A highly spiritual stone connected to the Third Eye, Iolite is a stone of vision that heightens intuition and insight helping us discern between our higher self and our ego. Iolite makes us aware of any harmful, negative thought patterns we have about ourselves enabling our higher self to clear our old ways of thinking allowing us a new beginning. When Iolite contacts the Auric field, it gives off an electrical charge to reenergize the Aura and align the Chakras and subtle bodies. A great stone for codependency, Iolite helps dissipate conflict in our relationships by encouraging us to take responsibility for our actions, words and behaviors. Once we are able to overcome our debilitating behavior, we are free from the trap that keeps us in an endless cycle of suffering. For those that suffer from insomnia or nightmares, placing Iolite under your pillow can help you achieve a peaceful night’s sleep. Iolite commonly demonstrates the optical phenomenon pleochroism, meaning it can appear different colors depending on the angle. These colors can include indigo, violet, yellow and gray.
Moonstone is often referred to as "The Goddess Stone." Directly connected to the moon, it has a very feminine energy that is cyclical in nature just as a women's cycle. It has a very soothing energy that calms our emotions, by releasing energy blockages that prevent us from being able to remain composed and balanced while we are experiencing emotional highs and lows and by encouraging us to accept our emotions as they come without dwelling on them or judging ourselves too harshly.
It inspires us to be the best version of ourselves and to learn from our mistakes, but to also challenge ourselves to be the creative beings we were meant to be without fear of failure. Moonstone is a very intuitive stone, helping us connect with our Third Eye to enhance and trust our intuition. Trusting yourself is challenging for most of us, but Moonstone nurtures our fears and trepidations until we begin to see how powerful we truly are. A stone of “New Beginnings,” Moonstone reminds us that we are never stuck in one place on this journey and are always afforded an opportunity for a fresh start!
The Moon is the light in the darkness that illuminates our path towards enlightenment. She guides us on our journey to reclaim our soul and connect with our intuition that is often buried deep inside. The Moon reminds us to let our emotions flow just like the ebbs and tides of the ocean as new beginnings are always possible. She symbolizes inner harmony as she guides us through the phases of our life encouraging us to always follow our dreams.
