Moonstones for fertility
This month on #fertilityinspiration we are combining a little bit of science with nature. At the new moon this month (October 27th) I drew 1 card from the Creation Fertility Toolkit. Why? Well, because I will also be discussing the benefits of some important functional hormone tests to help on your fertility journey. I shall be sharing the tests with you over the next couple of weeks so please sign up to join me at#fertilityinspiration.
Oh yes – before I forget; I apologise that I have not offered my usual video this month but this new moon cycle has brought me many technological issues including no WI-FI for over a week!
So, let us begin this new moon cycle with card 37 from the Creation Fertility Toolkit. Moonstone.
Due to the emotional and physical journey of trying to conceive I believe that fertility and pregnancy are arguably the most important times to benefit from healing gemstones. Gems including crystals have been worn for thousands of years and are rich in power and magic. You probably recognise that you are both unconsciously and consciously attracted to crystals/gems/beautiful things. Whatever you are attracted to you can either wear or hold it/them to empower your fertility or positive intentions.
Moonstone: With its watery pearly white sheen the crystal moonstone is believed to soothe and balance emotions without judgement, neutralising negative thoughts and feelings; open the heart and subconscious mind, release emotional patterns encourage focus and positivity.

It helps identify emotional patterns that are stored in the subconscious, and serves as a guardian to contain explosive passions, and to stimulate confidence and composure.
