Labradorite crystals are supposedly good for a lot of things (link), but when I worked with them this week, my goal was to elevate my aura and increase my intuition. I think I’d settle for just “feeling better in general” but then it would be hard to see if the Labradorite actually did anything.
I spent 7 days working intensely with Labradorite. Here are my results.
If you want to read more about Labradorite in general, here is my post on that.

These results are obviously not scientific, but I can say that I always go into these ‘experiments’ with an open mind and I try my best. You may or may not have similar results, but hopefully my experience will at least guide you a bit.

Day 1 – Full Moon in Leo
I bought “Moonology” by Yasmin Boland and also bought her diary. I am going to use it all year (a larger experiment I’ll write about at the end). Today was the full moon, so there was a lot of work centered around that.
We worked on forgiveness and honestly I had a really hard time with this. Should you forgive a narcissist? Is it even worth it, when they don’t feel they did anything wrong, won’t change, and will continue to do the very things that crush you?
I spent way too much time thinking about this, and ultimately decided to simply forgive myself for not being able (or willing) to forgive them yet.
Interesting side note: I started out working with these two stones:
But today I got the heart in the mail that I forgot I ordered.
It was from The Crystal Council (where most of my crystals come from), but they shipped it separately from my subscription box for some reason. Getting this extra one in the mail was a nice ‘boost’ to reaffirm that this is what I should be doing this week.
Day 2 – Wiped Out
Today was exhausting, both mentally and physically. I got great sleep last night (for the first time in…years?)
I worked almost 11 uninterrupted hours, all very detailed and intricate work. When I finally crashed, I had no energy to do or work on anything.
However, I made a commitment to do this so I did my yoga and found a meditation on intuition:
In the meditation, we had to ask a question to have our intuition answer. I thought it would be answered by the time the meditation was over, but it wasn’t. Serious question: should you meditate while you’re high? That might seem dumb but I’ve never been able to fully, mentally let go and I kind of feel like I need to be on something to make it work.
Anyway, I don’t feel any more or less intuitive yet. Still 5 days to go, haha.
Day 3 – I Regret Doing This
Whelp, my intuition was right. That’s as specific as I can be, but I had a hunch about something, followed it and found out I was right. I didn’t want to be right.
However, I’ve noticed that I love the “thrill” of proving myself right, even at my own personal cost. I’m always on a quest to “find the truth,” therefore I attract people (friends, partners, etc) who hide things. It gives me the sense of insecurity that I’m used to from childhood, it gives me a mission (to find out the truth), and it gives me a dopamine rush when I find the proof.
The thing is, I don’t know what to do with the info once I find it. If everyone lies a little bit, then I should just accept it and move on (I guess?!) What good is intuition if it only reveals the truth, but not what should be done? My intuition only ever leads up to that point. I never know what’s next. This is a cycle I’d like to break.
I can definitely say that my intuition works really well, and it was either reinforced or aided by Labradorite. It works, but you might not like what it has to say.
Day 4 – Still Reeling
I don’t know what to do. They say “when one door closes, another opens”…what if the door is only half closed, and it’s also kinda broken so you have to struggle to open or close it, but also you love and know this door and you accept its broken parts. But on top of that, you have unlimited other doors that are wide-ass open but you have no idea what’s on the other side of any of them.
I tried meditating on intuition again, but it didn’t feel like intuition. It felt like anxiety and paranoia and reacting from fear and anger. Everything is telling me to just run, eyes closed, pick a door and run.
Day 5 – Doors
I’ve been an emotional mess. More so than usual, which is nuts. Maria Mena has gotten me through the absolute worst times in my life, and she comes through again:
If you haven’t heard her before, please check her out. Her lyrics are incredible and she puts herself through a vocal gauntlet in every song and blows my mind.
I’m still in an Anxiety vs Intuition battle. I’m also weirdly angry at my intuition. I feel like I wasn’t prepared for what I found, but then I also don’t know that I ever would be.
If it wasn’t winter time, I would take a long hike until I found the answer. There is a winter storm coming tonight, so I’m going to sit in my room and meditate and see if I get anything. I just need to know what to do now.
Day 6 – Confessions
I hit a breaking point and confessed to a problem I have. I can’t be specific, I’m not ready, but at some point I will talk about it. But now it’s out there and I can’t undo it.
Labradorite played a huge role, to be honest. I came to the point where I was ready to tell someone, exclusively through the work I’ve done with these crystals. They helped me crack my soul open and expose the sick parts, so now I can start moving forward.
I’ll be okay.
Day 7 – Snowstorm
We got over a foot of snow yesterday. I woke up sick as a dog. Still reeling from this week as a whole, I decided to end my Labradorite experiment early. I really don’t know if I can handle any more intuition or insights right now.
This will all lead to something good (or at least better) eventually, so I’m not upset that I had this experience.
The first crystal I ever worked with was Turquoise (you can see that post here) and it showed me a lot of problem areas in my life. I was unaware this would happen and didn’t know how to cope, so I thought I just hated Turquoise. I’m now in a place where I realize that these truths may be harsh, but they need to be said.
My Results Working with Labradorite Crystals:
- Overall, I think this was one of the most effective crystal experiments I’ve done. It kicked my ass, but it was undeniably partly due to the work I was doing with Labradorite, journaling and meditating.
- My intuition ramped up into high gear and I learned some really painful lessons about myself and my loved ones.
- I communicated my truths, even when it was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do.
- My soul was opened up, turned inside out and vacuumed clean. I feel horrible, but it was a necessary cleaning.
- Sorry to be vague, I just had several hunches confirmed and realized I need help – these are several different things/people/experiences but I’m lumping them together. I’ll talk about it when I’m ready.
My Recommendations for Working with Labradorite Crystals:
- Be ready to learn some shit you didn’t want to acknowledge. The truth is, you already knew this.
- If you learn any truths about yourself, take action on them. You’re facing these for a reason: it’s time to fix them.
- Know when to stop. I feel like I could have forced myself to do less, and maybe I shouldn’t have always used all 3 crystals. When working with crystals becomes a chore, it’s time to stop for a bit.
- Similar to #3, be gentle with yourself. This is not going to be easy and you’re going to have to allow yourself to rest physically and mentally.
