Hi




Today whilst meditating I noticed a stone archway leading to the South. At the centre/top of the arch was a large (about 2 inches long) oval milky moonstone
with three sprigs of lavendar tucked behind it.




I've tried a search for moonstone, but not found anything. Other sources I've looked at seem to give multiple meanings to moonstone. Anyone know
anything about moonstones?

From http://www.earthbow.com/crystals/frames.htm:
Metaphysical properties of
moonstone:
...

Moonstone's energies are soothing
and nurturing. They can help calm and prevent
over-reactions to personal situations that involve the
emotions.
Moonstone's energies are
feminine in nature. They can help us all become more
sensitive and loving. The subtle energies of moonstone
can help to open and cleanse your heart. They are
soothing and healing to the mind, emotions, and
body.
Although moonstone is seen as
a feminine influence, it can also help balance the male
and female aspects of yourself. This makes moonstone a
good choice for men too because many men could benefit
from being more sensitive and better able to express
love.
In India, moonstone is
considered sacred. It is said to bring good fortune, but,
more importantly, it is seen as a tool to promote
spiritual enlightenment. Moonstone can help you become
more intuitive. It can also boost psychic
ability.
Moonstone has a powerful
effect on women's menstrual cycles. Women are cautioned
about wearing or carrying moonstone at times of the full
moon or when they are menstruating.
Moonstone and
synergy:

Moonstone is a good choice
for those born during The Moon of Flowering - (21 May -20
Jun). This is the time to extend your perceptions beyond
your senses and explore intuition, and those born during
this time can benefit from this influence.
Moonstone is a good choice for those born
under the zodiac sign of Gemini.

Also, at www.mooncavecrystals.com:
Moonstone fosters
happiness, good fortune, nurturing, unselfishness,
humanitarian love, hope, spiritual insight, easy
childbirth, safe travel on water, new beginnings,
abundance and ancient wisdom. This stone gets in touch
with our feelings and is linked to the moon. It is best
to attune its energies to the moon's phases. Moonstone is
protective of women and nature, and is a sacred stone of
the moon goddess.Image

Mouse - thank you so much for taking the time to
find all this great information.

Oh that really hit home!

edited to add a PS - the three sprigs of
lavender fit this too. I looked up uses of lavender and
found this:
"As an herbal medicine
lavender is and has been very widely used. For soothing,
relaxing qualities few herbs can be claimed as
effective." from The History of
Lavender
Now facing over the South
Arch, which was the way I went today. So I'm moving into
a calmer place perhaps? It could make sense given the
rest of the journey as it was a good "soothing
and nurturing" kind of experience.
SED - that's really interesting about the fae.

If I may offer a
suggestion, have you ever considered a
"garnet?"
I like
this stone and it's energy. It has been used as a scared
stone by many Native American, African Tribal Elders, the
Aztecs and even the Mayans. Garnet is known as a
"stone of health" ... extracting
negative energy from the chakras and transmuting positive
energy to areas in need. [moving the energy in a gentle
manner]
You mention 3 sprigs of
Lavender. The number 3 symbolizes a trilogy - spirit,
mind and body, past, present and future, father, mother
and child and sometimes appears to those who are seeking
self-discovery, acceptance of emotions, balance in their
life.

I had been
wondering about the symbolism of three. I hadn't gotten
as far as trying to check it though. So you helped a lot
here as I didn't have a clue where to start on number
symbolism.
Everything you say for 3
fits me. Quite amazing!
I used to
have a garnet necklace years ago, but I gave it to my
mom. I like garnets. They do feel nice. I didn't know
they did what you say for extracting negative stuff.
Well, my mom needed it at the time more than me so I'm
glad she's got it.

for the help.~ Crow Woman

Lotus, thank you for sharing your insights on
Garnet. I was drawn to a garnet ring and garnet earrings
for our wedding day... I gifted myself with them for the
occasion. We wore red silk with gold embroidery on it, I
wore the top of a traditional Tirara from India, which I
had altered to fit my tall self and my style. Added gold
lace to the sleeves to extend them, lowered the tailored
waist, added some "edwardian" style
folds... I used the skirt for extra material to lengthen
it, and to make silk roses for in my bouquet (along with
the recycled paper roses, the gold silk ribbons, the
dried hydrangea and three branches of Hoya; one each from
my plant, which came from my mother's plant, which came
from my grandmother's plant, which grew from the branch
that was in my mother's wedding bouquet). EarthSky's
shirt was made by his sister, and was in the style of a
"pirate" shirt. We wore deep black
jeans to bring the attention to the red and gold silk...
But I digress...
Garnet was just so
fitting. It fitted our wedding I had been told that
Garnet is a stone that historically symbolizes servitude
to the husband, but that didn't feel right to me at all.
Your insights about Garnet resonate with me so much more.
I do not wear the jewellery often, but do take it out in
situations where I feel the need for extra balance,
harmony and protection. I see that the symbolism of
Garnet on our wedding day is perhaps deeper than I ever
thought. Thank you. ImageImage

Mouse and Lotus
I've been wondering
what I could get my friend for her wedding. She's wearing
red. Something with garnets would be perfect.
She'll be arriving here on Friday so I'll have
to start looking about fast.

Oooooooh, what a
beautiful vision. In my mind's eye I could see you both
clearly. How fitting you chose Garnets for your wedding
day, yes indeed very symbolic and an incredible healing
stone for you.
I was especially
moved by the tradition of selecting a branch of Hoya
[passing down from generation to generation] to add to
your bouquest. The perfect finishing touch!

In reference to 2Crows post on lavender..I use and
produce essential oil blends and healing
mixes..
I have(had) very high blood
pressure and rapid heart rate..so bad I endured
nosebleeds and such excruciating migraines I couldnt
exist. The air ...literally... hurt..
Lavender..blended with Spearmint and
YlangYlang..have brought all that to a stop. Unless Im
unfaithful and dont keep it near me. ;)
But lavender is the essence of my oil
collection..Im very partial to it..and Im very partial to
moonstone. Although..believe it or not, I dont know WHY I
am..
I just go with the
flow
