Happy Mineral MoonDay!!!
Oh my goodness sakes... the 1st time I saw you .... I just couldn't resist!!
That amazing lovely FLASH... that catches your eye!! When it's angle is just right wow oh wow! Beautiful!
I was attracted to Labradorite immediately! I honestly can't resist a good flash!! Just like the lovely Northern Lights, you just can't look away when you see it!
Out of all my Crystals... I would say I have quite a bit of Labradorite in my collection. From my newest friend to the family the tower you see in the picture above...to heart shaped, skull shaped, regular tumbled pieces... I just love it!
I don't know about you, but I have happened to notice that for some reason Labradorite has been popping up all over the place!!
On my recent trip to Arizona, they were saying it's the "thing" this year!! It's funny how a particular Crystal will get popular suddenly!
Well...Labradorite is in the spotlight right now, and there is a good reason for it!! I feel the reason why this happens is deeper than just because someone decided to push for sales of it! I believe it happens to get popular during the particular year/time that it's needed most! So clearly 2019 is the Labradorite year!
What can I say... I'm a Sucker for that FLASH!!!
That lovely Flash you see in Labradorite is known as Labradorescence! This is what gets ya sucked in! It has the amazing ability to play with it's beautiful iridescent colors!
These colors are caused by internal fractures in the minerals that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different colors!
Usually you will see them polished, not typically found in the raw form. When they are polished it brings out all their true beauty and colors!
Labradorite is part of the Plagioclase Feldspar group.
Yes, Labradorite comes in a variety of colors. It's typical to see them in grey, white, light blue, light green, pale orange-red, and black.
Again, you will know it's Labradorite by that lovely Flash!! Thus with it's multi-color display...you will notice the flash being colors such as yellow, blue, purple, and red.
Labradorite doesn't usually form in a Crystal like formation, they are more tabular...and often are found as elongated fragments, chunky masses, or even round.
Where is Labradorite Found???
Named after the Labrador in Canada where it was found on the Isle of Paul...near by Nain in 1770!!
It has also been found in other locations like Russia and some specimens even been found in Finland, Madagascar, and Australia.
Benefits of Labradorite...
I love working with Labradorite to increase my intuition and psychic abilities!! It's also wonderful in helping seal and protect your aura! It has the ability to detect any leaks in your aura (energetic body) and repairs and protects it!! Definitely a must have Crystal !!
I have one on me each and everyday!
Great for Eye & Brain disorders, regulates metabolism, relieve menstruall tension, gout and rheumatism.
Amazing for aligning the physical and etheric bodies allowing you to access your spiritual purpose!
I did a channeling session with my Labradorite tower... to get more insight to share with you the reasons why it's here to assist us, let me say... my Labradorite friend had a lot to say!! Check it out!
Here is what I got....
Crystal Channeling with Labradorite
"I'm here to help expand your mind more on an intuitive level. To help you tap into your inner self more and understand your purpose in this life time. I'm here to offer protection as well. My main goal is to help you tap into you inner self, to follow your inner voice and intuition, to help you better understand your mission in this life time.
This year is the time for this transition to take place, as more people learn to tap into their inner self... more easier life will flow, the universe will flow and things that are currently situations won't be situations anymore.
As people began to wake up and get away from their mundane, everyday life. It will be as if your opening your eyes for the 1st time and really seeing, really taking it all in and understanding what your calling is, and your purpose is during this life time and how what each of us do does affect another.
To raise your vibration and as this is the mission for this year and why your being sought after you will see collectively a shift. As more and more people begin to experience what we have to offer.
The flash that you see within us is just a small glimpse into a memory... to remember that different times and in different lightening we have the ability to shift our prospective and thoughts. And as these different times come about, to take note of that, realize that.
Take responsibility for your own actions in the response to the situations that come up throughout your life. The flashes are there to remind you that you are responsible for your light that you shine out, or don't. You choose.
I'm also here to offer quite a bit of support. As the year progressives your going to see many shifts in lots of people. And these shifts will be for the better good, as one person begins to shift it ripples out and affects others... and that is our mission here this year to really be able to start the ripple affect with one who will carry it amongst others and collectively change the way people perceive things.
Remember who you are, know that you are protected, your protected by us and so many others. Your not alone, keep following that intuition that you have, tap into it, trust it, follow it!"
