So with all my (no)moneys, I bought a Labradorite head piece. Yah, you see that thing in the middle? That’s mine! 😝 (well, similar. Each one is hand made slightly differently) It will be here in about two weeks (its being hand-crafted now by a beautiful spiritual soul, so it will be choc full of good energy).

LABRADORITE

🔮 a protective stone that is known as the ‘Bringer of Light’ as it deflects negative and unwanted energies from outsiders.

🔮 it banishes fear and insecurity, and brings a grounding emotional stability. Like an emotional bullet-proof vest that reduces the negative impact from outside situations on your psychological state.

🔮 it boosts the ability of the mind to analyse a situation rationally and with that brings intuitive wisdom from the subconscious.

🔮 it stops energy loss (keeps stability in your aura - note if your energies are negative to begin with i.e. You are chronically angry or depressed, then then the negative aura will be held steadfast with the inclusion of this stone. Best for when dealing with a pre-determined potentially upsetting situation.)

Overall, Labradorite is a very strong, stable and grounding stone that assists the wearer in being unfazed and indifferent to the negative activity around them by holding their energy aura steadfast, and allows them to wisely plan a positive reaction to any given difficult situation. Best for potentially difficult emotional times, such as the decline of a relationship or a potentially uncomfortable foreign social situation.

The Wiccan’s Glossary

Amber – considered a master healing gemstone. Baltic amber absorbs negative energy which is turns into positive energy. It is used for its calming effects and as a healing stone for joint disorders, stomach ailments, and spleen and kidney problems. In previous years, physicians prescribed amber for heart problems, headaches and arthritis treatment. Useful memory aid, encourages peacefulness, trust, wisdom.

“On his first hand he wore rings of stone,
Iron, amber, wood and bone.
There were rings unseen on his second hand.
One was blood in a flowing band.
One of air all whisper thin,
And the ring of ice had a flaw within.
Full faintly shone the ring of flame,
and the final ring was without name.”

(Wacom has failed me once again and I decided that we should go our separate ways. I’m with Huion now and she seems really nice, I hope we’ll make lot of babies… And by babies, I mean drawings, just to be clear.)
