As we find ourselves back in Lockdown 2.0 for the next month, we’re all in need a little bit more positivity and hope in our lives. So, why not seek solace in your crystals?
Over the course of this year we’ve learned that looking after ourselves is something we really need to do more. Taking some time to have some TLC and self-love will help you power through this month. Known as the universal stone for self-love, Rose Quartz, according to the Roman god of
desire and affection, Cupid, bestowed the crystal stone upon the Earth as a gift of love, passion, and happiness for all. We need to remember love ourselves unconditionally, especially through this next lockdown month.
Place your Rose Quartz crystal in a space where you can see it every day, such as your bedroom or bathroom.
Amethyst crystals are known to be a powerful emblem of peace and balance. This calming purple stone allows you to quiet and relax your mind, which can aid in sleep and meditation. This lockdown we’ll need to allow ourselves to rest and de-stress to preserve the uncertainty of the future.
This crystal is known for helping you unlock your third eye chakra. Amethyst can help you deepen your connection with your inner self. The more you work with your Amethyst crystal, you will be able to deepen your connection with your intuition.
Amethyst can help to remove any mental distractions or clutter so you can clear your head and find some room to breathe. By placing this crystal in a workspace, it’ll be able to provide a sense of peace when you feel you might need it. This stone will emit calming energy to create a more peaceful environment.
As a stone of manifestation, Black Obsidian is an important crystal for meditation when wishing to manifest. With its sharp flint-like edges and powers of protection, will help cut through ties and let go of destructive habits, shielding you against negativity. This month we’ll all do our best to block out negativity that may come our way.
Obsidian is the perfect stone to confront your shadow self and prepare you to overcome traumatic fears. This stone will help you cut through the nonsense and uncover lives. Black Obsidian will help you undergo a spiritual cleanse and transformation if you are ready for it. This month is the time that we can take some time to reflect on what we would like to confront and change for the better.
Clear Quartz is a must have for anyone’s crystal collection. Considered one of the most versatile crystals as it magnifies the vibrations of others around them, Clear Quartz can amplify your intentions. In these uncertain times we all need clarity to help us focus on what is important.
The Clear Quartz’s meaning allows you to see your path and live it fully. Call upon its energy when looking to manifest your different intentions. By wearing Clear Quartz jewellery, carrying the stone, and incorporating it into your space, you can surround yourself with crystal-level clarity. Life can
appear less muddled and this crystal can help you stay focused on your goals.
Known as the stabiliser, Agate is the stone you call upon for support when you need stability and grounding in your life – and in this next lockdown, we will all need to support each other more than ever. Throughout history different cultures, including Islamic civilisations, Babylonians, and Egyptians, have used Agate rock as a way to protect themselves against negative energy.
Agate’s soothing feel helps you to connect with the energy of the Earth by bringing harmony to your mind, body, and spirit, allowing you to become more centred. Agate’s properties have soft and gentle vibrations that can help realign your balance and peace.
Through this next month, turn to Agate to ground yourself and turn away from any negative energy and panic that might come your way.
