My Top 3 Stones for Spiritual Development

For the past few months, I have been working with three stones very closely:: Labradorite, Selenite, and Apophyllite.  These stones have been by my side pretty consistently - I place them on my desk while I work, and bring them to my altar when I meditate.  When I for a walk, I pick one to hold in my pocket, and when I sleep, I pick one to place under my pillow.  

These three stones are absolutely fantastic for those who are seeking spiritual development and a deeper insight of self.  Just holding one of these babies makes my energetic field get all happy and warm.  I notice that when I hold one of these stones while meditating, I am able to find a sense of deep calm and stillness.  

If you've been looking to add a new stone to your collection, I highly recommend working with one of these stones.


Working with Labradorite has helped me to have a stronger connection to my own intuition and my higher self. 

Labradorite is connected with the Aurora Borealis and the Welsh goddess Arianrhod, who is associated with the moon and stars.  This stone is said to provide us with soothing and intuitive energies of the moon and has a sense of magic about it.  This stone is fantastic to use for meditation, healing practices, or to connect with your higher self.

Labradorite is also a strong protector and is said to be able to shield you from negative energies.  It is known to kindle the imagination and allow you to bring your dreams into reality.

When I first started working with Reiki, I would wear this stone or carry it in my pocket.  It gave me confidence when working with energy healing and allowed me to explore my own personal way of working with Reiki.  That is how I developed my Intuitive Reiki Sessions -- playing with my creativity, knowing I was safe, and trusting my intuition.  I feel like the energy of this stone helped me to get there.  The energy of this stone feels like an old friend and reminds me of the Hermit Tarot card. 


As Labradorite works with the stars and moon, Selenite is also associated with the celestial realm.  In fact, its name comes from the Greek word for moon.  If you are looking to nurture your connection to the moon and her feminine, intuitive, and soothing nature, Selenite is the perfect stone for you.  

Selenite is a stone that I turn to when I am need of a deep and inner calm.  I use it often to help quiet my mind if I am feeling especially distracted during my meditation practice, or it helps me to come to a  centered place of stillness when I work with is as a part of my restorative yoga practice.  

Selenite is known to be a stone that carries a very high vibration, and this makes it amazing for those looking to work with their spiritual selves.  I use this stone when I am looking to connect to my Crown Chakra or Higher Chakras.  It also sends healing energy to the Heart Chakra, and balances the Third Eye. 


This stone feels like absolute magic.  I love its shape and color, and I love how magnetized I feel to it.  I had just been researching this stone when I decided that I wanted to add it to my collection.  This is an uncommon stone, so I figured I would have to order it online.  That same day, I went for a walk, and found the stone in a jewelry shop!  I was amazed at how fast it all happened, but I knew that this was an important stone, and one that I needed to work with.

When I hold Apophyllite, I feel my Third Eye and Crown Chakras opening.  I have noticed that when working with this stone during meditation, that I am able to "see" things in my mind's eye with more clarity and insight.  I also like to hold this stone to calm my nerves if I am feeling anxious or worried.  I also use this stone as a guide when I am working on clients with Intuitive Reiki Healings, as it really  helps me to tap into my intuition in a confident way.

I've nicknamed my Apophyllite my "Mystic Stone"  because it just resonates mystical and magical energy.

If you are looking to purchase stones online, I recommend Lavish Earth or Stone and Violet.
