The Importance of Moss Agate Crystal Healing Right Now...
With everything we've all been through in the past few months I've wracked my brain trying to find the perfect crystal for this challenging time and eventually I stumbled across Moss Agate. It found me really, like crystals always have a way of doing in my life. However the importance of this crystal right now is so glaring to me that I felt compelled to take the time to break it down for all of you. It isn't my usual thing to write a whole blog on one specific crystal but this one begged to be talked about in depth. So if you're interested in learning more read on...
First we'll need to take a look at the reality of what is happening in all of our lives right now, Covid-19, a new virus that has literally taken the world by storm. We have all been forced into a timeout of sorts with our own thoughts and feelings surrounding it all. There has been chaos, fear and confusion running the show during this pandemic for a lot of us and it's time to take a look at how we can overcome the veil of darkness that has been draped over our eyes. In this blog we'll discuss how working with one particular crystal, Moss Agate, can help us if we are open to seeing our individual truth.
Here are a few things Moss Agate is beneficial for and then we'll break it all down: (taken from Charms of Light webpage because she says it all) "♥ Prosperity ♥ Success ♥ Abundance ♥ Congeniality ♥ Compatibility ♥ Healing ♥ Restoration ♥ Fertility of plants ♥ Protection of the earth ♥ Creativity ♥ Confidence ♥ Strength ♥ Development of new friendships ♥ Finding a compatible lover."
"In addition to the generic healing properties of Agate and Chalcedony, Moss Agate is a stone of new beginnings. Refreshes the soul and enables you to see beauty in all you behold. Moss Agate reduces sensitivity to weather and environmental pollutants. It attracts abundance in wealth and improves self-esteem. Develops strength and the ability to get along with others.

Now while that in itself is plenty of information let's dig a little deeper. We'll start on a global level and look at the facts that ever since we all decided to stay home and practice social distancing during this pandemic, our world has actually taken that time to heal herself. We might have been drawn to start a garden or spend more time out in nature to heal our own hearts through all of this. Either way most of us have been drawn to connect deeper and see our planet in ways we've been too distracted to notice before. Moss agate works with earth energy and has the physical look of greenery, almost forest like in its appearance. When we put it on we can easily set the intention of connecting with Mother Earth on a deeper level, finding respect and honoring all she provides us with every single day, from the oxygen we breathe to the food we eat, without Mother Earth we wouldn't be alive and its energetically important we take the time to send gratitude to her whenever possible. She is a living breathing organism and will feel our energy toward her. Moss agate also reduces sensitivity to environmental pollutants and weather which we could all use right now if we are to stay healthy and maintain our vitality through this crisis. We also need not create more chaos in the midst of all this.
On a bigger scale it assists us with embracing new beginnings, which in my opinion is exactly what are all experiencing right now on a global level. Since we've slowed down, many of us have started to question what has actually been working for us and what hasn't. The truth of it is the way we were going before all of this took place was unsustainable, we were too busy to take a rest, too distracted to hear our inner voice and too tired to nurture the things and people who are meaningful to us. So now here we are on the brink of a fresh slate, a lot of us confused and uncertain of what's to come and also grieving what we thought was normal. With this realization, fear and stress have been at the forefront of our minds, we feel a sense of powerlessness and loss of control. What we need to do is surrender to the heart space and find peace in our own lanes right now. Know that all of our feelings are valid and in order to heal them we have to feel them. Embrace this new way of being. Moss agate balances the emotions and encourages trust and hope. Surrendering to the higher purpose of all of this and trusting the process is how we'll get to the other side with grace.
As we begin to venture out of this space of isolation and social distancing we'll need a little jolt of inspiration to keep ourselves happy and excited for the new reality that's coming and Moss agate is once again, here to the rescue, inspiring us after a time of stagnation and bringing us into a more openly creative space. Finding those things that really make us happy, that truly let our souls express themselves, in our work and in our home life. This amazing crystal also helps us to get along with others, which we'll need as we navigate the politics of this experience moving forward. Seek to understand another's point of view instead of dismissing or degrading it. Realizing that each of us live in our own worlds created by our upbringing and life experiences. Taking the time to listen and understand another's perspective instead of judge is crucial right now, doing this will start to rewire the structure of our global energetic system and will help us thrive in the future. Moss agate promotes self expression and good communication and when we wear or carry it with us we can choose to set that intention as we move out into the world.
On a physical level Moss Agate speeds up recovery from illness, which during a pandemic we all could use, from those who are sick with the virus, to those who are just sick with fear and anxiety, the recovery process is crucial to our overall health. It is anti-inflammatory, cleanses the circulatory and elimination systems, and boosts the immune system which means it also assists in detoxifying the body. It assists midwives by lessening pain and ensuring a good delivery, this can also be applied in the realm of giving birth to new ideas as we move forward. Moss Agate prevents hypoglycemia and dehydration, treats infections, colds and flu, and lowers fevers all with the intention of healing at the heart space. And while I'm not saying putting on a Moss Agate crystal bracelet will cure Covid-19 what it can do is benefit anyone energetically that might be going through a tough time with this illness. As a way to stay connected to the intention of this crystal and have something to believe in when isolated from society. People fighting this virus will have a companion to help see them through, to help them not feel alone and to talk to when needed. It can be used as a physical manifestation of a higher power, something greater than themselves and also connecting them to the infinite power of Mother Earth for their own healing.
Moss agate has an incredible amount of benefits for all of us during this mind bending time. We can no longer deny what's been stirring for a long time. It's time for big change, big healing, big truth and big dreams to awaken and with the help of Moss Agate by our side we will surely find abundance, success and strength in the steps we take to move forward into a brighter future for ourselves and our children. Moss Agate sends us a message of hope and inspiration that if we learn how to live in harmony with the Earth and others that we can overcome anything together. We are all one. We are all connected and in this together, the sooner we realize this and start to practice real compassion and empathy for our fellow human beings the more abundance we'll experience together and on a global level. Moss Agate waits to assist us in exactly the same way our planet waits to assist us in raising our vibration to one of unity, love and peace!
