Every December 31, it is so great to see everyone taking steps toward making the new year a better one for themselves. Positive energy fills the air as people begin to realize what they can let go of, or do more of, in order to create a better life for themselves. However, after a bit of time progresses, you may start to realize it isn't that easy to keep up with major changes. So... maybe you haven't been keeping up with your resolution, or maybe you are struggling to keep up with those positive changes. Don't give up! These crystals will help you persevere those goals.
Quit Smoking or Drinking:
Fun fact, this is one of the most common resolutions made. It is also one of the most broken resolutions. Giving up an addiction is one of the hardest things to do. When trying to overcome an addiction of any kind, Amethyst can be of great assistance. This crystal increases one's intuition and ability to make positive decisions. Its energies help you apply wisdom to your lifestyle, so you can get rid of the toxicities holding you back. Since ancient times, this crystal has been used to treat addiction and promote sobriety. Lepidolite is another crystal that carries similar properties, but has a strong soothing energy to help ease any sort of pain throughout the transitional process. Overcoming addictions or negative choices is definitely a big transition and life change. Lepidolite will help soothe the withdrawal symptoms and stress caused from entering the new stage of your life. Tiger's Eye is another crystal, specifically for smoking addictions, that can curb your urge to smoke chemically and physically.
Eat Healthy or Diet:
This was mine! I'm sticking to it just fine with the energies of my apatite and green calcite crystals by my side. Apatite suppresses the appetite, helps relieve uncontrollable eating, and helps boost your metabolism. Green Calcite is another great stone to use when you want to start eating healthy. This stone reminds you to nourish your body with what it truly needs... think leafy and green! Goldstone is another stone with health-oriented properties similar to green calcite. Goldstone will also help you remain focused on your health plan.
Exercising, Getting Fit:
Carnelian would be a great crystal to use if your plan was to get fit or exercise more. The energies of Carnelian bring a strong sense of motivation. Carnelian can be used to help you take action on any sort of goal in your life, and can help you manifest and act passionately upon that goal. Carnelian is also a great stone to use for boosting energy and endurance. Jasper is also a crystal that will help you more directly on your fitness plan. The energies in Jaspers encourage activity, strength, and endurance. If you are someone who goes to the gym after work, spend the day wearing a Jasper stone. If you work out in the mornings, sleep with one by your bedside.
The most important crystal when looking to attract love into your life is a Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz opens the heart up to the idea of nurturing, romance, and love. This stone is good for attracting the "right person" to come your way. Chrysocolla is another good stone for bringing on new opportunities for love; especially if you have been hurt in the past. Chrysocolla will help you wash away the pain of past experiences, so you can remember these lessons but also open your heart to a new romance.
Improving your current relationship
If you already are in love and just looking to better the relationship you are in, rose quartz and chrysocolla may not be the stones for you. Emerald is a good stone to wear when you are with your partner. It encourages passion in romance, as well as peace within the relationship. Ruby is another great stone to use that will give you the courage to share your love with another. Ruby allows you to see the beauty in yourself and in others, in ways you may not have before. Blue Chalcedony can also be used to improve trust, loyalty, and harmony within the relationship. It can bring peace within a partnership in which several arguments may occur.
Save Money, Improve Finances
The number one crystal you can use to improve your financial life is a Citrine. Wear this stone, hold it in your pocket, meditate with it, place it in your wallet, bring it to work with you; no matter what you do - make sure you are around this stone to improve your financial situation. Citrine has an amazing ability to increase prosperity and call upon wealth. For business owners and those in sales especially, this stone will bring in more business. If you are hoping for a raise, Aventurine would be a good stone to carry to increase your luck and call opportunities near. Aventurine will also help you acquire wealth.
Citrine, Carnelian, and Aqua Aura are all wonderful stones to use for manifesting. Labradorite, Amethyst, and Moldavite are wonderful stones to use for transformation. Citrine, Goldstone, and Charoite are stones that you can use to keep an optimistic mindset. The more positive you stay, the better your results will be. For assistance from spirit guides, the divine, angels, and other alternate realms, try working with Celestite, Amethyst, or Selenite.
Good luck with keeping up with resolutions. Remember it is never too soon or too late to begin to self improve. Every day is an opportunity to grow. Think positive, manifest your goals, and always turn to crystals for assistance.
