Connect to Your Feminine Energy

Moonstone is well known for its ability to connect us to our inner selves and also to help us receive the beautiful energy that the Universe sends us.

Many practices use Moonstone in meditation to access deeper layers of oneself, and also to connect and harmonize the feminine energy within.

Moonstone is a Feldspar mineral, which gives Moonstone the whitish, silvery reflection that usually captures the eyes of crystal healers. Moonstone’s name derives from that very shine that reminded people of how the Moon changes its shine though the various phases – much like Moonstone shimmers differently from every angle.

Moonstone is a deeply nourishing stone, and it’s especially helpful for crystal healing rituals through the phases of the moon, especially during the night while the moon is high in the sky and shines. It was often thought of as a protective stone for travelers, since many people were forced to travel during the night or often sleep in the wilderness during their travels.
