Gemstones in Real Life: Moldavite Dynamite Update

Moldavite Necklace Report

Moldavite Necklace Report

Moldavite has a kick, as you may already know. A big one. From what I can tell, it’s all about letting go and opening up. And with that kind of energy, it’s something you may want to work with in measured doses. At least, if you’re not me.

As much as I lecture the world to be patient, get your two cookies later, not to be all forlorn when you find you haven’t tossed it fast enough…well, I don’t care. I want to be lessened of my psychic hangups now, damnit! I’m perfectly ready to accept discomfort for my own good, if we can just get on with it already.

So I ordered this Moldavite necklace. Right around that last eclipse, when I was already twitchy with the astrological charge. The Moldavite turned it up. And I wore it, all day, every day for a couple of weeks, just taking it off for bathing and sleeping. (I don’t think I could have slept with it on.)  But I was determined I was going to get the best I could from of the period, so I wore it faithfully to enhance my intention.

And yes, it did it’s work. I had shadows shaking loose in every corner of my brain! Left and right. At times, quite uncomfortable, but not unduly painful considering what was being shuffled. And it moved fast! If you’re willing to endure the unsettling transition, it’s a good choice.

Nonetheless, I probably could have done with a little less push. I finally decided to give it a rest–I was getting too wound up. So I grabbed my Charkra necklace again for a while. But I have it back on, in preparation for the next eclipse.

I have noticed this necklace is a slightly lighter green color than my other pieces (though it looks dark in the picture), and seems to have a gentler energy than the darker green. That’s just as well, if it’s going to be hanging around my neck–and  especially if I don’t have the good sense to swap it out with calmer gemstones periodically. I’m working on that “good sense” thing.

Do you limit your work with any particular stones because of their energy?

Gemstones in Real Life: Moldavite Clearing the Decks

I was blessed with a surprise gift when Jupiter was conjunct Uranus–a minivan! It was much needed and appreciated, since I was driving a complete crap-mobile. There was only one problem–the energy. It belonged to my brother. My relationships with family are sketchy on a good day, and I’d only talked to this brother once in the decade prior. So climbing in this vehicle, thick with his energy, dredged up a lot of pain. I’d hop in to go to the store and end up bawling within minutes and it wasn’t shaking off.

“That is SO you,” said my husband upon seeing these.

I decided I needed to inject some “Dixie”in there and clear the energy. Started with a few accessories and added a sparkly necklace to hang from the rear view mirror. It was better, but I wanted more.

Hello, seat covers! Knowing my brother would have had nothing to do with such flashy foolishness, they helped hugely. All of a sudden, I could get in without feeling sad.

I also grabbed a bottle of Purification spray–love this stuff!–used it liberally, and stashed nearby for quick recharges and clearing. Much, much better. Then Jinjan suggested adding gemstones. Duh! Why did I not think of that? Specifically, Moldavite, a rare,  green piece of ancient meteorite.

Now, Moldavite had already hit my radar, since a recent order to the Natural Magick Shop had mistakenly netted me a whole bunch of Moldavite oil! Ten bottles of something you didn’t order captures your attention, after all.

I vaguely remembered maybe having a piece of my own from eons ago. I’d gotten it when I was new at collecting gemstones, as a gift. I felt it’s vibrations like crazy when I touched it and had no idea what else to do with it. So it lived in it’s little bag, pushed behind other stuff, long put away and forgotten until I went seeking it. It showed up again, right when I asked for it. Thanks, Universe!

I hung it on the rear view mirror with some ribbon inside a ring my husband gave me, adding an amethyst necklace to ground and some other personal items to round out the energetic transfusion. The results were quick and exceeded my expectations. I’ve been happily driving, sans emotional ghosts, ever since.

Pretty, don’t you think?

They say Moldavite helps you transform and let go of whatever you no longer need, you know?

What I didn’t expect was that within few days of  hanging that Moldavite, I would be finishing up my work at Elsa’s site to be here at A Fool’s Journey, giving it all I’ve got. As hard as it was to transition (and it was), deep down, I knew it was time, to move forward and see where it led. I don’t know when I would have, though, had circumstances not come together the way they did. I credit Moldavite energy for driving the process into motion.

I loved it so much, I recently ordered myself a Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Moldavite Pendant from Amazon. I’m excited to see what other changes this stone brings. But I’ll warn you now–don’t get it if you’re not ready to be shot into the future.

Do you have any Moldavite? What do you think of it?

Secret Life of Gemstones

I saw somebody mention in a discussion recently how their crystals and gemstones love to disappear and reappear. I can’t tell you how relieved I was to hear somebody else say that!

