Historically used by Aboriginal people in the “Dreamtime”, to help them to experience visions. Gaspeite assists one in recognizing spiritual forces within the everyday world. It enhances awareness of the world beyond what the eyes can see. The idea that even small, seemingly coincidental, occurrences are actually guiding messages from a higher force is referred to as synchronicity. Gaspeite is said to help one better receive and interpret these helpful signs. Gaspeite is believed to help coax out suppressed negative emotions and attachments. It is said to bring out one’s inner child.
