Moonstone ~ Mystery, Intuition

“This card is asking you to take time to observe the mysteries around and within you , such as your dreams, intentions, and relationship to the world. Work on honing your psychic skills. Deepen your intuitive understanding of the sacred through travel, study, connecting with mystical sites, spiritual workshops, observing nature, and discovering the God/Goddess within. Moonstone is an enhancer of clairvoyance. This gem represents the high priestess, keeper of feminine mysteries and intuition. 

As you might expect, moonstone resonates with the moon. It is asking you to connect with your emotions. Open up to the deeper meanings and inner workings of life. Take time to delve into your intuitive state. This card also asks you to become attuned to the cycles of the moon. Notice it’s phases. Chart how they affect your body. Moonstone stimulates the functioning of the pineal gland, balancing the hormonal cycles with nature’s rhythms.

Additional meanings of this card:

Archangels Haniel, Jeremiel, Raguel, and Raziel are associated with this symbol. Work with moonstone for  revelation of your past lives during dream time. Remember to extend compassion to yourself and others, especially at this time. Unblock and enhance communication with your beloved. You are receiving help with the changes in your life on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Connect with your clairvoyant (“clear seeing”) and clairsentient (“clear feeling”) abilities.”*

I have always loved moonstones, they have such a pure, open and soothing vibration. Holding one in your hand during a meditation, especially during a full moon will help you  reconnect with your true essence.

Here is some great information on moonstones by Crystal Cures

Moonstone Gemstone meaning:
passionate love that will fly you to the moon

It is said if you give your lover a moonstone necklace when the moon is full you will always have passion with each other. Moonstone is a highly valued gemstone for these reasons:

  • Brings good fortune
  • Assists in foretelling the future
  • Enhances intuition
  • Promotes inspiration
  • Brings success in love as well as business matters
  • Offers protection on land and at sea

The moonstone is associated with the moon and was the stone of the goddess Diana. The most powerful time to use the moonstone is in a full moon.

It has been worn as an amulet to bring good emotions to the wearer, while protecting those of a sensitive nature. It can reunite lovers who have quarreled. Moonstone is also considered a good luck stone.

Moonstone is a very personal stone. It is a reflection of the person who owns it. It does not add or detract, only shows how it is. This is why the moonstone is said to perceive that which “is”. Moonstone is an excellent stone to use in meditation to understand oneself. Placing it in the moonlight of a moon reaching its fullness, not a full or waning moon, can revitalize it. This is a particularly good gemstone for women. It is a good stone for young women or teenagers.

Healing properties of Moonstone

Moonstone is used by healers to stimulate the functioning of the pineal gland and balance internal hormone cycles with nature’s rhythms. Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. Though often considered to be a woman’s stone, it can be beneficial to men in opening the emotional self.

Sources of moonstone

There are two moonstones. Adularia moonstone is an almost transparent pale gray or silvery white or blue shimmer. It is mainly found in Sri Lanka, Burma, India and Madagascar. Albite moonstone is in the feldspar group. It is semitransparent with a pale, shimmering reflection. It may be a little dull. It comes mainly from Canada.

I have to go make a necklace!! ;0)

Daily Angel Card ~ Angel Dreams ~ Green

Green: Compassion, Love, Cultivation

“When this card appears to you, it is time to ask yourself what needs healing in your life. Keep your heart open, and be compassionate toward yourself and others. Allow love to weave a beautiful tapestry within your heart, expanding your senses. Then you will start to see it all around you in every person and life form. You will begin to respond and communicate lovingly. You will feel lighter, happier, and free of burdens. Green asks you to open to self love now and cultivate a relationship with yourself. This colour is associated with the heart chakra, which in turn represents healing, growth, love and nurturing. 

Green also represents communicating from the heart. Trust yourself and others. Keep faith that your heart will not lead you astray. Love is a compass. If you are unbalanced in your heart chakra, compassion is what you need to be employing, not empathy or sympathy, as these drain energy. If you offer others help out of obligation, shame, guilt, or fear, you will burn out. You need to allow yourself to receive. Foster a safe and supportive environment by releasing judgement. See the world with the eyes of your heart. When you do, you will feel vitality returning to you. 

Additional meanings of this card:

Archangels Raphael, Chamuel, Metatron, Zadkiel and Jophiel are associated with this symbol. You need to nurture and cultivate a relationship or spiritual practice. A condition or situation is being healed. Open your heart as much as you can. Make love with life. Abandon personal control and defensiveness by assuming the role of a beloved partner who takes action and responds to life with compassion.”*

Wow, what an amazing and inspiring message for us today to start off our week. Turing inside to appreciate all that you have to offer the world, appreciating your talents and creativity, releasing judgement and being gentle with yourself. We are often our own worst critics.

Use encouragement, affirmations and journalling to help you along in this journey. Documenting our thoughts and feelings can help us to see our progress as we move through opening our hearts to new clarity and self awareness. I really love to use crystals to enhance theis process, some of my current favourites being amethyst, clear and smoky quartz, nuumite and pedalite.

Crystals can help you achieve new levels of consciousness while meditating, if you have never tried a crystal meditation, here is one to help you get started. It can help you to receive messages from your higher self, using the crystal as your messenger:

If you haven’t experimented with crystals yet, start with a clear quartz point, they are easy to find, affordable and have a beautiful high vibration. You can choose the stone that feels right to you, cleanse it using a pinch of sea salt in water (be aware however that not all crystals like salt, or water for that matter, so if you choose a different type of crystal, please google how to cleanse it so you are not disappointed), moonlight, sunlight (no sunlight for amethyst, rose quartz, citrine or smoky quartz). Once your crystal is cleansed of all other energy, hold it in your hand and concentrate your own energy on the stone and you are ready for your meditation.

Namaste
