I’ve been in a major psycho/spiritual funk lately. In between taking care of my 2 babies, running a business and trying to manage keeping the household afloat, it feels like non-stop chaos. With everything going on, I have stopped prioritizing my self care and doing things that center me like yoga and meditation. The result is disharmony. Disharmony in that I just feel disconnected from my relationships, myself and soul purpose. I know I am in disharmony when I start to snap easily at others, I become highly critical of myself and my body starts to feel tense.
Each month I look to feature a gemstone to highlight, and for this month there is no better gemstone than Moonstone. Moonstone is a stone of harmony with a very receptive energy that strengthens intuition and brings balance.
Long considered to have inherent connections to the moon, this stone helps one connect to the Divine Feminine energy. Moonstone also has strong connections with the Water element, which is the element of emotions, cleansing, dreaming, and the emotional aspects of love and femininity.
Moonstone’s most powerful effect is that of calming the emotions. By strengthening intuition, it helps one with awareness to overreacting to emotional triggers. In terms of physical healing, moonstone affects the female reproductive cycle and is linked to the pineal gland, which balances the hormonal system. It is said to be excellent for PMS, conception, pregnancy, childbirth and breast-feeding.
As you can see, Moonstone is a must have for every woman! It is exactly what I need right now and I feel so much better just wearing my favorite moonstone mala. The message I get when wearing moonstone is that harmony will be restored by taking care of myself, staying active in my yoga and spiritual practice, reaching out to others and being receptive to gifts and messages from the universe.
