The iridescent luminance of this peacock-colored stone is what mineral experts call “flash” or the schiller effect. As you move it around at different angles, you can see flashing gleams of its prismatic colors.
Labradorite doesn’t just awaken you to your higher powers; it does so in a way that’s authentic, down to earth, safe and clarifying. It does this by acting as a connector bridge between the logical mind and your intuition. This vital balance allows you to access important information for life guidance as well as higher states of consciousness.
It’s also conducive for banishing fears, insecurities and promoting self-confidence, and trust in the universe.
As if it couldn’t get any better, pretty and prismatic Labradorite is one of the most powerful protective stones against psychic attacks, deflecting undesirable energies. It creates a shield throughout the aura while strengthening your inner forces. Empaths and Highly Sensitive Persons take note.
An example of how to use Labradorite is to meditate with it on your Third Eye before going to sleep to become aware of truths through dreams – realities you aren’t aware of in the waking state.
I also tried meditating with this crystal during the day. All kinds of important details I had overlooked came to mind. There were so many I had to stop meditating and write down these helpful insights before I forgot them. I also felt I had better discernment when making decisions.
Labradorite is also an excellent stone to meditate with before doing a tarot reading.
