Metaphysical Healing Properties Of Moonstone

by Rob Weesner 2 months ago in spirituality



The Moonstone crystal stone meaning is linked with the energy of the moon. This stone channels the brilliant white illumination of moonbeams shining light on your pathway to balance and harmony. Because it embodies the energy of light, connecting with a Moonstone crystal also works to raise your vibration and uplift your spirit. Together, these forces guide you out of the darkness and into the light.

Named for its moon-like sheen, Moonstone is a Feldspar mineral exhibiting a soft, watery opaqueness and a silvery-white reflection called chatoyancy that moves as a line across the surface as light varies. Moonstone occurs in delicate shades of peach, blue, gray, white and a prismatic variety known as Rainbow Moonstone.

Moonstone helps all be more comfortable with our gentler feminine/yin receiving side. Especially for water signs. Helps one be more conscious of the fact that all things are part of a cycle of constant change. It is a recommended gemstone for farmers and gardeners, artists, dancers and young men. Placed under the pillow it will allow for a more peaceful sleep, and is often used as a cure for insomnia, and used along with the amethyst. Moonstone Honors the Goddess in all women. It aids in gardening, psychic awareness and meditation. It soothes stress, anxiety, women's hormones it enhances intuitive sensitivity via feelings and less overwhelmed by personal feelings. Greater flexibility and flow with life.

Moonstone aids the digestive system, assimilates nutrients, eliminates toxins and fluid retention, and alleviates degenerative conditions of skin, hair, eyes, and fleshy organs such as the liver and pancreas. It stimulates the pineal gland and balances hormonal cycles, being excellent for PMS, conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding. Moonstone is also beneficial to men in opening the emotional self. Moonstone became known as the “Traveler’s Stone” due to travelers’ belief that Moonstone would protect them and help light their path. However, Moonstone isn’t just good luck for travelers – it is believed to be a stone of good luck for all. Its brilliant glow even led to legends that sucking Moonstone could reveal one’s destiny.

In addition to the general properties of all Moonstones outlined in this article, the following crystals have additional focuses.

Moonstone taps into our emotions as well as the Water element (since the Moon rules tides, that spiritual vibration remains in this healing crystal). Yellow Moonstone acts on a mental level and Rainbow Moonstone brings hope, the ability to work with Spirits and all of the wonders that await us in Universal awareness. It is said that the Moonstone spirit is most potent during the full moon. Hindu legend even goes so far as to say that this mystical stone came from moonbeams themselves. Nonetheless much depends on how you plan on using Moonstone metaphysically. Sometimes the subtleness of other lunar stages suite very delicate situations that require “kit gloves” Emotional recovery from abuse is one example that might benefit from working with this healing crystal during a waning phase to amp down those unhealthy feelings.

Moonstone bestows a depth of feeling, a gentleness within the self that brings happiness to the environment in which it resides. Associated with the feminine, it enhances the intuitive side of the mind. To women, Moonstone reveals their feminine power and abilities of clairvoyance, and gives rise to the kundalini energy. Moonstone helps men become more in-tune with the feminine aspects of their nature, and stimulates the right side of the brain, encouraging nonlinear thinking and emotional balance.

Holding a Moonstone in your hand feels magical- like you actually have the ability to physically grasp something as beautiful and mysterious as the moon itself. The positive energy it emits is a testament to its powerful healing properties. The moon is believed to hold many healing properties, which is why it is used to cleanse crystals. One way of cleansing crystals of negative energy is to leave them out overnight where the rays of the moon can reach them. Moonstone, much like its namesake, also has the ability to clear people’s minds of negative emotions.

Moonstone ties to the celestial realms it is not without some down-to-earth qualities. As Moonstone brings emotions into check, you in turn find ways to create the sacred trinity of Mind-Body-Spirit work effectively together. Moonstone’s Spirit is full of gratitude, respect and sensitivity. Unlike some other forceful healing crystals, Moonstone won’t hit you over the head to get your attention. Rather it encourages self-exploration, introspection and eventual recognition.

Moonstone is a such a soothing stone to look at and touch. Its pearly sheen is a sight to behold and its blue schiller is as mesmerizing as the moon itself when it looms large above us during a full moon phase. As a healing crystal, Moonstone is primarily used as a protective stone especially while traveling whether by road, air, or water. Although it has a special affinity for water, which is why it is mostly used for protection while traveling in water due to its association with the moon and the tides.

Universally in alignment with the highest of energies. Moonstone has the ability to heal emotional pain from our past lives. Sometimes this type of regressional healing is needed to shift our spirit into balance with the current life we are living. Moonstone crystal balances the central nervous system alleviating fear associated with change. Allowing one to step into the future. By letting go of the past. A calm body is a calm mind. And the reverse is also true.

Moonstone is also the stone of love and eroticism, stimulating the kundalini energy and carnal desires. It is the ultimate fertility crystal. A Moonstone necklace worn during lovemaking at full moon harmonizes the body into the natural lunar cycle. Or, for fidelity or fertility, make a grid of thirteen Moonstone crystals with a circle of the twelve months around a bedroom, and one centered under the bed. Moonstone helps in attuning to the normal rhythms of the biological forces of one’s body and to utilize natural energy cycles. It powerfully affects the female reproductive system, enhancing fertility and promoting ease in pregnancy and childbirth, alleviates menstrual problems and change-of-life, balances the hormonal system and eliminates fluid retention.

Moonstone is the stone most associated with female fertility, and the associated menses, premenstrual syndrome and menopause. The Divine Feminine works through this stone to help assist women in all the joys of womanhood - maid, mother and wise woman. This stone helps you embrace the constant ebb and flow of female hormones.
