I’m Keeping the weekly wellness spoonfulls coming with the second installment of “a spoon full of”, this week I’m talking Crystals. I recently incorporated a crystal practice into my life and I’m digging it. I have a cluster of three crystals on my bed side table and I’ve felt a noticeable improvement in my anxiety. Sometimes I like to walk around holding my selenite when I’m feeling out of sorts and I swear it helps ground me. Each crystal has its own unique set of benefits so here’s a run down of the crystals I’ve been into. When selecting your own crystal pets I suggest just picking up what you’re drawn to and doing your researching later, if you’re getting into crystals you might as well trust their divine ability to find you.
1. Celestite: Of course I had to pick up my namesake crystal. This beautiful sky blue stone is derived from the Latin word caelestis, meaning celestial. It inspires deep peace and happiness. It’s an ideal crystal to place in your bedroom to bring tranquility and harmonious energy, encouraging restful sleep (it really does). It’s also supposed to bring spiritual maturity to Gemini’s, I only retained this tid bit because I’m a Gemini.lol
2. Selenite: This opaque stone usually comes in a pillar shape and can range in size from tiny to human height. Selenite crystals are remarkably peaceful, super helpful for type A individuals. This crystal is one of the only crystals that doesn’t need to be cleansed and can actually energetically clean your other crystals. The crown chakra (the purple one up top) is connected with the Selenite stone and can be used to contact your Guardian Angel or Spiritual Guides.
2. Quartz: My quartz is in the geode form which I think is très cute but it can also come in crystal chunks. Ancient civilizations utilized quartz to balance the body and clear the mind. It’s a powerful crystal that transmutes negativity and amplifies positive energy. It also directs high frequency energy into the body, stimulating spiritual, physical and emotional healing.
I hope this second installment of “spoon full of” inspires you to explore this wonderfully meditative practice
