As we welcome a new year it is important to be in the best mental, physical, and spiritual space. Kick off of what will be one of the most exciting and promising years in a powerful, high vibrational state. The following list features not only the best healing crystals, but also some other powerful allies that can help you manifest, conquer, and accomplish all of your goals as well as overcome any obstacles.
Decide and declare that this year will be the best one yet!
Blue Kyanite can be used to align all of the chakras. When your major energy centers are cleared and balanced, you function at optimal capacity. Carrying or wearing Kyanite regularly will help you stay sharp and focused. Place a piece on your third eye during meditation to activate your Ajna chakra.
Black Kyanite can help clear any negativity. Also, it cleanses all other crystals and stones. Another great use for Black Kyanite is to repel bad dreams and night terrors. I personally have used it at night when I have trouble sleeping. Keep a piece on your nightstand for protection.
If you are reading this, chances are that you and I have one new years resolution in common: Pay off debt and make more money! Citrine is the daddy of all money stones. This gorgeous, easy to find, and oh-so fashionable crystal can help you attract wealth and abundance by activating your wealth consciousness. It is associated with the Solar Plexus chakra which is the driving force of our will, manifestation, and creativity. Keep a piece in your office, studio, or cash register. Wear it proudly, for it is a beautiful yellow crystal that looks great in rough, polished, or in gemmy form.
Lepidolite is available in a range of colors (Rose, Lilac, grey, periwinkle, and blue) and it resonates with the heart chakra. It helps awaken in us love for the self and others. When used in meditation and healing it helps us understand and accept any incompletions we have with our past. It brings serenity, relaxation, and stress relieve to those who wear it or carry it regularly. It is an ally to help overcome any self-esteem issues, self-criticism, regret, and frustration.
Delightful to look at! This beautiful crystal is available in a wide range of colors. The most visually stunning is the “Rainbow Fluorite” variety which combines different colors and properties in a single piece. The main function of this crystal is to aid with concentration. It is the perfect tool for students, writers, artists, philosophers, and great thinkers. It enhances mental clarity and thus it is a valuable crystal to wear when starting a new job or project. Three years ago, when I started working for a new company, I wore a Rainbow Fluorite bracelet every day during my training / probation period. It actually did help me learn and understand the many processes and procedures involved with the position. If your goal this year is to focus and excel then Fluorite is for you!
If you are ready to transform and attract change then hop on the Moldavite train! Countless books, articles, videos, and testimonials are continuously published telling inspiring and intriguing stories regarding the power and mystical properties of Moldavite. Many have reported that they have experienced transformational and spiritual experiences while wearing or working with it. Moldavite is a variety of Tektite, which is actually a meteorite. This stone is literally out of this world! Word of caution: Moldavite is not for everyone. Some experience side effects such as dizziness, flushing of the face, heat or anxiousness when coming in contact with the stone. To learn more about this fascinating stone check out my article “Starseed Stones: Moldavite“.
Gentlemen, you might want to pay attention to this one: Pyrite is represented in The Crystal Ally Cards as Male Power. It is a stone that awakens masculine energy, manifestation, action, vitality, and virility. It also boosts creativity and leadership skills. If you are ready to take on the role of Boss, CEO, Director, or Manager this year wearing Pyrite is a must! Ladies, do not be put off by the masculine elements associated with Pyrite. Wearing Pyrite combined with other stones such as Lapis Lazuli can bring out your inner queen.
Obsidian is a stone that is created when molten lava cools quickly. There are several varieties, the most popular include Black, Golden Sheen, Silver Sheen and Rainbow. There are also white, blue, and Snowflake Obsidian types that are also beautiful. The one I strongly recommend for protection is Black Obsidian. Obsidian has been used widely trough history by healers, witches, magicians, and shamans as a stone of physical and spiritual protection. It eliminates negatives energies in ourselves, and out environment. It creates a shield to protect us and acts like a vacuum to absorb negativity lingering in our surroundings. Keep a Obsidan sphere as a centerpiece in your living room or bedroom. They look chic go well with any type of decoration. Wear it as jewelry (make sure the piece is making contact with your skin, such as in the form of a bracelet) to have protection at all times.
Rose Quartz is a beautiful variety of quartz. It is sugar, spice and everything nice! Use this crystal to attract romance, friendship, joy, peace, and overall well-being in your life. Some of its healing properties include, emotional healing, stress relief, and relief from self esteem issues. Rose quartz is beneficial for children and pets as it radiates positive soothing energy. Wear as jewelry to radiate a love vibration that is irresistible. Add a piece to your moisturizer or face cream to benefit from beautifying effects. Check out this cool article for more ways to add rose quartz to your beauty routine. Keep a piece in your home where it is visible to enjoy a sweet and gentle energy that all guests and even house plants will appreciate!
Are you trying to cut back on guilty pleasures and overcome addictions this year? Amethyst may be the crystal for you! Amethyst is known to stimulate the crown chakra, help control addictions, and to awaken a connection with the divine. There are many ways to work with Amethyst; Wear it to align with the vibration of gratitude. Keep a cluster or specimen at home to radiate healing energy (specially beneficial if you work as a therapist or counselor), drop a clean piece into a water container to rest over night under the full moon to create a drinkable elixir. To help with addictions, meditate nightly (A great way to do this is to chant using an Amethyst bead mala) and then place a piece under your pillow. Also, you can create crystal grids to attract healing energy and a connection to your guides and spirits.
Considered sacred by many cultures and traditions, Turquoise is a must have for healers and public personalities. Turquoise stimulates the throat chakra, and is a great stone for those who work as teachers, speakers, call center agents, sales, coaching, and any other profession that involves verbal communication. It helps us say the best thing at the right time. Turquoise can be used to heal and soothe a sore throat. Place it on the throat area during energy healing to clear and align the chakra. Turquoise is believed to bring protection to travelers against theft and harm. Carry a piece with you always in your car and luggage. If your goal this year is to travel the world make sure to bring your Turquoise talismans along for the ride!
