ATTRIBUTES Banded Agates stimulate the crown chakra, bringing celestial and earth energy into the subtle bodies' and harmonizing them with the physical body. A powerful holistic healer, Banded Agates remove dualities and conflict, maintaining well-being. This crystal is extremely effective for multi-dimensional healing and soul-work, the bands across its surface taking you travelling into another reality, different streams of consciousness or other lives.
A useful environmental healer when gridded' around a house, Banded Agate prevents out-of-body visitations from another soul and turns back unwelcome spirits. Traditionally, Banded Agate has been used to overcome physical, emotional and mental poisoning or toxicity and is a useful receptacle for negative energy.
Placed on the third eye, Banded Agate quickly cuts mental cords to a guru, a partner from a past life or a parent who manipulates an earlier childhood connection to retain control in the present, replenishing the energy lost in such situations. It is particularly useful where someone is being 'prayed for', whether by a priest or cult-leader, to bring that person 'back to the fold' - or under control once again - since this stone returns the compulsive energy back to its source and leaves the person free to live life as he or she wishes.
Psychologically, Banded Agate teaches that sexuality is a natural function and that sensuality is the appreciation by the senses of the fullness of life. It releases emotional repression and encourages artistic expression. Useful for people who are easily hurt, this stone teaches users to look for solutions rather than dwell on problems and shuts off obsessive thoughts and destructive mental patterns. Giving the broader picture, it encourages you to explore unknown territory and creativity while at the same time paying appropriate attention to detail.
Emotionally, this stone can be programmed to protect you and your family and to encourage supportive love, which is objective and non-smothering.
Botswana Agate also assists anyone working with fire or smoke, and aids smokers who want to quit. It is said to repel spiders.
