Stressing out at work? Or dealing with difficult coworkers? Clive Carter shares his pair of stones guaranteed to help…
Q: “I have a lot of stress at work and often have to deal with difficult people. Are there any crystals that can help me stay calm and balanced through the day?”
A: “If you have a stressful time at work, the best crystal for you is Blue Lace Agate. Use a chunk or even a carved piece as a paperweight on your desk and you will soon find that just looking at its gentle bands of pale blue and white in its subtle striped pattern will soothe and calm you.
“While you can find Blue Lace in some jewellery, in this instance it is best if you are able to see it during the stressful times in your working day, as this is what gives you the best cooling effect, as it eases the mind and removes the heat from anywhere you have a build up of energy, leaving you peaceful and content in your job.
“If it’s your work colleagues causing your stress levels to rise, then the stone you need is Labradorite – a wonderful Feldspar with flashes of blues and purples within its grey to green basic colour. This is the finest stone for personal protection, as it will stop you taking on board the negative or aggressive behaviour of your colleagues, allowing you to remain calm in almost any situation.
“Most importantly, you should be able to go home at the end of the day without carrying all of their stress and baggage that they pass to you. Labradorite is a very attractive stone, and many people choose to wear it as a piece of jewellery, (such as a pendant or earrings), but just a simple pocket or palm stone carried in your pocket at work with you each day will ease your tension immensely.” CLIVE CARTER
