In observance of the first full moon of 2012, and also of the purification rituals that went on around here leading up to it, I took all of my crystals out for a bath in the moonlight.
My heart sunk a little when I realized that my “travel” labradorite had gone missing. It was my favorite of my “companion” crystals- my traveling buddies that live in my amulet bag (get yours now on Etsy– wink wink). In its honor, I bring you a profile of my very favorite stone… Labradorite:
From Judy Hall’s The Crystal Bible:
“Labradorite is a highly mystical and protective stone, a bringer of the light. It raises consciousness and connects with universal energies. Labradorite deflects unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage. It forms a barrier to negative energies shed during therapy. It can take you into another world or into another life.”
Other attributes she notes are:
-“It raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies intot he physical body.”
-“It strengthens faith in the self and trust in the Universe.”
-“[It] calms an overactive mind and energizes the imagination, bringing up new ideas.”
-“[It] is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance.”
Labradorite, I love you.
