Stone Medicine: Labradorite


























So. I haven't been the best at keeping up with my features lately. Especially Stone Medicine (such sporadic times, I'm sorry!). But I figure, since Saturday and Sunday start with an 'S' (I am really corny picking out feature days) I could just post Stone Medicine sometime during the weekend and not feel stressed about having it ready at a certain time. So for now on, either on Saturday or Sunday I will post it! Each weekend come back and find out more about crystal healing!

Anyhoo, back to this week's stone. Since the Moon is growing darker and darker, I want to share with you Labradorite. It is such a beautiful dark and iridescent stone. It's magickal energy is ruled by the darker moon- Waning through the New Moon phases. It aids in banishing negative habits and helps you to dig deep into your soul for shadow work, along with giving you psychic protection.

Due to its ever-changing colors, Labradorite is associated with all the chakras. Place it on your third-eye during meditation to open your intuition and psychic abilities. You can even sleep with it under your pillow to have prophetic dreams.

The Waning Moon is also a good time to cleanse this stone, as this phase aligns its energy. Place it under the Moon at this time, even if you can't see the Moon, Her energy is there.

If you really need to banish something out of your life, bring a piece of the stone out with you under the Waning Moon. Hold the stone and as you hold it meditate on what you wish to banish. Let the stone absorb this negative energy. Do you feel this energy at a certain chakra point? Place the stone over this area. When you feel this energy is out of your body/mind/spirit and into the stone, bury it. The energy will absorb back into Mama Earth. Leave it buried there until you feel this situation habit/person, or whatever you wished to banish from your life, is gone. Try to remember where you buried it so you can use it again! After a good cleansing that is!

I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Love and Blessings,

Grounding



After releasing a big project, I have heard you can go through an unsettling phase after. I sure am. The phase has a theme of ungrounded, scattered energy. Everything is scattered: my thoughts, emotions, my clothes, and my energy is a big blah. I have been floating in the ether for so long, my soul is not use to Earth at the moment. And to be completely honest, Earth has always felt like foreign ground to me; I believe we all have themes and lessons we must learn in this lifetime, and one of mine is Earth Medicine. My lower chakras, pertaining to my physical body (mostle root and sacral) have always been imbalanced, so it is time to bring back some nourishment, me thinks. It has been far too long Marissa.

Samhain was not the best for me this year, a lot of issues surfaced, and it made me realize how much I need a clearing out in all areas of my life. And it needs to start with me, in my body, in my mind, in my heart and soul. The sacred sage bundle (above) and a beautiful set of stones (above is Garnet) is exactly what my soul needed this morning. I ordered this set from Sage Goddess and it was one of the first things I woke up to. The sage bundle has rosemary and rose petals and smells absolutely divine. I have been carrying it around with me all day just smelling and savoring it. I even smudged the inside of my car and it got way too smoky in there, haha, lesson learned! It is healing to say the least. And Garnet is a stone of the root chakra so I have been keeping myself grounded.

A nice start off to November, I think. Keep yourselves grounded loves and remember releasing is  apart of life (more of a reminder to me). Love to you all this November <3

Love and Blessings,

Trinkets from AZ

Hello loves, I just wanted to share some goodies I bought from AZ, I kind of splurged (bad habit of mine), but I thought it was well worth it!


1. I added to my budding dream catcher collection. The two on the ends are the new additions. The smallest one was made by a Native American of the Navajo tribe and has a certificate of authenticity.

2. Jimmy and I decided to start a tradition by buying something handmade a local on each of our travels. We chose two coasters.

3. I bought a Himalayan Salt Lamp in Sedona. I absolutely love the glow. Theo (my kitten) also doesn't sneeze anymore! Yes, the poor little guy has allergies. But Himalayan Salt lets out negative ions into air, cleansing and purifying it!

4. I bought the cute place mat because the colors go with my blog! And some AZ grown sage...mmm cannot wait to use it!

5. I bought some new stones to work with! I will share more about them soon!

6. And I bought some pretty pendants to make some items with! Not sure what I will come up with, so this will be fun!

Arizona inspired me to be more artistic again...somehow it got lost in my daily life, but I am re-awakening.

Have a lovely Wednesday, my beautiful readers! Thank you for putting up with all of my pictures of Arizona! Can you not tell I am obsessed?

Love and Blessings,

Moon Days: Lunar Stones

Moon Day has arrived again, and I wanted to share with you some stones I work with on a regular basis. These stones are also associated with the Moon (of course I would be drawn to these stones) B-) so this will be a very fitting post for today!



I love moonstone. It is called moonstone because of its silvery, iridescent color and texture much like the Moon. It it receptive and ruled by water. It gives off a gentle and soothing energy and is known to help balance hormones and womens' cycles. If my monthly cramps are particularly acute I will place my moonstone over my Sacral chakra (a couple of inches just below your navel). I also place it under my pillow if I am having trouble sleeping. It can also help heal and balance any stomach or pancreas issues. A good time to use moonstone is the waxing and full moon.


Amethyst is also a great stone to work with. It is such an essential healing stone many, many, people use on a regular basis. It balances emotions and helps heal and balance all the chakras. It is a very protective stone and if you wear it or keep it with you on a regular basis, it will protect you from negative debris we pick up from others and daily stresses of life. If I need a pick-me-up I will rub it in my left (receiving) hand for a little extra focused energy. It is also a great complement to moonstone. The full moon is the best time to utilize all of Amethyst's power.


Rose quartz is one of my favorites to work with. It is known as the "love" stone and helps promote more love in your life. You can obviously use it to attract love from others, but because of its gentle nature it is great to use for self-love which I think is so so so so important. Probably one of the most important loves to cultivate! It helps heal and balance the heart chakra and gently opens this area up. I place my rose quartz on my heart while meditating sometimes if I need a little self-love boost. Rose quartz is best used during the waxing moon when trying to build more self-love for yourself.


I love love love these meditation beads. My lovely friend Kim from Red Moon Mama and also the jewelry designer of Scarlet Moon Designs made these lovely beads for me as a gift for Yule. I asked her to make me meditation beads associated with the moon and moon Goddesses.  And I could not have asked for anything more perfect. She named this piece Moon Mother Prayer Beads. She used moonstone, crystal quartz, and fresh water pearls. When she sent them over my way, she also wrote me to me about each stone she used so I have to share her beautiful words:

"Fresh water pearls are moon and water ruled. Due to these elements, pearls are balancing to emotions, especially to water signs. Pearls have a centering and calming action, and help attune one to the ebb and flow of life. Pearls also help one connect with the Goddess, the ultimate feminine energy. Pearls are very nurturing and can lessen stress, headaches, and exhaustion. Pearls balance and heal all chakras and helps in the search for higher wisdom and truth."

"Quartz crystal is also linked to the moon and is a stone of Light, bringing heightened spiritual awareness to whoever wears, carries, or meditates with it. Quartz crystal amplifies energy, stores power, enhances psychic ability, and absorbs negative energy. It has shown to enhance and strengthen the aura, and holding one in your hand, doubles your biomagnetic field. It is often used to cleanse, open, activate, and align all the chakras."

For more Goddessy, soulful prayer beads and jewelry visit Kim's shop Scarlet Moon Designs
I use my Mother Moon Prayer Beads while meditating and working with mantras. I always hold them in my left hand (receptive hand, usually whatever had you do not write with) and while passing each bead with my finger, I say a mantra. It is so soothing and so good for my soul.

So these are my usual stones I work with. What stones are your favorites and how do you use them? 

Also, my sweet readers, how do you like Moon Days so far? Do you have a questions or anything in particular you would like to know about Luna? I would love to know what you think!

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter
