Dolphin's Dream


When I see, hold, or meditate with Larimar, images of dolphins often come to my mind. In part, this may be because this crystal is found only in the Caribbean area. It's more likely, though, that I see dolphins because they and Larimar have a special relationship to communication.

Traditionally, one of the purposes of the fifth or throat chakra is to blend the fourth (heart) chakra emotions with the mental processes of the sixth (third-eye) chakra through communication.

Each of the crystals associated with this energy center -- turquoise, chrysocolla, blue lace agate, aquamarine, amazonite„focuses on a particular aspect of the ability to communicate what we feel. Larimar, in my experience, helps one to communicate from the soul.

This sky/sea blue stone is streaked with white, suggesting clouds (or foam). Water and air are the most changeable of physical elements, and the energy of Larimar is a flowing kind which invites us to change and grow. As important as our inner, private growth is, there comes a time (unless we've chosen solitary lives of contemplation and silence) when we want to communicate who we are to others.

Larimar is of volcanic origin, and when placed at the solar plexus, its cool and calming color helps to teach us how to transmute anger into a more peaceful expression of feelings.

One special gift of Larimar is to deepen communication with a spirit of tranquility. Thus, when placed on the forehead it helps to promote the flowing expression of creative ideas. Because it has grounding qualities it can also help in the translation of these ideas into physical reality.

It is grounding in another way, telling us that life, like the skies and seas, may often appear changing and impermanent, beneath this chaos lies the peace of the eternal soul.
