The name "Astrophyllite" comes from the Greek "astron" for "star" and "phyllon" for "leaf" due to its starburst-like sprays. Astrophyllite helps to release old patterns and programming without any guilt so that forward progress can be made. It assists and guides one to reaching one’s full potential, allowing for the recognition/realization that there truly are no limitations or obstacles. Astrophyllite's motto is "Believe and you will achieve".
Astrophyllite is a wonderful companion for astral travel, out of body journeys and dream time, as it helps to protect and guide when needed. Astrophyllite increases sensitivity of touch and perception, which makes it an excellent tool for those who are working in the alternative healing fields such as massage or acupressure, as it enhances awareness of what the client needs.
