What is Moldavite
Many witches claim Moldavite is one of the most powerful gemstones for magickal use. To understand why they make this claim, you should first learn the Story of Moldavite, which should help explain why some make such a claim.
Moldavite can be found in archeological sites in central Europe dating back to the Stone Age. Medieval European people used Moldavite for arrowheads, cutting tools, and amulets for good fortune, fertility, and protection.
Scientists believe that Moldavite first appeared on Earth over 15 million years ago when an asteroid crashed into current-day Germany. The impact occurred in the southeastern portion of the country and created the Riese and Steinheim craters.
The stone's extraterrestrial origins play a factor in why witches claim it is the most potent magickal gemstone. But that is not the only reason witches claim it is the most powerful. Another reason is the Moldavite Flush.
Depending on your tolerance to the stone you could feel a reaction when you pick up a Moldavite crystal, which is tingling in the hand that is holding the crystal. The tingling will spread out into your entire body. The tingling can even reach your chest or heart.
You may also feel intense heat when wearing or holding Moldavite for the first time. This reaction is called "The Moldavite Flush." The stone's extraterrestrial origins and the Moldavite Flush lead many to believe it is the most powerful crystal.
What is Moldavite used for
Moldavite has a medium or deep green hue and is translucent when held up to a light source. This makes for a beautiful amulet or piece of jewelry.
Moldavite works with all of the chakras. Moldavite is closely associated with the Heart, Crown Chakras, and the Third Eye. Moldavite enhances inner journeys, cosmic consciousness, channeling, and awareness of inter-dimensional or extraterrestrial energies.
Moldavite's effects can range from powerful to nothing at all, depending on the person, and can help one accelerate their spiritual growth, opening the chakras to higher energy frequencies.
Many crystal healers use Moldavite to enhance energetic connections between the Etheric fields and the chakras. When using Moldavite for Meditation, you may want to keep a good grounding stone nearby, such as Black Tourmaline, Red Jasper, or Obsidian, due to Moldavite's intense vibrational energy.
Magickal Properties of Moldavite
Moldavite has magickal properties with protection, wealth, good luck, fertility, psychic ability, and healing.
Psychic Protection: Moldavite protects against psychic attacks by making it difficult for others to connect to your aura when you are wearing it.
Wealth: Moldavite brings wealth by providing solutions that you would not have previously considered. It counteracts cynicism and enables you to see success on many levels.
Good Luck: Moldavite absorbs negative energies, which gives you good fortune and a higher chance of success.
Fertility Ability: For centuries, Moldavite has been worn as an amulet for fertility. By wearing Moldavite, it increases your ability to produce offspring.
Psychic Ability: Carrying or wearing Moldavite strengthens your ability to see the cosmic viewpoint. Because of its intense vibration, the stone links you to higher planes of consciousness and enhances your universal connection.
Physical Healing: Moldavite is an excellent diagnostic tool highlighting the source of illness and aids the healing process due to its high vibrational energy. Also said to possess rejuvenating properties, Moldavite slows down aging by preventing mental degeneration and helps memory retention.
Chakra Healing: Referred to as the stone of the heart, Moldavite directly influences the heart chakra. The heart chakra is responsible for regulating a balance between the interactions we have with the outside world and the ones we have with ourselves.
New Witch Tip:
Balance Moldavite with a grounding stone like Black Tourmaline. It will make your life a lot easier.
The Moldavite Flush My First Experience Holding and Working with the Crystal
When I first held Moldavite many years ago, I remember feeling what they call the "Moldavite Flush" I felt a slight tingle in my hand, and I remember the tingling sensation was growing stronger and started moving up my arm. My face even started to feel warm. I will never forget my first experience interacting with the stone.
After my experience, I knew the stone was powerful and decided to carry the stone around to test it out.
The first week of carrying it around was exhausting. I felt like I had a heavyweight on my chest. It felt like I wasn't testing the crystal, but the crystal was testing me to see if I was strong enough to wear it.
After the first week, I was starting to feel better. Instead of feeling exhausted, I was only feeling spaced out once in a while.
As I began to become attuned to the crystal, I started to notice I was thinking differently. Problems that usually would have been more serious were not nearly as challenging to find solutions. I also noticed I felt more balanced and aware of myself.
It was not until much later that I learned it is best to limit the amount of work with high vibration crystals to handling them a few times a week in the beginning. This lets you build the stamina you will need to work with Moldavite for more extended periods.
How to Cleanse Moldavite
Before you start working with Moldavite, you will want to cleanse and activate your new stone.
Moldavite can be cleansed by smudging, using Florida Water, or putting it outside in the sunlight.
I cleanse Moldavite by using a spray bottle filled with Florida Water to rinse any dirt or debris. After rinsing off the stone, I will usually put it on the window sill and let the sunlight cleanse it. After about an hour or two, I will clear away any stuck negative energy by smudging the Moldavite with sage.
New Witch Tip:
I have noticed some new witches complain on social media about not being able to handle the smell of sage. If sage overwhelms you or a family member with its aroma. Try using Palo Santo instead.
How to Activate Moldavite Stone
The first step in activating your crystal is to hold it between your palms and close your eyes.
Take three deep breaths, centering yourself and focusing on the intended purpose of the crystal.
Now visualize a sparkling light is forming around your hands, and the light is the energy summoned from within you to empower the crystal. Imagine the light is being absorbed into the stone.
The last step is to say aloud the goal of the crystal. If the crystal is intended to bring you good fortune, say something like this three times:
"Bad luck turn,
and bad luck flee,
only good fortune,
comes to me."
That's it. Your crystal is now activated.
Sleeping with Moldavite
Moldavite is a powerful crystal and not for everyone. Many witches recommend sleeping with Moldavite because it activates the dream state. But if you're sensitive to energy or new to working with high vibration crystals, you might want to hold off a bit and get accustomed to working with Moldavite before attempting to wear it while your sleeping.
Here is a story a sister witch once told me about wearing Moldavite while trying to sleep. She usually wears a Moldavite pendant during the day, but she always takes it off before bed.
One night she forgot to take off the pendant and found herself wide awake and unable to sleep. She did not notice until a little after 3 AM that she had forgotten to take off her pendant. She took off the pendant and was fast asleep within 5 minutes.
What is the Dream State
If you have not experienced the dream state, Moldavite will be able to help you achieve it.
Dreams give you messages in various ways. Some provide you with insight into your future, either near or far. Others are symbolic, and some dreams help you unlock what is buried within your subconscious.
Whatever your dream state reveals to you, dreams can only enhance your waking life. Dreams have enormous importance attached to them. Dreams serve a purpose in our lives. They can help us resolve problems or alert us to problems. Dreams help us to relieve tension and give prophetic guidance.
Is Moldavite the Most Powerful Gemstone
No, I do not believe it is the most powerful gemstone overall. I believe Moldavite is the most powerful gemstone when it comes to psychic ability and meditation. That is my opinion, and other witches will have different experiences and prefer various crystals.
When it comes to working with crystals, not everyone will have the same experience. Some will be energy sensitive and might never be able to work with Moldavite, and others may use it every day.
If you have never worked with Moldavite, you really should give it a try and see how you react to it.
