IMG_0685.PNG I was crystal shopping this weekend, with a purpose - for only one piece of turquoise - but then another caught my eye. Because it was catching light from somewhere else. There was none overhead (I checked). A fellow saw me look twice at it and said, "You know what that's for, don'tcha?"

Lore of the Inuit peoples claims Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. It is a Stone of Magic, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers, and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance.

Wearing or carrying Labradorite enhances the mental and intuitive abilities of clairvoyance, telepathy, prophecy and coincidence control, and assists in communication with higher guides and spirits in accessing psychic readings and past-life recall. It provides an ease in moving between the worlds, and permits a safe and grounded return to the present.

This is the same man who was struck by my hands and insisted that I use them well. This morning, as I complete this post, I read:

Labradorite helps develop the hands' sensitivity, making it useful for physiotherapists and all who use the power of touch to heal.
