Botswana Agate helps us to overcome feelings of repression – especially in terms of artistic expression. It recalls our childlike wonder of the world, that time when we felt (or wanted to feel) that everything was possible and we could do anything we put our minds to. At the same time, Botswana Agate has a soothing energy that is extremely grounding and helps us to see things from their proper perspective. It is a wonderful stone for anyone who has a dream and wants to see it come to fruition. It is also very helpful for anyone who is actively seeking new friends or a new romantic relationship. It encourages us to act conscientiously and lovingly towards ourselves and others, and to be both confident and happy.
Botswana Agate inspires creativity, both artistically and when seeking solutions to vexing problems. It encourages us to think “outside of the box” and helps us to remain emotionally detached so that we can use our logic and intuition more fully. Botswana Agate encourages us to stay alert and attentive to details. This is a stone for patience, helping us remain calm and focused even during stressful times. It is also a wonderful stone for self-analysis since it’s energy is gentle yet also very honest, a combination which can help us to build self-confidence and self-acceptance.
Botswana Agate is also a very good choice for anyone involved in art therapy. It reminds us that there are many ways to understand our emotions and to solve our problems, and to be open to exploring these different paths until we find one that suits us well. Botswana Agate is also a good crystal friend when it’s time to quit smoking. It reminds us that we’re the only one who can give this gift of health (and money) to ourselves and that we can do it! It helps us to find ways to satisfy the craving without giving in to the old habit. It is a lovely talisman for health conditions affecting the lungs, throat, or eyes.