Mine do so with alarming regularity. And it’s not just me being absentminded! Sometimes, these things show up in places that I’ve looked dozens of times, or disappear right out from under my nose. I can get wrapped up in my own little reality, but I’m not that bad.

I’ve been telling myself they do this when I am over-using a particular stone or would just be better suited for another stone’s energy. When I need it, I’m certain it will appear on my radar. In other words, I simply personify the stone and say it’s the stone’s preference.

Flipped open my copy of Ask Your Guides: Connecting to Your Divine Support System and noticed that section I opened to was talking about little tricks various guides play–like hiding things to get your attention. So it’s not my imagination!

Maybe it’s the guides doing the hiding. Or the crystals themselves are the physical manifestations of guides’ energy. I don’t know! I just know the little suckers hide from me.

Do your gemstones play hide and seek?

Selecting Gemstones by Energy

I’ve noticed several people mention they like “pretty rocks” but have no idea how to go about picking them. Here’s my very simple technique for getting a good gemstone for you without knowing thing one about ’em!

Softening the Sharp Edges with Rose Quartz Love Vibes!

rose-quartz-gemstone-metaphyscial-propertiesRose Quartz is a form of Quartz crystal with a pinkish hue, sometimes very softly colored or sometimes, a deeper pink, and it’s a staple of any gemstone collection. The stone is usually translucent, some even transparent. I have always preferred the softer pink colors, so those are the ones I can speak to from personal experience.

Rose Quartz is known as the stone of love, associated with the Heart Chakra. It has a very soothing and gentle energy. I’m most likely to grab for  Rose Quartz when I’m sad, mad, lonely or feeling unloved somehow.

Going through a very difficult period with a family member once (read: constantly pissed), I used this stone a LOT. I especially liked the rough-cut then, turning it over and over in my hand until the difficult feelings passed. The sharper edges suited my mood while the stone’s energy had a chance to sink in. I  churned that stone so much, I was actually surprised it didn’t wear smooth! I still reach for it when I want to soften a sharp mood.

I also have a lamp on my Tarot desk. I turn it on for readings, and will sometimes lay my hands on it for a minute when I need a quick “love charge” or I’m sending some love energy out into the energy sea for any reason.

Before my daughter moved off, I gave her a little Rose Quartz heart I’d held, focusing on channeling my love and support for her into the stone. I wanted her to have something from me to call on even when I was far away, and to help with missing mom. I knew I was going to be missing her!

Rose Quartz is a good choice for dealing with breakups, melancholy, or missing someone as well as anger. It’s also great for agitation and emotional turmoil of any kind. Basically, any disturbance of the heart (including physical heart issues) is a good candidate for some Rose Quartz energy. It’s healing though love.

How do you like your Rose Quartz?

Using Infinite: The Healers’ Gemstone

Infinite /Infinity Healing GemstoneAt a psychic fair eons ago, before I was actively working with cards or much anything metaphysical, I got a very, very good reading. So I asked the reader about progressing on my own path since she clearly had a hotline here, and she suggested I start getting gemstones.

At the time, it seemed kind of crazy to me. “Rocks? Rocks are going to help me develop spiritually? Really?!?” Dumbfounded but sold by the quality of the reading, I went ahead and picked up some rocks that day and eventually, learned to appreciate the energy stones carry. I’m glad I did!

One of my absolute favorite pieces is this sizable hunk of Infinite (or Infinity) gemstone–a type of green Serpentine and Chrysotile found in South Africa. It comes in different shades. The lighter green is the more gentle variety, the darker green more concentrated energy. I was lucky enough to find a piece that has both. Well worth the $15 it cost me to win it on eBay.

Infinite gemstone draws out pain, both physical and emotional. (And what pain isn’t both?)  Some use a small piece of Infinite as a Worry stone, or sleep with it under their pillow. These stones have a very gentle, soft energy. Some say it helps connect to the angelic realms, drawing out negative energy and mending holes in the aura and very grounding.

I can tell you from personal experience it helps eliminate pain. I’ve used it for nausea, cramps, headaches, backaches, you name it. Whatever hurts, it’s helped. Most effective seems to be simply laying the Infinite stone on body wherever it hurts. You don’t have to have skin contact, but I prefer to whenever practical. It’s fastest that way. Once you’ve placed the stone, divert your attention from any discomfort and let it go. Within a few minutes, when you remember to check, the pain has vanished. It really is that simple.

I’ve seen a few sources suggest this stone needs frequent clearing, but others say it’s one of the few that’s perpetually self-clearing. I’ve never felt the need to energetically clean or charge my Infinite stone in any way and it continues to work just fine, so I’m voting with self-clearing camp. Of course, if you’d prefer to clear yours, it certainly wouldn’t hurt anything. As always, your own intuition is your most reliable guide.

Have you used Infinite or are you interested in trying it?
