "broken paths" which in turn can create disease and a sense of seperation or aimlessness. Astrophyllite can work on this to re-align our lives and bodies to that pathway - bring it back to the way and intent of the soul.
On the throat where the blueprint is communicated outward and we sing or live our soulsong then this energy can clean and clear personal spaces - getting rid of dischordant energy and bringing it into alignment with ourselves.
Used on the crown chakra it can link us to the stars - to the greater light. It asks us to consider our legacy - what are we leaving behind for those who will come after us. It asks us to consider our every activity and action and consider it within a broader context - not only how it effects others but how it will effect the future.
