I absolutely love and adore magical, synchronistic moments in life as they are a reminder that a higher power and universal source are always with us, trying to guide and help us in whatever way they can; that's exactly what happened to me just the other day. My mom and sister had come to NYC for a visit and we were taking a stroll through the Manhattan Villages- West, Greenwich and East, when my Mom was "pulled" into a really earthy and amazing jewelry store and during that fun time browsing, shopping and mingling with the saleswoman, my sister asked if their bright fuchsia crystal on display happened to be for sale. It wasn't, but the woman explained that right around the corner was an amazing crystal/rock store that we just had to go in to, so we did.
While this magical crystal store is exactly "my kind of place," I honestly had no intentions of making a purchase and was perfectly happy just browsing along with my sister on her fuchsia rock quest. About five minutes into the shopping experience and without even realizing it was happening, I was pulled to a wicker basket filled with crystals I had never seen before and was completely unfamiliar with. I found myself picking each one up, examining them, holding them up to different light angles and asking this saleswoman random questions like "where did this one come from?" My mom and sister came over to see what had grabbed my attention and before I knew what was even happening, one of these Labradorite crystals was being purchased and the woman then asked me "would you like to know more about this particular stone?" I of course said yes and when she handed me the book on the "Labradorite" page, my jaw dropped and when only halfway through the description I felt a wild surge of energy come up through my feet and run all the way through me. I put the book down and exclaimed without even thinking "I just had an out of body experience." The saleswoman said she sees that happen quite frequently when people get drawn to the crystal/healing properties that are just right for them at the time. It was just the coolest, most unexpected moment to have, as I had zero expectations of going home with a new pet rock yet I know I was 100% guided to that store and pulled to that crystal with a clear purpose.
Here are some of the AWEsome properties of Labradorite:
Thank you Universe and thank you Labradorite!! :)
