An "eye" formation in Botswana Agate is both protective and considered especially lucky. Consider holding one while picking lottery numbers or choosing a horse for a race.
Botswana Agate is an ideal crystal for very sensitive children or teenagers who are easily hurt by teasing or pressure, and can assist them in finding more like-minded friends. It also supports adults who join a dating agency or online services to find partners who are spiritually in tune and shares their dreams.
Botswana Agate is excellent for those serious about giving up smoking. To increase success drink an elixir first thing each morning, made by soaking the crystal in water for a few hours. Botswana Agate is also a stone of protection for all who work with fire, and protects the home from fires.
Botswana Agate is a useful receptacle for negative energy and toxicity, excellent for gridding around a house. It prevents out-of-body visitations from another soul and turns back unwelcome spirits.
Botswana Agate is said to repel spiders.
Botswana Agate encourages treating the underlying causes of illness rather than the symptoms. It may be used to treat depression and stress, and relieve sexual dysfunctions in both sexes.
Botswana Agate is beneficial in ridding the body of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin. It helps stimulate the immune and nervous systems, and aids in brain oxygen assimilation for a healthy circulatory system.
Botswana Agate is a comfort stone, beneficial in overcoming depression, and strengthening during a grieving process. It helps alleviate obsessive thoughts and destructive mental patterns, and assists in overcoming fears, such as agoraphobia and panic attacks in crowded places. It encourages one to view the bigger picture in life, and look toward practical solutions rather than dwelling on the reasons for a situation or assigning blame.
A crystal of possibility and hope, Botswana Agate encourages artistic expression and exploration of the unknown, while still maintaining logic and attention to detail that brings projects and ventures into reality. It also releases emotional repression and blocks to fertility, by lending the knowledge that sexuality is a natural function and sensuality is the body's appreciation of the fullness of life.
Botswana Agate, with its energies of pale red, gray and brown, stimulates the Base Chakra. The Base, or Root Chakra, is located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When its spiritual energies are out of balance, you will feel flighty, disconnected from reality, and distant. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body regains its strength and stamina, and the spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one's own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.
Botswana Agate exudes soft pink color energy, the rays of determination, commitment, and caring. Its soothing color calms feelings of anger or resentment, and can aid efforts to meditate and reflect. Pink is the color of new love, new romance and new relationships. It increases developing sensuality, and can help overcome heartache, aiding in the improvement of our caring and loving abilities.
Silver layers in Botswana Agate embody the silver ray of reflection and the path to inner consciousness. Much like pure white, lighter gray is the color of the moon, the feminine, the cool stillness of night, magic and ambiguity. It is lonely, altruistic, and aloof. As Seekers, gray objects find patterns and the inner meanings of events. Use light gray or silver talismans for quiet meditation, finding purpose in life, and for calm reflection on life’s meanings.
The areas of brown and apricot in Botswana Agate reflect the rich, brown rays of the natural earth. It is the color influence of home, hearth, and nature, of comfort and connection. It lets you relax, reconnect, and regain your composure. It is a grounding stone. Brown crystals promote security and stability.
Botswana Agate is extremely effective for multi-dimensional healing and soul-work. The bands across its surface allow for traveling into another reality, different streams of consciousness or accessing other lives.
Botswana Agate is used for grounding and centering in the beginning of meditation rituals. It allows for harmony with nature and in easing into a transition state. Use a Botswana Agate for the first few minutes of any meditation, then switch to a crystal attuned to the intent of the session.
Botswana Agates can be used in devotions to Clota, the Goddess of the River Cldye; Callisto, the Greek Moon Goddess; Chirakan-Ixmucane, the Mayan Creator Goddess; Dione, Phoenician Earth Goddess; Itzpapaloti, the Aztec Butterfly Goddess; and Jana, the Roman Goddess of Secret and Hidden Things.
