Crystals for Expanded Perspective

Crystals for Expanded Perspective

2020 so far has been full of tough emotions, deep healing processes, and polarizing situations. In the midst of chaos, clarity will emerge – though it’s not always visible from the outset.

It’s important right now to keep your faith in your bigger vision. Even if your dream doesn’t seem possible, it definitely is; you just have to ignore the fear, worry, and doubt to continue pushing forward.

As you’re getting used to the new energy, and as you’re leaving behind your old patterns in favor of new habits, it may help to expand your perspective. Focus on the limitless possibilities in front of you instead of the issues of your past. In 2020, a lot of the “reasons” that things didn’t work out before no longer apply, which leaves your road to success wide open. Consider options that you wouldn’t have in the past, and remain free of judgment when you’re presented with something new. It really is a whole new world out there.

Crystals for Introspection

Crystals for Introspection

As a New Year’s exercise, I reviewed the 2010s in depth. I’m still thinking about some things in more detail, using my experiences and results to determine what I want in the next year – and in the next ten years.

In a nutshell? The 2010s encompassed my most important years to date of healing, transformation, and rebirth.

The amazing and wonderful experiences? I graduated law school, I started my business, I grew in my spirituality and my soul purpose, I met and married my husband, and I became a mom to my first child and my three beautiful dogs.

The tough lessons? I got divorced; I moved on from friendships and partnerships; and I went through powerful, in-the-trenches training with respect to self-love, authenticity, intuition, and boundaries.

You could say that I went through my dark night of the soul – and overcame it – in the first half of the 2010s, and that I truly discovered my path and purpose in the second half of the 2010s.

What did I learn? How to stand up for my values even in the toughest of situations; how to love unconditionally; how to forgive the unforgivable; how to embrace my truth publicly; and how to heal my mind, body, and soul – and help my clients heal theirs – with energy work and focused intention.

What a decade.

I worked with several crystals during this decade-review exercise, and I’ve found that they’re some of my favorite crystals for introspection.

My personal blend of crystals during this time? Scolecite for meditative thought; Halite for cellular and energetic detoxification; Ocean Jasper for gentle emotional release; and Rainbow Fluorite for psychic protection, mental and intuitive clarity, and lesson integration.

Crystals for 2020

Crystals for 2020

Happy New Year, and welcome to 2020!

The year ahead is going to be an amazing one, and we’ll all experience so much growth throughout this year and the coming decade. 2019 was a very effective, if at times painful, year. Tough, beautiful, and transformational, 2019 has prepared us so well for the energy in 2020.

2020 will be magical, and the magic will lie in the foundations that we’re able to build – in our personal relationships and our work, but also in our spirituality.

2020 energy is associated with the physical, so foundations will be built largely through the concrete steps taken on this plane. Building a relationship? Spend more quality time together, even if that’s working around the house on a weekend when you both have time off. Put your phones away. Connect by eating meals together and truly enjoying each other’s time. Building a business? Take stock of your financial statements, update your profit and loss sheets, and determine your priorities for investment. Deepening your spirituality? Meditate daily, take quiet walks, journal or free-speak, or work with your crystals. This year is less about esoteric knowledge itself and more about the practical application of that knowledge.

Looking for crystals that align with this year’s energy and promote certain objectives? Work with any from the list below.

Stamina, Passion, and Vigor

  • Carnelian
  • Dragon’s Blood Jasper
  • Red Garnet
  • Ruby
  • Vanadinite
  • Zincite

Mental Acuity and Fast Thinking

  • Green Fluorite
  • Heliodor
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Poker Chip Calcite
  • Sodalite
  • White Aragonite

Grounded Long-Term Planning

  • Brown Pietersite
  • Dravite

  • Picture Jasper
  • Smoky Quartz
  • Star Aragonite

Focused Meditation
