Special note: sometimes opalite is referred to as moonstone, but it is not. It is a man-made glass. Opalite is a trade name for man-made opalescent glass and various opal simulants.
Opalite, a man-made glass, is a perfect tool for increasing your intuition and trusting the process of becoming intuitive. Psychic awareness includes the ability to use the six sensory gifts, or “clairs”—clairvoyance, claircognizance, clairaudience, clairsentience, clairolfaction, and clairgustation. Use opalite to connect with the archangels of the Divine feminine—Auriel, and Tzaphkiel. This pearly stone is also beneficial for spiritual rituals involving the Divine feminine, the Goddess, the moon, and all the mythological goddesses. This is also a good stone to connect with the 13 moons and the women and teachings of the International Council of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, goodwill ambassadors from Alaska, North, South, and Central America; Africa; and Asia with a mission of world peace.
Opalite promotes dreaming. Dreams provide tools for self-knowledge and help bring mental clarity. With moonstone under your pillow, use the messages of the Dreamtime to restore mental balance.
