The last few months I’ve spent most of my crystal time with moldavite. As you may know, after you adjust to working with this intense, powerful reflector of a high vibration, you can spend a lot of time with it.
In the beginning, though, when you first encounter it, you may have some energetic flushing of heat as blocks that keep you vibrating on low frequencies are sort of zapped by the energy of the moldavite.
Many report a strong heart opening upon first seeing or touching a piece of moldavite. That was not my experience but, after working with it a lot over a couple of years, I do notice my heart markedly more open in a way unlike working with other heart-opening crystals. It’s not about compassion, forgiveness, and moving through stuck emotions so to be free of blocks as with my programmed pink opal, but is about a very powerful alignment with heart energy.
Among those first reactions, headaches are also common, and some report nausea and the aforementioned heat and flushing in various areas of their bodies. Whatever disempowers you becomes the focus of what has to shift when you spend time with this crystal, and so it could affect many areas of your body.
The above is also true when you graduate from a small moldavite to a larger one. And it’s also true for me personally when I get a new set of pieces and begin to energetically program them.
The first pieces I purchased were 5-6 grams each, then I moved up to 7-8 grams. In that 2nd group I purchased one for me that’s 20.9 grams, which is pretty large. Programming that second group pushed me into a new phase that feels clear and open.
Then about 6 weeks ago I purchased a third set of pieces 8-12 grams plus a 29-gram piece. Programming that set pushed me even further. Now what’s comfortable for me to hold in one hand is the 20.9 gram piece with a 12-gram and 7-gram piece. That’s almost 40 grams all together, which is a lot. I began a couple of years ago with a tiny 5-gram piece, and for a long time it was enough to have interesting clearing-out effects.
The point is that we adjust over time to being able to work with and hold the high vibration of moldavite. Understand that a bigger piece might not be better for you in the beginning, and that it’s normal to move up to slightly larger pieces over time, as you adjust and become able to adapt to the deeper impacts that larger pieces offer.
“On Moldavite Time” refers to my experience the last week or so, after putting away the Metatron auralite 23 and Metatron labradorite pieces I used to prep for a 4-day healing intensive. They worked – they did their job to help me open to hold space for 6 people to open and unwind some karma, as well as clear energy for them – and then it was time to rest a bit as Metatron’s intensity was stirring unconscious material into my dreams, turning them into nightmares for a few nights. Metatron’s vibration is uncompromising and is also about moving through blocks, but it pushes against blocks to dislodge debris. It’s an important effect, but I believe it’s not a 24/7 crystal.
After returning to work mostly with moldavite, I recognize that my self-definition and -expression are more in line with its high vibrations, meaning that I’m more confident and willing to let things be what they are, and respond as necessary.
Being on moldavite time, I can let things unfold as they need to because I feel empowered to make the right choices. I do have my own spats of feeling subject to the whims of a cold universe, but getting back with moldavite removes that fear, pain, and grief. I know it’s in there, and if I stop working with moldavite those parts of me might rise to the surface again, but for now I don’t need to be aligned with them as I focus on what needs doing. When they do come up again, I’m in a better position to appropriately contextualize them as parts of me and not believe their stories.
To be clear, working with a piece on a regular basis after adjusting to it, there are no headaches or nausea or other issues. You can establish a healthy baseline as it supports you in shifting and raising your overall vibration. After a time you might be drawn to another or a bigger one, or a gift might find you, and that’s how you would know you’re ready to move to a bigger piece.
Now I’m preparing to purchase another set, as 6 of the 7 most recent set plus the large piece all sold over the last 6 weeks, much faster than I expected. It looks like I might get about 200 grams total – a variety of sizes ranging from 6 to 18ish grams. I know that programming them will involve the same courtship dance as with all the other sets, and I’ll likely have to begin, take time off as I feel effects, and then begin again.
I currently have 3 programmed moldavites available, two 5-gram pieces and one 10.8-gram piece. You can see them here, as well as check out a video that compares moldavite to auralite 23, another high-vibrating crystal I work with quite often and sell.
