Harness the power of gems to ensure a truly magical holiday – crystal guru, Judy Hall explains how!
In the language of gemstones, diamond symbolises purity and eternity. Wearing it induces clarity of thought and stimulates the imagination, so this could be a useful stone in helping you find the right present for someone. It also protects against geopathic stress and electro-magnetic frequencies – helpful if you are overdoing the gadget googling and need to join in more with the festive celebrations.
Affirmation: ‘I see with clarity that I am an essential part of the Earth and I offer to the planet my loving care and concern, fun and joy’
Selenite symbolises universal love and it draws light down to fertilise the Earth in the depths of winter. Known as ‘foam of the full moon’, selenite stands at the threshold of spirit and matter. It is traditionally used for seeing the future and for accessing angelic consciousness. This stone is thought to help release core feelings that lie behind emotional blockages. It is important at this time to let them go, to allow space to bring in the spirit of Christmas.
Affirmation: ‘I see the divine in everything and everyone including myself’
Rose quartz brings unconditional love and supports peace. In crystal-lore this beautiful gem is an emotional healer that transforms your relationship with yourself and others, creating harmony. It can teach us how to love and accept ourselves and others, forgiving the past and living from the heart. If you feel dis-empowered or unloved, use rose quartz to remind yourself of a time when you felt totally positive, potent, loving and accepting – bringing that feeling into the present moment.
