The moon is waning right now, and generally speaking, the waning moon is always a spectacular time for release. To amplify the energy, we’re currently in the last complete moon cycle of the year, as the moon cycle beginning on December 6, 2018, won’t end until January 4, 2019. This gives us an amazing opportunity to release whatever isn’t serving us so that we begin 2019 with fresh energy, ideas, and attitudes.
If you aren’t sure what you want to release, make a list or talk it out. What consistent patterns have affected your friendships or romantic relationships in negative ways? Is there an emotional state that you’re prone to that causes miscommunication more often than not? Do you tend to be stubborn, jealous, angry, apathetic, timid, anxious, or sad? What can you shift in your life to minimize toxic feelings and create more happiness, love, joy, and abundance? Do you usually keep your thoughts positive, or do you frequently think thoughts that are catty, self-deprecating, or judgmental?
You may want to focus on shedding those physical possessions that aren’t in your best interest to hang onto, also. Clearing clutter from our homes is an amazing way to revamp the energy and allow the space for new developments to take place. Hanging onto clothes that you haven’t worn in 2 years? Donate them to a charity that helps the needy (but do your homework first – some charities like Dress for Success, the Vietnam Veteran’s Association, and the Salvation Army are rated highly, but others are not) or even sell them if you prefer. But get them out of your space. And while you’re at it, go through the rest of your things as well.

Happy 11/11! Today is a magical day of manifestation that is perfect for setting objectives, determining plans, putting foundations into place, and visualizing and flowing toward all that you desire to have in your life. The things on which you focus are the things that you attract – today especially, focus on those things that you want to happen, rather than the things that you don’t.
What have you been yearning to do? What thoughts have been in the back of your mind, that you could and would only do if X, Y, or Z? What would happen if you set those conditions aside for a moment and instead focused on the achievement of your desires? Release the fear, doubt, and worry, and visualize the end result. Feel the feelings, get behind the new story, and take the action needed to make it happen.
While you’re manifesting, it can’t hurt to have a few crystals around. Below are some of my top crystals for manifestation. These are perfect to keep in your receptive hand while meditating or writing your list of goals; they’re also great to keep near you on a desk, in your pocket, or in your handbag as you’re taking action toward your desires.
- Aqua Aura Quartz
- Rainbow Aura Quartz
- Clear Quartz
- Herkimer Diamond
- Green Aventurine
- Natural Citrine
- Libyan Gold Tektite
Whether you’re a psychic reader delivering a reading or a consumer receiving a reading, you can work with certain crystals to more easily connect with your angels and guides and to your intuitive senses during a reading. I suggest pairing whatever crystals you choose with grounding crystals so that you remain anchored to the Earth at all times.
If you’re giving a reading, this can result in clearer messages, more accurate readings, and higher client satisfaction. If you’re receiving a reading, this may help your interpretation of the messages that you receive, your connection to your reader, and your sense of your guides’ energy during the process.
Always hold strong boundaries and make a non-negotiable rule that you are open only to those energies of the highest vibration and in your highest and best good.
During the reading, you may wear the crystals, hold them in your receptive hand (often your non-dominant hand), set them on the table near you, keep them in a pocket or bra, or stow them in a handbag or backpack close to you. The key is to have them within your auric field; within arm’s reach is usually a good bet.
The following crystals are all beneficial for psychic readings.
- Chevron Amethyst
- Lapis Lazuli
- Purple Anhydrite (Purple Angelite)
- Rainbow Fluorite
- Purple Fluorite
- Rainbow Moonstone
- Black Moonstone
- Hawk Eye
- Clear Quartz
- Super Seven
You may have a few crystals for angelic communication,* and you may have tried meditating with them. But have you considered what else to do to with these crystals to connect with your angels further or in a different way?
One way to connect with your angels is to work with them while you sleep. For this, choose one or more of the crystals for angelic communication and sleep with the crystal(s) at your bedside or in your pillowcase (you may want to place them in a pouch so they don’t easily roll out of your pillowcase).
While holding your crystals before placing them, set the intention that these crystals help connect you with your angels so that you may download information or guidance during your sleep. Always retain the boundary to work with only those beings who have your highest and best interest in mind.
My favorite crystals to use to connect during sleep are angelite, celestite, apophyllite, chevron amethyst, and amethyst. Although crystals like danburite and clear quartz are great for connecting to one’s angels during meditation, they do not help with sleep.
*If you didn’t see my recent post on Crystals for Angelic Communication, here’s the link to the article: http://bit.ly/angeliccommunicationcrystals.
Crystals are amazing for enhancing angelic communication. To open up communication with your angels or with particular archangels, first enter a meditative state by sitting or lying down in a sacred space, breathing deeply, and letting go of your thoughts by focusing on your breath or on your body. As thoughts do come up, simply observe them; don’t force them away.
Once you feel sufficiently relaxed, call in your angels. Always hold the intention to work with only those beings of the highest love and light, who have your highest and best interest in mind. Pay attention to anything you see, hear, feel, or become aware of while in this state.
Below are just a few of the crystals that assist in angelic communication. If you’re drawn to others, listen to your intuition! There are many crystals that work well for this purpose.
- Optical Calcite
- Clear Quartz
- Rutilated Quartz
- Aqua Aura Quartz
- Angel Aura Quartz
