Now that you’re getting settled into the New Year, you might have some ideas of how you want to rock 2018. Maybe you have a new fitness goal? Or thoughts about how to get your business or career back on track. Maybe you’re feeling like it’s time to start that eating healthy regime. Whatever you’re looking forward to for the year ahead, having a clear focus on what you want to achieve, and a couple of supportive tools at your disposal can help you crush your goals. I thought I’d share my favourite stones with you, to get you going.
Moss Agate: Associated with new beginnings and growth, moss agate has the energy you need to tap into the potential of a new year ahead. Its vibration of love connects it to the heart chakra. Use this stone to bring love into your life, connect to Mother Earth, and soothe emotional wounds.
Moonstone: This powerful stone represents feminine power and protection. Moonstone is a gemstone of the seventh chakra, or our spiritual centre. You can use it to help strengthen your intuition and deflect negativity. While it represents feminine power by activating kundalini energy in women, it’s also a great stone for men in that it promotes emotional balance.
Citrine: A stone of the solar plexus chakra and is used to build confidence and to call in financial success. It’s a stone of manifestation, personal will, and clears the mind, while warmly stirring the soul to action. Carrying the power of the sun, it comforts and energizes and can be used to help manifest and maintain financial success.
Here’s how you can use them in your everyday life:
Wear them or keep them in your pocket: When you wear your favourite stones or crystals, your energy connects to theirs. The vibration of the crystals work with your energy to clear any blocks you may have in the chakras they’re associated with. Your body will intuitively know what it needs from every stone. Have fun and get creative with your crystals. You can keep some under your pillow, at your desk, or even tuck them in your bra (I’m not kidding!) The whole idea is to keep your favourite stones close to you to work with your energy.
Meditate with them: There are a few ways you can meditate with your malas. You can use a mantra or intention that resonates with you to help manifest your desires by using the 108 stones to keep count. The other way is to place your mala directly on the chakra it’s meant to help balance – either on the front or back of your body. The Law of Attraction teaches us that what we believe, we receive. So keep those positive thoughts coming and trust that you can create the shifts in your life that you’re looking for.
Bathe in them: If you’re like me and can appreciate a hot bath at the end of the day to unwind, step into a bath with your crystals. Water is an incredible energy conductor and it will help to amplify your crystals’ energy. By submerging yourself within the same water, your auric energy gets a blast of cleansing power. Just do be careful – some crystals don’t do well being immersed in water. Water can be corrosive to some crystals so double check online.
Above all else, remember to take it easy on yourself. If you’ve made any resolutions or set goals for the New Year, you might find yourself occasionally falling off the wagon – and that’s ok! Just do your best and check in to remind yourself of why you set those resolutions or goals in the first place. If you feel like you need to send yourself some extra love, you can use this Loving Kindness meditation to get back on track:
May I be happy
May I be healthy
May I be safe
May I live with ease
May I be myself.
