Moonstone is a healing crystal that I have been close to for some time now. I have used her to make a sleep elixir for about 13 years.

But that has really been the extent of our relationship thus far. And so, I really looked forward to working with her for this post.

Here’s how that went …


I didn’t plan to work with my lovely moonstone today. But quite unexpectedly it became clear to me that it was indeed the day we were to start our 3 day journey together!

I was just going about my business, having a relaxing AND productive afternoon. When she entered my mind. And wouldn’t stop calling me, until I retrieved her from her resting place on my dresser. So I put her in my pocket and went with it!

And this has been one of the most restorative days I’ve had in a long while! Taking a little bit of extra time to care for my health and well-being easily fit into my day. That’s unusual!

I felt light as a feather ALL day long. And I accomplished a great deal more than usual without forfeiting time with my family.


The timing for both restoration and productivity to harmoniously coincide in my life, as they did today, could not be more perfect. I am currently hanging out in the space between very large projects. And, therefore, I need to be productive and also manage to make time for the things that restore my mind, body, and soul. In order to continue pushing forward at a reasonable pace.


Another crazy productive day! I’m accomplishing more than usual for sure. And it feels good 😉

It may be in part a result of a pretty good nights sleep last night. As I stated in the intro to this post, I often make an elixir with moonstone to promote sleep. Perhaps, simply having its energy close to me all day had the same effect.

There is an underlying tone of very low level confusion which has stuck with me throughout the entire day today. This seems strange because it tends to occur only when I am overtired. And as I said, I did get plenty of rest. However, I have a big transition taking place in my life right now so it would make perfect sense that one restful night couldn’t possibly clear up the exhaustion.

So … maybe I’m in that space that so fragiley exists between exhaustion and rejuvenation. Where your body is still going, but your brain retired some time ago.


It is approaching 3:00pm on my 3rd day with moonstone. I have just realized that I lost her 😦

I took her to the gym at my local resort with me in the early afternoon. Once there I walked into the pool/hot tub room with her in my hand. I didn’t feel like taking her back to the shower room. So, I set her down on the edge of the hot tub and got in.

I was sure I would remember to pick her up. And I might have if the chemicals in the tub weren’t so strong. They made my throat sore and my eyes water. I had to get out of the tub after just 5 minutes or so. And my mind was distracted by the discomfort I was experiencing.

Still, I felt relaxed. The entire time she was with me I felt incredibly relaxed. In spite of any unpleasant circumstances that arose during our time together.

I did call the front desk of the resort to see if there was any chance that she was still sitting on the hot tub. She was not. And the clerk, who is also a good friend, told me there were children in that room all afternoon.

I’m certain her beautiful little self would have been impossible for a small one to resist. So, she is likely with a little for now. And what a lucky parent they have! They are going to be pretty damn chill as long as they hold on to her!

As a person who has worked with alternative healing and spiritual modalities for decades, I recognize that some of the emotions, thoughts, and events which occurred while I carried my lovely piece of moonstone with me may not be related to her presence.

And still, I don’t discredit the sixth sense I have cultivated about these sorts of things either. And I put forth information which I really do attribute to the energetic frequency that this stone brought to my days.

My intent in approaching this post in this manner, as opposed to the usual style in which healing crystal property posts are written, was to offer something a bit different. More personal. Less general.

I hope this space inspires others to share their experience with healing stones. I think it would be beneficial for everyone to have more information about stones presented in this way available to them.

If you have experiences with healing stones, particularly moonstone, that you would be willing to share, please put them in the comments. I am very excited to hear them ❤ 😉 ❤

And … connect with me on facebook, instagram, and pinterest if you would like to stay abreast of any other happenings going on here at Bohemian Apothecarist.

As always, your presence is greatly appreciated. I adore that you are here. And I just know that we are going to have great fun together ❤
