Use of Moldavite in gemstone healing

Stone healing uses Moldavite to promote clairvoyance and the realization of being a spiritual being. Dissolution of (too) strong material attachment and liberation from worries about money and the future is supported. With the help of Moldavite the mental-spiritual quality of things can be grasped more easily, so that material aspects fade into the background. Moldavite strengthens the empathy and brings memories (again) to the surface, so that a deep insight into the meaning and the task of our existence becomes possible. With the insights gained in this way, unconventional and spontaneous approaches to solving problems and mastering complex tasks can be developed. For this Moldavite is gladly put on the "third eye".
