About 20 million years ago a meteorite shower fell in the
Moldau Valley of Czechoslovakia.
The result of this shower was Moldavite, a rare crystal
of a bottle-green, translucent hue.
Although some people believe that it is a true meteorite
(formed in outer space), it is more generally believed that
it originates from rock that was struck by a meteorite and
According to the latter belief, Moldavite combines extraterrestrial
and terrestrial properties.
It is generally considered to be one of the stones very
important for this particular phase of human evolution.
Many people feel that at this time there are countless souls
who are not originally from Planet Earth, but from the Pleiades,
Sirius, Orion, and other systems.
The belief fuelling this thought is that for our Earth to
fully heal itself, new races of beings are needed, those
with what might be described as a more cosmic view of existence.
These souls, incarnating for the first time on this planet,
(and in some cases for the first time in a physical body)
need a way to be grounded in the unique energies of this
planet, and Moldavite is one of the helpers for this.
You don't have to believe this theory, however, to benefit
from Moldavite, for we can more generally look at it as
a stone that can both help us be comfortable in physical
existence and remind us that our Earth is part of a much
larger system of consciousness.
When placed on the third eye, Moldavite helps us to establish
the cosmic connection.
When placed on the heart it teaches us to appreciate the
gift of being here on Earth.
On a more practical level, many people have reported that
Moldavite helps to release all that is no longer needed
for personal growth: old ideas: leftover emotional/mental
habits, whatever you know on a deep level needs to go.
Because its energies are so powerful it's a good idea to
keep it near you a lot when you first get one and to meditate
with it regularly. Whenever Moldavite is used in meditation
it is recommended that a grounding stone: Black Tourmaline,
Hematite, Tiger's Eye, Smoky Quartz, Red Jasper, or Obsidian,
be placed by the feet for grounding purposes.
You will find in time that more and more things seem to
be unnecessary: the relationship you're hanging on to because
it's comfortable and you don't like to be lonely, for example.
You may find it more and more important to be honest with
both yourself and others.
So even if you don't believe in extraterrestrial beings,
Moldavite is a valuable stone for you, but if you're just
a bit curious, Moldavite may open some doors.
What these doors open to, well, you'll have to decide that.
