How To Awaken Your Inner Magic with Labradorite
Often thought of as the gemstone of magic Labradorite serves to awaken one’s innate gifts from within them. Use this stone to go on the adventure of your lifetime as you embark on the journey of self-discovery and find your way towards true fulfilment. Regardless of where you are on your own crystal or spiritual journey, Labradorite is an excellent stone for those who seek to awaken higher awareness, a deeper connection to themselves and an enhancement of their unique spiritual gifts.
The History of Labradorite
This magical stone was first discovered in Labrador, Canada, late in the 1700’s. Its beautiful iridescent hues of green, blue, black and orange make it truly
unique – even just looking at it, you can almost sense its high energy and healing properties.
According to Eskimo Indian legends, it was believed that the Aurora Borealis (aka the Northern Lights) was once trapped within the stones that lined the Canadian coast. The lights remained within these stones until one day a warrior began to free them by striking at the stones with his spear. The legend says that Labradorite crystals represent the last remaining stones that still have the essence of Northern Lights locked within.
Since then, Labradorite deposits have been discovered in many places around the world including Finland, Russia, Australia, Mexico, The US and Madagascar.
Labradorite Crystal Benefits
Associated with the Crown, Third Eye, and Throat Chakras, Labradorite is said to awaken higher awareness and unlock the magic that lives inside of us. These
mental and intuitive abilities can include:
- Past-life recall
- Coincidence control
- Psychic abilities
- Access to the Akashic Records
- And more
Labradorite is a plagioclase feldspar with a hardness of 6 to 6.5, making it very functional in jewellery. Wear this stone as a pendant to centre your conscious awareness into the multiple layers of reality. In ring form, Labradorite can be used to aid you in sending and receiving the impulses of spiritual gifts. In earrings, it is said that this stone can be a powerful aid in receiving messages from your spirit guides and other higher vibrational beings.
In meditation, place Labradorite over your Third Eye Chakra to sharpen your
intuition and facilitate visions into the past or future and any other planes throughout time and timelessness. Working with this stone will help you disconnect from any conscious or unconscious desire to control others. Labradorite allows you to shift your focus onto your own existence, needs, gifts and wellbeing. It is a crystal that awakens the adventurous spirit within sparking curiosity for the path of self-mastery.
Just as holding this stone towards the light allows its true inner beauty to be revealed, Labradorite teaches us that connecting with our own inner light is what gives us true beauty, power and strength.
Cleansing and Charging Labradorite
Keep the magic of your Labradorite crystals strong and flowing by regularly cleansing and charging your stones. Cleansing and charging your crystals ensures that they will remain powerfully effective as you continue to work with them.
There are a wide variety of tools that can be used to cleanse and recharge crystals, including:
- The light of the full moon
- Other purifying crystals
Regardless of which tools you choose it’s important to set an intention prior to purifying your crystals. Be clear about your goals like allowing your stones to release any unneeded or unwanted energy and/or resetting your stones to their natural vibration.
Harmonising Stones for Labradorite
Working with Labradorite alone for any of the purposes already discussed can be highly effective. However pairing Labradorite with other crystals can serve to amplify your intentions and facilitate better results. These stones harmonise well with other feldspar stones.
Pair with Lapis Lazuli to aid your intentions around finding inner truth and authentic self-expression. Using Labradorite with Moldavite can help you break down any barriers that block you from expansion and personal growth. Find encouragement to explore your interests, find a new direction and change your life for the better when you pair Labradorite with Moonstone.
Labradorite and Astrology
Labradorite is a powerful stone for all individuals, but it can be especially helpful for those who have the signs of Leo, Scorpio and Sagittarius in their charts.
In the Zodiac world, Leo is the lion. These natives tend to fall more on the extraverted side of the spectrum and as such, often forget to focus on themselves. This often deprives them of the beautiful journey of self-discovery. Labradorite is an excellent tool for the self-aware Leo who wants to grow and transform. Leos can use this stone to look within and spark curiosity for the
adventure of self-exploration.
Similarly, this stone can aid those with Scorpio energy in their birth chart as they embark on the journey of transformation. Labradorite will help the Scorpio in you discover inner truths and work with the shadows that block powerful personal growth and connection to your inner gifts.
For those with Sagittarius in their chart, Labradorite can help to cool the fiery nature of the mind, creating space for the imagination to thrive. Ever the spontaneous type, another benefit is that this stone may help the Sagittarius think things through before leaping into action. This is especially beneficial for Sagittarians that find themselves riddled with regret following negative experiences caused by spontaneity.
