Bismuth can be used to help one to transit from the physical plane to the astral state and/or to the inner spiritual realms. It relieves conditions of emotional and spiritual isolation, allowing one to feel the connected-ness with All That Is.
This mineral has been used as a stone of transformation–it transforms the energy of the crown chakra to energy the base chakra (in contrast with most stones) and actualizes the power of wisdom. It stimulates cohesiveness in groups and relationships, allowing for independence in progression toward a common goal. It also helps one to enjoy the journey.
