Moon and Sun. Luminosity and Shadows. Positive and Negative. Yin and Yang. Masculine and Feminine. These aspects are held within all of us... opposites that are essential to one another for a balanced existence within us and the entire Universe.
Our masculine side relates to our logical and analytical ways of thinking, our ability to take initiative, create and comprehend structured plans, and our sense of direction and order. It's the side of us that gives. It is where our strength, courage, and independence stems from. It is our own personal Sun, our Yang energy.
Our feminine side relates to our nurturing, emotional, intuitive, and creative characteristics. It's our ability to go with the flow, adapt to our ever-changing lives and the world around us. It is our receptivity, our desire to give and receive love, our empathy, and our capacity to tune in to what we need. It is our own personal Moon, our Yin energy.
Valuing both your inner male and inner female energies, and letting each step forward equally and honorably, will help you to show up and live your life as the best version of yourself.
I handpicked each of these pairs, focusing on not only feeling a physical balance between the two, but also an energetic balance. Each of these Sun and Moon stone sets has been blessed with Reiki healing energy and infused with my intentions for the crystals to radiate at their highest possible vibrations for whoever they are meant to be with.
Sunstone is a crystal that resonates with your divine masculine side. It is a joyful stone that transmutes negative energy into positive energy. Working with Sunstone helps to restore your inner fire. It has a clearing effect on your aura, and it brings in feelings of warmth, clarity, and a desire to share blessings with those around you. It encourages independence, personal freedom, courage, strength, knowledge, integrity, truth, benevolence, and gracious leadership.
Moonstone is a crystal that resonates with your divine feminine side. Working with its energy helps you to tune into the receptive feminine forces that reside within you. It is a useful stone for new beginnings, as it helps you to rediscover yourself in a deeper sense, with compassion and loving awareness. Moonstone has a calming effect on your emotions. It instills a general sense of emotional stability, helping to ease stress and lessen overreactions while it draws in feelings of love, tenderness, and harmony. Moonstone reminds us that everything takes part in cycles of change, including ourselves, and adaptability is a key aspect to promoting inner growth and overall well-being.
Partnering these stones together is like introducing a marriage counselor to your inner male and inner female. Working with their combined energies offers you the opportunity to establish a divine balance within, so that you may easily ebb and flow through life and feel a profound sense of equilibrium within and around yourself.
My offered suggestions for working with this Sunstone and Moonstone set:
Generally, you would work with the Sunstone on the dominant (transmitting) side of your body, and the Moonstone on the non-dominant (receiving) side. But do whatever feels right to you!
- Hold in your hands while meditating.
- Place one on each side of your pillow while sleeping.
- Set each stone on opposite sides of your altar, sacred space, yoga mat, work desk, creative space, etc.
- Follow your intuition!
Each set comes with the exact stones you see in the corresponding photo (these are natural crystal chucks that have not been tumbled or polished), a detailed description card, a mini bag of loose sage leaves that you can burn for cleansings and blessings, and lavender buds for peaceful travels. All lovingly packaged in a black satin pouch.
