How can I use it?
Always remember there is no right or wrong way to incorporate crystals and gemstones, like Moonstone, into your life. Experiment and see what works for you! Additionally, you can get underway by trying some of our suggestions below.
Carry it with you
Try bringing Moonstone with you when you leave the house. The stone reminds us that slowly but surely everything is in a constant state of flux. If you are going through difficult times, it brings hope and reassurance that better days are coming. Similarily, if things are going well for you, it reminds us to be present and to have gratitude for the moment.
Meditate with it
Experiment with Moonstone in your meditation practice. As it is affiliated with the Third-Eye chakra, the stone can help you with awareness. This can be deeply personal as you look inward and self-examine. Alternatively, it can help you develop empathy for others. In any sense, Moonstone promotes hope and positive change.

In the home
Try leaving Moonstone in the places you spend time in the evenings like the living room or bedroom. The stone helps to calm emotions and stimulates the ‘higher thinking’ parts of the brain. As a result, you’ll feel more receptive, intuitive and insightful. Also, you should know, the effects of Moonstone are said to be amplified when the Moon is full!

I look at crystals and gemstones as a beautiful tool for accountability. Their presence gives you a nudge – a tireless reminder of the life you’re ready to step into. They help you to work on yourself in a deeper way. But ultimately, you are your own healer.
