Crystals can be a wonderful way to give yourself an extra boost when you’re feeling overwhelmed, tired, frustrated or hopeless. While there are many uses and modalities associated with crystals; the biggest benefit from crystals is the phenomenal psychological effect on our wellbeing.
Every one I talk to these days are completely overwhelmed by what’s going on in their life. Everyone it seems is having a hard time. For very different reasons of course, but nevertheless its not an easy time to be a human.
Crystals can be a wonderful way to give yourself an extra boost when you’re feeling overwhelmed, tired, frustrated or hopeless. While there are many uses and modalities associated with crystals; the biggest benefit from crystals is the phenomenal psychological effect on our wellbeing. When we associate a particular crystal with a particular mood, or personal attribute it helps us to naturally enhance the mood/attribute. The more we look at the crystal, the more we hold it and touch it, the more mood /attribute is enhanced. For the case of Covid Fatigue….something we are ALL experiencing these days, I personally recommend these top 6 crystals:
Apache Tear: A fantastic protective crystal. Apache Tear gently protects the aura from absorbing negative energy and is helpful for grounding. In regard to the pandemic specifically, this helps you to not absorb the emotions of the people around you. It also helps to soften and anchor your own emotions. While there are many different types of protective crystals, I like this one the best as it doesn’t irritate the skin.
Sunstone: It is considered the “Leadership Stone” because it helps you to raise up your personal power and expand your consciousness. It inspires enthusiasm and joy as well. During the lockdown, we all need a bit of help finding joy in our daily life, so a sunstone may give you the boost you need to help you to find that joy in the life you are currently living.
Lepidolite: Spiritually speaking, it is most commonly used to help stimulate positive synchronicities in your life. It is also thought to help reduce feelings of anxiety, and to help you deepen your meditative experiences. Being able to find patterns of positivity in stressful times is crucial to help you maintain your sense of hope and balance.
Gold Tiger Eye: I don’t know about you, but I’ve been experiencing a lot of brain fog during this pandemic. It’s a totally normal part of the experience, but certainly a frustrating one at that. But keeping a tiger eye in your pocket or bra, or by wearing one in a piece of jewelry it will help reinforce your desire to pay attention to details better. As you can do this, it will help to boost your self-confidence and your courage.
Blue Lace Agate: Is very popular because of its soothing and calming nature. It can be used to help bring a sense of peace to your mind while encouraging you to allow for free expression of thoughts & feelings. Each blue lace agate is unique in a layered format of shades of soft blues and whites. These is a great stone to just sit and look at. Get lost in its waves, just like you would the waves of the ocean. As you give it your total focus, its easier to let go of upsetting thoughts.
Unakite: is a very unusual looking crystal in shades of moss green and coral-pink. The dueling colours as thought to be excellent in helping you to balance your emotions. In your spiritual or energy work it’s a good tool to aid you in the goal of breaking through self-imposed barriers to achieve a higher level of success. Most importantly, unakite is used to assist in loving yourself just the way you are.
One thing we know for certain, the pandemic won’t last, good times will come again. We know from historical pandemics that most likely the times to come won’t just be good…..they will be great! So while we all persevere, I encourage you to be gentle with yourself and with each other. Perhaps consider giving these crystals a try. If you do, please leave us a comment and let us know which one was your favourite.
