I can admit it. I am a crystal junkie. I have crystals in every room in my house, floating around in my purse, my car, my office, and my bra. I bathe with them, sleep with them, and meditate with them. I know that I’m not alone in my sickness. Collecting and using crystals is so powerful and interesting that it quickly becomes an addiction. I know that you are out there, you fellow junkies. I recognize you by the crystal necklaces, and multiple strands of crystals wrapped around your wrists. I see your fingers dripping with gorgeous rings, and I know that you want more, more, more!
Lately I have been very drawn to Labradorite. It is such a mystical stone. The Inuits believed that Labradorite was frozen bits of the Aurora Borealis that fell to the earth in the form of stones. They felt that the flash in the stone was a bit of captured Northern Lights. Now I don’t know about you, but I feel incredibly powerful with a bit of magical lights flashing from my hands. This lore makes me want to have a Labradorite ring on every finger, flashing my lights all over the place!
Labradorite has some great metaphysical properties. It is a stone that connects us to our deepest and most mysterious sides of our spirt. Meditate with a piece in your hand when you want to connect to the many facets of you. It is powerful when used to connect people. The next time you have a group gathering or meeting, try sitting a bowl of Labradorite chunks out on the table to ensure cooperation and success. This flashy beauty is excellent to use when trying to break a bad habit or addiction. (Except for crystal addiction, but who wants to stop that any way?) Try adding a clean tumbled stone to your water bottle to create a Labradorite elixir. Drink it when you feel like falling back into an old pattern that no longer serves you. As a dream stone, place Labradorite under your pillow when you hoping to connect to other spirits in your dreams. When used in conjunction with Kyanite, you can experience some fabulous dreamtime meet ups.
As you can see, you simply must have a few great pieces of Labradorite in your own collection. You can find it raw or tumbled, in beads, cabs, carvings, and jewelry. This is a crystal that I give away frequently, so you may consider picking up a few extra for friends. Find the right pieces for you, and shine on!
