Welcome to our weekly blog: Understanding the Power of Crystals - where each week we will focus on a specific crystal and explain the benefits and how they can provide healing and promote positivity in your life. This week the Crystal we will be focusing on is: Moonstone
A stone for “new beginnings” Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilises the emotions, providing calmness. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters.
There’s a lot you can understand about this stone by looking at its visual aspects. A tumbled piece of moonstone looks like a big moon in the night sky. Colour and light shifts with the iridescence and there is a fluid and watery movement to the stone. The appearance is also soft and milky, like mother’s milk.
The moon, in feng shui and many other spiritual traditions, represents the divine femininity. Women’s fertility cycles connect with the waxing and waning of the moon.
Moonstone is known for balancing hormonal and reproductive issues as well as emotions.
As the moon cycles connect us to nature, Moonstone also reminds us that our lives also ebb and flow. Moonstone cultivates compassion and empathy. It helps us to tap into our intuition and enhances psychic abilities and clairvoyance.
The creative and intuitive power of feminine energy is activated by Moonstone. It can help us balance and cool down emotions and stress. It can also put us in tune with our feminine and feeling side. Moonstone energy is yin, introspective, receptive, and connected to our subconscious.
The serene and tranquil energy of Moonstone also invites creativity, healing and motherly protection.
