I love using crystals to help channel my energy; whether I need healing and relaxation, to love more or to be more receptive of love, to be more open to the universe.. There is always a crystal that has got your back. Think of a crystal like a magnifying glass of the universe’s energy; it helps you channel whatever intention you infuse it with. I have a few pouches I keep my crystals in and I always try to keep a few in my purse; I pick the stone depending on what I feel like I need. Another amazing trick is to grab some jewlery with whatever stone sings to you! A combination of both wearing and carrying your stones is extra powerful. Don’t know where to start with your collection? Here are five crystals to get you started. After purchasing your crystal, you need to make sure you clear it of any energies it may have accumulated (from other people touching it/from sitting…etc). Leave it under the full moon for the night, or leave it in salt for 24 hours. Salt is the smallest crystal and will absorb any energy left in your stone!
Clear Quartz is a great crystal that helps to purify your energy and cleanse you of negativity. It can easily be attuned to whatever intention you want to set it with, whether it’s to be more focused and centered or to connect more to your higher power. This crystal is perfect to carry around with you if you need some extra white light and positivity.
Rose quartz is connected to the crown and heart chakra; it encourages love and compassion of all kinds. Whether you need to love others or yourself more, this stone is the stone to help. I love carrying a piece of rose quartz to help me connect to the universe and all it’s love; I’m a firm believer you cannot love too much. This stone is perfect for all types of love; whether you need more compassion, healing, self love, or simply a connection to your heart chakra.
Amethyst is the ultimate stone for healing. It’s connected to the third eye and it’s a great stone for transformation. It’s a spiritual stone that’s easy to find and wonderful when you need to center, breathe and just take a moment to connect to your own intuition. I love having a piece of amethyst with me in my purse, and especially by my pillow for peaceful dreams.
Blue Lace Agate
I’m human; I get angry when I shouldn’t especially at the ones I love the most; my family. I can always use a little hand on getting that under control. Blue lace agate is a powerful stone that can help ground you and lessen your anger. Blue Lace Agate is seriously powerful in aiding with communication since it has strong ties to the throat chakra. Blue Lace Agate can aid you in easing your effort with communication, whether it’s verbal or written, and it’s a good stone in aiding astral travel. Like all agates, it’s also a protective stone.
Obsidian is pretty much the ultimate stone to protect you from negativity. If you’re constantly surrounded by negative people or situations (and you can’t control it), please PLEASE stock up on obsidian. Obsidian the equivalent to a bubble of white light, grounding you and helping you to embrace your whole self. This stone will not only keep negativity away but it will become a sort of shield for your own mind, body and soul; it helps protect you spiritually and metaphysically. Obsidian is a great stone with transformation too since it’s magma that cooled to quickly to form glass. Obsidian helps us understand that sometimes we need change to grow into our own power and strength.
