I just got my Moonstone pendant in the mail today, and I’m already feeling the benefits. It has such incredibly soothing energy! It’s also perfect timing — a Monday, and three days before the due start day of my period.

The funny thing is, I received some very specific instructions – almost ritual style – for the things I needed to do before the delivery. I had to be fully dressed, not in my PJs; and I had planned to wear purple today, but was told, absolutely not, I had to wear black, preferably a high-necked top like a polo-neck (I had to say no to that, because the only one I have is made of merino wool, and I’d cook) — though whichever Angel or guide was sending these instructions, did say that if I got cold, and didn’t have a black cardigan (I do, but it’s the spangly type and didn’t feel right), I could use a midnight-blue one instead (I do have one of those, a plain midnight-blue waterfall cardigan). I was further instructed – last night – that my pendant would definitely arrive today (the latest date was Thursday), and I should wear it at my throat chakra to start with, only moving it to my heart chakra when I was used to its energy.

I usually use the Cleansing Breath on crystal jewellery, because it’s just about the most personal cleansing method there is, but I was told specifically not to do so, but instead to use my normal affirmation – spoken aloud instead of thought about, which is what you have to do when breathing on a crystal – while running the pendant under the tap.

I get the change in cleansing method, but the specific dress code instructions are new to me. Normally crystals or crystal pendants don’t mind what I’m wearing, providing I’m not starkers; and I don’t get specific chakra proximity instructions, nor a prescribed cleansing method.

I’ve bought a number of crystals and pieces of crystal jewellery online, but I’ve never had such specific instructions for preparing to meet a new crystal friend. There must be a reason. It’s very strange — but then again, this is Moonstone: maybe it’s a mixture of the current Moon phase (waning crescent, two days from the New Moon), strong advice from my guides/Angels, and even the request of Diana and/or Selene themselves (and if that’s what it is, it would be the first time they’ve ever reached out to me)!

Ceida, if you happen to read this, and you can make sense of it, please let me know what you think happened. Thanks crystal sister. Blessings to you.

Love and Light.

@Anne, that’s unusual! It could be that the stone is trying to communicate; I’d say it definitely wants some attention for some reason. I recommend you keep a close eye on your ring, because the stone might be unhappy where it is, and the whirring you heard, might be its attempt to vibrate itself free of the setting, if it doesn’t like it. If you have crystal attunement, you might want to meditate with your Moonstone, and ask it whether there’s a special reason foe its actions.

Love and Light.

@Kristina, a Moonstone needs the light energy of the Moon in order to recharge. It’s best to leave it on an Amethyst cluster over the night of the Full Moon, from Sunset through to dawn (or Moonrise to Moonset), for a full and thorough recharge. I call Moonstone the Lunar equivalent of Heliodor: each crystal is so tied to its respective “planet”, they won’t charge at all well under the other one’s light, so there’s as little point in charging a Moonstone in the daytime, as there is in charging a Heliodor at night. Moonstone is a very gentle crystal, very easy on the body and energic fields – Heliodor is a far more energetic stone which I personally love to work with, but unlike Moonstone, Heliodor is not a stone to help you sleep peacefully… not unless you’re being kept awake because you’re cold, anyway. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, so I can’t afford to get cold; Heliodor, among other helpful powers it has, can actually warm you up bodily. In fact that happened to me last night: it was clear and cold, and I ended up half uncovered, freezing and extremely sore, but my Heliodors – eleven oval-faceted gold beauties (no kidding, they look like faceted, transparent Gold) in a pendant and one beautiful translucent yellow tumblestone which is kind of a crystal BFF – fixed things inside ten minutes. Moonstone wouldn’t have done that….. but it would help me sleep on those nights when my mind just won’t shut down. My last non-rainbow Moonstone pendant, a gorgeous 12mm pure white cat’s-eye, was stolen from me back in the 90s, but I purchased another, not a cat’s-eye this time, as far as I know, on Amazon yesterday.

Love and Light.
