Does your love life seem less passionate than you’d like? Was there a time when things were more exciting for you and your partner?
Although the intensity of love is always highest at the “new love” stage, this is no reason that you shouldn’t experience fiery passion many years into your relationship.
“New love” has the distinct advantage of discovery – both partners have so many new things to explore about one another that much of the passion is provided by the excitement of discovering the unknown. When love is brand new, even the smallest things seem fantastically exciting.
I consider the passion that comes with new love to be somewhat artificial, because it inevitably diminishes.
Most of us are familiar with the feeling that “the honeymoon is over!” This is the time to wake up the real passion that is sleeping within you and your partner.
|For a “passion booster”…use the stone connected to the planet that is the center of so many love songs and poems that it has become synonymous with romance!
Moonstone has a long history as a stone of romance. According to the Romans, moonstone formed moonlight. Ancient Hindus believed it was composed from actual moonbeams. In India, this stone is considered so sacred that it is only displayed on a yellow silk cloth, as yellow is an especially sacred color. It is the stone of the Roman goddess Diana – who embodies fertility, abundance, nature, providence and freedom.
As a gift for lovers, the moonstone takes the highest rank due to its power to arouse passion and allow lovers to see into their future fortunes (good and bad). Intuition is a large part of the moonstone’s energy, as is fertility. Fertility traditionally means the bearing of children but also includes nurturing your love to thrive and grow in a healthy fashion.
Some of the ways you can intensify passion in the bedroom:
- Place a moonstone sphere or moonstone wand near your bedside. (Read more about how to use gemstone wands.)
- During a full moon, hold a moonstonein your power hand – visualizing deeper passion with your lover.
- Wear moonstone jewelry.
- Make a gift of moonstone to your lover after cleaning it of all others’ energy and have them keep it in a safe spot where others will not touch it.
