Crystals to bring back the Sunshine
Disclaimer: Whilst I believe Crystals to be amazing and powerful, my jewellery should not be considered as a substitute for conventional medicine. If you have any kind of health issue, you should consult your doctor. I would like to advise that when I talk about, post or give advice relating to the healing properties of crystals and stones, these are my own personal beliefs and the results of my research. Although a crystal or stone is alleged to have one or more healing properties, either physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, it does not mean that you will definitely experience or benefit from these properties.
So all the joyful celebrations of Yule, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year are over and for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere the lack of daylight, sun and energy hits you hard.
You feel sluggish, bloated and miserable (so do I).
Remember those Summer days, when you open your back door and step into the Sunshine, your children happily play for hours in your beautifully landscaped garden whilst you sunbathe on a stylish cushioned lounger, you eat green salads al fresco, your tummy was flat, ok me neither…
But, the lack of light and warmth can really drag your mood down.
Mini-Eggs are back in the shops (yay) but Spring and Easter Sunshine aren’t going to be here for eons.
How can you survive this bleak and boring time?
You know that keeping active, getting outside in the middle of the day as much as poss all helps.
But how about some fun Crystals to try?
Here’s my favourite happy, energising, joy inspiring, mood lifting stones to bring back the sunshine into your life.
Amber is formed from fossilised organic natural resins from Ancient Forests. Imagine all the sunshine used by Trees to live and grow. The life force energy of that Ancient Sunlight is literally preserved within Amber. This gives Amber a “solar” quality, that energises, warms, and carries Light Energy.
Citrine is a form of Quartz, with it’s yellow colour coming from Iron impurities that become included in the atomic structure as it crystallises. Most Citrine is actually heat treated Amethyst, but although I usually have snobbish thoughts about synthetically altered Crystals, the properties of this Citrine are so awesome it doesn’t matter to me. It gives a warm and sunny Golden Ray energy, that uplifts your mood, energises, bringing positivity, optimism, happiness and playfulness. Just what we all need in the dreary Winter months.
Sunstone is a Feldspar from the same family as Moonstone- with glittering orange-brown inclusions. It carries the “Solar Ray”, and energy of Ra, the Sun God (Ahsian 2007). It’s glittering sunshine energy encourages our “sunny sides” to shine (Gienger 2015) and brings us the energy of action, optimism, warmth, self-worth, and happiness. It connects us to our internal light, raises our vibrations and lifting our mood.
Carnelian is a Chalcedony (from the Quartz family) that contains Iron. It has more of an Earthy energy than the Sunshine stones, but I’ve included it as it’s warming energy is just what we need at this time of year. It enhances your life-force energy – boosting your vitality, energising, strengthening and fortifying (Ahsian 2007).
I’d love to hear any of your tips for getting through Winter.
With Love and Crystal Blessings
