Sodalite is an aura purifier and cleanser. It is the beginning step to clearing out self-created illusions that are not in harmony with the inner self. These are generally called negative thought patterns but also include patterns that are not necessarily negative yet aren't in alignment with one's own truth.
Sodalite can have profound effects on the wearer (or user) through the clarity it creates. The cleansing of the aura lightens one's experience and as the accumulated energies are absorbed it is much easier to see what is actually there. This can only bring one closer to the true essence which naturally restores harmony and balance to the whole being.
Through Sodalite's absorbing power one can gain insight into just how much rubbish is created by one's self. Many haven't fully grasped the fact that thoughts are things and the energy they carry has to go somewhere. The most common accumulation spot is the aura and after a trying/stressful day the aura can look like a rubbish bin between the disharmonious thoughts one generated and those picked up. The being does clear these out on its own generally through the sleep time (which is one of the reasons why many experience exhaustion at the end of the day) but as daily life has changed so has the amount and power of the rubbish.
Often there's not enough sleep time to clear the aura. This is another reason why vacations have such a profound effect on people. Before the focus of a vacation was to travel, see a different place and experience new sights and sounds. Now the general motivation is to "get away", relax, etc. because this will allow time for the being to naturally begin cleaning the aura.
Sodalite can change this whole cycle. It directly assists in purifying the aura which not only clarifies the mind but increases one's energy. One function at a higher vibratory rate the cleaner the aura is which attracts even more high frequency expanding the experience.
Sodalite does have some specific physical effects besides the purification of the aura. It helps to regulate the calcium levels within the body which strengthens bones and helps to fortify the ligaments and tendons. Many experiences a better sleep experience since the "rubbish" energy is absorbed and can no longer give a path for the mind to follow. The clarity of mind Sodalite brings also increases one's connection to their intuitive side restoring the natural intuition. This can lead to an expansion and activation of the third eye.
