“A stone of awakening, Sodalite stimulates the Pineal Gland and the Third Eye, and deepens meditation. Sodalite is helpful for those who find themselves to be over-emotional, due to its ability to focus energy on the Third-Eye and Throat Chakras. This will allow one to use more logic and intuition, rather than the emotions from an over-developed Heart Chakra. Sodalite helps to enhance psychic abilities while discouraging any obsession about such abilities.
Sodalite encourages discipline and will in one's personal and public lives, and can be a facilitator of career advancement when used in this manner. Carrying Sodalite during the day can help one to find efficient ways of dealing with daily tasks and problems.

Place Sodalite next to your computer to help clear electromagnetic pollution.”
