These are the stones I like to carry with me. Sometimes I switch it up, but I often find myself with these six. Even though I am not wearing them or showing off their beauty, I feel good knowing they are always with me. Whether it's in my pocket, my purse, or my pillow - these stones are there to protect, help, and heal me.
I carry the Rose Quartz because of how happy it makes me feel. Every time I hold this stone it makes me feel so at peace with everything. It takes all my worries away and directs my attention to the wonder that lives inside. I carry it because it means something to me. It makes me feel loved and reminds me I am loved. It was a gift to me from Vero at The Bodhi Tree in Sugarloaf, NY; the place I did my first custom show. This crystal shop is more like a spiritual getaway and Vero is a warm, gentle person who is lovely to be around. I carry the Rose Quartz because it makes me feel safe, like nobody can or will bring me down. I feel like my heart is protected, so I am able to see the best in everybody and give my love to them.
I carry the Black Tourmaline for protection. I feel it protects me spiritually and emotionally. It relieves me of any panic, worry, and fear. It helps ground me spiritually so I am not fatigued or drained. I carry it because it is one of my favorite stones. It was a gift from my mom who is also my best friend. She knows me better than anyone. I know she spent so much time picking out crystals for me when she went to Puerto Rico. I couldn't wrap or sell any because of how much I loved them all. We are always on the same wavelength. She has always been my main protector, but if she is ever not with me - the protecting properties of black tourmaline are.
I carry the citrine because of the properties. I have never had any special memory with this citrine or any citrine - but I love what it is meant to bring. It is a stone of abundance, of prosperity, and of luck. It is a manifestation stone for ideals, dreams, and goals. It is a stone of joy, bringing optimism and positive thoughts. It dissolves any negative energy, protects against negative energy, and holds no negative energy. It is a stone of control. It fills the Solar Plexus Chakra with power, anxiety relief, and trust. It clears any blocks and let's you beam with yellow light.
I carry the Smoky Quartz because it is another great protection stone. I especially love that it is protective during travel. I bought this in the summer of 2014 - a summer of adventure! I drove to Delaware for a music festival (Firefly!!) filled with late nights and laughter, Tennessee to stay on a house boat for a week for full relaxation and fun, New Jersey to visit my cousin for a crazy night at a rap concert (Eminem), Connecticut for an awesome concert (Queen!) and such a fun night, and more. It was nonstop travel and adventure. Smokey Quartz protects against road rage, harm from other drivers, and traffic or road issues. I carry it for safety - and for all the memories of such good times.
I carry the Lapis Lazuli and the Blue Kyanite for communication. One to help me listen and one to help me speak. One to dissolve the negative thoughts and one to bring in wise, intelligent ones. One to help me see past what people say, and one to help me think before I speak. Communication is important to control. It is how we meet people, make friends, network, or serve. It is an aspect of my daily life and with the help of my lapis lazuli and blue kyanite I feel protected and confident doing so.
I woke up sick today with a pain in my abdomen and a sore throat. I swear I get sick around this time each year which is so frustrating because it's the beginning of summer. So instead of being outside or on my porch, I spent all day curled up in a blanket inside. I put on the Sodalite because it is a stone for the throat chakra. My throat cleared up so nicely after this stone worked through the energy center. It remains a little sore but the sinus pressure is completely gone.
I didn't put on the stillbite until later. Stillbite is excellent for physically removing toxins in your body. I decided I might need an extra detox boost for my body so I made some lemon cucumber water. This paired with my stillbite was a great combination. Stillbite is actually a great stone for bringing joy and peace to the wearer as well. I definitely felt the instant pink vibration of joy rush through my heart chakra before anything else. So at least if this stone didn't help remove toxins yet, it put me in a good mood.
Today I am wearing the new Blue Chalcedony pendant. I chose this pendant today knowing the properties it carries. I needed something for my throat chakra today. I woke up in a very bad mood and with the way my day was going, I knew it would cause me to say something I would later regret. Even though I try to let things go that cause me discomfort or anger, it is easy to dwell on situations and build up unneeded anger and worry. Blue Chalcedony is a great stone for relieving anger, worry, and fear. Not only does it relieve the negative thoughts, but it is a great stone for bringing one into a state of optimism and trust. The throat chakra is balanced by wearing this stone so it allows for the expression of what we truly feel. Bringing all these elements together allows for peaceful, optimistic expression of thoughts, words, and actions - eliminating any concealed anger, fear, worry, doubt, etc.
Throughout the day I watched my attitude change. It went from being annoyed that I had to clean my messy apartment, to being excited to have a fresh, clean space; being frustrated with the amount of work I had to do, to feeling excited to make some new pieces; feeling irritated and annoyed with the people around me, to feeling talkative and relaxed around the friends I see. My negative outlook on today turned around so quickly!
I appreciate the optimism that this pendant brought me today. I am a firm believer in the law of attraction. The law of attraction is the theory that what you think is what you attract - so focusing on the positive will bring good things and focusing on the negative will bring the bad. For example: you're getting ready for the day and you are running late. You're speeding to work, worrying about getting pulled over - and you hear sirens. Just as you think your day could not get any worse - you spill coffee all over your new shirt. All those moments you put in worrying, the universe heard your words. You attracted more negative to happen. Instead of thinking about how your day couldn't get worse, think about how it could get better.
I am sure that without the optimistic energies this pendant brought me, my day would have went downhill, fast. Instead, I was brought optimism and because I was brought optimism I had the loveliest day. Thank you Blue Chalcedony!!
