Are you ready to smash the sh!t out of 2019? Let’s do this!
1. For wealth, prosperity and monetary abundance
Crystals: Citrine, Pyrite, Green Stones
Citrine is well known for its energies which promote abundance. This joyful stone will open you up to all positive energy, and will allow you to manifest wealth in all its forms. When you first receive it, sit with your stone for a few minutes and do a quick meditation, asking your Citrine to help you attract financial prosperity.
If you run your own business, this gem is a must-have! Place it on your desk or within your draw to help attract financial success. You can also purchase a Citrine geode for your home, and place it in the living room to welcome a prosperous atmosphere. This stone is an essential for anyone wanting to start the New Year off on the right foot!
Pyrite which is also known as fool’s gold, is another stone symbolising good luck and fortune. Again, perfect if you have you own business, you can place it on your desk or within a cash register. Anyone will benefit from this stone by placing it in their purse or wallet. This high-manifester will have you making it rain in no time at all!
Green Gems are known as money stones in many cultures. Seek out some green jade, green aventurine, and green moss agate to get that fortune flowing! Jade is often made into jewellery so it’s easy to keep on you at all times.
No excuses, the next round is on you!
2. For relationships, love, self-love and emotional healing
Crystals: Rose quartz, Amazonite, Selenite
Rose Quartz is known as the universal stone of love. Love of others, and love of self. Love comes in many forms, not only intimate, but also in the love we share for friends and family. Association with the heart chakra and emitting a gentle, healing energy, we are always sure to keep this gem on hand to remind ourselves that love is all around us. Another benefit of this stone is that it helps to promote
more empathy and compassion, so if you struggle with these attributes, make sure you pick up one of these stones for your New Year’s toolkit.
Amazonite is more aggressive in energy than rose quartz, but if you’re looking for a stone which packs a punch in all things self-love, self-abundance and knowing your worth – then this one is for you!
Selenite works wonders when you want to clear your aura and help to repair any leaks or tears which may be causing negative energy to penetrate. Once you have repaired your aura, you will likely notice a significant change in your relationships, and your own personal mindset. So if you’ve been unlucky in love, you won’t dwell on the past or focus on the negatives. Time to move on to better and brighter things!
3. For good health and physical healing
Crystals: Those that are associated with the colours of each chakra, clear quartz
If you are looking for a crystal to help relieve pain or block energy within a certain part of the body, it’s time to do some chakra research. We can focus on chakras in more depth in a future post, but for now take a look at the image below, and notice the various colours which correspond with certain areas of the body.
Generally, you should be able to choose a crystal whose colour matches the area of the body in pain. For example – if you have a headache, you can use the purple amethyst to help relieve it. Or if you have issues with your thyroid, a blue stone which is associated with the throat chakra (consider blue calcite or blue lace agate) might be able to assist. It is important to remember however that crystal
healing is a COMPLENTARY therapy, and should NEVER be used in place of medicine.
Be sure to visit your GP for any serious concerns relating to your physical health.
Clear Quartz is known as the master healer and is known for stimulating the flow of energy throughout the body. Wear a quartz necklace daily to keep things in check and ward of negative vibes!
4. For overall happiness and positive vibes
Crystals: Yellow Jasper, Turquoise, Onyx
Yellow Jasper is your go-to for clarity, happiness and self-confidence. It will remind you that sunny days are not far away! It will change your thinking to be that of optimism by helping to stimulate positive vibrations. Turquoise will bring you energies of peace, calm and satisfaction, reminiscent of calming blue ocean waves, hitting the shore. Onyx transforms negative energy into positive, pretty cool right? It will help turn bad situations into blessings and turn negative thoughts into positive ones.
5. For keeping grounded
Crystals: Hematite, Smokey Quartz, Bloodstone
Hematite is well known for its grounding energy, as it helps to disperse of chaotic thoughts, allowing clarity to enter your mental state. It creates a protective environment around the home, (and you) against negativity. Place this stone in the corners of a room to create a power barrier from all those toxic vibes.
Smokey Quartz will keep you grounded by alleviating the stress of negative emotions such as jealousy, worry, depression, anxiety and fear. This is a great stone for smokers out there who have made it their goal to quit this year as it helps to resist that urge.
Bloodstone is associated with the base chakra (red) which relates to areas surrounding the base of the spine, leading to the legs and feet. It’s no surprise that if there’s a blockage in this area, we can feel off-balance and ungrounded. Red crystal energy is used to clear blockages and re-balance the Base Chakra, balancing your strength and stamina and restoring sense of power.
There is a whole world out there of amazing stones to help you in all aspects of your life.
These are our top picks (and some of our favourites) that we think you could benefit from in 2019. By all means, do your research and try out some different stones. Find ones whose energy you click with really well so you can get the most out of the experience and healing journey.
