How to clean your Moonstone

This wonderful gemstone called moonstone is one of the most well-known gemstones, and like all other stone varieties, moonstone is a divine creation of the Mother Nature.
Eons of years of earthly formation process have resulted in moonstone brimming with excellent mystical and spiritual healing properties. These properties mean by wearing moonstone, the wearer will benefit from its magic. Personally I have some moonstone pendants and I wear them often to soothe my mood and calm my nerves

Well, to be truly effective, Maria Duval recommends us to purify it as the stone may have absorbed a lot of external and environmental impurities as it changes hands. All these are imprinted within the stones and stored in their "crystalline" memory. It is always advisable to erase any "memory" recorded in the stone structure before they are worn.

So to purify your precious moonstone, Maria Duval advises you to deep it in a glass of spring water for 24 hours. After that, do so regularly (about every second month) in order to discharge the gemstone of any negative energies it may possibly have accumulated in its structure.

To "recharge" your gemstone with lunar fluid, all you need to do is to expose your moonstone pendant to the moonlight overnight, preferably when the moon is in the Ascendant (the period extending from the New Moon to the Full Moon), on a window sill just to take an example.

Do this every two months too, after first purifying your stone in spring water. That way you will always have available a moonstone accessory capable of working at the best of its magic potentials.


Maria Duval on Spiritual Higher Level

Unhappiness gets into us easily because we mislead the whole situation or partial events around us. If we are oblivious to the helicopter view of the situation, we begin to worry and suspect, and this can lead to negatively destructive attitude. From my own experience, this kind of behaviour is prevalent in a office working environment where there are always a lot of gossips and speculations flying around about what could be happening, or so and so could be fired due to downsizing.

Maria Duval gives an example of this scenario. The deep plunging feeling we feel when after being angry, we come to realise that the true situation is not as perverse as what we perceive to be. But it is all too late, for we have already aggrieved another party for the rashness we committed. Yes, in this case, we are very wrong for we jump into wrong conclusion.

Higher spiritual planeThinking back, I admit I used to be rash in the past and by adopting this attitude, I have caused a lot of unhappiness for people whom I had crossed into my path. I feel so sorry for my rashed actions in the past. I was too young and ignorant then. Thank you Maria Duval for the guidance...

Open up and allow rays of positive lights to pass through your soul. This brings back assuredness rather than fear which is very unwholesome to our spirits. Ultimately, this is your decision to make, and it is wonderful as you realise you have a choice in life to choose what is better for you. And in the process, please come to the understanding that all misfortunes in your life are not created by others or events outside your life, but it is you who have created these misfortunes through your past actions.

Then we tend to judge through our own set of "filters" what events are good and what are not. In other words, our feelings reflect what happens from one moment to the next. That is why, it is highly important that when we are feeling down, we just tell ourselves to change the circumstances we believe to be responsible for our unhappiness, and revising the context in which we are suffering will put an end to that suffering.

Maria Duval states that we have to understand exactly that it is our reaction to external events that makes us how we behave and feel. Yes, it is possible to free ourselves from this fix model of behaviourial reactions which consists of believing that you are responsible for the destiny of the entire universe.

Finally, let me write that the only universe for which you are responsible is your own inner universe, the universe of your thoughts, feelings, emotions and desires. Your spiritual development depends on your ability to see clearly within this universe. And it is this new vision that holds the key to your security. It is the basics of your future successes since when you are aware of the pitfalls, your journey through life will be easy and happy.


Moon That Lunar Pull

Today I wish to write about one of my favourite topics again. Yes I have great affinity for our cosmic satellite Moon. In fact I am very curious about various moons of our bigger planets in the Solar System. I think they are mysterious and lonely out there. One of the moons of Saturn, Titan, is even thought to have water composition which is essential for life!

But for now, let me talk about our lunar source of energy. Lunar Crescent giant sphere with only 1/6th of our gravity on Earth. And because it is so near to us, I think this source of lunar energy means a source of mystical power! This power really acts on every living thing on this planet and our life. Maria Duval has said that its power has been acted on and affected our behaviour without us realising.

Lunar phases and changes have inspired many creative minds since ancient times. Great poets were inspired by full moon nights that they composed unforgettable poems about the beauty of Moon, like famous Chinese poet from Tang dynasty, Li Bai.

A cup of wine, under the flowering trees;
I drink alone, for no friend is near.
Raising my cup I beckon the bright moon,
For her, with my shadow, will make three people.

The moon, alas, is no drinker of wine;
Listless, my shadow creeps about at my side.
Yet with the moon as friend and the shadow as slave
I must make merry before the Spring is spent.

To the songs I sing the moon flickers her beams;
In the dance I weave my shadow tangles and breaks.
While we were sober, three shared the fun;
Now we are drunk, each goes their way.
May we long share our eternal friendship,
And meet at last on the Cloudy River of the sky.
Realise how many times "moon" is repeated in this poetic creation?

Other very "right-minded" professions like clairvoyants, psychics, astrologers, authors, painters and creative artists always look to the Moon for inspirations when they need it. Farmers may also realise how forces of the Moon may affect their crops..

Maria Duval has no doubt that Moon has a strong influence in our lives, more than other celestial bodies because of its close proximity to us. It influences our actions, intuitions, feelings and emotions. It has been said that on full moon nights, people tend to go out more than on other days of the month. This has led to higher traffic incidents on these nights. Of course, our sea shores are affected by the lunar effects everyday of the year. Hence you can see that finding answers to all the complex questions raised by this astral body is no small matter.

Indeed we could extend this list of "whys" indefinitely. Lunar energy is really a mysterious force ever since the past till now. It is a source of energy psychics and spiritualists wants to tap on as it is such a force that can help them in their rites. So never just appreciate the beauty of the full Moon again but understand its awesome influence it has on us.
